I've been very happy with this mouse. the battery finally ran out today, which means it lasted for almost 2 months. Considering how much I use it, and the fact that it runs on just one AA battery, I'd say that's a pretty long time. The battery life would probably be even better if I had regularly turned it off between uses. The mouse installed fine on both the Windows and Linux partitions of my PC, but when running Linux it sometimes gets a glitch where the wheel scrolls in huge increments. However, removing and reinserting the dongle corrects the problem.
The mouse is compact and easy to carry around, yet is still big enough that using it doesn't force your hand into awkward positions. As for the dongle, it's extremely small, so you don't have to worry about it bending or breaking the USB port unless you're actually aiming for it. I've also used the mouse on just about every surface possible, including my dog, and have never had trouble with tracking.
This is a very good product, and if you don't have a built-in Bluetooth adapter or don't want to go through the (albeit slight) trouble of pairing a Bluetooth device, I'd definitely recommend it.
Update November 30 2013:
Still rocking it 3 years later. This thing is invincible. I don't even remember the last time I changed the battery. Works great on the Mac I have now as well.
+ Super responsive.
+ Plug it in and it will work almost instantly.
+ Has On/Off switch on mouse to help you conserve battery life.
+ Very comfortable. I have smaller hands, so this fits perfectly.
+ Includes a safe-keeping spot inside the mouse for the receiver, for when you want to take it somewhere.
+ Tick-based scroll wheel with nice ridges on the wheel. Perfect!
- A bit smaller than it appears in images, but it is a "mobile" mouse after-all. Fits perfect for my hands, but could be a concern with those that have large hands.
- Clicking is a little louder than you'd like, due to the fact that the buttons are a bit "loose." You can tap the right mouse button without trying to make it click, and you can hear the sound it makes from the button tapping the base.
- Receiver was actually a bit difficult to plug into the USB.
~ There is an OFF SWITCH for this mouse, on the very mouse itself. I thought I simply had to unplug the receiver from the USB, but that actually does not turn it off. Just remember to switch the mouse off from the bottom of the mouse whenever you are done, if you want to conserve battery life (complaints about battery life probably all stem from people not realizing you must turn the mouse off).
~ Although you can plug the receiver in and operate the mouse instantly, you may have trouble getting the scroll wheel to work in games on Windows 7. The solution to this is simple, just install the latest IntelliPoint Mobile Mouse 3500 drivers. It took me a total of two minutes to install the drivers from the internet, and my middle mouse button worked perfectly inside games.
I am delighted by this cordless mouse. It's improved work at both my desktop and my laptop; I've got two cordless mouses, one for each. For the former, it not only reduced wire clutter on my desk, but helped me address some repetitive motion pain I've got from spending too much time on the computer. I can put the mouse wherever I want it, comfortably, as I change seating positions.
On the laptop, it allows for relaxed usage. I've always found a touchpad awkward to deal with. I'd websurf on my laptop but couldn't make myself do work on it. The wireless mouse has changed that. It's easily portable and I'm immediately working with as much dexterity as on a desktop. And I don't have to be limited by the cord, or fool around with one. If I'm l lounging around - lying on my back, say, with the laptop propped against my knees - I can drop my mouse hand to the side and the cord doesn't get draped across me. It doesn't get much more lazy and comfortable than that.
The mouse works with a tiny USB antenna about the size of a nickel; on my laptop, I can leave it permanently plugged in.
I've found it to be very reliable. It's been the probable cause of a few lockups and reboots on my desktop, but never at all on the laptop.
Turn off the mouse to save on the battery. It still needs a new battery once a month or so but it's definitely worth it. The price was right. I was steered to it by a Best Buy salesman who noted I didn't have to buy a cordless mouse costing three times as much. He recommended this one. I bought the second one from Amazon.
My initial foray into cordless peripherals years ago was unsuccessful. There were delays in keystrokes and clicks. You couldn't use them.
That's no longer a problem. I don't know why anyone would bother with a corded mouse when cordless ones are this easy, cheap and reliable.
Now that I have one also, I love it. I like the ability to turn it off with the little slider switch on the bottom to conserve battery life. I like being able to leave the (tiny) dongle plugged into my laptop, even when putting it in my laptop bag.
It's a great mouse.

Mouse works fine, but I ordered the blue one pictured here, and received a drab gray one. Didn't have the time or energy to pursue an exchange.Published 9 days ago by Art Machado
Every time I left click, it right clicks. When I right click, it right clicks. Not a setting problem. Left click is assigned to be left click. The design is pretty though.Published 13 days ago by Lauren Burdette
