I bought this mouse because I wanted to try out this new optical mouse technology since my previous Microsoft classic ball mouse use to clog sometimes and then the ball required cleaning.

ConsNone to mention it's that good

Let me begin this review in the way I mean to go on! Best. Mouse. Ever! I seriously cannot express that part enough. I've gone through many, many mice in my lifetime and this wireless mouse from Microsoft has seen me through an awful lot. Please allow me to go further. First Impressions &...

ConsNone that I know of.

I'm currently using this mouse on my Ubuntu PC, and have also tried it on Solaris and Windows. It has an excellent response time, never lags or freezes, and wastes very little battery. I'm currently powering the mouse with two AA UNiROSS 2700mAh NiMH batteries, which I charged less than a year...

“WIRE-LESS EFFORT”

published 03/11/2003

ProNo wires, excellent features, very comfortable

Consrequires batteries

What do you do when you become fed up of cleaning the inside of your ball mouse? Well the answer is simple, you buy an optical mouse. I decided on buying Microsoft's Wireless Intellimouse Explorer due to an offer on this item, which meant I was able to purchase it for around £38 compared to its...

ProNice design, accurate

ConsBattery consumption and expensive

This is a good mouse to use. I had it for 1 year and one month. Then the side buttons that are used by default as forward and back, started giving in. My curious mind led me to open the mouse, and as a result I managed to destroy it :-(. Nevertheless I found some design fault that could be...

Consexpensive, high battery consumption

Microsoft it has to be said produce some rather expensive items. This is one such item, for which I paid £60, but I don't regret it one bit, ever. The mouse is plug and play compatible with the software it comes with so all you have to do is install the software and away you go. The sleek design...

ProComfortable, well built and looks stylish!

ConsBig and scroll wheel bit too sensitive for games.

Microsoft certainly produces solid and well-made hardware; the Wireless Intellimouse Explorer is weighty (with the two AA batteries in) and not shiny, with a black leather look finish on the top and black sides. Unlike some previous mice this finish looks as though it is designed to last and will...
