Needs batteries. Means more money for Gatesy

October 2004 - I'm updating this review because I now have some more information about battery life, which, if you use a cordless mouse a lot, could be critical in your decision. ***************************************** ************ It’s nice to be writing about a Microsoft product that’s a)...

Hello. Is anybody reading this? I only ask because I know that in the high-tech world of PC's mice aren't exactly the most exciting things. Think about upgrading and improving your PC and you'll probably consider memory, hard drive capacity, processor speed, graphics card ... in fact pretty much...

Surpreme control, Good price, Appealing

: None that I can think of

Its true folks, my new mouse has got NO BALLS. Not been content with breeding “one-balled” mice, the bigwigs at Microsoft have given their new fleet, the FULL CHOP! They call their new babies “optical” mice, no, it’s not a medical term, as you will discover later...

More expensive than a traditional 'balled' mouse.

Hi, meet my new mouse, yes he still has a tail, but ermm well, he’s ball-less! He’s still quite handsome and sleek looking though, and he has this lovely red glow about him… Nope, I’ve not gone mad (well no madder than I already was anyway) I have however acquired a new mouse for my computer. I...

“A mouse. Quite a good mouse.”

published 16/02/2004

Wireless, tilt wheel, good feel

maybe too large for some.

I have had Mircrosoft mice in the past, and have been very pleased with them, in fact they are still in use with various family memners. The only reason to upgrade has been the change from serial to PS/2 and then wanting and optical. I bough a cheap unbranded one a while back and was quite...

Although some are sceptical about the reliability of Microsoft's operating systems, their hardware doesn't have this stigmatism attached to it. I've used quite a few Microsoft mice and they have all delivered excellent performance, this one generally being no exception. I believe I paid about £25...

installation with Thinkpad is tricky

The mouse is one of the only computer components that remains largely unchanged since the start of the "information age". It is a plastic case containing a ball which registers movement with two noisy buttons on top. However, with this mouse comes the two greatest pointer innovations for years...

Great for any position. Responsive.

Very power hungry.

Some 5 months after becoming the owner of a new mouse, I feel I have enough experience with the rodent to write an informative review about its performance. That is if I can get to the end of this review without changing its batteries! Yes, the little trendy mouse packed with gadgets and gizmos...

Very accurate - no maintenance - cheap

none

The Microsoft WheelMouse Optical is rodent with a difference. Working with an optical sensor, it doesn’t have a ball to gather fluff and dust, so it is very accurate. The newer version is said to be 33% faster than the old ones, and there is no doubt that it is the best and most accurate...

A bit on the pricey side

The simple mouse. It has been around for ages, and yet remains the most popular way of interacting with desktop computers. As it is used so often, I wonder why people put up with using the cheap, tacky and uncomfortable mouse that maybe came with their PC. When I was getting fed up with using the...

Freedom of movement, fast, can be personalised.

Easy to lose!

As computer accessories go, I feel the mouse is often over-looked. It’s only when it finally gives up the ghost that you realise it’s true worth!! Unfortunately, that happened to me recently, so off I trundled to PC World to try and find a replacement, without having to spend too much...

“Its a floater”

published 01/06/2002

Fluid movement. No cleaning.

None yet apart from the price.

How often are you losing you rag with your mouse? Its long tail is getting wrapped around your monitor/computer/keyboard? Or how about running the mouse over the same piece of mousepad over and over again to get it to scroll? Well, the answers to your hair pulling are here! The Microsoft...

Uses up batteries fast.

I bought a wireless and optical mouse on the advice of a friend who had bought one and said they were very good and seeing as mine was getting worse day by day I thought it time to get a new one. The Microsoft one caught my eye with a lovely silver/blue casing that I think looks very stylish. The...
