Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 Review / Overview

This is the mouse I use, I like it. It is a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000. The mouse has a rechargeable: 1 AAA 1000mAh NiMh battery, a wireless: 2.4GHz Mini USB receiver, and has Microsoft High Definition Laser Technology.

The action buttons on the mouse spread out so it’s easy to hit with your fingers, doesn’t take too much effort to click. The mouse button wheel click does require more effort than the others, but was not a problem once you got used to it. The two customizable buttons on the side are easy to find, but placed high enough to prevent hitting them by accident. Mouse movement on the computer is very smooth, having a very precise movement from the laser pickup. Responsiveness was excellent, with very little perceivable lag. The laser pickup works flawlessly on many surfaces.

Setup was very easy, plug and play, with only pairing of the receiver and mouse to start working. Drivers were not required for basic operation, but to buttons to specific functions you need to install the Microsoft provided software. This software lets you map every button on the mouse to almost any function you can think of.

The receiver for this mouse can pickup signals far beyond the range you would ever be away from your computer. It was working through three walls and about 30 feet before it started to lag, I don’t know what you would be doing so far away from your computer but the range is awesome.

Overall obviously a great mouse, I would buy this again.
