    Very good for the price point

    Very sleek design with the 3 button functionality (left, right, and wheel). I like that it isn't too bulky for travel but that comes with the trade-off that it doesn't fit your hand as well as mice with bulkier designs. At least not for large hands. Overall it works very well on most surfaces, I think the only time I had an issue was on reflective/glass surfaces so far but it works on my rough wood table, couch cushion, plastic fold-out table, smooth wood table, etc. One frustration is the connectivity. It seems to lose connection with my computer whereas a bluetooth mouse with a usb dongle never did. It may be a computer related issue but when i change the power settings to prevent the disconnect, it still disconnects after ~5 minutes of sitting idle. I can't confidently say it is the mouse disconnecting or the computer disconnecting, so this complaint may need to be investigated by seeing what other users are saying. This is just my experience with a Dell Inspiron running Windows 10.

    Good mobile bluetooth mouse

    This is a good bluetooth mouse for someone looking for an easy to haul mobile solution. I buy these for users in our office who have Surface Pros as a lot of our employees prefer to use a mouse instead of the track pad. I would not recommend this product for someone looking for a bluetooth solution while also sitting at a desk. The mouse is a little too flat and small in my opinion. I will also say the the clicking of the mouse is a bit different than what a traditional mouse feels like in the sense that it doesn't exactly mimic the same feeling you expect from a "click". Overall, this is a good mobile solution that requires nothing more than bluetooth capability for connectivity -- a huge benefit for those who are slim on USB ports.

    I went down to Best Buy to pick up a mouse for my new Microsoft Surface Book. Now I have fully intended to pick up the Microsoft Arc Surface Edition mouse but after feeling it I thought I personally don't like the way it is collapsible. Then I happened upon the Microsoft Designer Mouse. That's a nice looking mouse. Tasteful, sleek and very understated, looked perfect. I picked it up and off I went... Upon arriving home, simple set up. Turned on Bluetooth, and were off and running. In fairness, I don't like the size and texture of the scroll wheel but I am most likely just being picky. Overall a really nice design. Great looks and Microsoft quality.

    Wonderful Mouse

    I needed a new mouse to replace my old usb mouse. I had looked around at other BT options and didnt find anything that really seemed great to me. I have always disliked the feel of my old mouse because it was too rounded and stuck up to high. This mouse is VERY sleek and fits nicely under a flat hand. Feels like you can rest your hand down on the mouse instead of keeping your hand up and grabbing the mouse. The movement of the mouse is excellent. I havent found a service that id has had trouble working on. I used to have to struggle to find a surface that my old mouse would work on. Not anymore. Roller moves quickly but isnt too loose. Easy pairing. Great mouse.

    Since the Surface computers have a limited number of USB ports (2) I elected to go with the MS Bluetooth connected mouse. I wasn't disappointed. Connection was easy with Windows 10 Pro and the mouse has performed as expected. If MS could make one improvement it would be in the mouse wheel. It is a little stiff when scrolling and sometimes due to the amount of pressure you have to put on the wheel you end up inadvertently going into the fast mouse move mode. Takes a little getting used to but still glad to have both of the USB ports available.

    Seems Nice But Missed Out On Customers

    Bought this for a MacBook pro I am running Windows 7 in boot camp and was looking for a nice windows based Bluetooth mouse. Picked this one up and once I opened I loved the design and the magnetic battery cover. My disappointment came when I realized it only works on Windows 8 or higher. Not sure why Microsoft decided to make a Bluetooth mouse that doesn't work with all Bluetooth enabled devices, but they lost a lot of potential customer purchases by doing so. Guess Logitech will be getting my money.

      Hello Replicide the Microsoft - Designer Wireless BlueTrack Mouse is not compatible with versions of Windows Microsoft no longer supports. Although Microsoft has extended support on Windows 7 until January 14, 2020, mainstream support ended on January 13, 2015. WE hope this was helpful to you. Microsoft

    Initial Problems Solved

    When I first got the mouse, it dropped connection pretty frequently. A driver update seems to have solved that problem. Additionally, the main (left) mouse button would get stuck in the mouse-down position. I used a pry tool to remove the top shell and bend the plastic back a bit and it hasn't gotten stuck since, but I'm not convinced that it is a permanent fix. I'll probably have to do it again some day. Other than that, it tracks well on all surfaces on which I have used it. I haven't had it long enough to judge the battery life.

    Cheap Bluetooth.

    Has a good size for a travel mouse and it was a cheap option with Bluetooth. Otherwise i wish i bought something else. $20 as an open box item. Takes two AAA batteries. Pros: The mouse connects easily thanks to having bluetooth and because it's small it is easy to carry in my pocket. Cons: It doesn't have an on/off switch to disable inputs, so if your computer is on it may send unintentional clicks or movement. The buttons don't feel solid enough for a consistent click. Tracking is OK. Mouse doesn't slide great on various surfaces .

    Very nice, minimalist mouse. It doesn't have a whole bunch of extra distracting gimmicky stuff, just two buttons and the wheel. The bluetooth connection to my laptop's Intel 8260 bluetooth adapter is solid (connects right away when the computer wakes up, doesn't drop the connection). My only complaint is that the wheel is somewhat stiff, and not overly grippy on the finger, so I sometimes have to use my fingernail or press harder than on other mice to scroll.

    Love it when it works, but that's not too often

    I bought this bluetooth mouse at the recommendation of my computer repair guy. He loves his. BUT as I have now read in several other reviews, every time my laptop comes out of sleep mode, the mouse no longer works. I will try the suggestions of removing the drivers, downloading current drivers and trying once more. If that doesn't do a permanent fix, I will take advantage of the 2 year warranty from Microsoft.

    I travel for work and wanted a mouse that did not require any type of dongle to connect it to the computer. This mouse works great over Bluetooth and is small enough to fit in my bag. It is much thinner than the Logitech mice I have had in the past; it took a little getting used to but now that I am i would not go back. Nice that it frees up a USB port on my laptop.

    Great idea but cannot keep it connected

    I bought one for my wife and one for me. Used it with several devices but the final straw was when it would not stay connected to a Microsoft Surface 3 Pro. I can understand having some compatibility issues (maybe), but not connecting or staying connected to a device sold by Microsoft was not acceptable. I'd go with a Logitech and wait and see on the blue tooth technology.

    I love the low profile of this mouse. It fits in my laptop bag's outside pocket without creating the usual big bulge. Battery life is good, as is the connection. Some reviewers have stated that the left button sticks sometimes. It does. But I found that if you click the left button on its right side by the wheel, it doesn't stick. Once you get used to that, it's fine.

    Yes this mouse worked fine, but I could not keep the Bluetooth connected. Would be right in the middle of working and it would disconnect. Then had to go back through the Bluetooth settings, where it would just search forever, never finding it. I would have to reboot to get it to work, to then start at the top again..... I wound up returning it to the store.

    Low Profile and excellent functionality

    This fit my needs perfectly. I wanted an easily portable mouse that would not tie up a USB port on my new laptop. The laptop has a touch pad, but I much prefer a mouse. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is the mouse clicks are relatively noisy. That might be a factor if you are using it in a quiet environment with others present. For me, it is a minor issue.

    Connecting is as easy and opening Bluetooth settings on your device, pressing the button on the bottom of the mouse and within a couple minutes you're mousing away. The mouse is comfortable and small enough to throw in whatever bag you have. It has all the standard mouse functions and yes, it does work just as good on a Mac PC as it does on a Windows PC.

    The mouse looks very good and is very flat to carry around; Bluetooth means no extra adapter to make it work with your laptop. The mouse doesn’t give you enough support because is almost flat, it doesn’t provide that curve all other devices have to rest your palm on it. Over all this set, looks amazing, but doesn’t provide any ergonomic feature.

    an absolute perfect mouse for travel and pairing with tablets especially. I use it with my Dell Venue 8 pro and it works with no problems. I haven't had any issues with the device disconnecting or glitching during use. It is small and easy to store for travel, but large enough to be comfortable during use. A great product overall.

    I got this on sale and had low expectations as normally I am a Logitech fan. Have to say I am super impressed. Bluetooth connectivity is flawless, it's perfect for ultrabook/portable use. The blue-light system works on glass and I am so impressed with the mouse I want to buy another one even though I have no need for it.

    Uncomfortable mouse for small hands

    This is a sleek looking mouse and performs well. However, I returned it in favor of a Logitech bluetooth mouse. The Microsoft mouse was very uncomfortable to use. I have very small hands and it made my wrist flex at an uncomfortable angle. This would probably be a great mouse for someone with larger hands.
