    Microsoft Explorer Mini: Smooth Scrolling

    Posted
    hakbox

    I recently picked up a new wireless mouse: the Microsoft Explorer Mini with BlueTrack Technology. So far, I am very satisfied with the quality and usability of the mouse (both on Mac and PC). BlueTrack is definitely not a gimmick, and it turns virtually any surface into a mouse pad (not including clear glass, as MS states). I never thought the couch would make a decent mouse pad! * The mouse glides effortlessly. * It feels very comfortable * The USB dongle is very small (not a “nano” like the Logitech mice, but still small) * 5 programmable buttons (on both Mac and PC!) via Intellipoint 6.3 (at time of this writing) * I even like how they removed the ‘clicks’ from the mouse wheel! It spins with some minor resistance. Unlike Logitech scrool wheels, which offer little to no resistance. * Takes 1 AA battery I know most gamers would scream at the though of using a wireless mouse for gaming. But I’m not a hard-core gamer (although I am eyeing the upcoming Microsoft Sidewinder x8 Gaming Mouse). I have to say that so far, in the limited games I have played (WoW and Spore), the mouse works flawlessly. No latency, no stuttering, no issues what-so-ever. I would definitely recommend this mouse to anyone in the market for a new portable mouse. If you are looking for a desktop version, try the Explorer with BlueTrack Technology. Slightly larger, and comes with a charging station.

    Works like butter on hot bread. Bought to replace Logitech 270 Bluetooth mouse that worked OK - but Bluetooth seems to be dead. I previously bought the Logitech V470 that was terrible!! - Words fail... This is the best mouse that I have ever used - but it is inappropriate for a laptop as it has a thin, sharp, fragile USB transmitter that will either break itself or break your laptop USB port. However, I liked the feel and working so well that I kept this mouse and moved it to my desktop that does not need to ever move.

    I just bought this and its the best mouse i've had. I previously had the microsoft optical mouse 3000 that was a great mouse i had it for a few years and never had any problems, so I will always stay with microsoft. This mouse is perfect, very confortable and worth the money

    Picked it up today.  Set up was easy.  I have big abused hands from years of sheet metal work and had no problems with the usb adapter.  It works on the arm rest of my recliner.  Great product.

    This is the best wireless mouse I have used. It works on any surface as advertised. Very easy to install and very ergonomic to hold. A little pricey, but still an excellent product.
