    Very good Microsoft Mouse

    Posted

    A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away: Microsoft manufactured (or licensed) form-fitting right-handed mouses (mice?). Those days are gone. Enter the ambidextrous models. Sounds better for a Friday night date than a mouse doesn't it, but I digress. Over my career, I have used dozens of mouses. I tend to lean towards Microsoft for the most consistent, reliable, computer pointing experience. The 4000 doesn't disappoint...IF you understand its quirks...just like ALL wireless Microsoft mouses (MSM). The wireless receiver claims it can transmit across 15 feet. Nope. MSM have never been able to do this. They are *not* Bluetooth-capable--just regular congested channel 2.4 MHz. Mine *barely* makes it 3 ft before beginning to drop signal (noticed by studdering, skipping, acting flaky). I work around this with a USB-A to A extension cable taped to the bottom of my desk. This keeps the mouse and the receiver *less than 3 ft apart* at all times. My signal is accurate and fast... Right up there with my Logitech gaming mouse. MSM use up battery very slowly so it's important that you use Alkaline AA batteries (not rechargeable) in single-battery models. The difference is NiMH batteries run on 1.2V and Alkaline run on 1.5V. Most rechargables discharge at a constant rate even when not in use so the usable voltage will be less...again shortening your transmit range. I normally get 6-12 mo of time between changes. MSM no longer come with CD's in the packaging for drivers. You have to rely on your operating sys to select the *correct* Intellimouse drivers. My versions of Windows (2000, XPP x32, 7 Pro x64) never have and I normally have to hunt it down myself. If you want access to the mouse's higher functions, be prepared to locate the appropriate drivers with Microsoft . If those quirks don't bother you, than the 4000, like all Microsoft mouses (except the ultra basic and Arc series) will be a welcome addition to your mainstream computer pointing experience.

    Good but not exceptional

    I like how this mouse is built. It's very comfortable (I have small hands) and build quality is great. It also looks good IMHO - makes a very nice impression when you take it out of your bad :) It also has comfortable rubber grips on the sides and a convenient on/off switch so you can leave the USB receiver plugged in all the time (it's small enough to be plugged in all the time without causing any issues). there is also a place to pluch in the receiver if you need to. To me it looks like the Microsoft "blue track" technology is not really that much better than other laser/optical mice I had. I was hoping this one will actually work "anywhere" but unfortunately it does not work on shiny surfaces very well. I'm not even talking about glass, it won't work even on shiny wooden desktops and places where other mice will work fine. Note however that the mouse now goes for a very attractive price (below $30) in some places so it's really a good buy at this price - just don't expect anything exceptional. When it does work, however, it is very precice. I've had this mouse for a few months now but not enough to comment on batter life. However i don't expect this to be an issue. So bottom line: A very good mouse which I recommend, but lower your expectations about working anywhere. To me it looked very similar to other laser/optical mice on the market.

    Microsoft Mouse trap

    This mouse has a nice hand feel and operation and should work, but in my case and no fault of the new mouse, it didn't work out. The new Microsoft Surface Book computer I just bought is marvelous, but the old Dell wireless mouse I was using was acting up. So, I bought this Microsoft mouse. It didn't work any better. I fiddled with it for a month putting up with a jerky cursor, then I made a trip to the Microsoft store help desk to see if they had an answer. They surmised there must be some sort of interference with the computer operating system causing the glitches in the wireless mouse operation. They sold me a Blue Tooth mouse as a fix and it works perfectly. Too late to take my wireless mouse back to BB... anyone want to buy it? My advice, is if you buy a wireless mouse it out immediately after you get it to your computer to give you time to return it within the BB return window. Also, try out a Bluetooth mouse.

    Best Mouse But...

    This is the fave mouse for my household and anyone who buys on our recommendation. You can program the wheel and its click as well as the side button (I use it to magnify). You can use this mouse for hours without your hand cramping. The only problem now is this: MS warranties this mouse for 3 years-great, right? Not anymore. You see, the plastic that encircles the wheel tends to stretch and/or break, becoming useless; usually within the 1st year (mine is done at 8 months this time. Once the plastic is gone, it makes it very difficult to use the wheel w/the efficiency it used to have. I called MS, they are happy to send a replacement but NOW I must send the defective mouse back. I will then have more money in an initially reasonably priced mouse. While I love the mouse, I will prob just keep replacing it now and MS can make $$ off my replacement or USPS will make $$ off my mailing the bad one back. Very disappointing.

    Feels cheap but works fine

    Usually I prefer logitech wireless mouses (mice?) but this was part of desktop computer gift for my wife, and I didn't want to spend a lot of time hunting for drivers. As expected, this mouse immediately worked and it's comfortable and the right size for typical human hands. It's light so it feels cheap, but it works just fine. I ordered one but the exact same mouse came with the HP Envy I also bought, Best Buy was very convenient about returning one for full credit on my credit card (the whole order was shipped to my house, I just took the package slip with the extra mouse to my nearest Best Buy and the credit was taken care of at the customer service desk quickly without question). I personally slightly prefer the heft and size of the Logitech wireless but I've had driver issues with a couple of Windows updates so I'm hoping my wife won't have as many of these issues with this Microsoft product. We shall see.

    I've tried an Hp and a number of Logitech mice the last few months. None of them lived up to my expectation. I've always had good luck with Microsoft mice, but they're getting harder and harder to find. I saw this one and it's a bit small for my hands, but I figured I'd try it. I've been using it for weeks doing homework and playing games and it's pretty much lived up to my expectation. It misses clicks every now and then, but maybe that's me. It's not fancy if that's what you like or does it have lots of function buttons, but it's got the back button on the thumb side and the click wheel works good. I'll still be looking for a replacement, but this one will stay on the desk until then and behind the monitor for a backup after that.

    Solid Wireless Mouse

    I don't generally buy microsoft items but the price, compared to a logitech of the same size/class, was too good to pass up so I decided to give this one a try. I wasn't disappointed. This mouse is reliable and fits comfortably in my hand. It very rarely drops signal and is always super responsive. The USB fob/receiver has a nice low profile so, unlike wireless mice of old, you have no chance of breaking the USB stick. I only use this with my laptop about two or three times a week to reference while I sew, surf the internet or use as a mobile cookbook in the kitchen - probably not more than 4 to 6 hours a week. I was somewhat unimpressed with it's battery life - one month per AA battery - but that is really all that there is to complain about. Compared to the other mice in this category, this one seemed as though it was more ergonomic and, in my opinion, it is. I would buy this again.

    It's a very small mouse. I have small hands so it's very comfortable. I like the design on it. It's very simple and nice. The scroll wheel is very smooth. The mouse buttons are not too loud. I dont use the side button at all but its there if people use it. I really like the grip on the sides. It comes with a battery. I do notice sometimes there is lag(?) when i use the mouse. For instance, if i dont move the mouse for about 20 seconds and use it again, there is lag. I always forget to turn off the mouse- so its something to remember if you don't want your battery to die fast!

    I normally use Logitech wireless devices, a Best Buy professional that I always look up to aid in my decision making. process. I Told him I need my usuall mouse and he suggested to check this blue laser by Microsoft out. The big selling point is it woks on any surface with out using a pad. Carpet is the exception. The unit sold for $29.99 so I did decided to purchase with the pretense I will return it if I don't like it. The setup is nothing plug and play receiver. I was very pleased with the performance and accuracy of the mouse. It does do what the claims I mentioned. I was on best buys site and found that product for $12.99 thought for sure it was a miss print the store refunded the difference and the Microsoft 4000 wireless mouse is on the stores shelves for $12.99. GREAT VALUE I will not invest the 39.99 -59.99 any longer for the quote high end wireless mouse.

    Good general mouse

    I've used these blue light tracking mice for a long time and they are fantastic. I bought this one to replace one I had because the rubber on the scroll wheel was gone (from a pet bird tearing it apart, not general use). The blue laser for a mouse should really be the standard because of the responsive feedback on virtually any surface. The only surface I've had issues with are highly reflective surfaces like a glossy textbook cover. The only reason I give it a 4 star instead of 5 is because it only has one thumb button on the side. The old mouse I used had 2 thumb buttons which I used all the time.

    This is my third Microsoft - Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000, the first one I used so much I wore the rubber off the wheel, the second one fell victim to the cats. This mouse fits my hand better than any other mouse, it's default settings have a quick enough response time than any other device in it's class. I really enjoy the page back button where my thumb sits. This pad less mouse is comfortable on just about any surface, I am handicapped and this particular mouse is easily adjustable to me, and like will work fine on just about any surface except blankets, small price to pay for a great mouse. For the average user I certain will recommend this product.

    The mouse works well for the price given. I play a number of video games and the mouse clicks and moves smoothly like some of the other more game centered mouses out there. It works just as well for me despite the vast difference in prices, seeing as though game mouses are very high in price and tend to have too many buttons and such that tends to be needed for many games out there. The connection is smooth and constant and the laser makes for smooth constant movement. I enjoy the mouse and I find the mouse to be most excellent despite the price given. This is actually the second time I got the mouse with the first one lasting me a few years.

    I was looking for a relatively small, portable mouse. Not so small that it felt counterproductive to hold. This mouse feels just right, responds well and can track on any surface I've tested so far. If I had to pick a flaw (and it's not really, because I use it for an unintended purpose) it would be the scroll wheel is hypersensitive. Great for normal use, but I use it for Minecraft gaming and it scrolls through selections at the slightest graze. Again, great for normal everyday use, as this would be desired for quick scrolling. Sleek design, ultra low profile receiver fits into the mouse when traveling and it has a on/off switch. Also came with a battery.

    Great mouse with a couple drawbacks

    Posted
    SeattleLady

    Fits my small hand perfectly and works GREAT! Only issues: 1) USB is tiny and even with my small hands I sometimes have a little trouble plugging it into my USB hubs (I have to move it back & forth between home and work PCs); 2) Works perfectly on my home (tower) PC. But on my work laptop, even though I get it all plugged in and turned on before powering up the work laptop, it often takes a few plug/unplugs before the mouse starts moving around correctly But once it gets going, it works great there, too. Also, I keep forgetting to turn it off at night so the battery replacement is FREQUENT! But I'll have to take the blame for that one. Responsiveness is great!

    I bought this mouse to use with my work laptop. So convenient that I even use it when my laptop is on the docking station. Whenever I have a meeting I just bring it with me. Love the accuracy of the pointer. The only issue I have, and i'm not sure if it's windows or the microsoft mouse software, I've had a couple times when the right click and left click buttons switch and I have to reset them to the default. But it hasn't happened too often to complain about. Definitely recommend, especially at the price point.

    I use this for my surface pro 6 when I’m outside in my little man cave/storage closet when moments of peace have escaped me for too long. And it’s not the best setup so I have smacked this thing of its little table onto the concrete more times than I care to admit and it still works perfectly (even though the sound is similar to a hard egg cracking :( Nothing special, no bells no whistles but does the job wirelessly and can survive a beating.

    High quality mouse for a reasonable price

    Easy to install on a Windows 10 laptop. The USB receiver is unobtrusive and easy to leave in place. No perceptible lag time with browsing or productivity applications. I haven't tried gaming with it. The scroll wheel works well and as expected. It tracks accurately on multiple surfaces. So far, the battery life seems decent. The only negative is that the primary and secondary mouse buttons do not click as crisply as full Microsoft mice of the past (e.g., Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer).

    As a travel mouse, this is a solid choice. It has a compact size, the USB receiver stows inside the mouse when not in use, and it has a hard on/off switch so you know you aren't draining the battery inadvertently. On the negative side, it does not come with a protective case/pouch to protect it in your bag. The scroll wheel is a smooth-roller, it does not have a discrete-click mode. From an ergonomics standpoint, I don't find it nearly as comfortable as the Logitech Anywhere MX. In summary, it's a solid choice. I got it for $15 on sale, and for that price it was an outstanding value.

    Bought this to replace a M570 trackball that's been replaced twice already, they don't hold up at all, though the ergonomics of them is the best. I like that this one has a configurable side button that I can use for "back" - really got used to that on the M570. It's a little small and pretty light, but works pretty well, though because it's so light, it can be a little fussy when clicking the scroll wheel (since even a really small movement can make the click not work). But for the price, it's really pretty good. I just hope it holds up for longer than the much more expensive Logitech stuff.
