I found this mouse to be quite bulky and uncomfortable. It is really too large to slip into a laptop bag. It is a little awkward to use as it somehow just doesn't fit right in my hand. My hands aren't exactly large, but I never before had a problem with a computer mouse being too large for comfortable use. I also find that somehow, I am not exactly sure how, but I occasionally right-click when I left-click. I think it may be because of how the left and right buttons are all the same piece of plastic and my fingers just don't reach far enough down the front of the mouse. I can't MAKE it do it, but it happens at a rate of about once per 100 clicks.

What frustrates me most about this mouse is that there is no way to turn it off other than putting the receiver into the bottom of the mouse, so you have to unplug it every time you are finished using it. And it doesn't just snap into the bottom of the mouse, you have to actually pay attention to how you are putting it in, and double check that its in all the way, or the mouse won't turn off. It only goes in one way, and it isn't exactly obvious how it goes in. Not a big deal, but it is a real nuisance.

Bottom Line: I bought it when I bought my laptop, expecting to use it a lot. I had always used a desktop computer, and was never super comfortable with touchpads the few times I had used a laptop. However, this mouse now spending most of its time serving as a paper weight. I only use it rarely when I need the added functionality and accuracy of a mouse. Over all, a waste of money. I am sure there are better mice on the market.

Easy to use, reliable

Comments about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000:

This was my second new mouse in two weeks. I was very frustrated trying to find one to work well with my new computer. The first one was jumpy and non-responsive. This one did not disappoint in reliability and ease of use. Very smooth in operation, and very responsive. The fit to my hand is comfortable, I don't use a mouse pad now and that seems to help a lot. The mouse was easy to set up and the setting made it compatible with my useage. I have been using it now for several months and have had no problems at all.

A good desktop mouse for the money.

Comments about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000:

The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 is an attractive, contoured mouse that combines the precision of laser optics with a shape that fits both right- and left-hands. However, the ambidextrous design is a mixed blessing. It's not overly comfortable for either hand, and button placement is awkward. I find myself looking for the buttons to back or forward a webpage. However, for the $30 I paid its a high quality mouse and good for tasks on my desktop.

      Comments about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000:

      Over the past several years I have purchased several of these mice and even with large hands I find them very easy to use. I have two computers on my desk and almost have both computers on while working. This mouse always goes only left as this is an ambidextrous mouse (lets you use either hand). I will replace my larger Wireless IntelliMouse when it stops working with this same Laser Mouse 5000. I broke my last 5000 Mouse when I dropped it, but I wouldn't consider another model or brand of mouse for a replacement. I keep a model 5000 mouse in my laptop case as well.
