    When I first bought one of these, I found that I really liked this mouse. It has a small footprint which is great if you don't have a lot of room to move the mouse. Also, the driver software, that you can download, is pretty comprehensive for a mouse. You have an incredible number of options for all the buttons in addition to pointer options, scroll options, etc. It also has a tab that provides battery strength and wireless signal strength. I was so pleased with this mouse that I even bought a second one for another computer.

    The last paragraph is exactly what I said about the Microsoft 3000 mouse in my review of that mouse, and it applies as well to the 4000 series.

    This mouse, however, improves over its predecessor. The 4000 series is a larger mouse, and I feel the slight increase in size makes it more comfortable to use. The improvements are:

    1. Use of a smaller nano - transceiver. The 3000 series used a larger USB stick that jutted out the side of the laptop USB port making it easy to break off.
    2. No interference with another 4000 series mouse in use nearby. I would get "low-signal" warnings with the older mice when another one was in use nearby.
    3. A switch to turn off the mouse. The 3000 series required you to place the transceiver in a slot on the underside of the mouse to turn it off. The 4000 also has a slot to insert the transceiver if you want, but I just leave plugged into the laptop.
    4. According to Microsoft, it has a range of 30 feet.
    5. Ability to use it on a multitude of surfaces – even a carpet according to Microsoft.
    6. It has a button on the side that can be programmed.

    No problems – just works!

    Blue light technology is excellent, tracks very well on most surfaces... arm, leg, jacket on the floor. The forward button does not seem to work with my W7 enviroment. Sweet little transciver fits into base for storage, and just one AA battery for long life.

          This thing works on every surface I've tried it on, including clear glass! For me, it has a nice touch and isn't too big or too small.

                      I use the product with my laptop. The small USB receiver is great because you don't have to worry about it breaking off. Life of batteries seems to be long as well, but I've only used for a few weeks now. Also, the off switch is great for saving energy.

                          After 3 mice for my netbook, this is absolutely the best, and I am VERY particular. Best points: the "feel", the precision of the "click" mechanism, the fast "clickless" wheel, the small USB dongle (I can leave permanently in place), the convenient "on-off" switch on the mouse's underside, overall quality.
