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!

I found this mouse comfortable and use it a lot with a desktop computer. I don't think it works that well on some surfaces but is fine on a smooth desktop. It responds very well but the up to 10 months battery life as stated by Microsoft might be if you never use it! The battery lasts just over a month for me.

              Best nouse I've ever used, PERIOD! If you want a mouse that is easy to grasp and take you for a ride, get this baby. I spent and extra $ bucks to get this one and I'm glad I splurged. I use a magazine instead of a mouse pad and it works just fine.

                      Comments about Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 (Black):

                      Years ago I tried going the wireless route when it came to mouse operations and always found them to be lacking, they either did not track accurately or the distance I had to be to my computer meant I had to have the tower sitting right on top of my desk. Finally found one that works great and I don't have to have it next to my computer. Tracks great and I can even use it without a pad on an uneven surface, It feels solidly built and scrolls nicely and the little button on the side, although sometimes I find myself accidently pushing it, feels well made. This thing should last awhile. Not very expensive so if it get lost (using it with my laptop) I won't mind spending the money to replace it.

                            Use this mouse with a 2 in 1 laptop tablet. Faster than conventional mouse. Very accurate.
                            Nice to have back page button but missing next page button.

                                This mouse is small enough(4 in.) so that I can slide it along the front panel of my laptop. It is a necessary tool when running music composition software (DAW); i.e.,the screen is very packed and good mouse accuracy and response is necessary in order to invoke a specific tool. So far the RF USB dongle is unobtrusive. I chose an RF mouse over a Bluetooth mouse because I read that the response on Blue is not as good as on the RF (not verified). Moreover the running of Bluetooth may interfere with latency per my audio application software.

                                    I use this mouse for surfing the net, light gaming and web development. It is excellent. Works on almost any surface and is very accurate. The receiver is small enough to leave plugged in to the computer without issues.

                                    I would recommend it highly for a mobile mouse.

                                    I use a Logitech wireless with my Macbook, but needed a new mouse for my workstation and thought I would try this wireless one. It is not as consistent in response like a wired mouse, but it is working okay. I do not think it is the mouse's fault, but maybe using a wireless mouse at a workstation may not be the best option for precision. I am glad I purchased it, as it works better than the Logitech mouse on this particular computer, but it is not as precise as my past cheap-o wired mousses.
