3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it should be ..., 25 May 2011
This review is from: Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 V2.0 Mac/win Usb Port En/nl/fr/de/el Hdwr Cd (Electronics)
As CjW points out, this is hard to pick up - which is something you do all the time if you have a small area to use it in (because you can't move the pointer the width of the screen without repositioning the mouse). It seems to be to be about the same weight as my Explorer 5000 (my 5000 used AAs, not AAAs), but the sides aren't grippy and are angled so you can't lift it. There's two possible solutions (1) tilt it rather than lift it when repositioning (but you'd have to learn to do that), or (2) put some zinc tape (like band-aid / elastoplast without the pad in the middle) on it. I've gone for (2) which means that I can now grip it fine - we'll see how it goes over a few days.

Anyway, this seems to be a redesign of the Explorer 5000, which was the most comfortable Microsoft ergonomic mouse for me, and it's pretty good from that point of view - although I do currently keep pressing the side buttons by mistake and zooming the desktop.
