5.0 out of 5 stars Light Weight and Very Agile, 2 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 (Accessory)
I am not interested in giving a full review, but I will say that the Mobile Mouse 6000 is very light weight. Normally wireless mice tend to be a little heavier than wired mice because of the radio receiver and battery, but this (with battery) weighs just 91 grams on my kitchen scales (digital).

Driver install was painless, just plug the USB receiver in and you are away after a quick automatic driver install. When I tried it with windows 7 (Release Candidate 7100) that didn't even happen, it just worked!

This is a portable wireless mouse so it doesn't go to sleep. There is an off switch on the bottom of the mouse. For laptop users on the go this is good, but for desktop users this could be irritating.

And despite all the promotional pictures having a blue ring around the mouse, the real mouse doesn't have this. For me this is a plus, but anybody expecting a neon blue effect while using it, is going to be disappointed.

Its not a blue ring, its the blue track technology. If it doesn't light up blue, the mouse won't work. Just like an optical/laser mouse with its red light.

Previous Microsoft mice with the illustrated blue ring DID have the outer neon LEDs (separate from the optical blue light). I think that's what he meant. Anyway since this is a mobile mouse having more LEDs would just pointlessly reduce the battery life, which is why it was not implemented.
