This review is from: Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 5000 Grey (Accessory)
Brilliant all round mouse, from a working perspective (PS, Illustrator, 3DSMAX) it is easy to use and sturdy.
the battery life is brilliant with just 2 AA batteries lasting about 3 months. the smooth no-click scrolling makes weapon changing in games (UT2004, Quake4, HL2) very very fast. so although ittakes time to become accustomised all in all it is a very useful and versatile mouse.
the only downsides are that it is quite large, feels big, the tilt wheel is not very smooth and side scolling is not as plesent as it could be, also the battery slot is too large meaning that removing batteries can be both difficult and can strip the casing off batteries, not good if you use rechargable as they end up pretty battered. (might just be mine though)
