Microsoft's Laser Mouse 6000 features an innovative, ergonomic design. Accuracy and Performance Features
Featuring high-definition laser technology, the Microsoft B5W-00001 offers laser precision as you scroll through your files. Smoother tracking means less strain on your hands and wrists, and higher responsiveness means that you'll quickly notice an increase in your productivity. The mouse offers four-way scrolling, adding even greater efficiency and comfort to your work. The entire scroll wheel tilts from side to side, acts as a button, and reacts to how quickly you roll the wheel to enable smooth, accurate maneuverability. For example, if you're working with a super-wide spreadsheet, you can tilt the wheel from side to side to scroll right and left, without having to click the sheet's tiny scroll arrows.
If you work with a lot of digital imagery, you'll love the mouse's magnification feature. With this feature, you'll think that you have a magnifying glass pressed against the screen. With a simple press-and-hold motion, the magnifier enlarges the area of your screen that fits inside the lens. You can easily adjust both the size of the lens and the level of its magnification. The Magnifier works in most programs. (The Magnifier is not compatible with Direct3D API in full-screen mode, media players, OpenGL, and Layered Windows. If you are using Mac OS X, the Magnifier enlarges text and images on the entire screen.) When it's time to touch up photos, or fine-tune detailed tasks, the magnifier will quickly become your best friend.
The mouse also features advanced Microsoft technologies that help prolong the life of your batteries, which means that you can spend more time working and less time running back and forth to the store. The B5W-00001 automatically enters standby mode when it's inactive for a certain length of time, which minimizes unnecessary battery drain. In addition, the light in the mouse's optical sensor illuminates only as brightly as is necessary to provide optimal tracking power. And finally, the mouse features a handy snap-in receiver that plugs in when you're ready to work, then snaps into your mouse when you travel, further preserving battery life.
Of course, as its name implies, the Microsoft B5W-00001 is wireless, which means you'll never have to hassle with cords again. An ambidextrous, ergonomic design that features a rubber-sided grip and a sophisticated form gives this mouse a cutting-edge look and feel that will complement today's latest technology. So if you work with a computer that runs Windows XP and has an available USB port, the Microsoft B5W-00001 could be the mouse you've always wanted.

However, my first copy of this mouse's scroll wheel disintegrated at just about 1 year age and the mouse was trash. I have a new one and it is getting 8 hours of hard use per day. We'll see what happens. (By the way, I've used the various Microsoft and Logitech scroll wheel mice since they first came out and no other model has ever come apart.)
About September of 08, the second one of these started to lose its scroll wheel. But, before it could deteriorate to the point of full failure, the USB dongle went on the fritz. No saving it. I give up. I switched back to Logitech, even though this Microsoft one is a superior device, when it works.
No mention of anyone using/trying this mouse as a drawing instrument, which is why I bought it, as it has a claimed .001 resolution.
The single battery slides in at an angle, so the mouse is balanced, though it would appear not to be due to the space for the USB transmitter.
The buttons are not all that difficult to push. You can hold the mouse upside-down while scrolling and not accidentally click a button; however a surface rougher than formica may be a better idea as the cursor may slide off target when clicking on a hyperlink. Everything takes a little practice.
See if this doesn't work out as a half-way decent RSS reader tool You can hold this mouse at all times and use your clothes to move it around on.
It doesn't rate such low star reviews.
Both mouse and keyboard are very comfortable, although keyboard letters require young eyes and good lighting.
Mouse stopped responding properly at day three, we had to click three to five times to initiate computer responce.
Keyboard followed two days later.
I connected my old wired Dell keyboard and mouse but I had to manually uninstall both devices from within Control pannel because my computer kept looking for those more advanced devices.
Company promissed a replacement but never shipped one.
Shipping damaged goods back with provided RMA (works for 14 days only)costs almost as much as I payed for it.
Putting em in a trash was an easier option.
But this is not one of them. The tracking and scrolling are poor, the scroll wheel is hard to set, the buttons truly ARE too stiff.
Get a lower model.
UPDATE: My review was premature. Make sure you get the updated Intellipoint driver from Microsoft, AND, when you install the driver, make sure you select the Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000, and NOT the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000. There is a difference. However, the buttons are still stiff, and the "bumper" around the front end of the mouse further inhibits your clicking. I would bump it up to 2 stars if I could, but not more.
This is after I received a much used book that had stated it was in excellent condition. I let that go. I am hesitate to buy from Amazon again. The mouse was supposed to be a brand new product!!
