A great choice for a laptop or desk computor.

Comments about Microsoft Optical Wheel Mouse:

    This was the easiest mouse I ever installed. It installed itself. Thank goodness since I am a goof up when it comes to installing anything. My hubby usually has to do it for me but this one was a cinch.

   I am disabled and am on the computor several times a day and this is the best mouse I have ever had. It does not bother my hand or make my fingers go to sleep like some do.

A perfect starter mouse from Microsoft

Comments about Microsoft Optical Wheel Mouse:

***Bottom-Line***: Lightweight, comfortable, affordably, and easy to use, this pointing device is reliable workhorse designed to work with both Windows and Macintosh OS.x platforms.

The **Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical** is a standard two button white mouse with a grey scroll wheel, used for scrolling through long web pages or multi-page documents half a page at a time.  This wheel is located in the middle of the buttons positioned at the front of the mouse.  The bottom of the mouse is mad of grey semi-clear plastic with a red clear plastic adorning the rear of the mouse.  When the computer is on the rear of the mouse glows with red light, and in a darkened room looks similar to a laser.  This serves no useful purpose other then to look cool. 

**My Viewpoint **

The **Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical** is designed to work with Windows and Macintosh platforms and ships with a USB connection, but also a green PS/2 converter to allow you to plug the mouse into a standard IBM PS/2 port.  Utilizing USB (Versions 1.0 /1.1 /2.0), the **Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical** is a plug-n-play device and as such can be removed and plugged back in without having to reboot or otherwise shout down the computer.  A PS/2 connection however, is not always plug-n-play and it is best to leave the connection attached during normal computer operations.    

Unlike earlier versions of the Microsoft Mouse that tended to be designed for right handed folk (I am left handed), the **Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical** is decidedly straight so that I can be used with either hand.  And the above mentioned ability to switch the functionality of the buttons further enhances the mousse ambidextrous abilities.  Indeed the mouse feels comfortable in the hand; it is not too big, or too small.              

For a general purpose optical mouse, the **Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical** is hard to beat.  Lightweight, comfortable, affordably, and easy to use, this pointing device is reliable workhorse designed to work with both Windows and Macintosh OS.xx platforms.
