5 out of 5 eggsLow force buttons

Pros: I've got tendonitis that makes it difficult for me to press very hard on mouse buttons. I went on a buying spree and got a dozen mice to try out and this was the best, with the lightest touch. Yes it's small but fits my hand perfectly, I don't like the big desktop style mice. Yes the cord is short but it's very flexible and plenty long enough to come around from the left side of a laptop, so it's really the perfect length for laptop use.

Cons: Scroll wheel and buttons are both louder than I'd like.

USB plug is too big for my taste.

If you have a heavy touch or large hands this is probably not the mouse for you.

Other Thoughts: I've bought four of these and am ordering three more. Everyone in my family uses them.

3 out of 5 eggsCompact. Cord is short.

Pros: Compact. Great for a laptop. Price.

Cons: Cord is VERY short.

Other Thoughts: Bought for a desktop, but cord is too short for that without an extension. I will keep it for another use though. Would have gone with 4-5 eggs if not for the cord.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for Small Hands, Very Short Cord

Pros: The form factor of the Microsoft Compact Mouse is excellent for users with smaller hands.

Cons: The cord is extremely short: 30" (76.2cm).

Other Thoughts: This purchase was a replacement for a Microsoft Compact Mouse model 500 purchased a few years ago. The form factor is identical to the earlier model, but the cord is less than half the length (30"). I would buy again, but now I know to order a USB extension at the same time. Another note, the mouse I received has the MS text logo on the top, but is lacking the holographic sticker and other Microsoft branding on the bottom. May be a knock-off product? Still, it works.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for notebooks

Pros: Works well, constructed fairly well. Small size is good for storing in notebook (laptop) bag, but takes some getting use to when operating mouse.

Cons: Small gauge cord could be damaged easily.

Other Thoughts: Yes, it is small, but it is suppose to be (see meaning of "Compact")

3 out of 5 eggsMouse for kids

Pros: It works properly.

Cons: The mouse is way too small to be comfortable. I can not imagine adult using this mouse. However, 5 year old kids like it.

Other Thoughts: I got v. 2.0 of this mouse. It has short (2 ft) cord.

5 out of 5 eggsVersatile

Pros: I have bought two of these. One for my laptop, and one for my desktop.

Everyone complains about the cable length. I do not.

I just keep the twist tie that came with the mouse to begin with. I keep the cable folded up and then I plug it into my laptop.

For the desktop, I use that cable length!! It is nice.

Finally, I have not had any problems with either mouse. I use them practically everyday. They are small and responsive.

Cons: Maybe the cord and mouse wheel colors could be changed, but I am not that picky.
