Best Wireless Mouse - Microsoft Wireless Mouse 3500
Why this mouse?
This is a great little mouse! I had been looking for a nano wireless mouse (the nano has the smaller stick for the computer - I *always* break the bigger ones) for a great price. I found the pot of gold in this little mouse!
- Great fit and feel!
- Ease of use
- Nano technology
- Under $20
Fit & Feel
This is a smaller mouse, which I like. It fits well in the hand and packs easily. It is ergonomically styled, with rubber-like sides for a great grip. The wheel is easy to use and is rubber-like, too.
Ease of Use
It's so simple to get started with the mouse. Take it out of the package, put in the enclosed battery, and plug the nano stick into your computer. The drivers download automatically and in seconds. It is ready to go!
It has great range on it, so if you want to move a ways away from your computer, you can still use your mouse. I use this all the time in the kitchen when I'm using recipes online. I like to keep the computer far away from ingredients, and I'm able to control it from quite a distance.
It works on all kinds of surfaces. I use it on the desk, on the counters, on the sofa, on my leg, on the wall, and on a mouse pad.
The stick is so small that you are not going to break it if you leave it in the computer when you are moving it around. You can actually leave it in there when you put it in a notebook sleeve it's so small. Of course, if you don't want to risk it, you can store the stick right inside the mouse.
This is a very inexpensive mouse. I was a little skeptical because of the low pricetag, but since it is made by Microsoft and carries a three-year warranty, I changed my mind and happily gave it a try at such a low cost.
I chose the "folk" mouse, but they also have a "geode" and "wave" patterns. They come in many colors, and where typically I could care less what color my mouse is, since I had a choice anyway I went all out cute!
