Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000

Overall:

The mouse is much ignored but you’d be amazed how much of a difference a good one can make, and this offering from Microsoft is the Rolls-Royce of mice.

Price
Price: $74
> Pricing info
Not only is it comfortable to hold, with a soft-touch finish and sculpted lines that make it feel as if it were tailored to fit, but it also boasts a host of useful features.

The best of these is its rechargeable battery, which you can top up by simply dropping it onto the docking cradle. Vista users will appreciate the ability to switch between apps simply by rocking the scroll wheel.

The price is a sticking point, though. If you want the best, you have to pay for it. But in this case, we think $74 is too much.

Forget this M$ offering.
The Logitech MX Revolution is the true Rolls Royce of mice!
I bought one last week and LOVE it. Really comfortable to use (sorry it's for right handers only). The second wheel in the thumb position makes for simple Vista flipping. The "Back" and "Forward" buttons are also well placed and you've got a "Search" button.
What's not to like?
Only the price, @RRP $150 it makes this M$ mouse look cheap. But if you look around, it's available for much less (I paid $85).
Enjoy,
Staeven

Had a MX Revolution and the scroll wheel broke, it got stuck on free spin and wouldn’t revert back, I was very disappointed since it cost me a bomb... But hey that’s what I got for purchasing a ‘Rolls Royce’ that was made in China...
