One Week With My Microsoft 5000 Mouse

When my Mighty Mouse stopped scrolling down, I was sad. When I broke it trying to clean it, I was depressed. But now I have a Microsoft Wireless 5000 Laser mouse and I’m pretty happy once again.

I’ve never been a Microsoft Fan. I refuse to install Word or Excel on my iMac and, come to think of it, the I don’t have anything Microsoft installed. That was until I installed the Microsoft Mouse driver.

Microsoft 5000 Wireless Laser MouseThe Microsoft 5000 mouse is wireless, has five configurable buttons and a very nice scroll wheel that goes vertical and horizontal. For only $2, this thing rocks! That’s right, $2 on eBay.

So far, I’ve not had any of the issues I had with my two Kensington mice. That teaches me never to buy from them again.

If you’re looking for a mouse, don’t count out Microsoft mice just because of the company behind them. Yes it’s Microsoft, but this is something they’ve done right. 🙂

    I’ve been using a Logitech MX-1000 Cordless Laser Mouse for about a year & a half, It work’s great and has all the same stuff you mentioned the Microsoft 5000 has.

    However!! I paid nearly $90 for mine new.
    You paid $2? Oh man, I feel like I got ripped off now. 🙁

    Ebay is a great place when you can find deals. They are hard to come by at times though. It all depends on what you’re looking for and how flexible you are.
