Even if its software products are constantly plagued by all sorts of bugs and problems, one thing's for sure: Microsoft has come up with a very decent line-up of computer peripherals over the past couple of years, its products delivering both advanced features and quite an OK level of reliability. And that's also the case with the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000, released back in the first half of 2008, which incorporates a couple of features that will make the users of the Vista operating system very happy.
For example, the device incorporates the Windows Flip 3D Key, which displays a 3D overlay of all open windows, and then cycles through them. Additionally, the mouse allows users to point and click in order to enlarge and edit details using the Magnifier.
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 uses high-definition laser technology for precise and smooth tracking. It also offers users 5 configurable buttons, for quick access to media, programs, and files, as well as 4-way scrolling with Tilt Wheel Technology.
The mouse from Microsoft also offers users an extended level of freedom, since it's 2.4 GHz Wireless Mini Transceiver has a functioning range of around 30 feet (10 meters) and is guaranteed to work even in crowded wireless environments, as for example office buildings. Moreover, it will occupy a relatively small amount of space around the user's desk, since it measures just around 81.9 mm x 121 mm.
The peripheral is also quite easy to recharge, since it will automatically start flashing when the batteries are drained, and then all the user has to do is simply place the mouse on the AC charging station to recharge.
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 is available at several retailers somewhere in the 60 – 70 US dollars price range, which is a pretty normal price point for such an advanced Microsoft product.
