Microsoft is greatly known for their Operating Systems and Office Application Suites, but beyond all these, they have also been able to make a name for themselves in the peripheral industry. They have released product lineups that are geared toward ergonomics and quality, while taking into account the lifestyle of people who will use their products. One of Microsoftâ€™s redesigned offerings that has just been recently released is the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, an optical mouse perfectly suited for notebook users, casual gamers, and business people who travel frequently.
The Mouse for People on the Go
Sporting comfortable button placements, a ring finger rest, and a wide body design, Microsoftâ€™s Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is obviously ergonomically designed. Anyone who is concerned about potentially suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome can rest easy as this mouse is not one that will cause such a problem. Users will appreciate the nice overall look of the black-and-silver design that can match any desktop or computer notebook, and traveling people will love the slim USB receiver that easily snaps into the bottom of the mouse for easy transport. Doing so will not only let you easily slip the mouse in your bag without having to worry about losing the receiver. You will get to automatically turn off the mouse as well. This cool way to save energy helps a lot, considering that the mouse runs on two AA batteries.
Moving on, this mobile mouse possesses 2.4 GHz wireless technology that allows connectivity for up to 30 feet. This wireless range makes this a good choice for people who own a home theatre PC. The 1000 dpi resolution may be too limiting for hardcore gamers, but with a few adjustments, can already be enough for any casual user. Aside from its high definition tracking and wireless technologies, the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 has five buttons that are easily programmable.
Through Microsoftâ€™s Intellipoint software, you will be able to customize all the mouse settings to your specific needs, and even adjust the scrolling and pointer speeds. Another notable feature, the Magnifier, lets you enlarge images on your screen with just a simple point and click of a button. Working with graphics or images becomes easier and faster because the Magnifier lets you see the smaller details. Designed for Windows Vista, it supports Windows Flip3D where youâ€™ll be able to see a 3D overlay of all open windows on your screen. A feature for switching between applications, this is far better than simultaneously pressing Alt and Tab because it allows users to cycle through each window just by rotating the scroll wheel.
With 5 customizable buttons, a 4-way scroll wheel, and an ergonomic design, any user on the go will greatly appreciate this mobile peripheral. A five year warranty from one of the leading computer companies in the world backs this mainstream mouse as a device already synonymous to high performance and reliability. Although already great for general use, Microsoftâ€™s Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is the ideal item for any notebook user who wants a wireless mouse with a receiver that can easily be stowed for easy transport.
