Microsoft QVA-00001 Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 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 Microsoft’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, Microsoft’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.

Microsoft QVA-00001 Wireless Laser Mouse 6000

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 Microsoft’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 you’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, Microsoft’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.

Extra Functionality Minus The Wires

l23-7066-feature2.jpgLogitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse

Keyboards and mice have been around since the earliest days of modern personal computers, and pretty much, their basic design remains the same. Admittedly, there’s really nothing wrong with the way they look and work, so why innovate, right? It might seem as such, but in reality, the applications we use today have evolved, bringing about a noticeable increase in complexity. So when a company like Logitech tries to innovate upon the basic designs of keyboards and mice in such a way that they augment our ability to use modern applications, we can’t help but smile. The Logitech MX500 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse comes as one of their latest products, and if previous models are an indication, then it’s safe to say that this one is impressive as well.

The Logitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse is light years away from your average input devices. This one not only sends information to your PC but it is also capable of sending information back to you. Through the LCD keyboard display, you’ll be able to view information about the application you’re using and check the date and time at a single glance. The LCD also helps you communicate quicker as it can notify you of newly received e-mail and instant messages.

The Logitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse connects through the latest Bluetooth technology, ensuring speedy and uninterrupted communication with your PC. In addition, it can even synchronize your system’s calendar and address book with other Bluetooth-enabled devices like phones and PDAs with a single button press.

Featuring touch-sensitive media controls, controlling the volume on your media player or adjusting the size of images becomes an easier task. Other than that, the Logitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse also facilitates in launching your favorite programs, websites and document folders through programmable smart keys. As a result, you quickly get to do what you need to do instead of having to point and click through dozens of menus and folders.

Using Windows Media Center has also become more convenient because even from 60 feet away, the Logitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse still allows you to control your PC without a hitch. With the powerful laser technology found in the Rechargeable MX Laser Mouse, which gives it 20x the tracking power of the standard optical, using the mouse on virtually any surface is also very possible. The mouse even has an LED indicator which lets you know when it’s time to charge up. The convenience this product brings is truly one of a kind.

Another attractive feature of the Logitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse is its superior tilt wheel. Most ordinary tilt wheels you find in other models only allow you to scroll up and down. But with the Rechargeable MX Laser Mouse, you can do much more than that as it also allows you to scroll from side to side and zoom in and out of images with ease and simplicity.

Allow yourself greater convenience with the Logitech MX5000 Cordless Keyboard & Rechargeable Mouse. Style, substance and basic functionality—you’ll find it all in this quality Logitech product.
