View Full Version : Review: Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000

Just happened to pick one up a while ago. Awesome features, at a pretty good price, and looks decent.


What I have found with this mouse is it has tight responsiveness, and along with its sleek features, creates a wonderful mouse for just about anything.

1000 dpi Laser
Side-Scrolling feature built into scroll wheel
One-click access to all open windows
Built-in magnifying tool on the center right mouse button
Programmable buttons and drivers

This mouse connected instantly to the wireless reciever, and it adds a nice touch at making things less of a hassle. Nice metallic black finish with silver


I think this mouse should have come with interchangeable faceplates. Would be nice to add a touch of color to the desktop.

Center wheel doesn't have the appropriate "click" when you scroll the scroll wheel.

Appearance : 8/10
Practicality: 10/10
Ease of Use: 9.5/10

Overall: 9.5/10

If you like the 5000 (which I use at work and don't like much, mouse doesn't always respond too well), you'd REALLY like the 6000 series!
I use it at home. The mouse is even better, is a true laser mouse, not an LED mouse, better shape (as long as you are right handed).
