Cons

Lack of button programability severely limits mouse capabilities - can't accommodate individual programs or left-handed people

Dongle component is poorly constructed - weak, flimsy design is not conducive to intensive travelling

Forward and back page buttons lack feedback/tactility - users may accidentally trigger these components without wanting to, and vice versa

The Microsoft Explorer Mini Mouse is a battery-operated, wireless BlueTrack mouse that connects to a Windows or Macintosh PC via a mini USB transceiver. It utilizes Microsoft’s proprietary BlueTrack technology, which works on any surface, including granite countertops, airport carpets, and even a park bench. Included is a mini USB transceiver that can be snapped onto the bottom of the mouse to turn it off, thereby saving battery life. The major drawback to this is that the transceiver must be removed from the computer and placed back into the mouse every single time that a user wants to shut the mouse off.  Additional features include glowing blue lighting effects, 4-way scrolling, and a 4-month battery lifespan.
