Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 Review : As usual, love Microsoft's MICE!

Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 Image LinkMicrosoft keyboards and mice have always rated high in my books.

It was a blessing in disguise when I started my new IT contract with a grimy, worn and bits-of-food-infested keyboard and mouse. Whoever was a previous owner was a grot. The keyboard was uncomfortable (old acer) as the keys were hard and stubborn. The mouse was so 2005 with only 2 click buttons and scroll wheel.

So, naturally, I jumped on Microsoft's website for their latest offerings. The Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 stood out. Mark ordered one for me and I smiled as I tucked away the old and setup the new.

The first thing that strikes you about the Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is it's tilted design. When I look at my hand as I type, it makes sense - our hands naturally rest on an angle. It took some minutes to get used to but now I'm using it hours on end without any discomfort.

It has the standard right and left buttons and scroll wheel, with the addition of two buttons above the thumb which are programmable. I use these as my 'back' and 'forward' buttons for web surfing. The default action for one of these extra buttons is the 'magnifier' function. This is pretty cool - simply press the button then it will highlight and magnify whatever you are viewing.

I also own 2 x Razor Copperhead Mice (one for home and other for laptop) and it felt kinda weird with my thumb not resting on buttons. But the thumb-groove is soft and grippy and allows for comfortable thumb placement.

Movement is precise and smooth. Being laser you're guarantee accurate pointing.
Still monitoring the battery life, but 1 week in battery indicator hasn't flashed red. I'll be happy if the battery at least lasts for 1 or 2 months before I need to change.

I rate the Microsoft Natural Laser Wireless Mouse 6000 at 9/10.

Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000: Uber-gonomic!

Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 Product PageIf you spend plenty of time in front of the computer then your hands definitely spend plenty of time on the keyboard and mouse. It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I noticed my fingers shaking involuntarily when moved to certain positions and the realization of good ergonomics and good computer habits hit me. The importance of an ergonomic mouse is now high on my list and although most are in a higher price bracket than most, it's a price well paid for. The Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is more than just a wireless laser mouse. It is first and foremost a natural ergonomic mouse, as the name suggests. The aim of this game is to relieve stress from the wrist and carpal tunnel and the Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 does this by a slight redesign of the overall shape of the mouse and therefore how your hand sits on it. Because of the way your hand rests on the mouse, tension is reduced and theoretically should increase productivity, not to mention the lifespan of your hand and wrist!

The Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 doesn't skimp out on features either. With a laser engine and wireless connection, this mouse is up there with the trend setters with the added feature of being comfortable. One word of caution though, it may take a while to get used to having your hand in the correct position with this mouse as years of using conventional mice has probably conditioned your hand and wrist to a certain position.

Features of the Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000:
- Revolutionary Ergonomic Design
Soft-touch materials and an ergonomic design fit your hand as naturally as a handshake.
- Instant Viewer
Too many open items on your desktop? Click the scroll wheel button to instantly display your open windows, then point and click to select.

- Battery Life Indicator
