Windows 7: Mouse Suggestions?

Well, a final update to this thread.
It's hilarious.

I bought the Microsoft Mobile Mouse 6000 today.
Priced at $39.95 at Staples, but they price match, and I found Fry's selling it for $29.95, and I had $16.00 in ink rebates - so final price was $13.00.

Get it home and the Universal scroll doesn't work!!

Went to Microsoft Keyboard Ctr and realized you have to just set middle click.

Now it works, so I try my "defective" Mobile mouse 4000 with that setting and it works- this is after a Microsoft tech did a remote on my computer and told me it was defective.

Before i found out it was ok, I called Microsoft because they sent me an email to return the defective one ( and pay shipping) but they left off the order no.

The rep said - "we'll just send you a replacement" - keep the old one, no charge.

So now I have a new 6000, and perfectly fine 4000 and new 4000 on the way.

The 6000 is very nice, by the way - smooth as silk.

lazer is way better than optical. you should be able to move 4 foot away and it should still work.

You're right - at 6 feet it still works.

I tried that yesterday and it drove me CRAZY!!

My screen was increased to what seemed about 500% and I couldn't get rid of it.

I had to Google the solution- Accessories>access> magnifier and QUIT!!

if you installed software, you make adjustments in it for how fast you want pointer to move, how fast you want to scroll up and down, left and right, and theres a folder to click on to adjust how fast to open files by double clicking. i use the microsoft software even for my logitech. logitechs software isnt precise as microsofts.
