Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series Review
The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series is a compact and stylish mouse with many hidden talents and features waiting to be discovered. The 3500’s main feature is BlueTrack Technology that couples optical with the precision of laser power for exactness and accuracy. This enables the 3500 to operate on almost any surface, barring glass and mirrored surfaces, without a mouse pad. Yay for couch surfing! This includes things like a wooden table, the leather on the arm of a chair, carpet, or upholstered furniture.
The Mobile 3500 lives up to it’s name in being lightweight and easy to transport. A small, and out of the way Nano Transceiver stays plugged in to your USB port, and has no messy cords or hassle when you are on the go. Simply insert the transceiver into the port, and your mouse is ready for use, with no complicated installation. The 3500 runs with one AA alkaline battery, which is included in the purchase of this mouse. With a very energy efficient design, the mouse will run for 8 months on one battery. An on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse conserves even more energy for a longer battery life. A red light above the Microsoft logo will inform you when the battery is running low.
The Mobile 3500 hundred has a streamlined design that is comfortable in the left or right hand. With the simple download of IntelliPoint, you can easily reassign the left, right, and scroll button to suit your needs. There are almost 40 options for each button including a magnifying glass, Flip 3D for viewing each of your windows, precision booster, a gaming toggle, and so many more.
The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 is the right size to fit in the palm of your hand, without being too small for functionality. It will be easy to transport. Overall, it is a great buy. The mouse has a 3 year limited warranty and is operational with Windows 7, Vista, XP, and Mac OS X 10.4-10.6. Coming in at $29.99 at Best Buy stores – it’s even on sale this week for $19.99, this is a reasonable price for a versatile mouse.
