The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 is any medium mouse, dedicated to mobile PC users. It was announced as a more powerful laser or optical mouse; with its BlueTrack technology it would be able to function on surfaces polished, rough and tough again, but not glass or mirror. This really is an interesting thing against a laser mouse? That’s what we wanted to verify.
The ergonomics of the Wireless Mouse 4000 from Microsoft is the most conventional. Accordingly, it is also well suited to left-handers than right-handers. Classic, but efficient, since the grip is good, partly thanks to a rubber belt that ensures a good grip of the mouse lightweight (96 grams).
Just a mouse cell
If the weight is irrelevant-within reasonable dimensions, a mouse is pretty important. In this connection, the Wireless Mouse 4000 is not a model "dummy": 10.2 cm long, 4 cm high and 6 inches wide. However, it is quite compact and robust, apparently to store without too much difficulty in a bag for laptop and plump enough to provide good grip. Little more for the USB micro-receiver, the manufacturer provides a location under the mouse to be stored when not in use. Then the user is free to leave this very discreet adapter into the USB port or not.
With or without software, the effectiveness is ensured
The main advantage of this mouse is its BlueTrack technology. A technology that combines the efficiency and performance of optical and laser technologies. In practice, this is true, yet the interest of this process is to take a step back. Indeed, the BlueTrack technology adds the ability to use their mouse on a carpet, or polished furniture, and even a plaster wall. But some good laser mouse already do. Besides lack of comfort with optimum use is rare enough to work for hours sitting or lying down. This technology would have been really handy if it had worked on surfaces such as glass. A material commonly used on furniture contemporary computer.
However, no objection when the accuracy of the sensor. The Wireless Mouse 4000 responds to the slightest movement of the wrist. A more critical for mobile use, where one is often forced to move their mouse over a small area.
If no driver is required to use this mouse, at least under Windows Vista (our test platform) – Microsoft IntelliPoint software 7 proposes to customize by setting five buttons available. But that’s about all! For the rest of the options proposed by the software (pointer customization, speed of movement of the pointer, etc..) features are already available under Windows.

The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 is a small mouse designed to be used with netbooks, and features Microsoft’s BlueTrack technology which is designed to offer superior accuracy. The Wireless Mouse 4000 is a little mouse who makes its motion simple. If BlueTrack technology is shown performing, it stands out enough in terms of support, good laser technology. If it had been possible to use on glass, this product would have been even more interesting.
