Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000
- It's ergonomic, comfortable and easy to use
- Not attractive, it's not plug and play
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 may look unusual but it's one of the most comfortable and ergonomic we've tested. The ability to enable different commands for the buttons and wheel in different programs particularly impressed us.
Price$ 99.95 (AUD)
Let's be honest, if you've looked at the picture above, you're probably thinking the same thing we did when we first saw the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000: it's fairly ugly.
The black and shiny silver plastic combined with its unusual shape results in a rather unsightly looking device. There's logic to the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000's design of course. The ergonomics of it allow your hand to rest comfortably around its girth and use it to navigate your desktop without straining digits.
In fact, we found the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 a pleasure to use and its overall look was by no means a reflection of its comfort and ease of use.
Although setup (involving no more than installing the driver from the disc and plugging in the 2.4GHz USB receiver dongle and inserting the battery Microsoft supplies) was very simple, you can't simply plug in the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 and start work.
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 requires an initial charge of seven hours, while a drained battery needs around an hour's recovery time on the charging plate before it can be used again for more than a brief hiatus.
While charging, a light glows green on the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000's mouse-shaped charging plate.
Left and right buttons on the Laser Mouse work in the same way as on any other mouse, but the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 also features two smaller buttons located where our thumb rested.
These allowed us to go back a step, or to zoom in to the page/document we were viewing.
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000's wheel was smooth and flowed easily. We were also impressed that the software allowed us to assign different actions to each buttons.
As well as being able to assign these as shortcuts to open, save, cut and paste, the programmable hotkeys could be used for program-specific commands and even to change the style and speed of the pointer.
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 comes bundled with a charging plate, power cable, USB stick, CD and rechargeable AAA battery.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
