Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000

The Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 is designed to be light and compact, and to work on just about any surface you can find. In short, it's meant to be the perfect mouse to leave hanging around in the kitchen or living room for anyone in the family to pick up and use. At around £22, there are cheaper devices out there, though, so does this mouse do enough to justify its purchase?

A satisfying handful
The 2000's build quality is impressive. The mouse is quite small, but it fits neatly in your hand, thanks to its pleasing rounded shape. Rubber moulding on either side of the mouse keeps your thumb in place and means this device can be used equally well as part of a right- or left-handed set-up. It's extremely comfortable to use for long periods of time and, mercifully, will keep your hands cramp-free.

The 2000 has just the standard two click buttons and a scroll wheel. The buttons aren't excessively sensitive, and the scroll wheel, while slightly slippery, clicks on either side, so you can navigate horizontally (you'll have to first download the free IntelliPoint software from Microsoft's Web site, though).
