I've got one of these for £25 off Amazon and its great. Recommended.
A great price! However, about 4 weeks ago, I ordered one off Ebay for about £24 delivered - I hated it. Normally MS mice are real quality, but with the one I received, I couldn't believe how rough the mouse wheel felt. This was as a surprise, as before I ordered it, I was using the larger MS bluetooth full size mouse....the scroll wheel on that is smooth as silk.

Mine went back on Ebay! do you find your scroll wheel? Really notchy/clicky or reasonably smooth?

Edit: Just checked Amazon US (tends to have more reviews) & pretty quickly found this one...

Hi, I'm from Singapore and I bought this mouse on 16 Nov when it was first released in Singapore. I liked the look, colour, and design of this mouse, and the Bluetooth function worked flawlessly, but this is the worst mouse I've ever bought. What's the reasons:

1. Before opening the package of this mouse (and any other Microsoft Mouse), you cannot tell if the scroll wheel is smooth and frictionless, sticky and rubbery but lack tactile feedback, or with the tactile feedback that most mouse provides. This mouse provides the tactile feedback type scroll wheel.... In comparison, all Logitech mouse provide standard and consistent tactile feedback, except for the new MX/VX Revolution/Nano with MicroGear Scroll Wheel which can switch between smooth frictionless scrolling and tactile feedback scrolling. And you can tell that by looking at the box!

2. The scroll wheel is a hugh disaster! The spring loaded tactile feedback is so strong that within an hour of use, my finger is already in pain. Also, this scroll wheel has several design flaws. Firstly, scrolling down is relatively quiet, but scrolling up produces a distracting 'tack', 'tack', 'tack' sound that'll drive you nuts! Also, at a certain position when scrolling down, the scroll wheel will get stuck and I need to use even high force to 'jump' over the stuck position. I've used mouse from cheap unbranded make, I've used Logitech's mouse, I've used Labtec cordless mouse, and even A4Tech's mouse, but they all have a consistent and comfortable scroll wheel tactile feedback.

3. The Back button cannot be re-assigned to another function, even when I installed the latest Microsoft IntelliPoint 6.2 software. I couldn't even find support for this mouse from the list of mouse that this software supports! Although the mouse does not require any software to work on its own, installing the Microsoft IntelliPoint software provides features such as customising the scroll speed, and providing indication on battery strength. However, even choosing another similar mouse with a customisable Back button does not allow me to customise this mouse's Back button. It's stuck to standard IE Back function!
(review continues, but truncated for the sake of clarity!)

I can live without the wheel so long as the rest of the kit works fine, guess I'll find out in due course.

That's akin to buying a car & saying I can live with the seats & driving position being really uncomfortable, just so long as it runs!

As it goes, the build quality was fine, it felt good to hold...looked the nuts, but oh, that scroll weel - festival of suck

Great price though, so - if you can live with a notchy scrollwheel - HOT!
Does anyone know how to connect these mice to laptop bluetooth without using the USB receiver come with them? I have a 4000 version and have been looking for solution over internet for ages with no luck.

Just a warning....this mouse doesn't come with a USB bluetooth dongle (well, at least mine didn't! Your laptop will need bluetooth built in or a USB bluetooth dongle).
