Summary: I got 2 years of use out of this mouse but then again I only paied around 15 bucks shipped at the time. Its a basic mouse that is stylish but it doesnt make up for its inherent flaws in designs. Theres actually another model of Kensington mice that has a removable top where a usb cable coils out and you have the option of using a battery or power from your computer.
Pros: Its has a really low profile, Ive noticed that there was much less fatigue on my hand.
Cons: Way more faults than their are strengths. For one, the dongle is a bad design, I used this on my laptop and it was just obtrusive. The thinner plastic part eventually broke off. Another thing, I dont know if its indicative of the quality of the mouse but the battery cover is not level. Over a period of months it grinds against any surface and either accumulates crud or looses plastic. The mouse eventually died because left mouse click just stopped working one day.
Pros: Effective wireless communication. Very ergonomic feel--large yet trim.
Cons: Quick and jumpy action. Requires resetting tracking speed of computer (iMac) to slowest setting. Also, occasionally is difficult to get cursor between letters of a document (it wants to highlight entire words and lines), requiring more adjusting.
Pros: -Great Style, in Titanium colored casing -Has the USB part on the mouse, and you take it off to put in computer -Low battery indicator on the scroll wheel -Rubberized on the side of the mouse for extra comfort
Kensington Ci70LE Wireless Mouse: The MouseTthat LostIt's Squeek
29 July 2010
Summary: I bought this from Amazon in May of last year for around £20 and is the red version. I choose this one as all the reviews were really good and as someone that had never used a wireless mouse from what I read it seemed ideal for me. It was so easy to use I was happy with the choice that I'd made. For a novice like me it was ideal. You just open the packet, put batteries in the mouse and then plug the wireless receiver into the USB port and away you go.
Summary: I'm no mouse expert, but the Kensington Ci70 mouse is, as far as I'm concerned, unfussy (no irritating buttons); robust (mice have a hard life); and comfortable (not unimportant - it's your hand's second most useful function). Happiness.
Summary: I bought this mouse to complement my laptop and after my original mouse for my desktop broke I used it there also. Overall the design is great, it looks nice and also an odd colour. I like the way it feels in your hand and does the job perfectly. I have to say though after about six months of use the rubber around the outside started to come off and now there is a really soft bit on the rubber.
