Excerpt: I bought this mouse a couple months ago.I only had used this mouse for about a month. Then I went to use it and it wasn't working. I noticed the wire on the end of the mouse was broken. Everytime I would wiggle the wire it would work for a second. I dont recommend buying this product.
Excerpt: I bout a netbook computer about a year ago, and one of my biggest concerns was being able to "navigate" with the pad on it. I was used to a mouse and needed to find one small enough for a netbook. I found this Belkin compact mouse at a great price and cannot believe how great it works. It's very small (less than 3 inches) and has a retractable cord, which makes it nice because there is no long cord in the way. I can use it on any surface because it has an optical sensor.
Summary: I bought this mouse because I was transferred into a job that required a lot of travel and hotel stays. It must be said that this mouse is inordinately small. I wanted a small mouse, but this is strikingly small - people with sausage fingers should beware. It did take some getting used to, and certainly wouldn't want to work a 40 hour week with it, but it has been perfect for its purpose.
