GE Wireless Optical Mini Mouse - Welcomed in my house ANYDAY!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Okay I admit it, I spend entirely too much of my time on-line these days. Who doesn't? While I admit I am an Internet junkie and live on-line at times I want to be able to navigate easily and quickly. I own both a laptop and a desktop but the only one that ever gets used is the laptop. The mouse-pad is convenient yes, but it is not fully efficient for me. The GE Wireless Mini Optical Mouse solved my little annoyance about a year ago.
Excerpt: I didn't know they existed. I guess I never thought about it. I was surprised when I saw the display at my local target of a wireless mouse. I love my laptop but I am not a fan of the touchpad. I don't want to mess with a mouse with cords hanging everywhere since my laptop rarely stays in the same place for very long. I spent the $34.99 and bought the pink one! :) I love it.
Surprisingly good mouse especially for that low price

Excerpt: I have two of these little guys, bought at Big Lots one after the other. Gave one to my wife to replace the P.O.S. GearHead wireless optical mouse she was using. I used the other one for almost a year. Always worked, nice light touch, scroll wheel never slipped. It was the traveling mouse, and it held up well. I only deduct a bit for the uninspired styling and ergonomics. Recently my daughter's GearHead mouse stopped working and I gave her my little GE.
Summary: I purchased this mouse about a year ago when my laptop touch pad began giving me problems. Once I was finally able to get the mouse and receiver to sync I was pleased. One thing that was immediately apparent was that I was going through batteries like crazy. I would even pop the battery out when it was not in use, but that did not help at all. Also the battery compartment would not always close correctly.
Summary: I had a really hard time to properly insert the batteries as the inner spring kept on pushing them out. Once I did (placed a small piece of paper inside) there hasn't been a problem with it. In addition, I'd like to point out that it DOES NOT look the same as the one shown in the advertisement. It is a bit larger and bulkier. The wheel protrudes a lot from the rest of the mouse and it is not as slim as I'd have liked.
Summary: I got this for my lap top. It did not work well, continuously jumping. I purchased a logitech wireless mouses, after getting too frustrated with this one. I have heard this is a common problem among the GE wireless mouses. The logitech one worked well for me. I however lost it. I am now using a case logic mouse, which is cheap, small, and does not require batteries. It is my favorite yet!
Summary: THe little wireless thing that you plug into the computer stopped finding the mouse within 2 weeks of buying the mouse. It also had some odd little quirks working with a Mac. You have to sync it twice if you want it to work properly. I haven't called tec support yet, but at least it has a warranty for five years...
