Summary: The Duracell batteries just died on me after 2 months of average use (I did turn it off when not in use). This is less than the 3 months advertised. The side buttons are awkwardly positioned and hence useless. Any time I try to press them, my index finger will twitch and inadvertently hit the left mouse button :( This may or may not be true for others depending on hand size. The sides (thumb and pinky grips) are curved too far inward.
Pros: Plug & Play., Bluetooth functionality is good.
Cons: Low Battery Life (2 months), Useless side buttons, Looks ergonomic, but does not feel like it.
Pairs with one device at a time, occasionally disconnects. Nice construction.

Summary: I was hoping to use this mouse on multiple devices (at different times of course) without re-pairing each time. Can't happen as confirmed by Gigabyte customer support. Must clear device code by long pressing button on bottom till blue light starts blinking and repair to next device. Sometimes requires reboot of receiver device. When connected to my Dell m4600 Precision it would occasionally disconnect.
Summary: I bought this to use with my Nexus 10 tablet and for that it works great. However, my newish HP laptop with Windows 7 really hates it and it almost never connects. I'm not sure if the problem is my laptop or the mouse, so take this issue with a grain of salt, it might be fine for you. Mouse does feel nice in the hand and seems to be built to last. Also, it comes with a hard plastic case which was a nice addition.
Great when it's on, but falls asleep too quickly and is hard to wake up

Summary: When it's on and active, this mouse is perfect. It feels solid, has smooth and accurate tracking, and the buttons are nice and crisp. After powering the mouse on, it associates with my laptop very quickly. Also, it works on my Windows laptop, Linux laptop, and Surface RT (it can only be paired with one at a time). I've had the mouse for about 5 weeks and the batteries that came with it are still fine.
Summary: Be warned. Either Amazon is selling old inventory or selling refurbished models as new. Maybe buy it somewhere else. I haven't had this even a month yet and the included batteries are dead. Changing them was a challenge because I needed a precision screwdriver to remove them, once removed I found, packed under the batteries, a crumpled up battery insert that is supposed to make battery removal simple. This means this mouse is not new.
Summary: I first tried it on my new Lenovo Yoga 13. Response was mushy and imprecise. I found my wrist aching after a few minutes using it. I compared it to an old Logitech wireless mouse with a dedicated USB adapter and it just did not measure up. Since the Yoga 13 has a built in Bluetooth adapter, it is impossible to know if it is the mouse or the adapter. Alternatively, it might be the work surface which is an oak veneer.
Summary: If only this mouse didn't lose connection so often it would have garnered a 5-star rating from me. I have large hands, and this mouse is very comfortable to use. The side button, for going back to a previous web page is very convenient. As I said, though, if only . . .
Summary: This is a little mouse. Although I failed to see it in the description, this is a notebook mouse intended for someone with far smaller hands than I have. I tried to replace a Logitech MX500 that had been pounded into submission with this mouse, but there was really only room for my fingertips and my palm was resting on the mousepad. Now, as far as notebook mice are concerned, this one would be rather nice. The receiver is tiny, and it takes 2 x AAAs so it is lightweight.
Summary: It is basically the cheapest bluetooth mouse with 5 buttons. Other BT and Wifi mice in this range don't have as many features or look very uncomfortable to hold due to their gimmicky shapes. (I'm looking at you, SONY) It doesn't come with its own BT dongle, but those are cheap and most decent laptops/netbooks will come with one. It's fairly small and compact, but still quite chunky due to its height.
Pros: Small/Compact, Light/2xAAA batteries, Easy to setup, Price
Cons: Slightly difficult to hold, Slightly difficult to use thumb back/forward buttons, Must have BT receiver on your PC already
Summary: Habe jetzt eine andere Bluetooth Maus, da die Gigabyte leider nach ganz kurzer Zeit schlapp machte. Die Handlichkeit der Maus hatte mich allerdings überzeugt. Normalerweise hätte sie 5 Sterne verdient, wenn sie denn durchhalten würde...
