Summary: This is my second time returning one of these mice. The first one developed a loose internal part, and the scroll wheel stopped working. After returning that, the second one worked for about 1 hour. I then left it on its charger overnight, and it is now completely dead. After using this and the Logitech MX for a few years now, I think I will give a touchpad a try -- air mice just seem to be too unreliable.
Summary: This is my third Gyration product. The first mouse they sold was great, the last one I had worked for a short period, then died. I thought I would give them another chance, so I bought this one, and it was the worst mouse I have ever owned.
Summary: So I had seen my friends using his gyration for doing presentations etc. He has a much older model. I've borrowed and used it for my own presentations, so I know how an air mouse works, and am comfortable with it. But this thing is garbage. It's construction feels flimsy. It uses a proprietary battery, that can't be replaced. If you want to use it for a laptop on the go, it's about the worst option possible for a road warrior.
This mouse works so poorly you will want to throw it at the wall...

Summary: I purchased this mouse hoping to use it for my office, and media center, it has worked for nether. First off the mouse has a 10-15 foot range, not the 100 foot range it promises. I contacted gyration and they explained that I might have a bad receiver and sent me a replacement. After I continued to have trouble any time I was more than 10 feet away, they explained that I might have radio interference.
