Summary: I have two of these mice that I keep in different locations. One of them I have owned for over three years and I still use it constantly. Until Kensington quits making this mouse it will probably be the only one I use with my laptop. I have converted many others to this mouse.
Pros: Excellent battery life - I used my first one for over a year and a half everyday before the batteries ran out. Works wired or wireless for the time when you eventually do run out of batteries. Tracks well on almost any surface.
Cons: The USB RF receiver is slightly larger than other laptop mice out there, but that allows space for the mini-usb jack when you need to run your mouse with the wire.
Summary: I own many mice, but seldom attracted to brands other than Microsoft and Logitec. Because of the orange color, both cord(wrap around the inner body and the battery conceal it---very clever indeed) and cordless function, magnets holding the battery compartment sold me this mouse.
Pros: Thin, light, unusual orange color, both cord(hidden) and cordless, innovative shape, a bar of soap as some would describe it. Both buttons feel very good when press. The receiver storage on the back of the mouse is clever, and once it stored, it turns off the mouse. Using magnets to hold the batt...
Cons: Range is not great. Wheel is not very smooth. Receiver is a little big. It is not laser and a little pricey.
Summary: It is really thin, the right size for a notebook mouse, but still OK as a desktop mouse. It doesn't look like it is just a desktop mouse shrunk, it could easily be mistaken as a small desktop mouse.
Pros: Very comfortable to hold- well designed. Light, but durable. Slides effortlessly on any hard surface. Comfortable clicking and scrolling. Innovative battery-free mode, just in case.
Cons: If it were a bit wider, it would fit my hand better, but I have large hands. Wireless receiver is not "micro", you cant leave it plugged in all the time when carrying your laptop.
Summary: I would buy another keningston and replace my logitech vx revolution all together if they manage to make a model with the same shape, but with 5 buttons and lighter clicks.
Pros: This is a very practical mouse because it's very portable, but it works well for desktop in general. With this mouse you tend to use it with your palm laying down flat. I mainly use it with the computer that hook up to my HDTV, there is an advantage to this too. Since this mouse is flat you can m...
Cons: The fact that is it light and easy to sway around may take away a little precision, but to solve that you should turn down the mouse sensitivity a bit. The mouse clicks are 'heavy', they require a little more pressure and make a louder click noise compared to my logitech revolution, this is the m...
Summary: Caveat: I have repetitive stress issues with my wrists - my hands are small enough that the bulging 'ergonomic' mice really AREN'T ergonomic for me. This mouse, while not ergonomic, allows me to get work done once again instead of forcing me to limit my computer time.
Pros: Thin, small and compact. Doesn't aggravate my repetitive stress issues.
Summary: In my honest opinion this is a great NOTEBOOK mouse, you can't ask for more for this price. Just don't drop the mouse and you will be fine- not like it will break for good if you do anyway. It is magnetic, it slides back together like nothing happened.
Pros: It's thin and very portable. The case is magnetic and can open and close with ease. USB sensor can be tucked underneath the mouse so you won't lose it while traveling. If you run out of batteries it won't be a problem as there is a wired USB looping inside which you can take out and connect to yo...
Cons: This thing attracts dust, which I don't think anyone has mentioned. It does feel flimsy because the plastic is held together by magnets but I don't think this is a problem while you are using the mouse - only if you take it apart to refill batteries will it feel kind of dinky and cheap. Will fall...
Pros: The battery lasted me several months - it automatically goes to sleep after some period of inactivity and then wakes up again when you move the scroll wheel. The mouse moves very smoothly. The wireless range is pretty good, too. I love how compact it is, it fits well in my purse!
