Summary: I liked the design of this mouse which is why I ordered it - wireless, small and low profile. I was so disappointed I returned it after trying it for the maximum length of time. The usb connector has to be removed from the computer and stored inside the mouse or the battery runs down about every 2-3 days. No on-off switch - very inconvenient and expensive with new batteries every other day.
Summary: I love this mouse for the purpose of being a mouse, and I have tested it as a presenter tool and still enjoy the function - which can be a difficult things! My only con for this item, it would be great if it had a laser pointer built in. Trying to find a decent laser pointer is difficult - and not spend the world on it - and then to have to balance multiple products can be a challenge in a presentation. But other than that upgrade potential, I love this item!
Summary: I love my slimbades. comfy in hands, slim profile. The scroll wheel ruins the whole darn thing. Ithere is no texture on the scroll wheel and it makes it incredibly slippery to use. To use it properly to scrll up or down. you really need to PUSH hard down on it with her finger which can be exhausting after even only 30 minutes. Going back!
Summary: I really like this mouse. Its very flat profile helps reduce wrist and finger strain if you use your mouse a lot (like many hours a day). Overall, it is a bit a smaller than a full size mouse. It has two major negatives: 1. It goes to sleep after a few minutes of inactivity and you have to click one of the buttons to get it to wake up again. Simply moving it around is not enough like with most mice 2.
Summary: it has very short battery life and the track wheel is basically worthless. The track wheel is way to slick so it is nearly impossible to get it to scroll. If you push hard enough to get some contact it will click the wheel. Not good. So, unless you have naturally sweaty finger tips or like licking you fingers try a different mouse.
Summary: Mouse will not work in presenter mode; using Win 7, 64 bit OS and MS Office 2007. I called Kensington who told me this has been discontinued and does not work in Windows 7. That *might* have been handy information to include in the specifications, don't you think? Returned item to Amazon.
Summary: The mouse is not smooth at all. Very poor design and it is hard to use it if you have big hands. Sometimes the cursor doesn't move or there is a delay; I changed the battery, but it is still the same.
Summary: I have another Kensington slimline mouse and love it. That's why I bought a second one. I liked the blue and the presenter features. When I got it the scroll wheel was so inconsistent it only took me 10 minutes to decide to return it. Too bad. The rest of the product is excellent.
