Summary: I was disappointed to find out this was a discontinued product. I originally purchased this mouse several years ago and after constant daily use, a multitude of presentations, 2 trips internationally, and numerous domestic trips, I lost the USB insert. It was still working perfectly. Desperate to find another one, I located a private seller on Amazon.
Summary: NOTE -- this is not a review for this product (I bough the Slimblade Media Notebook Set a few years ago) -- just a shout out for this company! After owning, using and enjoying my wireless mouse for 3 years, it quit working properly. I called customer service, faxed them a copy of my receipt and they replaced the mouse -- no hassle!! they even FedEx'd the new mouse. Thank you Kensington.
Summary: Overall I'm happy with this mouse. The price was good, the functions are simple, and the mouse does everything it advertises and a little bit more. My only complaint is that you really have to push hard to right click on items when you're using the mouse for normal browsing.
Summary: I never knew such a mouse existed until I was searching for a new presenter to use with PowerPoints. My stipulations were that the presenter be simple, compact, and have a small USB receiver. I didn't expect to find one that fit that bill while also doubling as a mouse, not to mention being cheaper than most dedicated presenters.
Summary: It's exactly what I wanted. It works well w/ my laptop, is great at doing presentations, and does not take up a lot of space. Easy to use and set up-literally, plug and play the instant I connected it to my laptop. Can't beat the price either. I've had it for over a month now and am still using the same batteries it came with.
This presenter mouse is almost perfect for the classroom

Summary: I'm a college teacher who bought this device to use in the classroom. I agree with many of the previous reviewers who noted the positive points about it: design, functionality, compactness, and ease of use. I also agree that it isn't as easy to hold as a full-size mouse that is contoured to one's hand, but that's not why I bought it.
Summary: I wanted a thin mouse to pack with my dell mini 9 in it's thin sleeve. Everything on the mouse works fine. Wish there were more buttons and the shape isn't the greatest for long time use (flat instead of rounded) but it's a lot better than trying to use the mini touchpads on laptops. Got it for 25 at cc and that was a low enough price for me to bite.
