Getting There

BobbyMcGee, Hewlett-Packard
13 June 2014
  • Summary: I had a really good review written up, but I then noticed that it states to avoid talking about the price of the product. When writing a review on any type of product, a major point to determining how anyone feels about their purchase, starts with how much they spent on it and if they feel like it was worth the buy. Overall, I think that this was a great attempt at a new design, there are still a few bugs to work out with it.

Good looking but funky

Bobbeaux, B&H Photo
19 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This seemed like a good purchase at first but once I got it home and started using it, I don't really like it. First of all, it makes a strange noise that is supposed to simulate clicking of the wheel. It sounds like a creaking spring and is impossible to turn off if you have a Mac. Supposedly you can turn the sound off on windows but I'm not sure. The touch pad on the top didn't seem to track very well. I'd give it 2.5- stars.

Good design, poor execution

LDog17, Hewlett-Packard
26 November 2013
  • Summary: This mouse is difficult to control and only has one setting, it does not contour to your hand, which I thought it did. Also, it's difficult to stop the scrolling noise.

"Wha? No Bluetooth in an otherwise PERFECT travel mouse?"

java-man, CNET
20 November 2013
  • Pros: Closer to feel of a desktop mouse than any travel mouse. Fits palm instead of just fingers. Turns off & packs flat. Comparisons to desktop mice are unfair - compared to typical travel mouse, its amazing.
  • Cons: Here we have a mouse PERFECTLY designed for travel with a compact laptop or netbook, but it's not Bluetooth?? Duh. MS would sell untold thousands if it were equipped and marketed correctly!!

Uncomfortable

Finn949, Staples
2 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I hate it. I bought two and will return the unopened item. If your wrist is prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, do not use this item! The design looks cool and is very easy to set up. I like that it flattens for storage in laptop bags for travel.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Response, Long Range, Quiet
  • Cons: Uncomfortable Design, Wrist Will Quickly Hurt

Hard to scroll for me

CLewis, Staples
27 February 2012
  • Excerpt: if you have small hands, they you will like this mouse, if you have larger hands, or long fingers, it isn't for you. The scroll is a flat surface and when using photoshop and even web browsing, I find it is very hard to keep my finger on the little flat strip surface for scrolling. I have to stop and look at the strip and replace my hand constantly. I am going back to the old fashioned one.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking
  • Cons: Catches Easily, Slow Response, Uncomfortable Design
