Excerpt: I'm a professional video editor and work with a mouse significantly in my day-to-day workflow. Over the years, I've developed severe pain in my hands and arms due to carpal tunnel. I tried a few different mouse configurations and accessories to minimize the pain, but to no avail. About a year ago, I decided to try this mouse after enjoying the feel of it in my hand in the store.
Excerpt: I bought this because it was listed under the 'mini' category, but this is not a miniature mouse. In addition, the usb plug-in is rather bulky. I do not like the fact that the only way to turn the mouse off is to either take the battery out or reattach the usb plug-in to it. On a positive note, the mouse has great features. The scroll wheel is smooth and has horizontal scrolling.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
Excerpt: Opened up package from SEALED UPS delivery, AND first thing noticed NO BATTERIES. Box says batteries included. (now I had to run to store to get 2 AAA batteries) Easy to sync with laptop. BUT you can ONLY go backwards on a page, can't go forward. ONLY one button. AND the scroll wheel is SLOW.
Pros: Glides Smoothly
Cons: Inaccurate Tracking, No Back Button, Slow Response
Excerpt: I used this initially with my Windows 8 laptop that has bluetooth built in. Would always disconnect at random times and it would be a nightmare to reconnect it. Also, when turning the computer on after sleep mode, it would never connect. Very frustrating. I also own a MacBook Pro 2009 model and it works flawlessly! Connects easily and stays connected! No problems or complaints with my experience on a Mac..
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
Excerpt: I had trouble finding a wireless mouse that uses bluetooth instead of a wireless USB receiver, but this fit the bill. It's compact but useful, and has good response, and saves me a precious USB port (and utilizes the built in bluetooth of my mac).
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Bluetooth No Dongle, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly
