The most comfortable mouse I've used

Human G-No, B&H Photo
30 July 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly

Not Quite What I Expected

J. Ruth, B&H Photo
29 July 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Bulky, No Turn Off Switch

Not good on Windows 8

Chas in Tx, B&H Photo
18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This mouse didn't work well on Windows 8 for me. Very glitchy & jumpy. Moved it to my laptop with Windows 7 and it works just fine so far.
  • Cons: Inaccurate Tracking

NOT Impressed AND part missing

Frustrated, Staples
24 October 2013
  • 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

Works better on a Mac than Windows

hdawg5000, Staples
15 September 2013
  • 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..

Good mouse, great value

Brian, Staples
12 September 2013
  • 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
  • Cons: Sensitive Wheel Button

Wonderful little piece of hardware

Jynx, Staples
27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I love a small mouse since I like to be able to take my devices with me when I travel, but I don't want one so small that it cramps my hand to use it. I also don't want one that sacrifices features I find essential. This one is a total package! Forward/Back buttons at your thumb, scroll wheel, multi-surface tracking and bluetooth.. It's all there in a neat attractive design that's both functional and durable.
  • Pros: Compact Size, Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Great battery life

Great bluetooth mouse

Ken, Staples
27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: If your laptop has bluetooth then you should consider this mouse. With native bluetooth support you can get rid of the dongle and free up a USB port for other uses.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Setup
