Too Small-feels cheap in my hand
25 April 2014
Excerpt: Apparently not all mouses are the same size. This was much smaller than my previous mouse. Even thought I have gotten used to the size, the mouse feels lightweight and made of cheaper materials.
Excerpt: The mouse that I was replacing had a ball on the bottom, and on the ball design type the ball would get sticky and the curser would not go where you wanted it to. You would pick up the mouse put it back down move it and the curser would stay it the same place or just move slightly. This new optical mouse is fantastic, it is heavenly the way it responds and operates. Why Oh why did I wait so long to buy one. Thank you this is one of the best purchases that I have made!
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
Summary: I hope they never stop making this mouse because I love it so much...it is the perfect size for my hand. The only complaint I have is I have to buy it every year to year and a half because the little feet ware off.
Excerpt: This mouse was reasonably priced, but when we received it we found out that the cord was so amazingly short it wouldn't connect to a single computer we have in the office. Don't buy if you need to hook up to a PC tower on the floor!
Summary: I didn't realize just how small this is. It would be good for a child but not an adult. Also it only has a cord no more than 2 feet long! Probably ok for a laptop but not a desk top for sure. Price isn't bad but I lost big time when I had to return it. Cost them 5$ to ship it but over 10$ for me to ship it back. Since you don't get your shipping fees back on a return I ended up only getting 16.00 back instead of the 26.00 that I paid.
