Summary: This definitely would have been better with a smaller USB connector and some strain relief on the cord. It would have been 4 eggs, but when the cord splits and exposes copper so soon...
Pros: The mouse itself is great if you have limited space to work with. Cord is a good length for a laptop; not too short to restrict movement, but not long enough to make coiling necessary. It's inexpensive.
Cons: There's no strain relief on the cord. It split near the USB connector the first time I bumped against the wall with it. I have had it wrapped in layers of tape ever since. The USB connector itself looks huge when you see it sticking out of your laptop. I have to put it on the opposite side of the...
Summary: I wouldn't buy it again. If even as a desktop mouse it fell apart in a year, I don't want to know how long it would have took being carried around everywhere as a laptop mouse. Just to give you a comparison - I've got a Logitech V470 mouse for my laptop that I bought in the same order as this mouse.
Pros: It does everything you expect from a mouse. My girlfriend has been using this mouse for over a year on her desktop because she has small hands, and it still works.
Cons: The rubber on the sides and around the wheel have almost completely come off. So the wheel is practically unusable.
Summary: This mouse is way too small (and I have small hands, so I can imagine what a pain it is for someone with larger hands), so part of your hand is always kind of raised up, creating strain on the hand and up into the arm (when used for a longer period of time).
Cons: Unit seems to get confused and at times will detect movement here none exists and will move your mouse away from forms to other locations on the screen. O/S Windows Home Vista. Frustrating unit. It is just a little bit better than the touchpad on the lap top. I dont like having to relocat the mou...
Summary: If you want a very small mouse then this is it. I goofed I guess should have read the details better. I gave it a 2 rating because it's soooooo small a childs hand can cover it. IMHO it's not practical.
Pros: It's Cute.
Cons: Very Very Very small. Short USB wire... Very short.
Summary: Tacky blue light - only function is to contribute to global warming.
Pros: Low priced and works.
Cons: Too small and too sensitive. I am accustomed to using small notebook mice from Logitech, Sony, and Kensington. I can adjust the pointer movement speed in Windows to slow down the mouse pointer, but then my notebook trackpad works too slow; or the trackpad is OK, but mouse is too fast. This mouse ...
