Summary: Purchased this mouse for my laptop. Flows nice and smooth over mouse pad. It is a mini mouse, so it is very comfortable, surface has a nice feel to it. My son is left handed and he uses it with ease. Nothing to set up, just plug into USB port and you're ready to go.
Summary: Stumbled on this mouse by sheer accident many years ago. I am a gamer, and find this an awesome mouse, and repeatedly buy them over and over when replacement is needed (due to heavy use of scroll wheel from gaming). * They aren't big! I love for gaming, application development/programming, surfing, everything. Due to its small size and simplicity (not too many buttons), you can rip it back and forth quickly, and get better reaction performance in any game.
Summary: I have had this mouse for years now, and it has seen constant use. Let me just say that it works like a charm. It's cute, it lights up bright, and, well... it just works. The only problem I've had with mine is that now, after years of use with no problems, the scroller wheel is getting stuck sometimes. I think it may have something stuck in it, so I recommend not eating at your desk (something I have the bad habit of doing).
Summary: The thing that I like about this mouse is that the buttons are easy to click, very little pressure needed. The is really helping with the pain in my arm/wrist. It is likely that you will need a USB extension cable if using this on a docking station or desktop computer. It would be even better if they could toenail in a side button for browser back functionality.
Summary: This mouse performs as flawlessly as a full size optical mouse. I would consider a few benefits to owning this mouse as I have: smaller to transport, shorter wire that doesn't get in the way in cramped travel locations, no batteries to replace or to rattle around as some wireless mouse brands do. I am very pleased with its performance.
Summary: I bought this after looking at various models, and it is superb value for money. It has an on/off switch to save the battery when not in use, an indicator (green) when it is switched on, and (red) to let you now when the battery needs changing. It also has a storage facility in the battery compartment (for the wireless receiver), which is very handy.
Summary: This mouse is available in various colours and this particular variant is a nice light/dark metallic blue combo. The USB dongle unclips from the bottom of the base - when in the mouse, it ensures the mouse is switched off. The mouse uses a single AA battery and the nice thing is that rechargeable AA's work well. I would judge battery life as about 5 months with the supplied duracell alkaline AA and about 3 months with a fully charged Eneloop NiMH AA cell.
