So So

M. Sheridan, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Seemed very good, but after a few weeks we started having problems with the cursor twitching and jumping around at times. In the past with other mice I've usually found this to be caused by fluff or a tiny thread in the optical path, but this didn't seem to be the case here.

Nice fit, but middle click doesnt work on MAC

Guy Harwood, Amazon

  • Summary: The mouse is a good shape and fits nicely in the hand. A real shame that the wheel click / middle click does not work on the mac. Also, when slowing down to click on things the pointer would jump around.

Very poor for CAD user

  • Summary: I bought this mouse as I have been struggling to find one that was big enough for my hand, I was initially impressed by the size and the shape which was just what I was looking for. My initial happiness was very quickly replaced by sadness when I realised the mouse performed horribly.

Part of the Comfort Range?

  • Excerpt: I got this mouse as part of a keyboard and mouse set. This set was specifically design to be an ergonomic set which would make the devices more comfortable. I have already written a review for the accompanying keyboard but the mouse has similar issues too. It is just not comfortable!
  • Pros: BlueTrack Technology makes it possible to use the mouse on more surfaces
  • Cons: NOT ergonomic  -  despite what they say, awful scrollwheel

Deeply Flawed

HyperLight Research, memoryexpress.com
3 July 2012
  • Summary: Looks good and is comfortable to use, but has huge technical issues due to using cheap, out-of-date technology. Batteries for 1 year of normal use exceed the cost of the mouse.
  • Pros: Cheap Very configurable drivers Comfortable if you have big hands
  • Cons: Horrible battery life - about 4 weeks of full-time use - 1/10 to 1/20 of the life of other wireless mice. Interferes with WiFi - if you (or someone nearby) is heavily using your WiFi to transfer files or stream video, the mouse will miss clicks, miss scrolls, and have heavy lag. No power switch -...

  • Excerpt: Looks good. Have been utilizing it for a couple of hours a night for 2+ months and battery indicator still reads green. Comfortable, superior Lefty/Righty layout. Middle click and side buttons are a bit inconsistent. Frustrating for gaming.

Wireless mice just got a whole lot better

  • Pros: Sleek design, long bttery life, excellent tracking, low cost
  • Cons: Not particulary suitable for dedicated gaming
