Summary: I have used this product for quite a long time. I'm sure this review is far too late to help anyone, but here it is anway. This was never a very good mouse. It has a large number of bells and whistles but they never quite work right. - The battery life is very poor.

Summary: ...it stopped functioning as it should. I had intermitten problems with the bluetooth reciever working with both my laptop and home pc. More frustrating was the fact that the bluetooth reciever stopped detecting the mouse, which resulted in a very laborous exercise of repairing.

It cannot keep pace with the far cheaper presenters available, and the mouse develops a random love of scrolling the powerpoint when it is left sationary on a desk unless the batteries are brand new all the time It is...
Summary: I was unable to install this Mouse as I had to leave on an overseas assignment. It has failed to install properly and the mouse does not stay on for more than about eight seconds when I turn on the power switch underneath, despite trying several pairs of batteries.
