Summary: Bluetooth range is not good. If there is ANYTHING in the way, you will lose signal, and sometime it won't come back on it's own and you have to reset the mouse to use it again. When the computer comes back from sleeping it also takes forever to get Bluetooth signal again.
Summary: For general use, generously a three-star mouse; for presentations, a one-star mouse. Presenter/Media Mode buttons are a great advent, and the laser pointer is great for your presentations or pets. However, this is a Bluetooth mouse and suffers from the lag issues associated with all Bluetooth mice.
Summary: Pros: * Bluetooth compatibility (see cons) * Built-in laser pointer * Quality carrying case for both mouse and bluetooth adapter --- the carrying case is extremely well designed * 5-button bluetooth mouse --- very few 5-button bluetooth mice are available; this was a significant purchasing point for...

The "forward" button is in a really awkward place -- nowhere near any of my fingers -- so it took considerable practice to...
Only works with Powerpoint - Avoid this if you're using Acrobat

Summary: This product seems nice, but funny that they NEVER mention that this product ONLY works with the POWERPOINT for the presentation control buttons on the bottom. I use LaTeX and Beamer to create my presentation, and I use Acrobat for the presentation.
