"POS mouse. The scroll wheel does not work at all."
22 October 2011
Pros: cheap thats it
Cons: When you scroll through pages, it constantly jerks up and down and all around... I have to click and drag the scroll bar, its so bad. I have found many many people complain about this same problem... It happens to everyone who buys this mouse, it was mism
Summary: I thought this was going to have a snap in receiver that would be size of flash drive or smaller. Instead, it arrived with a receiver that is bigger than a wired mouse. Completely inappropriate for laptop use and I want to throw it directly into the trash. It would work for a desktop. Gigantic receiver/transmitter doesn't appear anywhere on the packaging or product description so this was a very negative surprise. Mouse too big also and doesn't turn off.
Pros: Performs the general mouse functions correctly most of the time
Cons: The mouse zooms in (zoom window pops up) occasionally with no apparent way to turn it off. There is no extra button to bring up a zoom window or turn it off. Microsoft has no documentation and wants $35 an hour to look at the problem.
Excerpt: I admit installing the software and the batteries was easy enough, but it is using the mouse where the real problems are. Give me a wired mouse any day and I will happily use it. This wireless stuff is just a headache, a piece of junk. I feel sorry for anyone who has to use one. Maybe they all are not like this: I don’t know. But this one is. I had to download the software from a website. I rate this product a “1” but I would give it a zero if I could!
Summary: Wanted a wireless for my laptop. Works great.I didn't realize that you still have to have an adapter plugged in the back of the laptop so it can be wireless. But I don't see it and it's out of the way.
