Summary: I got this mouse because I got fed up with my wireless mouse having to be "paired" every time I used it and running out of charge at awkward times. This mouse is perfect for me. The cable is thin enough not to get in the way and being retractable can be set to a comfortable length. When fully retracted the usb plug sits nicely under a cover in the mouse making it ideal for transporting.
Rolls Royce portable mouse that ticks ALL the boxes

Summary: Whenever I'm out and about with my portable PC, I use the fiddly touch-pad as little as possible so that explains why I carry a portable mouse in my bag. Now I've served quite an apprenticeship in mice; I've bought tiny ones that pack away inside a matchbox, clip-on ones with a thumb-ball, analogue ball-types (as against optical versions), wireless types, a roller ball type that you slipped over a finger and rolled with your thumb and an extra large mouse that had so...
Summary: After the purchase of my first laptop,being used to a mouse with my P.C.,i found it a little strange not using one. Hence the purchase of the retractable mini mouse,this was a good move as it speeded up the operations,it works very well and has given me no problems, would certainly recomend to any one.
Summary: This was a good buy and is very user friendly. Sadly, I must have pulled the cord out a fraction too far and it will not retract now which is such a shame. There is no button to press so presumably to make it retract you are supposed to simply pull it slightly but doing that on mine has no effect. Maddeningly, I notice it is now half the price I paid so am tempted to order another and be careful this time.
Summary: I find it comfortable to use and it works well. The retractable cord stops it getting tangled with the rest of the wiring while my laptop is being carried around. The lightweight cable makes it smooth and easy to use and it is a lot lighter than a wireless mouse because there are no batteries.
Summary: I bought this mouse for use with a netbook. Smaller than a standard mouse, but still comfortable to use. Complete retraction of the USB cable makes it compact for packing away. A good purchase for my needs.
Summary: Full score for having been well thought out and realised. The cable retracts neatly into its own housing in the mouse so very neat! Good positive action on the buttons and the wheel is easy to use. Tracks well too. A little small in the hand but it is meant as a portable mouse so go figure. I do not have a problem with the sizing of it but I do not have the biggest hands in the world.
