Summary: In case you don't notice it on the picture, this mouse also does not have a back or forward button as most mice do.
Pros: This mouse works fine as any normal portable optical mouse. And it looks nice.
Cons: The description for this mouse says it has a programmable roller wheel. IT DOES NOT. I found this mouse on two other sites including Verbatim. All sites say this has a programmable roller. I called Verbatim tech support and they say it is not a programmable mouse.
Summary: First of all, I bought this because it was supposed to work for the Kindle Fire. My mistake apparently, because it only works with the Kindle Fire HD, so I gave it to my wife. generally, it is pretty small even for her small hands, but that's the trade-off for portability.
Summary: This is an update to a previous review of mine. I guess the smaller they make these things, the more prone they are to failure. Perhaps I'll exercise my warranty option with Verbatim, but if shipping is more than half the original cost of the mouse, I'll just have fun and nuke it in an old...
Pros: Inexpensive, has on/off switch, mini USB dongle.
Cons: Scroll wheel has become unreliable after 6 weeks of moderate use. When scrolling through a web page, the screen will jump in the opposite direction of the wheel scroll every page or so. Have verified this on 2 different laptops and 2 different desktops, using different browsers. Even happens in W...
Excerpt: I don't use the mouse and don't plan to do so. It's cheap quality and lacks back/forward buttons. I was looking for something Mac-like that would take up less space on my desk and allow me to align my keyboard properly (B in the center).
Summary: Seems to be working fine, it would be helpful if it had some indicator lights. Really, without that you'd need to be a typing expert to figure out whether you have caps lock on or off. Or just a little necessary chart in the system tray blocking out other important info.
Looks cheap; worked out of the box with Crunchbang Linux
13 July 2011
Summary: Mouse looks like cheap plastic and attracts fingerprints. It comes with free Energizer batteries and has a tiny usb receiver. Although it worked right out of the box with Debian-based Crunchbang Linux (no drivers necessary) touch gestures included, I can't stand how cheap it looks and feels.
