    This is a great mouse for the price. My only complaint is that the USB receiver is a bit tricky to get in and out of the storage slot under the battery cover, but it's not too bad.

    This mouse works great on just about any surface. The battery cover could be made to be easier to remove and install.

    Great mouse that has all the necessities. Only complaints are that it's a little small and the door for the battery compartment is a little hard to remove.

    Beats having to rely on the touchpad, and is small for on-the-go convenience. The Bluetooth adaptor that stores in the battery compartment is difficult to remove without removing the battery each time.

    Mouse has a higher rise than most; not very comfortable fit for my hand, though for my husband's larger hand, it works. Battery cover keeps falling off. Doesn't work on all surfaces like my Logitech did.

    Size is on the smaller side. Storing the USB connector is a bit annoying where you have to pull the battery cover off, push it in then put the cover back on. I've worked with mice where you simply slot in the connector after use and that is much easier to use.

    Small, not a 'full size' mouse. Good to throw in your bag with laptop. Storage for receiver is inside battery compartment, pain in the rear. Works fine, good value.

    Good style, fits nicely in my hand. Nearly instantaneous plug and play installation. Great range and response. Only complaints are the battery cover is a bit difficult to open and the power switch is recessed and can be a bit tricky to operate if you have big fingers.

    First off, let me state that I got this mouse for $8.99 on sale. It's much more reliable than the far more expensive Microsoft mouse it replaced, which was sensitive to interference from my laptop's charger. The HP is completely unaffected. I like the tiny USB adapter, but storing it in the battery compartment is inconvenient and probably not the most durable solution. It can also be difficult to get it out with the battery in place. Overall, I'm very pleased with it.

    It was on sale so I tried it out. It works exactly like a mouse should work. I have been using it for a couple weeks now and it always works just fine. The only problem I have had with it was that I dropped it on the floor one afternoon (wood floor) and the battery cover popped off and the left mouse button region became dislodged. I simply put the cover back on and pushed the button region back into place. There was no adverse effect from it BUT I do not expect a battery cover to pop off like that when dropped from a height of about 20 inches onto a wood floor. That, to me, is a bit of a flaw. Having said that, I have been pretty happy with the overall performance of the mouse.

    Good mouse but cheaply made

    The mouse is pure plug-n-play - both Windows 7 and Windows 8 detected it out of the box. The package itself was very small, open the battery compartment at the bottom, take out the small receiver and put it into the USB port, power the mouse using a standard AA battery (not included in the package) and you are ready to go. Pros: 1. Perfect size to fit into the palm comfortably 2. Pointing precision is spot on, good resolution 3. The click wheel and button clicks are spot on Cons: 1. Its made cheaply - the plastic quality is cheap and it shows 2. The battery compartment is flimsy 3. The click-wheel is rubbery and the overall build quality is cheaper than what one would expect. 4. Got it in the deal of the day, at regular price it is not worth the price considering the cheap plastics it is made of.

    This mouse is great. There's not much to say. I got it on super sale (deal of the day). It's black and sleek so it looks really good. It works right away (after the initial searching for hardware or whatever) and effortlessly. The on/off switch sticks out JUST enough to switch it easily. I use it with my Toshiba laptop and it ALWAYS works (unlike my previous mouse). As for the battery compartment and leaving a small space inside to store the usb-piece... ummmm... it's too cumbersome for usb-piece storage. The battery compartment does not open easily enough to be bothered with it. Overall, great mouse.

    It isn't the best mouse but usable for what you pay for. This is a simple scroll mouse without all the extra feature you may only use once in a while. For some, they might find it a little bit on the light side compare to other mice. It is a laptop mouse for travel, so it'll be small for most people. Thinks I wish it has: 1. An eject button for the usb receiver. It is very hard to get it object of the battery compartment. 2. The top surface should be more durable. I have scratches on it from being in my bag. 3. Similar to 2, it would be nice to have a bag to protect it while in my bag.
