    Check your expectations- totally passable!

    This, for the price, is a fantastic mouse. Keep your expectations in check and you'll be pleasantly surprised! Is this an Apple Magicmouse? No. Is this a super cheap alternative that pairs easily to wireless device for convenient UI interaction? TOTALLY. I'm using this on a Google Pixelbook to navigate easily from a desk and I've been delighted with it's size (easily portable- throw it in your laptop bag and you're good to go), it's form factor, and it's price point. It doesn't feel overly cheap despite the removable top portion being entirely one piece plastic. The top portion lifts off for your batteries (included, btw), while the bottom piece (also plastic) has really nice mouse sliding pads that feel responsive and smooth on a mousepad. The mouse tracks reasonably well and I've had no misclicks. There's a single pairing button on the bottom that you need to hold in to initiate pairing mode as well as a sliding switch to turn the mouse on and off. The mouse wheel is the achilles heel of this device. It is awkwardly shaped, wonky as it clicks through the scroll motion, and is a little slow. Beyond that- I have NO problem recommending this to anybody looking for a cheap Magicmouse lookalike. Pick one up and try for yourself. I think it's tremendous value.

    A little latency can be a frustrating distraction

    I've used wireless mice (on my Wacom tablet) and USB versions for both Macs and PCs. The opportunity (the price was right) to enter the Bluetooth market was attractive. PROS Off the top, it is full-sized and very low profile with EXCELLENT action on both buttons. The wheel click is good and not easily clicked by accident. Connecting to Bluetooth is simple and the device is easily found and connected. CONS Very light-weight which means it can kinda "vanish" in your hand. It has an annoyingly infrequent habit of loosing the connection from time to time but mostly you'll notice a latency that makes you move the mouse to see if it's still responding when all you should have done was pause your mouse movement. Conclusion Inexpensive does not always mean cheap and this mouse is a good deal for those struggling with their vanishing USB ports, but if you are used to a wired mouse or a pad-based (like Wacom's) the latency and weight is going to feel a little cheap. Tested on Lenovo Yoga 2 Ultrabook and Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

    Below expectations

    Looks sleek and comparable to the pricier mice, but kind of wondering if I should have footed the few extra dollars to pay for better quality. First off, I was not aware this was an Open-Box purchase, and no where did it indicate that it was when I was purchasing directly from the Best Buy website. Needless to say, when I received it in it's banged up condition, I was pretty upset. It's so slim, even for a woman, that prolonged use gives me hand cramps. Additionally, I'm not sure if it's a compatibility issue, but even though the Bluetooth on my Surface Pro is paired with the mouse, the sensor keeps losing signal. I've had to delete and re-install the device just to keep using it.

    Great Alternative for the Apple Magi Mouse

    I had been needing to replace my magic mouse for my iMac as it had been giving me problems but I didn't want to pay the $80 for the apple one. I happened to see this at BestBuy while browsing and picked it up to try it out with the intentions of returning it if it didn't meet expectations. This mouse has well surpassed any expectation I had. Some reviewers say it feels flimsy and like it's going to break. Have any of you held an apple mouse? The Insignia mouse feels much more solid and durable to me, plus the design to allow the top to come off to replace batteries is better than Apple's. Overall I enjoy this mouse better than the apple magic mouse and WAY better than the wired mouse that they sell. It doesn't have the multitouch features but I for one find the multi-touch to get in the way more often than I actually use it. This track wheel on this mouse scrolls up and down and can do side-scrolling when track wheel is pressed.

    Cheaper Alternative

    Picked this lil guy up in-store, mainly as it was sitting next to the Logitech Ultrathin, which they didn't have in stock for Macs. *Sadface* It's pretty good for what it is - a cheaper alternative to the magic mouse with similar aesthetic appeal, however a bit more on the 'flimsy' side. Connected to my Macbook Pro fairly easily, and only takes about a second to be detected upon booting up. The scroll wheel isn't terribly amazing, but since I'm using it in addition to my touchpad it's not a huge deal; probably wouldn't recommend it as being the sole method for navigating yer UI.

    Not bad for a cheap blutooth mouse

    Not bad for a cheap blutooth mouse, but considering that it is pretty obviously attempting to look like an apple magic mouse it is invariably going to be compared to one. And in this comparison the insignia comes out far on the losing end of the battle. Movement is smooth, batteries are replaceable, it clicks when I want it to, but the scroll wheel is pretty much useless, and multi touch is non existent. Depending on how much of a sale this item is on it may or not be worth it. I would not pay $40 though.

    not that great at all

    The mouse is clunky. Right handed users will constantly hear a clicking noise, but no action takes place. You have to click more than once a lot to use this mouse. It was easy to install on a Win10 OS, however using the mouse causes you to have to do more work than using other mice. A lot of times you feel like you are using the left click function only to have the right click option pop up. After two days of using this mouse I am left frustrated and will be returning it.

    Make the most of your computing with this Insignia slim wireless mouse, which features an ultra-slender silhouette without skimping on function. Bluetooth connectivity on this mouse eliminates the tangle of cables, and three-button function gives you complete control. This Insignia slim wireless mouse works with both Apple and Windows computers for versatility.

    I was looking for an alternative option to Apple’s Magic Mouse and was glad that I found this one. The Bluetooth was easy to setup. The only complaint I have is that the on/off switch was colored the opposite way with red for “on” and green for “off”. If you use the words as your guide, you’ll be fine. It is a much lighter weight material than the apple mouse which could either be good/bad for people.

    Great substitute for the Apple mouse

    I use this mouse with my Macbook Pro and I love the low profile and fast tracking. It minimizes the amount that I have to move my hand while working. Note: The batteries last for about 5-6 months and I use the mouse 8 hours/day, 5 days/week. When the batteries start to die, the bluetooth connection becomes unreliable. That's when you know it's time to change them out.

    I would highly recommend this BT mouse. It is very streamlined, which is great for travel. Also, the scrolling wheel is super quiet and responsive. The only reason I did not give this item 5 stars is because occasionally it becomes unresponsive while I have used it on my lap desk. When that happens all I do is pick it up and place it back down and the issue is instantly resolved.

    Lightweight and saves space with slim design

    Lightweight and the slim profile takes up minimal space. The laser sensor is also a plus, especially if your desktop has a glass surface. Because of it's slim profile though, it might feel a little awkward if you have bigger hands. Also, the top feels a little clunky so take care not to drop the mouse; the front is held in by clips and the back is held down via magnets.

    This mouse is an excellent product. It works perfectly with my MacBook Pro (2018, 4 Thunderbolt 3 Ports). It was important to me that it worked via Bluetooth directly with my MacBook (no usb receiver) because of the Thunderbolt 3 ports and my desire to minimize the number of dongles.

    I have a Samsung Chromebook Plus, and the mousepad is very difficult to use, so this mouse makes it all simpler. It's great because it's Bluetooth with no wires. It's also great because it's hard to find mouses that are compatible with Chromebooks, or anything in general, but this works great with it and I love it soooo much!

    Installed, connected, worked. Issue with it is it disconnects every-time computer goes to sleep and the only way to get it back is to uninstall it and reinstall it. My computer is a new Dell w/ Win10. I I researched the issue but no suggestions corrected the problem. It may work better on a MAC. I returned it.

    Great battery life. I fell asleep one night doing homework and left the mouse on all night and I woke up In the morning and it was still on. Then I continued to use it all week and it still hasn’t died. Very sleek design and easy connection settings.

    It connected super fast and only loses connection is not used for an extended period of time. The only thing i dont love about it is that the sides are not smooth- they are a bit sharp in your palm. Overall i would recommend for the price.

    I got this for my wife. I didn’t want to spend the money on the Apple mouse because she doesn’t use her MacBook daily. This is a great option. It connect easily and works great. It is very compact and is a stylish compliment to any computer.

    This bluetooth mouse status connected to both mac and pc, even after restarts/sleep mode. It's also a very accurate pointer. I don't love the scroll wheel, but it's not a deal breaker for me. Overall this mouse works great and is half the price of the magic mouse!
