    Very good bluetooth mouse ..

    Posted

    This mouset is smaller than most mice, but fits nicely in hand, considering that I have big hands. It is very responsive and the back button and mouse wheel complement its functionality. The battery indicator is another great plus, at least you can get a warning when you are running low; And the power switch is also great for saving energy. To sum up, Pros: - Excellent Microsoft design - Great price - Very responsive - Great battery life - Instant pairing with bluetooth enabled PC's - Back button functionality (Not Supported for Mac) - Power switch - It comes with a nice carry-bag. Cons: - It has dropped the connection about 5 or 6 times during the time I have been using it, but it reconnects after turning on and off again. - No forward button. - Sometimes too responsive, depending on the surface you use it on. I fixed this by tweaking the mouse sensitivity on the Windows mouse settings.

    Not so great

    I bought one of these and within two weeks I had to return it because the wheel stopped working. The second one worked ok for a while before the power switch on the back started sticking and I had to dismantle the mouse to reposition it. Periodically it would have very jerky movement, as if the computer was really bogged down. Sometimes it would start working if I reconnected, other times I would have to reboot. I tried the newest drivers from Microsoft, but no luck. This mouse now sits in my drawer and I use my ancient Logitech one instead.

    This mouse was a steal at $35 in the store. It is still worth th $50 compared to similar Bluetooth laser mice. Its compact, which is nice, but the feel isnt as nice as other non-bluetooth wireless mice. If you dont need to go further than 3-4 feet, I suggest just getting a regular microsoft wireless mouse. They feel better in teh hand and are better on battery life. I tested this and it did 30 feet no problem. Great if you plan to use it on a big tv or something. Overall, great buy!

    Nice but not quite perfect

    I really like the mouse, it fits well in the hand for a small mouse and the tracking is very good. Even the scroll wheel works well. The only beef I have with it is that the battery life is much shorter than the Logitech VX Nano that I have. No problem though, I have this mouse in my Laptop bag for on the go and the Nano at home on my desk with the receiver plugged into a hub. If this mouse had the insanely long battery life of the Logitech it would be perfect.

    Works Awesome

    I bought this as an alternative to the touchpad mouse on my laptop. The ease of setup was great, press one button on the bottom of the mouse and after it made the synch with bluetooth, it worked as advertised. One reviewer stated it would not wake up the computer from the screensaver, but it does wake mine up. The mouse seems to go into a sleep mode if you don't use it for a few minutes but a little wiggle and it wakes right up.

    This mouse is easy to pair with bluetooth enabled computer. It works great. Ocassionaly you have to re-pair it. However, the setup is normally painless. The mouse comes with a nice carrying pouch. I highly recommend it. The back button is handy. Unlike USB mouses, there are no cables or dongles sticking out of my laptop, which can be easily broken. In a sense you have a free usb port when ytou use bluetooth mouse.

    Great Mouse

    So I picked up this Mouse because I bought a Macbook Pro an I needed an additional mouse to make it easier to game and work on my videos. I love the third button that it has, I have it programed to go with Spaces for the ultimate multitasking freedom. One problem that I have with it is that the scrolling wheel is a bit loud, other than that I have no problems with it.

    Great Mouse, Until Now...

    great device, love the bluetooth connectivity; no dongle hassle. Well, has been good until recently, this might be a unique situation but my scroll wheel just completely broke, its loose as if the teeth of wheel have been filed down. =/ By the feedback of previous reviewers my situation is pretty rare, just a forewarning. otherwise, good luck with you and yours.

    I wanted to buy a wireless mouse for my Macbook. I was debating between a laser usb wireless or a bluetooth wireless. I must say go Bluetooth. This mouse has no delay and no lag and has a long battery life(if you turn it off after you are done using it). I use it to play video games and it is very precise. I absolutely love it.

    I have seen people posting that they are having connection issues, but so far, I have had no issues like that. The mouse is easy to set up and great to use. No connection issues so far and I am happy with this purchase. Bought this when it was on sale so it was a great buy. Would buy this for full price.

    This mouse was easy to set up. I can use it on all types of surfaces to include the bed. It has a back button. It was also designed with an off switch so you can save on the battery life.

    Works well with Mac (haven't tried to use the additional button). Good bluetooth mouse for the price.
