    Great little mouse

    Posted
    CJM

    I was skeptical about using a wireless mouse since my last experience was not so great but I took a chance and picked up this one up for my mini netbook. I was expecting not to like it and have trouble with it but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I DID like it. It's truely plug and play, works right out of the box (or should I say; clam shell pkg!) No problems with interference like my last one (different brand) at all. All I have to do is plug in the handy USD adapter and away I go. It's small and seems to fit my hand perfectly, it's very comfy and easy to move about. I also like the fact that when you store the mouse there's a handy space underneath made to hold the little USB adapter. You just press it into it's slot and when doing so it turns off the USB mouse at the same time. This makes it easy to store and no problems with a lost adapter. I bought the blue mouse to go with my sapphire blue netbook, but I noticed that they came in several colors. You should be able to find a color that suits your PC and your taste as well!

    Great mouse choice!

    This mouse is great! It's incredibly easy to set up, just insert the battery, plug in the USB receiver and go! The mouse worked great without skipping a beat, despite my using the armrest of my couch as the mousepad. It's a different color and makes my laptop feel a little more feminine. The mouse is really easy to "turn off", all you have to do is put the USB receiver in the bottom of the mouse and the battery turns off! The mouse is a hair small for me, but it is larger than most laptop mice I've used before. The scroll function is really smooth and accurate. Buttons come pre-programmed as a right-handed mouse with the option of changing them for left-handed use. Definately was worth the money. I wouldn't have chose another mouse!

    my first experience with buying a wireless mouse was a complete joke, it was some off the wall brand cheapy, didnt link with my p.c., wouldnt shut off when not in use, had to link it to my computer after every time I shut it off, this one is so different its not even funny, im using it on a dell inspiron desktop, with windows vista, it linked instantly, the buttons are a breeze, it even has a cool back button on it, the usb adapter is nice and large, no dinky dime size adapter, cant say how it will preform on a laptop, dont own one, but on a desktop its perfect, not alot smaller than a standard mouse, which is good for me, "big hands", defenitely a great purchase.

    ***MOUSE DID NOT WORK AT ALL****

    I was in the market for a new mouse coz I lost the usb transmitter of my old logitech wireless mouse. This mouse was going for $19.99 and the design looked appealing to me (loved the color), so I decided to purchase it, but... Right after opening the package, the mouse didn't work at all. I even changed and used a new battery, but still it didn't work. Rebooted my laptop at least 5 times without success in using this mouse. Then decided go to microsoft website to and install the "mouse" driver (i know iit's plug and play, but really desperate here) but to no avail. I will be on my way looking for another mouse. I would have given this a 5-star review, but the one that I got did not work at all.

    Mouse is great - Mobile Mouse 3000

    I really like this mouse its really good. But the only time I do not like it is when it stauls. When I use it the pointer just stauls and stop. Eventually, you have to push the reset button on the bottom. But the main resaon why I picked this mouse because there is no programming and I do not have time to wait for programming and reading instruction. I just want to plug in my USB and go. I would really recommend the mouse a 4yr. old child can do this. This how easy it is. The best ever. I just wish that Micro-soft can make a mouse that does not staul every now and then. But not only this mouse I have seen all mouses to be like that. Well maybe it could be of how long the person have had it.

    I was using an older optical mouse made by Belkin. You had to set it up by putting the tramitter in a clear line of site and punch two difficult buttons to contact mouse. The older one had a very hard time with copy and Paste as I use that much. This mouse surprised me----- the set up simply plug the thing in and it found the mouse. The performace of this to my older Belkin is much better with tasks such as copy and paste. The larger your hand the more it seems it is too small but you get use to it guick. It is so resonsive, I had to turn down the mouse settings to keep up with it. Amyway, it is an excellent choice and a good way to get rid of wires! PatchDog

    BEWARE

    DavidSam

    I bought this mouse when I bought my wife her laptop, its a pink sony so she wanted a pink mouse to go with it.... So this is the one I got, and two days later it didnt work, so I returned it... Second one lasted a week. So I returned it and bought a Logitech, a few bucks more, but worth it so far if I dont have to return it!!! I own a computer repair shop and took it to work to see if it was just the laptop, tried in about 12 computers and still didnt work... Tried it on XP, Vista, windows 7 and Linux, didnt work on any system.... Notthing what I would have expected from microsoft.... WOW GUYS

    good except for one thing

    I really love the color, feel, and size of the mouse. Its not too big and bulky, but not so small its hard to work with. The back button which lets you go to your previous web page is nice, but I wish there was both a back and forward button. Its very responsive, iv'e had no trouble clicking on anything, no delay. However, I just got this mouse literally earlier today and already it says the battery is low. The instructions say to snap the receiver into the bottom to turn it off, which I did, so I don't know why that happened unless it accidentally came off or something in my bag.

    Good basic mouse

    I bought this mouse around New Years. Just had to replace the battery for the first time today (April 26) with daily usage.. The low battery light had been flashing for a couple of days but I continued to use it until it stopped working. The single AA battery that this mouse uses tested at .86 volts, this thing really wrings out the most of of your battery's life. My only issue was that operation was spotty with the receiver plugged into the back of my computer that sits on the floor under my desk.. Moving the receiver to the front of the computer solved the problem.

    This is an awesome wireless mouse. It is so easy to use. Just plug the USB into the port and it works. No downloading programs or nothing! It is also small so its easy to take anywhere. It makes working on the computer so much faster. I have had it for quite some time now and it never seems to fail me. Yea it is kinda expensive for a wireless mouse, but in the end it is definitely worth it when it makes things so much easier. I would recommend it someone.

    WHAT I LIKE: I use this for my office so I dont need any high end features, just something reliable, wireless, simple and comfortable. Very easy to start using it, I just pressed the connection button and that was all, very simple and once you do that you can use it in all computers in seconds. WHAT I DONT LIKE: well only one thing, its that you have to unplug the usb receiver un clip it to the botton of the muse in order to turn it off. It should come with a switch or automatic shutoff. Overall works very good.

    Poor battery life

    Posted
    Jannetmari

    I have a cheapo no-name cordless mouse that has far better battery life than this one, at least five times better. Also, I think it is poor design to require that you remove the USB key (transmitter) from the computer and fit it into the receptacle on the bottom of the mouse in order to turn the mouse off. This is a hassle, and unnecessary wear and tear on the USB port. Look for a flip-close type, or one with a switch.

    The mouse worked well with my Acer Aspire One netbook it makes maneuvering around the screen much easier and you don't accidently open unwanted windows. The product has so far handled as advertised, I have only owned it for two months and it's great. The problem I do occasionally have is the connectivity sometimes goes down and in the instructions they don't address that. They should have troubleshooting section.

    No battery save feature

    goula

    This would be a great little mouse, but there is no battery save feature UNLESS you snap the usb reciever onto the mouse. I use this mouse for a desktop and don't want to keep plugging / unplugging this mouse. I've had the mouse for about 3 weeks and get about 5 days out of a battery. I would not recommend this mouse to many people. If you use it with a laptop and plug it up after each use, sure, go for it.

    Returned mouse within a week

    I returned this mouse after a week.....it kept losing the wireless connection even with the mouse one the other side of my laptop. I got tired of re-establishing the connection. The buttons were also hard to click, and I had to keep clicking multiple times to get anything to work. I would not recommend this mouse, and am going back to get a Logitech mouse instead.

    I got this mouse because it was pink and wireless. The wireless is perfect. I love it. So much easier than having a wire get in the way or get hung up on things. The pink is really very pretty. The only thing I dont like is that it is a little on the small side. It took me a little while to get used to the size of it.

    I had a mouse like this for my lap top at work. I wanted one just kike this and finally found iton best buy website> It was even on sale. Ver yhappy with it> I have no complaints. It comes in different colors which had no bearing on whether I would purchase it or not but I got the blue on. Its easy to set up and takes 2 AA batteries which is great.

    was ready to return it

    mercman2003

    when I first installed the mouse was erattic to try to point and the left click worked may 1 in 10 tries, but that was sometimes. I repackage to return. I decided to try once more before returning to store. I put a new battery in it(before I used the one supplied) connected it and it work's like it is supposed to. I am happy with it @ the moment.

    I bought this mouse based on all the reviews here but using it was a big disappointment. In order for the receiver and mouse to communicate they have to be line of sight. If I put the receiver on the left side and mouse on the right side of laptop, nothing worked. I even put the receiver on the back of Latop and got the same result - nothing.

    Have had this product for a few weeks now and have had absolutely no problems with this mouse. It has paused only once on me so no drama there. It has been such an improvement over my old wireless mouse! It is lighter because it uses only one battery so it was easier to move around. Very, very accurate. For the money, very much worth it!
