    So, So Disappointing

    Posted
    Dolphinkist

    My experience has been similar to a couple other reviewers. I loved this mouse when I first got it: easy to connect/install, great size (not a big one, but not one of the micros that cramp my hands), has a little color, nice storage port for the USB wireless receiver, easy to use shutoff switch to save battery power, has never dropped the wireless connection, and only uses ONE AA battery with what seems to be great battery life. However, the squeaking, sticking, and missing.... Mine also started having problems after about 2 weeks. The left click started sticking at first. I had not spilled on it, nothing had gotten into the mouse, and I am not one of those pounders (and I've never had this problem with any mouse I have used in the past). I worked with it and it stopped sticking. But that's when the horrible grating squeaking started. Every time I use the left click...ugh! It also started missing (where it wouldn't take the first click and I'd have to click again), although it doesn't happen often. I'd like to find something like this one again (same connection reliability, size, ease), but without the left click issues.

    Fantastic for the price

    Was on sale for $4.99 - not the $14.99 on the website. While listed as a 'mobile' mouse, it works great for the desktop. Don't mount the transceiver in one of the rear USB ports or the usable distance is severely limited - like 3 feet. I put it in a USB hub on top of the PC and the range increased to clear across the room. (Specs say up to 33 feet.) The blue LED is a nice change from the traditional red color of my wired mouse. Was also able to keep the wired mouse connected - both work at same time. Haven't had it long enough to test battery life, but it says up to 8 months on one AA battery. Installation was a breeze, but internet is necessary to download the MS Intellipoint software. Scroll wheel clicks are more noticeable scrolling up than down. Scroll button (by default) pops up Task Switcher which is convenient, but can be easily modified by the software.Tracks precisely on almost anything, except glass, etc.

    AVOID!!! Got problem with LEFT key

    Posted

    This mouse is GREAT for all aspect, I would like to rate it for 10 stars. BUT when it comes to about a week, the left click just got sticking like many other reviewers. I first thought it is some temp problem BUT after another 2 days the left click become a nightmare. It is impossible for me to perform double click just because the sticking click button. I tried to find a replacement in the local Best Buy but no stock for it. I guess this problem won't be a common one as this mouse got a great feedback on the other color. So my suggestion is avoid this color and try some else. This is best mouse I had ever used, if not the left click problem :'(

    BlueTrack Technology = A+

    Posted

    I needed a mouse for fine detail graphics work when away from my desktop, while using my laptop. The BlueTrack technology allows me to get that fine movement on almost every surface (save clear glass). I was working in my hotel room while in bed using the mouse on the uneven sheets with no problem. I would recommend getting a mouse with this technology. This specifc mouse provides that plus with the wireless feature, ensures there is no cord to get tangled up in and the wireless receiver can be stored right in the mouse so it wont get lost.

    Great wireless mouse

    I purchased this mouse a few weeks ago because I was looking for a wireless mouse that I can use/switch between my work laptop (pc) and my personal laptop (mac). So I when I saw this mouse on sale for a little over $12 I purchased 2 of them (1 for me and 1 for my daughter). This mouse is sooooooooo great. I use it on the couch, table, leg, etc. It is so fast that now any other mouse seems slow. I am so pleased with this purchase.

    This mouse is, by far, the best value for a wireless mouse! I just purchased my second 3500 mouse to replace a much more expensive Microsoft 6000 mouse. That mouse just won't work on a regular basis, despite all my troubleshooting efforts. Plus, that mouse was more difficult to install. This mouse is simple and loads itself in about 60 seconds. LOVE it!

    Works on fabric, wood, glass; tiny USB receiver

    The only downside to this mouse is that it may not be durable enough for an angry gamer--my son borrowed it and now the left mouse button has an odd click feel to it compared to brand new. It still works, mind you, but I'm questioning the long-term durability for aggressive use. On the other hand, the fact that it takes an AA battery, and that it lasts so long is a real plus--as is the positive on-off functionality.

    We have been struggling with mouse issues with our desk top for a LONG time, we've tried a wire mouse, a wireless, etc. All have been a pain. This one is a breeze! You just plug in the wireless USB and the mouse works! Also it's sensitive and not jumpy!!! I would suggest this mouse to anyone with a desktop OR laptop!!! Plus the design is cute too :)

    Loved it first 2 weeks; not now

    Have had this mouse for 2 weeks, loved it until yesterday. The left click button has developed an annoying squeak and is becoming increasingly sluggish in feel and function. I'm really disappointed, because I loved the ease of installation, the design and comfort, and the wireless feature. Will be exploring my options for return or replacement.

    So far so good

    Product works well. I have used it at home and at work. Just an FYI though, when I used it at work I found the mouse not to be a smooth and a little choppy. I believe that to be so because my pc is on the floor so there is a desk between the transmitter and the mouse. If the transmitter has no interference with the mouse, the movement on the screen is better.

    Works great but a little small

    Posted
    Sebring

    It didn't look this small in the pics but I have larger than average hands so most mice seem too small to me anyway. It works great though even without a mouse pad and you can just leave the receiver in your laptop. The mouse has a power switch on the bottom to make the battery last longer. I also got it on sale for 10 bucks so it's hard to complain.

    Great price, easy to use, and good warranty

    I have had the mouse for a few weeks now and wanted to wait to give my review of it. It easy to use basically installs itself, it comes with a year warranty from Microsoft, and I love the blue light! The one draw back is the ugly green color but I guess that's why I got it for $9.99 while other stores were selling it for $30+ :)

    Great Mouse for a great price

    This mouse is excellent. The best part about it to me is the fact that one single battery lasts so long. I received my mouse about 2-3 months ago and the same battery has been used the entire time. The design is sleek and beautiful and the buttons don't click too loudly.

    Mouse not worth it

    StarFruit

    This mouse has overall flaws in the design that cause the right mouse button to start to squeak loudly everytime you click after you've used the item for a while. Thankfully, I managed to find this out before the 14 day return policy had passed. Don't buy this mouse even when it is on sale.

    My only complaint with this mouse is the poor battery life. They advertise that this mouse has very good/long battery life but that's not the case with the one I purchased. I recently purchased a Logitech M215 to replace this mouse.

    Easy to Use Mouse

    I just bought another one of these as I really like this mouse. It has a shut off button so you can save the battery life. I've tried a lot of brands over the years and think this one is the best so far. No complaints!

    Left button squeaks and sometimes does not respond. This is the second device in four weeks that had the same problem. I will also be returning this item and trying another brand.
