"Whats the point?"on by choppahead
Pros Reciever stowes in base
Cons No range, needs smooth surface
Summary Whats the point of having a wireless mouse if you need to be within 2 -3 ft. of the reciever? Sort of defeat's the purpose, doesn't it? Also, with the rubberized base, it needs a smooth surface to ride on. Usless on couch, bed etc. Definately not an all terrain rodent. I exchanged it for a logitech V200 and couldnt be happier. With a 2.4 GHz reciever, I can literaly use it from another room (although I havent found a use for that yet). The reciever is also stowable in the base of the mouse, and it can be used on almost any surface. For exactly the same price, it's miles ahead of microsoft.
Pros Small size & USB adapter. Can carry it anywhere
Cons Absolutely no range. A little uncomfortable after a while.
Summary If you have a laptop and plan on using it strictly for traveling purposes, this could be the mouse for you. Otherwise, I'd look elsewhere before purchasing this model. Other than being very small and portable, this mouse have very few good things about it. Anything over 1.5 feet from the receiver and the receiver fails to recognize its movement. I don't see what the point is in it being wireless. After a couple of hours of use, the small size becomes very uncomfortable.
Pros Ergonomic design.
Cons Extremely short range. Mine has to be less than 2 ft. from the transmitter. Can't put computer on coffee table and mouse on couch.
Pros Convenient, works fine
Cons Battery life could be better
Summary Was a very good product overall
Pros Ease of use, usb storage in mouse
Cons No range as others have said.
Slow response time
Summary I would not buy again. In fact, I logged on here to find a review for a different mouse and CNET recommends this one. No thanks.
