A very adequate wireless mouse
on 24 September 2011
I bought this product primarily for my new laptop computer. Having previously used Windows XP and its fore-runners on my desktop machine, I quickly became very irritated by the lack of precision, speed and accuracy of the touchpad device on the laptop. I also dislike Windows 7's assumption that, when I cross over a utility/program with the touch device cursor, I wish to open it. I alone require to be the arbiter of that decision. Since I have used this mouse, the previous problem is now resolved.
The product itself is well designed and very good value. The scroll wheel is much more precise in response than the one on the wired mouse attached to my desktop machine. The nano USB receiver is sufficiently small to be completely unobtrusive, and I find the page back / page forward buttons more convenient than having to go to the arrows at the top left of the browser. As I am ambidextrous, I have no problems at all with the layout of the mouse controls.
As for the battery life, which I have noticed that other reviews make comment upon, I would state that the original supplied batteries did not last very long. However, I then replaced these with Lloytron rechargeable batteries, which have already lasted more than twice as long as the originals, and are still going strong. I make a habit of switching off the mouse each time I finish using it.
My overall opinion, considering all the factors I have mentioned, is that this is a very good product.
