This is an overall great mouse. It looks great as a mouse. The battery life is immense with an 18-month time period. Although of course, battery brands/types vary. The auto switch off helps so much to allow this. On a review I read that the time it takes to switch back on after switching off was a few seconds, however, I found it's almost instantaneous after I click the left mouse button, moving the mouse doesn't work.
The Back and Forward buttons on the side are a great help as well, since the Back button is the bottom one which is helpful since I use Back a lot more often than I use Forward in a web browser. Or anything for that matter, including Windows Explorer etc. The middle mouse button has also a nice texture on it which is sort of like a grip, which I suspect should last a long time. Under the Back/Forward button is a thumb rest which is a nice addition to an overall great mouse.
The button which changes the DPI is not really needed for me since I have been using a Mouse which doesn't use this for a long time, so I am accustomed to the normal DPI. But I am sure anyone can get used to the increased speed and precision that can be drawn from having an increased DPI.
To close, I feel this is a great product and I would extremely recommend anyone should pick this mouse up. This is based on;
- Price (£9.99)
- Alterable DPI
- Long Battery Life
- Wireless (Although I have seen people say a Wireless Mouse isn't as responsive as a Wired Mouse, I don't know weather I notice that it's the Mouses fault or my Computers fault when I am games.)
