Please note: This review is for the pink version, which performed much, much better (using it now) than the black one I bought from another seller who crammed it unboxed into a tiny creased up jiffy bag. I also reviewed that mouse.
This was sent in a box. Nice little mouse. I bought it for my daughter to use with her school netbook a few weeks back and it's still going strong. I often buy cheap little mice and I'm usually lucky with them. This one is no exception. It installs easily and looks cute...girls love pink you know. I also bought another cheap mouse at the same time and that gave up very soon after first use. I've reviewed that too if you're shopping around. I've actually owned a small red Microsoft Compact Optical Mouse 500 for ages now...and I'm super pleased with that. I always buy wired optical mice, as I keep losing them if they're wireless. This little pink mouse is fairly small, but we're used to this size. If you prefer a large one...this one may not be the one for you.
