2.0 out of 5 stars
Not great, works as a mouse, plenty of problems though, 5 Jun 2009
I received the mouse within two days of when I ordered it, which was a nice surprise as they said it would take around 4 working days to reach me. However, it says on the box it includes the mouse, usb receiver, 2 x AAA batteries and an instruction manual; I opened it up - no batteries - no manual. I've kept it anyway as there's no point wasting money on postage sending it back, but something to be aware of before you buy.
One good thing, before going deep into the problems is that the usb stick does fit neatly into the back of the mouse, without sticking out. Then again, finding how to release it again is a task in itself - I eventually worked out you push down the silver plate on the top of the mouse.
Second problem - batteries. It says on the box:
'Batteery Cover Release Button
Changing batteries has never been so easy.with one simple touch of release button the battery cover is released,making it easy to change the batteries'
...and yes, the spelling and punctuation mistakes I put in there are on the box! Besides being written very poorly, putting me off the company for being unprofessional anyway, the statement they tried to make is a load of rubbish. I have never had a product that has a battery compartment harder to access! For those of you still trying to get in, press the button on the bottom very hard, then pull the cover (on the top, behind the buttons) backwards. The cover is very stiff so don't be afraid to use force.
Finally, after not touching it for around 15 seconds, it starts madly flashing at you - very off-putting when you're trying to work!
Overall, it works as a mouse (so far) but if you want a mouse that's quick and easy to set up, is made by a professional business, comes with everything it says it comes with and doesn't try to distract you when it wants attention, spend a little more and go for a trustworthy brand!
- Update for two days later - it's stopped working already! This leaves nothing good to say about this mouse, don't even consider it, if i could write the review again, it would be one star.
