Good mouse for extended use
on 15 October 2013
I bought this mouse after discovering the M185 mouse supplied with the MK270 set is a mini one, and too small for extended daily use.
This mouse is 'full size', a good 12cm long and fills my medium male hands nicely. It takes 2 AA batteries, which lend it a nice weight. I've read you can use it with just one battery, which might help if you find it too heavy. Personally, I think a heavier mouse is easier to control.
The mouse is nicely contoured, and I find my thumb and little finger rest nicely on recessed rubber areas.
The side buttons are carefully positioned above your thumb (right handed users) so you won't hit them by accident - a problem I've had with small mice. There is also a useful notch between the side buttons so you can feel which one you're pressing.
The wheel is nicely weighted, neither too stiff or loose, with a nice grippy rubber surface. The left and right movement is perfectly weighted too, no chance of doing it by accident, but easy to do when you want to.
It worked fine with my existing unifying receiver, although you need to use the Setpoint software initially to detect and register it with the receiver. The spare receiver just lives inside the special hole in the battery compartment.
Really, I'd like to give it 4.5 stars, as I feel it's a little over-priced, but 5 stars it is.
