5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: This has been a real good mouse. very quick, responsive, game with it all the time.

For the price, this is awesome.

Cons: Battery life not as good as stated but this gets used all night an all weekend.

Not a negative for the price.

Other Thoughts: I have had vista, win 7, 8, 8.1 all pick this up, have unplugged it and plugged it back in and works in seconds.

Works with a new system that's never had a OS.

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: Got this as a cheap alternative to using my laptop's trackpad. Personally, any mouse no matter how cheap is better than a trackpad. And this one worked fine, nothing fancy and wasn't used for gaming. I did like the placement of the On/Off switch, I could flip it over and flick it on or off with one hand using my thumb versus other wireless mouses I've had where it takes both hands. Minor thing that I learned to appreciate.

However it just crapped out after a few months. One day it just wouldn't turn on even with fresh batteries.

Cons: Stopped working after 4 months.

Other Thoughts: It's shiny?

1 out of 5 eggsGear Head MP2850

Pros: No wires

Cons: This mouse is terrible. I have tried everything to get it to move consistently. When moving it, it will stop then start. I have tried: taking out bluetooth plug, turning mouse on and off, taking out batteries...nothing changes. If you move across a large desk, it will stop after a couple inches. If you continue to move, it will eventually start moving again for two inches. Frustrating.

1 out of 5 eggslasted a month

Pros: Cheap, wireless

Cons: Forward button and top button never worked. Batteries only lasted a month, even with turning it off when not in use. After the first couple of weeks with no real problems (except above), it would disconnect randomly. Connection issues got gradually worse until after a month, it was taking me more time to get it to connect than I was using it. I was forced to go back to my 6 year old mouse that was falling apart.

Other Thoughts: RMA-ing it would have cost more than I paid for it. I replaced it with a Logitech M705. Spend a few more bucks to get a better quality item.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay mouse

Pros: Great connection when the mouse is actually functioning.

Cons: On my first day of getting this mouse, the mouse connected fine. The second day the mouse had terrible initial connection. It is really difficult, for mine at least, to simply turn the mouse on and expect the mouse to connect to my computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: Nice size for a laptop. Five buttons is nice for the web, although you can't program them.

Cons: No instructions, didn't know what the center button was for until I read the previous review!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome quality and value

Pros: great value for $15
solid construction
smooth clicking buttons
adjustable resolution on the fly

Cons: roller is stiff, i'm guessing it will loosen up with use.
needs two AAA batteries

Other Thoughts: this is well built. i'm always dubious of anything built in china, but this is solid. button action is perfect; side buttons work great, and the mouse worked perfectly on windows 7. my pc sits under the desk, but there is no issue with signal strength. there is one pet peeve: this mouse will not wake up a sleeping pc. my ms and logitech mice will wake up a sleeping pc, but for some reason this one doesn't.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: - Nano Receiver so you plug it in and forget about it. No long protruding dongles.

- Underside of mouse has magnetic storage space for the nano receiver to keep it in place when it's not plugged in to help keep you from losing it.

- On/Off switch convenient for when the mouse is not on.

- Includes batteries

- 5 button mouse.

- Rubberized scroll wheel.

- Rubberized side areas that wrap around to the back of the mouse.

- Switchable resolution between 800/1600 dpi

- Works on Windows Vista/7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard (confirmed on wife's macbook pro)

Cons: To be honest, none that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful little product and cheaper compared to other 5 button nano-receiver mice. Can't beat the price! I didn't purchase on Newegg but this mouse serves its purpose well. Would purchase more if I needed more!
