Cruise the web in style with the Road Mice mouse. It comes in the authentic shape of a miniature sports car, and offers an 800-dpi resolution for enhanced accuracy and precision movement. It is a must-have for car enthusiasts and collectors.
This review is from: Road Mice Mustang HP-11FDMGYXK Yellow With Black Stripes 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 800 dpi Mouse
Pros: Great idea, beautiful looking mouse.
Cons: Did not work right from the start. Lights worked, but could not get mouse to be recognized by computer. Also, the spring-shaped battery contact was bent downwards, causing the battery to keep popping out. Tried connecting to all different computers running, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Ubuntu, Mandriva, MAC, and even an android tablet. They all recognized the dongle, and windows device manager saw it as a Microsoft mouse, but the cursor would not move. Seemed like a pairing issue between mouse and dongle, but all attempts to "re-learn" the pairing per their instructions failed. Also the pairing instructions sent with the mouse showed a completely different procedure than the instructions on their website for the same thing. Tried contacting the company numerous times to resolve this, and was ignored repeatedly. Eventually I was able to get a response, and they decided to send me out a replacement dongle, which took over a month to arrive. When I got the new dongle, it was the same story. It was at this point that I just cut my losses. It was obvious at this point, that the mouse itself was indeed defective, but rather than try to deal with their horrendous customer service, and to pay to ship back a product that never worked to begin with, I just ate the $60-70 loss.
Other Thoughts: This mouse was a gift from my wife (I actually got the Orange Camaro version), which makes me all the more upset. She was so excited to give it to me, and I couldn't wait to start using it, but that never happened. Any idea how it feels to tell your wife that the $70 computer mouse she got you, and was all proud to show you doesn't work, and that the company isn't willing to do anything about it? It's depressing. The quality control must be non-existent or they were sleeping when my mouse was made, and their customer service is horrible. Multiple emails and phone calls with message left, very few responses, and the lady I dealt with wasn't the most helpful. She seemed annoyed by the fact that I was even calling about the problem. Horrible, horrible customer service.
