Pros: None

Cons: Which should i write here. Bad connection, unergonomic. Slow.. Stops working randomly.. Bad bad bad.

Overall Review: After smashing this thing on the wall, I switched to Logitec M series (any will do). Since then, I'm not using anything..

Worked well until I dropped it down concrete staircase... 11/15/2012 3:26:37 PM

Pros: Its wireless and cheap.

Cons: Because its wireless and cheap, a lot of other people at my school happen to have the same mouse. At my school we are required to work together in tight groups, less than 2 feet apart from each other, and the interference between the mice was to much for them to operate. If i moved the mouse more than 8 inches from the receiver than i would loose the signal. At home away from other mice though it works perfectly for its price.

Also, because of its small size, clicking it the buttons moved the whole mouse around, and sometimes i could accidentally end up dragging files into other folders when i double clicked to open them. Laugh now, but you will do it too. What i learned from this is that I prefer full length mice because its easier to brace them in your hand when you click the buttons.

Overall Review: Cheap wireless mouse works good. Interference wont be a problem for most people probably. Also, dont drop it down a concrete stairs, it will not survive. I had to buy a new mouse, but i ended up getting a wired mouse just to avoid any interference from other mice.

Decent Mouse 4/18/2012 8:39:49 AM

Comments: I kind of fixed the mouse tracking wheel by applying pressure of the wheel towards the tracking mechanism & that seems to work for now. I don't really require distance when operating the mouse but i won't try it again. The mouse has a very comfortable design & if the mouse itself was built more reliable i would buy another one in the future but i would look for a different mouse.

Died for no reason 3/3/2012 10:25:41 AM

Pros: It was okay while it worked

Cons: I only had this thing sitting on a desk with the USB dongle parked inside for a few months, and I just tried it - doesn't work.

Overall Review: I had a Microsoft "wave" keyboard that was sitting around IN THE BOX - shortly after I started using it (which was of course going to be pass the return period and the receipt lost) I found it has a bad key. Brand new.

I've never had issues like these with other brands or Microsofts older keyboards and mice. Chances are the quality is just lower as far as I'm concerned.

I won't be buying Microsoft input devices anymore. Well maybe in the extremely unlikely event they bring about world peace.

Notebooks only 2/20/2012 8:58:14 AM

Comments: It's cheap ...and portable. I'd only recommend using it with a laptop.

If you use a mouse on your laptop frequently, you might want to get a full sized mouse, with a small transmitter instead.

This is just a convenient, cheap, backup mouse.

Great, basic mouse 1/24/2012 7:46:03 PM

Pros: Long battery life.
Small.
Works as intended.
USB receiver tucks into bottom of mouse.
Compatible with Snowlepoard, Windows XP and Windows 7

Cons: Battery little pain to remove.
No frills (isn't really a con).
USB receiver extends from the computer about 1.5"

Overall Review: I've had this mouse for 4-5 years. I have used it on two desktop systems, a Macbook and now a Windows laptop. I intend on getting a second for another laptop that I purchased for work. Can't go wrong for a basic, wireless, optical and portable mouse.
