Comfortable to use on top of a desk or in the air; easy-to-use software; more than 20 programmable commands

Precision control in the air is difficult; extra buttons are easy to hit accidentally

Gyration Go 2.4 Cordless Air Optical Mouse Review and Prices

 

More and more, home users are incorporating their PCs into their home theater system. It can often be a pain to control the computer in the living room, however, even with wireless input devices. That's where a peripheral like Gyration's new Go 2.4...

Great for distance control, very programmable

Light, Versatile & Easy to use. More than just a mouse!

 

Given the choices of this mouse and any other I would choose The Gyration Go 2.4 Cordless Air Optical mouse almost every time. Other air mice have great features, but this one is so comfortable I choose to overlook the the things I listed as cons most...

Super fast setup, easy to get used to, super comfortable on the desktop, but even more comfortable in the air, very precise mouse movement and response to air motions, buttons are out of reach when using in the air avoiding unintentional mouse clicks, pro

Charger adapter is a little big, comes with four parts: Go Mouse, charging cradle, transceiver and power adapter. Don't leave one of those parts behind after your presentation. The ability to charge with a standard USB cable would be extremely nice (easy

The Greatest for Constant Computer Users

 

Can't live without it. I've now purchased two; one for the office and one at home. I?ve even gone through the learning curve to use the air mouse in my weaker left hand when surfing and using the keyboard with my right. Check the internet market for...

A must for constant computer users, repetitive motion injuries and cramps of hand/arm muscles. I developed arm and shoulder cramps and went to using both ball-mouse on the desktop and the air mouse in the air

A one-day learning curve about as difficult as learning to use chop sticks. Well worth it. Check the internet market for the inexpensive replacement battery that lasts years of daily use

Brand new - Broken right out of the box

 

Gyration issued an RMA, but I have to ship at my own expense. Not sure it's worth it. the keyboard is an overpriced piece of junk too. Flimsy, uncomfortable. Have to use pads to make it stable on absolutely even surface, because the body is not...

None that I can see compared to products in the same category from other manufacturers

Was broken - pointer would get stuck every 2 minutes or so, and the only way to unfreeze it was to take the battery pack out and reconnect. Totally unusable, as that was happening every 2 minutes or so. Must have a mouse pad, otherwise does not work

Good mouse! The keyboard is a bit light weight (combo)

 

Good deal for the price. I got the combo locally for around $99.

Totally futuristic! I feel like I am using a Wii wireless controller on my PC! ;-)

Mouse is great, is like a laptop's. Forced to buy both since my local PC store did not have the mouse separate. I guess if you wanted to sit back from the PC or laptop or was projecting the image & walking around the room both would be nice to have
