Belkin Bluetooth Wireless Optical Mouse

 

Belkin's inexpensive input device changes your PC into a Bluetooth-ready machine, but its performance during testing was up and down.

At $80, this is the cheapest way to get a Bluetooth hub along with your new mouse, and it's a nicely designed model. But we found the Bluetooth connection and responsiveness flaky.

Belkin has jumped right on the Bluetooth input-device bandwagon along with Microsoft and Logitech. Unfortunately, the $80 Belkin Bluetooth Wireless Optical Mouse doesn't maintain Belkin's reputation as an inexpensive input-device manufacturer; we found...

Bluetooth connectivity; easy setup; sleek design.

Substandard battery life; Bluetooth features are confusing; pricey.

Belkin's mouse is a decent choice if you're looking for an input device with Bluetooth connectivity, but there are better options.

"Works Greats Blue works up to 30 yards with receiver"

 

One of the best mouse in my life time and has been through everything. Usually I get a mouse every year because it wares and tears but this mouse is still going on strong for the last 4 years. Great Job Belkin. I am a IT tech at a school so I deal with...

The size is actually really nice since my hand is quite big and very comfortable. Had it for 4 years now and is still going strong. Has been through rain and shine including the occasional drops on hardwood floor still works like new. Macbook 06 Blac

Only draw back is no on and off switch in which if you take 1 battery out it should be okay when you know you wont be using it for a while. To some people the bulky design is a bit too much. Takes just a few seconds for blue tooth to catch at start.

"Decent bluetooth mouse"

 

Some consider this a big mouse but I find it very comfortable. The extra buttons make expose in OS X work like a champ!

The tracking is not as precise as I would like, and battery life is atrocious with no on/off switch. OS X integration could be better - battery life indicator, easier pairing...

"Delivers Excellent, Reliable, Uncomplecated Performance."

 

Un-complicated, reliable. Very easy to install, Unsurpassed level of compatability with standard HID Bluetooth Profile across operating systems

No off switch to conserve batteries when not in use.
