Cheap. Works. Basic Mouse.

 

Not sure if I'd pay for it, but something to toss in the spare parts box or laptop bag. I've got a G500 on my office and home gaming rig, this doesn't compare. For an average user it would most likely be just fine. Gave one to my Mom, she loves it. Her...

Was Free. Works like a mouse. Small dongle. Comfortable (for me)

Cheaply built. Not fully programming with all 8 buttons as indicated on packaging. Wireless. (I hate wireless input devices, batteries are an IT Manager's budget nightmare.)

Great Mouse

 

I received this product free w/ the purchase of a APC UPS. I was skeptical about the "feebie", but this (actually have 3 of them) has turned out to be a quality product.

Very responsive. (2.4GHz wireless tech) ; DPI/res setting, great for graphic editing and/or gaming ; Very small USB dongle ; Media and/or back/forward buttons make browsing quick ; Vertical and horizontal wheel action (rolls up and down and clicks left...

None yet, I'm waiting to see what the battery life is like

Consumer review by:

Worth every penny.

 

The side-scrolling wheel doesn't work at all in IE8, but maybe that's simply because I didn't install the included software. The DPI button makes a difference in pointer speed when pressed, but I didn't notice any difference in pointer precision....

It was free, so that's a good thing. Its range seems to be decent enough to me; Works at upto about 11 feet, even on the other side of 2 walls and some furniture. It tracks well on my reflective desk surface (no room for a mousepad). It's also quite...

The balance is horrible; 2 AA batteries in the back, no weight at all in the front. The rear-most slider pad on the bottom of the mouse wasn't applied correctly, and after an attempt to re-align it in its recessed area, it's now wavy and still uneven....

It isn't that bad,,,yet.

 

It was free. From what others have said about this mouse, I would have never even considered purchasing it. Many were upset by the range, I have it maybe 5 feet from the sensor and so far it works just fine.

It is comfortable and it was free, so I can't really complain

The left and right click buttons are a little more "firm" to press and depress than my Logitech G-5, but I'm not planning on using this for my gaming rig, so who cares. Did I mention it was free when I bought a CyberPower UPS

Consumer review by:

Not deathly horrible, I guess...

 

Cheap, lightweight, feels nice when holding (at least to me). Slides nicely across my cheap mouse pad. No wires to tangle you up

Cuts out frequently. Even when a mere inches away from the USB receiver, it will cut out for a few minutes and I'll get stuttering. Only has a radius of about 10-12ft or so ; Your side buttons are automatically bound to your forward and back buttons...

good but doesn't take the cake

 

Not whwat I had hoped for. I might be bias, my main mouse is the Logitech vx revolution.

works as a mouse ; Does have 2 programable buttons ; Lightweight

Mouse only has 2 programable buttons, out of 8 ; Bulky

Worst Mouse Ever

 

Never heard of the company before buying this mouse, and I will never buy another one of their products again.

Cheap, with horizontal scroll

It's very poorly programmed. The mouse buttons that are usually set as button 4 and 5, also known as Forward and Back for browsers, are actually just linked to a keyboard shortcut holding down CTRL, and pressing the left and right arrow keys. If you're...

Consumer review by:

It's "8-button. programmable"...

 

I was given this for Christmas. I would not have bought it myself, but someone else did thinking it had volume controls on it, which was something I requested. *This mouse does NOT have dedicated volume control buttons* They advertise like it does on...

Pros? It works as a cheap normal mouse I guess... The pointer itself seems accurate enough. The DPI button seems to actually work, which was something I was very surprised about considering how cheap it felt and looked

It's "8-button", "programmable", not programmable 8 button. And by 8 button they mean 4 button. And by 4 button they mean only 2 are programmable. And by programmable they mean you install software that rips of normal windows functions that you can...

Wonderful mouse for desktop

 

This is more of a nitpick-thing, but the mouse looks like it should be for your left hand, but feels VERY comforable. The shape might be weird but it feels like it was carved for your hand. The zoom buttons are kind of useless.

I recently bought this mouse, and have been VERY pleased with it. It responds smoothly and gracefully. Installing the drivers from the included CD was quick and painless. Feels very good to hold. The DPI button can change from precision to speed with a...

Does not have a drink holder

8 Buttons??????

 

Don't bother with the CD with drivers (It caused BSOD for me). Go to iHome's site and download the latest driver there. Maybe they'll fix the buttons or better yet allow the user to reprogram the Zoom/Un-zoom and center scroll wheel functions.

Excellent operating range! The DPI button which is suppose to provide increased performance for gaming is like increasing the mouse motion gain without opening the mouse configuration utility. The scroll wheel, Left & Right buttons and the Forward &...

1.) The nano USB receiver only allows communication with the mouse so a separate receiver and USB jack are needed if you have a wireless keyboard that you want to use concurrently. Not ideal if you only have one USB jack on the front side of your...
