It's precise!

 

OK, I've read the other reviews, it's cool that IOGear cares enough to get on here and reply to comments. BUT, there is a problem with charging these units. The cord that comes with it is a joke. It's obvious it doesn't work a high percentage of the...

DPI select, light weight, works pretty well on just a pillow, the couch, my pants leg, etc.....did I mention it's precise

Cheap feel, but I am used to "Weight means Quality".... but does it ; Charging this thing is more than challenging ; The laser is quirky on any shiny surface. But that's just the nature of it ; If it charged easily, it would be 5 stars

Consumer review by:

Works, not stellar though

 

I bought this specific one because it had the front/back browser buttons AND it was bluetooth (didn't want to use up my USB ports on my new laptop, and it had bluetooth, so I figured, why not go bluetooth) I've got a wireless Logitech on my other...

the Front and Back browser buttons are nice ; The scroll wheel is nice and functional

The thing is very tricky to connect with bluetooth with my laptop ; If it "goes to sleep" (I believe this occurs after 30 minutes) I have to turn it off then back on then reconnect it with my laptop's bluetooth. (my laptop is brand new and it's still...

IOGEAR GME229B Tilt Wheel 2.4 GHz Wireless Laser 1600 dpi Mouse

 

Very easy to connect to bluetooth, and works without a hitch. Ergonomic design. Comes with a carrying pouch. Cheap

No replacable battery

Consumer review by:

Nice little mouse

 

I have two of these. Seems like IOGear could have installed a larger battery. Seems pretty light for its volume. Apparently, I like the mouse, since I bought two, and am thinking of buying another.

Lithium based battery ; Charges via USB ; Back-forward buttons ; Light weight ; Dedicated button to switch resolution

Too large to be a travel mouse

Save your money

 

Good range, button layouts

WOULD NOT CHARGE ABOUT 35% BATTERY. WOULD NOT CHARGE WHEN PLUGGED INTO COMPUTER

Consumer review by:

decent

 

Good performance with battery hurdles. I didn't install any software vista did its thing. I'm using an AZIO bluetooth reciever, both work well together.

Device is small and light. Has decent range. accurate and smooth just like a wired mouse, I haven't tried gaming though. It will work while charging from USB

Battery isn't changeable, once its dead you are done until the battery can recharged. Battery life dosen't seem all that good considering light amount of use I give it. Dosen't give a low battery warning so it'll just stop working and make you wonder....

Different - but better

 

I think over all I am happy with, bought it for a G50vt-x2, it came with vista 64 no compatabilitie problems was truly a plug and play.

Light - very light felt cheap at first compared to a logitec desktop wireless that I have ; Rechargeable - got about 14 hours of use from a charge (switching it off when not in use)

Buttons - the forward backword buttons are opposite of my logitec, but after just a couple days of use I may prefer this set up (button closest to the front of the mouse above your thumb rest position is you back page button, The adjustable dpi is...

Great! but...

 

I got this mouse to use with the ASUS EeePC 1000H and it works great with the exception of the Cons I've listed.

Small ; Rechargeable ; Bluetooth ; Laser

Thumb buttons (Forward/Backward) and work in the reverse of what I am used to ; The resolution button on the right side gets pushed accidentally all the time by the side of my ring finger
