Great laptop mouse


as always shipped very fast Newegg is great

Very sensitive used it for photo editing works great. The cord makes it very portable without tangling up the with other cords

Great for Travels


Very small, mouse will never reach your palm but still feels great.

Small, sensitive, retractable, and comes with an extension and carrying pouch

Great mouse when it was on sale for about 13 bucks. Now it is back to 35 dollars and I wouldn't buy this for that price ; The cord is flat instead of round so It can roll back up more compact. This also means it will get stuck if you have too many...

Good for notebook


Not really a con to me, but it might be a bit small for big hand people.

Provided a bag for carry and an extention cable. Good tracking

The spec said that the Hand Orientation for the mouse is Both Hands, but I think it is more for the right hand. So if you are left handed, think twice before buying it. (Even though I am right handed)

Great Mouse, for a While


I obviously purchased a poor specimen. Over my time of ownership however, the mouse was great!

Small, precise

Scroll wheel stopped working after 3 months of use

OK when on sale


I bought this to replace my Targus micro mouse. This one is at least double the size so I'm disappointed, but for the sale price its not worth returning. I definitely would not pay $35 for it.

Accurate, comes with case

Big for a travel mouse, no cheaper than wireless ones that are similar size

Broken out of the box


Guess eventually everyone gets a bum product at some point. Figures it was a Christmas gift as well for my sons new laptop (bought from Newegg as well). Sadly in cases like this shipping is up to the consumer to send back which feels OK on big ticket...

Portable and cool retractable cord. 1600 dpi Laser mouse so it "should" be fairly accurate too. No drivers needed of course. Plugged it in and Windows (Vista Home Premium in this case) installed it right off no hassle

Mouse worked for about 1 minute. The buttons still function but no cursor movement on the mouse. Like it fried or something?!? No going to waste anymore money or time on a $12 dollar mouse

IOGEAR GME226AW6 Silver/Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Laser 1600 dpi Travel Mouse


Cable is very thin. Hope it lasts.

It works :) Comfortable. Retractable cable mechanism is nice. Bought it for my wife, and she likes it

Horrible wheel-click action. Worst I have seen, almost un-usable. If you use middle-click a lot, you will hate this

Good things come in small packages


Its a good mouse for a laptop-im not sure if i would pay 35 bucks for it though....

I got this mouse when it was on sale, and i have to say im very pleased with its performance. It has a quick response time, and even though its small, i haven't had much problem with hand cramping. Great for travelling with your laptop

The cord is a little flimsy like someone else said, but that is to be expected so it can be retracted

decent and would buy again for another laptop


its a decent mouse for travelers and laptop users. in a pinch it can get you by if your desktop mouse dies but its not for every day.

cable retracts, its small, no more knots. great for business travelers

the USB connector is small and can be hard to insert and remove ; the mouse itself is rather small for anyone with large hands. after a fre minutes of use my fingers get stiff and sore. no fault of the product

the scroll button is hard as hell to press down whether thats a con or pro is up to you guys. al in all i suggest getting this mouse. so far its keeping me happy =]

alright this mouse is pretty good. i was looking for a targus mouse that was similar to this one at first but i was out of stock so i settled for this one. i didnt regret my decision. 1600 dpi which is around what im use too so thats good. its...

the cable seems flimsy but its expected since its retractable just keep it away from sharp objects

Product Specifications

IOGEAR's new Laser Travel Mouse is an excellent tool for medical offices, libraries, and schools as well as for mobile professionals, gamers, and desktop users. This new IOGEAR mouse uses VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) as the light source, which provides 28x more tracking power than mice using an optical sensor. VCSEL allows the mouse to work on virtually any surface, even glass, and provides an extremely high resolution of 1600dpi, substantially reducing the amount of injury-producing hand and arm movement. IOGEAR's Laser Travel Mouse USB ready, Plug-n-Play, and Hot Pluggable.
