Great Product

 

I needed an upgrade that was more sensitive and sturdier. So far this mouse is ACES.

Great bang for your buck!

 

I've been using this mouse on a netbook for almost 2 months now, works great. No problems what so ever.

Destroying IOGEAR Brand

 

IOGEAR is desroying its brand with this one product. I had a lot of respect for the brand, and then I bought two of these mice. Both have the same problems of losing connection and it has nothing to do with the cable winding device. It is the cheap...

Rarely it actually functions as a mouse

Usually it does not work at all. Problems include, poor out of spec USB extension cable which comes packaged with device which leads to the device losing connection constantly. Cheap materials leading to a poor overall feel. won't even show up as a...

You get what you pay for

 

This mouse feels like it has permanent, non-changeable mouse acceleration/lag. It feels extremely clunky and slow. I'm not even talking about gaming or editing; I mean for general desktop/laptop use.

It's small, it has a retractable cord, it's aesthetically pleasing

The problem for me isn't the precision, it's the lag. I know it's only 800 dpi, but it feels so much lower than that. I feel like I'm trying to point and select items on my computer using a rubber stick. Tested on two separate machines

Consumer review by:

worthless

 

Sticking with name brands only now. Not worth the time to find out your mouse doesn't work on a trip.

small and portable

I bought four of these for my laptop. I am on my last one already in 8 months. The left click button works great at first then works sometimes

Consumer review by:

Garbage

 

I just wanted a cheap travel mouse, but apparently this little guy was more cheap than travel.

Worked well for the short time it functioned properly. I did notice that clicking both mouse buttons at the same time would sometimes result in fighting for which one would actually click, instead of just simply both of the buttons

One day while using this mouse the primary mouse button kind of sunk in. As in the plastic for the button went limp and I had to push down hard to get it to click the button ; I took it apart and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't hold itself above...

Good value

 

I was planning on getting the LG GH22NS30 to match my last dvd purchase, but it seems that that item was upgraded to the GH22NS50 which is just a GH22NS30 model w/firmware spam included! Anyway, I didn't want that one. so I went with the next one down...

durable, cheap, and so far works pretty well. I use it on my old acer laptop and i dont notice any additional battery drain

no fwd / backword button for web browsing, but then again, its so small i'd rather it stay cheap than double in cost for 2 buttons

Consumer review by:

Not happy

 

I would have been very happy with this mouse, except that after a few weeks of use, the little spool that winds up the cord stopped working -- the mechanism that holds it open always wants to wind up the cord on its own. This is very frustrating as I...

Small size, comfortable

Cord spool won't let the cord stay extended

Tiny portable mouse

 

I looked for a tiny mouse for my 5 year-old son. This one is perfect for him.

Cheap price, Extremely portable

too small for adult

Consumer review by:

wife wanted for a small portable mouse that will work on almost surface. This product hits hard on all those points.

small ; inexpensive ; quite portable

smaller than I like for my man hands

Product Specifications

IOGEAR's new USB Optical Mini Mouse 800 (the vanguard product in the company's new MiniMouse 800 Series) is an excellent tool for mobile professionals. This mouse allows users to select resolutions of 400, 600, and even 800 dpi. The 800 dpi resolution offers twice the accuracy of standard mice, and is ideal for graphics and web designers who demand pinpoint accuracy. It is small, lightweight, consumes virtually no room in laptop carry-bags, works on most surfaces, and needs just inches for accurate movement. The ergonomic contour design offers comfortable use for hours; moreover, its greater speed reduces excessive and potentially harmful arm movement. This unit is USB ready, Plug-n-Play, and Hot Pluggable.
