Kensington Ci75m Wireless Notebook Mouse (black)

 

Accessory-maker Kensington is known for pumping out an endless array of tech add-ons, from iPod docks to laptop cases. Most are perfectly functional, but not exactly stylish, which makes this new line of travel mice (including the larger Ci70 LE and...

Built-in USB cable; less than 1 inch thick; USB receiver stores into the bottom of the mouse.

Not comfortable for long-term use; top cover pops off easily.

The Kensington Ci75m Wireless Notebook Mouse is a fine choice for when a laptop touch pad just won't do, with a USB receiver and USB cable stuffed into its slim body.

Review: Ci75m Wireless Notebook Mouse

 

The Kensington Ci75m Wireless Notebook Mouse is a great traveling companion. Solid, comfortable, accurate, and attractive—it's available in orange, grey, white, or black.

When open, the Ci75m reveals its dual nature: coiled inside is a two-foot USB cable that can be used in case of the unexpected demise of those batteries, or if you should find yourself in an RF-forbidden zone. The USB dongle that enables the mouse’s...

Review: Kensington Ci75m Wireless Notebook Mouse

 

I got a chance to take a look at a new mouse from Kensington, the Ci75m, that is one of a revamped line of mice and I/O products. It is geared to the ‘light' traveler, not necessarily a road warrior. I didn't expect to have a lot of great things to say...

I agree with “Chief Gadgeteer's” assessment of this mouse. The first time I used it on my XP Pro machine, I could not get it to work immediately, however. I plugged in the mini-usb connector and that worked fine… When I again tried the wireless...

"Great mouse, until it breaks"

 

It's an awesome mouse until the magnets fall off. I'm not sure if that's just bad luck or common, but I'm looking for a replacement now. Without the magnets the top half of the mouse falls off almost whenever you move it, although the mouse still works.

It's extremely portable, and the design actually feels reasonably comfortable once you get used to it. Battery life is decent (3-4 months with light-medium usage), and the wired option is a great back up.

The magnets that hold the mouse together fell off after about a year (usage of a few times a week for about an hour at a time).

"AWESOME MOUSE FOR THE PRICE."

 

I got is for a mere $8.00 from circuit city after $20 mail in rebate. So it is definitely wirth it, and funt o use.

Sleek design. Wireless and wired capability. Very portable and convenient.

Range of the wireless signal between the mouse and the USB receiver is very small, Barely even a meter away, the signal gets faint.

"Great design and comfort."

 

Innovative design, great purchase price, and is the most comfortable for my hands than any other mouse that I have used before. I bought it from Best Buy for twenty one dollars which is a great value. Overall, I am completely satisfied with it as a...

Stylish and great value.

Slim design takes some getting used to.

Great design but material issues

 

i loved my mouse, but the melted rubber thing finally makes my mouse to look like the frankestain-mouse, and the scroll wheel stop working. now i am getting an microssoft arc mouse, let's see.... If kensington replace the rubber for another material...

Had it for about a year and it's by far the best portable mouse experience i ever had, it has a nice design and it is very comfortable too, the wired option is very useful when running out of battery, and very slim so it don't make a bulk in the case

The rubber at the edge, and at the scroll whell altough it gave a great grip, doesn't resist any kind of heat, it literally melts, making the mouse look deform and awful and the scollwhell to stop working, even the very hand heat melted it down

Poorly engineered hardware

 

I bought three of these mices at different times, my first one had this issue of having the rubber on the mousewheel and the grip melt on me, as in the rubber on the mousewheel start to tear apart while the rubber where my thumb is deformed and smeared...

Small, slim, easy to fit, very comfortable ; ability to use wired power if batteries are dead

melty rubber ; bad click button ; a usb casing that breaks after so many uses (the usb casing head comes off the actual circuit part) ; magnets on the actual mouse falls out of their holes easily ; bad range
