Fragile

 

Best $50.00 paperweight i ever bought.

Small, light, good tracking on textured surfaces but not my glass desktop.

Frequently quits. Need to reassign to bluetooth (pair)

Excellent notebook mouse

 

It does go to sleep, but has a wakeup time that's not too annoying. I always click on the right button to get it awake fastest.

Excellent tracking, slick battery compartment, nice weight. I've bought at least four of these. I have one working on a Vista 64 Business desktop just to check compatibility and one on a Vista 32 Home Premium notebook . I did not load any drivers

I wish it were a bit cheaper ; they'd make nice gifts

Easily the worst mouse I've ever owned

 

This mouse made me go back to my el cheapo corded backup mouse. Stay away from Kensington bluetooth mice. This a replacement that Kensington sent me because my first mouse died after a few months, in addition to having the same problems above. On a...

It is small and portable. The range is surprisingly good. I've used it from about 40ft away during presentations.

The tracking leaves a lot to be desired, on many surfaces (which other mice do fine on) it simply will not track. Other times, when the mouse is sitting still the cursor will start creeping on its own. Shuts itself off randomly. Sometimes it doesn't...

Terrible on intel MacPro no pairing on PC

 

If you are considering this mouse for your laptop, find another brand. This is not worth the money nor the time to research how to make it work. Customer service less than satisfactory. There are no software drivers, diagnostic or configuration tools...

Nice look, decent portable size... would be nicer if it would work at all on PC.

Horrible tracking on PC, worse than my mightyMouse, this mouse jumps all over the place. The pairing on PC did not work at all. A bit heavy because of the AA batteries, ergonomically not best for large hands.

works great with Mac!

 

Felt some of the reviews were misleading, then again, maybe it just depends on your operating system. I've had the same batteries in for 3 months now, and I use it everyday at work. Of course its going to go to sleep after being inactive for a couple...

Good range, love the design, easy reconnect, works great with my MacBook!

tracking could be a little better, but if you just change the settings to a slower speed it works better. If you use a mouse pad though, I doubt you'd have this problem!!

Nice size, sucks battery, sluggish

 

Wait till someone comes out with a functional bluetooth mouse. They all seem to suck.

Nice form factor, great tactile response, clever battery hatch, attractive design.

Annoying delay every time I begin to use it. If I wait for more than a few seconds between mouse actions, the thing goes to sleep. But that doesn't mean it's power efficient: Drains batteries VERY fast. I just went thru my AA's with 2500 mAh charge in...

Terrific

 

Superb bluetooth mouse.

There's just a tad bit of a delay when the notebook boots for the mouse to kick in.

Kensington PilotMouse Mini 72414 2-Tone 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel Bluetooth Bluetooth Wireless Optical Mouse - Retail

 

great size, and funcionality. the buttons aren't compromised for tight packaging. the wheel is also standard for a mouse, grooved for the definitive scroller.

a little heavy. houses 2 AA batteries, which make for long power, but not graceful sliding

adequate

 

compact design, good shape and button placement.

even when used close to macbook laptop, signal seems to be spotty at times resulting in jerky cursor movement.
