Perfect Weight, very precise easy and fast connection


It's a great mouse, very easy to connect and with a nice combination between size and weight. The size is perfect for a notebook (not so big to carry but enough to fit your hand).

Perfect size and weight. Very good perfonmance. Easy to connect and low delay to reconnect from standby

Lack of addittional buttons. It has only two buttons plus the scroll

Great bluetooth mouse


I read a bunch of coments regarding this mouse, some positive and some negative. I decided to buy one and I am quite pleased with the mouse. The pairing can be a little tricky, especially after your system goes to sleep. I wished the bluetooth mouse...

Connect quickly, small and easy to use for long periods of time

The pairing can be a little tricky, and it is a little expensive

Question- Does it have a dongle?


My friend is considering purchasing this mouse for his new MacBook, but reading the reviews, I've got a question- Does it have a USB dongle/adapter? I've been looking at other "Bluetooth" mice, but they come with USB adapters. What's the point if your...

two buttons, for mac users still used to PCs

size, others have mac problems

I've had this mouse for about 4 months. Each time my laptop hibernates, it loses the connection. This is totally unacceptable for a $50 mouse. Maybe I'm the one with the issue. Afterall, I sunk too much $$$ into this thing. I'm gonna return it to...

Comfortable Grip & Great Style

Loses Connection Constantly; Batteries Don't Last Long

This mouse won't do what you think!


As you can read from my CONS there were 2 major difficulties I encountered with my NEW Powerbook running "Tiger" (OS 10.4.2). 1. Every time I turned off my computer and later restarted, I had to go through the "pairing" sequence again. 2. All I...

Good size, looks nice

1. When starting computer, BT will not automatically connect and 2. Can not program buttons

Consumer review by:

Poor Tracking, very jumpy, noticeable delay


I bought this mouse online after much research. I wanted a bluetooth mouse that was fairly small. I have an Imac G5 and Mac compatibility was required. I wanted a two button mouse with a scroll wheel and this fit the description. Unfortunately, this...

Nice form factor, fits hand well

Poor Tracking, very jumpy, noticeable delay

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)

Consumer review by:

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...
