Kensington PilotMouse Laser Wireless Mini


The Kensington PilotMouse Laser Wireless Mini uses a laser instead of the standard LED found in most optical mice. We've seen only one other authentic laser mouse, the Logitech MX1000, and we liked it so much we made it an Editors' Choice. Though the...

Laser technology increases sensitivity; flawless performance; RF receiver clips to mouse

Smaller scrollwheel requires more finger strokes; expensive

The Kensington PilotMouse Laser Wireless Mini is comfortable to use--for a portable mouse--and is a good performer, but it's more expensive than comparable mice.

Best wireless mini I've used


ultra-responsive laser; dependable, lag free RF connection; ergonomic, especially for a mini mouse; on/off switch; solid battery life

Uses 2AA batteries instead of 1 (many mice in this cateogry use 1)

Almost Perfect


I am very picky about the mouse I use, and after trying probably near 50 in my life, this is the first one I've ever really liked. I'm on my 3rd one now, and have no plans to change.

Most importantly, it is very comfortable in my hand. But this is a personal preference and everyone is different

A smaller, micro-sized dongle would make it perfect

On par with other laser mouse in the market ...


As of December 2006 ... since it's inception ... the price has gone down drastically making this mouse on par with the more expensive ones' and better value for the dollar ... at CompUSA it is on sale for $ 29.99 with a $ 5.00 rebate ... you cant beat...

Ease of Use ... Plug and Play ... Very Accurate and Good Range

Great Mouse


I recently bought a new tablet PC so needed a mini mouse. I bought the Kensignton Optical Mini, #72214. Nothing about it was appealing: hard to open case to insert batteries, hard to synch (needed a pen to press the mouse button underneath), hard to...

Ergonomic, instant synch & connect

Have to shop around to get a good price

Functionality over Form


The USB tongle is kept OUTSIDE of the mouse on the bottom. With everything mixed in in my bag, the USB tongle often comes lose and turn on the mouse, so my battery often drains out. Aside from that it is comparable to my Logitech VX.

Decent Laser Mouse. Accurate on my HP NC6400

USB is akwardly outside the mouse

Not a HTPC Mouse


should have known that it wouldn't live up to the task for only $35.

Size, styling

Did not live up to 30' range as advertised - at all. We have our HTPC above the tv, about 6' high, and when attempting to use the mouse with a perfect line of sight to the USB receiver from ~12' away, mouse was choppy, movements not consistently...

Needs work


I own Logitech products for the most part. LOTS OF THEM! Sometime I go out on a limb and buy an off-brand. I must say I was pretty happy with the product before it stopped working properly. A year for an inexpensive input device is tollerable.

I go through input devices like underwear! I got this mouse as part of a Keyboard Mouse combo. I saw my father eyeballing it one day so I donated it to the family. My Parent's are not heavy computer users, but they do spend a few hours each day...

After more than a year of use, the right mouse button is no longer working properly. Shopping for a new mouse now. Pretty annoyed since now I will have 2 dongles instead of 1 to control Keyboard and Mouse separately. Won't be buying this mouse, since...

NOT impressed


threw away ... literally! did not want to burdon anyone else with this lag monster. bought Logitech V450 - a very good mouse, but still waiting for perfect .. see my review there.

great ergonomics - nice feel in hand. good click feel. good center scroll and middle click feel. nice grippies on side

big lag in hand to screen action. goes into sleep mode too frequently and takes a second to come out of it. NOT a mouse for ANY productivity environment
