Kensington K72405US

 

This mouse feels very lightweight and cheap, and that's because it is. The mouse will eventually start to cut out and just die. I thought it was the batteries but when I switched them out for new ones the mouse's performance didn't improve. To give you...

It was cheap

It doesn't work

Great mobile mouse

 

I used this mouse HEAVILY for gaming on the road from September of 2012 till recently when I got a job that let me stay home. Buttons all still click like new, no noticible wear, mouse wheel still works great, dropped many times in airplanes and no...

Not too small, great ergonomic grip, nice little magnetized slot to put the dongle when you are not using it so you don't lose it. Oh yeah, small dongle so you don't break it off accidentally

Died in a little over 1 year

 

Fits great ; Small size and feels really good to hold ; 2 DPI settings lets to dial it in

Wireless USB has to be close to the mouse to detect ; Ordered this product in 05/12 and it died 07/13. Mouse kept up real well! never dropped, Mouse just started randomly cutting out then doesn't respond anymore. Completely dead paperweight. IMHO a...

Good Value

 

Battery life will go a lot further if you turn off the mouse when done using. The button placement is what sold me on this cheap mouse. I would probably try something else in the future if there was a similar option with the same config, but have more...

Great size for average hands ; Extra 2 buttons exactly where I like them ; No issues with tracking, l/r click, or any other buttons after a year of use

My mousewheel started squeaking after a couple months. Its irritating, but didn't feel like it deserved a -egg, as the mouse still functions perfectly otherwise

Consumer review by:

Good Affordable Mouse

 

For the price, it's an excellent mouse.

Very comfortable and ergonomic mouse for small to medium sized hands. If you have larger hands you may want to look elsewhere, but the shape of the mouse is perfect. Buttons are responsive and the DPI adjustment is a good range between the two...

The mouse "feels" cheap, its very light and "hollow" feeling. I use this mouse for work and at home I use a weighted gaming mouse and I have to transition a bit. The mouse does not appear to have a auto-off, instead it has a on/off switch and which I...

Don't buy it

 

Seemed like a good product when I first bought it

The scroll wheel started a high pitched squeak after I had it for about 2 weeks

Consumer review by:

GREAT

 

It's cheap 5 buttons ergonomic design for comfort preset sensitivity button behind the wheel you can hit easily with your finger on the wheel The side has grip on it for your thumb

THIS IS PERFECT, not to high of a price, Weighs light, 5 buttons two on the side on the top, the two side buttons are preset for back and forth web browsing and the top button is right behind the wheel which adjusts your sensitivity one high and one...

It's got its ups and downs.

 

There's a good chance I'm doing something wrong. Heck, maybe I just got a dud mouse. I have no idea how to clean the thing beyond simply blowing around the scroll wheel, but I'd love to hear any solutions.

Fits my hand wonderfully, scrolls smoothly and (at first) quietly. Nice little receiver is very subtle and doesn't attract attention

After about a month of use, the scroll wheel has started to squeak loudly when rolled down. It's very annoying, to say the least. After only a couple days, the third mouse button (being the scroll wheel, again) stopped working as nicely as it had...

Worked Well

 

The mouse design was good. There's a button on the top that I don't know what it does. I bought a larger, corded version of this mouse for my desktop I'd recommend that over this one.

The mouse was comfortable and responsive

The receiver went dead after about 6 months. There were a few times when I had to reset the mouse in order to get a signal. Another issue is the power switch on the bottom is difficult to turn on and off

Kensington Pro Fit K72405US Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 1750 dpi Mid-Size Wireless Mouse

 

I used this mouse for about a month before I went and got a SteelSeries Sensei witch I LOVE.

It's a nice size, fits well in your hand

Will not keep a connection with the usb nub. Constantly disconnects in the middle of doing something, and when it does stay connected it's very jerky
