installation?...that was easy...


Just to be on the safe side...I plug it in when the lap top is shut down...and I unplug it after I shut down. Maybe ths is not necessary, you think?

Stellar added range

Tough to set up

Mouse size is a bit too small.


I like everything about it except the size is a bit too small. The tracking is much more accurate than my wireless mouse.

Works perfectly.


I've use this on two laptops, one Win 7 and one XP, and it installed easily and quickly on both and worked perfectly on both. I've used it on several surfaces, including a bed sheet. A flat surface is of course best, but it works on an uneven surface,...

Feels right, acts right!


I bought this for my wife and I want it for me. I love the feel and especially the weight of it. The cursor is an extension of my hand-eye coordination and the price was about as much as I am willing to pay for a mouse - which is very little! No excess...

Good Mid-Sized Travel Mouse


If this was a self-storing retractible mouse, it would be absolutely perfect. As it is, it is a great replacement for a compact or full sized mouse for travelling.
