After I noticed my thumbs developing slight pain from using the cramped touchpad on my laptop, I looked around for a cordless mouse. I opted for the Kensington Pilot Mini for the following reasons, in order of importance:

1) Bluetooth technology (no infrared receiver to deal with)

2) Priced lower than other models such as the MSFT mouse

3) Compact size because I travel every couple of months

I'll cut to the chase and list my pros and cons.

Cons:

- First mouse arrived and within a few days, the rubber pad peeled away from the chassis. I firmly pressed it down so that the adhesive made contact again but it would only stay down for a few days. I returned the mouse for a replacement.

- About half the time, when I stop moving the mouse, the cursor drifted right to left. It's unclear whether this is due to the mouse or my Bluetooth card but the replacement does not seem to have this problem.

- The scroll wheel makes an annoying rattling sound when scrolling. Not a problem at home but this could get annoying if I'm in a meeting. Replacement mouse also has this problem.

- I bought this for $52.99 but I now see the price is $69.99. At $52.99, it was pricier than most IR mice but I thought I'd invest in the Bluetooth technology and use the mouse for a number of years. In retrospect, I find the quality shoddy for a product priced at this premium. Certainly at $69.99, the mouse is overpriced in my opinion. I recognize I'm paying the early adopter price for Bluetooth but if you can get by with an IR mouse, do that or wait until this device drops to $30 in a year.

Pros:

- Setup is incredibly easy (I'm using XP pro with the Kensington Bluetooth card).

I've had this mouse for about 10 days now, so my experience is limited. However, I have a pretty good feel for how the device works. Let's consider the following areas:

Size - I like this mouse because it is an in between size. It is smaller than a desktop mouse, but it is bigger than most wireless and other laptop mice. I have bigger hands so something a little bigger was necessary. I have found it very comfortable to use for hours at a time.

Pairing - This is a little odd. You flip the mouse's on/off switch, and then a dedicated pairing button. After doing so, you search for a specific device from your bluetooth icon in the sytem tray. Select the device from the list and then click the mouse to confirm. However, the device doesn't show up in "My Bluetooth Places" or as a paired device. This is confusing because I thought that I would have to pair the device every time I shutdown/restarted my PC. To my surprise, after Windows boots, all you have to do is click the mouse one time, and it connects. It would still be nice for it to behave like other bluetooth devices.

Usage - I do not play games so I have not had the problems that others have described. For use with Microsoft Office and surfing, I have found nothing negative about it. Right and left clicks and scrollwheel work as expected.

Battery Life - I am still on the batteries that came with the device. However, I would have liked to have seen a rechargable device with a USB plug-in for charging purposes. Depending on how often the batteries run out, this might not be that big of an issue. Still, I would have liked to have seen more consideration given to this area. The dedicated on/off switch as well as standby mode should maximize battery life.

First of all, I bought this mouse because I wanted something for desk use while my laptop was at home. I also really wanted two buttons and a scroll wheel, and no wires to get in the way.

That being said, for my purposes, this mouse works fine. It doesn't require any special software to set-up (my PowerBook recognized it immediately), and works out of the box with the included batteries. It has an on/off switch, which I find VERY useful (and surprisingly is not included with a lot of Bluetooth mice). If you are going to be taking this in a backpack/bag then you will want to prevent the mouse from accidentally being turned on and wasting batteries.

So what's my gripe for giving the mouse 3 stars? This mouse doesn't work that great if you are more than a few feet away. Although it's supposed to work within 60 feet, it doesn't work WELL. Also, it tends to lose connection once in a while (although it gains it back in a few seconds), and the tracking precision is only mediocre. However, I have gotten used to the way it works-- but I shouldn't have to, right?

On a side note, the term "mini" doesn't entirely apply to this mouse. The mouse is more of a "midsize". It's larger than the compact & portable mice that are seen out there (geared toward notebook users). However, it's not as big as the full size ergonomic mice. This isn't necessarily a problem, but it could annoy some people. However, if that is what you're looking for, then it's a plus.

BOTTOM LINE: If you want a mid-sized mouse with the convenience of Bluetooth, an on/off feature, and will be using this mouse close to your computer (3-5 feet) for basic tasks (i.e. not gaming), then this mouse is more than adequate.
