This Kensington "Mouse-in-a-Box" is a very basic, but perfectly functional optical mouse that also happens to be a great value. We needed a "no frills" mouse for my mother to use and this fit the bill perfectly. Here are my observations:

Pros -
+ Comfortable; this is a full sized mouse that feels "right" in the hand
+ Plug-and-Play; no software needed or supplied, just connected to the USB port and Windows did the rest
+ Long Cord; it is at least 5' long, allowing it easily reach anywhere on the desk
+ Good Tracking; works well on every surface I tested it on, including a generic mouse mat, a wood desktop, and my chair armrest
+ Scroll Wheel; works well for scanning through web pages and long documents

Misc -
* Very Light; I would like it to have a little more mass, but it is likely a matter of personal preference
* Minimal Packaging; came in small box containing the mouse protected in a bubble bag and a little warranty card, no plastic clam shell to cut open

While this might be too basic for some users, it is just right for our needs!

Recommended!

There is nothing spectacular about this mouse, but if you are looking for a solid mouse under $10 this is a good choice. I had to replace my parent's mouse which had buttons that were very difficult to press and a scroll wheel that was a challenge to roll. This Kensington is much better.

Like others have said, it is lightweight. For older people who simply want a mouse that works to browse the internet and look at pictures, this mouse is perfect. It does fit the hand very nicely and the buttons are very easy to click, but firm enough so you won't accidentally click them. The scroll wheel scrolls with ease and is textured for a good grip you can feel. No, I wouldn't want to use this for gaming or intense work, but for general computer use it is just right and at the right price.

I installed this on 2 separate machines, a laptop with Windows 7 and a desktop with Vista. For both, the drivers were located and the entire installation process was complete in under 20 seconds. Overall, no issues and a product I can recommend.

My Belkin optical mouse finally quit on me, I think I used the left button way too much playing Diner Dash. I'd never heard of the Kensington brand before now, but decided to give it a try because of the cheap price and 5 year warranty.

It has a 5 foot cord, attaches via USB port, definitely easy plug and play hookup - I'm running Vista. I have small hands and this feels comfortable. The buttons and scroll wheel work as expected as far as a basic mouse.

But if you are wanting to use it for games, even a game as basic as Solitaire, or even Slingo, find something else. This mouse is not responsive enough, and the left button starts feeling mushy after a week of using it.

UPDATE: Still working fine after almost 2 years of use, I quit playing Diner Dash so not as much wear & tear on the left button.

Mouse measures approximately 4.5 inches long by 2.25 wide by 1.5 tall.

I am really liking the Kensington mouse. Here is what I like about it.

1. Size is just right for my large hand.

2. Where one would place their thumb while using it is lightly textured.

3. Scroll wheel is smooth and quite, and the right and left click are spot on for me.

4. It's light but seems to be more expensive than it really is.

5. 5 year warranty!

Compared to what Logitech is putting out lately in this price bracket, Kensington has a winner in my book.

This isn't the slickest or most ergonomic mouse out there, but it works reliably and didn't cost too much. It has a nice long usb cord. It has a very neutral, generic shape, which is better than the tried-but-missed-the-mark "ergonomic" mice out there.

I have two of these mice. One on an Dell XP system and one on an Apple G4 mac mini. They work very well on both systems. The Apple mouse quit working well, and this was a nice replacement, and a very good price that is hard to beat. I am very pleased with it in both systems. It is a good size and fits my hand well. It tracks well. It is everything I wanted in a straight forward mouse.

RFI is radio frequency interference. It's what is generated by an electronic product that has not been properly shielded to contain its signals. Kensington states that this product complies with FCC rules on permitted emissions, but I find that this mouse delivers way too much RF - a real problem since I want to use it with my emergency response radio-and-computer setup.

The typical response to such interference is to add suppression (clamp-on ferrites, for example). However, suppressing the RFI also renders the mouse inoperative. The fact that an external clamp-on ferrite disables the device completely reveals a serious design defect. Kensington has used an unshielded (and also apparently untwisted!!) cable to connect the mouse to a computer. I can't conceive of how this device possibly passed any legitimate EMI / RFI test with such a cable.

Otherwise, the mouse is great. It has the classic size and heft of a three-button wheel mouse. It's cheap. It's optical and has adapted well to a wide variety of surfaces.

I plan to rip the cable out and replace it with a shielded USB cable. This is a lot of work for a cheap product, but I'd rather do this than send it to a landfill. As-is, nobody should be using this device - if the RFI is not a problem for you, it probably is for one of your neighbors.
