Good Wireless, But at Significant Disadvantage
on April 8, 2010
First of all, I would like to point out that the mouse is very welll designed and constructed. The little storage area built into the underside of the mouse for the Nano receiver is of immense value and convenience. I also like the fact that even though it is advertised as a notebook mouyse, you can, in fact, very conveniently use it on a desktop computer. I especially like the fact that even though there is no direct line-of-sight between the Nano received and the mouse, the mouse still functions well.
I am not sure, however, that the ability to adjust the height of the mouse is of any real use. Granted I have only been using the mouse every day for for about a week, but I cannot feel any more or less confort when adjusting the height of the mouse.
One definite disadvantage is that the curos on this mouse moves very sluggisly on the screen. I'm not sure if this is a common problem for all wireless mouse products, but there is definite and annoying lag between mouse movement and cursos movement. Frankly, it is annoying such that I'd rather just suffer the inconvenience or a corded mouse.
Another disadvantage is that this mouse is optical and as such you will have serious difficulties if your desktop is glass or unless you use a mouse pad. This, however, would be tolerable were it not for the sluggishness in response issue above.
The optical portion of the mouse is on the bottom and around the optical sensor is an aluminum foil ring. This foil ring has the tendency to peel off. I'm not sure if that will have any effect on the operability of the mouse though.
All in all, this is a good product, but just make sure you can tolerate a mouse with an extremely sluggish cursor response.
