I tried this using a desktop PC running Windows Vista and a laptop running Windows 7.
Setup was fairly simple. Plug the very tiny wireless USB adaptor in, put batteries into the mouse, turn the on switch on the mouse on. The driver self-loads. Using your Control Panel, find your mouse settings and adjust the speed you'd like the mouse to scroll, move across the page and set your double click speed. You'd better set this because otherwise you'll never even see the mouse indicator. It moves at warp speed.
The right click and left click areas of the mouse are at the far top left and right of the mouse and I found are best hit right on the edge of the mouse. The scroll "wheel" is operated by one finger drawn right up and down the center of the mouse - at least that's the idea. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It may depend on how oily your finger is, if you hit the center of the mouse directly, if you've depressed one of the right or left buttons (sometimes the mouse "likes" it, sometimes it doesn't). It's unpredictable, working about 75% of the time and either scrolling wildly or very slowly. You might as well use the scroll bar in your browser.
The page forward is controlled by stroking two fingers upward the center of the mouse. Don't bother. It never worked in several days of constant testing. The page back works by doing the opposite, stroking two fingers down the center.Read more ›
The mouse itself is rather sleek on the top face and essentially feels like one single piece. It does have a very low profile, so if you use a mouse a lot during your day you may find it to be cramping on your hands after several hours of work, especially if you have a wrist rest that sets up high. A look on the underside of the mouse reveals a 2 x AA battery compartment (batteries were included in mine), an on-off switch, a connect button, the optical tracking sensor, and a slot to put your small USB receiver. The USB receiver barely sticks out of your computer when inserted. For my two Vista machines, the drivers automatically loaded when I inserted the receiver. There was no software to download. After the drivers loaded I just hit the connect button and the mouse was working. The installation was as easy as possible.
As far as operation goes, well, it works like a typical mouse ok. I found the tracking to only be acceptable, not stellar. Left clicks were not a problem. However, all other secondary mouse functions were subpar. Right clicks only work when you really hit the upper right corner of the mouse, and probably only worked 80% of the time. Additionally, I felt a 1 second lag whenever I tried to get a menu from a right click to show up. As far as the scrolling goes, I got the Verbatim mouse to scroll down consistently, but scrolling up was a bit of a hit-or-miss adventure. What blatantly did not work, though, was the two finger operations. Going back and forth in Internet Explorer or Firefox by using the two finger swipe down never worked.Read more ›
Let's start with the BAD:
- This mouse simply does not work the way it's supposed to. The smooth top surface is supposed to track your finger motion for scrolling on pages. Some finger movements are supposed to flip forward/backward through web pages. Likewise in a photo viewer. Sounds great, but I can only get it to do what I want about 10 percent of the time. Using one finger for scrolling usually works, but there's usually some lag and the motion is a bit choppy. I've completely given up on any of the two finger commands. At one point, I was able to get it to flip back and forth through my web browsing history (though inconsistently), but that no longer seems to work (I use Firefox). In a photo viewer, the two finger movement sometimes flips through the photos, but sometimes it zooms in and out. It is ridiculously unpredictable! Actually, it usually just doesn't do anything.
- There is a very small sweet spot for the right-click button. While this function is supposed to be activated when any part of the right side is pressed, it's simply not true. The right-click only functions when a very specific spot is hit. If I click outside of that sweet spot, it actually functions like a left-click! This is very very frustrating!
- The surface is glossy. This means that it's a fingerprint magnet. After using it for a few minutes, it's no longer attractive.Read more ›

I have had it for 3 years and no real problems. The touch can run away from time to time. It's not perfect but price is good.Published 4 months ago by John hess
