I really liked this mouse, but then after 6 months (with limited use) it just quit working. It's just too much money to pay for something that doesn't even last a 6 months.

Item was just as described. I would recommend ordering from this seller to anyone. I would of given 5 stars but no disc was included. I thought i read it was included but not 100% sure. If not for my lack of memory I would have given 5 stars.
To Seller; If disc was not mentioned in description, My apologies Good Sir.

I love the "3d" or air aspect of this mouse. It's great for using it when there isn't a stable flat surface nearby.

But it's too small for me to use as a normal mouse and when used that way I notice it lags or maybe stutters frequently.
By this I mean it frequently stops responding for a few seconds at a time when I'm using it like a normal mouse.
The other serious drawback is the "dongle" (not real a dongle since it doesn't hang out, it's more of a stick than a dongle)
I'm always worried that when I have the dongle in the side of my laptop that I might hit against something to set the laptop down somewhere that will bend it out of the USB port.
It's too bad there isn't an up-to-date blue-tooth version of this

PROS:
can be used anywhere, so you don't need a flat mouse-worthy surface to use a mouse
uses normal batteries so when they get low or die you just swap batteries instead
(as opposed to having to stop using it while it recharges)

CONS:
Too small for a man with about normal sized hands to use it as a normal mouse
the battery cover is tough to take off and I keep worrying about either stripping the rubber off the cover or breaking off on of the plastic hooks
stops responding frequently, for a few seconds only, when used as a normal mouse
still relies on a long stick/dongle so there's the worry about breaking a laptop's usb port when moving the laptop
more than a little too expensive for a mouse

even with the cons though I find I use this almost daily, BUT only at home when using a laptop in bad or on a sofa,
I almost NEVER use it when away from home because it's too small to use as a normal mouse. So really it's not a dual purpose air+normal mouse
it's a single purpose air only mouse

This mouse has lasted me for a few years and still going strong.

Order Place: December 30, 2009 Order Total: $14.99 This was copied from my buy.com account.

The paint on the plastic is wearing off and the rubber on the battery cover came off, well my son pealed it a little and I took it totally off.

I only have one dislike about it. I bought four AAA rechargeable batteries for this because it likes to eat them in a week or two, counts on how much I use it. With the other set of AAA's I just swap them out and keep on going.

I have some wide hand and I love how it fits in the middle of my palm. It took a little bit to learn the air part of it but it is fun to use without having to use a table or anything.

I am thinking about buying another one just in case, but I will wait until this one breaks and I will spend the $70 they want now for it.

The first one I purchased lasted about 6 months before it simply stopped working - not obviously broken in any way - not dropped our otherwise abused - just failed to respond. Kicked myself for not saving the proof-of-purchase, figured it must just be a fluke with my particular device, and bought another because I liked it so much. That new one also died almost precisely 6 months after purchase. Contacted the company (a couple of times) for warranty fulfillment. Eventually received an RMA and mailed back the device. One month later called for followup. No response. Wrote to company and got an e-mail response, which began a long but fruitful process - customer service said the batteries were dead.......maybe they died in the mail :-) They replaced the device anyway :-) and I now have a working device with a warranty. Still love the product...... On a positive note, customer service asked me to send the first one back and they are looking into problems with that one. At least we are in complete agreement that the batteries were not the problem.

Just flat out died, stopped working, i replaced batteries and LED flickered out. Wish they made a durable item, it looks too cheap.

I personnally use these and we have them at the Training Range and another dept is going to get them. Good battery life. Though I do not like having to remove the battery cover so -1 star for that design.

It's not the kind of thing you'd use every day, as I found out - it's for occasional use only - pretty good for controlling a movie on your media pc but no good for emailing/internet/wordprocessing/etc and absolutely rotten for games. And then it broke about 6 months after I got it. Now I need another solution, this isn't the answer to anyone's question....

The Gyration Air Mouse is very challenging (I thought) to learn to use but very convenient to have around. All of our Movie/TV watching is done through computers so a mouse is a necessity in our home. This little gizmo is quite small but totally effective and has never given us any functionality issues, never needed a service call and mouse 1 is two years in use. All of our computers are Window 7 and drivers have not been required outside of what Windows provides. On all machines there is also another wired or wireless mouse and no issues there either.
12/13/2011 Amended Review: After just a little over 3 months use this little mouse decided to short out the right and left click buttons, and the original mouse we had is still working. We can still move around the screen but a lot of good THAT does...NOT! Hmmm, wonder what was changed over the last couple of years. Needless to say, I'm trying to return it and I sure won't be going down this road again. Design flaws really are not good for encouraging brand loyalty!

Great little device. As others have mentioned, not the best ergonomically, but it worked great for my htpc. If you are using this for hours at a time, you'll develop a cramp. Very compact design though. I picked this up early on for a great price with the keyboard. Prices have doubled since then, for the mouse alone.

Loved this until 6 months later when it completely died. New batteries did not help, no signal, no response. I would not recommend this device due to it's short life. Not worth the $$ even if you get this at 1/3 the price.
