Pros: wireless. I hadn't realized how annoying cables are when dealing with my work laptop (which I lug home most nights) until getting the wireless mouse; I'm now thinking about grabbing a wireless keyboard as well (and praying for the day when someone releases a reasonably-priced wireless power supply).
Nano receiver is awesomely small and doesn't get in the way of other USB cables you're plugging into the laptop at all.
Cons: Way, way over-sensitive. I run music software on my machine that's used in live performance, and delicate tweaks can be difficult with this mouse. If you use your laptop for gaming and you don't have the reflexes of a fight pilot, you'll find yourself wanting a less sensitive mouse pretty quick.
Seems a tad on the pricy side for being just a mouse (I paid about the same for the wireless keyboard/mouse combo I use on my desktop), but I'm the kind of person who always buys bargain computer equipment, so YMMV.
Not-quite-cons: Battery life seems shorter than it is with the wireless mouse I have at home (and that one's always on, as opposed to having this one's energy-saver feature).
Would have been nice had the pop-up feature been a tad more adjustable; when fully extended, it's about a sixteenth of an inch too tall for absolute comfort. I found I adapted to this after a couple of days, but still.
Overall: Serviceable, but not for highly detailed work. As long as you're a basic end-user not doing gaming, CAD, or the like, it should suit. And you'll love getting rid of yet another tangled, annoying cable. *** ½
Originally I was using the Verbatim 96992 Easy Riser Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse on our desktop through one of the two front USB ports on the CPU and it worked just fine. I never had any problems with the signal dropping (They are about 3-4 feet away from each other) and the response time was as good as our previous wired laser mouse. More recently though I installed the NZXT IU01 Internal USB Expansion on the same desktop and decided to put the receiver inside the CPU case to free up the outer USB port and so far it's been great.
The "Riser" feature has been of little use to any of us, but for some other reviewers I think they like it. Overall it seems to be a good, reliable product and in fact I like it so much I bought a second one to carry with my laptop. A good price point on this seems to be around $25, but keep an eye out for rebates to sweeten the deal.
A few nice features were the hidden compartment for the little usb laptop plug. This is a great feature so that you don't lose it when you're traveling with your laptop. I also like that you can change the height of the mouse so it gives you a few options.
Overall it's a nice wireless mouse
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.
