Customer Review

on November 18, 2011
---------------Revised: Jan 2013--------------
I have upgraded my rating from 3 stars to 4 stars. After a year of use, the mouse is still functioning well and I have gotten used to its quarks. Its battery life is still excellent. It is quite helpful as an auxillary device (alongside another mouse), especially for power point. I still have to use another mouse to accomplish precision tasks which this mouse does not do well.

---------------Original Post--------------
Lacks full-functionality of a regular mouse.

DO NOT BE FOOLED. Silver buttons are NOT a left and right mouse button. Left silver button is a scroll lock.

Where is the left mouse button? You have to use the large black pad, which doubles as both a left mouse button and as a mouse tracking pad. This makes it difficult to click without changing the mouse's position. Double clicking? Only with a lot of practice and concentration... so if you need precision (menus...) this mouse will frustrate you continuously.

Shame that such a nice design is marginalized by cheap software and lack of user configurability. Close, but still so far away.

(How I would configure the device- I would (1) configure the left silver button to be a left mouse button, (2) assign the scroll button to the mouse pad, and (3) disable the drag feature... That would increase the functionality of the device.).

As it is now, it works well as a 2nd mouse... but not well enough to get rid of the other one.

Disadvantages:
-Low functionality of Main mouse button (Left click)
.....Single clicking repositions mouse
.....Double clicking... nearly impossible
-LOW positional accuracy of mouse pointer
-Inadequate software
.....the software does not changing mouse configuration
.....the software is VERY slow to release from a "click and hold"
........the click to drag function has a serious time delay issue

Advantages:
-Plug n play- computer immediately recognized device w/o software installation
....(although advanced features require the software)
-works well for some tasks
....(which do not require precision, or double clicking)
-light, comfortable design
-OK battery life
