Dell Optical USB Mouse with Wheel
Advantages: works great, long wire, fits my hand brilliantly
Disadvantages: none for me
When my husband and I split up I inherited the PC as he had a laptop. The PC was a decent set up though as my husband works in IT and is pretty much a computer geek. The mouse that I inherited was the Dell optical usb mouse and I am guessing that this was included in the package my husband created on the dell website when he ordered the PC.
The Dell optical usb mouse is nothing particularly special to look at compared to some of these really funky designs that seem to be around now. It is a silvery grey in colour with silver right and left buttons. The mouse features the Dell logo so you are in no doubt as to where the product is from! The mouse also features a scroller wheel between the two buttons at the top.
The mouse was very easy to install to the computer as you literally just plug it into the usb drive on your computer and you are ready to go. The mouse features quite a long wire which is great for me as the usb drive I use for the mouse is on the back of the computer tower and the mouse then needs to come from behind there, through my computer desk and still allow me to move it around. I have plenty of space to move the mouse around and I can use it on my pull out keyboard drawer or even lift it out and put it on the top of the desk and still be able to move it around.
I have quite small hands and this particular mouse fits my hand perfectly so I am not sure how useful a man with big hands would find this mouse; he may find that it is too small. For me though it really is perfect, I can click the buttons with ease and can also use the scroller wheel as well. I have had this mouse for a few years now and haven't had any problems with it at all. The buttons respond well to touch and I have also found that the scroller wheel responds well and makes it easy for me to read long documents on the computer.
The mouse moves well around the screen as you move it on your desk and you do not need to have a mouse mat with this one which is nice as I am quite limited for space on my small desk and I am not sure I could fit a mouse mat on there! One thing I would note is that my desk does get quite "powdery" where I move the mouse around, but I think this is more to do with my desk not being that great, and of course if I did have a mouse mat this wouldn't happen!
All in all I am really pleased with this mouse and I cannot fault it at all. It has lasted really well and is not showing any signs that it may break any time soon despite the fact that I use my computer every single day for significant periods of time. I would certainly recommend this mouse and would give it a full five stars.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: A great mouse
