      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good budget conscious purchase

      In my work I use pcs a lot so I like to be comfortable with the equipment I am using. If like me you have suffered the frustration of a mouse that just doesn't want to go where you want it you will appreciate the value of having a reliable one such as the Dell Optical Mouse.

      Comfortable fit

      The dell optical mouse looks as it does it the image. It is smooth curved black plastic with right and left click at the top of the mouse and a wheel in the top centre. I find it fits nicely into my hand and is very comfortable to use. I never feel I am straining my hand and in general I can forgot it is there as it is so comfortable I don't consciously think about it. I like the ability to scroll quickly so I appreciate the wheel.

      Reliability
      Having a reliable mouse is something you probably don't think about unless you have had the misfortune of using an unreliable one which can make completing the simplest of tasks a major headache. This mouse is optical so don't have to periodically take it apart to clean out fluff that has been caught in it nor resort to the shaking of the mouse to get it working.

      Use

      I find that this mouse works well. It is easy to install as it uses a USB so you can plug in and go. It comes with a fairly long lead which is useful but it has on occasion become tangled which has affected the mouse's capabilities. I am pleased to say that once the lead was unknotted the problems resolved themselves. It is easy to click to get left and right buttons menus. The mouse also takes well to some rough treatment and therefore is quite durable.

      Overall
      At a price bracket of around £10 it is hard to beat for value for money. There are more expensive mouse but this does what I want for a good budget conscious price so I am very happy with the purchase.

      Disadvantages

      This mouse is extremely simple but really delivers on the important things.

      I have this mouse at work so spend approximately 8 hours a day using it and I absolutely love its simplicity. The market is flooded with hundreds of mice that all have different buttons that do different 'helpful' things but to me, there is no need. I have yet to find an expensive mouse that is comfortable and doesn't come with a bunch of buttons I don't need. Anyway, on to this Dell mouse.

      This is a USB mouse with an optical lens rather than a mouse ball which is great as it rarely gets clogged up with dirt - I probably clean it once every month or two. I have been delighted within its precision, too. I've found some mice that, after significant use, start to shake on your screen and can make clicking buttons more difficult than it should be. This mouse heads to exactly where you'd expect it to and remains locked in place on your screen.

      The USB cable is also great because when I trialed a battery powered mouse I was always changing the batteries. This may not be the case anymore but, for me, the thin cable is not an issue at all. The cable is sufficiently long to reach the back of the computer, be stowed out of the way and it still never feel like you're pulling against it.

      The mouse is a great, comfortable shape and can be used for hours on end without discomfort. The two buttons are part of the 'top layer' of the mouse so it doesn't like your fingers are resting on a button at all. They are delightfully easy to press too. The middle button, or scroll wheel, is good too. The friction in it is just right and as with the other two buttons, depressing it is easy.

      Overall, I'm delighted with this mouse. I'm also amazed about how cheap it is and will now be buying one for my home PC!

      Great little mouse

      **Introduction**

      Most people have a Computer nowadays and we all have a Mouse. Some like to go for expensive mice that have several buttons for gaming but for most things you'll use the Computer for you will just need a functional mouse which does the job reliably and provides smooth movement. I bought a new Computer a few months ago and it included a Mouse as usual. It was easy to setup and fitted in with the Dell style. You can use the mouse with your PC or Laptop via a simple usb connection. You can find this mouse very cheaply online for only a couple of pounds including postage and packing.

      **Using It**

      This mouse is extremely easy to use and glides along the desktop well. It's very functional and the range of features whilst not huge does the job well. The scroll button works well and you can move the mouse about without losing any functionality or restricted movement. It can be used by right or left handed people as it's rather easy to use with both hands. It's quick and very easy to move around which makes your computing experience seamless and much easier. I have never had any problems using this mouse and it's wire is fairly long so you shouldn't need to sit in an unnatural position when using your mouse on your computer. Both large buttons are easy to use too which makes the product better all round.

      **Overall**

      This is an excellent mouse which is available so cheaply which makes it a great option. If you have a Dell PC you might have this Mouse. It's a reliable and easy to use product which is no frills and does the job it's designed for. It feels good in your hand and is easy to move around to where you want it to be. So all round this is a very solid product that offers reliability, ease of use and value for money. I would recommend this little mouse if you are looking for a cheap one for a PC or Laptop. It just does the job on a budget. Good product.
