We recently came into the market for a new mouse after our niece threw our current wireless mouse against the wall.
We opted for something we had seen get rave reviews on Dooyoo and for the reliability of a known brand and bought the Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 from Amazon for £11.30.
When it arrived it came in a snazzy red box, initial impressions were that it looked good with a nice silver and black layout and felt comfortable in the the hand. I was initially very happy as I though it had also come with a wired mouse in case our niece came vandalising the PC again, unfortunately that turned out to be the sensor which you plug into the USB section of your computer to communicate with the wireless mouse.
Once you have plugged that in, placed two AA batteries into the mouse and pushed in the connect button on the bottom of the mouse with a pencil, it is ready to work, it is that simple.
Having used it for a week now, its smooth, works easily and seems to be as good as the Packard Bell original, we haven't had a single problem with it, and it comes with a 6 month guarantee so I am sure it will be fine, and for under £12 I already think it is brilliant value.
It looks brilliant, has a cool finish, feels nice and contoured in your hand, is understated and classy rather than trying to be too many things and is good value. It took literally a minute to set up, has worked perfectly from its 50cm distance from the pc and does everything i've asked of it thus far.
I have had this mouse for about 3 years now, I bought it from Tesco for twenty pounds and im sure it can be found even cheaper now! It has an amazing wireless range and is light, non-sticky and very easy to use; you literally just plug the Usb receiver into your computer, wait a couple of seconds... and your off! You have a wireless mouse, great for use with Desktop computers, Laptops and even a Playstation 3! It runs on batteries which is either an advantage or a disadvantage depending on your needs! I however like that it runs on batteries because its then an instantaneous quick fix if it runs out of power! You dont have to wait for it to charge then! So whether you are a businessman on a trip and you need a mouse for more accurate clicking or just someone who owns a computer, this is a great mouse for you!
