      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I have used this mouse now for about half a year since getting my Vaio. As the Sony mice were way too overpriced, I looked elsewhere. I found it on Amazon, but wanted the special edition one (the one in the picture) which is black and red.

      The mouse is very attractive with a nice warm red glow where the optical sensor bit is. I especially like it when the light shines brighter when the mouse is moved. The mouse is very small but under normal use it is fine and nicely designed. As I am left handed, this mouse works well, unlike some others which are designed for right hand use only. It is also very well built, I have knocked it about a fair few times and it is still going strong.

      The mouse is very sensitive, but not in a bad way. I suppose it is designed like this as it is a notebook mouse. It can be used on virtually any surface, desk, paper, on my leg, on my bed even! It is a lot better than most other optical mice I have used. One thing I have noticed is that it doesn't like certain colours of surfaces. If you are using it on one of these colours, then the pointer tends to 'jump' accross the screen.

      There are some disadvantages though. As I have relatively large hands, it can sometimes get uncomfortable when using for a long time. This really isn't a huge problem though. I have evn heard that there are people who use this mouse for their desktops as it is that good. Of course, you will need a USB extension cable as the cable with this is very short. However, it is the perfect length when used with a laptop. The mouse uses standard USB connections, and I don't think you can use it with an adaptor.

      This is a quality piece of equipment and well worth the price. If you do a lot of travelling, have a notebook, or looking for a small optical mouse then this is the answer.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Well what can I say? I have used this mouse now for about three months and have been very impressed. As this mouse is meant to be used with a Notebook or Laptop it is of course small.

        However the ergonomics cannot be faulted, I have large hands and use my Laptop all day every at work and do not suffer from any aches or pains from using this mouse.

        It provides a very smooth movement action, the roller is situated in the just the right position to scroll through endless pages of Word documents and both left and right buttons are of a good size so you do not press the wrong one inadvertently.

        All in all I cannot fault this mouse which is why my workplace now purchases one for every one of its Laptop users.

        The only disadvantage I can think of which is not specific to this mouse but to all optical mice is the price.

        If you have a different opinion or would like to substantiate mine, please do.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I recently purchased a pair of these, and have had no problems with either of them. Technically speaking, this mouse is a nice piece of kit. It's optical, so there's no mechanical parts to clog with dirt, and degrade etc, which also means it's a very accurate pointing device. Since if you're buying this mouse, you're probably going to use it with your laptop, it's important that it works on a multitude of surfaces. I've used this mouse on several sufraces, including some semi-reflective ones, and I've had little trouble with it. Even on (some) glossy surfaces, the mouse remains functional. The mouse connects to your laptop (or indeed PC) via a USB connection, which means provising your laptop isn't more than a couple of years old, you're going to be able to use this. Ergonomically speaking, the mouse is fairly comfortable to use. I say fairly, but that's because I've been used to using full size mice, even wtih a laptop. I will say that a smaller mouse such as this takes a little getting used to, but that's not a problem. One downside though, I really don't like the colours they've chosen, but that's down to personal preferance. Overall, a nice mouse, even if it's a little on the expensive side.
