I have owned this mouse for about eight months now and it cost me £4.99 from PC World and it's still working well. You can get them on Amazon for 99p which is a real bargain but at the time I needed it and just bought the cheapest wired mouse that was on offer.
I'm not really that into technology and so having a wireless mouse didn't really bother me, what did bother me was the fact that my mouse had broke and that I couldn't browse the net, so the first affordable mouse that I saw was bought and this is the one that caught my eye.
For the money I paid it has worked out to be great value.
The mouse plugs into the back of my computer into one of the USB ports, it is a plug and play device so your computer will just find it as soon as you plug it in and away you go to use it, there is no disc or anything to go with it so it's easy for anyone to install.
The shape of it fits nicely in the hand and it has two click buttons at the top with a scroll wheel in the middle of the click buttons. The scroll wheel lights up red when you are using the mouse and it glides nicely over a mouse mat. I hate it when your trying to browse and the arrow on the screen from ther mouse gets frozen due to the mouse not gliding properly on the mat.
This works well and I'm still very happy with it.
The only thing that has happened to this mouse is that it has been used daily for hours at a time and has rubbed off some of the silver coating where you rest your hand as well as whare you grip the mouse at the sides while moving it around the mouse mat, apart from that everything about it still works good.
The lead is a good length and is thin so you don't have to keep getting it in the way and it has PC Line written on the top in silver. It can be used on a PC or a laptop I have used it on both as I started off on the computer and it took me ages to get used to using a laptop when browsing the net so I used to plug this in and use the mouse.
I eventually will upgrade to a wireless mouse but while this one is still going strong I really don't see the need for buying a new mouse.
Excellent value for money and hard wearing product, highly recommended by me.
This PC Line mouse is, without a doubt, the best mouse I have ever used (and I've used a lot). The reason I like this mouse so much is largely down to it's size. It is rounded and slightly smaller than most so it fits perfectly in your hand and is very comfortable to use for a long time. It's just as comfortable to use whether you use you are right or left handed unlike some mice.
I also like the look of the mouse. It is black on top with silver around the sides and around the scroll wheel making it look quite smart. As it is a dull black it stays looking smart. On mine the only sign of use on the top is the fact that the PC Line logo is disappearing. Sadly I can't say the same for the side of the mouse which is now going black. Still, I do use the mouse a lot and it has took a long time for the silver to start coming off. As long as the mouse still works I don't see this as an issue.
It is an optical mouse so you don't have to worry about the ball not moving properly or needing cleaning. I've never had any problems with this mouse, it always moves smoothly. Plus it is 800 DPI (Dots Per Inch) meaning that it is more precise - great for daily use as well as gaming.
This is a USB mouse, which means you can simply plug it into the USB port in your computer and start using it. The wire is long and thin so it should easily reach from your computer to the desk. I have my computer on the floor and the mouse wire goes up the back of the desk and across it and I've not had a problem with it not reaching even when I have moved my computer. Due to the wire being so thin it means even with all the cables at the back of my computer the mouse wire hardly ever gets caught.
It has 3 buttons and a scroll wheel like most mice. It doesn't have any extra features, but for those who just want an ordinary mouse that works well this does the job perfectly.
If you have kids you may be wondering if this mouse is suitable and whether it will last. Due to its size I'd say this is a great mouse for kids. As for whether it will last, well I've moved my computer unit and desk around a fair bit and the mouse has been thrown around quite a lot and has had many things thrown on top of it too, but there is no damage to it and it still works fine.
So how much is this fantastic mouse? Well, you can get it from Amazon for about £7 (including postage).
I've had this mouse along time and still really like it. It still works as well and I'd certainly consider buying this mouse again if it did stop working. Whether you are a gamer, use programs like Photoshop or just use it for surfing the Internet, this mouse is one to consider. This is a mouse that I highly recommend.
