So what exactly is a tilting mouse? Is it mouse that slides all over the place? Well not quite, the tilting mouse is more a way to describe the ergonomics of the design and the movement you get from the motion wheel. This is the mouse my mum uses on one of her PCs and I have had several go's with it now and gotten to grips with it. I say gotten to grips, there is not much to get to grips with here, as it is a very straight forward piece of machinery.
You can by the mouse online for a mere six to seven pounds. This is a good price for a mouse, as the ones that I have all cost circa fifteen pounds. I was initially dubious that Toshiba only made stereos, but I then did some investigating and discovered they dabbled with PC accessories too.
Run through any USB port, the mouse is easily set up and has a generous enough cable giving you ample reach on the desk to work with it. The wiring is neat and does not kink and this aids the movement of the mouse. The movement of the mouse is fluid and accurate and there is no catch up time, which I though might be the case with this cheaper offering.
The shape and feel is great in the hand and the smooth body has a curvy allure to it which offers comfort during longer periods of work. Your wrist benefits from this in the long-run. Toshiba have integrated a jog wheel to aid the scrolling , as well as the standard two buttons, which are light and effortless to touch.
There is little to fault here, the set-up is easy, the effectiveness and performance is very good and reliable, even when whizzing the mouse at speed over the mat. My mum has had hers for a few months and it continues to perform well, so this seems like a safe and good value buy to me.
I've had my laptop for about four years now and around two years ago the mouse pad started to become difficult to operate. I was getting frustrated by this so I decided to invest in a new mouse. I bought the Toshiba Optical Tilt-Wheel Mouse without knowing much about the (this was before I discovered Dooyoo), so was this a decent purchase?
When I first started looking for a mouse I wanted to make sure I bought one that had been produced by a brand I trusted - I've always found Toshiba reliable so I was happy to buy something from its range. Also, call me a cheap skate, but I didn't want to spend much on my new mouse, I had seen them on sale for around £20, but this particular model was priced at £6.99 which seemed very reasonable.
The mouse itself is very light and it's made of black and silver plastic. I think the finish is very smooth - which is good when it comes to style - but practically it has caused the mouse slip out of my hand on more than one occasion!
Connecting the mouse to my laptop was ridiculously easy, I literally just plugged it into a USB port and away I went, my computer instantly recognised it. This isn't a wireless mouse, its connected to the computer via a wire, but I don't think this is a problem, in fact I think it's a plus for me, because I use the laptop all over the house so if the mouse was wireless then I'd probably lose it.
The mouse flies around the screen and it is so easy to operate. I was actually quite surprised by the quality because I am used to using an old mouse that was produced during the nineties at work, and there is no comparison between the two products - the Toshiba Optical Tilt-Wheel Mouse is top quality!
I also like the having a tilt wheel on the mouse because this allows me to scroll up and down a computer page quickly and easily.
I often use my laptop on my knee, so I operate the mouse on a variety of surfaces, sometimes on the laptop itself, other times on the arm of the sofa and even on my knee - but it doesn't matter where I operate this mouse from, because it works perfectly.
Since I've had this mouse I've probably dropped it about thirty times (at least), but *touch wood* my clumsiness hasn't affected the mouse's performance.
I am really pleased that I made this purchase because it does everything that I want, to be honest I can't fault it. The Toshiba Optical Tilt-Wheel Mouse is reliable, effective, well priced and it's yet to let me down. Five stars!
