This mouse is currently on sale for £10 on Amazon.co.uk… Yep, £10 for a wireless mouse which has multiple dpi switch, 6 buttons, 10 metre range and an 18 month battery life (obviously the battery life will depend on the quality of battery you install and how much you use it).
The mouse is just the right size (in fact it’s a normal mouse size, i hate those tiny portable mice). When you open the box all you need to do is put an AA battery in the mouse (battery not included) and plug the USB into a port on your computer. Drivers are installed automatically and in a matter of half a minute you’re good to start using it.
The USB is small enough that it fits into a handy receptacle in the base of the mouse, the only concern I have with this is it doesn’t quite seem snug enough that I’ll not worry about it coming loose and losing it. I would have liked this to be a bit of a tighter fit or to have some form of lock to keep it in place when not in use. This is especially prevalent for me as I already have a wired Anker mouse at my desk: Anker® High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse with 8000 DPI, 9 Programmable Button, Weight Tuning Cartridge, Omron Micro Switches, so this wireless mouse is going to be kept in my laptop bag ready to be used when on the road.
Other than that it feels great in the hand and to use. It glides effortlessly over most surfaces and the 10 metre range is a good estimate.
If you are after a wireless mouse and you don’t want to spend too much then this really is a great bargain. Seriously, grab it quick before Anker notice and bump the price up 🙂
