Good wireless mouse but let down by a couple of niggles
This mouse's USB receiver also functions as a 1GB memory key. It's also supplied with a cleverly detachable cable so it can be recharged while in use as a wired mouse.
The mouse certainly looks the part with sweeping lines and aluminium buttons, but its stunted shape means users with larger hands will find it difficult to hold. It is also moulded for a right hand, so left-handed users won't be happy.
The receiver is nearly as long as the mouse itself, making it slightly bulky, but it does mean you don't have to carry a USB memory key as well. It works over Bluetooth or standard RF wireless but annoyingly, it's only possible to use the memory if the mouse is connected over Bluetooth or the wire - if it's in RF mode, the memory can't be used.
The mouse does feel sturdy and the laser sensor means the pointer glides smoothly and accurately. The four-way scroll wheel is smooth and effective, but the position of the two programmable buttons under the user's thumb means it's too easily to press them by accident. We also found that both the mouse and receiver are too chunky to be easily transportable, which with the other flaws makes the mouse's price seem high.

Overall The mouse is flexible and works well, but its flaws and its price make it impractical.
