The GE Branded laser mouse functions flawlessly on more surfaces than optical mice regardless of texture- smooth, rough or even glossy. Enhanced laser technology delivers 4 times the precision of traditional optical mice, making it ideal for gaming or graphic design. The 1600 dpi resolution allows the mouse to respond to any movement providing improved precision, ease in navigation, and superior control.
I just received it after the shortest shipping time ever, less then 1 day, and for a great price ($9.72 + $5.49 shipping). I was a little weary about this mouse since no reviews here and other sites i found reviews didn't talk it up. But i'm super happy with this mouse and will totally enjoy it for years to come. OVERVIEW ~~~~~~~~ I opened the package, easy with a sharp pocket knife, just be careful. The USB wireless receiver has one of the longest cords I've seen which i like having the flexibility to put it wherever. The mouse came with 2 AA batteries which is nice even though in the future i will use my own rechargeable batteries. The mouse also has an on/off switch, and a light to let you know it has power. The shape of the mouse looks a little weird but it fits right hands perfectly and also left hands and slight grip of the mouse is perfect for any type of hand even sweaty ones. I plugged it into a PC running Windows XP and a PC running Windows 7 and it didn't even need to install drivers, it just worked when i pushed the link button on the mouse and the wireless receiver. Pros ~~~~ -No Driver Installation -Great Feel -Looks Great -Has Extra buttons that don't need programming for the Internet -Free Batteries -Works Perfectly -Changing mouse speed done easily after software on disc is installed (Installed on Windows 7 fine even though disk does not say it supports it). Just right-click the mouse icon added in the status bar and click "Active Mouse Properties" Cons ~~~~ -When you change speed for this mouse it slows my other mouse speed to a crawl (not big deal but still a con) OTHER COMMENTS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have yet to try the buttons for other uses and probably won't.
The mouse stopped working in less than 2 weeks. I will avoid a GE mouse in the future.
