Reliable basic mouse!
by Jim on 12/9/2011
Got this on special for $9.99 for use with my laptop.
This mouse is fantastic for the price (even if you pay a dollar or two more than I did). It doesn't have any special buttons, just the basic left- and right-click and a scroll wheel, but 99% of the time I don't use other buttons anyway (or I accidentally click them on mouses that have them, and it annoys me!)
The mouse is plug-and-play on almost any Windows machine you'll encounter. I used it when I formatted an old Dell from 2005 and installed Windows XP with no service packs, and the mouse was still recognized and installed with no connection to the internet! The same happened putting Windows Server 2008 on an old P4 machine, and of course it works fine with Win7 machines.
I'm not familiar with the "blue" technology this mouse uses, but it does indeed work on almost any surface. I've used it on my glossy finished kitchen table, as well as my carpet/couch cushions in front of the TV -- no issues!
BOTTOM LINE: Highly recommended. Exceptional build and performance at a great price.
