I've always used a wired mouse in the past and finally got my first wireless mouse and I am so happy I got it. It's made using the computer so much easier not being tethered by a cord, but this brand / model I have has it's pluses and minuses.

On the plus side :

* It's PC / Mac compatible, desktop or laptop/netbook

* It's a wireless laser mobile mouse with a precession 20x tracking laser

* It comes with a storable usb receiver and is equip with 5 buttons

* There is a low battery indicator and it also has a auto battery saver sleep mode

* Syncing and setting up is very easy. No additional software is required, instructions are simple to follow and you just plug it in your ready to go.

* The shape of the mouse is fairly ergonomic and fits nicely in my hand

The minus side :

* For a laser mouse, it doesn't glide as well as expected. So for this one you need a flat

hard surface, mouse pads only assists in it's inability to move.

* The indentation on the bottom of the mouse (the storage area for the usb receiver) had a flimsy little tab that helped to hold it in place. Shortly after I got it the tab broke off and now it will no longer hold the receiver to store it with the mouse. Which I don't mind so much, but it does aide in the possibility of the usb receiver being lost.

* It takes 2 AAA batteries, and even though the auto battery saver mode and the low battery indicator work quite well, it does tend to drain batteries fairly quickly.

* Even though the mouse does fit my hand well, someone with a larger sized hand might find it awkward to use.

So over all, for Swiss Gear, this is a fairly good mouse. Would I get another one in the future? Yes if they made some improvements in it. So if you don't mind some of the things I've mentioned here, this really isn't too bad and I recommend it as a "starter" wireless for those of you who have never own one before.
