I bought one of these a few weeks ago - the usb receiver is tiny (ace for netbooks / laptops) and the mouse has a low profile (not too bulky for a netbook case) and is very responsive. In fact, I find it more responsive than my more expensive desktop mouse.

I'm on my first set of batteries so don't know how long they'll last - Play.com's description only states 'Long battery life'. Only niggle I have with the mouse, and it could be a unit specific problem, it didn't want to work with rechargeable batteries for some reason, have had to use non-rechargeable ones.

EDIT: The black version is temporarily out of stock, but other colours are available. I ordered a black one when it was out of stock a while ago and it took about a week to come back into stock.

good deal, if it's aaa batteries it takes then jessops have 4 energiser for 50p right now :)
#2
Looks good, I need a cheapo wireless mouse due to a terrible habit of dropping them on the floor, into drinks etc...:oops: so this could do the trick, thanks!
#3
Good price for a mini reciever mouse, thanks.:thumbsup:

What controls are on this, i can see the main scroll wheel but what about forward and back etc, please give as much detail/specs etc, cheers.:thumbsup:
My wireless trust mouse is quite good also has a built in battery save function so when not in use for more than 30secs , saves on the battery life, but the usb wireless dongle is a bit flimsy and sticks out, which can get knocked!
#5
Looks the biz and works fine, the protrusion out of the usb port from the receiver is negligible.

Basic mouse functions with a scroll wheel, no doubt it can be customised from the software at Saitek.com/downloads, no software and powered by x2 "AAA" batteries (states 6 month of average use). Its also backed up by a 2year warranty (receipt from purchase required on any claim)...so all in all for the price its a steal imo.

Initially I was disappointed to note there was no place to store the receiver in the mouse, the last two wireless mice bought with full size usb receivers stored away nicely under the mouse itself, hence the surprise something so miniscule couldn't be accomodated...but having thought about it the answers staring me in the face, why would you want to to remove the receiver from the netbook/laptop :roll:

Addition nfo, yes it can be put into power save mode simply by holding in the small button on the underside for 3 seconds, at this pount the light goes blue and powers off.....resuming is just a single press and off you trot. Looks good in the black, has a low profile (akin to a flattish pebble), has a nice feel to it to boot.

Hope that helps :thumbsup:

wtf 2cm

I'd forgotten I posted about this until it popped up on the hot page!

I now have two of these mice - bargain at the price!

dandoc - it has a really low profile. Ace for not making too much of a bump in a netbook case.

This might do the trick.


As you can see, it's so low profile you can stow it away in your PCMCIA or ExpressCard Slot ;)

According to the user manual IT IS possible to place the receiver inside the mouse.

Waoh! it didn't want to work with rechargeable batteries for some reason, have had to use non-rechargeable ones. - thats not good! It'll end up costing me more in batteries over time!!! Could someone please check if it does before I place my order.

Are you sure it's more responsive and not simply faster? Pointer speed is primarily determined by the mouse with the control in the operating system simply modifying the mouse's speed rather than setting it to a speed.

A lot of the cheaper mice use high DPI sensors which makes them fast and lets you throw the pointer across the screen at the flick of a wrist but a fast pointer does make it harder to be precise and also means you use your wrist more instead of your arm in general use, I don't know if that makes any different RSI-wise.

You're right! When I first bought one, I looked for a place for the tiny receiver to fit inside the mouse and couldn't find a slot. Just tried out the instructions from the link - there's a place inside the battery compartment for the receiver. Not sure I'd want to actually store the receiver though - it sits in the USB slot and hardly pokes out more than a half a centimetre.

Thanks for info though, appreciated.

I'm not a mouse expert! It just works really well for me, but I'm not a gamer and I don't work with software that requires high accuracy with a mouse.

If you have one could you please check if it can take rechargeabe batteries? If it can't its pretty much useless for me as I have plenty of uniross rechargeable batteries.

I just bought a wireless one from Argos ... £6.49 odd or round there. Works very well so far and is small enough too...

Did it have a mini / nano receiver?

Unconvinced, when the microsoft notebook mouse is about £3 more in most shops ... ok so the usb dongle isn't tiny, but the mouse is brilliant.

Would you be kind enough to post a link to where I can buy it for £3?
#21
alkaline batteries operate @ 1.5v
Recharageables operate @ 1.2v

Over 2 batteries - thats over 0.5v difference which could (probably actually!) be the cause of you having to use 'normal' batteries.

Quote from wikipedia [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rechargeable_battery ]

[COLOR="Indigo"]Also note that most NiMH AA or AAA batteries rate their cells at 1.2 volts. However, this is not a problem in most devices because alkaline batteries drop in voltage as the energy is depleted. Most devices will still operate with a voltage between 0.9 and 1.1 volts.[/COLOR]

Hope this helps!

Never thought to look inside as any other usb mouse I've had like the Ms Notebook mouse all fit into the base :roll:

If battery life is a concern, the Ms notebook 4000 I have takes a single battery and last for yonks

I've got both, the Ms Notebook 4000 is my fav, but the Saitek was bought with the mini usb receiver in mind for a Samsung netbook.

You can get the Ms Notebook 4000 for the same as the Saitek £11.99 from fleabay, Item number: 150358941782 free P&P, it's OEM, ie no disc or cardboard wrapping, no big deal you just d/l the drivers anyway, both my Ms Notebook 4000 mice were bought as OEM.

How do they compare size wise? which one is smaller MS or Saitek?
#29
I also own a MS Notebook 4000mouse - the mouse itself is better than the Saitek, but the Saitek has three pluses over the 4000 - the tiny receiver, much wider range link with the receiver and the low profile. I'd go for the Saitek if you have a netbook/laptop that is moved around a lot and the 4000 if it's to sit on a desk.

OK - i'm getting it for a netbook, so this will do fine. But if it's sat at dekstop all the time, rather get a KB & mouse combo.

The Saitek is the smaller of the two although the footprint of each arent a million miles apart.

The bigger size of the Ms Notebook 4000 is taken up in height, the plus being a better feel in your hand.

I have 2 Ms Notebook 4000 mice, 1 goes with the laptop, the other sits permanent at the main comp, the Saitek goes with the Samsung netbook.

The Ms Notebook has a few more key functions that Saitek doesn't have and seems to work fine on most surfaces, the Saitek is more surface picky.
#32
Nice I was looking at the Logitech offerings on ebuyer last night but this is about £13 cheaper, for me it is all about the nano USB receiver for when I travel with the netbook.

Out of stock but ordered cheers OP

It's not expired the pink one is still in stock.

Also anyone else having problems with this mouse?

It keeps stopping and starting on my NC10 - in windows, in openSUSE it works fine. Very strange.

Using mine on the Samsung NC10, works fine, the OS on it is Xp, I downloaded the driver for it from the Satek site at the onset so dunno if it would've exhibited your problems had I not.

For me, Saitek mouse + Samsung NC10 Xp = :thumbsup:

Hope you get sorted
#39
To second 'rash' why the expired tag?

pink still available
