There'll be nothing good about it, typical pound shop tat!

Good enough to hang off a couple of Raspberry Pi's I've got squirrelled away

Been using these on my two laptops for months and they're actually good

It's found in Poundworld not Poundland. Even has pound worlds packaging.

REVIEW HERE: … REVIEW HERE: http://www.artiss.co.uk/2012/02/800dpi-precision-optical-mouse


Is this the same mouse? I'm asking as the one in the review was from Poundworld and this one is from Poundland.

I bought this when I lost by mistake my Microsoft 3500 mouse usb receiver, it's ok for the price, until i found wireless mouse from CPC (a month ago in HUKD deals) , only cost 2.50 and I must say is far better then costly Microsoft mouse. Heat added for the price when you don't wanna spend much (until some deal come around)

you musn't be much of a deal hunter then, find another mouse for £1 somewhere else

plenty of stuff out of the £1 shops isn't "tat" as you put it, high price doesn't always equal quality

Repeat after me: ' It works'. 'It's only a pound'. 'I don't have to buy one'. Of course it's hot - just as an emergency back up if nothing else. Repeat again: 'It's only a pound'.

It looks like one of those tiny laptop mice and 800 dpi is insanely slow I would rather pay a few quid more and get something that will last longer and generally be a nice mouse not pay £1 and get this junk.

You obviously have no idea about what those dpi represent.

It will not be slow at all. In fact, most other rated at 2400dpi and so on (that is just the max, not something that you can use) are used at 800 or below on day to day usage.

If these are in Poundland, then not every store has them as I've been in two and neither have them.

It's definitely Poundworld, I've considered buying one but already have a standby mouse or two

I have a corsair m65 mouse I know what I'm talking about I use it at 2300 DPI (it can go up to 8200) and when I go on my brothers pc on his logitech g5 only at 800 DPI it is annoyingly slow compared to my m65 the DPI does matter you obviously don't have a clue that DPI is how far the mouse on your screen moves in comparison to how much you move the mouse hence Dots Per Inch.

Sorry to burst your bubble dude, but DPI refers to how accurately a mouse will detect movement, so for example a smaller mouse movement will be better responded too. 800 DPI won't have much an issue with this. What you are referring to is a "Mickey" - Google it, that is the measurement of how fast a mouse moves.

Its definately in poundworld..not poundland, not bad quality and work perfect... I challenge anyone to find better cheaper... not sure it really is a deal though as i have bought several over last few months along with there pound hdmi cables its just the normal price and a stock item... bigger price tag doesnt always mean better....

Seen them in poundland in Doncaster.

Still I can't see why this is a deal they have always been this price same as the iPad stand, USB cables, HDMI cables etc etc

800 DPI is not enough for the 1080P screen(at least 2000dpi), there is nothing good about it

LOL...not true. People need to learn about dpi... I am using 800 dpi on 1080p, by the way.
Let me ask you one think... how many dpi has your laptop trackpad ? That's right, lot's of laptops with 1080p screens and 800dpi trackpads.

No, you don't. Go to your brother's pc and make these settings:

I agree with MaximusRo.

The DPI (or CPI) is irrelevant as you can change the pointer speed exponentially in the Control Panel.

I'm a A+ and MCSE certified engineer so I DO know what I'm talking about. :-)

hi, Full 1080p screen means 1920x1080 , most laptop screen is less than 1400x900, 800dpi is enough for this.
But if you use the Retina Mac book, 2000dpi will be good

you will loss the action accuracy if you put pointer speed to a high level,I bet you are neither a FPS game player nor a professional CAD user.

Just bought one from Poundworld after seeing this post. Just tested it on my netbook and it is alright for my needs. Usually just browsing the web whilst travelling on the train. Hot from me.

@thehopewings - just because you can drive, does that make you an expert in vehicle mechanics??

I bet you're one of those people who tells the Plumber how to fix the boiler...

;-)

None in Halifax Poundland (as usual).

These are in POUNDWORLD and also in Discount UK stores.
I've had a few - first scrolling stops then buttons stick down.
Use them on a laptop and they do get dropped onto floor a bit - from sofa.
At least the cable doesn't seem to fail where it enters mouse body.
