Review

The need to reduce cable clutter on, around and under the desk called for the change of an ageing travel mouse. I wanted something that stood out from the unescapable classic style mouse, not too large and with a good technical credential... I found the Eclipse... It took no time to get it going. It’s as sleek and beautifully crafted as I expected. You can switch it off when not in use, an option often unavailable on cordless mice. The dongle is really miniature and the mouse can travel in comfort and safety in a useful faux leather pouch, adding a sense of luxury to this product.

I love the design, the construction, its quality and it works perfectly so far. If you want something different that looks great on a desk but that’s not just a gadget, well this is it, go and get it. Make sure you also check on their website for a nice product presentation - F.A.P.

PC Advisor Review

Review (TrustedNerd.Com) -


We received the Eclipse Mobile Mouse a while ago, and have had quite a while to review it. We were very happy with it, as the quality of mobile mouse these days, well, isn’t that well, with the exception of the SwiftPoint mouse, which kicks butt.

Anyways, I thought that we should start off with the good parts of the mouse. It is very solid, and compact, and its easy to carry. Howvever, on the bad side of things, it’s not BlueTooth enabled, and requires a dongle to make it work, therefore using a USB port L

We know, anything Mad Catz is anything good, and it proves itself once again with the Eclipse Mobile Mouse. We LOVE Mad Catz products, cause well, they are MAD they rock, and are built to perfection.

The Eclipse mobile mouse has a really nice frame, that’s metal, and sits either on an incline, or flat, depending on what you want. It requires only a AAA battery and uses a 2.4 GHz wireless signal through that small USB dongle, which has its own storage inside of the mouse.

Everyone knows, however, that I hate fingerprint leaving products. Due to the fact that the Eclipse Mobile mouse has a glossy black, it’s a fingerprint magnet. But don’t let that take you away from this amazing product. It is a right handed mouse, there are no left handed thumb buttons.

It even has a cute scroll wheel, which feels like the Blackberry scroll wheel. However, scrolling down long pages with the Eclipse Mobile mouse, is a pain.

It does feature a 1600 DPI sensor, which is really good for a mobile mouse. A note however, this mouse isn’t made for gaming. I don’t even want to try to game with it. My Cyborg R.A.T also by Mad Catz is for that J

The Eclipse Mobile mouse is a very good buy, and I highly suggest it for those looking for a mobile mouse option.

5.0 out of 5 stars unusual design, handles superbly, 17 April 2012
The need to reduce cable clutter on, around and under the desk called for the change of an ageing travel mouse. I wanted something that stood out from the inescapable classic style mouse, not too large and with a good technical credential. Somehow I found the Eclipse and I was sold on purchasing it. Indeed the mouse comes very well packaged. Once out, it took no time to get it going. it's as sleek and beautifully crafted as I expected. Though I read a few reviews here and there which were often average, if not for the good points on design, I am finding no issues with the tracking, the scroll ball is just perfect to handle with a good precision and you don't have to worry about clicking inadvertently while rolling, a problem I found on the up-down scrolling wheels. The Eclipse glides perfectly, however it will be noisy on a hard surface. I definitely suggest a mouse pad. You can switch it off when not in use, an option often unavailable on cordless mice. The dongle is really miniature and the mouse can travel in comfort and safety in a useful faux leather pouch, adding a sense of luxury to this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat and different, 5 Sep 2011
I wanted a new mouse to go with a new aluminium keyboard so a web hunt threw up the Eclipse mobile mouse. It is very well packed so took a while to get going. XP found it and any drivers needed without fuss, there is a CD enclosed but this appears to be for 360 scrolling. The tiny dongle fits inside when not needed - logical thinking. The mouse works very well and better than i thought for radio mouse- no difference noticed from the old cable mouse. Left and right click are good no harshness and not too quiet or to loud. It's built on a aluminium chassis and so it's heavy for a mouse but ok for me. It is about 100m long with the rear heal up but this can be moved down so as to lift the rear of the mouse upwards to an angle of about 15 degrees. I do have one gripe which is the trackball - it's very small and the scrolling does not always work. I'm not sure if it is software controlled or mechanical but it does work well when it does.A heavier ball(ball bearing)may be the answer but the issue is minor as i use the keyboard for scrolling anyway. This mouse is really a mobile mouse but i use it for a desk top without fuss. If you want something different from the norm and don't mind paying a little more it's worth it.
