Found 8th Mar 2014
PC and Mac compatible. I'm using it right now and works fine (I expected something worse for the price). It's small size, so perfect for notebooks.

be careful with these i have had a couple that try to draw too much current over the USB port i unplugged it and didnt use it again and the usb port was fine

I would buy it if I had a nice laptop:)

I had this and the buttons went faulty.

mine i got just would not track it fell apart and i took it back.

An extra 79p you can get a Wireless mouse with 1000-1600dpi.

If the usb port was fine, then why do we need to be careful?!

for a pound can't really complain, but seen mouses like this and used them. Have to say feels horrible and the clicking is stiff and not something you'd want to use on a day to day basis. Better of spending a bit more if you're gonna use it as your own personal mouse.

Good deal but not4me

For 79% more expensive
Anyway this deal seems better, thanks!

PS: Reply to Da11as, "this deal" mean the commented, £1.79, wireless one. Sorry I am not native English speaker and made the confusion

What do you know about deals ? you haven't posted any, no contribution at all (very little activity). Maybe you should go use your main account to write cheeky comments, then we will know who you really are.

Anyhow! Go ahead, pay the extra travailing and parking charges ontop of your £1.00 corded mouse from Poundland, plus the inconvenience etc etc.

I'm paying just £1.79 for a WIRELESS Mouse delivered straight to my door, oh! did I say the mouse is much better quality (£10+ on ebay and amazon).

I have this and it is utter filth. I have more pleasure watching skin flakes fall on to this neglected piece of trash. YOU HEAR ME?

It's like when Mr.Watson shouts at Mary Jane Watson in Spiderman, "YOU'RE TRASH! YOU'LL ALWAYS BE TRASH! JUST LIKE HER".

Wow I would need a brass neck to take something back to POUNDLAND

I bought this mouse - really can't complain for £1.

Hasn't failed as of yet and has a scroller, does the trick and definitely beats the trackpad.

Try to drink less coffee. It isn't doing you any good.

Cool story bro

Banned

I have this connected to smart TV. lol

its very fast and flashes red light . the wire looks weak tho.
for a quid I'm happy

Has anyone found this in London or Nottingham branch?

amazing how they can manufacture this, transport this from china, make a retailer and manufacturer profit....all for £1....wow

In my experience these break fairly quickly, I got about 2 months out of mine.

Good value for a laptop

they have some in crystal peaks Sheffield thanks x

I have several of these and they all work fine. They are maybe not as comfortable as a more expensive mouse, but when you do not use the mouse too often, these are a very good option.

These are not usually available in my local Poundland . . . but they are in the Discount UK store. They are fragile tho'.

connection to computer frequently disconnects and reconnects (sometimes near constantly for several minutes). if you can put up with that, not bad for a quid

Does it make the annoying clicky sound? Does anyone know a cheap mouse that doesn't?

for a quid super deal. heat added

No it makes a relaxingly seductive clicking sound.

Yes, £1 would be very good value for a laptop! If only I could find one at that price!

I found it more seductively relaxing, but hey, to each his own!

How the hell is this on the front page of Computers?

A £1 mouse....you lot worry me sometimes

I've bought a few of these in the past and they've lasted about 4 months a time which is good for £1. I've had the same fault with all 3 I've used though and that's the wire becoming detached from the mouse through daily use. However, I've since bought a Logitech wireless mouse and I've bought a few of these as spares because the price is good for what you get. Be careful when selecting the mouse as some of them come with faulty buttons right out of the box (personal experience when opening one at home). I would recommend these as spares or for travel use.

My first - and only - CORDED mouse was a Logitech, I paid 7 squids for it and it lasted about 8 years without any hint of complaining, and when it gave up the ghost, it was of course because of the cable. I actually fixed it - not just cos I'm a cheapskate, but also for sentimental reasons, AND I also fixed its "click" (it had become less than positive because the plastic had worn down so much at the contact point! I fashioned a tiny prosthetic lift for it out of wood and glued it in place.)
Shortly afterwards, I upgraded to a wireless one, though not bluetooth - also Logitech, 2nd hand from ebay, but was practically unused, also about 7 quid! It still rocks 4 years later, though now I'm finally ready to ditch the desktop. I must be one of the thriftiest hukd-ers around for computing stuff: my mobile phone cost me £25 NEW and my only tablet, a 7" nook hd was £57 2nd hand (pristine A-grade from Cex)!

How can this be a good deal? How long will this mouse last? Not long. Then you have to buy another one. Over the past years I have learnt there are many things which one mustn't buy from Poundland. One example is a screw driver set I bought for a pound. The tip of the two I used broke as soon as I exerted a little bit of pressure. Had to be thrown out.

Many items in the pound shops are for 3-4 times use only. If that will suffice, buy it otherwise stay well clear. I say this as someone who buys a lot of stuff from pound shops such as food, cleaning and gardening items but not gadgets.

Thanks for your advice, decreator. How did you know that the mouse was dragging too much current? Could that break the computer? Thanks!

Same. Buttons needed punched to get to work after about a week of use.
