very nice deal any given day,

Just be aware that if you use the mouse on a regular basis then you will also have to change the batteries on a regular basis....as I found to my cost. I'm not saying this isn't a cheap price but a much better option is to use one with a rechargeable battery which sits on a cradle.

hot..batteries need replacing after a long time i find.

or you can buy NiMH rechargeable batteries. this will be cheaper especially if you already have the charger :-)

On the better mice yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if a wireless mouse this cheap was using substantially less efficient components and batteries only lasted weeks instead of months. Do you have any experience with this one in particular?

If you can get to tesco, ( and they have them in leic) get the one i posted on here.. the microsoft 4000. less than £12... and sells for upto £34...... skip this one, sorry.

Duracell batteries last around a month and a half in my mouse. Had this wireless keyboard for around 7 months now and still haven't had to replace the batteries

voted cold - you can pick up MUCH better/well designed/branded goods for a little bit more.

So what you're saying is that because you can get better mice by spending MORE money, this is a cold deal???

You could say that about the large majority of deals on this site, but that would be missing the point entirely. To people on a budget, this is a good deal - regardless of more expensive alternatives.

wireless keyboard and mouse for £9 in morrisons!

wireless keyboard and mouse for £9 in morrisons!



was just gonna post this! its a labtec ultra-flat wireless keyboard & mouse.

i agree with other though, hate how quick the mouse runs flat! ended up getting a logitech trackman mouse which is brilliant! great for using on lattops too

I had this mouse, until after draining the batteries in 2 weeks. Eveready Batteries.

And then after replacing the batteries. Breaking! Would go for the morrisons one people.

dont see the problem.....i use rechargeable batteries which need recharging once every 6 months (i have spares anway)....my mouse gets about 2-12 hours a day - average 4-5 hours....i wouldnt buy any pc mouse unless its either microsoft or logitech.....most of the rest are rubbish...1.5m range isnt great

not very nice or is that your name......what they were saying is that for just a small amount more, eg £10, you can get a logitech laser mouse from pcworld...much better quality and better support and will last longer

They look a bargain the Labtec set - they're not by a long shot. Two separate sets in my house, ate batteries and the receiver needed to be next to the mouse to work, even with full batts. Pass unless you want to tear your hair out. Shame, but many wireless sets can be iffy.

my mum had one of these and took it back because it went through so many batteries, she changed it for the usb one which is fine

in ebuyer you can get this cheaper too and in whsmith also they used sell this for the same price
so this is correct price not voting cold or hot

How long do the batteries last, plus I thought wireless mice should be available for around under 3.30 quids ?
