Neat little gadget – Cool Ring-Style Fingertip USB Optical Mouse Reviews

posted by falcon_1898 on 08/01/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
- A very compact mouse - Unique design - An eye catcher - High sensitivity (also a con) - Blinding red LED beam of death at fingertip
Cons:
- Even at 1 oz., it is still too heavy for prolonged fingertip use. - Lacks the middle button - Insufficient support for reaction forces, such that the mouse wiggles around too much when being used. - High sensitivity (difficult to use for precise applications) - Blinding red LED beam of death easily targets the user himself.
Other:
This definitely is a unique product. I acquired it for use with my laptop. But takes a bit of practice to get used to.
Bottomline:
Get it if you want an interesting alternative pointing device, but not really a replacement for an actual mouse. Sometimes it's plain easier to just use the touch pad.
