Best cordless mouse on DX – Professional 2.4GHz Wireless USB Optical Mouse with Mini USB Receiver (1*AA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Only needs 1xAA. Light weight and construction OK. Nice mini dongle. Smooth scroll wheel. Clicking is OK maybe a little heavy. Connects right away, no pressing buttons to connect each time. Works on XP SP3. CPI button is handy - allows mouse to move around screen quicker or slower with one click.
Cons:
Clicking is OK, maybe a little heavy when double clickiing. No instructions with product. No driver. Won't go dormant so you have to turn it off everytime, not good for batteries if you forget. Tried turning it over, letting it sit still but the laser won't turn off. Fwd and back side buttons are handy but back button is the one hardest to use being at the rear instead of front.
Other:
Battery usage seems good after a week at 5-6hrs/day.
Bottomline:
Glad I got it. Price makes up for dormant issue mentioned above, it'd be perfect if it wasn't for that. AU$40 for equivalent downunder. Best I could find on DX. Just remember to turn it off. If someone works out how to make it go dormant can they post it in their review.
