5-0 out of 5 stars great product, great tech support
I recently bought the fighterstick, throttle and pedals USB.

At first I was at a loss on how to program them, then I stumbled accross www.ch-hangar.com, a support forum where questions are answered by CH Products employess and members of the community.

When I asked for help I got a full custom profile for Battlefield: 1942 that works great.

You can tell this stick is built to last, and the throttle and pedals are solid also and the software is excellent.

My only complaint is the placement of a button on the lower shaft of the joystick where my right pinky rests--preventing me from getting a true white-knucle grip on the stick (the same button also appears on the combatstick usb model).

[Update:I was able to remove this button without much trouble so all is well. I did not have to disassemble the stick to do this.]

I have yet to set the stick up with IL-2: Forgotten Battles, but I feel confident I'll get some help if necessary. www.ch-hangar.com also has a section with downloadable profiles for a number of games which is very handy.

5-0 out of 5 stars looks aren't everything
Being a long time flight simmer and after using many different joysticks, throttles and pedals, I finally tried this one.

With my last stick being the TM Cougar, I learned to appreciate softer springs, precision and overall reliability. Most of these were missing with my one year old Cougar which now seems was all about looks.

Being made by dedicated flight simming accessories company, CH Fighterstick seems to be one of less known secrets of hardcore sim crowd.

At first, I was suspicious because of its plastic feel. The stick is big enough even for large hands, while people with smaller hands may find it somewhat uncofortable.

Springs are very light. This is a plus for me, as it allows higher precision, especially near the center. You don't get to wrestle the springs during your flying. It has great throw, so there is a lot of room for precision input throughout the range of motion.

Trim wheels for both axes help even in simulations without trim controls. Smart stuff.

There is a throttle wheel at the base of the stick. If you have a throttle, this wheel can be mapped to another function, but you won't be able to reach it without letting your hand off the trottle or stick.

Software is excellent and it actually rivals the software being shipped with the Cougar. As with the stick itself, at first it looks toyish. After a while you learn its huge capabilities.

Verdict: The best high end joystick out there - precision, programming abilities, reliability and simplicity being its trump cards. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Kensington Turbo Mouse Pro USB - ROCKS!!!
I have been using Kensington Trackballs for over 15 years. Kensington steps up to the plate, they stand behind on their products. Customer Service is Outstanding. If the product does have a defect, they will replace it just by an email or phone call.

For first time users, my advise is to read the online manuals and just relax your when you place your hand upon the trackball. This is the best tool, besides your computer you will ever use! You won't need to be running your hand all over the desk lifting it up etc like the old mouse movements you were doing. The trackball stays in place. It practically does the work for you.

Enjoy the additional six buttons, they are great short cut tools as well. Your wrist will thank you for the change.
Have fun!

3-0 out of 5 stars I want to love it, but it's a little quirky.
I use one of the older Kensington trackballs at work and absolutely love the thing. I felt confident in buying this one despite some of the reviews knocking the lighter trackball and its effect on the movement of the cursor. I'm writing this review just a few minutes after installing the new mouse, and I have to agree with the critics. The trackball is lighter, and although the up-down movement is good, the side-to-side is quite spotty. I'm going to work with the Turbo Mouse Pro and see if it loosens up a bit for me and the movement becomes more fluid.
Otherwise, it's pretty nice. The scroll wheel works well, the buttons are a nice feature, and it's even kind of cool looking. I really want to believe in this product, so I hope it improves as I "work it in". I'll get back to you later on this.
UPDATE: I've been using this product for a few weeks now, and the movement is not as smooth as I would have hoped. It moves up and down okay, but gets hung up on the side-to-side motion unless I press down pretty hard or wiggle the ball back and forth. I'll use it for awhile longer, but I don't think this is going to change. If you can deal with this quirk, this is a pretty good product. If not, consider this a "ZERO STARS" item and don't buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Old standard, new improvements
This is Kensington's old Turbomouse, updated for the Web era. I use it on my OS X Mac, and I'm pleased to report it works just as well as the three other Kensington trackballs I've used over the last 12 years. They never break - they just go obsolete when Apple changes their connector.

This one is fully USB for modern computers, and shares the same easy configuration and good software as its predecessors. The heavy ball with progressive speed control is so good and so easy to use, you'll wonder why the mouse was ever invented. And with a proper wristrest, this thing is the carpal tunnel savior - it's so kind on the wrists; you have barely to flick your fingers to do all your mousing. And if you're a gamer, especially Quake or Unreal, you'll love how this improves your aiming accuracy!

What's new? Well, this trackball has 4 easy-clicky buttons, and you can set what each does - all the same (single-click), or different. I have mine set to singleclick (lower left), control-click (lower-right), double-click (top left), and I don't use the top right one, because my fingers don't naturally fall there.

There's also a rubberized scroll wheel, which is cool mostly for reading text. It's positioned right to roll it with your middle finger.

There are 6 'web buttons' across the top - you can set 'em to load various URLs, open apps, or pretty much do whatever you like - but I don't use 'em. Don't need 'em.

The unit is fully ambidextrous and has great ergonomics. It is heavy and sits on non-skid feet, but it does need a flat surface to rest on. There is also a wireless version available - but why?? I don't see the point - it's not like you ever move your trackball anyway. It sits there, so you might as well plug it in and save on the RF transceiver, which I hear is prone to interference from microwave ovens anyway.

Replacement balls are available; I've seen red, blue, silver, grey, and transparent ones full of glitter or plastic fish. The unit is fairly easy to clean, but it was easier when you could take off the backplate screws and get inside. Junk just tends to build up on the ball's contact wheels and they need to be scraped every so often. And you won't want to use this trackball while you're eating pizza with your mouse hand - it'll become slippery and start skipping.

In short, this is the only mousing equipment I'd ever consider using - the Cadillac of trackballs - and I highly recommend you buy it right now! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good, but it could have been better
First of all, I believe this product should be complemented with a good joystick, CH Fighterstick being the first choice. Of course, it can function alone, but I really can't think of any situation where one would need a throttle without a joystick.

The device is extremely light compared to similar units. The resistance, however, is slightly stronger, making some kind of fixing it to the table almost mandatory. Either that or you'll have to push it down every time you move it, so the friction does the stabilizing.

The motion is linear rather than arcing, which requires some time getting used to. I'm still not sure if this was a good decision.

There is a number of hat switches and buttons on the throttle and you'll probably never run out of them. Their placing, however, is not as good as with Cougar's throttle, for example. In my opinion, an ergonomic rework of the unit would be beneficial. In any case, if you need more buttons, programming options make further possibilities almost infinite.

There is also a microstick which is quite useful, but there are no dials. A minus, as modern flight sims make good use of dial controls.

Programming abilities are exceptional and belong to the very top. Complemented with CH Fighterstick, there is no other equipment to rival it.

As with other CH gear, the feel is somewhat toyish, but don't be fooled by it - this is a quality product and it will last very long time.

Verdict: Fine product to complement your CH gear. Reliable, with great programming abilities, but it could have been even better with dials, arcing motion and somewhat improved ergonomics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't know what I did without it!
This is an amazing product, it truly transforms your flight sim experience. I had been used to the simple [$$] joysticks with the throttle as a little nob on the side of the thing. This, as part of a HOTAS system (like another CH products jostick), is just worlds apart -- they give you about a bazillion 4-way hat switches, which I use to increment prop pitch, fuel mixtures, supercharger stages, flaps, &c, and three buttons on the front. They also have an interesting mini-joystick, which theoretically one could use as a mouse, although I haven't gotten that to work -- but it is useful for other sorts of analog-action motions, such as the rudder control.

The motion is smooth and stable, and it has a large enough base that it doesn't slip around when you're ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great addition to my computer
I've always liked the idea of a cordless mouse, but the one my parents used made me nervous about buying one. But this mouse has worked wonderfully. No cord adds a level of convenience that I've never had before. Other cordless mouse I've used went through batteries in a matter of days, but not this one. The battery life is long. It has a elegant, sleek design, so it looks great on your desk. This is my first optical mouse and I can't see ever going back. No ball to clean and I've found that the movements of the cursor are just as smooth as my old mouse, maybe even smoother (and I've had no problems on a black surface). The only fault I have found so far is the wheel which seems to move the screen in too-large-chunks. But I think this mouse is great.

5-0 out of 5 stars No more mouse cleaning!
What a relief to have a mouse which I don't have to clean the dirt out of! I got tired of having to occasionally clean the dirt (lint, dust) out of my old mouse so it can work properly again. This mouse is built differently underneath so it doesn't collect any dirt. The only thing you have to worry about is if the battery is running low. Your computer will notify you when the battery is running low, or you can simply click an icon on your desktop to check the battery level. The batteries seem to last a month or up to two months, depending on your computer usage. You might want to invest in a battery charger and rechargeable batteries so you don't have to keep buying batteries so much (you most likely use batteries for other items in your home too) throughout the year.

Of course the best feature for this mouse is that it's cordless. That's one less wire on your desk to get cluttered, entagled with. The equipment and software is fairly easy to install/use on your computer. I've noticed that the price for this item has dropped a bit since I bought it so this a better buy than ever.

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent mouse but can improve
I have been using a touchpad for the past 2 years. I bought this mouse for my wife and tried it for the first few days. On Windows XP, the install is clean. But I was surprised to see that this mouse does not ship with a mousepad. An Optical mouse by virtue of it's technology should be used on a specific surface otherwise it results in a jerky movement. Also there was no instructions whatsoever to suggest the kind of surface to be used on.

It is very sensitive and people used to traditional mice or touchpads will take time to adjust.

5-0 out of 5 stars best mouse I've had yet
I was a little wary of a mouse that was so cheap, but I picked up mine over a year ago on sale at an office store after a little mouse-meets-wall explosion when my old mouse (a regular corded mouse with a ball) stopped working.

I would have gotten something more expensive, having learned that cheap electronics are their own punishment, but I had a project due and NO extra money, so I settled on this little guy. I am glad that I did - it has been the best mouse I've ever had. The one POSSIBLE problem is that you have to replace the batteries, but hey, until they can power mice with tiny little internal nuclear reactors, I'll deal with changing my batteries (which happens MAYBE every 3-4 months for me).

If you have some sort of deranged problem with changing batteries, or if you are willing to pay around a hundred bucks for a mouse, don't get this one. Otherwise, if you're just looking for something that will outperform your outdated old mouse for very few dollars, this is so worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great cordless optical mouse
Okay gang I've been using this mouse at work for nearly a year. I'm a software engineer and use it every day for 8 hours. It operates flawlessly. I don't go through batteries at all like some have mentioned. My solution is a couple sets of rechargeable batteries. They work like a charm! The first time your battery goes dead it's a little frustrating. The mouse stops moving and you think your machine is locked up. So if your mouse disappears or quits moving just slap in a fresh pair of batteries and you're on your way again. I just ordered a second one for my home PC that's how good they are. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 4 years and no turning back
I am at a computer almost all day long and about 4 years ago, I decided to try out the Logitech Optical Marble Mouse, because my arm and wrist were getting too tired from the old mouse.
It took about 1 week to get used to it, but after that learning curve was through, I was so convinced, that I haven't used a mouse extensively since. In fact, when I started a new job, the first thing I did, was buy another Marble Mouse, so that I wouldn't have to struggle with a regular mouse at my workplace.

Except in extreme situations, hand fatigue is a thing of the past for me and the marble mouse I bought four years ago is still working perfectly.

One trick is to set it up so that the right button is the main button and the left button is the context button. In use, I press the right button with any combination of my pinkie, ring finger or middle finger. By distributing the clicking duties between three fingers, the muscle usage is more evenly distributed and repetative motion problems are not a problem.

In fact the beauty of this design is that it is so simple that one is able to use it however you want to. Other trackballs that are overly molded to fit your hand end up causing problems because they force your hand to be in a particular position all day long.

It is also easy to switch between left and right hand use -- though I almost always use right hand.

I do have to clean it during the day, but this is extremely easy. Basically I just pick the ball out of its socket and flick away any dirt that has built up. It takes about 15 seconds and no special cleaning solutions or anything.

If I was running a company, I would make everyone try one of these out for a week. They are amazing computing tools and would be standard issue for all computers if I ran the world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great mouse, my favorite so far
Although, this is the first trackball I ever used, it seems to be the best mouse I ever used.
I thought I was going to stick with my light mouse, even after my mom got this track ball.
I decided to give the trackball a try.
Quite the difference! At least for me, it was very quick and easy to get the hang of it. Some may think it'd be hard to click on things, moving the ball and not the mouse, but this is quite simple to control. It's great with games as well, aimming better.
Instead of moving the mouse back and forth a lot to move yourself in a game, use your fingers to move you around.
Plus, you can leave stuff around the mouse and not feel like you're going to spill, because the mouse part doesn't move.
Strange though, I found out on Descent 3, there's one button you can't use.
Other than that, using it for windows or whatever, and having two other buttons for selected uses, using the back and forward for internet, or scrolling up and down, etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I loved my Marble Mouse by Logitech. I bought the older version with only the two large buttons. I think a standard mouse is better for playing games but for everything else on the computer it is the only way to go. I have recently upgraded to the Logitech cordless mouse....it too is nice. But if the Optical Marble Mouse came cordless I would plunk my money down and buy it again in a second. I now use my Marble mouse at work and have the cordless at home.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Mouse
I first purchased the Logitech Marble Mouse when my daughter was 2 yrs. old. Her little hand was just able to manipulate the marble. It was great because with a regular mouse she did not have the ability to click it without moving the cursor. Now that we have used this mouse I would never go back to a plain one!

5-0 out of 5 stars marble mouse
i just got the mouse today or should i say rat i will not lie the mouse is gigantic or maybe my hands are to small mmmm anyway i do like that you don't move the thing around the whole desk and i love the big red ball i thought the mouse was very odd and that's what really caught mt attention and that everyone gave good reviews i wanted to try it anyways ... i have only had the mouse for a few hours but so far i love it probaly should have waited a few days before i wrote this but i tend to get a little excited about things sometimes i'am use the usb connection on the marble mouse because i still wanted to use my wireless ps2 mouse incase i get frustrated alrighty now overall this is a nice product try it ...

5-0 out of 5 stars great value
like the title says, this mouse is a great value, sitting between the intellimouse explorer and intellimouse wheel. it fits my hand perfectly too, as it is not as big at the explorer.

fuctionwise, the tracking is unparalleled--the new intellieye scanning at 6,000 times per second makes the mouse virtually skip-free, unlike older optical mice. the 5 fully programmable buttons are awesome too. the inteiipoint software allows you to assign different functions to different buttons, in different programs! i even have a button that saves my document in microsoft word! it's really a brilliant invention.

my only gripe about this mouse is its weight. it is on the light side, and i hear the hollow cluck every time i pick it up when i'm playing a game. i've grown used to it by now, but it took a couple of weeks.

in short, i believe this is the perfect mouse for me. its optical eye works great, the buttons are ingenious, and the low price at amazon.com (...) make this mouse the best bang for your buck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Got so used to it, needed another
I got this mouse as a gift and loved it as soon as I started using it. It definitely provides skip-free performance, has a great feel to it, has
the scroll wheel, and my new favorite thing - those programmable buttons!
At first I wasn't used to those programmable buttons and I'd accidentally press them getting unwanted results (like going back to the
previous web-page when pressing the left button, or going forward when pressing the right). But then I got so used to it and realized how helpful it was - so much so that I got another one for my work because I kept trying to press those buttons that didn't exist on my mouse at work!
There's definitely no going back to a mechanical mouse in this day and age after so many optical mouses (or is it mice!) are available.
But if you haven't used a mouse with programmable buttons before, I'm telling you - give it a try and you won't ever want to go back to
one that doesn't have them! And for the price, this one's a great bargain.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fine Product Suitable to Most Needs
I've used my Intellimouse Optical for over a year now and I'm quite happy with it. The size is perfect for my average-sized hands and the performance is decent. I play PC games of all genres and have never had any response problems. An adapter lets you use the mouse through either a PS2 port or a USB port. Game players who rely on quick responses should use a USB port since the PS2 port has a lackluster execution. As with other optical mice, the tracking isn't as efficient on shiny surfaces. I therefore still use my mouse pad. The mouse has two extra buttons on the right and left side. I'm fairly happy with the position of these buttons. I do find however that sometimes while in Internet Explorer, I accidently press the button near my thumb. This can cause me a moment of confusion since that button is mapped to the IE "Back" button. Overall, the Intellimouse Optical is an excellent product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great mouse!
I wound up with this mouse because my previous one was eaten by the cat so it died. Once connected, I just fell in love with this one. It is so much easier to use than a ball mouse and you don't have to clean it, which makes my life tons simpler. My only problem is that the right and left click bars are a little too sensitive so I wind up clicking when I didn't want to. But, other than that, it's just been great and the cat isn't too interested in this one! It has a lot more substantiality than my previous one, is heavier, etc., so it definitely is great quality.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't trade it for the world
I bought my mouse two years ago when I received a new laptop. My previous mouse was a ball roller that kept getting dirty on me, so I decided to try an optical mouse because I heard they worked a lot smoother. I got mine at a discount price at our local Target store. I brought it home and hooked it up immediately, and put my old mouse away. I loved it! It is very easy to use and the internet back/forward buttons are a blessing because I don't have to move the mouse all over the screen when going back to another page. It moves easily over any surface, but I did find after a while that it began rubbing the surface off my computer desk and thus I had to buy a mouse pad. I hadn't many problems with it until lately. I have noticed that it doesn't want to move as smoothly as it did when I first got it. If I am playing a game, it can make it hard to keep up. I haven't been as careful and gentle with it as I should have though and that may be why. Anyway, I am thinking of getting a new mouse and will definitely buy another one of these optical mouses, but will be more careful this time. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

For those of us who spend a majority of our days in front of our Macs squinting at the screen and clacking away at the keys, Macally has created the iMediaKey multimedia keyboard to make our lives easier. With the 19 programmable shortcut keys, you can access your e-mail, the Internet, CDs, games, and whatever else you choose to program with the simple push of a button. That means no more extra opening, clicking, dragging, and closing.

Some of the keys are already programmed and fairly self-explanatory--the envelope icon means email, the speaker horn with three lines emanating from it means volume up--but the keys numbered M1 through M5 are waiting for you to assign as you see fit. To help you activate the iMediaKey's functions, a CD-ROM is included with the package. The disc features a clear, straightforward manual, for which you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 to access. The install program will bring up the iMediaKey Manager, which will take you through the programming process step by step. If you decide to reprogram at a later date, just use the iMediaKey Manager to clear out the former applications and start again. Users should note the programmable keys are not compatible with AppleScript, the built-in language used to automate tasks on Macintosh computers.

Constructed of durable translucent plastic, the keyboard is sturdy and solid but still lightweight at 3.5 pounds. At nearly twice the size of the standard Mac keyboard, you'll need more room to fit it into your workspace, but you'll find that you're hitting the wrong keys less frequently once you get rid of the child-sized keyboard that Apple supplied. And the rounded space bar is great for those of us whose thumbs often miss the bar. With its 5-foot long USB cable, you'll be able to position the iMediaKey in whatever configuration suits you best, and the two extra USB ports on either side allow both right- and left-handers to connect a USB mouse to whichever side is most convenient. --Dana Van Nest

Pros:

  • At-your-fingertips convenience
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons:

  • Incompatible with AppleScript
  • Must know shortcut key combos in order to program

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy on the pocketbook, if not on the eyes
Well okay, it's not absolutely hideous looking, just a little bit cheesier than the original G3 keyboard that came with the first iMacs, whose style it most obviously resembles. It is also huge in comparison, though you might just say it is generous in its layout. Most importantly, the iMediaKey is actually comfortable to operate, and its many extra programmable buttons are quite convenient to have. A really wonderful, if perhaps confusing, feature is that the F14 & 15 buttons, labeled scroll lock and pause, actually control contrast. I just love this, because otherwise on my iMac I would have to open Displays from a drop down menu and wait for the preference pane to load before accessing the setting. The Function keys respond immediately. Also of course there are volume control keys; they are grouped among the other rather small soft rubber media buttons. These have a real neat feel and I kinda wish all the keys were made of that material.
As for durability, well I only carried this keyboard home last evening, so I can't vouch for that. The two USB ports do not offer as snug a fit as that of Apple's keyboards, but they seem to be working fine none the less. The Power button also has a loose feel to it, but it rides in a deep well; so while I don't fear that it will ever suffer accidental damage, its spring might perhaps wear out before the rest of the device is shot.

Now if you are using Panther as your OS you might want to take advantage of a recent bit of shareware that can modify Function keys. Perhaps over-priced at $20, FunKeys X lets you program keys F1 through 8, Help, and Home, in ways more than do any of its free or similarly priced competitors. You can launch Google without first opening your browser, open any folder, file or application, switch to Finder, control iTunes, Undo, Cut, Copy & Paste all with one touch. It is configured through its own preference pane and is perfectly compatible with iMediaKey!

You know, after pounding out this review on my new Macally keyboard, my eyes have grown more used to it and I don't think it's bad looking at all. Yes, it's really quite attractive...

Feeling dizzy now, gotta go lie down...

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than Apple's
This keyboard is great! It is basicly just like an Apple Pro Keyboard. The only difference is the extra 19 programable buttons. They can be used to do almost anything. The defaults have them carry out Volume Adjust, Audio/Video Player buttons (play, ff, stop,etc.) and anything else you want. The only thing I can't get right is the start-up key. But I believe that is happening because of my Mac model. Otherwise, perfect keyboard. I even used it to type this review!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great keyboard!
I bought this to replace the Apple Pro keyboard that came with my G4. With the Apple Pro Keyboard, I found myself constantly typing double or triple letters, even if I only pressed down the key lightly. After months of feeling illiterate, I gave up.

After agonizing over a keyboard purchase, I chose the iMediaKey, hoping it might offer some of the same features as the keyboard it was replacing. And it does! It not only has volume controls on it, as well as media eject functions, it also has a POWER BUTTON that works through the USB port! For all those people like myself who really miss that ability to power up off the keyboard, you can welcome it back.

In addition, there are full music controls (FFwd, Rew, Play, Stop, Pause) on the keyboard, buttons for email and your internet browser, and several programmable buttons. The best part about it is that this thing is plug and play- install the software, and all the buttons are pre-configured. Eudora came up immediately, as did IE, which are the two clients I use for email and web respectively.

I like the feel of this keyboard a lot. I'm used to older Mac keyboards, and having to actually type and not touch. You definitely have to push the keys down. But there have been few if any key repeats, and I feel much more confident with this keyboard.

My one complaint is that the caps lock key does not have a light on it and is placed close to the A, so on my first day I was hitting it a lot. That immediately became a non-issue.

If you need to replace your Apple Pro keyboard, this may be the one. I can't vow for durability yet, only because I have only had this keyboard for a little over a week. But for functionality, it's perfect. Knock wood!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great replacement Macintosh keyboard
I'm as unable to stop auditioning keyboards as dogs are to stop being interested in fire hydrants. I keep looking for that holy grail of typing perfection. Until a few months ago, I would have said that was Logitech's ergonomic wireless.

But then along came the smooth, almost buttery feel of Apple's standard Mac keyboard, and I was DONE. That thing was a dream to type on. It was also strangely susceptible to the slightest outpouring of coffee.

When my local store didn't have an immediate replacement, I took instead this Macally iMediakey as a tide-me-over, and I've gradually found myself reluctant to go back to the Apple standard. For one thing, the Macally does have a whole series of keys that the Apple doesn't. They aren't keys that you NEED really: all the programs that would use these keys have easy enough keyboard shortcuts. But it's nice to be able to, for instance, control your DVD from your keyboard. It's also great to be able to adjust the typing height of the keyboard. The standard Apple keyboard can barely be raised from a flat position. Finally, the keys, though not quite as smooth as Apple's, are good enough that you have to wonder whether it's worth paying more for the Apple name.

To be sure, it's not a perfect device. For one thing, it doesn't "auto repeat" consistently. Sometimes keys will repeat when you hold them down; sometimes they won't. I've tried to get support from Macally on this issue, but to no avail. So I just reboot until it's working. Also, the USB ports are somehow even more underpowered than the ones on the Apple standard. With the Apple, I could at least plug in my USB floppy drive. If I try to do that with the Macally, I immediately get a message saying that the port doesn't have enough power to run the floppy drive. To be sure, that's what's SUPPOSED to happen. Keyboard ports shouldn't have the power to run disk drives. But the fact that the Apple keyboard CAN says a lot about the Apple design, and something about Macally's as well.

Still, when you take these problems against the keyboard's advantages, and then compare its price against a new Apple standard keyboard, it becomes pretty clear that this thing is a serious contender for the hearts--and fingers--of Macintosh users everywhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars Macally Imediakey failures
I am using my 3rd Imediakey in as many months. The first one failed within 60 days. I returned it to the manufacturer and received a replacement. The replacement failed within 30 days. This time I encountered resistance from the manufacturer regarding the return. Confused people, long hold times, being transfered from one person to another, etc. I finally had to become forceful to get results. I personally would not buy another Imediakey. Actually, I will never buy another Macally product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect
I spent alot of time looking for a good optical mouse. I looked at prices, features, number of buttons, etc. I decided to go for the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer based on the location of the extra buttons. At first it felt kind of light in my hand and it took a little bit of time getting used to the extra buttons. But now that I have used it for a while I love it! The extra buttons are programable and are placed in the perfect spots. I use one to copy and the other one to paste. The optical eye never misses a beat, you get precise pointing everytime. The only thing I wish is that they would of made it a little heavier, the plastic is pretty light and the texture could also have more grip. Other than that it is an excellent product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Basically 4.5 stars, but I can't give them 5 now can I.
The mouse is excellent. I've owned it for about a year and a half and I don't think I'm going to replace it any time soon--although the tilt wheel is an interesting idea.

(However, the tilt wheel version seems to have it's own problems based on some reviews--thumb buttons moved back to an awkward position for no reason, and middle button click not working most of the time--goes off to either side, scrolling left/right instead of doing a given action.)

Again I will say this mouse is excellent--it has a practically flawless optical sensor that only causes trouble on very uneven surfaces--such as a ruffled bed sheet. I mainly use it for my desktop, but connecting to my laptop is cake. I have a decent knowledge about hardware and software, and installing programs is no big for me--but this is easily alleviated if you're using Windows XP Home or Pro Edition. You can simply plug the mouse in and you will be able to use it in about 10 seconds, along with the middle mouse button, and two thumb buttons.

Setting up the more advanced features of the mouse takes a few minutes though, and usually requires the use of the software CD (outdated now) or software from Microsoft's website. It normally works well in FPS and other computer games, but occasionally you won't be able to set the thumb buttons or the middle button--which I obviously have to knock off points for, my old mouse's middle button was always fully compatible.

I've barely cleaned the thing--and it's remained in perfect working condition. The sensor never gives me trouble and the buttons still work like brand-new. Especially the scroll and middle mouse button that some people have complained about. The clicks you feel in the scroll wheel are what make this mouse really great in my opinion. Some mouse wheels scroll too easily, or some scroll without any feel to them--this one is perfect and has good resistance to it. The middle mouse button works like it should, with about the same resistance as the two main mouse buttons, and the same quick response. Using it in games (it should work for practically all programmable games) is a breeze.

The ergonomics are great, and the only thing that could really improve is perhaps the height of the mouse. While I love the feel of the hump, it may be too tall. It's slightly large for me, and could be really small for someone less than 5'9" or so with "average-sized" hands. Also, the hump/bump could have been placed further back on the mouse, so it would rest right underneath your knuckles--whereas most of the time my fingers are split in half by the horizontal line where the two mouse buttons end, with a mix between the lower part of my fingers on the hump and my palm slightly touching the back of the mouse, along with the bottom of my hand resting on the given surface.

The mouse looks great, feels pretty good, and is slightly cheaper now if you can still find it--I don't have any significant problems with it--great in Windows ME (when I started using it) and XP.

3-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for 18 months then multiple problems.
I bought my corded Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 for use on a PC with Windows ME. For the first 18 months it worked great then all of a sudden began having multiple problems.

PROS:
1) Excellent tracking resolution, never lets the cursor skip or jump. Can make tiny moves smoothly. The bottom of the mouse moves smoothly and I've never had to clean the surface contacts.
2) Comfortable ergonomic shape. My hand doesn't get tired after a day of mousing.
3) The extra buttons are well placed and easy to program to do whatever I need them to do (wish there were even more buttons!).

CONS:
1) The scroll wheel was never easy to roll, but after about a year it became nearly impossible to use. Hard to roll, as if it was stuck or dirty. It wasn't dirty on the outside, but I couldn't open the mouse to see if it needed cleaning on the inside. I have to press down so hard to get the wheel to turn now that the wheel button engages instead. The scroll wheel is supposed to move freely with little resistance, instead now its almost useless.
2) Recently the left-click button started registering a double-click every other time I single-click. This is some sort of mechanical problem, since it happens no matter what I set the sensitivity to, and at any rate I'm not clicking any differently than I ever have. This is a major annoyance and renders the mouse basically useless.
3) A $50 dollar mouse (at the time of purchase) should last longer than 18 months. I use it mostly for typical office work. Although I do gaming with it as well, I do not consciously abuse my equipment. Perhaps the gaming causes extra stress on a mouse, but I've never had cheap $20 mice go kaput with the same kind of use.

All in all, though this mouse has nice features, I couldn't recommend this model, although more recent versions may have been improved. I have to replace this one now, and although I have nothing against Microsoft in general and usually look at Microsoft products first, I will be trying a Logitech mouse next (for the first time).

4-0 out of 5 stars Liked it so much I bought it three times... but no more
In short, I'm writing primarily to second Tinderbox's excellent review on all the PROs and CONs.

Also, if you're currently using this mouse and like the extra buttons, I recommend installing Intellipoint 4.0 instead of the more recent Intellipoint 5.0

More on this below...

quick partial summary of Tinderbox's review:
PROs:
1) good tracking
2) good ergonomic shape
3) well-placed extra buttons
CONs:
1) over time: sticky scroll-wheel
2) over time: left-click started registering multiple clicks when single-clicking
3) quick wear

and now for some of my experiences...

Mouse #1: corded Intellimouse Explorer
I bought the original corded Intellimouse Explorer for Win XP and loved it. It tracked well, felt good ergonomically, and I came to the point where I couldn't live without the added buttons. Personally, I mapped the small thumb button as my "back" button, and the larger thumb button for "ALT-TAB" to recall my last used window.

After about a year, the mouse mysteriously died. I'm not quite sure why, but since I've become so enamored of this mouse by this point, I decided to get another Intellimouse Explorer.

Mouse #2: corded Intellimouse Explorer 3.0
By this time, they no longer sold the exact version of my original mouse. Microsoft released v3.0 of the mouse. The only physical difference I noticed was that the thumb buttons were much thinner than the original Intellimouse, which originally irked me, but I quickly got used to.

Within a year, the tracking started going haywire and the cursor would jump erratically. I tried to clean the contact surface, but it did no good. Trashed it and got... another one...

Mouse #3: corded Intellimouse Explorer 3.0
However, within about a year and half, I experienced the exact symptoms mentioned in the Tinderbox review: sticky-like feeling on the mouse-wheel, additional random clicks registering on the left-click button. The latter problem rendered the mouse virtually unusable.

As silly as this sounds, I was almost considering getting the same mouse again, just because I liked the feel and features, however, Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 are no longer readily available, since they have been replaced by the newer Intellimouse Explorer 4.0 (with Tilt-wheel). I tried v4.0 out at a store and could not stand it. Personally, I didn't like the fact the mouse-wheel moved left-to-right. But on top of that, Microsoft removed the "clicks" on the mouse-wheel, which just doesn't feel right to me. The thumb buttons are also placed a bit higher on the 4.0 mouse which lessens my comfort factor.

All in all, the old Intellimouse Explorers were nice when they worked, but (at least for me) they seem to wear out a bit too frequently. I'm currently looking into the Logitech MX 510.

As for the INTELLIPOINT software:
If you do own or plan to own this mouse, I HIGHLY suggest tracking down a copy of the Intellipoint 4.0 software instead of using the most recent version 5.0

PROs of Intellipoint 4.0:
1) had a larger set of preset options in the pull-down menus for each button function
2) allowed you to input your own keystrokes

CONs of Intellipoint 5.0:
1) reduced the number of preset options, adding a few new ones, but removing a LOT of old ones
2) no more custom keystroke mapping to buttons. For example, I could no longer map my buttons to ALT-TAB or "recall window" with Intellipoint 5.0

This mouse is somewhat old by the time of this writing, but hopefully this info will be of some use to someone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a Mouse that doesn't get Stuck! It's Great!
~ ~ * ~ ~
~ ~ Between my old beloved Macintosh, and my new PC, I must have gone through 10 Mouses (Mice?).
Each one, no matter what brand, ended up getting "stuck"- the ball inside that guides the mouse's
movement, would stop rolling smoothly. I'm willing to share some of the blame, occasionally I have
nicotine fit while working, and I know the ashes spell death to the Mouse's performance. The same problem
occurs with the sticky fingers the kids sometimes have when using the computer.

~ ~ I do a lot of amateur photo-editing. (Adobe Photoshop and less expensive, Photodeluxe are great!) This
means that having a mouse with really precise and accurate tracking is absolutely vital! I was a little
skeptical about the optical mouse, but I bought this Logitech basic optical mouse on sale.
It is wonderful. I can even notice the difference in the wonderfully precise movements when I play simple
online games like "Collapse" and "Bounce Out".

~ ~ For any work that requires precise cursor movement (Photo-editing, Illustration, fast-paced Games), this
mouse is terrific. I've had it for 2 months now. A normal mouse would have required at least 2 cleanings of
the inner ball mechanism, but the Mouse hasn't let me down yet.

I highly recommend the Logitech Optical Mouse as an inexpensive investment, which will greatly improve
the way you succeed with many of your applications. This purchase was a winner!

5-0 out of 5 stars This A+ certified user is happy with his Logitech Mouse.
I have always liked Logitech's products. I own a wireless keyboard, the Trackman FX mouse alternative, Wingman Rumblepad, Extreme 3D joystick, cordless Playstation2 controller, and now, this humble little optical mouse. Every single one of those Logitech products exceeded my expectations.

I bought a used computer on ebay to add to my home network. It did not come with a mouse. So, not wanting to spend a whole lot of money, I went for this inexpensive optical mouse and ordered from Amazon, along with a KDS 17-inch monitor. I thought it would be necessary to install the included drivers to get it to work with Windows 2000 Advanced Server. However, using the USB port, the mouse immediately began to work without the need to install the drivers from the CD.

This particular computer system is in a dark part of the house. I can plainly see the red light start to glow brighter from the bottom of the unit during use. This device works on a variety of surface, so you do not need a mouse pad.

I highly recommend this Logitech mouse. It is a very good product even if you do not factor in the low price.

I will write a review of the KDS 17-inch monitor as soon as I have had a chance to evaluate it further.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product! Highly Recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I first purchased the regular IntelliMouse Explorer I was impressed how comfortable it fit in my hand and how accurate the laser was. When I saw Microsoft released one that was wireless I had to purchase it since I liked the one with the wire so much. The mouse is really amazing how accuate it is. It can be used from as far as 6 ft away from the receiver and it doesn't need to be directly in front of it. I even tried using it on my chest and still worked!

---(. . .) I also had this problem with the RF noise right after I started using it. It made this loud squeely noise whenever I moved it. It went away about 2 days later. Then about 2 weeks later it said my batteries were running low so I changed them. It made the noise again but went away in 5 minutes.

When I first experienced the noise problem I considered sending the mouse back. Then I figured its so much easier being able to have my arm in any position without having the wire so I decided to keep it. I'm so glad I made that decision because now the noise is gone!

This is IMHO one of Microsoft's products yet! I just wished the batteries lasted longer.

2-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU LEAVE YOUR COMPUTER ON ALL THE TIME!
It seemed like a fairly nice idea. Wireless. No tethers. Optical precision. Sounds cool. And I figured that even though it was wireless, the batteries would last about as long as other wireless peripherals (like a wireless keyboard) that I have.

Of course in retrospect I should have realized that even if stowed in a dark desk drawer, the mouse would be constantly chattering to its base station.

In short, battery usage is MUCH too high for users who have their PCs on 24-hours a day. On brand new high quality alkalines, I get 4-6 days before the batteries are drained. With rechargeables, I get about 10 hours.

Suspecting at first that I might simply have a defective unit, I got a replacement unit. Same problem. Identical statistics.

As for precision... the mouse is decent, if a bit sluggish. It goes into sleep mode occasionally (though apparently not reliably enough to conserve the batteries!) and thus you get occasional jerks in motion when it doesn't respond for a few seconds while waking up.

The ergonomics feel quite comfortable to my hand. Scroll wheel motion is smooth. I like the extra 2 side buttons, especially for browsing.

All in all, I suspect that the wired version of this mouse is quite good. Most of the problems I've encountered can be attributed, directly or indirectly, to the wireless functionality (i.e. jerky motion, sluggishness, inconvenience of frequent battery replacement).

But the problems of wirelessness seriously detract from the usefulness of this mouse. I strongly disrecommend its use for those with always-on PCs. And even for those not in that category, I would recommend you try your best not to be lured in by the "wireless" gadgetry. Remember that you still have a "wire" plugging into the machine for the base station, so this isn't a space saver. Unless you absolutely, positively HAVE TO have the wireless feature (for instance if you're sitting 50 feet away from the computer and using the mouse on your lap), then do yourself a BIG favor and avoid wireless mice. It isn't just the Microsoft wireless mice that suffer from these problems. I've tried 'em all and none are much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Two for Two with One Possible Caveat
Prior to this mouse I had been using the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer for at least 3 years. I digress to include the hardware I have as it may help explain the noise issue that other reviewers have raised, but I have not experienced at all. My computer is 6 months old, Pentium 4, 2.0Ghz, I use a traditional CRT monitor, and the mouse is the only piece of wireless equipment I use at present. I do plan on adding a wireless keyboard, but at present it is a traditional wired design. I tried moving the transmitter nearer and away from various components but I could not create any interference in the form of noise or any other problems. I also watched a DVD feature film, and again there was no issue of interference.

The manual is very brief but is specific about what the receiver should be kept away from, and the distance of 8 inches that should be maintained. It also specifies a PS/2 connection when using Windows. My version is USB only and again no issues. The previous mouse was also a USB connected device.

I never looked at the manual until sitting down to write these comments, for the installation did not require it. I am running Windows XP Home, and once plugged in; the necessary software/drivers had already been detected and installed via plug n play, prior to even reaching for the installation disc. Installation does not get any easier. The installation disc is still unopened in its package.

There is one major issue that needs to be considered if you choose the wireless pointing device route, and that is batteries or a rechargeable cradle like Logitech offers. The need to change batteries will become an issue depending on the frequency they need changing, and I use the device many hours per day. The rechargeable has the obvious advantage of no replacement of batteries required. However unless those manufacturer have solved the problems of rechargeable batteries having a tendency to develop a memory, that could offset the advantage of the rechargeable versions. So there may be an ease of use over the near term, and a trade off in the long term.

My final advice would be to read or ask some people who have tried the rechargeable version for their thoughts. The other reason for the choice may seem hard to justify, but to the extent I have hardware designed and built by/for the same manufacturer, I prefer the option, nothing objective I can offer as evidence, just a feeling that a common denominator is preferable. The device is very sensitive, and very precise, and that would seem to be an issue that is adjustable, I have not had any problems with it developing a mind of its own and strolling around the screen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected...all I ask from a wireless mouse
Bought this mouse in March and use it since at the office every day. Great handling, easy setup under XP, and the software installation was no hassle. Also I prefer big mice...if you have a small hand or limited space on your desk however this one may be a little too big. In contrast to everybody else here reporting short battery life, I still have to exchange my batteries for the first time. The icon still says "Battery status: Good", and I have no problems with that...eight to nine weeks after I started to use the mouse on a daily basis. So here I am buying more of these for the rest of my PCs...

15. Logitech 936042-0403 MouseMan Traveler (Silver)

Amazon.com Review

Logitech's MouseMan Traveler makes a sleek and nimble companion, providing reliable optical mousing on the road or at your desk. It's light, easy to set up, and perfectly suited for use in either the right or left hand. The mouse is optimized for a USB connection, but a handy PS/2 adapter accommodates older computers, too.

Features
Besides being small and fast, the MouseMan Traveler simplifies Web browsing through Logitech's handy WebWheel. The WebWheel, like the mouse's left and right buttons, can serve any purpose you choose--you can easily assign functions such as click/select, auto scroll, double-click, etc. in the Mouse Properties window. When designated specifically as the default, however, the wheel not only scrolls up and down within a given browser window, but also performs standard browser functions like Reload, Back, and Stop, reducing your mousing time and, accordingly, your wrist strain.

Within your browser, simply press the wheel like a button to access the WebWheel menu, and all additional options appear in a small, circular field immediately beneath the cursor. You can even configure the menu to let you zip to your favorite sites without so much as having to move your cursor to your favorites list. WebWheel functionality requires Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT 4.0, Me, or XP for the PC and Mac OS 8.6 or later for Macintosh computers, as well as an Internet service provider (ISP) account.

Compatibility
If you're using a PC, make sure you have Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT 4.0, Me, or XP; an available USB or PS/2 port (Windows 98, 2000, Me, or XP is required for USB hookup); and a CD-ROM drive. Mac users need to be using Mac OS 8.6 or later, with both a USB port and a CD-ROM drive. --Michael Mikesell

Pros:

  • Small
  • Nice action
  • WebWheel function is convenient and customizable
  • Includes PS/2 adapter
Cons:
  • No user adjustments for scrolling (takes lots of turns to move down a page)
  • Uncomfortable to use for long periods of time

5-0 out of 5 stars You really dont want to be without this gem
I just purchased a Dell laptop, The touchpad was so sensitive it drove me nuts. So I looked at this model because it seemed to have all the right specs.
It took all of 5 minutes to install the software and have the mouse up & running. It is small enough to work on the right or left side of your laptop. It is optical W/USB & a PS2 adapter. It has a 3' extension. The mouse is small but very ergonomic with a 2 button scroll. Works with all Windows including XP OS & Macs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great tiny mouse... if your hand's small enough
I've been using this mouse for over a year now, hooked up to Apple PowerBook G4, which incidentally, complements each other's metallic surface well.

Pros:
- Very portable, ruggedly built.
- Stylish design with brushed metallic surface (highly resistant to finger prints).
- Ideal cord length (includes an extension cord as well).
- Comes with the carrying pouch.
- Smooth mousing experience -- smooth pointer movement, good tactile feedback on the buttons and scroll wheel.

Cons:
- Too small for all but small hands under extended usage.
- Only the surface is metallic. The rest is unimpressive boring black boxy plastic.
- Scroll wheel and the plastic layer underneath the metal surface attract dust.
- Non-retractable cord.
- Only 2 buttons and scroll wheel.

If you are looking for a mouse that will sit on your desk most of the time, this is NOT the mouse for you. Although it is one of the best portable mice out there, its small dimension (about the size of a PC Card) will challenge all but small hands after extended use. Get a desktop mouse if that's your intention.

That said, all portable mice are small and Logitech's MouseMan Traveler is among the very best. Its optical sensor, while not one of those super fast sensitive kinds, will track the pointer movement with grace and accuracy, never skipping the beat. Its two buttons, which are cleverly integrated as the surface body, offer very good tactile feedback, as does its scroll wheel, which offers good friction (not too smooth, not too hard).

My only real complaints is how easily the mouse collects dust. Because this is an optical mouse, the dust will not interfere with the operation. However, the area between metal surface (which doubles as two buttons) has some gap that attracts dust. You can use the paper napkin to clean, but be prepared to clean often. The scroll wheel collects dust even more easily, although this is all too common among scroll wheel-based mice.

I recommend this mouse highly for travelers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Compact and cool looking traveler's mouse
Ok, you are a cool-looking road warrior with your latest high-tech laptop running Windows XP. You hate the touchpad, though, so what do you do? The MouseMan Traveler is the answer. It's a small, lightweight mouse with a cool design. Unlike other mice with two obvious buttons, this one uses one piece of thin metal to cover the actual button touch points. Very easy to use. It's also comfortable to hold even for someone like me with big hands, but the "buttons" are slanted in such a way as to make clicking take some getting used to. It should have a "fuller" feel in the hand. But, unlike many notebook mice, it's both lefty and righty friendly.

It works beautifully right after you plug it into a Windows XP computer. For those on legacy systems, driver software on a mini-CD-ROM is included, as is a USB-to-PS/2 adapter. Also included is an extension cord, so you can use the mouse either in the short form, or in the long form. Very considerate of Logitech.

The mouse is about 2/3 the size of regular mice and feels solid and well built. It's a winner. I was attracted to it by Circuit City's rebate this week, which essentially gives me 50% off the regular price. But even at the regular price, this would have been a great value and a great companion to the many road trips.

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect laptop companion
I love this little thing. A lot of travel mice are too small, or the wrong shape, or easily broken, but this mouse is just right. The buttons have just the right amount of give to them, the scroll wheel is firm but not too firm, and it tracks well whether I'm using it on a tabletop, on my pants leg, or even on my laptop's wrist rest. Plus, it comes with a sturdy carrying case, so I don't have to worry about it getting damaged in my laptop bag, and an extension cord, in case the three-foot cord on the mouse isn't long enough for whatever reason. It looks stylish, too!

3-0 out of 5 stars Hard to click
I bought this mouse for my averatec 3225. It looks very good but BEWARE... the keys are very hard. You really need to put some force to click. This was really disgusting in the beginning but I got used to it. I would give a 5 stars for look and 1 star for usage. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best gamepad out there!
First of all, I'd like to say that this gamepad beats all other gamepads. I did about two straight weeks of reasearch for this gamepad and even tested it in stores. I think that it is a lot better than any of the Microsoft gamepads because the great D-pad. What I like about the D-pad better than Microsoft's D-pad is that it is a lot bigger and easier to move because it is like a big joystick. I would also like to say that the Precision function is great for shotting games for targetting. Last of all, I found the gamepad was a lot more comfortable than Microsoft's and other brands of gamepads. It gave me a nice grip too. Also the buttons are pretty easy to reach, accept for the four action buttons which were a little far appart, but I didn't think I should take away a star for that. Well, anyway, I highly recomend this gamepad for anyone who really want's to do well in their games.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very good, hassle-free gamepad
I bought the Eliminator shortly after buying the basic GamePad Pro (the white Playstation-esque controller) so that I could play two player games with my friends. In most areas, the Eliminator outshines its humbler, plainer counterpart, albeit for a hefty price.

To begin with, the Eliminator's directional control is capable of functioning as an analog pad, which is a definite plus for 3D games like Evil Twin. But it can revert to digital 8-way mode via its "Precision" button (which, unfortunately, cannot be configured to have any other use). As an analog pad, the Eliminator performs admirably, with smooth movement and no significant problems. As a digital pad, it is a tad awkward because of its smooth, ball-and-socket feel. But it works perfectly well.

One gripe I have with the controller is that it only has ten buttons (same as the GPP), but it costs a lot more than the GamePad Pro. Also, although it looks a lot cooler, its supposedly ergonomic shape does not actually make it feel any more natural to use than any other controller.

If you are considering the Eliminator, ask yourself this question: do I really need an analog pad? (Hint - if you play 3D platformers on your computer, you do.) If you don't, then go with the white GamePad Pro instead. It may not look as slick, but it's a much better value.

If you do, on the other hand, the Eliminator is a solid choice that won't let you down.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great gamepad, but fragile...
When I saw it in the store, I held it on the display to see if it was good. It felt great, I liked how the buttons were situated. But if you have Windows 2000 or Windows XP, the software you have to use is only available on the Gravis site, and is only in Beta form. But thats not the bad part about it.

I use the pad for no more than a couple days, and it no longer wants to move up or down. I figure its a driver problem, so I uninstall and reinstall the software package. Still no go. Be very careful with the directional pads on this gamepad and any ones with a similar rounded directional pad, as they are very cheaply manufactured and break easily. If I could, I would have returned it, but it was a sale item. It has a three year warranty, but the way I play games with it, I really don't want to have to keep sending the gamepad back every couple weeks to get fixed.

You are better off with the normal Gamepad Pro or Gamepad Pro USB, that looks like a Playstation or PS2 controller, as it has a better directional pad (it isn't the rounded type).

2-0 out of 5 stars Guess what...poor calibration
I bought a Gravis Gamepad Pro about 7-8 years ago and it is still going strong to this day. My 6 year old and I have been playing Wakeboarding unleashed and knew we needed another gamepad. So this past weekend I bought the Gravis Eliminator Gamepad Pro. Unfortunately, I cannot calibrate it correctly. It keeps wandering to the left or right.

When i called Gravis and asked, the lady with the foreign accent at tech support tried telling me that it was the game and that I needed to try another. I told her this was my only game. She said then that a technician would call me back.... still waiting.

It's going back to the store.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Mouse
Before reviewing this mouse, I made sure I had the latest Bluetooth and Wireless Mouse Firmware installed (March 2004). The CD in the box was already out of date. Always check with the Software Updater first. Many bugs are fixed by firmware. For those with problems, I might suggest you make sure your Firmware is up to date.

I installed the 1.5V Lithium batteries that came with it. A note about using AA rechargables. Most all AA rechargables are 1.25V, not 1.5V, so you are starting off with 17% less power if you use rechargables, which will reduce your range. The Energizer Lithium batteries that is comes with are probably the best AA batteries that you can buy. (about $5 for 2)

This mouse is about 20% heavier than the Apple Pro mice (white or clear). It weights slightly less than my 15G iPod. If you don't have to lift the mouse up and down, you can easily get used to the extra weight. I've been using Apple mice since 1984, and the early ones were like heavy bars of soap, so this is light in comparism. The click tension is also adjustable inside, which is now missing from the White Apple Pro USB Mouse.

This mouse appears larger to the eye, because it is solid white, not clear or white/clear. In fact, it's identical in shape and size as the Apple Pro Mouse.

Tracking seems identical to the Apple Pro Mouse. I would recommend that you use a solid colored mouse pad with any optical mouse. Sharp contrasting colors can make them skip (orange to black for example).

If you still think a corded mouse is the best option, the new White Apple Pro mouse has a 6" longer cord, which will reach the left side of an iBook better than the clear corded mouse, which is a bit too short. Using a wireless mouse does free up 1 USB port, if that matters to you.

It does take a few seconds to find it once you turn it on.

I give it 4 stars due to the additional weight and startup delay.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it...
I Really, REALLY wanted to love this mouse. I think Apple's USB optical pro mouse is perhaps the most perfect mouse I've ever used (including multi-button and scroll-wheel mice). I always thought that the only thing that would make it better was to make it wireless. So when Apple announced this bluetooth mouse I quickly purchased it.

Having owned it for about a month now, I can tell you flat out that I don't like it. It seems bigger than the optical mouse (I think this is because the pro mouse has a coating a clear plastic, because they look the same size next to each other, but it still "feels" bigger in my hand), heavier, and less responsive (Sometimes it doesn't move at an even speed with the hand - it kind of jerks).

In addition, it can take upwards of five seconds to de detected by the computer, and sometimes has an annoying habit of beining completely unresponsive after I wake up the computer from putting it to sleep. The only solution I've found is to turn off the mouse until it disconnects, and then turning it back on.

All in all I think I wasted my money on this mouse. I've been using it since I purchased it, but as of now it is going into the extra computer stuff drawer. I love Apple dearly, but this mouse isn't for me. Too bad, because I still haven't found anything useful for my bluetooth module. Perhaps I also wasted my money on the BT module as well?

4-0 out of 5 stars Great partner for Powerbooks
This is my third attempt at a portable mouse for my PB. First was the Targus USB wireless minimouse which was tiny and worked great, but had no off switch (had to remove batts). Second came the full-sized Kensington USB wireless which had a neat compartment for the USB receiver and could be turned off, but wouldn't track on many surfaces and whose construction was very cheap (resulting in a very short lifespan). I had held off on this mouse for a while due to the price. I finally took the plunge a month ago and have no regrets! BT mouse is great! Extremely easy setup. My PB detects it usually in 2-3 seconds. It also tracks (nearly) as well as the Targus minimouse (which could handle ANY surface). Only a few hiccups on the shiny formica at B&N. The off switch is cleverly placed and protects the optics while loose in my laptop bag. Design is clean, classic Apple. One of my favorite things about this mouse is the fact that you can check on battery levels from System Preferences on your powerbook!!! The only negs I can think of are that I do miss right clicks and the wheel somewhat. Not nearly enough to go back to the others though... Strongly recommend!

5-0 out of 5 stars Catch This Little Mouse
Apple's Bluetooth Mouse is the first thing that I've bought that makes use of the Bluetooth capability of my computer. While I've heard that Bluetooth doesn't really speed up the method of sync-ing your PDA with your computer, it does make a nice extra for laptop users wanting to go back to using a mouse.

A warning though--make sure your firmware and software is up-to-date when you install and begin to use the mouse. Also, it helps to confirm that your bluetooth module is actually working. Funnily enough, mine was on the fritz and had to be repaired, but now it all works like a charm. My PowerBook easily adapts from going between trackpad and mouse i.e., I don't have to make any changes--I just start using one or the other.

I also have not had the problems that other users have had regarding waking from sleep. My mouse connects back up with the computer just fine. I just "double-click" the body to wake it up and can see from the bluetooth icon in the menu bar that it's re-connected. I have noticed that it works better on a mousepad or other surface, and suggest that you should do so, although others tell me it works fine anywhere. When I use it on the bare surface of my desk, I seem to keep picking up dirt, hair, dust, etc. It also works well from across the room, useful for presentations and the like.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
My experience with the Apple Wireless Mouse has not been good. It tracks poorly on most surfaces that I worked with, especially with fine motion. It seemed to fare best on textured surfaces such as thin cloth, or a mouse pad. For that reason, I'd strongly recommend that you use a mouse pad with this product.

I also have problems with the Mac not pairing with the mouse when I turn it off, then turn it back on. This is a common problem, and the recommended solution is to update to the latest Bluetooth firmware. However, I am already using the latest version of the firmware (I installed it before I installed the mouse, per the instructions), and I'm still having the problem with pairing after power on.

The mouse is beautiful and very comfortable to work with when it's paired and is being used on a surface that it likes. However, its aesthetics and ergonomics are not enough for me to continue using this device, and I can't recommend it to anyone else, either. I suggest visiting Macworld to read their reviews of other wireless mice to consider one of those instead. (I'm also told, btw, that the non-rechargeable batteries for this mouse don't last long, but I can't speak to that since I don't plan to keep this mouse long enough to find out about battery life.) ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Mini Mouse!! Download the driver from their website.
I used to have problem with this mouse for the first year: it won't work on the light color mouse pad, the point is always un-steable,..... just SO Hard to control! We tried to install the driver, clean the exterior, change the mouse pad with dark color background..... It just won't work. My husband gave one last try by downloading the driver from their web site, and, this time, it WORKS!! My problem solved! This mouse has been like a pro ever since!! Steable, Sharp, and easy to control!

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work on some standard desktops
My main gripe about this mouse is that it is somewhat picky about what surfaces it will work with. I have other optical mice that work fine on my standard grey desk; however, the Kensington Optical Pocketmouse just won't work on that surface. It will work on mousepads and many wood surfaces, however. It's a decent mouse otherwise, but I expect more versatility from a device designed for travel.

4-0 out of 5 stars nice little mouse
This is a nice little mouse. Large enough to use, but small enough to hide in the corner of your shoulder bag. It doesn't look like the white mouse pictured, but I don't mind - it's better, translucent with its red glow. The only gripe I have is that I don't seem to be able to customize the behavior of the scroll wheel, and its default behavior is to scroll a tiny bit (too little) in individual clicks, but large bits (too large) when scrolled more quickly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great travel mouse
I've had this mouse for 1.5 years now and use it when on the road, during off site presentations, and when working at home. It's compact, comes with a stuff sack, and best of all works on my thigh while I'm trapped in a crowded airplane.

2-0 out of 5 stars It Broke!!
I have had this mouse for almost a year now, and a couple of months ago it started flaking out, not always clicking when I clicked. Then I had to start unplugging and re-plugging it to get it to turn on. Eventually it just stopped turning on all together. We tested other USB devices on my laptop, and found that it was indeed a mouse problem. We even tried the mouse on several different computers. I'm working on contacting Kensington to replace it, but so far I've only recieved an e-mail parroting back to me my original complaint. ... Read more
