What advantages does this mouse have?
A smart silver and black mouse, this is great for everyday use and is simple and easy to use. Measuring 95mm x 56mm x 30.85mm the mouse has three buttons including a metallic scroll wheel for easy and quick navigation in documents and on the web. It’s also symmetrical so it’s suitable for right and left-handed users and comes with a long 1.2m cable.

Is this mouse plug and play?
This mouse is compatible with Window 7, 8, 8.1 and 10, just plug the mouse into a USB socket a carry on with your work, it’s a simple as that. No batteries are required as the mouse gets all its power from the USB cable.

What is BlueTrace?
The BlueTrace LED sensor ensures a smooth and precise tracking for the mouse and can be used on almost any surface. It works using the blue LED beam with an image sensor and pixel geometry to build a high contrast picture of most surfaces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor I found it impossible to turn the scroll wheel without activating the 'middle button' function. Useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Basic Mouse This mouse is well-made and worked perfectly "out of the box" with my Windows 8.1 PC. The "click" actions are positive and the scroll wheel has a good feel. It also throws out a cool blue glow that looks quite attractive at night. If you want a good basic mouse at a reasonable price then this one is worth considering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from problem with scroll wheel whenever i use the wheel to scroll, it disables the mouse. i have to scroll again to enable it. i cant use the wheel to scroll. changed the wheel settings, removed any conflicting software from previous mouse but the scroll still does not work as it should. the other 2 buttons work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasently suprised I recently bought this mouse, and has work well so far. It has a good DPI, the laser is perfect, and is good for just a tenner. My 2 biggest problems have to be it can be a bit uncomfortable to use due to no side parts and the scroll wheel feels a bit odd. I would highly recommend this mouse though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Odd shape The holes at either side of the mouse are just odd. They make the mouse rather uncomfortable to use. The mouse is also a little smaller than a typical mouse so feels a little awkward. Suggest trying one before you consider purchasing in order to see if it suits.
