Gadget of the Week

Kensington Si750m Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse

 

Pros

Uses laser for even greater precision and fluidity in use than conventional optical

Wireless operation

Micro small dimensions make this mouse very pocketable

Stylish appearance

Nice flip open door allows storage of the mini wireless USB adaptor

Storing the mini wireless USB adaptor in the mouse automatically switches off the mouse

Five year warranty as standard

Also available in a pink Si750 LE version in support of the Breast Cancer Campaign

 

Cons

Small size makes operation somewhat less comfortable particularly for larger hands

Left and right mouse buttons require a little more pressure than I would like

No case provided so mouse could be scratched or damaged in transit

Consumes batteries

Plug in wireless receiver takes up a potentially valuable USB port on your computer unlike those that utilise for example Bluetooth

The 2.4GHz frequency utilised could suffer from interference to or by other 2.4Ghz devices

The MouseWorks software needed to configure the mouse isnt provided on a disk with the mouse, instead it has to be downloaded

 

 

Price: c £25 inc. VAT

 

 

Star Rating: 7 Stars  A good notebook mouse, particularly well suited to female (smaller) hands
