PRODUCT INSTALLATION


Through some online research on this particular product, I found some people stating that they had one hell of a time installing the drivers and software and getting the mouse working properly. With this firmly set in the back of my mind, I tried my kick at the cat.



First thing you will want to do it turn the mouse over and make sure the power switch is set to off.



Turn the mouse over and install the two AAA batteries in the palm portion. After that is done, you are now finished with the hardware portion of the install.


After the batteries are installed, go ahead and install the Bluetooth Adapter software WITHOUT the adapter installed. Reboot the computer and then insert the adapter and allow Windows to install the appropriate drivers. After this is done, you are going to want to again turn the mouse over, turn the switch to on and then push the gray pairing/reset button beside the optical sensor.



After you have pressed the button, the mouse wheel will illuminate which means it is ready for pairing with the adapter. From here on in, all you have to do is follow the instructions included with the package and in 30 seconds you will have a working mouse. I am not going to rehash them here and confuse you seeing the instructions are about as perfect as you can get.


This is where I scratch my head in confusion and wonder how anyone had a problem installing this device. From cracking open the package to initial use took maybe 2-3 minutes. If you follow the included instructions to the letter, you won't have a problem.

 

PRODUCT USE & TESTING




The first thing that will catch your eye is just how small this mouse is compared to the regular variety. Although awkward at first, an hour's worth of use will have you happily working away without even noticing you have literally half of a mouse in your hand.



Normal computer work is just like any other mouse on the market. Response is spot on and there is no delay in movement whatsoever. The only time you will have a small one second delay is if you step away from the computer for a while and the mouse goes into some sort of sleep mode. A small wiggle of the mouse and a 1-2 second wait will have everything back online.


Gaming was also very good with this little peripheral. I played my usual two hour daily BF1942 binge and never found one problem with accuracy, movement or delay. So if your main hang up is the questionable gaming, don't worry, it games completely fine and because if its light weight, you can execute quick movements with relative ease.
