      I got this mouse to use with an Asus 1005PE Netbook and it exceeds expectations. I had it up and running in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu/Linux within minutes. The included directions are predictably bad so I threw them away, inserted batteries and was off and running using the Netbook’s built in Bluetooth. It shows up as a standard HID mouse so it uses standard drivers in both Windows and Ubuntu and no software install needed. The mouse itself is light and feels a bit fragile but build quality is decent. I find that it tracks well on a variety of both glossy and textured surfaces and have used it on my work desk, granite kitchen counters and as well as some atypical surfaces like an ultra-suede couch cushion (next to me while I am in front of the TV) and even my jeans pant leg and it works suprisingly well. I keep my Netbook in sleep mode when I am not using it so the mouse powers off automatically after 5 mins and my battery life has been fine so far. It seems to pair back up very quickly when I start back up. Overall, you can’t beat it for the price. I am going to buy another one to use on my work laptop.

      Update: the price of this item seems to have more that doubled since I bought one a short time ago. Mine was sold by “gigacity” and fulfilled by Amazon but they seem to be replaced by a new vendor. Search around Amazon and you should be able to find this item for a price in the low teens.

      I bought this mouse about 4 months ago and it still works great.

      Pros:
      Easy to install, just pair it with Bluetooth, and it installs within a few minutes.
      Compact.
      Good range: I put my laptop close to the TV for a larger display and operate the mouse about 7′ away with no issues.

      Cons:
      There’s no on/off switch.
      Batteries (2 AAA) drain quickly since I keep my laptop on 24/7.
      When the batteries are new, it is too sensitive and jumps around the screen making it difficult to click on a button. This is VERY frustrating and makes you feel ucoordinated!
      It does not come with specific drivers. You’re forced to use generic MS drivers and you cannot adjust the sensitivity to correct the above problem.

      Conclusion:
      I would not purchase this product again. I will spend the extra few dollars to get more control over parameters (i.e., sensitivity).

      I bought this mouse for use with a netbook with bluetooth, and it’s incredibly easy to use and it was a lot cheaper than other ones that I looked at. There’s a button on the bottom that you push to put it in discovery mode, and after that you push the button to turn it on-I’m still on the first set of batteries but haven’t used it much. Opening the battery compartment is a little confusing, because I expected it to be on the bottom and it’s on the top on the rear portion, but there are directions that clear that up.
