I wanted to write a quick post to tell the world of what has been one of the best purchases I've made in a very long time. In fact, as far as technology goes, I'd say this gadget is second only to my Macbook in terms of how useful it has been!
Basically, I was looking for a good wireless 3-button mouse for my Macbook. Making the switch to a Mac was fairly easy, but I still need my 3 buttons! Also, I wanted something that was portable, but not as small and hard to use as many laptop mice.
I was shopping for some cheap Macbook RAM at NCIX, and I though that I may as well grab a cheap mouse while I was at it. I stumbled across the black BenQ M310+ Wireless Rechargable Optical Scroll Mouse. Here's a photo:
Anyhow, the mouse has been just awesome, I'm very glad I bought it. The little USB dongle tucks into the mouse itself when it's being stored. The batteries are rechargeable, and they're actually recharged by a USB cable that comes with the mouse! That means that you can still use the mouse while it's recharging. The batteries last for a very long time, it's quite surprising just how seldom I need to get out the USB cable.
Also, the mouse itself has a nice sturdy feel, it's doesn't feel at all like a cheap laptop mouse. It's just the right size, in that it's small enough to transport easily and tuck away in the laptop bag, but not so small that it's uncomfortable to use.
If ever this mouse breaks or dies, I will be buying exactly the same one again!
