Looks good. I better get to invoicing folks. I hope the advertisers are making out ok. You folks might as well be giving stuff away. Every deal I have seen is freaking awesome!
“… you can adjust the mouse’s size to fit your hand..” – as long as it’s your right hand.
Re: Left handed version?
That’s my problem too.
What does the battery life look like? I know you said that the mouse goes into sleep mode when it stops moving but how long do the batteries last before I have to replace them on average?
$29.99 on the manufacturer’s website and $39.99 on Amazon, so not really 50% off.
Does Techdirt even vet these “deals”? I understand t not being able to vet the product but surely confirmation of the actual sale price can be done… This is a typical “mark it up 75% and put a 25% off sticker on it” scheme.
Amazon is also having a sale. It’s 59.99 on Amazon normally but they have it marked down 33%. (Now 39.99)
The manufacturer also has it marked down as well.
49.99 -> 29.99
But they link to Amazon as well where it’s still 39.99
While I dont’t mind wireless keyboards (they tend to last at least six months, sometimes up to a year before replacing the battery) my experience with wireless mice is that I always have to change the batteries and they always die at the worst possible time leaving me scrambling to find replacements. I used to use wireless keyboards and mice but after having to deal with the issue of having to look everywhere for batteries too many times I now stick with wired.
I had similar issues, I now use a mouse and keyboard that have rechargeable batteries, and they charge through a micro usb so my phone charger works on them. Normally I can plug them in when I’m away but if I get caught in the middle of something then it becomes a corded device.
I’m still using an old wireless PS/2 ball mouse. It uses two AAA batteries and goes through rechargeable ones in about a week. Which is why I always keep one set charged so that when the mouse dies, I can just swap batteries.
You can adjust the width, but not the length. It’s still really short compared to older mice. And frankly, I hate the concave sides.
When was it decided that everyone’s mouse hand was only about 3 inches long? Are these mice designed for a 5-year old? It’s like they’re all competing to see who can make the smallest mouse.
I could use a new mouse, but I’m not going to spend $30 for something that could fit entirely inside the case of my present mouse.
I’m starting to think I might have to do that though. Buy a decent wireless mouse, take out the guts and mount them in an older mouse case.
Trying to save money hurts when you see deals like this.
Just yesterday, my friend and I were out scavenging the bulk trash in our town and I grabbed a garbage bag that seemed to have a lot of little, interesting things in it. When we got home and sorted out all the junk I found a R.A.T. gaming mouse in the bottom of the bag! I haven’t tried it yet (I was tired last night), but I didn’t see anything wrong with it.
Note: When I say I took a trash bag full of “junk”, I mean things like old papers, empty plastic packages, little toys, etc. It’s not like I dig through bags full of wet, slimy household garbage. Although people do put such stuff out for bulk trash, usually 90% of what they put out is just old stuff that’s been in boxes in their attic or basement. We don’t take anything that would make the average person go “Ewww.” Just wanted to make that clear. 🙂
