It is all new to me but it is awesome. My brother in law bought it for me and it is so cool. I just wanted to share my excitement and say that I am one step up on the wireless connection. LOL Has any one else here gotten one yet? Well I am sure many people do as I am always way behind the times. LOL! What are the advantages and disadvantages of it? and would you ever go back to a wired mouse?

I find a wireless mouse almost an essential piece of equipment and would be very reluctant to return to using a wired version now. It is quite surprising just how much difference it really makes having no cables to contend with. I never seemed to notice the cable when I used the old mice, but after trying a wireless one the old ones seem restrictive.

I think so too. Once I upgrade on something it is very hard to go back to the old way.

I have one on both my desktop and lap top. I love them. They are so handy and easy to use. The only disadvantage I have found is you have to replace batteries. Not a big problem but with a cord mouse that is not an issue. I hope you are enjoying yours.

They can be really good, but I used to have one and if I forgot to put it in the cradle to charge then I would not be able to use it...But it was great..

My husband got me one and I didn't relaly like it =) I kept dropping it on the floor when I would go to reach for it and one day I dropped it and it broke apart, not bad I just didn't know how to put it back together. OS I went out and got a regular corded mouse and haven't gone back to the cordless one =) I prefer the mouse with a cord.

I had one and i ended up chucking it out.. the advantages of course is no plug... the disadvantage is it sucks batteries like water.. soon your spending tons on batteries.. i ended up just buying an optical with a plug..

Lol I'm still living in the past. I do not have have a wireless mouse, but having had a wireless connection. I'm not sure it is something I want to do. I love the concept though, but I think at the moment I will stick with my hardwire. A friend of mine did have wireless mouse, and told me she had problems with it. Maybe it all depends on our computers.
