IOGEAR Wireless Laser Travel Mouse1600 GME227R detailed review



Precision and value in a small package


The IOGEAR GME227R is a portable wireless laser mouse primarily aimed at laptop users. It features in an antibacterial coating of titanium dioxide and silver nano-particle compound. This coating prevents bacteria from surviving on the surface of the device.

The ergonomics of this little mouse is asymmetric, and the design suits a right-handed person. It is wireless, is powered by 2 AAA batteries, and weighs only 82 grams-light enough for comfortable use.

The GME227R has a 1600 dpi resolution, which is more than enough for regular use. The USB wireless transmitter effectively covers a distance of about 6 feet. The mouse also features a power switch at its base to conserve batteries when not in use. It's a universal plug-and-play device-no drivers required; it support Mac as well.

The mouse is so nimble as to respond to even the smallest of hand movements. Tracking is sensitive enough for speedy word processing and office use. The tactile feel of the right and the left clicks are delicate, whereas the vertical scroll wheel, integrated with the middle click, is slightly stiffer. The small size is a problem for prolonged use, as in a gaming session. A snap-in USB transmitter is missing; its inclusion would improve the portability of the product.

The package contains an extremely useful USB extension, and also a velvet pouch. There is a comprehensive manual and a 3-year limited warranty.

This is a decent laptop mouse, and best suited for regular office applications. Rs 3,000 is a littel steep for a mouse.
