I have a Logitech MX3100 which has been replaced by the MX3200, and I really enjoy the mouse, it is fantastic!!! It is a large and comfortable mouse to use. I also have a Microsoft Trackball, yeah it is 5 years old, but it is large and comfortable to use. I am a man and I have standard man-sized hands. So I prefer to use a larger mouse than the typical user. This last November, I found a really nice looking Bluetooth mouse. The design in very nice and pretty straight forward. It has 5 buttons and an on/off switch. It comes in black and I really wanted it, in fact, it made it on the TechnoLUST list.
I was not sure if I really wanted to order the mouse or not; but every time I went online RadTech kept popping up and so I ordered the BT600. I was notified in the order process that the mouse was back-ordered. I decided, it must be pretty popular.
About 2 weeks ago I finally got my BT600, disappoint set in as soon as I opened the shipping box. The write up on the website said full-sized mouse. It didn’t look full-sized to me in fact it looked more like the wife’s notebook mouse I had been using [and am still stuck with]. As you can see in my picture that the BT600 is larger than a micro-mouse and smaller than my MX1000. I was saddened by this fact.
I used it for a day or two and it just didn’t settle with me, especially because OS X didn’t recognize it and allow for the 5 button functionality that I need [okay not really but it saves a bunch of hand movements].
I just couldn’t live with this mouse being undersized and without its full functionality. What can I say, am I a mouse snob? I don’t know, but I would love to see, Microsoft, Logitech, Belkin, Kensington, or RadTech make a full-sized Bluetooth mouse that doesn’t need a desktop recharger [and some of those desktop mice have been small]. What I would love more than that is a full-sized trackball that is Bluetooth, but I will probably pass out from holding my breath before I see that.
Is there a problem with people’s hands shrinking that I am not aware of? Or do these companies just thinking everybody wants a tiny ‘notebook’ mouse??!
I am still searching for a good mouse to go with my MacBook Black.
