Wireless. Why yes, of course.
Look here, you guys:
This here is the Canyon CNS-CMSWO1. Quite a mouthful and not the most sexy colourful name one should think of. The shape is ok-ish but doesn’t fit my hands quite right. But that’s individual taste and flavour and everybody’s own decision.
The tracking is very nice and changable between 1000/1200/1600dpi. This is cool and should even satisfy the casual gamers among you. I don’t game and didn’t notice any latency, so it should be good for the money. Talking about money, my mouse costed me the princely sum of 129 ZAR = not even 9 €UR. I guess that’s not the cheapest way to start your collection of wireless mousies but the cheapest way to get one in a decent size.
What I also didn’t like is that the Canyon mouse uses 2 AAA batteries instead of the more heavy and powerful AA batteries as used in my Logitech rodents. At least two non-rechargable batteries are included with the mouse, so you can start mousing right away, without purchasing batteries and charger first.
And what I positively liked is the small compartment inside the mouse, where you can store your dongle when you’re out and about. That’s nifty and even my Logitech Performance MX lacks this much-needed commodity.
The build quality is very light compared to my Logitechs. I hear many if not most of you prefer lightweight mouses, so this thing seems cool for you. Of course the plastic doesn’t give the same quality feel as that of more classy higher priced rodents but is reasonably well made. And if it falls apart after half a year … who gives a phuk about a 10 Dollar mouse? Did I mention it’s wireless? And only 10 Dollars? Wireless mouse for 10 dollers Americaigne!
As you might have noticed I’ve avoided to use the terms awesome and amazing in this writeup. The wireless technology is pretty much advanced these days and should be no problem even for small no-name manufacturers, and the longevity of this product is still to be decided. So, for now I guess this is a very decent mouse but not sure if it’s awesome or outstanding in any way.
