At a Glance
- Comfortable streamlined design
- small footprint
- good scroll wheel
- no wireless dropouts
- frees USB port
- May be too traditional if looking for standard-mouse alternatives
- requires Bluetooth-compatible Mac (USB wireless and wired versions are available)
The Comfort Mouse performed exceptionally well with no apparent signal break up or need for external USB dongle, supplied with some earlier mice, to ensure a connection. The freedom to scroll wirelessly is a real plus here, although a mousemat still makes sense when sitting at a desk. Usage over extended time remained comfortable and the small footprint makes the Belkin an ideal travel partner or for those short of desk space.
Belkin offers a range of devices under the
Comfort Mouse brand including this top-of-the-range Bluetooth option. Small, slim and stylish, the Bluetooth Comfort Mouse is light even with batteries and extremely tactile in the hand.
Set-up took less than a minute under System Preferences and required little in the way of tweaking. A laser optical sensor makes gliding across most surfaces a breeze and the mouse sports vertical and horizontal scrolling.
