Mice and USB may not be the most exciting computer hardware, but they are very necessary pieces of hardware. Saitek has been making mice and other computer peripherals for a very long time and they have always done a good job.
- Precision optical technology – 800 dpi
- 3 buttons and rubberised scroll wheel
- Designed for left- and right-handers
- 4 USB 2.0 Hi-Speed ports
- Powered through USB cable – no external power required
As laptops get more popular peripherals for them will also get more popular. Mini mice and hubs are great because you can easily fit them in a bag and not worry about them taking up a lot of space.
The notebook mouse comes in 19 different colors and the USB hub comes in 11 colors. Many of the colors for the mouse are the same for the Hub, so if you want, you can get a matching set that matches your laptop or computer.
Both the mouse and the hub share a very similar design. They are the same color and they are very small. The mouse is not only a great size for notebooks, but also for people with small hands like children.
Both the mouse and the hub light up when they are plugged in. The mouse lights up around the edges and around the scroll wheel with a light blue color. The hub has a small light on top that switches between blue, green and red.
The USB plugs go around the outside of the HUB. The bottom of the hub stores the USB plug.
The mouse and hub both performed just as I expected them to. With an accuracy of 800 DPI the mouse probably would not be the best for gaming, but it works great for using programs and surfing the web.
Warranty and Support
Saitek provides a decent two year warranty on all of its products. Considering how much you will probably be using them, if something is going to go wrong then it will probably happen before the two years is up.
While mice and USB hubs are not glamorous, they do serve a very important function. These work really well and are comfortable to use. I feel comfortable recommending them to anyone looking for a portable mouse and hub. As always compare prices before purchasing.
