Poker / Weramouse Mouse
Intro: I review a lot of products and come across many sites through blogs such as Engadget and Gizmodo. Here I saw this mouse and thought I give it a try. The Pokermouse V2 is a pistol grip style mouse. It's a bit different than any other mouse I’ve come across.
Design: Made of plastic the mouse feels good in hand. It says proudly made in China which I found kind of funny. But what isn’t made in China these days. It came with a usb cable to charge the internal battery. Receive to go wireless. A simple manual and of course the Pokermouse. Overall the quality as good as my Microsoft PC mouse. It feels good in hand and should last a good while. According the manual the battery should last at least 3 years.
Function: First grab the usb cable and the Pokermouse and connect it to the laptop or PC. A red light will show up this means it’s charging. When it turns green then your mouse is fully charged. Next connect the receiver to an open usb port. Now you have to pair the two together. There is a button on the bottom of the Pokermouse and a button on the receiver. Once I press both buttons at the same time a couple of seconds later the mouse cursor moves and I’m all set. I used the mouse online and to play some Yahoo free games online. And found that the mouse works remarkably well. Very similar to a real mouse. Except you could be lying in bed and player various games online. Something you can’t do with your wired PC mouse. The trackball works pretty similar to the built in trackpad in my HP 2140. It's not perfect but better than expected.
Conclusion: This is an excellent mouse for those who like to surf the web or play online games. For the slacker it’s perfect. The ability to get unwired and move around the mouse is great. It sort of the interactive feel of the Wii controller. For someone like me who is constantly on the computer this mouse is great while I can browse a site from a distance.
