Ultraslim Portable Mouse by Samsung

Spotted this ultraslim mouse by Samsung the other day and I thought it would be perfect for a netbook. At just 8mm thin, this could probably be the slimmest optical mouse I’ve seen ever.

The mouse has simple yet unique design, especially the rotating wheel around the center button. Rotating it clockwise scrolls the page down and counter-clockwise scrolls the page up. The center button represents left click while the right-click is enabled on the right side of the outer wheel (much like the clickwheel of the old iPods).

The USB cable is fastened at the front side with a small lever at the other end allows you to retract the cables back inside the device. There’s a blue light from inside the mouse the leaks out thru the openings (it somewhat glows in the dark).

Being too slim has its drawbacks — the mouse isn’t ergonomic so you may find it a little tiring after prolonged use. Comes with a leather pouch and costs a bit pricey at Php1,350.

  3. That’s carpal tunnel syndrome waiting to happen…

    Still, better that than the ridiculous side-buttons of HP Mini netbook touchpads.

  15. I do think that it’s not economical to use it because of its price. It has the same function as an optical mouse nothing more.

  17. at least to me, that’s the most comfortable… although, it doesn’t work smooth on shiny surfaces. works best over a bond paper… based on experience. :)

  19. for the price range, i’d rather go for an entry-level wacom digitizing tablet. that would be more practical, since i’m into graphics.
