LX5 Cordless Mouse

Much like the keyboard, the mouse included with the bundle, the LX5, doesn't offer too much to write home about. The unit is a little smaller than most, but not overly so. The LX5 offers two standard mouse click buttons and a clickable scroll wheel that also tilts both left and right, for a total of five mouse buttons. Below the scroll wheel is a battery status indicator.

As you may have noticed, there are a few scuff marks around the seam below the battery indicator. This was my fault, as I didn't read the directions nor even look at the underside of the mouse when trying to open the battery compartment for the first time. Yeah, smart move, I know. Had I looked on the bottom of the mouse, I would have noticed the slider that you see above, which releases the battery compartment cover. There is also a red connect button and on / off button with status indicator, as well as the tracking laser and four large Teflon style mouse feet.

The USB wireless receiver works for both the keyboard and mouse. As was the case with the keyboard and mouse, there is a connection button on the top of the receiver to aid in this task. The USB cable has plenty of length to reach your desk even from behind your computer.

Software and installation just ahead.
