Any pros and cons or recommendations?

Thanks

Re: bluetooth mouse

I use one on my laptop.
It is the Microsoft Sculpt and utilised the laptop's built-in Bluetooth. I wanted a cordless mouse but didn't want anything sticking out from the USB ports.
It works fine, just like any mouse would. Batteries last forever too!
On Windows 10 the touch pad is automatically disabled as soon as the mouse is used!

Re: bluetooth mouse

If its only used occasionally I guess bluetooth is alright, but I got fed up with forever charging batteries. Recently went and got a corded mouse and life seems a whole lot easier! But then I'm using mine all day for work (and evenings too for not-work).

Re: bluetooth mouse

On my desktop I use a battery powered keyboard and mouse for 16 hours day. Batteries last about 6 months (not rechargeable though)!
