A very fortuitous Woot! offering for me. My new laptop arrived this morning, and I was thinking about getting a mouse for it. It has bluetooth, so this way I can avoid needing to use up one of its USB ports for the mouse receiver. In for two!

I see you're no Nostradamus. Maybe you can save one of your predictions, since you made 3, if it sells out by midnight CDT.

Good Afternoon, does anyone know what's the dpi specification of this mouse?

PT Barnum most likely never said that... ;-) History, unfortunately, has misdirected this quotation. Barnum never did say it. Actually, it was said by his competitor.

I needed a new mouse since my wife did a little bit of breaking of my old one.

In for 3. One for me, one for the wife, and maybe a stocking stuffer or something.

Haha, I was just coming back to say they have 54% left, I'm guessing they bought out over 10,000 of these. Last time they had cheap mice for sale they sold out in all the popular colors before I woke up, and sold out of the rest by 12 PST.

It Could still sellout but it's less likely.

Thanks!



Android 3.0 and up has built-in mouse support. Anything below that is hit or miss depending on the device. A cursor will show up and only the left mouse button will work. There is no right click yet in Android.

It's late in the day, so i know nobody cares at this point, but i have one of these - it came in a package deal with a moto BT keyboard.

This is totally worth the money - I've got a bunch of android tablets & it works well with all of them - it also works great with a windows 7 netbook & a windows 8 tablet. It's not too light, has an on/off switch to save battery, good tracking, pairs easily, size makes it a good pocket/travel mouse.

Someone asked about on of the buttons being raised - not sure why the picture is like that, the actual mouse is not.

tl;dr: good mouse; good buy.

WANT. This is exactly what I'm looking for to use when I DJ. Frees up an extra USB port for my WootOff siren lights! (Seriously. They keep people from bumping into the table.)

I'm currently using a nice $35 Microsoft Bluetooth mouse with my MacBook Pro and I'm thinking of picking up this $5 mouse as a spare for other bags or work locations.

Does anyone know if this mouse has an on/off switch? The specs don't say. I had an old Bluetooth mouse without a switch and that meant the batteries drained in the bag as the buttons got hit. The Microsoft mouse has a power switch.



Yes it does have an on/off switch, you can see it in the picture of the bottom of the mouse.

Can I put in a request now, like mailing a letter to the woot Santa Claus on the Woot pole, for a BT keyboard to go with the mouse? For $5 I can pick up a mouse that isn't a great need, but I neeeeeeeeeed a BT keyboard for my old HP Pavillion with a busted-up one!

I'm sure you've been told 500 times so here's 501, the third picture in the description shows an on off switch.

Don't really get why a tiny, tiny, tiny mouse is so popular. For my desktop, I have a normal mouse. For my laptop, I have a slightly smaller but still decent-sized mouse. For my touchscreen devices...uh, why would I need a mouse for those?

Do people just like tiny electronic products?

Have to laugh at all the sellout predictions, too. Classic.

This one was my first one, but from what I've read, you get them almost by a secret trigger that is supposedly different from month to month?

In general, it's activity on deals.woot that earns the $5 Jumbowoot coupons, but what exact activity varies from month to month.

You could check some other DOD websites. Tanga is having a bluetooth sale today. Mostly earpieces, but they do have a keyboard.

It's not pointless at all. It works amazingly for Splashtop 2 HD (on my Nexus 7) and for streaming games on OnLive. It's great for document editing as well.

well, yeah... but you have to pay shipping for all additional items, which tends to botch the deal somewhat.

Yeah, and the last time I bought with them took 2 weeks just to tell me they are sending my stuff (a lie) so I ended cancelling all the deal, since then I will never buy anything from them. Good luck with them and their lies.

I didn't think that at first but now that you mention it. All it needs is a red scanning light under the 2 mouse keys.

Okay, maybe I'm a child of the '80s but am I the only one who thought "Knight Rider" when they saw that picture of the mouse on the splash screen?

My package arrived today. Try as I might, I am unable to complete pairing with any BT-capable host. I tested with a HP TouchPad, a Sony PS3, and a WinNT6.0.6002 system. The MOTO BT Mouse does broadcast its presence. All hosts successfully detect it, initiate the process to pair, then just stay in that state indefinitely, and never actually and successfully complete the process. Does anyone have any hint? (Yes, functional batteries, charged LSD Ni-MH and new alkaline, were tested in the mouse.)

Same here. I tried on a windows 7 laptop and a windows xp one. All BT drivers are up to date. The Xp machine won't even recognize it. The windows 7 machine will show that it installs it and that it is available in the devices and printers menu but the blue led on the mouse keeps blinking like its still in pairing mode , so it won't fully connect and work.
