    TechNet® M002 2.4 GHz Nano Cordless Optical Mouse Red

    The TechNet M002 2.4 GHz Nano Cordless Optical Mouse is a portable mouse suitable for on the go road warriors. It measures 107.5 mm (4.23 in) in length, 65.5 mm (2.6 in) in width and 41.5 mm (1.63 in) in height. So it’s slightly smaller than a standard desktop mouse. Compared to my E-Blue Cobra II standard desktop corded mouse which measures 127 mm (5 in) in length, 50.8 mm (2 in) in width and 88.9 mm (3.5 in) in height, the TechNet mouse fit’s better in your laptop bag.
    It runs on a 2.4GHZ frequency which includes its own USB receiver. It has an operating theoretical distance of 15m or 49.21 ft. Now if you are behind heavy walls (concrete, metal, etc.) then expect the distance to be shorter due to signal interruption. My cut off distance was 24.1 ft. That was tested from a room with a closed wooden door and down the hallway. Cut off distance with the door open was 32.1 ft. I run a router with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies from the same room. Although the router signal seems not to affect the mouse frequency as it was turned off and then back on for the test.
    It can easily be connected to any PC running Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, Linux (Ubuntu) and Mac OS X with the receiver. I have tested the mouse in various surfaces including several types of wood surfaces, metallic, a mouse pad (black) and matte finish surfaces. The only jumps I’ve seen were on the matte surface. I had to use the mouse pad in order to stop the cursor from jumping.
    It feels comfortable on my right hand, although I wouldn’t recommend it for a left handed person if you intend to use the forward and back button frequently. Otherwise using the scroll wheel and the front buttons is quite easy.

    The mouse weighs in at about 2.8oz and it doesn’t have that cheap feel to it. Even with my large hands, my fingers lay well enough to be comfortable.
    Over all I have bought 3 of them as am very satisfy with its responsiveness. It’s definitely a 4.5 star mouse for daily use/activities but Amazon only let’s me give it a 4. Gave it a 4.5 due to a one time fall failure and the surface it didn’t work on. Works well with office applications, the above mentioned operating systems and browsers. Back and forward buttons worked as intended. DPI levels are not important to me as it’s just a way to move the mouse from point A on the screen to point B (movement across the screen). Setting a high DPI on a low resolution screen might make the mouse jump and be inaccurate. Just remember, that higher DPI doesn’t mean that it’s better. The practical DPI setting is determined by many factors including screen resolution, DPI set on the mouse, sensitivity set on the software, etc.
    Facts: I bought the first 2 TechNet mice as gifts on 12/2014 to go with 2 new HP Pavilion X2 10.1 inch Detachable 2 in 1 Touchscreen Laptops (64GB versions), running Windows 8.1 32-bit, 1.33 GHz Quad Core Intel Atom Z3736F CPU, 2 GB DDR3L SDRAM and Intel HD graphics. It has been used to play Minecraft, Roblox and similar games on steam like Unturned and the mouse works perfectly. Additional testing was done on tile floor (Beige), Tatami floor mats (blue) and on the bed sheets (white cotton) and it has worked out with no problems. I don’t recommend using it on the floor or the Tatami mats as little dust particles get in the mice and it can easily get scratched.
    The last TechNet mouse was bought on 3/2015 to go with a new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series i7537T-1122sLV 15 in Touchscreen Laptop running Windows 8 64-bit Home, Intel 2.7 GHz 8082 Core i5 4210U CPU, 6GB DDR3 RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4400. The system was later updated to windows 10 Home and the mouse worked without any issues in either case. USB 2.0 and 3.0 were tested on the same system and the receiver had no issues communicating with the mouse. All three mouse are running on the same Duracell AA alkaline batteries.
    After several months of use (5 months, mouse #3) failed due to a 5 foot drop to a wooden floor. Receiver was still working since it was attached to the computer and the body of the mouse didn’t break. Most likely a wire got loose inside the mouse but I didn’t bother to check it.

    Why so much detail?
    This is so people know that the reviewed item can run on some old hardware/software stable and without conflicts as well as new hardware/software. Certain types of surfaces and also for those that want extra little details. :-D. I waited a few months to write this review just to see how well these mice held up. The other two mice are working perfectly and running with the same AA Duracell Alkaline batteries. Hope this review helps some of you.

    The pictures included are:
    1. A comparison of my desktop mouse vs the TechNet mouse being reviewed.
    2. Two TechNet mouse of different colors (left and right) vs my desktop mouse (center).
    3. My large hands vs TechNet mouse.

    Basic mouse works well. No issues

  3. Audiobook Fiend

    I have never hated a mouse more.

    If feels great in the hand, I’ll give it that, but it is slow and cumbersome. No matter how I alter the mouse settings, it doesn’t move as I expect on screen. It is slow and sluggish.

    It “sleeps” every 30 seconds, and doesn’t wake up when I move it – I have to click to wake it up, and this often results in it clicking on something that I didn’t want to be clicked. I have had windows close unexpectedly because of this.

    The worst part, however, is the supremely annoying and easy-to-press button on the side. I’m not sure what it is supposed to do, but I skip out of youtube videos often, whenever I graze it with my thumb (that’s all it takes). I have been thrown out of a scheduled parents evening meeting with a teacher becuse of this button – these are 4 minute meetings and I lost half that time logging back in. All because I moved the mouse and accidentally touched that button.

    I have contacted Tecknet to see if the button can be disabled, it can’t. I would return it but I threw away the box when it arrived. Terrible mouse. I’m going to buy a Logitech to replace it.

    For reference, I bought this mouse on November 28th, 2015 for $9.97. The current date that I’m writing this review is August 4th, 2017. The mouse is still intact and working as well as it had when I first bought it. You would expect a cheap mouse like this break after so much time, but it has maintained itself quite well. It helps a bit that this mouse is on the heftier side, the weight really helps. 2.65 ounces isn’t much, but i had been using a dinkier mouse than this one. I have average sized hands, maybe smaller so take that snip-it with a grain of salt.

    When I bought it, it took some time for me to get used to it. Like any item, I took some time to break into the setup of the mouse. The clicks were a little heavy, but that changed after some weeks of use. The wheel is nice and smooth. Over the course of my usage, it hasn’t broken, hasn’t caught itself on its own parts. The middle mouse button STILL works splendidly. The click function still works, it doesn’t take that much force to use. I do a fair amount of web browsing on top of gaming. This mouse works very well for both cases.

    The DPI switch was a nice addition to have in the beginning. Finding the right DPI to use in different scenarios and tasks, this mouse is a good start. Although throughout my own maturity I realized I didn’t actually need very high DPI for most of my tasks, but to each their own. The circuitry and programming inside the mouse saves battery life quite well. When the mouse is not in use for more than 10 minutes at a time, it goes to sleep and conserves power. This eliminates the need to keep turning off the power to the mouse every time you stop using the mouse. It makes it easier to transport too. You can’t awaken the mouse by moving it around, but instead by clicking the mouse buttons a couple times or rolling the mouse wheel. So a simple shuffle won’t unnecessarily waste power. But if you are still inclined to turn off the switch per habit, again to each their own.

    The DPI switch acts as both, obviously a switch, but also as an indicator. Whenever the battery life gets low or whenever you need to start finding a fresh battery, the DPI light will start periodically flashing red. The mouse will still work even if the light is flashing, but by the time the light stops flashing while in use, the battery is dead. It runs on a simple AA battery, which will last you quite a while. In my usage, each battery through this mouse lasts me anywhere from 2-3 months. I game in my spare time, mind you. The sleep module works really well. Probably part of the reason this lasted as long as it did.

    The thumb/side buttons are not only comfortable but easy to use. You can’t accidentally bump into the buttons to activate it, these buttons aren’t that touchy. The thumb imprint works really well. It gives a relaxing position to keep my thumb under extended use. Speaking of comfortably, if you’ve ever looked at your hand in rest position (palm facing up), this mouse will cradle that position very well. It’s not perfect, it is a medium sized mouse but it is contoured very well. The USB connector holds a very strong connection with the mouse. When you need to transport it, and not lose it by accident, it tucks nicely in the light-spring slot on the bottom of the mouse. It makes for very easy transportation.

    This is the only qualm and my only con about this mouse: the shape. I will not lie this mouse is shaped a little strange. By nature, human fingers vary in length, specifically speaking, the middle finger is longer than the index. The picture isn’t lying; the right-click button which I typically use with my middle finger is shorter than the left click button which i use with my index. I had to adopt a claw position on my mouse (curved fingers into a more clicking position) to use this mouse as my middle finger kept going over the button. I still think that button should be longer, but again, that’s my opinion.

    All in all, Good work, Tecknet.

    Edit: About a week after I wrote this review, then the mouse started giving me problems. Double clicking, Unregistered clicks, Under representing movements, etc. FML. On the plus side, this mouse did last 2 years.

    I first purchased an older model TECKNET wireless mouse for my office, which I still use now after many years. When my wife needed a wireless mouse for her personal laptop, I got her this version. When she needed a mouse for her work, I got her another one. They keep a great battery life and we’ve simply had zero issues with them. At such a low price it’s a great value!

  6. Mike

    TLDR; This mouse is fine for light browsing and maybe office work but I found it soon becomes annoying and painful to use.

    GOOD THINGS
    It is cheap
    The supplied ‘dongle’ works without any issue.
    The silhouette of the mouse is not too bad for small to medium size hands. For my hands (medium to large) it feels smaller than equivalent size mice.
    Scroll Wheel works well.

    BAD
    The mouse just feels cheap.
    It causes my hands to roll slightly outward (RSI surely to follow)
    Switched are clicky but incredibly easy to trigger by accident (light pressure).
    The sleep function is surprisingly awful.
    Mouse sleeps too soon and requires Left or Right Click to wake (wiggle shake does not wake it up). VERY ANNOYING.
    Forward and Back buttons are too light (trigger too easily). They are also placed to high above the thumb ‘rest’ requiring a rolling upward motion of your thumb (and tendon) to use. Made to cause RSI!
    Mouse sensitivity is absolutely awful and the ‘sensitivity’ switch does not help at all. So the mouse is either way to slow or skitting all over the place.
    I spent an hour or two trying to dial this mouse in via the OS settings – no happy medium found.
    Noticeable fatigue after using the mouse for more than a minute or two, difficult to hit targets smoothly.
    Being plastic, I can not feed it to my Cats.

    Summary,
    If you just want a cheap wireless mouse to augment a laptop or for occasional use then this might be OK but I really would recommend buying a better mouse for anything other than casual use.

    This mouse behaves as if it has an old fashioned ball that is dusty.

    I do a lot of coding (text editing) and this mouse does not have the resolution to get the cursor between characters without extra faffing around. This causes an almost subliminal stress to build and productivity falls of a cliff.

    I have just received a Logitech M620 which is not not really my type of mouse but the accuracy and sensitivity are so much better than the TechNet. Now I am regretting just not spending the money for a better Logitech in the first place as I knew I should of.

    Conclusion.
    Unfortunately cheap mice just do not cut the mustard and while a mouse two or three times the cost might seem a stretch it will save you hands, arms, shoulder and neck.

    A good mouse should just become part of you and not cause any sighs, ‘uggs’ or ‘FFF’s’. Unfortunately this TechNet mouse just gets in the way of a fluid workflow. Further, a good mouse should be truly plug and play in this modern era, my experience tells that if 5 minutes ‘dialing in’ via the OS settings does not work them this is a poor mouse.

  7. Shamian20

    I give this mouse a 4.7, only because the clicks are not quiet. If you are used to a silent mouse, this may not be the one for you.

    I like that I can change the mouse speed, move forward, and backwards from the mouse; I also like the smooth transition across my desk pad (doesn’t catch or have a brain fart)

    Overall, pretty happy with the mouse…especially since it puts itself to sleep if I forget to shut it off.

  8. MrE

    Pleasantly surprised at the build quality, all the buttons and scrolls wheel feel durable and have a satisfying click to them. The battery compartment location also creates a good weight balance when batteries are in place (Batteries aren’t included in the box) The battery compartment door fits securely and it houses the wireless dongle which is ideal for travel purposes.

    The mouse works on a plug and play basis, simply plug the dongle into a spare USB port, put 2x AA batteries inside the mouse and turn the power slider on located on the underside of the mouse. Within 5 seconds drivers will automatically be installed and the mouse will work. A few things i really like about the mouse are that it has a DPI button so you can increase/decrease the sensitivity on the fly and that it has two dedicated buttons on the side for gaming. Oh yes, you read that right…. this is a fully capable wireless gaming mouse, just without the bells and whistles such as RGB lighting etc.

    I also like the energy saving features, so after several seconds if inaction it instantly drops to a semi-low power state, don’t worry though as it instantly responds should you move or click the mouse (seriously you wouldn’t know) It has has a sleep mode where by the mouse goes into hibernation if inactive after several minutes, simply double clicking the mouse will instantly wake it up with zero lag. It’s worth noting that the mouse is shaped for a right handed person.Other things worth noting are that it has a grippy thumb rest, the top is glossy smooth and there is a low battery warning LED on the top which also doubles as the DPI indicator.

    VERDICT: For the money i love this mouse, it is well constructed and glad i went for a wireless one in the end (the lack of wires and claimed 12 months of battery life are a big winner for me). It does make me question how some companies can charge 10x as much for mice that don’t do much else. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    The predecessor worked great, using it 5hrs daily for 6 years working full-time as a computer programmer.
    I bought it in 2016 and just now replaced it in 2022 with the same model after the left mouse button finally stopped clicking.

  10. Amazon Customer

    I have now had this device for 20 months. I have large hands and this mouse feels better in my hand than many. Left & right buttons feel nicely positive, the scroll wheel is also good. I haven’t really found a use for the two side buttons but they are nicely out of the way and I have only clicked them inadvertently on a couple of occasions – if you like them, they are easy to access, if you don’t then don’t let their presence worry you.

    But – the battery life is certainly NOT 30 month. I am using Duracell plus batteries and I have had to change them several times. The tracking on the mouse has “gone off” several times so that the onscreen response becomes VERY slow compared to my hand movements. I have fixed this a couple of times by switching the moues off and giving it a rest and/or changing the batteries but it has happened again today and I am back to a wired mouse.

    Because I like so much about this mouse, particularly the “in hand” feel, I am ordering a second as a replacement, in the hope that the problems I have experienced with the first were a fault with the individual mouse that I have. Time will tell!

    Edit: July 2022 – The second mouse has lasted 3 1/2 months and is suffering from similar problems as the first. The pointer on screen has become non responsive and “freezes”, ie the onscreen pointer lags behind the movement of the mouse and occasionally stops moving altogether. This is just too irritating to use and I have ordered a non Tecknet replacement.

    Based on using 2 of these over 2 years, both of which have failed, it is clear to me that this design/model of mouse is flawed. I cannot recommend the device and will be very cautious of Tecknet gear in the future, which is a shame. I have reduced the number of stars awarded to 1 as a result

  11. N

    Very comfortable and works great. Only things is not that quiet. Other than that, great mouse for everyday basic use. Fits comfortable in plam of your hand too.

  12. Amazon Customer

    Great mouse. I love the look and feel. It moves great. The only annoyance is that it does go into sleep mode. I do not use this for gaming.

  13. RARE Writing Services

    Having found the similarly-priced offering from Logitech (M238) too small, I purchased this as the dimensions are bigger.

    I don’t have massive hands, but they are not Trump-style small hands either. I take a European large glove size and I’m 186cm tall, if that’s any guide. This mouse fits my hand very well and is comfortable for long periods of use. I spend 7-8 hours a day on this mouse and barely notice it, and that’s really important.
    Battery life is excellent and the sleep mode activates quickly and wakes up just as fast.
    Clicky, tactile buttons and a smooth and–importantly for working in a small office–quiet scroll wheel.
    A big bonus for me as well was that it takes AA batteries. I have a bunch of rechargeable Amazon 2000mAh batteries at home so the fact that this takes 2 of those and I can recharge them easily is great. I have no idea when 4000mAh-worth of juice will run out on this though! A comparable power-saving mouse I had didn’t use up the power in a single AAA battery over 2 years, so this should be good to go!
    The package was professional and robust, meaning it arrived in good condition and the unboxing experience was pleasant.
    I highly recommend this if you’re on a budget or not. A mouse only really serves one function and it seems pointless to me to spend more than you need to. If you’re just buying this to upgrade on the cheapo mouse your company gave you, or just to have at home for word processing, this is brilliant.
    It’s obviously not a gaming mouse, so if you need something like that, I’m not an expert but I would recommend looking elsewhere.
