As far as testing goes on a mouse, there really isn’t a whole lot that can be done other than seeing if it does what it claims to do. The first thing I did was grab the mouse and drag it over every different kind of surface I could find. Everything from my granite counter tops, bare wood desks, mouse pads, and yes… even a sheet of glass were no match for the Traveler 9010LS. It worked just fine on any surface I could conjure up. So, those of you that have your portable device carrying bags packed with a mouse pad, you won’t need it anymore if you decide to purchase this mouse. For the professional on the go, it’s one less thing to worry about.
The dpi function works very well, and I like being able to switch from one setting to the next, on the fly, without having to open a software program to do it. Depending on the work you are doing, being able to control the sensitivity quickly is a real time saver, and will improve the quality of your work as well.
The USB Pico receiver was immediately recognized by Windows 7 and installed effortlessly. It takes literally seconds to have the Traveler 9010LS up and running from the time you open the box.
A quick search shows the Traveler 9010LS selling for under $35.00 USD at many eTailers. If you are looking for a mouse that takes portability to the next level, looks great, feels nice to the touch, and does what it claims to do, then the Genius Traveler 9010LS is a must have item!
