Philips Mouse with Bluetooth wireless technology SPM9800 is rated

Excellent mouse - however some downsides
This mouse is just not that mini size compared to other bluetooth mouses. Ergonomy is however degraded by the low height as well as by the click areas, which cover also the sides of the mouse, which can be touched too easily by the fingers you're having sticked with each side of the mouse. The low height especially affects comfortable side contact.
Precise mouse movements without annoying standby wakeups. These wakeups do occur, but only after approx. 3 minutes. Then wake-up requires approx. 1 second - you should be aware of that.
The "scroll" pad is better than expected and it is a pleasure to scroll pages without noise and also have a wider speed range (iPad feeling)! It makes also a reasonable job when using the scroll "wheel" as zoom-in/zoom-out in CAD systems.
The specific operating mode (scrollpad as mouse function) is OK, but it'll be used hardly.
Mechanically, this mouse makes a qualitative impression.
All-in-all: this mouse would be a perfect choice if ergonomy would be better.
