Razer released a new addition in September to its Pro Solutions product line, the wireless Pro Click Mobile Mouse. Razer’s goal for this new mouse is “to provide precision and mobility in constrained spaces” making it the “ideal notebook mouse for professionals on the go.”    

At first glance the Pro Click Mobile seems rather average and with it’s only outstanding feature being uninterrupted connectivity with Bluetooth 2.0,  I wondered if this mouse could really be worth the $59.99 price tag.

Pro Click Mobile Features

  • Bluetooth 2.0 with adaptive frequency hopping
  • 1200 dpi optical sensor
  • No drivers required
  • Symmetrical design, non-slip finishing
  • Travel pouch for safe keeping

Look and Feel

The Pro Click Mobile I received was in the "Nice White" color option and had an ambidextrous design (the mouse also comes in Naughty Black, Sugar Pink and Spice Red). The only other color on the mouse was the grey scroll ball and the black on/off switch on the bottom.  The top of the Pro Click was covered in a non-slip finishing for gripping.  I’m not sure how functional the non-slip finishing is but it felt great.

The main feature of the Pro Click Mobile is that it runs with Bluetooth 2.0.   In other words, it has no USB stick or drivers.    All you need for the mouse to work are batteries and a Bluetooth enabled computer. 

There are two buttons on the bottom, one being the above mentioned on/off switch and the other a reset/pairing button to synch the mouse with the Bluetooth signal on your computer.

Performance

Like many other wireless mice, the Pro Click Mobile is easy to use.  A computer’s Bluetooth software can vary, but the main idea is to bring up the Bluetooth software menu, search for new Bluetooth devices and then hit the pairing button on the bottom of the Pro Click.   After this initial setup, the mouse functions great: it responds quickly, glides smoothly, and I never had a problem with the signal.  I even forgot to turn the mouse off once, stuck it in the travel pouch and into my laptop bag and looked up at my computer screen to find the mouse was still functioning from inside the bag. 

The size of the Pro Click Mobile is smaller than many models but it conforms to the hand which I liked.  I’ve found that I’m definitely a fan of smaller mice, but I prefer the mouse to fit my hand. 

The Pro Click Mobile works with Windows XP and Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later.

BatteryLife

I couldn’t test the battery life fully, but Razer includes “long battery life” as one of the Pro Click Mobile’s top features.  It takes two AA batteries and it has the on/off switch to help extend battery life.

Conclusion

The Pro Click Mobile may seem like just an average mouse when judged solely on looks but the Bluetooth technology definitely gives the Pro Click an edge over its competition.   I loved that installtion was easy with no drivers, my USB ports were free for other devices and I never had to re-establish connection, the Pro Click was always ready to go.

In that respect, the Pro Click Mobile puts other Bluetooth mice to shame.

The Pro Click Mobile is some what pricey at $60 with none of the media functions of similar priced USB mice, but if you have some extra pocket change the Pro Click Mobile with Bluetooth would be a great addition to any frequent traveler’s laptop.

Pros

  • Ambidextrous design
  • Great fluidity
  • Bluetooth 2.0, no drivers needed
  • Comes in four colors

Cons

  • May be uncomfortable for users with larger hands
  • Sort of expensive

Available for Purchase

The Pro Click Mobile Mouse is available on Razer’s website for $59.99.
