Targus Wireless Rf Mouse For Mac
The Targus BlueTrace Wireless Mouse features the latest BlueTrace technology for accurate and precise tracking. BlueTrace technology combines the power of optical technology with the precision of laser technology for remarkable tracking on almost any surface including wood, granite, and carpet. The ergonomic design reduces wrist strain for comfort and the mouse is ambidextrous for both left and right-handed users. Wireless capability eliminates clutter from the workspace while RF 2.4GHz technology significantly reduces cordless interference and signal drops allowing the mouse to work up to 33 feet away. The mouse comes equipped with one high-quality Energizer battery. Featuring a sleek, comfortable design, the Targus Wireless BlueTrace mouse provides wireless convenience and the micro USB receiver stores underneath the mouse, so it's never lost and always ready for travel. The USB receiver is also small enough to stay plugged into your computer at all times.
Targus Wireless Rf Mouse For Mac
The Targus W575 Wireless Mouse is designed for a comfortable fit in your hand. Its 1,600 DPI optical sensor provides a precise response to mouse movements and its 2.4 GHz wireless technology reduces interference, delays, and signal drops for excellent tracking.
Touch Scroll replaces the traditional mouse-top scroll wheel(or trackball) with a solid state optical sensor that allows 4-wayscrolling using fingertip gestures in the desired direction over theoptical sensor. This sounds like an interesting idea, if a bitgimmicky. However, the more I use the Targus for Mac Wireless Mouse,the more addicted I've become to Touch Scroll.
However, get used to it I did, and after a week or so the shape ofthe Targus mice also begin to make sense and feel quite comfortable aswell. They have always been smooth customers on the mouse pad, glidingabout almost effortlessly, which is no mean engineering achievement fora wireless mouse packing two heavy AA cell batteries. The left/rightclick buttons also have a nice, light (but not hair-trigger) positiveaction.
They Logitech V-550 also supports horizontal scrolling with sidewaysnudges of the scroll wheel, but it's not nearly as slick as TouchScroll for that - and also requires installation of Logitech's ControlCenter driver software, while the Targus for Mac mice don't (you doneed proprietary Targus driver software in order to use the toprogrammable buttons configured in a rocker switch on the lower left ofthe mouse housing).
As I mentioned, there are twoTargus for Mac mice - the Targus wireless Mouse, which uses a 2.4 GHzRF interface requiring a USB receiver dongle at the computer end, andthe Bluetooth Laser Mouse, which connects via Bluetooth. Otherdistinctions are that the RF unit has a 1,200 dpi optical sensor, whilethe Bluetooth model gets a 1,200 dpi laser sensor. Other than that andthe Bluetooth model's two-tone livery with Lunar Gray over a darkergrey lower case, the mice are identical in form factor.
Personally I've never found a Bluetooth mouse that didn'tdrive me nuts with response latency, and the Targus for Mac unit is noexception to this. The laser sensor may be considered superior to theoptical unit in the RF version, but it's kind of hard to tell becauseof the Bluetooth response lag. While it is a pain to have to occupy aprecious USB port with a receiver, especially on a laptop (thelow-profile receiver unit can in most cases remain in situ for transitor storage and stores in a slot inside the battery bay when removed),RF Wireless Mouse is far and away superior in tracking responseprecision, and I have been able to detect no latency at all withit.
It's also right there almost immediately when you wakethe computer from sleeping (in fact, nudging it on the mouse pad willwake the machine), as opposed to the Bluetooth unit, which has todither and collect itself while reestablishing a connection. The RFmouse is also truly plug-and-play, while with Bluetooth you have tomuck about with device detection and pairing. And the RF wireless modelis $20 cheaper as well. Definitely my choice, but some folks likeBluetooth, so whatever your preference, Targus has you covered.
To fix a skipping mouse cursor, try using the mouse on a different surface. The ideal surface for a mouse is an even-toned mousepad, but most decent mice can track on most hard surfaces. The exception is with glass, as it is a terrible surface for a laser mouse to track on. Multi-color surfaces, like wood with a prominent dark grain, will sometimes confuse even modern laser mice.
For mice with power switches, try cycling the power. Turn the mouse off, wait ten seconds, and turn the mouse back on. That will refresh the wireless connection and give a wireless mouse the opportunity to establish a more stable communication channel.
Troubleshooting could involve something as easy as removing your mouse from the configuration utility, restarting the Mac, and then adding the mouse back again. Some mice also require driver updates to help ensure smooth connectivity with up-to-date macOS hardware, so having this software installed can be incredibly helpful.
