Clarificatons

Connection Type:

▪ Wireless USB receiver requires a full-size USB port. Computers with only USB C ports require an adapter (not included). Bluetooth does not require a USB port.

Programmability:

▪ A downloadable driver may be installed to change button functions, including assigning any Windows or Mac shortcut, such as copy, paste, close, etc. Wheel acceleration is also available.

Hand Size:

▪ A hand 7.0″ / 178 mm or smaller from the tip of the middle finger to the nearest crease on the wirst may be more comfortable with the small models.

Pointer Speed Switch:

▪ An easily accessible switch on the side of the mouse for changing pointer speed or sensitivity.

Pointer Speed Lights:

▪ Lights on top of the mouse that indicate the selected pointer speed from among four levels. They stay illuminated on the wired models, and are momentary on the wireless models.

Optical Wheel:

▪ Scroll wheels with optical technolgy that do not wear out, unlike the mechanical encoders common on other mice which tend to wear out.

Glide Pads:

▪ Extra large Teflon glide pads on the bottom last for the life of the mouse. Small glide pads on other mice may wear out much faster.

Cable Length:

▪ Evoluent wired mice have much longer cables than the industry standard 1.6 m / 5.25 ft for reaching under desks.

Quality Cable:

▪ Highly flexible but durable cable.

Battery Life:

▪ Based on alkaline battery with typical office use. The battery may last longer with less use or shorter with more intensive use.

Compatibility:

▪ Bluetooth and Mac models are compatible only with Mac computers. They are not compatible with the Bluetooth in Windows computers.
▪ Wired and wireless USB models are compatible with Mac computers as well as Windows, Linux and Unix computers.
▪ The buttons have fixed functions when the Evoluent driver is not installed.
