Got one of these last time. Seems alright, paired with my phone alright.

Trying to figure out why I need a mouse with my phone that has a touch screen took a lot longer than pairing it.

FYI it doesn't come with a bluetooth adapter, but you probably already knew that.

I miss me some wootTV.

I also got one of these last time. I use it daily on my HP Touchpad running ICS 4.0 without any problems. I also pair with a bluetooth keyboard at the same time.

Several people did have complaints about losing the pairing, or the pairing taking an especially long time. Also, issues with XP that I'm not sure were ever resolved.

Really?

The picture here is of a mouse that was not reassembled correctly when the batteries were installed; the two buttons should be at the same height at rest, and the picture here clearly shows the right button higher than the left button.

Also, I bought two of these mice, and I found both to be unusable. Every so often, it would just die; nothing would register on the computer. Then, after about 10 seconds, it would just start working again.

If you take a look at the discussion of the previous offering, you will see that many people suffered from this problem. And, as of now, no solution was posted.

Got this last time because my HP laptop has bluetooth...waste of money.

I picked up a few of these last time around, just because had been the cheapest bluetooth mouse I'd seen yet.

It would cut out on me, UNTIL I went into the device manager, checked my bluetooth, and disabled the "allow shutoff to save power" or something like that. Has worked great ever since.

Edit: Used on an HP laptop.

Stay away from this junk.

Read the last two pages from the previous Woot on Moto mouse -
http://www.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=5142899

also the other flash-sale website had it yesterday for $4.99 shipped... not so good price here at Woot if you add $5 shipping.

I would like this but have decided to stop buying from WOOT! I had purchased a Motorola keyboard a few weeks back but it never shipped. When I asked WOOT! about it they told me "sorry, we oversold the item" then the same day I read the email it was offered in a WOOT-off. WOOT, How can you be out of stock on an item but be offering it for sale on your site? I asked customer service how they could tell me it was sold out but offer it on a WOOT-off, no reply to my question. I passed up buying another keyboard at a cheap price and ended up getting no keyboard at all. Customer service is not WOOTs strong point I guess.

Got one of these last time.

I'm surprised woot didn't fix the photos. FYI the buttons are flush with each other, the right mouse button is not raised (as it appears in the photo). The cover was not pressed down properly.

Build quality is great for the price.

Side note, to my dismay, I could not get it to pair with my HP Touchpad CM9, but was able to pair it to my OG Droid CM7. Strange.

My guess is that we did oversell and your order was canceled. Sorry for that.

We do an inventory update before a woot-off and may have a few in stock for that due to canceled orders or other reasons. However, we can't pull something out of a sale on a woot-off because the sales move quickly and we don't have time to adjust the inventory.

It's complicated and it does suck. We're continuing to improve and hope you'll give us another chance in the future.

If you're talking about the Motorola Keyboard with the built in touchpad, I think you lucked out by missing out on it. The keyboard was decent but the touchpad was pretty bad. Very slow and not very sensitive. Had to press down on it to get it to do anything, which doesn't work if it's not on a desk. I also had some trouble pairing it to new devices even if the previous one had been turned off (it should have become available again immediately but didn't).

I ended up selling it on eBay and losing around ~$10 on the whole ordeal. I think it was designed specifically to be used with Android devices, so maybe it works better with those. I was trying to use it with my PC.

I have the Xoom, and this, as well as the Motorola keyboard with trackpad. It does drop out, but it seems to be my tablet kicking it off, as it kicks off both the mouse and the keyboard at the same time. I will try the recommendation of changing Bluetooth powersave option, and I imagine that will do the trick.
It does work with the Xoom, however, there are some apps (including the Firefox browser that I have) that do not allow full functionality with the mouse/scroll wheel. It does work with the native web browser, and most apps.
If you've already bought something, and so have free shipping, I'd certainly give it a try.

I bought 2 of these last time (one for a friend), and it works great with my Touchpad and Razr Maxx. I highly recommend this if you have smart phone that can utilize Webtop via HDMI; combine this with a keyboard, and you have a ultra portable "desktop."

With Woot being part of Amazon, they now charge sales tax for orders from CA...
Dislike!
Anyway, I have heard that this mouse works fine with tablets. I intend to use is with my Nexus 7 (after paying $200 for the tablet, I need to save on accessories ;)

I had the same problems but after changing the batteries the problems stopped and it works excellently. I use it on an HP Touchpad with Android ICS.

Chi. Yes, I want you to do something for me. I want you to go in my room, look over my suits, in the ceiling, up on the ceiling you'll see a key stuck there. I want you to take it down and bring it to me. Meet me at the Total Experience in one halfa hour. Can you dig it?

“contraium”,

I was in for 3 last time. None of the 3 was in retail packaging. They were all new, albeit each in plastic bubble wrap.

My educated guess is that all units are part of bulk order cases, and are being individually sold.

Wow,no one has ever said that before!!! Oh wait, I bet if you looked at product posts prior to Amazon " Featuring a product with so many bad reviews and no customer support again" has been said lots of times. Lets just move on.

I have one, and it works equally well with my TouchPad running CM9 and my MacBook Pro (primary usage).

It's worth $10 for sure -- what I orignally paid for it as well -- and I picked up another one for $5.00 earlier this weekend from "that other site", also mentioned above.

Assuming its the same one from the previous sale, it says "SJYN0817A" on it.

I got this to use with my laptop (Asus Zenbook), and it worked perfectly first time. No problem with it losing the connection at all. It does go to sleep if you don't use it for one minute, but it wakes up if you jiggle it. The manual says it will disconnect after one hour of inactivity, but will reconnect if you press a button.
I'd buy more, but I bought an extra last time.

Got one of these on Woot last time it was offered. I have a Moto Droid Bionic with the Motorola Lapdock, but I hate the laptdock's trackpad. Paired right up, works beautifully. I find it very comfortable to use, definitely better than my "travel" USB mouse. Battery life seems good, but you have to remember to turn it off when not in use. It's easy to forget since there is no visual indication to remind you.

I bought one last time around to pair with my HP TouchSmart. Not only does it work great, there is no interference with the Bluetooth Apple keyboard that I use on the same computer.
As far as people whining about unresponsiveness - you just have to wiggle the mouse to "wake it up" which it does after being inactive for an extended period of time. It's a battery saving function. Once it's awake it's faster than my previous corded mouse!

Not a great mouse but good enough for the price. The cursor does not move as smooth as other mice I've owned. Yes people, this works on Mac OS/Windows/Linux (only tried on Ubuntu)/Android/iOS (Jailbreak and install BTstack) machines with Bluetooth. (NO, WIFI IS NOT BLUETOOTH FOR THOSE WHO SAY, "I HAVE WIRELESS AND IT DOESN'T WORK)

I bought two of these last time around: one for an older MacBook and one for a MacBrook Pro. They paired easily and work great. For the price, I highly recommend then as a quick mouse option. I haven't experienced any of the above shutoff problems on my Mac. You can't beat $5!

Got this for $9 shipped a month ago. I use it with my Nexus 7 when I feel like word processing on my tablet and want a little finer control.

So far it works, but on such a small screen I find it usually isn't worth the time to turn bluetooth, find the mouse, and turn the mouse on.

Still, I'm glad I have options.

Got one of these the last go-round on Woot. Received DOA. It would pair and then the mouse would shut off. Did a little searching to see how to get it serviced/replaced by Motorola but ultimately just chucked it in the trash.
