Customer Reviews

*Riv*el
  • Good Everyday Mouse for the Price
  • Purchased in September 2014, it is lighter in weight compared to my soon to be replaced microsoft mouse so I considered it as fragile. Up to now it has been working great especially for gaming. Two days ago it fell but had no physical damage and still works. I am skeptical about losing the USB during traveling but it stays snug in back of mouse. Sometimes if my finger passes on the USB while it is connected in the laptop, the connection will drop then come back on in a few seconds (not sure if it's my port's fault or the USB itself; not much of a problem for me). The sleep mode comes in handy and usually one or two clicks will wake the mouse up. I like the shape for my right hand however I do not believe it is suitable for a left hander. Will buy another if needed.

  • Great feel but unresponsive at times
  • I love the way this mouse feels and fits my hand. It is the perfect size and weight for me. Installation could not be any easier, and can be used pretty far away from the usb receiver.I am giving the mouse 3 stars because I find it to be unreliable. The mouse cuts out and is unresponsive at times.At first I thought it was using batteries really fast and I kept replacing the batteries once every few weeks, After several months of use the frequency in which the mouse becomes unresponsive has increased. I have tried hard to find a pattern but it seems very random. Some days it works all day long and then the next it freezes every few minutes. Sometimes I can tap the mouse on my desk and it will respond and other times not. Sometimes new batteries fix the problem but other times the mouse still freezes.If it was as simple as changing the batteries I would give this mouse a 5 star review.I love the feel of this mouse so much I am still using it despite of the problems. I have a second wired mouse attached and tucked behind my monitors incase I need to switch. The switching has become more frequent and I am not confident the Anker mouse will last very much longer.

  • Great product. Will buy again.
  • After two years of use, i have had absolutely no issues with this product. Battery life does last longer then previous wireless mouse I have owned. When not in use, the mouse goes to sleep.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  What is DPI?
Dots per inch (DPI) is a measurement of the mouse's sensitivity. A high DPI setting will translate small movements of the mouse on your mouspad to very large movements of the cursor on the screen and can help improve mouse accuracy.
Q2.  What is polling rate?
Polling rate (or report rate) determines how often your mouse sends information to your computer. The number in Hz directly translates to the number of times each second the mouse send data to the computer.
Q3.  What factors are most important to take into consideration when buying a new gaming mouse?
There are two major factors to consider when choosing a gaming mouse: the way the mouse feels in your hand and its performance. As long as you feel comfortable when clicking, moving, and gripping the mouse, then it will be an appropriate choice. As for performance, you should take several key parameters into account, such as the number of function keys, DPI, polling rate, and customizability. Generally speaking, the higher the value of DPI and polling rate the faster the operating speed and accuracy of the mouse will be.
Q4.  Can I use the gaming mouse to replace my regular mouse?
Yes, absolutely. The gaming mouse is completely optimised, this means it can facilitate web browsing and use with any other software. By creating different profiles for different applications, you can use the gaming mouse to completely revolutionise the way you use your computer.
Q5.  Why is the LED blinking red sometimes?
This shows the mouse batteries are almost empty. You should replace them with a new set.
Q6.  How come the operating range is so poor sometimes?
This is an indication of low batteries. Please replace the batteries to fix the issue.
Q7.  Do I need extra drivers for my mouse to work?
No. However, you can find a downloadable utility on our website to configure the mouse buttons.
Q8.  Will this mouse work on a Mac?
Yes it will work. The 2 side buttons however will not work.
Q9.  How come the mouse does not work i.e.the cursor doesn't move even after the USB dongle drivers have installed?
This will probably be due to the mouse and dongle not pairing automatically. Please unplug then replug the nano receiver whilst holding down the right mouse button and scroll wheel for three seconds, then release.

Won't turn on
I've had this mouse for a few months now and suddenly this morning it has stopped turning on. I've tested the battery, (and installed a brand new battery,) yet the mouse won't work. My computer recognizes the USB adapter find however the mouse won't turn on! No light ever turns on when I click the buttons or anything it just has stopped working. Is there something I can do to fix this? If not, how can I get a new mouse, (I believe I am still on the warranty.) Thanks!

Mouse Interferes with WIFI

Mouse works great but cannot connect to wifi when USB connector is plugged in. When I unplug the connector my computer connects to the wifi right away. Have Logitech keyboard and wifi always works when the USB connector for them is plugged in. Any help would be much appreciated because would really like to keep using this mouse if I could get it to stop interfering with my wifi.

That's strange. Try a different USB port. 

IF that doesn't work. Change the channel your router transmits on.

I have the same issue.My router is on 2.4ghz so I guess the mouse is on the same.Solution:Login to admin panel of your router and change the channel to the furthest from 2.4. In my case, I choose channel 10.

I have a similar issue.  The mouse works fine when I am close to the router, but interferes with the wifi signal when I try to use it in my basement.  I am only about 12 feet from the router, but one floor below.  The Wifi signal works properly when I remove the connector and use the laptop touch pad. I have changed the router channel from 1 to 5 to 10.  This did not fix the issue.  I have tried the mouse on both my Dell and Lenovo laptops, with similar results. I plugged the connector into different USB ports, with no success.I contacted customer service and they sent a new mouse.  The new mouse has the same issue.

Doesn't work like specified
I bought this mouse from Amazon and immediately noticed some issues with it. For example, it is supposed to work at 10 meters away (like it is wrote in the specifications) but if I go 20 inches away from my laptop it will stop working. The pointer gets stuck or goes in a totally different direction really often (I have tried it on many different surfaces). It is really annoying to use it. As much as I tried to get used to it I simply couldn't. I don't know if I received a bad one or it is just the way it is, Anker haven't responded to me yet... Bottom line is that I regret buying it. It still looks good and feels great in hand but if it doesn't work like it should, it is useless.

How did you try to contact Anker? Hint, this member forum is not it. As gherardini suggests, they can be reached at support@ianker.com or at: United States1-800-988-7973 Mon - Fri 9:00AM - 5:00PM PST Japan 03-4455-7823 Mon - Fri 9:00-17:00 Germany 069-9579-7960 Mon - Fri 6:00-11:00 China 400-0550-036 Mon - Fri 9:00-17:30 They have real live people who answer the phone, usually immediately during those hours, and they are super nice and knowledgeable. I've never seen an instance where someone said they don't respond. Can I ask a question? Why would you need to have a mouse work 10 meters (32 feet) from your computer? For the vast majority of people that would be in another room or 2-3 rooms away. Are you just testing the spec that was listed? Perhaps that's a typo, but why not ask them when you talk to them?

Thank you for your suggestions. As I said, I have already contacted them (on e-mail at support@ianker.com) and they have not responded. I think I sent the e-mail on Thursday evening. Anyway, maybe they were busy on Friday. I'm still waiting. I don't need to use the mouse 10 meters away from my laptop, I just said what was stated in the specs. The thing is that I intended to use it after connecting my laptop to the TV. But as I said, it doesn't work more than ~20 inches away so I can't do it. And 20 inches is not that much...

Florin - agreed that 20 inches is not enough, I have a mouse connected to my media center and I would reasonably expect 10 feet maybe a little more. None of use here are Anker (except when they jump in from time to time) so we can't speak for them but there are a lot of people who post at this forum who praise Anker's service. Hope you end up getting your answer, please share it if you would. Good luck.

I love this mouse so much!!!!! I just need to know how to program buttons! I'm pretty sure you have to download the driver, but it refuses to work for me. It will not launch and the troubleshooter doesn't help in the least bit. I don't know what it is doing. PLEASE help.

Sorry you can't program buttons for this mouse, you'll have to get one of Anker's higher end gaming mice if you want dedicated macros and programmable buttons. However those mice aren't very expensive and is a great value and works great. I personally use the 5000 DPI gaming mouse and it has so many programmable buttons and feels great in my hand

The buttons are pre-programmed, for use in games, you change that In Game, not in windows. Go to mouse settings and you'll see, but again, pre-programmed, but games you can change it via the control settings

The last time I checked the non-gaming mouse from that illogical tech company that looks a lot like the Anker mouse was selling for $100. That's insane. Anker's price is under $15US and you get so much more.

Oh thanx. I was wondering because I like to play Minecraft and I wanted to change the side buttons to shift and control like my cousins have to theirs. There is not really any control settings for that in Minecraft. I asked my cousins about it and they said you had to go to the website and download something from there. That explains it.

After downloading the driver from the anker site (http://www.ianker.com/support-c23-g192.html), please open it from the start menu with name "5-button mouse", and you can find it on the task bar, left click to open the driver page, then you may program the button. Would you give it another try?

Mouse Doesnt Work
I received this mouse today, have tried 3 different batteries and still doesnt work. The Red LED blinks, but there is no response from the computer. The computer also detects the dongle. Not impressed at all with the product. I guess you get what you pay for... Should have paid an extra $10-$20 and got a real mouse

ArghTooMuch

I'm having the same problem, but it's not a defective unit. My mouse (it's part of a keyboard/mouse combo) works on my laptop (where I DON'T need it). Anker said it was defective, and sent me another one. Fine. But that one doesn't work. Now they say it's a problem with the computer manufacturing, which doesn't make sense to me.

Surely it's a driver problem?

Mouse does not connect
I got this mouse just yesterday, and whenever i connect the usb receiver to my computer, the mouse will only work for a few minutes before losing connections. And after a while, it does not help to even plug out and in the receiver, the mouse remains unconnected throughout. Really disappointed with the product
