  • Good stuff, as expected.

  • This is another great Anker product! Let me keep it short and straight-to-the-point!
  • This is another great Anker product! There is a Teknet model M002 that is almost identically modeled after this one. This is the Anker model DS-2240. The hardware is the same for the most part, however this one is full size compared to the Teknet one. There is a vertical, hollow hole for the wireless usb dongle to be stored into on the bottom of the mouse, on the right side of the battery cover, if you are holding the mouse on its back, instead of in the battery compartment like the Teknet one. There is no on and off power switch like the other one either, however, it doesn't really need it; because it goes into "off" mode after some short time on it's own. You can press any button, including pressing in the scroll-wheel to wake it up. It has a solid and durable design, that you should not expect to fall apart in a short period, although some people can mange to break anything beyond hopes and dreams. It has an an awesome rubber grip for the right thumb. The top black housing on the outside and between the blue (the trimming) feels like polymer. Many people tend ramble on with off topic information, troll, and never get straight-to-the-point and tech specs in these reviews. Pay no attention to senseless, and tech-less troller reviews that possibly make you miss out on good products like this one, and a good user experience. 5 Stars!!!

  • Works well, no major issues
  • Mouse fits my hand perfectly and is a great full sized, wireless, USB mouse. I haven't had any issues thus far my only concern would be the battery life. The first battery I put in is still running fine after a couple weeks but when I store the mouse in my backpack I see a red light indicator light up occasionally so i'm not sure how much, if any at all battery life that is eating up.

  • I bought this to replace the old Microsoft wireless unit I had. I like the micro receiver compared to the old MS "puck" receiver.My only issue is, I bought this along with an ultra slim keyboard and I can't get them to work off the same receiver. My computer has plenty of USB ports so it's not a big issue and I haven't spent much time trying to resolve it.Overall I am happy with my purchase

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.

Shared USB dongle?

Can the mouse and Anker 2.4GHz keyboard purchased separately share the same USB dongle?

Love it

Have owned it since a while. Love it! The button to change the sensitivity is especially helpful since my friends hate that I use speedy sensitivity since they prefer slow. So with just a click I can change the sensitivity and avoid the trip to the control panel. Nice and sturdy mouse, almost a year old now and still works like a new one

I have misplaced my dongle for my mouse. I seriously love this thing and I was wondering if there is a way I could get a replacement? 

By the way I own a battery and four port charger that also rock, you guys do great work!  Seriously impressed. 

Thanks in advance.

DPI controls

To begin with, the DPI button worked well, and what a feature it was! now, (6 days post purchase) it changes as and when it wants, and the DPI button flashes constantly for 10 or so seconds before going out. Help? :D may be just me, or a 'feature' im overlooking...

Manual shut off

Hello! I am aware of the idle feature which would shut off your mouse after not being used for a certain period of time, but i was wondering whether it was possible to shut off the mouse when it is not being used? 

Thank you,

Not without pulling the battery out.

Reply Report as spam Jan 9, 2015 at 12:34 PM
There isn't a manual way to shut off this mouse.

It'll only take 8 minutes to go into idle mode though which means the battery will last an awfully long time!

Replacement USB receiver
Hi, I have been using this mouse for about 6 months and love it, unfortunately during a house move I have lost the usb reciever and the product seems to be sold out. Is it possible to buy just the receiver or is there a compatable one which will allow me to use this mouse again? thanks in advance!

Gaming mouse software hangs
Hello, I just received my anker 2000 dpi optical gaming mouse on tuesday, I was really excited and out of the box plugged it right in and it started working right away. I immediatly went to the anker website and downloaded and installed the driver. I wanted my mouse to be blue but I nocied that the DPI at blue was a little low for me - I went to change the DPI, hit apply and it just started hanging for a long time.. then after a while i was able to change the software again, Tried setting all of the 4 settings to 2000 dpi, however they still seem to maintain their original speeds.In device manager it still says HID-compliant mouse. I have tried uninstalling the mouse and software a few times still no luck. My system profile is:Windows 7 Home 64bitAMD 3.3 GHz8k ramDx11I have tried running the installer as an administrator and just normally, i have tried restarts ect.. I am not sure what to do. It does seem like the mouse driver just dosnt see the mouse. Please help.-Mike

What about lefties?

I'm right handed, but I use my mouse with my left hand.  (Try it, it makes life a lot easier.  Especially if you use the number pad a lot.)  Why isn't an ambidextrous version of this mouse available?!?

Well the mice you listed are fast and responsive

So unfortunately, those are the only Anker offerings that fit your needs now.


Try the smaller one. I have that one and it works well

Reply Report as spam Mar 28, 2014 at 10:25 AM

I don't think those were designed to be ambidextrous or left handed intentionally.


Reply Report as spam Mar 28, 2014 at 12:18 AM

I often use the mouse with my left hand and find it very comfortable.  I actually find using my left 4th finger as the backup button easier than using my right thumb.

The ultimate dilemma: developing ambidextrous yet ergonomic mice!I'm sorry to say that we don't have any plans to offer our right handed mice in left handed flavor right now. Apologies to all the lefties out there.

Quote From ANKER Team:

I'm not looking for a 'left handed' version.  I'm looking for a 'neutral' version that isn't designed to favor either hand.  Like the three Anker mice that I included links to in earlier replies to my original post.   

Reply Report as spam Mar 28, 2014 at 7:29 AM

Basically, I'm looking for a high quality, fast and responsive mouse in a body similar to the Anker mice that I included links to earlier in this post.

Reply Report as spam Mar 28, 2014 at 7:33 AM

I should be clear that I am definitely not amibidexterious, but the design of this mouse does not prevent it from being used by my left hand.

Reply Report as spam Mar 29, 2014 at 1:23 AM

Any mouse can be used by either hand, but most mice are now curved to favor the right hand.  Neutrality is a good thing.


Reply Report as spam Mar 31, 2014 at 10:37 AM

Also I agree that this isn't as right handed dominant as some mice I've seen. It's definitely usable with your left hand

Anker states that you can program the buttons by using software that is downloaded from their website. Is that not the case? Or do you want the buttons to do something other than the standard functions?

I agree with TechToyWizard on this, try using the software Anker provides to change the buttons
