This got to be the smallest box ever for a mouse, at least that I have reviewed. Personally I like it, less plastic garbage and easier to unpack!

The front shows the mouse and the back has the specifications printed on it if you like to read that kind of information.

The USB cable is not sleeved on this mouse like most mice on the market are today and this has its pros and cons. When it comes to a sleeved cable it it protected vs various problems like you running over the cable with your chair, cats biting on the cable, etc…  A non-sleeved cable is more movable and it’s easier to game with.

This means I won’t say it’s a pro or a con with a non-sleeved cable so I will leave it for you to figure out. Both the right and left side of the mouse have buttons to for extra functions that you can program in the software.
