HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse

Peripherals
Hey. I'm Justin Hugh the Associate Editor for cnet.com. This is your first look at the HP X7000 WiFi touch mouse. So it withdraws inspiration from other touch sensitive mice like Apple's Magic Mouse and the Logitech N600. This is the HP version and it adds an extra feature to the mix with the ability that connect through the wireless adapter in your Windows 7 power computer. And that's instead of Bluetooth which is what the majority of other wireless mice are that has benefit by freeing up precious USB ports for your other peripherals in your computer. But unfortunately, a series of hardware hiccups left a pretty bad taste in my mouth. So let's take a tour of the device before I tell you about that first. You'll notice immediately that the mouse is contoured for right handed users. So let (these?) keep shopping. The whole piece has a really (organamic?) shape. You get the two standard buttons on top here for left and right clicks, two buttons on the side for moving backward and forward through a web browser and a single touch sensitive button in the middle strip here. Instead of a school value you usually see in the center of modern mice, this one is touch sensitive so the pointer will actually respond to your finger flicking across it. In my experience however, the mouse is a little overly sensitive and that made it a little prone to accidental clicks. When my fingers lingered even for an extra second too long on the pad. That and the real estate for swiping is too small with only a slightly raised position in the center that makes it hard to distinguish unless you're looking down directly at it and who wants to do that every time you have school? But let's get back to the connectivity really quick. The first thing you should know is that it will only pair with compatible Windows 7 wireless adapters. So double check with the link I put in the written review to make sure your computer works before you buy it. Once you confirm that, however pairing with them out and your wireless receiver is really easy. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes with a single button push to establish connection. I did notice however that the mouse takes a little time to reconnect if its companion computer goes into sleep mode. My last gripe with the X7000 is a lack of reprogrammable buttons. There's five of them and you can change the number of scores per notch on the touch panel as well as the specific functions of those buttons but you can actually remap any of them to launch an application of your choice or perform key stroke combination. Overall, my favorite mouse is still the Logitech performance mouse and I'm actually gonna find a link to that in the written review. It's about 20 bucks more than this X7000 but it's a lot more comfortable to use and definitely worth the use in your USB port. You can read all the details in my full review on cnet.com. I'm Justin Hugh. You could take a first look at the HP X7000 WiFi touch mouse. Thanks for watching
