Bluetake BT510 Bluetooth mouse review
Posted on 8-May-2005 01:28 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Reviews


In the last few years I have had a few Bluetooth mouse to test here on Geekzone. I have to say my favourite one was, until now, the Anycom BT-100 (read review). But it looks like the Bluetake BT510 may change my preferred device.

The Bluetake BT510 mouse is a little smaller (94.1 x 57.6 x 33.2mm, 62g) than the average desktop mouse, its size being ideal for medium sized hands. It actually feels good when using it, and because it is not big and wireless it goes well with laptops.

The mouse in itself is not much different than other devices. Its optical technology provides 800 dpi input. It works with two standard AAA-sized batteries, but if you ever run out of juice, simply plug the USB power supply cable and it is ready to be used again.

It works with any Bluetooth HID compliant software stack - making it a good fit for Windows XP Service Pack 2, BlueSoleil and Widcomm software. It will also works without problems with Mac OS X Bluetooth.

Using it is simple and you just need to turn it on, press the Connect button next to the power switch and do a Search from your computer. The mouse will automatically attempt to reconnect to the last used computer when turned on. Couldn't be simpler.

It also offers a Reversible button function, which allows the mouse to be used in any side of the computer without having to install any software. Simply pressing the scrolling wheel and one of the buttons for 3 seconds will swap the button assignment - do it again to revert the process.


Good size and light


Spare USB cable to power when batteries go flat

Pros
  • Small size
  • Works with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X
  • Powered by USB when batteries go flat

    Cons
  • A nice feature would be the use if rechargeable batteries and recharge through USB
