If space is at a premium and/or you happen to lust after gadgetry that brings together two otherwise wholly un-associated functions (we suspect you have a special handshake, but what would we know?) and you don?t already have a memory card reader then this USB Optical Mouse with Built-in SDHC/microSD Card Reader may appeal though, then again, perhaps it won?t.
In honesty, whilst we can see the practicability of bringing extra functionality to computer mice (they take up desktop space after all, so why not maximise your real estate courtesy of such dual functionality) the very idea of introducing a card reader (listed as being capable of reading SDHC, SD, MMC, MiniSD, T-flash, MicroSD and MicroSDHC memory cards ? though in order to read the latter four cards you?ll need an adapter ? which is just something more to loose) just washes over us. Yes, we can see that, say, for people who carry a notebook around for their work could find the device useful, we would much rather a mouse be just that ? a mouse, nothing more, nothing less (call us traditionalists if you will).
The USB Optical Mouse with Built-in SDHC/microSD Card Reader, which sports an 800pdi optical sensor, will set you back a mere $15 should you feel that you simply cannot live without it. We, however, can.
