Special Offers

For laptop travellers and business users, Genius offers the Traveler 915BT Laser, a compact multi-purpose mouse with a wirefree connection.

Its wireless connection to your PC is via Bluetooth, so no extra dongles or adaptors are required for most modern notebook's with built-in BT receivers.

The usual left and right click facilities are served by soft-click switches hidden below the thin metal top plate of the Genius Traveler 915BT Laser, deliberately flexy to enable regular button clicks. In between is a treaded rubber scrollwheel, with a tactile ratcheted action.

The Genius Traveler 915BT Laser mouse itself is an unusual shape, relatively rectangular and with an arched top and rounded corners. For those who prefer a large and weightier mouse that fills the hand, this may be a little too dinky, although it's obviously designed more for the traveller who wants something compact to stow away in a laptop case.

We used the Genius Traveler 915BT Laser for normal daily office work and nevertheless found it comfortable for all-day use. Its operational range was good too, still able to operate from 12m distance.

One extra string to the Genius Traveler 915BT Laser's bow for the business user is a built-in laser pointer. To operate, just click the Mode button on top, when an LED will briefly light in red; you can then use the scrollwheel's push-button action to activate a red laser from the mouse's front. Press Mode again, watch the LED turn blue, and the mouse returns to regular mousing duties.

While some wireless mice lack the pinpoint precision of their wired counterparts, we always found the Genius Traveler 915BT Laser remarkably accurate and responsive in use, sensitive to the slightest changes in tracking.

Additionally, there was less of the latency you sometimes find with wireless mice when they go to sleep between uses, resulting in a fraction of a second's wait every time you pick it up to use again.

You can also toggle between 800dpi and 1600dpi sensitivity by pressing left and right click buttons together for three seconds.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
