Penclic B2 utilizes Bluetooth technology. Having Bluetooth technology available in a mouse allows for a fast, safe connection to your device, as well as not requiring a USB port. Penclic Mouse B2 changes a little bit from our other mouses by being available in white, instead of the black associated with Penclic R2 and D2. But don't worry. Penclic B2 still maintains its smooth and stylish looks!

Possibly the best ergonomic mouse. I have only tried the Swiftpoint GT and the Penclic B2, and out of the two the Penclic comes out on top (mainly because the Swiftpoint decided to break after a hour and is 1.8 times the price). I found the Penclic to be so intuitive that I had no problem using it out of the box.
One reason I like this mouse over the latter is because it gives a real precision feel -- It feels like I am drawing on the screen. Its the closest I've felt to a pen on paper experience without going into the realm of graphic tablets. That being said, the Penclic is good for CAD programs but getting artistic with it is not going to yield good results.
My only mechanical gripes with the mouse are:
1. The scroll wheel does not free spin, and has a low res. Its spinning resistance and resolution mean you have to scroll quite a bit for some apps/pages. Even with the sensitivity set high in the OS. Placement has been ok for me, and I reach it with...
I wanted to try something besides a normal mouse since my fingers were starting to get sore at the joint ends from constant mouse use. I love working with my Wacom pen at home, so I thought the Penclic would be fun to use at work while I code.
The Penclic looks pretty nice to begin with, really like the concept. It came in a rather interesting tube with a charger, spare battery, and instructions. I realize it doesn't say it supports Win8, so I'm not dinging it for being hard to connect to on that OS, but it is something they should consider adding support for.
There were only a handful of review, but all were positive when I ordered, so I thought it would be a great find. Unfortunately, my expectations were to high or the unit I got was a dud. I tried this on multiple computers/operating systems (Win8, Win7, and Vista) and all displayed the same inconsistent behavior. Sometimes a button would click and other times, nothing for several clicks. One of the buttons...
The Penclic is nice to use as a change from the traditional mouse but not on an everyday basis. I found it difficult to maneuver and i ordered it because I thought it would work differently. You have to move the whole unit to move the screen cursor; I thought you just had to manipulate the cursor simply by moving the 'pen' part.
