Buffalo - Silent! Blue LED Wireless Mouse

Buffalo is going to release the silent Blue LED wireless mouse BSMBW11 series in mid-May.

You can comfortably use it late at night, at the cafe or during meetings without bothering people around you.

With its Blue LED sensor, you can control the mouse on a clear glass table or clear sheet where it would not be possible to work with a mouse that features optical or laser sensor.
