Macally mGlide review

This low profile wireless mouse is perfect for travellers

Our Verdict

A lovely travel mouse that feels at home on the desktop as well as on the move


  • Nice low-profile design
  • Good receiver design


  • Might not suit all tastes

Macally's latest rodent, the mGlide, is beautifully styled in brilliant white. It's ultra-slim so ideal for travellers, and its miniature wireless dongle fits inside the mouse when not in use, so you're less likely to lose it in your bag.

Inserting the dongle into this housing also switches off the mouse to save battery life. As well as being responsive, the mGlide is comfortable.

It might take a little getting used to due to its low-profile form factor, but after an hour or two you wouldn't want it any other way.

Marketing Information

The mGlide is a stylish white and compact 2.4Ghz wireless RF mouse that frees you from annoying cables on your desk. The mGlide is immediately recognized by your computer, but can be fully programmed on your Mac as well. The receiver is ultra small and can be kept safely in the mouse when not in use. In fact, when you put the receiver in the mouse, it activates a switch which turns off the mouse to save valuable battery life. The ergonomic ambidextrous design makes the mGlide easy to use for both right and left handed users.
