Gigabyte Aivia M8600 Mouse Review

Most mice come in a fairly standard oblong box with a Velcro front to allow viewing of your potential purchase. Not so with the Aivia M8600 as it comes in a tube with many compartments. If you're the kind of person who just adores opening new things and discovering what lays within, this is the mouse for you.
At one end we have a carrying case that must double as a TARDIS. Things just kept on coming out of it and, as is always the way with these matters, it was impossible to get it all back in. Thankfully it's big enough for the things you need to take with you.
So what does come in this marvel of compactness? We have two heavily braided USB to Mini-USB cables, some spare feet, a spare battery and the receiver/charger.
Having a spare battery is unheard of and if first impressions do count then we like the M8600 already. Just like the inclusion of the dust cover on the K8100 keyboard, it's the attention to detail that grabs you. Even the driver CD, a mini number which deserves credit for both being environmentally friendly, and also giving us a use for that bit on the middle of every CD drive that we otherwise never use.
