The new HP 280 mouse comes with a battery life of up to 18 months, 90% less noise on the left and right buttons, as well as a reliable connection via the included 2.4 GHz wireless dongle. Only available in black, this accessory is designed to work with both Windows 7 or later and Mac OS 10.1 or higher.

When talking about business mice, there are two essential features that many companies are looking for: reliability and silent operation. While we cannot tell yet how reliable is the new HP 280 (unfortunately, the official press release does not offer any details regarding the switches used and their expected lifespan), it looks like HP has nailed the last part mentioned above.

Without revealing any details regarding the operating noise of the scroll wheel (which is usually quite silent in most mice), HP reveals that the 280 silent wireless mouse "has up to 90% noise reduction on the left and right buttons" and its ergonomic design provides excellent comfort for long sessions of use. The sensitivity is another detail that has been skipped apparently, but we expect up to 1600 dpi, which should be more than enough for most office users. The battery life is excellent, with up to 18 months of regular use. The 2.4 GHz wireless dongle can be stored inside the mouse to make travel as convenient as possible.

The HP 280 silent wireless mouse needs a free USB-A port and is fully compatible with both Windows (7 and up) and Mac OS (10.1 and later). Pricing and availability information is not available yet, but we will probably update this article in the coming days as soon as HP reveals more. Stay tuned and feel free to tell us a few words about the mouse that you would use in office tasks this year. As usual, the comments section is all yours.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
