Reviews and Problems with Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX
Showing 1-10 of 67
Failed after about a year with double click issue
25 June 2014
Summary: The mouse worked fine on any surface but started making double clicks for a single click after about a year with average home usage. Contacted Logitech and they sent a replacement for the mouse. My dad had another Logitech mouse model M505 and it had the same issue after about two years and he throw it away. Logitech mice seem to have quality and reliability issues in recent years.
Summary: But most of the time, it just freezes up and I find my self clicking, shaking and tapping the darned thing - and usually it'll start back up again. VERY annoying! I have reinstalled the software several times and gone through the pairing setup. It works beautifully, then repeats it's old bad habits. I'm using it with the K800 illuminated keyboard (another Anywhere product); my PC is using Windows 7 Pro. I would love some advice on what I might be doing wrong.
Summary: I have tried to love the Anywhere MX mouse. It definitely has a nice weight and comfortable feel, and it's handy to be able to click down on the scroll wheel to toggle between smooth and incremental scrolling. It tracks very well on any kind of surface, and the Set Point configuration software is powerful and easy to use. HOWEVER....I have had to buy about 4 of these over the past three years, due to one or more reliability problems.
Summary: I returned Anywhere Mouse MX to the store and perhaps I will buy M705 (it's little obsolete and not the best, but I don't know anything better). The main cause why I don't like Anywhere Mouse MX: middle button doesn't work on scroll. Hyper-Fast scrolling switcher used instead of middle button and it's not configurable because of hardware designed. Sure, I can configure middle button to "Application switcher button", but it's not common behavior never!
Summary: I really liked at first. But the scrolling wheel is terrible. It does not work well with outlook or firefox. I like the fact it tracks on any surface, but all that is lost in the scrolling wheel. It really kills it for me. Escpecially that is cost more. disappointed.
Summary: Started using it and was very happy with it. Despite the fact that I had been using it on a good surface, some time after it started exhibiting erratic cursor movement. Took the mouse back to the retailer and got a replacement. Same thing here! Couldn't use it any longer and had to go back to my M705. Cost me too much money, to recommend it to a friend!
Summary: If your buying this mouse to use for web surfing... you'll probably love it. It's well built and comfortable. If your buying this to use with Adobe design software. You'll probably throw it through the window. Or return it... which is what I did. Side scrolling and regular scrolling is frustrating to say the least... Arghhh!
Summary: As some reviewers have already mentioned, the pictures for the product show a matte finish. However, the product as shipped has glossy plastic on the areas where your fingers touch the mouse. If a glossy finish doesn't bother you, then no problem. But for the rest of us, resting our fingers on a glossy finish is disturbing. it makes your fingers feel greasy and is very objectionable.
Summary: Admittedly this is my first wireless mouse for my home PC (though I've used them at work before). Used to always buy Logitech mice, but thinking I'll need to dump this & get a mouse from another company. Oh well.
Pros: - Very comfortable! (at least for us folks with smaller hands)
Cons: The mouse wheel is horrible! It's way too sensitive. Having TONS of issues just using Google Chrome.
Summary: I bought the current version of this mouse as a replacement for the original version that I've been using for the last two years and a half. Nowhere does it say that the current version has glossy plastic surface instead of matte black one. All the pictures in all the online stores that I've seen are of the original matte version and I expected that's what I'll get.
