It's a mouse

Summary: The fact that I bought it twice does say it's a decent mouse.
Pros: It's a nicely sized mouse. I have what I consider to be large hands and I don't feel cramped when using this mouse for extended periods of time. The scroll-wheel is also very nice. It's very portable.
Cons: I'm currently on my second one of these. It's been about a year I'd say, so, I can't complain. I am a tad aggressive and I consider myself to be a bit more than casual gamer, playing some fairly click-intensive games at times as well. Frequent gamers will eventually run this into the ground and e...
Excerpt: I use this mouse with my desktop. Although my fingers are long & hands are large, I prefer a small mouse. I also prefer one that has that little button just below the wheel, so I can program it to double click. This seems to be one of the only Logitech models that fits the bill.
Excerpt: Purchased this mouse about a week ago as it was the only one with forward and backward buttons in the Staples store. I like the mouse but it is definitely a little on the heavy side, which you will notice after a while of moving it around on your desk.
Summary: Logitech support agreed to send a replacement this time, didn't hassle me about it, didn't make me send the bad one back first. (Call them on the phone -- the web support page didn't work.) I actually think I will keep buying them -- on balance, it's worth it even if it only lasts a year.
Pros: Pretty good mouse while it lasts. Love the ability to work on glass.
Cons: Gone through several of them -- the left-click button starts double-clicking when you single-click. The "fixes" you can see on YouTube don't work, or only work for a short while, then it's back to acting up.
Summary: I'm still undecided whether or not I'm going to replace it with another because of the Darkfield Technology it uses. I don't use it on a desk. I use it mostly on the arm of a chair, but I take it out on the road a lot and it basically gets used on all kinds of surfaces.
Pros: Darkfield Technology. This really is something nice. It works on pretty much any surface. Extra buttons that can be configured anyway you want with Setpoint.
Cons: Just like many other have said, the right and/or left click buttons will eventually go out. Right now mine is double clicking and it has only been about half a year. The mouse comes with a receiver capable of unifying up to 6 items which would be nice if it didn't randomly cycle power to the mous...
Summary: I'm buying another one after three years because I like the design and I really need the 5 buttons now. I hope they've improved the switches they use - seems like they should last longer than three years.
Pros: 5 buttons. Has held up well to daily road-warrior use, except...
Cons: Left button has failed, admittedly after three years, but still.
Summary: The mouse is a great size for the laptop, uses double AA batteries, so even if I cannot use my standard rechargeable, I can drop in some Alkaline in a pinch. The battery will last a month or more of heavy office use. The unified receiver works with another keyboard, which makes for a wire free desk.
