Reviews and Problems with Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX
Showing 1-10 of 102
Love everything but the left click
31 March 2014
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. Love that. However, there seems to be a major design flaw with these mice, that has been going on for years... the left click button fails after about a year or so.
Summary: I can't remember when I purchased my first Anywhere Mouse MX...a few years ago at least (I still have my original). My original model is nearly flawless. I purchased this mouse because it's one of the few that still has a textured scroll wheel (I HATE smooth scroll!). I used the original as my work horse mouse. Thousands of clicks. Dropped it numerous times, etc. Still works flawlessly.
Summary: I really liked this mouse for a few months, but the hyper scrolling was a real issue for me. I need to have a middle mouse button. Ultimately I hacked the mouse by putting a button under the wheel and soldering it to the one behind the wheel. that worked well for about a year (best mouse ever during that period) until finally the left mouse button stopped working. I fixed that and a few months later the right button went... really you could get more reliable switches...
Summary: It's been a good mouse but after approximately 10 or 11 months of owning it, it has developed an issue where a single click of the mouse button registers as a double click which is very annoying since I am a software engineer who is on the computer 95% of each work day. Also, for as expensive a mouse as the Anywhere Mouse MX is you would think it would be rechargeable...
Summary: I have 2 Anywhere MX mice that I use with my Macbook Pro running Mac OSX 10.8.5 . I've had 1 for about 13 months and the second for 9 months . both have started executing DOUBLE-CLICKs on a single left-click action . I have carefully adjusted the double click speed to NO avail. This results in very frustrating opening of files and when all you are trying to do is select and drag . v v aggravating. I hate to have to buy a new mouse, well mice ... I have to buy 2 !!
Summary: the Marathon model last around 10 months. I'm on the 3rd one now. Lucky me I got them cheap. I hope Logitech (I only buy this brand) fix the problem with the electronics (ends in double-click when you don't want) and they end being the great brand I always enjoy.
Summary: I used to love this mouse....it was easily the best mouse I ever owned for comfort and gaming once you get used to half size between a laptop mouse and a gaming desktop mouse. That being said it was sadly soured my experience over time. The first mouse started to develop problems with the back button after the first year. Logitech graciously replaced it with another one under warranty.
Pros: Nice size, Perfect for laptop, Comfortable, Comes with a case
Cons: Battery life is short under heavy use, Poor construction
Summary: Great mouse, but.. eats the batteries, and clicks funny after 10 months.. Also sticky in touch. I wish to have the same mouse, running on everything, but more energy saving, a bit shorter for my small hand, and lighter, because with two batteries is like a brick, making hand tired. I spent 12-16 hours "on the mouse" a day, and it just stopped clicking normally - doing two clicks instead of one.Very frustrating, I do hundred more clicks..
Summary: Works a treat. The unifying receiver connected with my Logitech keyboard no problem. Everything is good except for two things - it is heavier than I expected for a portable "anywhere" device, and - more importantly - the plastic cover is HORRIBLE. I looked to see how to remove what I assumed to be a protective shipping cover, and when I searched the web for clues, I was disappointed to discover that this cheap shiny, potentially sticky cover is the real thing. Shame.
Summary: This mouse has a great look, weight, and feel, but it disappoints in other key areas. The roller-wheel doubles as a free-spinning wheel (who even uses that?) and click-wheel. It does not allow you to push it to open links in new tabs, which is such a nice feature on every other mouse I've ever used. The side scrolling is nice, but that's nothing special either in the realm of mice. The most annoying thing about this mouse is it's inability to connect and stay connected.
