Summary: I bought 5 of these mice for a DIY project. After taking the sensor board out of one to build into something else and finding that it didn't work. I tried each of the 4 other mice fresh out of the package and found that none of them worked. 5 mice and NONE of them worked at all.
Pros: Maybe on a NEW version of this product. None on this recertified.
Summary: Thanks to the other posts I found the right software on the Logitech site. Even there, some digging was involved. The "connector utility" is key here and make sure to choose the right OS and 32 or 64 bit version. Had to click several times for drop-down selector to display Windows7 but it is there!
Pros: It was cheap and arrived next day. Works fine but took a while to get there.
Cons: A case where no software included could be troublesome if you are not familiar with downloading drivers and such from the internet. Spend the extra money for a new one!
Summary: A lot of people keep complaining about these being DOA without doing any research. For one all of the pseudo-good reviews explain what the problem is. You have to install the Logitech Setpoint software (v. 3.x, I used 3.3) and then use the "Connect Utility" to sync the mouse with the receiver.
Pros: Only uses one battery, reasonably good features, crazy cheap, it works fine once you install the logitech software
Cons: Big USB receiver, not really plug and play - you have to install software and then it'll start working
Summary: Newegg should make it clear that in this case "re-certified" means "may have visible signs of prior use and comes with no software nor instructions". It would also help if Newegg posted links for downloading the required software. It's not easy to find.
Pros: Good size, worked nicely even from 6 feet away, "tilt wheel" allows horizontal scrolling, 1-AA power is cool
Cons: To make it work (on Win XP) I had to download (from the Logitech web site) and run both the SetPoint software (I used the latest version, 6.0, 25 MB) and (available there separately) the "Connect Utility" (12 MB).
The mouse works but it took work to get it connected

Pros: Great price and works great
Cons: needed to download setpoint 3.1 to get the connect utility to get it going , not true plug and play. no software or documentation with unit. Newegg should provide instructions and link to drivers
Pros: I have had this laptop mouse for about 2 1/2 to 3 years now. I have never had any problems with it. It worked right out of the box with absolutely not one single instalation issue. Battery life is excelent, I have only replaced the battery 3 or 4 times in the last 2 1/2 to 3 years. And that's wit...
Cons: After three years of daily use the bottom glide pad has come off. But, not really a problem considdering it's age. I just reglued the glide pad and kept working.
Summary: new needs to include the drivers and connect software, or provide a URL for the drivers. not every customer that orders this is tech savvy or will know to where to look
Pros: Cheap. I mean really cheap, and free shipping
Cons: Having to located the drivers and the connect software to make this mouse work. It arrived with drivers, and i assumed that it would be plug-n-play. If you are expecting a plug-n-play mouse do not get this!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I had previously left a comment on these mice. They had arrived dead and I returned them. After contacting Newegg, ( and leaving a comment on the site) they removed the restocking fee and they reimbursed the shipping cost. I felt that in fairness to Newegg, I had to post the resolution.
