Summary: Logitech's setpoint software gives you several options, but little is mentioned in any of this mouse's literature about how to correctly use gestures (as demoed in a video), and which programs can use them vs which can't.
Pros: Reliable, functional, very cool looking, plus you can use it in mid air at a distance! Works surprisingly well in mid-air. Love the virtual scroll wheel. Love the artificial clicking sound it makes as you scroll. Nice touch!
Cons: In all practicality, while I love this mouse and want to give it a 5 star rating, I can't. It's no good for gaming, because when using it on the desktop on a mousepad, it's too oddly shaped to be gripped comfortably. Also, something's slightly misaligned to where it rocks back and forth ever so s...
Cons: Since newegg doesn't let me edit reviews, I'm adding this review to add one more big gripe: The scrolling area doesn't work nearly as well as the actual scroll wheel on my logitech vx nano or even my 10 year old microsoft mouse. It's more fussy, harder to find with your finger, and especially in ...
Summary: I use this mouse for showing people things on the web with my HDTV, but for Windows Media Center it's much better to use a standalone TV style IR remote control like the Mediagate that I bought on newegg.
Pros: Most useful free air mouse I've used, much better than the gyro-based ones. I got a very good price on this, much lower than MSRP. People don't realize this, but they don't have to point it at the screen in free air mode. It is ergonomically more comfortable than holding it out at the screen.
Cons: Too fatiguing to use for web surfing, channel surfing, or any intensive use; it's almost impossible to keep the mouse over the frequently used controls on the screen. And as a desktop mouse the buttons are in the wrong place so I have to shift my hands between moving the mouse and clicking. The m...
Great for HTPC - but not quite yet a replacement for a real mouse
Michael T., Newegg
5 December 2009
Summary: Overall, this works well for a dedicated HTPC where you have to be able to interact without a surface, and I will keep it for that, but this thing would never work as a substitute as a *REAL* mouse for a computer for any other use.
Pros: Works fairly decent without a surface. The volume control guesture feature works great, but the thumb wheel on the MX Revolution works even better for volume control.
Cons: 1. It's not designed very well ergonomically. The buttons are in a horrible place. I need another finger in the palm of my hand to use them, otherwise this is a two-handed mouse. Kind of funky. 2. The scrolling sensor is a poor excuse to make a mouse without a real scrollbar. Most the time this t...
Summary: Do not buy this for a laptop. The large USB reciever cannot be stored in the mouse and will be easy to loose it cannot be left on the laptop because it is so long it will be easy to break.
Pros: Reduce CTS, cool for presentations, currently turns alot of heads. Pointer works great when it is working well.
Cons: No replacable battery why not allow us to use our own AA batteries logitech come on? So you also have to charge it in a bulky chargin station. Poor battery life it only lasts me one day on a full charge. The reciever is long and there is no where to store it on the mouse or in the charger. If you...
Summary: I upgraded from an MX510 and I still prefer my old mouse to this one. It can be really hard to get used to. With the panel instead of a scroll wheel and the amount that it freezes up or isn't very responsive I would not suggest this mouse for any gaming at all.
Pros: Has a lot of nice features and works great in air. Overall good mouse that works fine.
Cons: Tends to skip around a lot or freeze for a few seconds even when fully charged(may be a problem on my end? I don't know).
Summary: *the location of the buttons seems weird. you cant really use the ones down the center and the right and left mouse buttons without changing your grip. *the wii mote is allot more precise in its cursor tracking. *nifty to try out but i mostly just use it as glorified wireless mouse.
Pros: *decent range *decent battery life *looks good (if you like staring at your mouse like an art sculpture [think mac]) *you do not necessarily need to keep the mouse upright when in the air (you can have it be upside down/sideways). allowing for more comfortable use.
Cons: *tends to drift when used in the air (seems to move off on its own) *does not play nice with other mice (i had another mouse [track ball] hooked up to the computer and it made air mode virtually unusable because it drifted too much [note when two reg mice are plugged in they both control the posi...
