Summary: I have used several different Logitech miceover the years, and specifically the MX Revolution Cordless Laser mouse for the past 10 months. Actually I've had two separate MX Revolution mice during the past 10 months since the first one lasted a few months before behaving erratically.
Summary: I've never written a review here at Amazon, but I felt compelled to let other potential buyers know what they *might* experience if they buy this mouse. Before buying, please be aware of the (reasonably common) issues with the built-in rechargeable batteries in this mouse.
Summary: This is a great mouse - probably the best one I ever used. Unfortunately, the batteries are a wonky and the unit stops working after a week. Consider buying the notebook version which has standard, not rechargable batteries.

Summary: There have been frequent failures of this mouse of the DOA kind. Many DOA mice do not communicate with their dongle and the Logitech reset procedure does not help. It isn't clear whether this problem is a design or a production problem.
Works poorly on some surfaces - including Belkin mouse pad

Summary: The laser seems to track very erratically on the Belkin F8E262-BLK WaveRest Gel Mouse Pad. It is so bad that the cursor jumps around making it difficult to even play solitaire smoothly. Regular Logitech LED mice have no such problem. I can use the laser mouse on a wood desktop without any problems.
Summary: Mouse behavior is erratic, flakey, and sometime non-existent. I came from an MX1000, and the cursor was always spot on, never 'twitched', and was very precise. The Revolution is worse (by far) than a $20 optical mouse.

Summary: I have my tower on the floor to my left. I mouse right-handed. The mouse signal has to cross only a monitor and a couple of small speakers to reach the teeny tiny USB key that is the receiver.
Summary: I use Cad software and wanted to buy another Mx 1000 laser mouse, because the number and position of buttons was ideal. The reviews of the MX Revolution were so good, and the MX hard to find, that I bought the MX instead.
