Summary: Things i don't like about this mouse:
1. the automatic fast scroll works beautifully in Internet Explorer, but only "OK" in Firefox.
2. The automatic fast scroll works sporadically in other apps such as Word. In fact the only place the fast scroll works reliably well is in Internet Explorer, which i don't use.
3. The thumb "wheel" is positioned too far forward. I have average size hands.
4. The thumb "wheel" is ergonomically uncomfortable.
Summary: Major problems: 1.Sudden freezing unpredictably, especially when the mouse pointer changes from arrow to text line. Other times it stutters as you're moving the mouse. This is a well know bug in the forums. Just do a search. 2. Used to the wheel to middle-click? Forget it. It takes force and usually slips. It's useless as middle click function. 3> It would make sense to configure the button just behind the wheel to act as middle click button, no?
Summary: I just bought this mouse yesterday and already my hand is feeling the pain. The way its set up it forces your hand to sit with your palm not resting on it. Basically your finger tips are holding your hand. In its defense, I can see that maybe a smaller hand would fit it better, but at the same time, I don't have very large hands. I'm returning it today and going to try to find one closer to the fit of my old MX-700 which has a great fit anf feel.
MX Revolution: Great mouse . . . execrable software

Summary: I've always found Logitech's products, as well as the software that runs them, to be more than a cut above Microsoft's. In fact, I think that the MX700 is the best mouse ever, and I'm disappointed that it's no longer available. I got the MX Revolution hoping that I'd found a worthy successor. Not so. The Mouse itself is well-designed. Be sure to check out the free-spinning wheel, which I discovered only by accident. Want to scroll way down, fast?
Summary: If Logitech has customer service I couldn't find it. I had to return this mouse because it would not hold its settings. Having a lot of buttons would be great if they worked. I would set them, they would work, until the next time I turned the computer on.
Summary: If the software were as smooth as the hardware, I'd give this 5 stars. But it isn't. Sadly, its beauty is only skin deep. First impression, this mouse is very smooth. It glides smoothly on the desk, the scroll wheel rotates smoothly, even the buttons feel smooth when you click them. That's the good stuff I have to say about this device. On the other hand, the "thumb wheel" is not a wheel at all. It is a rocker switch only.
You say you want a Revolution? Well, you can have mine.

Summary: This mouse is pretty darn cool in concept. So cool, in fact, that I could almost convince myself that I liked it. I mean, how could I not like such a cool looking mouse? AND it's called "Revolution," yeah! Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed by this Revolution, and I switched back to the old regime (the MX 1000). I am a stickler for ergonomics. I want a mouse to feel comfortable in my hand.
Summary: Had two revolutions, the first one I dropped an angle-poise lamp onto the receiver and found out logitech parts store only delivers new receivers to US states, so bought entire new rev, developped charging fault within first two months of use (google 'red flashing battery on mx revolution'...solution is 'slamming down mouse' or cleaning contacts..
Summary: I got this mouse, used it and thought it's not bad, but approx. 2 months after buying it I lost my USB dongle. So I asked Logitech where I could buy one and they told me they don't sell this seperately. That is absolutely diabolical, considering the price of the thing, they obviously expect me to buy a new one. Way to be eco-friendly guys! So sadly I have to buy a new mouse and of course I don't think I'll be going for Logitech.
