Summary: This is mainly a comparison of MX1100 to MX Revolution. I've had the MX1100 for a year, and recently picked up the MX Revolution on sale for a work mouse, but ended up giving it to my girlfriend. She is also used to my MX1100, but immediately liked the MX, whereas I immediately disliked it.
Pros: Pretty Rechargeable No problems in Linux or XP (hidpoint & setpoint) Fits small hands well
Cons: Thumb toggle easily hit accidentally Wheel button pretty easy to push
Pros: The mouse worked great for 3 month (5 eggs for those 3 month).
Cons: After 3 month the left click stopped working properly, it would register 1 out of 10 clicks which makes it extremely frustrating to use. I've tried to use a different USB port for the receiver, reinstall driver, move all wireless devices away from the mouse, tried it on a different PC, but still ...
Summary: Bought for somebody else. Only used it for a day. You should really make use of the Setpoint software. Use it to assign different functions to the various buttons. The middle mouse button for example, didn't seem to work out of the box.
Pros: Nifty scroll wheel. I can scroll so much with so little effort. First wireless mouse I ever used. Did not disappoint. I found it reliable and responsive. Has battery indicator. A lot of functionality for a mouse.
Cons: Scroll wheel functions terribly in games. I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done about it. It often will not register a scroll up or down in-game. As much as I hear people go on about the comfort of the mouse I can't help but wonder why there isn't some sort of rest/protrusion on the right s...
Summary: Get the mx1100 if you have large hands! Don't deal with the built-in battery and charger of the Revolution!
Pros: Awesome features. -Micro Gear scroll wheel is life changing -Extremely comfortable feel
Cons: -Not as big as I hoped but still pretty big -Electronic Micro Gear switch is much worse than the MX1100 verison -Won't charge properly. Seriously, what was Logitech thinking? -Doesn't hold a charge very long
Great Mouse, But Flawed Microswitch Gives It a Short Life

Summary: The good thing is that the MX Revolution is the best mouse I have ever used from a functionality standpoint. Unfortunately it has a major, fatal flaw that makes it a computer consumable - and an expensive one at that! Pros: 1) Excellent precision. The mouse tracks perfectly at very close work.
Pros: Comfortable and I never had any issues with the battery. Thumb button work with most programs in WinXP.
Cons: The right mouse button presses too easliy. I like to rest my fingers on the main buttons so I can use the thunb buttons and I unintentionally right click a lot. Can't click and hold anything but mouse 1, 2, and 3 (scroll wheel button). I used to bind mouse 4 for mic or zooming in games, but all i...
Best wireless mouse, but still could use some improvements

Summary: Another crucial issue with the MX Revolution that other reviewers has listed is its battery charge malfunction. Sometimes when my mouse is in the charger, the LED blinks red and it doesn't charge.
Pros: Terrific design, looks good and feels good on the hands. Wireless technology and rechargeable internal battery so no need to buy AAs or AAAs. Side wheel button function is convenient and interesting. Perfect mouse for the non-gamer multitasking on their computers.
Cons: The middle button (one touch search) is pretty useless and it is the only middle button. Wireless signal gets unresponsive and laggy at times. When this happens, you have to reset the mouse or reset the USB.
Summary: Sadly, there's nothing else on the market with the button options this one has aside from a WoW-branded thing with even more issues than this has. So if you're in need of something with options, this is a great mouse, but don't expect accuracy out of it.
Pros: Lots of buttons that can be mapped on a per application basis - can be useful even in games so long as you don't need accuracy, such as many MMOs. I've also found the per-application mapping useful for common tasks in documents as well.
Cons: The range on the transmitter is awful, I have to keep it within 4-5 feet. Even with it right next to it, it tends to jerk around and doesn't track well. Also, over time the button's responsiveness (namely the thumbwheel) deteriorates, especially if you use it much. It doesn't always seem to charg...
Summary: Out of the box, the mouse looked great. All shiny and black. Over the next couple of days I played around with much of its features. Being a frequent gamer, I had an inkling it wouldn't be on par with my old mouse. The mouse, I have to say, after a week or so started showing its bad side.
Summary: The mouse itself is perfect. If you have used the MX 1000 you know the feel of this one - highly accurate tracking and a nice smooth glide on virtually any surface. The scroll wheel in either manual or free-spin mode is the best I've ever felt.
