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. No drifting, no lag time. I see some reviews here that indicate otherwise and that is usually due to interference from another wireless source nearby.
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. The wireless receiver, which is a small usb dongle, seems to "skip" every so often.
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. The buttons are well placed and overall it fits perfectly in my hand. I've been using it for 12 to 16 hours a day for the last two weeks and have no complaints on the ergonomics.
Neat, feature packed mouse if you keep it charged....

Summary: This is probably the most comforatable, accurate and feature rich mouse I have ever seen, no doubts about it, and I have gone through most of the top ones. Having owned multiple cordless types, it has become a imperative feature. This one adds some very neat features and comfort above any other. The multi-tap wheel for click or freespin is a great option, and the thumb wheel is nice once you get used to it.
Summary: The look feel and battery life are fine. Programming was easy, although the Mac driver had to be downloaded (it wasn't on the included CD). There are lots of buttons and some can be programmed for application-specific functions, although the number of compatible applications is small. My main problem is that some of buttons do not always do what they're supposed to do.
Summary: I'm not one for writing reviews, but I felt I had to make a comment on this. Having just built a monster PC costing close to £4000, I felt it needed a mouse and keyboard to compliment it, and having used a lot of Logitech hardware in the past, went with their top-of-the-line mouse. The device itself feels pretty sturdy, and it's ergonomic qualities don't disappoint. It feels the business, and fits into one's hand perfectly.
Summary: I bought one of these for home use after enviously eyeing-up a work colleague's. (Its used mainly for CAD work.) The mouse is very comfortable to hold and retains its charge for a decent amount of time. I really, really like the scroll-wheel. Works very well in both Vista and OS X. The problem that I have found (and searching google many, many other people have found) is that the mouse 'stutters' if the USB dongle is too far from the mouse.
