Excerpt: The MX revolution is a unique and innovative mouse manufactured my Logitech. It features seven buttons, has two scroll bars, and has a very precise laser to control your movements. It comes with a sleek base where you can recharge the mouse. There is a green LED indicator bar on the mouse unit itself too so you can know exactly how much juice you have left. One of the biggest drawbacks is that it is really tailored toward people who use their right hand for the mouse.
Excerpt: I've used these for awhile. I've got 2 of them now. It's everything I need from a mouse at this point. It's extremely accurate, customizable, fast(although not fast enough that I'd recommend to hardcore gamers), and wireless. Some have complained about it not being bluetooth, but that's never been a drawback for me. I can usually get a couple weeks out of the battery with normal daily use. It requires 2 pieces other than the mouse itself.
Summary: Nearly didn't buy this mouse after looking at the top reviews on it here at Amazon. Then I noticed they were all written in 2006 or 2007.
In any case, here's some advice to get the most out of your mouse:
Fully uninstall any old Logitech Setpoint drivers before you start. The first time I just installed the newer drivers assuming it would uninstall the older driver if needed. Bad idea -you know what they say about assuming. LOL.

Excerpt: I bought this mouse to get OSX support, which the MX1000 did not have. I have been very happy with it for almost a year now. Here are some points that helped me make the decision to make an expensive purchase. I have big hands, many mice just don't feel too terribly comfortable to me. The design is rather sexy, as mice go. Many of the designs of today are unattractive and that unattractiveness leads to uncomfortable mousing.
Join the new revolution with the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse
28 September 2007
Excerpt: I am an everyday computer user and couldn't imagine life without it. I can't even say how many computer mice I have been through with each one being just as disappointing as the last. I really didn't see this accessory as a very important part of my computer setup so I would only spend around $20 or less. No wonder I went through so many. I finally got fed up, did some research, and decided to purchase the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse .
Summary: I bought this mouse 6 months ago. At the time, I was a little put out by the $100 price. But it proved worth it in the following months. Programming is easy, once you get the jist of it. Tons of buttons make it perfect for gaming. But, as with all good things, they come to an end before we'd like. The batteries, after less than 6 months of use, refuse to hold an adequate charge to get more than a half hour of gaming in.
Summary: Best mouse on the market, without question! The weighted "flywheel" scroll wheel is THE feature here - I don't like a lot of configurable buttons, but the scroll wheel is so excellent, it's easy to ignore some of those extra buttons. You just give the wheel a flick and you sail down long web pages and multi-page documents. Touch the wheel and it stops - couldn't be simpler or nicer. You get used to it in mere minutes.
Summary: Opening the Box -------------- One of the hardest products to actually get out of its packaging I've come across. The package designers have obviously studied Apple's sleek look, but even getting the install disk unstuck from the underside of the interior box took more effort than it should! Installing the Software (MAC users pay attention!
