Summary: Pros: I've owned this awesome mouse for almost three years now. I payed over $100 back then. It has worked excellently for me. I have its receiver plugged into my keyboard. I am able to use it up to 25ft away. I have NEVER experienced any sporadic movement from it. The batteries are still strong even after three years of heavy use. Everyone that has used my computer has commented on how much they love my mouse.
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.

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: I really like this mouse -- it feels very comfortable and ergonomic (I am trying stave off carpal tunnel syndrome) and movement is very smooth. I love the free-spinning wheel for moving around in long documents, and I also like the back and forth scroll action available from the wheel --- if you press it to the side, you can scroll from left to right.
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!
Overall, one of the best mice I've used, and definitely the most comfortable.

Excerpt: I've been using Logitech mice for years and due to the wheel sensor dying on the last one I opted for the MX Revolution (previous one was a MX Performance). Ergonomically this is one of the best mice I've used - it is moulder so that your hand fits round it naturally, with a groove for your thumb; relax your hand and it fits the contours of the mouse perfectly. It comes with a charging dock, USB radio dongle, and the Logitech Setpoint software.
A great mouse with great design let down by flimsy mouse wheel

Excerpt: The Logitech MX Revolution is one of the best wireless mice currently available today, but it is let down by the flimsy mouse wheel. The design of the mouse is slick and rather sexy (yes sexy). It is coated in black; the left side is more of a glossy black, the right side is a dark shade of black and the top is a light shade of black (the top and right side also have a fantastic smooth texture).
