Summary: I've been looking to replace this mouse recently knowing i'd had it a long time so i came on to see when it was released as i know i bought it just after it was released so i was pleasantly surprised to see reviews from 2004 making mine almost ten which for a piece of computer equipment is astonishing, its still a fantastic mouse at that, mine is just on its last legs battery wise.
Excerpt: the mouse is junk in my opinion, once you click the zoom button it does not reset to 100% on its own and you have no way to know where 100% is again. Sorry makes it junk, it is not accurate, resets the windows mouse settings constantly, all a round I thought it was nice when I first hooked it up just because it seemed to run nice but all the little things have just changed my mind I can not stand it and can not wait to replace it and it will not be with another logitech...
Excerpt: I bought this mouse a good 2-3 years ago now. It has a solid construction however the charging base is not the best. The optical sensor is actually a laser, however i havent noticed any difference between this and any other normal optical sensored mouse. The mouse always picks up movement that i make regardless of how fast i move it.
Summary: A good mouse whilst it works, but after about a year the charging dock started failing to connect to the mouse properly. Another year later and the left mouse button no longer works properly - it double or triple or even 25-clicks when you touch it sometimes. I've got mice that still work 20 years later, so this is a pretty poor effort. It hasn't even had much use because I've been away a lot - it still looks brand new to the eye.
Owned one nearly a year, and just ordered a second one.

Summary: First of all, why four rather than five stars? 1: I like the choice to renew batteries. Since I have had mine with great performance throughout and beyond the warantee period, then I have nothing to lose by opening the unit and finding somethign that fits ... but this will be inconvenient and user-option to change batteries is, I say, sacrosanct. Moreover, this mouse is simply too good and well made to have its life limited by its battery.
A mouse that you can rely upon and work hard and long

Summary: We've all dabbled with wireless devices, and no doubt we've all experienced a few flops! I can remember buying cheap mouse & keyboard combinations from the Aldi supermarket for just £14.99 - novel on day one, but after experiencing poor battery life, and frequent dropped letters when typing, and erratic cursor movement, these cheap versions usually end up in the loft after just a few weeks.
Excerpt: After much emming and aring with people over what was better a mouse with a cord, which can't run out of batteries, and cannot break as easily, with less things to go wrong, or a wireless rechargable mouse. In the end after reading numerous reviews, i decided to get the Lazer mouse, and chose the expensie one with all the fancy awards on the box, as you do.
