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.
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.
Excerpt: I've only ever owned wired Mice for fear of poor battery life, but eventually took the plunge and bought a Logitech MX1000 Cordless Laser Mouse from Ebuyer for £38.37 plus £3.83 delivery. The mouse has a non-obtrusive Logitech logo on the top. The Left and Right-click buttons are part of the casing / shell so you do not see where the buttons begin. I think this design looks really nice compared to normal mice and looks much more streamlined.
Summary: I received my mouse and I was very much looking forward to using it. Once I got it installed (after about 5 seconds), I thought I'd put it to work straight away. TO me it feels weird... My old mouse is a Logitech, and it's one of the best mice I've ever had. The only reason I wanted to replace it, was because it's too light for my gaming. The new mouse feels cheap, and clunky and it's certainly not the quality I'd expect from Logitech.
Excerpt: I have this mouse primarily as my gaming mouse on my PC. I bought it for around £40 at PC World about a year ago. Since then im glad to say its still working even after lots of use and is still as good as when I bought it. When it comes to looks the mouse itself does look rather funky and cool. Mines in a dark grey/blue and silver (not sure whether it comes in any different colours) and looks rather smart sitting on my desk.
Summary: As you can see from other reviews, this is not an average mouse. It is definitely for those who want a large, comfortably shaped (right-handed!) mouse with the kind of precise action you don't even get with most wired mice, let alone wireless ones. Together with its cradle it is too big to be portable, but fine on a desktop - if your taste is for this sort of mouse it's a delight to use. But I think Logitech have missed one obvious trick.
Summary: I asked for a programmable mouse for work and they ordered me one of these. When i got it i thought that it looked extremely cool and felt extremely good and after a little while it hasn't let me down yet. I use a lot of 3D and Graphics Software at work and the mouse seems to be up to the accuracy and reliability needed. Even when the mouse loses battery and conks out the accuracy is still on top form until the last nano second.
Summary: I have to agree with others this is the best mouse I have ever used. Far better with the laser than the optical & obviously the corded mouse. Have had to replace it once as it got stuck hence the 4 stars, otherwise absolute bliss. Especially when playing games, makes it so much easier! Have recommend the MX1000 to others, our IT manager used it the other day and was very impressed. It does require its own power source but is, I have to say again, excellent.
Probably one of the best mice around. Incredible performance and lots of useful functions.

Excerpt: -Introduction: The Mouse Dance- I remember a time when the only mice that you could buy had a surprisingly heavy rubber ball underneath and an absolute maximum of two buttons. It would not be very long before the rubber ball would collect fluff and dirt and very effectively transfer it to the microswitches inside the mouse. Thats when the real fun would begin.
