Summary: This mouse is smooth and nicely responsive! The newer mice seem to be creeping up too large in size. I though having a Laser mouse would be noticably superior than an optical, but my experience isn't showing that. I have the Logitech MX 1000 and love how many buttons there are to customize, but this MX 300 still feels so much nicer to move and that's even in spite of it being a wired mouse and the MX 1000 cordless!
Summary: The MX 300 is relatively simple when compaired to monstrosities that seem to be popular these days. There are very few products on the market that combine a very precise sensor with a simple profile. The MX 300 is just that, however. Despite it's cheap pricetag and standard button configuration, the MX 300 uses the same ultra-precise optical sensor you'll find in the more expensive MX 500 and MX 700 mice.
Summary: Accurate little optical mouse. I plugged into an xp laptop and it worked right away (i didn't install the logitech software). The scroll wheel is stiff and loud, but the minor modification described in one of the previous reviews worked great. this mouse replaced the microsoft basic optical mouse (same retail price) which never worked properly (the pointer would jump around constantly).
Summary: This mouse is excellent for gaming. No skipping even when I move the mouse really fast. It's comfortable and fits my hands pefrectly. If you buy this mouse do not install the Logitech MouseWare software, it screws up the mouse wheel for some reason. Just stick with the built in drivers in Windows XP and the mouse should rock.
Summary: Firstly, to those who complain about the scroll wheel being slow and unresponsive -- it seems to be an issue with the drivers. However, I found an option in the Control Panel/Mouse section to revert back to MS style controlling. That seems to fix any issues I had while still retaining the extra 4th button functionality.
for a first person shooter gamer this is the thing

Summary: i play quake 3 arena a lot and this mouse is the best i've used, it doesnt slide when you run your hand too fast and it fits your hand perfectly. i have also read loads of reviews and it seems to be one of the most popular amongst professional gamers! its also a very good price at Amazon, ive checked other places and it costs up to £37!!! amazon is certainly one of the cheapest.
Summary: This is an excellent bargain-priced mouse, great for gaming and all around use. The only problem I've found is that if you have large hands, right-clicking is a little awkward until you adjust your finger position a little bit. Highly recommended!
Summary: I tried most of the top notch mice and I fell in love with this mouse. Even though people love MX700 very much, I still feel the difference between wired and wireless mouse. MX300 so far the best mouse I have ever owned. The size of it just fits my palm unlike MX700 or other wireless mice. Wireless mice tends to be quite big because of the fact that it has to carry battery. I have to tell you that no wireless mouse can beat wired mice as of yet.
Summary: This is a very good optical mouse. Comfortable, responsive, and it comes with great drivers. However, Logitech has already released a replacement product, the MX310, that is an upgrade to this version by adding three more buttons. A forward button, a back button, and a sixth "switch button". The 310 is a great product and competes well against the other 5 button, optical mice.
Summary: Works very smoothly (and precisely) in general use and in games. However, I have three small complaints: 1) The left/right buttons are somewhat narrow as they do not go to the edge of the mouse. 2) The wheel button is needlessly hard to click. 3) The cord could be a longer. They skimped and the cable is about 1.5 feet shorter than my other MS/Logitech mice.
