Reviews and Problems with Logitech MX300 Optical Mouse
Showing 1-10 of 20

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: 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: 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: It doesn't scroll too well over mouse pads, so if you use a cushioned wrist pad be careful. Other than that I've had no problems with this mouse. We bouught it for my wife. It's somewhat small, so it's ideal for notebooks and travel, and fine for a woman's hand. I wouldn't recommend it for gamming or large handed persons.
Summary: I bought this mouse as a gold box offer because I had been frustrated with the constant need to clean my old, mechanical mouse. I've only used it for a few days, but they have been really good days. The mouse points where I mean it to point without ever sticking, and that alone makes it worth my money.
Summary: I bought my MX300 from the local Best Buy (30$ and a 15$ rebate on the way). Previously, I used Logitech's basic optical mouse (a great mouse for a great price) and there doesn't seem to be much of a difference. I'm not much of a gamer (there may be a difference for these people), but there doesn't seem to be much of a difference except for the additional programmable button (which I do not make much use of). I just use Alt+Tab to change windows anyway.
Scroll wheel lags and can't bind button in CS, but good

Summary: This mouse is great for gaming, but the scroll wheet lags in IE, just like all other logitech mice. Also that useful little button on top can't be bound to any keys in counter-strike. What a shame, bad quality assurance or design in my opinion. If I could bind that button, this mouse would have gotten 5 stars, and I might have been able to recommend it to others.
Summary: We needed two new mice -- one to replace a broken one and another that was wearing out and was a bit big for my wife's hands. This mouse was a good fit for my wife's hands. For my medium size hands, it also worked well. The mouse buttons require just a tad of toe-in, but hardly noticeable. The wheel is a little clicky when rotating, but not too much. The middle button on the unit (not the normal button, but a special one) was basically useless.
Summary: It's a mouse...what more is there to say? But as far as mice go, it works great in applications that require precise mouse movements such as video games and image editing. The only thing bringing down the review is the price, which was a little bit pricy compared to Microsoft mice, and even some other Logitech products.
