Excerpt: If you are going to purchase a top end mouse, chances are that it will have a laser. These mice are no doubt growing fast in popularity, and we are going to take a look at one of Logitechs best, the MX 610. Not only does it have a laser, but it can even notify you of e-mail or IM’s!
Summary: This is a marvellous mouse for the left-handed user. Mine fell on the floor and the scroll button now does not work. Contacted Logitech but it has been discontinued and they no longer do repairs for this model. Shame.
Summary: This is the third time i have attempted to write this review. the other two times have been foiled my by pressing the 'back' key on the side of the mouse when removing my hand from it. Ironically, whilst I have found this all too easy to do accidentally, when holding the mouse in the hand, it is not very easy to do so intentionally! That said, this is the only left handed ergonomic mouse on the market, and is a significant cut above the non ergonomic mice on the market.
Summary: when i first saw this and the read the reviews i was dubious, but took the plunge and I'm glad i did. Its larger than my old wireless, but concidering the tech & design its perfectly designed for left hand operation. the configuration is easy to follow and very handy. the forward & Back controls are a god send and so handy. OK so whats wrong with it. I have found the I.M & Email buttons are not very useful and only work on certain app's.
Summary: What a waste of money. It is not fit for purpose. The mouse is jerky and always fails to wake up meaning that every time you go to use it you have to shake it around until the cursor/arrow responds. It takes ages to get it to rest on the item you want to click on and then you may have to click (and jitter it around) a few times.
Summary: It`s a mouse and it works as you`d expect any Logitech products to work ... perfectly. There`s also a left-handed version of the MX610 which is great for south-paw souls who have problems working in a right handed world. I have one myself and the computer has been so much easier to use since I got it.
Summary: I had been looking for an ergonomic and programmable mouse for 9 month, and found this one in a store to try it. It sits great under the hand, has 10 (!) programm buttons. But why, in heaven's name, is it only for lefties? I want this mouse, but I am right-handed. So, I had to resort to the MX620, which has fewer buttons and an somewhat awkward wheel concept.
Summary: I'm one of these left handers that has always tried to fit in - I just manage with right handed stuff - so I've been clicking and dragging with 'generic' mice for longer than I care to remember! - I bought this because I wanted some programmable buttons for an application I have to use a lot - and It's an absolute treat - comfortable, tracks perfectly and with 10 buttons you can programme individually for each application, very powerful.
Summary: I use the left-hand version of the Logitech MX610 on a daily basis. The contoured shape fits my hand comfortably. It has a pleasant, slightly rubbery feel along the black side grips, and the two principle buttons cover a large area making clicking easy. The surface appears to remain quite clean and only occasionally needs gentle wipe and brush down. The wheel however does gather dust, and will need cleaning with a ball of Blutack.
Summary: This is a nice mouse, well made and worked straight out the box, fine without drivers. I did install drivers to reverse the buttons (I am not that left handed and have to use right handed mice most of the time). The one dissapointment is that even having installed the drivers I have not (as yet) worked out how to get the extra buttons to work within games. But this may be me or a limitation of the games.
