Best Mouse Ever
5 days ago
Summary: My first MX mouse was purchased in the fall of 2009. This week the left click began to hang up so it was time to replace. In my opinion 4 years of HEAVY use is not to bad. When I say heavy use I mean I use this mouse on average 50+ hours a week at work and approximately another 25 hours at home through out the week. I have never replaced the battery and have used my computer as the primary charging source. If you want a mouse with bells and whistles this is the one.
Summary: Had this mouse since October 2013. It no longer charges. I replaced the rechargeable battery with another, still didn't work. What I don't like about Logitech is that you have to return a defective item first before receiving a replacement which means you either have to buy a wired keyboard and mouse in the interim in order to use a desktop computer. I've purchased several Logitech combination wireless keyboards in the past seven years (MX5500).
Summary: Not smooth at all, the tracking is like sand in Ball bearings. Really gritty ( makes it tough clipping images). Spend 10 hours a day doing design work. Not sure if it's lag time, due to it being wireless or what.
Summary: I needed a replacement for my aged MX Revolution. This is not supposed to be about the MX Revolution, but I just have to say that imho the Revo was the best mouse ever made, period. Unfortunately, the Performance Mouse MX is FAR from the Revo’s perfection. First of all, the PMMX’s shape, even though only slightly different from the Revo at first glance, turns out to be considerably different, and much less ergonomic.
Summary: This is a very nice mouse, the function to allow it to scroll freely is very nice to browse long pages. The 4 buttons on the side are nice, but I only use the forward/backwards one. The rare unresponsiveness is a slight nuisance, but only when playing video games. This issue did not occur until 10 months in. The Darkfield technology is interesting, but it still feels best when using it on a mousepad. I would recommend this item if it is on sale when you purchase it.
Pros: Receiver is very small and inconspicuous, Able to use while charging, Able to use on multiple surfaces, Free scroll very nice function, Very comfortable to use for a long period of time.
Cons: This mouse seems to stutter occasionally - in the middle of a game, the mouse would stop responding, but only for a couple of seconds - this issue rarely occurs, but is still an annoyance, and only started happening near the 10th month mark.
Summary: Great mouse that I bought for on-the-go use with my new laptop. Love that its wireless receiver is a tiny, unobtrusive one. Figuring out how to set/increase DPI took a google search but otherwise no real complains. Just be aware that 1500 dpi is really weird when you're used to much higher dpi numbers.
Pros: - Very comfortable, - Nice shape and design
Cons: - 1500 dpi is a harsh downgrade from 6400 dpi
Summary: I am left handed but I learned to use this mouse because of its functionality. MX is a powerhouse. With programmable buttons and a smooth glide over any desk surface, I prefer this mouse over Apple's mouse and touchpad. I find that my fingers tire when using touch pads. The ergonomics of this mouse are perfect. This mouse was worth handing over the controls to my right hand.
Summary: I have been using this mouse for 18 months. It has worked perfectly until about 2 months ago when the left button started to behave erratically, it dropped selected items when dragging, it double clicked instead of single clicking and it recently got worse to the point it does not select anymore without a few tries. The design is great other than the two side buttons that I keep pressing without meaning to.
Summary: I lost the receiver for my old MX Revolution and had to buy a new mouse so I went with what appeared to be the replacement. What a disappointment! No thumb wheel and there is a stupid button that only changes how the wheel behaves and can't be programmed. The middle button of the wheel works about 10% of the time and is very frustrating. The Anywhere MX is much more useful but not as comfortable. Please bring back the old one!
Summary: For a top-of-the-range, I expected much more. Battery life is too short, and the silver line begins to crumble after a while giving it a bad look. Also the connection it uses clashes with your wifi, and if you for example start copying a large file over your home network, it starts to behave erratic (this was also case with the mouse I had before, I guess it uses the same frequency as the wifi).
