Summary: I have owned the Anywhere MX Darkfield mouse for my laptop for years and it performs flawlessly on any surface. I assumed that this one would too. WRONG This thing Stops, starts, and hesitates for no apparent reason on any surface I have tried - even a mousepad!. Darkfield is supposed to be the best and it is on my laptop mouse but this model is a disaster. Frustrating beyond compare to not be able to mouse smoothly.
Summary: I wanted to like this mouse. I got a great deal on it new at B&H, and really enjoyed the previous generation. This one is going in the guest room.
Pros: Nice ergonomics. Metal scroll wheel is nice, but not as nice as previous generation of this mouse, and it feels a bit too narrow.
Cons: Where to begin. First, on OSX, the software is just bad. The universal software won't recognize or pair with the device, though the mouse works just fine. YOU MUST HAVE THE WIRELESS RECEIVER PLUGGED IN FOR THIS MOUSE TO FUNCTION WHEN USING USB. That is just amateur hour. I cannot believe they made a mouse that can be plugged in that still requires the wireless receiver. The tracking on this mouse is just terrible on dark surfaces. Whatever they have done to make it "w...
Excerpt: The ergo on this mouse is nice. It's not great, and it's certainly not a Performance Revolution MX (discontinued). Where to start on the downsides: - It REQUIRES the wireless receiver, even when plugged in via USB. - It operates at 2.4Ghz. It DOES NOT operate well if there happen to be 2.4Ghz devices around, like phones. In fact, it is totally awful. - It tracks horribly on dark surfaces. I have dual 4k monitors, and the skips, jumps and pauses make it unusable.
Summary: Flawed design, extremely overpriced for the quality.
Pros: It functioned well for 2 months, good accuracy, precise. I bought this model hoping for a suitable replacement for the discontinued MX Revolution but it is not.
Cons: Bought three months ago and it no longer charges. The battery is fine but the charging cable is very poorly designed and contacts already fail even after cleaning. My other major complaint about it's function is the scroll wheel. MX Revolution gave the option of metered or free spinning scroll wheel. Free spin is no longer an option.
Cons: * Battery drains after one day's use so I have to tether it constantly. Not acceptable for a wireless mouse. Logitech quality is slipping. After many years of being a customer I think this is the last Logitech product I buy. Tried an alkaline battery and lasts about 4 days. * left/right scroll wheel function feels soft and unresponsive
Summary: Bought it for friend just back from Afghanistan but it's defective. Logitech Support was slow to respond to emails and made it clear from the beginning that they had no interest in helping resolve this known issue with their product.
Pros: As a paperweight with a $99.99 MSRP sticker, it makes an interesting conversational piece. It's all i can say since Logitech doesn't stand by their product & will just string customer along
Cons: Rechargeable battery drains in less than 2 days whether it was in use or not. Logitech quality has been steadily declining the past couple of years but didn't realize customer satisfaction had been ditched completely
Summary: wish I bought a mouse from another company
Pros: mouse has worked great for over a year but now....
Cons: I have been trying to rma my mouse for a month and a half now because the left and right click buttons like to double/triple click when pressed only once but Logitech is giving me every excuse they can think of not to honor the warranty...I have over a year and a half left on the warranty....I can only give this product one star for the bad customer service(wish there was negative rating options) its not neweggs fault but Logitech has lost me as a customer...DO NOT BU...
Pros: Wirelessness, ergonomically comfortable, can use same receiver as other devices.
Cons: The mouse wheel is useless unless you turn on the physical ratchet switch. When you scroll with the wheel in smooth mode whatever you're scrolling will not stop where you want it. It will pause for a moment, then move more in the same direction, or in the other direction, or both one after the other. Here's one example of how messed up that is: If you're in an application that uses ctrl + wheel for zooming, like a web browser, and you hover over a link and hold ctrl t...
