Excerpt: I've owned the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse for about 6 years, it started operating worse and worse with no way to open it up and clean it. So I bought the Performance Mouse MX Wireless (similar design) and found the drivers to be even worse than my usual Logitech experience. Fewer features to be found on the MX Wireless than the Revolution (they don't make one that does) and in use they are unstable.
Pros: Forward and back buttons, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Nice ergonomic design, Nice Ergonomic Design Fo
Cons: Button In Front Of The Sc, Inaccurate Tracking, Slow Response, Zoom Function Is Hard To
Summary: The mouse feels great has good tracking but fails in the middle button category. I returned it thinking it was only a manufacture Issue but it has same exact issue on the second one. The middle button down click which is used constantly for 3D drafting software does not work properly or is poorly positioned. The only way I could get it to work was positioning my finger in the tens of thousands of inch position and pressing down and to the right.
Summary: Do not get this mouse if you are a PC gamer. The charger that you get with the package can't be used while dragging the mouse around your mouse pad or table. It just falls out after 10 minutes of charging. Also, the battery life varies a lot. Sometimes (after fully charged battery) the battery can last for 1-2 weeks, but sometimes it only lasts for just 3-6 days. The tip of the charger can also get broken easily.
Summary: Thought this is a rechargeable and programmable, it is somewhat of a eminent disaster over the M705 marathon which is $50.00 less and works off of two AA batteries. I use rechargeable. I own several keyboards and mice by Logitech but this over the M705 Marathon isn't worth it in the least. Now Logitech is a little off on the speck. My M750 does everything this mouse does except die. Yup, this rechargeable goes, you're toast!
Summary: First, it is not good for small hand ppl. Performance Mx is too big for my hand. Second, my battery indicator light is not working. It is never on. So I don't know how much battery time I have. Third, the most annoying part, it produces a double-click when I click once. My windows xp is DISABLE for the single-click to open folders. I don't know why it still does this. I do programming and code.
Summary: It's shame because this otherwise is a great mouse.
Pros: I was hesitant to get this mouse due to some of the reviews I read. The middle-mouse button and wheel is extremely important to me. But first, the mouse does has a lot of pros... I experienced NO wireless delay at all. It works great on glossy surfaces and has a great feel in your hand. I have big hands so I like a big mouse.
Cons: The bad news (and also the deal breaker) the middle mouse button is impossible to click. And I use the middle-mouse button for all my 3D programs. Due to the design it's really hard to trigger the middle mouse button. It's also impossible to trigger it without scrolling the super-sensitive scroll wheel (which will affect zoom in a lot of 3D programs). The scroll wheel is overly sensitive and no matter what settings I used for the mouse in OS X, it always scrolled seve...
Summary: We have been using these mice for over 3 years at our company. While these were awesome mice at first Logitech is at the point where they seem to be cutting corners more and more to make more profit on these devices. Keeping the price at a premium. We have purchased over 40 of these mice in the last couple years. Over 10 of them have had the left mouse button work sporadically or quit working altogether.
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).
Summary: This mouse isn't the MX Revolution. The look and feel are similar however not as contoured and the features are day and night. For one I personally don't like the forward and back buttons they stick out making the mouse loose that sleek look. The other is the thumb wheel is gone which you can program for 3 different functions. The REVOLUTION did suffer from phantom clicking that isn't software related but most likely a problem with the pin inside.
Excerpt: This mouse is incredibly comfortable to use , even for long periods of time. I works flawlessly on my glass table which is why I purchased this item. The one caveat and it is a major one is the appalling battery life, fully charged it lasts only two days of normal use. I even turn it off when not in use. With a little above average use and the battery indicator starts flashing only after a day and a half. I find this to be unacceptable and quite annoying.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
