Excerpt: "...what I know. For Starters: The Logitech Pilot Wheel Mouse is quite well priced at £9.99, but, if looked after as I shall explain later, it really will last for years, so it very much worth it. It comes in a simple cardboard box with an eye pleasing and crisp design. Inside, there is little other than the mouse itself and a USB adapter. I assume it also comes with instructions, but I cannot remember for sure, as it is so simple to install ...
Pros: Suitable for right and left handed use, good quality, well priced
Cons: Requires cleaning on occasion, not very special
Excerpt: "...come across a bargain. The Logitech range are the perfect suppliers to fit our criteria on price and with this Pilot Wheel Mouse, they score quite highly in other areas of Rodent Ergonomics too! With its traditional looks and colour, there is nothing outstanding to look at with the Logitech Pilot. In fact, its is very bland in appearance. The only saving grace is perhaps the 2 buttons that mould well around the mouse wheel for scrolling ease. Colours, ...
Summary: I finally decided to get an optical mouse some time last year, when I realised that I couldn't put up with the years of gunk that had accumulated on the ball of my regular mouse any more. This Logitech model is the one I went for, and it's served me well. As an optical mouse, it's basically flawless, and the ergonomics of it are very comfy. The wheel is pretty sturdy too. It's also cheap and very solidly put together.
Summary: I've had this mouse for a year now and I still wonder why it took me so long to buy one. No longer do I have to bang or shake or clean my mouse from lint. This little device glides over nearly anything. The two buttons are customizable so you can set it to left or right hand and single click or double click (just a few of the options). The scrolling wheel is very exact and isn't noisy. There's even a nifty red flash under the mouse that lights up when you move it.
Summary: when my old roller ball mouse packed up (as they do) i decided to try an optical one, but i didnt really want to pay £40-50 for one, as is the case with most of them. This is the cheapest optical mouse i could find but it is still as smooth as the other, more expensive optical mice that i have tried. the main reason i wanted an optical mouse was for games, again i cannot fault it for game playing, it is very smooth and the wheel is a lifesaver!(ideal for shoot 'em ups).
Logitech Pilot Wheel Mouse: Wheely Good Mouse - Really Bad Title
16 September 2001
Summary: What can you really say about a mouse? It moves and it clicks? Well I guess that's the end of this opnion... Yeah, would it be real easy if all opinions could be written that quickly? Anyway, I have (surprise, surprise) a Logitech Wheel Mouse. It works and has done for almost two and a half years with only the odd cleaning required. I have had probably dozens of mice since my first PC and most have only lasted about a year if I had been lucky.
Pros: Good control, Long lasting, Comfortable
Cons: You have to pay for it if a friend doesn't have a spare one, Software is awful, Makes you buy matching keyboards
