obsolescence designed in

Summary: After a year or two the pairing code on the bottom of the mouse has rubbed off, making it impossible to pair to my machine and therefore more or less useless. This is obsolescence designed in, environmentally abhorrent, and not good value for money. Avoid.

Summary: My first Logitech V270 worked flawlessly for years with the internal bluetooth radio in my laptop. No frills, no dongles, just plain performance. Then I stupidly left on a table at a conference, and it of course walked away. So, I turned around and bought another one and it has consistently performed as well as the first. Again, there aren't 27 buttons on this mouse, just a basic scroll wheel (no side-to-side scrolling), and 3 mouse buttons (including the wheel).
Summary: An excellent mouse. Only small problem might be for some is that it doesn't activate immediately every time you let it sit for a moment then use again. It takes a spits second to activate the laser. Otherwise the best mouse I have ever owned.
Summary: Bought this product used from a seller through Amazon. It comes with a nice little pouch to store the mouse in. Once I paired the mouse with my MacBook, the mouse is recognized within seconds of turning it on. It has great energy management, as I use this mouse at work all day and it has been running on 2 AA batteries for weeks now. It feels great, good ergonomics, and feels solid and not cheap. I have zero complaints about it.
Summary: This is my first bluetooth mouse to compliment my new Dell XPS notebook. I have large hands so i really like the full size. The travel mice are to small for me. I like the feel and responsiveness of this mouse and the bluetooth technology is great. No more usb connection or cords. However, this mouse does have a small glitch that other reviewers have mentioned. It will occasionally stop working for 5-10 seconds.
Summary: I bought this mouse a year or so ago and it worked great for the first 2 hours. Now it disconnects so frequently that it is a much better paperweight than anything else. I tried numerous versions of SetPoint, which wasn't supported in Vista when I bought the mouse but even when I installed XP again the mouse still failed. Needless to say I purchased a LX 710 keyboard/mouse combo that I am very happy with.
Summary: A good bluetooth mouse. The only problem is a little delay as it 'wakes up' after not being used. I have had it on for 3 weeks now and haven't noticed any problems other than the aforementioned.
Summary: Great look, decent price and works well on my macbook, setup was very easy. Also, tried to use it on my work laptop(lenova with Windows XP), can't get this thing to work. Being a mac fan, I'm going to blame this on windows.
Summary: My wife experienced months of intermittent blue screen crashes after installing the mouse's accompanying Logitech SetPoint version 4.24 software on a Lenovo T60 laptop running Windows XP SP3. I kept the machine fully updated via ThinkVantage and Windows Update; swept for spyware, defragged, etc., but sporadic crashes continued, for example, when coming out of Standby. She was able to tolerate this until XP began crashing with blue screens every 21 minutes!
Summary: I bought this as I thought I had Bluetooth on my primary notebook, then later confirmed it did not. So I went ahead and bought the Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks - the one with the ultra tiny receiver. I love the Nano, it's great and I can program the extra buttons for my game. Anyway, I finally got around to buying a Bluetooth adapter for another notebook and tried out the V270 mouse.
