Summary: The mouse itself I like, but I am very disappointed with the color!!! It looks absolutely nothing like the pretty bright navy color in the photo which was the main reason for this purchase! In person it looks much, much darker.....more like a blackish blue.
Summary: I've had this mouse for about four years or so and I love it. The battery life is great, it's responsive, and it feels right. The biggest problem with it is that auto on/off feature when you remove/stow the USB transceiver. After a few years it's gotten to where a slight bump of the mouse with the transceiver stowed away will trigger the auto on/off repeatedly and typically leave it on. All this switching and on time drains the battery.
Summary: Logitech V450 Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks (Red) I've had four of these. Two for myself and two for grandchildren. I liked the first mouse so much, that I got the granchildren the same mouse in their favorite colors. This is actually my favorite nano mouse....then the first one lost speed and accuracy after 3 months and was useless in my favorite online game. I bought the same mouse to replace it and for three months loved it. Then it failed.
Summary: I had two v450 mice in use on different systems, but after about 18 months the red one started misbehaving by registering a double-click about 2/3 of the times I left-clicked. There's no service or support or FAQ on the Logitech web site addressing this, but there are many citations on various forums, none of which offered a satisfactory solution.
Summary: I use a notebook mouse all day for work. The mouse works with two batteries and it is larger than other Logitech mice such as the V220. I prefer a small mouse since it is more comfortable to use all day. Precision is also not very good even though it is a laser mouse. So I am not terribly excited about it.
It worked great with my laptop but...you can't use any other types of batteries besides Alkali

Summary: I bought this mouse at a computer shop near my school back in September 2010 after my laptop's mouse pad gave me some trouble (and it still is--still haven't gotten around to get it looked at and cleaned up). I pluggled in the micro-receiver, and voila, my Windows 7 OS instantly recognizes it. I used it about 90% of the time since I bought it.
Good mouse if you don't use the middle click button.

Summary: On my MacBook Pro, the mouse tracking feels a little jittery compared to my corded optical mouse, even with the tracking speed set to the middle speed. Here's why I switched back to my corded Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical : 1. The wheel has to be forcefully clicked to use the middle button. This is a major usability problem for me.
Summary: I have two of these V450 nano mice, and they look and work great IF you have them on the right surface. Mine work very poorly if I use anything but a mousepad. The laser will not read a normal table, a piece of black paper, or hardly any surface. They WILL read, but very sporatic. Then I bought a Kensington nano notebook laser mouse, and they are MUCH better.
Summary: Can't program the center button to go back a page. That's a huge inconvenience. Might be too small for larger hands. Had to send the first one back because it wouldn't work. Wish I had just returned it for a different one.
