I have always been a lover of Logitech, BUT

Summary: Something is wrong here.
Pros: In fairness I am using this device on my new HP laptop with Windows 7 Pro. It does do what it is supposed to to do when it it is connected and there lies the the problem.
Cons: Every time I turn of the machine the mouse turns of and when I boot the machine back up I have to go through a whole routine of starting the mouse again. this is not good and not up to Logitech's standards.
Summary: What is most annoying are the instructions that say to turn the mouse off when not in use to conserve battery life. There is even an on/off switch on the bottom. But none of that matters, they should remove the button and edit the instructions because you have no say in this.
Pros: Small, blue, works on many surfaces.
Cons: Turns off after a few minutes to conserve battery life. If you move it soon enough after it turns off it will wake up and you can begin using it again after a few second wait. If you wait to long to use it again after it has turned off like 10 minutes, you will need to go through the Bluetooth co...
Summary: As usual, newegg was great, no issue with newegg here, just a poor product from logitech.
Pros: Portable, lightweight, wireless.
Cons: As several other reviewers have noted, the left mouse button has a design flaw that makes this mouse unusable for me. I have RSI issues in my wrist so I need a "light touch" button. Unfortunately, the battery on the left side interfere with the contact on the left mouse button, making it so that ...
Summary: I went to a local Store and bught the same mouse so I could verify what was wrong since my laptop was new. It worked fine. I will use the replacement on another computer I plan to buy soon for one of my kids.
Pros: None. I own a lot of Logitech products and like them all so I will just assume this was a quirk.
Cons: Poor Quality control by Logitech, and return for replacement, only. Not fair.
Summary: Pointer jumps around all over the place, even moves in opposite direction of mouse movement. I tried it many surface types with no improvement. Updated the driver, no improvement. Finally gave up in disgust and purchased the Lenovo bluetooth mouse. This was the third Logitech bluetooth mouse for me.
Summary: I recently used a Logitech Bluetooth mouse that did not have these problems, but it was at a temp job and I forgot to note the model number.
Pros: Looks nice. Wheel can be moved sideways to scroll left to right, which is very handy.
Cons: Way too much delay and jitter. I guess to save battery life it shuts off after a few seconds, then when you move the mouse, the pointer stalls, then jumps unpredictably and far. Pointer moves with a slight, but perceptible jitter. I thought I'd get used to it, but no, so I'm going to ditch this m...
Summary: My experience with Logitech has been exemplary until I bought this device. I own a half dozen computers, all with Logitech mice that work very well. Too bad this one doesn't follow the family traits.
Pros: Very nice looking, good feel. Looks pretty on my desk. Good reminder to never go with Bluetooth devices again, if this is the result.
Cons: I bought it for use with a brand new Acer mini notebook and I cannot get it to work, except occassionally. Very frustrating. Apparently, there is some magic I haven't learned with Bluetooth. It seems as though the computer can not find the mouse, except on the fifth Tuesday of the month, or whate...
Summary: I bought this to use with a HTPC which is also used for gaming. The input lag on this mouse even when sitting a few feet from the dongle made it frustrating to use in Windows, and unusable in games. I would recommend against his mouse even for basic internet use.
Cons: The problem is....the v470 mouse goes into a sleep mode after 5 seconds of no movement.. When I read a little bit web page, type a little bit words, edit a little bit, the mouse go to sleep mode, and when I move, it is jump. This is not good thing because the aim is not predictable. I have tried ...
