Not the best mouse for the money
27 March 2010
Summary: I have two of these mice and both are being used on Mac Mini's. One exhibits problems with disconnecting intermittently. The other has poor tracking abilities. Both have been tried with and without the Logitech software. I can definitely say some of this has to do with Bluetooth and some has to do with the way Apple does tracking acceleration. Its much different then Microsoft does. I find myself getting frustrated with the acceleration of the cursor at times.
Excerpt: If you want to change the function of each button, you can download the software, they available both in Windows and Mac OSX. And like another laser technology mouse, This mouse doesnt work well on glossy surfaces. In my opinion, if you have more money, it will be better for you to buy Logitech VX Nano. The small receiver of VX Nano wont be noticeable. And the most important thing, the VX Nano doesn’t has a lag between sleep and wake up period when the mouse is disuse.
Summary: Works great when I can get my laptop to recognize it. Connection will drop unexpectedly. When it does drop, I have to restart my laptop, use the Logitech util to find my mouse again. De-bugging info: No interference from other blue tooth devices. Not related to battery strength. It is nowhere near the plug and forget functionality of my USB wireless mice.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
Summary: Bought this to work with my Sony laptop and it works OK with windows installation. I can't give it a better rating because I don't get the full andvantages due to the fact that it would not install from the supplied software. I contacted Logitech who were as helpfull as a bucket with holes, they reckoned it was my computer's fault. Sony denied this so I gave up and just use it a basic installation.
Excerpt: Lightweight, fantastic battery life. I used it all the time as well. Looks fantastic Laggy when gaming. I can attribute several losses to this mouse while playing my favorite approach games, which depend heavily on mouse movement. Also to a lesser extent FPS' , but nevertheless.
Excerpt: Little, like its supposed to be. Just about comfy. The older Logitech bluetooth laptop mouse was better. Good styling. THE LASER IS OFFSET!!! Its not in the center of the mouse. If you use the mouse on the arm of an simple chair :) , your continuously repositioning the laser. The older Logitech bluetooth had the laser dead center of the mouse. The train button is modest, and the as soon as you press it, you have to turn the mouse over to see if it is in the correct mode.
Excerpt: Easy to setup. Fashionable. Worked with my Pc and Mac. Lag. Sometimes erratic. Form is a small modest for hand. Overly sensitive. There is a smaller quantity of lag that is annoying, but nevertheless usable. Also, the cursor sometimes jumps when there is no movement for a number of seconds. This happened on each my Pc laptop as properly as on my Macbook Pro.
Excerpt: Blue tooth connectivity. Laser tracking functions on most any surface. Comfy. Battery life has been fantastic. I have two of these mice, and the newer one failed with out reason. Reliability appears to be an concern with this mouse. Considering that I didn't keep the origional packaging, it looks like an RMA is not an option. I purchased 2 of these mice; 1 @ 5 mos ago, and a single 5 weeks ago.
