It's just okay

Summary: I can't speak on battery life, since I don't use it consistently enough to really drain the batteries. I've owned it since Q4 2008, and I've only changed them once or twice. Because I purchased it so long ago, mine has a slightly different (older) part number than the one Newegg is listing.
Pros: Compact without feeling cramped. Curvature feels ergonomic to the hand. Works reasonably well on most opaque surfaces. Left-and-right scroll wheel rocker is handy. Pretty sensitive; I have to turn the cursor tracking speed down when using it. Accepts standard AA batteries. The battery compartment...
Cons: That nice curvature does make it difficult to store in a travel bag. The scroll wheel is a little wobbly and it's action isn't very tight. The buttons feel ever so slightly mushy. As a whole, it has a "cheap feel" and it rattles and creaks when handling it. However, the most aggravating thing abo...
Summary: There is a small amount of lag that is annoying, but still usable. Also, the cursor occasionally jumps when there is no movement for several seconds. This happened on both my PC laptop as well as on my Macbook Pro.
Pros: Easy to setup. Stylish. Worked with my PC and Mac.
Cons: Lag. Occasionally erratic. Form is a little small for hand. Overly sensitive.
Summary: I have two of these mice now, and I'm wondering when the buttons will fail in the new one. You would think for close to $50.00 you would get premium buttons. Oh well...Good thing I can fix them.
Pros: Easy set up. very smooth fast tracking. Good ergonomics. Battery life is phenomenal. I mean I leave this mouse on all the time.
Cons: The only thing about this mouse is that the right and left buttons failed prematurely on one. Logitech's warranty assistance was not very easy to work with so I replaced the buttons in my mouse and all is well. I was an EE in a previous lifetime.
Summary: I would not recommend purchasing this mouse if you intend to use it more than a few feet away from your Bluetooth device. If you're using a laptop make sure to keep the lid open and upright since usually the antenna runs alongside the screen and I find it barely works if the screen is closed.
Pros: The mouse is attractive, and the finish is durable. Mine has gotten heavy use for the last eight months and it looks as good as the day I bought it with the exception of the bottom which has a reasonable appearance given the fact that spends its life sliding around, primarily on my knee. The Blue...
Cons: I also own and rf mouse made by Logitech and I am much happier with it. Although Bluetooth skips the USB dongle since it's integrated with my laptop, and it may be a more appropriate in an office environment with a lot of wireless equipment in close proximity, its performance is far inferior. Thi...
Summary: Unlike some users on here, I loved my mighty mouse that came with my iMac when I converted to Mac. It is now almost 2 years old and I have had minimal difficulty with the track ball - nothing that could not be fixed with a bit of patience.
Pros: - small - carrying case - OK tracking
Cons: I bought this mouse to use with my macbook. The clicking feels "cheap" and the movement across most surfaces felt "scrapey". I was just not happy with the overall performance. This was the second mouse I tried, (Microsoft was first). I used it for a week or so, and then gave up.
Summary: Currently looking for a new older Logitech bluetooth mouse.
Pros: Small, like its supposed to be. Just about comfortable. The older Logitech bluetooth laptop mouse was better. Good styling.
Cons: THE LASER IS OFFSET!!! Its not in the center of the mouse. If you use the mouse on the arm of an easy chair :) , your constantly repositioning the laser. The older Logitech bluetooth had the laser dead center of the mouse. The train button is small, and the once you press it, you have to turn the...
Pros: I really like the feel of this mouse. It hardly uses ANY battery. 3 click wheel mouse is nice.
Cons: I'm not sure if it's my bluetooth adapter or the mouse, but when I move my laptop away from the mouse and come back, it will not easily re-connect. Its also very sluggish and mouse movement is delayed SOMETIMES. Again, I'm not sure if it is my adapter (Zoom) or the mouse. But, my biggest complain...
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.
