Logitech V500 Cordless Notebook Mouse
5 August 2005
Excerpt: As a regular traveler, I’m constantly looking for new and innovative ways to carry fewer items in my possession without leaving the essentials at the office. I’ve never been too keen on so called laptop micro mice. They simply have been too small for my hand and too uncomfortable over extended periods of time. Plus, their super short cords are neither durable nor usable when back at my real desktop.
Excerpt: Logitech, a well known leader in the realm of computer devices, has expanded their already large line of wireless notebook mice to include the high-class V500. The V500 comes packed full of new features like an expandable chassis, a touch-sensitive solid state scrolling panel, and 2.4 GHz wireless technology. Coupled with a smooth look and compact body this mouse looks to mean business.

We like that the USB RF receiver stows inside the mouse when not in use and that customization software is included, but the mouse isn't all that comfortable to hold.
Pros: Has a four-way touch-sensitive scroll panel instead of a wheel. Works wirelessly with a 2.4-GHz RF connection. Receiver stores inside mouse when not in use. Mouse folds flat for easy carrying and turns off automatically when folded shut. Includes a soft carrying case and customization software. Powered by two included triple-A batteries.
Cons: Raised design isn't comfortable, since it doesn't rise up far enough to rest the hand on. No way to tell when batteries are running low.
