fancy idea of solid state scroll panel, but it doesn't work well

Summary: I like new and good idea. But this solid state scroll panel thing is just a fancy idea which doesn't work very well. For vertical scrolling, you need to move your finger back and forth carefully, otherwise, you don't know whether you are scrolling up or down. This really takes away my concentration. Side scrolling is not always working. Because this is a small mouse, the 7 degree expendable chassis doesn't fit my hand, even though I have a small hand.
Summary: In comparison to all other mice I've worked with on the market, the V500 definitely wows in cool factor to date. But does it have both form and function? Absolutely not! This is not an easily pleased, girlie-man reviewer but a road warrior who lives and dies by traveling and working on a laptop daily. I don't compromise on my review, summarized here for your consideration. PROs: -Braggin' rights. Especially the price.
Summary: The touch sensitive wheel is a joke... not having the tactile feedback is a big disappointment for me. I like the size, but too flat/slim to provide ergonomics. I have to pinch the mouse in order to move it around and as a result, my fingers and wrist were hurting!! I ended up taking it back to OfficeDepot and got a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse for less than $30. It only uses 1 AA unlike logitech's 2 AAA(costly) and very much more comfortable. I forgot to mention...
