Pretty Nice Portable Mouse

Jonathan D., Newegg
23 December 2009
  • Summary: There were a lot of bells and whistles on the packaging and extras... I liked the extra docks, but the metal case thing was a bit excessive.
  • Pros: Very portable, good size and nano receiver, love the dock with my laptop and netbook. Weighted nicely. Got it at a very good price. Presumably long battery life.
  • Cons: I've had the wireless signal dropout on me. Only three buttons is a big turnoff for me, the third button is in a relatively awkward place too. Feels really cheap (mine already had a scratch when it was inside the box...), feels like the plastic will break at anytime. I've never been a fan of the ...

No real middle-click

Anonymous, Newegg
10 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought it mainly to use it with Mac OS X and Linux. Without a proper middle-click scroll wheel button, it is of no real use to me. That said, it is a very good mouse.
  • Pros: Good size, feels smooth and has a tiny receiver
  • Cons: Does not really have a middle click! There is an additional button just below the scroll wheel that is used for 'Expose' in mac but can be used as a middle-click button... Mac did not recognize the side scroll buttons until I installed the drivers software

Cheap build, lots of extras

Anonymous, Newegg
9 December 2009
  • Summary: Logitech is a good company but maybe they should have diverted some of the money from manufacturing these "extras" into manufacturing a sturdier mouse.
  • Pros: It works as advertised and comes with lots of extras. It has a little battery case for extra batteries and 3 clip-ons for easy storage. It also comes with a usb extension cord which one side is a nifty dock. USB transmitter is also very small.
  • Cons: Bigger than I expected. Nano receiver is small but the actual mouse isnt quite "nano." The extras are all pretty useless too. I would never use one of the storage hooks and for some reason they included 3. Also, a battery case?? Who uses that? Also seems to be somewhat cheaply built.

Better than expected, but still could be better

Michael T., Newegg
9 December 2009
  • Summary: Being as I got this on sale and it ended up being about 30 dollars cheaper than the VX, it was a steal. The VX's shape does look like it would be nicer, but the shape of this mouse hasn't turned out to be as much a disadvantage as I might have thought it would be.
  • Pros: **Perfect weight -- lighter and it wouldn't have the right "feel" to it (1 or 2 notebook mice I've tried are too light which results in what I can best describe as too little tactile sensation as you're moving the cursor around), and if it were heavier it might get left behind for adding too much...
  • Cons: The reason I took off an egg: the shape, and the lack of contours. The VX version of this mouse looks like it would be more comfortable to use. I have used contour-shaped mice before, and have found them a bit better than little rectangular box type shape that this one is. It also could use some ...

Good Mouse

Anonymous, Newegg
5 December 2009
  • Summary: Would recommend to all laptop users.
  • Pros: Small receiver, Good for laptop, Included "Hook" feature is nice. When you insert receiver into the mouse the mouse turns off. When you attach the mouse to "hook" sticked to your laptop then the mouse turns off as well.
  • Cons: No forward or back buttons. To remove battery and receiver you have to remove the whole of the bottom part(base) and it's kind of weak(cheap) plastic. Would have been better if there was just one opening to insert the batteries and the receiver.

Middle button sucks

Balazs S., Newegg
3 December 2009
  • Summary: Clicking the middle button (the scroll wheel) does not send anything to the computer. There is an another assignable middle button in an entirely impossible position - convenient only if you have chopped off half of your middle finger.
  • Pros: tiny receiver is great great precision, smooth operation, right weight finally a hand-openable clamshell
  • Cons: middle button middle button middle button too much junk in packaging

Tradeoffs

Si L., Newegg
26 November 2009
  • Summary: Bought it because coding with a touch pad gives me tender fingertips after an hour or so. This mouse isn't much better for anything that requires precision (heavy text editing, gaming).
  • Pros: Small but as heavy as my G5 w/o weights. It looks tall in the picture but it's pretty slender in real life. Tiny receiver, battery life reads 544 days Button for expose or whatever, comes in handy. Available software (download only) changes OS X mouse acceleration back to Windows, almost.
  • Cons: The middle button click now only switches between regular scroll and "hyper fast" scroll at the expense of a middle click. Would have been a deal breaker had I known ahead of time. Luckily it's not that much harder to ctrl + click to open as new tab or close tabs the old fashion way by clicking o...

Very good Mouse

Mike R., Newegg
23 November 2009
  • Summary: Stick on mouse hanger is actually a good idea. I thought I would throw them away but gave it a try and actually use the thing. It also turns off the mouse while on the hanger which is nice and saves battery. The mouse is nothing revolutionary but is a good solid mouse that works well.
  • Pros: Picked up in Windows 7 instantly. The device has decent range and good accuracy. It also has a very good size and weight. Nice that the tiny receiver can be stored inside the mouse. power button is a good feature and saves battery
  • Cons: I had to download Logitech software to install on Vista. Probably a Vista problem more than a Logitech one but though it was worth mentioning.

Solid Mouse, High Quality

Lewis M., Newegg
22 November 2009
  • Summary: 1)The mouse is pretty heavy. 2)The mouse would fit my hand a lot better if the back of it was built up higher. 3)Forward/Back button should be included for the usual selling price of this mouse.
  • Pros: 1)Quality craftsmanship 2)$20 after mail-in-rebate 3)Over 12 ft range 4)Hyper-scroll is fantastic 5)Very good packaging 6)Receiver dock built into mouse 8)So far it has been very precise 7)Comes with a lot of accessories
  • Cons: 1)Click-by-click scrolling seems to not function as well as other mice 2)Push-wheel function normally found in scroll mice located on button just behind the scroll wheel which is not convenient. Should have been placed on side of mouse instead 3)Receiver docking is inside bottom cover where the t...

Logitech V550 Nano

Nathaniel R., Newegg
19 January 2009
  • Summary: Overall, okay. Hopefully it will last for a while. I’ve always been pleased with Logitech products.
  • Pros: An okay wireless mouse. The application switcher button is nice. I changed it so that it runs my own application switcher (not the Logitech one, which I might add, is garbage). Feels mostly sturdy, also has good range. Batteries apparently will last for 547 days. We’ll see about that. I like that...
  • Cons: It is a little bit too small, but then again it is a notebook wireless mouse. I don't think I would use it for more than an hour or so. Hyper scrolling can be annoying. I’m used to the scroll wheels that click while turning, not spinning freely. I haven’t seen any real benefit with this feature, ...
