Great Idea - questionable execution

YSC, Amazon
26 April 2007
  • Summary: The distinguishing feature of this mouse is the heavy metallic flywheel for scrolling. You can set it to free rotation (without clicks) mode where it will scroll on like a gyroscope flywheel, or the old standard clicky mode. As for the rest, such as shape and materials, are not entirely new from Logitech. Let's try to break it down here: Pros: - The wheel is actually quite useful in free-wheeling mode once you get used to it.

BEWARE: VX Revolution CLM4N is NOT DURABLE

Douglas P. Hartley, Amazon
24 April 2007
  • Summary: I really like this mouse, it's an excellent device on so many levels, but it is NOT DURABLE as a portable device ought to be. On separate occasions, I have had two of these mice experience a SINGLE, minor drop (3') onto carpet, and they each no longer work. So, if you're a professional who has to carry your mouse around meeting to meeting on campus and you have any potential of dropping it, be prepared for it to be a resident of the gadget graveyard.

Great mouse, flawed software (for Mac OS X)

Firas Alragom, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the size of the mouse and the shape of it which makes it really comfortable to use. The free spinning wheel is great for scrolling through documents although it makes middle clicking a little difficult. The zoom button is almost useless though, as you have to push/pull really hard for it to respond. Similarly the search button isn't positioned well which makes me forget it's even there most of the time.

Need to download software

RL Hampshire, Amazon
28 January 2010
  • Summary: Just received the mouse and tried to install the software 'SetPoint 4.0' on my laptop which has Windows 7. Got the message 'not compatible with this computer' and therefore had to go on logitech's website to get version 4.8. Otherwise can't really comment yet. Watch this space.

Logitech VX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse

mystik, Ciao
30 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Look and feel are amazing, the USB receiver slots into the mouse turning it on and off which is cool. Choice of smooth or ratchet scroll wheel which is nice, scroll wheel tilts left and right as buttons, and pushes in as a button but I find this really hard to use. Zoom in and out toggle and back and forward buttons, all configurable. Small-ish but fine for large hands I feel. Massie teflon feet glide so well.
  • Pros: Size, build, shape, number of controls, battery life
  • Cons: Signal strength as a media centre mouse

Good product

  • Excerpt: I've used both MS and Logitech mice before, very different feels, at home i had a basic MS optical mouse which i was fairly satisfied with, but ive also used a friend's Logitech MX518 which does feels even better. Since i have a laptop i thought i'd replace my mouse with a small wireless one and go for logitech this time. I got mine before the nano was released.
  • Pros: Small, works well, very good looking, runs on only 1x AA battery
  • Cons: Not great for big hands, a bit too much lag for games, not terrible though

Not steady

cheryl, Amazon
18 April 2008
  • Summary: After reading all the reviews, i decided to buy this mouse. It lagged when i first started to use it, the worst part is, estimation time length for the battery is 120 days, but it dropped 5 days in just 1 DAY.....

Good for normal use but poor for gaming.

K. Wong "kennyhkw", Amazon
10 February 2008
  • Summary: Great mouse if u never play games. Does everything u need and has a bit of quality along with it. Slightly smaller than a full size mouse so good if ur hands aren't very big. All the buttons feel good and hav positive clicks. Scroll wheel can b clicky or free wheeling. On Windows XP it works fine without the software, tho the zoom button doesn't work til the software is installed but i never needed them in the 2 weeks i owned it.

  • Summary: Great mouse but see above. Happens on a random basis. Well documented on Mac forums - wish I'd checked first!
