I purchased this mouse because of the trouble i was having with my Nisis EasyPen G3 digital graphic tablet. The problem, was that the mouse would flicker and it became very annoying trying to click on a icon in the system tray. This new mouse which only cost me £23 is absolutely brilliant. It looks cool, works without any problems at all, ad even has a WebWheel. You can also change which buttons do what in windows, even the WebWheel. Unless I really have to, I am going to stick with this
little beauty, because I think it is great.
This is one of the best products you can add to your computer system, the Logitech cordless wheel mouse. The strong points are no cord, Logitech quality and probably the best mouse company any where. Easy to hook up, just plug the corded receiver into the same serial port as the old mouse. Keep the receiver 8 inches away from the computer, I have mine hidden on a shelf. You can use the cordless mouse about 6 feet from the receiver. If you have never had a mouse with a scroll button, you have been missing out on the best item to be put on the mouse. Now you have to drag your mouse up and down the screen when you need to scroll your pages, with the scroll mouse, just roll the button in the center and you do not have to move the mouse any more. Nice software comes with it so you can program the buttons to your commands. I use the scroll button to BACK on the internet instead of moving it to the Back button to click on. There a lot of commands you can program it to do. The main draw back is, I use it several hours every day and I have to put 2 new AAA batteries in it about every 2 months. Even with the one draw back, I can not live without my Logitech cordless wheel mouse. I recommend everyone to get one.
My Dad bought me a new mouse for my computer as a thank-you present, and I could not be happier with what he chose. I spend allot of time on the computer doing assignments, and ofcourse surfing the web. My old mouse was very annoying and I wanted a change, so when I got the Logitech as a present I was quite impressed with the choice. The receiver plugs into a PS/2 port and can be moved away for convenience so it does not get in your way. You need batteries, but mine where included when I got mine my mouse but they require 2 AA batteries, they usually last for quite along time about six months according to the instructions. And when the batteries are low you are given advance warning that the batteries need replacing. What impressed me about the mouse was how far it can work from, about 5-6 ft, which is far. At 6ft away it provides really good performance and is just as affective than if you were nearer. However if you have glasses or have problems with your eyes their may be that problem of not being able to see the screen from that far. It is stable looks good and in my view is well worth the extra money you have to pay for it. Believe me you will know the difference. It has also has other feature like you chose left or right hand control, and that comes in handy if you are left handed like me. Everything seems more controlled, you have the ability to determine how fast you control down the screen. If you press the middle button on the mouse it allows you to shortcut the options available to you, which of there is nine. You may not be aware that this mouse won an award for something, in a magazine and I won’t dispute that, I would give it one. I know that they now sell a cordless keyboard as well as the mouse but for the time being atleast I think I will stick to a cordless mouse. Finally I would just like to say thank-you to my Dad for buying me this. I think of you every time I use it.
I've just bought one of the Logitech cordless wheel mice and so far I'm very impressed. The problem with my previous one was due to a small desktop I was forever getting caught up in the cord. This mouse has to be the answer, it comes in two parts the mouse which takes 2 AAA batteries and the reciever unit. The reciever plugs into the ps2 port and can then be moved out of the way. The mouse can operate from up to 6 ft away. It has a good positive action, much better made than your average £4 mouse but then it should be at £30. The extra weight of the batteries isn't a problem, they give it stability and a better more positive feel on the mouse mat. There are a range of 9 options available through the software. You can change from left to right handed, the wheel gives the usual web scrolling abilities. Pressing the scrooling button and moving the mouse down once gives you the ability to automatically scroll down a document at a variable speed. This is great for the longer Dooyoo opinions ! The scroll can be altered to suit your reading speed. Not a cheap mouse but the higher price is justified by the quality and ease of use.
I've always been sceptical of cordless items but needed a new mouse and thought I would give the logitech range a go as they have come down in price and have had reasonable reviews in computer magazines. You do have to have a plug in on your ps2 connection and you do have to install batteries but other than that the instalation is smooth and easy to do. The mouse has a middle button which allows you to shortcut nine options within the application that you are using, this is all derived from a pop up menu an excellent shrtcut system. The wheel has a range of six feet, although its a bit difficult to see the screen from six feet and is available in three colours.
It all started when I looked back on the past 12 months and realised just how much it has cost me to keep replacing my mouse. It was usually the cord that that was worn and it was costing me a small fortune! About three months ago I went to a computer outlet to buy yet another mouse when I saw the Logitech cordless wheel mouse. A lot more expensive than the £7 to £10 that I have been paying. I weighed up the pros & cons and thought I might as well give it a try. Since then I haven’t looked back - it’s fantastic. No more cord problems and no more frustrating car rides across town, not to mention the cost in petrol. This mouse will work several feet from the computer so there is no leaning forward all the time. It can be placed in a position comfortable to you, and not how far you can stretch the cord from your computer. The software comes on CD-ROM, which is easy to install. Once installed, you can change the settings to suit your needs with ease. For example, it can be changed from right to left-handed use. There’s a scroll wheel for easy scrolling of your pages. It will work with Windows 95, 98, and Windows NT 4.0. The Logitech cordless mouse comes in two parts: The radio receiver – this doesn’t need batteries and plugs into your PS/2 mouse or serial port. You can also use this receiver with other Logitech cordless products. The mouse – this has a simple release on the cover to replace the two AAA batteries required. There’s no on /off switch on the mouse, it does all that automatically. The batteries are still OK after three months of constant use. There is an on screen battery indicator which will pop up to let you know when your batteries are getting low. Easy to understand instructions come in six different languages. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone!
