I have this mouse for my laptop because I don't like using the laptop touch pads. I need a mouse because I play a lot of games and the touch pad is not responsive enough and I do a lot of design work which I find easier when using a mouse. This mouse is good too because I have a laptop I don't want lots of wires about, this mouse is wireless and acts as a Bluetooth hub so you can connect all your Bluetooth devices to the hub which is really good. The mouse costs around £60-£70 pound which is not bad for a decent mouse, but it depends how much you're prepared to spend on a mouse, as you can get a basic cheap wired one for less than a tenner at some retail shops. For someone who needs a good responsive mouse that is wireless then you need to spend to get decent results. Logitech always make trusty computer products and this is why I choose to go for this product and not a different manufacture.
This mouse has lots of key new features that a standard mouse won't have, like side buttons (which can be used for back and forward buttons on web browsers), it has a cruise control and quick switch program selector features so you can switch from program to program with open windows. You can program the buttons to do whatever you want using the Logitech software which is really easy to use and can be followed using the manual. The mouse has been designed to be ergonomically friendly so it suited to your hand shape and the buttons are designed to be in reach without any strain. You get a 5 year manufacture guarantee so you can see how confident they are in thinking that his product is going to be reliable. The wireless hub acts as a charge station too so you can always keep the mouse fully charged which is good for someone like me who uses my laptop a lot and never has spare batteries about and you get 2 rechargeable batteries in the box with it. The mouse weighs about 962g which is not very heavy.
Overall I think his mouse is very good and suited to someone who uses their computer a lot and wants to save space with no wires and needs a good quick response. This mouse is really good for gaming as it has quick response and you can program the buttons to do different commands which makes gaming simpler. I would recommend this mouse to anyone who is going to use their computer and more important a mouse a lot. Another good point about this mouse is that its Bluetooth so works from a long range, for example I connect my laptop up to my computer to watch films ect and I can use the mouse from my bed.
I've been using this mouse for about a year now, and I've gotta say it's the most reliable mouse I've had. I suppose when you consider the cost, you'd hope it would be. Mine cost me about £65.
It has loads of useful features, such as back and forward buttons, the now standard scroll wheel, 2 extra scroll buttons and an extra button, which I've not found a use for yet! Every button is assignable using the Logitech software, which is really easy to use. Of course, the main bonus with this mouse is that it works via bluetooth, meaning you can be a long way away from the dock and still have a reliable signal. This is great if you've got a TV hooked up to your PC, even if it's in the next room. The cradle also acts as a bluetooth dongle, which is really useful.
The mouse is very nicely shaped, and fits into the right hand well, with all the buttons sensibly laid out so you don't go pressing things by mistake. The dock is nice too, it's a little silver and black affair with a shiney blue button on it for the bluetooth. The most handy part of the dock is that it's got lights to tell you when your capslock, numlock and scroll lock are on.
As for actually using the mouse, it's as you'd expect, really smooth, especially for a cordless mouse. It's optically controlled, and very accurate. The only downside is that if you've not used the mouse for a few minutes, there is sometimes a split second lag while it fires up again. I think this is a battery saving system, and it doesn't really bother me. One thing that does bother me though is when you take it from the cradle, it takes sometimes around 3-5 seconds to start responding to movement.
The good news is that the battery seems to last for ages, and so you only really need to charge it at night (it'll charge while the PC is off, another handy feature). I've never replaced the batteries in mine yet, so it really seems to conserve them well.
While the PC is off the cradle no longer has all the lights on, so it's bearable in a bedroom. Once the mouse is charging, it does however have a green LED that flashes and can get annoying at night. This does go out once the mouse is charged though.
Overall, I'd say it's a great quality product. Mine's taken a battering and always seems to live to tell the tail. Would I buy another? Yep!
