Disadvantages: the latest software isn`t as good as previous versions
The Logitech MX Revolution mouse is an amazing mouse.
I use my computer for work and for gaming, so I was looking for a decent wireless mouse, that was functional and looked good.
I saw this mouse and fell in love, I just loved the way it looked, I was pretty much sold, before i'd even looked at any of its features.
The mouse fits snug in the had, and is ergonomically designed, it features the usual left and right mouse buttons, as well as 9 other buttons that are fully customisable. And when I say customisable, I mean it. With the setpoint software provided, you can set up individual program/game profiles, so you can have the mouse buttons set up in any configuration desired. This is an extremely handy feature, especially for the gamers out there.
It also features a smart scroll. The plain old scroll wheel gets reworked for Revolution duty with two modes. The first mode is the standard ratcheting mode we are all used to. The second scroll mode is a simple change that makes a huge difference in daily use by allowing the wheel to freely spin. The mouse can also be set to change automatically, this means if you are scrolling down a page of text for example, in a click, click fashion with the wheel, if you spin the wheel, the gear system will kick in and the mouse will switch into free scroll, then when the wheel is stopped, it automatically reverts back. Very handy for long web pages and documents.
Being wireless, people sometimes tend to steer clear due to rumours of unresponsiveness, but I can say from my own experience, I have had no issues with my mouse not responding, and i've had it a while now, when my hand moves, my cursor moves, when I click, it clicks, I see no difference in response between this and a wired mouse.
You get a nice docking charger with the mouse, and a tiny usb receiver to plug into a usb socket in your computer. The battery lasts pretty good too, and as you have an LED battery indicator on the actual mouse itself, you should never be caught out of juice.
This is a good buy, but shop around you should be able to pick one up for about £30-£40.
Summary: This is a very good mouse for all computer users, recommended
