Product Description

Logitech MX Anywhere Mouse
The Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX
works on virtually any surface

The Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX works wherever you do. Thanks to Logitech Darkfield Laser Tracking, you'll get precise cursor control on virtually any surface, even glass tables (4 mm minimum thickness) where optical and standard laser mice fail. You can take it anywhere thanks to its compact size. The tiny Logitech Unifying receiver is small enough to leave in your notebook. Anywhere you go, you'll get things done more comfortably with its sculpted design. You get hyper-fast scrolling to fly through long documents and Web pages with a single spin of the scroll wheel. Plus thumb buttons let you go back and forth between Web pages with just a click.

Tiny Logitech Unifying receiver stays in your notebook.

When sitting at a desk or table, many people choose to add peripherals such as a notebook mouse and keyboard to their computing setup to make it more comfortable. But when it comes time to change locations (e.g. heading home from the office), these peripherals need to be unplugged and each of their USB receivers stored somewhere safe.

To solve this problem, Logitech introduced the Logitech® Unifying receiver – a tiny wireless receiver that’s so small it can stay plugged into a laptop at all times and can be paired with up to six compatible Logitech keyboards and mice. Logitech Unifying products are easily identified by the Unifying icon, which appears on the products themselves, as well as on the pre-paired, bundled receiver.

There's no need to unplug it when you move around, so there's less worry of it being broken or lost.

Shattering the glass barrier – A Technical Background
Logitech MX Anywhere Mouse
Comparison of Dark Field LASER tracking
against traditional LASER and LED systems

All optical and laser mice use irregularities in the work surface to track the direction and speed of your mouse. The more irregularities on the surface, the easier it is for the sensor to track your movements. But there just aren't enough irregularities on clear glass for your standard mouse to work.

Beginning in 2005, Logitech – the world’s leading manufacturer of computer mice – embarked on a multiyear research and development project to create a mouse that could overcome these limitations. After considering many options – including Doppler radar, UV imaging and interferometry techniques – Logitech® Darkfield Laser Tracking was developed.

Traditional microscopes – that use standard, or bright field, illumination – direct the light into the objective lens. But sometimes the tiny objects underneath the microscope lack contrast under normal illumination. For example, biologists often see this challenge when viewing small organisms in a liquid habitat; the contrast between the fluid and the organisms is not great enough for the microscope to detect.

To help scientists see objects that are very tiny and not sufficiently contrasted in the surface environment, dark field illumination was invented. Instead of collecting and focusing the light from points directly beneath the surface of the lens, dark field illumination blocks out the central area of light and only allows rays of light to enter the lens from an angle. If there are no objects beneath the microscope, the entire field will appear dark. But when the light hits a particle, it scatters the light into the lens at an angle. The resulting image has a dark background with bright objects on it, similar to a starry sky, and this is where the technique gets its name.

How Dark Field Illumination works on both
opaque and transparent surfaces.
Click here for a larger image

To achieve dark field illumination, Logitech mice with Darkfield Laser Tracking use two lasers to more effectively collect microscopic details of the tracking surface. When the mouse is used on a regular surface – such as a formica table or a piece of paper – the texture of the surface provides plenty of detail for the lasers to track and requires only one of the lasers to be used. But for high-gloss surfaces that don’t have enough details, such as a glass tabletop, the mouse sensor views the surface itself as black and, instead, tracks the dust and other residuals that appear on the surface. In this case, two lasers are used. The diagram to the left shows a visual representation of how dark field illumination works on both an opaque and a transparent surface.

Just as a scientist would use a dark field microscope in a lab, a Logitech mouse with Darkfield Laser Tracking illuminates the surface beneath the mouse at an angle, and collects and focuses that light back into the lens. Any small particles, such as dust or micro-scratches, are cast against a black background. Similar to the way that our eye sees the clear night sky, the mouse’s sensor sees the clean areas of glass as a dark background with bright dots – the dust. Then, the sensor interprets the movement of these dots to track exactly where you’ve moved the mouse. Diagram 5, above, provides a visual of this concept.

Because of its ability to detect the tiniest of particles, Darkfield Laser Tracking allows your mouse to track virtually anywhere. But because it requires some micro-details to work, it won’t work on a surface that’s perfectly clean and smooth. However, outside of scientific laboratories, such a surface is extremely rare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing mouse. 3 Aug 2010
By DF
REASON FOR BUYING A WIRELESS MOUSE: My laptop is my primary computer and the in-built track-pad / pointing-device is really not ergonomic / efficient enough for me for everyday use. I also wanted a mouse to use when presenting slides so didn't want it tethered.

REASON FOR SELECTING THIS MODEL: I already had a number of Logitech peripherals on different PCs that work brilliantly, so I decided to stick with the Logitech brand. I also have a Logitech Numeric Keypad (N305) on the laptop so the mouse was able to share the same unifying wireless receiver.

HOW DID IT WORK: Setup was really simple and it is, by far, the best mouse I have ever used. Battery life seems excellent.

WHAT IT'S LIKE: Standard mouse size. Solid (heavy enough but not too heavy) with good quality tactile buttons. Excellent ergonomic shape. Sharp finish and overall professional appearance.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT: Everything - but some particularly notable niceties include:
(1) The scroll wheel has two modes that can be toggled by simply pressing down on the wheel - 'freewheeling' to quickly spin to the start / end of a very long file, and 'notched' to step up or down in a more controlled manner.
(2) The left and right tilt of the scroll-wheel also makes horizontal scrolling (or character input positioning along a sentence) really simple.
(3) The Darkfield technology really does work on any surface - I have used it on; shiny desk / glass table / paper / upholstery / clothes.
(4) The Window selector button displays all of your open windows at once (as small panels) so you can quickly select the one you want to jump to.
(5) For normal use it uses 2 AA batteries, however if you are travelling with it and want to make it a little lighter, you can remove one of the batteries and it will still work.

WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT IT: Nothing.

SUMMARY: Brilliant.

I hope this has helped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Logitech MX 6 Feb 2010
I've bought this mouse to replace my Logitech VX Nano and I must say that it's a step closer to being the perfect mouse!

I do a lot of spreadsheet work, I surf a lot and I play games at a considereable amount too. After two weeks of using the Anywhere Mouse, I can say that it's worth your money. It's a premium item because of the design and the material.

The mouse feels natural on your hand as it is not as big as other Logitech mice (i.e. Marathon Mouse). I'd say the feel is very close to the VX Nano. I don't feel any pain in the wrist area nor in my hands even after using it continously for three hours.

The buttons are very responsive. Compared to the VX Nano, the forward and back buttons are located near the thumb and are easily operated now. This reduces effort on the index finger as I used to press the forward and back buttons on the VX Nano.

The small receiver is back but this time it's a Unifying Receiver which you can with other wireless Logitech devices that are compatible so you can free up your USB ports. The batteries last for three months similar to the VX Nano. Logitech Setpoint software is available for you to customise your cursor control and button presses.

The highlight and selling point of this mouse is the Darkfield technology which allows one to use the mouse on glass and other surfaces that laser mice have difficulty operating in. This is definitely a plus for those who work on glass tables. It performs well on gaming too.

I'd recommend this product if you have the budget because it's sturdy and has high value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with this mouse 6 Feb 2011
I bought a Microsoft 5000 bluetooth mouse for my laptop. It was cheap and nasty and after 3 days it stopped working. Returned it to Amazon for a no fuss refund (well done Amazon.) I looked at the Logitech bluetooth mouse but it had mixed reviews and I think the bluetooth technology is a bit flaky, so I went for this wireless mouse instead. The little receiver is left in the laptop all the time, it is no bother and I stil have 2 USB ports which is fine for me. The mouse is well built and works beautifully, even on my glass table. The applications button (opens mini versions of all open apps on the desktop for you to click on whichever you want) is excellent. The scrolling, choose click or faster non-click just by pressing on the wheel) is good, and the forward/backward thumb buttons are very useful. Rather that a flimsy on/off switch you turn this mouse off by flicking a cover across the laser. That too is beautifully engineered. This mouse is NOT cheap but I feel it is worth it and I unreservedly reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best mouse ever! 2 Feb 2011

I have replaced my 4 years old logitech V500 mouse and it was best choice I could make.
The only thing I'll have to get use to is the wheel because V500 had sensors instead.
This mouse is simply incredible...works everywhere with super precision.
Build quality is superb...Logitech.

Since only Logitech to my knowledge, advertised a laser mouse which works on glass I was slightly sceptical about its capability. I was pleased to find that it works perfectly in this respect. If the glass is absolutely spotless it struggles for a few seconds until there is a tiny amount of grease/dirt from yout hand in the area, then it is faultless. For those seeking a minimalist effect on a black glass desk like mine, be ready for a slightly grubby area from your hand which you didn't notice with a mat!

Not the most attractive to look at but feels ok in your hand and ok to grip. The mouse is solid and the freewheeling scroll saves me loads of time. Sideways scroll is usefull too.
No connection problems, tiny usb reciver works well in pc and in a usb powered Belkin KVM switch
Battery life is holding up well, dropped quickly over the first 2-3 weeks but now more slowly showing 67 days left with 1 month gone.

The first mouse I had did not have the browser forward/back buttons working - I was not sure if software problem but logitech sent a replacement in 2 days. The forward/back buttons work fine on the replacement but I find the buttons are too far back on the side of the mouse, you have to change your grip which is inconvenient or rock your thumb awkwardly.

I usually avoid installing "yet more software" but the added features SetPoint software hasn't crashed anything (Windows xp/ Windows Server 2008) or hogged resources or constantly checked for upgrades and is worth it for the instant helicopter view of all windows.

Conclusion
Well made, solid, reliable on glass (and other surfaces), not too big. works first time with KVM switch. Prob worth hihh cost if the batts do last 3 months (I use constantly all day long)
