Logitech T400 Zone Touch Mouse - Red

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly with Linux and battery life is amazing!, 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really attractive looking mouse and it works really well. It feels nice in the hand and the scrolling is nice and smooth (though you'll want to make sure you have smooth scrolling enabled in your browser). I've tested it with update to date releases of Arch Linux, Fedora and Ubuntu (13.10) and all the buttons and gestures are fully supported out of the box with no software installation required.

The only thing that you can't make full use of on Linux without installing software is the ability to share one Logitech Unifying Receiver for multiple input devices. Fortunately there is a tool called Solaar which you can download. This will not only allow you to pair and unpair devices with the receiver but also lets you view the mouse battery level. The mouse naturally comes paired already with its own receiver so you may not need to / want to do this anyway.

Finally I feel I must comment on the battery life which is amazing! I've had this since the very start of July and have used it daily since (for several hours a day usually) and have yet to change the batteries (I am still using the ones it came with) and it has only just reported to have dropped to 80% after pretty much 5 months worth of daily use. I don't think I've ever had a mouse last this long. Very impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid cable that does the job well, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These cables feel substantial and well made and so should be pretty durable but most importantly: the sound quality is faultless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They look like they would be okay but as soon as you plug in the second input the sound from either becomes extremely quiet and slightly muffled. They'll pass sound through with only one plug connected just fine but that would be completely pointless given the whole point is to be able to connect two plugs into one jack. Both the of two I received (one for left and one for right) do this so I don't think it is an isolated fault. Avoid!
