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
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.
opaque and transparent surfaces.

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.

I am a pro software developer and this is probably the best mouse that I have used so far (if not faulty.. - see below).
It features excellent ergonomics, excellent movement precision, nice button feedback and build quality. It looks and feels professional. The heavy and solid, fully metal scrolling wheel allows you to easily and precisely scroll (thanks to its two functioning modes) in your source code or text pages.
1) The battery does n't last as long as I'd like to but problem solved with rechargeables.
2) Logitech seems to have done a *really bad choice* in the manufacturer of the micro-switches for the main mouse buttons (mine were E-Switch TS20100F070S), which suffer from the notorious double-click issue. You can search on Google about it.
Basically after a while of use the left or right mouse buttons may start double clicking even though you just single click. This is due to the bad quality of the underlying micro-switches.
I have bought of these 4 mice and the two of them proved faulty, breaking after 2-3 months of normal use. I fixed by ordering replacement micro-switches and doing some soldering work but this particular type of micro-switches that Logitech is using for this mouse are difficult to find even on e-bay! Most manufacturers such as Apple use Omron microswitches, which if Logitech was using here, would probably not suffer from that issue.
So beware, if you buy this -other than that amazing mouse-, make sure that you can return it for a replacement just in case you get a faulty model!
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.
I hope this has helped.
Logitech did replace the mouse under warranty, but that took time and in the meantime I didn't have a usable mouse for my laptop whilst travelling. I've ended-up selling the replacement mouse and going back to a much simpler (and more reliable) design of wireless 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.
