Doesn't deserve to be called wireless, horrible software
on 2 May 2012
Had nothing but trouble with this mouse since day 1.
1) The battery life appears to be random. It can stop responding at any time for no obvious reason, even after being on the charging dock for a full night. I can always plug the cable in, but that seriously defeats the concept of wireless.
2) Software, several iteration of it that I've had the pleasure to use, is pretty bad. Each time you launch it - the mouse freezes for about 15 seconds while the software is "Reading the settings". Not even writing, just reading them. Every time you assign a key or a macro, you need to wait the 15 or so seconds again, while it writes the settings into the mouse, before you can try it out. This happens regardless of whether you're wired or not.
3) Setting up game profiles just didn't work for me. Maybe I'm an idiot and missed something obvious, but I couldn't get the right profile to switch on at the right time and to actually work. It seemed to be mixing up which sensitivity settings and macros belong to which profile.
4) Macros were a bit tricky. Couldn't get them to work initially, but it seems the problem was me failing to add manual delays between macro keys. Maybe this bit helps someone.
5) The worst thing about this mouse is that it seems to freeze and lose all the settings, macros and profiles about once a month on average for me. I can tell by all the lights on the docking station and the mouse itself lighting up, even though they're disabled. And then I get to deal with software again...
Technically, not the worst mouse I ever had. The Logitech MX Revolution, from the dodgy early batch that would lag and temporarily freeze the PC when moved, takes the crown.
