5.0 out of 5 stars Had it for a while, and very impressed., 10 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Logitech Cordless MouseMan Optical (Electronics)
I swore I would never buy another moouse until one came out that was both optical and cordless. Well, it happened, so I bought it, and £50 poorer off, I wandered happily home.
I've since had exactly zero problems with it. It installs well, comes with great additional software, and caused no clashes with any of the other pointing devices I have installed (graphics tablet, trackpad, keyboard nipple, regular mouse). All worked happily together. No noticeable impact on my (rather slow) system, and seemed fine for games playing, though I suspect real hardcore gamers will stick to cabled mice for a while yet.
The battery life is staggering. I've been using it on most sensible surfaces, including fairly dark ones. I have yet to find one it will NOT work on, though I suspect that both glass and completely black surfaces will reflect too little light to be detected (well, DUH!). It's on constantly (no switch on it), and shows no signs yet of failing.
Gripes? Well, since I use it with a laptop, it would be nice if it was smaller. I suspect it's too big to be used by kids, but then, who's going to spend fifty quid on a kid's mouse anyway?
It would also be nice if it was more ambidextrously shaped. I'm left-handed, and while I'm used to using a mouse right-handed, it is nice to swap around sometimes. Having no cable should make this easier, but the shape is just WRONG: it is NOT usable lefthanded (unless you have very funnyshaped hands).
Ability to recharge would have been nice, but given the battery life, I don't think it's necessary.
So in summary: best thing since sliced bread, unless your desk is black or glassy, you are completely lefthanded, or you are a child.

Note: this mouse still works, but this year, 8 years after I bought it, as I've lost the battery cover, I relegated it to the position of "backup mouse". As well as the battery cover, the mouse's feet had worn away, along with about 1mm of plastic from the bottom. It saw a LOT of use. Logitech are just GREAT mice. Expensive, though. But, if I'd bought a £10 mouse every year, I'd still be poorer off, so this mouse was well worth it. I've replaced it with a Microsoft mouse, and to be honest, the quality of the MS mouse is much lower: it's lighter, the wheel does that annoying thing where it flips up one notch if you so much as brush it, rather than being properly calibrated to the wheelclicks, etc. Back in the days of wheeled mice, MS were good: the best. Their balls were bigger and heavier than anyone else's. But it seems they've lost it. My next mouse will be a Logitech.
