Rechargeable cordless laser mouse - the best of all worlds.
Multiple Scrolling Modes:
MX Revolution's unique MicroGear Scroll Wheel gives you a choice of two scrolling modes: Hyper-Fast and precision ratcheting. In Hyper-Fast mode, the wheel free-spins frictionlessly - great for speeding through long documents and web pages. With precision-ratcheting mode you get crisp, click-to-click rotation perfect for navigating lists, slides and image collections. Click the scroll-wheel to toggle between modes.
Clicking the thumb-wheel will bring up a list of all currently active application windows. Rotate the wheel to select your chosen window and click the thumb-wheel again to select it.*
Perform instant searches on any word or phrase. Highlight text in a document or web page and press the "Search" button on the mouse to instantly view results from your favourite search-engine.*
* Requires instalation of the SetPoint software that comes with the unit.
This mouse has been a great mouse to start with it fits right into your palm for a comfortable grip and is good for larger hands. It has approx 7 buttons that can be customised through the application program for multiple applications and even in some games. It even has the ability to tell you how much power it has in the app itself. With the help of the application I found that the mouse has almost become an extension of my hand to the computer.
A few things I didn't like about it was the little button just above the left and right mouse button that you always seem to click when you don't want to. Also the dongle being an old version, it just sticks out too far and easy to bump if you put it in the wrong place. As I run a Zboard keyboard having USB ports on the keyboard itself it's there my mouse dongle goes, this giving me a free port to use something else with. I find this isn't the best and broke it doing so. Using a USB Logitech unify dongle being a mini dongle and able to hold multiple devices would solve this.
The resolution is a very good at 800 DPI and being laser for the sensor type this gives you a bit more accuracy and also won't hurt your eyes when you check under the mouse. Being a rechargeable in-built battery means i don't need to waste my money buying batteries to keep replacing them, It even comes with the cradle to do so which just makes it so much better.
All in all, I love this mouse and even though i need to replace my dongle which I will when I have the spare money and time, I would get another one to replace it or a newer version of it.
