      Good Mouse, Bad Price

      What I consider pluses for the Logitech Performance MX mouse. *Is rechargeable; Battery can be charged using an AC adapter (included) or USB cable (also included). If you find your mouse low on power it can be used while the USB cable is connected to USB port. *Fairly large; as a female with smaller hands I was concerned I may have a problem using it but after several days of use I have not encountered any difficulties. *Unifying; the “plug it in and forget about it” technology does make it easier to connect keyboards, mice, etc… however older devices may not be able to take advantage of this feature. *Back/Forward/Zoom; these are all present for those who have become accustom to their benefits. Personally I won’t buy a mouse unless it has back/forward buttons. *Thumb button; ranks as a very useful element. The default is application switcher but can be changed to suit your own needs. *Scrolling/Hyper; Located on the top of the mouse is a button used for typical scrolling or what Logitech refers to as Hyperfast scrolling. Pushing the button down enables you to view web pages, documents, etc… extremely fast. Nice feature however, programming the scroll wheel when pushed down activates auto scroll the only difference between the two; one you use your hand and the other you use your finger. And what I consider minuses; *The ads for this mouse show a glowing green light indicating your battery is charged. Unfortunately, these lights do not stay on. According to Logitech after a few seconds they go out to conserve battery power. Okay, I’m all for conserving power but now I must guess at the battery level. And yes there is a power on/off switch located on the bottom of the mouse but I can’t trust myself to remember to turn it off when I’m not using it. So to keep tabs on the power level I installed Logitech’s SetPoint software. At least this way when faced with the inevitable question; is it time for a charge I will know. *Zoom Button; is directly below the back/forward buttons. I have hit this button several times assuming it was the back button. Because I do not use the zoom button it will be necessary for me to learn how to adjust my thumb so this doesn’t continue to happen. *Cost Aside from the over inflated price tag and features I feel are overlapping, I do like the Logitech Performance MX mouse and hope it serves me as well as my last Logitech mouse did.

      Faulty hardware... your mileage may vary

      Posted

      There are batches of this mouse (confirmed from Logitech forums) that don't work properly in wireless mode. Basically, the mouse goes to sleep after 10 seconds of idle time. Then when you move it, nothing happens on the screen for about 3 seconds (frozen mouse pointer). This is very frustrating and makes the mouse virtually unusable. I curse the Logitech quality assurance department every time this happens, for letting these faulty mouses get to store shelves. A lot of people have complained about the same problem on the Logitech forums. Some were lucky, returned the mouse and get a new one which had this fixed... YMMV. Unfortunately, I'm outside my warranty and return window.. Upgrading firmware, device driver, etc is of no use... this appears to be a hardware issue. This problem does goes away if your mouse is hooked up directly through the USB charger cable (seems like a poorly designed and non-configurable power saving feature in wireless mode only). I now use this mouse in wired mode only. Now, any decent manufacturer would have identified faulty batches and proactively recalled them off store shelves. Or at least have their support personnel replace the mouse for free with a working one when they get complaints... but no, you're going to have a tough time explaining the problem to a Logitech rep on the phone and convincing him/her that it is indeed a hardware problem that warrants a complete mouse replacement. My advice, stay away from this mouse if there are other options. Or, if you do get it, test it within your return window as mentioned above and make sure you didn't get one of the faulty ones. Needless to say, my opinion of Logitech as a brand has gone down and I will opt for better quality brands when I have a choice.

      Feels like it was molded to fit my hand!

      I bought this mouse to replace a Logitech G700s wireless gaming mouse, and of all the Logitech mice I've ever owned (and there have been a LOT), this is the most comfortable in the hand of any I've had! As implied above, the shape of the mouse makes it feel as if it's been molded precisely to my hand. It travels smoothly over any surface I've tried it on, and the buttons don't get in the way like the multiple buttons on my G700s started seeming to do. The buttons here are customizable, and suit my needs perfectly, although the features may not entirely meet all of the needs of the hardcore gamer out there (which I'm not). The look of the mouse is sleek, modern, streamlined, and stylish. It looks good on my desktop, and goes well with my desktop's black accessories. Installation was annoying using the "Smart" download version of the SetPoint software - which is required for full access to and adjustment of the mouse's features. After repeated unsuccessful install attempts on my Windows 7x64 system, I looked online to find that others had reported the same issue and suggested downloading the full version of the software, depending on your OS's specs. Once I did that, the install was quick and problem-free. I've fully charged the mouse at this point, and am hoping that the claim of 3 weeks of functionality per charge proves to be true (I've only owned it for a few days). It got annoying at the end (before pitching it) finding that, even with it set to moderate usage power consumption, I was only getting a scant few hours of use from my G700s before having to recharge it. Logitech is my go-to company for all things peripheral, and this is yet another product that has proved worth every penny I've spent on it! Happy customer, yet again!

      Great mouse

      Wonderful mouse, only contoured/ergonomic mouse best buy had in the store. not quite as good/comfortably of a contour/fit as my old IBM mouse it replaced, but it makes up for that in other ways. It has a button that allows the scroll wheel to freewheel instead of being geared to only move the screen an irritatingly small amount at a time, so you can navigate anywhere on screen or in a document with ease, just remember that if you move the wheel too fast it wont stop on its own and u will have to stop it with a finger b4 it goes past your spot you want it to stop at or you will have to scroll back up again. it has built in zoom buttons and another button where your thumb rests that looks like its made to resize the current window but I haven't tried that one yet. unlike my old IBM mouse, this mouse is wireless, it comes with a "Logitech Unifying Adapter" that can recognize the mouse and several other devices(still don't know why it needs to recognize other devices yet) unfortunately it doesn't charge wirelessly but it can be charged by a wall outlet or USB port either/or. The charge also seems to hold for a minimum of 2-3 days up to a week or two depending on how much you use it. and there is an on/off switch underneath the mouse so you can turn it off when not using it so it doesn't keep using up its charge. it also has something called a "darkfield" sensor that seems to be able to track the mouse on any surface just as promised so that a mousepad isn't needed. only minor issue I sometimes have is when scroll wheel is freewheeling instead of being connected to a gear, if I tilt the mouse or the laptop desk accidentally my screen will move when I didn't want it to and sometimes the screen will move downwards by itself and I will move it back up only for it to move right back down and I will have to hold the scroll wheel still or keep moving it back up or lock it down to the gear to get screen to stay still. overall though its a wonderful product, a little pricy but worth it.

      I did a lot of mouse shopping to replace one that was starting to have trouble with the scroll wheel after many years. It is difficult to replace something to which you have grown so accustomed to the fit and feel. Other than the obvious stuff on the product description, here are my notes.. . PRO - I really like having the "thumb button" in the base, where you press down with the side of your thumb. My old mouse had that. It can be programmed to do things like be a mute button, or switch applications (default behavior), or whatever you need. This one also has a "Zoom" button on the side, but that can also be reprogrammed for any feature. I currently have it programmed to behave like the middle-mouse button, because then I never accidentally scroll a bit when I try to click the middle mouse button. It is rechargeable via the included USB cable. That's nice. A charge lasts quite a long time, too. I also like the movement. Very steady and predictable. CON (but also a PRO) - The curvature is really narrow for my thumb. It's more like it was made for a finger rather than a thumb. It was almost a deal-breaker. However, once I started to get used to it, and stopped trying to nestle my thumb all the way in, it wasn't too bad. Some people might think of it as a gentle hug. On the bright side, it makes it very easy to lift the mouse, such as when you are doing a multi-step movement to get your cursor all the way across two monitors, etc.

      Fantastic mouse! Works great for gaming!

      I bought two mice recently, the Razer Mamba and the Logitech Performance MX. I actually had no intention of buying the Logitech until I took the Razer mamba home and realized that it's large bulky charging dock also coupled as a transmitter! What is the point of developing a wireless mouse if the user is forced to attach a wired bulky charging station? For gaming the Mamba was clearly the better mouse, it was lighter, had higher DPI, more comfortable to use and it had <1ms lag time. The downside of course was it's bulky charger which made me go for the Logitech performance mx. The logitech mouse has 1500 dpi which for me is good enough and the design is fairly comfortable. The biggest problem I have with it is the weight and the small side buttons, they're difficult to reach at. It would be better if logitech got rid of the large thumb button and instead made the two side buttons bigger and added 2 DPI controls to the top of the mouse like their other mice. A slightly thinner profile would also be nice. The scroll wheel on the logitech is excellent, I like the fact that it offers a dual function between glide scrolling and click scrolling. As I mentioned, the micro transmitter is perfect for someone like me that uses a notebook and doesn't want to be tied down to a bulky charger like the Razer has. Until Razer offers a mamba with bluetooth or mini USB transmitter, I'd recommend the logitech performance mx to anyone that likes to use their notebook with a full sized mouse, especially for gaming.

      Bought this Performance MX mouse to replace my 2006 version of the Performance MX mouse about two months ago. During that interval, Logitech decided to omit all of the functions I mentioned in my "What's not so great" comments. Why? Not sure, but normally for budget reasons. My mouse, is a very, very, very fine mouse. With two kids in the yard, life isn't very hard because of it. With Darkfield Laser Tracking, it will track virtually anywhere - even over glass. Rechargeable battery is a nice touch - on/'off switch incorporated in mouse. Logitech Unifying technology permits multiple compatible wireless devices to be used via one receiver. No need for multiple USB receivers. Nice touch. The scrolling has a two -function button that can be depressed to initiate warp speed scrolling or much slower page/line by page/line scrolling. One clever feature allows you to view all open Windows on the same screen; you then may select the Window you wish to view. Very handy, I've found, when I have a lot of Windows open and need to recall what they are. So, I guess Logitech Giveth and Logitech Taketh away, when it comes to features, buttons, bells and whistles. Frankly, I found the omitted volume and mute controls much more useful. I only hope that this mouse is as indestructible as my previous mouse which literally has been dropped from Miami to Afghanistan and still survived; Until now. RIP Would be a 5 if it was Made in America.

      Performance is right! Also, fix for battery issue

      I bought my Performance Mouse MX after hearing about it on a podcast. I love the friction-less scroll wheel. It has a button right below the wheel that will turn this feature on and off. So you can move quickly to the bottom of a page, or slowly for reading. The mouse feels just right (for a right handed user anyway). It is also light, and works from pretty far away from the computer. I've never had a problem with wireless connectivity with any Logitech products. I even have a similar mouse working perfectly plug-n-play with my Linux Desktop at work. To be fair, I was frustrated with this mouse at first. As I noted, I have a similar mouse at work, that is not rechargeable. The non-rechargeable mouse and keyboard have yet to need replacement batteries, in over a year! This rechargeable was dying every other day. I called support, and was able to get right through to a technician. Many years in IT have taught me to be skeptical of some of the tricks they make you go through, but sometimes they work. I was told that I should try an odd sounding technique, and then give them a call back if it didn't work. So, I followed the instructions. "Remove the batteries from your mouse. With the batteries removed, press and hold both of the mouse buttons for approximately 15 seconds. This will drain all of the residual power stored in the mouse causing the mouse to be reset. Install new batteries in the mouse and try again. " It worked!!! I haven't had a single problem with battery life since! I almost never plug it in anymore. I use this mouse on my gaming rig, and since the fix, I've been completely satisfied with the performance and feel. I highly recommend this mouse.
