    A great purchase for the dollar

    Posted .

    The mouse has a sleek design that provides for a very comfortable feel and a series of buttons and scroll wheel. The scroll wheel can work as a click style or a flip style, or as they call it “Hyper fast Scrolling”. Using the software included with the mouse a user is able to set the mouse to either automatically switch settings or by pressing the wheel down switch manually. It took me a little bit of time to fine tune the automatic switch settings. The SetPoint software that comes with the mouse is helpful. With the software you are able to customize all of the buttons and wheels to work in different ways. This mouse is comfortable and customizable making working with windows an awesome experience.

    The Mouse Revolution

    Posted .

    The Logitech – MX Revolution is what the name of the product is: a revolution. Its sleek design provides for a very comfortable feel complemented with a myriad of buttons and scroll wheels…well one “flick” wheel and another scroll wheel that acts like two. To start this review with a bang lets talk about the “MicroGear” scroll wheel that lives between the left and the right button. This scroll wheel can work as a click style or a flip style, or as they call it “Hyper fast Scrolling”. Using the software included with the mouse a user is able to set the mouse to either automatically switch settings or by pressing the wheel down switch manually. This took me a little bit of time to fine tune the automatic switch settings. Using 3DS Max and Maya I need to have that middle button function as a middle button but for reviews purpose I decided to try out the manual functionality and I thought it worked well. Three additional buttons, excluding the standard left and right mouse buttons, are conveniently placed for easy access. Two are on the side of the mouse, default to Back and Forward for Internet Explorer and windows Explorer, and a search button is located just under the scroll wheel. All these buttons can be customized to fit your needs using the included drivers. The last “wheel” is, what I call, the flick wheel, being that it doesn’t fully rotate. This wheel is like ALT+Tab but much quicker. Doing a single “flick” of the wheel will bring up Logitech’s open applications window and you can point and click to the application you want to switch to or continue to flick the wheel to your desired application. To wrap the hardware up you have a very precise laser system and a very comfortable body that naturally fits your hand. The box comes with a recharge kit, ala a recharge base, and a small USB wireless receiver. The charge lasts a long time…I use this mouse for work and I only charge it during the weekends. The SetPoint software that comes with the mouse is decent. With the software you are able to customize all of the buttons and wheels to work in different ways, a very nice feature. As I stated earlier the SmartShift (auto switching the scroll wheel) takes a little bit of time to customize, if you’re finicky like I am, but you can get it to match your style. Pros: Everything but the price. This mouse is comfortable and customizable making working with windows or apple a very enjoyable experience. Cons: The price is high but “you get what you pay for”. I bought this mouse when it was first released and it was much more than $99.99. Another down side is the fact that it’s a very right handed mouse. $99.99 does feel a bit much to pony up for this mouse but its well worth it. Buying a nice mouse, keyboard and monitor can change any computer experience to a much better one and its always nice to pamper yourself in the process. A definite recommendation to everybody, but left handed people; 5 out of 5.

    Okay but way overpriced.

    Posted .

    I've had this mouse for over a week now, sadly it's been discharged twice in that weeks time, where as my regular battery mice, can be used for about 4 to 6 months before the batteries need changing. And this was my fear to buy this mouse, since the battery is not replaceable, once it dies, you have to basically throw away the mouse, there is no way to replace the internal battery. It's not ergonomic, people are confusing design for ergonomics. Just because it give you a place to rest your thumb does not make it ergonomic. If you really need an ergonomic mouse, try the Microsoft Natural 6000 laser mouse, that is ergonomic. The hyper scroll mouse wheel is amazing to say the least, no matter what type of document Im in, I can be at the bottom of that document with a small flick of my finger on the mouse wheel. It's astonishing how long the wheel will continue to roll if you let it, you can just feel it in the mouse body when holding it lightly that when the wheel is still turning. The custom search button is a nice novelty, I've used it about 2 times so far, both times to just start up a new browser window with my home page since my home page is also set to google. Honestly though I've tried it once by highlighting a phrase on a document and hit the search button and a new window pops up with the search results from whomever you chose as the search provider. The problem is the placement of that search icon, when you flick the mouse wheel to get through a long document you may find yourself hitting the search button at the same time, it's just bad placement of that button in my opinion. Im not sure who's hand this mouse is supposed to fit, but I've got large hands and it doesn't fit my hands. My right thumb should rest where the thumb scroll sheel is, however it doesn't come close to it, and I have to reposition my hand on the mouse so that I can use it. POINTLESS, option if you have to move your hand around to use the option. Back and forward buttons suffer the same problem, they are really not placed well. and I have to shift my hand to use them. I don't bother. Get YingYangs Internet Explorer mouse gestures and you can move back and forward web pages simply by holding down the right mouse button and moving the mouse to the left for backwards and right for forward. These two buttons are now mapped to the volume since I rarely have to adjust that. If you are into gaming, stop right here, because of the way the hyperscroll wheel has two modes, it's very clunky to have to hold down the middle mouse button in games such as wow or any games that require you to hold down the middle mouse button to change the camera view.

    Awesome mouse that's not made very well.

    Posted .

    First, let me say that I LOVE this mouse! If not for this fact, I would have given it 3 stars instead of 4. I've used it for about 4 months now and find the following to be true: It holds a charge really well as I use it at work and am on it at least 8-10 hours a day streight almost everyday. It's extremely comfortable in my hand. The buttons are nice and responsive and the tracking is precise. The functions are very convienient with being able to browse web pages with the short cut buttons and moving between different applications on the desktop really helps speed things up! However, there are some issues that need to be addressed: For a $100 mouse interface that is used as much as the keyboard, the finish is really cheap. The black finish on the right side of my mouse has mostly worn off to the point that it looks really bad. It appears to be some kind of silicone that was painted on. Felt nice to the touch initially but now that most of it is peeled, rubbed, and scratched off it it just looks REALLY bad. Also the buttons, while adding really nice features, are located on the mouse in places where I accidentally bump them when I grab the mouse. Ya kind of have to mount the mouse with your hand carefully or you can inadvertantly activate something. Not a big deal but can be irritating at times. Otherwise, it's a great mouse!

    Awesome mouse!

    Posted .

    I got this mouse to replace my old MX1000, which I loved. It was a great mouse, but this MX Revolution really takes it to the next level. It has an amazing scroll wheel that senses the type of document your in and adjusts automatically to your preferences. The side wheel is convenient shortcut to Windows Aero for switching documents or programs. The quick search, back and forward buttons also work nicely. The scroll wheel doubles a middle button which is programmable as many different features but I use it as an actual middle button which is essential if you use Autocad. It is well made and feels very comfortable to my hand. The only problem I have is the same reason I had to replace my old mouse, a non-replaceable battery. My old mouse lasted about four years before the rechargeable battery wouldn't hold a charge long enough to be functional. It would be a great improvement if the battery could be replaced to extend the life and value of this mouse. Overall it is an awesome mouse and I highly recommend it to anyone that wants a feature packed, customizable mouse.

    I love this mouse

    Posted .

    So yeah, not long after I puchased my notebook pc I needed a mouse... Long story short I found this. So I buy It... So far it still is awsome, I love it. The battery life is long enough to do what you do, ot only do i use this for business (web design/Flash) I'm also a PC gamer so it has to work. The software that comes with has settings to customize every button and has this accelerator thing that makes it go faster the longer you move it (this is perfect for the tanks in Battlefield 2... they turn so slow with a normal mouse). The mouse is still in great condition and I've had it for a long time. BUT, there are two things: The grip on the left side of the mouse wears off (exspecialy if you have long nails) but i consider it a good thing because sometimes my thumb would slip and hit the 2nd scroll wheel and mess things up... The other thing is pushing the scroll wheel side to side acts as a button, Its was a life saver in BF2 (literaly it it was the defibulator button lol...) but eventually it stoped work, I dont know if it got worn out or if I droped dropped it to many times lol. Anyway I would go for it, if you can afford it of couse don't buy anything out of your budget...

    Awsome... most of the time!

    Posted .

    I LOVE this mouse! I'm buying a second one for use at home, and a third one for my wife (not necessarily in that order)! I review LOTS of long documents at work. Scrolling through massive amounts of documentation using the wheel in free-spin mode increases productivity, and reduces the workload on my fingers tremendously! And clicking the wheel toggles click-by-click scrolling when needed. I've set-up the wheel so that tilting the wheel left or right tabs between documents (e.g. tabbed browsing in Firefox) - I don't have to put my coffee down to simulate CTRL-TAB! I also use the side button to simulate ALT-TAB. When working in SOME applications, the spinning mode works in a downward direction, but not up. Since this only happens in specific applications, I'd say it's a problem with the application, and not the mouse. When working with applications inside VMWare, the above problem is almost always present. So, I set the "default mode" for VMWare to click-by-click. IF free-spin happens to work, a simple click of the wheel puts me in free-spin mode.

    Great Mouse!

    Posted .

    So I dropped the bill on this mouse after trying many other optical and laser mouses. None of them quite fit the bill for me - incompatibilities with software, lame drivers, etc. So I decided to try the MX Revo and all I can say is WOW! PROS: First let me say I love the feel of this mouse. It just feels like it's built well. Some complain about the "looseness" of the scroll wheel - well that's because of the nature of the microgear mechanism. Personally it doesn't bother me and I actually like that it has a little give and in my opinion still feels like it's made well. Speaking of the Microgear scroll wheel you seriously have to use it to appreciate it. Now whenever I go to a different computer I REALLY miss my mouse. It makes scrolling even just an average website so much faster. I have had zero issues with the scroll wheel. Customizability. In two words: Awesome. Software. All the other mouses I tried none were even close to being this customizable. Microsoft Intellipoint was the closest but doesn't hold a candle in my opinion. I've got multiple keystrokes and such set up for my media player (Winamp) and different settings for Firefox, etc. I've seen reviews that complain about no middle-click (default is to change Microgear function) but you can set that in the software as well. CONS: Every once in a while (not even every day) my mouse suffers glitchy connection with it's usb receiver and I get jumpy movements. I think that my computer is doing something funky at the time. I haven't honestly tried to troubleshoot it because it has been very intermittent and not really too much of an issue. Also I've noticed that sometimes my program-specific settings (for scroll speed only) reset for Firefox. I don't know if this is because I occasionally use another mouse and turn the MX Revo off or if it is due to something else, but overall not a huge problem. Bottom line: Great mouse. If you spend a lot of time on the computer and want the program-specific customization I say go for it. The Microgear scroll wheel is what does it for me honestly. I could probably live without the second wheel on the side but it's nice with some programs (have it set for seek in my media player). p.s. - some complain of battery issues but I've had mine something like three weeks and have only had to charge once overnight. Oh, and I use my mouse about 8-10 hours a day. I just turn it off when I'm not using it and recharge at around 20-40% battery left.

    Excellent Mouse

    Posted .

    Had this mouse for a few days and I love it. Got it for my custom made PC. Set up is simple. Just plug it in and your good. Just download the software afterwards to get the customization options. I got used to this mouse pretty quick. The center scroll wheel is fast so you can easily fly through documents with out a problem. Just flip the wheel and let it fly. The search button is neat. Once you set it up with you're preferred search engine just highlight the word and the search button will open up a window with the matches. The thumb buttons are also nifty. The thumb wheel lets you use Windows Aero on the fly so you can easily flip through your open applications no problem. Then there's the back and forward thumb buttons for internet browsing. Pretty standard and simple. Makes web browsing a bit quicker. Overall, this mouse handles like a champ. It's very precise and it being wireless you got no problems with a cord getting in your way while moving the mouse around. And the big plus with this wireless mouse is that it's RECHARGEABLE. The battery life is very good after charging. Lasts for days with moderate use ( I use my computer for about a few hours each day). If you want a nice mouse with some good features then this is the one for you.

    Dont always be a follower...

    Posted .

    When I was interested in buying a new mouse I came to the website and read about the various mice and their product specifications and then finally the customer reviews. Well I know that this reivew is going to by hypocritical of my experience but it needs to be noted anyway. The reviews I read complained about various things among giving it the same amount of accolades but what stood out to me was the battery life. Its very important when buying wireless to not have to continue to shove battries in the product just so you can rely on using your computer and when you run out of battries your pretty much out of luck. So the review I read on this mouse that almost changed my mind stated that the battery life on the rechargable mouse last very short and this person was very disappointed which made me leary. This is a lot of money to spend on a mouse so you want to get what you paid for. When I went into bestbuy I couldn't get that out of my head and almost purchased something else but couldn't help but be attracted to all the features....so I decided to be a leader and not a follower and this is where the review gets contradictive. I decided not to listen to the reviews and I bought it anyway. WOW!! The battery has lasted over two weeks with normal computer usage without me even recharging it. Someone must have been either gaming 24/7 or they had....something different because it wasn't this mouse. The features are great!!! I can hit the back and forward button for the internet on the mouse and that is revolutionary to me...they hyper scroll wheel freaked me out at first with one small pull on it and the screen flew the the bottom faster then I thought imaginable with a single pull. Again WOW. I bought this mouse over 3 months ago and have been meaning to write this review and at the time I purchased it there was only like 10 reviews so it seems you are going to have a better amount of feedback then I did. But please know this...sometimes you have to be the one that makes the decision for yourself. The computer I also bought from Bestbuy was the same situation and my outlook on reviews are a little less....final now. I hope you gain a little more independece from my review and I hope you buy this mouse. Take the plunge and you won't be disappointed.

    Xcellent 4 gaming!!!

    Posted .

    For gaming,enter the utility and disable all the bells n whistles including game detection. click through each extra button on the list and set to keystroke. in the box that opens type a charactor(or two,,,). even the side scroll wheel can be independant. Then open your game and enter the options menu and bind the keys. Simple stuff. I like FPS games and my fav is ETQW. This mouse definatly gives the user an edge (IMO). Aside from m1 and m2 and the 1 top button, the scroll wheels are extremly handy. Dont forget the top wheel has side to side functions. quick switch from main weapon to grenade. The side scroll on mine zooms in and out of the mini map and push in is set to "fire flares". the side thumb buttons are set for stroyent to health and vise versa.12 commands and counting so far. I have thumb mashed this thing for countless hours (almost 2 yrs old now) and it still acts new. Its hit the floor quite a few times as well. It is the most compfortable mouse for my hand available. The batts last for days of gaming. You just have to remember to put it in the charger from time to time. It fits the charger just fine, just tilt it to the left a tad til it clicks and the lights start flashing. How hard is that? Its also great for work and internet with the above mentioned left alone. I use this mouse on multiple pc's. one for gaming. 1 for work ( CAD design ) and 1 for internet browsing. (I build them for fun and wound up with spares). The software that came with the mouse has been installed on all. KVM switch from 1 pc to another and the mouse is tuned just right for each application. No KVM? just pull the flash drive sized receiver from 1 pc and plug into the other. Only 1 pc? Enable GAME DETECTION and set it up that way. I just didnt have the need. I did in the past disable the AUTOMATIC UPDATE feature because it changed my settings back to default once. A new update was needed for the independent side scroll keystroke functions but the update didnt change my settings this time. Only gave me more access options. Go figure. I hope this helps readers get the most out of this mouse for gaming.

    For experts only

    Posted .

    I have had this mouse for almost 2 years. The durability was perfect for the first year. And for a mouse that is pretty good. The first thing that broke was the scroll button, didn't break 100% and was still useable. When you first get the mouse you can click the mouse to speed scroll or just let it tick stop. What broke was the tick stop, just could barely feel the scroll stop. To me wasn't a really big deal. If you don't really use your computer the mouse life should be ok, but I would suggest getting a cheaper mouse. I do online gameing and would have to charge almost everyday. After constant charging, I would have difficulty trying to get it to charge. I would have to put business cards to adjust the mouse's position to get it to work. All in all this is not a mouse for casual users. I loved this mouse.

    Pretty good mouse

    Posted .

    I bought this mouse on Best Buy's sale and it is a pretty good mouse. Its wireless, so you don't need to tug on the cable if you need some slack. The only problem I have though is since I use it for gaming as well, the mouse wheel can get pretty annoying at some times. Overall though it is a good mouse. Whether or not it is worth the usual price though is the question. I personally would say not really, but that is why it is wise to jump on the sale. A word of caution though, speaking as a tech guy, it is unwise to get this mouse if you are on wifi, or have other wireless devices within a 10-20 ft radius of the mouse/connector. Most wireless devices use a 2.4 Ghz connection so if you have the above, it risks causing the mouse to lose signal every so often. It hasn't happened to be, just a word of caution.

    Worth the money

    Posted .

    Me being a gamer/web designer/3d artist/2d artist, I find this mouse quite exceptional in all fields. I love how Logitech's SetPoint software allows me to customize settings per-application. If I want a forward flick on the thumbwheel to activate the sniper scope in my favorite first person shooter, no problem. If I want the forward/back button to control undo/redo in my graphics programs, it's just a few clicks. As for problems with the software... sometimes (and by sometimes, I mean fairly rarely) after waking my computer from sleep, the per-application customizations don't work, most annoying when I middle-click on a link on a web page only to shift scroll modes instead of opening my page in a new tab. In my frustrations I disabled the "Smart-Shift" setting, which leaves me with an empty feeling when I flick the scroll wheel to find it doesn't spin freely... but middle-click is an absolute must for me. Hopefully a future update will fix this. My only complaint about the physical design of the Revolution is the location of the search button behind the main scroll wheel; as I have a web browser open nearly all the time, I do not need a search button, and its location renders it useless for gaming functions... far too inaccessible. Sometimes I wish the battery would last longer, but I can't complain too much because it's rechargeable.

    Unquestionably the best mouse I've ever owned...

    Posted .

    I have a nasty habit of buying mice and keyboards simply because I have never found a great combination - specifically due to the mouse. I have been nothing but thrilled with the Logitech MX Revolution. I purchased as soon as it became available in the store and have never regretted it. All of the other mice I have given away to "friends" (read: people I don't like!) and have gone so far as to buy the portable VX model as well now which I use when away from my office. The mouse fits perfectly to the hand, not the other way around. The free-spin wheel mode is something that spreadsheet or database users will find extremely helpful. I can use the mouse for 18 hours straight and still show 2/3 battery life left. There are two downsides in my humble estimation: 1. You can't pair this mouse with an existing dongle. This is especially evident in that I have the very stubby VX dongle in my laptop, but I can't pair with that for the MX. Really hate that! 2. You can't pair this (for the same reason in the prior point) with an existing Logitech keyboard. I have seen recently that Logitech has just released a Revolution "combo" set that uses a paired mouse & keyboard. Why not release some utility which would allow mw to do the same with my existing equipment? Overall, thrilled with the mouse!

    Nothing Like It

    Posted .

    I wanted a separate mouse for both my Mac and my PC and I've been through several wired and wireless mouses through the past 5 years and none have been as good as the MX Revolution. I have used it with both Mac and PC and there is just no other mouse that fits better in my hand or has the same ease of use. For the current price at $39.99 on sale, it's pretty much a steal. The thing that sets it apart from most other mouse products besides the overall appeal and feel in your hand, you can set each individual button (9+ by my count) to do whatever you want. Open programs, close programs, go to links, key commands, etc. The Logitech Control Center is easy to follow with helping you do so too. My only concern is the battery life, I use the computer all day and by the end of the day the battery meter is generally low. If you use the mouse all day for 2 days straight the battery will die. But it comes with a convenient little dock to charge it with, no actual batteries needed. I just throw it in there when I go to bed and it's ready to go all day the next day. I had my first MX Revolution for 5+ years now, bought it refurbished, and now I have another for my other comp and find my friends agreeing with me and buying it as well.

    Great Mouse, 1 Complaint

    Posted .

    Now don't get me wrong, this is the best mouse i've ever used, but there are some flaws. For example i work with design software at my job. I bought this mouse because the other was just dying on me. I installed it, everything was fine until i opened the design program. You see, in the program i need the middle mouse button. This has the middle button go side-to-side, and the design software couldn't recognize it. Therefore I couldn't use with the software, until i finally figured out how to make it so one of the side buttons would control it. But still having some other middle mouse problems.

    Great Mouse if price isn't a concern.

    Posted .

    The MX Revolution is a premium mouse with a premium price. I wouldn't recommend getting one unless it's on sale. If you do get one however, you'll love it. The USB receiver is tiny and fits easily with other USB plugs beside it. The rechargeable battery and charging cradle is very convenient. The scrolling wheels and one-touch search button are very useful when surfing. The mouse holds a charge very well for a rechargeable mouse, even with heavy use. It also has a switch on the bottom to turn it on/off to save power. Very ergonomic and easy to use. Four stars, only because it's too expensive.

    Does its job well.

    Posted .

    Excellent mouse, one of the best available hands-down. Logitech puts terrific quality into their products, I knew I was going to be happy. The back/forward and search buttons are very convenient when web browsing, and I turned the horizontal scroll bar into the volume control. Now I don't even need the fancy touch buttons on my laptop, I can just use the mouse to alter the volume very quickly. There's a lot of options you can program the bttons to do, and they have special preset settings like "game mode" if you don't want to go through each button manually. However, I really don't think this mouse is worth $100; I'd say a better price would be $80. Once in a while it goes on sale for $90 I think, but it's still of phenomenal quality. The only thing I have a hard time getting used to is the middle button/scroll wheel. It's very loose, you can flick it with your finger and it will keep rolling like a bike tire raised off the ground. This makes it hard for me to scroll, because the scrolling on the screen is not as smooth as the wheel turns. But I bet there's some way to change that in the mouse settings, so it's not a big deal really. A BEST BUY FOR SURE.

    EVERYTHING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

    Posted .

    I absolutely love this mouse. This thing is packed with features and adjustable settings. I will skip adding to the features of this product as they are already described by other reviewers and the product description. What I did not read here was mention of durability. I've had this on my desk for well over six months and have heard this thing hit the floor at least a dozen (maybe two) times, picked it up like a pet checking it for injuries and to this day,,,not one scratch and it still works like new. Also - The battery life - I went on a two week vacation and then stayed an extra week forgetting to put it back on the charger. When I returned, I saw it sitting there after powering up the pc and thought,,,, better fire up another pc or find something else to do for an hr or two while it recharges. NO NEED !!! When I picked it up it showed full charge. One more thing- At first use I found the curser zipping accross the screen with minimal movement making it a little difficult to be precise but found fully adjustable settings in the software. The amount of customizable settings are astounding!!! OK, Perhaps I did repeat a thing or two, but who couldnt? Excellent purchase!!!
