‘twas the month before Christmas

‘twas the month before Christmas

And all through the house

There were two creatures stirring -

Just me and my mouse

 

As I opened the package

I noticed with glee

That the mouse could be freed

And set up easily

 

Five minutes or less

Was all that it took

To download the software,

Now let's have a look……

 

First off, this is an expensive mouse, so if you only use the computer to check e-mail and surf the occasional site, you really don't need to splurge on this, except of course if you're going for that professional look.

 

Next, if you're looking for portability and your laptop bag already fits your laptop rather snugly, you might want to choose a smaller mouse, as this Rubenesque babe will definitely need space to stow her curves.  I think it's better suited to a desktop machine.  If you like a smaller mouse for toting around the place, or if you have small hands, you may want to try the Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks instead.

 

Fit wise, it suits a medium to large hand pretty well, and the buttons are well placed for a right hander, except for the back and forward buttons which will need some thumb flexing practice before you can get used to it.

 

Feature wise, it has the same hyper-fast and precision scrolling options like some of the other Logitech models, except that now there's a separate button for choosing the settings.  The same scroll wheel can be used to move horizontally across documents (like big spreadsheets). You can also adjust the sensitivity using the plus and minus keys on the top left hand side of the mouse. 

 

There's also a cool "hidden" button within easy reach of your thumb that helps you to switch between application windows. With XP you get a rather boring pop up list of your open windows, but Vista makes it possible to have your windows shown in 3D view, and you can use your arrow keys or mouse to choose your next destination page.

 

Another plus for me is that it uses two regular AA batteries, and has an indicator light that turns red when you have but one week of battery life remaining.  I already have far too many chargers and cables and other thingies to be able to keep track of them all, and I really don't need another one to add to the pile.

 

Overall, this is a good mouse with features worthy of the price, but a bit on the large side. Recommended for right-handed professional desktop computer users.
