Logitech VX - My MouseFor a while I have been using the Apple Mighty Mouse, but it was working against me. After a few months of use, I had to constantly (several times a day) clean the little scroll ball, because it got dirty and would scroll. So I gave up on the cool looking, simplistic mouse for a more functional and sturdy one.

I bought the Logitech VX Revolution and after owning it for a couple months, I can say, I love it. Of course, like any new mouse, it took a couple weeks to get used to. But the features and durability rocks.

I am able to configure the dozens of buttons on this mouse on a per application basis. I actually just set them all to do the same thing for all applications. My most favorite features outside of the scroll wheel working are:

  • Side buttons that allow me to use it to go forward or back in my browser – huge time saver
  • Find button that I programmed to bring up dashboard
  • Pressing the scroll wheel, does Expose on my Mac
  • Left and right scrolling is neat in Photoshop
  • Zoom buttons are nice
  • Wireless is nice, no cords to trip over

I use a mouse all day, and for it to work against me and not with me was no longer an option. I am very happy I made the switch. This is a great mouse, I highly recommend it. Also check out the MX, if you are very feature happy.

    I need to get one. This is the second review that I’ve read where the new owner was blown away by the thing. I just need to sneak it in the house somehow or the wife freak out at the price tag.

    I had a Logitech MX1000 which never worked correctly (no accuracy) and I finally had the desire to contact Logitech for support. They told me that they’ll send me a replacement but that the MX1000 was no longer being made. I scored myself a MX Revolution (and I still have the broken MX1000 — they told me they didn’t want it back … now only if I could fix it).

    I’m more of a laptop (touchpad) user than a desktop user, so I actually haven’t quite used the mouse heavily, but the reviews are positive and my initial impressions are also good. The only downside I notice is that I use a KVM switch for my multiple desktops (besides the laptops I own). The MX Revolution (and probably the VX as well) is not compatible with my KVM switch. The MX1000 was. I’m assuming it’s because of that wireless USB plugin thingy.
