A month ago, I blogged about the Logitech MX mouse being on sale for $50 at Best Buy. Even then, that was a fantastic price for this awesome mouse but now, Future Shop is offering it for an even lower price tag of just $39.99 (reg. $69.99). As Future Shop ships orders over $25 for free, you’re also sure to get this mouse shipped for free as well.
Have you ever heard of a carrying pouch being included with a mouse? This is perhaps more common than I think but I have actually never heard of such a thing and yet, this one does! It also comes with 2 AA batteries and features the following specs:
- Darkfield laser tracking that can be used on almost any surface, including glass
- Compact & ergonomic design
- Hyper-fast scrolling
- 2.4GHz wireless
As far as reviews go, there are nearly 20 with an overall rating of 3.8/5 stars. Just the fact that there are nearly 20 reviews is a good indication of this mouse’s potential as being a good product. Certain reviewers have reported that this mouse’s button fall off but then there are plenty of other reviews claiming that this is the best mouse that they have ever owned.
So it’s a bit of a hit or miss perhaps, but here’s one review that might sway you. It’s somewhat lengthy, but if you’re in need of a new mouse and are considering this one, then it’s worth the read:
Pressing the middle wheel to change the “feel” is an INCREDIBLY useful feature if you’re scrolling through a lot of stuff. If you change it to smooth, the scroll speed goes 10 times faster, I use this a lot and LOVE it. As far as the little button behind the wheel being the middle mouse button, after 15 minutes of readjusting to the location you no longer realize where it is. The features and feel of the scroll wheel are worth the adjustment.
Works as promised on glass perfectly, overall construction and feel is top notch. Overall the best mouse I have ever used. Cannot comment on the receiver issues, as I’ve only had the mouse for a year and have no issues with it.
