    Great mouse, BUT...

    • Written by from Pittsburg

    i love this mouse. its comfortable, lots of customization, love how it works on any surface. One of the reasons i went with this mouse was its ability to assign the thumb button to bring up the expose. I HATE that after about maybe a year, the left click has begun to fail to click or gives me an unwanted double click; this happens more than half of the time. I read that this is a common occurrence with Logitech mice. For $100, i expect this mouse to at least last me around 2-3 years! I have since gone back to the apple mouse and been shopping around since. Great mouse but the durability extremely disappointed me.

    Be Weary Of This Mouse On OSX

    • Written by from Indianola

    I got this mouse today and have been messing with it for a few hours and let me just say that when I bought this mouse I had very VERY high expectations. Right when I opened the box I was very please with the button layout and how the mouse felt. I love the free scroll button on the top and the switch to the regular scrolling button.

    BUT! DO NOT INSTALL THE OSX DRIVERS FROM LOGITECH!!

    The Logitech drivers conflict with the existing OSX mouse settings. Meaning, if I have my default OSX scrolling speed set to the 4th tick, the Logitech driver multiplies this by whatever speed it's set to. That's what they mean by "hyper speed scrolling". Sure, fine if you're working in Excel, but it totally breaks Minecraft if you use the scroll wheel for selecting items in your hot bar. I'd imagine this is the same for other games "weapon selecting" as well.

    The only con to this is not having any of your extra buttons work. I haven't had a chance to try third party button customization options, but I couldn't imagine they don't exist. If I find one I like, I'll be sure to update this post. So far a great mouse, with the exception of the absolutely terrible drivers for OSX. For $85 (sale on newegg) I expected better quality drivers, but, still a great mouse in terms of comfortably and button layout.

    I'd just like to say that for all those people complaining that this mouse is to heavy, you must be spending WAY to much time on the computer. I mean, the mouse is like 1/4th a pound, if you're really to weak to move a mouse around a desk then that's just sad. Sure it's heavier than the common mouse, but it's NOT a common mouse. I actually love the weight to the mouse, it makes me feel like it's solid and of good quality.

    In the end, I give the drivers a 1 star for OSX and the actual mouse 4 stars. I could see this mouse getting better reviews if maybe it was set to a more reasonable price of $60.

    Needs to be Bluetooth

    • Written by from Holly

    Love this mouse. Fits my hand "like a glove" and is great for precise graphics work. However, it's really DUMB that it's not Bluetooth. My laptop has 2 USB ports - using this mouse limits me to 1 available USB port. Love the mouse, hate that it's not Bluetooth.

    it's good/better, but not quite there

    • Written by from Anderson

    I bought this mouse for my macbookpro (mac os x 10.7)
    and the first quirk was: it wasn't supported. at all.
    I then started using it with my work laptop, until recently I discovered that logitech came out with the new drivers for it.
    After installing the new driver and tweaking around with it for a while, it works quite well. I must however say, it is clear that this mouse is not 'native' to the mac system. It still has a few quirks about it, but I'm still tweaking the settings.
    bottom line: it is a great mouse, but it isn't a plug and play type of deal when hooking it up to a 10.7 mac os. By the time it does get to where it need to be, the next os x will already be out...so, we'll have to wait and see.
