Logitech is one of the patriarchs of mice – especially mice that goes beyond the traditional two-button type mouse that comes with your computer.
For some people a mouse is something they simply click. But for power users a mouse is a tool used for making their document management experience better.
The mouse I now use is an older Logitech trackball mouse – with wires. I might switch to this new Logitech mouse soon.
Logitech writes – Featuring the Logitech MX¬? Laser Engine, the MX1000 delivers a new pinnacle of performance no optical mouse can match. With an incredible 20x more sensitivity to surface detail¬?or tracking power¬?than optical, laser can track reliably even on tricky polished or wood-grain surfaces. And the MX1000 offers even more advanced features that will make you more productive and more comfortable.
Cnet writes The cursor never jumped or paused in the three months we used it, and in addition to the $80 MX1000’s laser precision, it is comfortable to use–for right-handers, anyway. The deeply carved left side provides a snug perch for your thumb, and the rubberized plastic on either side makes for exceedingly comfortable mousing. You’ll find three programmable keys above your thumb and three more, including the scrollwheel itself, are on the top.
The wireless mouse ships with an RF base station, which doubles as a battery charger. Battery life is phenomenal; you can go days without recharging. We particularly like the battery-power meter along the top of the mouse. You may forget to recharge the MX1000 at the end of the day because the battery lasts so long on a single charge, so the three green LEDs are a good reminder: when it gets down to one light, it’s time to recharge.
