Logitech VX Revolution - Neat Mouse for Laptops

A while back, we purchased some Logitech MX Revolution and posted a review: Hardware Review: Logitech MX Revolution. Essentially, it is an awesome mouse.

Recently, we had need to pick up some mice for a few of our shop laptops, and since the MX Revolution was not necessarily the best option for a laptop, we looked at a few other models.

We settled on the Logitech VX Revolution.

The mouse is excellent. One of them ended up connected to the laptop being used at home to write the upcoming SBS 2008 Blueprint book. The surface it is being used on is our dining room table which is a flat white melamine.

The mouse tracks flawlessly across the table and the very large glide pads make the effort to move the mouse about virtually feather light.

The scroll wheel has the ability to move freely or have a click-lock style of movement. On the MX Revolution, that action changes automatically depending on the application being used. On the VX Revolution there is a slider switch on the bottom of the mouse to switch between modes.

Logitech has branched out as far as their product lines are concerned. However, their ability to design and manufacture a computer mouse is definitely at the top of the list as far as quality and features are concerned.

One neat feature of the mouse for those of us prone to losing small items that are necessary to the operation of a device like say the radio receiver: This mouse has a small slot in the back that the radio receiver tucks into that also turns the mouse off thus saving battery life.
