Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5500 Revolution

We just finished installing a Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5500 Revolution keyboard and mouse combination kit.

Out of the box, the software that comes with the kit is out of date.

Once the SetPoint drivers have been installed we get a prompt to update the Bluetooth radio:


Current firmware version: 1.0.89

New firmware version: 1.1.92

We have had a few of these updates hiccup where the update seemingly goes on without stopping. We then have to force close the update process. When that happens, most of the time we can pull the radio and let it sit for a minute then reattempt the update.


In this case though we did not have an issue and are currently typing up this post on the MX 5500 keyboard which has an okay action and key click.

The MX Revolution is, in our opinion, probably one of the best mice that we have ever used. Both the MX and VX series mice are used extensively by us at MPECS.
