    Amazon.com Product Description

    Logitech's diNovo Media Desktop is a dramatically designed Bluetooth keyboard and MediaPad, optical mouse, and Bluetooth hub combination that transforms the user’s work space. The visually striking diNovo keyboard gives first-class comfort, while the separate MediaPad lets users remotely command today’s PC digital-media interface to enjoy their favorite pictures and musical selections. The MediaPad also displays e-mail or instant message notifications, media playback status, and provides smart calculator functionality.

    The ensemble includes Logitech’s high-precision MX-900 rechargeable optical mouse. The diNovo also turns the PC into a Bluetooth control center, letting users synchronize data between their Bluetooth PDAs, cell phones, other devices, and their PCs. You've never seen anything like the MediaPad, a Bluetooth remote commander for all your digital media. Use it to remotely view, select, and launch your favorite jukebox tunes, video clips, or digital photos.

    The MediaPad also displays e-mail or instant message notifications, and it lets you monitor media playback status, even when you're away from your desk. It's a numeric keypad with a built-in smart calculator. And you can view the time and date on the digital display. To streamline your desktop, a single external device performs two critical functions: it serves as a wireless hub for all your Bluetooth devices and as a fast power charger for the mouse. Communicate instantly using your Bluetooth headset, or easily exchange data between your PC and your Bluetooth PDA, cell phone, and printer. Thanks to the power of Bluetooth, you can do it all without wires.

    But what is Bluetooth, anyway?
    Bluetooth is a standard wireless technology aimed at allowing users to make effortless, fast connections between various devices, such as mobile devices and computers. The sophisticated mode of transmission ensures protection from interference and increased data security and offers greater wireless range. Your Bluetooth devices by Logitech will work up to 30 feet away from the included Bluetooth wireless hub.

    MediaPad Features
    • A Bluetooth remote media commander
      Use it to remotely view, select, and launch your favorite jukebox tunes, video clips, or digital photos. Monitor media playback status, even when you're away from your desk.
    • Communications center
      Receive e-mail or instant message notifications on the MediaPad's interactive display, even when you're away from your PC.
    • A desktop companion
      The MediaPad also acts as a numeric keypad with a built-in smart calculator. And you can view the time and date on the digital display, automatically synchronized with your PC's clock.
    Mouse Features
    • MX Optical Engine
      A new benchmark in optical systems combines high resolution and a high frame rate to achieve superior performance.
    • More efficient Web navigation
      Cruise Control combines two buttons with a scroll wheel to ease scrolling through long documents or Web sites. And two thumb buttons let you move forward or backward between pages.
    • Quick-switch program selector
      Navigate back and forth among active programs and documents.
    • Comfortable design
      Its sleek, contoured shape fits snugly into your right hand for optimal comfort.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed... Problems after only 1 week of use...
    I am actually using diNovo keyboard to type this review, and it is a bit of a struggle due to malfunctioning spacebar. :(

    I did a bit of research on diNovo before buying it. Most online magazines (PCMag, CNet, etc.) highly recommend this product, noting its high price as the only drawback.

    I got this keyboard/mouse combo a week ago, and I must say it looks and feels great. Separate keyboard and touchpad save you desk space. Mouse runs all day without a need for recharging.

    I didn't experience any connection issues. It was only one time that I had to press the "connect" buttons on BlueTooth hub and mouse to have it re-detected because it stopped functioning all of the sudden.

    The initial installation was smooth. I downloaded the latest drivers, got everything connected and everything went well from there... until yesterday.

    All of the sudden the space bar (probably the most useable key on any keyboard) started losing response. I had to hit it harder to move the cursor and even then, at times, it would not respond. As I type this, I often have to hit the spacebar 4-5 times in order to make a single space between the words.

    Another problem surfaced early this morning. The lower "fast scroll" mouse button would sometimes result in a "locked" fast scroll. This could be a software issue, I am not sure.

    One thing is for certain, the assembly quality seems to be on the lower side. I reached this conclusion based not only on personal experience, but by reading other customer reviews and comments. Given the high price of this product, I am extremely disappointed, if not angry. This is probably the most expensive keyboard/mouse combo on the market, and one thing Logitech should have made sure is that it is of solid build quality. The product is produced by a Logitech plant in China, by the way.

    As far as support goes, here is the story so far...

    I made a big mistake by not saving the original packaging, so I am not sure if I'll be able to exchange it at local store.

    I called up Logitech support (you can find their contact information at logitech.com), and had a live person on the line after a short wait. I told them about the problem, and the tech. support rep said that I have to exchange it at local store where I bought the product since it's been less than 90 days since the purchase.
    I told him that I didn't keep the original box and that the retail store may have problem with that. He said that they will make an exception and handle the exchange themselves if the retailer won't accept the exchange.

    I e-mailed the store where I got diNovo, and, at this point, I am waiting for their reply. I will post a follow-up review and tell how this thing plays out and if the replacement keyboard is any better than the original.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Set Up!!! Where are the Mac drivers?
    As a Mac user, this is the keyboard I expected to see come out of Cupertino. Since Apple has decided to not move to a 'more than one button' set-up (at this point it is just ego) I decided to snag one of these guys from Ebay on the cheap. Instantly, I loved it. Five minutes later I was ticked off to find that it does not work with OS X... well it does it you rig it up but th numerical keyboard does not work AT ALL. It is just a really expensive calculator at this point. What really gets me is how simple it would be for Logitech to write a simple driver so that Mac users, who are notoriou for over spending for great design, could use their product. Talk about a swing and a miss... shame on you Logitech. Same.

    2-0 out of 5 stars If you don't like notebook keyboard, this one either.
    A beautiful product, but not so comfortable. The feeling of keystroke is very similar to gerenal notebook keyboard.

    The mediapad is not a good idea for non-western language, you will get ???? for all non-western character. And I get my mediapad RMAed twice (a tedious procedure that I won't mention here). The idea of media center is not as useful, because the software is tightly integrated with MS Media Player, so I can not get any benefit from my iTunes.

    If you don't use keyboard often, and need some beautiful gadget on your desktop, I would recommend this. Otherwise, find other robust keyboard.

    5-0 out of 5 stars wireless is wonderful
    This was really easy to set up because you don't have to figure out what plugs into what, and I love that I can be up to 30 feet away from the computer and it still works because of the Bluetooth. I can even be in the next room, which comes in handy when you work from home like I do.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but functionality is problematic at best.
    After having this keyboard for two days I'm returning it because
    I'm already frustrated with pressing the connect button on
    EVERY device every time I boot up. It is a beautiful, slick
    keyboard and the mouse is great. But it's of no use to me if
    I have to go through this connection hassle EVERY TIME I BOOT UP. Logitech should not have put this thing on the market without testing it futher, and if this is indicative of bluetooth technology... best of luck to them.

    Forget it, back to my wired keyboard and optical mouse. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars So far, rather thrilled
    I purchased this product due to its Bluetooth capabilities. While it takes a bit more setup than your standard keyboard and mouse, it works extremely well. The keyboard and mouse work very well and have a great feel. The keyboard is extremely comfortable. The mouse charger also acts as a Bluetooth hub, which I used to connect my Palm Pilot and hope to use with a Bluetooth enabled phone soon.

    The software also provides a few nice extras, such as onscreen volume display. Cap Lock/Num Lock/Scroll Lock onscreen display.

    It came down to this product or the Microsoft Bluetooth setup. I chose Logitech both because of my previous success with their products and because the keyboard is a standard layout. The Microsoft version moves the Insert/Delete// block of six keys into a two column formation and doubles the size of the delete key. As a programmer, this frustrated me to no end.

    Overall I am very impressed and I am planning on purchasing a duplicate set for my home.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Logitech Cordless Desktop MX for Bluetooth is amazing
    The Logitech Cordless MX Duo provided comfort, style, rechargeable mouse and most importantly MX technology. With the new advancement with the MX technology, it was still missing one main component, Bluetooth technology. It makes any component capable of achieving wireless range of thirty feet and nearly perfect communication integrity with the Bluetooth Wireless Hub. Not only does the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX for Bluetooth contain Bluetooth technology, it still retains all previous terrific features from the keyboard and the mouse. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Probably the best wireless keyboard+mouse set out there
    I bought this set after a long search for a wireless set with a USB keyboard connector for my laptop (thanks to Toshiba for not putting one on my P10). When I opened the box and installed it on my laptop (prior to installing the drivers, which I had to download from Logitech's website) and no problems of detection (both on my Windows XP and Gentoo Linux systems). And everything worked like a dream after installing the software packages. If you take to time to play with the iTouch settings you can create a monster of the keyboard (attaching menus (instead of direct commands) to the hot keys, etc.)

    I actually had no intentions of writing a review for this set, I didn't even buy it from Amazon but some of the reviews here gave such a bad impression that I had to. First the bluetooth hub works fine with non-Logitech devices, however if a bluetooth hub or similar device is installed prior to this set, the setup utility limits the hub to the keyboard+mouse set in order not to screw your existing Bluetooth configuration.

    Someone made a point about the hotkey icons.
    "Shopping Cart" for Shopping

    How can you better describe shopping. The same goes for all the other hotkeys. I'm starting to doubt that you are talking about this particular product.

    Also the keyboards battery consumption is quite economic, compared to my heavy usage (about 10-15 hours per day)

    Why 4 stars? No users manual or software is included with the box. Downloading the software (around a total of 40 MB) can be frustrating for people using Dial-up.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Bluetooth is Worthless
    I bought the Logitech bluetooth keyboard and mouse because I wanted to use the Logitech bluetooth headset HS01 and thought the combo might be worth it. I should have listened to the hints buried in other reviews.

    First the Logitech bluetooth adapter stinks. With the Logitech Hs01 there is lots of static and the headset constantly drops. The adapter also drops the mouse and keyboard at times, and then forces setup again which takes a couple of minutes! When I pair the headset with a Belkin bluetooth hub it works almost flawlessly, and yes the mouse also works. The keyboard seems to have Logitech only logic so forget it.

    That leaves the mouse and keyboard. The feel of the keyboard is very nice which is why I give it 2 stars. The funky special keys I could get used to and eventually use.

    The mouse I like the shape and feel of, although it is heavy. Can probably get used to half the functions on it. What I do not like is that it takes a couple of seconds for the mouse to be active after you have been idle. This does not appear to be the case when it is linked to the Belkin bluetooth hub, although I only used it that way for a couple of hours.

    But the whole thing is going back. I will probably replace it with the MX duo which is the same mouse and keyboard but with just RF. After all why pay the premium for the bluetooh version when the Logitech implementation of bluetooth seems to be poor.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Keyboard doesn't work
    I eagerly awaited my Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and upon arrival I immediately installed it. That began five frustrating days of troubleshooting. There is no "Manual", you just get this huge picture setup page (like comes with new Dell machines). The troubleshooting contained on this thing does not exist. Since the keyboard would not work, my machine was effectively shutdown. I tried putting my old keyboard and mouse back on, but the machine didn't recognize them either. Spent many hours searching for solutions on the web (on someone else's machine), and have finally found a work around, but it defeats the purpose of installing the system in the first place. The work around allows me to use the keyboard and mouse, but the computer no longer recognizes the Bluetooth hub (even though my keyboard and mouse connect through it).

    Logitech's support consisted of "Put it on another machine and see if it works there." That advice came two days into troubleshooting and research. Research found many people with the same problem, so why would I want to "Lock up" another machine? Logitech has yet to respond. Support -5 stars since they are actually hurting my troubleshooting at this point!

    Bottom line: Unless you want to take a chance on locking up your machine, wait a few months until Logitech can figure this problem out (may take longer at their current speed of advance)! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars overall a great gadget
    This leftie with "piano fingers" is very satisfied with the Logitech Cordless Trackman Wheel. I use it right-handed (and think of it as left-brain crosstraining). Ergonomically I find it very comfortable - my hand rests easily over the unit with the forefinger on the left button, middle finger on the wheel, and ring finger on the right button. The cordless connection works flawlessly in both the PS/2 and USB ports. I've noticed no degradation in response at four feet of separation even when I rest the Trackman on my knee and the signal has to pass through an oak desk to get to the receiver. In terms of comfort, the lack of wrist and finger movement required by the design itself is greatly enhanced by the ability to place the Trackman at any angle, level, or orientation. My favorite is on my thigh beneath the desk.

    There is a bit of a learning curve if you've never used a Trackball device before. It's not unlike being used to driving a stick shift and then finding yourself in an automatic groping around for a non-existent clutch. For a while I caught myself instinctively sliding the Trackman in certain circumstances. But when you get it down, it is easier, more comfortable, and more efficient than mousework.

    In terms of accuracy, I would say that with the proper configuration, it is just as accurate as a mouse. It takes some time to get used to the trackball and you may need to tweak the acceleration and speed settings until you find the right balance that works for you.

    A couple things I'm not so crazy about:

    The scroll wheel doubles as a programmable third button. It is so close in height to the left and right buttons and sandwiched so tightly between them that I find it difficult to use it as a button without inadvertently hitting the left or right click button (and I have long, skinny fingers).

    And finally, if you're using this on a laptop with a built-in pointing device, you may not be able to fully tweak the Trackman settings if you run it through the PS/2 port. I got that warning when I set it up on my Thinkpad (with an integrated touchpad and trackpoint). Fortunately I had a free USB port I could dedicate to the remote receiver (the adapters you need for either the USB or PS/2 connection are included). So laptop users who don't have a free USB port may find that they are unable to fully configure the Trackman. This could be a problem because it's something you'll really want to get just right.

    And skip the CD-ROM installation and just go to their website to register and download the latest version of the drivers and software

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best for graphic artists
    I've used just about every pointing device available. Trackpoints are the worst. Touchpads are pretty bad, difficult to control, and you keep scrolling in areas and clicking on things that you never intended. Mice are okay, except (among other things) that fairly often I have observed people (including myself) clicking and missing--the pointer was on the target, but when you released the left button, you twitched and so nothing happens. Also, mice will wear you out after a while; I find a lot of muscle tension at the end of a day. Trackballs avoid these problems. With these devices, when you've got the pointer exactly where you want it, take your thumb off the ball and then click--this is especially good for novices. Trackballs generally give greater control and, when it comes to moving the pointer across the screen, just a tiny thumb movement takes you from corner to corner (if you adjust the motion properly in the control panel).

    The Logitech Cordless Trackman Wheel is the best trackball I've seen, and I've owned a bunch of them. It has all the features mentioned above and is very ergonomic and relaxing to use. When I cruise the internet, I sit almost motionless, concentrating totally on the information being displayed. Oddly enough, I do recommend playing some solitaire to develop the unconscious feel for the device. One nice feature (a point of distinction): this device uses radio frequency communication and does not require line of sight. I have used it on a table in the middle of the room, the desk being against the wall, without problem (I have a fairly large monitor).

    Could the Logitech be improved? Yes. There's room for another button under the ring finger. The scroll wheel could be a little smoother (sometimes you move it one notch and nothing happens, but it's not a big deal, just move it another notch). Something that probably could not be improved is its apparent indestructability; it fell from my hand as I was changing batteries and, trying to catch it, wound up slamming it into the hardwood floor. I was somewhat awed to find that it still worked.

    All in all, I recommend this pointing device above all others.

    2-0 out of 5 stars The worst I have ever owned
    This was the third Logitech trackball I've owned. Like the other reviewers, I am a lefty, however I am a righthanded mouser. My previous one was the TrackMan Vista which fit my hand like a glove and the buttons were in the exact right place when I put my hand on it in a natural position. I'd still be using it if the sensors hadn't worn out from age, use and dust.

    This trackman was stiff to use and I had to keep shifting my hand to hit the buttons. It did not install easily and would not connect using the ps2 adaptor so I was forced to use the usb connector and for some reason that caused issues with activesync so that every time I put my pda in it's docking station - the cursor would freeze. Trying to get some real support from Logitech was a joke. I finally had enough after 4 days of this and went to a big box electronic store and ended up buying a Microsoft Optical Trackman Explorer. I am much happier as it is closer to the Vista than anything Logitech makes now. It loaded easier, is more responsive and doesn't cause the issues the Trackman Wheel did. The Logitech will be in my next garage sale if anyone is interested.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Logitech got it right
    I have had mine for years and it is still going strong. Never had a problem with it. If you like to only move your thumb this trackball is for you. Once you go trackball you don't go back.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Mouse to end all Mice
    This is the greatest mouse ever to grace my palm. Many people have trouble using the mouse when they first sit down to try it. But now both my wife and I use one these wonders.

    There is no shuffling around the mouse to get to new screen real estate, there is no cord to get in the way, and you can comfortably lean back, rest it on your leg, and mouse away.

    It is too bad more companies don't follow suit, this is the best design I have ever used, and tryst me, I spend a lot of time mousing. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect mouse for your laptop! No annoying cable, A++!
    Got this mouse from Amazon today, it's perfect for my laptop or anyone's laptop! Installed flawlessy on an older laptop, as with every Logitech mouse I've purchased, never had to use the installation CD.

    Installation for this mouse couldn't be easier: take out of package, plug small receiver into USB slot, press connect button, load 2 batteries into mouse, press connect button, and it works instantly! It even comes with a neoprene case for the mouse and receiver when you're travelling. Great form-factor, scroll works well, attractive medium silver mouse, and no annoying cable! Haven't had "difficult to click" problems like other reviewers...no problems. What more could you want? It costs $40 + tax in the store, here on Amazon, it's $30, free ship, a must have. My previous mouse was optical but not cordless....moving a laptop around the house is very annoying when you have a long mouse cable meant for a desktop computer, now mousing is effortless.....definitely buy this mouse....Logitech is a brand you can trust!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Amazingly Handy Accessory!
    I just had to write a review to say how much I love this mouse! It fits well in my hand and the buttons and wheel have a comfortable feel to them. It can be used with either hand, so you don't need to get seperate ones for righties and lefties. The optical sensor makes it easier to use for me than a traditional mouse - I tend to sit on the floor or sofa a lot while I work and it can actually be pretty far away from the sensor and still work fine. (I even worked with my arm draped over the back of the couch just to see if it would work that way, and it did - comfy!)

    It has a good little zippered carrying case with it.

    In my case I didn't even have to install the software for its drivers. I just plugged it into my gateway notebook and it worked immediately.

    The only thing I can think of that would potentially improve this product is if it went into sleep mode if it wasn't used for several minutes to conserve the batteries, but I like it despite the fact that I have to remember to turn it off. So far, battery life seems to be pretty good.

    I would recommend this product without reservation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Logitech you've done it again!
    This mouse is a great laptop mouse. Before this i got a targus mouse which had a few technical difficulties so i got this mouse. This mouse is small, easy to install, and it is a plud in and play mouse...unlike other mice when you hafta restart the computer. This is the best wireless mouse for the best price

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best mouse I've ever owned.
    (Revision: after a while, a mechanical problem developed when I didn't fully lift my finger off a mouse click and it thought the click was complete. This lead to many misclicks, inappropriate double-clicks, and other problems. Still a great mouse... you can't avoid problems in one out of a million mice).

    This mouse is by far the best accessory I have for my laptop. There are a lot of reviews citing the USB connector as too stiff or sticking out too much, but let me tell you: it is better than the bulky connectors other manufacturers make. Here are my other comments, in list form:

    1. The mouse is stylish and solid. With the batteries in it is a nice weight and doesn't feel flimsy.

    2. Battery life. I use two rechargeable AA batteries that I have not charged since I bought the mouse about a month ago. The on/off switch on the bottom is a great feature. I had to get used to the concept of turning my mouse off when I wasn't using it, but once I did I realized I was saving battery life with little effort.

    3. The cordless receiver and the mouse fit great into the included carrying case; one of the best features of this mouse for people on the run.

    4. The range is great. Once you go to a cordless mouse, especially this one, you will never go back to one with a cord.

    5. Setup was a snap. I never touched any drivers on any computer. After less than a minute of detection in Windows XP it worked without a hitch. When I connected it to my PowerMac with Mac OS X, it worked within seconds. Truly seamless.

    6. Great laptop accessory. I bought a desktop replacement (17" screen) laptop computer because I needed performance, processor power, and graphics precision. It is hard to do graphics with the included touch pad, but as soon as I plug in this mouse, I have an instant mobile desktop. It enhances mobile performance with a smile.

    In summary, I haven't bought any other cordless mice to compare because I don't need to. If you get this mouse, you won't regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No Regrets, Excellent Cordless Mouse!
    Great accessory to have for laptop users. I have used this mouse with my laptop for approximately 3 weeks now. I chose a wireless laptop mouse because it means that there is one less cord in the way.

    Pro's:
    1. Logitech is a name that you can trust. I expect no manufacturing defects or problems. It feels like a quality product.
    2. Works on a number of surfaces.
    3. Great battery power. This mouse is not a power hog. The on and off switch, located on the bottom of the mouse is a great feature. I have yet to change the batteries out yet.
    4. Excellent wireless performance. I have had no issues with the mouse not performing because it is wireless. Unless you expect to use your laptop from more than 3 feet away (which pretty much means you wont be able to see the text on the monitor), you shouldnt have any problems.
    5. Convenient travel pouch where you can store the USB receiver and the mouse.
    6. Perfect size - the mouse is not too small, and not too big. Instead of being awkward and taking time to get used to, a person can use it right away.

    Con's:
    1. USB dongle sticks out a bit more than I expected. My USB ports are on the back of my laptop and when the USB receiver for the mouse is plugged in, it sticks out approximately 2.25 inches.
    2. As mentioned in other reviews, the feel of this mouse is a bit stiff. I use my mouse in a classroom setting and everytime I click, the whole classroom can hear it.
    3. The mouse is pretty heavy with the batteries loaded in it, but you cant really cite that as a fault. The mouse does need power to run. I just put it here to let you know.

    Conclusion: Excellent mouse that performs as promised. I have no regrets with this purchase and would definately recommmend to others. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fast mouse...
    I bought this mouse earlier this year when it was exclusive to Best Buy and before the blue one was out. I've been very happy with it so far. Very quick & responsive. Best mouse for gamers and quicker and more reliable than wireless, with no need for batteries or recharging!! Set-up was a breeze. I like the forward/back buttons on the side and the customizable buttons on top, makes surfing the net easier and more fun. My sole complaint is it lacks the little red LED my old microsoft mouse had, but that's just a cosmetic/design issue. The MX 510 is very smooth and fits my hand comfortably. Amazon has a great price w/ free shipping too! Highly Recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!!!
    I mean, I've been comparing Logitech MX 510 Performance Optical Mouse and the Microsoft tilt mouse, but this mouse recovers the fact that it can't tilt, but only on spreadsheets do u need t hat ability.. u can change between documents without using Alt+Tab!! wow

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Mouse I've Ever Used
    Having been a computer gamer and user most of my life, I've come in contact with many different mice. The mx510 is the best.

    The design is the same as the mx500, mx700, and mx900 series, a somewhat tried-and-true style. The forward and back buttons (on the left side of the mouse) are close enough to use easily, but aren't in danger of being accidentally clicked. The up and down buttons (positioned above and below the scrollwheel) take some getting used to, but are useful enough to outweigh this. The up button *isn't* the most natural button, but I'm able to click it with my forefinger easily (despite reviews to the contrary), and my hands are average sized.
    The switch application button seems to be the only downfall of the mouse. It isn't as easy to reach as the other buttons and its usefulness is questionable. A friend of mine with the mx700 (same design, just a little older and wireless), however, swears by that button and says he couldn't be happier that it was included. Even in the case of someone who doesn't like it, it really doesn't take away from the mouse; you'd don't have to use it if you don't want to.
    Note: I would not recommend this to anyone that uses a mouse with their left hand.

    The optical engine is newer and supposedly better than the older mx500s and mx700s. I, however, haven't really noticed a difference, having used an mx700 before. Despite that, it's amazingly smooth. I have heard people online and in person complain that it "jerks" or is "twitchy," but I'd venture a guess that most of those people either do not have quality mousepads or have incorrect sensitivity settings in their OS. One person who mentioned the twitchiness to me in person showed it to me, and then was surprised when I fixed it easily by turning on "Enhance pointer precision" and lowering the sensitivity. The mouse will track on virtually anything: fabrics (if you're using a laptop while sitting on the couch), just about any hard shiny surface (that traditional trackball mice have difficulty with), plastic, paper, metal, you name it.

    The software included is easy to use and has never had a compatibility issue that I've seen. Remapping *any* of the buttons to a variety of different controls is easy. For example: I was able to map the up and down buttons to "next song"/"last song" in Winamp, which is one of the coolest things I've seen a mouse do.

    Overall it is a wonderful product and a great deal for someone looking for a new, stylish, light, and feature intensive corded mouse.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not very comfortable (I'm right handed)
    I'm an avid gamer heavily into online FPS games. So it goes without saying the mouse is one of the more important equipment to a gamer like myself. I took a look at this mouse, looked very snazzy, and the design seemed rather ergonomic. Didn't have a store display model I can play around with, but I still purchased this anyways.

    Been using this for about a week now. If you're a FPS gamer, you'll realize that when you move your mouse, you often times lift the mouse up and reposition and move the mouse again. This wasn't made for that. There is a groove for the thumb but the groove on the right side seems to have been made for the ring finger, but feels more comfortable placing my pinkie finger there.

    And because of that oddly placed groove on the right side, I'm constantly struggling to find a good position to lay my hands on. I've been on the recieving end of someone's muzzle many times because I was preoccupied with trying to find comfort.

    For basic window navigation and web surfing, it's okay. The back page button is real handy, and the autoscroll down button (right below the wheel) saves me the hassle of constantly scrolling the wheel. However, the forward page button and autoscroll up button is placed in an awkward position, requiring you to reposition your hand just to reach those two.

    Not a horrible purchase by far. Haven't had trouble...yet.

    edit - 3 June 2004:

    I just noticed this. Try this the next time you're in a store with a display model of Mx 510. Flip the mouse around so the buttons are pointing at your direction. Now, put your LEFT hand on the mouse. REAL comfortable, aren't they? The thumb groove is not crampy, and the pinkie and ring finger now has a VERY comfortable spot!

    Did logitech put the grooves on backwards?! My goodness!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent optical mouse with accurate tracking.
    This optical mouse has accurate tracking. It can track well on surfaces where other optical mice would have failed. The extra buttons make desktop navigation quicker and more convenient. Because this mouse is chorded and does not require batteries, it weighs very light. Although the mouse is sort of bulbous in shape, it fits people with small hands. However, this mice prefers right handers because of the location of the thumb rest and thumb buttons. I think this mouse is ideal for people who do both office work and gaming. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ease of use
    The Logitech cordless keyboard and mouse are excellent! The keyboard has crisp button feel with multiple programable buttons to open your email server, your favorite web page, easily control your volume, a separate scroll wheel on the left and lots more. The keyboard is ultra slim as well, with a good wrist rest.

    The mouse is the best part, though. I love the multiple buttons, and all of them are programmable with lots of choices. I programmed the wheel so when you press it down, it closes the program the mouse is on. Sweet! There are a couple of speed scroll buttons, so you don't keep turning the wheel. I've got the up button at the max, so I press it and the page scrolls to the top instantly.

    I haven't tried the range out past a couple feet from the receiver, but my computer is in a hutch and the wood doesn't block the signal at all. I highly recommend this set. It has made a huge difference; no cables to move around, the optical never gets dirty, skips or suddenly stops the movement of the mouse. This set has worked flawlessly, no problems of slow response or hiccups. Enjoy it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Typical Logitech, but not without its flaws.
    All of my Logitech products still work and I still use the optical mouse I reviewed here two years ago. My wife and got Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combo to go with a media center PC I cobbled together to go with our 50" Panasonic plasma TV. Typical Logitech- everything works flawlessly right out of the box and they're kind enough to supply batteries for both the mouse and keyboard, (NiMH rechargables for the mouse and Duracells for the keyboard).

    Basically, you get a recharging base for the mouse that also acts as a receiver for the RF signals. It's a little messy with the wires- power supply and USB+PS2 connectors that attach to the back of the computer. While I suspect signal range is a good 20 or 30 feet, it's doubtful that anyone has the vision to be that far away from their monitor, even a big one.

    The keyboard has several controls designed to keep hunting for icons at a minimum- volume control, CD/DVD control buttons, plus ones for e-mail, instant messengers, and search engines, it'll even turn on your web cam, and a neat-o scroll wheel on the left side. On the downside, the keyboard feels cheap- it creaks and wobbles slightly because it doesn't sit flat. The feel of all the keys is first rate.

    Another downside is the mouse- it works great and feels very solid, but it's heavy. Too heavy for gaming, making movements clunky. And unlike the Microsoft web mouse, the Back and Forth buttons that let you flip between web pages quickly are both mounted on the right side and somewhat what awkward to reach. The scroll wheel and everything else works just fine.

    All in all, a well designed and functional duo, but flawed. I would have prefered more solid construction and a lighter, better designed mouse. Worth owning for sure, and its price is very reasonable.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nice stuff but poorly designed
    I decided to get the MX duo after reading all the good reviews here because I was looking for a nice wireless combo but after a few weeks it's proven to be somewhat of a let down. Here's the lowdown:

    Good:
    * The keyboard has a decent feel to it, and the mouse has no noticeable lag.
    * Rechargeable mouse battery
    * Some of the shortcut keys on the keyboard are nice. The only ones I use are the volume control and mute which are very nice to have at your fingertips.

    Bad:
    * All the other keyboard shortcuts which I never use. It makes the keyboard much bigger than I'd need. I hardly ever listen to CDs, the controls for which take the entire top center of the keyboard. Then theres a bunch of other garbage like search, shopping, favorites, webcam, etc which I've never touched.
    * There is no indicator light on the keyboard for when you have caps / numlock on which is VERY annoying. There are, however, indicators on the recharger but it's way in the corner of my desk (they say it should be kept 3 feet from all other electronic devices). Any place I put it still makes it exceptionally aggravating to have to look over to see if I've accidently hit caps lock. Supposedly the software has some kind of indication that pops up on the screen, but I opted not to install the software because I didn't want all the stupid stuff they bundle with it. How hard is it just to keep the lights on the keyboard itself? If it aint broken...
    * The battery life for the mouse seems to be about 4-5 days. But the worst part is, unlike mice with cord chargers, you can't use the mouse while it's charging because it's sitting the in base station. So you're SOL if your mouse dies while you're working. Keep your old one handy if you buy this set.
    * I keep accidently hitting the "back" navigation button on the mouse which gets annoying too. It's big and right where your thumb can accidently press it.
    * The mouse speed takes a while to get used to. Changing my mouse settings either makes it a little too fast or a little to slow.

    I give this product 2 stars. It has its virtues, but overall I think Logitech tried to make it "too cool" without considering the design consequences. Save yourself some aggravation and pick up a different set.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cordless is good.
    After having experienced countless occassions of lacking some (both keyboard and mouse) cordlength while working, I decided to shop around for a cordless set. My eventual decision was for this set; mostly because in the past I've used Logitech hardware before and was very pleased with it. Another reason for picking this one was just because it looked cool.

    While being one of the more expensive sets on the market, I still am very pleased with the performance of the set as a whole. It does exactly what I expect, and offers great freedom of movement from both the keyboard and the mouse. While not testing the exact range in which the performance will be optimal, it allows me with more than enough flexibility to work (I'm a programmer, by the way).

    Two minor annoyances I experienced so far: Batterypower for the mouse runs off rather fast. All left to do is either put the mouse on its docking bay, or replace the batteries. The second annoyance is a little weirder. Whenever scrolling down during surfing the web, the browser for some reason registers this as if the 'Back'-button was pressed. Updating the drivers has had no impact on this (yet).

    To summarise, apart from 2 minor annoyances, this is definitely a very nice set.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best keyboard and mouse I have ever used.
    I used to own the older mouse/keyboard set from logitech with the MX500, then I upgraded to this set.

    The keyboard looks really nice, is not too heavy, and only requires 2 AA batteries, which still haven't run out. Each key seems to have its own switch, and the whole keyboard is designed so that an accidental spillage will not damage it. Although the software doesn't seem to work with Mozilla Firefox, the extra buttons are still very useful.

    The mouse is the MX700, which is probably one of the best mice on the market. Although some people claim it's too heavy, I don't find this a problem. The extra 5 buttons are very useful, especially for games. Like the keyboard, the mouse software isn't too great though, however this really isn't a problem.

    The dock for the mouse also acts as the tranceiver for both keyboard and mouse, and also includes all the keyboard lights (which obviously could not be put on a wireless keyboard). Charges last for around 3 days, and when your mouse is running out of power, a very obvious red light flashes on the top. The only real problem I've seen so far is that it can be a bit awkward to put the mouse into the dock so that it will charge. I think this could be related to build up of garbage on the contacts underneath the mouse.

    It all works fine with Linux as well, no problems. 'imps2' mouse type if you were wondering. Overall, I would recommend this keyboard and mouse to anyone (although people with small hands may have a problem using it). It's worth every cent. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Better than Logitech Optical Marble trackball, but..
    Well, most reviewers of Logitech trackballs seem to be new trackball users.

    I've used kensington's large ball trackballs, and orbit ( mechanical ) trackballs.
    So, IMHO, I think my opinion can be more accurate than others.
    Before reviewing this device, I'd like to state that trackballs are, unlike mice, should fit your hand. If not, a trackball which is very comfortable to one's hand, can be inconvenient to others' hands.
    And I'm not biased to any companies.

    Trackman wheel optical mouse is more comfortable than its optical marble trackball. The problem of the marble trackball is that it's too nannow, and the buttons are located higher position than it should be. Probably people with small hand, for example, kids, can be satisfied with the trackball, but to others, it may not be. I don't have big hands, but my thumbs located comfortably on the lower portion of the left button and far right side of the right button.

    However, this trackball, trackman wheel optical, is different.
    It's more comfortable.
    However this also has some defects.
    First, it's too much curved. To be comfortable, the curve should be lesser when it approaches to the end of fingers. it should be more rounded on the palm side and less on the finger portion. However it's too much curved on the finger portion.
    Most comfortable one is just to put your hand relaxed. However this trackball doesn't allow it.

    Second, the mouse control panel software is another problem.
    It doesn't allow pressing two button at the same time.
    For example, Kensington's one allows it. So, you can set left and right buttons as usual. And pressing two buttons can work as click-and-lock. However with Logitech's program, you can assign it only with left or right button.
    So, you should give up one of the two buttons if you want to use
    "click-and-lock" feature.
    OK. You can use the scroll wheel as a thrid button, though.
    However, it's not so convenient.

    With trackballs, click-and-lock is very important, I think.
    It's a little harder to click and move mouse cursor than you do
    with mice. So, good "click-and-lock" feature is a must, IMHO.

    And I doubt if the scroll wheel is convenient. As I said above, it's too rounded on the finger portion. So, scrolling is not so convenient.

    Some people mentioned that Kensington's trackball doesn't have scroll whell.
    However, you know, the trackball itself can work as a wheel, and it's more convenient. With kensington's software, the trackball itself can work as a scroll wheel very conveniently.

    I've also read that the Kensington's Optical orbit is not so resistant to dirt.
    So, I can't judge how convenient it is.
    However its orbit mouse ( not optical ) is much better choice than any trackballs from the Logitech. ( I'm sorry. Logitech's mices are great, but their trackball is not so good as Kensington's. )

    Well, problem with Kensingon is that their products are somewhat expensive, and is not as widely available as Logitech's. Most retail stores have Logitech's but not Kensington's.

    I recommend this Logitech's trackball more than its marble trackbal.
    And if you are more more hardcore user of a trackball, the Kensington's one will be yours.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Logitech Makes the Best
    This is my third Logitech trackball. The trackball it replaces is a Logitech Trackman that I bought in 1995. Nothing attached to my computer was anywhere close to that old.

    I finally got tired of cleaning the ball on the old Trackman. My wife has both an Logitech marble trackball and a Logitech optical cordless mouse, and I wanted the best, too.

    While each new Microsoft OS has had problems with the older version of Mouseware software, in my experience, Logitech is always the first to have updated drivers available shortly after release of new OS's.

    After using the trackball for about 5 months, I'm still thrilled. Sure, the gunk from my oily, sticky, food-covered hands still builds up on the ball, but unlike mechanical mice and trackballs, it doesn't cause sticking and jumping of the cursor. The action was still smooth. I had not even noticed that it was getting harder to move the ball until I popped the ball out, and gave the contact points a quick cleaning.

    So even with five months of built-up grime, it was still working just fine.

    Now not everyone likes trackballs. I use a mouse at work, and it's probably better for me to be moving my whole arm. But at home my desk is too messy. There's no room to move a mouse, and even if I were able to, I'd hit my elbow on something else.

    Not for one minute have I regretted buying this trackball.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great mouse
    I've been using this mouse for a little over the last 3 years. It has worked well without any problems until recently. I think due to excessive use the left button is starting to fail.

    I would like to add that I completely disagree svtman21 about this mouse (and trackballs in general) not being good for gaming. I've been gaming successfully with trackballs for the last 6 years and would never consider going back. I consider myself quite competitive in online games and have competed in CAL-O and CAL-I for SoF2 for just under 2 years.

    I admit that at first I noticed a little bit of thumb fatigue with excessive gaming but that subsided after repeated use. I find that trackballs offer increased precision in online FPS games like Q3A (RA3), SoF2, BF:V, UT2Kx and others.

    Trackballs certainly take sometime to get used to (a few months) but after that you will notice the enhanced control and precision a trackball provides.

    This mouse also performs well at mundane usage such as programming, document and picture editing, etc. Not to mention it is so much easier on the wrist!

    I highly recommend this mouse for general desktop use and gaming a like.

    4-0 out of 5 stars At last... relief for CTS and Wrist Rest Syndrome!
    I've been using the optical Trackman Wheel in it's many forms, from before the scroll button was popular! As a person who's constantly on the computer and one who has experienced a lot of wrist/arm pain from mouses, I swear by this trackball.

    Unlike other trackball devices (which also gave me wrist pain), this one is controlled by your thumb. Although this takes a little bit of time in getting used to, it takes all the pressure off your wrist and your hand. It's perfectly form-fitting to your hand, so you can surf or work in comfort.

    I have one at home and at work, and refuse to go back to using a mouse. It's also a great space-saver since you don't have to have all the room you'd need to operate a mouse. It never leaves its spot since you control it all with your thumb.

    A worthwhile investment if you've been experiencing wrist pain at your computer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Finger Layout???
    I agree with a post just made recently. Here it is again:

    That is, until you realize that Logitech's idea of finger layout:

    Thumb: 3 side buttons
    2. finger: Wheel
    3. and 4. finger: Ball
    5. finger: Right button

    Thank you to the poster for confirming this for me. It took me quite a while to figure this out. I wish Logitech had posted this on their site somewhere. I've been trying to get used to the mouse in various configurations. Still I swap back and forth from this one and the Logitech Trackman Marble which has always been my favorite. With it you didn't need any arm support but the Optical Trackman I think requires it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Super Mouse
    I love this mouse! Logitec has a real winner here. Our cat ate the tails off of both of our corded mice, but fortunately for me I'd already purchased one of these.

    It was an easy plug, load and play device. It performs flawlessly. I've had it for six months and would never go back. I have another model logitec cordless track ball with a thumb operated , and smaller ball on a different computer. It's twitchier & easier to overshoot a target on the screen. The index finger actually has more dexterity than the thumb. Thumbs are good for clamps but not as good for manipulation.

    This one is vastly superior. I just bought a second one for backup in case this one fails. I tried it left handed based on another review and while it did not fit the hand as well, it was still easy to use. The thumb still operates the same three primary buttons. The little finger still operates the same button. The only real difference is tha I found myself operating the track ball with the space between the first & second joints of my index finger, instead of the tip and you don't get the palm rest.

    After about 6 months on AA alkaline batteries it still operates well at 6' to 7' distances. Farther away than I can really see the screen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars State of the Art for the Trackball user
    Being a confirmed trackball person this is probably as good as it can be for now. Operation is silky smooth, all buttons are fully
    configurable and the hand comfort is excellent. Sometimes cordless
    can be pesky, not so with this unit as everything is right on. I was never much for scrolling and some of the other things this unit can do, but am now just plain spoiled.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mouse
    I just received this Trackman and have been using it for about an hour. It is excellent. The ball is smooth, precise and responsive. I bought the Microsoft version first and returned it because the ball rolled like it was a studded snow tire.
    The buttons will take some getting used to but it is worth it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Exquisite and powerful
    The best wireless trackball you can buy, period. This mouse comes fully equipped with all of the bells and whistles that you'd expect from a modern mouse. The layout of the buttons is extremely comfortable and easy to use.

    The only thing that could cause concern is the size. If you have small hands, you may want to reconsider. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I needed
    Just a quick report on my experience with this mouse. I'll start off by mentioning that perhaps I had unrealistically high expectations...
    First off I should mention that I already own it's sister mouse, the MX700, which I use with windows XP, using the standard generic drivers - i.e. I didn't install the Logitech drivers. It works great!

    I recently got an iBook with built in Bluetooth. It seemed that the MX900 would be perfect - A great mouse, no wires, and also a bluetooth hub which I could plug into the winXP box and use for wireless internet between the two computers (Yes it CAN be done).

    Well the MX900 connected to the iBook easily enough. I got the 4th & 5th buttons working with Expose, but the mouse doesn't move right. When plugged into Apple's bluetooth it develops really horrible acceleration, which make it a real pain to use :(

    Anyway I though so long as I can get the wireless internet to work then I won't mind so much. After a lot of messing around I got a bluetooth network set up on the winXP desktop machine. After even more messing around I got as close as it seems possible to get to getting Bluetooth networks set up on OS-X. Basically OS-X doesn't really support them I found out :(

    So I'm going to return the mouse. Hopefully I can swap it for a normal wifi router - I just won't have a cool mouse to go with it :(

    Oh one weird thing I noticed - the build quality of the MX900 (bought in the US) isn't as good as my MX700 (bought in the UK). Bizzare seeing as they look essentially identical. The MX900 just feels cheaper, the buttons rattle etc.

    However I should add that if you intend to use the mouse for a normal destop PC then it's still a great purchase, and probably the best mouse you can buy - I think the extra $40 (over the MX700) is worth it for the bluetooth - if you need it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Mouse, poor software
    I got this mouse with the Logitech diNovo Media Desktop which came with the bluetooth hub and a keyboard and media pad. The only problem with the mouse is that the software that lets u assign keystrokes to the buttons on the mouse actually disables the middle mouse button (mmb). I use programs that require the mmb and was wondering why this didnt work until i shut down the program SetPoint from my system tray. Doing so will render the quick switch button inactive but i find it faster to switch programs by pointing and clicking then by pressing a button then pointing and clicking. Without the program all other buttons work as normal. I dont need to assign special tasks anyway.

    Another point of interest is the battery life. I have the hub which recharges the mouse which is a must because if u dont keep it charging when not in use it will run out. U can check ur batteries by running the SetPoint software and it allows u to check batteries for the mouse as well as the keyboard and media pad if u have diNovo.

    All in all, its a great device if you use bluetooth, but if u dont need or use bluetooth you are probably better off with a regular cordless.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great mouse for Bluetooth
    I love this mouse. I use it with my laptop everyday. My Dell laptop has an internal bluetooth receiver thus making this small and easy to use. I have to charge the mouse on the hub once a week, however I really don't mind too much (I keep two extra dbl-A batteries in my laptop case). I do have to make sure to remove the batteries when I'm on the go (or the batteries will drain from detecting movement). This mouse is not suitable for left-handed people. I like the weight it has (not lightweight, but not too heavy). Its range is great (thats bluetooth for you).

    One mistake I made once was that I tried to install the Logitech software in my WindowsXP (If you just use the bluetooth software that comes with your laptop, it will find the mouse just fine). The software disabled my internal bluetooth device in the laptop and I had to use the hub in order for the mouse to work (not acceptable - otherwise I would have purchased the mx700). It took me a while to figure out that it wasn't just the Logitech software I needed to uninstall, rather I needed to remove the bluetooth hub software as well (very misleading by Logitech).

    I only rated this 4/5 stars due to the short battery life. Still, don't let that deter you if you don't mind working around that (I don't mind - I was well aware of it from reading posts on here).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Performing Mouse! But practical?
    I use this mouse with my Powerbook with built in bluetooth.

    Pros:
    - Control- I have used this mouse for first person shooter video games, which requires that a mouse be very accurate and fast, this mouse is both. Supposedly there is a theoretical bottleneck in the refresh rate with bluetooth mice vs. USB mice and Logitech's own RF mouse (mx700), but I did not notice it in my use, so its doubtful that in ordinary, everyday use that anyone can tell the difference between this mouse and other quality corded mice.
    - Ease of use- The mouse took less than 10 seconds for bluetooth to recognize the mouse and configure it. The mouse is literally plug and play, without the plug. Of course I am using my built in bluetooth, the mouse also comes with a hub that will require some installation of software that comes with package if you don't have built in bluetooth.
    - Comfort- like the other reviews say, this is definitely a right handed mouse and its probably the most comfortable mouse I have owned. Beware if you are left handed though. The mouse is also heavy due to the batteries, but less than an hour later my hand adapted and I use this mouse as naturally as any other mouse.

    Cons:
    - Battery Life- really battery life is not an issue if you remember to always put your mouse in the cradle when you are not using it. It does become an issue, however, if you plan on using the mouse for extended time periods without charging or if you forget to charge your mouse. Nothing is worse than rushing to finish a document and suddenly have your mouse run out of batteries. Does it defeat the purpose of a cordless mouse if you have to keep a normal mouse close by as a backup? But as I said, if you use this mouse for a few hours at a time and always remember to place back in the hub, you'll be all right.
    - Bluetooth hub- For me personally, I wish they would sell this mouse without the Bluetooth hub, because I don't need it. But maybe you don't need it either. What is the use of buying a "cordless mouse" when you need a hub that is connected to a cord anyways? If you are buying this mouse as a way to save room on your desk, keep in mind that you will need to connect the hub to your computer if you don't have bulit in bluetooth. This not only adds a cable going from your computer to the hub, but also adds a cable going to the electric outlet so you can use the hub to charge the mouse. So by buying a 'cordless" mouse, you've actually added an extra cord and a hub that takes up space. The hub is nice, however, if you already have some other bluetooth enable devices such as a phone or PDA that you have not been able to take advantage of because you don't have Bluetooth on your computer.
    - Laptop practicality- see above if you don't have bluetooth built in. Its even worse for a laptop to lug around a hub. But if you do have laptop with built in bluetooth and you want to use this mouse for portability purposes there are also some things you must be aware of. First off the mouse does lessen your battery life a bit by way of the bluetooth connection. Secondly there is no OFF button on the mouse (it instead turns off by sensing inactivity), so to be able to travel with it, you must take the batteries out and then put them back in when you take it out of your bag.
    - Price- This is by far the most money I've ever spent on a mouse. If you MUST have a cordless mouse and you don't care about bluetooth for your other peripherals, then consider the MX700 for almost half the price. The MX700 also comes with a hub, but it isn't bluetooth (and therefore has less range and much less connectivity options that bluetooth offers). If you can live with the decreased battery life and taking the batteries in and out, this mouse does become worth the price for a travel mouse. It is also great for Powerpoint presentations, hook up the laptop to a projector and you can sit anywhere in the room and still use your mouse to point and control the presentation, unless the room is huge like an auditorium and you are on the other side.

    Conclusion- This mouse leaves nothing to be desired as far as performance and comfort go. Ease of installation is another plus to this great product. However, before you purchase this product, ask yourself is this mouse practical for you? Do you really need a bluetooth hub? Is it really worth the price to you for the bluetooth wireless mouse vs the rf wireless mouse or even a corded mouse? If your answer is yes to these questions, then I highly recommend the MX900 mouse to you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My first Bluetooth Mouse
    Having just purchased a new notebook (Sager 8790) with internal bluetooth, I was anxious to test it out and see how it worked. I was initially a bit apprehensive over it, thinking that it might stutter in movement or be slow to react, but the thought of one less cord attached to my notebook compelled me to try.

    I chose the MX 500 because I'd heard a bad review from someone regarding the MS Bluetooth Intellimouse. However, I was reluctant to go with the Logitech mouse as I've been using MS Optical Intellimouses (Intellimice?) exclusively since they first came out.

    Upon installing the Billionton drivers, it was a snap to have my notebook recognize the MX 500. It works fantastic. I love it. In fact, I'm looking to buy a 2nd Bluetooth mouse now so I can be wireless at work, too. I'm so sold on this that it drives me crazy to use the wired MS Optical mouse at work.

    The only downside is that if you're a heavy computer user, you have to be mindful to put the mouse on the charger before going to sleep. Otherwise, you're going to have a dead mouse eventually (voice of experience). I haven't tried to set up the extra buttons above and below the scroll wheel. I can't say whether they work well or not. Convenient for those that need/want the extra options, but I'm happy enough w/ the basics (L, R, scroll, Forward, Backward).

    I'm more than impressed with this mouse and wouldn't hesitate to suggest it to anyone. I was leery at first, but am very happy I took the chance because it's fantastic being wireless with such a responsive mouse. ... Read more

    The Logitech cordless presenter gives you complete remote control of your onscreen presentation from just about anywhere in the room (up to more than 30 feet from your PC).

    Employing Bluetooth wireless technology, the presenter doesn't need line of sight with your PC. It's compatible with most presentation applications and comes with Logitech's MouseWare software, which gives you a variety of configurations for customizing your mouse buttons. The device runs on two AA batteries (included); a power-saving switch and smart power management maximize battery power. Logitech covers the cordless presenter with a five-year warranty.

    3-0 out of 5 stars You need "something" to get it work for your Mac.
    I read the recent review from PowerBook G4 user and got confidence about the compatibility of this product. Now, I can't use the right button for backwarding a slide in my powerpoint presentation. Tried to install OS 9 MouseWare software came along with the product. It didn't work. I contacted technical support of Logitech, but they just simply said that this product is not compatible with Machintosh computer. Then, why they put that OS version MouseWare in their CD? Going back to the review that I read, what that user downloaded from the internet and could get it work? Did the right button work properly? You may want to check the review from Chile to see what I mean.

    Even though with this partial functionality, this device is really must-have item for anyone who wants to present in speedy and smooth way. That is why I am still trying to find any way to make it fully functional.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top of the line product!!!
    I own a Apple powerbook G4 12 inches screen and I didn't have to install any additional software, just download some from the internet and it worked flawlesly every time I used it. Leaves the presenter with freedom to move across the room with no need to ask someone to change the slide (at last). The laser works very well, it is located in such a place that you don't have to look at the device to find it...good thinking.
    I recomend this device to anyone who makes presentations regularly..it is jaw-dropping to the audience, leaves them wondering how do you change the slides...jajaja.
    Top of the line...good thinkig Logitech

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Amaz-ing product!
    I read a whole bunch of rather positive reviews both at Amazon and online, but I have to say that I am even more amazed at how this product performs. First of all it requirs "zero" installation. I have tried it on 4 diffrent systems, from notebooks to desktops and it install and runs with no problem and no effort whatsoever on all of them. Plug it in, press the buttons on the USB controller and the mouse, wait 5 seconds and you are up and running. And once the Bluetooth connection is made, it is never interrupted! I use in class at USC where I teach computer science and it has changed the way I can teach the class. I wished I had found it before. I also use it for business presentations and again it has performed flawlessly all the time.

    Highly recommended!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The cordless presenter is a very nice product
    I've just received my cordless presenter from Amazon, and it seems like a great product. I've got a laptop with Windows 2000, and when I plugged the Bluetooth receiver in the USB port it immediately recognized the new hardware and installed a driver without rebooting. I then turned on the presenter and voila: it worked perfectly. Even several combinations of sleeping my laptop, unplugging the Bluetooth receiver and turning the presenter on and off couldn't fool the hardware: it always worked when it should. That is a minor miracle for Windows, and should not be undervalued. I never had to install the Logitech software, which I view as a good thing.

    In terms of the presenter itself, I think the feel of it is pretty good. The laser trigger on the underside is never shown in product pictures, so that was the big unknown in buying it. The trigger is fairly flat, but it is very pressure sensitive. I had hoped for a more substantial resistance, but I don't seem to be setting if off unintentionally. It falls right under my middle finger, with my index finger supporting the front of the presenter so that the trigger is not accidentally depressed.

    The laser quality seems good enough, but it is not as good as the laser pointer I have already. The beam is more focused (good), but the intensity is less (bad). I don't think I'll have trouble with it.

    When used as an optical mouse, the action is very good. My only complaint in this regard is that it is slightly heavier than I'd like.

    All in all, I think this is a very nice device for people that have to make presentations frequently, and worth the money.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good idea. Not perfect- but the best thing out there.
    Pros:
    - Everything is in 1 package - laser pointer, mouse, powerpoint controller. For road warriors this is important.
    - Wireless.
    - Battery life is excellent.

    Cons:
    - Mouse driver seems to forget to load unless you login to your computer with the wireless USB dongle plugged in already.
    - Mouse is difficult to wield in the hand. It doesn't seem to glide on the table smoothly.
    - Would have prefered a shorter, wider mouse rather than a long thin one. Long thin form makes it difficult to use as a table top mouse.
    - Pricey. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but...
    ...there are some big probs. I really like the cordless feature. Yet after using the keyboard and mouse for several months, I just can't get accustomed to the problems. I've given up and switched back to my old MS Natural.

    Problems...
    1. As mentioned elsewhere, the home-end-page up-page down layout is VERY awkward.
    2. The layout of the remaining buttons is also very weird. I still find myself hitting buttons that I don't mean to hit.
    3. MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE: The mouse is a major battery drain. I use my computer heavily and have had to change the batteries (2xAA) every 3-4 weeks. It appears the mouse doesn't have a true "stand-by" mode: the optical scanner seemed to be blinking all the time, even when I hadn't been using the mouse for several hours.

    If it weren't for the battery-drain problem, I think I would have tried to stick it out, because I really do like the cordless feature. And I really like the keyboard's solid feel. But I'm tired of having to replace the batteries, and I still haven't gotten used to the home-end button layout. I don't recommend this keyboard, but if you're willing to shell out for batteries maybe you'll like it.

    .
    I was wary of this package after reading the bad reviews by recent customers here, especially the comments about the awkward key layout. I went ahead because I use a keyboard 8 hours a day or more, practically every day of my life, and I want comfort, wirelessness, and the kind of functionality Mac users usually demand.

    The page-up/down keys are unusually placed, but anyone who spends time with the board will get muscular memory going in a short time. I hit those keys without looking any time I choose. It took a day to master without misses.

    This keyboard is better than any other I have ever used - full sized, compact, corded or cordless, adb or USB, - I've used them all. This one has the wrap-around key layout that keeps my wrists straight, and a wrist rest that absolutely prevents forearm fatigue I usually get after an hour or so of keyboarding. The key action is wonderful, providing the resilient resistance that makes touch-typing easy and error-less.

    The mouse was a wash; it's in the trash, but I didn't buy a mouse; I bought a keyboard. I still use my Kensington wireless, which has superior tracking and accelleration. It's been over a month on the original batteries that came with with the keyboard, two AA's, which makes it dirt cheap to keep in power. Battery consumption is low. The board is a little narrower than some other ergonomic boards, which means it will fit on my lap regardless of which chair I use, wide or narrow.

    All in all, this is one of the better purchases I've ever made, and I recommend this keyboard to anyone with high expectations for computer hardware. This is a professional level board, possibly the best there is.

    5-0 out of 5 stars owesome product!!!
    I highly recomemd this product.As fare as I'm concern is best deal for the money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No flaws comfort. What these devices SHOULD be.
    I'd been wanting to get an ergonomic keyboard for some time, as I type an awful lot and I thought I'd give it a try. I found this Logitech combo (Logitech's a name I've used and found dependable) that was cordless to boot, and perfectly competitive price-wise with wired devices from other makers. I couldn't be happier. I can't believe I waited so long to go ergo, and to go cordless for that matter (well, cordless headphones still suck). This combo has worked flawlessly for me. The software is just perfect, letting me adapt all buttons on mouse and keyboard to my needs--on a Mac no less, the last, and only, bastion of one-button mouse design. I tested the keyboard to see how well I could send commands from a distance. I was amazed to find that not only did it work wihout a hitch at 6 feet or more, but also even facing in the opposite direction against a wall. I think these products prove beyond a doubt that cordless input devices have finally made it--prove to me at least for sure. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great product, software needs updating
    I ordered this keyboard to replace my Adesso, which became obsolete when I bought my new G5; and it is indeed terrific: however, the software that comes with it was terrible; I thought I was going to have to send it back, because the characters were all wrong, until I thought to go to the Logitech website and download a new driver. That one worked, and my keyboard and mouse both are great, atlhough without the wonderful ergonomic touch of the Adesso. Thanks to all those who gave this product reviews, it really helped me make the decision. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great addition to my computer
    I've always liked the idea of a cordless mouse, but the one my parents used made me nervous about buying one. But this mouse has worked wonderfully. No cord adds a level of convenience that I've never had before. Other cordless mouse I've used went through batteries in a matter of days, but not this one. The battery life is long. It has a elegant, sleek design, so it looks great on your desk. This is my first optical mouse and I can't see ever going back. No ball to clean and I've found that the movements of the cursor are just as smooth as my old mouse, maybe even smoother (and I've had no problems on a black surface). The only fault I have found so far is the wheel which seems to move the screen in too-large-chunks. But I think this mouse is great.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No more mouse cleaning!
    What a relief to have a mouse which I don't have to clean the dirt out of! I got tired of having to occasionally clean the dirt (lint, dust) out of my old mouse so it can work properly again. This mouse is built differently underneath so it doesn't collect any dirt. The only thing you have to worry about is if the battery is running low. Your computer will notify you when the battery is running low, or you can simply click an icon on your desktop to check the battery level. The batteries seem to last a month or up to two months, depending on your computer usage. You might want to invest in a battery charger and rechargeable batteries so you don't have to keep buying batteries so much (you most likely use batteries for other items in your home too) throughout the year.

    Of course the best feature for this mouse is that it's cordless. That's one less wire on your desk to get cluttered, entagled with. The equipment and software is fairly easy to install/use on your computer. I've noticed that the price for this item has dropped a bit since I bought it so this a better buy than ever.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A decent mouse but can improve
    I have been using a touchpad for the past 2 years. I bought this mouse for my wife and tried it for the first few days. On Windows XP, the install is clean. But I was surprised to see that this mouse does not ship with a mousepad. An Optical mouse by virtue of it's technology should be used on a specific surface otherwise it results in a jerky movement. Also there was no instructions whatsoever to suggest the kind of surface to be used on.

    It is very sensitive and people used to traditional mice or touchpads will take time to adjust.

    5-0 out of 5 stars best mouse I've had yet
    I was a little wary of a mouse that was so cheap, but I picked up mine over a year ago on sale at an office store after a little mouse-meets-wall explosion when my old mouse (a regular corded mouse with a ball) stopped working.

    I would have gotten something more expensive, having learned that cheap electronics are their own punishment, but I had a project due and NO extra money, so I settled on this little guy. I am glad that I did - it has been the best mouse I've ever had. The one POSSIBLE problem is that you have to replace the batteries, but hey, until they can power mice with tiny little internal nuclear reactors, I'll deal with changing my batteries (which happens MAYBE every 3-4 months for me).

    If you have some sort of deranged problem with changing batteries, or if you are willing to pay around a hundred bucks for a mouse, don't get this one. Otherwise, if you're just looking for something that will outperform your outdated old mouse for very few dollars, this is so worth it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great cordless optical mouse
    Okay gang I've been using this mouse at work for nearly a year. I'm a software engineer and use it every day for 8 hours. It operates flawlessly. I don't go through batteries at all like some have mentioned. My solution is a couple sets of rechargeable batteries. They work like a charm! The first time your battery goes dead it's a little frustrating. The mouse stops moving and you think your machine is locked up. So if your mouse disappears or quits moving just slap in a fresh pair of batteries and you're on your way again. I just ordered a second one for my home PC that's how good they are. ... Read more
