    Lightbulb Review: MX Revolution Mouse

    Cost:99.99 from any retailer, and the manufacturer (logitech)

    Irganomics: Fits my hand very nicely, I notice i sometimes drag my thumb, but this mouse has a thumb rest.

    Scroll wheel: Theres 2. The top one controls webpage scroll, and it tips left/right to side scroll. Its nice, but I really dont like how theres no stopping points. If I flick it, it goes for 15-20 seconds, so I have to make sure to be accurate, not just kinda shoot it forward and expect it to click 3-4 times and stop. Very precise and responsive. Side wheel: used for switching between applications. Press it in, flash back to the last application you were in, push wheel forward, cycle from left-right through all applications, pull wheel back to cycle right-left. Very nice to be able to do it all from your finger tips. my mouse is now for pointing, and clicking, I've managed to cut down a lot of anoying clicks.

    Other buttons: Forward backward button. It's by you're thumb, easy access, can easily navigate web pages, go back to a page, compare things, very fast switching. Search button: Highlight a word, press the "Search" button, and it Opens a new window and searches it with your favorite search engine. My review: im on a mac currently, just got it, so i can't set the search engine, so when i search a word it searches my hard drive for that word. It is a very nice button though, doesnt get in the way of anything.

    Response: VERY GOOD! For wireless mouses, this is as good as it gets. Invisible 2k DPI mouse. Never had lag/unresponse from it, very very precise, still works perfectly 10 feet away from the recepter.

    Battery life: 36 hours! its great, it has a charging dock, fully charges in about 2-3 hours, i just stick it on over night, even on low battery it works well until the last 5 minutes of battery.

    Gaming value: I'd give it a 9.5/10. The thumb buttons are really great, youve got 3 unique controls in 1 little scroll bar. In counterstrike i program it for (push in) reload, (push forward) weapon (pull back) secondary weapon. Very precise, never had any problems with it.

    I am moving this to "Hardware" as I think that is where discussions about rodents belong

    EDIT: and how the World progresses? I have a pair of Razer "Boomslang" rodents.............. 2000DPI............... errr, they must be getting on for 9 years old?............

    My wife hates them

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Can't stand that boomslang stuff, myself. Totally wrong shape. The Logitech G5 is for me. The new one looks even cooler, though I haven't held one yet.

    i was afriad of buying this because of the thumb wheel. when i held it, the wheel was pushing against my thumb... making my overall grip awkward and angled to the right. know what i mean? i probably wouldnt be able to play and FPS's if im on a tilt.

    just a thought or 2.
