Last week, I received a gift package from Logitech. Inside the big box was a bunch of a Logitech products, including their new VX Revolution Laser laptop mouse (pictured above). I have been waiting for a mouse like this for a long time. Whenever possible, I use a full size desktop mouse with my notebook because a notebook mouse lacks a forward and back button.
Not only does the new Logitech VX Revolution laptop mouse add those missing buttons but also Logitech managed to add on a zoom and search button. The VX features Logitech’s innovative MicroGear precision scroll wheel that lets you fly through long documents at hyperspeed, or switch to precise click-to-click scrolling to navigate lists, slides, and image collections. The metal scroll wheel feels like a well-oiled gear!
The Logitech mouse is a bit bigger than the average notebook mouse but smaller than a desktop mouse. A single AA battery that should give the VX six months of battery life powers it. So far, I really enjoy using this mouse with my MSI notebook. It feels good to carry only one mouse in my mobile office instead of two.
The only downside I can see to the VX Revolution Laser is the price. I was at an Office Depot yesterday and saw that the mouse sells for $100CDN! That’s a lot of money to pay for any mouse, much less one for a notebook. On the good news side, a check of the TTZ Media price index shows the VX can be had in the US for less than $50. You people in the States always seem to get the better deals!
