Logitech Optical Mouse

Logitech
Optical Wheel Mouse
Compatible with Windows and Macintosh

For sometime I had been having trouble with my old mouse sticking or moving in the wrong direction on the monitor. It was most annoying when working with detailing on an image with Adobe Photoshop.

I saw this mouse first advertised in our local news paper ad section and later in computer stories.
I liked the idea of never having to clean the track ball again. There was a five year limited warranty and it was not to expensive.If you are looking for a mouse that never needs to be cleaned, that is it has no ball under the mouse. It is accurate in movement I found as long as it is on a mouse pad. There are three moving parts and there all related to how you want to click the mouse. The design is comfortable and fits both right and left handed. There is an optical light on the bottom side of the mouse. When the mouse is not being used this light will go out. When the mouse is moved the bottom part of the mouse will glow. It looks pretty cool in the dark and the light too.

The mouse comes with mouse cd software but will work without on most plug and play computers. It runs on Windows 95/98 and Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000. Comes ready to use for USB but also has an adapter for PS/2 port. Macintosh is required to be running OS 8.6 or later and have a USB connection

By using the mouse software gives you more options. After installing the software you will be able to assign which will be the dominant click button. You have the left or right button as well as the wheel in the middle which can act like a third button.

Logitech makes a couple of different Optical mouse that will suit your needs. This mouse fits both left and right hand. Some of Logitech will only fit for the right hand. There is also a wireless mouse in this class. When your buying this product look for the flashing red light on the front of each package.

Over all I liked this product and all the information provided with the mouse. You get the mouse, cd software with excellent features. An instruction book that explains the software in plain and simple language. A booklet to inform you about how to get the best comfort while sitting in front of your computer. Also to complete your package is a pamphlet on other fine products by Logitech®
