Cool Stuff – Logitech Mighty Mouse – MX Revolution

Spin your wheels

Optical is out, laser is in. Logitech’s latest mouse, the MX Revolution, is the “world’s most advanced mouse.” The state of the art laser guided tracking system is 20 times more accurate than the average optical mouse. The laser technology enables the cordless mouse to detect small movements over any surface, from your desk to your carpet, unlike an optical mouse which is limited by the LED light.

The hyper-scrolling feature lets you zip through long documents and the SmartShift technology automatically applies the scrolling mode that best fits your current application. The alloy wheel spins for seven seconds in free-spin mode, scrolling through hundreds of pages or thousands of rows while the click-to-click mode allows for more detailed navigation.

Just above the thumb rest is another scroll wheel that lets you flip between documents to compare or check email. The rechargeable Li-Ion battery with a 4-stage battery level meter lets you know when it's time to recharge, which is easily done when docked in the base station. Simply by highlighting a word or phrase in your document, the One-Touch search feature will display results from your favorite search engine.

The MX Revolution comes with a three year limited hardware warranty and is available online and in a few select electronic stores. This is one of Logitech’s best products, useable by both Windows XP (and the new Vista) and Mac OSX, but its ergonomic shape is best suited for right handed users. The steep price at $99.99 and up, might deter some buyers but the ‘smarter faster’ innovation just might pay off in the end.
