My New Mouse Rocks - The Logitech VX
For a while I have been using the Apple Mighty Mouse, but it was working against me. After a few months of use, I had to constantly (several times a day) clean the little scroll ball, because it got dirty and would scroll. So I gave up on the cool looking, simplistic mouse for a more functional and sturdy one.
I bought the Logitech VX Revolution and after owning it for a couple months, I can say, I love it. Of course, like any new mouse, it took a couple weeks to get used to. But the features and durability rocks.
I am able to configure the dozens of buttons on this mouse on a per application basis. I actually just set them all to do the same thing for all applications. My most favorite features outside of the scroll wheel working are:
- Side buttons that allow me to use it to go forward or back in my browser - huge time saver
- Find button that I programmed to bring up dashboard
- Pressing the scroll wheel, does Expose on my Mac
- Left and right scrolling is neat in Photoshop
- Zoom buttons are nice
- Wireless is nice, no cords to trip over
