Strengths: A solid feeling, truly portable wireless optical mouse. No problems with tracking or reception.

Weaknesses: Simple functions - two buttons and one wheel, but that's all I needed.

Summary: I tried an A4Tech wireless, which also tracked fine, but this feels better in the hand. I wanted the USB plug for my laptop, and it works great. There was no need to install the mouse software, XP recognized it immediately. Rechargeable batteries are NOT included (just two AA Duracells). I will use two AA Nimh that I have for my camera anyway. The on/off button is handy when you finish work, and put it into its snug neoprene carry pouch. Highly recommended!

Strengths: fast, sensitive, right size

Weaknesses: None

Summary: (Edited February 17th by kimkhusa) I believe this notebook mouse is one of the best I tried before. The size of the mouse is a little bit smaller than usual desktop mouse and it is very comfortable and accurate. The on/off switch helps to save battery. I strongly recommend this product.

Strengths: Easy to carry with free carrying case, precise movement, no bulky RF transmitter, truly cordless.

Weaknesses: Havent found any.

Summary: I purchased this mouse because I wanted a Logitech Mouse with a USB transmitter, and they have finally produced one. All of the other cordless mouses have a transmitter with a cord, so it is not turly cordless. I would recommend this mouse to anyone who travels with a laptop.

Strengths: Wireless. Very accurate. Just plug the USB receiver, press the connect button and voila! Perfect size for carrying around with your laptop and still be comfortable when using it.

Weaknesses: It needs 2 AA batteries which make it a bit heavy but at the same time stable. So I'm still not sure if this is a weakness. Middle wheel button it's a bit too stif.

Summary: It's a very comfortable ans stylish mouse. It just fits in my hand (ok, i have a small hand). But hey, the size it's just right for comfort and for carrying it around with your laptop. It also comes with a convenient carrying pocket.
Still, in regard to its shape, I think that the sort of bump in its back makes the wrist be a bit less relaxed than in the other models with a smoother shape. I shall see after using it for many hours in a row.
And if you don't want to depend on AA batteries and you are not going to carry it around, maybe you can consider the model with a craddle (MX 700 for example..).
Connection is very good and keeps ok up to 3 meters. You just connect it and here it goes! No need to adjust anything for my taste.
I haven't installed the software yet, so I cannot give my opinion on that.

Strengths: +Uses AA batteries; +Sturdy construction; +Plug-'n'-play with XP; +Only had to connect with the receiver on initial use.

Weaknesses: -Loud clicks; -USB reciever does not swivel.

Summary: I travel 100% for my job and bought the Targus wireless optical mouse first but switched to the Logitech for 3 reasons:
1. Logitech's 2 AAs are much easier to find when travelling in unfamiliar towns and last MUCH longer than Targus' 2 AAAs.
2. Logitech's zippered neoprene pouch is much more protective and secure than Targus' drawstring velvet pouch
3. Logitech has a more sturdy construction which I believe is worth the extra weight.

I wanted a wireless mouse so that I could carry my laptop from meeting to meeting without tripping on wires. As a result, my mouse gets banged around somewhat. The clasp on the battery cover on the Targus broke and the cover slides off whenever I touch the mouse. I had to tape the cover into place to use the mouse - making battery replacement a nightmare - and batteries have to be replaced far to often on the Targus to begin with! After more than a month my Logitech is still intact.

Strengths: This mouse is great, it is very responsive and requires no drivers

Weaknesses: The only thing that I do not like about this mouse is that the noise it makes when you click is a little loud. I am not sure though if you would call this a weekness.

Summary: The first nice thing about this mouse is that XP recognizes it as a HID compliant mouse so you do not need any drivers, just plug in the reviever and you are ready to go. It is perfect for a laptop and even comes with it's own carring case. I read a review that said a cordless mouse on a laptop is stupid, but I would have to disagree. My last mouse stopped working when I got a short in the cable to rolling it up to often, and with a cordless mouse I do not have to worry about this.

Strengths: Solid feel, well built, on-off switch, compact, good range.

Weaknesses: None observed.

Summary: I bought this mouse to use on a laptop that has only a touchpad. I chose this particular model of mouse because of its features and inclusion of an on-off switch to save the batteries when the mouse is packed away. My computer bag is also tight on space so the notebook size mouse was the perfect answer to my needs.

Strengths: Nice size. Flexability to move to either side of computer. I like to use the mouse in my left hand and my wife likes to use it with her right. This allows us to do that without the tangle of wires.

Weaknesses: None

Summary: Logitech makes great products. Eliminating the wires is a great idea. I have other Logitech products and they all work great. I recommend it to anyone.

Strengths: Easy to use, pretty much a plug-and-play. Accurate pointing. A space saver. ON-OFF switch can save battery life. Come with a pouch for carrying this mouse around...

Weaknesses: Sometimes the response is a bit slow.

Summary: I got my laptop for a while and was happy with the touchpad feature. However, it is kind of painful when I need to make graphs for presentations or photo-editing, if I can only use touchpad or trackpoint, so I decicded to buy a wireless mouse. I have pretty good confidence with Logitech products so I only looked for mouse made by this company. I chose this mouse for mainly two reasons. First, the USB reciver is like a flash memory key, very small and WITHOUT any wire thing hangang on my laptop---which lots of WIRELESS mice have wire thing attached to the reciver. Second, it has ON-OFF switch so I figured I can save battery life. Plus, it is an optical mouse. After I received this mouse, I just installed the battery, plug-in the USB key, it was ready to go. I did install the software comes with the mouse, but I found it is not necessary since I can configure everything I need using XP. Other than occasionally a bit slow response, I am very happy with this mouse. I never used any other wireless mouse, but I like this one very much... so far so good...

Strengths: On/Off Switch Compact in size, but feels sturdy. Worth every penny!

Weaknesses: None so far.

Summary: I bought this mouse based on the earlier reviews and I have no regrets. The mouse works great and feels comfortable (while feeling sturdy, imagine that!). I have tested other brands, but they don't feel as solid as this one does.

Strengths: Logitech quality, ease of installation, on/off switch, responsiveness.

Weaknesses: Are you kidding?

Summary: Don't ever let anyone dismiss a cordless mouse for laptops as unnecessary or redundant --- especially this one from Logitech. The optical sensor has a very responsive interaction with the USB RF receiver, and works on practically any surface and at any angle.
This is extremely useful when you're juggling the contents of your briefcase in the front seat of the car. The on/off switch is a great battery saver and the size of the mouse is not so small that you'll get palm cramps.

Strengths: Very easy to install and setup. I was up and running with this mouse in less than 10 minutes.

Weaknesses: The mouse is a little bulky since it uses 2 AA batteries.

Summary: A few weeks ago, I bought a discount cordless mouse for my laptop and it was rubbish - then I researched for a cordless mouse and the ratings were very good on this Logitech cordless mouse. I've had this mouse for a week and it has been working great for me. The on/off switch helps to save the batteries (as long as I remember to switch it off). Installation couldn't have been easier. I would definitely buy this Logitech mouse again.

Strengths: No cords at all, small size.

Weaknesses: does not scroll left/right

Summary: Although I've only had this mouse a day, I already like it better than the other mice I've used. Last night I was using my laptop PC while watching TV and did not have a table or desk nearby so was using it on my lap (hey, it's a laptop). I needed to scroll through some lists and point and click and do not like the little pointing pad that comes built in. There is just enough flat surface to run the mouse on the wrist support area of the keyboard. No cords is really handy with with a portable where there may not be a convenient spot to place the receiver. I have not had any issues with tracking or response speed and cost was reasonable.

Strengths: Flawless installation and operation. Great scroll wheel. Nice size/shape. Convenient carry pouch.

Weaknesses: Heavy batteries throw it a bit off-balance. Main buttons click somewhat loudly.

Summary: I bought this mouse for my notebook as an alternative to using the touch pad. I chose Logitech because I own and am very satisfied with their other optical and cordless mouse devices. This mouse is smaller than average, but still has a good feel. The batteries throw it a bit off-balance (perhaps lighter rechargeables would help). The buttons and scroll wheel provide positive tactile feedback. The left/right button click may be too loud for use in meetings. The middle button is quieter than the others. These can be reconfigured, if necessary. The scroll wheel feels and works great. The software and setup was quick and painless. The pouch is just big enough and of high quality. I can't comment directly on battery life, as I've owned the mouse for only 2 days. There is an on/off switch on the botton of the mouse which should help, but I can see this being easily forgotten. Overall, a very good product.

Strengths: Compact size, comes with a nice storage pouch, has an on/off switch, has decent range, feels like a full-size mouse.

Weaknesses: Can't really think of any.

Summary: The mouse is very easy to install. Just plug and play. It feels good in your hand and it doesn't feel like you need to hold on with just your fingertips, like some other mice. Using the trackpoint or touchpad is ok but having the mouse makes everything so much easier.

Strengths: Compact, on-off switch to conserve batteries, compact USB receiver, works well, storage pouch.

Weaknesses: If you could palm a basketball with one hand, this mouse is too SMALL for you

Summary: After 2 weeks, I liked the logitech cordless mouse for notebooks so much, I ordered another one for my other laptop. The mouse tracks very well, but occasionally on some really polished surfaces, it can be a bit (but not significantly) sluggish. Works great for everyday productivity applications, internet, email, etc. I don't play computer games, so can't comment on whether it works well enough for that.
