Logitech VX Revolution 'freewheeling' cordless mouse

There is a review of the Logitech VX Revolution over at The Register. The big thing this mouse brings to the party is, apparently, an improved scroll wheel design

Seems abit pricey for what it is, but maybe um wrong.
Never tried an expensive mouse only cheap ****e one's, maybe one day i'll spring for a good one and realise how bad bad one's are.
Think i'll just stick to holding the scroll wheel down and moving mouse to get to bottom of page quickly

Hmm. Just thought of a major downside for gamers. I (and most FPS players I know) use the scroll wheel for changing weapons. It's quick, easy, etc. Well, it would really suck if it just kept going. It would make changing weapons more like Roulette.

Yea, you can. The Logitech MX700 had it, the MX1000 had it. You hold the button and it scrolls at a constant speed up or down. This is nothing new.

I have it on my G7 as well, programmed to use the sensitivity buttons.

I have the same features on my MX518, i think we have enough Logitech mice to chose from at the moment to satisfy our needs. I got to say that mouse is repulsively ugly.

I am quite happy with my MX1000's cruise button....no need for crazy newfangled spin-happy wheels...

Here, here! Kudos to G7s. They're quite possibly the best mice out there.

As for this 'Revolution' mouse; it's damn ugly.

'nuff said.

oh. So you CAN"T just spin the wheel...ya gotta do other stuff. So how's that the same?


I'm not talking contsant speed...it will scroll @ whatever speed the wheel is moving...slow for slow, fast for fast, but unlike a traditional wheel that has "clicks" that stop the whell from spinning, this mouse will automatically pull back the "click", and let the wheel spin free, while if you use it under slower speeds, it performs as a traditional wheel will.

Its better. It lets you do other things with your left click finger while scrolling.
