About a month ago, I picked up the Logitech VX Revolution cordless laser mouse. It is the laptop version, the little brother of MX Revolution mouse for desktop. Logitech labels the MX Revolution to be “the world’s most advanced mouse” and so for the VX, it’s the ultimate laptop mouse.
I bought this to use with my Vostro 1700 laptop but I found my hand so comfortable with it, I’m now using it as my primary mouse for desktop. The precision is excellent. I use it a lot with graphic designing. VX Revolution is not as small as all other laptop mice but it’s not a full sized regular mouse either. Its size and ergonomic design fits nicely with my small hand.It has a lot of cool features and my favorite are:
- MicroGear™ Precision scroll wheel – which lets you scroll documents really fast. It’s really handy if you’re scrolling with long documents like ebooks or scrolling a long blog.
- One Touch Search – A very helpful button which allows you to open your default browser. You can also set which search engine you want to load with the browser. Another cool thing is when you’re browsing and you came across a word or a phrase that you would like to know more about, instead of highlighting and copy pasting, you can just highlight it and click the one touch search button.
- Storable micro receiver – The usb receiver is really small and VX Revolution has a little compartment where you can insert it when not use. It’s a very slick new feature from Logitech.
Two more buttons that I use are the Zoom In – Zoom Out button which I only use when I want to increase the text of a web page. Then there’s the Back/Forward button that I use to navigate web pages back and forth.
Price: Php 3650. It’s a bit expensive but it’s worth the investment.
Overall, I’m really happy with my new mouse. It looks really nice, comfortable, filled with cool feature, cordless, and it just works well. :)
