What is your experience with the Logitech MX 1000 laser mouse?

I am mainly concerned about precision and physical ease of use. Is
it noticeably better than other mice you have owned? How much
better? Is picking up the mouse a problem? Do you have to pick up
the mouse less than with other mice?

And, of course, how is your MX1000 for gaining?

Thank you.

I am assuming you updated the drivers. In this thread, I am
inquiring about performance, not minor technical issues. System
issues come and go, and are very dependent on the user and his (or
her) computer.

From the standpoint of ergonomics, tracking, and overall performance,
the MX1000 is the best mouse I have ever used. I like the shape, feel,
and weight compared to all others. I use one at work and at home. I
must add, however, that I do more mosuing at work than at home and
frequently discover that the battery is running low (red) after as
little as 4 days. I have to remember to put it in the charger before I
go home at night. The good news is that it recharges pretty past. I
can go off to a meeting for a couple hours and it will be nearly fully
recharged by the time I get back. As for "gaining" (er, gaming) I'm not
a gamer so cannot comment. For business graphics and such it is a great
mouse.

It's the first wireless mouse I've used and it's great. I have never had any
problems with it when I'm gaming. I can go one to two weeks between charges,
depending on how often I use it. Plus it has an internal battery so you
don't need to spend money with a supply of batteries.

Skipping in games is only a problem if you're somebody who lifts the mouse
to reposition it in use (I don't). I'd say if you want to go cordless in
games the MX1000 is the only way to go. Its certainly better than the MX700
and before that a MS cordless mouse that I've used in the past.

What he said, plus it's the best gaming mouse I've ever used, period. At
home I only have to recharge it once a week & I use it a *lot*.

Still using and enjoying an old M$ Intellimouse Optical but I am looking at
the Logitech wireless keyboard *and* MX700 for £35 (the MX700 alone on the
same site is £41). Sounds like a good deal and I'm very tempted. The
MX1000 is £80-odd and I just dont see any mouse being worth that much money.

Ouch. I got my MX1000 a couple of months ago for around US$55. Once
again you Brits are getting shafted on tech product prices.

The MX1000 is a good mouse, accurate, sensitive, and, best of all,
rechargeable with a handy charge indicator. No batteries to deal with
which is the feature I was looking for. It is not, however, worth
80GBP (~US$145.00).

The only negative I see is the size of the mouse. It's big, wider and
taller, and takes some getting used to after switching from a smaller
mouse.

Any "gamer's" mouse comes with a cord - for a reason. I just dumped my
MX700 for the MX518.

I like to gather opinions from real people in unmoderated forums
like Usenet.

This is where everyone comes, especially after they get spanked
for saying something the moderator did not like on some moderated
forum. Then they come here and whine like a baby about it.

Do the research.

And please post in context if you want me/others to follow the
conversation.

No, because the MX518 and the Razor Diamondback are the most
responsive mouses money can buy and that's what a gamer wants.
Plus no more having to recharge the damn things. I got rid of my
wireless keyboard for that reason too. I had the keyboard die on me a
couple of times while playing BF1942 online, not fun when the only
recourse is to reach for the reset button on the front of your PC -
that's if your lucky enough to have a reset button. I went for a
Saitek Eclipse keyboard and dumped all my wireless devices.

That sounds odd.

There is a recent thread in the homebuilt PC group which mentions
that wireless keyboards under heavy use go for at least a year
between battery replacement. So we use alkaline batteries instead
of rechargeable.

If your gaming is such that one interruption per year causes
distress, you are a very serious gamer.
