At the time of writing this review, the MX Revolution is the most advanced mouse from Logitech. I have used the MX Revolution a lot, and it also feels good. However, the MX Revolution has quality problems that this mouse will not have, simply because the MX1000 has fewer moving parts. You should expect all of these Logitech laser wireless mice to break down in a year's time, but the average life of the MX Revolution seems to be around three or four months. If you are heavy mouse user and want a truly indestructible mouse, a corded optical mouse is your best bet.
Another downside of the MX1000, and all Logitech mice, is the necessity of using SetPoint to activate the extra features. I find it best to install as few drivers on my computer as possible, and I actually do not use SetPoint; the basic mouse features, complemented by the nice fit in hand, are good enough for me.
Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000, every cursor move became fluid and precise and I loved it. There is one category in which the mX1000 disappoints, battery life. After several months of use I noticed that the recharge hold went down from four to five days to only three (I'm a very heavy computer user, over five hours a day). Even with regular recharge cycles and the best of care, the batteries, after only two months would only hold a charge or three days. Now I understand that eventually the charge has to die out but come on, three days? Even though I'm such a heavy computer user, the mouse did drop in charge hold two days less than it originally was, even with regular recharge cycles.
Overall: The MX1000 is my favorite mouse and I love it's design, shape, weight, and every thing else about it. But I hate the battery, it would have gotten five stars if the battery life were improved or the battery didn't wear out so quickly. I am now using the Logitech New G5, very similar to the MX1000 but it's wired.
I had no problems setting up the mouse or installing the software. The cursor movement is extremely accurate and responsive to very slow movements, which is what I needed for my detailed drawing and digital photography work (tracing around objects, etc). I am not a gamer, so can't speak to its use for gaming. I have the receiver/charger positioned about 16 inches away from the mouse, and have no problems whatsoever with reception or dropouts. The mouse goes to sleep after 10 seconds of non-movement, but wakes up and moves the cursor instantly when moved so this is not a problem. This must also save the battery, because I have yet to see it drop off of full-charge indication (I leave the mouse on the desk about 12 hours each day and return it to the charger each night when I shut down my PC).
I highly recommend this mouse, as long as it remains available.
HERE'S A TIP: If you think you want this mouse, buy it quick from Amazon, because it is no longer available to order from many other stores).
On the plus side, the extra buttons such as back and forward are useful. The battery life indicator is a big plus since you don't want to run for new batteries in the middle of your work. Battery life so far seems adequate as I can go a week of normal use before recharging. I don't think laser precision will benefit many people.
Logitech has done it again.
The battery lasts for weeks. (Days if I'm doing some graphics work, as it gets heavy use) I don't normally park it in the charging base because I don't need to until I get a warning that the battery is low or I am expecting to do a lot of work. Charge time is rather quick too.
Response time is great, there is no coming out of sleep delay like with a MS cordless mouse I had previously.
This mouse also works great in Ubuntu Linux (All buttons and the scroll wheel).
Some people have reported the cursor jumping around the screen unpredictably. I have seen that several times. but it usually means that there is something caught near the sensor. I just blew on the bottom of the mouse to clear it out.
