OK, I normally wouldn’t write about something as silly as a mouse for your laptop, but since my batteries just ran out and I’m about to snap….I realize how much I rely on this little device.
First a little background. I purchased this mouse approximately three years ago at my local Fry’s as a simple addition to my work laptop. Before owning this mouse I would occasionally use a wired mouse when sitting for a long time. I have used many different types of mice for my desktops over the years, including all of the great options that Apple has to offer.
Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let me just say that this little device, pictured here, does everything needed, and does it all flawlessly. It is small and easy to pack into any bag, but not so small that you end up with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome after one sitting. While it doesn’t have forty five buttons that just end up confusing you, it does take care of all the simple necessities: Left Click, Right Click, Scroll Both Directions, and a center Multi-Purpose button. In addition, the USB receiver slides seamlessly into the base of the mouse so that you don’t lose it during transport. When I get home at night, my laptop docks into my TV, and I can still use this amazing piece of equipment sitting fifteen feet away on my couch.
The long and short of this is that the Logitech V450 is the best mouse I have ever used and I would recommend it to everyone.
