I’ve got to say that I have been more than extremely happy with my new Logitech VX Nano mouse. It’s got loads of features that I’ve enjoyed and a number of other ones that I haven’t even become familiar with or started using regularly.
One of the features that was actually key for me was the ability to actually turn off the mouse with some kind of button. My old mouse would just go to sleep supposedly when no movement occurred, which was nice except that when I put it in my backpack there was usually lots of movement that occurred. My daughter would say “Daddy, your backpack has a red light on inside it”. Which of course was the mouse laser proudly proclaiming it was indeed powered up and ready to point and click.
I don’t have that issue at all with the Logitech VX Nano. When I say “Off” (okay, not actually when I say off, but when I push the button) it’s off. I have come across a little bit of a frustration though in it’s “critical battery alert”. It’s warning me that the batteries are at critical power, but tells me I’ve got four days left of use. To me, four days left isn’t critical. Maybe a day is fine because finding a AAA battery really isn’t too difficult of an objective that it will take me a few days to accomplish.
I’ve also got no way to adjust this alert’s timing other than for it to tell me I have 10% power remaining, which equates to 4 days in their algorithm I guess. What I want to adjust is the actual day or percentage to warn me.
But hey! Other than that, I love my Logitech VX Nano, this along with a couple of other previous Logitech purchases makes me eager to look for other devices. I think I’m in a real need for a laptop web-cam.
