Last year i bought this mouse and wrote a review on it. I loved it at first, the concept of the free spin was amazing… but what about one year of usage ? Well… this mouse and the software that comes with it suck.
First you realize that the mouse is kinda really heavy, so that all movement after a long time of usage start being more hard to do (Especially for gamers).
Second after a short period of time, the longevity of your mouse battery get reduce enormously.
Third, i don’t know if its because i have windows 7 or because my mouse is broken, but my free spin is not working anymore, and that after i try every options made in the software, or the lots of forum without good solution (at that present time) i checked.
One year ago, the package also came with a Keyboard MX 5500.
Oh the keyboard … Well let’s say it also have his share of Crap.
First, They removed the NUM Lock bottom on the keypad and change it for a “Clear Calc”.
What the Fuck you will say… Yeah. “Clear Calc” is used to do a clear on the “calculator mode” that appear on the screen of your keyboard. Stupidest idea of the whole decade. You replace a key, that is often used by a majority of people, by a key, that is used only for the screen of the keyboard (which by the way, I almost never used (you can count the number of times on my left hand)).
Why they did that ? You have already a calculator software on every single and respectable Operating systems !!!!
Second, the key gets worn after a year. They start to become hard to use, they stick on the keyboard (it’s not due to beer or any liquid that felt on it.).
Third, The arrow key are kinda curved. So the surface of the “up arrow” is higher then the surface of the “down arrow“. Witch is really a pain in the ass when you use those in a different angle than one you use generally with your keyboard.
But, i will still give a chance to Logitech on my future keyboard and mouse purchase. They used to make good hardware and software in the past. Let’s see if the next set i will buy will be able to get me enough satisfaction to keep me as a customer to them.
Cheers everyone !
