This mouse has held up to FIVE YEARS of serious abuse on the road with my Macbook Pro under WinXP, Win7, Mint Linux and OS X. After being crushed in backpacks and dropped onto hotel floors, the tracking, buttons and scroll wheel still work as they should. On an Apple machine with only two USB ports, not needing a dongle is a major selling feature. The mouse is a bit small for portability's sake, but the shape sits very comfortably in my man-hand. The two AA batteries are easily replaceable, however don't bother hauling a spare set because they last forever. The LED indicator is clear and informative, but mostly invisible as it should be.

Not sure why this mouse has so many glowing reviews at .com but only a few one-stars here on .ca. Other than the typical occasional Bluetooth glitch, my experience has been relatively trouble free. I believe it goes into standby and disconnects after several hours; cycling the power switch off/on gets it back, and can also resolve any occasional bout of interference/choppyness. It has needed to be deleted/readded a handful of times but nothing tragic, generally pairs without issue. I had a power management problem under Linux which required some (ACPI?) flag tweaking. Also successfully used this mouse with a Cubieboard running Debian, Android phones and my desktop with a variety of cheap dongles.

I have owned this mouse for more than a year. I bought it after viewing very positive reviews on web however I am regretting my decision of purchasing this mouse because it disconnects every now and then. I have to turn it off and on again to reconnect via bluetooth. Second flaw in this mouse is that the cursor movement is not continuous, for example if I move mouse from one point to another then the cursor stops moving for a microsecond and then jumps ahead to catch mouse's movement. It is also very annoying to do precision tasks with this mouse because pointer lags behind the physical movement of mouse.
I have no other issues except the two I mentioned above. But these two issues ruin whole experience.

Good seller, fast shipping, but this is a bad product from Logitech.
Working good in Mac or Windows 7 32 bits, but freeze in Windows 7 64 bits. A driver issue from Logitech.

Worth the Money Oct. 13 2007

I wanted a mouse for my Macbook that did not require me to plug in a dongle. Therefore, a bluetooth mouse was my obvious choice. I heard about this mouse some months before it was available for purchase. It has bluetooth and laser. I am glad I waited for this mouse - it is great. It does what a mouse should without having to fuss with it or deal with all kinds of uneeded "features". Logitech once again came up with a winner.

It was recognized easily by my Macbook and worked perfectly without having to tweak anything. Contrary to what some reviewers say about laser mice, this mouse is not too sensitive. Scrolling is smooth and accurate. There is a slight delay when the computer starts for bluetooth to recognize the mouse, but this is negligible.

There is an on-off switch to conserve the battery -- very nice! Also, it is white to match my Macbook. I have had this mouse about a week and have not discovered any negatives. I love it.

(Update after 3 months of use: The mouse has performed amazingly. It is a joy to use and travels well with my MacBook. I bought this in November and have used it every day. Now (February), I finally get the low battery indicator. The batteries lasted a very long time (and I do not shut the mouse down often. If you have a MacBook, this mouse is a great addition to it. You won't be sorry.)

I just got my white MacBook today and connected the Logitech V470 to it. After a few minutes of mousing around, the computer for some reason lost the connection. I suspect it was my fault as I was messing with the preferences trying to learn Apple Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard's features. I re-attached it and since then it has not given me any problems. The computer sleeps and wakes up and the mouse just works almost instantly. It is smooth and works well. The mouse design fits the white MacBook perfectly. I have large hands and even though this mouse is smaller than a standard mouse, the fit is comfortable. It is amazing not to have cords or dongles cluttering your desktop. I highly recommend it. Given the horrible reviews of the Logitech software, I never installed the CD that came with it. It works very well without it. Option-scroll wheel zooms on the whole screen, the tilt wheel scrolls horizontally -- It simply works.

Could be better, could be worse Oct. 7 2008
By Peter Norby - Published on
This is the second bluetooth mouse that I've tried (the other being the Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Mac/Win) as a full-time mouse companion for my Apple BT keyboard. To its credit, the mouse maintains a connection better than the MSFT mouse (i.e. it reconnects at all), though as mentioned by other reviewers, it's definitely more sluggish to respond from sleep (and quicker to go to sleep) than the Apple counterparts. That said, the ergonomics are only slightly better than Apple's mice and my hands get cramped if I use it for more than a couple of hours in a row (i.e. heavy photo editing or similar).

Pros: bluetooth, portable, works, even comes with a bag.

Cons: Logitech software kills Growl - a known issue on their end which they have no intention of fixing. So you have to choose between growl working, or being able to customize the buttons/wheel (though OSX seems to do a decent enough of a job of this on its own - there are no fancy side buttons). As another reviewer mentioned, the black stuff on the side is coming off, which just feels unsettling, even if it is just cosmetic.

So overall? I'm still using it, though I can't say that I'm necessarily "happy" with it. It beats the competition, though that's an extremely low bar with few contenders. Maybe in a few years...

Battery Life

My son runs off with it sometimes since there is no cord attaching it to the computer
Sometimes takes a second to wake up when it has gone to sleep

Who should buy this mouse? Anyone looking for an accurate wireless mouse for a Desktop or Laptop that wants to keep a USB port free.

My largest complaint with wireless mice is they use proprietary wireless formats that requires you to tie up a USB port with the receiver. This one does not. It uses Bluetooth that comes built into most newer computers, and it works great. To get it working on my iMac, all I had to do was put in the batteries and turn it on. The computer discovered it right away.

I have been using it for a month straight and I am still on the first set of batteries. This is far better than the Bluetooth Apple mouse I had. The movement of the cursor is precise, and everything works great. The feel of the buttons and scroll wheels is great (better than the mighty mouse in my opinion).

This mouse is the best investment in a mouse that I have made in years, and it frees up a USB port, and those with iMacs know we don't have enough powered ports. It was worth every penny.

I use this mouse without installing any of the software that came with it.
