Got the silver one for my wife to match her new Dell Laptop. Vista recognized it immediately! She has used it as a hand held 'clicker' for advancing some PowerPoint persentations she gave. The left button advanced the slides and the wheel allowed her to scroll back or forward in the presentation (without having it on a tabletop).
I got the black one for use with my laptop, XP recognized it immediately. I have used this now for about a month, couple hours every day. There is a small button on the bottom to 'turn off the mouse' next to the button is a green led which will slowly fade out when it is turned off. The green LED on the top will light up as soon as my laptop boots up and it senses the wireless connection. When the PC goes to sleep, so does the mouse! As soon as the PC wakes up, the mouse comes back to life.
We are both very satisfied with this mouse and HIGHLY recommend it to others.
Cons: I wish Logitech had made the scroll wheel a little more robust feeling. It's satisfactory, but it feels a little cheepy when you scroll (the model up from the V450 fixes this but Logitech should really put the nicer wheel on all their mice). The side to side click functions of the scroll wheel work nicely but the wheel's downward click function feels very stiff. Still, it's a super great mouse and I don't regret the purchase in the least.
The Nano offers the convenience of cordless mouse operation to any computer (laptop OR desktop) that can spare a USB port. It performs flawlessly on any solid surface I've tested it so far. Its size is a little smaller than what I would consider a 'regular' size mouse.
Other notable features include: quick and easy plug-and-play setup (no disk), 1 year+ claimed battery life, the ability to mount a hook on a laptop lid to dock the mouse, extended features and customization can be achieved by downloading and installing Logitech software.
If what you need is a cordless mouse, it can't get much better than this.
THE EXTENDED EVALUATION
What you get is the mouse itself, the small receiver that plugs into a USB port, a customized USB extension wire that allows you to have the receiver on the desk if the mouse is used with a desktop computer, 2 AA batteries, a mouse docking kit so that the mouse can be carried with the laptop and a glossy, multiple-languages setup/troubleshooting/dock mounting-removing quick reference sheet. There's also a small tin case that includes the mouse dock mounting/removal kit.
As I stated above, the mouse is a bit smaller than 'normal' size. It feels smallish in my hands (I am 6'2") but it may feel just right to most users. Form-wise, it's as perfect as it can be for a 2-button/wheeled mouse.Read more ›
In addition to everything the V450 Nano does, the VX adds:
Hyperfast scrolling. Once I started using it, click scrolling felt like stepping back to the dark ages. If it turns out that you don't like hyperfast scrolling, the VX Nano has click scrolling, too.
Programmable buttons. I feel disoriented when I use a mouse without them. For example, I use Firefox as my browser and often have many tabs open at once. I have the button behind the scroll wheel programmed to generate a Ctrl-W, which closes the current tab without having to move to the keyboard or click on the white X in the red box.
1. Bluetooth saps mouse batteries --> Battery life for most Bluetooth mice is <3 months.
2. Occasional loss of connectivity --> Particularly when waking up your computer from sleep/screensaver.
3. Relatively more expensive --> With no real gain in functionality over traditional wireless receivers.
This Logitech V450 mouse feels solid and fits nicely in the palm of my average-sized hand. You don't realize how important it is to have a mouse that at least meets your palm until you start using a smaller or flatter mouse for a long time. (The VX Nano didn't quite "cup" my palm - it was too flat, and more expensive.)
Laser tracking on this V450 is dead on, even on my textured comforter cover. Mouse movements are smoother and more responsive than my current MS Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 (optical). Mouse buttons have a responsive, quiet click. Scroll wheel is easy to roll with soft, shallow ratcheting (no loud or coarse clicks, like on cheaper mice). Scrolling can be very fast, depending on your system settings.
