From the Manufacturer
| Now You Have One Less Thing to Carry |
When you need to grab your laptop and take it to another room or into a meeting, just slide your V550 Nano onto its dock and go. The Clip-and-Go dock makes it easy to attach your mouse to your laptop, and because the wireless nano-receiver is so small, you can leave it plugged into your laptop all the time. With the V550 Nano, you can keep one hand free to grab that all-important cup of coffee.
| Clip-and-Go Dock That Lets You Snap Your Mouse Onto Your Laptop |
Now you have one less thing to carry around your home or office. The Clip-and-Go dock attaches easily to your laptop, so when you're ready to move, just clip your mouse onto the dock and go. And the mouse turns off automatically when attached, helping save battery life.
| Extra-Long Battery Life (Up to 18 Months) and Low-Battery Indicator |
Advanced battery management technologies mean that batteries will last up to 18 months. That's a year and a half before you need to change batteries. And the convenient LED battery level indicator notifies you when batteries are low.
| Plug-and-Forget Nano-Receiver That's So Small, It Stays in Your Laptop |
The wireless nano-receiver is small enough to stay in your laptop and even when you pack your laptop away--so it's easy to just plug the receiver in and forget about it.
| Hyper-Fast Scrolling for Flying through Documents and Web Pages |
The hyper-fast scroll wheel lets you fly through documents and Web pages in just seconds. One spin and you'll never go back to an ordinary scroll wheel.
| Advanced 2.4 GHz Cordless Technology for More Robust, Reliable Performance |
Logitech's new 2.4 GHz cordless wireless technology gives you more robust, more reliable performance than previous-generation technologies and with virtually no delays or drop-outs.
| Superior Laser Precision for Smoother Tracking on Virtually Any Surface |
Logitech's advanced laser technology works smoothly and effortlessly on virtually any surface, giving you a level of control many times more precise than an optical mouse.

Without any extra software, only the basic functions -- left/right buttons and the up/down scroll wheel motion -- are recognized. The mouse also has a "Switch Application" button just below the scroll wheel, and you can also tilt the scroll wheel to left and right. To access those extra functions, you'll have to go to Logitech website and download Logitech Control Center. The installation is simple, but it does require a reboot. It's all worth it though.
The software is accessed via System Preferences, and it allows you to configure just about everything you can think of. Buttons can be assigned different functions or keystrokes (I have the "Switch Application" button assigned to Exposé -- very useful), and same with tilting scroll wheel left or right. Even the scroll wheel itself can be configured to, say, change volume instead of scrolling up or down. Scroll wheel's scrolling speed can be adjusted too.
And all of that can be configured on a per-application basis. For example, when I'm using my web browser, I set the scroll wheel to scroll faster than usual, and configured the scroll wheel tilt to send to back/forward keystrokes.
For a mouse with only one extra button, the extra functionality of wheel tilt and the flexible configuration was a very pleasant surprise for me.
The software also shows you the remaining battery life. Mine says 544 days left. Wow.
Physically, the mouse is definitely on a smaller side. Before this one, I was using a much bigger mouse which I could comfortably rest my hand on. (I have moderate-sized hands -- measuring about 7-1/2 inches from the wrist to the tip of my middle finger) At first, V550's small size felt a bit awkward, but after a day's use, I found myself using it very comfortably.
Also, I have to mention that I *love* the tactile feel of the scroll wheel. It's hard to explain, but it has just the right amount of resistance. I'm sure this is all very subjective, and others may not feel the same, but I still felt it warranted a mention.
All in all, I'm extremely satisfied with my new V550. If I ever lose it somehow, I won't hesitate to buy it again.

This mouse clips easily to the lid of my laptop and the buttons cannot be accidentally activated when it's clipped in. It actually comes with *three* of the clippy docks, so you can put them on multiple computers. The mouse itself is small but has a very substantial weight and comfortable feel in my larger hands. I'm finding that I really like the choice of scrolling modes: you can use the scrolling wheel click-by-click as with most other mice, or press it to switch to a smooth-scrolling mode. I haven't owned it long enough to find out how good the battery life is.
It's a great product. If I *had* to ding it somewhere? The USB nano receiver is not really very "nano"... it sticks out of the side of the laptop by nearly 1cm. I've seen smaller Bluetooth receivers, for example. Not a big deal so far, but it increases the chance that it might get snagged on something. It'd be nice to have a Bluetooth version of this mouse, although that might impact battery life and make it more expensive.
