It works great and has good bluetooth sensitivity. I was able to control the cursor from more than 10 feet away from the computer. I like the size and the finish of the device. A little pricey, but it's worth it if I don't have to use the trackpad.
BTW, I also installed Windows XP Pro on the MacBook and the Logitech V-270 also works on the Windows partition of the hard drive.

After returning the mouse I contacted Logitech and asked if there was a way to disable the stand-by mode. Here is what they had to say (I haven't tried since I no longer have the mouse):
Thank you for your recent inquiry about your Pointing Devices.
I understand that the Logitech V270 mouse goes to sleep mode too often.
Please note that the mouse will go to sleep mode if it is not used for few minutes to save the battery life. If you move the mouse or press the click button of the mouse, then it will come up from the sleep mode and then work as normal.
However, if you would like to disable the mouse entering the stand-by mode, then refer to the following steps:
a. Right click on My computer and select Properties.
b. Click on Hardware Tab.
c. Select Device Manager.
d. Click the + sign next to Mice and other pointing device.
e. Right click on the mouse you are using and properties.
f. Click on Power Management Tab.
g. Enable Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
h. Click OK.
I have been looking for a reliable Bluetooth mouse to use with my PowerBook for well over two years. I bought a Bluetake Bluetooth mouse in February of 2004 but had to return it. Even after Apple's spport people helped me download the latest and greatest Bluetooth software, the Bluetake mouse would go into sleep mode and then would not work again until it was reinstalled -- not good. For reasons that are obvious I returned the Bluetake, for which I had paid nearly $70 for credit.
I did not buy another Bluetooth mouse until I decided to give the V270 a try. The online reviews of every other Bluetooth mouse were far too negative for me to be willing to take a chance on. But then I found the V270, for less than $40, and saw many enthusiastic reviews written by other Apple laptop owners whose machines include a built in Bluetooth receiver. I agree with them and then some. I could not have asked for more from this mouse. Highly recommended!
The first thing you will more than likely notice when holding this mouse is the way it fits your hand. It's not obsurdly small like some other notebook mice and it is no where near big. I've read where some reviews think the mouse is "too tall" to fit in their notebook cases. I personally find that may be true for the Mac notebook solutions but most other notebooks it will not be an issue. I own a Sony VAIO SZ-280P and the mouse is of the same thickness. It's designed to be confortable, so this means you need something to hold onto which it delivers that beautifully.
The setup on my notebook [which actually uses a Toshiba Bluetooth module] was fast and easy. Once it was setup with the bluetooth manager [which took all of 2 minutes] I can now turn on and off the mouse at any point and the notebook will detect it automatically within about 4-5 seconds [this may vary due to the notebook's refresh rate (how often the computer looks for devices)of the bluetooth manager]. Some reviews have noted that the mouse sometimes needs a second to respond. This second delay is the mouse 'waking up' from a soft sleep. Which nullfies the comment from another review stating that this device needs an 'auto off' function.Read more ›
