The problem is that I've been trained over 20 years of muscle memory using other mice that the scroll wheel can be used as the middle mouse button. But on these newer Logitech mice with the "Hyper-fast scrolling", pressing down on the scroll wheel switches the wheel from the normal click-stop to a free-wheel style of rotation and does not click the middle button. It's an interesting idea, and if you don't use the middle mouse button often, then this is probably a really great feature.
However, I'm an engineer who spends a ton of time using a CAD system where the middle mouse button is used very frequently and I'm having a heck of a time adjusting to using the tiny little middle button that they've inconveniently placed behind the wheel. I routinely click the wheel, realize that it's not the button, release the wheel (which scrolls it), try to zoom back in to wherever I was, click the wheel again to set it back to the setting I had it on, hope it doesn't scroll the screen again, and then carefully click the tiny little button for a middle click. What a PITA.
I realize that this is probably not a problem for 95% of people who never use the middle button, but for those who do, BEWARE THIS LATEST CROP OF LOGITECH MICE with the "Hyper-fast scrolling". I love the mouse in every other aspect and really would like to continue using it, but the scroll wheel click issue makes me want to violently throw the thing against the nearest convenient brick wall every time it happens.
Conclusion: Great mouse in general, but think carefully before buying if you use the middle mouse button regularly.

Logitech does not have a solution to this problem, and it's a problem for several of their devices. If you search "anywhere mx left click" you will fully understand. For the record, this mouse has been well taken care of.
After 27 days, it began to freeze. At first, I thought it was a computer issue but everything else worked just fine - programs kept running, the keyboard worked... The mouse pointer, however, just stopped. No amount of movement or button-clicking had the slightest impact. I finally found that turning the mouse off, unplugging the USB, plugging it back in, and turning the mouse back on, OCCASIONALLY corrected the problem - usually after two or three tries. I managed to return it just inside the 30 day window.
For nearly $60, I expect functionality that lasts a little longer. Not taking a chance with another one of these - I'll try a different one this time.
Switching to the Anywhere MX from my faulty, clunky heap of a HP mouse has been like regaining the use of a limb after an extended period in a cast. It's really that good.
There is a lot to like with this mouse. First the "Darkfield" technology in this mouse is truly marvelous. This mouse, quite simply, works just about anywhere and on any surface. I use this mouse in my home office on my glass-top desk with nary a hiccup in tracking. I can throw this mouse in my laptop bag and head to a local coffee shop with stainless steel countertops and viola - no mouse pad required! I use the Anywhere MX at work too on surfaces ranging from plastics to wood conference tables and this little mouse has yet to let me down.
So you want to talk about range? Range this little mouse has in spades! Where my HP mouse threw fits if moved beyond a few inches from the USB receiver I've used the Anywhere MX about 10ft away from my laptop (giving a presentation on a projector) and this little mouse performed just fine. Also unlike my HP mouse which featured a full-sized USB receiver the Anywhere MX's Unifying receiver is miniscule by comparison. It's so small in fact that it's not necessary to remove it when porting around your laptop in a laptop bag. Though Logitech did design a cavity in the mouse to port around the receiver if you're so inclined. Accessing the storage compartment does require removing the back of the mouse in the same way that you'd replace the batteries.
The overall construction of the mouse is top-notch.Read more ›
