Logitech takes mousing to a new high with the wireless MX Air 8-button mouse! Not only does this mouse work with laser precision on your desktop, but it’s designed with a free space motion sensor, which allows you to mouse in the air, as well. You can adjust your PC-based media volume by waving the mouse to the left or right, and skip tracks with a flick of the wrist. The 2.4 GHz wireless receiver lets you navigate your media from up to 30 feet from your computer.

On the desktop, you get the tight, smooth cursor control and high-speed scrolling you’d expect from a premium Logitech mouse, and a slim, comfortable body for comfortable mousing. The included charger base keeps the mouse’s Li-ion battery fully-charged, so you’ll never suffer mouse-lag, and you can forget about monthly battery replacements. You’ll be glad you let your mouse leave the desk, once you experience Air mousing!

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Mouse

Pros: Logitech SetPoint software makes "set up" very easy.
Air mouse capabilities make this great for watching T.V. in bed.
Very stylish design.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this 7 months ago when it was on sale for $65.00. I only really use this mouse when I watch movies, which is fine considering that I spend most of my time playing videos on my computer. That being said, the regular mouse feature of the MX Air works perfectly.

(Playing Games is difficult when using it in freespace mode.)

4 out of 5 eggsMouse heaven!!

Pros: Got mine off fleabay for $99
I love this thing, i lack a table im my bedroom so i was never able to use a standard mouse, used a kensington orbit for a while but the cord was killing me and "it" lol

The MX AIR is really a beautiful piece of modern tech, from it's sleek elegant design to it's ease of use this mouse will liberate your bedroom media/gaming PC

very configurable, sure it will take you a few min to get used to it but then you fall in love...is it perfect? no but i feel by the next revision it just might reach perfection.

Cons: Short battery charge if used as a dedicated mouse, around 8 to 10 hours .
No UNIFYING support yet...
IF you think you can game with this mouse you are a FOOL, thats what wireless/wired 360 for windows control pads are for...
i suggest not dropping it.

Other Thoughts: Don't let the cons dissuade you, each one has a pro, for example "Short battery charge" BUT "Fast charging time"

Not for everyone but for those that it is...you will LOVE this thing! Pairs up great with Logitech K340 keyboard, match made in heaven if you got the 2 USB ports to spare.
This is not a typical air mouse LEARN how to use it, MOST complains are simply based on MISUNDERSTANDING the available features...example those complaining of it causing their arm to tire fail to understand that the MX AIR doesn't even need to be pointed at the screen!
LEARN IT'S NUANCES!

3 out of 5 eggsLove/Hate

Pros: Reliable, functional, very cool looking, plus you can use it in mid air at a distance! Works surprisingly well in mid-air. Love the virtual scroll wheel. Love the artificial clicking sound it makes as you scroll. Nice touch!

Cons: In all practicality, while I love this mouse and want to give it a 5 star rating, I can't. It's no good for gaming, because when using it on the desktop on a mousepad, it's too oddly shaped to be gripped comfortably. Also, something's slightly misaligned to where it rocks back and forth ever so slightly as if one of the teflon feet is a tad too long. If you try to use it as it was intended, in mid air, while gaming, you quickly discover that the mouse pointer pauses for a split second where you clicked before moving. There's good reason for this. Using the mouse in windows, you need that brief pause to help you stabilize the mouse so you can accurately double-click on a folder, but in the middle of a fast-paced game, this "feature" makes the mouse unusable. I wish there were some way to turn it off.

Other Thoughts: Logitech's setpoint software gives you several options, but little is mentioned in any of this mouse's literature about how to correctly use gestures (as demoed in a video), and which programs can use them vs which can't.

I'd give this mouse at LEASE one more star if logitech added the ability to turn off that split-second mid-air-click pause I mentioned. As I said, I understand what it's for, but if unless your gaming consists of nothing but Peggle and Plants vs Zombies, this is not the mouse for you.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Media Center Mouse

Pros: This mouse does something that still blows my mind, it is actually two mice in one. If you put it on a smooth surface and move it around as a normal mouse it is one with a 30 foot range. But pick it up and then it works in the air!

Also is rechargeable and the recharge base has a normal power cord so you don't need to have it near the PC.

Another nice plus is the extra buttons like Volume that work when you have the mouse up in the air.

Cons: Minor issue, but the scroll wheel is replaced but a touch sensitive button. The only problem I found with it is that because there isn't an actual wheel my finger tends to end up on it instead of the left button.

This would be a 5 egg mouse, but it is pricey. If it ever hits $100 or less, this would jump to the best bang for your buck.

Other Thoughts: Now for the geek geek stuff.

The mouse has a little speaker in it, so the scroll buttons make the noise of scrolling a mouse wheel. Also the pointer automatically changes when you move from desk to air mode with the mouse.

Oh, and I was really unhappy with the air control until I read the manual. You are supposed to hold it like a remote, not a mouse, and click with your thumb. When I gripped the mouse this way, it felt totally natural and worked great.

3 out of 5 eggsscrolling poor

Pros: See my other review

Cons: Since newegg doesn't let me edit reviews, I'm adding this review to add one more big gripe: The scrolling area doesn't work nearly as well as the actual scroll wheel on my logitech vx nano or even my 10 year old microsoft mouse. It's more fussy, harder to find with your finger, and especially in free air mode hard to stabilize the mouse while using. The position requires contorting the fingers to get into position.

3 out of 5 eggsCool but bad ergonomics

Pros: Most useful free air mouse I've used, much better than the gyro-based ones. I got a very good price on this, much lower than MSRP.

People don't realize this, but they don't have to point it at the screen in free air mode. It is ergonomically more comfortable than holding it out at the screen.

Cons: Too fatiguing to use for web surfing, channel surfing, or any intensive use; it's almost impossible to keep the mouse over the frequently used controls on the screen. And as a desktop mouse the buttons are in the wrong place so I have to shift my hands between moving the mouse and clicking.

The most annoying thing is that when you set it down the mouse position always goes to the side of the screen. It would be nice to have a "hold" button that would let you leave the position (say over the fast forward button) but set the mouse down and just click the button.

Also clicking tends to make the mouse pointer jump on screen due to the ergonomics of the buttons being out on the skinny end of the mouse. I think a better shape for a free air mouse would be sort of an egg shape that would fill the palm so that larger arm muscles could be used to control it rather than the twitchy smaller muscles of the hand.

Other Thoughts: I use this mouse for showing people things on the web with my HDTV, but for Windows Media Center it's much better to use a standalone TV style IR remote control like the Mediagate that I bought on newegg. Having the fast forward button right under your finger is much easier than having to aim a mouse at it every time.

For me I find that the most comfortable position if I'm on the couch is to use it with my hand lying on the couch. But in that position I just use the optical sensor on the couch surface itself, so most of the time I might as well just be using a regular wireless optical mouse.

Because I end up using this more in optical mode than free air mode, I wish it incorporated darkfield technology so it would work on my glass coffee table.

4 out of 5 eggsUm well it's ok

Pros: Super neat if you have no other choice or using it with software like hulu or any other where it is just simple move and clicks it is fairly precise but still not quite 100% in air fine on desk

Cons: ha you won't wanna game with this, yes i know it is not a gaming mouse but as soon as you pick it up to try and realign the cursor with mouse position it goes straight to air controls which makes it hard, maybe i can slow the time it takes to respond from desk to air if i can that would make this mouse very nice. I would think they could add a few more buttons and be an all around good mouse

Other Thoughts: I don't want to come across as saying this is not a good mouse just trying to let you know what to expect

4 out of 5 eggsNo arm waving needed

Pros: This is an elegant looking mouse, smaller than it looks in pictures. It is shiny smooth piano black that reminds one of Samsung TVs and HDVD players;all that is missing is the touch of red trim. It is very light which may be a problem for some. It seems like its backward when first used on the desk. There have been critiques of the placing of buttons,much of it deserved(see cons)but it must be noted, there is what is called a Set Point manager that allows you to reconfigure this mouse any way you choose from cursor speed to type of cursor. Mine is set up just like any regular mouse. L/R Clk, center scroll etc.There is a small learning curve but I do not think that anyone will aggravate any preexistent shoulder traumas or war injuries, I haven't. It works as advertised and it does it well.There are some negs but they are small,Like when you try on new shoes that later become your faves you cannot part with.I have been using it for over a week and now it is my default mouse..

Cons: It is so smooth it can get a little sweaty and makes the unit a bit slippery,which causes you to grip it a little tighter inducing hand fatigue.The four middle buttons are too small and too close together and in the wrong order. It's hard to tell them apart. The small BACK button is right behind the SCROLL button and it doesn't always work. It will back certain pages but not others which can be a bit irksome; better to use the LEFT SELECT button on the page's back arrow as usual.How often do you use a Back button vs the SELECT button? This is designed as though the BACK button is used more than the SELECT button. The small center Select button(there are 2 selects) which also works only sometimes,it has a slight lip on it's edge but all of the buttons are too smooth and are hard to"feel"one from another. I have placed a small square of textured tape on the left SELECT and the RIGHT Click buttons in order to separate them from the center scroll or"CRUISE" button.

Other Thoughts: I am sure this mouse will not be for everyone. I think this mouse would be more appreciated by those with smaller or more regular sized hands, such as younger people and woman for example. I think those with very large hands would choose to use it mainly as a desktop and only occasionally use the"Air"option. I have used it for over a week and I love it. It makes a pretty good "remote"when watching vids on the PC too. You have the option of using it as a desk top only, which I recommend in order to get used to the button location,feel etc, or to use the remote" air function. All of the problems noted by others seem to me a bit over done, to say the least. Reception problems? I have the receiver plugged into a Rosewill USP Hub that sits under my monitor and not a single glitch.The signal is strong enough so that you can sit far away from the PC and do your work or gaming in comfort.The distance is limited only by your eyesight and the resolution of your monitor.I highly recommend it.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The mouse is good. So are shipping and packaging.

Cons: Mine came with a lot dust in the box. And there are many scratches on the CDROM package. Looks like an open box one.
