Other Thoughts: It simply stopped working one day. My HDD would start spinning and stop right after the moment it should have been detected and mounted on my computer. The blue LED would not work either. I used it in another enclosure and it worked just fine.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: I've own this mouse since June 2010 to change my aging G7. Out of the package, that mouse looked excellent, what you'd expect Logitech to come up with.
The fun started when I plugged it and installed the software.
First, I couldn't get to save any profile. As soon as I rebooted my computer, they would get lost and I had to start all over again. I uninstalled it (Setpoint) and decided to stick with the standard DPI adjustments. I also experienced numerous gaming issues with it, where the mouse would simply stutter
Secondly comes the infamous (inexistant) middle mouse button. Whenever I would click where I'd expect it to be, I would not get any "click" feedback. The wheel is also bad as it is WAY to sensitive in every way. I got sick of it and reassigned its function to another button, which in term prevented me from using three buttons.
Thirdly is the cover, which is very slippery when your hands aren't sweaty as hell. They should have used this material for the pads.
Pros: - Reliable
- Can support my gaming rig
- Will eventually save your computer
Cons: - None after three years of ownership
Other Thoughts: I bought about three years ago at a local retailer. A few months afterward, while working on an English thesis, our neighborhood went dark. The machine sent a few beeps and I thought it was broken only to figure out that the power was gone. I saved my homework and safely shut my computer (for those interested: 800W PSU, Q9550, 2G of RAM, GTX 275, XFX 750i mobo, 1 HDD + 2 DVD-drives +5x120mm fans with a 22" screen).
At another occasion, I left my computer working while watching a movie during a power outage just to see how long it would last. Result: about 2m30s.
Another reason to buy a an APC UPS (any one)
Recently, I helped a friend with a computer BSOD, only to discover that their computer was shut off during an AV update because of a power outage. The data on the drive is irrecoverable since it won't even boot in safe mode or even let me use WinHex on it. They have to reinstall Windows again, formatting their hard drive in the process.
Buy one. Any one. Now.
