This review is from: Logitech MX 620 6 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Mouse
Set the scroll wheel to free-spinning mode and fly through hundreds of pages a second. Driver allows for very thorough customization of the buttons and behaviour for multiple programs. (I consider it an 8-button mouse since the horizontal scroll can be customized.) Average life should be 9-12 months on two AA batteries, unless power button is used to further conserve battery life. Decent weight for good handling.
Scroll wheel on stepped mode is very rickety. Not all features are available for every button, although every one can be given a keyboard command. (The guy with Firefox trouble could fix his problem this way using Alt+Arrow commands.) Insists on retaining commands for "core" programs you may not be using (IE, PowerPoint) even when deleted. A few programs do not like free-wheel mode (Wordpad).
Very useful for Battlefield 2142 and other games. Extra buttons allow for five functions to be moved from the keyboard (such as three weapons and the two BF comm roses) for a major edge. You can also control Winamp without being anywhere near the computer.
