Awesome mouse!

Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX for PC and Mac, Large Mouse, Long Range Wireless Mouse
Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX for PC and Mac, Large Mouse, Long Range Wireless Mouse

Pros: Lot of control, very nice use, very smooth, works on any type of surface, good battery life (charge maybe once every month and half, and I'm a gamer), very comfortable. Not much bad things to say about it. The free wheel option, I like. Very usefull in many way, but... see cons.

Cons: At first touch, I found the mouse looked too light and fragile. It is not that fragile, though I would have liked it a bit heavier; it feels empty and I like to have the feeling that my expensive stuff is filled with a lot of heavy and dense-complex technologies, or whatever. However, the mouse proved itself being solid, so its just a matter of feeling. The wheel feeling is not really obvious when you use the "side-click". There's not "click" sound. Also, I only saw it work in Excel, nowhere else, even though I haven't tried it in so many softwares. It's not Bluetooth. I knew it, but still... that is using a USB port for nothing when it could simply be Bluetooth. There's no possibility to had weights in the mouse. Well, I haven't found any weight compartiment.

Overall Review: I like the mouse and I'm satisfied with its performance. The main thing is that its very ergonomic so I can play for hours without having my hand starting to hurt from a bad position. Also, I never miss a movement, the "laser/sensor/call it however you want" is very sensitive, even with an irregular surface. I'm using it from Afghanistan, with dust everywhere and it still works without a glitch. Having to buy it again, I would do it. I'm completely satisfied, and I only give 4 eggs because of: -The weight, to light. -The wheel feeling. -No bluetooth for a wireless mouse. By the way, sorry for my english, its my second language.

Works, but bad sound quality

Pros: Works well, the functions (play/pause/rewind/volume/etc) are all properly working with my iTouch. The battery life is pretty good, about 6h worth. Takes maybe an hour or an hour and a half to charge. Range is of about 10 meters. I can leave my iPod in my room and go everywhere in my place without any issues. The headset appears to be sweat/moisture tolerent. I use it when I do cardio, and tried it in the shower twice (kept my head and neck dry though). It still works... so far hehe. I will keep trying to do stupid stuff with them, since I don't really care about breaking them; see the cons.

Cons: The sound isn't very good. First of all, the speakers are not playing very loud, and the isolation is disapointing. So basically, it lacks bass and treble. A proper isolation would solve the bass issue, as I tried to push the headset thighter in my ears and the bass was then efficient. But the treble was still shameful. So, for the bass, I blame the poor isolation (tried all the earbud size, didn't changed anything) and for the treble, it must be Bluetooth's fault. In fact, I'm not really blaming the treble issue as I anticipated it due to the low bitrate of Bluetooth technology. But the bass issue is a real pain. Oh and I forgot, due to the poor isolation, you ear people talk around even at the highest volume. I was expecting something different when I chosed this in-ear headset. Oh and, it's almost impossible to pair with Windows 7. Apparently, W7 doesn't provide standart Bluetooth drivers for the use of headsets, and Motorola didn't provided any driver either.

Overall Review: I wouldn't buy it again, and I wouldn't recommend it to a friend. I will buy another pair of Bluetooth/portable-technology headset in the future, but in a far future. This technology isn't worth it for now. Maybe with Bluetooth 3.0, the bitrate will be higher and the sound quality better, and maybe that companies will provide good quality ear-bud/speakers with their future wireless solutions. But this Motorola S9-HD device isn't satisfying me at all. I'm sorry, I would have better liked providing a good review... This device might satisfy people who don't care about high quality sound and just want a pair of wireless headset. For those of you, this device will be great. It's not so expensive, and for sport, it's doing good. I mean, even if I'm unhappy with my purchase, I'm still using it at the gym and on my bicycle.
