Logitech MX1000 Laser Mouse

How do you make a mouse more precise than ever? Use a new technology of course! We review the Logitech MX1000 Laser Mouse, which they promise to be 20 times as accurate as Optical. We put it to the tests, so check it out!

Page 5 – Conclusion

Overall, I have been very impressed with the MX1000. It’s the smoothest mouse I’ve ever used, and most comfortable as well. For offices and every day use, it’s the most perfect mouse out there right now. As I mentioned in the previous section though, if you are a hardcore gamer, and are looking for a new mouse for this reason, I recommend you check out the MX518. You can see a comparison view of them both below.

The battery life is also great, so even if you use it often, you will not have to recharge that often. I use the computer everyday, for far too many hours per day. It was 5 days before I was down to one bar remaining, and even then, it would have gone further. One plus that could be considered a negative, is that the battery is built-in, so you don’t need to replace batteries ever. However, if the battery does happen to die down the road, your only choice is to get a new mouse.

The mouse doesn’t come cheap, at $79.95US, it’s one of the most expensive on the market. However, if you want a top of the line mouse that is actually worth the price, then I highly recommend you check out the MX1000. It no doubt deserves a 10/10. Thanks to Kate from Logitech for allowing us to review the mouse!
