Summary This is a great Mouse. I like the fact that it has the ability to switch between 2 different speeds at the press of a button (which you can set the speeds yourself), however, I was mislead, expecting that you could increase the speed and decrease the speed more and more by pressing each button either times, not a 2 mode, 2 button system. I believe a better way to do this would be a single button press to switch between modes. That said however, I was extremely impressed with the idea of switching between click and free roll mouse wheel rolling systems. Another thing I liked was the application switch function, a really practical button, so I no longer need to use the windows key + tab combination (alike alt + tab), and neither do people who do not know about this key combination, adding functionality to the computer system of most people.
This mouse I have found, as it says on the box, is quite precise, to the pixel. Also, the signal is extremely fast. I have the receiver plugged into the USB input of a thermal pad, and I still notice no difference, which I found on a wired mouse plugged directly into the computer.
Also, being a gamer and game designer myself, I find the gaming mode really practical. That, and the ergonomic design make it a good mouse for big time gamers and small time gamers who do not have millions of dollars to spend on whatever they want. Also, I find that the adjustable DPI is really useful in sniping games where you need only the slightest of movements to get that perfect aim, but using the faster setting would throw you way off, I find switching to the lower setting quite useful. The speed and precision also deliver that unfair advantage in any game.
Also, in the manual, it states that you can use the mouse on either 1 or 2 batteries (you can leave a single battery bay empty), regardless of which battery it is, and the mouse will still function as normal. The idea behind this is to decrease the weight of the mouse, yet another practical idea.
And the Logitech Setpoint Program (disk included, no download required other than updates) is a great addition, as expected however, which allows you to change mouse specific options such as those previously mentioned.
2 Things I did not like about this mouse however, were firstly, that there was nowhere for people to put the USB Reciever in this mouse, like there is in netbook mice, which is 1 thing I would expect with a non wired USB reciever for all products. Possibly one of the most logical things not included in this mouse. I also found that this mouse was only a little bit smaller. If they were to expand it to maybe 120% it's current size (also making room for the USB reciever to sit in the mouse somewhere), it would be a bit more comfortable in my hand (yes, I do have a normal sized hand).
That said, I quite like this mouse, and I would reccomend it to other people. It will be the bragging point of my hardware (other than my awesome computer), showing that Logitech really has lived up to their name (obviously short for logical technology), and reputation of being the number 1 in computer peripherals and communication devices.
"I love this mouse!"on by robmidi
Pros Ergo design, precision, comfort
Cons Lack of rechargeability
Summary I finally made the jump to the MX 1100 after my $20 MS Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 started acting up. The mouse was used with my Asus G50VT notebook running Vista Home Premium 64 bit, which travels with me. This is my third Logitech mouse and by far my favorite. I have large hands and this mouse is very comfortable. The adjustable scrolling precision/method works great and I have the stealth button programmed to flop documents. I am using this mouse in conjunction with a Logitech Access Keyboard 600, which eliminates my using the notebook's keyboard.
I suppose one could knock the lack of rechargeability, but that really isn't an issue with me. I have a bunch of rechargeable batteries and a charger at home (for the Wii), but the expected battery life on the MX 1100 is such that it won't be a problem.
The unit installed effortlessly and once configured, it rocks! My wife even loves it. Yes, it's a pricey mouse, but I expect several years of serviceability out of it.
I would highly recommend this mouse, just for the comfort factor. Way to go Logitech!
Pros enough pros
Cons no extra mousefeet

"TOO BIG HEAVY"on by MeKnows
Pros Hidden Button
Cons TOO BIG DOES NOT MOVE WITH PRECISION OR SPEED
Summary WAY TOO BULKY , EVEN FOR MY BIG HANDS. YOIU LITERALLY HAVE TO EXERT ENERGY TO MOVE THIS MOUSE AROUND. FUNCTIONS ARE NICE BUT IF ITS NOT PRECISE OR EASY TO MOVE AROUND, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
MOUSE 101 = FAILED
Pros Good feel in the hand. Thumb button is a nice feature. Wheel ability to rapidly scroll through pages is a mixed blessing.
Cons DPI is only 1600, which makes it hard for fine movements while aiming in FPS games. Can be frustrating if gaming is your focus, like it is for me.
