Default Logitech MX610 Cordless Laser Mouse

If you are going to purchase a top end mouse, chances are that it will have a laser. These mice are no doubt growing fast in popularity, and we are going to take a look at one of Logitechs best, the MX 610. Not only does it have a laser, but it can even notify you of e-mail or IM's!

It's a lovely little mouse and, unlike my MX 700, if I unplug the reciever and plug it back in I don't have to reboot the PC to get it working again. That always bothered me about the MX 700.

It's roughly as long as the MX700 and a bit narrower where the thumb scallop is but not by much.

And thanks.

I haven't ever had that problem with mine.

Unless there's an issue with your drivers or the mb usb drivers that shouldn't happen. I can unplug and switch usb ports, and still plug it back in and get that "detected new hardware" sound and it works just fine.

That seems odd to me Matt..?

Don't ask me, Mine's part of an MX Duo and it's had this issue with both my P4 and my SN41G-2 Shuttle cube.

If I knew why it did it I'd have fixed it. It's been like this even with my Abit IS7 board so I really doubt my USB drivers are suspect.

Ahhh.. I've don't have the duo so maybe the drivers for the bundle work differently. I've got the Elite keyboard which serves me well.

The bundle uses the same drivers as just the mouse and the keyboard separately but it shares the receiver between the two.

It just could be an issue with the Duo's receiver, I dunno.

Hello!

I'm interested in this mouse in a more technical point of view and I would like to ask if you know any sites which shows what's behind the scenes, so to speak. Somebody who has opened the mouse and did some kind of reverse engineering... I would be in Microsoft Wireless Lasermouse 6000 also interested

Thanks in advance!
Regards!

What exactly would you like to know? I mean we can take anything apart but what information are you looking for?

Thing is that with cordless mice you often get some mouse lag when playing games. Better off getting a wired laser mouse for playing games.

Not true. No noticeable lag on high quality mice, especially Logitech. I would know, since I use a Logitech mouse to play games all the time.

Yeah I've got a Mx700 and there's no difference that I've noticed in reaction time. It's right there with a corded mouse. I'm not going back to a corded mouse either!
