When I purchased my Compaq Presario C714NR, I knew I would be needing a new mouse to replace my old and broken A4 Tech mini-sized mouse which I used for my previous laptop. My mind was made up that I would get a wireless Logitech mouse so I shopped around for the best deal on the web. It took me a while but then I finally found one over at Buy.com where they were selling the Logitech V450 Cordless Laser Mouse for only $19 after rebates.
I didn’t hesitate or have second thoughts about buying it. I knew it was a very good deal because the regular retail price of a Logitech V450 Cordless Laser Mouse is $49 and now I could get it for less than half the price. Buy.com accepted PayPal which made the purchase even easier and what made it even better was FREE shipping!
- Logitech® V450 Laser Cordless Mouse for Notebooks
- 2.4 GHz micro-receiver
- Installation guide
- Logitech® SetPoint software CD (for Windows-based PC)
- 2 AA batteries
- 3-year warranty
What I liked about this particular model is that it wasn’t too fancy, it had a nice ergonomic design and it was just exactly what I needed. It boasts a battery life of 1 year which I don’t believe will happen in my case considering the number of hours I use it. But still, I like the fact that it’s energy-efficient. The mouse wheel has what is called a “tilt wheel” function which is used for horizontal scrolling. Another thing I like is that Logitech also provides the batteries. The Logitech V450 Cordless Laser Mouse works with both PC and Mac and in my case where I’m using Windows Vista, I didn’t have to install the drivers as it was automatically detected by the system. It was basically plug-n-play. So as soon as I inserted the receiver, I was able to use it right away. I feel very comfortable using it and it’s just the right size and shape for my hand.
I just checked Buy.com’s product page for this model and saw that they’re selling back at the regular retail price. Btw, Logitech has this model in all-black color which looks even better. I would’ve gotten that one but it wasn’t available at that time.
How about you? What model or brand of mouse are you currently using? Do you have any brand preference for computer mice?
How does this compare to the X8? I’m getting a new desktop in a week and I’ll need another mouse.

@Safe Computing Tips – No I haven’t but it sounds very cool and expensive. Hehe :D
But from what you’ve mentioned, I think it’s a good product because it lessens the stress on the wrists and it minimizes the chances of getting carpal tunnel syndrome, right? Thanks for sharing and for dropping by! :)
Have you hear about “Pmo5 mouse perfit optical without scroll wheel provides twice the tracking precision of many other normal optical mice.”
Other than these advantages, it also maintains the straight wrist alignment and minimizes lateral deviation by providing more comfortable levels for your hand while using it.
@dimaks – Ei friend, long time no see! Akemashite omedetou! Hehe hope I got that right. :D

@jhay – Yeah, Logitech mice are really good performance wise and quality wise.
That’s exactly what’s happening right now here at home. Whenever my son sees my mouse, he wants to get it and play with it so I have to hide it from him. Hehe I hope he doesn’t destroy it. :D
Logitech mice has always been my choice.
Though the last time I had a wireless mice it only lasted for a couple of weeks. My baby brother was always playing with it as if it was one of his toy cars. :roll:
