The Logitech VX Nano
August 20, 2008 by Dave Roach
Recently I decided to buy myself a new mouse, since my old one was getting, well, old. After some research, I found that the Logitech VX Nano got really good reviews, so I ordered one. I eneded up getting it in the mail about two weeks ago, and I have to say that this mouse is awesome!
The features of this mouse are awesome, a scroll wheel that you can change between hyper fast scrolling and precise scrolling, side scrolling, forward and back buttons (programmable), another button for switching programs (also programmable), low battery indicator, side grips, and best of all, the nano receiver. You know that usb receiver you use to get signal for your wireless mouse? If you’re lucky, then it might be the size of a thumb drive. How about the size of a nickel? The nano reciever is so small, you can stick it in your laptop and never take it out, since it can fit in the bag just as well with it in as with it out.
It can also be stored inside of the mouse and can be ejected with a little button which I thought was cool.
When I first got it, I tried scrolling it noticed how the scroll wheel spun all by itself which is awesome. I didn’t realize until later that it could be changed to the standard clicky scroll wheel until I pushed it down and it changed. At first I though I broke it! Pretty cool feature. It also came with Duracell batteries (always good), a USB extender dock thing for easy access to a desktop usb port and a nice mesh protective case. The only very small issue I have with this mouse is its size. While it’s not a tiny mouse, it still is not a full size mouse either. For someone with smaller hands it would be perfect, but I prefer larger mice. When I ordered it I knew that it was going to be smaller, so I don’t want to say that this mouse isn’t good because it’s small, it’s meant to be that way. If I want a bigger mouse for my desktop I would probably go with a Logitech MX or Logitech G5. Anyways, that’s my two cents. If you are considering getting a portable mouse, I would definitely recommend this mouse first.
