Logitech's newest addition to their MX brand of performance mice comes in the form of the MX1100, a bulky, wireless rodent with a few tricks-up-its-sleeve. Unlike Logitech's G-series brand of gaming mice, the MX line is tailored more for general purpose-computing, though with the versatility, not expertise, for gaming.

For only a few pounds more you can get the MX3200 which is almost identical and has a keyboard too....

I got mine from dell for £30 but can't find it now but also available here itcsales.co.uk/aca…tml

The price is good but mouse is different, the MX3200 is keyboard tag, mouse is MX600.

That mouse is not as good and also uses AA baterries, the one in this deal is a rechargable and not a bad price.


I personally prefer and have the MX Revolution which to me is the best mouse ever. But is more expensive as well

You're my Savour, been meaning to find something good yet well priced as mine double clicks when I want it to single click. It's highly annoying.

Heat and rep. :-)

If you're using windows you can just change the settings to stop that. You don't need to buy a new mouse.

It's not a software problem, it's hardware.

The switch for the left click has gone faulty.

what size is the dongle?

Het added. This is a really good mouse.

logitech one? my old one did the same (think was mx600 but cant rememeber) emailed logitech support with model number - they confirmed model is under 3 years old and sent me a mx revolution replacement.

Fantastic mouse, bought as a package with the wave pro keyboard for just under £60 from amazon
keyboards quite cool too:thumbsup:
amazon.co.uk/Log…8-1

the advantage of buying this as a package with the keyboard is that you get the mx1100 which is rechargeable whereas the mouse bought individually is non-rechargeable
here's some reviews :

Ah ok, that's strange.

Thanks for the heads up, have been looking to replace my ageing ]Logitech G7 and 1600 dpi on this is plenty usable.

I've had an MX1000 for about 5 years now & it's still goin..

Can't fault Logitec Customer Services either.. I (and a bunch of folk I know) have had nothing but good experience with 'em.

If your Logitec kit goes belly up & the retailer won't take it back/replace it, call Logitec & 9/10 times they'll send you a new 'un :thumbsup:

This one looks like the "BUSINESS" MX1100R mouse. I'm using it right now and it's the best mouse I've EVER used.

I've had this happen on two of my MX1100R's.

Solution was to prise up the left mouse button and spray some compressed air underneath. What I've found is that the OEM packaging for these mice leaves a lot to be desired as there is no protection for the switches on the mouse when in storage and transit (other than plastic wrapping and thin cardboard).

I hope this helps.

Cheers, bud. I'll give it a shot.

I've reserved this, but doesn't mean I have to go collect it eh. :thumbsup:

looks a hot deal! logitech is quality...

i own a mx revolution for desktop and mx nano for netbook and wouldnt think of using any other.

2 questions

1) how long will the batteries approx. last in these, as it is not rechargeable?

2) is normal wireless better than bluetooth for mice?

Thanks

Does this come with a recharger or batteries?

If batteries how long do they last?

Definitely not rechargeable, although you can use your own rechargeable batteries.

Most likely no batteries included?

This does not need rechargeable batteries. It has a battery pack integrated into the body of the mouse.

You charge it by plugging a USB cable into the front of the mouse.

The MX1100R, which this is, contains a rechargeable battery. I've just checked mine - it's a Sanyo Enerloop. Anyway, the mouse charges via a charge port at the front of the mouse.

im still using my microsoft intellimouse explorer 3.0

wonder how many noobs have been pwned over its life, gotta be millions by now

I have the VX Revolution that takes battery and it only lasted a month so I might replace it with this.
The range on the VX seems crap too, anyone know if this one will work upto 8 feet away? My VX is 6 feet away from TV and the pointer jerks on the screen and cuts out for a few seconds every now and then.

Can you change the battery on the inside when it wears out? is it just some AA rechargeable inside?

Just answering a few questions:

From the Comet site this appears to be the MX1100R as others have said. This is the "Business" version or basically the version that's bundled with Logitech's Cordless Desktop Wave Pro. This is the rechargeable version that many people wanted over the standard MX1100.

The most visible difference externally from the MX1100 and the MX1100R aside from the USB charging port at the front (which most online store images don't show) is the colour of text written on the side and beside the DPI buttons. The regular version uses yellowy orange text and the rechargeable R version has blue text.

The MX1100R uses a single Sanyo Eneloop AA which is known to be one of the best rechargeable batteries around because they hold their charge for a long time (when not in use). You can recharge the MX1100R via a USB cable you plug in at the front and even use it whilst it's charging, it basically becomes a wired mouse - this is far far better than those charging cradles they used to provide. You can pop in a normal non rechargeable AA to use if you're desperate.

I believe the MX1100R uses a Micro-B USB port whilst the other end of the charging cable provided uses the more traditional Type A to plug into your computer. The charging cable actually has a velcro tie on it so you can easily curl it up and pack away - I thought this was a nice touch. Being a a standards compliant cable, you should be able to pick up another should you lose the original.

The regular MX1100 uses 2 AA batteries and Logitech claim it can last 9 months of use, whether this is true or not I don't know. However you can of course swap these batteries out for rechargeable versions of your own, but to charge them you'll need an external charger. It can also run on a single AA if you prefer the mouse to be lighter, the battery life will be less obviously.

I bought my MX1100R a month ago from Ebuyer for around £33 (it's gone up now) and so this is a very good deal. The battery meter on the mouse still says full and I've used this mouse heavily (5 hours plus) every day for the past month.

Quoting from a site:

A 15-minute charge gives you enough power for up to one day. A 7-hour … A 15-minute charge gives you enough power for up to one day. A 7-hour charge provides up to six weeks of power.


I've not had to charge the mouse yet so I can't attest to this, but I would say it's likely to be accurate.

Other things:

It uses a USB micro receiver which is roughly the same size as USB flash drives. Most reviews I've read said they would've preferred a "Plug-and-Forget" nano-receiver, but it makes no difference to me since I use my mouse on a desktop PC.

Personally I'd have to say the 2.4GHz wireless the MX1100 uses is better than Bluetooth because Bluetooth mice tend to have very short battery life as it's very demanding (hence the very few Bluetooth mice on the market). Despite most computers or laptops having Bluetooth these days which makes it convenient and frees up a USB port, I'd still prefer longer battery life. However, Bluetooth mice do have better range in my experience.

As for range, I can use the mouse fine well over 8 feet away (probably about 12 feet), but things like external wireless interference, blocking the "line of sight" or covering the mouse could reduce the distance and tracking accuracy.

It has an On/Off switch on the underside of the mouse so you can manually turn it off when you're not using to save battery, however the mouse turns itself off after a period of non use (around 15 minutes I think). The battery meter is displayed briefly only after turning the device on or waking it after inactivity. There are battery levels in the Logitech driver software, but they seem to be inaccurate in my experience.

It has a Microgear scroll wheel, like the older Logitech Revolution, however they've added a button to switch between the free scrolling and notched modes as opposed to the system that was on the Revolution where if you scrolled hard, it'd automatically go into free scrolling mode. Quite a few people prefer the MX1100 way of doing it because you have better control.

All buttons (10 in all and not including the scrolling mode switch because it's a mechanical button) can be configured via Setpoint (Windows) or Logitech Control Center (Mac), but on Mac you must use the old version ]2.60 as with the newer LCC, you'll just get "No Logitech Device Found". You can use ]Steermouse as an alternative to LCC but you have to pay for it unfortunately.

I use LCC on my Mac despite everyone saying it's extremely buggy, I've not had any problems with it (aside from having to use the older drivers). I chose it over Steermouse as in LCC there's a finer degree of speed control, particularly for the scroll wheel which I needed as bizarrely in Firefox it's very very quick.

You can find this on reviews everywhere, but one of the things that most people don't like is the fact the mouse itself is a lot bigger than other mice, so people with particularly small hands might want to reconsider or try the mouse out at a store first somewhere. Conversely, people with large hands will like this mouse a lot.

It's definitely the widest mouse I've used but I've grown accustomed to it, even with my relatively smallish hands. To give an idea of my hand size: hand span is 21.5cm and from base of hand/wrist to tip of middle finger is 18cm). It's also fairly heavy but my previous mouse (Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v1.0) was the same weight so that was no problem for me.

One of the problems people have from reading forums, is the fact the mouse cursor seems to jumpy or minute movement isn't picked up so fine pixel work is impossible - personally I've not had these problems. I can only presume their mouse was faulty, the drivers were playing up or they were getting wireless interference.

What I have noticed is the laser is positioned fairly high up the underside where as my previous mouse had it closer to the middle (I guess this could be a reason for the minute movement problem some have). This change took some getting used to as you have to move the entire mouse (or the top end) to shift the cursor as opposed to pivoting my hand at the wrist. This is only a minor thing, to which it is no longer a problem, but no reviews I read picked up on this.

I hold mice with my fingertips (apparently this is the usual "gamer" holding style) as opposed to placing my palm flat to the mouse, so my thumb doesn't quite reach the forward thumb button, but otherwise all other buttons are fine. If I did use palm style holding, then the forward button becomes easily accessible. This is another thing no review I read mentioned.

Despite this mouse having DPI buttons, you can only pick 2 different tracking speeds, this then doesn't make it as useful when playing games. Personally, I don't think the MX1100 is good enough to be used as a dedicated gaming mouse, I'll leave that to my MX518. It's too heavy and thus a bit cumbersome for all the twitch work required in first person shooters. For mild gamers or maybe games that don't require such speed and precision (i.e. RTS, MMO) it should be suffice.

As a desktop mouse it excels for the exact reason why I don't think it would make a good gaming mouse - it's weight. Being so heavy (and the snug ergonomic shape), it's a joy to use for everyday web browsing and office type work, especially with the free scrolling. If you've never used a Microgear scroll wheel before, it really is an ingenious invention and you'll wonder how you lived without it.

OK I'm done, I didn't set out for this post to be so long, so apologies

You need either a Bluetooth mouse or the Logitech MX Revolution. I use the MX revolution at about 10 feet away with no problems. :thumbsup: not sure about the range of the one in this deal.
