Logitech has launched two mice that should help you skip through documents with added speed or give you the edge with mouse-based gaming – the Logitech MX Revolution mouse and the Logitech VX Revolution mouse.
Both mice feature fast scrolling by what’s described as a "revolutionary" alloy wheel – the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel – that spins freely for up to seven seconds, spanning (according to Logitech) hundreds of pages with a single flick of the finger. There’s also a One-Touch Search feature, which allows you to select a word or phrase on a page, then view internet search results on that subject. The Revolution mouse is also built for comfort, with sculpted contours and rubber thumb grips, not to mention the low-resistance polytetrafluoroethylene feet, which means more glide from less of a push.
The Logitech MX Revolution mouse operates wirelessly, using a rechargeable Li-ion battery and featuring advanced SmartShift Technology to adapt to the scrolling mode to your application – whether you require free spinning or click-to-click. There’s also document Quick-Flip to easily move between open documents. It should be available from the end of this week, priced at £79.99. The Logitech VX Revolution mouse is designed for notebook users, smaller than the MX, it’s also wireless and still features the fast scrolling and Touch to Search technology. It should retail for £59.99.
