The Best Mouse for Designers and Web AddictsPosted on 13
Update July 2015: Logitech have a released a new, even better mouse called the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse.
So you want to know what is the best mouse for designers and/or web addicts? Well on the weekend I bought the Logitech MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse, something that has been on my wish list for a few months and I believe it is the best mouse for designers and/or web addicts…
The best feature that differs this mouse from any other is the ergonomics and how it fits into your hand – it fits pretty much like a glove, its so perfect! It’s the perfect weight and is super comfortable, perfect for a graphic designer or web addict who never leaves the computer.
The next best thing would have to be the scroll wheel which glides through pages depending on how fast or hard you flick the wheel – this is so so so cool, I repeat, so cool. A great demo of this function and on the whole mouse can be found on this 2 min video.
The next best feature of the mouse would be the buttons on the side of the mouse (see pic at top) which allows you to scroll through your applications with your fingers instead of using Alt+Tab. There is also another handy search button on the top of the mouse which means you can search documents or the net with just a click! Really useful!
It also comes with a stand to recharge the batteries on :)
The only downfall of this beauty is the price tag and it is for right handers only. It is currently averaging AUD $90 on eBay or USD $50 or you can get it from the official Logitech website for USD $99.For the full overview check out the official Logitech website.
