The Good Comes with extra buttons for easier navigation; friendly for gamers and multimedia multitaskers; ergonomic design.

The Bad Lefties are out of luck; people with big hands might wish the Logitech MX610 laser mouse were larger.

The Bottom Line The Logitech MX610 laser cordless mouse provides comfort and convenient extra features not available from any other mouse on the market.

Logitech MX610 cordless laser mouse

PC multitaskers who want navigation shortcuts in the palm of their hand will appreciate the Logitech MX610 laser cordless mouse. Though good mice such as the Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 5000 are available for less than the MX610's $59.99 price, none offers its combination of cordless functionality, laser optical engine, media controls, and visual alerts.

Setup of the MX610 laser mouse was simple, and Logitech gets props for providing two AA batteries. We popped them into the mouse, plugged a tiny USB receiver into our PC, and the mouse worked right away. You'll need to install Logitech's included SetPoint software to take advantage of the MX610's e-mail and instant-message (IM) alerts, however. SetPoint is easy to navigate and includes a wizard that walks you through different setup options. We took the QuickTour and learned that you can set the e-mail-notification button to do nothing, to light up when you get new messages, or to open a particular file or Web page. SetPoint also lets you select your preferred IM and e-mail clients, the length of time the notification lights stay on, and whether to ignore certain IM senders.
