This Mouse Logitech MX Anywhere 2 It was acquired for the laptop of my work. He is replacing a mouse Dell WM311, that came with the laptop and the left button stopped working after almost 4 years of use.
With the failure of the mouse from Dell, I got one foot out the door with the brand, so I opted for the brand with which I've never had a problem: Logitech. Already got 4 mice Logitech G9X and everyone keeps working perfectly, being that the oldest of them I bought in 2009, in other words, already has more than 6 years of use. Two of them I've talked here in Skooter Blog in previous articles:
- eBay: Mouse Logitech G9x – Edição Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 from 21/01/2013
- Amazon via Shipito: Mouse Logitech G9X Edição Call of Duty: MW3 (Logitech G9X Gaming Mouse Call of Duty: MW3 Edition (910-002764)) from 30/08/2013
I also have a Mouse Logitech VX Nano, bought em 2009, It also works perfectly until today. I have other Logitech products, including the Logitech z623, a pair of speakers + subwoofer to PC, and some other products, some of which have shown here in Skooter Blog:
- Wireless keyboard with Logitech Touch Mouse K400R from 09/12/2015
- Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, 1080p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording from 06/06/2014
- Webcam Logitech C525 com AutoFoco, Video HD, Photos 8MP and Built-in Microphone from 17/01/2013
- Webcam Logitech C525 720P USB 2.0 c / Microfone genuine from 25/09/2012
The Logitech VX Nano out of line, so I went to get the Logitech site for a successor and I found the Mouse Logitech MX Anywhere 2, It's a wireless mouse and works with the Peak Logitech Unifying Receiver connected to a USB port, Using Logitech Unifying receiver, or directly by Bluetooth, using technology Bluetooth Smart. The Mouse Logitech MX Anywhere 2 also can be paired with up to 3 devices at the same time. A small button on the bottom of the mouse allows you to switch between them. Logitech calls this technology Easy-Switch.
The tracing in Mouse Logitech MX Anywhere 2 It is made by laser, so that it can be used on virtually any surface, including directly on glass tables, Darkfield technology, that uses the smallest possible details to create a micro-road map of the area. This is a very desirable feature for notebook mice, that could end up being used in unpredictable locations.
The scroll button has two modes of operation, the click-to-click mode works accurately, just spinning as the finger movement. The free spin mode allows a boost around and she keeps turning inertia for a few seconds or until we stop it with the finger. This mode is good to pass quickly through a document, for example, stopping at the exact moment that we wish. This is a feature that is also available in Logitech G9x, However in the Logitech G9x the button to switch between the two modes is in the bottom, whereas in MX Anywhere 2 simply press the wheel to switch between modes.
The battery Mouse Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is rechargeable and is not removable. To recharge it just connect the mouse to a USB port with the accompanying cable.
To have access to all the features of MX Anywhere 2 You must install the Logitech software Options. With it is possible to adjust the scroll wheel and the speed of the cursor, allow the gesture button play touch gestures in Windows or Mac OS and reassign mouse buttons. No Windows 10 has appeared a window suggesting the Logitech Installation Options as soon as I connected the MX Anywhere 2. The Logitech Options is available for Windows and MAC.
Regarding Logitech VX Nano, I missed two things in MX Anywhere 2. One of them is a compartment to store the Peak Unifying Receiver. I know the idea is to leave it plugged in a USB port, because it is very small, even smaller than the receiver of the VX Nano, It was small, but VX Nano had a compartment, next to the battery compartment, where the receiver could be saved. The other item that I found missing was a small bag to hold the mouse. The VX Nano It came with a bag with zipper, good practice and protecting well the mouse inside the backpack.
The notebook in which the MX Anywhere will be used using Windows 7, so the only option is through the Unifying Receiver Pico. But testing on a desktop with Windows 10 I came to configure the mouse for Bluetooth connection to test. I didn't like the result, the movement was fluid, It's like the packages would be accumulated in buffer and arrived after, making the cursor move with small jumps, in other words, with delay. I don't know if the problem is with the machine, If there was interference, or if the Bluetooth connection is really bad, but the fact is that connecting the receiver movement is completely fluid and without any delay.
