New Notebook Mouse

Posted in Gadgets at Friday, September 1, 2006 2:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time

Just got my new mouse from Amazon. I had a gift certificate that I had been sitting on for quite some time, so the $75 notebook mouse seemed like a good buy.

Logitech VX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks

I'm running the Pre-RC1 Vista build, so I was excited to see the following in the specs when I was ordering it:

System Requirements


  • Windows® XP
  • Windows Vista™ (requires Internet connection)
  • Available USB port
  • CD-ROM drive

So after installing the mouse this morning I headed over to logitech.com to get the drivers so that the extra buttons would work. However, when I got to the download I see:

This release supports Windows XP and Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4.  Windows Vista is not currently supported by SetPoint. [Emphasis Mine]

Hmmm. Oh well. I guess they are planning on supporting Vista at some point, but still I think that is pretty misleading. Other than that the mouse seems pretty nice. It replaces my squeaky mouse which also recently developed a sticky wheel. I'd post a review but I have a feeling I'm not really using the mouse as it was meant to be used since I don't have a driver.
