Logitech MX 610 Wireless Laser Mouse

You can find it for around $30-$40 when on sale.

Logitech has come out with a new line of mice. This is a GREAT laser mouse for the price.
- It uses 2xAA batteries (no proprietary batteries yeah!)
- the usb receiver is TINY! (smaller than my logitech notebook wireless mouse.)
- all the usual buttons work fine in firefox (forward/back). Scroll wheel has the notches. It also has tilt but that requries their drivers but everything else works fine with no drivers installed.
- batter indicator
- auto turns on/off with your computer. This works great even without drivers.
- there is a manual power switch underneath. Tap to display battery level, hold to turn on/off.
- has volume +/-/mute which work with NO drivers
- has indicator lights for email/IM (only works with microsoft crap). Worthless feature IMO.
- tracks great even on my couch. there's a BIG difference between this mouse and my mx510.
- very comfortable shape. If you like the shape of the other mx line (500,510,518,700) you will like this mouse.

This is a great laser mouse for $40
