Logitech announced a revolution in PC navigation with two advanced mice that transform the experience of finding and manipulating the vast amount of digital content on a person’s computer or on the Web. The Logitech MX Revolution cordless laser mouse and the Logitech VX Revolution cordless laser mouse for notebooks mark a radical change in navigating digital content – from which few people will turn back once they have experienced it.
Both mice feature hyper-fast scrolling with a revolutionary alloy wheel – the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel – that spins freely for up to seven seconds, spanning hundreds of pages with a single flick of the finger and setting a new benchmark in scrolling efficiency. Computer navigation with these mice is also enhanced with an innovative One-Touch Search feature that allows people to select a word or phrase on a Web page or in a document and, with a single click, view Internet search results on that subject. And with their ergonomic designs, the new mice offer a level of comfort that is almost forgettable — they become a nearly imperceptible extension of the hand.
A recent Logitech study revealed that people, on average, have six applications open on their computer at any one time, and the active window switches or a new window opens every 50 seconds. To navigate the vast content at their disposal, people spin their mouse’s scroll wheel approximately 26 feet in an eight-hour day. The MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel helps ease this navigational challenge in two different ways. Its breakthrough free-spin mode takes people through long documents as quickly as they want. A single flick of the finger yields as many as 10,000 lines of a Microsoft Excel document in seven seconds – with a traditional scroll wheel, it would take 500 spins and seven minutes to cover the same territory.
Marking another breakthrough in navigation, the One-Touch Search feature can be married to a user’s search application, such as Yahoo! or Google. When a word or phrase is highlighted in a document or on a Web page, a click of the One-Touch Search button, located just beneath the scroll wheel, automatically begins a search of the Web or computer system.
The Logitech VX Revolution Mouse is designed for notebook PC users who want the very best in a mouse, because it balances portability and comfort. It’s smaller in size than the MX Revolution mouse and includes a slot to store the 2.4 GHz micro-receiver, making it more portable. And its ergonomic design, rubber-lined thumb grip and slightly concave key plates make it highly comfortable to use. The base of the mouse features a switch that can shift the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel from free-spin mode to click-to-click mode. The mouse also includes a zoom slider that makes it easy to zoom in and out of open documents and photos.
The Logitech MX Revolution’s price is $79.99 and the Logitech VX Revolution mouse has a price of $51.99.
