Pros:Small size, weight, smooth movement, small receiver, SetPoint utility

Cons:Scratches easily, receiver remains outside after inserting it back into the mouse

The Bottom Line: Great mouse, performs extremely well. Logitech has been one of the pioneers in input devices. Excellent product

Logitech V200

Out of the Box:

The box is well packaged and compact. The package contents are:
1. The V200 mouse
2. 2.4 GHz Wireless micro-reciever
3. CD with SetPoint software
4. Two AA batteries
5. CD for Drivers for Windows OS
6. User manual
The mouse is silver and the build quality & finish is great, just what you’d expect from Logitech. The micro-receiver is really small, smaller than the a flash drive and does not have a protruding antenna like the older laptop mousse. The user manual is very comprehensive, includes detailed install instructions, explanation of the various functions of the mouse and best usage/position of mouse.


There are 2 CDs one with the drivers and the other with the SetPoint software. The Windows XP OS detected the mouse even without installing the drivers. The scroll and the right & left clicks worked at this point & the OS management tool allowed the basic mouse config. But after installing the Logitech SetPoint software the left-right scroll too worked. The SetPoint software has received awards for the best input device management software and the quality does show. It is very comprehensive and the mouse can be customized to practically any need of the user. All buttons can be customized.

Next, the range of the mouse signal from the receiver is phenomenal. It works from over 25 ft. The 2.4Ghz technology is great, the range has increased drastically. The mouse itself is very comfortable to use. Its design supports Left-handed & right-handed use. I have been using it for 9 months now & use it everyday when working 8 hours a day and I did not have to change the battery yet, that’s amazing, especially since my older Microsoft mouse lasted for 4 months on an average. The weight of the mouse makes it feel substantial & assists in the easy & smooth movement of the cursor.

Some Issues:

The silver/black surface scratches very easily, my mouse looks old because of the scratches. When the micro-receiver is placed on the back of the mouse it does not completely go into the mouse, meaning the is mouse wobbly, most of the other mouse have an indentation in the mouse in the shape of the receiver.
