Performance MX: Just another wireless mouse ... (!?)

Aug 20, 2012 (Updated Aug 20, 2012)
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Ergonomics, Dark Field sensor, responsive, use while charging, micro receiver (unified)

Cons:Scroll wheel is a poor middle mouse button. Search button placement

The Bottom Line: A good, solid design! While not mandatory, it's certainly a great upgrade!


Mice are commodities these days and it's almost hard to believe there may be much room for new features and the price to remain as high as it has been. Logitech has a firm grip on much of the market and it has been a while that I bought my last mouse (somewhere around 3 years). Somehow I convinced myself that it's time to upgrade once more, but mostly because my previous MX moved to my work place and the MX1100 turned out to be a very unreliable friend.

Okay, so it's Logitech again and the confusing naming of the MX series does nothing for the distinction which model this review is about. Although the MX1100 has the moniker in the name, it sure acted and looked different from the MX and the Performance MX.

Long story short, the Performance MX restored my trust in Logitech as viable design for such critical commodity. It easily outperforms the original MX and doesn't have any of the reliability issues of my MX1100.

Beyond the above endorsement, the performance MX does indeed feel like a greatly improved MX in terms of responsiveness and overall handling. In my usage, at least one of the improvements, however, is a bit of an annoyance where the search button is just too conveniently placed right below the Back / Forth buttons and a blind click typically results in the Search window to open rather than going back to the previous page. This is 'solved' by reminding myself to lift the thumb higher, but it also apparently is something I need to constantly remind myself of. (... especially since I am also using the MX mouse at work and get easily confused between the two.)

The new Dark Field sensors sounds a lot like previous claims of being able to work on any surface, but until now it always proved to be too big of a claim anyway. While I don't have a glass table, the laminate desk still posed sometimes an issue to the sensor of my old mice, especially where the surface dulled a bit from wear. While that's counter-intuitive, the Performance MX made me forget about those struggles. No more erraticresponse (which can be 'fatal' in computer games)!

Since the Performance MX uses a click wheel (which also recognizes Left / Right commands), it's still a bit handicapped in applications (i.e. Pro/Engineer) that make heavy use of the MMB. One can get used to it, but every now and then the occasional scroll while holding MMB is annoying as it either unintentionally combines moves or one aborts the other. 

A nice touch is the rechargable battery. Not that in itself, but the fact that the mouse has a USB cable to charge and can be used while charging. For reference, the original MXneeded to 'rest' in a charger stand to refresh. Battery life is very good and the need to tether the Performance MX is nicely low. (My ASUS Sabertooth motherboard actually provides power to the USB ports in sleep mode which makes it easy to recharge when not in use and keep the tether for emergencies.) Please note that the unifying receiver is a great idea for supporting hardware (typically newer), but the MX occasionally needs two ports anyway since the receiver needs a USB port as well as the cable for charging.

Overall, I found new love in Logitech's Performance MX, even if it's expensive and the name is all too similar to my Ex (mouse, that is). Where the original MX was good, the Performance MX is great. (... and the MX1100 is a topic better forgotton. ;-)
