Logitech V470 Bluetooth Cordless Laser Mouse Review

Move beyond the touch pad with a comfortable cordless laser mouse for PC or Mac notebooks enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology. No receiver necessary. Mac and Windows users enhance your notebook experience with laser technology that delivers smoother cursor control on more surfaces.

The Logitech V470 Bluetooth cordless laser mouse is a precision laser mouse that connects to your computer through a Bluetooth signal. While the mouse is not designed with any specific function in mind, it is a great mouse for home or business computers that are crowded with USB devices, as its Bluetooth technology means that you won’t have to worry about using a USB receiver to use the mouse.  The range of the mouse is advertised as thirty feet, but I found the range to be closer to roughly twenty feet. In reality this isn’t much of an issue, as most wireless mice have an effective range of about twenty to twenty four feet.

The only real hot key features on the mouse are horizontal scrolling and a zoom function, which can make it easier to scroll through and read pdf files on your computer. The mouse was designed for use specifically with notebooks or laptops, as it requires no USB receiver to stay in your computer for you to use it, and it comes with a protective carrying case that is designed to buffer your mouse from any damage that it might suffer while travelling. A great feature of this mouse is that it works with both Macintosh and Windows based PCs, working on Windows XP, Vista, and 7, and Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later as long as that computer possesses Bluetooth technology (which most modern laptops and notebooks do).

The mouse works off of two double A batteries, which tend to last about three or four months depending on usage. A relatively simple, but still practical and convenient feature, is the on/off switch on the mouse that allows you to preserve the battery life when the mouse is not in use. There is a battery life indicator that will tell you when your batteries are getting low, so you’ll never be caught by surprise while working on your computer. In the end, I would highly recommend this mouse to anyone who does a lot of travelling and needs to maximize their space. The lack of a USB receiver and the protective mouse make this mouse a great choice for those that are constantly travelling on business, and the fact that it works on both Macintosh and Windows based PCs mean that you will always be able to use this mouse regardless of the operating software of your computer.
