LOGITECH CORPORATE PROFILE
Logitech designs, manufactures and markets personal interface
products that enable people to effectively work, play, and communicate
in the digital world. The company's products combine essential core
technologies, continuing innovation, award-winning industrial design
and excellent price performance.
During the past few years, Logitech has significantly
broadened its product offering and increased its presence in the retail
sector, as consumers enhance their basic systems with more fully featured
interface devices that add functionality and cordless freedom to their
desktops, as well as supplementary devices designed for new applications
and specific purposes such as gaming, multimedia or visual communication
on the Internet.
Today, Logitech's retail business accounts for more than
80 percent of its revenue. To provide the market with a broadening array
of best-of-category products, Logitech's business model calls for supplementing
its internal engineering and manufacturing strength with additional
products and technologies through a combination of strategic acquisitions
and industry partnerships.
Since the introduction of optical mice to the everyday
computer user, regular mechanical ball mice have dropped out of existence.
With no moving parts, no cleaning required along with accurate multi-surface
capability, optical mice will be the choice mousing peripheral for several
years to come.
To most people, an optical mouse is an optical mouse.
Other than the brand name, no other real characteristic is recognized
by the mainstream computer user. Any optical mouse upgrade is leaps
and bounds better than the irritating mechanical variety. In normal
internet and office use, the standard everyday optical mouse from any
manufacturer should be perfectly fine. But for a gamer, everyday will
just not cut it.
Today I will be reviewing the MX510 performance optical
mouse from Logitech. With enhanced features targeted towards smoother
and more accurate gaming performance, let's see how well this mouse
does in the Tweaknews gaming rig.
