PRODUCT COMPOSITION (cont'd)
First off, you will receive a package with the USB to
PS/2 convertor, the installation manual and a driver and software CD.
Other than the software and the convertor, you will have
a chance to try out your new optical mouse.
PRODUCT FEATURES & WALKTHROUGH
Once unpacked, you will realize that the MX510 doesn't
look like your everyday generic optical mouse. The holographic effect
is because of Logitech's Reflex Finish and is said to be slightly different
on every unique mouse. Aesthetics is starting to play a vital role in
a peripheral purchase now. With thousands of companies making optical
mice currently, having something slightly more attractive will make
the difference between a purchase or a customer moving on to a competitor's
Seeing that your mouse is one of the most used components
on your computer, comfort has to be a priority. The MX510's ergonomics
can be summed up as being perfect in my books. To compare the MX510
to a standard optical mouse ergonomically would be like comparing that
stiff uncomfortable college dorm room mattress to a Sealy Posturepedic.
They don't even compare, and when you have to go back to a standard
mouse, it just feels down right awkward.
On the left side of the mouse are two buttons which at
default set to be the forward and back buttons associated with Internet
Explorer. Until now, I have never had the chance to use this feature,
but it does sure make surfing a lot more efficient.
