PRODUCT INSTALLATION


Installation of the MX900 is exceptionally easy. You simply have to plug the mouse into a free USB port, connect the base into an outlet, install the batteries and your mouse is ready! It's important to note that due to an HID (Human Interface Device) profile in the receiver, your mouse will work as your system is booting up.



From there, you will want to install SetPoint from the CD. SetPoint has replaced MouseWare as the utility of choice to configure your device. It uses a much better interface and gives you more options. SetPoint allows you to also assign customized key commands to certain buttons.



You can see from this image that doing so is quite simple. When I am preparing screenshots and digital pictures for these reviews, I have to use various keyboard shortcuts to speed up the process of formatting the images. I have created actions in Photoshop to help me along. To test out this mouse, I assigned different keyboard shortcuts to the different buttons, and I was able to breeze through all of the review images in no time! What a relief!


I tried the same thing in a couple different games to see how much it would help. I tested various keyboard commands from Warcraft III and actually laughed at how simple certain tasks became. I also tested it in Morrowind, and found that it was especially useful when using multiple spells.



SetPoint allows you to quickly check the charge on your batteries. I found this especially useful, as I did not want to have to keep charging the batteries every night. Batteries only have a certain amount of charges in them, so why waste them if you don't have to. (I could not find any information on the Logitech website detailing how many charges I could expect from these batteries.)



SetPoint also has a Tools page which offers a lot of help for people new to the program and new to Bluetooth technology.



The CD also includes Mobile Phone Suite, which works with Bluetooth mobile phones. With this, you can send and receive text messages between your phone and computer. It is a very user-friendly application.
