My replacement Anywhere MX just arrived. This one also wobbles a bit. I'm starting to think they all do that, some people just aren't as anal about these things as I am.

On a mouse pad, you can't tell, but on a hardwood desk or glass, you can, and it drives me bananas.




That would drive me nuts too. Mine really does not wobble at all so it seems like something is not right. I usually use mine on a glass/wood surface (hotels). Maybe the pads on the bottom of the mouse need to be worn in a little?

Interestingly, I was running it on one battery. Now that I added the second battery, the wobbling diminished, to the point where I think I can live with it.

For sure! In retrospect, the old Amiga's mouse was probably the most robust of the ball ones I've used. That thing is still perfectly functional. When I moved to a PC, I couldn't wait to get rid of the ball mouse!

Oh, and now that you mention it, this Logitech has a very tiny amount of wobble. I don't like that, either.

Ha! The original Amiga mouse was tough to kill, but the wheel did require some cleaning now an then. Mine still sits somewhere in my parents' basement...

I'll have to dig around and see if I can find mine. The only thing that doesn't work on the Amiga is the monitor's on-off switch. It's gotten finnicky over the years.

I couldn't afford a dedicated monitor for the Amiga. The solution was to purchase one of those little brick modulators that would convert video signal into RF (RCA) so that it could be hooked up to a TV. Mine still works, I think, although it's not been used in probably 10 years or more.

My Amiga still works, I'm sure, but I don't know how well the data on the floppies has held up over all these years. It might be interesting to find out.

I just bought a Logitech M325 this afternoon. They were on sale at OfficeMax/OfficeDepot. $16.99 (from $29.99).

Overall, I like the mouse. I do like the "hybrid" wheel, where it's not too notchy, but it's also not completely smooth...you can feel SOME texture. It does have four distinct feet/pads, and I do think that's odd; most mice I've used have three (so you don't get the wobble). This one, however, despite having four pads, is wobble-free. I like the rubberized side grips, but will concede that it's a little small in my hand.

I'm impressed how fast it pairs to its Unifying dongle. I mean, it's IMMEDIATE that the mouse works on the computer. I've tried it in Windows 8.1, Windows XP, and on our Samsung Chromebook. It works a treat on all of them. I have a bunch of wired mice, but couldn't pass up the chance to try this one at just over half of the regular retail price. (Though I see that Amazon has them for between $15 and $20 on Prime...so if I want another, I can get one easily and for a similar price.)

Pete, did you buy another V450 off eBay?

Nope. All the V450s on eBay are either used or refurbished. I decided not to go that route.

So far I'm getting used to the Anywhere MX, and I think I'm going to keep it. It is slightly bigger than the M325, but still not a full size. It has a very solid feel to it, and it comes with a little travel case, which I like as I do travel with it quite a bit.
