Logitech currently has the “Ferrari of notebook mice” – the VX Revolution – to which we’ve given a stellar review. It’s a great product, but sports a hefty price tag and it’s a little too big considering it’s a laptop mouse. There’s now a viable alternative from Logitech in terms of size and price: the V220 cordless optical mouse. It has some cool features (rubber grip, programmable scroll wheel) and some cost-effective solutions, like having an optical sensor instead of a laser. But this doesn’t mean it’s any less precise than its laser-based counterparts, as we’ll see further along in this review.
