2 thumb buttons instead of that silly wheel would be my first thought, but to each his own.

Hey Dr_BenD_over, there are actually 2 thumb buttons just above the thumb wheel. I've owned the Revolution for 10 months now and it is one of the best mouse I've ever owned. The draw back for the Revolution is the price, but I see that's going down (got mine at Best Buy on boxing week sale for $60 ) and the setpoint software that comes with the mouse is OK, but you can get uberOptions that will let you configure the hell out of it. uberOptions Wiki | Main / uberOptions

Did they revise it or something? Or am I thinking of the wrong mouse...

Can't see myself buying one but atleast they're getting away from the internal battery. I swore I'd never buy another cordless with an internal battery. I use a mx1000 and like it quite a bit but might try a more gaming suited mouse next time around.

I absolutely loved my MX1000 but recently upgraded to a MX Revolution in December. It took a while to get use to the new feel but it feels awesome and I've enjoyed it very much. Best part I got it for $49 from Dell.ca when it was on sale back in November so it was a great value too. Haven't decided what to do with my MX1000 yet though, it still works perfectly after around 3.5 years of use. My previous mouse before that was a MX700 which was my first Logitech mouse after I switched from Microsoft mice I loved to much for over a decade.

That being said I keep seeing people talking about gaming mice. I use my MX Revolution for gaming and it seems fine, do these Razer, Logitech G9, Microsoft Sidewinder, SteelSeries, etc gaming mice really make any difference? I know I have a MX518 gaming mouse connected to my wifes PC and it is a great mouse, and I only paid $20 for it at Staples but I much prefer my MX Revolution or MX1000. I like a bigger mouse, what do these gaming mice offer that my MX Revolution doesn't.

Well i have the revolution (sp)
and its a fantastic mouse IMO !! I also have a razor lychiesis (sp) and its a good mouse as well , i feel the razor is better suited for games , even tho i will never use 4000 dpi i think lol
but there is def no lag , no need to recharge the razor etc etc .
i will say i love the mx rev for everyday computing tho .
i also feel the mx is a much better feeling mouse in my hand (a palmer here )
i am thinking of selling my mx rev just for the fact i havnt used it in a while:)

I've been through them all...
MX510, MX518, MX Revolution, VX Nano (use that for my laptop), but my favorite was my G7...I never should have gotten rid of it. Second place goes to the MX518.

Never did try the MX1000...maybe the 1100...who knows!
