Today, Logitech took the computer mouse where no mouse has gone before. With Logitech Darkfield Laser Tracking, you can use your mouse virtually anywhere you want - including clear glass (that's at least 4 mm thick) and high-gloss surfaces. This new technology is available in the Logitech Performance Mouse MX and the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX, giving you the option of a full-size mouse or a more compact, notebook mouse.

40% of people have a glass surface in their home...
more like 100%. windows, biatch!

seems good. i hope this makes it into more mice, as we can always use more surfaces for them to work on.

So they're charging an obscene amount for something that an el cheapo mouse that I purchased 3 years ago can do? The mouse I'm talking about is the Cyber Snipa Intelliscope, worked fine on my garden table with a glass surface when I went outside for a bit of gaming on the lappy, granted the table was exposed to the northern weather so the surface was a little rough but still. Solution looking for a problem if you ask me.
@Mussels Sure it's good that they can use mice on more surfaces but really what is the issue here? You won't be using these mice for gaming anyway so it negates the main advantage of being able to use any surface (any surface means just using the table as a giant mouse pad).

Only gamers are allowed to have fancy glass/glossy furniture? Is that a new law or something?

No just you lose the advantage of being able to use an incredibly large mousing surface. Average users would be much better served by buying a 20p mouse mat (yes it's possible, Tesco does them) and a far cheaper mouse, a piece of paper will usually accompany a laptop wherever it goes so even that will do with a flat surface.

Mouse pads looks like shit, and I hate using them. The point of buying an optical mouse, IMO, is to NOT have to use a mouse pad.

This is great for anyone that has a glass desk and an optical mouse. I know it took me a while to find a mouse that would work on my girlfriends glass desk, the G7 works perfectly already though, so no need to buy this mouse for me...

mmm not really u buy a good mouse cause u want a good acurate mouse. You buy a mousepad so you can choose your surface and it never changes. After buying a great mousepad (stealseries SX) i can say its worth the invistment. When u think of mousepad right off you think of that puppy one your aunt got for u from costco, or thethe one u used 10 years ago with a ball mouse. None of the profesional ones look "like shit" or go to shit, if u get the right one. I have a G9 it works on glass too but dosnt mean i want that surface and its not why i bought it.
