Logitech MX Air (Entertainment) detailed review

 


Cord-free, surface-free control



Revolutionary products are hard to come by, and the Logitech MX Air is one we’ve been eyeing since its release. The MX Air works something like the Nintendo Wii’s innovative Wiimote.

 The MX Air is unlike any other mouse. It’s a handheld controller that you can wave about to move the pointer on the screen. It’s definitely attractive with its sleek streamlined shape. It’s also very light and sports a glossy black finish with a chrome metallic surface on the back. The shape of the mouse has been designed with comfort in mind—but it does get slippery after long hours of use with sweaty palms.

There are two mouse buttons, but no middle click button, though you can assign the function to one of the other buttons using the bundled SetPoint software. There’s a touch panel between the main mouse buttons, and you can run your fingers on the panel to scroll.

It has to be said the mouse is really difficult to get started with, but over time it becomes more usable. For those who can’t use it, there’s also a laser sensor under the mouse so you can use the same device on your desk like a regular wireless mouse. The drivers allow you to set separate sensitivity settings for the mouse when on the desk and when off it. The mouse is very accurate, and any inaccuracy you might experience is more likely because of the human hand not being steady enough.

Playing FPS games on it is very difficult and close to impossible in air (we just thought we’d try), but it’s a decent mouse on the desk. It makes a lot of sense as a controller for a Media Center PC and it also makes a good presentation tool. It’s a good product that does its job well, but Rs 8,995 seems like a lot to pay for the novelty.
