Good mouse, though I'm surprised they're still making them since it's 2 models behind now. Maybe new old stock?

I've since moved onto the newer 2 and 2s models. Main difference is lighter and rechargeable, with BT / RF capability (smaller pico dongle for RF). I think it's worth it when they go on sale for $50-60

Great mouse! I had this, the 2 and the 2s. I can't go back to no rechargability, but if this is the only option, I can recommend it!

It's possibly old end-of-life stock...

Yes, this is super old stock. It's not even part of Logitech's current mouse lineup anymore. It's now "archived" in the support section of their website with minimal info on it. The new ones seem so superior in comparison to this one, but then again, you can rarely go wrong with a Logitech mouse. All my mice are Logitech except for my notebook mouse, which is Microsoft's mobile mouse that I got for $8.00 when regular price was $29.99. Hey, can't say no to a good deal! lol Face With Tears Of Joy
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉

This was a really good mouse but the left click button develops some double click issues over time. I went through about 3 of them on warranty because of this issue

Logitech Darkfield Laser Tracking provides precise cursor control on virtually any surface, even glass tables (4 mm minimum thickness) where optical and standard laser mice fail.
I used to have a glass table, regular mice couldn't track but this one would.

I find the glass tracking aspect important.
pre-covid.. when i used to travel for work.. most hotels have glass tables for the computer table. I have to use the menu as the mouse pad.. but it is annoying

I'm actually inclined to prefer this over the newer Anywhere models because it is AA battery-powered. The newer ones may be rechargeable, but I'm not a big fan of anything that uses batteries that I can't easily replace. Plus, it's not like mice burn through batteries. I have a Logitech M510 that's still going strong years later and have only changed the batteries about three times in the span of about 6 years. The only reason why I am considering replacing my current mouse is because I want to free up USB ports and because the M510 doesn't track well on some surfaces (i.e. glossy plywood).

That said, if the newer ones do not suffer from the reported double-click problem, then it is definitely a point in favour for them.

good tracking (including glass tables) and form factor for on the go, but gets the double clicking issue after a while - had to rma 2 of them and just decided to get an mx master instead.

Actually, this particular model eats through batteries like a hungry piranha.
I have two of them, and the one that sees moderate daily use needs fresh batteries every six weeks or so.
Granted, I use rechargeable Eneloops, so that's not too big of a problem, but it would be wrong to think that it's as energy-efficient as other Logitech models.
It's not. The Logitech M720 Triathlon, for instance - which was on sale recently at Costco/Amazon (see the respective threads) - is advertised as being able to squeeze two years of life (!) out of a single fresh battery.

*edit* I would venture to guess that the Darkfield technology is the culprit for such high energy demands. If you look at the description for the Anywhere MX 2 (the updated model), it says "Rechargeable (2 months maximum between full charges)" - which mirrors my own experience.

This is an old and obsolete model that's not in a "current" product anymore on Logitech's. It's been relegated to the "legacy product" part of their website. May have been a good mouse at one point, but not anymore with much better mice that has since eclipsed it.

I stand corrected then. Still, I rather quite prefer the option to change batteries on relatively low-energy devices: I don't like how the lifetime of many electronics nowadays are constrained by the number of recharge cycles.

I have the M720 Triathalon mouse and I swear by it. It's one of the best wireless mice I've bought. Super reliable, comfortable and accurate. Very easy on the battery. I'm onto my 3rd year owning this mouse and I have only changed the battery once (the OEM battery). I'm only on my second battery which is a Duracell and not the dollar store stuff. I never turn off this mouse either when I turn off my PC. It also only runs off a single AA battery! Be on the lookout for the M720 to go on sale from time to time. I've used mine so much, the primary mouse button is shiny on the spot where my finger normally rests on.

Eh? You can see clearly that the Razer you posted is a wired mouse. This one is wireless, and works on any surface.
Otherwise, they're both mice, and whether you buy one or another depends on your personal preference and needs.

They have completely different purposes, one is a productivity on the go mouse the form factor is very small, the other is for gaming and of a standard size.

If you are not using it for mobile purposes I'd just stick with the standard size mouse.
