I just bought a Logitech LX 8 cordless laser mouse yesterday, and I thought I'd post and let people interested in buying this mouse know that it doesn't come with a drivers disk! You have to download the drivers from their website.
The mouse itself is great, ambidextrous which is what I need as I'm left handed and I can't complain about the hardware. I know that Internet access is taken for granted now days but not everyone has their computer connected, I just feel Logitech are being a bit stingy in failing to supply a disk.
Is this going to be the latest trend now, hardware supplied without physical driver disks? I don't know, anything to save a few pennies.
[email protected]'s right, if you buy a mouse with more than 3 buttons then you're going to need dedicated drivers as the default Windows ones don't have the settings, I for one hate using a browser now without the back and forward buttons on the mouse. Also on some high precision mice like laser gaming ones you'll need the drivers to get the real fine control needed.
Windows default drivers are fine for most occasions but to get the extra benefit from multi button or gaming mice you need the drivers.
I also like to receieve the driver disk cd and manual. Yes most people have internet acces but not everyone does.
It makes financial sense not to include paper or a driver cd. It also makes enviromental sense as well. So this probely goes someway towards cutting the carbon footprint. And if you asked them I'm sure they would site enviromental concerns and being able to offer the produce at a cheaper price.
So i beleieve this will be a growing trend not to include these things.
