Default got the logitech mx....

I just got the logitech mx dou and hooked it up. I am loving it, but it does seem quite a bit faster then my other mouse... is there a way to change that? Whats the most perferred setting? I didn't put in the cd that it came with because it is working fine without it. Should I have?

mx logitechs are a must have, just make sure you stay current with the most recent drivers or some things don't work!

hmm was that with a rebate or something? Everywhere else it was the same price plus I was originally gonna get the mx510 and logitech elite seperatly which would be the exct same price. Ok some extra function keys aren't working at it is probably because I didn't install the cd.

well let's see . . .

at compusa, it was 79.99 + tax = $86.58

$20 rebate from compusa = $66.58

$10 rebate from logitech = $56.58 . . .

you got suckered . . .

and since the function keys are purely logitech, yeah, you gotta install mouseware and i touch (WHICH IS AWESOME!)
