Examination:

The Logitech MX1100 is larger than many other mice (including those from Logitech), but it is designed for maximum comfort with its contoured shape. The MX1100 is designed to accommodate both the palm and fingertips. The MX1100 does not have any LEDs or unique colors like say the latest Razer mice, but this is not being marketed as one for gamers or enthusiasts. Both sides of the mouse are coated in a rubber-like material to provide a good grip.

On the side of the mouse are back and forward buttons, for use in Firefox or other applications for moving forward and backwards. Below that is what Logitech refers to as its stealth button, which is a concealed button that is clicked when pushing down on the mouse. This button can be programmed to any event. Near the back/forward buttons but along the top edge of the mouse are the DPI adjustment buttons. The Logitech MX1100 can be adjusted from 400 to 1600 DPI using these controls.

Between the standard left and right buttons on the MX1100 is the scroll wheel. In addition to being able to scroll vertically, the wheel can also pivot to the left and right in order to provide scrolling support horizontally as well. The MX1100 also supports the standard scroll speed or "hyper fast" scrolling of large documents, which can be toggled using the button behind the scroll wheel. There are no buttons on the right hand side of the mouse or elsewhere.

On the bottom of the mouse is the battery compartment, on/off switch, laser sensor, and Teflon pads. The Logitech MX1100 requires two AA batteries to operate, but under normal usage, these batteries should last several months. Ideally, we prefer rechargeable cordless mice, but if the two batteries end up lasting several months, we will be satisfied. The three Teflon pads on the MX1100 are replaceable.
