Logitech G7 Laser Mouse Reviewskinny - May 23, 2006
Installing the G7 is a relatively simple exercise. Turn your computer on. Plug the USB charging station into a free USB port on your computer. Then plug the wireless receiver into the charging station. Place one of the two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries into the charger. There are two charging modes available, Normal and Boost. Boost requires a powered USB port or hub, while normal with work with both powered and unpowered. Charging time in Boost mode is 2 hours, and 10 hours in Normal mode. Once the battery is charged, remove it from the charging station, and plug it into the bottom of the mouse.
Your mouse should automatically be recognized by your operating system, but to use all the features included, you must install the supplied software. This is done by inserting the included CD into your computer, and following the onscreen instructions. This will install Setpoint, which allows the user to alter mouse settings, including button presses, battery warning levels and sensitivity settings. It also allows you to set specific mouse characteristics for specific programs.
