Lognetmedia ML-903 ICON 2000DPI Laser Mousehardnrg -
This mouse packed light and arrived without a manual or any software/driver CD. A bit odd, I thought at first, but then again I don't use the Logitech drivers or software for my Logitech MX518 mouse. I can't remember actually reading a manual either. If you think about it, do you really need a manual or software for any mouse? It's not as if it has loads of extra multimedia buttons that some keyboards have.
So, to install it, you simply connect it to a free USB port and it is installed as a HID-compliant input device. If you take a look at the Device Manager you can see these types of devices listed under Human Interface Devices. For comparison, here is my Logitech MX518:
The Logitech MX518 simply uses the built-in Microsoft drivers.
And here is the Lognetmedia ML-903. Notice it uses the Microsoft laser mouse driver and needs no additional drivers or software. A simple approach to adding input hardware, and really how I think it should be for all mice.
The specs on the box are very terse and to-the-point. They inform you of all the relevant ratings and abilities, but I think some of the acronyms should be expanded or explained with a feature-benefit note next to them or listed underneath. An example is the "FPS: 7080" detail. What does this mean? I assume it means a sampling rate of 7080 frames per second, but how does that work together with the Mouse Rate of 500 Hz? It's not entirely clear and I think if a specification is going to be listed on the box (highlighted in red, so obviously a main selling point) it should be made more obvious what the feature provides to the user.

The product page for the ML-903 is much better at explaining the specifications and features and I really think the following information should be included in the packaging:
Lognetmedia mL-903 Icon is the first Polish high-end mouse for pro-gamers and graphic designers.
It has a heart of well-known ADNS-6010 Agilent sensor of 2000dpi resolution, used previously in mice like Razer Copperhead and Logitech G5. It guarantees reliable speed of 114cm/s and acceletation of 20 g, image sampling of 6.4 Mpix/sec, 7080 FPS and reaction time below 1ms.
mL-903 Icon has been equipped with five Quick Click buttons, which can be pressed even more than 8 times a second. Its ergonomy provides the user the required usage comfort.
Beneath a 110 g light mouse there are PTFE (politetrafluoroethylene) Speedfire feet of high-level slip characteristics.
Lognetmedia mL-903 ICON is a high-end product that guarantees a problem-free work at large variety of surfaces. A legendary ADNS-6010 reputable Agilent sensor and extra slippery PTFE (politetrafluoroethylene) feet make a mousepad absolutely unnecessary.
