mx620 mouse movement calibration

I just bought the logitech mx620 mouse. But there is one thing I am not very happa about. I'm not sure if there is no possibility to calibrate the mouse or i just na't find it in the SetPoin 4.60.122.

So if i move the mouse to the left, the cursor goes left an a litle bit up, and if i move it to the rigt it moves right and down.
Is ther really no way to adjust that ?

I used for 8 years a low budget genius mouse and there was an option to adjust such things. So i can't believe that 8 years later a logitech mouse has no such option.

I would be realy realy realy happy if i could somehow calibrate this mouse.

That is the main question/problem, but i have a side question too.
On the mouse there is a button lefto from the lest mouse button. There is a magnifying glass icon on it. But in SetPoint there is no posibility to select the zoom taks for this button. It's a litte bit ironical thet i can't use the zoom button for zoom.

But all other thinks at this mouse are just perfect.
Thank you for your help.

Re: mx620 mouse movement calibration

Ther is no error in the mouse.
I have this problem because i don't hold my arm at absolut 90 degrees to the desk.

So if i could tell the mouse "i want the cursor on the screen to go to the left when i do theis move" or i want the cursor to go to the rigt wen i do that move...
Is there no possiility for suach calibration of the mouse ?

Hi,
 
as far as I know, there isn't really such a calibration function for this mouse. Some 3rd party applications might be able to do this though.

SetPoint has the option to display an Orientation tab, but only enables it by default on track-ball devices. Install uberOptions to enable this option.

Re: mx620 mouse movement calibration

My mouse just recently started doing this, except it is pretty severe. It's almost unusable. I tried installing uberOptions, but the orientation setting did no good.

I'm losing faith in this mouse. I already replaced it once under warranty because the wheel became very stiff. Now the replacement has a stiff wheel and the orientation is way off.

Same here. Moving from MX610 to MX620. The mouse X/Y axis relationship changed. M705 too.

 

They think you should hold the mouse in discomfort way: Supporting your index finger (2. from left) stretching your fingers towards buttons, not reaching the side buttons by your thumb (1. from left) and rubbing your little finger (5.) arround the table!! Not to mention creepy twisted whrist in PAINFUL position... Try using your mouse for some hours like this!!!

 

Natural position of mouse is slightly (30°) tunred to the left, supporting your middle finger and ring finger (3., 4.) keeping all fingertips off the table. This is like a medical relief position making you happy to allways return to MX6xx shaped mouse.

 

It's a pitty that a low cost mouse (IMHO Genius) over a decade ago had a "move to the right", "move upwards" calibration and Logitech still doesn't have it as a MOST BASIC functionality of all of it's hardware.

 

UberOptions is not maintained anymore

There is no version for SetPoint 6.30. I was unable to install 4.80 (yes, I uninstalled it first) 

 

This is not a problem of the mouse, there is no problem either in the table or in my hand. Don't answer me to turn it off and on again, or to return it to the shop. I think that this is general modern Logitech's policy. They don't even produce mices in this shape anymore.

 

MY SOLUTION:

"Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000"

- smooth (read: crapy) mouse wheel

- delayed and hard middle click (strange: I assigned the middle click to one of the side buttons - no delay now)

- distored by typing on logitech keyboard (not good for gaming) 

- "SetPoint" intergrated to controlpanel->mouse

- no ability / need to calibrate :-) (not really sure if it is unihanded - works fine in my hold)

 

All the negatives are still nothing compared to logitech's discomfort today :smileysad: I will not recommend Logitech to anyone asking for comfort anymore :smileysad: (working in a computer store)
