SoftwareThe installation of Logitech's SetPoint software is identical across all their products. It does not require a restart and features a clean, uniform, step by step installation guide.
After the installation, the software establishes a connection with the mouse, which consists of three easy steps. It is very easy to set up even if you do this for the first time.
The software is parted into two areas by the use of tabs. The first is called 'My Mouse'. This is where you can configure all the attributes of the V470. The pointing device does not really have a lot of programmable buttons. Due to the the symmetrical shape, even left handed users should be able to use it without any problems. Even though the V470 is not marketed as a gaming mouse, you may set a game mode, to activate certain settings when playing a game.
The last two menu item give you the possibility to select what device to connect to, while the other holds information about the status of the batteries. As you can see the status of the Duracell AAs is good in this picture. You may also select a different device to check its status.
The second part of the software is called 'Tools'. It holds general information about the software version and also hides the functionality to update the software in the second tab with a Logitech symbol. The last tab, a bluetooth icon gives you the option to connect a further device with the use of the Windows Bluetooh connection wizard.
[page]Performance & Conclusion[/page]
Feel & PerformanceUsing the V470 feels very good right away. It is made of plastic, which does make the pointing device very light. The center of gravity is moved back quite a bit as soon as the batteries are placed into the mouse, which makes movement comfortable and precise. Logitech has placed the only two buttons within the general shape of the V470.
Due to the wireless nature of the mouse, you will have to reconnect it everytime the notebook is turned off. This is done easily with the help of the software. Even though the V470 is not intended for gaming, it works perfecly fine, as it is not as small as some other notebook mice. Office work on the other hand is incredibly comfortable as well.
This makes the V470 a very balanced pointing device, with a good compromise between size and portability.

Logitech MK470 Slim Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo Review
I don’t know about you – but since school has started back, I feel like a hamster on a wheel. It’s a continuous run, most days I feel like I am getting no where – but the kids are obviously growing up, so guess I am doing something right!
Being on carpool duty, means this mom is working wherever possible. While I love working from my desktop – several times a week, it’s in the car or at Starbucks. At least at Starbucks, I can caffeinate and don’t look like the weirdo talking to herself in the car.I do a ton of writing and designing. To effectively work on my Macbook – I really need a keyboard and mouse to work my best. Last week, our friends at Logitech sent over their Logitech MK470 wireless keyboard and mouse combo to review. This set has been a game changer!

Logitech Keyboard and Mouse Combo Set
The MK470 is a combo set that includes both the slim keyboard and mouse. That’s right, you don’t have to choose if you like the mouse or keyboard, you get both!
If you are looking fro a slim keyboard and slim mouse, this is your combo!
Awesome Battery Life
The Logitech MK470 keyboard has a 36-month battery life. Batteries are included for both keyboard and mouse. And the Logitech MK470 mouse has a battery life of 18-months!
You won’t sound like the crazy mad person at Starbucks as you are banging on your keyboard if you are using the Logitech MK470 keyboard! The keys aren’t loud and obnoxious, which for me – who tends to be a crazy typer – is a beautiful perk!
Single Dongle for Both Keyboard and Mouse
With the Logitech MK470 set, there is just 1 dongle that works for both the keyboard and mouse. I keep mine in my Macbook pro, but there is a storage space in the mouse for safe keeping.
Great Price for a Great Keyboard Mouse Combo Set
The Logitech MK470 keyboard and mouse combo set is a great value retailing at $49.99. (Available on Amazon)
No Mousepad Needed
So while I know you may read, no mousepad needed and think – uh yeah. You would be amazed at how many computer mice still need mousepads! The MK470 mouse works no problem at our Starbucks, on my coffee table, desk, dining room table, car console – you know all the places that I pop open my computer and need to use my mouse at.

Great for Travel
If you travel or prefer to use a keyboard and mouse on the go, the MK470 set is for you. With the slim profile, it fits perfectly into my laptop bag. I don’t have to worry about battery life.
And did I mention how much I love the quietness of keyboard? A quiet keyboard is a huge perk that I didn’t realize I needed in my life.
(That said, I am sure the other Starbucks workers are like PRAISE JESUS, this woman isn’t banging on her keyboard anymore!)
And that’s all we got for the Logitech MK470 Slim Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo Review!
