Looks good next to my black A1200 and has a small 9-pin casing at the end which looks like the Cocolino, which is a good adapter. But with this you don't have to buy the adapter separately, which makes this option lower cost in total. Which is why I got it. Good to have.

I don't recommend this for pixel graphics artists - because this has built in hardware acceleration (Logitech sensor?) - draw circles and you get rounded rectangles. For this, or if you just hate acceleration, I recommend another mouse that comes with a PS/2 to USB adapter, and a 9-pin adapter. (Extra adapter will require ~4cm/1.5" more space behind your Amiga - if the mouse port is on the back.)

But for anything else (I tested games also) it's plug-and-play, and the DPI is not too high for Amiga, like new opticals or laser mice. I did test hotplugging too, and it works. The sensor works with 4 different surfaces, including my frosted glass mouse mat, no problem there.
