Neil:

  1. I don't know what "heavy duty" buttons are.
  2. I've gone about 3 weeks between charges. If it runs low, it will give a full day's usage from a quick, 4 minute charge.
  3. It uses either bluetooth or the Unifying receiver.

It also uses Logitech's Darkfield laser giving it the ability to track on almost any surface, even glass!

Hi Dave,

I just mean that the buttons are designed to hold up to millions of clicks, or not. I would guess that they are - since this is Logitech's top of the line mouse (though not specifically called a gaming mouse).

Here is a useful review - that mentions the buttons are rated for 10 Million clicks:

So, not as long as the 60 Million keystrokes on my new Corsair K70 keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches - but pretty good, nonetheless.

I like that it has features that are useful for Macs - I upgraded to the latest version of OS X and it broke my Magic Mouse. :-( I am using a Logitech M-705, which does not have very robust buttons. It has AMAZING battery life - like 3+ YEARS, but for me, the buttons break before the batteries run low.
