MicroGear Scroll Wheel

A proprietary Logitech scroll wheel technology that assists users in being able to better scroll with their mouse. MicroGear Scroll Wheel enables free-spin scrolling as well as click-to-click scrolling. In contrast to other scroll wheels, mice with MicroGear Scroll Wheel have a refined click-to-click ratcheting and mechanical rotational sensors have been replaced with high-precision optics designed to boost scrolling accuracy. The MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel from Logitech operates in two distinct modes;

  1. Free-spin mode: the ratchet-scrolling mechanism retracts, allowing the wheel to spin for up to seven seconds, providing hyper-fast, nearly frictionless long-distance scrolling.
  2. Click-to-click mode: the wheel allows users to navigate small distances with great precision, such as individual spreadsheet rows, or small
    vertical distances in a document or Web page.
