SetPoint Software

Driver / software installation was very painless. Insert the software disc and follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure to install the software before you plug in the USB receiver. After a quick restart, you are in business.

The first screenshot is where you can customize each button on the VX Nano. You can choose from a selection of preset tasks, or specify your own keystrokes. For example, I changed the document flip button to F5, which is refresh. You can also customize the mouse for a particular program, such as Outlook Express, Word or Photoshop CS, just to name a few.

The next section controls mouse movement, and allows you to adjust things like pointer speed, pointer acceleration and pointer trails. Next up is mouse game settings, which allows you to change the way the mouse behaves when a game is detected.

The next bank of options allows you to adjust the scroll wheel. I ended up leaving everything here set to default, but you can adjust vertical and horizontal scroll speed and acceleration. The final screen shows your mouse battery life. Out of the box, the software shows I have about 171 days worth of battery power; not too shabby. Of course, battery life will vary, depending on the user and operating conditions.

That about wraps up the SetPoint software. Let's continue on with some testing and wrap things up with a conclusion.
