Recently I was sent a Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse for a few weeks. I’m one of those people who absolutely despises using a track pad and prefer a mouse. Since the mice I work with at the office and home are all wired, I was really keen to try this beauty out.
And it really is gorgeous – available in a range of colours and designs, I was given one of the limited editions to review.
The first thing I noticed was that it was a little heavier than my other mice, but not unpleasantly so. It felt more substantial. Perhaps heavy isn’t the right word… Substantial. Serious work going on here, not airy fairy fluff. It also fits your hand in a way that feels comfortable and natural. The rubber grips on the side also enhances the feel of this mouse in your hand.
The second feature I adored was the scrolling button. Gliding through pages of info has never been such a smooth operation. I did however feel like clicking this button to open links in a new tab was a bit tricky; like it was too sensitive and it would scroll rather than click.
It’s so easy to plug and play; simply slip the micro USB connector into a port, check that you have an AA battery in the mouse, and off you go! The USB connector is small enough to remain plugged in when you travel with your laptop, but should you choose to take it out, you can conveniently store it in the battery compartment to ensure it doesn’t get lost or damaged in your bag.
If you remember to switch the mouse off when not in use, you can apparently get up to 18 months of usage on a single battery – very impressive. In fact, by that time your laptop will be seriously outdated and you might have replaced that before even needing to replace your mouse’s battery.
You can get a Logitech mouse – they have various models available for whatever your needs are, from shops like Makro, DionWired and Incredible Connection.
