Perfect For Purpose,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech M525 Wireless Mouse - Black (Accessory)
When I started looking for a wireless mouse, I wanted something that was small enough to be portable but big enough to be comfortable. After lots of searching, I came across this model which seemed to be a good compromise of all the features anyone could want.
Pro's : Perfect size, comfortable, accurate and very responsive on any surface. Wireless USB dongle is tiny so can be left in your laptop if you like and it firmly fits inside the mouse for storage. Works out of the box for standard functions and can be re-configured using software downloadable from the Logitech website. Once out of the packaging, I was up and running in less than one minute and most of that time was trying to get the supplied batteries out of the plastic packaging! Mouse wheel moves left and right as well as the standard back and forth and button push for additional functionality. Good solid construction so feels like it could take a few knocks during travel and still perform well. I've tested the range a bit by leaving my laptop on my desk then using the mouse from a colleague's desk some distance away and my eyesight on the mouse pointer failed before the mouse did! Too soon to comment on battery life but no trouble so far and a there's a neat little power switch on the underside to switch it off when not in use. All this and it looks and feels good too!
Cons : Nothing of any major consequence, just a few points to note.
1. As with all mice of this type, it's a little heavier than a wired mouse but almost all of the weight is the batteries.
2. The mouse wheel almost free-wheels rather than the usual 'notch' rotation of most mice - not a problem but may not be to everyone's liking.
3. Surprisingly, my biggest gripe is the packaging (Logitech's not Amazon's delivery packaging). It's fairly large and solid for what it contains and would look good on a store shelf but you'll need a knife or scissors to get the mouse out of the clear plastic part of the packaging. It took far longer to get the mouse out of the packaging than it did do check the instructions, install the batteries, install the dongle and P&P drivers and get working with it!
