Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse

Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse


For her birthday, I bought Mama Melissa a Logitech V220 wireless mouse for her Windows 7 desktop. After seeing how much she enjoyed the freedom of being wireless, I went and purchased my own. I, however, ended up with the Logitech M325 model.

I can personally attest to the fact that this mouse will work on both Windows XP SP3 and Ubuntu 8.10. I'm now using Ubuntu 13.10 and it works FLAWLESSLY.

 
Mouse itself – Color is 'Brilliant Rose' but it looks more like a 'Metallic Red' in actuality.

 
Mouse in comparison to keyboard

 
Unifying receiver itself – very tiny and hardly noticeable when in USB port.
Yes, I realize the receiver is 'upside down.' Apparently, Dell installed them this way.

I used to be a 'Wired' girl my whole life... any peripheral I used on my systems HAD to be wired and P/S2. I inherited this from the fact that my VERY first computer that used separate peripherals, everything was wired and used P/S2 connectors. Everything worked, and I saw no reason to change it. But, as systems become more modern, the P/S2 connector was phased out. So, going wireless was a HUGE change for me.

This mouse works like any other mouse, except there is no wire to tangle and catch. The response is awesome; quick and precise. Buttons click cleanly and there is no 'multiple click syndrome' as I recall wired mice developing. Wheel scrolls beautifully and quietly, with minimal vibration to the finger.

Only issue I could see disabled people having is that this mouse is SMALL. It seems to be designed more as a laptop mouse or a travel mouse. When holding the mouse, my fingers hang over the top of the mouse. This causes a number of unintentional right clicks. It does become QUITE annoying while trying to surf the web or design graphics. This won't be an issue for those with smaller hands.

This mouse is available from Logitech for $29.99 plus shipping and tax (New) or from eBay seller outletmp3 for $13.88 with FREE shipping.

FINAL VERDICT
The Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse is a sturdy mouse that works as described. It comes in a plethora of colors and designs to choose from.
