Review of the Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse (with Unifying Receiver)

E-mail Print PDF

I bought this mouse a couple months ago for use with my Samsung Series 7 Slate. I was originally looking for a Bluetooth mouse so I wouldn't need to plug in a receiver, but I couldn't find one that looked like a good option. I want something a little smaller than standard, with a power switch and ideally I'd like it to match the devices I use it with. I finally tried the Logitech M325 with a Unifying Receiver.

The unifying receiver is small and works well. I've had no trouble with it and can leave it in my S7S unless I need to use the one USB port for something else. It almost never comes up, but is a minor annoyance. On the other hand, when I remove the receiver, I can use pen or touch input temporarily. I have found an advantage to using the receiver. If I decide to use my laptop or my wife's laptop and need a mouse, I can just move the receiver from my S7S or my desktop PC and use the devices that are already paired with it. The pairing follows the receiver, not the computer. I use a Logitech keyboard and mouse with a Unifying receiver on my gaming system at home since it's attached to my television. Sometimes I borrow the mouse to use with a laptop by just moving the receiver. I don't generally use that mouse for shooters though. I'll write up my gaming setup in a future article.

I haven't had to change the battery yet, and there is a power switch to turn off the mouse so it doesn't keep waking my tablet every time my bag moves. The mouse uses a standard AA battery and the battery compartment has a slot for storing the receiver so you don't lose it if you need to keep it out of your tablet or laptop for a while.

It works on every surface for me so far, but not well on glass. When on glass the mouse pointer still moves, just sluggishly. Using a piece of paper or a notebook fixes this. Otherwise, I've had no trouble using the mouse on the train, on a couch, at a desk, or in bed. It's never bounced off the table or even moved on its own much when on the train. I use a mouse on the train because it can be difficult to touch the screen accurately when you and the table are bouncing around. I don't have nearly as many misses with the mouse.

The mouse is a little smaller than standard, but that's what I want for a travel mouse. The mouse wheel is the smooth scrolling type, being a gamer I prefer the clicky type. I don't use this mouse for serious gaming, so it isn't a deal breaker. The mouse wheel can also be pressed left or right although I don't use these presses. The only thing that might make me trade in this mouse is how loud the button clicks are. If I'm on the train and using the mouse a lot (maybe playing a little Faster Than Light, maybe) I probably annoy the nearby passengers a bit with the constant clicks.

Most importantly, the mouse just works. Every time I turn on the switch it makes an instant connection to my tablet. I never have to mess with drivers or reboot, or turn it off and on. It just connects and goes. If something happened to my Logitech M325, I would have no problems replacing it with an identical mouse. You can find these as low as $15 on Amazon.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
