Logitech Wireless Mouse M525 Reviewed

My Corded Mouse Died

Last week I found myself with a computer mouse that no longer worked, I purchased the Logitech Wireless Mouse M525 to replace it. There are several reasons that I love my choice, so let me tell what they are.

To begin with, the size surprised me. Let me explain. I have small hands which may seem like a silly thing to bring up. In this case, the size of my hands is relevant. You see, my hands are small enough that to get the best fit in gloves I have to get a size for children. To get back to my point, most of the computer mice that I have owned were rather big for my hand. My wrist would have an uncomfortable bend to it while I used the mouse. Not so, with this wireless mouse! It is small, fitting nicely into my hand. My wrist now lays flat which is much more comfortable. When I made my purchase this was not a factor that helped me make my decision; it was just a very nice surprise.

My first choice was that it was compatible with several OS (operating systems) so I wasn't concerned that it might not work with my older laptop. I plugged it in and voila it worked immediately. 

The tiny little USB receiver can be stored in a little compartment on the underbelly of the mouse. That makes it convenient for travel. I also liked that the batteries have a considerably long life. Depending on how much mileage you have on your clicking and scrolling activity, the batteries can last up to 3 years. Another feature on the underbelly is an on/off switch. I love that! I can save some juice on those batteries by turning off the mouse when I power down each evening.

Now for the important part, the performance! I am thrilled with how this mouse allows the moving of the cursor across the screen, it is smooth and precise. What really impresses me is the scrolling wheel. Those long pages on the internet are not so difficult to scroll through now. Another feature is that I can use the wheel to go forward and backward on pages by pushing the wheel to the left or right. My corded mouse couldn't do that. It has turned out to be a nice feature.

So, if you are in the market for a new computer mouse, I can highly recommend the Logitech Wireless Mouse M525. I am extremely happy with my purchase. It fits nicely in my hand, works with speed and precision and it did not put much of a dent into my budget. You will even have a choice in the color of the mouse, I loved the red but you might like the black, navy or white one.

  1. I'm sold on the Logitech wireless computer mouse too, Beverly, for many of the same reasons you list. I had to replace mine about a year or so ago and love my mouse.

  2. I am so glad you found a new mouse that you love! They really do make a huge difference in our daily work online. I would never want another mouse without a scroll wheel either. I love that feature! Hooray for Logitech!!!

  3. This is one of my faves, if not my fave mouse - and wireless is of course the only way to go - I use a mouse with my laptop all the time (versus the built-in mouse pad on it) and these ones are excellent quality imo. The scroll button is very handy indeed.

  4. I'm looking at my two Logitech mice now -- a corded for Windows and a wireless for my iMAC. One is wired because the two desktops are next to each other and I don't want too many wireless signals going at once. I do love the wireless one best. Both have scroll wheels. The right mouse is very important!

  5. You know I have never given my mouse too much thought. But now that I see this cordless one, I'm thinking it would be a great asset. Right now my corded mouse works just fine, but if the day comes when that mouse bites the dust, you can bet I will check out this model and style. Thanks Bev!
