Logitech Corded Mouse M500
Advantages: Looks good works even better
I currently use a Mac at work and find the Apple mice incredibly annoying so decided to get a Logitech, as they appear to be best in the market. Now a mouse is nothing to get over excited about but this was amazing compared to my old Apple one.
I ordered my mouse from amazon for around £25, free delivery. The mouse arrived within a few days and was well packaged, as is usually the case with amazon. I unwrapped the mouse, plugged it in an was off. There was no set up required from my end. The mouse came with a disk but I did not install it or even open it. I got the wired mouse (wireless available but I don't find them as responsive and get very frustrated hen they run out of batteries) which is a simple usb connection. Literally plug and play.
The mouse is very well ergonomically designed, allowing the hand to sit easily upon it and naturally rest on the two buttons, with a grove for your thumb.. There are the obvious 2 main left and right clickers, as well as a side up and down arrow button. I have not used the side buttons but believe they can be customised for various uses. There is also a middle scroll button which I find very useful (however most mice these days have one). The scroll wheel can be set to scroll with zero resistance which is very handing for quickly wanting to scroll to the bottom of a long spreadsheet. The wheel also has left and right scrolling abilities which is very handy if working on InDesign or Spreadsheets.
The mouse is very responsive, which is obviously the most important aspect. The cursor speed can be adjusted to suit your needs but obviously this is a function of the pc more than the mouse itself.
The mouse Is not overloaded with buttons, which I like. When looking for the mouse I cam across some with 15+ buttons which is just for too much (although im sure those are aimed at gamers)
As mentioned the mouse cam well packaged and looks very nice too. The dark grey/black finish gives the mouse a high quality look and feel. I have not had any problems with the mouse since I purchased and overall am very happy with it.
The current selling price on Amazon is slightly under £25. For the price the mouse is an excellent tool for any mid/high level user.
Summary: Great mouse for the price
