Logitech Marathon Mouse M705
Advantages: Simple to install, effortless to use.
Disadvantages: If you are a light user you may find this too costly.
I have owned Logitech mice in the past and when I saw the Logitech Marathon Mouse M705 on sale for £28 in my local computer shop I decided to give it a go. I have seen them online for around £35, so I knew I were getting it at a good price. I were looking for a new mouse as although the Logitech M235 is working strong on my laptop, I needed a new mouse for my new Home PC.
The packaging is quite simple, coming in a green box. The mouse comes complete with two batteries, instruction guide, USB Connector and CD-ROM installation. The mouse carries a 3 year warranty which gives me the reassurance that this is built to last. The mouse also carries the bold claim that the batteries will last up to three years, something I find hard to believe but I am willing to give it a go.
The mouse is ergonomically designed to fit into the palm of your hand and is very comfortable to hold and control. The design is quite stylish with its sweeping lines and the jet black colour finishes it off well. The Logitech logo is present on the top of the mouse and to the base of the mouse is the laser sensor. This sensor tracks the movement of the mouse and controls your cursor on-screen. To the base is also the On/Off power button, along with a 'reset' button. The mouse has a scroll wheel on the top which is controlled by my index finger. There are also the left and right click buttons. These are all fairly standard features, though the two additional buttons for scrolling the internet positioned on the side of the mouse are a bonus.
The CD-ROM is included to allow you to install the mouse correctly to your specific model of computer. The installation was easy to follow and left me with just one more task. This was inserting the USB connector whcih is what reads the movements of the mouse. The batteries must also be inserted into the mouse, then you are ready to click away!
The three year warranty is something i found impressive, as a lot of companies offer shorter warranties, suggesting Logitech really do care about quality of their products. The mouse has proved to be very easy to control and it glides effortlessly across my mousemat. I think I got a bit of a bargain by paying just £28 for it and even at £35 it isn't expensive. If you are looking for a basic and inexpensive mouse then this won't be for you, but if you are a heavy user then this may be the smart choice.
Summary: A Marathon of a mousing experience.
