Logitech Wireless Mouse M215
Advantages: Comfortable, responsive, some neat features
Disadvantages: Keep the instructions unless you are good at getting into battery cases!
Over the years we have had a few standard wired computer mice. Each in turn has died a death, despite all the usual 'take it to pieces, clean the ball inside, change the mousemat' remedies. With the last one, it was working but ohhhh soooo slowly - this unfortunately coincided with everyone in the family having some urgent report to write / homework to do / etc. etc. - so in exasperation my husband stomped off to get another one ....
"Get a wireless one" I said.
"Get a Logitech one" I said.
I work in IT and colleagues had recommended Logitech, so I was pretty adamant on that score.
Husband arrived home : "They'd sold out of the Logitech ones so I got this". Grrr. But to be honest anything was better than the almost-dead one, so decided to give it a go.
It was a Bush mouse (can't remember the model). Well, what can I say? It felt flimsy, it was big and clunky, it seemed to tip my wrist to a funny angle, and none of us liked it much at all. Fortunately, it soon developed a fault whereby it kept needing to be reset - I say fortunately because this meant we could take it back and replace it with the now-in-stock Logitech M215.
The information on the Bush mouse is really to show the comparison. I have to say the M215 was a dream from the start.
* It has a pleasing matt finish and is perfectly contoured so it fits my hand really comfortably
* Both buttons and the scroll wheel are easy and comfortable to use
* Uses single AA battery - the sort most folk usually have in
* Set-up could not have been simpler - battery in, switch mouse on, plug in the tiny USB nano receiver
* On-off switch allows you to turn off when not in use, saving battery
* Control is nicely responsive
* Easy to move from one computer to another
* There's a storage space for the nano receiver inside the mouse, so you don't lose it in transit
* A button releases the battery door making access easy
The only warning I would mention is that if you forget how to open the battery door, it can fox you for a while - well, it had me stumped, until I found the instructions!
I mentioned I work in IT - so have used a lot of mice at work as well as at home, and this is my all-time favourite. If, like me, you spend a lot of hours on a computer, the comfort of a mouse is quite important really. This one does have a lot of little nice-to-have features too. I really, truly can't fault it in any way.
Price-wise - I think it's available around the £15 mark. Bargain!
Summary: A totally fab little mouse
