Logitech Wireless Mouse M305
Advantages: Easy to use
When I had first gotten a laptop I wasn't completely used to the mouse pad and back in the day I did a lot of graphic design work so wanted my old mouse back so that I could work photoshop the way that I was used to on a normal PC.
I had a look at a variety of sites such as Currys, PC World, Argos and eventually found this mouse. I parted with £29.95 of my hard earned money and three years later haven't been let down.
The mouse comes in a small box and the standard protective packaging so that the mouse isn't damaged. In the box you receive the mouse itself, a small USB stick and I got a cloth bag with mine as a way of storing it for when it's not in use. There's also an instruction manual but as women don't tend to need these I decided to forgo reading this and turns out I didn't need it anyway. I connected the USB stick to my laptop and turned the switch on the bottom of the mouse to the 'on' position. You are told it's working correctly when you see a red light on the bottom. When it's turned off this light goes off.
As it's been three years since I first used this mouse I believe that when I plugged it in I got an automated start up programme come up on my screen, I had to run through a few basic set up configurations but it didn't take too long and after that I've not had to use any software since.
When using the mouse it reacts as quick as you would expect it to. I've not had it freeze on screen and it follows my command as instantly as I make it. It's also not as sensitive as some mousepads can be. It only follows what you wish to do rather than what the mousepad thinks you want to do. This is the problem I've had with a lot of laptops where the mouse seems to like moving of it's own accord.
I've found this mouse can work on pretty much any machine, including PC's. I haven't tried it on a Mac but as they have their own mice I doubt this will be up to much on a Apple operating system, however it does work with any Microsoft OS (tried and tested so far on ME, XP, Vista and Windows 7).
You do need to change the battery every so often depending on how much you use it. It only requires one AA battery however, and mine seems to have lasted a few months at a time considering how much I use it.
The design itself is also very sleek. There's the standard right and left mouse button which are positioned comfortably for your fingers. There's also a rollerball in the middle that allows you to scroll webpages and documents with ease.
Overall I've had very few problems with this mouse. Yes it's stuck on a couple of occasions but that's because of wear and tear. So if you're looking for something simple and straightforward then I'd definitely give this a try!
Summary: Great little USB mouse
