sleeps

Jim V., Newegg
26 September 2015
  • Summary: My mouse was shipped directly from China, which took about two weeks. I guess I got the last of the production run.
  • Pros: Sharp looking. Nice, precise tracking while it's working.
  • Cons: The buttons require a firmer push than I'm used to - about 7 oz according to my scales. However, the main problem is that the mouse falls asleep. I can wake it up by bringing it down rather sharply on the mouse pad. Not really hard. But I was having to do this several times a minute. I don't thin...

2nd buy 5+ years and going

Christine P., Newegg
1 September 2015
  • Summary: It's a very small mouse, definitely a claw grip. If you want something on the bigger end for a more comfortable grip for bigger hands, you may want to consider something bigger..
  • Pros: -great small comfortable compact mouse -sturdy and durable, use on multiple surfaces and sturdy feet -two- batteries increase use by a lot, it is very efficient in it's battery use. I only change the batteries once every 6 months and I use it almost every day. -great small compartment to store th...

Good, but doesn't outlast the warranty

Brandon K., Newegg
31 January 2013
  • Summary: Lasted almost 3 years, and has been good so far. Tested all USB ports on both my computer and my wife's computer with the receiver, and got the same result, so I know it is not an issue with the computers.
  • Pros: I love the size, and the mouse functions well on all surfaces except my glass desktop. I knew that from the start, so that was not a big deal. This mouse was bought to accompany my netbook that I use for international travel, and has been to three continents. Pros: Size Functionality Durability L...
  • Cons: Cons: Receiver started shorting out middle of Fall 2012. Had to wiggle it to get it to be recognized by the computer. No big deal at first. I just had to find the angle that it wanted to be recognized at. Now, after a few months of putting up with this, I have to wedge a paper clip in next to it ...

Not a bad mouse

Matthew K., Newegg
19 December 2012
  • Summary: I like the mouse, but seeing other people having the same problem with multiple clicks being registered is going to put me buying a different replacement. This is the first mouse I've owned that went defective after just one year.
  • Pros: The small form factor makes it easy to pack up and travel with. I've been using this mouse for just over a year and have yet to replace the batteries, as well. I spend an average of 30 hours a week using the mouse.
  • Cons: As some others have reported, the mouse has started registering all left clicks as double (or more) clicks. This means that you can't click and drag anything, and often applications are opened by single clicking. The multiple registering of one click to many effectively makes the mouse useless.

Trust Logitech products

Victor S., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Pros: Replaced after 1.5 years from Logitech, was using the mouse and the optical laser died, so since there was a 3 year Warranty I talked to Logitech and got a replacement sent
  • Cons: Requires 2 batteries, but have never needed to change them while using them for 1.5 years until they broke

Buttons deter after about 1 year

Manuel W., Newegg
18 October 2012
  • Summary: This clearly is a flaw that originates in selecting cheap material and parts. Logitech is a brand that got renown for their quality, looks like the current managers choose short term profits over long term customer satisfaction. I am definitely one customer lost and not recommending them anymore.
  • Pros: Form factor - not as small as classical laptop mice, not as big as classical desktop mice. Just right. Weight - relatively lightweigt. It does not stick, and so even very tiny, precise movements are easy. Battery capacity - don't even remember when I last changed the battery. Would estimate is ea...
  • Cons: I would have been happy ever after, but then.... After about a year, the buttons deter. You click them once, and the button registers a double click. You cannot imagine how annoying it is if you - click on a window title once to bring it into the foreground and it maximizes - drag a window on the...

Worked good overall

Gregory K., Newegg
17 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm in a remote location overseas and could only buy a M305. This does not have Unifying software. Honestly, I'm not sure why ALL of their pieces don't have this. You could really dominate a market share with this feature. I will be mail ordering another Unifying device.
  • Pros: I used this with a laptop and worked flawlessly until a couple weeks ago. Like many others the left click started double clicking. I play Age of Empires III a lot (yes..I know...just stuck on it for some reason) and so I'm not really suprised I used up the life cycle of the left clicker. No issue...
  • Cons: I'm still a little surprised the left click started crapping out. You would think in this day and age, mice could near last forever.

Great

Milan G., Newegg
5 September 2012
  • Summary: Other than negligible Cons I would definitely recommended to friends
  • Pros: -small sized if u have smaller/average hands -tiny receiver that always works without any problems -comfortable with material made of good grip -no annoying red light from the bottom -very long battery life,i never turned mouse off -batteries make mouse little heavier which gives you more control...
  • Cons: -lining on the sides gets dirty after some time,but easy to clean -after few years of using the sides start slowly peeling off -battery cover gets little loose but doesn't bother at all -sometimes mouse turns off by itself, so reset if happens

middle click broken 34 days in

Robert M., Newegg
24 August 2012
  • Summary: I gave them a 5 egg review on my 2nd day of having it for the ergonomic feature and the tilt wheel... I'm so mad at this company right now...
  • Pros: I'm so mad at this company right now...
  • Cons: The middle click is broken on the cheap-sauce mouse. I'm not even using it for gaming, I'm just doing web research! Even when this mouse was working, it has a feature where it goes to sleep if you haven't moved it within 10seconds. It's extremely annoying. You can't disable this feature.
