Logitech M505 Wireless RF Laser Mouse
  • High quality light sensor technology.
  • The laser sensor tracks on ANYTHING.
  • DPI is great and with Logitech's Setpoint software I can configure my mouse the way I want to!
  • Notice that this description doesn't include any DPI measures, because this mouse lags like crazy.
  • Super amazing mouse, and that have a good sensor.
Logitech M525 Wireless Mouse
  • It is very responsive, though, and just like the M510 it can be used for gaming with very little delay and no tracking issues in a home environment.
  • Scroll wheel is very smooth and "light" touch, just as all other buttons.
  • There are no "forward/back" buttons on the left side of the mouse which make mouse more convenient for web use.
  • Wheel has no real feel to it. that is, the wheel just spins and appears a bit loose.
  • This mouse is very not ok. It's not very smooth sensor and overall feels very cheap.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Logitech M505 Wireless RF Laser Mouse
  • The device itself is very comfortable to use and the small size has not bothered me in the very least.
  • In fact, that small size is very convenient.
  • Mouse is the right size, responsive, accurate, simply the best of the best.
  • The design is good and comforting, at least to my medium sized palm.
  • One thing to note is that I have average sized hands and I find it a little on the small side.
Logitech M525 Wireless Mouse
  • Works well, not too big, but not small and fiddly.
  • Combination of weight and compact size is just right for office and travel.
  • I love the size, because I use my fingers to move the mouse instead of my wrist.
  • I like the size since I use a mouse 8 hours a day and I don't get tired using this mouse.
  • The device itself is much smaller than the website states.

What customers say about "Connection"
Logitech M505 Wireless RF Laser Mouse
  • Connectivity has NEVER been an issue with the nano receiver.
  • Connecting my keyboard and mouse to my computer using the unifying receiver has never been easier!
  • I have not had any issues with wireless connectivity.
  • A solid RF connection every time I start up my computer.
  • I was constantly have connectivity issues with the Bluetooth device.
Logitech M525 Wireless Mouse
  • An excellent wireless range with good battery life, but that is because it uses two of them.
  • The range is good. Not that I need to, but I can use it as far as I can see the screen.
  • Very nice wireless design, works as it should, wireless range is awesome!
  • Effective range is like 3 feet. Any further than that, the mouse pointer starts skipping.
  • Mouse is currently 18 inches from the receiver, on an office desk tray, and it is very jittery and hard to use.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech M505 Wireless RF Laser Mouse
  • The tiny USB adapter stores securely inside the mouse. This is an important feature for a travel mouse.
  • Truly plug-and-play and PC/MAC compatible.
  • I've tested this mouse with a Windows 7 laptop and Lion/Mountain Lion MacBook Air.
  • The smart sleep mode, which allows the mouse to go into a power saving mode when it hasn't been used for some time.
  • The on/off switch, which not all mice come with (gasp!).
Logitech M525 Wireless Mouse
  • On the good sides of mouse, it activates fast. Just plug in the little USB and voila.
  • The battery and blue tooth dongle are easy to get to and over all the product feel sturdy.
  • I have a super-lightweight business laptop with very few USB ports, do I love the unify and micro-receiver feature.
  • The battery life is excellent due to the mouse going into what seems to be a sleep-mode while no motion is detected.
  • The stripes on the side add a touch of style, but they are "slick". I would rather have the rubberized grip full-length of the sides.
