Pros:Inexpensive and does an excellent job.
The Bottom Line: Logitech has a nice inovative track on this device.
If you own a laptop or a mini note book then you may want to invest in one of these wireless mouse from Logitech M505. It will only set you back about $25.00, and you can find these at Best Buy. They do have cheaper models but the battery will not last as long in those models. Of all of the models that the salesman and I looked at, the one seemed to be the most reliable and inexpensive one that they had.

This mouse only weighs 4.1 ounces and is 2-¼" wide x 4" long x 1-1/2" high. This comes equipped with a USB plug-in that is only ½" x ¾" in size and it is only ¼" at the thickest point. Logitech has made it very simple to install the two AA batteries that is needed to operate this mouse. There is a sliding button that will lock the battery door compartment closed, this will prevent you from losing the battery door. Since this has an on/off switch for the laser part of this mouse, you will save on your batteries. There is not much to this and what you should receive in your package is 4 things and they are the mouse, USB unifying receiver plug-in, and two AA batteries.
The minimum system requirements that you will need is a windows based PC which has Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP, plus a USB port. If you have a MAC PC, you will need MAC OS x 10.4 or later and also a USB port.
We have only had this mouse for about 6 months and we have yet to have to replace the batteries. They say that the batteries should last at least 15 months. Because of the on off switch that this has you can turn this off when you leave it for a night or so. My desktop PC has to be left on all the time and we do go through the batteries on that one.
With this having a laser track system it is very sensitive to the touch and you can still use the touch pad and the mouse at the same time. There is no jumping around, the curser moves smoothly and is very accurate even if you do not have a mouse pad.
There is not much to getting started with this mouse, all you have to do is install the batteries and switch it on and plug the receiver into any USB port to start this working. You should never have to unplug the receiver unless you want to change from a laptop to a net book. With the receiver being compatible with mostly anything, you can operate up to 6 different devices on one receiver.
On the main part of the mouse, you will have the usual right and left hand buttons , plus a little wheel to allow you to scroll up and down on the page that you are on. It is ergonomically sleek to fit in your hand properly and the receiver has 2.4 GB of power. This will allow you to operate this even if there is obstacles in the way.
Other devices that work well with this Mouse:
Dell mini 10 Net book
Dell Inspiron 17" Laptop
I can highly recommend this mouse if you would like to be free of all of those wires that entangle you when you sit at your laptop or net book. This is probably the best twenty five dollars that I have invested in my computer devices.
Amount Paid (US$): 25.00
