Logitech M325C Wireless Mouse Review
Design and Features
Measuring 3.73 x 2.24 x 1.54 inches (HWD) and weighing 3.28 ounces. The M325c is very small and lightweight, about the same size, but lighter than the Rapoo 3100P Wireless Optical Mouse that’s ready to travel, and a little more compact than Editor’s Choice for the primary wireless mouse, Logitech’s M320 Wireless Mouse. I have a reasonably small hand, and it still fits in my hand. It made of glossy plastic around it, so it’s a bit slippery to the touch. Right, & Left Click buttons are slightly concave so that they are contoured to the shape of your fingertips. That is a standard right and left mouse click with the scroll wheel in the middle. This mouse is ambidextrous, so right-handed and right-handed people can use it. M325c can be used with Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, and Linux.
M325c is a simple mouse with several features, but you can tilt the scroll wheel left (Back) or right (Forward) to mimic the navigation arrows of a page in your Web browser. I found this to be an optional feature and one that requires time for testing. Under the scroll wheel, there is a small light that turns green to let you know that the mouse is on.
Turn the mouse over, and you will find the On / Off button. Inside is a slot for a nano USB receiver and a single AA battery (the last one you need). According to Logitech, you will be able to use the mouse for about 18 months before needing to replace the battery.
The most striking feature of the M325c is its colorful design choices. My review unit has a rainbow owl design in red, yellow, blue, and green. Also, there are eight additional designs to choose from, including a cool blue chevron, bright sunburst pattern, and more. They are all very colorful and give a welcome from the annoying mono rats that you see in most work stations.
To pair Logitech M325c Wireless Optical Mouse with your computer, insert the nano-receiver into the USB port and turn on the mouse. This mouse uses a 2.4GHz wireless connection, and in testing, the lag is almost non-existent. With a resolution of 1,000 dots per inch (dpi), the sensitivity of this mouse is the same as other budget wireless mice and works on most surfaces without obstacles in my tests. The scroll wheel is a little bit too sensitive for my liking, making it easy to scroll up or down accidentally. Otherwise, the mouse will function properly.
The Logitech M320 Wireless Mouse itself is an easier-to-hold option, with a rubber grip, which is likely to fit more hands than the M325c. If you are looking for more programmable options, the Logitech Wireless Mouse M560 is worth seeing. Even so, the M325c is a colorful mouse. That is fun to use once in a while, travel, or as a children’s first mouse.
- Scroll wheel is a bit too sensitive.
- Might be too small for many hands.
- Ambidextrous design.
- Vibrant color options.
- Unique back-and-forward clicking feature on the scroll wheel.
The $30 Logitech M325c Wireless Mouse is fun & interesting looking, but the scroll wheel & sensor are a bit too touchy.
