If you are sick of using your laptop’s touchpad, the cheap mouse that comes with it or you are just looking for a mouse, then you should consider the Logitech Wireless Mouse M510 in your list.

When you first look at the mouse, it may seem like any other ordinary office mouse. But when you start to use it, you will realize why this is a highly rated product.

The Logitech M510 comes in 3 different colours; black, red and blue. The mouse feels very natural on your palm when you grip it and your thumb and pinky fingers are able to rest on the rubber grip very comfortably.

Aside from having two side buttons on the left for going back and forward in the browser or to switch between songs, it also has horizontal left and right scrolling, which is very useful for people who may use applications such as Microsoft’s Excel for example.

One very useful thing that this mouse has is Logitech’s “Darkfield” laser sensor, which essentially lets you use it on almost any surface. This would mean that there would not be a need to pack a mouse pad into your bag if you are going to travel with your laptop.

Logitech has said that the M510 is able to run on just 2 AA batteries that provide power for a duration of 2 years. Even better, this mouse is able to run perfectly well with only 1 battery.

Overall, at a price of around 60SGD, this is an relatively affordable mouse  that you might want to consider purchasing. It is comfortable to use, highly portable due to its size and does not require a mouse pad to use and has a very long battery life.

Finalmouse ScreaM One

The Finalmouse ScreaM One is a gaming mice that was surrounded by hype after the famous “They talk about my one taps” commercial played during the MLG Columbus CSGO major.

The ScreaM One has a ambidextrous shape therefore it is able to be used by the right and left equally well.  It is slightly larger compared to other gaming mice on the market right now. Which is why I would suggest players with medium/large hands to give the ScreaM One a go. Despite it’s size, the Finalmouse ScreaM One is pretty light compared to other gaming mice. Razer Deathadder Chroma, Steelseries Rival 100/300, Razer Mamba, Logitech G502 are just a few examples that the Finalmouse ScreaM One was being compared to.

The ScreaM One uses a PMW3360 eSports sensor which offers higher framerate, integrated illumination and enhanced tracking technology. Which is why the 3360 is considered the summit of sensor technology. It is said that the Scream One offers a click response time of 1 ms. Which makes it the fastest in the gaming mouse industry right now.

The wiring of the ScreaM One is high in quality, being able to be kept in good condition for a long time. The wiring of the ScreaM One is braided and when compared to other mice it is a better alternative.

Overall, the Finalmouse ScreaM One is a mouse that was made to make it feel like it is part of your hand. I would recommend it to players with medium/large hands looking for a comfortable gaming mouse that offers a good sensor with a quick click response time.

Logitech HD PRO WEBCAM C920

The HD Pro Webcam C920 is made by logitech and is said to produce 1080p HD video recordings on skype or Facetime if you’re a Mac user. The webcam is made out of glossy and matte black plastics and a clear plastic cover over the optics. Although it has a permanent USB cable attached to it, the cable is typically long enough.

The mount of the webcam is also special as it pivots that allow it to not only brace the webcam tightly so that it won’t fall out easily, but it also has a pivot to change the vertical angle of the webcam. If you don’t feel like attaching the webcam on your laptop lid or computer monitor, there’s a tripod attachment you can place it on your desk instead.

It also has two microphones attached at both sides of the webcam for stereo audio. The C920 also doesn’t require any special software that you are required to install to work properly. All you have to do is plug it in any open USB ports and let it install and if you’re on Windows it would automatically detect Skype.

Though if you’re interested in installing the software that works with it, Logitech’s Webcam Controller software, comes a Control Tab and Effects Tab, the Control Tab has features like auto-tracking, zoom adjustments, tilt, and more.  The Effects Tab allow you to add filters, accessories to your face, and more which is typically used if you’re not being serious.

As for performance, comments have pointed out that the video quality was perfect and it was certainly good. The focus, light balance and frame rates were said to be excellent. However, a bluish cast can be seen in drastic lighting conditions but can be easily fixed by turning off red light. For the audio quality, it is really clear and cancels out most background noise. This is really good if you’re in a professional stand point and require clear and a non-noisy background.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for quality video when using Skype or want to use it professionally or casually on streaming services like Twitch, then this would be a perfect webcam for you. The webcam is also isn’t that expensive at the price of S$189.00 retail price. I would recommend this greatly, if you’re planning on starting out streaming or casting.

The Logitech M105 is a corded mouse for people who looking for a decent cheap mouse. The mouse is designed so that both hands feel comfortable while using. It is very easy to set up and has high-definition tracking up to 1000 dpi.

The mouse is also really easy to set up as it just requires you to plug it in one of your USB ports and you will be able to use it almost immediately. It is also suitable for both gaming and office work. Although it lacks certain features like side thumb buttons so that it is easier to surf the internet, it’s from mice like this.

It is also very durable and reliable as you would never face any problems like delays in clicking or it clicking twice. It also comes with a three-year limited hardware warranty.

The only complaint I have is that the mice is a little too small as at times my hands would have a hard time holding the mouse comfortably.

In conclusion, this mouse is really suitable for people who are on a budget and is looking for decent mice. This mouse is also really cheap the price of only S$17 at retail price. There is no down sides other than missing features of higher quality mice. I recommend this mice although it is not very advisable for people with large hands to use this.

Logitech Wireless Mouse M280


The Logitech Wireless Mouse M280 is a compact mouse with comfort in mind. Usually when companies try to make compact mice, they usually make it too small for people with larger hands which would be uncomfortable if used for long periods of time. However Logitech made this mouse just the right size for both travel purposes and comfortable usage.

Logitech said that the mouse has a battery life of 18 months depending on the user’s usage and would go to sleep when not in use to conserve battery life. It uses an AA battery so having one on standby would ensure that the mouse never runs out of battery. It comes with a nano receiver where all you have to do is plug it in one of your computer or laptop’s USB port and forget all about it afterwards. The mouse also comes with a small compartment to store the nano receiver if you want to store it after using. Of course, it is quite easy to lose the nano receiver due to its size and would cause inconvenience as the mouse would be practically useless without it.

This mouse is designed only for people who use their right hand and not left as the left side of the device comes with a natural curve and soft rubber grips for the comfort of your hand. The mouse also works on almost every surface other than glass and works at long distances up to around 25 metres.  It comes in 3 different colours, black, red and blue so you get to choose which colour suits your taste best.

In conclusion, this mouse would be great for both office work and playing mostly casual games. It is not too expensive as it only cost around S$32.00 at retail price. With the battery and comfortable design, users would not have much to complain about. Although it lacks the thumb button at the side, it is expected from simplistic mice like this. Thus, I would really recommend this mouse to people who are on a budget but still want a decent mouse for use.

G402 HYPERION FURY

 

G402 Hyperion Fury is a gaming mouse made by Logitech. The mouse is said to enhance gaming performance and does not take a huge chunk of money out of your wallet. It comes with high speed tracking and 8 programmable buttons.

With the buttons, you could do a lot of actions with just one simple click, like quick accessing your inventory when you’re playing a game. You could even switch your DPI (dots per inch) settings almost instantly, like sniping in-game with 250 DPI and run away from your foes with 4000 DPI. This allows flexibility when in the midst of battle in a game.

The mouse design is for right-handed only and weighs 141g which is relatively light. It comes with a 32-bit ARM processor that promises high performance and using the Logitech Gaming Software you can craft and assign macro commands with ease.

It uses a USB 2.0 with a 3.14m long cable and 4 low friction plastic feet at the bottom to glide smoothly on your mouse pad or desktop. The mouse designed for maximum comfort for people with medium-sized hands; however the thumb rest might be a little too short for people with long fingers.

It is a really durable mouse with the ability of 20 million clicks on the left and right side while the 4 low friction plastic feet have a maximum of 250km. But do keep in mind that this might vary from different type of users.

In conclusion, this gaming mouse is quite worth to get. It is priced at S$65.00 which is relatively cheap for a gaming mouse with quite good performance as it has a 1 millisecond report rate. However the only thing that could be improved is the thumb rest as it could be game changing factors if you have a long thumb and the fact that to get the full feature set you need a Windows. I would really recommend this mouse for both casual and hardcore gamers.

Logitech Wireless Headset H600

The Logitech Wireless Headset H600 is like any wireless headsets, it comes with a USB Nano Receiver and a chargeable cable. It promises to works well with your normal social media like Skype, Windows Live Messenger and more.

The headset comes with a 2-year limited hardware warranty. It comes with a six-hour long battery life but varies on how much you use it.

If you need to be on the move often, it has a fold-and-go design to pack when space is limited. It has adjustable headbands to suit you best and has simplistic on-ear controls to adjust the volume if it is too loud or soft. It is very lightweight so it wouldn’t burden you much when using it.

It has good Noise Cancelling so there would not be much disturbance and would not have to compete with background noise. It has a using distance of up to 10m but might vary if there are obstructions.

The sound quality is clear and has a lot of bass although the headset doesn’t fully cover your ears. It also does not feel cheap as it is firm and solid.

In conclusion, it is a really good headset that is also not very expensive at a price of S$89.00 and has a battery life that is quite long and will suit most users. However after a few months of use, the sound quality might sound a little choppy and some even experienced one side of the headset not working anymore. The amount of bass and comparability makes up for it though. I wouldn’t recommend this headset as the durability is not great but if you are looking for a temporary headset or doesn’t mind the cons of the device, this might suit you.

Logitech MX Anywhere 2

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is a high end wireless mouse that is similar to the Logitech MX Master but more mobile. It is small and weighs at 106 grams making it a very portable mouse and great for people who travel a lot. The Logitech Darkfield Laser Technology allows it to work on almost any surface, even glass.

It has a very long battery life and depending on how you use it, it could last for 60 days in one charge. You can charge the mouse with Micro-USB cable and in just one minute of charging, it can last for 2 hours. The speed adaptive scroll wheel can be switched to hyper-fast scrolling and is very precise. However, there is no page switching and side scrolling.

You can connect the mouse with Bluetooth or the Pico Unifying Receiver that is included which can connect to Logitech keyboards. If you connect with Bluetooth, you can switch between 3 different devices using the easy switch button. With the Logitech Options software, you can customize and change the function of the buttons on the mouse to suit your liking. If you are a Mac user, you can control most of the multi-finger trackpad gestures by just holding down a key

Sadly, the MX Anywhere 2 does not come with a carrying pouch like the MX Anywhere.

The MX Anywhere 2 is priced at S$107 and is definitely worth it. Being small, light and can be used at almost anywhere, I would recommend this mouse to anyone who travels frequently.

Logitech MX Master

The Logitech MX Master is a high-end mouse which works on most surfaces, due to the Logitech Darkfield Laser technology. It has a rechargeable battery with a long battery life which lasts up to 40 days with just one charge, depending on how you use it. Charging it for just a very short period of 1 minute will make the mouse last for 2 hours. If you connect it with a micro-USB cable, it will continue charging while using it. Basically, you will almost never run out of battery. This mouse is comfortable, smooth and precise and costs US$100

 

Like some high end mouse, the Logitech MX Master has a speed adaptive scroll wheel which changes the speed of the of scrolling automatically, on whether you scroll quickly or slowly and also takes into consideration on the length of the page. You can connect the mouse wirelessly by Bluetooth or by using the tiny USB dongle which is provided. You can also switch between three different computers by using the Easy-Switch button (which you can change the controls) , which is very convenient. There is also a second scrolling wheel which enables side scrolling

If you are a Mac user, there is a gesture support for the multi-finger trackpad gesture which can be controlled using the mouse when holding down an extra key.

However, like all mice, it also has its some minor downsides. This mouse is only made for right handers and there is no left-hander option for the mouse. The battery is also non-removable.
