Sizing up the Logitech M320 Wireless Mouse

Subject: General Tech
Manufacturer: Logitech

Meet the M320

Logitech is brand synonymous with mice, joysticks and other peripherals, providing a handy way to interact with your computer for over 20 years.  Anyone who has used a computer for any amount of time knows Logitech and have used a variety of their products.  Their peripheral lineup has come a long way from the beginnings, with washable keyboards, webcams and mice with over two dozen programmable buttons.

In this case we are looking at the M320 Wireless Mouse with three buttons and scroll wheel, a rubberized grip shaped for the right hand and an offset optical sensor with 1000 dpi resolution.

The Logitech M320 comes in a user friendly clamshell package with cut out flap on the back which is actually effective in opening the packaging without the need of a utility knife or a couple of stitches on your hand.  Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that it ships with a battery included; not the rechargeable kind but certainly a nice touch for those of us who remember receiving toys that were unusable until someone made a trip to the store to pick up the required mix of AAA's, D's or 9V's.  The documentation claims the battery will last for two years and while there was obviously no way to put that to the test the automatic sleep mode and physical power switch will ensure that your battery life will not be inconveniently short.

As you should expect in a wireless mouse designed for portability it is small, indeed for those of us with larger palms it feels almost too small for extended usage and lefties will find it more so as it is definitely nothing sinister about the M320.  When compared to my venerable MX518 you can see the significant overall size difference, although the total height difference is minimal the MX518 has a more gentle gradient and thus feels superiour during extended gaming sessions.  On the other hand this also ensures that the M320 offers an insignificant amount of encumbrance in your bag while you are on the move.

The USB nano receiver fits beside the battery underneath the sliding cover when not in use which is a much more secure if slightly less accessible alternative to models which slide into an external slot in the body of the mouse.  You can keep the USB receiver plugged in when you store your laptop as it does only stick out 6mm but really, you are asking for a dead USB plug sooner or later.

It seems all the recent logitech products also their after sales service is similar to the M320. Too crappy at even half the advertised price.

I hate how logitech has sliped in quality. My favorite game pad is the f310, however in 2013 I wore out 3. I was used to killing one pad a year but 3 was insane. Switched to a 360 pad, it's starting to feel worn in the recoil but it's still fully functional over a year later.

I have a M325 and it is much better than the Microsoft mouse. I had a M$ mouse that I kept bringing back every 5-6 months for 2 years, the rubber kept rotting off of the scroll wheel, or the rubber grips would become unglued from the mouse. The Logitech is now more than 6mo old and still going strong, after being use at least 10+ hours a day. The last Logitech(305) I owned lasted 2 years, which is good for an inexpensive $15 dollar mouse. I like the classic shape of the 305, and the M325 has the same shape/style, but if I get a year, I'll be happy.

My general rule with logitech, don't spend less than 40 dollars on whatever it is you want from them or quality quickly diminishes for one reason or another. There has been an exception or two over the years but very rarely so. With that being said, I use Logitech exclusively for years and have always followed that logic. The M560 mouse is the only +40 dollar mouse of theres I've really been shocked with the poor quality, however cheap it feels it works better with the buttons reconfigured and a bit of set up. Though as my go to mouse I'm using a G400s, which finally took spot of the Logitech g9x I used for over six years easily. Loving the larger grip on it for my worn old man hands, feels nicer than the claw I was so used to fraggin for so many years.

Their new unifying devices are great for people who often switch from their pc to tablet n' such. Generally think that's a great standard they are forming with those products.

As the above poster said, few exceptions with their cheaper mice.
Never bad to have around as an extra. Even the cheap 20/30 dollar mouse/keyboard combo has served me well for use with building other systems downstairs, use in the living when needed or whatever.

Though I didn't think the mouse in the article was anything to write about, would of been more interesting to write about Unifying software and other newer products of theirs. : P

Why is this Logitech M320 is able to work with their USB Unifying Receiver but the included Logitech USB Receiver is NOT the Unifying type in the package?? This is stupid Logitech! No deal, Logitech.

For $13 at Best Buy or Office Depot this works great as a cheap mouse that is comfortable... and I have a Logitech KB that came with Unifying a receiver so I'm set... Yes definitely not for those with large hands but to me a nice balance between being portable and comfortable.

Gotta say that I love Logitech and have had great experiences with them. I have a wireless keyboard/mouse combo for four years and it went south and I contacted them thinking that I could find out what caused it to stop working, they just replaced it with a newer model with no questions asked and was able to keep the mouse which still worked for use if the new one encounters a problem. I have been looking for a cheap decent mouse for my laptop and this will be perfect.

My only concern is that it is so small for my huge hands! lol I am a big dude 6'6" tall and my hands reflect that size. I may have to learn to deal with a small mouse and since I do not need to use the laptop too much, that should be okay!
