I've been using nothing but a Logitech corded mouse for at least 15 years. The M-125 is the only model I don't like.
It's really fast, accurate, smooth and very controllable in pointer movement. Five star here.
Scroll wheel is nice, light touch easy to scroll but very positive, I like the clicks. Also 5 stars.
Feels sturdy and solid.
Size: Way too small for a man's hand, and my petite wife didn't like it any better. Its for fingers & thumb only.
Cord: Flat cord curls badly, gets in the way,even after I stretched most of the curl out of it.
Shape: I personally don't like the indentations in the top to accommodate my index finger and middle finger. I have never had any mouse make my hand and fingers feel "tired" but that's what this mouse makes them feel.
It is too narrow at the back end of the mouse, & nothing to support the palm of my hand. That forces me to squeeze the mouse between my thumb and ring finger and I think that's what causes my hand to fatigue.
Spring loaded reel winds up the cord inside the mouse which is very convenient, but I've never seen one of these kind of reels last very long. I hope when the reel fails that the cord will still "hang out" so the mouse will continue to be usable.
Comparison: I have been using the Logitech M-UV94 Corded Laptop mouse for many years and loved it, but it's longevity was weak and it has apparently been discontinued. I went through 4 of that model mouse which was just enough larger than the M-125 to make it feel just right for my hand and my wife's also. I was hoping the M-125 would be a good replacement, but I'll not be buying a second one. I much prefer the round cord and the fool-proof manual winding of the cord around the slot in the base of the M-UV94.
