Nice, but not the best for gaming,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Logitech 910-002974 M325 Wireless Mouse for Web Scrolling - Black (Personal Computers)
This is the first wireless mouse I have ever owned, and I am mostly satisfied with it. For web browsing and general computing, this is fully satisfactory. The mouse itself is comfortable to hold, and everything responds just as it should. The fact that the unifying receiver is so small is super convenient, as I can pack away my laptop without having to disconnect it.
My only complaint is that the scroll wheel, which is very nice for web browsing, is by default WAY too sensitive for gaming. I soon discovered while playing games like HL2 where the scroll wheel is used to switch weapons, I would often times switch weapons without even touching the wheel. Simply jarring the mouse quickly was often enough to trigger the scroll wheel. This essentially ruined my gaming experience, because this completely threw me off during the most intense moments of a game. After toying with some settings, I found out that by turning the scroll wheel sensitivity down all the way, I was able to solve this problem. While it does occasionally happen still, these instances are few and far between. Unfortunately, with the sensitivity turned all the way down, it's not quite as sensitive as I would like it to be while doing other things. I can cope with this limitation, however, to preserve my gaming experience.
Another issue I experienced, which is not the fault of Logitech, as far as I can tell, is a driver conflict that occurred when I first attached the receiver to my computer. I had MotionJoy drivers already on my computer, which is used for the PS3 sixaxis controller. For whatever reason, my computer was attempting to use these drivers instead of the Logitech drivers. I had to totally remove the MotionJoy drivers from my computer before the mouse would work. Thank goodness I found a message board online where someone else had had this same obscure problem.
Overall, I recommend this mouse for everyday computing, but would suggest something else for those who are more gaming-focused. Overall good product.
