Comfort and Style on the Go
You'll appreciate how this wireless mobile mouse comfortably fits your hand and your mobile lifestyle. Use it just about anywhere, even on a rough park bench or your living room carpet, relying on Microsoft BlueTrack Technology*. Keep using your mouse for up to eight months with a single battery, and rely on the power indicator to tell you when it’s time to replace it.
Snap-in Nano Transceiver
When it’s time to pack up and go, you’ll hardly notice the tiny transceiver. Keep it plugged into your computer’s USB port, or tuck it into the underside of the mouse for travel. When stowed, the transceiver turns off the mouse to conserve battery life. The Nano Transceiver is so small that it sticks out less than a centimeter from the USB port and can easily remain plugged into the computer when traveling.
Comfortable in either hand
Ambidextrous design means you can use your mouse with your left or right hand, it’s comfortable either way.
Take advantage of BlueTrack Technology, which combines the power of optical with the precision of laser for remarkable tracking on virtually any surface.

Look and Feel
- The 3500 has a sleek design with a glossy finish, and a nice feeling grippy rubber area around where the thumbs and and fingers grip the mouse. The M325 has a similar grippy rubber area, but I personally like the feel of the 3500 slightly better.
- The 3500 has a smoother slide on over a mouse pad vs the M325 which has slightly grainy slide
- The 3500 is harder to keep clean, its glossy exterior attracts finger prints and gap around the top of the mouse where the buttons meets the mouse is larger then on the M325 which also attracts grime over time. The M325 has a brushed/textured exterior
+Both mouses are equally sensitive.
+The scroll wheel on the 3500 is a slower feeling scroll that has a distinct "click" with each movement, great if you are scrolling down slow or one page at time, but annoying if you need to get to the bottom of something fast. The opposite is true for the M325 which as a very smooth scrolling wheel with almost no click. This is great for games or instances where you may need to scroll fast, but its almost too sensitive if you're not careful
+The M325 scroll wheel has two additional functions over the 3500, you can click the actual scroll wheel left and right, acting by default as a page back and page forward in a browser.
+The 3500 battery life was disappointing for me, it died after 6 weeks with daily heavy use. The M325 may last longer but I haven't use it as much. I do notice the blue track light on the bottom of the 3500 mouse seems to stay bright all the time, whereas on the M325, I can't even notice its on at all by looking at the track light.
If you're planning on getting a wireless keyboard also, the M325 has another big plus with its unifying usb receiver allowing you to use the same USB receiver for both the keyboard and mouse instead of taking up two separate usb ports. This is true as long as you get a Logitech wireless keyboard that supports the unifying function.
- 8+ Months in, both mouses are still working fine but I would recommend the Logitech M325 over the Microsoft 3500 mouse for one simple reason: Battery Life! I've had 3 battery changes on 3500, the M325 has had one battery change, and it wasn't for the lack of use either.
1. It's slightly smaller than my 3-year-old Microsoft 4000, which isn't a large mouse to start with. (see picture)
2. The scroll wheel has the notched action to it, but it feels...loose. My 4000 has smooth action and has never failed me.
3. The scroll wheel will act up if not perfectly situated according to rules only it knows. I'll have a window suddenly scroll one notch up or down without my hand even being on the mouse. Or it will sometimes stutter between two scroll positions until I move it clear from its current position.
I like that it's RF so it doesn't interfere with my bluetooth speaker, but I can't give the credit for that to Microsoft. It doesn't happen constantly and it will get me through until I feel the need to replace it, so that's why I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 2.
I don't have any use for the extra side paddles that some larger mice have, so the tendency of 'mobile' mice to not have these paddles does not bother me.
I have two computers that use an older version of this Microsoft 3500, and they are my favorite mice now. With a new computer added to my stable of actively used machines, I needed another mouse but the older model I likes was discontinued and replaced by this 3500 model. Those who still had the older ones wanted lots of money for them, so I went with the 3500.
This mouse does indeed seems to be a bit lighter than the older version, but I am not sure if this is a technical improvement to reduce weight of a portable product, or just a cost-saving move to cheapen the product. Maybe both! Certainly this mouse as a plainer appearance, having one fewer colors in the plastic finish, and I suppose this makes it less expensive to manufacture.
But in operation, the feel of the 3500 closely matches the older version, so I am please by that. The older one has a roller with a smooth, yet grippy surface. This 3500, on the other hand, has a roller with a knurled surface. My preference is for the way it was done on the older mouse, simply because the knurls will tend to collect finger oils and dirt over time.
Still, a good looking, ergonomic, and well functioning wireless optical mouse.
Note that this mouse does NOT use Bluetooth to directly communicate with the portable computer's built-in Bluetooth receiver. It comes with, and requires the use of, a tiny USB 'dongle' which will fit into, and permanently occupy, one of your computer's USB ports. The dongle is small enough to leave attached to a notebook computer, even while it is in your bag or backpack for transit. However, I find that this dongle sticks out just a bit more on my new computer than I would like, so to prevent damage I always place the computer in my backpack with 'dongle side up'.
