10 Best Wireless mouse 2018 – Buyer’s Guide

Best Wireless Mouse 2018

List of Best Wireless Mouse 2018

Wireless peripherals have been around for quite some time, and while their initial launch into the market was marred by several issues, they are starting to get better and better. In case you are wondering, the wireless peripherals of the early day and age suffered from latency issues, as well as mediocre battery life, and range issues.

However, things have changed; thanks to the ever evolving technology, we can safely say that the modern day wireless peripherals are almost as good as their wired counterparts. Keeping that in mind, the wireless peripheral that we will be talking about today is a wireless mouse.

Considering how popular they have become over the past couple of years, it’s only fair that we shed some light. Wireless mice are actually really good when it comes to productivity, since some of the are actually small enough to be easily carried in your backpack, and they boast battery life that can power the mouse for months without needing a charge.

Not a lot of people know this but some of the wireless mice are also really good for the purpose of gaming, something that wasn’t possible at all in the past. Mice like Logitech’s G900 Chaos Spectrum, and Razer’s Mamba are some of the best wireless mice when it comes to gaming.

With that said, for an average consumer, buying a wireless mouse, or even a wired mouse can be a confusing thing to do. Mainly because the market happens to be very, very saturated. This is because there are so many mice available in the market, it can lead to confusion.

Keeping that in mind, we have decided to make things easier for everyone, and narrowed down the 10 best wireless mice that are available in the market. Some of them are high end, while others are built to get the job done on a daily basis.

Another important thing that you should know is that in order to make things easier for the readers, we have split the reviews in different sections, so they have an easy time navigating, and understanding the reviews.

So, without further ado, let’s go ahead and start looking at all the options that are available to the average consumer.

Best Wireless Mouse 2018

1. Logitech MX Master 2s – Rating 4/5

Logitech MX Master 2s - Best Wireless mouse 2018

When it comes to wireless peripherals, Logitech has enjoyed quite a lot of success in this regard, the company has created some of the finest wireless mice in the market that were available as combos, and even standalone products. While a lot of these mice are high end, the company also kept some for people who don’t want to spend a lot of money on a peripheral.

Say hello to the Logitech MX Master 2s, built on the same foundation as the original MX Master, this is the king of wireless mice that is aiming to provide the most amount of features, and productivity to people who are willing to spend on it.

Design/Build Quality

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to many but when it comes to the design, the MX Master 2s largely resembles the original MX Master, and while it may put some people off, it’s by no means a bad decision as the original had a really great design that offered a lot of ergonomics as well.

The mouse is rather large, but average consumer shouldn’t face a lot of issues using it as it’s fairly simple to hold on to, and very, very comfortable should you want to use it for longer periods of time. The overall design language is pretty professional to say the least, so if you’re someone who’s wondering whether or not you can take this with you to your office, you shouldn’t have any issues.

As for the build quality, Logitech’s stuck with mostly premium materials, and given the price tag, we wouldn’t have settled with anything else to begin with. The top of the mouse is mostly matte finished, which is great because it allows for some amazing grip, and amazing comfort at the same time. Even though major portion of the construction is plastic, we can confirm that it’s good quality plastic, and your mouse won’t be wearing out anytime soon.

Usability

What good is a peripheral if it doesn’t provide ease of use to the consumers? This is something that we have always believed in, and in all honesty, the good thing about the MX Master 2s is that it happens to be extremely easy to use. Whether you’re surfing the web, or editing some files, we can assure you that you’re not going to run into any issues as far as usability is concerned.

There are ton of features that you can use, including an amazing feature called Flow, the feature lets you copy and paste documents, images, and text from one computer to another computer. While this feature may sound like a gimmick to a lot of people, it’s not because there are people who have 2 or more than 2 computers for working, making this feature a godsend.

The mouse comes with 7 buttons that you can program as you please including a gesture button that can be a bit difficult to grasp at first, but becomes relatively easy once you get a hold of it. The mouse can also be used as a wired mouse should you feel the need for it, or you can use the Unifying USB dongle that comes with it.

The mouse’s already paired with that dongle, and you can even add a compatible Logitech keyboard, completing the circle. The mouse also boasts a really amazing battery life, so if you’re constantly working without having much time for breaks, it’s a perfect choice.

All in all, the usability is pretty good, and there shouldn’t be any issues whatsoever.

Pros

  • Packed with features that you can actually use.
  • Extremely comfortable and easy to use.
  • Ton of customization options.
  • Great battery life.
  • Logitech Flow is a great, must have feature.
  • Works on pretty much any surface.

Cons

  • The gesture controls can be a bit confusing at first.

2. Logitech MX Anywhere 2 – Rating 3.5/5

Logitech MX Anywhere 2

In case you are not willing to spend the top dollar on Logitech’s MX Master 2s, the company has a more affordable approach as well. Like we’ve stated before, they have something for everyone, and keeping that in mind, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 seems like a perfect choice for budget oriented users who still want to have some amount of features.

Now this is definitely an odd name for a wireless mouse, but the name actually explains the entire nature of it. For starters, the mouse is actually made for people who want to carry it anywhere they want to, and thanks to the small footprint, it’s entirely possible. However, is it as good of a mouse as the company claims? Let’s find out.

Design/Build Quality

The design language is still a reminiscent of the MX series, however, due to its nature of being a mouse for travelers, and people who are always on the go, the MX Anywhere 2 is comparatively smaller, and in all honesty, it’s not really an issue. In simpler words, it’s actually made for a very specific audience, and we can’t really complain to begin with. Sure, the ergonomics aren’t as good due to the reduced foot print, but if you have small hands, then you’ll be really comfortable with the mouse.

As far as the build quality is concerned, despite the low price point, we’re glad to announce that the company didn’t compromise on the build quality. Means that the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 actually uses quality materials, and should last you enough even after the standard wear and tear that mice are actually subjected to.

However, we would advise you not to throw the mouse around, because these are not built for the purpose of hurling around. Needless to say, the only gripe we have here is the lack of grip, but considering the stature of the mouse, it’s very understandable.

Usability

Usability is often considered the most important aspect of any peripheral; whether you’re talking about a headset, a keyboard, or a mouse. After all, there’s no use to buy a peripheral if it’s not providing a good usability experience. Well, the good thing about the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is that there is plenty of usability in this small package.

Just like some of the other mice in the MX series, it’s packed with features, and the ability to customize the mouse as you see fit. Sure, not a lot of people may consider that because they just want a mouse that’s functional and easy to use.

However, should you feel adventurous, and want to see what this mouse can do, you should know the mouse can connect up to 3 different computers at the same time thanks to Logitech’s Unifying USB dongle, in addition to that, the dongle can actually connect a compatible Logitech keyboard with great ease.

The mouse also has the speed adaptive scroll wheel that we have grown accustomed to in the majority of Logitech mice, however, we still can’t come to terms with the fact that it actually helps the users. Still, this isn’t something we can decide since the usability of the adaptive scroll wheel is something that’s largely subjective.

Last but not the least, the mouse also has great battery life, and while the battery isn’t something that’s user replaceable, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it can last years before finally giving in.

Pros

  • Great battery life.
  • Comes with ton of customization options.
  • Lightweight, and extremely comfortable.
  • Can work on almost any surface.

Cons

  • Not ideal for people with large hands.
  • Doesn’t come with the famous Flow feature.

3. Apple Magic Mouse 2 – Rating 3/5

Apple Magic Mouse 2 - Best Wireless mouse 2018

Every now and then, Apple comes up with something that surprises people, and while it’s a pretty common fact that the company is known for releasing full-fledged computers, not a lot of people know that they actually release some amazing peripherals that accompany the computers.

Keeping that in mind, we’re looking at the Apple Magic Mouse 2; considering how the original was success, Apple decided to make it even better, and released a newer version that was supposedly better than the original, but is it actually better? Let’s find out.

Design/Build Quality

It’s pretty safe to say that we are very, very familiar with the design language Apple is known for going towards, and it’s not really a bad thing. The company believes in minimalism, and as someone who likes to have things as minimal as possible, it’s a very nice approach. It’s amazing to see how Apple’s love for minimalism reflects on this mouse.

The Magic Mouse 2 is perhaps the simplest, most minimal looking mouse we’ve tested, and we can’t really complain because it looks amazing. However, keep in mind that the mouse is actually quite small to begin with, meaning that people with large hands might have an issue using it. However, the good thing is that the mouse has an ambidextrous design, making it possible for both left and right handed use.

Keep in mind that we’re not saying that the design is perfect, it’s actually somewhat shallow, meaning that it won’t perfectly fit the curve of your hand, and that can be an issue for a lot of people. Build quality is actually good, you won’t be noticing any wear and tear soon enough, so that’s not a concern.

Usability

We’ve already talked about how the mouse comes with an ambidextrous design, so that’s a win-win situation for a lot of people. However, keep in mind that’s not all there is to the usability. There are actually some other factors that make the mouse good for using. For starters, the curve of the mouse feels very unnatural, and shallow.

While this may sound like a very technical thing, you need to know the mouse can be a bit uncomfortable to use due to how it’s shaped, something that is definitely a deal breaker for a lot of people.

One more thing that we didn’t like about this mouse is that it actually requires OS X El Capitan or later, and if that wasn’t alarming enough, you can’t use the mouse while it’s being charged, something that shouldn’t be a thing in the modern day and age.

All in all, it can’t be denied that the Apple Magic Mouse 2 isn’t perfect by all means, still, it does have some good points to it, and it can be good for people who don’t want a lot of productivity, and are just looking for a mouse to use with their Apple device.

Pros

  • Simple, minimalistic design.
  • Multi-touch surface.
  • Ambidextrous design.
  • Automatic pairing with Macs.

Cons

  • Only works with OS X El Capitan or late.
  • The shape isn’t natural by any means.
  • Can’t use the mouse while charging.

4. Anker Vertical Mouse – Rating 3.5/5

Anker Vertical Mouse

Anker is actually more commonly known as the company that creates some of the best power banks in the market, however, not a lot of people know that they have actually created some peripherals that are available in the market as well.

Now you may have heard about the company’s aim at the budget market by releasing some of the Bluetooth earbuds, and wireless speakers, but we’re talking about Anker’s rather unusual mouse. In case you haven’t figured out yet, we’re talking about the Anker Vertical mouse.

Yes, in case you are wondering, this mouse is actually vertical, and you may feel that you’re shaking someone’s hand while using it. Now this can be alarming for some, but keep in mind that it’s actually good for your wrist, and hand, protecting them against RSI (repetitive strain injury). Is the mouse actually useful? Let’s find out.

Design/Build Quality

As far as the design on this mouse is concerned, this may be the weirdest looking mouse you’ll get to see in the market, and that’s not entirely bad. We’ve talked to Anker, and the design is completely intentional. In case you are wondering, by going for a vertical design, Anker’s minimized the risk or repetitive strain injury, something that is extremely common in people who use the traditional mouse.

The mouse has a total of 5 buttons that are strategically placed in accordance with the design, this is to make sure that the users don’t feel like they’re using a mouse that’s not meant to be used as one, everything is carefully thought out, and aligned. However, keep in mind that the thumb buttons don’t work on Mac, but should work just fine on Windows based computers.

As far as the build quality’s concerned, it’s only average, the mouse is largely plastic, and that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone given the low price tag of this mouse. We’re not going to be deducting any points in this regard, because the mouse is literally dirt cheap, and it’s a good thing.

Should you break one, or it fails on you, it’ll be a lot easier to buy a new one rather than actually considering whether or not to go for it. With that said, the mouse should be able to stand the test of time, and won’t give up so easily.

Usability

We actually had a hard time writing this bit, mainly because this isn’t your usual, run off the mill mouse; it’s completely unique, and at first, we had our reservations about how you can use this mouse without really straining your end. The good thing is that this is perhaps the easiest mice to use; sure, the earlier experience may make you feel weird about holding the mouse, but after a couple of hours, you’ll get used to it, and it’ll be a lot easier.

Keeping that in mind, anyone who suffers from RSI, or fears that they may get RSI due to the excessive use of the standard mice, this is actually a really good option. However, keep in mind that this is by no means meant for gaming, and you will probably have a very different experience, but as far as you’re browsing the internet, or just using your computer as it should be used, there shouldn’t be any issues.

Pros

  • Extremely budget friendly.
  • Good for people who have RSI.
  • Easy to use once you get a hold of it.

Cons

  • Thumb buttons don’t work on Macs.

5. Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 – Rating 3/5

Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 - Best Wireless mouse 2018

The fact that Microsoft has been making peripherals for quite some time shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, after all, the company has been doing really, really good in terms of both software, as well as hardware. Every now and then, they release a wireless peripheral that takes the spotlight in one way or another. Whether it’s their weirdly shaped but innovative arc mouse, or something as simple as the Bluetooth Mobile Mouse that we’re looking at today.

Is it good? Well, we believe it is, and here’s why.

Design/Build Quality

On the surface, the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 looks pretty ordinary, and to think about it, Microsoft actually intended that. Considering how this mouse is made for people who don’t want anything fancy, and just want to use a mouse for internet, whether they’re surfing the web, or just scrolling through, the mouse is meant to do its job, and that’s a good thing.

Keeping that in mind, you don’t get anything extra with it, as a matter of fact, the mouse only comes with 2 buttons and a scroll wheel. It’s that basic, and after carefully inspecting it, there’s nothing wrong with it. The design language is perhaps the simplest of all the mice available in the market, and we quite like it.

As far as the build quality is concerned, we can confirm that the mouse is extremely lightweight, and we’d advise you not to throw it around because majority of construction is plastic, and you wouldn’t want to break the mouse.

Now the good thing is that the mouse is dirt cheap, so we can’t really complain about the build quality, it’s exactly how Microsoft intended the mouse to be.

Usability

The Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 might be the easiest mouse to use when it comes to usability, it’s simple and there are absolutely no frills whatsoever. The mouse comes with an ambidextrous design, so it doesn’t matter if you’re left handed or right handed, you’ll be able to use the mouse with great ease.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that the mouse is actually smaller than some of the other mice in the market, this can be concerning for people with larger hands, but if you’re someone with a regular sized hands, it shouldn’t create an issue.

All in all, the Microsoft Mobile Mouse 3600 is actually pretty good, it doesn’t create any issues for the majority of people, and one can use it with their eyes closed. The ambidextrous design helps people use the mouse with great ease, and the overall comfort, and ease of use is definitely a bonus to have.

Sure, there are some shortcomings like a rather small foot print, and lack of advanced features, but considering the extremely cheap price point, it all feels a lot justified.

Pros

  • Dirt cheap.
  • Good performance.
  • Easy to use.
  • Comfortable and lightweight.

Cons

  • Smaller than some of the other mice.
  • Doesn’t come with any extra features.

6. Logitech Triathlon M720 – Rating 3.5/5

Logitech Triathlon M720

Judging by the fact that we have already reviewed two of the best mice released by Logitech, it’s only safe to assume that the general public is under the impression that we are only looking at the high end products that are being provided by a specific company.

Keeping that in mind, we assure that it isn’t the case, and there are some more mice from Logitech that are going to be in the list, and won’t be breaking the bank. One such mouse is the Logitech Triathlon M720.

Yes, by the name, it sure does sound like it’s going to break records and what not, but this budget friendly mouse does have some tricks up its sleeves. Let’s find out, shall we?

Design/Build Quality

The Triathlon M720 is rather a simple mouse, there are no extra frills, or flare that will make it stand out from the rest. However, given the price point, it’s not really a bad thing since you’re still getting a pretty good deal. The design is very simple with few additional buttons, and a matte black finish on the top that will give you a comfortable grip over the mouse.

Speaking of comfort, it’s important to note that the mouse happens to be really comfortable even for longer periods of time, and while Logitech didn’t do much to enhance the ergonomics, the subtle curves are just enough to have us hold the mouse with great comfort, and we appreciate the overall design language that is used in the mouse.

Moving onto the build quality, the good news is that you won’t be disappointed, the mouse has a sturdy build, and we can assure you that you won’t be hearing any rattling whatsoever. Considering how mice have to go through a lot of use on a daily basis, we can guarantee that this won’t be breaking on you any time soon.

Just make sure that you’re careful when it comes to handling it, and it will be able to survive all the wear and tear of the time with no problems whatsoever.

Usability

The one thing we absolutely love about Logitech mice is that the amount of usability is just too good. This is because the company is always making their devices easier to use on a multitude of different platforms, and that’s not all, the overall ease of access is spectacular.

Should you be wondering, the Triathlon M720 is another Logitech mouse that ships with their Unifying dongle, meaning that it’s paired right out of the box, and should you need, it can pair with up to 3 devices at the same time. That’s not all, the dongle also allows a similar supported keyboard to be paired, finally completing the overall combo.

The battery life is pretty solid, and the good news is that it’s actually user replaceable, something that we don’t get to see much in the modern day and age. As per Logitech, the battery is going to last you at least 2 years, this coupled with clever power management, and the fact that the mouse can enter sleep mode when not in use is definitely a win-win situation.

The additional buttons are also really easy to use, and shouldn’t create many issues. All in all, we don’t have any issues as far as the usability concerns, but during our testing, we kind of ran into the conclusion that the scroll wheel is a bit sensitive for our liking, it may be completely subjective, but it’s something worth noting.

Pros

  • Easy on the pocket.
  • Long battery life.
  • Battery is user replaceable.
  • Comfortable to hold.

Cons

  • Scroll wheel can be a bit sensitive.

7. Razer Mamba – Rating 4.5/5

Razer Mamba - Best Wireless mouse 2018

The next few entries are going to be a bit expensive, so keep that in mind. We have reached a point where wireless mice are no longer limited to just productivity tasks. We’ve reached a point where wireless mice are becoming almost as good as the wired competitors.

Keeping that in mind, the mouse we are going to look at right now isn’t just a wireless mouse, it also serves as a full-fledged gaming mouse. Now keep in mind that despite the nature and the purpose of the mouse, we are still going to review it as a gaming mouse in order to know that the product is properly evaluated.

So, let’s have a look.

Design/Build Quality

As a company that largely started out with peripherals, we can say that Razer had to face some hardships, however, when it comes to the design of their products, hardly anyone can battle Razer. The company that calls itself “l33t” and has products named after some of the mythical beasts, it hardly should come as a surprise that they take design as a very strong aspect of their device.

The Razer Mamba is actually a very simple looking mouse from Razer, and while it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, we actually like the minimalistic approach. In case you are wondering, you do get the famous Chroma lighting, and we can only say that it looks amazing. The lighting isn’t overdone by any means, you get 2 light strips on each side, with the illumination in the scroll wheel, and that’s about it. Needless to say, Razer’s kept it tasteful throughout the entire mouse.

As for the design, it’s very symmetrical with no weird curves, or angles, and while people still want the fancy curves, we’re glad that Razer’s given up on that.

As for the build quality, we are really pleased to announce that Razer’s done a good job with it. Keep in mind that we’re talking about a company who has had a bad history with how good and strong their products are. The Mamba is solid, and the weight is evenly distributed everywhere. There’s no rattling of plastic, or cheap feeling to it, so far as the build quality is concerned, we can confirm that the mouse is built really well.

Usability

Now comes the important part, on the paper, the mouse may look like something that’s difficult to grasp mainly because of all the features the mouse comes loaded with. However, the good thing is that even with all the fancy features, the mouse, at its core, is extremely easy to get used to. In most cases, it’s a simple plug and play.

Should you feel the need to, you can even use the mouse with a wire, and it won’t have any issues whatsoever, the mouse does come with a cool looking charging dock, so you can put it on charge and have it look all fancy.

In case you are in need of the fancier features like controlling the Chroma lighting, or remapping the buttons, you can download and install the Razer Synapse 2.0. The Razer Synapse is the universal software that is used by all the Razer devices in the market.

You can control the lighting as per your needs, in addition to that, you can also remap the buttons, and record macros. Simply put, it’s one of the most intuitive customization software suites in the market that is simple to use, and has all the right amount of options.

The mouse also has surface tuning that allows you to properly tune the mouse according to the surface you’re planning on using it on. However, this f feature is something that is only limited to the wired mode, and won’t work in the wireless mode, something that’s understandable.

Pros

  • Great, high performance sensor.
  • Chroma lighting is tastefully done.
  • A lot of customization options.
  • Can be used with wire, or without one.
  • Surface tuning allows the best possible using experience.

Cons

  • Surface tuning only works in wired mode.

8. Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum – Rating 5/5

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum

If you think that the Logitech MX Master 2s isn’t something that you want as a wireless mouse, and you’re looking for some of the fancier features like a really powerful, and accurate sensor, then you’re at the right place. The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is probably one of the most expensive wireless/wired mice in the market, and all of that for a good reason.

For starters, this is marketed and sold as a gaming mouse, but considering how we stated earlier that the whole spectrum of wireless mice is very broad and outreaching, it actually made a lot of sense to add the mouse into the list.

With that in mind, we shouldn’t waste more time, and start having a look at just how good the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is. Let’s begin, shall we?

Design/Build Quality

There’s no denying that the design language on the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is somewhat odd to look at, the design is very futuristic, however, keep in mind that Logitech’s made it ambidextrous, so even the left handed users can fully enjoy what we know as one of the most feature packed wireless/gaming mice in the market.

There are no unnatural curves, or angled shapes that can come in between your user experience, and the overall design is very subtle, and will go well with the majority of devices that are available in the market.  Another great thing is that the natural shape of the mouse allows it to be extremely comfortable, so if you’re someone who’s known for using a mouse for several hours on a daily basis, this is a great option for you.

Although the mouse does come with RGB lighting, but due to the fact that there are not a lot of lighting zones, the lighting is mostly subtle, and it’s a good thing because it doesn’t make our mouse look like it’s coming out of a carnival.

Moving on to the build quality, we personally didn’t like the build quality of the G502 amazing, however, things are a lot different with the G900 Chaos Spectrum, the build quality across the board is as solid as it gets with the absolutely no rattling or crackling. The mouse feels premium, and works as one too.

Usability

By now, it’s safe to say that you’re already aware of the fact that the majority of Logitech mice we have tested and reviewed are geared towards usability, and making sure that the overall user experience goes as smoothly as possible. This is actually a great thing since it has allowed the users to actually be able to use the mouse even without all the advanced features that are available.

Keeping that in mind, the overall usability of G900 Chaos Spectrum is just too good, thanks to the ambidextrous design, and the plug and play nature of the mouse, we didn’t encounter any issues whatsoever. The sad thing is that the mouse doesn’t come with a charging dock, but you can charge, and use the mouse at the same time.

Considering how this is a gaming mouse, majority of the setup is done using the Logitech Gaming software, and while it may not be the best looking software in the market, it gets the job done just fine. Last but not the least, the battery life remains solid, and the mouse can be used while it’s on charging.

In all honesty, as far as the usability is concerned, we don’t think any other mouse can come closer to what the G900 Chaos Spectrum has to provide. Sure, it’s being marketed as a gaming mouse, but it can’t be denied that at its heart, it’s a great wireless mouse as well.

Pros

  • Ambidextrous design.
  • Really, really comfortable.
  • Clever, and easy to use software.
  • Lots of customization.
  • Top of the line, accurate sensor.
  • Long battery life.
  • Can be used while charging.

Cons

  • No charging dock.

9. Apple Magic Trackpad – Rating 3/5

Apple Magic Trackpad - Best Wireless mouse 2018

We are heading towards the end of our list and the good news is that we still have some pretty interesting products to show you. The product that we have right now is rather unusual to begin with. Say hello to the Apple Magic Trackpad. Now in case you are wondering why Apple came out with such a weird product, it’s okay to do so; the thing is, the trackpads on the Macbook have been revered by a lot of people, as a matter of fact, even by people who don’t use Macbooks.

So, for those who don’t known a Macbook, but do own an iMac, Apple released the Magic Trackpad. Now you’re still limited to Apple devices only, but it has a very niche audience, and the same audience is interested in something like this.

Let’s see why.

Design/Build Quality

To be fairly honest, there isn’t much about the design when it comes to the Apple Magic Trackpad, it’s almost as if Apple took the trackpad out of the Macbook, and made it available externally. Now this maybe an issue for a lot of people, but in all honesty, it isn’t a bad thing at all. At its core, the trackpad follows a very simplistic, and minimalist road in order to be functional, and that it does very, very well.

Moving on from the simple design, the build quality is nothing dubious, and since it’s Apple, we can assure that the trackpad looks and feels solid. However, there’s no real world representation to tell just how good the trackpad is, but judging by the fact that we were using it as our primary device for over a week, it’s actually built really well.

Even the overall surface area is larger than the predecessor, making it a lot easier for you to work. All in all, we’re actually really, really happy with how the trackpad is designed, and made, there are no complaints whatsoever.

Usability

As far as the usability is concerned with the Apple Magic Trackpad, there isn’t much to write about, and we don’t mean to say that because it’s bad or something, it’s not bad by any means. The reason we are saying it is because this happens to be one of the simplest peripherals that we have had the chance to use.

You do get some nice features though, features that actually improve the way you use this device instead of burdening it with things that you don’t need. For starters, the trackpad supports force click, something that has been famous in a lot of Apple devices for some time.

In addition to that, you get full gesture support that is incredibly easy to use, and very useful in several different cases. Apple includes rechargeable battery, as well as a lighting cable should you need it. Last but not the least, the device is extremely easy to setup, and can be used without any hassle once everything’s done.

The only gripe we have is that the trackpad only works on Apple devices that are running OS X El Capitan and later, if you’re okay with that, you shouldn’t have any issues whatsoever.

Pros

  • Simple and easy to use.
  • Doesn’t require any advanced setups.
  • Larger surface as compared to the predecessor.
  • Rechargeable battery lasts long.
  • Force click, and gesture support are nice additions.

Cons

  • Requires OS X El Capitan and above to work.

10. Logitech M330 Silent Plus – Rating 2.5/5

Logitech M330 Silent Plus

We’re finally on the last product on the list, and if you haven’t guessed it already, it’s another offering by Logitech, however, this one is made mainly for office use. Say hello to the Logitech M330 Silent Plus. Now the name is actually weird because it has the word “Silent” in it, a word that’s usually use for high performance computer parts.

However, upon testing, it was revealed that the naming scheme is mainly because the mouse clicks are actually very quiet, and considering how this is being marketed as an office mouse, it’s a nice thing because when you’re working in an office environment, it’s better if things are kept quiet.

With that said, let’s see how the Logitech M330 Silent Plus holds up.

Design/Build Quality

The design on this mouse is rather simple, instead of going ambidextrous, the company decided to stick to the classic office inspired design that we have seen time and again. We are by no means claiming that Logitech has done something wrong with the design, but if you’re someone who likes a bit of visual flare in their products, you are not going to get that in this mouse. However, the good news is that the design is very natural, and has a great grip. So, for anyone who’s going to be using this mouse for long hours, it certainly is a good thing. There are no additional buttons apart from the standard set, and we can’t really complain about it given the price tag.

Moving onto the build quality, Logitech’s gone with plastic again in order to keep the overall cost down, and we can’t really blame them. The mouse is geared towards office professionals, and it is a very rare sight to see them willing to spend a good amount of money.

Usability

Considering how the Logitech M330 Silent Plus is made for the office users, you need to know that it’s a very simple mouse. You don’t get any additional buttons, or extra features that are found in some of the other wireless mice, to be honest, we don’t have any complaints regarding that.

The mouse has a solid battery life, and should last you for 2 years, after that, you can get the batteries replaced. Keep in mind that the key selling point of this mouse is the fact that it uses really quiet switches. This perfect if you find yourself working in an office environment where it’s necessary to maintain the decibel levels.

We would actually like this approach in other mainstream mice as well, because it really changes your perspective about how a mouse works.

The only real issue that we ran into was inconsistent tracking that hindered our overall usage, but considering how it’s an office mouse, and you’re not require to use it too heavily, it can be ignored.

Other than that, the Logitech M330 Silent Plus is a really nice wireless mouse that is intended for office use, and gets the job done.
