This time I got to test out the Logitech M585 mouse! Yes, this is a logitech mouse review. I was ordering it through Lazada at night and well… I was delivered the next day?! I was very surprised at the shipping speed. In any case, this is under the exclusive Logitech online store on their site. I got other stuff too like wireless keyboards but that’ll be another post.
So how’s the mouse?
Well, firstly I had to open it and I am so glad it’s easy to take out without scissors.
No more accidentally stabbing self with knife/scissors when there’s a perforation to break the plastic out at the back.
And it comes like this! The battery is supposed to last for 24 months so we’ll see…
The little bit is your unifying receiver dongle thing if your computer doesn’t have bluetooth.
But firstly before you use it, you need to install the driver which is on the instructions. It’ll lead you to Logitech Options.
Ok, here’s the thing, I tested it with a few computers. If you have the latest Windows OS or the latest Apple ones, you’re safe. This mouse will work for you.
I tried it on an older system and it couldn’t recognize it but this shouldn’t matter if you’ve updated your OS.
If you’re using a pretty old computer, a wireless mouse might not work for you and a new mouse is probably going to be one of the last things you need to update.
So how do I find it? It’s a pretty decent mouse with rather precise scrolling if you like to read or have to read work documents. It has two side buttons which you can programme in Logitech Options and oh… One of the neatest features is this…
You can switch the mouse on different computers. That’s why it’s an “Option”, you can programme the “1” to be on one computer and then “2” on another. It works best if one of the computers uses bluetooth so that your other computer can use the unifying dongle if it doesn’t have bluetooth on it.
With that, I TESTED OUT SOMETHING ELSE.
Did you know the Logitech M585 let’s you “flow” from one computer to another? It can copy paste text too so if you’re using this in an office and you’re on two computers, you don’t have to email it to yourself or use a thumb drive. Just copy your text and scroll past your computer’s monitor to get into the the computer and paste.
And yes. IT DOES WORK for Apple/PC. Whatever you prefer to call it Mac or Apple, Windows or PC, it just works ok? You can look see my video.
So what do you think? I’m definitely stuffing this mouse into my laptop bag for my “grab and go” work set.
If you want to get this mouse for the month of October 2017, it’s 15% off their usual price and I also went to a specific bookstore that’s pretty popular here and it’s definitely cheaper to get it on Lazada.
