Logitech M187, The Economical Wireless Mouse

A pandemic that requires people to work from home may make some of you aware of the importance of computing accessory support to support comfort when working from home.

The mouse may be one of the accessories included in your consideration material. However, the use of the mouse on a laptop is often abandoned by the user, on the basis that the assessment of this peripheral device requires you to set up a special space to store it.

This may not be needed by those of you who consider brevity in storage so that it can be carried along in activity when the pandemic ends and your mobility takes place as before the pandemic.

Logitech has long been aware of this, hence presenting a very small wireless mouse that is M187. This mouse may be familiar to you, as Logitech has presented products with similar naming and design a few years ago.

This time, however, we found one noticeable difference between this new version and the previous version, namely the embedding of the Logi logo on the upper surface. Because in the predecessor version, the logo embedded on the top surface of the device is Logitech.

In the comfort of grasping the mouse when used, even small-handed users may still judge this mouse too small. However, grasping it with the palm method is the palm holding the entire surface of the top of the device. Logitech M187 is still capable of providing comfort.

It’s just that, to press the right-click and left-click buttons, the position of the finger should be slightly raised, can cause discomfort if used actively and over a long period of time. Meanwhile, the unit we tried came in white with gray embellishments on the sides and on the scroll wheel.

Given its tiny size and casual mouse size, it’s no surprise that this Logitech M187 comes with just the support of buttons and scroll wheels. If the upper surface comes with shiny material, on the sides, the Logitech M187 comes with matte material.

In addition, the scroll wheel comes in a rubber-like band so it is not slippery when used. Meanwhile, considering Logitech doesn’t promote this M187 as a silent device, don’t be surprised when you hear a sound when you press a click button or roll the wheel.

The presence of this sound may be annoying, but if you like it because it helps stimulate the brain, then this Logitech M187 is for you. And the precision, during using it, we are only treated to the experience of minimal use of lag and good precision.

And also we need to remind you that this Logitech M187 is a wireless mouse, so you don’t have to worry about the limitations or complexity caused by wire cable. You can make use of this mouse directly after pairing the connecting dongle on your computer or laptop.

This dongle carries a plug and play method, meaning you can immediately use the mouse as soon as the dongle is installed on your computer, and you don’t need to download or adjust certain settings first.

In addition, the wireless capabilities of this mouse can be enjoyed up to a distance of 10 meters, although it is best not to be blocked by objects for the smooth process of navigating the cursor. It’s just that, like most mice, Logitech experiences a slight pause when the mouse is placed on a shiny surface, including the floor.

As such, we recommend that you use a mouse base if you have to use it on the floor.

Conclusion
Carrying a small size, we do not recommend this mouse for use by large-palm users. In addition to size, everything else this device offers is quite capable of delivering a fun usage experience.

The fun of using the Logitech M187 mouse may be even more enjoyable for budget consumers, as it is offered for USD14.5
