Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The Logitech M305 proved to be a very capable and inexpensive 2.4 GHz wireless mouse. The M305 is also easy to use thanks to the fact that you just plug it in and it works. There really isn't much more to say than that as the M305 really doesn't have any flaws or known issues about it that need to be addressed. If we had to say one thing that we disliked about this mouse it would have to be the mouse wheel button. You have to press down on it fairly hard for it to click and we are used to gaming mice that require less force to be pressed. That is obviously just our opinion, but goes to show you there really isn't anything on this mouse that we would change.
The performance of the M305 was on par with what we'd expect for a mainstream wireless mouse and thanks to the SetPoint software we were able to adjust it to work exactly how we wanted. We used the mouse for several weeks and the battery life barely budged, so the claim that the single AA battery will last for up to 4 months doesn't sound too far fetched. We'll continue to use the mouse and will update this article if the battery life falls noticeably short.
When it comes to pricing the Logitech M305 is available in dozens of colors with prices varying due to color popularity. Our online shopping engine has the Logitech Wireless Mouse M305 ranging in price from $18 to $30 depending on the color and design. The exact mouse that we looked at here today is sold under the name Silver Filament and has part number 910-002463. When shopping for mice there are two main types of tracking methods, laser and optical. The Logitech M305 is an optical mouse that is RF wireless has has a 1000 DPI rating. Not bad for a five button mouse that has a three year warranty for roughly $20. The lower priced models feature solid colors and the higher prices ones feature more modern designs on them. All of the Logitech M305 mice feature the same guts, so buy accordingly.
As you can see the Logitech M305 is a solid general purpose wireless mouse. Logitech has been around for over 25 years and have sold more than a
billion mice since they started selling them, so it better not have any
Legit Bottom Line: The Logitech M305 is a great wireless mouse with no glaring issues or defects that should keep you from picking one up. Just remember that it is small and doesn't have side buttons like mice you might have used before, it has tilt wheel buttons!
