There are times when setting the baseline is more important than raising the bar. A new standard has been set for Logitech’s most basic productivity mouse with the Rs 8817 Logitech Signature M650 Wireless Mouse. There are only five buttons on this mouse, which is by design as simple as possible. That leaves us the opportunity to point out all its deficiencies, including its lack of an accurate sensor capable of tracking on glass, its inability to connect to multiple devices, or the lack of additional input. Yet it’s still impressive how well-designed and functional it is. With this mouse, you will have very good value for your money.
A contrast between the Signature M650 and the most cheap office mice is that it looks refreshingly modern. With a two-tone scroll wheel, polished palm rest, and rippled sides, it looks modest. I like the fact that simple mice can be made more elegant by paying a bit of attention to their aesthetics.
In addition to coming in two sizes, Logitech offers two different models of the M650. As for the M650 L, the company describes it as a model for larger hands. The standard model is designed for people with small to medium hands. Left-handed models are also available in both sizes. There are five color choices available for right-handed mice (white, black, red, blue, and rose); black and white are the only choices available for left-handed mice.
There are plenty of options, but the M650 is relatively narrow and small, so I suggest going with the large version unless most mice seem unwieldy to you. My hands are average to small, but I have problems using the standard Signature M650. My pinky and pointer finger hangs off the side, and I cannot keep my grip on the mouse. In my opinion, the large version is the best.
You will find limited comfort with the M650 no matter what size you choose. For the standard model, it measures 2.5 inches by 4.25 inches by 1.45 inches in height, while for the large model, it measures 2.6 inches by 4.7 inches by 1.6 inches in height.
It is impossible to grip the mouse tightly unless your thumb and pinky receive support from the sides. In spite of its low price, the mouse weighs 3.92 ounces, which is heavier than you would expect for its size.
Two side buttons, a clickable scroll wheel, and a rubberized grip complete the standard five-button layout. The underside also includes a power switch and a sixth button for pairing wirelessly. In addition to these simple but effective buttons, Logitech added subtle tactile feedback to the scroll wheel, and indented side inputs better help guide your thumb into position.
The Logitech Signature m650 wireless mouse utilizes a basic optical tracking sensor by Logitech that operates between 400 dpi and 4,000 dpi. For word processing and web browsing, which are what this mouse is designed for, that’s a high minimum and low maximum resolution, but that’s enough for the tasks for which it’s intended. Logitech warns its premium mice like the MX Master 3S that its tracking capability is limited due to the sensor’s inability to work on glass surfaces.
The M650 impresses most with its connectivity and power, the two most important features of a wireless mouse. A 2.4GHz (USB dongle) wireless connection is Logitech’s alternative to Bluetooth, which is used by the majority of cheap cordless mice. In offices or other areas with many wireless devices, the Logitech Bolt dongle should provide a more stable connection, whereas Bluetooth should be fine for most users. It can also be used to connect to Logitech keyboards and headsets wirelessly without taking up multiple USB ports on your computer. As a bonus, the mouse comes with a slot to tuck the dongle inside beneath the battery, which is particularly helpful if you intend to carry the mouse around on business trips or commutes.
On a single AA battery, the Signature M650 can last up to 24 months, according to Logitech. Despite this astounding fact, we would be remiss if we did not mention that disposable batteries generate e-waste over their lifetimes. While we would prefer a rechargeable battery, this one is not expected at this price.
There are more options than you need
Logitech provides a configuration app, even though most users will not require one because of the M650’s modest resolution and limited features. In Logitech Options Plus, you can re-assign three of the five top buttons as well as adjust cursor speed.
It’s one of the best mouse options around for beginners who may be new to customizing a mouse. Options Plus is stylish and extremely user-friendly. Logitech dumbs down the dpi settings to classic cursor speeds, but it’s undeniably more accessible and a reasonable choice here, especially if you have a lot of people to control.
The verdict: Good price for basic pointing
We consider today’s more or less standard features like the ability to switch between multiple devices more or less standard, unlike the Logitech signature m650 price in Pakistan. Although you can choose the large size, it’s a bit narrow. Microsoft’s Bluetooth Ergonomic Mouse offers additional features and an ergonomic shape. It’s only Rs 2,205 more but is a better option for only Rs 2,205 more. It is also possible to integrate some simple gaming mice into office workflows, like the Razer Deathadder V2. For Rs 8,817, the M650 is an excellent wireless mouse that will look great, provide multiple connection options, and have great battery life. The device will suffice if you just need something to get you through the day.
