Logitech M187 Mini Wireless Optical Mouse Review

  The pandemic that requires people to work from home may make some of you realize the importance of supporting computing accessories to support comfort while working from home.

Logitech M187

 The mouse may be one of the accessories that you consider. However, the use of a mouse on a laptop is often abandoned by users, based on the assessment of this peripheral device, it requires you to prepare a special space to store it.

 This may not be necessary for those of you who are considering brevity in storage so that you can take them in activities when the pandemic ends and your mobility is as it was before the pandemic.

Logitech has been aware of this for a long time, which is why it has introduced a very small wireless mouse, the M187. This mouse may be familiar to you, because Logitech has presented a product with a similar naming and design several years ago.

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

 Questioning the comfort of holding the mouse when in use, even small-handed users may still think this mouse is too small. However, grasping using the palm method is that the palms cover the entire top surface of the device. Logitech M187 is still able to provide comfort.

However, to press the right-click and left-click buttons, the position of the finger must be slightly raised, it can cause discomfort if used actively and for a long time. Meanwhile, the unit we tried came in white with gray trim on the sides and on the scroll wheel.

 Given its tiny size and a mouse in the casual category, it's no surprise that the Logitech M187 comes only with the support of these buttons and scroll wheel. If the top surface comes with a shiny material, on the sides, the Logitech M187 comes with a matte material.

 In addition, the scroll wheel comes in a rubber-like bandage so it is not slippery when used. Meanwhile, considering that Logitech is not promoting the M187 as a silent device, don't be surprised to hear a sound when you press the click button or roll the wheel.

 The presence of these sounds may be annoying, but if you like them because they help stimulate the brain, then the Logitech M187 is for you. And the question of precision, as long as we used it, we were only treated to a minimal lag and good precision.

 And we also need to remind you, that the Logitech M187 is a wireless mouse, so you don't have to worry about limitations or complications caused by cables. You can take advantage of this mouse directly after attaching the connecting dongle to your computer or laptop.

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

 In addition, you can enjoy the wireless capabilities of this mouse up to a distance of 10 meters, although it should not be obstructed by objects for the smooth navigation of the cursor. It's just that, like a mouse in general, this Logitech experiences a little pause when the mouse is placed on a shiny surface, including the floor.

 As such, we recommend that you use a mouse pad if you must use it on the floor.


Carrying the small size, we do not recommend this mouse to be used by users with large palms. Apart from size, other things that this device has to offer are quite capable of providing a pleasant user experience.

 The joy of using the Logitech M187 mouse might be even more enjoyable for budget consumers, because this mouse is offered for 999 rs.
