Logitech B170 Wireless Mouse
What makes us choose this device is the attention to details and reflection of what users always wanted in their wireless mouse. The unit ships with an AA battery and a receiver which has a provision to be neatly tucked in. The scroll wheels are textured to tackle your sweaty fingers. The design is ergonomic and fits perfectly in your hand. However, if you are gifted with sharp ears you can hear the squeaky noise of the scroll wheel and explicit clicks. We didn’t feel that as a deal breaker considering the overall build quality of the product.The textured finish ensures that you have better grip while scrolling the wheel. The scroll and click were responsive with zero delays in response. It has a decent range of 10m which is more than sufficient for regular use. The battery has a life of 12 months.

- If you happen to be a designer who uses the scroll wheel for very high precision designing or editing, then you look for a higher priced device.
