Logitech has been releasing one affordable peripheral after another, and its latest wireless mouse is no different. Retailing at only RM49, the M171 is ideal for those who are always on the go and don’t want to deal with the hassle of a wired mouse.
Looking at its design, the M171 wireless mouse has an ambidextrous shape. In fact, the M171 looks identical to the MK235’s wireless mouse; it’s possible that these two mice are the very same product, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Those who only need the wireless mouse part of the combo – say, for a laptop – will find the M171 ideal for them.
As for specification, the M171 can last up to 12 months with only a single AA battery. Other than that, it has an effective range of up to 10m, which is quite a distance. The M171 also has a wireless receiver – which can be stored in the mouse when not in use – along with a one-year warranty in Asia for peace of mind.
The Logitech M171 wireless mouse is compatible with Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, as well as Linux. It is now available in Malaysia for RM49, and can be purchased in three colourways: Black/Grey, Black/Red and Black/Blue. More information on the M171 can be found on its official product page.
