Colourful!


It’s party time at Logitech as they release one of their boldest mice to date with the M238 Play Collection Wireless Mouse which comes in a variety of colours and designs that really stand out. From colourful lions to gorillas, the M238 Play Collection Wireless Mouse really pops when it comes to the design and unlike those standard looking mice, this is one cool looking peripheral. It’s also quite a small mouse and measures in at 55×38.7x95mm with a very light weight of just 0.084 grams which makes it very portable.

Installing the mouse on a Windows 10 machine was very easy and once we connected the mouse to our PC via the nano receiver, Windows 10 installed the correct drivers and we were ready to use the product in under a minute. The product also comes with a warranty guide and a quick installation setup guide that is located on the cardboard within the packet. If you do come into any issues, Logitech support is available via www.logitech.com/support/m238.

Furthermore, the M238 can be used up to 10 metres via its 2.4Ghz frequency but this is dependent on a few factors like interference. However most people should have no issues whatsoever. In terms of ergonomics, the Logitech M238 is a comfortable mouse and fits well in your hand, whether you’re a left or right hander. The buttons are easy to press and well placed with the scroll wheel quite easy to use.

The accuracy of the mouse is perfect for both work and pleasure, so whether you’re scrolling through spreadsheets, surfing the internet, using Photoshop or even playing games, the advanced optical tracking and the 1000 dpi resolution does the job very well. Another highlight of the product is that it is quite portable so no matter where you go, you can easily have this mouse ready or it can be used as a dedicated desktop mouse.
