A few months ago, I was in the market for a slim, lightweight and aesthetically pleasing mouse so that I can slip it in my bag and bring it to work. One that caught my eye was the Logitech Pebble M350. So, I did what all good tech people do – I bought it, and I have not regretted it yet. However, before you proceed to add it to cart, there are a few things you need to know about this mouse.
So, here’s my review of the Logitech Pebble M350.
Aesthetics and colour variants of the Pebble M350
The Logitech Pebble M350 is easily one of the slimmest mouse that I have seen and used. It measures at 59 mm (width), 26.5 mm (height) and 10.7 mm (depth) – about the size of my palm. I can easily slip it into my bag’s compartment without the unsightly bulge.
Needless to say, the slim form factor also means that the mouse is lightweight. The Pebble M350 weighs at only 100 grams with a AA battery in it, which makes it one of the most portable mice in the market.
The availability of colours is also one of the reasons that drew me to the Pebble 350. It comes in Graphite, Rose, Off-white, Blue Grey and Eucalyptus. You might even find other variants out there with cute prints selling on some e-commerce sites. Now, on to the technical specifications.
Specifications of the Pebble M350
Bear in mind, the Logitech Pebble M350 is a basic mouse. It does not have a multi-pairing feature and forward and back buttons. What it does have is the left and right buttons, a scroll wheel with the middle button and SilentTouch, which I am a huge fan of. Let me digress a little here so that you do not assume that it is completely silent.
The SilentTouch Technology, by Logitech, reduces the clicking sound of the mouse by about 90 percent. Instead of hearing the clicks, you hear a faint “trk” sound instead. If you use it for the first time, you might not be used to it because sometimes, you will feel unsure if you have clicked on something or your computer is just lagging. As you continue to use it for a longer period, I believe that you will grow fond of it as I did and of course, get used to the quietness.
Other technical specifications of the Pebble M350 include:
- a high precision optical tracking sensor technology;
- a 1,000 dpi sensor resolution;
- an 18 months battery life; and
- the Bluetooth Low Energy Technology.
Experience using the Pebble M350
Every time I take out the Pebble M350 to use it, it always makes me feel happy because I’m a sucker for aesthetics. 😂 As it is a basic mouse, I do not have any high expectations about its performance. With a relatively high dpi sensor, I have yet to face any issues gliding the mouse on different surfaces. This is good enough for my day-to-day work. Though I can’t speak for glass table top.
I had initially thought that the slim form factor might tire my hand easily due to prolong use because the top is not curved ergonomically as the other mice. Surprisingly, I have yet to experience any cramps and what not. It is just right for me but for people with larger hands, perhaps you should look at other mice like the Logitech MX Master 3 or the SuperSolid Gemini One.
Will I recommend it?
I will recommend the Logitech Pebble M350 but here’s the ‘but’.
Let’s be real. The Pebble M350 retails at only S$39. If you are on a budget and do not want to splurge on the best of the best mouse in the market, demands excellent ergonomics and features, I believe the Pebble M350 is perfect for you.
BUT, if you do a lot of creative works like video-editing, graphic designs, etc., then you should check out other mice the market. But do expect to pay more.
