Good for travel, but unsuitable for people with big hands
This mouse which was given to me to review, looks fancy by its minimalist and flat design, but light pink is the wrong color for me being a dude and unfortunately, it is also WAY too small for my larger hands.
I therefore got my wife to help with the review, and this is the short summary of our experience:
While I usually use a wireless mouse which is more ergonomically shaped and larger in size, my wife uses a Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball Mouse due to wrist strain she was suffering from when using a traditional computer mouse.
ADVANTAG...ES: - USB dongle is hidden in the mouse, which is very convenient for travelling or on the go, as you cannot lose it. - There is no click or scroll sound, therefore you cannot disturb anybody sitting nearby as far as using the mouse is concerned.

Minimalist, quiet and nicely designed mouse
This mouse has a minimalist and slim design which I like. It has a gorgeous look and feels comfortable. It features quiet clicking and scrolling (it's not silent). It fits nicely in my palm but I have a small hand and short fingers. I believe its size should suit most persons. I like the dual connectivity: nano UBS receiver and Bluetooth. The nano usb receiver is housed inside the mouse - HOW COOL IS THAT! Less chances of the receiver going missing if not in use! The lid of the mouse comes off pretty easy too! Since my ultrabook only has two us...b ports, being able to use Bluetooth is amazing. Regarding bluetooth connectivity, I was able to pair my peeble mouse to my laptop in under 30 seconds, despite the first attempt failed. For pairing: I pressed the bluetooth button down for 2 seconds until the blue light for pairing started to blink. Then I went to bluetooth settings on my laptop, clicked on add a new device. The peeble mouse was found within a few seconds. The first attempt with pairing failed. I clicked on the: 'Try again' button and pairing was completed in 5-8 seconds, and the mouse was ready to go. I have had no issues using the bluetooth connectivity. I only use this mouse with my work laptop, so I can't comment on the practicalities of pairing it to multiple devices. The peeble mouse M350 has a standard optical sensor, no dark field sensor. So, it doesn't work on clear glass but work really well other surfaces. I have a plastic covering on my desk (to protect it from water and spills), and this mouse is the only one I have used so far that works on plastic just as well as any other surface I have tried it on. I am giving this mouse 5 stars for three reasons: it does its job well, I love being able to use bluetooth connectivity and it works well in all surfaces I have used it. This mouse works with 1 AA battery, which is supposed to last 18 months. I can't comment on battery life as I have only used it for a few weeks so far.
Pebble Wireless Mouse M350 supports usb and bluetooth connectivity but the latter is very weak
Like most, I have used many mouse over the years as well as trackball, touch pad, Wacom tablet with brush strokes and gesture control using Leap Motion. Never really gotten into gaming mouse with many and programmable buttons. Part of the reason of trying all these different devices over the years is because of wrist pain at times because I use mouse up to 16 hours a day, most days of the week. The only exception is Wacom tablet, used for photo editing. Back when I used to use Windows laptops, I still used the mouse but since moving to OSX eco...system, I almost never use a mouse but stick to the touch pad which is a joy to use, except for the newest Macbook Pro where both keyboard and touch pad are not as good as they are used to be. No testing was performed using Windows machine. Instead, the Pebble Wireless Mouse M350 was tested on three Macbook Pro laptops, older and very new models. M350 supports both Bluetooth and 2.4GHz USB connectivity. It is awesome to have both especially given many devices competes for USB ports and Macbook Pro doesn't even have a USB port anymore. However, I had significant difficulty bluetooth pairing this Pebble Wireless Mouse M350. It only worked with one of the three machines. USB connectivity otoh has no issue at all, quick and reliable. M350's buttons and LED are intuitive and based on minimalist approach. There are only 2 buttons - (1) On/Off and (2) pairing / switching between USB / Bluetooth. Manual isn't really necessary anymore. It is small, light, thin, elevated towards the back to provide ergonomic feel and palm support. It is symmetrical hence works for both left and right handers. It can easily slip into a pocket given its small size. It takes one AA battery, preinstalled and already turned on but won't use any power until the plastic slip that covers the battery connection is removed - nice touch. Unlike old mouse, battery cover is the whole of the top cover where buttons are part of it. Most modern thing about this mouse is that the cover is held to the body through 3 magnets. M350 is a standard 2 buttons mouse with rubberised scroll wheel in the middle which supports clicking. It is a step scroll wheel and unfortunately can't be changed to smooth fast scroll wheel like you could with Logitech Anywhere MX. It has a standard optical sensor, no dark field sensor. Therefore, it won't work on clear glass but would work in most other surfaces and doesn't require a mouse pad. Like most Logitech mouse, button click and scroll wheel provide good feedback and are quiet. Definitely feels like it can withstand heavy use as a workhorse. Shame that Bluetooth connectivity is poor. I would prefer the USB receiver to be an Unified receiver so it would support many devices and so re-pairing to a new receiver is possible if you happen to lose the receiver. My other Bluetooth mouse is the Apple Magic mouse which of course feels more premium with its translucent top and aluminium construction and even thinner profile (2.16cm) compared with the M350 (2.65cm). Because Apple Magic mouse slops down at the back, it feels much slimmer than the Logitech. The bigger difference is in terms of weight. Apple Magic mouse with battery weights at 105g compared with 78g with the M350, probably because Apple Magic mouse requires 2 AA batteries rather than one single AA battery as with the Logitech. Lighter mouse means less strain on the hand & arm hence M350 is the winner. M350 battery is said to last for 18 months according to manufacturer. The biggest difference is that Apple Magic mouse is 3x more expensive than Logitech M350.
Logitech - Very Quiet and Responsive Cordless Mouse!!
I have had this Cordless Mouse now for a week or so. When it arrived I must admit I thought I had lost the receiver when unpacking - but later realised it is housed inside the actual mouse. Because I initially thought I had lost the receiver I set-up the Mouse using Bluetooth. This mouse can be used with either Bluetooth or Wirelessly. I used the "Add a Bluetooth Device" and it connected very quickly. All was good until I left the computer and returned some hours later. The Bluetooth had disconnected itself. It was then that I discovered where ...the receiver was - and connected using it. This connection was easy and straight forward - and has not had an issue for the week. This mouse is smaller in size and it does take you a while for your hand to get used to a smaller mouse. I just loved just how quiet this mouse is and also how responsive. Initially I was going to use it for a while and then return to my own cordless mouse - but I like it so much - I'm staying with it for the time being. The build quality could be better. When you separate the 2 pieces of the mouse you can see that it is very basic and all plastic and not as strong as I thought it would be. I feel that it would be more suitable for the adult market rather than children due to it's build quality. It takes a single AA battery which would be very easy to install. It has a left and right button - and a scroll wheel - and, so far, they all work well. In my opinion based on my comments above - this is definitely a keeper!!
Different feel nice and quiet
- Great battery life on spec (I haven't tested for 18 months yet)
- Quiet clicking and scrolling
- Colour options
- Bluetooth and USB link connection options
- Great reactivity
- Easy setup
- Minimal packaging
- Good price point when available ($39.95 AUD on Logitech's site)...

Usable for people with small hands. No manual. Works via USB receiver.
A big minus for not supplying a manual - or at least an internet link with a manual (the provided link does not exist). Technically it works fine (via USB receiver - could not make blue tooth work), but lacking sufficient tactile feedback on the left/right click.
But as for me: I can't use it: This mouse disappears in my big hand and therefore I can't operate it.
The thing is: I have very big hands. It took me a very long time to find the big MS wireless mouse, which I am using (picture) - every othe...
I have owned and discarded wireless mice before, so I was interested to learn if the Pebble M350 was going to be an improvement on my previous experiences. I am delighted to say it is! The difference is chalk and cheese. (Please ignore the pun with cheese and mouse!!)
The mouse has a very different feel to it, being flatter than the other devices I have used and certainly much quieter - a VERY subdued, barely audible click indeed when using it. But the most significant thing for me is the speed. With previous wireless models, game playing was...something of a problem with the speed between the 'click' and the action taking place suffering a small lag causing the game to be almost impossible to play if you need instant reaction time. With the Logitech M350 mouse, the moment you plug in the usb, the computer finds it and links it to the device and off you go. AND there is no delay between clicking the mouse and the action taking place on screen. The flatter shape takes a very short time to get used to and the overall feel is very comfortable. This mouse also has the added advantage of Bluetooth connectivity and although MY computer doesnt have that capability, our smart TV does if I want to use it on there. All in all a superior product with no apparent flaws. My old mouse is unplugged and packed away and my M350 is up and running. One word of warning for those who buy the mouse, the usb stick is inside the mouse, so un-clip the front cover to access it. I had a few moments where I thought the usb stick had not been sent before I managed to discover how to release the cover and find it. The lack of instructions (none are required to be honest) meant I had to work that part out myself.
