Logitech M238 Wireless Mouse



Who said input devices like your computer mouse and keyboard would fade into obsolescence with the rise of touchscreens? Logitech, the world's largest makers of mouse breathed new life in their wireless mouse collection by adding new and playful design.

Introducing the 2015 Logitech Play Collection, hauled with inspiration from the Milan Design Week, the different designs available includes the Ophelia Owl, Francesca Fox, Marc Monkey, Blue Facets and Red Facets. 3 of them are animal themed and the other 2 are simply patterned designs. Logitech send me the animal themed design mouse with the Marc Monkey printed on it.

The new range is targeted at normal end users who are looking at sprucing up their desktop with a colourful mouse design, with a fixed DPI of 1,000 dpi, it would not attract the gamers league.
