A while back, I was advising you to get the Logitech Wireless keyboard K230 and the Logitech Wireless mini-mouse M187 as one of the best solutions for cheap wireless keyboards and mice. Now one year after, it seems that I’d like to reconsider what I said.
More than one year ago, I was on the lookout for a cheap keyboard and mouse for my new Windows 8.1 laptop. I am talking about the Wireless Mini Mouse M187 from Logitech that you’re seeing in the above screenshot. And after almost one year without any problems whatsoever, I have now started seeing issues related to its battery life.
Around 1-2 months ago, I noticed that my cursor froze or that the mouse didn’t reply at all. So in order to make it work, I either had to put it to ‘off’ for a few minutes and then back to ‘on’. And if that didn’t work either, then I had to removed the battery, put it back, and then wait for a few more minutes.
This is already the second time it happens in a very short while, so I am wondering – is there a problem with this device? After I have replaced the battery with a new one, the problem disappeared. But do I really have to replace the battery every once in 2 months, when Logitech is claiming that it is supposed to have a much longer battery life?
If you have been affected by these problems, as well, please leave your comment below. Because I’d really love to hear from others, as I highly believe I am not the single one affected by these problems. Thanks!
