Review: Logitech M585 Multi Tasking Mouse with Logitech Flow

The Logitech M585 is smarter than your average mouse. Logitech has made it multi-device compatible, and can be used with more than 1 device with Logitech Flow.

The Logitech M585 is the typical fare from Logitech. It’s rather compact and has the bumps in the right places for an ergonomic fit, and has two additional navigation buttons on the sides. The 1000 DPI sensor is nothing exceptional. In fact, I think compared to other Logitech mice, such as the M280, the M585 looks rather boring. The key difference then, is the ability to work across multiple devices.

The mouse itself supports both the USB dongle setup (Logitech Unifying receiver) and Bluetooth connection. You can pair it with your Android or iOS devices too and manually toggle using the button below the scroll wheel. But if you are setting up between two computers, you can go one step better with Logitech Flow. Logitech Flow allows you to seamlessly transit from one device to another by automatically detecting your screen edges to transit control. However, in order to get a full seamless experience, you would probably need a compatible Logitech keyboard, which for now is limited to a few models.

One thing to note, Logitech Flow implementation requires that the devices are individually paired to the two computers, and that they are on the same network. Logitech Flow not only offers control, it also allows you to copy and paste files easily between the two computers. One advantage I feel that Logitech Flow has over other software KVM implementations is the ability to use the computers independently, and also a better response time. What this means is: (1) improved productivity: You don’t need to switch to a different set of keyboard / mice for your other computers and (2) a neater desktop!

Back to the mouse, it uses an invisible optic sensor so no bright red laser flashes, and the compatibility with different surface material is pretty high. The bulk of the mouse is covered in a textured rubber for a generally nice grip. The curved profile makes offers a nice relax grip. I felt the left and right click buttons used too much plastic, and were a little noisy in action. The scroll wheel is pretty good though. Each scroll level is indented, and yet, the wheel is very smooth, which allows for very precise scrolling.

The M585 Mouse is sold exclusively online on Lazada through the Logitech Online exclusive store. There is an ongoing promotion for the M585 – 15% off! M585 for the whole month of October at only $41.65 (original price $49!). Shipping is free and also super fast.
