Logitech M330 Silent Plus Wireless Mouse Review

I picked up the Logitech M330 Silent Plus Wireless Mouse to replace a clicky, aging, and dying Microsoft mouse that I’ve been using for years.

This mouse saved my life! My girlfriend would have killed me if I continued to use my previous Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500. One million loud clicks per minute that I do while surfing the internet, was enough to drive a person insane. I have to admit that clicking from the Microsoft mouse was starting to get on my nerves too! That and the wheel was about wore out and wouldn’t turn. It was time for something new.

While searching for a mouse that was silent, or at least semi-quiet, I found the Logitech M330 Silent Plus Wireless Mouse. The Logitech M330 is ergonomically designed, with an angled thumb groove along the left-hand side where your thumb sits very comfortably. As a right-hander, this feels natural to me, but it’s not mirrored on the other side, so southpaws’ may not find the mouse useful. The rubberized texture on both sides offers good grip, as does the track wheel, which scrolls as smoothly as you’d hope.

There is nothing flashy about the M330 Silent Plus. It is a simple looking three button mouse, like every standard mouse. Left and right clicks along with center click which is located into a scroll wheel. It’s a good mouse, but what about its main selling point: the silent click? Logitech hasn’t managed to make an entirely silent mouse, but the M330 is certainly on the way there. Press down on the left or right buttons and rather than the distinctive ‘clicking’ sound we all know, the M330 produces what I would call a muffled click. In a quiet room you can hear a click if you listen real closely, but if you have your ear that close to the mouse, I think it’s fair to say you’re going to hear something with any mouse. The scroll wheel feels smooth and is actually nearly silent. All in all, the M330 is admirably quiet and would be great for any office environment.

It takes a single AA battery, which Logitech promises 24 months of use. We’ll see how it does with real life use.

The Good: A simple design, comfortable materials and reliable performing mouse. Best of all, it works as advertised and drastically reduces the sound compared to other mice.

The Bad: Keep in mind that Logitech M330 silent plus is not designed for both left and right-hand users. It is best suited for right-hand users only. Unfortunately, lefties are out of luck.

The Bottom Line: Logitech has built a very good & affordable mouse here. If you’re looking to create the least amount of noise possible, pick up one of these.

  1. I bought the M330 during the Black Friday sale at Staples 2 years ago for about $15, which is less than the $20 list price. I can palm a basketball and it fits just fine because of the thumb grip–I use it only for non-gaming and I don’t care about noise. The left and right buttons seem to be less responsive, even with a fresh battery. I’ll buy another if it is on sale again because it is comfortable.
