Target had these for $7 too. Just bought two of them - the only two without scribble art designs on them.

I really really want one, just because it's a good deal. But I don't need one, my M305 is still just fine.

Can you click the mouse wheel laterally to scroll sideways like you can on some of the other models? I ask because the other models have the left/right arrows at the wheel and I don't see any on this model.

Awesome deal. Too bad I brought it for 10 bucks on BF.

Great mouse, in for one. Actually using one right now as is my lady sitting next to me. Both have lasted quite some time and see them lasting for a while longer.

This seems to be dead, when I get to the Best Buy site , I cannot add this to the cart.

Knowing that this DOES have USB dongle storage inside the battery compartment is good news. On another subject, because this mouse only uses 1 battery, I like to use up all my "used" AA batteries in the mouse. I usually get several weeks or months from batteries that stopped working in whatever device they were in. I mostly use rechargeables, but for the alkalines that I do require, this lets me squeeze that last bit of life out of them.

I was in a store yesterday and saw this exact mouse for this price. I want to say it was Target but don't hold me to that. I really should pick one up for this price as my son has chewed the mouse wheel of my old logitech I used for my laptop. It still scrolls but hangs up sometimes. This seems pretty similar to that one so for the price I might as well replace it. Stores should market to kids directly. "Go eat daddies electronics because its fun." And then he can come buy replacements from us. :)

@meanolthing: you are correct, previous models did not have the compartment for storage. Take a look at the V200/V220 models where there is a clunky bar-like receiver that stuck out and many people have broken them by kicking or knocking into it while it is plugged into the front of their computer. The new technology is the unifying receiver that allows you to sync up to 6 devices with one receiver so you can free up your precious USB slots. Its a neat feature to mix and match your style of Mouse and Keyboard and even headset to one receiver.

@egagroupusa: Agree, I'm looking at my m315 mouse right now and there's a little slot in the battery bay where the universal receiver is supposed to be stored. Maybe previous models didn't have the compartment?

As a seller of these types of Logitech mice (mouses?), Logitech does indeed have a travel compartment inside the mouse next to the battery slot for the receiver for storage for most mice models from the M185 and up. This does include the M215, 305, 310, 315, 325, 505, 510, 515, 525, and 705. As to why Logitech felt the need to make so many models so similar to each other is another issue. It is almost unnecessary to remove the receiver since the receiver itself is a micro size that one can leave it in the USB slot when transporting your laptop around.

Anyone else amazed at just how cheap these are now? I thought $9.99 last year was low, and that was with a 2 inch long reciever! Sorry, old feeling moment.

@spauldingd: I didn't realize anyone was actually going to read what I wrote. That's a lot of pressure to provide accurate information. Now I know how all those journalists who cover breaking news feel :-)

In that spirit, I have a correction. The M315 DOES have a place to store the receiver, however you have to remove the battery cover to get to it. As mentioned, I've never changed the battery, so I never noticed it before. Also, I use it for my work laptop and leave it on my desk (travel mouse stays in by laptop bag), so I never needed to store the receiver.

I just learned something about my stuff because of you!

@spauldingd: I think the 305 (I have) is the last model where you can store the receiver in the mouse. After that, I think their idea was to just stick the mouse into the laptop and leave it there which makes sense.

Thanks for the heads up about not having storage for the USB dongle. I have an M215 and it does have a storage spot and assumed the M315 would as well. I guess I will make the M215 my travel mouse and use the M315 for everyday use.

I'm using this mouse right now. It's simple, but it's pretty comfortable for me to use. One minor (for me) drawback is that there's no thumb button for the browser "back" function. I've had it for 6 months or so of daily use at work for 8+ hours a day and have yet to change the battery. It's hard to go wrong with a wireless mouse for $7!

One other thing I just thought of. I wouldn't recommend this for a travel mouse since there's no place to store the receiver in the mouse, so it would be likely to get lost.

I just looked at it again and couldn't resist at that price. I just bought a mouse that I don't even need. THANKS A LOT WOOT! LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!
