My Take On The Logitech B170 Wireless Mouse

This mouse’s performance is pretty excellent, and very it is comfortable to use. B170 also gives you a premium feel while using the mouse as it’s designed stylishly. This mouse also has excellent build quality.

You also get a faster response while using this Logitech B170 wireless mouse with almost no lag. Logitech is one of the most reputable and recognised companies in the world that produce excellent accessories, so you can always trust this brand.

I will not recommend it for people using the mouse for 3d software like blender.

Also for quick precision games like CS go or any other fps, it is not recommended.

Features: Logitech B170 Wireless Mouse

Logitech B170 wireless mouse is wireless and also has 1000 dpi advanced optical tracking. This advanced optical tracking ensures the mouse works on almost all surfaces.

It also has a Nano USB receiver that is very tiny, and you can plug it in and use the mouse. The pairing also doesn’t take much time. It is instantaneous and does not require installing any additional software.

This mouse also uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology that works even if the mouse is ten (10) m or thirty-three (33) feet away.

-The B170 also comes with a single (1) AA+ battery, which has a 12 months battery life, and you, my friend, need not worry about changing the batteries, at least for the first year. The batteries supported on the device are AA+ type.

The mouse’s product dimensions are 9.8 x 6.2 x 3.5 cm, weighing just 70 grams. This is a very portable and small size wireless mouse, and it’s pretty compact, so you can also carry this anywhere. The mouse is built well and is durable.

-This Logitech B170 wireless mouse also needs one battery, so this is pretty lightweight.

B170 also has an auto sensor that starts working immediately when you move or touch the mouse and switches off automatically on its own after a period of no use.

There is also no light on the back; not having this will save some power when compared to other mice.

-This mouse is ambidextrous; It supports both right and left-handed individuals.

The left and right mouse buttons click just fine, and the wheel has a matt finish and allows a better grip.


  • This mouse is not ideal for individuals with small hands, as the mouse’s size is a bit small.
  • It also has a loud click sound, which can be annoying for some people.
  • Clicking on the scroll wheel may feel hard sometimes.



Logitech B170 Mouse FAQs

Question: Does the mouse go in ‘IDLE’ mode if not in use? Do I have to use the on/off switch every time, if not?

Answer: There is no standby or idle mode, and you will have to use the on-off switch each time to save battery.

Question: Is the B170 mouse right for gaming?

Answer: I don’t think this is perfect for gaming. This Logitech B170 wireless mouse has been designed for regular office and home use only.

Question: What is the difference between Logitech M235 vs Logitech B170?

Answer: I am using M235 for almost two years now. I have one at home, and I needed another mouse for the office.
So after looking at various options, I noticed the B170 is made of plastic and does not have any rubber on its body.
B170 is bigger in size than the M235 and much better to handle in slightly thicker or big hands.
B170 also has a very smooth operation, on wooden rest and using it on the floor, and it works quite well compared to M235.
