I ordered a Logitech M525 mouse from Amazon. The Logitech website states in its page title "Full-size mouse"

It arrived today and by looking through the transparent plastic cover and comparing the size physically to other mice, it is only slightly larger than my partner's Logitech M305 laptop mouse and no where near as large as my standard size Logitech MX518 mouse (I, of course, expected the M525 to be the size of the MX518).

I'm sure Amazon will accept the return without any issues as it is, but what if I was to open the packaging?

I ask, because I want to take it out of its packaging to try it to at least see if I can get used to it. Then I wouldn't have to return it.

There's no return rights under the trade's descriptions act.

 

You can, however, return it within 7 days under the distance selling regulations. I'm sure Amazon wont quibble - just don't completely obliterate the packaging!

I see your point, but to me, it's not as it was described by Logitech.

 

It's not a full-size mouse compared to my old MX518, my G5 or my work's standard Dell mouse. This M525 is definitely a small mouse.

I am unsure if that means I could technically open the package.

Either way, I've decided not to open the packaging, to make things easier. I'll just try my partners mouse and imagine if it was slightly bigger. I get the feeling I won't enjoy the experience, as I game on a desktop PC.

 i would say yes, since one of the other conditions mentions unopened. you could try an online chat with an amazon rep to confirm?

You'd absolutely be able to return this even with opened packaging Although  i wouldn;t bother opening it as it's obvious you wont like it :p

I'll vote yes, you opened the packaging then discovered it isn't the item you wanted, you'll have to stand firm

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Would be easier for them if I don't open it :)

For reference, I just researched the dimensions:

M305    W57mm    L95mm    H39mm
M525    W60mm    L102mm    H38mm
MX518    W70mm    L130mm    H36mm
G5    W67mm    L130mm    H45mm

So yeh, the M525 is definitely a small mouse and not "Full-size" like Logitech's page title says (which is also what Google uses for its search results - that's why I didn't expect it to be small)

I still need a new mouse, so dimensions will now factor in to that decision :)

ive got a logitech g9x, love it. but they're hard to get hold of now, amazon only sells second hand expensive ones, ebay has some from the states though

 

 

 

edit

apologies, just realised your original mouse is neither corded or gaming!!!

Where do they state the thresholds of what "full-size" mean? ;)

With Amazon you don't need to worry.

I have returned items nearly a year after I have had them as they developed a fault.

Amazon has been flawless in helping and refunding.  Just make sure you buy direct from them, not a marketplace seller.

What size description is a full sized mouse officially?

The average desktop mouse (and there IS an average that everyone knows; just because it's not officially defined, doesn't mean it's not obvious to everyone) is the size of a, for example, work mouse.

There is also a portable/laptop mouse size (e.g. the M305, it was even specifically advertised for this purpose).

The M525 is almost the exact size of the M305.

There is no discussion here.
