Sydney, Australia - July 26th, 2011 '” Today, Logitech announced the imminent Australian availability of the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M325, featuring a precision scroll wheel with up to four times as many ratchets as a standard scroll wheel for smoother scrolling. The Logitech Wireless Mouse M325 is based on the contoured shape of the best-selling Logitech® Wireless Mouse M305.'Our newest mouse is all about making surfing the Web easier,' said George Saad, Director at Logitech Australia. 'With our newest scroll wheel design, we've brought another new innovation to market, one that leverages a micro-ratchet, to make scrolling Facebook® shopping on Amazon® or reading an online newspaper easier.'
Most standard mice have a scroll wheel with 18 to 24 ratchets. Each ratchet corresponds to about one line of scrolling. Quickly scrolling down a page, skipping from line to line, moving from one ratchet to another, the on-screen motion will appear choppy.
This choppiness can be reduced by moving in smaller increments. Logitech's precision scroll wheel contains 72 tiny, rugged ratchets. As a result, the ratchets are small enough so the wheel spins smoothly thereby creating the precise control needed for websites, spreadsheets, slideshows and other presentations.
A true wheel for the Web, the precision scroll wheel not only makes surfing smoother; when tilted to the right or left, it can also move the user backward and forward through webpages.
The Logitech Wireless Mouse M325 also includes Logitech Advanced Optical Tracking, so there is no need for a laptop trackpad.
The M325 has up to 18 months of battery life and a three year limited hardware warranty, meaning less time spent fiddling round to change batteries. The Logitech Unifying receiver can stay in a laptop and be forgotten about, as up to 6 devices can be added to it.
The Wireless Mouse M325 works with Windows® XP, Windows Vista® and Windows® 7, as well as Mac OS® X 10.5 or later and Linux® kernel 2.6.

The Logitech Wireless Mouse M325 is expected to available in early August for a suggested retail price of AU$59.95 and is expected to be available at the following retailers: Australia Post, Big W, Bing Lee, Dick Smith, Myer, Officeworks, The Good Guys, WOW
