The Good A sealed underside protects the sensor in the Logitech Couch Mouse M515 from lint and other obstructing debris, and its versatile HyperScroll wheel gives you page navigation mastery.

The Bad At $50, this mouse will feel expensive if all you want is basic cursor control.

The Bottom Line Not everyone needs a living-room mouse, but for those who do, the Logitech Couch Mouse M515 provides a well-thought-out option, and for a reasonable price.

With a few key design tweaks, Logitech has created a sensible living-room computing accessory with its Couch Mouse M515. The sealed-in sensor will remain free of obstructing dirt and hair, and grip detection technology provides insurance against unintended clicks. For $50, the M515 might feel like a luxury product compared with more affordable wireless mice, but it's also a less expensive option than some higher-end media mice. We recommend it to living-room-computing enthusiasts who don't already have a reliable input device.

The Couch Mouse M515 is smaller than a standard desktop mouse, but a little larger than a typical laptop mouse. That's probably a wise design decision by Logitech, in that a full-size mouse could feel cumbersome in the living room, but a smaller design might be easily lost.

A wireless mouse, the Couch Mouse M515 is also a member of Logitech's Unified Device family, which lets you use multiple devices from a single Micro-USB wireless receiver. Logitech offers a number of Unified keyboards that could also work on the same adapter used by the Couch Mouse, but none of them are small enough to qualify as living-room keyboards. Even if there are no obvious other products that would accompany the Couch Mouse and its Unified receiver, you will likely appreciate that the receiver is so small that it essentially disappears into most USB ports.
