Product Snapshot

Overview

The Satechi M1 Wireless Mouse was announced in early 2019 as an entry-level offering designed for office use. The wireless mouse has a maximum operating resolution of 3200 DPI and is powered by a rechargeable 450mAh built-in lithium-ion battery that keeps it running for up to 45 days. It has three buttons including a clickable scroll wheel and a battery power level indicator. Its aluminum finish gives it a sleek look, but unfortunately, the M1 doesn’t have companion software or any programmable buttons, but this is pretty common among the best computer mice around.

The M1 relies on an Optical tracker for motion sensing and Bluetooth connectivity for device linking. It is also compatible with both Windows and Mac systems and has a wireless range of 32 ft. Its modern, ergonomic design is best suited for a palm grip, and its ambidextrous design makes it suitable for all users.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Satechi M1 Bluetooth Wireless mouse provides a straightforward installation process and good, compact build quality, making it great for general office work. It also has a great rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and tests confirm it holds a charge for up to 45 days.

However, design-wise, the scroll wheel lacks smoothness, and its small shape can be inadequate for those with large hands. The mouse also lacks programmability and companion software, meaning none of the buttons can be customized. Despite its issues, the Satechi M1 Bluetooth Wireless mouse is a great, inexpensive option for iPad users looking for a mouse to take on the go, but those looking for a mouse for heavy-office work may want to look elsewhere.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Nice design and good build quality
  • Inexpensive
  • High-quality lithium-ion battery lasts 45 days
  • Ambidextrous design
  • Easy installation

Reason to Avoid

  • Uncomfortable for large hands
  • May not work well on shiny surfaces
  • Scroll wheel issues (e.g., not smooth movement)
  • No programmable buttons
  • Clicking sound can be annoying

The fact that the Satechi M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse is cable-free makes it more convenient to use compared to the Satechi C1 USB-C Wired Mouse. Besides this, the two are also different in that the M1 has a much higher operating resolution of 3200 DPI compared to the C1, which has a resolution of 1200 DPI. Lastly, the M1, weighing 3.27 ounces, is a bit heavier than the Satechi C1, which weighs 2.87 ounces.

The Satechi M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse has a higher 3200 DPI than the Zeru Rechargeable Wireless Mouse, which has a 1600 DPI.

The Satechi M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse has a low-profile design, so it is ideal for people who prefer a claw or fingertip grip. On the other hand, the Seenda Wireless Mouse has a slightly lifted design, which would be ideal for users who wish to stick to a palm grip. Also, the Seenda Wireless Mouse offers a broader variety of colors to choose from compared to the Satechi M1 Mouse. We’ve delved deeper into the Seenda Mouse in our Seenda 2.4G Wireless Mouse review, so feel free to take a look if you’re interested.
