Let G be a finite group. Let \(\psi ^{\prime }(G)= \prod _{g \in G} o(g), \) where o(g) denotes the order of \(g \in G\). In this paper, we prove that \(\mathrm{PSL}(2, 7)\) and \(\mathrm{PSL}(2, 11)\) are uniquely determined by their product of element orders. Furthermore, we prove that \(\mathrm{PSL}(2, 5)\) and \(\mathrm{PSL}(2, 13)\) are uniquely determined by their orders and the product of element orders.
