    Not as good as it used to be

    I have owned an M510 mouse for many years. Mine was getting...gooey. The rubber sides were just about shot. I wanted another one just like it, I had gotten many great years of service out of it. So I bought a new one. Same model, same look and feel. That is the end of what was the same. My old mouse was snappy and fast to respond. I could make any change I wanted to the buttons and speed, plus acceleration, and they all worked. It ran Logitech Set Point software. This new mouse is not recognized by Set Point. It now says I have to download Logitech Options software. 150 megs for a mouse driver? are they kidding? So I uninstall Set Point and Install Options. Sure enough it see the mouse and allows me to change buttons. Tons of customization, but no acceleration setting. OK so I have to get used to losing the acceleration, maybe an update will put it back at some time. But then I notice all the customized buttons have lag in them. You cant just click the button and have it work. You have to wait for something to happen. I really thought the days of having wireless mouse lag were long over. Not true with this new software. The new Options software is absolute junk. Slow to respond, huge installation for a mouse, and it runs something like 15 services at startup. Needless to say this mouse was on it's way back to Best Buy. I uninstalled all the bloatware software that they call Options and reinstalled my old mouse with the newest version of Set Point. Back to normal. Fast response with custom buttons and acceleration. I cleaned my old mouse and repackaged this one for return. The next morning I needed a mouse on a laptop. I grabbed the new M510 and just plugged in the USB receiver. I did no customization at all, just a normal mouse. Guess what, it's fast and responsive. On a whim I install the Options software. Slow again, and any customization slows it down even further. I uninstalled the new software on the laptop and the mouse works great again. Just no customization. I have decided to keep the mouse on the laptop. I just need a mouse there, no custom buttons. If you just need a mouse without customized buttons, this one fits your hand well (assuming you are right handed) and works well with the Windows drivers. If you want customized buttons find something else. Logitech has ruined the driver software. It is huge and adds lag to any customization, plus you cant turn on acceleration of the pointer.

    Old Technology. Coarse scroll wheel

    I bought this Logitech M510 mouse and I don't like it so much. The store salesman said that he's had this same model for many years at his home and I think it is old technology. It uses two batteries whereas most modern mice use one. It has a coarse, rough scroll wheel whereas new mice have finer turning scroll wheels or wheels limited by friction. I wanted a traditional scroll wheel with detents in the wheel. A friend of mine bought a mouse with a smooth scroll wheel that is supposed to be held in position with friction when you leave it. I do not know what brand of mouse my friend had. But he demonstrated it to me: if he just brushed the mouse scroll wheel, the image on the monitor would move. Most modern Logitech mice now have a friction-control wheel and I had bad thoughts about just brushing the scroll wheel and having whatever I was viewing on the computer screen shift, so I wanted a traditional scroll wheel with detents. This Logitech M510 was like that. But now that I have it, I don't like how coarse the scroll heel moves. If I did not know any better (it is new) I would say that there is dirt in the wheel and that is why it is so rough to scroll. The last mouse I had, which had detents, was five years old and it had a much smoother scroll wheel than this Logitech M510. The Logitech M510 is designed to be "ergonomic." It has cushioned panels on the sides and a concave surface where your thumb is to rest. The problem is that to use this mouse they way it is designed, you have to hold it deep in the palm of your hand. That's when your thumb fits into the concave detail on the side. That's also where your thumb (if you are right handed) can manipulate the two auxiliary buttons. I have longer-than-average male fingers so when I hold the mouse that way (holding the mouse mostly in the palm of my hand) my fingertips are out beyond the left and right click buttons. I have to click the two main buttons with my entire finger, not just my fingertips as I am accustomed to. In the past I have held mice with my fingers only and my palm is way back behind the mouse. That worked for me. But that is not the best way to hold this Logitech M510 mouse. So the ergonomic "features" of this mouse actually make it more difficult and awkward for me to use. (But they may be just fine for you, given your style.) To get the auxiliary two buttons to work, you have to download this Logitech software called SetPopint from their website. That software is easy to download and to program the auxiliary two buttons. But it creates a folder called logishrd and puts it into your My Documents folder. So among your user folders of documents, is this stupid Logitech mouse folder. If you move it or delete, it comes back when you reboot your computer. That is really annoying. At least the communication with the plug-in receiver works well.

    I absolutely love it!!

    I actually purchased my M510 mouse 3-1/2 years ago and so far it is still going strong. I bought it with my laptop because I cannot stand to use the laptop touch pad. The mouse is big enough for most hands but still sleek enough to be portable. It is comfortable to use for those many hours of college homework/studying and I can see myself using this at work too. It has all the features I am looking for in a wireless mouse--comfortable & decent-sized fit, backward/forward side buttons, optional programmable scroll wheel buttons, on/off switch, and just overall reliability. For some reason I still have not gotten around to programing the side buttons on the scroll wheel (I blame busy college life). I have had many classmates and coworkers rave over how handy those buttons are, and they highly recommend programing either speaker volume or screen brightness to the scroll wheel. I will get around to using that feature eventually. My brother has the super small logitech that comes in many colors. I am not sure why he got that one because he has bigger hands and long fingers. As a result, he very rarely uses his mouse because it is too small. Sometimes he asks to borrow my M510 mouse (which can be tricky if I need to do a school project also) and he absolutely loves how it fits in his hand. I am planning to get him his own M510 for his birthday. The only downside is that I wish this mouse came in more colors--not a huge deal breaker for me, but some personalized options would still be nice. Perhaps logitech could make a removable cover plate decoration; I would love to bedeck my mouse with Zelda, Star Trek, or even the Avengers. Overall, this reliable mouse has a lot of features for $20 despite it coming in only three colors.

    Best Mouse EVER!

    I normally don’t write reviews of products, I just rate them, but this mouse I HAD to do a write up for. I never thought a mouse could make this much of an impact. First let me say that if you are getting this mouse for use with any Microsoft product (i.e. word, outlook, excel, etc) then you need to configure the buttons separately for those applications. Out of the box I set up my mouse to use the customizable buttons to copy and paste. It worked like a dream with everything except Microsoft Apps. But then I discovered the menu to customize the buttons for those apps and everything was good to go. Additionally I discovered probably the most impressive feature of this mouse: Application Switcher! For you Mac users out there this is basically the equivalent of Expose. For those of you that don’t know what this is, basically you just press a button on your mouse and it shrinks all the open windows you have and presents them all on the screen, and then you just click on the window you need and it brings it to the forefront. Amazing time saver! Windows 7 tried to do something similar with the “Snap” feature … but this completely blows that out of the water. If you are in need of a mouse with customizable buttons and GREAT features … look no further. Thanks Logitech!

    Not worth the money... Really... I'm telling you!

    It works, but that's it's only redeeming quality. Not worth the premium in price over a $7.99 cordless mouse. Using it is a real chore. I'm surprised at how clunky and unenjoyable this is to use considering this is a Logitech product. It's heavy, difficult to move (sticky) get's stuck then shoots forward. I've cleaned both bottom of house and tabletop, and it makes little difference. I much prefer trackball mice because they stay in one place and don't need to be moved too much. On the package, there is a great whoop de doo about what it can do. Setting it is impossible. I gave up. The instructions are horrible and only serve to muddy an already incomprehensible design. Why did I buy it? I didn't. I was in the hospital, and my wonderful wife who knows nothing about things like this, volunteered to pick up a mouse up for me as my trackpad was hard to use. Ironically, the trackpad worked better than this mouse. If I weren't over the two week return period because I'm in the hospital, I would return it. Not worth the money.

    Good mouse... but not perfect

    I've been using a Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0 for years but when the office upgraded to new desks with a glass top on them, my Intellimouse had difficulties tracking correctly. Got this wireless mouse based on other reviews and am pleasantly surprised -- most of my experiences with wireless mice were early on and they had a lot of "stutters" or "connection drop-outs" but I haven't noticed any with this Logitech mouse. It has none of the difficulties that my Intellimouse had tracking on my glass-top desk and it feels okay in my hand -- it feels a bit more cramped than the Intellimouse as my hands are a little on the large side, so my hand doesn't "rest" on the Logitech quite as easily as on the large Intellimouse. The scroll wheel also feels more "clunky" than the very smooth wheel on the Intellimouse, as does the "click" of the scroll wheel, and the forward/back buttons on the thumb-side feel just a tad off location-wise. Still, these are all pretty minor complaints considering it actually WORKS on my desk and the Intellimouse does not. The side-scroll (tilt wheel) functionality is quite neat, though my I had to install the SetPoint software on Logitech's website as the default Win7 drivers recognized the tilt-wheel and set it to "scroll 3 lines" per tilt, but nothing would actually happen when I tried tilting the wheel. After installation of the SetPoint software, though, it works as it should. And having one less wire to run behind my desk is really nice! I have to say, I really like the blue color version of this mouse better. This silver version looks okay but seems rather plain to me -- the blue stands out nicely while still being somewhat elegant. Overall, happy with my purchase for this price, though I might end up trying out a larger Logitech wireless mouse in the future. Oh, and the unifying receiver sounds like it is great if you have other Logitech wireless devices like a keyboard, but I do not so I cannot comment on it in practice.

    Like most of the other reviewers, I'm exceedingly happy with this mouse. Over the past few years, I've been happily using Logitech's MX Anywhere mouse, but they have an issue -- they just wear out over time, and start malfunctioning. Logitech actually has a "new, improved" version, which I definitely don't like as much as the older version. I went through that routine the last time I needed to replace my malfunctioning MX Anywhere mouse, and I managed to find an older version, then returned the newer one. But now that mouse is malfunctioning, so what do I do now? I tried a different mouse I didn't quite like, so I went looking again, and found the M510 Advanced. Oh, this one feels "just right" in my hand. And it actually works with a little "personal problem" I've always had -- I've always tended to rest my "right mouse finger" on the right button, which tends to lead to unwanted right mouse clicks. Well, look at the design of this mouse -- instead of "the buttons going all the way out to the edges" of the mouse, they are "inset" with a bit of a frame around them. PERFECT! I can rest my finger on the right button, with my finger also on that "frame" around it, and I don't launch any inadvertent right clicks. So, it works fine, it works with Logitech's "Unifying" hardware and software, and thus with my Logitech wireless keyboard, it feels fine in my hand, and it works with my lazy right mouse finger. Perfect! Actually, writing this review really clarified something for me: Heck, I ought to buy a bunch of these things while they're available, and hopefully that'll keep me mouse-happy for a decade or two in the future. This one is JUST RIGHT.
