    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.

    Decent mouse

    This mouse is an all around good mouse to use for the average computer user, and for gamers who perhaps don't have the need for a billion buttons like so many mice have these days. I think some of the pluses of this mouse is that the batteries last forever I use lithium batteries and I haven't had to change a pair in over four months and that is with heavy every day use. It looks kind of cheep but it is a solid light mouse that scrolls smooth and fast on any surface and the grips on the side are nice and smooth and don't attract grime and dirt as easily as some other grips. The only real cons that I can think of is that its to small for me and I don't really have a large hand either and that the design could be better, the left side where your thumb goes is nearly perfect with comfort and button position but the right side is just like the left side and causes an uncomftorble concave feeling so for people who like to palm the mouse like I do it isn't a very good designed mouse in that retrospect. Really, I guess i'm overall really happy with the mouse I didn't buy it ironicly I got it for free when I got my new ergonomic keyboard and never planned on using it till my kingston comfort style mouse died on me, ever since then i've been using this one for over a year now and just haven't been able to make up my mind on what new mouse I want yet. So over all i'll say that this is a very decent mouse for a decent price if your a person with small hands and don't palm your hand to mice then this is very likely a good mouse for you if you are a very heavy mouse user playing MMO's and other video games I really wouldn't recommend getting this mouse as there is better out there that is better designed for like 20 bucks more.

    Not for large hands

    Posted

    I saw the M510 mouse on sale recently and decided to pick it up. Plug and play: The mouse worked perfectly after plugging it into my windows 7 desktop. Interface: I had to download the software for the mouse as it did not come with a disc. The software lets you change the mouse speed, acceleration, assign buttons, etc.. Ergonomics: I'm going from a larger mouse - the Logitech MX518 (same shape as Logitech G400) which is a wired mouse. I was immediately disappointed in the feel of the M510 in comparison which is made for a smaller hand. Both my ring and pinky fingers touch the desk now w/o support whereas the shape of the MX518 comfortably fit my hand and allowed my ring finger to rest on top of the mouse and my pink hug the side with a little bit of support. The side buttons on the M510 are kinda awkward and don't really have the convenient positioning that the MX518 had. Sadly I'm going to return the mouse and go back to a wired setup unless I can find a suitable wireless replacement in a larger size. For reference I wear around a size L in gloves or maybe slightly larger. On a side note - I couldn't really configure the software to make it feel like my old mouse but maybe I was imagining the awkwardness - hard to tell. I played around with a lot of the settings.

    Good all-around mouse

    Overall, the lifespan of this mouse seems to be great. The case and all buttons are very rigid and seem to be able to withstand moderate abuse. I have already dropped this mouse on accident a couple of times with absolutely no physical or electronic malfunctions. Battery life so far seems to live up to the expectations on the box. In the time I have used this mouse, I would have probably had to replace batteries in my old Microsoft mouse 2-3 times. The design of the mouse is very intuitive. The buttons are well placed for easy use, though it could be argued this mouse could use a few more. Still, it is not a "gaming" mouse per say, so this can be expected. It has, however, really helped me in my games, from switching weapons to steering in vehicles, the placement of the buttons facilitates better gaming performance. As a few last words, it was easy to connect to my computer, instructions were well written in case one would come upon any issues. Overall, this is an excellent addition for any computer.

    Off-centered sensor :(

    + Tracking is good and doesn't skip + Range is about 2 rooms away ( my limit ) + Feels good in my hand ( i have long spider fingers). I'm always a fan of the ambidextrous form factor. + Non-sensitive side buttons that don't get easily pressed. - Rubber side grips are a bit stickier than other logitechs, but I got use to it. I like to be able to stroke the side of my mouse without it gripping too much. Personal thing. :) - Off-centered sensor. It is not bad as the M705, but the effects are still noticeable in this mouse. People that pivot the mouse a lot will notice it. During some applications and games, I have to switch to my old mouse (games such as Bejeweled, First-person shooters). It works okay in League of Legends if I'm just playing casually. Also, I'm the type of person who likes to swipe fast to icons with minimal adjustment. I find that this mouse adds a bit of extra movement, but it doesn't bother me much. Overall, it's performance is about less than, equal to average for gaming (i know its not intended for gaming), but really good for casual use since its wireless, feels good, and has smooth tracking.

    Wireless mouse works well, even with KVM switch

    Was tired of mouse cord being tight because of routing over pull-out tray and through back of desk. Wanted to try a wirelss mouse but was concerned with my use of a KVM switch. Was involved in beta testing of AmigaOS 4.2 - yes AmigaOS is still in use and development - and so hooked my dual boot Linux/Windows 8.1 computer to my AmigaOne X 1000 via a KVM switch. To my delight worked right from that start. It is smooth in use - love my 3M microfiber mouse pad - and is sensitive to small movements. Only problem is that occasionally it seems to not quite align the signal and momentarily does not move the cursor. Happens very infrequently and quickly recovers. Also could be a little larger to better fit my grip. Highly recommended as good value for the money. Don't know yet about battery life.

    Good mouse for me and I hope for everybody.The logitech m510 is an excellent mouse for folks with big hands, has a great ergonomic feel and quality buttons etc. It is my favorite wireless mouse to date, but there is a flaw to look out for. The housing of the laser lens is very poorly designed, allowing the module to move rather freely in its socket. Due to stiffness and placement of the connecting wire inside, this will overtime allow the eye to move into an angle where your cursor reception becomes quite impaired. Fixing it is simple, open the mouse, and place some object thats about 1/8 of an inch thick between the connecting wire and the plastic to put pressure on it thus keeping the eye housing in its proper, parallel position. This should get your mouse working perfectly without any issues, I used a small piece of card board folded and stuck inside and it worked like a charm. Otherwise, I give this mouse a 10, have had it a year and still on the original batteries and I use it all day and rarely remember to turn it off when not using it.

    I've owned this mouse for several months. It's held up well. The battery life is excellent. It's a little large, but fits well in my hand. My only gripe is that the buttons one the side, while very convenient, are prone to unintentional clicks when I pick up the mouse. The default settings for the side buttons map to the forward and back buttons in the browser. This has caused me a little frustration when filling out some forms online because I'll finish typing out something long (like this review), then accidentally bump the side button on the mouse which hits the browser's back button - wiping out several minutes worth of typing. You can change this setting, though, so it's not a big deal. I'd buy this again.

    Actually bought somewhere else because sale price was better. But mouse is nice. Full size ad fits hand well. Optical mouse but without bright blinding red laser light underneath which is nice when moving from meeting to meeting at work. Full size mouse is a little heavy than others I've used (2 AA batter instead of 1 part of that). Side buttons work as Forward / Back on webpages, but not Excel. Online support shows you how to change it to work for Excel but becomes key stroke ctrl+pgeup / dwn which makes you change windows / tabs, but then internet site forward/back disabled. I use excel function more so I kept it programmed as keystroke but would have been nice to have it work as it advertises on the box without the work around. 4 starts overall. Negatives are the side buttons and weight but would recommend.

    Best thing I've seen that's not a gaming mouse

    I've had the mouse at least a couple of years. Pros: Awesome grip Back and Forward buttons that you cannot live without after using Being able to scroll left and right not just up and down Very long battery life Great usb connection 0 problem ever with that, and it's tiny! Ability to turn it off and on without unplugging it It tells you when it's low on battery Cons: Can be louder than an average mouse.. Especially when you mindlessly press the back and forward buttons When you press down the scroll bar it's supposed to open a link in a new tab.. The longer I've had it, the least responsive the scroll bar gets to being pressed down It needs a perfect surface to work on.. I have to buy a new mouse pad every couple of months because it wears it down and just starts moving very slowly.

    Decent Mouse

    Summary: All in all a good mouse for general use with laptops, a bit less so for desktops. Detailed: My biggest problem with this mouse is the signal strength of the wireless transmitter. With the USB reciever in the back of my desktop PC under my desk and the mouse on top, the desk's surface (just about 1.5-2 in. of wood) was enough to interrupt the signal once I pulled my chair up close. I was able to get around the problem with a USB extension to move the reciever to behind my monitor where it is still out of the way but has an easier time getting the signal, after that the mouse is pretty good, little to no lag, no problems with the buttons, it's survived a few knocks when I was angry with no apparent damage.

    This was a replacment for a dead, previous (also Logitech) mouse that had served us well for years. New mouse is just fine, I doubt we will ever do much fiddling with the various settings, we just want it to eat cheese and that's about it. Seriously it is fine; we do find it is slightly bigger than it's ancestor, which is a small problem for my wife's desktop setup, since there is limited height between the pull out keyboard surface and the shelf above it, on her particular computer desk, but she is adjusting. The slightly larger size does make it feel a little more solid in your hand. i noticed, of course, when in the store, that mice are on the way out--perhaps touch screens are killing them off....

    I bought this mouse after returning the Logitech - Performance Mouse MX - Black That mouse squeaked at every click on the left button right out of the package. So I read some more reviews and this one did pretty well, I must say I am content with it, it's not as nice in the hand as the Performance Mouse MX for a person with large hands but it has a solid build the rubbery / leather grip on the side adds a little class to a small mouse. Track very well and most importantly it does not squeak at every click like the mouse that cost $25 more. I really wish there was some other mouse manufacturers out there besides Logitech, Microsoft and the all the off brand stuff, I know there are gaming mice that do much more but not all of us need all that.

    I bought this mouse for my home office, and it works great overall. The only complaint I have, and it's a small one, is when used with Google Chrome, the scrolling wheel is not very smooth or accurate. Google Chrome actually has an add-on that tries to fix this issue, but I still found it a bit "jerky". To compensate, I just "grab" the scroll bar with the mouse pointer and move it myself instead of using the mouse wheel. Overall it's still a really good product. Very comfortable, accurate on a variety of surfaces, 2 buttons on the side that work great for forward/back while Web browsing, and solid battery life. I definitely recommend it over much more expensive wireless mice, especially if you're using it in an office.

    Truly plug and play and could not be easier to set up (Windows 10). I especially appreciate the very low profile of the USB dongle. Right-click is very firm compared to left-click. Not sure if that is intentional but I actually like that button being more...deliberate. It is larger than similar current Logitech models but I wouldn't recommend it if you really want a large mouse. I use a Logitech G500 for a gaming setup and this is *just* a bit smaller than that. Works perfectly but if I was using it all the time it would probably be too small. Still a great wireless mouse though. Input/lag time is fine for day to day desktop/productivity usage.

    I now own three of these. This is the perfect mouse for me both functionally and ergonomically. I use computers (laptops and desktops) at work and at home. I travel with my laptop and use it at multiple locations at work with and without docking stations. I hate having to make my mouse mobile as well. I keep a mouse at each location and with this model I can associate multiple mice using only one mini unifying USB receiver. Also, I used to get what I call severe mouse hand pain. With this mouse and a good wrist support mouse pad there is no more pain.

    Programming this mouse is not as good as the original M510 laser mouse, which used SetPoint instead of Logitech Options. SetPoint works well with all versions of Windows, but Logitech Options won't program the mouse to work for Winamp on Windows 10, where it does work on Windows 8.1. I have been unable to get help from Logitech Support. Also, when opening Logitech Options, I get a notice to update. When I click "Update Now", the program opens, but does not update. This happens on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. If you just want a basic mouse, it's great, but forget programming it, or getting support.

    Compatible with a wide range of computers - I have one at my office for my Windows machine and another one at home for my Mac. Have had the office mouse for years. Batteries last forever. When my multi-button mouse at home (non-laptop) stopped right-clicking, I opted for this as the replacement because it was priced very reasonably while giving the functionality I needed. I only wish it was actually a bit bigger and more ergonomically formed. The closest mouse I could find in the store comparable to my old one shape-wise was $100. Way overkill for my home computer that just doesn't get used as much as it used to. However, this one is definitely better than the laptop sized mini-mice.

    I was looking for a 4-button full size mouse to replace a Microsoft mouse where the scrolling wheel was getting hard to turn, no matter how much WD-40 I put in it. This one looked like it would do the trick. I didn't need to download any software, Windows 7 recognized and installed the drivers and it started working right away. Scroll wheel is good but gives you that "click click click" feedback. I was looking for a smoother scroll with no feedback but they were out of the Microsoft ones that have that feature. Also the side "back" button gets in the way of your thumb when your finger is at rest on the side. You might accidentally press it.
