    GOOD, But NOT Great - As Bluetooth Mice Go ...

    PREFACE : I swear by Logitech "computer" accessories! - ALL of my "mice" (wireless AND cord-connected), and all my desktop speaker systems are Logitech products. ... Logitech designs, manufactures AND supports truly high-quality accessories, and they sell them at REALLY reasonable prices through many highly reputable sources! #1.) MY "COUCHED" COMPLAINTS : This Logitech - M557 Bluetooth Mouse IS NOT a really solidly constructed mouse. - I DON'T THINK THIS MOUSE WILL WITHSTAND BEING DROPPED FROM A DESK-HEIGHT SURFACE ONTO A HARD FLOOR SURFACE MANY MORE TIMES THAN ONCE. - My first concern about this mouse's "impact resistance" weaknesses is the fact that it does not have a battery "door" like ALL my other Logitech Wi-Fi mice. ... This mouse has a battery retaining cradle piece that frames the whole bottom half of the mouse's body. It's NOT attached very well to begin with, and when you add the weight of the batteries, it feels like it will just pop off upon impact: The batteries will be ejected and you will have to put the whole mouse back together again, before re-connecting it with your device. If this "cradle" breaks or snaps it will probably be repairable with glue, but it may never hold in place (albeit loosely) quite "right" again. - THIS MOUSE WILL PROBABLY NEVER PERFORM WELL AS A "TRAVEL"/"ROAD WARRIOR" MOUSE: IT'S JUST TOO INHERENTLY FRAGILE TO TRAVEL WELL AT ALL. My second "issue" with this mouse may be (mostly) "my problem", but I bet that I'm not the only person who experiences this particular issue when using this particular mouse. ... I rest my middle finger on a mouse's right /"secondary" (e.g., left for "lefties") button all the time. This has NEVER been a problem for me when using ANY OTHER Logitech mouse. HOWEVER, on this Logitech M557, its buttons are so sensitive (they require SO MUCH LESS pressure to activate their contacts) that my middle finger is constantly "right clicking" the right button whenever (or just slightly after) I click the left/"primary" button. I'm really finding it difficult to train my middle finger to NOT rest on the right button AT ALL. - IN SHORT, the buttons on this mouse are not for people who are at all "ham-handed". I feel that someone with the delicate touch of a neurosurgeon is going to be far more able to use this mouse adeptly. ... IF YOU CAN, I suggest getting your hands on this mouse before you buy it. You may already be far more used to light and sensitive mice than I was when I bought this mouse "sight unseen". #2.) AND NOW FOR MY COMPLIMENTS : As I said in my preface: I swear by Logitech "computer" accessories! - This mouse (even considering my previous complaints) IS REALLY aesthetically pleasing, both visually and in its tactility. The feel of this mouse in my "smallish" hand is as good as (and maybe even a little better than) any of the other Logitech ("mini" and medium sized) mice I have ever owned/used. Its width, shape and general profile just feels good in my hand, even if its lower (less rounded, less bulbous) height may be contributing to my "middle finger resting problem" previously mentioned. I love the Windows "Start"(-Menu) button, it's really a handy time (and motion) -saver. ... It was VERY easy to "pair" with my Lenovo G50-45 laptop AND it always connects to this computer really quickly upon start up. After all, the REAL reason I got a Bluetooth mouse was to avoid taking up ANY of the three USB ports on this laptop with a Wi-Fi mouse receiver dongle (I have A LOT of peripheral USB devices): To that end I have certainly accomplished what I was setting out to do by purchasing this Logitech M557 Bluetooth Mouse. Overall, it's a GOOD bluetooth mouse for use at home, or in the office, just as long as you can keep from knocking it off your desk (or other work surfaces) on to the floor. However, if you spend a lot of time using your laptop/netbook/tablet in airplanes, on trains, in airports, hotels or other strange and/or uncomfortable "working" spaces; JUST GET A SEPARATE, MORE "STURDY" BLUETOOTH "TRAVEL" MOUSE (other than the Logitech M557) TO KEEP READY TO GO IN YOUR DEVICE'S "E.V.A." CASE, AND LEAVE THE M557 AT HOME.

    This Logitech bluetooth mouse has worked fairly well in the time I have had it. It is a little bigger than the mouse I was using, but it is still easy enough to control. Logitech advertises a year's battery use but I am still a long way from finding out if that is accurate. One complaint that I had read and do agree with is that it takes a bit for the mouse to become active, especially if you turn it off when you leave your computer (which I did.) Wanted the bluetooth to use with my laptop so I did not have to have the USB dongle occupying one of the USB ports and it is nice for that. I have had a couple occurances of the top cover popping off if the mouse were to be dropped but so far it does go back together. The price was right on this as I purchased it one day when Best Buy had it as a daily special. Bluetooth mice can be very expensive and the deal got it to a price point I was willing to accept. Overall I have been happy with the mouse and its performance.

    I bought it because I wanted a bluetooth mouse for my macbook pro, and it gets the job done. It is a little heavy compared with the other mouses and it is because it uses two AA batteries, although it says it last one year, so let see. I take one star because of the two batteries, heavy, and it feels not so "ergonomic", when you wake up the computer it takes between two and three seconds to be active, and the wheel it doesn't have the "clicking" feel, the best thing is that it doesn't have that annoying "clicking" sound the other mouses have. Still a great buy instead of the "Magic Mouse" for 79 dlls.

    I bought the bluetooth mouse so I would not have a mini USB sticking out of my computer that could get caught on my computer case, Ireally like it and it works almost all of the time. I have a problem with Rosetta Stone as, when I'm in the program, it regularly freezes part of the time then will work again as I move on using my finger mouse on the computer (not sure if its the mouse or the program but I don't have the problem with a mini=USB). Very occasionally this may also happen with other applications, but not enough to be a problem.

    One of the best lightweight bluetooth mouse

    this bluetooth mouse is light-weight, well designed and has 3 customizable buttons. The bluetooth is easy to connect, and unless wireless mouse, it doesn't need a receiver. I use Surface Pro, it only has one USB port, so Bluetooth is a must for me. the mouse doesn't feel small, and it looks sleek. The clicks are responsive, and the customizable button give you great options. The only thing that made it 4 stars is that it is not using Bluetrack tech, something that is very accurate and can be used on many different surface.

    I purchased this recently because the trackpad on my new Dell laptop is very sensitive and sometimes feels like trying to push a shopping cart with one bad front wheel (otherwise the laptop's great, though). It linked up quickly and is making it much easier to use my laptop. There is an on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse that will extend the life of your batteries. The packaging states the mouse gets about a year on a set of batteries, which I appreciate.

    Good Bluetooth Option

    Since I've been satisfied with other Logitech products, I decided to try this Logitech mouse because the battery-life in my Microsoft 5000 was not good. It looks nice and functions well. I have found a Bluetooth mouse is not as reliable for me as a 2.4 GHz but it may be due to the BT Dongle Adapter (my laptop does not have Bluetooth built-in). I still occasionally lose connection with the new Logitech and have to reset the adapter, but if I switch back to a 2.4 I lose another USB port.

    Paired it on both my personal Dell XPS 13 and an HP Elitebook from work and it works like a charm without giving up another USB slot. The only gripe I have would be the fact that once in a while, after leaving unattended for a few minutes, the connection will be lost which I understand to conserve power but it takes a while to link back. I personally think that it's just bluetooth thing so I'm still happy with it. The was the only reason I gave it a 4 star!

    i purchased this mouse to pair with my first macbook pro. I'm a big fan of windows 7 and finally forced myself to buy a mac. i'm not a fan of the macbook at all, but this mouse has made my experience with macbook more tolerable. it was easy to pair, and i have paired it to two devices (macbook pro and samsung laptop using a logitech unify dongle) battery life has been good, i've charge it about once a month.

    I really like this medium sized mouse. It is a more of a flat mouse than arched and definitely appeals to me more so than others. Sensitivity is really good and can be used on almost any surface. The only drawback is that the Bluetooth connection gets cut sometimes due to being in close proximity to my phone which can be annoying. Otherwise great!

    All in all, I think this is a pretty good companion mouse for the mobile user. You're probably not going to want to use it daily but only at times when it is required. You can throw the mouse in your travel bag and have a peace of mind that you won't have to use that bad touch pad on your laptop.

    Nice compact, connects easily with Bluetooth compatible laptop. Use it for on the road so I don't have an extra wireless part protruding from my laptop. Have used it for a month now. Power switch turns on/off on the mouse itself, have had no problems with it quickly responding on the screen...

    Paired up and connected this Bluetooth mouse to my HP and ASUS laptops without a problem. No USB connector needed. A minor complaint is there's no information about getting the optional mouse software from the Logitech website. That software provides more options than the default mouse software in Windows.

    My first Bluetooth mouse, and i bought it because Surface Pro only offers one USB input. The size of the mouse is good for travel while not being too small. The product feels premium, and the 4-way scrolling tilt wheel, 3 customizable buttons and software setting makes it a compelling choice.

    I bought this so I could free up a USB port, plus not have to deal with a dongle. It was easy to set-up, but occasionally loses connection (which is why I didn't give it 5 stars). I simply turn it off and back on, and it will reconnect immediately. For the price, this is an excellent buy.

    I am using this mouse for my macbook pro and I am very happy with it. I did not want to pay the price for the magic mouse. The design is very neat however it's not the most comfortable mouse in the world. It easily gets connected to the macbook every time I turn it on.

    Looking something that works with my windows machine I use at home. Apple mouse I have at work is pretty slim and works really well. This was advised to me by bestbuy geek squad team as something similar. Till now it works well and like the recommendation.

    Very nice and responsive. Feels great in my hand. The track wheel is a tad bulky compared to the slimmer ones I've used but you get used to it after a while. A good bluetooth mouse. Haven't lost connection at all using it and the battery life is decent as well.

    Needed a new Bluetooth mouse and found this one at Best Buy on sale. Bluetooth connects quickly. It tracks perfectly and the left-right buttons are crisp. However the scroll wheel click is weak. I'd like a little more feel there when scrolling up and down.

    It's everything the description says. Works great, my only problem is... is I would like a smaller mouse for traveling.. They said this is a travel mouse, and can certainly be but it's not anywhere near the size mouse it's replacing.
