    Good mouse, good concept.

    I actually returned this mouse because I found it a bit "bulkier" than I preferred, but that's just "personal preference" rather than any knock against the mouse. But I can certainly write a review and put this mouse into perspective: Over the years, I have certainly come to prefer Logitech's mice. Frankly, my favorite mouse for many years has been its "MX Anywhere" mouse, a rather spendy mouse that has one slight problem: It just plain wears out over time, and starts malfunctioning just enough to make life miserable. And actually, Logitech has come out with a "new, improved" version of that mouse, which I tried and definitely didn't like as much as the older one. I was able to find one of the older ones the last time I needed a replacement, but that option is long gone by now. So, I thought I'd give this one a try. It's certainly not a bad mouse in any way, and it has the novel feature that allows you to use it with three different computers over Bluetooth. Though, I have to say that I usually use my notebook computers "along with my desktop computer" -- my normal usage means that I really do need a different mouse for each computer. Otherwise, I suppose this feature has got to be worthwhile to a lot of other folks. I went through an interesting little setup routine when I installed this mouse on my desktop computer: It's "Bluetooth," and my computer doesn't have Bluetooth. But, since it showed that it comes with a dongle that has a Bluetooth logo on it, I figured I could indeed install it on my desktop computer. Well, surprise number 1 came when I went looking for the dongle -- the package just shows a PICTURE of it, and in fact it's contained within the mouse, under the slider you have to pull out to change the battery. This is one of those things that the "pictures-only" instructions could have clarified in a couple of seconds, by using just a handful of words. But no. Surprise #2 came when I plugged the dongle into my computer -- I got an "Oh, no, you can only use one dongle at a time." I still had my old dongle plugged into the computer, because I also use a Logitech wireless keyboard. In the end, this is all part of Logitech's "Unifying" hardware and software, and what I finally comprehended was that all of those "Unifying" dongles actually HAVE BLUETOOTH -- I didn't need to use the new dongle at all, as my old one provided the Bluetooth connection I needed. Ultimately, though, I wasn't quite satisfied with the feel of the mouse, and I wound up returning it. Not only was it a bit bulkier than I preferred, but the buttons weren't quite stiff enough to deal with a little personal issue I've always had: I always tend to rest my "right mouse finger" on the right-side button, which often leads to unintended right mouse clicks. Like a lot of mice these days, this has "nothing but buttons" all the way to the edges, and the buttons weren't otherwise stiff enough to keep away the inadvertent right-clicks. In the end, I found a different Logitech mouse -- the M10 Advanced -- which not only felt better in my hand, but also has the buttons "inset" inside an outer shell, which really allows me to rest my finger without activating unintended right clicks. So, that one was "just right," instead of this one. So, that's my story. This is a fine mouse, but I prefer the M510.

    My old trusty Logitech v270 bluetooth mouse died and I was desperate for a replacement. Optical vs laser doesn't really matter to me, though I do like that the laser works better on multiple surfaces (such as glass) so it gives me flexibility when I travel. Sure there are much cheaper mice, but I got this one on sale so I figured I'd try something fancy, and I'm absolutely delighted with the custom buttons that I didn't think I'd ever use. Just download and install the "Logitech Options" program, and customizing the buttons is as simple as choosing from a drag and drop list. I use this with a Macbook Pro, and I love having dedicated buttons to go backwards/fowards for web browsing, and i programed the other buttons to clear the desktop and mission control (see all open windows at once). NOTE A few things to note: when I first opened the Logitech Options app to customize the mouse buttons, I was confused about the "middle button" which looked like it was between the left and right mouse buttons in the graphic. I foolishly tried clicking both buttons at once, but then realized the button is the scroll wheel. Just press it in like any other button. DUH. The other button I was confused about, yet felt less silly over, was the one on the left side of the mouse where your thumb would be if you were holding it with your right hand. There's actually a little button hidden in the body of that little ergonomic curve, which you'll quickly notice when you press it in. It has a nice touch so you can tell when you press it, and I haven't had any issues accidentally pressing it. BLUETOOTH NOTE I wasted a bunch of time trying to figure out why this bluetooth mouse wouldn't sync up with my laptop or even be recognized. Turns out, this uses Smart Bluetooth, which I guess is a newer version of the tech, and is incompatible with the bluetooth in my old 2010 MacBook Pro. Considering my laptop's 6 years old now, I guess that's fair, being that's a lifetime in tech years. Fortunately they include a unifying receiver which works very well and has a little slot to hide inside the mouse when not in use or traveling. My only knock on this mouse is that I can't use it with a bluetooth connection like I was hoping to, but that's cause I have an old computer. Other than that, it's a great mouse and I really enjoy the custom buttons which I use way more frequently than I thought I would.

    Nice Mouse for the Price

    Logitech products have been a choice for many years. Many to most have held up over the years and some not so much. This mouse replaces an M500 when the right-click failed. This mouse was chosen mainly for its larger size and replaceable batteries. I do not like rechargeable batteries especially when not replaceable along with shorter life cycles between charges. This mouse boasts a 2 year battery life which is consistent with previous Logitech mice purchased and this is for a single AA battery. This mouse has a comfortable weight and size better suited for my usage. It has a multi-device feature which I probably will never use but a nice feature if this is important to you. It has a scroll lock which is typically not used in my case. I prefer the free wheel scrolling and it really glides. The mouse clicks are accurate. The right-click has a different sound to it than the left. The right seems a little louder. The right and left click button are rather large and easily pressed. There are two buttons for the right and left click whereas on the previous model used it had a solid button for both right and left click. It does have an on and off switch on the bottom if that's of benefit to you. There are three buttons to the side that I never use or program. They don't cause any interference when using the mouse. The top and majority of the mouse is black. The bottom is white. Would prefer it to be all black but the white portion is very thin but visible. I would prefer if Logitech made all their mice with a replaceable battery option. Some of their "higher" models are only replaceable and although the ergonomics seem a better fit they lose me on the rechargeable batteries. It's a nice mouse for the price and hope to get a lot of use out of it.

    I had to replace my keyboard and mouse combination and bought the K800 keyboard and this mouse to go along with it. I have an MX2 Anywhere Travel Mouse and was going to buy the full size one, but took a look at this one with pretty much the same capabilities as far as I am concerned (I'm not a gamer) for one third of the price of the full size MX, so I went with this one. Bluetooth was a plus, although my keyboard uses the unifying receiver, so putting them both on the same one wouldn't use an additional USB port, so it really didn't matter. Anyway, the mouse functions extremely well, very precise with smooth action and response. Feels great in your hand. I have one minor complaint. There are three buttons on the thumb side, "Forward", "Back", and "Connect" button. Invariably, I press the "Connect" button when I meant to press "Back". The mouse gets pretty confused when you do that and you won't be on the same webpage anymore. Since you only would press connect when connecting the mouse to your computer via Bluetooth or the Unifying receiver, they should have put the button somewhere else. Also, be aware that it takes a few seconds to wake up and handshake with your computer before it's connected and running. Not too long, but no instantaneous either. So, if I could give it 4.75 stars, I would, but nothing about this mouse would take it down to four stars, so, I'm rounding up. It's only been a month, but so far I could not be happier.

    Tremendous Value & Works Great on Mac

    I have a MacBook Pro for work, and I was struggling with the on-board trackpad. I was also having trouble spending $79 for the Apple Magic Mouse when I knew all I needed was a basic mouse. I found this mouse on sale during Black Friday, and I am really happy with it so far. That being said, I do have a few issues with this mouse that prevent me from giving a 5 star review. The first (a minor one), is that you cannot use it until after login, when setting the mouse up as a bluetooth mouse. This is because the OS will not connect with the mouse until after login, so you still have to use the trackpad to login. The second issue that I had was that the button placement and setup seems incorrect, but I was able to get around that by Installing Logitech Options on my MacBook. Lastly, for some reason my MacBook doesn't discover the mouse as a Bluetooth mouse, but it was able to pair with my MacBook over Bluetooth and works fine that way. In other words, it's not been an issue, but it is interesting that the MacBook doesn't see it as a mouse. Other than that, this mouse works absolutely fine for my day-to-day tasks on the Mac and I would still rate it highly despite the issues above. I would say if you have the money and want something to "just work out of the box", you may want to invest in the magic mouse, but this one works fine for me.

    The Logitech M720 is a jack of all trades, and I mean that in a good way. The basics are solid: the mouse has a reliable connection over both Bluetooth and the unifying receiver, tracks well on most surfaces without the use of a mousepad, and has a good button feel. Moreover, there are a few features that set this mouse apart from most others: Ergonomics. This mouse is one of the most comfortable mice I have used: it is ergonomic (for right-handed people) and pleasantly midsize, unlike some other mice like the MX Master 2S, and the build quality and grip is excellent. Battery Life. 24 months is the claim: I have not used the mouse for that long, but the battery seems to hold up well. The Scroll Wheel. I personally find it necessary to have Logitech's dual-mode scroll wheel based on what type of scrolling I'm doing. Beyond this, there is the feature to connect to multiple devices, which I don't use personally but could be helpful. Moreover, this stellar combination doesn't break the bank, at $20 as I bought it, which is one fifth of the price of the MX Master 2S. tl;dr very satisfied with the purchase, and if mice are to your tastes, this is probably the best combination of quality, features, and price on the market.

    Great Overall Daily Mouse

    I'm finicky when it comes to computer peripherals. It has to be the right size, right features, and right feel, especially if I need to use it on a daily basis for work. I went thru a batch of mouse peripherals and always something is off. It's either too small, too flat, too big, or hard to click, or very soft to click, and so on. The recent Logitech I had was good, but I felt it was small for prolonged use and results to uncomfortable palming. Until I ran across the M720, which I think just has the right size, shape, and feel. I like heavier mouse, and the heft to this is just right. I like that it has the ability to do very fast scroll when you need to. I like that it has a lot of buttons to customize. And overall, I like that it can both be used either as a Bluetooth mouse, or with the 2.4Ghz dongle. Overall, this is one mouse I would want to use for a long time. It's comfortable for a full-day's use. I'm currently using it via Bluetooth, and I do not sense any latency or lag. The lag only happens when you first turn on your laptop and then turn on the mouse. When it re-establishes connection, it goes thru 2-3 seconds of sluggishness, which is expected and acceptable. But all throughout the day, it stays very stable and responsive.

    Cool Product When Windows Updates Allows it to be

    Ever since the most recent Windows update, my built in blue tooth receiver on my PC regularly gets disabled, typically involving my PC going to sleep. This is a Windows issue, not a Logitech issue; however, my PC is pretty top-of-the-line, so I know that others would share this problem. I can't express how annoying it is to have to unpack my old keyboard once a week to troubleshoot my blue tooth. Why am I including this in a review about this product? Because a keyboard and a mouse are the only means most people have to control their PC to troubleshoot. This makes disabled input devices twice as frustrating as the standard issue. That said... When this product works (again, not a fault of the product, but a fault of a recent Windows update) it works incredibly well. Switching between two separate PCs is quick and easy. Paired with Logitech - K780 Wireless Keyboard, I have an elite switching mechanism for bouncing control back and forth. I love the concept here, and if they included 2 wireless receivers instead of one (or gave me the option to buy a second one) so that both PCs were controlled by wireless adapters and not blue tooth, the blue tooth issue I described above would be a non-factor. I greatly recommend WITH CAUTION, based on your system and your ability to troubleshoot.

    First, the build of the mouse is awesome. It fits my hand and compliments the natural resting form of my hand. So I give it a big thumbs up with that regard. Second, the features on it, such as the two modes of feel for the scroll wheel, is very well thought out. Before I start with what I dislike about this, let me say that I am being very critical for the purpose of being detailed as possible. One thing I do not like about this is the lag or lack of precise responsiveness. I bought this for my MacBook so I can do some photo editing and I could tell right away that I was going to have a little trouble with small movements. It doesn't pick up small movements very well. Also, moving from a dead stop is sort of jittery. I've tried using the mouse on different surfaces and all came back with the same results. I guess the silver lining to this is that the mouse is very versatile with regards to working surfaces you may have. Other than that I gave this 4 stars mainly because I feel that a 5 star is reserved for products that really impress me in every aspect.

    The missing link for multiple desktop devices

    This is a good mouse. Comfortable. Has more features than I need, but has useful features once you download the Logitech Options software that weren't listed on the package. Namely, using two devices that can run the Options software (desktop PC and a Surface 3, in my case) you can set up the two screens as if they were multiple displays on the same machine, allowing to set up their relative positions to each other, and then simply mouse from one paired device directly to another. It literally switches from controlling one device to another, simply because you moved to have the cursor move between screens. Not only that, but you can copy and paste between screens, and the data simply transfers wirelessly between the machines, using the Options software as the traffic cop. Sure, that's not necessarily useful for many, but the ability to do something like that without resorting to some sort of email or messaging, and making it all seamless, is really cool. All that aside, good mouse with tons of functionality that lets you easily work among up to 3 paired devices. Put this in a setup with the Logitech K780 keyboard and you're good to go with keys on those 3 devices as well.

    This is a nifty mouse. It's nice that you can pair 3 device and switch between multiple sources. Battery life is avg. I'm already on 1 bar our of 3. Maybe because I use the mouse more than the K780. The mouse is customizable through the Logitech software. Pairing is pretty easy. I had to use an old mouse first and kick off the Bluetooth searching on Windows 10. Once I was able to do that, I clicked the device selection button on the mouse and click away to pair. You can also use the provide dongle if your computer does not have Bluetooth. This mouse a hybrid between the MX Anywhere and the Marathon M705. The 2 that I love most. It feel natural in the hand. You do have the hyper scroll feature of the M705 with the stylish looks of the MX Anywhere. It's a good mice. I think Logitech makes one of the best non-gaming mice out there. Microsoft seems to make a mouse that doesn't fit naturally in your hands.

    I bought this as an upgrade from the previous gen M705 which i bought refurbished 4 years ago. That one I only replaced the batteries twice and only got rid of it b/c i had worn out the clicking mechanism. This one feels better, has a better scroll mechanism and has built in support for 3 devices. The flow software works okay, but the way it works is that when it detects you moving to the edge of the screen it switches the connected device in the mouse. Most similar software sends the traffic through a connection on the original machine. This is fine, but it means you can't just use any keyboard with the software and I'm not a fan of any of Logitech's Flow keyboards. Not knocking off any points b/c this is a review of the mouse and it's fantastic. Responsive and comfortable and cheap. I have every reason to believe it's just as durable and performant as the previous version so I expect to stick with it for a long time to come.

    Comfortable mouse but Bluetooth unstable for Win7

    Coming from a Logitech m705, this mouse is a bit wider so it fits more comfortably under my hand compared to the m705 where I have to curl my ring and pinky a bit. It also has the same free scrolling middle wheel that I loved on the m705, but the m720 seems to be a bit more sensitive. I end up over-scrolling more often with this mouse than the m705. The 3 device switching works as intended, however it may not be stable on a Windows 7 computer. I have a USB Bluetooth adapater with Smart technology, and the mouse is recognized and connects just fine. However, the connection drops every 30 seconds or so and the only fix is to either turn the mouse on/off or cycle through the other 2 devices on the mouse to get back to the Bluetooth one. I'm currently trying to get Logitech to help me with this but it might just be that Windows 7 is not compatible with Bluetooth Smart.

    Bought one to go w/ my Asus Chromebook C302. First one I bought would connect via bluetooth (no USB ports on the Chromebook), but was very sluggish. Connected just fine to my Lenovo Windows 10 via the included USB adapter; that Lenovo has always had terrible bluetooth connectivity. Took it to work for my Dell work laptop, bluetooth would connect, but again, very sluggish. Brought it back to the store, and after some trouble shooting, testing, etc. we determined it was a faulty mouse. Exchanged it for a new one, everything works as it should. Switching from my Chromebook to my work laptop, back to my personal laptop is a breeze. It's comfortable, big enough for my hands (I have small hands, but hate travel mice sizes; too small for me), and small enough to travel between home and office. Love this mouse; 3 nice mice, for 1 price.

    The mouse connected well via bluetooth and unifying dongle. It fits my hand nicely and is comfortable to use although the back button and the thumb button are a little hard to acquire quickly sometimes; but this might just be something you need to get used to. The mouse is very smooth and the scroll wheel is nice when in the lock mode. The problem is when the scroll wheel is in "hyper fast" scroll/ unlock mode. It works well when trying to get from the top to the bottom of a long document, but the wheel seems to be a bit too heavy and if you are trying to read something after you've stopped scrolling, the wheel tends to move by itself like it's shifting it's weight back to a neutral spot. Not a total deal breaker but I definitely annoying. But for 20 bucks it was well worth it and a great everyday / full size travel mouse.

    Awkward Mouse with Strange Ergonomics

    Wanted this to work for many reasons; I have the K780 Multi-Device Keyboard that I love and wanted this to accompany it, but I really didn't like it at all. I have an average size hand and that scroll wheel is just in the most awkward position I have ever seen. Basically you have to stretch your fingers to scroll and that just doesn't work for me. The shape of this mouse is also strange, Logitech didn't do a good job on that. Connection wise it is fine, it switches well to each device and that's all good and fine - but it feels terrible and the ergonomics are just bad. The mouse is also coated in the rubber-like coating that immediately gets dirty with any oils on your hand, even just your natural oils. Really hope Logitech starts producing better quality products again (mainly their mice), because I'm forced to go elsewhere at this time and that's coming from someone that used to love their mice.

    I needed to replace a mouse that came with an MS ergonomic keyboard because I gave that keyboard and mouse to my daughter. I really loved that MS mouse, which fit me perfectly and positioned my hand and wrist in a very natural and comfortable position. I could replace it with something similar, but have not found another one like it that can be purchased without buying the keyboard, and I didn't want to spend another $100 just to get the mouse. This Logitech mouse is not as perfect for me as the MS mouse was, but it is still pretty comfortable. It has several different features, programmable buttons, etc., but my needs are pretty simple so I haven't used them. It is very fast and responsive - sometimes a little too quick for me. I know that there is a way to adjust that speed, but I haven't taken the time to figure that out yet.

    I bought it to use with 3 computers without having to use 3 mice. It pairs up very easily with each computer and has a convenient button to switch computers. I often have a Windows 10 laptop and a Chromebook at hand and I can now switch between them without keeping track of which mouse is for which computer. Logitech mentions a speed mode for moving through long documents. This is implemented by having a push button above the scroll wheel that disengages the ratchet and lets the scroll wheel spin freely. You then re-engage the ratchet when near the desired area of the document you are on. It is heavier than low-cost mice and I suppose there is an ergonomic reason for that. Maybe it keeps it more stable. In any case, it is easy to get used to. I use it without the optional (free) software package and it operates as expected with all of my computers.

    I like the mouse and it works as expected with one minor annoyance. My mouse goes to sleep constantly. I use it on bluetooth and after the mouse sits idle for a few seconds it will not respond until a mouse move occurs. The scroll wheel will not wake the mouse up. I guess this is a power saving feature, I also think it is too aggressive and should not sleep so fast. I haven't looked at drivers there may be a way to adjust the sleep settings. I got this for $29 on sale. Good deal for that I would probably take it back if I paid the retail price of about $60. I would recommend this to a friend if they could get it for around $30 or less like I did.

    I have been using this mouse for about a week or so, and I would say it is one of the better bluetooth mice in the market for now. Before M720, I had used several Anywhere mouse MX series mice for years, including Anywhere MX, MX2, and MX Master. While they were all excellent, I found they don't last long, especially the plastic rubber part on the side. M720 was on sale at 39.99 at the time when I was in a Best store, so decided to give it a try. Having used it for about a week, I would say it is as good as MX series at least in terms of its precision and functions. Through the Option software, you can customize the mouse for each button, which you will find very useful especially if you are a heavy Excel user. For the grip, it is even more comfortable than MX and MX2, and as good as MX Master. While its durability is one to check over time, I definitely would recommend it to my friends.
