    Very good mouse for the price

    The battery life on the Marathon M705 mouse is outstanding. After 6 months of daily use my duracell batteries are still at 90% of original power. If you hate changing batteries this is the mouse for you. It fits comfortably in my big hands and works well most of the time but....Occasionally it will get "laggy" or feel like the pointer is trying to keep up with the input from the mouse. This could be some interference but other Logitechs Iv'e had never had this problem. This is only once in a while and not nearly often enough to even be an inconvenience. Overall it's a very good mouse at it's price point.

    Didn't fit my hand well.

    First, off there is no doubt this is an awesome mouse. It has some really awesome features and tons of people love this mouse. The reason I returned it was because it didn't fit my hand well. More specifically, I tend to physically pick up my mouse with my thumb and pinkie finger to reposition it. This mouse was really hard for me to naturally pick it up and reposition like that. It cramped my hand when I did. I also noticed that there isn't a lot of support for the lower palm of your hand which i like. So I returned it and purchased the Logitech 510 which corrected both of these issues for me. Love that mouse.

    Fourth One Purchased

    I've gone through three of these in the last 7-8 years, now on my fourth. #3 still works just fine and is now for the laptop. I bought this one because it was so cheap and was replacing keyboard at the same time. All four might not have been exact model (3 and 4 definitely are), but all were the "3 Year Battery Life" model. Mouse lives up to the claim - or close enough. I can't remember the last time I had to replace batteries. I could never remember to plug in the rechargeable ones and I hate the "mini" mice. This is the perfect mid-size mouse and the only model/version I'll ever buy again.

    This mouse is a cheap wireless mouse that just works. Tracking works pretty well for it's price and I haven't noticed any lagging due to it being wireless. The only thing I can imagine becoming a problem is the battery door on the bottom of the mouse. The battery door is half of the bottom of the mouse itself and is a simple "slide on and click" design and when it's on, it is very easy for it to come off....almost too easy. Meaning eventually I'm worried it may just slide off from normal use. They could have designed a better battery solution. But until then, this feels pretty solid.

    Best mouse for many uses

    I have used this for about 5 years now, and bought another while it was on sale just in case. It's still going strong though, and I love it more than any other mouse. You can game with it, although you can change the dpi on the fly or anything fancy, but it's still good for non competitive games. Why do I love it so much? Battery life, comfort, weight, and it has just enough features for about 99% of what I do daily. I have tried about 15 other mice (no exaggeration) and this is the one that I keep coming back to. Do download and install the latest drivers for it and set up your extra fancy buttons and you're good to go.

    The best mouse for the price

    I got this mouse specifically for work. It's a bit larger than a typical mouse, so for my hands, it's a bit more comfortable. Typical great Logitech quality, it feels solid and works very well. The only strange design decision was to put the somewhat tall toggle button for freewheeling/clicking when scrolling in line with the scroll wheel: it can feel like it's getting in the way. And, because it's a mechanical switch, it always gets reset when you store it for travel. I expect this mouse to work flawlessly for several years, as my other Logitech mice have. It's nice to be able to count on a brand to always meet expectations.

    Great mouse

    I love how easy this mouse is to use and how comfortable it is. I had one at work and decided to get the same one for my laptop at home as well. I like that the size of this mouse is a little smaller than some of the more expensive ones so it travels well, but it's not as small as a laptop mouse and has more features. I really like being able to switch the scroll wheel between clicking or rolling freely by touching the top button. I do wish they had the thumb scroll wheel on this mouse like they have on one of their more expensive ones for zooming, but that is pretty minor. Overall, this mouse is comfortable, easy to customize, and durable.

    Best Desktop Mouse

    This mouse is the most comfortable mouse I've used. It has nice rubber sides and a great curve for you hand. The mouse slides very smoothly along most surfaces. The laser tracks great. The thumb buttons are great. Forward and back are perfectly placed, and there is a hidden one at the bottom. This shows all open windows which is awesome do quickly switch to other windows. The fast scroll wheel is the best feeling wheel on any mouse. It is sturdy, easy to spin with the perfect resistance. The weight with the batteries is just right. Not too light and not too heavy. If you want a mouse for regular desktop use, this is the one to get.

    Great mouse for traveling

    I've tried a number of small mice for traveling with my laptop, and all have been OK. This is the first time I've been really happy and here's why: - It's small and portable, but still a very comfortable fit for my hand. - My home mouse is also a Logitech, so I can just leave the unifying receiver plugged into the USB port and go. Now switching needed. - It's very responsive and has all of the navigation buttons I'll ever need. - It works on just about every surface I've tried, even glass. - And it was a great low price (on sale) Overall this is an excellent mouse for home or for travel. I highly recommend it.

    Perfect Mid-Sized Mouse

    The MX Master was too big. The MX Anywhere was too small. Despite its age, the Logitech M705 remains the best mid-sized mouse for the everyday user. The size of the M705 allows for it to operate as a travel mouse or permanent fixture and the extended battery life means I don't have to recharge all the time, as comes with MX series mice. Because of the continued reliability and comfort that this mouse provides, my Radiology group has opted to use the M705 at all workstations around the area. Free scroll is a must for my radiologists and the design of the mouse allows for all grip styles.

    This is my second mouse of this model. Although the first one still works, I finally wore it out after about four years. The pointer just isn't 100% accurate anymore even after thorough cleaning. It's now my backup mouse. I use a mouse 8 hours a day, 5 days a week working with text on screen, so I need great accuracy on highlighting and cutting and pasting. This mouse gets dropped, it gets banged, it gets dirty, but these mice keep right on working. And the battery life is truly legendary. I went three years between battery changes on the first mouse and I never, ever, turn it off. Highly recommended.

    I purchased the "Logitech - Marathon Mouse M705 Wireless Laser Mouse - Black" as wearing out my previous Logitech after 5 years of constant and abusive use, breaking the left mouse button, so I repurchased another of the same make and model. The "Logitech - Marathon Mouse M705 Wireless Laser Mouse - Black" is a workhorse and takes a lot of abuse and is very comfortable on the hand and fingers. There are extra buttons that can be programmed or just turned off with the downloadable software that comes with it. I have several Logitech products and have found them all to be outstanding (keyboard, video cams, microphones, etc.)

    Fast Scrolling wheel but...

    This mouse has a great scrolling wheel, allowing a great number of lines to be scanned with a single flip of the wheel. However, The wheel doesn't stop at the end but rolls back a few rows. Someone suggested placing a piece of tape on one of the buttons to reduce this effect and that worked great even though it reduces the numbers of lines scrolled with each flick. I tried to setup single line scrolling (with the scroll click turned on) but never could get it to work on most screens. The least is 3 lines. Sometimes it will scroll more than 3 and you'll need to play with the settings to get it to work consistently.

    Great mouse! Just the right size!

    I have big hands, and I use my Ultra Book in my recliner a lot. My current mouse was a "laptop" mouse, wick was just too small for me to use comfortably. However, I didn't want a *full size" mouse. This mouse was a great choice, it is big enough for my hands, yet not a "full size" mouse. Since I use the very expensive version of this mouse at the office, I figure I would try this one at the house. It has ALL of the options and features you could ever want the a wireless mouse. I just wish that the sensitivity could be a little more adjustable. I highly recommend this mouse to others. - C.A.

    Works well but not as good as other Logitech mice

    I have owned two other wireless laser mice from Logitech (a Performance MX and a MX Revolution). Both of those worked like champs. One recently began suffering what appears to be a common end of life failure for logitech mice, the microswitch that detects mice clicks begins to fail and registers multiple clicks or click-drags. So, this was to replace that one. All is very good for this mouse except the scroll wheel is not all that good. On some occasions, it seems to scroll too fast, but all too often it seems to be very unresponsive and you are left scrolling for ever to slowing move down the document you are working on.

    One of the best wireless mice

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I have used many Logitech wireless mice in the past and this is one of my favorites. It fits comfortably in my hand and is very easy to use. I love the back and forward buttons on the side and the scroll wheel is smooth and fast. This is a plug and play device which hooked up to my Windows PCs and MacBook with no issues at all. It does require two AA batteries which come with this, so if you don't use this often, just make sure you take them out. You can also customize the mouse buttons and even get it to do specific things within Office applications, which is pretty awesome.

    Good mouse, except for the scroll wheel

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Ergonomics, size, weight, etc are all fine...except the scroll wheel. At first I was going to return it because of the endless rolling of the scroll wheel. What makes it worse is the fact that the wheel is so loose that normal mouse use causes the wheel to shift on its own and scroll the page. A little research revealed the rolling action is switchable between freewheeling and staggered, so I switched it. It's better but I still don't like it. The wheel is noticeably loose in the housing, which is very obvious when using it as it feels insecure and it makes a rattling noise.

    Wanted to try this mid-priced Logitech design before committing to the high-end model (separate review). Comfortable in the hand and good precision for wireless. Battery life not an issue as the "marathon" designation perfectly describes the battery longevity. Nice feature to be able to "unlock" the wheel at the touch of a button for quick scrolling and then go right back to the 'clicky' wheel >> both of which have their uses and good to be able to use both at will. The overall performance of this model had me going out to get the luxury 'MX Master' model after a couple of weeks of use.

    Best mouse I've used

    I typed and mouse all day for work. My mouse is the second most important piece of equipment I used at work, next to my keyboard. I've been through countless models and brands, including within Logitech. This mouse is the best I've found so far. I'm constantly in and out of windows explorer files and this mouse gives me a quick way to navigate within the open windows, with 2 scroll type options; fast and normal, back and forth buttons and is very comfortable. Maybe if you had larger hands, I'd look for something else, but for me, medium and smaller, it's perfect!

    The mouse fits my hand perfectly and is extremely comfortable to use. I don't particularly like the free moving scroll wheel but the option to enable the standard clicking solves that issue. The convenience of being wireless can't be understated however there are times where a minor tracking problem is evident. It isn't huge or incredibly common but it can be slightly bothersome when gaming for instance. Overall I am pleased with the product and very happy with the money I spent ($26 on sale). A big upgrade from the tiny corded $4 mouse I had been using.
