    Worth What I Paid

    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.

    Love the Free-Wheeling Speed of Scrolling

    Laser technology This mouse uses a laser to detect movement with accuracy across a variety of surface types, including glass. Because of the above statement in the Best Buy description I bought two of these (one for myself and one for my wife), they work great on any and every surface we had tried. Scroll wheel Supports click-to-click scrolling, so you can quickly navigate lists, slides, images and more. This is another great feature of this mouse. Best mouse I have owned in more than 25 years.

    I haven't tried a lot of other ones to compare, but this mouse more than satisfies my criteria. Responsive on multiple surfaces, comfortable in the hand, and the scroll wheel doesn't fatigue my finger the way my old wired mouse did. I have two of the USB receivers, so I use this mouse at work and at home on two different computers. Software allows for quick and easy connectivity/recognition of the mouse. There may be other more ergonomic or feature-laden (ie, for gamers) mice out there, but I'd definitely recommend this one. My only con would be price ... not terrible, but I think slightly overpriced at $40.

    I love this mouse BUT, after a year of heavy use I always have to replace it, because the cursor starts to become intermitting and it drives me nuts. I've tried other mice to replace it over the years, but no other mice have ever felt as great as this to use. So every year when it starts acting up I just go out and buy the same one. At least it inexpensive and it's been a current model for many years. I hope they keep making this one for years to come, so that I keep buying one every year! I would have rated it five stars instead of four if I didn't have to get a new one once a year.

    Screwy scrolling wheel

    Worked OK except for the fact that when using the scrolling wheel, the page would move several inches on the screen after the scrolling wheel motion was stopped. This occurred after a couple of seconds after the wheel was stopped and after the page had initially stopped. It seemed indiscriminate, sometimes jumping up, sometimes jumping down, no matter which way I had been scrolling. I have had several other Logitech and Microsoft mice and none of them has exhibited this behavior. I will be returning it.

    My Anywhere mouse MX went kaput so I needed a replacement within the Logitech line to maintain the same equipment. This mouse is great for me - business, just web browsing and the like. I use all the buttons. Compared to the MX, the tracking is a little different, which took some getting used to but it's fine now. And the top button function is different, but that's the one that I didn't use much anyway. All in all, a great vlue for a very good basic mouse. PS - I can't tell the difference in tracking efficacy between this and the darkfield tech. It's always on a mouse pad or the desk so it's just fine

    Actually bought this for a gift for my a family member, I've been using the same one at my new job in HR for about 6 months now. Haven't needed to change battery and the mouse has worked great. It fits nicely in your hand and the ability to do fast scrolling with the mouse wheel when it's in a free spin mode comes in handy when I'm working with regulations that are 100+ pages long. Keep an eye out on its price, goes on sale regularly, Twice I've bought it at full price and was able to go back and get half my money back with price matching Best Buy's deal prices.

    Comfortable and precise with some premium features

    The M705 makes for a great mid-range wireless mouse. The shape is ergonomic and very comfortable for extended periods of use. Laser tracking seems very accurate and the mouse is fairly well weighted. I'm a fan of the 2-mode scrolling, which allows you to switch between 3 line and smooth, quick scrolling at the touch of a button. One of the more unique functions on this mouse is the thumb rest button, which brings up a collage of all active windows when clicked. At first, I thought it was a pretty gimmicky feature, but I've grown to use it more than the taskbar to switch windows.

    Within a few months of making my purchase, the mouse started acting up. At times, it stopped scrolling while I was on a webpage, it didn't matter what page I was on. The mouse still scrolled on any other app, just not on a webpage. Sometimes I could go 2-3 weeks between instances and sometimes it happened 4 days a day. The only way to get my scrolling back was to restart my computer.

    My former mouse (also Logitech) had some age on it, and began to have issues with slow response, so I knew it was time to acquire a new one. I checked some reviews of multiple brands, and eventually decided on another Logitech (M705) based on combo of online reviews, and in-store testing. Well constructed and comfortable to the hand. It was easy to pair with my desktop computer, and the transition of model was a non-issue. I would very easily recommend this to others, and would buy it again myself.

    Can't really go wrong with a Logitech, but this thing is awesome for the price. 6 buttons (left, right, wheel click down, fwd/back buttons, and a hidden one on the side below the thumb). I am using it on a Mac and was plug and play for the basic functions (point, left and right click, and scroll). Had to install the software in order to program and use all the other buttons. I also like how the scroll wheel will allow for side to side scrolling as well. Battery life so far is amazing. Been on every day all day for a few months and isn't showing low battery yet.

    I needed to get a new mouse for work that would fit my hand better as the amount of computer work was actually aggravating the mild arthritis I have been experiencing. A larger mouse was in order. I now own two of these (one for work and one everywhere else). My hand is much better now as it is the right size. It has all the features I need and it all works seemlessly whether I'm working on a PC, a linux box, or a chrome book. No crazy amount of fighting with the drivers or other software. It is customizable in Windows so this is the mouse for me

    I love pretty much everything about this mouse except for the build quality. It’s still fantastically built for the price but I was expecting it to feel more sturdy. I love the feature of being able to switch between smooth or ridged scrolling with a click of a button. The clicks are satisfying, the texture of the plastic is fantastic, and allows for the natural shape of my hand to rest on top. Very ergonomic. Great accessory.

    This mouse is very nice. It has all the functions its' big brother has at less than half the cost. That is why I bought two, one to have as an extra at home and one for work. Just so you know, I use this mouse all day long at work and when I get home. The date they show is when I bought the two recent ones. I have had mine at home for over three years.

    I bought the mouse for my wife so she could work from home. So much easier then using the touchpad. Only thing was that we have a Mac and there are two models, one that works better with windows and a newer one that works perfect with both Mac and Windows. If your buying it for a Mac, just make sure your buying the newer one. They look exactly alike except for one little thing under the mouse. But other than that, I love that you can change the options of the mouse to what would fit you better.

    I got it as a replacement for an older one for when I'm on the road. Love the design what I really like .... once I got using it the rolling button also acts like a left-right tab move. Found this out after I had been using it awhile. great device very responsive a solid product.

    Great for Windows and Mac alike if you don' mind the dongle. I somewhat prefer a native Apple mouse since I don' t have to use a USB transmitter, but the batter life on this is amazing! Other mice you will be changing batteries all the time unless you use a lithium battery. With this device you will forget it even has a battery or that it is wireless. So flawless!

    I'm already using a wired version of this mouse on my PC and wanted to upgrade my older sony mouse so 1st considered Logitech. the Logitech, in my opinion, has better ergonomics and feels more robust (probably due to the 2nd battery) vis. the sony. it just has a more robust feel. the wheel is also very responsive and it scores additional points on the design department (matches my dark Lenovo laptop). overall, I'm very pleased with this product (I just wished it was on sale but I was able to defray the cost with a giftcard so had to pony up a few more bucks)..

    Great mouse for a power user like myself who doesn't need all the extra buttons on gaming mice. With proper Logitech drivers and software installed, the hidden thumb button is one of its best features; by default, it's configured to open Task View in Windows 10. Very useful and efficient for switching between multiple desktops! Flywheel for infinite scroll comes in handy quite often too. Phenomenal battery life and reliability too. Never encountered any issues with lag or dropped connection to dongle.

    I have used most of the Logitech wireless mice, for my desktops and notebooks. I recently upgraded my desktop to a nice system suitable for gaming, and had been using a Logitech MX Performance mouse, from a few years ago. The new model MX is $100, I use this model (M705) with my notebook - I compared the feel and performance of the two mice, and decided that the new mouse for my system would be the M705. I can't see or feel a difference in the performance. Great mouse, I can easily recommend it. .
