    Terrible Tracking

    When the Logitech mouse I bought in 2007 began to fail me I turned to m705 because it was the exact same chassis as the mouse I have used for years. Well the ergonomics were about the same but that was about it, the tracking on this mouse was terrible. I first noticed the sluggish response moving the cursor upon first use. I figured it was something with the drivers. I tried boosting the pointer speed to max both in windows and in Logitech's software, even tried a suggestion to move the blutooth dongle away from other USB devices, nothing worked. Now, because I threw away the packaging like a dimwit, I'm stuck with a mouse that moves the cursor slower then cold molasses.

    The pointer seems just a little off center when using it with a mac.

    Wheel turns too freely, causing cursor to travel too far. Really annoying.

    Needed a new mouse for work. While it works, was on sale for a decent price, and is functional with the back/forward buttons and multiple scrolling options, it is more on the medium mouse size and isn't the smoothest as the pointer seems to jump ever so slightly on screen. Gets the job done.

    The wheel is difficult to control. I have hard time in moving the cursor. I replaced with a cheaper one which works lot better.

    The scroll wheel on this mouse is way too sloppy. Pages constantly drift because of this. It's difficult to have quck form filling because you can barely get the pointer to stay in one spot.

    I bought this mouse to replace a cheap one that broke. This mouse is comfortable and fits well in my hand. I find the scroll wheel to be a little too easy to spin; it tends to loose my cursor by moving too fast. Other than that, it works great.

    I did a bunch of research before buying this mouse. Overall I'm happy with it - it still doesn't work on all surfaces very well (e.g. vinyl tablecloths) however if you're at a standard desk it works great. Feels great in the hand and has a nice weight and movement. Still can't get the pointer to move at exactly the speed I want but I've adapted to it.

    Use this at work. It is a perfect fit for my hands. Feels really solid and strong. Smooth cursor movements no delays. Highly recommended. Purchased at $20 and well worth the money.

    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.
