    This mouse did not do as said. I even tried to scroll on mouse pad and it was slow and required a lot more effort to move the mouse around. Returned to the store.

    This mouse feels good in the hand however it is hard to control and slow down the speed.

    It took me a little bit to get used to how fast the scroller was but I can hit the button and make it slower so I like that function.

    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.

    Returned this product because it was slow and unresponsive. It is also smaller than expected, which made it less comfortable for using it long periods of time.

    i have used logitech mice and keyboards for years and i'm always happy with their products. this mouse seems a tad bit slower to respond (using it on the sofa, coffee table, dining table etc.) than the M510 and the MX, probably needs a bit of tweaking with the settings simply. i'd definitely recommend their mice and keyboards.

    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.

    The M705 marathon mouse is very comfortable for right- handed users. The buttons are well placed for easy use and, when coupled with the Logitech Set Point software, allows tailoring to individual needs. The scroll wheel can be switched from slow to rapid with the push of a button. Altogether a pleasant and easy mouse to use for most computing activities.

    I really wanted to like this mouse. Unfortunately, it just drops responsiveness ever so often. I do a lot of editing of music and video and the mouse is just too slow at times. I stayed away from a wireless mouse for a long time and was hoping that the tech had improved enough, cause I really wanted a clean desktop with no wires. Unfortunately, the tech is still not there. Color me disappointed!

    Great Look and Features, Clumsy Movement

    Posted

    Overall it's a great value, at under $40 for a good size optical mouse with a few extras. The only thing I have a problem with is the movement. It's not as precise as my old mouse, which cost half the price. It's also kind of slow, even with windows speed setting set all the way up to fast. It's not very sensitive. It makes panning across multiple displays kind of frustrating because the movement is kind of delayed. It's not awful, but it's not great either.
