    Liked it enough to buy another

    Excellent wireless mouse. I bought one of these when the model first came out and it lasted for years before the right-click button began showing signs of wear. I use the mouse heavily for computing and gaming. After surveying the current models, I was happy to buy the same M705 model again, and at a much cheaper price than the first time! This has the features I need - wireless, scroll wheel, minimal thumb buttons, and a shape that is comfortable in my hand for extended periods of time. I wouldn't mind if it was a little larger for my big hands, but the shape is easy to grip. Some gamers may desire higher resolution, faster response, more buttons, but I don't require that (not into fast-twitch competitive shooters). I don't want extra buttons because I won't use them and they actually get in the way and cause unintended actions. For example, the 'higher' Logitech models have a new button to control multiple sources, like I'll ever use that, which is located near the other thumb buttons and too easy to press. I like the fact that this model uses 2 AA batteries instead of a rechargeable internal battery. No need to bother with a wired charging stand; the batteries last for so many months I can't keep track, and if they ever get low just pop in some new ones and forget about it again. It also seems fairly rugged and survived multiple falls onto a wood floor. If you are looking for a shaped wireless mouse for anything but high-end gaming, I recommend this unit!

    Side to side control is annoying

    If you work in 3-D or graphics, this is probably not the right mouse for your line of work. The side to side "paging" feature on the scrolling wheel is annoying when trying to use it for precise 3-D Autocad navigation and selecting. This feature causes mis-picks and makes it virtually impossible to reliably pan your drawings while working. I'm returning this mouse which I'd purchased after my previous M5XX series Logitech mouse's scroll wheel began to fail after 3 years of reliable, grinding use at work. I also disliked the "tinny" and too cheap feeling actuation on the other buttons. My older Logitech still feels more robust and well built in comparison.

    Scroll wheel seems out of balance.

    The only reason I gave this three stars instead of five is due to the scroll wheel. When you release the wheel it "settles" in a different position and causes the page you are viewing to scroll up/down or the image to zoom in/out. It is annoying but it should not undo all of the other great features of this mouse. Maybe I had purchased a defective unit but it is not worth my time to find out as I have become accustomed to this "quirk". Besides the back/forward buttons, it also has a small button towards the bottom that when pressed, displays all of the active windows and allows you to select a new window seamlessly. This is a major positive for my line of work as it has made me feel more productive in product design and CAD/CAM engineering.

    Perfect Mid-Sized Mouse

    The MX Master was too big. The MX Anywhere was too small. Despite its age, the Logitech Marathon remains the best mid-sized mouse for the everyday user. The size of the Marathon 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 Marathon 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.

    I was looking for a 'unifi' receiver capable mouse with a thumb button for browsing backup. I got this one on a great deal, I think it was 50% off. I jumped without looking much at the features above my minimum requirements. Now that I'm using it, the 'select' a scroll speed is great. One click and you can scroll even the longest web pages in one tug. Click it again and you have line by line detail control. It tracks great like all of the 'multi surface' Logitech mice of the last few years and the click feel is a little more premium than the low-grade unifi mice. All around a really good machine.

    Mouse really only has 4 buttons, but all mice makers advertise with side scroll as if there is more buttons. You have left, right, fwd and back. The scroll wheel can be used as either free scroll or ratchet type scroll by the click of a button. LOL Mouse is a good buy for the money and I would recommend and / or buy again. The only negative is when you have it set to free scroll, at times it doesn't rest or stop where you want it to.

    I've had this mouse since it was first released, like years ago. When I first bought it, I think it was like $60 or $70. Maybe more. Over a decade ago I had bought one similar to this for over $100. ANYWAY... this mouse is pretty cheap, and feels good, buttons are very functional, and battery lasts about 18 months. Such a good value. Just get this mouse if you need a simple mouse with extra buttons. So good.

    I like the scroll wheel lock and ergonomic design

    The scroll wheel lock was the feature which inclined me to buy it. With the push of the button behind the scroll wheel, it spins freely. No need to continue fingering the wheel to get to the bottom of long pages. Just push the button and give the wheel a spin. If I want to scroll smaller areas, I just re-engage the lock and it goes back to operating like a tradition mouse, preventing the wheel to spin freely.

    Okay General Purpose Mouse

    Comfortable in the hand (which is my number one requirement for a mouse). No problems using it with my iMac. Smooth scrolling often jumps around a little bit which makes me switch back to click scrolling even though I prefer smooth scrolling. If I had to buy another mouse right now, I would probably look into another Kensington as I have had those in the past and really liked them and they last for many years.

    I've had one of these previously, after many years of use if finally stopped working properly. The back and forth buttons on the thump is almost a must for me, especially when web browsing. The scroll lock is very usefully when reading long pages or scrolling through long pages of text (web or document). Without having to spend too much on a mouse, this was a great purchase.

    And I rushed to Best Buy to find another version of this. I've used lots of mice over the years and this one is the best for my needs. It's very responsive and fits my hand well. I don't mind that it isn't Bluetooth as this is connected to my home PC all the time - so I don't mind that I need the little RF dongle plugged in!

    Very good mouse that has the nice buttons on the side. The scroll wheel feels well engineered. Like almost luxurious when you spin it. It is a good size, and battery last long. I work at my desktop station most of the time but this is my travel mouse and it is better than my normal mouse.

    I kept my old mouse despites some random disconnecting issues after around 10 years of good services. I was looking for a close replacement and did not find for a long time. This one is even better than my old one. I LOVE it ! Comfort and precision for the occasionnal gamer with plenty of features. The price was right too !

    Very Good Fit

    I need an ergonomic mouse for work, and this one is a very good fit for my small hand and very comfortable. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the scroll wheel is a little too sensitive so sometimes it jumps down the page when you slightly touch it by accident.

    Best wireless mouse I ever owned

    This is the best wireless mouse I have ever owned. I particularly love the free spinning option on the mouse wheel that rapidly scrolls through a screen. The other plus is that there's no annoying laser light coming out of the bottom. It works on almost any surface I use it on. The price was reasonable also.

    VERY satisfied with this mouse. Have bought cheaper ones, but grew tired of running out of battery, Also, cheaper ones did not track well, really frustrating. For about $25. I am super happy with response of mouse tracking and pleased battery life should be 3 years. Yay! I also just like the feel of it in my hand.

    This mouse is exactly what we were looking for. Affordable, worked right out of the box, easy to install and use. All buttons were responsive and sensitivity is easily adjusted.Perfect for our student to use with laptop and affordable enough to replace should there be an unfortunate "accident."

    My old mouse finally died, new batteries did not help, dragging my socked feet on the carpet and touching the mouse did not work either. So, I brought a new and younger mouse, it REALLY runs circles around my OLD mouse.

    This is a very good mouse for home and business work. It glides smooth on all surfaces and ergonomics make it fit naturally in your hand. Buttons are spaced in a natural way and can be reached with little effort.
