    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!

    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.

    Perfect for my purpose

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 !

    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.

    Got this mouse on sale. Needed a wireless mouse that wasn't Bluetooth. This mouse does not disappoint. Has a heavy spin wheel that can be toggled between free spin and slowed.

    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.

    This is my second time buying this mouse. The first one I had lasted about 6 years before I had to replace it. I was glad that this mouse was still the same design because it does exactly what it is supposed to do.

    Great mouse for the price, works with Logitech Unifying, and is so much better than an in house mouse that you are given at work, so I bring my own and is great for meetings. I hate the trackpad on my windows work machine!

    This is probably the best mouse I've ever used. It's performance is precise and long battery life. I highly recommend this product for those of us who still use a mouse with our laptops.

    I've had this mouse for a few weeks now and it's been great. Loving the customizable buttons and the increased productivity. The side scroll is really useful for Excel sheets as well.

    The Logitech laser mouse fits the hand nicely. It reacts quickly. It is nice not to have to charge it since it runs on batteries.

    I normally wouldn't write about a mouse. But this thing is fantastic, it's portable -but substantial enough to bring to work - I get gout in my hands so a small mouse can be painful. This is great.

    I was pleased with the product. The price was within my budget and it seems to be a quality product. I use this with my laptop and find it easier to use than the touch pad.
