5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great. I'm a big fan of forward and back buttons on the side of the mouse when browsing the web.

Cons: I would prefer a model without the physical toggle for the low-friction scroll wheel mode, but I don't dislike it enough to take an egg off for it. It is sometimes in my way when I scroll or click.

3 out of 5 eggsAlright mouse, shame about the scroll wheel

Pros: Love the ergonomic shape and thumb buttons. Bought it to replace a years-old MX518, which has a similar form factor, that had finally given up the ghost a few months ago. Seems responsive enough. Good cord length (some of us still want our mice to have tails!). Nice, smooth feel. Quite professional looking. I loved the old MX518, wanted something similar, or at least something with a few extra buttons, without the crazy transformers-on-steroids gaming mouse look.

Cons: The "tilt wheel" is... just... terrible. There's a toggle button right behind it for whether you want it to spin freely or normal, uh, clicky-scroll mode. Seems pretty gimmicky to me, but I guess maybe someone, somewhere has a good use for the "just fling the wheel with wild abandon, reach the bottom of your forum thread 73% faster!" mode. When in wild abandon mode, it's extremely sensitive, and like others have said, tends to move in random directions just by looking at it sideways. Lock it into clicky-scroll mode, never look back.

Even when in clicky-scroll mode, the wheel seems very loose, both side to side and front to back. Like it really wants to be in wild abandon mode.

I don't really like the side tilt thing, either. To just plain middle click, I have to very deliberately try to go straight down, because if my finger does the normal middle click muscle memory motion that it's done for the last 20 years, this mouse interprets it as left tilt, not middle click, and nothing happens. I think I could get into the side tilt thing if it weren't interfering with middle click.

Other Thoughts: In an attempt to fix the side-tilt-middle-click thing, I thought I'd try to maybe install SetPoint and customize the buttons. If nothing else, give up left tilt by mapping it to the same action as regular middle click, so that movement would work more reliably for me. Bad idea.

My mouse and keyboard are going through a KVM, which worked fine on its own with standard Windows drivers. But once I put SetPoint on, it did something terrible and everything completely locked up. Locked up for several minutes during install but finally came back, so I restarted like it wanted me to. Then it would lock everything on the login screen, couldn't get anything to work, couldn't get to Safe Mode, couldn't do anything. It still worked just fine on the other computer (via KVM, but hadn't installed SetPoint there yet). And if I pulled the mouse out of the KVM and plugged it in directly, it worked fine. Can't give up my KVM, so I finally uninstalled SetPoint. And then spent another 20 minutes methodically removing all traces of it, because a simple uninstall wasn't good enough, still locked everything up when running through the KVM.

Back working now. KVM is more important than middle click. So I got that going for me.

1 out of 5 eggsBought two - both broke in a year

Pros: Fast mouse, good response, I like how it fits in my hand.

Cons: The wire inside the mouse turns at two 90 degree angles, guaranteeing that the mouse will start randomly disconnecting within a few months when the wires inside the bundle break.

If you buy this mouse, do not expect it to last more than 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Old Logitech mice came with reinforced wires, and were wired in such a way that the wires did not bend inside the casing. This mouse, for whatever reason, chose not to have standoffs so that the wires could pass underneath the circuit board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 7 Button Mouse...

Pros: 7 programmable buttons. Get X-Mouse Button Control (PC only) and, with 5 layers of commands, have up to 35 mouse commands for each program on your computer. Makes editing audio in Pro Tools way faster than hunting for keys.

Cons: A very minor advisory, just be patient as the Scroll Wheel Button can be a bit stiff at first.

Pros: I've been using the older model for nearly 5 years bought the new one only because of cosmetic and it's very well built.

Cons: software

5 out of 5 eggsA great mouse for a variety of grip types.

Pros: + Build quality feels very good.
It's just a bunch of plastic and and rubber, but it feels sturdy. It has a modest weight which provides accuracy and control, but still allows one to move it freely using a fingertip grip. Buttons sound and feel nice to press, but the middle mouse button requires more force than usual to press down. Thankfully if you do not like this, you can reprogram the middle mouse click function to one of the thumb buttons. Mouse wheel is flat with tiny ridges. I have no trouble with grip at all despite it not looking particularly grippy, even when my hands are sweaty. The finish doesn't leave any fingerprints behind, which is excellent, and it doesn't look like it would show very much wear, if at all. Cord doesn't feel particularly great, but it isn't cheap either.

+ Long cord length (Approximately 70 inches)
I am free to move my mouse all over my desktop without worrying about cable length.

+ Five programmable buttons (middle mouse, left and right scroll, front and rear thumb buttons)
Logitech Setpoint is required to customize these features. If you're not using Setpoint, why not? These buttons are able to be assigned as keystrokes or special functions (Minimize and maximize page, copy and paste, zoom, app switching, start screen, double click, one-touch search, back and forward browsing, etc)

+ Laser tracking feels reasonably accurate
I am able to use this smoothly without issue on uneven cardboard, my scratchy desk, my jeans, my hairy arm, and even glass. I can even use it as a mini-touchpad, albeit mirrored. Why would I want to do that? Out of curiosity! Some people report issues when lifting the mouse quickly in gaming, causing the cursor to flick around because the laser is still catching the surface very briefly. One solution to this is slightly cover the bottom of the laser hole (The technical term, of course) with tape. I personally game a lot and this is not an issue. I have trouble even replicating it, but I did once. Don't worry about it.

+ Conforms to a variety of grip types.
It looks like it was designed for a very hands-on grip. was that a pun or just apt? Left mouse button is elongated and the sides are rubberized and contoured for the thumb and pinky. But I am able to use it just fine with a "claw-type" and "fingertip-type" grip. I find it uncomfortable to use with my entire hand on the mouse, but that's just me, not the mouse's problem.

Cons: - Button to switch between free-scroll and notched scroll is not programmable.
It's just a mechanical button. I guess it's not really a bad thing because it's not an issue with the mouse design itself. I just kinda wish I had something else to press.

- Free-scrolling wheel is really expletive weird.
It seems like every time I need to use it, I have no issues whatsoever. Press the button, flick once to get through my 50-page list (I keep lots of lists. Don't ask), press again for notched. No problems. I have a smooth-scrolling extension on Google Chrome (also from Logitech and requires Setpoint) that looks and feels great, so I kind of want to use the free-scrolling wheel more often. Problem is, it's kinda inconsistent.

Sometimes it will scroll right back to where it was before. I thought maybe that was because it is frictionless and it just kept going, so I decided to hold the wheel at a stop for a second. And I've tried it for several seconds, too. As soon as I lift my finger off the wheel, it will scroll back up. I don't know exactly how mice work, so I cannot explain this. I don't like this.

It doesn't happen ALL the time, though. It's really unusual. If the frictionless wheel is the feature that is screaming your name, look for another mouse with this feature. It will probably work most of the time you need it, but it would really pull my pork if I was working and it started to act up.

Other Thoughts: I thought the white stripe would be bad-looking, but it's actually dark grey and it has grown on me. Many of you probably don't care. Also the laser does not shine outside of the mouse, so it will provide no distracting illuminations at night.

I was very satisfied with Logitech's products in the past (I own a webcam and headset by them), so I decided to get this when I saw it was $27. I was thinking of going for the Kensington Pro-Fit mouse, which was about $10 cheaper and had very similar features, but wanted to stick with the Logitech name.

I am pretty glad I did. This is the perfect mouse for me, although it lacks some features such as adjustable DPI and ambidexterity (Sorry lefties).

I use this mouse for minor image-editing work (just using GIMP for fun), gaming (Mostly shooters and RPGs, but also some MMO and RTS games), and general computer-y stuff. This mouse provides me with the control I need to make careful shots quickly, but unfortunately this does not compensate for my reaction times and poor aiming when caught by surprise. When will they make a mouse that can aim for me?!

I have the middle mouse remapped to minimize (Nobody can know what I make lists of. NOBODY) and the rear thumb button has the middle-click functionality, which is much more comfortable. Front button is mapped to \ and left and right scroll clicks are mapped to [ and ] respectively. I wanted to have them copy and paste, but when I game, these buttons default to "ctrl" (because ctrl+v/c) when trying to map them. SETPOINT HAS OPTIONS FOR DIFFERENT MAPPING COMBINATIONS BASED ON WHAT PROGRAM YOU ARE USING, but it seems like a pain to set up for a lot of games and when I tried it didn't work. I can only assume that I have no idea what I'm doing, right?

I have owned this product for over a month now and it has shown no signs of wear or use. Just as good as the day I got it. I plan on updating this as soon as I experience any issues with it.

I highly recommend this product to anybody looking for a step-up from the cheap, basic mice a distant friend or relative might have thrown at you saying "oh hey see if this works for ya". If you play MMOs, you might want a mouse that accommodates more buttons (as an MMO player I find it hilarious that people need that many buttons. I'm just fine using my other hand to use WASD and a modifier+key simultaneously no sarcasm), or if you require precision for image editing or other games, you might want something with adjustable DPI. And if you're a klutz maybe you want something built like a tank. Otherwise, this is great.

5 out of 5 eggsLogitech M500 Mouse

Pros: After hours of research this mouse has the right weight, feel, and a scrolling wheel that either free-wheelies or rotates incrementally with the push of the button on top. The mouse uses quality Omron microswitches and the laser is steady and accurate. It is a wired mouse.

Cons: This my 3rd mouse of this style by choice. After 3 years of hard use everyday the first mouse was simply worn out. I hope the 2 remaining mice I have of this type last at least three years.

Other Thoughts: Does not have all the extra programmable buttons that a gamer might like to have. Those buttons would be in my way. It is lazer, not optical. Lazer is better and I don't need a moude pad. It is also wired. No batteries, just reliable connection to USB 2-3.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: Very comfortable, decent precision, and the ability to let the scroll wheel loose. Clicking is decently quiet and the buttons are firm enough that I don't accidentally click the buttons just by resting my fingers on them.

Cons: * The forward/back buttons are pretty excessively big in my opinion, and a little "spongy".
* The scroll wheel has too much weight to it, where even when the "super fast" mode is off, it can still freely spin a few clicks.
* The wheel tilt clicks are too sensitive. I've often found myself trying to middle click and accidentally tilting at the same time. But with some practice, you can avoid this.
* Some of the paint comes off pretty easily

Other Thoughts: I'm a little wary if the rubbery thumb rest will tatter after a while. I've used this mouse for a few months and so far its fine, but I'll be pretty annoyed if it starts getting brittle.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay, but not a gaming mouse

Pros: Bought as a replacement for a 6 year old Logitec MX518 that had started to have issues. Comfortable with scroll wheel and forward/back browser buttons. Tilt and wheel click take just a bit of getting used to. The ability to toggle the wheel ticks is occasionally amusing if not any more practical than just using another scrolling method such as arrows or page up/down.

Cons: I found it not sensitive enough to recommend use without mouse acceleration. Its 1000 dpi was a noticeable step down from the 1800 dpi of the MX518 it replaced. For example selecting the desired position between two adjacent letters in the same word can be awkward. This makes it not an acceptable gaming mouse.

Other Thoughts: Okay for the price but you only get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this mouse

Pros: - It looks great
- It feels great
- Moves precise and smooth
- I love it's solid construction and weight
- Mouse wheel works perfectly. It isn't too sensitive or insensitive, and you can lock it for that confirming "click" that I prefer or you can unlock it for a perfectly smooth scroll. Also has left-right scrolling.
- Has two side buttons in the perfect position for thumb to access

Cons: I honestly can't think of a con, I love everything about this mouse.

Other Thoughts: I use this mouse for work and I couldn't be happier with it. The design fits my hand perfect and comfortably for prolonged use, and the two side mouse buttons are perfectly accessible by my thumb (I've had other mouses where the side buttons were awkward to reach). I love this mouse so much that I'm probably going to buy another one for gaming when my gaming mouse needs to be replaced.

It's sleek and simple and beautifully efficient.
