4 out of 5 eggsThank goodness for trackballs

Pros: - Thumb-operated trackball which has always been rare

- Very ergonomic design which fits the hand well. I have large hands (size Large to X-Large gloves), and the small size of this mouse is not an issue.

- The "Forward/Back" buttons are perfectly positioned to be completely accessible without interfering with normal use. They also offer two configurable buttons for gamers. Not a lot but handy if you absolutely insist upon a thumb-op trackball.

- Easy to clean. The ball pops right out using the access hole on the bottom, and simply brushing the "gunk" off the three roller balls with a fingernail has kept this mouse going for years.

- Wireless. Need I say more?

- Battery life really is very long. I've had this mouse for about 3 years now, and I only changed the battery once so far. I average 6 hours of computer use each day, and I never turn the power switch on the mouse off. Duracell is good, but not THAT good.

Cons: - The two main buttons are VERY sensitive. I have seen many bad reviews on here for that reason primarily stated as a "double-click" issue, along with click-and-drag issues, etc.. It is true, however it is something you can get used to over time, and it can even be beneficial when you get the feel of it by opening folders, files, programs, etc., with a "long" single click.

- It's not rechargeable. Everything is rechargeable these days, and even batteries that last a year or more are slightly annoying.

Other Thoughts: I love this mouse. I was born in 1977, so I grew up with video games. I actually measure the years of my youth by what video game systems were around at the time, all the way into my late teens. This means, that like so many others of my generation, I have "well-defined thumbs".

Every console system from Atari to Playstation 4 has been primarily thumb-operated, and I personally insist upon a primarily thumb-operated control for my computer. It just feels natural to me, and I am always surprised at how few selections there are for this format. The only other option is the old (July 2000) Microsoft Trackball Optical (which I bought 3 of and used for roughly 10 years), and those sell from $135-$250 new, and $50-$75 used/refurbished. There is obviously demand.

Considering all that, the cons are minimal for this mouse, and I would highly recommend it. I did find the two main buttons to be seriously overly sensitive when I first got the mouse. That is the main issue I have seen mentioned on here, and it is simply due to the fact that the two main buttons are VERY sensitive. This is a common feature added to many fingertip devices at the time like keyboards, dial-pads, etc., and Logitech probably put the wrong tech in the wrong place. Since I will only use thumb-op trackball, I persevered and stuck a couple small pieces of foam rubber under the front edge of the two main buttons for added resistance, and then I put a strip of electrical tape over it. That completely solved the problems for a couple of years. After that the tape fell off and I found I'm used to the mouse anyway. I can even use the "double-click" issue others mention to quickly open things.

Ultimately it sucks that the buttons are too sensitive and some kind of DIY upgrade is needed to make it work really well, but there is no other choice for those who insist upon a thumb-op trackball. Except of course for the 15 year old Microsoft version which is far more expensive.

Then again, maybe the sensitivity of the mouse is perfectly matched to the rest of technology, and the end user is simply lacking the proper motor skills. Like I said, I had a problem with the sensitivity at first like everyone else, but after years of modification and then normal use it is no longer an issue.

I'm going off on a tangent here, but let's face it, the "normal" mouse is sadly reminiscent of the old wheel and cart technology of ancient times. When using a "normal" mouse, I always think of tiny oxen pulling that "mouse-cart". I mean seriously, I have to pull this device around on a wheel to operate this state-of-the-art device?

I'm rambling, so I do apologize for that, but this really is a great mouse. For anyone like me who insists upon thumb-op trackball, this will work.

3 out of 5 eggsNot quite the same Logitech

Pros: comfortable, no cord, reasonable price

Cons: Mediocre build quality

Other Thoughts: I've purchased numerous Logitech products over the years, including keyboards, mice, trackballs, and even the excellent Squeezebox classic music player. The designs are still
quite good, especially the ergonomics of this trackball, but the build quality has clearly suffered from cost cutting measures. My old Logitech trackball is smooth and the buttons have a nice solid feel and sound. The new version is not nearly as smooth, and has hollow feeling buttons and scroll wheel. The buttons and scroll wheel even have a low quality "sound" to them when activated. At this price point, I think this is probably as good as it gets, but I'm disappointed that Logitech quality is not what it once was.

3 out of 5 eggsSticky

Pros: It offers the same superior comfort as the rest of the trackman marble predecessors. The unifying transmitter is excellent at controlling my keyboard and trackball with no noticeable latency. The battery life is excellent even using it 9 to 10 hours a day it lasts for months. I've used Logitech trackballs for decades and love the space savings.

Cons: The ball suffers from a large amount stiction between the ball and it's rests. I thought in time it would pass after a break in period as i saw this in a previous model. I use it for gaming a lot and it has gotten so bad that i'm going to be forced to go to using a mouse. (not a Logitech) yes i cleaned the ball and contacts repeatedly. It's a shame really as there isn't a lot of space on the hospital tray i have my keyboard and monitors on.

Other Thoughts: It's such a shame that trackball users are so neglected in the computer market.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this thing

Pros: Comfortable design. Fits my hand really well.

Cons: Cheaply built. Double clicking issues. When there are youtube videos showing you how to disassemble the mouse and solder on newer, better parts... it is time to look somewhere else.

Other Thoughts: Seriously, dont buy this thing. Logitech has never let me down before, so I am assuming this is a fluke, but we bought 5 of them and all of them failed after a few months.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat happened to Logitech

Pros: Smooth operation, trackball removal easy for cleaning, wireless is nice

Cons: Cheap Switches.
after a few months it starts double clicking when you don't want it too

Other Thoughts: The switches in the mouse started double clicking after a few months of use. Sometimes taking the battery out and holding the buttons to discharge the capacitors helps but the double click starts up again shortly after. Logitech used to make Great reliable products but after buying two of these I'm starting to wish another company would build a reliable trackball.

3 out of 5 eggsUsed to be great, going downhill

Pros: The design is solid. The reprogramming of buttons works flawlessly, the software (on Windows) isn't constantly begging for attention. I've owned some form of this mouse for 15 years, starting with the corded Trackman Marble.

Cons: It's a little small for my hand.

The killer, though, is the cheap microswitches in the main buttons, leading to sporadic loss of contact when you're trying to double-click or click-and-drag. Their production process and Q&A has really gone downhill.

Other Thoughts: This isn't worth $60 anymore, not when the buttons wear out so quickly. I wish I could find a decent competing product, because I'd switch to it in a heartbeat. I'm sad that I can't find a good thumb-trackball these days.

Having owned my current M570 for about a year, the unreliable clicking means it's time to go shopping again. This time I doubt I'll buy a Logitech again.
