Pros: Good for LARGE hands, has a BACK and forward button, Logitech, the receiver fits in the bottom of the mouse by the battery, and the battery life lasts a long long long time.
Cons: I can't think of any whatsoever.
Overall Review: I can't stand a touchpad, good mouse I can put in my bag and pull out anywhere and it works instantly with any PC or MAC laptop so I don't have to use the touchpad. The receiver is perfect size, and won't snag if left installed in a laptop. Perfect.
Pros: - Solid feel, comfortable design
- Enough buttons for most functions
- Exceptionally long battery life- I finally replaced mine for the first time after more than a year
- Accurate, rarely needs cleaning
- As nice or nicer than much more expensive models- I've tried several others to see if I liked them better (Logitech m560, Several Razers, Microsoft this and that, etc etc)... keep coming back to the 510.
Cons: It spoils you. I had to buy one for my work machine too because I couldn't stand using the m560 they bought for me.
Overall Review: All purpose mouse that you won't be disappointed in. You can game with it, work with it, travel with it, etc. It's REALLY cheap for what you get.
For you folks that like to fidget with something when you think- when you set it on a desk upside down, you can spin it with your index finger like a top. For reasons I can't explain, this is very gratifying.
5/5 would recommend.
Pros: This mouse flawlessly works with: WinXP/Vista/7/8, OSX 10.6/7/8, and all flavors of Linux I have tested it with, including my Samsung Chromebook.
Works very well on a variety of surface types.
Battery life is good, even if you leave it turned on for extended periods of time.
Cons: I hate dealing with batteries.
Overall Review: I'm a small biz IT consultant in San Francisco. As such, I don't have vehicle, and must carefully choose those tools which make it into my backpack. After a bit of research and use testing, this was the model I chose. There may be better wireless mice out there, but this one is certainly worth consideration.
The slot for the RF adapter under the battery cover is a must have. No matter which wireless mouse you purchase, make sure it has a space to secure the RF adapter.
Pros: All the mouse buttons are solid, and click fluidly and sturdily. I like the mouse wheels that click, instead of free spin, so this is great for me. The box claims the batteries last for two years, which is certainly impressive. The receiver is small and easily fits into crowded I/O panels. Has good range, I keep mine about 3 feet from the receiver. The two side buttons are great. They let you browse the web faster, acting as a forward and backward button, and in games they can be assigned to all kinds of actions. I use them to cycle weapons in BF3.
Cons: None really. The sensitivity takes some time to adjust to fit you, but this is the same with any new mouse. Also, it only comes in two colors, blue and black. Personally blue is my favorite color, but if you like red then you are out of luck.
Pros: Full-sized mouse
Works on many surfaces
Cons: Mouse wheel seems kinda loose, not really a problem though.
Overall Review: When I first got this mouse it worked flawlessly over nearly any surface. After about a week of use it stopped working so well and had to start using a metal mouse pad on some surfaces. Then it seems it deteriorated more and more and eventually only started working on my bed sheets, not even any of the mouse pads I had. I first thought it was interference from other electronics in the room, but it didn't work in any room correctly. Sending it back would be an absolute last resort. I figured the lens was probably dirty since I did use it on some dusty surfaces. So I kinda got desperate and just sprayed some Windex into the laser and blew in it to dry it. To my surprise, it didn't completely destroy the mouse and it actually worked! So no problems.
Overall Review: Over all it’s a pretty standard wireless mouse. Although the left and right key is a little sensitive, that could be a matter of preference. Nothing truly wrong about the little guy except for the awfully loose scroll wheel. Not only is it loose, the notches that allow you to sense the wheel shifting for each movement are especially insensitive. If you intend to play any video games or don’t want your tumblr pages scrolling too far down then you may want to think twice about this purchase. :/
Pros: - Comfortable mouse, soft rubber pads
- Programmable macros are a plus
- USB connector fits nicely into storage slot in the mouse
- Comes with batteries
Cons: - Disconnects constantly. I can't get it to stay functional for more than ten minutes at a time, and I've pretty much switched back to my wired mouse for how unreliable this one is. I tried changing the batteries and using different USB ports for the bluetooth connector, to no avail. Readjusting the USB stick will get it to work for another five minutes or so before it dips out again. Super frustrating.
Pros: Smooth and precise.
Good battery life.
Fully supported by xorg.
Clamshell packaging had a fairly easy way to open it. (Not exactly a product feature, but was a nice touch.)
Overall Review: I hate wireless mice. I bought this one by accident, not paying sufficient attention to what I was doing.
And now this one is doing its level best to change my mind about wireless mice. It might just succeed.
