Summary: I have mac, purchased this mouse about a month ago. good stuff: - looks good , feels good - you can customise most of the stuff bad stuff: - mouse scrolling has never been worse - movement of the pointer is weird at the end of the day , i am disappointed from this mouse, thinking on getting something else.
Summary: I used to love this mouse. But sadly that has turned to crushing disappointment. Logitech really dropped the ball with Mac support when Mavericks was released. Control Center is useless, as are all of the customizable features on the mouse. No updates. No new drivers. Don't buy Logitech if you own a Mac.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement to my last M500 that died after just over a year - both side (forw/back) buttons quit working within a week, which I could live without, but then the wheel had a mind of it's own a week later. Normally I'd never buy another one after a fiasco like that, but I needed one quickly and since I'm very selective about the feel of my mice I ordered it.
Pros: Wheel has an actual choice of detente instead of stupid free wheeling, good weight, feels natural
Summary: The wheel broke after a week, and has started jumping and spinning around even when not touched, the ratchet has gone as well.I am not a heavy pc user so this is disappointing. I need an ergonomic mouse, corded because of the win 7 issue and wireless mice, and as I have always had Logitec, I chose this, but, no, its going back for a refund and I go back to my old M305 mouse
Summary: pay attention to the reviews noting the issues with the scroll wheel. primarily the left/right side clicking function. be prepared to ignore the ability to use these, as they activate at a hairs touch. at the same time the middle click requires a very firm press to activate. what this means is every time you try to use the middle click, you will be activating one of the side press buttons no matter how precise you try to be.
Summary: Prefer corded - hate changing batteries . . . given that, a corded is needed, but: Windows 7 makes mice "jumpy" -- no matter which Logitech corded I plug in, or what settings I have enabled or disabled, the drivers for Windows 7 Pro don't function like they did in XP Pro. For instance, when you try to position the cursor to re-size a window, it is quite difficult to get a cursor on the line -- and just when you think you have it spot on, and you press the left mouse...
Summary: This is my 2nd M500 mouse in 2.5 years. The first one's left click just died just after a year for no reason, it was falling apart, peeling, the wheel was acting up, etc... The 2nd one while it does have much less cosmetic issues, I've noticed the past couple of week the pointer has been very "jumpy".
Summary: It feels like I'm trying to move this mouse through mud. It's horrible. I've tried different configurations to even several different mouse pads and surfaces to no avail. The accuracy is non existent, the pointer just seems to go wherever it wants. I though the Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 was bad with its scrolling and clicking problems. But that is a lot more tolerable than this.
