Excerpt: The last two Logitech mice stopped tracking accurately after 6-9 months (this M500 and a cordless one), and the cordless one double or triple clicks for every single click. And cleaning the mice and surface has no effect.
Summary: 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.
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.
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...
Cons: Badly designed and cheaply made. The scroll wheel feels like already broken, and creates very unsettling feeling of a lose part. The mouse is extremely over sensitive on movements, and even the slightest move results in it jumping from one end of the desktop to the other. Even after lowering the ...
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.
Summary: try another brand gigabit see what happens
Pros: worked great for 5 months,i have owned 3 m500 this is the third one i will not buy any more,first 1 lasted 12 months,second mouse lasted about 8 months,third mouse lasted 5 months. whats the forth one going to last? why waste my time with this model
Cons: worked great for 5 months then right click stopped working.not worth sending it in for warranty
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.
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...
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.
