  1. M. Head

    I had the earlier, non-Bluetooth version of this mouse for 12 years and would still be using it were it not for the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity and a new computer with a rotten trackpad. While the ball of the mouse does eventually become dirty with lint and finger oils, it can be easily popped from the orifice with a push of a pencil eraser and cleaned, then the orifice, which contains the pointing sensors, can be quickly and very gently wiped with an alcohol pad, followed by a tissue, concentrating on the pointing sensors to remove buildup that gets into them, and will restore its tight tracking. This is what the reviewer who complained of the mouse not tracking left to right should have done. The rollerball is an excellent size and very sensitive, as well as sensibly priced for its features. Two auxiliary keys and a center roller wheel add useful functionality.

    This is my fourth Logitec trackball, and I love them. Even this one is mostly good…..unless you plan to connect it directly via Bluetooth, and not go through the included dongle.

    Using the dongle, connection is rock solid, buttery smooth and it’s very nice to use.

    Connecting directly via Bluetooth, though, as you might if you’re trying to save ports (I have an M1 MacBook Air), is just this side of useless. It is glitchy, lags, stutters and is almost unusable for precision work (photo/video editing, or even gaming where speed and accuracy are desired). I bought this to replace an M570 because I wanted direct Bluetooth connection to free up a USB port. That plan has failed. I could use it in an emergency, or if I temporarily didn’t need the graphics tablet going into the port I needed to free up, but that defeats the purpose of this attempted upgrade.

    If you want a nice trackball with a USB dongle connection, this is a solid choice. If you thought you were going to use Bluetooth, though, you’ll be disappointed.

    Totally changed how I work. Less stress on the body. Completely ergonomic and increased efficiency. It makes working on a computer a pleasure. Only took 10 minutes to learn. Amazing. Goes down as one of my best investments.

    I have had a number of logitech products over the years and always liked them for good design and easy installation. This trackball meets that standard. I was up and running in five minutes. This is my first trackball ever and it’s very comfortable to not have to move a mouse around plus the combination of the center scroll (the default, can be customized) plus my custom choices to zoom in/out for the small additional buttons really improves efficiency over the native trackpad. I’m doing work that requires repetitive clicking into text and it has immediately made a big difference in speed and comfort. I worked for three hours with steady clicks and my hand/arm didn’t get tired at all.

    This has saved my hand! I work from home and I spend hours on the computer writing papers. I started having some numbness and muscle spasms in my hand. I was using a basic mouse from Staples and my apple keyboard. I ditched those items and upgraded for an ergonomically mouse with a ball. This is my first time using it and it takes a little bit to get used to but it made all the world a difference. All you do is use your thumb to move the ball that controls your cursor. My hand feels so much better. If you have hand cramps this is the perfect mouse for you.

    I developed a pain on the top of my hand between the first and 2nd fingers earlier this year and thought it was arthritis, but nope.. it was fatigue from Apple’s magic trackpad. The Magic Mouse was better, but I could foresee pain in my wrist on the horizon from moving the mouse around constantly, so I opted for this and the pain is gone. It’s got a slight learning curve in using the track ball and mouse button at the same time to select areas for screen capture, but that will go away with experience. I’ve have no problem with bluetooth connection as a previous reviewer indicated. Too early to tell about the battery life.

  7. LD 825571

    It took me a few days to get used to the buttons I needed to click to get this mouse to do what I want, but overall, I love it. It’s quiet, efficiently moves the cursor around the screen and all the buttons work as expected. If I were to criticize anything, it’d be that the mouse seems to be a bit larger for my hand than I’d like, but certainly works well as-is.

    I work at my office a lot and found that having to move a normal mouse affected my wrist greatly. (I have acute carpet tunnel). I decided to opt for a roller ball mouse after going through reviews and options.

    I have had this mouse for over a year now, and have found that my wrist pains have greatly reduced. I beleive that a part of this had to do with switching to this mouse. It still works great. Almost like it is new. I find most mice I have tried in the past, the texture of the mouse or paint tend to flake or wear down. Cleaning hasn’t been a huge issue. I notice deadskin or dust builds up near the bottom after a while. But it is easy to clean. Though I wonder if there is a way to open it up to see if there’s and dust and gunk that may have built up inside.

    Extra note: I have fairly small hands. I didn’t have to much issues gripping onto this mouse.

    Highly reccomend overall.

    This mouse is exacting and saves my hands. It’s an easy trackball operation which I never knew what I was missing with rolling that mouse around. never again. This is exact, never loses connectivity, lasts a long time and I have bought a second one for travel. Love it!

    I had the old M570 (dark grey model with blue trackball) for 5 years before I lost it, otherwise I would still have it. As I was ready to purchase the M570 again without hesitation I found that a new model was available and with a few new features that I definitely wanted, the Bluetooth function that quickly allows me to use a wide range of laptops, computers and tablets with the Bluetooth function. It’s very quick to pick up the signal and very easy to sync onto any system which was a great addition as I recently purchased a new MAC laptop and it’s easier to get the mouse to work via Bluetooth than pulling out a USB-C to USB adapter as most new computers are doing away with the USB dongles.

    Overall, it’s a great upgrade and I love the colour. Should I be lucky and by crazy luck I find my old mouse I will be able to see the difference between the two as the new model is a cool beige/cream colour with a blue trackball. Overall, a new fresh look to a great mouse. I was pleasantly pleased with the seller as the package arrived quicker than anticipated. I highly recommend the product and the seller.

    I used a M570 for years and loved it. It eventually wore down over time and I had to replace it. Probably 6 years ago I decided to go with the MX Master. I stuck with those, and upgraded over the last several years to a Master 2s, and a Master 3. The Master 3 is a great mouse, and has some unique features that make it hard to part with. Namely, the scroll wheel, how it’s notched but can spin freely if you flick it (more on this later). I’ve been getting into more ergonomic keyboards for health reasons, and I’ve settled on a mechanical split ortholinear keyboard that allows for “tenting,” which means you can tilt the two halves up to match your natural wrist position. The problem is, since keeping the two keyboard halves around shoulder width is recommended, normal mice don’t work well in this scenario. You either have to move it to the middle, between the two halves, or leave it on the outside in which case you’re reaching farther to use your mouse. Both are not ideal and it counters the health benefits of using a split ortho keyboard in the first place.

    Time to go back to the trackball! I had missed my trackball days anyway. First off, why didn’t I go with the MX ERGO? I’m obviously ok dropping $100 on a mouse. Here’s why – 1) I refuse to buy a device that is still using Micro USB. It’s old, outdated, and Logi needs to put USB-C in that one. I feel like they might have an updated version of that in the works, so I wanted to hold off on the MX-series trackball for now. 2) If I’m spending as much as the MX Master 3, it should have 3 BT profiles. Another update in the works for Logi (I would hope…).

    Before landing on the M575, I tried a Kensington Expert and a Slimblade. The expert is garbage, the Slimblade could be acceptable in certain use cases, but overall Kensington didn’t fit the bill for me. Back to Logi!

    Enter the M575. Yes, it only has 1 BT profile, but that’s ok for me, and here’s why – I have a personal computer, and a work computer in my home office. They share a USB switch with a button that I push to swap my keyboard\mouse between the two. It’s mounted under my desk. The rf transmitter works perfectly here and I don’t even see it. My other “on the go” computer is a Surface, which I use the BT profile for. It works out perfectly, and I make full use of all the connection profiles available which satisfies some strange OCD in me.

    Last but not least, I’ll mention build quality and how I am managing to cope with losing the famous scroll wheel on the MX Master 3. Build quality is actually really good. I thought it would feel significantly cheaper, but I did not get that impression at all. I think this is about as well built a mouse can get, especially for the price. Next, my beloved scrolling! Set a button (via Logitech Options) to be a “Gesture” button, and set it to “pan.” Problem solved. Now you can hold down the button and flick the trackball to scroll up/down or left/right. I use the middle mouse button for it, and get this… Still works for middle mouse button things, like opening links in a new tab.

    In conclusion, I am now able to have my trackball very close the the right half of my split keyboard, and stationary so I’m not stretching to use a mouse. It honestly fit in with my workflow from day 1. I may upgrade if Logi comes out with a more modernized MX ERGO someday, but maybe not for a few years. The M575 does what I need, and I’m happy with it. I recommend trying it!

    This thing is impossible to use for precise cursor placement. Instead of being able to move a mouse around on the surface, you are forced to try and use your single thumb digit to roll a ball and put the cursor where you want it. Goofy concept, poor execution, returned it after struggling for a whole afternoon. Why does Logitech come out with such poor products all the time? One of life’s big mysteries I think

  13. ATQL

    My wrist and forearm had been hurting for a few weeks, to the point where moving a regular mouse put me in enough pain to stop focusing on work. I didn’t think this design of mouse would make such a big and instant difference but I’m very pleased that it did. My pain dropped by a lot after using this mouse for a day and now I don’t feel pain at all.

    It took only a couple of sessions to get used to. Perhaps it’s not the greatest mouse if you have a widescreen monitor or need the pointer to travel great distances in one scroll, since the scroll is limited by the movement of your thumb. However, that’s a minor tradeoff for me for not getting pains in my wrist/forearm. I also really liked that the inside packaging was cardboard…way better than plastic clamshell as it can be easily recycled. The mouse is also aesthetically pleasing (imo). I thought the matte white plastic would look cheap, but the molding makes it look like a quality product.

    Great job Logitech and thank you for saving my right arm!
