    I’ve had this mouse for 5 years and it’s still going strong. It has traveled with me daily in my bag for sometime and managed to withstand standard commuter wear and tear as well as the occasional drop.

    I’ve used this for gaming as well as work and it is more than suitable for both purposes.
    It feels great in my hand and the parts and finishes (including the grips on the sides) have aged nicely so far.

    It is now enjoying semi-retirement as my home laptop mouse.

    Esse mouse é um daqueles produtos que podem durar anos usando sem necessidade de upgrade. O tamanho é perfeito para minhas mãos (que são grandes). A duração da bateria é excelente (muitos e muitos meses, nem lembro quando troquei). Existem botões de funções auxiliares como Voltar e Avançar … são muito úteis num navegador de internet quando a gente acostuma com elas. O botão de rolagem é extremamente preciso, e funciona em diversas superfícieis sem necessidade de ajustes.

    Enfim, não conheço mouse melhor que esse. Vale cada centavo.

    Less than 6 months after purchase, the left button began double clicking on single press. Tried updating Logitech software and changing USB ports. Even tried a different Unifying receiver that came with a different Logitech product with no improveiment.

    Amazon product support redirects you to Logitech. Logitech website does not accept customer support or warranty claim online. Tried calling Logitech, but keeps hanging up after 30min of being on hold. Instuructions to leave a voicemail. Seems like there are no options to exercise the 3yr limited warranty that was promised.

    It’s unfortunate, I have had good experience with Logitech in the past, but the issue and the lack of support for this product will make me look at alternatives for a replacement.

    Taken from my original review, posted here: http://headphonehub.blogspot.com/2015/08/logitech-m510-wireless-mouse-review.html

    The M510 is a mid-priced wireless mouse from Logitech that I personally purchased for use with my laptop when I am on the go. I wanted something reasonably priced that was full-sized, had a few additional buttons, great battery life, and a minimum of a 1,000-dpi sensor that I could use for light gaming and video editing on my laptop. The Logitech M510 delivers on all of these points, and has thus far proved to work well for my usage.

    The M510 is a full-sized mouse, not one of those dinky mini-mice that I see a lot of people using with their laptops on the go. I am used to a full-sized, relatively ergonomic mouse at home (I use a CM Storm Inferno for my primary at-home wired mouse) and after using that mouse I can’t bear going back to something as small and non-ergonomic as those mini-mice. Speaking of non-ergonomic, my previous mouse for use on the go was a spare Apple Magic Mouse that I had lying around. In many areas Apple makes great products. Mice however, is not one of them. The Magic Mouse utilized a slow 800-dpi sensor and is extremely non-ergonomic. I use a palm grip with my mice, and the Magic Mouse doesn’t doesn’t really allow for such a grip by design. It also uses bluetooth to wirelessly connect to my laptop, which is all fine and good (and many prefer this method of connectivity) however, bluetooth wireless devices seem to burn through battery power far faster than non-bluetooth wireless devices in my experience. Enter the M510. It’s a full-size mouse in an ergonomic shape. While it’s not quite as large as my CM Storm Inferno, it’s big enough to be comfortable to use for hours on end. There is no disputing Logitech’s “full-size” description. I would say that I have medium sized hands, and I can palm grip this mouse quite comfortably.

    The textured rubberized material on the sides (where the thumb and pinky finger typically rest) is also a nice design choice, as it feels like thick, quality rubber material that isn’t going to wear off after a year (like my at-home mouse). The remaining portions of the mouse are constructed from dark grey and silver glossy plastic, that somehow manages to remain glossy and not become a fingerprint magnet. The overall weight of the mouse is fairly light (around .06 oz), even with the added weight of the batteries. While I prefer a somewhat weighty mouse in general, for on the go it’s fine and weighs around what my wired at-home mouse weighs anyway.

    The M510 connects wireless to your device using an extremely small USB “unifying receiver.” It is called a unifying receiver because you can connect multiple wireless Logitech devices to one receiver, negating the need for having multiple receivers for each wireless device plugged into your computer, taking up all your free USB ports. You could, for example, connect both your wireless Logitech mouse and keyboard to one receiver. The receiver is extremely small, and barely protrudes out from the USB port it is inserted into. This is a nice design, as you can essentially leave the receiver in your laptop’s USB port and forget about it, as it’s so small you don’t need to remove it when sliding your laptop into a bag, for example. If you don’t want to keep the receiver permanently attached to your laptop, there is an area where you can store the receiver inside the mouse itself, right next to the batteries. A caveat of the receiver is that in my testing it does not have nearly the range that my bluetooth wireless Apple Magic Mouse did. Despite this, the mouse will operate flawlessly if used within any reasonable radius of the receiver. Another obvious downside is that the receiver method uses up a USB port, and for us USB starved Mac laptop users, that leaves us with only one remaining USB port. The upshot of the whole use of the USB receiver is that the connectivity method uses substantially less power than connecting via bluetooth. Logitech claims that the M510 gets two years of battery life, which is incredible compared to the few months (with light usage) my previous bluetooth mouse got. The M510 takes two standard AA batteries, and comes preinstalled with two quality Duracell’s which is really nice to see.

    The M510 has an on/off switch located on the underside of the mouse, and the mouse reconnects to the computer extremely quickly after being turned back on. You also don’t have to worry about draining your battery power when leaving the mouse in the on position, as the M510 appears to go into some kind of low power state when in “on” mode, but not in use. You really can just pop two batteries in this thing and forget about it.

    Left and right click feel is great, with nice tactile feedback and a highly audible click. There are a total of seven buttons on the mouse. Obviously left and right click, forward and backward buttons on the lefthand side of the mouse, and the scroll wheel, which can be depressed downward or moved left or right for horizontal scrolling. (Note: I didn’t include the vertical scrolling action of the scroll wheel as a button). All of the buttons feel solid and have good tactile feedback, although the forward and backward buttons on the lefthand side of the mouse do feel a tad bit mushy (but still let out and audible click when fully depressed, nonetheless). I love the inclusion of the left and right horizontal scrolling action achieved by moving the scroll wheel left or right, it really helps when navigating sideways through webpages that are too large for a smaller laptop screen. Scroll wheel feel is good, and it is the “notched” feeling wheel that most mice use and is not completely linear.

    The mouse uses a laser sensor, with a resolution of 1,000-dpi. Overall tracking is pretty good, and seems relatively smooth. It’s still not as smooth or jitter-free as the much higher DPI optical sensor in my CM Storm Inferno, but that’s somewhat to be expected. I noticed that when moving to the extreme or outside of the M510’s 10-meter operating range that the tracking quality significantly worsened, with more cursor jitter and laggy performance. If you find that tracking is less than ideal with this mouse, make sure you are using it within the appropriate range of the receiver. When inside the appropriate range, the tracking substantially improved and was far better than the tracking I was used too with my previous wireless mouse. There is a little bit of cursor jitter upon setting the mouse back down on whatever surface you are using it on. If you are the “slide and lift” type of mouse user, you may find this slightly irritating. I pick my mouse up frequently and place it back down on my mouse pad when tracking, and I quickly became used to the little stutter the cursor has when using the mouse this way. It’s an extremely small cursor movement, but noticeable nonetheless. In addition, this mouse does not work with very light surfaces, glass or granite countertops. It does work with the darker wood grain color of my desk however. I would recommend using a mouse pad if your desk or tracking area isn’t on the darker side. Other than these few minor issues, the mouse does track very well, and performs more than adequately for the current price of around $25 to $30 dollars. (The full retail price is $40 dollars, according to Logitech’s website)

    If you are looking for a reasonably priced full-size wireless use for use with your laptop on-the-go, or even if you want something permanent for your desktop that won’t break the bank, the Logitech M510 should definitely enter into your considerations. With two year battery life, quality buttons, a solid build and good tracking, the M510 is definitely a high quality peripheral that should last for years.

  5. 🇺🇦 Stand With Ukraine 🇺🇦

    Logitech nailed it again. I had a previous model of this mouse and I was happy to find that the current model even more comfortable.
    Forward and backward button are much more convenient to control.
    The tiny USB stick sits neatly and tightly on the side of my laptop.
    The medium size of the mouse is just perfect for my hand.
    The on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse is an asset.
    The installation is a breeze.

    primeiro perguntem para a Amazon porque ela indexa minhas fotos SEMPRE viradas do lado errado 🤦🏻‍♀️

    recebi hoje. é um mouse robusto e parte do seu peso vem do par de pilhas. é extremamente bem construído, bonito e visualmente parece muito confiável.
    a conexão quando conectado no PC é imediata, sem nenhum problema. é possível ainda instalar o Logitech Options™ para dar novas funções para os botões, extras ou não, que por padrão vêm definidos como avançar e retroceder.
    é um mouse grande, como a própria embalagem informa e eu mostro aqui num comparativo com mouse da mesma marca porém modelo M170. pra minha mão o M510 é grande quase sendo desconfortável, mas quase.
    para mim, foi uma ótima compra. performance superior ao que eu esperava, já que uso para jogos e tinha lido alguns reviews ruins mas não se aplicaram aqui já que não jogo FPS.

    I have purchased several of these mice over the last 5 years and continue to do so. It is a good mouse with long battery life and an off switch, but looses points because they fail after 9 months of daily use.

    Size: 4 Stars
    The mouse is a bit longer than most, but smaller than many of the ‘ergonomic’ mice. It fits my larger hands comfortably which many smaller mice don’t. My wife has smaller hands and finds it comfortable to use. I have several young children and they have no problems with it either. the mouse is pleasantly symmetrical, and while nice to look at and fit in smaller pockets, my hand is not symmetrical. I have a thumb on one side and a pinky on the other. I would say like most people, but I haven’t met most people. this leaves your ring finger kind of hanging and your pinky to rest on whatever surface you are using the mouse on. If you were to pull your pinky into the thumb groove, it would cramp. You may think this symmetry makes it good for lefties, and while my wrong handed sister says it is the most comfortable right handed mouse she has ever used, the extra forward and back thumb buttons are on the other side, making them awkward to operate for a leftie who has to use her ring finger. Something she assures me she could get used to, but in order to she’d have to get her own dang mouse and stop stealing mine.

    Connection and Laser: 5 Stars
    The mouse connects to a nano receiver that connects to any USB port. It is NOT Bluetooth (this is good, it doesn’t have paring issues like Bluetooth). The connection is good and the movement smooth. Other wireless mice suffer from an issue where they go into standby after a few seconds and don’t catch the initial movement when you start using the mouse again. Not this one. This mouse will track on any surface I have used it on and moves smoothly. I have used as many as 5 of them in the same room at the same time with no ill effects or ‘cross talk’. I have read that there is a way to connect a mouse to a different nano receiver, but I have not tried or messed with this and have also heard that posting a legal notice on your Facebook wall will protect your copyright and privacy rights, so who knows just don’t lose the tiny receiver, there is a storage space for it in the battery compartment. Also, don’t store it in the battery compartment and forget you put it there and tear your house apart looking for it. Finally, the optic is invisible so no red light or blinding death laser shoots out the bottom.

    Durability: 3 Stars
    I am not easy on my mice. Neither are my children. I have a work laptop and a personal laptop. Both have their own mouse (different colors thank you Logitech). My work one gets used 50 hours a week or so but only on a desk and rarely gets dropped. My work mouse tends to last 9 months before buttons start double clicking. My personal mouse gets used less, but still several hours a week and it is used on every surface in the house, couch, bed, dog, desk, wood grain table, pant leg, child’s diapered bottom, carpet, wall, glass stove top (while stove top is off), tile wall, leg without pants, wife’s back, bottom of shoe (ineffective, yes), and on rare occasion, a mouse pad. My personal mouse is dropped, thrown, used as a shield defending from a wife slap, drooled on, and occasionally kicked. When not in use it sits in a bag that gets thrown around with regularity. This one usually lasts 7-8 months before buttons stop clicking (or double clicking) or the laser stops reading as many surfaces. My media center has a mouse that is used very sparingly, a few minutes each day starting or ending a show. When a previous mouse did 7 months with me and the laser started getting picky with surfaces, we moved it to the low use media center mouse. This mouse has lasted in this position for more than a year without getting any worse. So I firmly believe that this is an over use/abuse issue. It is worth noting that I have owned and used other mice from Microsoft and HP and Dell, and none of them lasted so long.

    Battery Life: 5 Stars
    The mouse takes 2 AA batteries (and puts them facing the same direction ick) and they last a while. the cavity is large enough to accommodate slightly larger rechargeable batteries of you use them. My 2 mice are turned off when not in use but experience heavy use and the included Duracell batteries last generally longer than the mice. My wife’s mouse sits on all the time and gets moderate to heavy use and her batteries last more than 6 months. There is a nice little strip of plastic built in that when you pull on it, the batteries pop up, this is a nice extra feature for changing batteries so you don’t have to jam a butter knife in there to get them out, then slip and rake your finger with the jagged edge and pathetically explain to your wife how you managed to cut yourself with a butter knife and watch as she hides the scissors.

    Weird light on top: 3 Stars
    There is a weird light on top. It turns on when you turn the mouse on, reassuring you that the mouse is, in fact, on. This saves you from the gut wrenching anxiety of wondering if the batteries are dead every time you turn it on, only the batteries last forever… The light turns off after a couple of seconds to not waste battery power. It’s nice, but not necessary. Also, I think I remember it flashing angry red at me after it got thrown across the room one time, so this may be the mouse’s primary method of communication and who am I to silence it.

    Noise: 5 Stars
    The mouse is whisper quiet. I am usually unable to tell if it is on or not by sound alone. There is a light and satisfying click sound when clicking either button or turning the switch on and off. Usually whatever I am using for a surface for the mouse makes far more noise than the mouse itself.

    Off Switch: 5 Stars
    It works. there is a small ridge in the middle offering enough friction to easily turn the switch on or off and there is a colored pad under the switch so you can see a bit of red when off and green when on. This is useful because the words for on and off are etched on and can only be seen if you catch the light just right.

    A very responsive wireless mouse that I use for 3D related programs and software (e.g Autodesk Maya, Mari, Zbrush etc). While I like using it and haven’t encountered any problems, I take a few issues to it.

    1. The middle mouse button is harder to press, and that can be a bit of a downfall especially for those who rely on it heavily when using 3D related programs. It isn’t a huge drawback though, and I get by with it just fine. Just note that it is a bit on the stiff side, and if you absolutely need an easily clickable middle mouse button, this might not be the best option

    2. This mouse is rather heavy, and that’s primarily because it requires two AA batteries to keep it going to make up for the non-wired connection. Obviously, all that extra weight affects the ergonomics and general usage. It’s not a lightweight by any means, but once again, not a big deal for most. It was just a noticeable difference from my old mouse, which was much lighter by comparison.

    3. From what I can tell, the DPI is set. You can change the cursor speed, rendering it less sensitive or more sensitive depending on your settings, but you can’t actually change the DPI itself.

    at the moment, these were the only drawbacks I noticed right off the bat. I have yet to change my review the longer I use it, but for now, it’s a pretty good mouse for the price. It’s responsive, has really satisfying buttons which are apparently all customizable (I have yet to look into that), and it has a nice ergonomic shape with rubber sidings. It also has really nice rubber feet which could prove to be useful for various surfaces.

    Final Verdict: It’s an ergonomic friendly mouse with extra customizable buttons that are really satisfying to click. Good for long usage and for those who use 3D related programs or general use. However, it’s heavy, has a stiff middle mouse button and has no option to change the DPI. Regarding the battery life, only time with tell after using this mouse longer.
