  1. Patrick J. Price II

    I first bought this mouse in 2011. Genuinely, the only reason I even needed to buy a new one is because the old one got run over by a car after falling from my bag (and still worked a little bit! Not for long, but it did still work).

    I cannot pretend this is the highest precision mouse, or the best gaming mouse, or whatever. But for 95% of what most people need, this will just work. It is reliable and you won’t have an issue with it.

    As somone who works from home and easily spends 12+ hours a day on a computer, I go so long without needing to change the batteries that I couldn’t even tell you how long they last. Easily 6 months or more. Having swappable batteries for something like this is a plus in my book, I can’t imagine a rechargable lithium battery would still be giving me a charge like that after 10 years.

    A great wireless mouse for your laptop or desktop. Perfect for any user with modest size hands, this mouse works well for both my wife and I. Very responsive for normal use, but I have not used this with action games. A typical set of 2 alkaline AA’s will last many months (more than 8) and the convenient power switch on the base helps with long battery life. The M510 mouse also works well with rechargeable NiMH batteries.

    This is the fourth M510 I have bought. The first failed after about 7 years; the left button started to “bounce”. Each press would produce two or three “select” actions. One was for a friend and one for my wife. Those are still going strong. This purchase replaced the original, 7 year old M510. I like the M510 enough to buy the same model.

    Highly recommended if you can use a compact mouse.

    I really appreciate the full size of this mouse. Too often wireless mouses (mice?) are too small for someone with normal to a little larger hands. It’s like the manufacturer thinks wireless needs to mean small.

    This mouse is just the right size and has adequate features for the kinds of things you want a mouse to do if you are doing sort of “typical” work with it – spreadsheets, presentations, word-processing, coding, etc.

    It’s probably not ideal if you need a bunch of features for gaming, or maybe if you have some sort of carpal tunnel issues as it’s not a new-fangled ergonomic type of device.

  4. Amazon Customer

    Just thought I’d add my five stars to the list. I hesitated about ordering it because $50 is a lot of money for a mouse, but I’m glad I didn’t go for something cheap that might have to be returned. It’s a perfect replacement for my now-deceased Microsoft mouse. The Logitech mouse is comfortable in my largish arthritic hands, although the MS mouse was slightly larger and more ideal. It was nice to see that Logitech put Duracell batteries into their mouse instead of the usual no-name brands that don’t last and may leak.

    Don’t forget, the USB connector is *inside* the battery compartment, to the left of the batteries. It’s quite small but pulls right out. Plug it into your computer and wait for Windows to set it up. If you don’t like the mouse cursor speed or the double-click speed, go to Settings in Windows. Poke around until you find the screen for mouse settings. It’s all there, but you may have to click a few links to find everything.

    I’d recommend this mouse.

    I (and my family) have been through several of these over the years. When one starts to wear out, I just order a new one. Colors and textures may vary in newer iterations, but these mice are just a great workhorse for those who spend many hours a day on the computer. Not too big or too small. I really like the thumb buttons for triggering forward/back operations like in a browser. The scroll wheel tilt works well for panning around a zoomed document or image. Scrolling is smooth with a slight tactile feel. I don’t do serious gaming, so I can’t speak to that aspect. For what I do, the responsiveness is just fine. Oh, and I don’t replace them because they break. They just get worn out on the surfaces either the bottom from sliding around or the areas that get the most finger action.

    I have been writing programing starting about 1990 and have had 100s of mice. With the back and forward buttons next to my thumb it saves me tons of time and has helped with carpal tunnel. I may never get any other type again. I have 4 of them now for my computers and tablets and have had at least 20 others that I have used to death over the years after I found this model. I don’t have to buy one now but I will just incase one stops working

    The Logitech M510 wireless mouse is a very comfortable and smoothly performing mouse. It is a full size mouse that nicely fills up the palm of the hand. The weight of the mouse is “just right”. The mouse body is symmetrical so that will be equally comfortable for left or right handed people.

    The mouse movement and scroll wheel work perfectly smoothly with no jump or jitter. The mouse optical performance is very robust on poor surfaces. It works equally well on a mousepad, a bare table, on a pants leg, back of a book, even the palm of the hand. It tracks perfectly on almost any surface (which many other mouse brands have trouble with).

    These mice use the Logitech “Unifying” USB mini receiver which can support up to six Logitech devices by itself. If you have a Logitech mouse, keyboard, trackball, etc… they can all operate from the same receiver (saves using up USB ports). Be aware that the unifying receiver ONLY works with Logitech products and that it is NOT Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Logitech products can be “paired” with the unifying receiver in Windows and MAC (of course) and also in Linux by using the software package called “solaar” (free, open source). The mouse comes pre-paired to the receiver, so it works “out of the box”. If you want to add (up to 5 more devices), you have to pair them yourself.

    The battery life is awesome. Because I hate leaking batteries, I always use AA lithium cells for everything (including the mouse). My first old Logitech MS-510 mouse that I purchased over three years ago is still working fine on the FIRST batteries that I installed in it (two AA lithium). Since I use it on my desktop the mouse power switch is always left on. It must consume practically no power when not being used.

    If you use the mouse with a laptop or need to move it from computer to computer, the little unifying receiver can be stored inside the mouse (in a little USB sized slot next to the batteries) to avoid losing it.

    What follows is some technical information that you can skip if you don’t care.

    Construction: This mouse is very nicely engineered and can be completely disassembled by removing two little screws inside the battery compartment. No screws hide under the teflon slider pads, so those don’t get damaged if you take the mouse apart. Every component then can be removed simply by sliding or snapping it out. Why take it apart? See next.

    My personal feeling is that the left and right mouse buttons are too light (i.e. press too easily). The buttons are no lighter than other mice, I just prefer them a bit tighter. To change this, I replace the two little microswitches with Omron Series D2F-01 parts that have a 150 gf actuation force. It takes about twice the pressure to click these switches as compared to the originals. To replace them is super simple: Just unsolder the originals and solder the new ones in place. If you forget which way they go in, the orientation is printed on the PC board.

    The side “scroll” buttons already use heavier pressure microswitches, so I don’t change these. The “middle button” (pressing the scroll wheel) and the left/right scroll switches (rock the scroll wheel left or right) are a different type of switch that also do not need changing.

    If you disassemble the mouse, be aware that the little plastic slider for the power switch will be free to fall out when the mouse PC board is removed. If you don’t know this, it’s possible for the slider to silently fall out, never to be seen again.

    I won’t tell you HOW to unsolder and resolder the button microswitches, because if you don’t know how, you shouldn’t be doing jt in the first place (or get an electronics-knowledgable friend to help). And, of course opening and modifying the mouse will void the warranty!

    I will give you one important hint: Because the mouse was assembled using RoHS compliant lead free solder, the microswitch solder joints should first be RE-SOLDERED with leaded solder before sucking or wicking the joints clean. This is done to “alloy” the high temperature lead free solder into more manageable leaded solder to avoid burning/ruining the (single sided) PC board.

    Good luck! This mouse (hacked or not) gets 5 stars and both thumbs up. It works flawlessly, it’s comfortable, battery life is amazing and the price is good (even better when it’s sometimes on sale). Grab one!

    I have been a logi fan for years! When it comes to a wireless mouse, I will not buy any other. I have tried other mice in the past, but they just don’t seem to hold up as long as a logi mouse does. I love the design and how it fits my hand just right. I had one that it took me over 3 years before it stop working correctly. I knew I could find another one here on Amazon. They take a lot of rough handling on my part and still keep working. I find them totally worth the price.

    I would have given five stars except for the lack of support from Logitec. The box says that the buttons are programmable but do not explain how to do this. The tiny manual that comes with just talks about inserting/replacing the battery and how to install the USB reciever. And,of course, ‘saftey’ instructions. I went on the Logitec site and looked for programming info and found nothing. I contacted Logitec and exchanged numerous eMails and just kept getting the useless instructions that came with the box. Finally the last eMail gave me directions to some program that they wanted me to install on my computer. No info on what the program was. I declined to do this. — BOTTOM LINE — Mouse = 5 stars. … Logitec support = 0 stars.

    I’m running Linux (Arch) and the basic features you’d expect worked fine right out of the box… plugged in the USB Unifying Receiver and I could double or triple click to copy then click the mouse scroll wheel to paste. The scroll wheel also clicks left and right to scroll left and right. The thumb buttons, forward and back, worked fine. Feels great for a wireless mouse for travel. I’m used to the Logitech G500s and love how it fills the palm of my hand, this is pretty close to that and welcomed for when I’m stuck using laptops, which I hate.

    I’m annoyed the Logitech Store listing says “Linux” in its listing but then the first thing you do is go to logitech.com/options, step #1 on the box, only to be faced with “There are no Downloads for this Version.” when trying to find the download for your OS. It’s MacOS or Windows, that’s it. So no customizing options for Linux users.

    My Logitech K480 wireless keyboard (which I love) won’t work with the USB Unifying Receiver. Different wireless technology, I should have verified that first. Not a deal-breaker, just a minor inconvenience. Logitech’s site says it is supported for “F-Key Customization” and “Notification & Status” not sure how yet. Apparently for Linux you can find and install Solaar for managing Logitech keyboards, mice, and trackpads that connect to a USB Unifying receiver but with a quick look I saw battery levels for my keyboard and mouse, but didn’t see too much for configuration. I’ll have to dig into that more later.

    Logitech has always been my go to for a computer mouse. I usually buy the M325 model but decided on this one since it has the forward and back buttons and was on sale. It’s a bit bigger and feels good in the hand. Overall, I’m pleased with it so far.

  12. Dr. Rad

    The product on the outside looks very nice and feels good, but apparently what they put inside is the cheapest of the cheap. It is sad because I really enjoyed the exterior but literally just today it just decided it was no longer going to track or feed any clicks to my computer at all. If this is what can be expected of Logitech products going forward then I will be looking elsewhere.

    No troubleshooting is going to fix bad sensors or parts on the inside. I guess you get what you pay for.

    Would not recommend this mouse or any additional products from this company going forward until the quality gets better again.

    You can win customers with a name but can’t keep them with crappy products.
