  1. J. Koniuszy

    This mouse is the best I’ve used so far.

  2. JB

    I purchased this mouse for a new MAC I bought at the end of 2021. I have yet to replace the battery and it still reads 100% on my MAC. I love how quiet it is and make my computer usage much easier than using a track pad.

  3. Charran

    This is second time to buy this mouse, works very smooth, and fits my hand

    Using the Logitech M557 Bluetooth mouse on my main laptop which uses Linux (my predominate OS of choice) I found using the scroll wheel as a “middle click” for pasting selected text (which I do very frequently) was driving my wife nuts. I eventually replaced that mouse with the Logitech Pebble M350 Bluetooth mouse, which has a MUCH quieter scroll wheel click and keeps my wife’s sanity in check. 😉

    This mouse is very durable and comfortable to use, though I found that the two AA batteries it needs last only about a month when using it with an OS (such as Linux) which doesn’t support the Logitech app for putting the mouse in “sleep” mode when not in use (available for Windows/Mac) and helps extend battery life by a huge margin. That is why I used rechargeable batteries with this mouse on that laptop, though it has since been delegated for use on my Windows 10 laptop (which only gets occasional use, so in addition with the app the batteries are lasting MUCH longer).

    Anyway, this mouse is built with quality, is comfortable and has very smooth action… a very nice mouse that will last when regularly used for a long time. I gave it four stars only because the app they provide to extend the battery life is available for Windows/Mac and not Linux, and without it (to put the mouse in “sleep” mode when not being used), battery life suffers greatly. Otherwise it’s a great product all overall.

    While it says that this product is Mac compatible, it is not. I have tried two of these mouses and neither have worked. The company in fact KNOWS this is an issue as there is a statement on their website. The amazon listing needs to be updated to reflect this! Super unfortunate because I could tell that I was going to like it: it’s small, lightweight.

    The compact size of this mouse makes it easy to haul around in my laptop case. The buttons are sensitive enough to make it comfortable to use. The battery compartment is a bit weird because the opening is at the rear end of the mouse instead of the bottom as it usually is located. This makes changing the battery a bit tricky because buttons would keep clicking (from your hand touching them) during the battery changing. Bluetooth connectivity is good and easy to set up. Overall, Logitech knows how to design and produce good pointing devices.

    I had my first one for over a year and a half and it took a beating as I traveled a lot and it was in and out of my backpack on a daily basis.
    Despite all that it worked great. I was using it with a surface pro and the bluetooth connection was solid every time. It’s very responsive and the sensitivity takes some getting used to, but overall a great mouse.

    The batteries are supposed to last for an entire year due to the low power consumption of the device, but I probably changed the batteries at least two times in that year and half. So with constant daily use you’re not quite getting a year out of the batteries. However, not having to change any batteries for months is really great. I would love a model with a built in rechargeable battery that you would only need to charge once every few months.

    Recently for whatever reason it suddenly stopped working altogether. Now with that said, I loved it so much I just bought another one and I’m still giving it 5 stars.

  8. John C.

    It works well and does exactly what I purchased it for

  9. Alonso Sotomayor

    Mouse works great, just takes a few seconds to “wake up” after remaining unused for a couple of hours (the reason for only 4 stars). This is a true wireless mouse, not having an external USB receiver (however small it may be) is a bonus! This frees up space to use the available USB port for other peripherals like a portable monitor. Appears to have a long battery life.

    I purchased the Logitech M557 bluetooth mouse for just $13 and it was an obvious steal. BT mouse usually cost more than wireless one’s and so this was a no brainer. However, there stands to be many improvements to be made for this mouse. Let’s go over the pro’s first.

    Pro’s:
    – Connectivity. With a BT mouse, you’re usually going to pair it up with a laptop. This means you’re free from having a wireless adapter dongle from having to be connected to your laptop all the time. With today’s laptop getting thinner and thinner, there just isn’t enough USB ports to spare. While you could obviously use a USB hub, this is an inconvenience. For the majority of users, I’m assuming that the mouse will be used very close in proximity to their laptop and so in most cases, connectivity strength will not be a problem. This holds true for all the time’s I’ve used this mouse.
    – Back/Forward Buttons. The mouse wheel not only scrolls up and down as expected but includes the ability for left and right clicks as well. By default in Windows, this translates to the back button (left press) and forward button (right press). This is very useful when browsing in your browser of choice because no longer are the dedicated back and forward buttons in an awkward location as in most mouse.
    – Windows Button. The dedicated Windows button right below the wheel by default opens up the Start Menu. I believe you can download the Logitech software to customize what this button can do. I rarely go into the Start menu in Windows 10 so I’ll definitely change it to something more useful when I can think of something!
    – Build Quality. The M557 seems very sturdy and well-built for a mobile mouse.
    – No Hyper-Scroll. This may be a con for many but I hate Logitech’s hyper-scroll wheel feature with a passion! I’ve had to return a wireless mouse in the past (which I loved) because middle clicking was extremely frustrating and error prone. The M557 does not have this scroll wheel feature and I for one am glad.
    – Absence of Light. Not sure if this can be considered a pro but be glad to know that there is no optical light whatsoever under the mouse.
    – Power Switch. Yes, I’m old school. I like a dedicated on/off switch. The mouse does have an energy saving mode but still, nothing beats a power switch!

    Con’s:
    – Weight. Immediately upon using the mouse I realized that this was not a good sign. I’m using the Logitech M100 as my daily driver (which in my opinion is the best budget wired mouse ever) and switching to the M557 is a night and day difference. The semi good news is that the mouse can actually operate with just one AA battery! It has slots for two but I’m currently using it with only a single battery and have not experienced any issues so far. Trust me, you’ll want to do this because that extra battery makes a big difference. It’s not a deal breaker but it’s weird how other wireless mouse that requires battery and that seem larger in size feels actually a bit lighter than the M557 here.
    – Ergonomics. The mouse is not that comfortable to use. It has a fairly square design and although there is a slight hump acting for a hand rest, it’s not enough. I have very small hands and so I can’t imagine how users with larger hands than mine will like this. To be fair though, this is a “mobile” mouse first and foremost so we must understand that some sacrifices must be made. Just realize that using this mouse as your daily driver might be a bit uncomfortable for you. I have no choice but to use the claw style mouse grip with this mouse. This slightly offsets the weight issue since I won’t be lifting the mouse a lot (weight con) and the ergonomic con since my palm will be resting on the table instead.
    – Click Noise. The noise made when clicking on the buttons are fairly audible. This can be quite irritating when used in meetings. This is the complete opposite when scrolling the mouse wheel because that produces almost zero noise.

    All in all, I think this is a pretty good companion mouse for the mobile user. You’re probably not going to want to use it daily but only at times when it is required. You can throw the mouse in your travel bag and have a peace of mind that you won’t have to use that crappy touchpad on your laptop.

    Logitech have ALWAYS made the best mouses… The M557 is no exception.
