Reviews around spin (4.82 of 5)

  • After receiving the mouse the scroll wheel spins free and just doesn't stop spinning
  • I especially like how the mouse wheel can be "switched" from free spinning to "click mode" (for lack of a better word).
  • The button switches the wheel from free spinning for fast scrolling to more regular mouse scrolling
  • I also like that you can change the scrolling from 'notched' to free spinning with the click of the button.
  • I absolutely need the speed scrolling free spinning mouse wheel

Reviews around size (4.68 of 5)

  • I've used similarly shaped full-sized mice in the past and always liked them, but the smaller size feels awkward
  • Besides this GREAT programmability, the mouse itself is a convenient size
  • Good battery life and large size is handy and is shape of mouse.
  • This mouse is a great size, and fits my hand well, has great battery
  • The size is awkward, and the sensor is placed at the side, which means it has strange behavior during the normal "pick-up-and-move" motion you do to center the mouse on the surface

Reviews around product (3.94 of 5)

  • This product did look promising, as I always like Logitech products
  • I could have gotten a defective product, but I would not recommend this mouse.
  • This is the worst logitech product I've ever used and the worst design for a mouse in history
  • IF I was them I would scrap this product from your otherwise great product line.
  • The product feels great, my only issue is with the performance, specifically with the receiver

Reviews around wheel (3.86 of 5)

  • Love the scroll wheel with the click points or free wheeling.
  • For another, the wheel is unreliable and hyper-sensitive for me and will scroll both up and down when I try to use it, or even when I brush it.
  • The wheel is incredibly loose, to the point that it will scroll by simply moving the wheel
  • Unless you really need a free rolling scroll wheel I wouldn't consider this mouse.
  • It's not the batteries that loose in the mouse, but the stupid scroll wheel

Reviews around feature (3.80 of 5)

  • Whoever was in charge of designing those scroll wheels that "unlock" needs to go away for good, that is such a terrible feature and even though the Logitech M510 has it as well it would be a far better mouse if it had a fixed, firm scroll wheel
  • The best feature that I looooove about this mouse is the scroll wheel feature that I wonder why no other brands have built into their mouse
  • My favorite feature is the button to unlock the scroll wheel
  • Another nice feature of this mouse is the ability to change its' weight by using one battery (lighter) or two
  • I've been using this mouse at work for several months and really like it, my favorite feature is the "hidden" thumb button

Reviews around scroll (3.74 of 5)

  • The switching between click scroll wheel and smooth scrolling works very well and is great for scrolling all the way to the bottom.
  • It's not the batteries that loose in the mouse, but the stupid scroll wheel
  • The mouse wheel is completely unbalanced, so scrolling is a pain!
  • You can't press the scroll wheel down without left/right scrolling
  • Makes scrolling horribly inaccurate and frustrating when you scroll down a page only for the mouse to scroll the page back up!

  • hope the battery life lasts as long as it says b/c my much more expensive logitech mouse burns through batteries like crazy
  • I got a fake Wacom mouse with a fake Logitech logo on it

Reviews around button (3.46 of 5)

  • it left/right as well), and it's missing the thumb button
  • I like the different buttons. and that the scroll wheel can also do horizontal, and the scroll button can easily be changed to scroll quickly or precise.
  • When I click the right button, the right button will go under the left button
  • The button on the top allows to lock fast/slow scroll and the scroll buttons also works as middle button
  • They changed it, quality is much lower, it missing the thumb button and the mouse quit working after one day.

Reviews around click (2.45 of 5)

  • The two main mouse buttons seem alright, but they take very little force to click (less than the weight of a resting finger), so accidental clicks are an issue
  • The click from the left button is a lot louder than my last Logitech mouse of similar size.
  • I came back to this same mouse because the click is fairly 'soft' - in other words it's easy to press down the left and right buttons so it doesn't irritate my wrist as some other models do
  • It feels pretty nice to use, and the left click, right click, and scroll wheel all feel nice
  • The right click is so sensitive, I hit it by mistake constantly

Reviews around batch (2.09 of 5)

  • It's not quite as big as the Microsoft 5000 mouse which I LOVED b/c of how well it fit my hand.
  • I don't know if I got a bad batch or if it's the way it is supposed to work
  • Although I've tried Logitech's $66 MX Master and a different, $12 laser mouse, I still prefer the M705 as of this writing
  • hope the battery life lasts as long as it says b/c my much more expensive logitech mouse burns through batteries like crazy
  • super hand fit and in all functions is as smoothly responsive as you could ever want, without being jerky.

Reviews around star (2.03 of 5)

  • Even though the mouse is fine, only 4 stars because I am using this on my
  • This doesn't happen all the time, and it's not a dealbreaker or anything, but it's irritating enough to knock off a star.
  • 4 stars because its smooth scrolling chrome addon that comes with it is bad and theres no clear way to adjust dpi
  • The user instructions was surprisingly limited - no explanation of the side switches or the scroll free spin switch... if instructions were complete, it would get 5 stars.
  • I knock one star because when the wheel is free rolling it sometimes moves the tab by mistake.

Reviews around model numb (1.87 of 5)

  • It is decieving that they are using the same model number this is NOT the same mouse.
  • Why would you sell a product with the same model number that is different?Good grief.
  • Lately I've been using an $8, 3M Precise Mouse Pad with Non-skid Foam Back with an M705
  • I don't understand how they can sell a different mouse with the same model number.
  • I had a previous version of this mouse with the same exact model number and I loved it

Reviews around flaw (1.80 of 5)

  • This could have been the perfect business mouse except for one FATAL flaw: the right button is so sensitive that I click it accidentally several times a minute, which totally blows my concentration
  • Although I've tried Logitech's $66 MX Master and a different, $12 laser mouse, I still prefer the M705 as of this writing
  • had(which is given to my dad then) from staples... just some trivial flaw like the off/on button does not perfectly showed by its red/green color
  • I'm also confused as to why Logitech Options isn't compatible with this mouse
  • super hand fit and in all functions is as smoothly responsive as you could ever want, without being jerky.

Reviews around sensor (1.74 of 5)

  • Sensor is in SO POOR and barely works on a flat mouse pad let alone my leg or laying down like I sometimes migrate to after hour 8 of sound/video editing
  • The new revision overall looks lower quality and logitech is using a cheaper lower quality sensor for the laser
  • good mouse, but you need to plug in a usb thing, and the optical sensor is good, not great
  • Sensor is in the worst place ever as well which multiplies the fact that it can't sense anything on any color
  • The new version feels cheap, has removed the extra thumb button & has an inferior sensor

Reviews around plastic (1.69 of 5)

  • The cheap plastic and bad design lets the left button and right button hits each other after using it for only three months
  • I compare the sound of nails on cheap plastic to nearly the same cringe of nails on a chalkboard
  • Although I've tried Logitech's $66 MX Master and a different, $12 laser mouse, I still prefer the M705 as of this writing
  • It's not quite as big as the Microsoft 5000 mouse which I LOVED b/c of how well it fit my hand.
  • In addition, instead of being made of metal, the scroll wheel is cheap plastic made to look like metal in the photos, but won't fool anyone who sees the real thing

Reviews around behavior (1.69 of 5)

  • Only thing I'd recommend is that if you do not intend on using the bottom thumb button to disable it as its default behavior on a windows PC is to "fly out" and show previews of all of your programs
  • super hand fit and in all functions is as smoothly responsive as you could ever want, without being jerky.
  • Although I've tried Logitech's $66 MX Master and a different, $12 laser mouse, I still prefer the M705 as of this writing
  • I'm also confused as to why Logitech Options isn't compatible with this mouse
  • Tested another Logitech(M310) mouse I had laying around and did not notice the strange behavior as noticed with the M705.

Reviews around pointer (1.61 of 5)

  • It's when the pointer is set to slow, it's too slow, and fiddling with the acceleration settings doesn't really help.
  • With this mouse the pointer is so jumpy that it takes too long to click the buttons
  • So I noticed this annoying pointer lag whenever I first move the mouse, after not using it for a few seconds
  • Pointer freezes, middle button doesn't work sporadically, back/forward buttons hard to find by feel
  • Horrible mouse, pointer loses traction from light

Reviews around unit (1.54 of 5)

  • Both units hung up during scroll, jumped and consistently failed to stop scrolling
  • I really miss the accuracy, 'work anywhere' performance, and heft, but not the cost and battery draining ability, of the blue light mouse that this unit replaced, This unit isn't quite as accurate or happy working on the glossy palm rest on my laptop, but it does just fine on most other surfaces, and is a joy to use with a mousepad.

Reviews around bite (1.44 of 5)

  • This contoured mouse fits my right hand just right, I've used oddly shaped mice, and they are a bit uncomfortable for long-term use, but this is perfect.
  • The button on the thumb rest is unique and very much appreciated too!I did have to return and get a new one because the tilt scrolling was too sensitive, and I *STILL* feel it's a bit too sensitive
  • Because I came up short, I then try to jerk the mouse a bit more, and it zooms off to the other side of whatever I was trying to click on
  • Coming from a corded mouse, I was a bit hesitant to jump into a cordless one.
  • Best mobile mouse around, a bit heavy and center wheel button a little hard to push.

Reviews around issue (1.36 of 5)

  • Like a said before, a very good mouse but this little issue is all that is stopping me from giving it 5 stars.
  • To add to that it has some strange issues with interference or something in my
  • Find another Logitech Mouse unless you're willing to risk these issues.
  • First lasted about a year, and the second lasted 8 months before the intermittent connection issues started
  • After a month, the new one is having issues with the middle click scroll button now working at times.
