    Logitech makes the best mice in the world and this one doesn't dissapoint. I've always use their products and have never experience any problems. The mouse is compact enough to be carried along with a laptop. Is very comfortable to hold and the buttons feel natural. The wireless receiver is a great idea since you never have to disconnect it from your laptop. You can barely tell is attached to your computer The only drawback here is that if you lack sufficient USB ports you may not like the idea of this receiver occupying one of them. Overall great mouse, very responsive and well put together.

    The overall size mouse and positioning of the buttons is great. I especially love the hidden button on the the thumb(right-handed user) grip. The nano receiver is very inconspicuous and although I don't use it on a Laptop or notebook/netbook, I'm sure it wouldn't cause too much a problem leaving it plugged in when the laptop is put-away.

    I constantly use the Adobe Creative suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign etc..) and I love the accuracy of the mouse laser. Plus, it really does track on most surfaces fairly well.

    My only gripe with this mouse is the scroll wheel. The wheel has scroll and click and capability as well as left and right tilt-click (programmable to many different options) as many mice do. The problem is that the left and right tilt-click are very sensitive and are when trying to scroll wheel-click, more times than not I click one of the tilt-click options. You have to really concentrate on clicking straight down on the scroll wheel to accurately scroll-click.

    This is a big issue for me in two fields:
    1. Web browsing
    - I constantly scroll-click on links to open them in a new tab instead of in the current window. I've done this for years and hate that now I have to either right-click the link and select "Open in new tab" or hold the ctrl button while clicking.

    2. 3D Modeling Programs
    - I use many 3D programs for work. In many of these programs the scroll-click button is used constantly for panning, zooming, changing perspective, as well as other features. Once again I have to really concentrate on clicking straight down on the wheel to use these features.

    -

    In conclusion: If you don't plan on using this mouse for the scroll-click feature, then it is a great mouse. If you are, look elsewhere as this will drive you insane.

    Comments about Logitech M705 Marathon Mouse:

    I replaced my Apple Magic Mouse with this one because the Apple product doesn't work that well on a lot of surfaces. This replacement is a great wireless mouse that works on all kinds of surfaces and is very ergonomic. There's one small complaint I have about this mouse—the scroll wheel is noisy. I just ordered a Logitech trackball mouse which will be perfectly quite. I can still use the noisy mouse at another location where the noisy scrolling doesn't matter that much. Other than that it's been a great mouse.

        Comments about Logitech M705 Marathon Mouse:

        Casual web surfer, bought this with the solar keyboard as the B&H kit. Keyboard not as awesome as it could be but the mouse is just fine. Connected instantly, uses the tiny USB reciever but has better range than my old Logitech keyboard/mouse combo that used a long USB cable. Mouse has standard controls including side scroll and app switch/forward-back thumb buttons. Scroll wheel is quiet, almost no noise, but just in case, it also has silent/smooth scroll with toggle switch just behind scroll wheel. Personally, I am a snob about batteries and will only use Duracell-- I was very pleased to see the included mouse batteries were standard Coppper Tops, not some random off-brand. I have medium-large dude hands and this mouse is just a little bit small for me. It's a right-hand mouse, which is not so happy for people like me who switch off for various reasons. However, it's got decent ergonomics which helps with long-term use fatigue. All in all, a decent mouse.

          Comments about Logitech M705 Marathon Mouse:

          Battery life is amazing. The feel of it is excellent. It doesn't feel cheap. If you like it lighter, you can remove one battery. I like it heavy, so I leave both in. Unifying receiver works perfectly. The extra buttons on the side are now indispensable from my workflow.

          My main mouse before was the Perfomance MX, which is excellent. But the battery is pretty weak. I had to leave it plugged in one day out of the week every week. Not with this mouse!

          Only gripe is the scroll when set to free spin, will occasionally scroll the page you're on without touching the mouse. It's pretty annoying when it happens. I believe this could be easily fixed with an update to the driver. My old Performance MX had the same issue.

          Great buy! In fact I bought it twice. One for home and one for work.

            Comments about Logitech M705 Marathon Mouse:

            I've been through 9 different wireless keyboard/mouse sets in my life and the latest addition being the marathon mouse. I use it with the logitech k750 keyboard and the combo first off looks great together. I'm also a huge fan of the unified receiver so I can mix/match keyboards/mice with one dongle.

            The performance does not compared with the mx performance mouse but for half the price most people probably wouldn't be able to notice.

            Although the mouse is smaller than your average mouse, I like the size as it fits my hand perfectly.

            I do also like the long battery life. My brother had this mouse when it first came out and I think he's only had to change the battery twice.

            The one downside I've noticed is that since the laser on the bottom is offset to the side, rotation movement while editing photos is slightly off and took some getting used to.

            We use the mouse on a much-used home laptop. The mouse fits our hands perfectly. The cursor translation control sensitivity is the best I've seen.

            Only two nits to pick...the scroll wheel tactile feedback is pretty low, so it is a bit too easy to get unwanted up/down translation, and...I wish it had a visual ON/OFF indicator to better remind me to turn it OFF at night.

            It's too new to determine the battery life at this point.

              Everything about this mouse is great. I have had no problems with the unifying receiver. The only hardware feature that I would change would be the: force required to depress the scroll wheel. I use CAD software most of my day, which requires me to click the middle button quite often. After working this way all day, I do feel a bit strained. But I still love everything else about this device. Hope this helps. Happy hunting! -B.

                    I've been using this mouse for a video editing project. I previously used the MX mouse, which is a bit larger, with a few more features, but has dismal battery life. So I decided to try the Marathon.

                    Ergonomically I have no complaints. The mouse feels good, and I really love the buttons and scroll wheel on the Logitech mouses, all very customizable. The response time with the USB dongle (wonderfully tiny) is excellent.

                    BUT, there is a fatal flaw with this mouse that I cannot get over. The sensor/laser is located on the far right of the mouse's bottom, very different from any other mouse I've used. For someone who does a lot of very fine detailed movement with a mouse (editors, motion graphics, designers, etc) this creates a very weird sensation. The way I'm used to making micro movements on a mouse, where I use primarily my thumb and index finger to make fine movements, is rendered useless - that type of small movement on this mouse often uses that outside point (where the laser is located) as the fulcrum, i.e. the sensor doesn't move and so your cursor doesn't move. Instead you have to move the WHOLE mouse with your hand, which is much more tiring after a long editing session. I've found it impossible to do any kind of fine detailed editing.

                    Going to finish editing this project, but I'll likely return this mouse afterwards for a better product. A shame, because otherwise it has great potential.

                      This mouse has Great Response; Accurate Tracking; Great Features; Comfortable Design; Glides Smoothly

                      I'm well satisfied with the Marathon and it meets up to Logitech's standards. Will have to see how the battery life lasts. Dropped it a couple of times onto my hardwood floor and it still works perfectly.

                          This is a great "little" mouse - more for a laptop that u carry around or for smaller hands --but I do have big hams - works great and they say the batteries will last 3 years - it seems to work on any surface !! MY Logitech MX mouse is bigger and it works well and has standard speed and can you can set the 2nd speed for finer control but cost more than 2 X as much and the battery last maybe 2 weeks - go figure - but it fits may hand -

                          Im using this mouse with mac and is great, just intall the software for personalization from logitech and you can tweak evreyone of the buttons on this one. The size is ok i prefer something more big but that one, the mx, is too much money for me. Im already thinking on ordering a second one for travel with my macbook a leaving the other one at home with the imac. Very pleased with this purchased.I set the hidden button on the thumbpad to expose all my windows so i can move faster between apps and documents

                          I use this product for work and so far so good! The click is loud but I am already used to it. I like all of the buttons - back browser, forward browser, program switching. This was a nice replacement for an aging Logitech mouse.
