I bought for my Autistic grandson.....at 5 years old he had his own desktop PC and uses it for hours....He could not work a mouse.....he took over my notebook with a wired Logitech trackball at 4 years old and we had to get him his own computer. He loves to surf videos of techie stuff centered on fans....turbines....windmills. He was non-verbal at 4 and at 6 years old now he is becoming a real talker....thank to his computer his language skill have skyrocketed with his ability to use his PC because of the trackball.

The product performed fairly well but I need something to assist me in CAD software. First of all, I really need to be able to press the scroll and hold it down while I move the cursor. This proved to be difficult as it took a fair amount of force to hold it down. Doing so completely negated the ergonomics of the device as my hand would cramp after only a few hours of use.

Secondly, I was not able to move the cursor to pinpoint a specific point. As a designer, I constantly have to move to a specific point (roughly a 4-pixel cube) and this mouse made it difficult. I would have to get "close" to the point, and then take my time to fine tune my cursor position in order to select the point. This happened due to the smoothness of the track-ball, or there lack of. it seemed to jump past the point when I slowed the tracking as I got close to the point I was trying to select. This slowed down my design operation by a great deal.

When I use the mouse with anything outside my design software it worked great as I did not require the level of accuracy as I described above.

If you are a track ball aficionado, and do not work in a CAD environment, this is a great choice of mouse; otherwise, I do not recommend it.

Quick note about the unifying receiver: it worked flawlessly. I had no issues with interference or mis-communication between the device and PC.

Hope this helps, and happy hunting.

        This mouse works as advertised and is a great price for this type of mouse. I use it on my personal computer and it is easy to use. I needed it to reduce my wrist movement compared to a standard mouse and it is a big improvement. The only improvement would be the ball is very touchy if you need to put the cursor in an exact spot.

          This is the second M570 I have purchased. I use it for home and work. Great trackball! I used the Logitech corded trackball for years and decided to upgrade with the replacement of a wireless keyboard. Love it! Battery lasts forever and it has never let me down. Highly recommended!

          Comments about Logitech M570 Laser Wireless Trackball:

          Just switched to this style of mouse and love it. Tracking is smooth and mouse is effective. Construction quality could be better, it feels a little light and cheap, but i imagine it will be fine just sitting on a desk. Happy with this purchase.

              Comments about Logitech M570 Laser Wireless Trackball:

              I love these track balls. I was really impressed when Logitech first came out with these truly wireless models. I'm spoiled on trackballs and won't ever go back to running a mouse all over some surface.

              The only drawback, is that I have found that I have to replace them on average of about once a year, due to the left click wearing out. Taking the mouse apart and cleaning it helps, but the cleaning has only a limited ability to extend the mouse life.

                I bought my first M570 to use at work to navigate between 3 monitors. It has all scroll and select properties at your fingertips and thumb. It took a little to retrain my digits to make the correct moves. Now I would not trade it for any other mouse or trackball.

                        I am systems administrator who spends most of his time working in Linux and Unix terminals. The pros of this mouse is that it includes a middle-click button that is also a scroll wheel. Also, it fits my hands well, which I would say are medium sized.

                        The cons of this mouse is that pressing the scroll wheel as a button requires a bit of pressure (although I think it loosens up a bit with time). Also, after a little over three years the buttons started double-clicking automatically. So I'm a little disappointed that the mouse only lasted 3 years, but at this price I think it's bareable.

                            We have several of these on our computers. They are very precise. Would give it 5 stars but they don't last very long. The main click button gets touchy.

                              So if you are a right handed person like me and feel like carpel tunnel syndrome is going to hit you, give this mouse a shot. I was told by my ergo person that this mouse helps and after using it for more than 9 years, I purposely get this mouse to aviod cramps in my hand.

                              The only disadvantage I see is that dragging and dropping is difficult compared to that of a traditional mouse.

                              I use this product everyday for graphic design projects. I did have a wireless that constantly needed batteries! I reused my rechargable batteries for the last time and went back to the old method. Love it! It is less touchy and works smoother for graphic control.

                              It works as expected. I had a logitech trackman (or whatever it was called) for some decades and it finally stopped working reliably. I was worried about getting a replacement, because I really liked the feel of that old one. Fortunately, I don't even notice that I've got a new one (except noticing that it works) so all is good.

                                This wireless trackball is nice for my convertible notebook. On a small restaurant table it's perfect. It's much better than the notebook track pad. I would give it five stars if it was a Bluetooth. A USB port is lost when you use this trackball.

                                  I've always preferred these trackballs to regular mice. I have owned these since they were the corded version. My scroll wheel wore out, so I bought 2 replacements because B&H had a great price on them. I only gave it 4 stars because I expected to get a few more years out of it before the scroll wheel wore out.
