    The End of My Search

    • Written by from Lillington

    The end of my search for the perfect mouse. I have used the original Mighty Mouse that came with my 2008 iMac, the Magic Mouse that I got to replace the Mighty Mouse when its scroll wheel quit working, the Logitech M555b that would not go a day without losing contact with the iMac, and the Logitech Performance Mouse MX that came with a CD that informed me that it would not work with my 2008 iMac that had been upgraded to Lion version 10.7.4. This Logitech Wireless Mouse M510 is just perfect for my use, without any download of Logitech software that is available for it at a website that is identified in the enclosed paperwork. Disregard the review on this page that alleges that this mouse "doesn't work with some web browsers (notably safari and Chrome) on Mac OS"; I don't find any problem with it working perfectly with my Safari browser in Mac OS X Lion, and I'm sure if there may be any problem that has not occurred during my use of it, said problem would be solved by a download of the Logitech software that is offered in the paperwork that came with the mouse.

    Very nice mouse, works flawlessly with everything. The other review states that the mouse doesn't work with Chrome and Safari. If you install the Logitech software you can customize the mouse and it will then work with both browsers. No complaints here.

    Well worth buying

    • Written by from Fort Collins

    The M510 does everything i need it to - Gaming, browsing, precision work, and graphic design all work well with this. No software, just plug in the receiver and you're ready to go. The receiver itself is conveniently small, and if I want to take it to another computer, a little slot in the Battery compartment keeps it safe so I don't lose it. The only complaint I would have is that it doesn't work with some web browsers (notably safari and Chrome) on Mac OS, but the back/forward buttons do on Firefox and Opera.

    Great Investment

    • Written by from Cordova

    I'm very particular about my mice. This M510 has served me well for over two years without replacing the batteries. It has weight to it so it feels nice when using it. It also feels amazing in the hand. Scroll wheel is pretty well built. Not as precise as I would like it to be, but it works very well. It tracks well on most surfaces, not including glass. The back and forward keys are a life saver when browsing the internet. They did not work originally though, I had to install an app called SteerMouse. It automatically mapped my buttons accordingly. Great mouse!

    Ok but..

    • Written by from Grove City

    The tracking is not as nice on a mac as it is on a windows-based or linux-based machine. When the computer comes back up from sleep the mouse sometimes initially works, sometimes not, and turning the mouse off and on doesn't work. I have to manually remove and reinsert the nano dongle to get it to reinitialize. This happens with and without the Logitech Control Center installed. Ugh! I won't be buying Logitech next time that's for sure since I now exclusively use a Mac. I will definitely be looking at other brands. I was a Logitech fan for years and years, not anymore! This problem also happened with my M710. So, I am not pleased.

    I have a mid-2012 MBP 13" with OS X 10.8.2.

    Simply great

    • Written by from South San Francisco

    The only thing wrong with this mouse is that it's not bluetooth and the slight lag when "waking" it from standby.

    Otherwise, it's got a great feel, the click is satisfying and solid, and the scrollwheel click is precise and easy to engage. The thumb buttons work well, too.

    I'd give it 4.5/5 if half stars were allowed.

    Solid, accurate mouse!

    • Written by from Stettler

    After giving up on Apple's attempt at a wireless mouse (had two of them, both lemons that were a constant problem for me before they died shortly after the warranty expired), I was glad that I decided to try this mouse from Logitech. I always use a 3M precision mousing surface for my mice, and I find absolutely no less degree of accuracy from the Logitech mouse than from the Apple wireless mouse. The Logitech mouse may not be as slim, but it does seem to fit the hand better, which I far prefer to Apple's rather awkward feeling mouse.

    Solid and reliable, but not very sensitive.

    • Written by from Boone

    I bought this mouse as a replacement for my magic mouse in order to get some extra buttons for gaming and a more reliable scroll wheel for browsing. The body, weight, construction, and functions of all the buttons are excellent, this truly is a solid mouse and has been very reliable as far as lack of missed inputs. My only complaint is that it does not track as well as other mice. This may be due to the mouse itself or it may be due to the logitech receiver technology. It isn't that the mouse is incapable of precision it just has a noticeable amount of lag when small movements are required, especially slow small movements, I have found I often have to move a larger physical distance than expected to achieve a small finite difference in the cursor. An excellent overall mouse but i wouldn't recommend it for gaming of drawing using a mouse.

    i wish i could love it

    • Written by from brooklyn

    i wish i could love it but it just doesn't work very well.

    i have an older mac book pro. it was top of the line in 2007 and the specs are still ok compared to new models. i used to use a microsoft mouse with a huge transmitter that was just fine. i bought this because of the small transmitter and nice ergonomic design.

    the problem is that it just doesn't track properly. it's jerky on any type of surface--even white paper or a standard mouse pad.

    i've tried some of the troubleshooting tricks but nothing seems to work.

    just my experience

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    I needed a mouse to replace my old wired one on my macbook pro. I've usually come to trust in logitech for good mice. at least half way decent especially for the mac and while avoiding microsoft as much as possible. I've come to rely on logitech for good mice over the last 15 years or so for gaming mostly, from real time strategy to first person shooters. I figured i'd finally give a wireless mouse a try. So, I got this Wireless m510 with hopes of beating out the ol' m500 wired mouse. BOY was I wrong. The mouse lags. and nothing is more enraging than that. response time is milliseconds off and if that wasn't enough, it'll just hang, freezing in place until jerked around like trying to use a dry erase on the white board. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you're trying to kill time at work. I want to like this product I really do, but no. it's going back and I'm getting my money back. glhf

    not for Mavericks...

    • Written by from Morgan Hill

    I bought the M510 because I have used the larger Logitech Mice in the past and the Magic Mouse that came with my system is an ergonomic disaster for me. Ergonomically I give the M510 5 stars. On Mavericks Server, 10.9.3/3.1.2, functionally, I give it none. :-( In use it's pauses often, presumably to handle higher priority tasks. If you are "dragging" when it pauses, it will drop the "load" where ever it is. Thank goodness for undo... :-/

    Nice ergonomics but horrible lag.

    • Written by from Rochester

    I love the way this mouse feels, and it's buttons are all on par for the price. The problem is it lags so much that I end up using the track pad most of the time. I use it on a Late 2011 Macbook Pro 15" with 2.4GHz i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 480GB SSD, on 10.9.5. It's nearly impossible to use in Photoshop because it jumps around everywhere, so I just have to resort back to the track pad. If it wasn't for this problem it'd be great.

    One of the best mice on the market

    • Written by from Niagara on the Lake

    If you need to get REAL work done, look no further. This mouse kicks bottom. Very comfortable, great size, and tracking is excellent with it's laser tracking.

    Logitech support is fantastic... and great warranty. If you're looking for a replacement for your awful Apple mouse, GET THIS!

    the mouse of my dreams

    • Written by from Richmond

    I got this to replace an Apple Magic Mouse, which had given me one headache after another since I bought it. The Logitech is GREAT! Plug in the USB "Unifying Receiver" and that's it - the mouse is ready to go. I also love the fact that the battery should last 2 years (the Magic Mouse ate a couple of batteries every 2 weeks).
    I've had no problems using Safari, Chrome or any of my Apps. Unless it self-destructs at midnight, the Logitech is a keeper. And I'm going to give the Magic Mouse a fitting farewell (as soon as I get my sledgehammer).

    Great for hands

    • Written by from Berkeley

    This mouse has made my mousing painless. It fits right in my hand, and now that I have used it for a few days I could never go back to the magic mouse. Selecting and clicking only require tiny finger movements, which relieve the arthritic joints in my thumb and wrist. I find that it works easily with Safari and Chrome, and the side buttons function when there is a slideshow of photos to go back and forward. I think there may be more functions I am not using, but just the ease, lightness and natural feel of the mouse are enough for me to be completely satisfied.

    The mouse is absolutely amazing in it's built and functions. It has made everything easier to do and also faster. It is very good and maybe even better than the magic mouse.

    • Written by from Inver Grove Heights

    This mouse works very well, and it is less expensive than the Magic Mouse. If you are afraid it won't work with your Macbook, do not worry! It works wonderfully with my Macbook. All you need to do is plug in the little piece that comes with it, and the mouse will work! :)

    Works fine with my 24" desktop

    • Written by from somerset

    I was looking for a decent mouse to replace my original Apple bluetooth model, and didn't want to spend what an OEM model costs. This is a great alternative, and works just fine. It feels solid and comfortable. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is you have to tie up a USB port for the mini receiver. Bluetooth would be nice, but otherwise I've been happy with it's performance thus far. I got a great price on it on --ay, and wouldn't pay the ridiculous retail price. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.
