Review Summary:

Logitech. Let’s face it; if you are even remotely familiar with computers, you have touched one of this company’s plethora of devices. Personally, three quarters of my peripheral tech is Logitech. To date, my favorite has to be the Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball, even with my initial railing against the wireless age. A wired device didn’t need batteries, line of sight or special configuration…just plug and play.

The SetPoint software allows monitoring of battery life and configuration of input devices. A free program provided by Logitech, usually upon initial install of most Logitech devices, allows you to configure your mouse, keyboard or other peripherals and shows a reading of the battery life of wireless devices connected to your machine.

Unifying software allows multiple Logitech devices to connect to single USB via wireless transceiver. Connecting your keyboard, mouse, headset… (Almost) any wireless Logitech device can connect through one simple Unifying USB transceiver. The transceiver itself proves to be far and away better than previous wireless setups by removing the need for line-of-site to function.

Button 4 + 5 and scroll wheel axel wear out/break easily. I have been through several of these devices, but to be fair, I’m hard on my input hardware. For the average user, this can be a non-issue, but for us hardcore users, we press buttons quite a bit when playing games and the durability of these parts truly get tested.

Unfortunately, these devices are exclusively molded for right hand use, with no option of ordering alternating or reversible setups for left -handed users.

The thumb-ball setup prevents wrist and elbow pain normally associated with typical wired kinetic mouse peripherals by only requiring movement of one’s fingers instead of the entire arm to point and click. Attempting to go back to the traditional mouse, when necessary, has proven to be difficult if not outright painful. The motions required to achieve basic functions are once again foreign, and after a few hours of continued use one can experience pain in the wrist, elbow and shoulder joints from the required range of motion.

Pros

  • SetPoint software allows monitoring of wireless device battery life as well as configure input controls
  • Unifying software creates a wireless hub for multiple devices through a single USB port
  • Prevents wrist and elbow pain by limiting required motion to control programs
  • Cons

  • Easily breakable buttons
  • Restricted to right-handed users
