- Ergonomic Mana from Heaven- January 19, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] ============================= >>>>> Bottom Line Up front: <<<<< ============================= The Logitech ERGO M575 wireless trackball mouse delivers an outstanding level functionality while simultaneously providing exceptional hand/wrist ergonomics and precision cursor control at the same time. It excels in almost every task you can think off and provides a solid wireless solution for those of us who have limited desktop space as well …. the only true exception being hardcore gaming tasks and scenarios. If you haven’t given a trackball style mouse a try – you absolutely owe it to your self to see how and why the M575 delivers on so many levels … from the well-established Logitech quality/support that we have all come to know and trust – to the extremely fair price of the M575 feature set – you simply can’t go wrong. What I liked: =========== - Takes up significantly less diskspace compared to traditional mice - My wrists and hands have never felt better after a hard day at work - Logitech build quality and design is top notch and will last - MSRP does NOT BREAK THE BANK - Deal USB – AND - Bluetooth wireless functionality What I didn’t like so much: ====================== - The exterior surface felt a little odd to me, and would sometimes leave a very minor fingerprint outline/mark after usage (I tried to capture in the review photos) - lacking in significant extra customization - “only” 2 traditional side buttons for forward/back navigation (not counting the two main click buttons and scroll wheel) - did not have the option to select scroll wheel speed/resistance to my liking =============================================== >>>>> Personal Observations after a regular usage: <<<<< =============================================== Logitech is one of those companies that seems to have been around forever to me. I can remember back in the late 90’s/early 00’s when I first began to really “use” their keyboards, mice and headsets daily as part of daily routine and began to care about ergonomics and performance. I say this, because even though it’s been 25+ years – I have never been let down by any of their products and designs that I can think of. Speaking of the early 2000’s … that is about the time I discovered the “trackball” style mouse. Even back them when the likes of Microsoft and IBM were still making trackball devices, I fondly remember having to pop out the tracking ball to clean all the gunk and dirt out from the mechanical rollers in order to keep them going …. but I digress. I had always appreciated the precise cursor control trackball mice back then – however it was the advent of the “optical” mouse really changed the game for me, and I never really looked back or followed the trackball mouse device evolution since then. It is for these reasons I am so blown away by the M575 …. I haven’t really given a trackball mouse device any consideration until now. It is not like I have been living under a rock for the past couple of decades, I knew trackball mice have long since switched to optical inputs, are now wireless and offer many of the same features that we have all come to know, love, and expect…but quality wireless trackball mice were seemingly priced as much as some very reputable gaming grade “regular” mice devices. To me, it was more difficult to justify spending money/time on something that may (in my eyes) may only provide a marginal increase in productivity and comfort …….. boy was I wrong. For the price (current MSRP of $49.99) – I can’t say that is the case anymore. You get a truly “wireless” mouse – with support for BOTH Bluetooth AND a traditional USB style receiver. Again, to me this is awesome because I often switch between multiple PC devices, many of them that have limited (and sometimes NO) USB ports available for additional peripherals. Building on that functionality, I had completely forgotten how much less space is required when you are working with a trackball style mouse (compared to my traditional mouse’s 13x11 mouse pad surface area requirement). The ERGO M575 made it so much easier on my wrists after just one day as my daily driver (putting my trusty G502 Lightspeed for a well-earned/much-needed vacation). I happen to work with large databases, lines of code, and large spreadsheets for what seems likes a never-ending daily basis - and the ERGO M575 provided super smooth, ultra-precise control of my cursor the entire time thanks to the tunable (400 DPI - 2000 DPI) sensitivity rating with the Logitech Options Software (which is an optional - but you REALLY should download it to unlock all the features that the M575 has to offer). Logitech claims the ERGO M575 will 24 months on a single battery (which they kindly include with the device) …. I repeat….2 years….with the USB receiver. Sure, you lose some months (approximately 4 months off that previous number to be precise) if you chose to operate it in Bluetooth mode, but seriously…it’s hard not to complain. I can’t speak to how well/accurate the battery life to these claims – but based on my decades of experience with wireless Logitech products – they have NEVER been really off in their estimates – so I have no reason to doubt their claims here. Some people might think the lack of having a “built-in” rechargeable battery is a bad thing … but I strongly disagree. ALL BUILT IN BATTERIES will require replacement at some point in time (depending on usage, sometimes sooner than later) and are generally NOT USER SERVICEABLE. The ERGO M575 wisely have a user-friendly battery compartment that allow YOU to choose what type of battery/cell to place inside, and enables you to provide your own brand of high-performance rechargeable batteries if you should so choose. I also dig that they include a nice little recessed spot inside the battery compartment to store the USB receiver when not in use. It is little touches like that I appreciate from the product engineering department. As much as I appreciated everything ERGO M575 has brought to the table, it may not be perfect for everyone and ever task. As I mentioned previously, I don’t think this is the best solution for PC gaming or software usage that requires a large number of customizable buttons/presets/macros either. The M575 could also benefit from a user selectable scroll wheel (it only has the “clicky/knobby” style feel by default, but I think that is because I have become so spoiled with Logitech’s other mice that have the optional ability to use a type of smother “hyper” scroll that is much better for viewing/editing long documents/pages – so unfortunately, I kind of expect it on everything now. I don’t exactly have “large hands, and for me the ERGO M575 doesn’t “feel” too large to be unusable – quite the opposite as I have pointed out – but at the same time I felt like my hand was “resting on it” versus completely “driving” the device, however I think this is primarily due to the ergonomic design of the M575 and obvious trackball design style. Lastly, you WILL still have to pop out the track ball from time to time to get dirt/gunk/grime off of it (and possibly the optical sensors underneath it) – but it is super easy to do, and require maybe 30 seconds of time if/when that ever should occur. ========================== >>>>> Closing thoughts: <<<<< ========================== The Logitech ERGO M575 is a lot of mouse tech for a relatively low price. If you haven’t tried a trackball before – this is the one to get. You won’t spend a fortune, and even if you don’t use all the time – as an additional to your other standard peripherals/input devices – the times you do use the M575 – your wrists and desk will thank you for it. I have had such an enjoyable time with the ERGO M575 I really kick myself for not keeping up with the innovations and changes that Logitech has brought into this particular device field.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Super Comfortable!- January 12, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first time really diving in and using a track ball. It took me a little bit to get used to the feel and mechanics of just using my thumb as opposed to moving my whole hand and arm. After the first few hours of clicking and moving documents and closing windows ect. I forgot about my hand entirely. That is to say that it was so comfortable and rested so naturally on the mouse that my hand, wrist and forearm was just in a restful state. The left click/right click forward and back buttons and scroll wheel are so naturally placed that any stress on those body parts dissolve. Going back to the regular mouse after using the Ergo M575 I immediately noticed just how much tension I place on my wrist and forearm from being at a bent elevation from my wrist and hand. Keep in mind there are other factors as well like how tall your chair is in relation to your desk but raising and lowering to get that right resting place for your forearm and hand on the Ergo M575 is worth the small effort to get it just right. Your hand just “rests” on the mouse and it feels great. Another feature that I really like about the trackball system is (as you can see from my pics) my desk has a million things on it. With the Ergo M575 it is stationary, and I don’t need valuable desktop realty to move the mouse all around. Now if you’re a neat freak (or not that busy) it neat and sleek to just have the mouse there and it never moves. At home I have a nice cherry finish on my home office and have to use a mouse pad so as not to damage the finish. Again no movement from a mouse = no damage to the finish. I like that. I also like that the track ball easily pops out so you can clean it! Nice touch. This mouse more than delivers on its promise of fantastic ergonomics! Really love it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good trackball with glaring limitations- January 16, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I review all things Logitech because I love the quality; this trackball is no different. I haven’t used a Logitech trackball since a Kensington trackball in the late 90s / early 2000s and was excited to give today’s trackball a “spin” without the wires. The Good: Compact Comfortable Budget Friendly Easily cleaned Packaging - simple The Meh: Single computer pairing Logitech Options software Packaging - too simple? The Good: The packaging was super simple - a trackball wrapped in some thin cardboard with the most basic of instructions printed on the cardboard. A battery door on the bottom houses the replaceable battery and a unifying receiver. The software setup was easy, as most The ergonomics are great. My arm is at 90 degrees to my desk (sitting or standing) so I’m used to a pretty consistent height, but not moving the mouse was pretty amusing for the first few minutes. After a while, my thumb was tired; my thumb was jumping around like I was on a nerve - or like my quads after a hard spin bike session. After a week of trackballn’ - I was pretty content with how my thumb adapted, but it’s still no mouse. The footprint is small, but not tiny; the MX Master 2s is roughly the same size and shape but obviously needs room to move around. I like the somewhat familiar feeling of the MX Master 2s, but my thumb is elevated to use the trackball, vs resting at the side for the ‘show desktop’ push. As you can see in the attached photo, it’s much larger than the MX Anywhere 3 - so keep that in mind if you plan on throwing it in your bag to use outside of the office. It does have a remarkable resemblance to the G604 as you can see. It seems as if the trackball can be easily cleaned as it pops right out through a hole in the bottom that only my pinky could sneak into - barely. “Back in my day we had to scrape lint off rollers to make the ball roll around again.” Now, the “rollers,” are so pin-head tiny, that I can’t see anything accumulating on them to need regular cleaning - but the option is there. The Meh: Now that the good stuff is out of the way, here are some things that I wasn’t a big fan of, even with the seemingly budget status of the trackball. This trackball has single computer pairing, unlike MX line - that can accommodate upwards of 3 devices. With so many people working from home, the possibility of dual-using this device rises. Take me for example, I use one keyboard (Logitech MX Keys) and one mouse (MX Anywhere 3) for my work computer (Mac), home computer (Alienware) and tablet (Pixel Slate). Not being able to multi-use this trackball is a bummer. There is *no* MagSpeed wheel or wheel release for fast scrolling. While this is offset by a middle-wheel click and roll of the trackball for Windows and nothing for the Mac. Not having the ability to click to release the wheel to a 'free-spin scrolling blur’ makes me a sad panda and the usage of the wheel feels old and rubbery. I found that when using the Mac paired via Bluetooth LE, the M575 shows up in Logitech Options to be able to customize the buttons. When paired via the unifying receiver in Windows, the M575 was missing; when paired via Bluetooth LE in Windows, it was there. To me, this is strange as I’d expect the opposite if I were to have guessed which pairing mode wouldn’t show the 575. I found the configurable button at the front of the left click (default, it’s the forward button) to be too far forward for my hands, which are an XL glove size. The middle of my finger is where the two buttons meet, so pushing down pushes down both - either can be pushed first, depending on how the pressure is distributed. Do I recommend it? Sure? I guess it’d be for someone that may want to start using a trackball at half the price of the MX line. Again, the mega downside for me is the single-computer pairing, followed by the lack of a fast scroll with the middle button.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wireless&Bluetooth BOTH in 1 Trackball !- January 29, 2021
Always love Logitech products and this one is REALLY COOL! It can switch from using the included dongle to using Bluetooth! So u can have one trackball to use with 2 devices. It connected to my iPad effortlessly. Just like my other trackballs from Logitech, built well & does what I bought it for! Recommend!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good in a tight space.- January 13, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great mouse for a tight space. It took very little time to get used to it. It comes with a brand name battery ready to go, and the USB connector has its own storage spot in the battery compartment. I love that. When I swap laptops, I put it in there so I don't lose it. The design is ergonomic and comfortable. No more hand struggling to push stuff out of the way so my mouse can go one inch farther in a tight spot! My 8 yr old also uses it with no problems. The ball is removable for cleaning and that makes it easy to disinfect when a bunch of hands have touched it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
