do you feel good scrolling and carrying items around with this mouse?
Works fine with Android :
What's the point of the video??
Thanks to this video I realized my mouse came with a wrist rest. I might have thrown out the box with the wrist rest inside.
Does it have middle button for copy/paste?
I THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE TO INSTALL SOME DRIVER FOR THIS THING !!!
Can u test it with android device please?
Was about to comment "does it work on linux?"... Thanks for answering before I asked.
Can the ball spin and spin with speed if you give it a quick pass with the palm of your hand?
I wish you could have shown your screen and what your hand was doing on the mouse at the same time so I could see how the mouse works. Doing things like dropping files, highlighting text to either copy/paste or search.
I know a little more about the mouse than I did before so thanks for making it for us to watch
nice video !!
..so good, so fun :) Helped me to decide what to go for.
I agree that the angle on on the Expert is bit panful, the buttons cannot be called ergonomic.. main left button under thumbnail in an angle like this (you press kinda to the side not in the thumb natural direction) c'mon! Just be aware that you will need to rewire your brain to do the most clicking work with unnatural thumb move. The far right button, is too far, you gonna rarely hit it, the far left is bit better but as I said not ergonomic at all. You cannot use the far buttons as your finger are on the ball and so you cannot the middle press and natural mouse move at the same time or similar combinations.
Plus the usb tooth connection is lazy to wake up along the computer you should take the tooth out and in.. super lame. The driver are funky too. It kills my mac os system many times in a way the system could not wake up at all. The support although very helpful had no idea what to do with it (I fixed that with Onyx rebuilding kernel if anybody hits the same problem).. I was never able to connect over bluetooth ever. It either doesn't work or kills the system. With or without their drivers.. (Just try to find the driver you need :), you need to contact their support to give you link, or in my case as they selves had no public link to give me) I would say do not install their driver it is not useful at all. You gonna end up with the default settings after while anyway, it is a mouse above all and the system will recognise it as such. Useless for 3D and Photo editors, quite useable in curve editors If you are not working with free shapes. Where it shines is browser, the ring makes huge difference.
If they make it I would choose wired version, it will be more stable and I do not need to be swearing while my batteries die away when I need to work.
The ring is great, the big ball too. The momentum of the big ball feels quite natural. What is also positive is that won't over-sensitize your pinky and "pisiform bone" as you normally would with common mouse as you drag your skin over and over the table or what. The ring might help you with overused middle finger as you can now scroll easier and use other finger as well.
If you buy it it'll hurt no doubt about it (3days or week). But you get used to it. There are programs though that you will not be able to use it at all, like I mentioned 3D and the like.
They should update the design or somebody else will learn from them and make a better version.. which is not that hard, as it is basically reversed oldschool mouse, it only costs ~10times more.
The best tech review ever
What is that keyboard model?
Thank you for the comparison! Very interesting accent, enjoyable to hear! :)
Is this a parady?
How about a review of the sweet keyboard you got there?
one of the best product review ever!
that. was. the. best! XD
so much fun
bro. do more reviews on ANY product.
This is the best review I've found for these products!
you should do more info videos and reviews..this helped me so much! saved me time and braincells THANK YOU!!!!!
You're a funny dude. +1 Like
subscribed for the accent :) - I want more :)
lol "if you're rich" hahaha. It's an $85 mouse man lol. Tres bien fait.
Thanks for the video very informative it helped
I use thumb ones exclusively—going on 6 years with the one you have here. I like it, but it does require frequent cleaning of the ball and sensors. The next step up in Logitech’s line (with the silver thumb ball) is better made and has two wrist position choices. It only needs cleaning every few months (vs every week). I recommend the upgrade.
and you can play gams with this Mouse
thanks man for real
I have gone threw 8 570 in six years. Logitec knows about the switch ,and there solution was th MX. They are still selling the 570. I told them they should stop selling it until they put better switches in. They commonly last 3 to 14 months. I am switching to kensington.
I game solely with the M570 Thumb trackball. I can zip across the screen in a micro second with more precision than I can with any other finger. I also don't have to relearn Left/Right mouse button clicking.
A center mounted ball is impractical when using. Often chosen by people for the slow comfort , and reduced carpal tunnel strain their applications are rarely gaming oriented . Logitech has an ergonomic model thumb trackball that is about $40.00 more then the M570. I will soon find out if it was worth the investment.
nice straightforward review, thanks
I have a Perixx perimouse wired 517 12 months old works like a charm. Cost a few bucks in fact I have most ball mice including kensington pro
I really appreciate the solid and honest review of both mice from someone who's been using them long-term. I already bought the Logitech M570 some time back exactly for the reason that it was easy to take along with me so I could work on-site no matter how much room I had as you usually need more space for a regular mouse to work comfortably. I already use a Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro as it also saves space so paired with the Logitech M570 it's perfect for cramped spaces that I'm cursed with having to operate in.
I've been getting annoyed with the mouse cord getting caught up against things on my desktop setup at home (it's a long cable run and unfortunately ends up catching on random things) which infuriates me and disturbs me while trying to focus that I was looking for a good trackball for home. Thinking the Kensington Trackball with Scroll Ring is making the shortlist. Thanks again for giving some insight, especially to how the scroll ring operates.
I found index finger balls to be painful. Also messes with me as I am trained to use middle and index for buttons not movement.
But you make good points.
So you only use this to web browsing? how about actual work with these devices? Photoshop, copy files, browsing explorer drives, editing text, working with specific area like 3D software or DAWs?
This might be the best review I’ve ever seen you got my sub bro
the m570 upgrade isn’t just aesthetics take that back mr
I now use the kensington trackball (in it's fifth year) at home ( I also work from home) and use the magic trackpad II at the office. Both are good. Apple Track pad is 3 times the price though.
Thanks, your video helped me to decide, my thumb thanks you too for not going into so much stress :D
What is this😮
good review. No bs.
How much do you use your thumb on the finger controlled ball? For a number of reasons I'm looking for a mouse that that doesn't require you to use your thumb for anything, but still keeps your wrist still, and have been looking at trackballs, but most seem to want you to move the ball with your thumb, and if not, they want you to click with it.
Thanks for the video. I found it useful.
Orbit trackball is garbage. Ive bought 2 of them and both go bad with the left click button after around a year of use. The rolling ring starts to get stuck if you dont cover it with s cloth or something after finish using it. It collect dust and try to clean it its a hassle. Kensington have been known for using cheap parts on this type of mouse. Never heard nothing bad about Logitech in this type of mouse so im gonna give it a try. Believe it or not im using right now a Logitech k400r keyboard with trackpad built in. Its way better than the trackball. This little shit works perfectly fine for me while browsing and stuff like that nut for editing I need something like the trackball for precision.
so great audio editing on pro tools with trackball?
A helpful review; I'm thinking about it for flight-sim use in Win10 Pro. Was also reminded it was a good decision for me to stay away from FruitCo products and their incompatibilities.
I have a 2018 Intel Mac Mini, the bluetooth works fine, just got this today!
Before anyone buys this, keep reminded that it’s not precise, it takes a while to click on a precise location. Used it for a month and it’s horrible, great for ergonomics but horrible and waste of time, you waste hours In total by trying to click on a precise spot like the close button to close a plug-in .
hey, great video thx! are you still using the mouse?
Thx that helps alot.
tried using this one and it just didn't fit my hand much at all. currently using the elecom HUGE wired version. one day, i might revisit this one- but for now, it just didn't fit well. Same with the CST L-TRAC.
Can the scroll wheel be programmed to make fader/pot changes?
That thing looks TINY.
For reference, may I ask how tall you are (trying to guesstimate your hand vs mind based on general scale).
How are the knob dial turns on 3rd party plug ins, is it with the ball or with the dial?
What mouse are you using now?
I really appreciate how well this video was put together. It quickly covers much more than the basics and intuitively takes you through the logical pieces of information. Great job, thank you!
Have you tried removing the usb? I got it to work with bluetooth on a 2019 iMac.
what is this con activity
I wanna replace the red ball w/ a poolball... 8 ball all the way!
registered new wireless twice. have used wired trackball for 20 years - seriously! the buttons will not set. worse yet I plugged in the wired trackball with the new software and they wont set either.
you didnt show how to recharge that thing
its because apple sucks
Not slim enough for this female with arthritis, and the two part wrist rest is totally impractical if you work lying down, or on a couch...I have to move around a lot due to chronic pain. Desks are only good for an hour. So it is hard to make a living with USB being converted to the weak c connection (cat bump kills it and the computer socket, and using a dongle just results in USB not recognized if I sneeze, lol). Logitech red fingertip mouseball teardrop is still the best, but no upgrade for wireless, bluetooth, scroll wheel, and usb c for meeee. I feel screwed.
So smooth scrolling similar to a macbook trackpad be achieved, or is it jumpy?
