Pros:Small, lightweight, affordable, laser, wireless, smooth
The Bottom Line: I am very pleased with the M510 Cordless Laser Mouse
The mouse; how would we operate a computer without one? It is the indispensable tool. Yes, I know one can operate a computer with a mouse by using keyboard shortcut keys combinations, but tasks will take you twice as long, or longer to complete. Hence the handy mouse, utilitarian mouse.

I have used a plethora of "mice" over the intervening years but the cordless laser is by far my favorite and Logitech is always my manufacture of choice. I have tried others, but I have always come back to Logitech; the company makes the best cordless mouse for my money. So, when it came time to replace my stock (Dell) corded mouse at work, my only decision was which Logitech model I would choose. I'll take a M510 Cordless Laser Mouse, thank you.
Description from Logitech product literature: "Do more, more easily with your mouse. With soft rubber grips and a contoured shape, this full size mouse provides all-day comfort, while Back/Forward buttons, side-to-side scrolling plus zoom and programmable buttons empower you to click, scroll and zoom with the flick of a finger. Enjoy laser tracking for smooth cursor control and two years of battery life. The mouse comes with a tiny Logitech Unifying receiver that stays put in your computer, so you can plug it in, forget it, and add up to six Unifying compatible devices without additional USB receivers."
The Logitech M510 Cordless Laser Mouse is an entry-level input device that serves up the basics in mouse technology. The M510 Cordless Laser Mouse is a right-handed mouse that utilizes Logitech's patented laser technology and works with the company's Unifying transceiver technology. The Unified transceiver can control up to (6) wireless devices.
The M510 Cordless Laser Mouse is designed with a Universal scroll wheel as well as a forward and backward buttons, controls that have become almost indispensable to me. The M510 Cordless Laser Mouse will work with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. The mouse can also be used with Mac OS 10.4 or later.
Power for the M510 Cordless Laser Mouse is provided by (2) AA batteries that are supposed to last up to two years. And to maximize battery life, a convenient On/Off switch (bottom of the unit) and smart sleep mode are provided. A battery indicator LED on the top of the unit reminds you when it time to change the batteries.
As it turns out my choice of the M510 Cordless Laser Mouse was right on the money; the mouse is a lightweight, no-frills right-handed mouse the fits well in the palm of the hand. The mouse uses a laser with a setting of 1200 dpi in order to deliver precision screen tracking and cursor control; it was one of the main reasons I chose this mouse.
Two other reason(s) I chose the M510 Cordless Laser Mouse: small (USB) transceiver and long battery life; both features make this mouse ideal for laptop users, but desktop user like me can also make it our own.
Another useful feature is the forward and backward buttons on the left hand side of the mouse that make thumb toggling a breeze. And I like the universal scroll; it is ever useful when browsing long web pages.
Installation of the M510 Cordless Laser Mouse is a breeze. The Logitech desktop software, SetPoint, does not ship with the unit, but the mouse will work without it. However, SetPoint does allow you to program the buttons and settings. Note: SetPoint does not work well with Windows 7; some of those units functionality is impaired; i.e. doesn't work!
I am very pleased with the M510 Cordless Laser Mouse. Once again Logitech has delivered another solid product with a feature-set that is both simple (affordable), but very useful.
