Blog post: http://mytechmethods.com/reviews/best-ergonomic-mouse-logitech-m570-review

If you’re like me then you are constantly using a computer. These days it’s hard not to. One of the biggest consequences of this, however, is wrist pain and even carpal tunnel syndrome caused by doing the same wrist movements over and over. I was concerned about this because I edit a lot of videos and the process of video editing can take hours and even days. So I decided to do some research and I went out and got the best ergonomic mouse I could find. This is my Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball review.

This mouse is currently less than $30 and has an almost perfect 4.5/5 star rating on Amazon and the link is in the description below for when you want to check it out yourself. The Logitech M570 is not just for people who are specifically looking for an ergonomic mouse, but in my opinion everyone who uses a computer on a daily basis should own this mouse. Here’s why. It’s actually not labeled as a “mouse”. Instead, Logitech calls it a wireless trackball because instead of moving your arm like with a traditional mouse, with the M570 you are rolling this ball around with your thumb to move your mouse across your screen. Having said that, I will still refer to this as a mouse and trackball throughout this video.

Right out of the box, the Logitech M570 works with Windows and Mac. Just connect the unifying receiver to a USB port, turn on the trackball, and you’re ready to start using it. The wireless capability is one of its best features. It can work upwards of 30 feet away from the computer. Also since the tracking sensor is built inside the mouse, it can literally be used on nearly any surface. Or no surface at all. I also love how lightweight it is and the long battery life. It comes with a Duracell AA battery and Logitech claims that one battery can last up to 18 months. I’ve owned this mouse for a few months and I still haven’t needed to replace the battery yet, but I usually turn the mouse off when I’m not using it anyway. The ergonomics is also one of its best features. The way its designed lets your hand rest at a more natural position which should help relieve any wrist pain when using it for long periods of time.

For me, the trackball was very smooth right out of the box. However if it’s not as smooth as you’d like you can pop the ball out and wipe it down with a cotton cloth to make it even smoother. The rubber grips on the bottom give it a sturdy placement on the surface it’s on so the mouse itself doesn’t accidentally move when your hand is resting on it at an angle. The mouse feels great in the hand. On the top it has standard left and right click buttons and a scroll wheel. It also has quick access to forward and back buttons which can be programmed as custom triggers using the free Logitech software. There’s also a battery light indicator as well. The bottom where the battery goes has a slot for the unifying receiver in case you are traveling and don’t want to lose the USB dongle. Pretty convenient.

Really, the only downside is that this trackball is only designed for right-handers, like most mouses. Having said that, for right-handers this is one of the best purchases you’ll make. The Logitech M570 is my go-to mouse when I need a break from my trackpad or my Logitech MX Performance. It is a smooth, long lasting, and comfortable wireless mouse that works great. I highly recommend it because for less than $30 you could potentially avoid long-term pain or damage to your wrists. Again, my Amazon link for this mouse is in the description below so check that out. If you have any questions leave a comment below and give this video a thumbs up if it helped you out. Thanks for watching and I’ll talk to you in the next video.

Best Ergonomic Mouse? Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball Review

Nice review !! This is a great mouse been using this type mouse from Logitech for over twenty years. Though I must say that I do not consider this to be ergonomic. After long periods of time your thumb will fatigue and cause pain. Wrist and hand lay in a similar position as using a regular mouse thus producing strain and possible tunnel carpel syndrome. I needed to move away from this type of mouse and went with a vertical mouse which diminished my pain significantly. I still use my Logitech M570 from time to time, I still consider it to be a superior product.

i Tried it and it fully sucks, not as precise as the normal mouse.

JAYADITYA SHAH says:

can with just one go we go through the whole page

Ricardo Maggiore says:

I use it for 3d design since the first version from 1997… the best in my opinion

TheNuggetshooter says:

I have used these for years. They are my favorite type of mouse/trackball. Never had any problems with them. Great review as well. Thanks for posting.

jponzy says:

I saw this at target

BIG HENRY says:

I have purchased three and is perfect for right handers, however all after excessive use, the left click button on will tend to double click preventing you from dragging windows or once clicked, it will open any app or doc… I.E. Let’s say i want to rename a file, instead of highlighting, it will open… If only it would last more than a year…

Not a mouse – a TrackBall.

Angel Chester 091407 says:

Piece of junk. Only lasted 8 months. The old Logictech’s lasted forever.

Karen Holmack says:

Andy, thank you for the review. I just bought this last week and still trying to get used to it. Do you or any of your viewers have this issue? When minimizing a screen in Windows and then clicking on the program in the tray, it tends to open in a small (not full screen) window and when the cursor comes near the window, it goes back down into the tray. Very annoying! If anyone has a solution for this, I would love to know what it is!
Thanks!

Fabertel2011 says:

absolutely agree .. have 2 of them . only issue is the low quality of button switches . my right click started working bad a little too soon . I replaced the stiches with better ones and now its better than new !

MrRdbrig says:

I have this an I like it. My only dislike is using the thumb to move the ball. Lets face it the thumb just doesn’t have the range of motion needed to move the ball smoothly in all directions. I’m playing around with it now but probably won’t keep it.

The Dollar Guy says:

Any ideas why it won’t work on windows 10 after one of their updates? I have reinstalled the driver… absolutely nothing.

mdl397 says:

I have question regarding this mouse/trackball…I’m using a Mac…and I know
the Kensington brand of trackballs have scroll wheels and I’ve read that if you scroll normally it will move vertically, but if you hold Shift and scroll it will scroll your window horizontally…is this feature implemented on this Logitech mouse? its kind of the deal breaking factor in the decision process because I’d definitely need that feature for scrolling through the timeline in Ableton Live.

I love this Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball https://youtu.be/-ATbR1hfbOQ

What about Vertical Mice?

TDA DyronMax says:

Imagine gaming with this.

soju5885 says:

Hello Andy. Thank you for the review. I just ordered my own M570 but from Amazon in Germany. It seems there is an updated version of the M570 which is called M570 ewr2. I didn’t find any information about the differences between these two. Do you know what the differences are, except for the price?

Jeppe Werring says:

thinking of getting this for school, as we are going to use adobe cc extensively. good choice?

No Names says:

My M570 lost its sensitivity in about a year of use. It’s hard to select text and I need to click a few times in order to open, or close an Internet link. I have replaced it with a vertical USB 3D optical mouse. No complains during 2 years of use with this one.

bangem andleavem says:

Dude, I’m left handed and have been using these for 20 years with NO problem with my right hand.

Reynaldo Jr. Pajarillo says:

Sad this is not available in my country. 🙁 I badly need one for my typing job.

XSilverBulletMCX says:

I have been using this mouse for over 4 years now and i play every style of games possible with no pain or loss of accuracy

Raf Neyens says:

This is a very good mouse.
I’m going trough my second one now.
Had problems with my wrist and elbow before, this mouse resolved the issue.

One issue, the middle button broke after 1,5 year of usage.
Also the buttons are quit loud, especialy middle click (so not for silent evening use).

Johanne M.A. Lim says:

I used to love the white wired Logitech trackball models of early 2000s 🙂 But they always ran into problems of hairballs and rust collecting on the rollers and such. Does this model still run on the same tech and hence encounter the same hairball issues?

Narrow End says:

best mouse when you dont have a good surface to leave the mouse in

Vortexal says:

thats the exact mouse im using right now and i came across this video in autoplay lol.

somfplease says:

sounds like an ad.

Robert Newman says:

I use mine as my main gaming mouse, since roughly 2007. As I travel a lot, I sit it on the keyboard of my laptop, and often play games on airplanes.

Dugeek98 says:

I have one for 3/4 years, the 18-month battery is true, (at least 12 month with bad batteries and I never turn it off btw). I also managed to play with it, you can have a descent level on 3D games like minecraft, moba like league of legend or fps like team forteres 2 (based on my own experiencxes). Realy nice for working too and even more if the top of your desk is full of stuff. It may take a bit of time to use it nicely but still a realy good mouse. I realy recomend it (btw, sorry if I did some grammar mistackes, I am french, only learn english at school…)

Yesterday this was selling for £71.50 in Argos UK shop

Rhaspun says:

It’s a great mouse. I first started with Logitech corded versions of this mouse. My present M570 is now four years old. Absolutely no complaints. Although I have to say that it was a tough move to use this one when Logitech dropped the corded version. I haven’t had any regrets once I started using this cordless version.

Alter Nathan says:

Great video. Can you please record a review that shows it in use ? Screen shot of accuracy etc.
