Although the shape of the mouse is more comfortable than my M510 the MX’s button placement is not great. The zoom button is placed just above my thumb and only 2 mm under the back button. I was constantly zooming either by accident, my thumb accidentally hitting the zoom button, or when hitting the back button. I “fixed” this problem by reprogramming the zoom button to mute. I now mute and unmute my computer quite often.
The back and forward buttons on my M510 had an indent between them where my thumb sat. It was easy to rock my thumb forward or backward to engage the correct button. This is not the case with the MX. The forward and back buttons are poorly placed and the M510’s indent has been replaced with a 1mm gap on the MX. The buttons have also been move forward on the MX. While holding the mouse in a comfortable position my thumb sits on the back button. I have to slide my hand forward on the MX to reach the forward button. This is not a good ergonomic design. I've only had the MX for a month and I’m hoping I get used to the buttons.
On the plus side:
The wheel has a button just behind it that lets you quickly switch between click scrolling and smooth scrolling.
The MX has a rechargeable battery that is charged using a USB cable and an indicator shows when the battery is running low.
The MX’s ergonomic design makes it more comfortable to use for long computer sessions.
The MX can be used on any surface including glass.
On the minus side:
The position of the zoom, back, and forward buttons leaves a lot to be desired. Given the importance of these buttons I had to down grade my normal 5 star rating for Logitech produces to 3 stars.
At this time I would not recommend upgrading from an M510 to the MX unless the use anywhere capability is a top requirement.
Battery life is perfect. I use my computer I'd say 12 hours a day as a graphic designer, and so it last me 8 days on full charge, and thats turning it off at night when I'm not using it. I'd say for a regular user, it should last least 3 weeks to a month, without any problems or batter charge issues. Which is great. What I hated about the magic mouse, I'd needed to change the batteries every week, Literally. sometimes less... not with this one. It comes with a cable and a port to charge the mouse, and one can even use the mouse while charging as well, which is pretty cool.
Connection was a breeze, took several seconds for the tiny dongle to activate the mouse. It does it automatically, just pop it in, and it does it on its own. Also the fact that if you have other Logitech products, the dongle also see's it, and no need to have various dongle or usb receivers. One is sufficient with its global receiver. I love it.
I have large hands so the style and form factor is just perfect. I think for one with small hands, might be a tad bit too big.
I really recommend this mouse for those hard music, graphic designer and users. Overall for the price that's on Amazon, its a no-brainer, compared to the original retail price of this mouse that goes for $100+
I have large hands and I'm much more comfortable using a large mouse, and this is the largest and most comfortable I've seen and used.
The life of the included rechargeable generic battery is relatively short (it seems I have to recharge it about every week and a half to two weeks), but it's so easy to recharge and it's fully usable while it's recharging that this doesn't bother me. (I understand that at one time this mouse shipped with an Eneloop battery, but today you just get generic. When the rechargeable it shipped with eventually dies, I'll replace it with an Eneloop.)
When I bought this I planned to use it at home with a desktop running Windows 7 and a laptop running Vista. Setup on these computers went smoothly and perfectly and the tiny dongle was perfect for the laptop. When it was connected to the laptop I was able to use the mouse on sheets, white counter tops, a glass table top, wood table tops, etc. That laptop has since died, and I've replaced it with a 2015 MacBook Pro retina 13, which recognized this mouse the very second I inserted the USB dongle into one of the MacBook's USB hubs.
I'll add a photo that will hopefully give you a good sense of the size of this mouse. The mouse under review is the one closest to my hand and next to it is a Logitech VX Revolution mouse which though smaller than this one, is a great mouse except for the fact that the USB dongle is really long and I was always nervous with it sticking out of a laptop. And next to that is the Hewlett Packard wireless mouse that came with my desktop.
UPDATE (May 8, 2017): My PC desktop finally died and so I started using the Performance MX with a docked MacBook Pro as well as with two different Windows laptops, and in order to make my life easier I just ordered a second Performance MX. Before deciding on it I spent an inordinate amount of time thinking and reading reviews about the MX Master, and tempting as it is to get a newer model Logitech mouse, I decided I'd do better with a second Performance MX. Here's why, in case you're also torn between the two:
1) The Master has a built in battery that is not designed to be user replaceable. Some users have figured out how to replace it but that's a hassle and on principle I dislike the idea that Logitech designed an expensive mouse to basically be disposable. I know it's crazy but I think the golden rule ought to apply in business, and designing a mouse that does not have an easy to replace battery isn't consistent with the golden rule.
2) I've never had any kind of problem with my first Performance MX in the 2 years I've had it and used it daily. A lot of MX Master users report problems, particularly with the scroll wheel.
3) I have large hands and need a big mouse and the Performance is a bit bigger than the Master and based on reviews where people compared these mice, reviewers with bigger hands tended to find the Performance a better fit and feel.
4) I've read reports about Bluetooth problems with the Master and Macs. It would be nice if the Performance could use both Bluetooth and the dongle to connect, like the Master, but it's fine with me that it just uses the dongle, which is so small I feel comfortable leaving it in laptops all the time.
5) The Master is said to be for "power users." I'm not a power user, I just click, scroll, and move the arrow around. The only buttons I use on the Performance are left, right and scroll, I don't even use the sideways scroll feature, so I don't really need a power user mouse that costs more than the Performance and lacks a user replaceable battery.
6) The battery life I get with the Performance is fine, and after nearly 2 years I'm still using the rechargeable AA battery it came with (a ReCyko brand). When it stops holding a decent charge I'll switch to Eneloop.
