Need to know:
Compatability: I clearly have not tested every OS but I know it works on Windows Vista(Yes, that's how old this mouse is), Windows 7, 8, 10, and Ubuntu 11 and later
Battery: 2x AA
Battery Life: >1 year (constant power)
Feel: Comfortable for an average sized hand
Handling: All the precision and accuracy of a gaming mouse without all the buttons
Range: (?) I've used it across a room (15-20 feet) and had zero issues, but I haven't exactly tested it.
Software/Drivers: Plug and play, no CD or Install required just plug the USB nano receiver in.
USB 2.0 and is compatible with 3.0
After nearly 8 years of service I've started to have my first issue. The spring on the left button has finally worn down to the point where I commonly double click on a single click, even when I don't want to. It's rather frustrating when trying to highlight or drag/drop. It's useable, but it's time for my old friend to retire.

I love the size and shape; it fits comfortably in my hand. The responsiveness has never let me down (whether using photoshop or regular browsing - I don't do any computer gaming so I can't really comment on that).
One thing I love about the upgrade from my old one is that the USB receiver is TINY. With the old one, it jutted out like a flash drive and it was always getting in the way, but this one is a neat little 3mm, instead. There is the dinkiest little space for the receiver to be stored inside the mouse near the batteries (instead of underneath, as with my old mouse).
What else... I've been using it every day for extended periods since May 2012, and I'm still on the first set of batteries, still going strong. (I can't actually remember if the batteries came in the box, but I think they did since they're not my usual brand). I turn off the switch at night to preserve battery life.
I use a Shartoon 1337 gaming mouse mat with this, and it works perfectly. (I prefer to use a mat for comfort and to prevent the clunk-and-scrape noise of using my mouse on a wooden surface, though it's not strictly necessary).
You can't go wrong with Logitech laser mice. Yes, they're more expensive than some brands, but they always deliver a strong performance and a long life. It's worth every penny, in my opinion.
the 505 seemed to get some good press with few negatives, so I thought I'd give it a go.
Being a Physics teacher I'm not easily impressed by lasers and 'invisible light' and talk of the obscene resolutions etc that mouse manufacturers harp on about. As such, this mouse was a very pleasant surprise.
I'm getting on a bit and have owned and used rather a lot of mice in my time, but the precision of this mouse was quite impressive. Even when the new laptop arrived and I was using the mouse on the duvet (!) it was still incredibly responsive. Going back to my desktop (logitech) and old laptop (Microsoft) there is a noticeable difference, and they aren't shoddy mice either.
It's hard to put your finger on, but the cursor just goes exactly where you want, exactly when you want and there is no dithering about or strange micro-movements as the mouse settles. The size is OK, I'd probably prefer it ever so slightly bigger, but I've go big hands and it is comfortable enough to hold. The surface texture is just right, smooth rubber on the sides and super shiny on top.
When this mouse arrived I must admit that I baulked when I realised I'd spent that much on a mouse, but I'm very happy now that it's out of the box. I've not been using it long and if it blows up and burns my house down I'll probably edit this and knock a star off; but otherwise it's a well deserved 5 stars.
The M505 has a good chunky feeling, fitting well into the palm of the hand, gliding well along all surfaces (no mouse pad), weighty enough to feel robust, left & right click buttons very sensitive, central scroll wheel chunky and strong. Precision is impressive at all pointer speed settings.
Installation was very easy, Windows 7 automatically recognised the USB receiver to allow default mouse functionality. I also downloaded and installed Logitech's excellent Setpoint software for more customised settings.
Two drawback only: the battery compartment locking mechanism feels somewhat flimsy, and the glossy black finish attracts fingerprints & smudges.
IN SUMMARY: highly recommended as a standard mouse to accompany your laptop, but if you want a fully fledged desktop or gaming companion go for something more expensive.
The mouse arrived in less than 24 hours. As is normal the quick start guide is the size of a young bed sheet due to the different languages. These can be summarised in a few words - make sure the mouse is switched off underneath, insert the supplied batteries (Duracell no less) by holding the spring clip underneath and sliding part of the top shell off. Try not to drop the microscopic wireless receiver while inserting it into a USB socket. Turn the mouse on. Wait a couple of minutes for Windows 7 to do its thing. Unplug your old mouse. Use your new mouse.
No need to even reboot.
What else do you need? It's a mouse. It goes where you want it to, at a speed that you want it to move and it does stuff when you click the buttons or move the wheel. More? OK, it has a nice feel to it, a smart black on black body with rubbery sides that provide good grip. It doesn't light up like a mobile disco, it just sits there until you want it to do something, then it does it.
I really can't pad this review out any more than that.
A word about Logitech software. You may get seemingly alarming errors when closing down Windows as the system tries to stop the driver software, but it doesn't seem to cause any problems so I'm just ignoring them when they happen. TBH in my years as a computer techie I have often found Logitech drivers don't match the quality of their hardware and you don't actually have to download the additional software from Logitech to get the mouse to work. If you do though you'll get pretty smooth scrolling using the mouse-wheel.
Wondering about getting another for my laptop now....
