M555b

Date:22 June 2011
I have bought this mouse instead my broken (but I guess there is just a problem with one microswitch under left button) VX Nano which I have used for 3 years almost every day. :-)
And after 3 months of using I have to say this one (M555b) is much worse than my previous VX Nano.
The battery life is cca 2 weeks (even if I switch off the mouse some time every day during travel/versus 3 months of VX Nano I have not switched off at all), resp the SetPoint software says the remaining time is 0,5 day even if no status LED is lighting. The reaction is not immediate after I touch the mouse, it takes about second to start moving, some time - not in regular period and it seems to be independent on battery level - the mouse does not track exactly.
Maybe it's because of bluetooth technology, maybe because the battery - I use rechargeable SANYO ENELOOP or POWEREX AA , but I have used the same SANYO/POWEREX (just AAA size ) for VX Nano.
All features would be nice in case the basic funcionality - exact tracking - will work. :-)
Yes, it looks nice but I need the mouse for work and the final result is that I am quite disapointed with M555b. Because, based on experience with VX Nano, I expected much more from Logitech.
One of the reasons to buy this mouse was to make free one USB port of my notebook.
I will try to claim and change my M555b at seller but I don't believe much it will help and I will go back to radio mouse - MX anywhere or I'll try to repair my old good VX Nano.

Great looking - easy to use

Date:23 December 2010
I got the M555b to match my computer's styling, and as a mouse that has a simplistic, yet elegant design. And I REALLY like what I got.
Like I said, the design is great. I also own a Logitech Anywhere MX, which looks a bit... aggressive. M555b’s gloss finish is not something I'm a fan of, but it fits very well with here and, curiously enough, it doesn't catch fingerprints. It's not black, which would've been too plain, it’s a very nice shade of dark grey.
The mouse is quite confortable to hold, and unlike the brick-heavy Anywhere MX, weighs just right and may even be a bit on the light side.
Two problems I have with this mouse: 1 - there is no travel bag and 2 - its tracking isn't all that good. Well, the lack of a bag just tells me Logitech’s become something of a cheap. I didn't expect M555b to track as well as Anywhere MX, but it doesn’t even do it as well as VX Nano. By tracking, I mean how smooth the cursor motion is, not how well it works on various types of surfaces, I didn't check that - I always use a mouse pad.
As for the features - there aren't many, but I wasn't going for features when I bought the M555b. There is only one additional button, plus two directional buttons on the scroll wheel, which I can hardly imagine using for anything other than for scrolling left or right, which they were made for in the first place. But I'm happy with that - I don't need any more buttons. Scroll-wheel's very nice. It works great in both click-by-click mode, when it's quiet and feels very nice (unlike Anywhere MX's, which is quite clunky) and in free-spin mode, for long documents. Buttons feel GREAT too, they give you just the right amount of feedback and they aren’t noisy (again, unlike Anywhere MX’s).
I bought the mouse just yesterday, so I can't say anything about its battery life, but from what I've read, I don't expect it to be more than two months, which is a bit on the short side. I think three months is the norm, and everything longer a bonus.
So my verdict: this is a very good mouse. The only thing keeping it from being great is its mediocre tracking.

Good Gear

Bought instead of a Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse (for Macbook Pro) and very impressed. Great design, feel, look and excellent battery life. Works on all surfaces. Another Logitech winner!

M555b - I'm impressed.

Date:09 March 2010
I am an engineer. I frequently work abroad, so I needed a bluetooth mouse that was just as capable as the corded mice I have been used to, but is more fitting to travel, due to the lack of a cable. I had a little difficulty loading the software, and the first few minutes were a little "sticky" but this was probably just as much down to me. This mouse is excellent. I really don't care too much how it looks, or at least I didn't. This mouse does all I need it to do and I am told by quite a number of my peers that it looks like an engineer's mouse.I picked the metallic gray mouse as it suits my dark gray laptop, which is a Sony. I was waiting for a Sony mouse but this one from Logitech is nearly £25 cheaper and looks better. Perhaps I should say more functional/no messing. If you want fashion go for the Sony. I am quite happy to attend any meeting with this mouse on the table and am pleased to recommend it to anyone. I have several staff for whom I pick the IT equipment. They will be receiving the same mouse.

Looks good, feels bad

Date:21 January 2010
I'm a Uni student so I'm on my laptop for a lot of the day and I've quickly realised I need a mouse. Logitech always product decent products so I knew where to start and I opted for bluetooth as my laptop has bluetooth and I also figured I could use the mouse with my PS3. I bought the m555b after seeing that Logitech's other bluetooth offering, the V470, was only £7 less and lacks the new scroll wheel of the M555b. I also think it looks much nicer than the bright blue plasticky V470.
Unfortunately when it arrived, it only took me a day to realise I couldn't get on with it. Within about an hour of use it was giving my hand cramp and I had to have a break. Going back to my laptop's trackpad was the last thing I wanted to do - this was the reason I bought a mouse in the first place! Whilst the M555b may look nice, the shape of the mouse simply doesn't fit the hand well at all as it's far too flat. I use a Razer Diamondback at home and also had a Sony Vaio Wireless Presentation Mouse so I'm more than used to flat mice, but both of those are shaped well to fit the hand, which isn't something I can say about the M555b. What's more is that the new scroll wheel that Logitech rave about removes the use of the middle button, which I use extensively in internet browsing to open new tabs. The button below the scroll wheel can be programmed to do this but having to lift your hand to move your finger is irritating and unnecessary.
Generally I'm someone who will choose fashion over function and wouldn't mind putting up with a little discomfort for a nice looking product, but in this case the discomfort is so bad it totally outweighs any other factors.
Ultimately, this is definitely a matter of personal preference as a few other reviewers seem happy with the M555b and the best thing you can do is to have a go with one for a while yourself and see if you like it. If you compare it to Logitech's other mice on their website, it's a very different shape and unfortunately that's not going to be to every user's benefit.
