Logitech M720 Triathalon Multi-Device Wireless Mouse (910-004790)

Great mouse that can switch with up to 3 different devices. Has bluetooth and a unifying receiver.

I've had one for 2 years and just bought another one.

Amazon's blurb says:
  • Pair M720 Triathlon with up to 3 computers and seamlessly switch between them at the touch of a button thanks to Easy-Switch technology
  • Fly through documents and web pages using the hyper-fast scroll wheel, or shift to click-to-click scrolling when you need precision
  • A true athlete, M720 is designed to endure, with buttons built to withstand up to 10 million clicks
  • Boosted efficiency with 24 months of power on a single AA battery

I love mine. And the ability to pretty much instantly switch between different computers.

The one thing is my batteries last nowhere near the 2 years stated. Maybe it is because I'm using eneloop AA and not an alkaline. It maybe it was because I used it about 6 hrs on weekdays and like 10 hrs or more on weekends, or that I never turned it off. It has been so far off the 2 year mark that I've kept a little paper in the battery compartment to note when I change the battery. I changed in July 2018, Jan 2019 so far, so I could be about 2 months out from another change if it is every 6 months.

I would get another for backup tho.

Thanks op, I was waiting for either this one or the m585 to go on sale. I think this one should be much better than m585. I'm gonna switch between my desktop and laptop with this, and also this mouse support this logitech flow thing where you can copy and past between computers, gonna try that out.

Don't forget ebates 5% now.

Same here about the battery life, that's perhaps the biggest weakness of this mouse, which I quite like otherwise. The alkaline battery that came with it died on me within 4 months. A fresh AA alkaline replacement battery is down to 50% after 2 months. But I do use it a lot.

Eneloops or rechargeables will last less because they're typically 1.2V, while alkalines are 1.5V. The mouse is rated for 1.5V at 100mA. I'll still probably switch to rechargeables if alkalines aren't getting close to the stated 24 months.

A few other details:
- The hidden thumb button doesn't work in linux, or at least I haven't found a way to map it to something useful
- The body of the mouse, other than the left and right buttons, is a soft-touch material, which isn't my preference. My hand/fingers tend to get oily and it's harder to clean that material. It feels a bit sticky/gummy when it gets grimed up.

I'm nitpicking though. Overall quite happy with the mouse, which I got on a previous $40 sale. And I love the free scrolling mode. I always use it, and I just can't go back to slow clicky scrolling.

OK. good to know I'm not the only one getting way less than the 2 year battery life. I've had other BT mice before, but this one seems to drain. Could be also it uses 1 battery. I'll need to compare with the one I have at work.

I believe Logitech makes a keyboard that you can also switch between multiple computers

Btw, I'm using it with the Unify receiver, not BT.

Same, using with the receiver. Maybe its better with BT? Sometimes, I use it with a laptop that has BT but not often.
