Multi device switches between the Included USB antenna and one Bluetooth device. There’s a little light on the mouse that switches from 1 and 2 to indicate which one it’s on, 2 for Bluetooth.

Had nasty discomfort from nerve damage from decades of mouse use, read about trackball, using it for a year now, very nice, highly recommended.

At what point do we say that a fancy mouse made in China is not worth 100 bucks. At what point. And please, don’t defend Logitech as if you own stock there.

You can connect to two Logitech receivers or Bluetooth computers also

The Plus version has a wedge that provides for an additional 10-degrees of tilt.

Little mistype. The 24 inch monitor is 169$, not 69$.

Not justifying the price, however most of the things we pay money for aren't worth the MSRP.

Having said that, this mouse isn't just any other mouse. Trackball + Multi-device connection sets it apart from most other mice. As someone who has used a trackball mouse exclusively for the last 4 years, I wouldn't trade them for anything. Kensington is the only other manufacturer with a trackball device capable of connecting to more than 1 PC at once. Theirs can connect to 3, however I am not clear on whether you can switch between devices easily. Plus the price difference is minimal.

3. Order and get Logitech even cheaper ;) Or you add any $10 item to your order and get it for free :)

It's such a widespread issue that there are tons of instructions on YT on how to replace the switches with higher quality ones
That's how they sell more products lol

Dhanushan wrote: The MX Ergo weighs more and uses better materials
Better materials is subjective. My MX Ergo is over 3 years old now and the rubberized coating on the palm area is de-vulcanizing (getting sticky). The M575 is just hard plastic like the old M570 so they won't exhibit this problem with age. That's my only material complaint with the MX Ergo, that lame rubberized coating. Everything else is more "premium" feeling than the M575, especially that magnetic tilt + base. Another couple of gripes I have is the narrow tunnel to the microUSB charge port which limits you to using the stock USB cable because most other cables have a bigger connector head that won't fit and the proprietary li-ion battery. I personally consider rechargeable AA batteries (Eneloop, LADDA, etc) to be far more sustainable over the long term. The M575 is really just a M570 with a slightly higher res sensor and added dual mode connection (USB + BT).

The ergo can connect to 2 different devices simultaneously and has a button below the scroll wheel that you can tap on to switch between either one.
Unless you are referring to the MX Ergo's Flow software which you don't need to tap the button, if you are referring to just switching between Unifying receiver mode (USB dongle) and Bluetooth mode, you can do the exact same thing with the M575 that has the mode switch button on the bottom instead of the top. I have a M575 hooked up to a Dell laptop (USB dongle) and a MacBook Pro (BT, b/c it has no USB-A ports). I just press the button on the bottom to switch between the 2 modes. White LED = USB dongle, Blue LED = BT.

I still use the sticky MX Ergo (w/30* tilt) on my main desktop because I still can't find a good 3D printed 30 degree tilt base for the M575. The M575 has a different base design so M570 tilt bases are not compatible. And the super generic/universal flat tilt bases don't hold the trackball very securely.

Been using a trackball for 20+ years now and have never had hand or wrist pain.

I snagged the Ergo plus from Canada computers last year for $69.

Even though I just bought this mouse, I'm skeptical about the current logitech quality. Two of my mx vertical just failed a little over 1 years of use (one double click, the other skip move). Lets see how this goes.

I have both M575 and Ergo plus. The Ergo tilt feature is good but not a game changer. The wedge has limited usage too. The biggest drawback of Ergo is the hole at the bottom is much smaller compared with M575, which makes it hard to pop the trackball out for cleaning. Now you have to use a think stick or screwdriver instead of a regular pencil or even your pinkey for m575.
The problem of M575 is the notorious double click issue after long term use. It can be fixed by replacing the click button but may be not easy for everyone.
M575 is good enough for most users I'd say.

I would like to upgrade from my M575, but there is no way I will spend $100 in 2021 with a sealed battery micro USB powered mouse. Time to upgrade Logitech!

Which bluetooth wireless trackball would you recommend for a first time user?
I'm looking to spend the least possible since I'm not sure if I'll like it compared to a normal mouse.

Is Ergo trackball good to be used on a set up of 2 monitors? Or regular mouse would be faster?

I would recommend going used as track ball mice are not for every one and they pop up on Kijiji or FB market from time to time.
Logitech M570 or M575 are the ones to look for new or used on sale.
