Not bad but looks like pretty much regular sales price now, lowest seems to be Prime Day last year for 19.99

I own 4 of these. After a year of daily use, the microswitch on the left click starts wearing out and double-clicking when you single click.

I've recently purchased new, better microswitches and replaced them in all 4 of my M570's. At $40, it's only worth repairing them if you have 3 or more. Before that, I'd say just buy new ones.

i feel sad you make such a shitty post to boost ur post count.

on that note, M570 is great, been using it for years and tried other trackballs but the thumb style is still my favorite and most comfortable. Wish they'd make an upgraded one after all these years.

lol, I'm just joking... it's an OK mouse, just I cant get used to it if I'm at a friends house and they only have this mouse that I could use on their computers. I find it so hard to use

Already have one, too bad it's not the ergo model, I need a sale on that one.

My original trackman wheel optical is still going strong since 2001. Metallic paint has worn off but switches from those days haven't skipped a beat. Once you get used to it's all you want to use, I can even play FPS with it lol.

Zipping across multiple screens with a flick of a thumb is super handy. Wish they'd combine features of a gaming mouse with one of these

Other upside is that nobody at work touches my computer, they try to move the whole trackball like a mouse lol

I found logitech ERGO to be a better fit for my hand. It’s a good price though.

Have been thinking of giving a trackball mouse a try, unfortunately it's not the ERGO model, but it's still worth giving this one a try first. Thanks OP :)

I say this every time there is a deal for the M570. If you are considering this at all, do it!

I have used the M570 for close to a decade. I originally got one at work to be more ergonomic, and you end up learning using the ball quickly and being able to flick much faster than an average regular mouse user. It definitely does not tire you out like a normal mouse.
It is much better for speed – for working – I do a lot of PowerPoint and Excel. But you will find it is slightly less precise and won’t be great for you if you do graphics/photo/art type of work.

The switches do wear out. 1 of the click buttons stopped working for me once, but a couple emails to Logitech support with the serial # and receipt, and they sent me a new one!

I went through 4 M570 in past 5 years. I am a CAD designer so the trackball was heavily used. 2 of them had sticky left button and the 2 had fuzzy scroll wheel. Logitech's quality is not as good as it used to e. My first ever M570 lasted 3 years and after that. I had to buy a new one every year.

+1. I have gone through 2 of them and most recently purchased in 2018. I originally started with the Trackman as my hand started to cramp up using a normal mouse for most of the day.

But both models had the sticky left button (starts to double click) but I notice we have a 2 year warranty [Edit make that 3 year limited warranty!] on them so like you I have receipt and serial number and few emails after troubleshooting they are sending me a new one as well!

Now before the warranty claim I purchased another model which was similar in price at the time, Perixx Perimice-720 which is similar but I would say bigger and has a louder click sound for the buttons. Biggest difference is that this model has either USB dongle or Bluetooth built-in which is only possible with Logitech ERGO. So those who might want Bluetooth connection with M570 pricing it's an option. We shall see how long the buttons last; may switch back to M570 if it fails quick.

I have the same issue, what switches do you get to fix it ?
