The Logitech M510 is a very straightforward wireless mouse that has a fairly generic design. It's a rather heavy mouse since it uses AA batteries for power. Its performance isn't suitable for high-sensitivity users as it can only go up to 2200 CPI. This is an affordable mouse for people who don't care much about how accurate or responsive the mouse is, but simply want to browse the web. However, this mouse might be a bit big for people with small hands, but there is a smaller version available, although we didn't test it. It's also fully ambidextrous as you can switch the left and right clicks if you want to use it left-handed.

Our Verdict

6.7 Mixed Usage

The Logitech M510 is an okay mouse for mixed usage. Its wireless and straightforward design can be suitable for the office or when traveling, but that's about it. This mouse's sensor doesn't perform well with fast movement and won't be recommended for any type of gaming.

See our Mixed Usage recommendations
7.1 Office/Multimedia

The Logitech M510 is decent for the office. This mouse doesn't have the best sensor performance but it won't matter for generic web browsing or office work. Unfortunately, its ergonomics aren't the best due to its fairly odd curves. On the upside, it's completely wireless and offers a good amount of programmable buttons to make your work a bit more fluid.

7.1 Travel

The Logitech M510 is decent for traveling. Its wireless design with storage for its receiver makes it very portable. There's also a smaller version of this mouse available if you find it too bulky to travel with. While it uses AA batteries for power, they're rated for 24 months, which is very long.

5.8 Video Games (FPS)

The Logitech M510 is sub-par for video games. Its sensor isn't designed for games and doesn't perform well with very quick mouse movement. It's also very heavy and doesn't have as low a click latency as gaming mice.

6.6 Video Games (MMO)

While the Logitech M510 has a decent amount of programmable inputs, this mouse isn't designed for MMO gaming. Its ergonomics are just okay and this mouse probably won't be comfortable to use during intense and long gaming sessions.

See our Video Games (MMO) recommendations
4.2 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Logitech M510 isn't designed as an ultra-light gaming mouse. It uses AA batteries for power, which makes it extremely heavy, especially for its small size.

Compared to other mice

The Logitech M510 is a decent and very affordable office mouse. It might feel a bit flimsy when compared to higher-end office mice, especially due to its very wobbling scroll wheel. The M510's performance is also noticeably worse than most other mice, but this shouldn't matter if you're just looking for a web-browsing mouse. See our recommendations for the best mice and the best wireless mice. If you're interested in Logitech products, also check out the best Logitech mice.

Logitech MX Master 2S
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Logitech MX Master 2S is a better mouse than the Logitech M510. Its performance is better and the MX Master 2S' shape is more ergonomic for long periods of use. It also has a side scroll wheel and is noticeably better-built than the cheaply made M510.

Logitech MX Master 3
SEE PRICE
B&H

The Logitech MX Master 3 is a better office-oriented mouse than the Logitech M510, but it's noticeably more expensive. The MX Master 3 has an ergonomic shape and features motion enabled commands too. It has two scroll wheels and has a professional design, while the M510 looks a bit generic and cheaply made. If your budget allows it, there's no reason to pick the M510 over the MX Master 3.

Logitech G305
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Logitech G305 is a better overall mouse than the Logitech M510 when it comes to performance, but its low-profile design might not be for everyone working in an office. The M510 feels a bit cheaper but is suited for a wider variety of hand sizes and grips. The M series from Logitech is more office-oriented, while the G series is more geared towards gaming.

Razer DeathAdder Elite
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Razer DeathAdder Elite is a better performing mouse than the Logitech M510, but the Logitech is wireless, which might be better for people looking for a straightforward wireless mouse for the office. The DeathAdder is more geared towards gaming and features full RGB lighting and an excellent sensor performance. 

Logitech Pebble M350
SEE PRICE
B&H

The Logitech M510 is a better mouse than the Logitech Pebble M350. It has two side buttons, customizable performance settings, and you can remap its buttons. It has nice grips on both sides and is slightly more comfortable to use than the M350. However, if you're on the move often, the M350 might be a better option thanks to its small form factor.

Razer Atheris
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Razer Atheris is a more versatile wireless mouse than the Logitech M510, but its small size might be bothersome for some users. The Atheris is a great travel mouse that offers great performance as well. The Logitech M510's performance is quite disappointing and it isn't really made for games.
