Only left and right click buttons trigger mouse press (on press) and mouse release (on release) events as they should. The other buttons trigger both events on press. The gesture (thumb) button triggers lots of events and is very hard to program. The horizontal scroll isn't really that helpful as you can program horizontal scrolling with wheel button pressed.

No button to simulate the control so you can ctrl+click (except left and right click) all buttons trigger events on press
Using only one input device allows you to more easily achieve a state of flow. Ditching your mouse will help you focus. This is because when you have to take your hands on and off the keyboard it's very easy to get disoriented and have your hands, mouse, cursor, or eyes in the wrong position. See More
Keyboards are the best programmer's tool. One benefit from being able to navigate (for the most part) around an OS, program, or especially an IDE without using a mouse gives you a better understanding of how it works and where it shines and where it doesn't. See More
The included Mouse Manager software allows you to assign different functions to the buttons such as hotkeys, Windows commands, or media control. You can reduce the amount of clicking you have to do by assigning a double-click button, or set the mouse to double-click automatically after a short pause. Static strain can also be reduced by pressing and holding a button momentarily to simulate continuous pressing. See More
Rather than twisting your forearm to abide the requirements of a traditional mouse, the VerticalMouse lets your arm rest in a natural pose while you navigate. Add to that browser buttons and customizable software on top of a navigating experience that is not only better for you but one of the smoothest in the consumer category and you have a easy to use everyday mouse.

Using a stationary mouse will keep wrist and arm movement down. The trackball being operated by the thumb makes for great comfort (do not recommend finger based track balls). A trackball doesn't require a large flat surface, though next to the keyboard still tends to be most comfortable. See More
There's no ignoring the fact that this trackball feels very cheap. It weighs next to nothing, a detriment to a device that's meant to remain stationary on one's desktop, and the controls are not only layed out poorly, but activate for even the most gentle of breezes. Logitech should be ashamed about this one. See More

To get the latest drivers or edit settings you have to download "synapse" an "online cloud device updater and profile storage" application. You have to register an account with your email and have it running in the background constantly for changes to take effect. See More
Although the lights on the mouse look nice, they may bother or be distracting to some people. If they are too distracting, they can be turned off but that does require proprietary software that many do not like having installed. See More
I'm enjoying this mouse as much as its predecessor (MX Master) so far, but I haven't owned it long enough to report on the most pressing question about it: build quality. My first MX Master died after barely a year of ownership, almost like it knew when its own warranty expired. Considering both models retail for USD$80, this second edition needs to last far longer to justify the expense. See More

It can be outfitted with two different grips (a precision one and a wide grip one), has an adjustable weight, where the user can add up to 28g of weight to the mouse, and features on-the-fly adjustable DPI that can switch automatically depending on the program in use. There are also two scrolling settings - notched and smooth. Even the LEDs on the mouse are color customizable, so you can set a different color for different profiles. See More
Some of G605's may experience problems with the middle button quite early, it might be something related to the manufacturing. You can use electronic Contact cleaner (no need to open them), seems to help for years to come. See More
i have two of these. Had a G900 and two G700's before. They're great mice, outstanding battery life and responsiveness even at low DPI Great for productivity as it has 6 customizable side buttons. The software has been working like a charm from day one. Anything else Logitech released after I consider inferior. Certainly lack things compared to the G602. Cannot recommend this one enough.
