    Rating Average

    Logitech M570 The Logitech M570 wireless mouse receives one of the best wireless mouse ratings on the market. It provides a trackball, which allows you to comfortably navigate on your computer without needing to move your arm on any surface. It connects to your computer through the 2.4 GHz wireless technology with a range of up to 30 feet. The wireless receiver is small enough to plug in to a laptop computer but strong enough to pick up a signal from a desktop. The on and off switch saves on battery life so it can last for up to 18 months. It also has a laser sensor to control the speed of your cursor and it puts the control in your hands, literally. The only complaints are that it is a little on the small side. It retails for $49.99.
