While the mice and keyboards of the big manufacturers are regularly updated or new products are introduced, the trackball market is much quieter and more manageable. The M575 trackball is the only trackball in Logitech’s range besides the considerably more expensive MX Ergo and replaces the old M570, which appeared back in 2010. Logitech advertises ergonomic design, maximum comfort and a very small footprint.
The Ergo M575 Wireless Trackball has been available in graphite and gray-white since December, and the recommended retail price is €49.99. Whether Logitech can keep its promises and the trackball is also worth a look for convinced mouse users, we’ll clarify in the following test.
|Connection||Wireless (2.4 GHz or Bluetooth Low Energy)|
|Sensor||Logitech Advanced Optical Tracking|
|DPI||400 – 2,000|
|Accumulator||1 AA type battery|
|Battery life||Up to 24 months (with USB receiver).
Up to 20 months (with Bluetooth)
|Size||134 x 100 x 48 mm (H x W x D)|
|Colors||Graphite, gray white|
Scope of delivery
In addition to the Ergo M575 trackball itself, the only items in the box are the USB receiver, an AA battery, and a quick start guide. The USB receiver is, as usual for Logitech, stowed in the trackball and the battery is already inserted. All in all, the scope of delivery turns out to be very manageable, but at a price of less than 50€, this doesn’t surprise us negatively.
