The M570 trackball is full of controls. With more than five controls on the trackball, controlling your computer will be way and programmable. In addition to offering the ability to flip quickly over long documents or lengthy lists, you can program some of the controls to suit your specific needs.
This device’s wireless transmission uses 2.4 GHz. The wireless range can extend up to 30 feet away. On another note, the trackball can run for 18 months on a single AA battery, which is impressive.

One of the possible problems if you are a lefty is that it can only be used by right-handed people. Many trackballs nowadays are ambidextrous, so this could be a problem depending on the user.
For first time users this trackball may need some getting used to as the additional controls may take some getting used to. This is especially true for the controls that offer programmability options, as they require some tweaking and software downloads from Logitech’s website. However, more controls are great for gamers and are always a plus as an option for those that need or want them.
We also should note as minor issues that the scroll-wheel on the M570 might seem a bit resistant for some. The physical placement of the scroll-wheel may also pose a problem for some users, as it is a little out of reach for people with tiny hands.
