Is there a version of logitech setpoint that allows the m510 to adjust dpi and x/y scalars? The versions I've tried only allow you to adjust a generic "sensitivity".
Currently the mouse is almost unusable, as it's dpi/scalar values prevent diagonal and round lines from being drawn. Attempts drawing a circles yield a square, with faintly rounded edges. Im hoping there is, because I'd hate to just toss this mouse out with the other trash. It's a entry/mid range mouse, i get that, but it's performance is so sub-par, that i'm really hoping it's simply a setting issue, because I would hate to think any company would think this performance acceptable. It feels like logitech "attempted" to guess the users needs, and with a wide screen monitor the vertical movement is 1/4 speed of horizontal.
If this isn't supported, can anyone recommend another application capable, or frankly another company?
Thanks for any help,

The only thing you can change with the M510 regardless of what Setpoint version you install is just the pointer and scroll speed settings. If you want to manually adjust the DPI of a mouse, you will have to use a different mouse model. The DPI settings ( X/Y DPI ) can be manually changed on a gaming mouse. One good example of this is the G500 mouse. The DPI settings for the G500 mouse has 400, 800, 2000 out-of-box (3 Settings) using the DPI buttons on the mouse and 200 to 5700 adjustable 100 increments with software (5 Settings).

Okay, let me get this straight: I just bought a Logitech M510 mouse for literally twice what most other mice in the store cost because I wanted a reliable, quality product form the "#1 world leader in mice". I plug it in, and its tracking is extremely inconsistent, and, as if blocky tracking was bad enough to begin with, it scrolls as if my monitor is set for 1080x1920 instead of 1920x1080 (leading me to believe there's either something installed sideways in my mouse, or some values that were entered backwards).
Now, after spending twice as much on this awesome mouse from the #1 world leader in mice, the only support option I'm given is "Buy a new mouse"?
Your. Product. Is. Crap.
I can't even try to grit my teeth and get used to the screwy dimensions because the bleedin' thing hops around like a meth-addled bunny if I set the speed to anything higher than Glacier-Speed.
On a scale from "I've disgusted myself for using this product" to "Perfect, I am a happy customer who respects your brand and will purchase your products in the future", I'd say your product falls somewhere between exercising my tab key by not using a mouse at all, and turning on Mouse Keys and rolling around with arrow keys.

Totally agree with OP. The M510 s.u.<.k.s IMO Logitech do not have one decent wireless mouse (high dpi/tracking, comfortable).
Also, Logitech -- stop putting those dumb scroll sensitivity buttons right below the mouse wheel and stop making mouse wheels that wobble left and right. I also have a M705 and it too s.u.<.k.s for these reasons.

My M510 is just not sensitive enough. I have triple monitors so there's way too much mouse dragging to get the cursor to move around. I refuse to increase the "mouse sensitivity" in windows any further than 1:1 (level 6) because any higher makes the cursor skip pixels, it's very undesirable effect.
I made a nice accidental discovery, spraying alcohol onto the bottom of the mouse temporarily increases the sensitivity, I guess by changing the shape/size of the sensor lens. I really like the higher sensitivity, but it slowly fades back to normal as the alcohol evaporates. I wish it was always on high DPI mode.
I don't understand why Logitech even makes these stupid low sensitivity mice. Software can bring it down by scaling down the position. You can't go the other way though - if the mouse resolution is low to begin with, scaling up the movement makes it skip pixels.
My MX518 is much better. I have it set to 1300 DPI and it's just great.
