I currently use the following mice/mouses on different machines:
  • Logitech M-BJ58 (wired mouse)
    Logitech M310t (wireless mouse)
    Logitech M185 (wireless mouse)
    Logitech M325 (wireless mouse)
    hp M-UAE96 (wired mouse)
In general Logitech mice/mouses work fine on Linux Mint EXCEPT they are generally far too sensitive so the settings "Acceleration" and "Sensitivity" always have to be set to their lowest possible values in "Mouse Preferences" - even then they are sometimes too fast. This has been written about in blogs over recent years but doesn't seem to have changed at all in recent version of Mint, unfortunately.

I've had good experiences with all the keyboards I've used with Linux Mint. Since I only use the special keys for volume/muting, I can't comment on others which may be present.

I'm using a Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000 v1.0

Works ok. (with Mint 18.1 Cinnamon)

And a Sandstrom SMBT14 mouse which is supposedly able to switch between Bluetooth and wireless; the former would free up a USB port on my laptop (Lenovo T440s) but so far I haven't succeeded in getting the mouse paired with BlueBerry (ok in wireless mode).

What does working great mean? Are you able to get true functionality out of the side keypad and/or tilt wheel? I'm not.

Also, lets add Logitech M510 to "working as intended".

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.

Logitech K350 Wireless keyboard
Logitech M705 Wireless mouse

Plugged in the USB transmitter and everything works out of the box. Not all of the custom buttons work -- some do, some don't. But it does work.

@ catweazel
This seems to be a wireless input device: QWERTY or QWERTZ?

<SNERK!>

My first wife was Chinese, so naturally so was her father. He worked as an accountant at an autoparts supplier in Laos. One of the "new" guys said he should get a calculator and give up that antique he was using. FIL said there was nothing wrong with it, and after much discussion one of them challenged the other to a "showdown". Well, by this time almost the whole company had heard about it, so they held it in the cafeteria, bets were placed and the competition started.
