Logitech MX Master Wireless: A luxury mouse for PCs and Macs
I'm David Carnoy from C-net dot com and this is the MX Master wireless mouse which retails for $100 and Logitech says it's its best mouse ever.
Typically, higher-end mice tend to be targeted at gamers and yeah you can certainly use this for gaming but it's designed for day-to-day use, and--dare I say it--actual productivity.
Thanks to Logitech's Dark Field laser technology, it works on just about any surface, even on glass.
I didn't do anything too fancy with it, but it does seem very responsive, precise and smooth.
From an ergonomic standpoint it also feels quite comfortable.
As you might expect from a high-end mouse it does have plenty of extra bells and whistles.
The first of these is an integrated rechargeable battery that's supposed to last up to 40 days on a single charge.
You can connect the MX Master to your Windows or Mac computer with the included unifying receiver, a small USB dongle that will also work with Logitech keyboards.
or via Bluetooth smart technology.
If you go with Bluetooth, you can pair the mouse with up to three devices and switch between a laptop, desktop or say a tablet using the appropriately named Logitech easy switch button on the bottom of the mouse.
Mac users, meanwhile, enjoy the extra perk of gesture support.
Most the multi-finger trackpad gestures can be duplicated.
On the MX Master when holding down an extra key.
It also has a speed adaptive scroll wheel that lets you autoshift from click to click to hyperfast scrolling, along with a thumb wheel for side to side scrolling and page switching.
You can customize all the buttons on the mouse using the LogiTech option software.
It's worth noting however that this mouse is for right-handed operators only, there's no left-handed option.
Logitech says it tried a left-handed mouse a few years ago, but it was a major flop.
Apparently lefties use their right hand for mice or opt for the trackpad.
I currently use a trackball with a Windows PC.
I use at work and an Apple Magic Trackpad.
With an iMac I have at home will both cost less than the MX Master.
My initial few days with it have left me pondering a switch.
I don't know if that makes this the best mouse ever but its certainly worth considering if you're in the market for a premium mouse.
I'm David Conroy and that's the Logitech MX Master wireless mouse.
Thanks for watching.
