Hi guys, RadicalTech here welcome back to another review. Today we’re going to take a look at the Logitech MX master, the updated version of the Performance MX. It certainly isn’t a cheap mouse so let’s see if it’s worth your hard earned money.
In the box we get a user manual, the mx master itself, the Logitech unifying receiver and a charging cable.
Logitech has put a lot of time in the design to make it look good and they succeeded. The mx master is a really well designed mouse. It also has a new sensor so you can use it on any surface even glass.
The MX Master is with its many buttons a high end productivity mouse and is not meant for gaming. If you’re left handed you’ve got bad luck because this mouse is only for right handed people.
The mouse is very comfortable, so editing some videos or browsing the web for long periods of time isn’t a problem. There isn’t a pink rest, but that wasn’t a problem for me.
As far as the connectivity goes you can connect via the Logitech unifying receiver or Bluetooth. Connecting is a matter of seconds. You can connect up to 3 different devices and switch among them seamlessly. The USB receiver worked perfectly for me, but I found that when I connected via Bluetooth to my windows 8 laptop chrome crashes after a few minutes I haven’t heard of this problem from anyone else so it could just be my laptop. When connected to my G2 via Bluetooth it works perfectly. The connection is really reliable, I haven’t got a single connectivity drop.
Of course, when it’s a wireless mouse it needs a battery. The MX Master has a Li-Po 500mAh battery which Logitech claims can last you 40 days. I’ve had mine for a week and i haven’t had to recharge it. On the side is a battery indicator which tells you how much juice you’ve got left. If the mx master runs out of battery it can be charged via a micro USB cable. And you can still use it while charging. Logitech claims a 4 minute charge will last you a full day.
The mx master has 6 programmable buttons which you can assign literally any action to via the Logitech options software which is available for mac and windows. So if you’re on Linux you won’t be able to use the mouse to its full potential. The programmable buttons are really handy. I especially liked the gesture button so when I press the thumb button and move the mouse to a side, it does something that is configured on that side. For me the buttons are well placed and i can reach all the buttons easily. The scroll wheel has an infinite scroll mode in which you can quickly scroll and it keeps scrolling for a few seconds. If you want, you can turn this off in the Logitech options software.
At the end, it’s a really great mouse and i recommend it to everyone who is looking for a serious productivity mouse.
