The Logitech MX Master is a premium wireless mouse geared towards productivity (although it can definitely be used for gaming!) With a pretty intense ergonomic design, this mouse is sculpted to fit perfectly into anyone’s hand – big or small. I’ve surveyed multiple users with this mouse and we all come to the same consensus, this thing is badass! With its steep incline and cleverly molded thumb rest, this mouse is an absolute pleasure to use.
The left and right clicks are nothing special, they do have a nice feel to them, however it isn’t anything I haven’t seen from Logitech, especially coming from one of their mid-range wireless mice.
Aside from its outstanding ergonomics, the MX Master has some other solid traits. Its vertical scroll wheel just has a very satisfying feel when scrolling, and in addition features a ‘hyper-scroll’ functionality which is actually very useful. This feature will activate once you start scrolling at a fast rate. Once the mouse detects this, it will let the scroll wheel go at full speed – great for scrolling through timelines, group chats, or editing sessions. At first I was skeptical about it, however now I don’t know how I ever got away with NOT having it. Adding to its practicality, it is very easy to trigger the scroll wheel back to its normal mode – very nice to see.
Now I specifically said VERTICAL scroll wheel, and this was for a reason. The MX Master also comes with a HORIZONTAL scroll wheel – DOPE! Personally, I haven’t much usage out of it besides while video editing, however this can easily be a selling point to others.
To the side of this scroll wheel we find 2 macros, which personally I found a bit out of the way for practical use. If they moved the horizontal scroll wheel over along with these two buttons just a bit, I would be more satisfied. Luckily, I’m usually not the one to use these macros, and to be frank, if I were, I’d buy a gaming mouse.
Under all of this we find out matte thumb rest, which actually does contain a button that you can click with your thumb. Contrary to other reviews online, I found this button easy to press, and can picture it fitting into my daily routine fluidly. By default, it is set to Task View on Windows 10 which shows you all of your open windows… but I DO have 3 monitors so this wasn’t too useful to me…
WELL, the great thing about this mouse is that EVERYTHING on it is programmable with Logitech’s software, which I personally found very sufficient. So, whether you want to reverse your left and right click, program the little button under the scroll wheel, or set your thumb button to open a calculator, this software has plenty of options. Another cool feature embedded in this software is Gestures – another spec that I haven’t found useful, but seem pretty cool. Gestures allows you to hold down the thumb button and drag the mouse in a certain direction. Doing so will do something that you declare in the Logitech software. For example, you can set it so when you drag down while holding the thumb button, for all your windows to minimize.
The MX Master also features Darkfield Laser Tracking – which is a fancy way of saying HEY, this thing works on glass! Which is a nice feature on some other Logitech mice, if needed.
