Logitech has recently released the company’s most advanced wireless mouse yet, the Logitech MX Master wireless mouse. The MX Master Wireless mouse is the successor of the MX Wireless mouse, and is basically designed for users who are looking for a fast, precise and comfortable mouse that can work with multiple screens or even operating systems. It’s also designed for users who are looking for a wireless solution that can be connected via Bluetooth technology. The Logitech MX Master can be used in both Windows and Mac OS and can be connected up to three devices at once. It also features Darkfield Laser Sensor which works in any surface even on high-gloss surface or glass with 4mm minimum thickness. Check out the rest of its features and specifications from the official release below.
Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse Features
Encompassing the best of Logitech’s industry-leading mouse innovations into a hand-sculpted design, the MX Master Wireless Mouse is the new paradigm for precise, fast, comfortable computer navigation. For people who work across multiple screens, devices and operating systems, the new mouse is optimized for controlling this complex environment with precision.
According to Charlotte Johs, global vice president of computer peripherals at Logitech: “The Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is a beautifully designed, customizable mouse with the versatility of control, precision and speed,”. “The numerous navigation options and advanced features make it our best mouse ever.”
The latest mouse in a lineage that includes the Logitech MX Revolution and Logitech Performance MX, the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is perfectly sculpted for comfort, and hand-crafted for control and speed. The mouse’s shape supports your hand and wrist in a natural position making it easy to enjoy a fluid experience with its well positioned buttons and wheels.
It has a speed-adaptive scroll wheel that lets you auto-shift from click-to-click to hyper-fast scrolling, and a unique thumbwheel for side-to-side scrolling and page switching. Connect to your Windows® or Mac® computer through the included Logitech Unifying Receiver or Bluetooth® Smart technology, and you can pair the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse with up to three devices, allowing you to work on your desktop, laptop, or tablet. With a touch of the Logitech Easy-SwitchTM button, you can freely switch between each device, and it has a button that can be customized to replicate gesture controls on Mac® computers so you can accomplish more, faster.
For customization, Logitech OptionsTM software lets you customize the buttons and actions to suit your needs. And the Logitech Darkﬁeld LaserTM offers superior tracking on virtually any surface, even on glass and high-gloss surfaces.
The MX Master has a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 40 days on a full charge depending on usage, and an indicator light will notify you when the battery is getting low. Four minutes of charging gives you one day of usage and you can continue using the mouse while it charges, eliminating any risk of downtime.
