Ask any group of graphic designers, gamers, or computer-enthusiasts which mouse they prefer and Logitech will undoubtedly come-up in the conversation. The popular peripheral and accessory maker has introduced the ‘Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse’ this week, and it’s one of the more stunning designs that the company has put forth in its long history.
According to the company’s announcement the hand-sculpted design offers a, “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.”
Charlotte Johs, global vice president of computer peripherals at Logitech said, “The Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is a beautifully designed, customizable mouse with the versatility of control, precision and speed.” Johs then added, “The numerous navigation options and advanced features make it our best mouse ever.”
Previous builds from Logitech include the MX Revolution and Logitech Performance MX, and the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse was specifically designed for comfort, control and speed. In the announcement Logitech stated, “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.”
Fitted with a speed-adaptive scroll wheel, the mouse will allow users to auto-shift from click-to-click to hyper-fast scrolling in an instant. The device also offers a unique thumbwheel for side-to-side scrolling and page switching. When using a Windows or Mac customers can use the included Logitech Unifying Receiver or simply connect via the Bluetooth Smart technology, all while easily pairing the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse with up to three devices. A simple button on the mouse can be customized to replicate gesture controls on a Mac as well.
The Logitech Options software lets you customize the buttons and actions so that you can get more done, even faster. The Logitech Darkﬁeld Laser offers, “superior tracking on virtually any surface, even on glass and high-gloss surfaces,” according to the company.
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.
The new Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is expected to be available in April 2015 for a suggested retail price of $99.99. For more information, please visit logitech.com/mxmaster.
