In the universe of computer mice, Logitech is one of the best known manufacturers. This one, the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse, is not part of their “G Series”. At a price of $99.99 USD, or $119.99 CAD, it is their most expensive offering in that class.
The MX Master is a five button, right handed mouse. While that is not particularly exciting, one interesting feature is the horizontal scrolling tumbler on the thumb rest. The wheel on top scrolls up and down, while the one on the side can scroll left and right (or be reconfigured with Logitech's software). It is also a laser mouse that is capable of tracking on many types of surfaces, including thicker sheets of glass. It can be paired to three separate devices at once, either by Bluetooth or Logitech's proprietary receiver. Its rechargeable battery lasts about 40 days of 6 hour per day usage. Four minutes of charging yields about six hours of usage, and you can apparently even use the mouse while tethered.
The Logitech MX Master will be available in April for $99.99 USD.

Dont forget that its logitech which means within 3-4 months of light use it will develope double click issue and if you send it for service you will be scammed out of those $100 spent on that fugly mouse.

Same – I’ve had dozens of Logitech products. I had an issue with a grand total of one. It was replaced instantly by helpful tech support. I don’t get the hate.
I had the double-click
I had the double-click problem with my Logitech Performance MX wireless mouse and the Logitech support people sent me a new one without any problem. I have also had them replace a keyboard. My mouse is so good that I bought another one for my laptop. Logitech support is the best in the world in my book. They have always been very helpful and replaced anything not working.
Wasn’t that Razer/Mad Catz?
Wasn’t that Razer/Mad Catz? Yeah, Logitech makes pretty bad crap too, but Razer and Mad Catz are just so much worse with those issues you’ve mentioned it’s not even funny.
Nope. Not me.
Nope. Not me.
Had A Performance MX for 18 months that developed a charging problem. They replaced it free of charge.
It’s nice to see the
It’s nice to see the electronically-actuated clickwheel make its return (last, and only, seen on the excellent MX Revolution), but it appears to have lost side-scroll completely. The movement of side-scroll to the side-wheel means that wheel is essentially useless (cannot reassign) if you need the side-scroll function. No replacement for the MX Revolution’s 3-way thumb-wheel. It appears that NEITHER of the wheels click in, as the mouse is only listed as 5-button (left and right click, ‘search’ button below top scroll wheel, two +/- buttons next to side scroll wheel).
All in all, a significant step back in functionality from the MX Revolution.
Finally something that may
Finally something that may replace my ageing Microsoft Natural 6000
Scott, please test this mouse
Scott, please test this mouse in Blender 3D, if you can get a review sample, I’d love to see some serious reviews of CAD/3d Graphics uses/performance for mice, and not just gaming mice, every once and a while.
I’d be a very bad reviewer
I'd be a very bad reviewer for this mouse. I'm a lefty. Thanks for the request, though!
