Logitech MX Master 2S review

Over the years, the mouse brand I’ve caressed in my paws more than any other is Logitech, so when this review unit came in and I noticed the familiar Logitech packaging, I shrieked with joy: “Mine mofos! MINE!”

The Logitech MX Master 2S is a sexy, wireless, fully customisable, seven-button mouse that’s equipped with a 500 mAh LiPo battery, which is recharged via Micro-USB. Logitech reckons a full charge will yield around 70 days of use, depending on how much you use it – but cleverly, should the mouse suddenly RIP, the recharge port is placed at the spot where you’d normally see the cable on a wired mouse, which means you can simply plug in the charging cable and keep doing your thing.

This mouse maxes out at 4,000 DPI and performs brilliantly. It’s not a gaming mouse, but if you want to play a few games in between bouts of work, it’ll do the trick. It’s feature rich, and playing around with the gesture control it offers is awesome. In Photoshop, for example, you can rotate an image or pan the view using a simple mouse gesture.

I also enjoy the ease with which Logitech allows you to simultaneously connect the MX Master 2S to multiple computers using a feature called Flow. With Logitech Flow and its associated software, you can copy files on one computer, seamlessly move your mouse cursor to the second computer, hit paste, and bam! In this way, you can connect the MX Master 2S to up to three computers.

This mouse is designed exclusively for right-handed peeps, as it has a giant thumb-rest on the left-hand side – which means it’s super comfortable, but only if you’re right-handed. It’s also quite heavy and it’s weighted toward the back, which may take some getting used to if you’re accustomed to a mouse that’s more balanced towards the centre.

8I love this mouse. It just feels right – although for some it may seem a tad heavy. It’s also quite expensive.
