Review: Logitech MX Master

Wow, this a really nice mouse!

I’ve been through a fair few different mice over the years and, suffering from pretty bad RSI on & off, I always try to get a nice one! I was an Intellimouse Explorer guy for ages – it won a Red Dot design award too, from what I remember. It was pretty comfy and used by a lot of pro gamers back in the day I think.

After that I went over to the Apple Magic Mouse for a while, but to be honest the whole touch-scroll thing it did was pretty annoying in a lot of contexts. Plenty of apps didn’t like it – sent Google Maps completely mental zooming in and out constantly for a start. Even more importantly though, it was so low profile that it didn’t support my hand enough and made my RSI quite a bit worse… Back to the Intellimouse.

Then recently my third one of them finally died and I thought I’d try something new. I thought about the Razer Mamba, which got great reviews, but it was about £150 which is absurd for a mouse. ….so I went for the Logitech MX Master and I’m pretty pleased! Wireless, great hand support, nice click weight, recharges via USB and lots of other nice things but I’m bored of writing this already and why am I even putting hardware reviews on this blog jesus christ this is a boring article right I’m off to do something useful with my life…
