Logitech MX Master 3 – Review

There's nothing worse than a below-par input device: A mouse that stutters and often refuses to move the cursor at all, or a trackpad that feels cheap and nasty. They drive you to distraction. Logitech's MX Master 3 is a mouse you can rely on, but quality comes at a price.

Available in graphite or mid-grey, it’s designed with productivity in mind (it lacks the ultra-low latency that defines a hardcore gaming mouse). Connection to your Mac is through a USB dongle or Bluetooth.

Using the Logitech Flow software, you can control multiple computers with the mouse, seamlessly switching from one to the other and even copying and pasting text, images and files between them. Its 4000 dpi sensor works on almost any surface, and its buttons and scroll wheels are, of course, configurable, with catering for app-specific profiles.

Physically, the MX Master 3 is beyond reproach. It’s large and fairly heavy, so it will best suit those who like a meaty mouse under their palm. Its buttons are within easy reach, and it’s fast and accurate when driving your cursor across the screen or scrolling a window.

It’s not cheap, but the quality is excellent. And when you spread the cost over the many, many years for which you’ll be using the mouse, it doesn’t seem overpriced.
