I have always had a preferential treatment towards gaming mice, mostly because they fit my ridiculously large hands and because it gives me a reason to game whenever I want to. When it comes to wireless mice that are made for work, you can’t necessarily game with them because it just wouldn’t be the same. Secondly, there are no macro keys on most mice like that. With that said, the Logitech MX Master 2S is one such mouse I will use when it comes to work.
Sculpted for your Palm
I’m much too familiar with gaming mice, so much so that the weird/unique shape of the Logitech MX Master 2S threw me off for a little bit. Instead of having a more ambidextrous look, the Logitech MX Master 2S is made for right-handers. The slope on its left side is where your thumb rests, and it is quite comfortable.
The rest of the mouse is covered is a smooth rubbery texture while the thumb rest comes with a ribbed geometric design to give it some much-needed grip. While it may not look appealing, the Logitech MX Master 2S grows on you. It also takes away a lot of the strain on your palm and wrist, due to its odd yet comfortable shape.
Making Work Easy and Efficient
The Logitech MX Master 2S was made to keep everything smooth, productive and efficient. Thanks to Logitech Flow, it creates a seamless workflow, especially when you must work on more than one device. This allows you to move the move in-between three computers at once where you can even copy/paste text or send files and images over. Logitech Flow helps to eliminate the tedious process of having to take files, images or texts from a different computer through a USB drive.
How all this is done is also thanks to Bluetooth low-energy technology as well as Logitech’s Easy Switch technology. This is what allows you to connect the Logitech MX Master 2S to as many as three devices simultaneously. You can also easily and seamlessly switch between computers with a push of a button.
Made for Mac and Windows
While most mice these days are made for both Mac and Windows operating systems, the Logitech MX Master 2S takes it up a notch. With video rendering and picture editing being one of the reasons many creatives use a Mac, the Logitech MX Master 2S can help you with that. It’s side-scrolling wheel located right above the thumb makes it easy to scroll left and right without any hassle. The main scroll wheel is also hyper-efficient, making it easy to go through long documents or web pages.
The Logitech MX Master 2S is called a master for a reason; it is the master of any surface. With or without a mousepad, it can still be used with precise tracking. Whether it’s on wood or glass countertop, the Logitech MX Master 2S works well on all surfaces, thanks to its 4,000 DPI precision sensor.
Lasting Longer than Usual
With my limited experience with wireless mice, I’ve never come across any that tout themselves to last up to 70 days on a single charge. Even by standards, 70 days seems to be a bit of a stretch. So far, I’ve used this mouse for the better part of two months and I’ve not needed to charge it at all so it’s fair to say it could actually last that long. Of course, when you do end up charging the Logitech MX Master 2S, it takes only three minutes to give it enough juice to last a full day.
However, if you want it to last the full 70-day duration, just leave it charging as you would with any normal device. That way, you let it recharge to its full capacity.
Seven Active Buttons
The Logitech MX Master 2S comes with seven active buttons, which is a lot, seeing as its usually just made for work. Aside from the usual left- and right-click buttons, above the thumb rest sits the back and forward button, allowing you to go back or forward when browsing the internet. The thumb rest is also an active button that lets you switch between your apps and programs, instead of having to press Alt + Tab every time. This works really well when you’re busy crunching out work and do not want to disrupt your productivity.
