The MX series is Logitech's premium range. Originally starting with the Performance Mx a few years back, and now consisting of the MX Anywhere 2 and MX Master. I purchased myself the latter; I plan to use it for general computer (NOT COMPETITIVE GAMING) use alongside my new Metabox Prime Laptop (See my review of that here): viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1924&hilit=metabox
I got the MX Master on sale from JB-HiFi for $99; the sticker price was $129, but online it was listed as $99, so that's what I payed. The Master recently got two new colors (Only one of which is available in Australia from what I can see; but it's a garish beige that looks part of an ancient IBM setup). So, naturally I went with the original Black + Copper colour, which I think looks pretty snazzy.
Let's take a look inside shall we?
Opening the magnetic flap on the front shows the mouse itself in it's clear plastic shield. On the flap there are the simple instructions on how to pair the device. The Master supports both Bluetooth and the classic little WiFi USB dongle we all have 10 of lying around.
The mouse can store memory of 3 different Bluetooth devices, so that you can switch between 3 computers with the press of a button. Fun Fact: It works with android phones! You can actually use any wired USB mouse with an android device using a USB-OTG adapter cable for your device.
Here is the mouse and USB dongle, now take a look at that geometric design on the thumb rest. Do ya think it might have been inspired by a certain company's graphics card design?
Now, this is one of the best reasons to pick this mouse over any other, in my opinion. The horizontal scroll wheel. I know there are those scroll wheels that click lerft and right for horizontal movement across a page, but this is an actual analogue input. It is really smooth and just plain fun to use.
Over on the bottom of the device you can see the buttons. The last one, with 1 2 and 3 above it is the switcher that lets you instantly swap between Bluetooth devices, like laptops or the aforementioned android devices. A lot of desktop PCs now have Bluetooth too. If your device does not have bluetooth, just use the USB wiFi dongle that's included.
I am really excited to get using this mouse; I will be sure to post a full review once I have used it for about a week. Thanks for checking out the unboxing
