INPUT DEVICE: LOGITECH MX MASTER 3 MOUSE: LOGITECH STICKS WITH A WINNING FORMULA
Macworld|April 2021
I have two desktop Mac setups, one at home and one at the Macworld office (ah, going to the office, those were the days).

Both those setups have Logitech mice. My work setup has the Performance Mouse MX (go.macworld. com/pfmx) that I’ve been using for over ten (!) years. At home, I have the original MX Master (go.macworld.com/omxm), which I’ve been using for four years. Suffice to say, I love these mice. They have a similar design that fits my hand beautifully, they feel great, and they’re highly functional.

Logitech recently released the MX Master 3 (go.macworld.com/msx3), the latest entry in its MX series that also works with the iPad. It has many of the same features as the two mice I’ve been using, but it has one design change that’s an improvement, making it a slightly better mouse.

DESIGN AND BUTTONS

The MX Master 3 design doesn’t deviate much from previous MX mice, including the MX Master 2S (go.macworld.com/ lm2s), its predecessor, which I have not used. Made for the right hand (sorry, lefties), the Master 3 has a cradle for your thumb, and the body of the mouse rests under your palm. It’s a comfortable design for me, and I never experience any fatigue or discomfort. (For reference, I wear a large size men’s glove.)

In addition to the standard left and right mouse buttons, there are three buttons for your thumb: one at the base of the cradle, and back/forward (or undo/ redo) buttons at the top. The predecessors to the MX Master 3 had the back/forward button behind the thumbwheel and stacked on top of each other, which I found awkward, so I didn’t use those buttons. But they’re now placed below the thumbwheel in a more intuitive front and back alignment, which is an improvement.
