Logitech has a lot of mice, but the MX series is worth it separately. This is the top line of the most pumped mice for work. Logitech M190 Review: Minimalist Mouse
MX has its strongest qualities: thoughtful ergonomics, convenient setting for their tasks, and frequently used applications. With the Logitech example, the MX Master 3 will show you how good my new work tool is.
In general, it would be good to test it in conjunction with the old generation of MX mice to compare the sensations. But it just so happened that I preferred the Magic Trackpad 2 trackpad for iMac for several years and then impulsively switched to the mouse – I wanted new sensations.
Logitech MX Master 3: Ergonomics
I’ll tell you right away that everyone’s palms are different, so this is a purely individual assessment of the mouse’s features. My palm is not large or small, medium-sized. With the Logitech MX Master 3, I quickly became friends. The mouse of comfortable shape: convex, moderately plump, and large, with a wide leg under the thumb.
The interior is covered with plastic and rubberized coating. Along the case is a notch – the relief texture is well felt under the fingers. The palms will be comfortable: the hand is tight, does not slide, the sensations correspond to expectations. The body is of a whimsical shape: the left part is above the right, so the hand takes a natural position and does not get tired during the day.
The mouse, due to the design features, is sharpened under right-handers. So if you’re used to wielding your left hand, the MX Master 3 is not your option.
The mouse is confidently standing on the surface. It has four legs, slides perfectly. I’ve got a big cloth mat on the table, and he’s been great. I tried a mouse at work and on the table’s wooden surface, and on the glass table of the cafe, everything is fine.
There are two metal wheels on the body: one is at the top, and the other is on the side. The upper wheel is responsible for vertical scrolling, and it is inertial and works accurately, conveniently flipping long rides on sites or long plates. In this case, you can move very accurately and carefully through the text, if smoothly and gradually rotate the wheel. You can turn this mode off by clicking on a small button. In this case, the wheel will spin without restrictions and precise tactile communication. A special remark for connoisseurs of silence: wheels rotate silently in complete silence.
The side extra wheel is useful for horizontal flicking: you can switch between tabs in the browser or move along the tape during the video montage.
Two large buttons are responsible for the main actions. A rather loud and tangible click accompanies the presses. On the side, you can find a couple of auxiliary keys. They are located below the side wheel. Click on them comfortably, moving the thumb just below. These buttons work almost silently.
The mouse’s belly is a Darkfield sensor, a power key, and a switch button between three devices. The sensor works on almost any coating, including glass, wood, or fabric. It is configured in a wide range of 200 to 4000 points per inch. The sensitivity is excellent. There is nothing more to say.
As for the three-device mode, this is the case. The mouse can be used in turn with different computers or tablets, individually adjusting the keys’ actions. Then you can switch between ready profiles.
For example, you work at the computer, put a table next to it and can control them at the same time. And it can be devices on different platforms: for example, iMac and Windows tablet. Or, for example, you can bring a laptop from home, work for it, and then immediately go to the office computer work screen with a simple mouse gesture. Even files from one device to another can be copied, but if you sit under a VPN, the magic won’t work: the feature is active within one local network.
The mouse responds to both physical keystrokes and gestures. In the first case, press the buttons. In the second, you need to press a small button under your thumb and move the mouse in one of the four directions. Accordingly, up, down, left, or right. Since I use macOS, the mouse has taken over the control of the system’s familiar gestures.
Logitech MX Master 3: Connection Management
There are two ways to connect, both wireless: either radio or Bluetooth. In the first case, you need to use a complete unifying. It connects to the USB-A port of the computer. In the second, the mouse needs to be found in the list of available Bluetooth devices nearby.
Logitech Options app
Through the app, you set up gestures and work scenarios for the support buttons. Popular Adobe apps like Photoshop or Premier, Macque Final Cut, and MS Office package including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are supported by default. In Photoshop, for example, a vertical wheel is responsible for the shift, the side wheel is responsible for changing the size of the brush, and the side buttons are responsible for the cancellation and repetition of the action. But no one prevents you from going into the settings and setting commands on their own from the list of available actions.
One charge for two months!
According to the manufacturer, the mouse has excellent autonomy, one charge, enough up to 70 days of use. I bought mine at the end of December, immediately fully charged, and began to use it. I write the text in mid-February – I use the mouse every day. It is not going to sit down.
The mouse is charged via USB Type-C, located in front. The recharging cable is included, USB Type-C on the one hand and USB Type-A on the other. Just in case, I will say that while the mouse is connected by cable, it can also be used. Although taking into account fast charging, it is unlikely that you will need this feature.
I note the speed of fast charging: the mouse will work an hour after one minute on the charge.
Logitech MX Master 3: Price and Colors
On sale, you can find Logitech MX Master 3 in two colors: gray and graphite. There is also a special version for Mac in color “Grey Space” (Space Gray). It goes without a Logitech Unifying adapter, and instead of a USB Type-A cable on USB Type-C, it gets a USB Type-C on USB Type-C.

Final Impressions of Logitech MX Master 3
I liked the Logitech MX Master 3 mouse with a comfortable shape that fits my arm perfectly. Also, on its side is a great time and convenient charging via USB Type-C, a convenient application with many additional settings and profiles for multiple devices. It is a comfortable and pleasant accessory for work – I got exactly what I wanted.
