Why the Logitech MX Master is the best mouse you can buy today

We see the MX Master as the best mouse available in 2016. The pointer from Logitech offers great levels of functionality for the price and is the flagship mouse for a very good reason.

Looking at the MX Master one can see just why this thing is one of the best pointers to come out of Logitech. The ergonomics of the unit itself makes it comfortable to hold, regardless as to which grip style you prefer and everything feels well built. It's fairly pricey, but isn't going to destroy one's budget like some of the gaming mice out there. There are also a bunch of handy features baked into the experience that make the price worth the investment.

First up is the receiver, which is entirely optional. Logitech has made it so you can conveniently use Bluetooth should your computer already have the wireless tech built in. If you need to rely on Logitech's own dongle, this little unit will be able to support up to 6 devices from Logitech's Unifying wireless system simultaneously, which is ideal for connecting multiple Logitech devices — like a keyboard or trackpad for those that prefer alternative inputs.

As for the mouse, the MX Master can be linked to up to three devices at once. A button underneath the device enables the wielder to switch between connections, which makes for interesting scenarios in the home and office. But it's not all about the wireless capabilities of the mouse, since in addition to featuring a scroll wheel that actually adapts to speed, there's also a secondary thumb scroll wheel located next to two thumb buttons.

But that's not all, there's also what the company calls a gesture button — set up your own custom actions to be carried out by your digital gestures. Logitech has deployed its own Darkfield sensor, which enables the mouse to handle surface tracking with little issue, and that includes on glass. Overall performance is solid, as one would expect from a mouse that sets you back almost $100.

But just because we like the MX Master enough to put it on top of our Best Mice of 2016 list, it doesn't mean this mouse is a definite purchase for everyone. The handheld pointer is a personal device that needs to match your requirements. Should you need a wired mouse, the MX Master clearly isn't for you, nor can it be cranked up to 6000 DPI for super-sensitive gaming.
