Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse: Why It’s Worth the Money
I never thought I’d be a person who buys a $99 mouse. I just couldn’t justify it when I had a free one that came with an old tower I bought from Comp USA (RIP). My thoughts were that all a mouse needed to do was to point, click, and life goes on.
Then, in 2016, I started learning how to code and eventually landed a gig that wanted me to do it for a regular paycheck. I started getting familiar with professional software like the VS Code, Adobe Suite, Sketch, and Figma. And in my free time, I’d mess around with video editing in DaVinci Resolve.
Between then and now, the mice I’ve worked with have consisted of the free Comp USA special and similar company-provided equipment. The most advanced mouse I got my hands on was an old Apple Magic Mouse (not sure what model/series).
Over the years, I’ve come to realize how many functions a mouse can have. It can be a powerful tool that can enable you to work smarter, faster, and more comfortably.
Now, I view the computer mouse with more appreciation, and not simply as a point-and-click piece of plastic.
The Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse
I decided to upgrade my free mouse to Logitech’s MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse.
Why? It was an old wired mouse that was indeed reliable but cumbersome when switching between my work laptop and personal laptop. And the wire that ran across my desk was becoming a space-consuming eyesore.
I also realized that the MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse had so much more utility to offer than my simple stock mouse. It would allow me to work more efficiently in the professional software mentioned above.
At the time of writing, I’ve spent a week straight testing it out on the programs I use for work and switching between Mac OS and Windows (Mac OS for my personal use, and Windows for work).
The transition to Logitech’s MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse was immediately felt.
Here are some of the main takeaway benefits:
- Easy, fast, and quiet scrolling
- Reliable connectivity
- Comfortable in the hand over long periods of time
- Seven (customizable) buttons = quite the convenience and efficiency upgrade
- No mouse pad required (even on glass) = more desk real estate
- Wireless = no clutter and even more desk real estate
Working with the MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse maximized my workflow efficiency and overall made it a more enjoyable experience. For those reasons alone, I believe it’s worth the price tag.
So, if you’re in the market to upgrade your workstation setup, I highly recommend adding the Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse to the list.
