Logitech Unveils its Most Advanced Wireless Mouse

Today Logitech opened up a world of new possibilities with the introduction of the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse. Encompassing the best of Logitech's industry-leading mouse innovations into a hand-sculpted design, the MX Master is the new paradigm for precise, fast, comfortable computer navigation. For people who work across multiple screens, devices and operating systems, the new mouse is optimized for controlling this complex environment with precision.

"The Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is a beautifully designed, customizable mouse with the versatility of control, precision and speed," said Charlotte Johs, global vice president of computer peripherals at Logitech. "The numerous navigation options and advanced features make it our best mouse ever." The latest mouse in a lineage that includes the Logitech MX Revolution and Logitech Performance MX, the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is perfectly sculpted for comfort, and hand-crafted for control and speed. The mouse's shape supports your hand and wrist in a natural position making it easy to enjoy a fluid experience with its well­positioned buttons and wheels.
It has a speed-adaptive scroll wheel that lets you auto-shift from click-to-click to hyper-fast scrolling, and a unique thumbwheel for side-to-side scrolling and page switching. Connect to your Windows or Mac computer through the included Logitech Unifying Receiver or Bluetooth Smart technology, and you can pair the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse with up to three devices, allowing you to work on your desktop, laptop, or tablet. With a touch of the Logitech Easy-SwitchTM button, you can freely switch between each device, and it has a button that can be customized to replicate gesture controls on Mac computers so you can accomplish more, faster.

For customization, Logitech Options software lets you customize the buttons and actions to suit your needs. And the Logitech Darkfield Laser offers superior tracking on virtually any surface, even on glass and high-gloss surfaces.

The MX Master has a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 40 days on a full charge depending on usage, and an indicator light will notify you when the battery is getting low. Four minutes of charging gives you one day of usage and you can continue using the mouse while it charges, eliminating any risk of downtime.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is expected to be available in April 2015 for a suggested retail price of $99.99.

I have had a MX 1000 laser mouse years ago, nice mouse but it was too heavy for using all day, uncomfortable for all day use

All I want is successor of G9x or G9x re-release, G502 Proteus isn't what I expected it to be (Nevertheless it is a top notch mouse). Come on Logitech make it happen!

Looks premium, though I must put my hand first to see how it feels. They did release a WiFi mouse this year, just not what I expected :)

You having a bad experience with a Logitech Product doesn't mean the whole Brand sucks ass... Because that's what you're saying.

I'm using Logitech for many years and never experienced any issues, while Razer Mouse died after 2 weeks.

It's a shame they ditched the MX518/G500 design with the new G-Series.

I have rather big hands (20cm from Middle Finger to Wrist) and using a mix between Palm and Fingertip Grip. I tried the older G602 and newer G402, but they are simply too small compared to my G500s.

2 Weeks ago i also gave the Roccat Kone XTD a try, it had the perfect size but many flaws. Extremely heavy Scroll Wheel, Double Click Left Button and the Coating makes it slippery to lift up.

bad experience is an understatement, over a period of 10 years(2004-2014) I have lost ₹2,50,000(my 6 months salary) due to crappy Logitech products. Also spent nearly 11 months visiting their service centre listening to lies, arrogant replies and threatening those f***tards with legal action and physical violence just to get service for failed products. Apart from wasted time and money I have spent two years getting treated for fungal infection which I was infected with due to Logitechs use of hazardous materials in their headset(G35).
I am waiting for the day when I read about bankruptcy of this brand that I once respected and loved for its design and products. In general though avoid logitech products like a plague, if you are concerned about you health and well being.

Sounds like you rage a lot, perhaps that's why your Gear dies on you.

the rage against logitech didn't start until last year while trying to get service for a faulty G500. Many of the logitech products I have owned have failed for no good reason at all, infact they failed with regards to keys that I used the least on keyboards, for mice it was always the double clicking issue, and on headsets it was always a fungal growth on the earcups. In general though I wouldn't mind failing Razer products as the service partner is a good friend of mine and I get a priority over service where as with logitech(service partner: RPtech) their service centre is filled with compulsive liars, arrogant and irresponsible f***tards. Logitech is definitely reaching a scourge status and should be wiped out.

Man if you are getting fungal infections from your headset you should probably invest in some Clorox wipes or something and not go out of your way to terrorize some poor customer service folks over it.

Dam, on backorder, and 119can at ncix. Nice, but I'll let first adopters try it and report.... and my G700s worked perfect for a long time until my expensive, high end Silverstone psu blew it up.
Crap happens.....

You can add shady CS practices, lies, misinformation and theft to the list. As a regular practice nowadays they accept a warranty item, then claim "it's not a Logitech product" and send it back. The complaint section on their forums is hidden if you're not registered but there are tons of examples. They are now outsoursicng their web support and they suck so much, even Razer seems better in comparison.

My own case which is far from being over: mailed my G910 for a replacement more than 2 months ago (from Canada to the US), after months of silence and ignoring my messages on their support system, these thieves and liars are now claiming they received "a brand new G15 in a sealed box". I mean how more ridiculous could it get? But apparently they are serious. I gave them until tomorrow to escalate to their management and get me my G910 back (I don't care now if it's not repaired, I'm selling it right after that and it will be my last Logitech product ever). I'm sure they will ignore again and I'll have to contact their head-office with an official letter of complain to the CEO or something, or going public with this horror story, it's a remarkable one indeed.

For all other "potential victims" - if you think Razer's warranty is crap (which it is), it means you have not dealt with Logitech's new warranty yet. Brace yourself, they are going to screw you royally.

So much punching on Logitech... I own about 6-7 of their products. So far I had to return one mouse for inspection, but my claim was rejected. Despite that, I am pretty satisfied with their stuff. Especially their high-tier Webcams. I'd gladly give a chance to the "Master-mouse", but 103 dollars is way out of my budget for now :)

I love the irony here. Username is "LogitechFan". That's some serious brand loyalty being ruined by a bad support case.

In India though Logitechs service record has always been crappy, back in the day US service for logitech was considered to be the best. In India Logitech's service centre was outsourced to RPTech, and that service partner has been scamming customers for a long time(I have first hand experience for last 10 years). In fact they used to take replacement for high end products from Logitech and then give much cheaper product in return to customer while selling off the said high end product in market for higher profit. Many dealers have told me about this scam at the service centre off record. In Fact within the dealers network RPtech has the worst reputation and is know for shady business practices. Although sadly there are many manufacturers relying on this service partner and that makes customers easy targets for con.

Nice! It seems the US support is doing the same if not worse. Well, a lesson for me and all others -- if they ask you to mail your expensive board to some place in CA, which is ghetto-looking with barbed wire fences and stuff (thanks Google maps), it's probably going to be stolen and you're going to be scummed.
