Ever since it was first mass-produced for home computers back in 1984 (Yep, almost 40 years ago) the Mackintosh 128K came with one included although the first mouse was created by Douglas Engelbart in 1964. Pub quiz question answer there for you, you’re welcome!) the humble mouse has had many, many iterations and designs, each generation seeming to improve on the last. For its part in mouse history, the MX Master 3S has focussed mainly on silent and efficient running alongside a design of shape relatively common for maximum comfort.
The efforts Logitech have gone to in order to reduce the noise on this mouse has paid off. Introducing something they refer to as ‘Quiet Clicks’, they have reduced the noise of the mouse-click by 90% in comparison to their older models and is a godsend for those like me who get annoyed and irritated at repetitive mouse-clicking noises, especially when not doing the clicking yourself… They have paid just as much attention to the scroll wheel which whizzes along at a nice 1000 lines a second for when you really need to get to a certain point on the page! It’s an electromagnetic wheel which, it would seem, reduces the noise significantly. Makes sense I guess.
At the business end of this mouse, the sensor is capable of reading 8000 DPI (Dots Per Inch) which gives it a high-end gaming performance and can even work when used on glass making any surface viable. Thankfully, you can adjust the DPI if you wish – that much sensitivity can be a hindrance for certain tasks I find. Finally, the battery life is fantastic: up to 70 days of use fully charged and for just 1 minute of recharge time, you’ll get 3 hours of use.. RRP £119.99
