The MX Master 3 is a large wireless mouse with a prominent thumb rest, so lefties are out of luck. It accommodates all three grip styles and is comfortable thanks to superb ergonomics. The thumb and palm rest areas are also slightly textured and prevent your hand from experiencing pain even if you’re constantly using the mouse throughout the workday.
Logitech has done away with the pointy left and right buttons. They’re rounder, and the transition between them is smooth instead. The main scroll wheel sits in their middle and has either ratcheted or free-spinning movement. You can change the movement type with a button or speed up scrolling in ratcheted mode to get to a relevant apart of a page or spreadsheet quicker. The horizontal scroll wheel is an unusual and welcome addition. Its use is contextual, so it might scroll between tabs in Safari and zoom in & out in iMovie without special configuration.
The MX Master 3 uses a rechargeable Li-ion battery that lasts 70 days of intense use. You replenish it through USB-C and can either wait three hours for it to finish or give it a minute-long jolt in an emergency that will still yield three hours of uptime. The mouse connects wirelessly through either Bluetooth or 2,4GHz radio to three devices you may quickly switch between with a toggle on the bottom.
Gestures and Flow can increase your productivity exponentially. The thumb rest acts as a button for gesture activation; pressing it and moving the mouse in a direction executes a command like switching to an open tab or running a new program. Flow lets you copy files from your MacBook Pro to a desktop Mac by simply moving the cursor to one end of the screen. It then shows up on the other device’s monitor and works as intended.
