Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse

This is my third Logitech MX Master mouse. I have the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse [1], Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse [2], and now the Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse [3].

I bought the Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse from Lazada [4] during its Online Tech Show. The recommended retail price of the mouse is S$169. After the 8% discount by Logitech and deducting Lazada’s S$12 voucher, HSBC S$20 voucher, I ended up paying just S$123.48. Shipping is free as I shipped it to a Ninja Point [5].

The MX Master 3 uses USB-C to charge rather than Micro USB (Finally!). But I have no idea why Logitech still chooses to use a USB-A receiver instead of a USB-C one.

Instead of three indicator lights to indicate the battery level on the MX Master 2S, the MX Master 3 only has one, but it uses the usual red, yellow, and green to tell the battery level.

Other than that, the rest of the MX Master 3 specifications are almost the same as MX Master 2S.

There is a more noticeable design change between the MX Master 3 and MX Master 2S rather than between MX Master 2S and MX Master.

The back of both MX Master 3 and MX Master 2S is similar.

There are fewer gutters (gaps) on the MX Master 3 than the MX Master 2S, and this means dust and dirt are less lightly to be trapped there.

The scroll wheel and thumb wheel is now in silver. The patterns around the thumb area are now in strips rather than polygons.

In terms of using the mouse, I felt that the MX Master 3 is more comfortable. Especially at the back of the mouse where you rest your palm. This might be due to the higher arc as compared to the MX Master 2S.

Using the scroll wheel and thumb wheel felt much smoother on the MX Master 3, especially the thumb wheel.

If you are looking for a non-gaming mouse, I would only recommend one to you and that is the Logitech MX Master 3. Trust me on this.
