It so happens that the scroll wheel of my five years old Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse spoiled just a few days before one of the greatest sale day, the Singles Day (11/11).
Technically, it is not spoiled, but the scroll wheel is forever in free-spinning mode, aka the clicky/ratcheting is not working when the SmartShift button is being pressed. There is an article on how to fix it, but it seems the fix is not permanent. It will come back within a month, probably due to the spring being loose due to its age. You will need to tear the mouse’s feet to access the screws every time you fix it.
I bought the Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse from Lazada 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.
After purchasing my first Logitech MX Master back in April 2017, I went ahead to buy two more Logitech MX Master mice in White and Navy when Amazon is having a sale in May 2017.
I sold the Navy and my White spoiled after nine months probably due to bad luck. My first Logitech MX Master still works perfectly in the office. Since I bought it from Amazon, there is no local warranty here in Singapore.
I am able to connect my old Magic Mouse to my iMac but when I move the mouse, the cursor still stays put. Tried changing batteries and even using a different Mac, both method didn’t work which makes me conclude that it is spoilt for good.
The SteelSeries Rival was launched last year in October and is now retailing for S$99 in Singapore. The mouse is compatible with both PC and Mac.
The Rival is a right-handed profile mouse with injected rubber grips and a rubberised, anti-sweat coating. At the bottom of the mouse, contains the Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) material feet that gives you a consistent and optimal glide across all surface types. PTFE has one of the lowest friction against any solid.
As part of the 2014 Logitech Color Collection, the Logitech Wireless Mouse M235 comes in 4 new colors, Green Envy (Green), Bubble Bath (Pink), Blue Bliss (Blue) and Daring Dive (Purple). The retail price remains the same as the regular Wireless Mouse M235, which is S$29 and it is already out in stores.
Bought the Logitech MK260 Wireless Combo (Keyboard & Mouse) from Challenger for S$39 (member’s price is S$36.90). It is one of the cheapest branded wireless keyboard and mouse combo that I can find in Challenger. The other option is Wireless Desktop 800 which is retailing for S$39 (member’s price is S$37).
Some notable features of the Logitech MK260 includes use of 128-bit AES encryption for encrypting data transfer between the keyboard and receiver, spill-resistant keyboard and battery life that can go up to 24 months for the keyboard and five months for the mouse.
