    I've always thought that the mouse was one of those utilitarian technologies that couldn't be improved upon and that Logitech, being the most dominant player in this market, would not have any incentive to make a better mouse. The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S proved me wrong. From the sculpted design to the weighty feel of the mouse, and right down to the smooth rolling speed of the hyper-fast scroll wheel, it felt very refreshing as if I were holding a mouse for the first time. The mouse is well designed. It is rounded at the palm of the hand like any old mouse, but is more angular along the side edges and the front. Placement of the buttons is very natural. There is the forward/backward thumb buttons on the side, scroll left/scroll right button on the mouse wheel, and a middle gesture button directly below the wheel. All five of these buttons can be customized to your liking to control other content such as adjusting volumes, opening and closing windows, etc. The mouse is powered by a lithium ion polymer which Logitech claims can last up to 70 days on a full charge. I've only had this mouse for a day, so I can neither corroborate nor deny their claim. The amount of battery remaining is indicated by the green led lights when you switch on the mouse. 3 green lights means the battery is fully charged, 2 lights mean it still has 66% charge, 1 light is 33% charge, and a red light means it's time to charge. One of the nice things about this mouse is that you have a choice of how you want to connect it to your computer, either through the unifying receiver or via bluetooth. The mouse is feature rich. To get the most out of the mouse, you need to download the “Logitech Options” software. Once you install the software, you can customize the buttons, make adjustments to pointer speeds, define the direction of the scroll wheel, and seamlessly switch the mouse to up to three different computers with the Logitech Flow technology. The Logitech Flow is pretty awesome and this is one of the features that you're paying for in this premium mouse. This function allows you to seamlessly move the mouse from one computer to another and to copy and paste content from one computer to another with just the click of the mouse (note, you cannot drag and drop). You need to download and install the Logitech Flow software on the two (or three) computers you plan to use with this mouse and follow the on-screen menu that will lead you through the set up process. Once set up is completed, you will be amazed at how easily it is to cut/copy/paste content from one computer to another with the mouse. To get the mouse from one computer screen to the next, you simply move the mouse cursor to the edge of your first computer screen ,and the mouse cursor magically appears on your other computer screen and you could then control the other computer and paste or copy the file onto the second computer. It's a pretty cool feature that Logitech provides to give an option on how to transfer files between two computers. However, both computers need to be on the same network for the Logitech Flow to work. Another cool feature that you're getting with the MX Anywhere 2S is the hyper-fast scrolling function. With a simple press of the wheel, the scroll wheel transforms from a traditional wheel that will click and scroll a few lines at a time to a hyper scroll wheel allowing you to quickly scroll up and down long documents or web pages with a low friction spinning wheel. Other than those two main standout features (1. Logitech Flow and 2. Hyper-fast Scrolling), you pretty much have an advanced functioning mouse with customizable buttons. You also get Logitech's Darkfield high precision tracking sensor which will track on any surface including glass which is useful if you find yourself in situations where you're in need of using the mouse in a less than ideal surface. In summary, Logitech's MX Anywhere 2S is a great choice for anyone seeking a sleek wireless, high performance mouse with bluetooth connectivity needing to transfer files between computers or needing to control up to three computers with a single mouse. There isn't anything negative I can think of about this mouse. You really cannot go wrong. The deciding factor is whether or not you will be needing to use the Logitech Flow or the hyper scrolling features. If you need them, then this mouse should be considered; if not, then Logitech has more basic mice offerings to select from at a lower price point.

    Among the best portable mouse

    Often switch between Mac and Windows laptops, and was looking for a portable, Bluetooth mouse with rechargeable mouse. Then this came along, and it's almost perfect for what I needed, except… This mouse utilizes a newer version of Bluetooth called 'Bluetooth LE' (Also called Bluetooth Smart or simple BLE), which utilizes very little power on itself so batteries last a lot longer, and here's the problem: The Mac I'm using is a mid-2012 that does support Bluetooth 4.0 but for some reason cannot pair with this mouse. For now I'm using the USB adapter that comes with it (USB Unifying Receiver), which, when connected makes the computer see the mouse and similarly connected keyboard like a wired USB device. This way worked perfectly and right away. Another computer I use is a new Windows 10 laptop, which connected right away with Bluetooth, and has no issues, so beware if you plan on using Bluetooth and have a slightly older laptop. The mouse itself works great. Works on clear glass or any other surface. Clicking feels right. Has side buttons and side scrolling on the wheel. What's different is that clicking on the wheel sets it in either step click or free scrolling. There is no middle button when clicking on the wheel; Instead the middle button is behind the wheel and a bit hard to reach (or until I get used to it). The wheel is made of metal with a rubberized center and has a certain quality feeling to it. The mouse is light but has good weight on the back of it, so it feels solid when used. The mouse can connect to three computers simultaneously (when using the Logitech Options driver) or has a button on the back that pressing it switches between the three devices, be either Bluetooth LE or the USB receiver(s). The reconnection on either BLE or USB when switching or powering on is almost instant. Rarely seen a Bluetooth device reconnect so quickly. Mouse can be use while recharging (USB Cable included) and charged completely in about 1 hour. When turning it on, a single light behind the scroll wheel indicates the level of charge (which goes dark after a few seconds). Software driver: The "Logitech Options" software is optional but it offers a very neat trick: It works with Logitech keyboards and/or mouse that supports what they call 'flow': All the computers that use the same mouse and/or keyboard, when used at the same time communicate with each other through this software (and Wi-Fi or Ethernet), which makes the mouse switch computers when crossing a (defined) corner on the screen, literally making them work like a single computer (The connection indicator on the mouse automatically changes to the active computer). Also the clipboard can be set to be shared between them, regardless of running either macOS or Windows. The clipboard is shared over Wi-Fi, and copying either images or text works fine.

    Bad luck with higher end mice from Logitech

    This is my second higher end mouse from Logitech. The first one was a VX Nano Cordless Laser mouse, which was great while it lasted, but then died after about 6 months. So, after many years of just using cheaper Logitech mice, which have worked fine, I decided to try another higher end laser mouse, the MX Anywhere 2S. I loved how it could track on glass and other smooth surfaces that other mice could not track on. I also loved that it has no batteries to replace, you just connect it to a micro usb cable and recharge it. But then after about 5 months of use, the mouse scrolling direction went haywire, scrolling down would cause the pointer to go up and scrolling up would cause the pointer to go down. I tried using the Logitech options software to change the scroll wheel direction, which works ok for only minutes, but then up is down and down is up again. I also tried disabling the smooth scrolling as suggested by some of the troubleshooting info I found online, and that did not work either. I got so frustrated with it that I just put it in a spare briefcase and bought a Logitech M720, which has been great. Recently I found my Mx Anywhere 2S in my spare briefcase and decided to see if I could find my receipt for it. Turns out I had purchased it online at Best Buy. So, I went to the Logitech support website, registered my MX Anywhere 2S, uploaded my Best Buy online receipt, and contacted Logitech for a warranty claim. Initially when I contacted them 2 weeks ago, I was told that my replacement had been "processed". Then, I received an email from Logitech today saying that "The replacement request was rejected due to incomplete information and incomplete troubleshooting steps" and that my case was still open. I called today and did further trouble shooting with Logitech support and was then asked for my receipt (which I had already uploaded to my Logitech support account when I registered the mouse). When I told the Logitech representative that I had already uploaded my receipt, he questioned the validity of my Best Buy online receipt. He said he could not see on the receipt where it said Best Buy and I told him to look at the top left where it says, "Best Buy Order Details" and to the top right where you can see the Best Buy web address. He would not accept the validity of that receipt. I told him that when I went into my Best Buy online account and looked up my purchase, that is the only receipt that I can print. He said he would have to call Best Buy to verify my receipt. So, after putting me on hold several times, he comes back and asks me to verify my shipping address so he can send me a replacement. When asked about his receipt verification with Best Buy, he said he tried several calls that were disconnected when he attempted telephone verification with Best Buy. So finally, after 45 minutes on the phone, he says he got the replacement "approved by the back office". So now I am supposed to get a replacement within a couple of weeks. I am hoping my second time around with the MX Anywhere 2S is better than the first.

    I'm a fan of Logitech mouses and this MX Anywhere 2S doesn't disappoint! I like how it's compact, doesn't take up much space, fits inside the palm of your hand naturally and comfortably, and is very light. It is also more low-profile than my main gaming mouse - the Logitech MX1000 laser - which seems to fit me better ergonomically. Setting up the mouse was a pleasant surprise because it was just so easy. I first set up the mouse to my desktop computer by inserting the adapter into a USB slot. Once Windows 10 automatically finished installing the driver, the mouse was immediately ready to go. I then connected the mouse to my laptop next and the process was equally simple and easy. I flipped the mouse around and pressed the button on the bottom of the mouse. The LED light lit up underneath the "2." I then opened up the "Bluetooth & other devices" setting page in Windows 10 and selected the MX Anywhere 2S. The mouse began working immediately. The sensitivity, speed, and accuracy of the mouse is top-notch. With its 4000-dpi spec, it's more accurate and precise than my old MX1000 laser mouse. And I love how it works so well on different surfaces. Having said all this, however, there is one scenario where I wouldn't use this mouse for - PC gaming. And that's because the mouse only has 7 buttons. For the types of games I place, I require more buttons. But for everything else, I like the MX Anywhere 2S better than my Logitech MX1000 laser. I don't normally pack a mouse with my laptop when I go traveling but this mouse is so good, I'm going to be taking this with me. All in all, this is an excellent mouse and I highly recommend it.

    A Great Improvement On an Already Great Mouse

    When I purchased my original Logitech Anywhere MX, I was blown away. It was just the right size, and I liked the functionality of the buttons and how the mouse could be used on just about any surface. Thus I was very excited to discover what advances a few years would bring to this mouse, and I was not disappointed. Logitech has done a great job of improving this already great mouse. If you download the Logitech Options program at http://support.logitech.com/en_us/software/options, you can program the functions of the buttons to meet your individual needs. If you install this program on other computers, regardless whether they operate on Windows or Mac, you can use Logitech Flow to move the mouse from one monitor to another for up to three devices. I could copy a file from one device and move it to another. I found this feature to be mind blowing! I was hoping I could use this option on my phone, but there is no Logitech Flow or Options app in the Play Store. As for the claim that this mouse is more accurate on more surfaces than it predecessors, I never had a problem using the original Anywhere MX mouse on multiple surfaces, nor did I experience any problems with MX Anywhere 2S. I did noticed the unifying receiver has shrunk to half its size (see photo), and it is nice to know that you can just use Bluetooth instead. I am most happy with the rechargeable internal battery, which is advertised to last up to 70 days, but I have not owned this mouse long enough to test that claim. I would recommend this mouse to anyone. It works very well, is not bulky, can be configured to suit any need, can be used to share files for up to three computers, can connect to just about any device via Bluetooth (even a phone), has a long-life rechargeable battery, and can be used anywhere. The only things that could be improved is adding a Logitech Flow/Option app, making the power switch on the bottom a little easier to toggle, having a place to store the unifying receiver on the mouse, and including a nice zip-up case, as the previous version did (see photo).

    I didn't expect to fall in love with a mouse. But then I met the MX Anywhere 2S Wireless Laser Mouse by Logitech and was smitten. Sure, there are some nits to pick. For one, only the left side has extra control buttons. That's great for those of us who are right-handed, but not as nice for the lefties. Second, it's maybe 3/4 of the size of a traditional desktop mouse; I was actually hoping for closer to 2/3. Third, the included documentation is pretty skimpy and hard for my aging eyes to read. Lastly (and this is about as picky as you can get), the button to switch between different devices is on the bottom, so you have to pick up the mouse to change devices. Ok, we got that out of the way. Now, let's look at the positives. First, this mouse works on any surface. I was using it last night on a clear glass desktop. No problems at all. I was really amazed. Second, the fast-scroll option is cool. You press down the scroll wheel and it locks into another hyper-scroll mode. Press it again, and it's back to normal mode. Third, the software allows you to customize the buttons. In this way, at least the primary controls are ambidextrous. You can also customize swipe controls, which is just pretty neat with a mouse. You activate your swipe controls with the special gesture button on the mouse, just below the wheel. Fourth, battery life is very impressive. A charge supposedly last two months or more. It charges quickly with a micro-USB cable. Fifth, while it may be bigger than I'm used to for a travel mouse, it is very comfortable and easier to use than the other mouse I'd been using for my Surface Pro 4. Last, but certainly not least, you can use the MX 2S concurrently on up three computers as long as they're on the same network and have the free Logitech Flow software installed. Sure, you have to pick it up at first to sync it to the different devices, but after that, you can just go back and forth from one screen to another as if you were using a multiple monitor setup. On top of that, you can copy anything from one computer to another. Mind blown. I love this mouse. It's the kind of forward-looking accessory that makes the laptop or tablet experience that much better. Well done, Logitech!

    Seeing as I've been a Logitech user for several years now, I'll try not to be too biased in this review so here goes. First off, as far as peripherals go, I've used numerous Logitech devices over the years for my desktops, Mac, and work/Windows laptops. Almost every single one of them performed great and were only replaced due to accidents or upgrading devices. This mouse is pretty much perfect for me as my on-the-go mouse for either my work or personal laptop. I still have the previous version of this mouse for my work laptop and it's still working great. As with most Logitech devices, the ergonomics of this mouse is pretty spot on. This one, compared to my other mouse, is considerably lower in profile. For me, this might take a little time getting used to but nothing big. It's standard in terms of buttons on this mouse. There aren't any 4th/5th buttons in weird locations on the mouse like with some other ones I've seen. Just left/right buttons, scroll and two thumb buttons. The placement of these buttons is a bit different from my previous mouse so, again, it'll take a bit getting used to but whatev. The buttons are pretty crisp and the Anywhere tracking on this mouse works as intended on pretty much any surface. The receiver for this mouse seems to be a smidge smaller than my other one, not that I'm complaining. Very low profile so it'll be sure to not get snagged on anything in my backpack. Charging cable is included and THANK YOU LOGITECH for putting the charging port in a competent place...IN FRONT where you can charge the mouse and still use it. Unfortunately I don't have any other peripherals to utilize the Unifying receiver feature so I can't really comment on that. Overall, a fantastic mouse that's low profile, ergonomic and reasonably priced.

    Fine mouse but advanced features hard to use

    The main reason that I wanted to try out the MX Anywhere 2S mouse was for its Darkfield high-precision tracking, which means that the mouse is supposed to work at 4,000 DPI on any surface, even glass. I found that the mouse does indeed track beautifully on any surface—my couch arm, my knee, and even glass. And not just glass with a solid surface directly underneath, but even a pane of glass suspended in the air several feet off the floor. This is the best-tracking mouse I have ever used. One small drawback, which I was aware of before I got the mouse, was that you cannot store the USB receiver inside of it, like you can with a number of Logitech mice, including the M525 that I have been using. Without such storage, you have to either leaver the receiver in your laptop, where it might be damaged when moving the laptop (this happened to me before), or finding some other place to store the receiver and hope that it does not get lost. I had a pleasant surprise on reading the features of the MX Anywhere 25 that reduced some of my concern about losing or damaging the receiver. It turns out that you have a choice of connecting either with the USB receiver or through Bluetooth. It is nice to have that choice. I found that the mouse worked well either way, and that it was easy to pair the mouse with the Logitech Options software (which must be downloaded from Logitech). I had not used the Logitech Options software before, and found that it was a great way to choose the options for the left/right click, two buttons on the left side of the mouse, the scroll wheel (which also clicks left and right), and a square button on top called the gesture button. The options are basically the same as Logitech software from 20 years ago, but the graphic user interface is much easier to use than navigating through text-based menus. I had not used a gesture button before. The way it works is that you hold it down while moving the mouse forward, backward, left, or right. The default gestures are things like bringing up the Windows menu or task manager or going to the desktop, and the gesture button did work for issuing the commands. I don’t know if I would ever use it, though, as pointing and clicking on the Windows menu, for example, seems just as easy to me. I wish I could assign the key to the gesture button—that could really be useful for things like opening a link in a new tab or window. Alas, that assignment is not possible. A feature I found somewhat odd is that the mouse uses a rechargeable battery. The documentation says that plugging in the mouse to your computer with the provided USB cable for 4 minutes will charge the mouse for one day, and a full charge will last for 70 days. I don’t see the advantage—the two AA batteries in my M525 are supposed to be sufficient for three years’ use. Seems a little gimmicky to me. The feature I was most curious to try was the ability to use the mouse simultaneously with two computers, enabling one to copy text or files from one computer and pasting them to the other. This would be the coolest mouse feature ever, if I could get it to work. But here is what happened. First, it seemed that I would have to use Bluetooth connections for both computers, since you can use either the USB receiver or Bluetooth, and there is only one receiver. From the Logitech Options software (which must be run on bother computers for the dual-control to work) documentation, it looked like the mouse should function just like it does on a dual monitor set-up. That is, moving off the edge of one screen will make the cursor appear on the next screen. The trouble was, as soon as I moved off one screen, the mouse would not work on the other computer until I changed Bluetooth channels by pushing a button on the bottom of the mouse. This made moving back and forth extremely awkward and time-consuming. I got this feature to work, but it seems too cludgy to be useful. Maybe there’s a better way to do this, but if there is the documentation does not explain it well. So, aside from the disappointment of not getting the coolest feature to work well, I was very happy with the performance of the mouse, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who understands its capabilities and limitations.

    I got the MX Anywhere 2S mouse as a replacement for a trackball that I was tired of using. I mostly just wanted a wireless mouse, but the advanced tracking claims on this on grabbed my attention, and I was not disappointed. First, though, let me mention two items that were a minor concern for me. The size is a bit small for anyone with larger than average hands, but that’s the case with many things if you have large hands. The second thing is the lack of any instructions. Initial setup and pairing was super simple, but some of the more advanced features seem to warrant some sort of pamphlet explaining what they do and how to provision them. The website was quite a bit of help, but it’s nice to have a hard copy you can refer back to when you need a refresher and don’t feel like going online to look it up. What I truly enjoy is the laser and range on this mouse. I can have my laptop set up on the coffee table while I sit a few feet away on the couch, and the pointer responds as crisply as if it were wired. It doesn’t matter if I’m moving it along a couch cushion, my jeans, my leg, or even my dog’s belly (only once and she thought it was tummy rubs, so don’t go for the torches and pitchforks), it tracks as smoothly as if it were on a mousepad. I already mentioned how effortless the initial pairing is, but I want to reiterate that it truly is “plug and play.” I also enjoyed the ability to copy and paste across multiple computers. This feature does require both computers to be on the same wifi network, and that Logitech’s Options software be installed. The mouse the pairs with each device via the USB dongle, or Bluetooth. Another thing worth mention is that the control wheel switches back and forth from free-spinning to having reference clicks, which is nice if you deal with sites or documents that require you to scroll endlessly to reach the bottom. I’m quite pleased with this mouse and have already recommended it to friends.

    Solid, smooth multitasking mouse!

    As can be seen via a nearby label, I was given a free device in exchange for an unbiased review. For general purpose computing (unless you need a specialized input device for a niche application), this is the mouse you've been waiting for. Even if you forget the extra buttons that are a part of the mouse, two things immediately come to mind when handling the device: smooth and solid -- and this from a wireless device! This mouse is most certainly smooth, in that no matter what surface it's laid upon, connectivity and on-screen movement don't miss a bit. I've dealt with previous mice that have issues "keeping up" with my screen movements or left-clicking-and-highlighting; this device has absolutely no issues here. Exceptional movement across the screen, stopping and clicking precisely where desired. The device is also solid -- to me, it seems somewhat heavier (enough to notice a difference) than other mice. To me, that's what helps with the smoothness -- it sits squarely wherever it's located, and there are no issues with steadiness. For connectivity, the device comes with both a USB-based receiver (very small dongle) as well as integrated Bluetooth connectivity. Because I profusely use my USB ports, I try to keep anything new from hogging yet another port to a minimum, and this mouse deals with Bluetooth in spades. On the bottom-rear of the mouse, there is a button that corresponds to three fanned-out LED lights. This intentionally represents up to three machines to which you can pair the mouse. All it takes is to press the button to enable a given light, press and hold for about 3 seconds (to put in pairing mode), make sure the machine sees the mouse, and pair -- that simple. I've done this on my work PC (a Windows 10-based unit) as well as my mid-2012 non-Retina MacBook Pro. In both cases, the mouse was easily paired. The only "drawback" (if you can call it that) is that you have to press the button to correspond to which light represents which machine. However, once selected, it simply works -- in real time. While there is a "Flow" function that's said to be included with the mouse (allowing you to cut-and-paste between machines, even between Windows and macOS), I wasn't interested in loading further software on either my work laptop nor my MacBook Pro, so that went untested. Regardless, I actually needed a new mouse for work, and this unit came just in time. So, for general, all-purpose mousing activities, this unit has become my favorite go-to input device. It comes with a lithium ion rechargeable battery which Logitech claims can provide 70 days' worth of charge (I've only just gotten the mouse, so I can't currently speak to that), so at least there's not AA or AAA batteries to always have to change out. If you need a good mouse that works cross-platform, this is it! And Bluetooth connectivity is excellent.

    Portable, accurate, with useful bonus features

    I've been using the MX Anywhere 2S for a few days now, and have been very happy with it. Size/Form: I travel frequently with two different laptop computers (work and personal), and I really like how portable this mouse is. It's a bit lighter and smaller than I'd prefer on a permanent desktop, but for on-the-go use, it's a great size, and not too small to use comfortably. The on-off switch on the bottom is also great for preserving battery life when it's stowed in a laptop bag. Connectivity: Both of my computers have Bluetooth, so I connected that way. Pairing was quick and easy, and I used the selector button on the bottom to switch between computers. For computers without Bluetooth, there's a receiver in the box that plugs into a USB port and adds wireless connectivity for this mouse and other Logitech accessories. Functionality: I was able to connect and use basic mouse functions (pointer, left button, right button, scroll) on my Windows computer and my Chromebook, all with no software installation or configuration necessary. Just pair and go. The extra buttons (two on the side, one beneath the scroll wheel, and two activated by pushing the scroll wheel to one side or the other) can be customized, but I was only able to find the software to do so for Windows and Mac, not Chromebook. The default actions are very intuitive, though. The scroll wheel has a very useful function -- the mechanical "click" that limits scrolling to several lines at a time can be disengaged by pressing down on the wheel. Once that's done, you can spin the wheel freely, scrolling large amounts of long pages or documents at a time. When you're ready to return to the more traditional scrolling method, just press down again and the mechanical clicks are re-engaged. Mouse tracking was very accurate on a variety of surfaces. I haven't tried the Flow software (which allows seamless use across multiple computers) because only one of my machines is compatible with the software. Potential drawbacks: Some may not like how light the mouse is, but since I value portability, I found it very useful. The shape is comfortable, but specific to right-hand use. I can't imagine using it lefty.

    I love this mouse. So much. Strictly on the basis of physical design and performance. It feels wonderful. The weight is perfect, the construction is high quality--the materials are excellent, aren't slippery or sweaty, have good grip without being sticky. I love it. The buttons are well-placed and have good feedback. Ergonomically, this is one of the best-feeling classic mice I've ever used. It's the perfect size for my petite lady hands and does not aggravate my carpal tunnel... in fact, my hand has been feeling pretty darn good since I started using it. The scroll wheel is a little more loose than I'm used to... but I've started to appreciate the light touch. I want to get another one for work! And I usually don't spent more than twenty bucks on a mouse. Seriously, though... this one is so worth it. I love it. On the software front, I was really excited to try out the Flow feature, which is advertised to basically let you seamlessly use the mouse between two computers, even letting you copy/paste files between the two machines using the mouse. The front-load to use this feature is a bit of a hassle, requiring you to download, install and enable the Logitech "Options" software on both machines you plan to use it on (this is not simple plug-and-play). But I did it with two Windows 10 computers and at first, I was psyched--it totally worked! The mouse cursor moved beautifully between the two computers as if they were the same desktop and I was successfully able to copy/paste files between the two computers as I was just moving a file from one directory to another on the same machine. It was awesome. But then I shut one of the laptops and it went to sleep... and when I woke it back up again, I could not get the two computers to connect again in the Flow feature. Ah, well. I guess there are still some bugs in the software. It was super cool when it worked--and with updates, I'm betting it will start to work more reliably again in the future... but right now, it seems to be a little hit or miss. But... that's not why I use a mouse. I want the hardware to be awesome. And it is. This is a great mouse. And, as lame as it sounds... yes. I am excited about this mouse. I really, really like it and it's a pleasure to use. Yup... just decided. I'm getting another one for work...

    A Good Logitech Mouse But Not A Great Mouse

    This Logitech MX Anywhere 2S Wireless Laser Mouse is more interesting conceptually than functionally. Mostly it just feels like any other Logitech mouse. I like that it is rechargeable and I love the tracking (it really does track well even on clear plastic and glass surfaces). I also like being able to change from click-scroll to smooth-scroll - and the scrolling can be set to lightning speeds. It fits comfortably in the hand but side buttons make this mouse useful only for right-handed people. The mouse works great with my Windows desktop and laptop, but I found it to be clunky, at best, with my Mac - sometimes even short pauses in mouse activity seemed to create a momentary disconnect between the mouse and the Mac that I have never experienced with my Apple Magic Mouse 2. The MX can be paired with three separate computers - you change the computer assignment by way of a button on the bottom of the mouse - so that mousing with one computer won’t continue to mouse on the other computers if they are nearby. That feature can be used to transfer files from one computer to another by way of your shared internet connection which sounds incredible but is not that much less work than emailing a file to yourself. The MX isn’t a bad mouse, it’s just not a significantly greater mouse than other Logitech mice. I don’t like how it works with my Mac and, at the end of the day, I guess I’m just a kinda guy who prefers to have separate mice for each computer.

    Simple Review: It's compact enough and works on everything. How could you go wrong here. Extended Review: Starting off the with the unboxing experience pretty straight forward cardboard, plastic and the smaller charging cables you tend not to use. Once you get past that you look at the unit itself and first thing I noticed was the dongle itself. The reason I focused on this first is I tend to not use a dongle mouse on the go because I have a fear of breaking it off for some reason or another. This one though is so small it feel like it's part of the computer, which for someone like me it's a perfect fit. The big test I gave this mouse was a little computer game I play that makes me click on anything + everything like crazy! This mouse kept up, never felt it lagging behind and just like it advertises it works on every surface I tried. especially glass....Felt like I had to test it with how many times it said INCLUDING GLASS lol. The only thing that I didn't get working, keep in mind I didn't try too hard, was the Logitech Options flow thing. I give points to Logitech for being creative and pushing the boundaries on what I consider a normal mouse to do. The process itself didn't work on the first or second try so maybe a little better to do guide with that would have been warranted. Otherwise this unit is amazing and is now my daily driver as I have to travel a lot. Easy recommendation for the man/woman on the go. Thanks for reading my review.

    Great Mouse

    This is a really good mouse. I use it at home and at work. I haven't loaded the Logitech Options software yet because it does everything I need it to without it on two Windows 10 devices. I like the Easy-Switch button to quickly switch between my work and home laptops. I didn't want to use the receiver, so the mouse is connected to both laptops using Bluetooth. The size of the mouse is good. It is a little smaller than a standard mouse, while not feeling like a tiny portable mouse. The mouse performance is good. I have not had any issues using it on a couch or shiny place mat. The left and right scroll using the mouse wheel is a nice touch. I have had to get used to using the middle button instead of clicking with the mouse wheel, but that will come over time. Speaking of the mouse wheel, it took me a while to figure out how that works. It has a hypterfast scroll feature, where the mouse wheel will spin to get you down the pager quicker. I just thought the scrolling was vague. Now that I know to click with the mouse wheel to switch between regular scrolling and hyperscroll, I am very happy with the scrolling. I haven't had to charge it in the two weeks I have used it at work. It is supposed to last 70 days using it for 8 hours a day. I don't expect 70 full days, I would be happy only having to charge it once a month. This is a really nice wireless mouse. I would recommend it.

    I use an Apple Retina iMac and I had an earlier version of this mouse. The mouse, worked well, but getting the iMac to recognize the mouse was a pain, especially when ever the OS was updated. Logitech has solved this issue. I was able to pair the mouse with the iMac with no problems at all and the mouse was fully functional. There are directions on a sticker on the bottom of the mouse that walks you through the entire process and it couldn't have been any easier. The mouse is able to control content on up to three different computers. I used my wife's Dell Laptop too and I was able to copy and paste between the two computers. The mouse is very accurate and smooth, there is no lag or tank when moving the mouse around. The wheel hub on top of the mouse works well and is also smooth when scrolling through long web pages, word docs and especially excel files. You also have the choice of pairing the mouse either via bluetooth or the usb receiver. Make sure you download the software for this device, it allows you to customize your mouse to fit your needs. There are too many customizations that you can make, to list, but you can customize what you want the right/left buttons and the forward and back side buttons do. The only thing I wish logitech did was use a USB C to charge the mouse in stead of a micro usb charger. The mouse is compact, but not too small for my hands (I can palm a basketball). It is designed to comfortably fit in most people's hand. If you need a new mouse and you want one that you can customize, this is the mouse for you.

    i enjoy this mouse and was surprised. for the price I already new it was probably something that was going to be a 30 or so dollar mouse. and just paying more because it has Bluetooth, and wireless and built in battery. so I was surprised to find out it had a lot of customizations that could be done. one that is nice is a button that you hold down just under scroll wheel and you can then move the mouse left, right, up or down and set it to do something. and a couple other buttons to which you can also customize. I have not fully used everything yet so not sure if there is a program that allows to customize the dpi to specific numbers. the Logitech program is said to download seems to just use a slider and not say what the dpi is. you can set it up with 3 devices at once. can be nice if you use a desktop and then go to a laptop. you don't have to disable the BT on the desktop and re pair. it moves smoothly on 3 different mouse pads that I own. I have a couple cloth style pads and then a harder type pad. a few cons that I have. the charging cable is not long but not short either. its great if you have a laptop and the usb is on the side you use the mouse or back. otherwise you would not be able to use while charging. being it is supposed to be a travel mouse, I would have expected to either have a case for it to put everything in, or a slot in the mouse to store the receiver. and profiles for the mouse per computer. like 3 different profiles to choose from so if I am in a game I can switch to a profile, or if wife is using it etc. overall though, for the price I think its worth it if you are looking for a good wireless mouse.

    Wonderful Multifunction Mouse that tracks Anywhere

    I bought this most for use with my laptop computer after losing this product's step-up, the MX Master 2S and honestly speaking, I can say I love this mouse even more than the one I had before! This mouse is small (fits comfortably in the palm of my hand) and portable and can connect to a multitude of devices at the same time. I usually have it connected to my laptop via Bluetooth and use the receiver it comes with plugged into my desktop. It can be connected to three different devices by using the sync button on the bottom of the mouse. It can also be used on two PCs or Macs (or combination thereof) simultaneously using Logitech Flow which is included in the Logitech Options software (downloadable off of Logitech's website) provided the two devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The Logitech Options software is absolutely wonderful as it allows you to turn all of your mouse buttons into hotkeys for different PC functions. Battery life is incredible, I haven't had to charge this mouse once since I first charged it after I bought it and it's seen over 4 months of on and off daily use! And it tracks on any surface I put it on! Glass, fabric, wood, you name it; this mouse stays on track and never lags. I could go on and on about this mouse and still not feel like I'm doing it justice. The extra price for a pointing device is well worth the multifunctionality, the portability and the reliability for me. If these are things you value too, I'd highly recommend this mouse.

    You just can't beat Logitech mice

    This is a well made mouse with lots of features. I've used many Logitech mice in the past and they are by far my favorite. This one is on the small side so it goes great with a laptop. The USB transmitter is the smallest I've ever seen, so it's perfect to leave installed in your portable computer. You don't have to remove it because you're worried about it breaking off. Even though it's not a big mouse, it has good weight to it. It doesn't feel light and cheap. The buttons, as always, have a great feel and a solid click. The mouse wheel is weighted and can be in either one of two different modes. You can have it click when you roll it like most mice do, or you can set it in free wheel mode which removes the click indents and allows you to spin it as fast as you can. This is great for surfing and will get you to the top or bottom of a web page in about half a second. You can also scroll left and right by pushing the wheel in either of those directions. There's also two buttons by your thumb that are great for going to the last or next web page. There's also a center button. All the buttons can be user configured and the downloaded Logitech app is easy and intuitive to use. This mouse is rechargeable and comes with a USB charging cable so you get everything you need. Very precision mousing without any slop, no matter what surface you're on. I do a lot of graphics development, and spend hours on my machine. This mouse feels comfortable the entire time and does a good job of becoming an extension of your hand, like it should. A great mouse for casual to professional users.

    Mouse is good. "Flow" software is not.

    This is the first mouse that I've had with a smooth scrolling wheel (i.e. no notched scrolling, but free-wheel spinning). This took me a little while to get used to, but I find it quite nice now that I have the settings arranged to my preferences. The mouse moves very smoothly across any surface that I've used it on. The buttons click nicely, and I like having dedicated buttons for moving forward and back in web browsing. All in all, this is a somewhat nicer mouse than their standard M325. I don't game, so I can't say if it is worth the added $40. The Flow software that they tout as being able to allow you to use the mouse with multiple machines is really just a cheap knock-off of Microsoft software called "Mouse without Borders." It is available for free. With Flow, you can move the mouse between the computers, but not much more. There is also about a 2-second delay every time you move from one screen to another. Another problem is that only the mouse moves, not the keyboard functionality, so you have to have 2 keyboards on your desk. With Mouse without Borders, the movement is instantaneous and it allows you to use the same keyboard with both computers. This is far more useful than Flow. I don't know if Mouse without Borders is available for use on a Mac, but I assume not. If you want to use this mouse with both a PC and a Mac, I guess Flow is an option, if a terrifically imperfect one. In total, I'd say don't bother with Flow, and the mouse is likely not worth the massive price-jump over a basic mouse with a tilting scroll-wheel.
