When you use a mouse all day, we advocate spending extra on the Logitech MX Master 3. It’s snug for all grips and hand sizes, although particularly for individuals with greater palms. Most notably, the MX Grasp 3 has a second scroll wheel in your thumb, plus 5 different programmable buttons which you can customize with the Logitech Choices software program. It could connect with as many as three gadgets through Bluetooth, and the usual model of the mouse comes with a wi-fi USB dongle. (The MX Grasp 3 for Mac, in distinction, doesn’t include a USB dongle.) That is the one mouse we advocate with a chargeable battery, and it could possibly final for about two months at a single cost. The MX Grasp 3 can observe on glass and mirrored surfaces, too — nevertheless it’s usually greater than twice as costly as our different picks.

The facet scroll wheel is about to horizontal scrolling, however, we’ve additionally discovered that configuring it to scroll between browser tabs is life-changing.

The MX Grasp 3’s contoured form and thumb relaxation make it simply as snug to make use of for lengthy intervals as our different picks. Our panel testers have persistently appreciated the scale, form, and cozy soft-touch coating of earlier MX Grasp fashions and the most recent model is analogous. The MX Grasp 3 is especially snug for individuals with bigger-than-average palms, nevertheless, it isn’t too giant for common palms; it measures 4.9 inches lengthy, 3.3 inches extensive, and a couple of inches tall, in distinction to the Triathlon, which is 4.5 inches lengthy, 2.9 inches extensive, and a couple of inches tall.

Along with the left- and right-click buttons, the MX Grasp 3 affords six programmable inputs, together with a second programmable scroll wheel on the facet and two buttons immediately beneath that. It’s the one mouse we’ve examined — apart from earlier variations of the MX Grasp — that has the helpful thumb scroll wheel. By default this facet scroll wheel is about to horizontal scrolling, which is nice for graphic design, video modifying, and enormous spreadsheets, however, we’ve additionally discovered that configuring it to scroll between browser tabs is life-changing. Logitech moved the thumb scroll wheel slightly larger on this iteration of the MX Grasp with a purpose to make them again and ahead buttons extra accessible. The wheel is a little more awkward to achieve on this place — we favor the MX Grasp 2S’s thumb scroll location — however, we adjusted to it after per week or so.

The MX Grasp 3’s MagSpeed scroll wheel routinely switches between ratcheted scrolling and easy scrolling relying on how briskly you scroll, a characteristic that’s helpful for studying by means of an extended doc one ratchet at a time or rapidly scrolling all the best way to the underside. (You may as well manually toggle between ratcheted and easy scrolling utilizing the remappable button beneath the scroll wheel.) The MX Grasp 3’s again and ahead buttons are differentiated and straightforward to achieve — an enormous enhancement over the awkward, diagonally stacked buttons on its predecessor. As on the Triathlon, the MX Grasp 3’s thumb-rest button is mushy and troublesome to press.

Just like the Triathlon, the MX Grasp 3 can pair with as many as three gadgets through Bluetooth, and you’ll rapidly swap between them (on this case, by urgent a button on the underside of the mouse). The usual model of the MX Grasp 3 may also join through an included 2.4 GHz wi-fi Logitech Unifying Receiver — whereas the Mac model doesn’t include a USB dongle and might join solely through Bluetooth. Watch out to not lose the dongle, as you’ve nowhere to retailer it contained in the MX Grasp 3.

The MX Grasp 3’s built-in rechargeable battery doesn’t final so long as the Triathlon’s; Logitech claims the MX Grasp 3 will last as long as 70 days between costs. The battery recharges through the included USB-C cable, and you’ll proceed to make use of the mouse whereas it’s charging. However as a result of the battery is in-built and might get replaced, you’ll have to purchase a brand new mouse sometime when that battery degrades and now not holds a cost.

The MX Grasp 3 helps Logitech Choices to remap buttons and set app-specific actions. And like our different picks, it helps Logitech Stream, which helps you to transfer your cursor and copy-and-paste between a number of computer systems on the identical community.

Not like the overwhelming majority of mice, we examined — together with the Triathlon and the M585 — the MX Grasp 3 labored nicely on each floor we tried, together with glass and mirrors, because of its Logitech Darkfield (PDF) sensor. The MX Grasp 3 has a one-year restricted {hardware} guarantee.
