I’ve used the Logitech MX Master 3 as my main productiveness mouse because it got here out in 2019. I’ve examined dozens of mice since, however none juggled a good variety of programmable buttons, superior wi-fi capabilities, multi-device management, and long-term consolation as admirably because the MX Grasp 3. In the present day, Logitech launched a revamped model, the MX Master 3S.

It follows in Grasp 3’s footsteps of wi-fi mouse excellence however does not introduce sufficient enhancements to warrant ditching my MX Grasp 3 and opening my pockets once more.

As you might need guessed by the gentle moniker modification, the 3S is barely totally different from the three. The brand new mouse has quieter left- and right-click buttons, and it helps greater sensitivity, so your cursor can transfer farther with much less bodily mouse motion—and that is it.

Whereas the tech fanatic in me would like to see innovation within the design and have set, the MX Grasp 3S did not want many modifications from the predecessor to be the final word energy mouse. Now, it is only a bit extra future-proofed for an 8K or second 4K monitor.

Quieter clicks

The distinction was obvious instantly when Logitech adopted the MX Master 2S with the MX Grasp 3. However the mildly upgraded 3S seems equivalent to the three, save for a white coloration possibility, however as soon as I began clicking, the disparity was clear.

Clicking the 3S creates a gentle thud, adopted by a quieter noise because the button travels again up. These sounds are purportedly 90 % softer than the clicks heard when urgent the three’s left- or right-click buttons down and after they reset. A Logitech rep informed me the corporate could not use these quieter buttons earlier than as a result of they weren’t confirmed to final for 10 million clicks.

The MX Grasp 3’s audible clicks did not trouble me earlier than. I felt like they emphasised my clicks, making them really feel sharp and exact however barely extra exhausting to press than the identical buttons on different mice, such because the gaming-geared wi-fi Alienware AW720M.

Nonetheless, the 3S’s main click on buttons do not feel mushier or flatter than the three’s. They nonetheless have a discernible quantity of journey to them, so I can inform once I’ve bottomed out, and so they return quickly. The mouse nonetheless has zippy clicks with out the noise to show it.

Further delicate for 4K and past

From 4K to 8K screens and multi-monitor setups, we regularly push ourselves to do extra, multi-task, and regulate initiatives throughout many pixels. With an optical sensor supporting a bigger sensitivity vary than earlier than, the MX Grasp 3S makes it so you do not have to maneuver your arm as a lot to maneuver your mouse throughout your twin 4K setup… you simply need to be okay with a extra delicate mouse.
