While it doesn't have lots of glowing lights or any other fancy features on the outside, the MX Master will stand out on your desk thanks to its "alien spaceship-like aesthetic" that Mashable liked for its sculpted feel but not so much for the gold accents. TrustedReviews finds the mouse striking thanks to its "funky-looking blend of smooth and gently textured surfaces" aimed at "maximizing comfort." However, that hand-friendly feel comes with one caveat: the MX Master is strictly a right-handed mouse, with Gizmodo noting that the "ergonomics are all way off (and awkward) if you use it with your left." But for righties, it's utterly "superb."
Feel doesn't mean anything if the mouse isn't good in action, and the MX Master performs brilliantly thanks to its Darkfield laser sensor. TrustedReviews says it's "accurate and versatile," leaving "nothing to be desired." It also works on almost any surface reviewers tried, with Gizmodo using the Master on a wooden desk and even a glass window, finding it "super accurate" and always "scrolls smoothly." And while it isn't as versatile as a gaming mouse, users who like a little more control over their peripherals will be more than pleased with the ability to customize every button on the MX Master thanks to the Logitech Options software.
Sure, plenty of people are exclusively using the trackpad on their laptop to navigate, making a $100 purchase like the MX Master seem almost silly. But those who still prefer to navigate with a mouse will find their money well spent in terms of comfort and performance.
