Logitech’s popular prosumer line of mice gets a major refresh with the new Logitech MX Master 3. It is being accompanied by the also new Logitech MX Keys keyboard.
Let’s start with the Logitech MX Master 3, which now has an electromagnetic scroll wheel that they are calling MagSpeed. This provides 90% improved speed and is almost completely silent over the already impressive infinite scroll on the previous generations.
The wheel is now stainless steel, as well as the enlarged secondary wheel on the side. Logitech reallocated the two side buttons below the wheel for easier access. The thumb button was also improved.
Probably the biggest update here is the use of USB Type-C, as Logitech is finally retiring microUSB in their Pro line-up.
Some things remain unchanged. You can still pair it via Bluetooth or the unifying receiver, still has the Darkfield Tracking that works on any surface, and a 4,000DPI sensor. Logitech also claims that it can last for up to 70 days in a single charge.
It also has the Flow feature, which allows you to easily switch between different machines with less tinkering. For a more seamless experience, you can partner it with the new Logitech MX Keys so both of your peripherals are switchable.
Just like the former, this new keyboard is geared towards creatives and other professionals. It pairs seamlessly with the MX Master 3, so you can switch between computers by simply hovering the mouse between them.
It has spherically dished keys for comfortable typing. It even has proximity sensors to detect your hands and automatically powers the backlight to conserve battery.
Speaking of which, the Logitech claims that it can last for 10 days on a single charge, with up to 5 months with the backlighting disabled. It also charges via USB Type-C.
The Logitech MX Master 3 and MX Keys will both retail for USD99.99 (~Php5,200). You can purchase it at Logitech’s own store sometime this month, and will be available in other retailers on September.
