Logitech Brings Performance to Ergonomics in New MX Line Mouse and Keyboard
It is not difficult to understand why Logitech, a peripheral manufacturer of hers, one of the largest companies in the business: she creates products thinking precisely about the intensity with which users use them daily, coupling them performance and ergonomics (which are never too much).
Following this philosophy, the company launched this week the mouse MX Master 3 and the keyboard MX Keys, two new products that continue the legacy of its illustrious MX line.
MX Master 3
Following the success of the MX Master 2S, Logi has perfected what could be improved and retained the most well-liked features by users in the new MX Master 3 mouse, which elevates the already very high performance concept by bringing together new technologies.
One of the main novelties of this version is the scroll wheel, which now has a new electromagnetic system calledMagspeed which replaces the mechanical mechanism, offering more resistance and a "silent mode". The new wheel is also made entirely of stainless steel, which is even more pleasing to the touch than the rubber casing of the previous model.
The manufacturer has improved the design of the thumb buttons and side scroll wheel, which has also been finished in stainless steel. In addition, the back / forward buttons are now below the side wheel, making it easy to use. Finally, Logi changed the Micro-USB port to a USB-C in the new model, increasing recharge efficiency.
As we said, some positive features of the MX Master 2S have not changed in this release, including the sensor. Darkfield of 4,000dpi, the feature Flow It is the 500mAh rechargeable battery, which can last up to 70 days.
MX Master 3 is available from Logitech's US online store for $ 100 (there is no information yet when it will be sold at the Brazilian store).
Together with the MX Master 3, Logi introduced the MX Keys keyboard the "spiritual" successor of the Craft Keyboard. Unlike the model introduced in 2017, which aimed at editing professionals, the MX Keys is a full-featured general-purpose keyboard and offers some very interesting features.
Like the Craft model, the MX Keys has the intelligent backlight feature, which makes the keys stay lit when your hands are close to the keyboard (without touching it). This is possible thanks to a pair of sensors, which also identifies the intensity of ambient light to adjust the keyboard brightness.
As for the key components of the alphanumeric keyboard (the keys), Logi has maintained the use of its patented technology. Perfect stroke, which in addition to offering a stepped design for the fingers, softens the sound of the keys. In addition, just like MX Master 3, MX Keys also features Flow, making it possible to connect the keyboard and switch it with up to three computers.
According to the company, MX Keys sensors have been updated to optimize keyboard battery life; so with smart backlighting enabled, the battery can last up to 10 days with backlighting off, this time can extend up to 5 months.
As a keyboard set, Logi has also launched the new MX Palm Rest (shown in the image above), a hand rest that enhances ergonomics when typing. While MX Keys sell for $ 100, MX Palm Rest is available for $ 20.
