It's been nearly four years since Logitech debuted its MX Master mouse, a product that has flourished within the productivity space and withstood the test of time. Now the company is introducing a successor to its flagship mouse with the MX Master 2S, which brings some modest improvements in terms of tracking speed and sensor sensitivity.
The biggest change is the MX Master 2S's 8,000 dots-per-inch (DPI) optical sensor, which doubles the previous model's DPI range. That extra granularity should come in handy for professionals that require pixel-perfect precision, such as video editing and graphics design.
Also new is the MX Master 2S's "DPI-aware scroll wheel," which automatically shifts from step to hyper-fast scroll when you spin it at a high pace. This feature can be useful for navigating long documents, navigating wide web pages and even scrubbing through a track in a program like Audacity.
The other big change is that the MX Master 2S supports a maximum of three PCs or Mac computers with its Unifying 2.4GHz dongle or Bluetooth connectivity. A button on the bottom of the mouse lets you dynamically switch between the devices, which is great for people that use their laptop at work and then go home to a desktop.
Other notable features include a second thumb scroll wheel, which can be configured in the Logi Options+ software to act as a horizontal or vertical scroll, a quick-access button for switching between two different PCs and an assignment button that lets you switch between modes on the fly (DPI/Flow). The mouse also uses quieter mouse clicks and can save your settings to the cloud. Logitech also makes its MX Master series carbon neutral with paper packaging sourced from FSC-certified and other controlled sources.
