In terms of design, the MX Anywhere 3 is similar to the 2s everywhere, but it has the new silicone side grips and a slightly higher pump on the back, which makes it a little easier to fit in the palm of your hand. As someone familiar with the big mouse like the MX Master 2s, nowhere did the 3 feel small at first. However, it didn’t take long for my hand to adjust and use those side buttons – not only during video chats, but also when scrolling the page. You can scroll side-by-side with the mouse by pressing a side button and simultaneously moving the maxspeed wheel. It’s more complicated than it sounds and I love the side wheel that adorns the MX Master 2s and its successors.
This mouse is a smaller version of the MX Master 3 based on the new Metal Max Speed wheel. It brings electromagnetic scrolling anywhere 3, which is much more accurate and faster than the previous scrolling mechanism anywhere in 2s. The new mouse also has 4000 dpi Darkfield technology, which allows it to track any object, even the mirror, and the wheel has a middle click function, which you can customize in the Logitech options.
You can customize the scroll power in Logitech’s software, which increases or decreases the number of lines you feel when scrolling in ratchet mode. By default, the top button switches between ratchet and hyperfast scrolling mode, but like most buttons on MX devices, you can change the action assigned to that button in the options.
All of these features allow you to customize the way you use 3 anywhere, and this is a good thing with the mouse you want to use. Anywhere. In the two days I spent with 3 anywhere, I used it on my desk and on my bed, on my kitchen countertops, and briefly on a glass side desk in my living room, it worked well in all those environments. I haven’t charged it once since it was taken out of the box due to the mouse’s 70 day battery life. It also charges via USB-C, which is a solid perk for those who are sick of viewing old micro USB ports on newer devices.
The Logitech MX ubiquitous comes in 3 global versions, which are compatible with most operating systems, including Chrome OS and Linux, and are compatible with MacOS. The former runs via Bluetooth or with the included USB receiver, the latter is Bluetooth only. Both cost $ 79 and are available for pre-order today Logitech website.
