Logitech has announced the MX Master 3S mouse and two mechanical keyboards Wireless MX. The mouse is the upgrade of the super popular MX Master 3, while the MX Mechanical keyboards are totally new products that promise to take advantage of the experience of Logitech in gaming keyboards.
The MX Mechanical keyboard comes in a 75% compact, full-size variant known as the MX Mechanical Mini. Both seek to combine the strengths of mechanical keyboards with the productivity-focused features of the company’s MX Keys membrane keyboard.
“There’s a growing community of software developers who fell in love with mechanical keyboards when they first started gaming, and now want the same sense of precision and control with their professional desktop keyboard,” said Tolya Polyanker, head of creativity and productivity at MX series at Logitech. “MX Mechanical combines the best of both worlds: Logitech’s gaming keyboard expertise with experiences unique to the MX Master Series.”
Both the MX Mechanical and Mechanical Mini feature low-profile 19mm “Tactile Quiet (Brown)” switches that Logitech claims make them the company’s quietest mechanical keyboard. However, for those who prefer clicky (blue) or linear (red) switches, they will be offered in select markets.
Other features include Smart Illumination that automatically illuminates the keyboard if it detects hands approaching, and Dual Color Keycaps to make it easier to see the keys on the peripheral. You can also customize lighting effects from six different settings: Static, Breathing, Contrast, Wave, Random, and React.
Logitech claims that the MX Mechanical can last up to 15 days on a single charge or up to 10 months if you keep the backlight off. Like the MX Master 3S, the MX Mechanical keyboards are also made from PCR plastic (45% for the full size, 47% for the Mini).
The MX Master 3S, on the other hand, retains the same general design as the MX Master 3, which is among the best wireless mice you can buy. but it adds some new features to help it stand out. The first is the “Quiet Click” which Logitech says makes 90% less noise than the MX Master 3. The MX Master 3S also features an 8K sensor which gives it a maximum sensitivity of 8,000 dots per square inch (DPI). . That’s twice as responsive as the MX Master 3, although the DPI isn’t adjustable.
Environmentally, the MX Master 3 is made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic (27% for the graphite model and 22% for the gray). Other features are the same as the Master 3, such as the Logi Bolt, which allows connectivity to up to three different devices.
The price of the MX Master 3S is $99, the same as the MX Master 3. The MX Mechanical will cost $170, while the Mini will cost $150. All three devices will be available this month.
