   Thanks to large advancements in technology over the past decade wireless mice have finally started to become the ideal choice for many professionals and even gamers all over the world. Granted there aren't that many valid choices for extreme gamers in the market yet that defy the old "corded is best" motto (the most popular ones right now are the G903 by Logitech and the Mamba by Razer) but the list should expand quite a bit in 2018 (for example Razer just announced their groundbreaking HyperFlux Wireless Power Technology). Still not everyone is looking for a performance wireless gaming mouse and since Logitech is well aware of this they decided to take their very successful MX Master Wireless Mouse (released roughly 3 years ago) back to the drawing board to keep it up to date with all the latest advancements and the result is the MX Master 2S which we've been using through January.


   Logitech designs products that have an everyday place in people's lives, connecting them to the digital experiences they care about. Over 30 years ago, Logitech started connecting people through computers, and now it’s designing products that bring people together through music, gaming, video and computing. Founded in 1981, Logitech International is a Swiss public company listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange (LOGN) and on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (LOGI). Find Logitech at www.logitech.com, the company blog or @Logitech.


   The very first difference people will notice when looking at both the MX Master and the MX Master 2S is that the latter lacks the copper edges/surroundings of the former and is now available in three different color combinations graphite, midnight teal and light gray (the original was available in black/copper, navy and stone colors). Just like its predecessor the new MX Master 2S can be used both wired and wirelessly, has a total of 7 buttons with two scroll wheels and features pretty much the exact same hand-sculpted right handed housing (sorry people, not ambidextrous), 500mAh lithium-polymer rechargeable battery and the same 2.4GHz advanced unifying wireless technology (32ft/10m range) which allows the end user to connect up to 6 Logitech wireless devices using just a single USB dongle (you can also connect the MX Master 2S with up to a total of 3 systems either via Bluetooth v4.0 and later or Logitech unified USB dongles). Under the hood however the brand new MX Master 2S is superior to its predecessor not only due to its updated version of the Darkfield high precision laser sensor (210IPS/50G/1000Hz) which can now reach all the way up to 4000DPI via 50DPI increments (as opposed to the 1600DPI of the original MX Master) but also because of its improved power management which gives it a life of up to 70 days (vast difference compared to the 40 days of its predecessor).
