Design & Comfort
The thumb rest is an especially handy edition, the back of the mouse swoops upward as well, so the user does not have to rest their thumb or palm on the ground. This means that the discomfort from having your hand positioned at an upward angle is completely avoided. In my time with the mouse, I never had to pause due to discomfort, which goes a long way during intense online play.
The mouse is visually striking as well, it's edges and cubic, mesh detailing hammer home the sleek and professional nature of the product.
The Bluetooth is surprisingly responsive. I didn't experience any sort of input delay or cutting out, although the latter has reportedly been an issue for some. The Bluetooth attachment (featured above) itself is conveniently small and makes setup a quick process; once the attachment is plugged in the mouse just needs to be turned on, selected as a device and connected.
The Bluetooth makes connections to three device easy as well, since the mouse includes an easy-switch button on its underside.
This comes in handy during both gameplay and general use, especially during games that require zooming through scopes or cameras, or webpages that require quick scrolling to a large amount of texts. It does take a little bit of getting used to, but it does end up solving various tasks more precisely.
The last set of features we'll look at are the set of buttons, thumb-wheel and gesture button located near the thumb rest. The buttons used for cycling back and forth through recent pages are the most useful of these, making web browsing a more convenient experience. I wasn't able to get much use out of the thumb wheel, but it does make side-scrolling through of pages quiet easy as well. The placement of both these buttons is perfect, as the thumb rest provides an easy access point for quickly cycling and navigating through pages.
The gesture button is a little more interesting. Accessed by combining a press of the thumb rest and the movement of the mouse in a certain direction the user can trigger any command they've assigned to that direction. This feature won't be triggered accidentally, since it requires some force, without being difficult to press. The versatility of the mouse really comes into its own here as users can customize this feature in order to fit their priorities. The process is also fairly simple and can be accessed through devices".
Overall, the MX Master offers flawless performance, but it comes at a very high price. I can't say it isn't worth it as this is just about the best mouse available at present
