Logitech has introduced some new members of the MX product series, including the new MX Master 3S mouse and the MX Mechanical and Mechanical Mini keyboards. The new mouse offers additional approaches to improving comfort compared to the already excellent MX Master 3, while the keyboards are the first mechanical keyboards in the MX series.
All three devices are Bluetooth compatible and also come with a Logi Bolt receiver so you can connect to your devices the way you prefer. They also support customization through Logitech’s Logi options+ software.
MX Master 3S
One of the big improvements to the Logitech MX Master 3S is that it has a new 8000 DPI sensor, which is double what the MX Master 3 offered. Like that, Logitech says this sensor can track on most surfaces, including glass, and is best suited for high-resolution monitors where you may want to move your mouse more quickly. The mouse buttons have also been updated to be 90% quieter, so you don’t have to be distracted by clicking sounds while you work.
Other than that, this keeps what made the original MX Master 3 so great: It features Lofitech’s MagSpeed electromagnetic wheel that can scroll up to 1,000 lines per second, plus a horizontal scroll wheel on the side. It is also designed to be ergonomic for long periods of use. There are no left-handed options, but Logitech recently released the Lift vertical mouse, which may be more suitable for your needs.
The MX Master 3S is available now and costs $99.99, just like its predecessor. You can buy it below.

MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini keyboards
For keyboard enthusiasts, Logitech also announced the first mechanical keyboards in the MX line. Called simply MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini, these new keyboards are aimed at those looking for the feel of mechanical switches in a productivity keyboard. The regular MX Mechanical is a full-size keyboard, including a number pad, isolated arrow keys, and everything else you’d expect. The MX Mechanical Mini comes in a 65% compact design, giving you just the essentials for typing and browsing.
Both keyboards use low-profile mechanical switches, with Tactile Quiet Brown switches being the default option. In some markets, you’ll also have a choice of Clicky Blue switches or Linear Red switches. The keys themselves are dual-colored to make it easier to identify which keys are which in the peripheral view.
The keyboards also include intelligent backlighting with automatic brightness adjustment based on ambient light, including the ability to turn off completely when not needed. The backlight turns on when your hands approach the keyboard, so it’s always ready to go. You can also customize backlight effects and other settings using the Logi Options+ software.
Both keyboards are available now, with the MX Mechanical retailing for $169.99 and the MX Mechanical Mini retailing for $149.99. You can buy them below.
