At IFA 2019 introduced their new products many famous manufacturers. Was no exception and Logitech, which has updated the line of ergonomic peripherals
Master for professionals. We were able to get close to the company’s stand at the exhibition and personally assess innovations. Looking ahead — upgrade succeeded.
Logitech MX Master 3
For many users the mouse is the first gaming accessory, but the market for computer peripherals is not limited to cyber scenarios. The choice of a suitable manipulator for graphics work like a brush artist: the first will not work. Ergonomically the MX series is well-known among professionals, who are used for hours to work with graphics, text, and other operations with high demands on ergonomics «rodent».
A new model of the popular line is not just another design rethinking, and a full upgrade. The manufacturer took something that worked great and made even better. Sounds simple, but in reality the work was impressive: a full third revision, and not the «second half».
Key changes to the controls due to the altered form of «influx» around the auxiliary wheel in hand, the mouse sits like a glove. Additional buttons on the side of the case in comparison with the predecessor has moved downward. Accidentally click them, and still need to try, but the load on the thumb is significantly decreased — it is not necessary to bend it at an unnatural angle.
Both wheels steel: this material is tactile and nicer «office» rubber coating, and over time will not lose presentable. Electromagnetic actuator MagSpeed and unlock function scroll allow you to scroll through up to 1,000 rows per second. Unlike the buttons on the keyboard, the process at any time to stop — this option is indispensable when working with large texts.
In order the controller and «brains»: it is able to independently navigate desktop applications and automatically choose the right profile in the right context. In the browser, the second wheel will control the zoom web pages, and in Photoshop — the size of the brush while manually switch the scenario in the corporate application is not necessary. Thanks to Logitech Flow instantly «jump» between multiple PCs running Windows and macOS, and copy files from one device to another.
Suitable new and for virtual entertainment: the sensitivity of the sensor to 4000 dpi will be enough to spare. A single charge built-in battery will last, according to the manufacturer, for 70 days. The charging port and USB Type-C: minutes from the outlet «rodent» is enough for three hours of work. The price — 7990 rubles.
Logitech MX Wireless Key
The low-profile keyboard with aluminum case has been the two types of connectivity — wired and wireless. In the second case, on a single battery charge it can work up to 10 days, and if you turn the backlight up to 5 months. Key trends — concave. According to a study conducted by the vendor, the smooth surface is one of the common causes of typos when typing. Due to its characteristic form fingers they don’t slip even when typing fast. Tactile work with a model reminiscent of the old MacBook: progress kakapo soft, but each click can be felt clearly.
1 / 3
The model is suitable for use with Windows and macOS: modifier keys like Alt and Ctrl got «dual citizenship». When switching between platforms right inscription will be evident after a few minutes of work. On sale Logitech Wireless MX Key will come at the same price as the mouse Master 3 MX — 7990 rubles.
Logitech M350 Pebble
Compact wireless mouse M350 Pebble does not claim to be eSports or professional. However, her trick is not in it: manipulator of original features and virtually silent operation. Special buttons design reduces the sound of a click by 90% while maintaining the tactile feedback. The price does not bite — just 1690 rubles. The mouse is available in pink, grey and white body colors.

The body shape of the model resembles pebbles — hence the unusual name. The small dimensions of the device allow to carry it either in the pocket: and for those who always need a full kit, the manufacturer has released a stylized typewriter wireless keyboard Logitech K380 in a similar color scheme.
All the models already available on the official website of the company, the date of the Russian release of new products will be announced later.
