You will be forgiven for thinking that every mouse scroll wheel is the same, because for the most part they are. Wrap the wheel under your finger until it clicks fully. Logitech's new Magit Master Magnetic Mouse has a slightly different approach and is delightful in a way I would never expect.
Instead of using a physical mechanism to provide tactile clicks that allow you to scroll, say, a spreadsheet one by one, the MX Master 3 uses magnetic resistance to create the same effect. Feels just like you scrolling slowly, but it also gives the mouse a superpower: Scroll fast enough and the magnets are released, then the entire metal wheel is released to spin smoothly and freely with a quiet, satisfying mechanical hiss. Give this bad boy a try and he'll spin smoothly at his own inertia. This is satisfying in a way that I cannot describe, and that I also cannot get enough of.
While this is certainly a fun trick, it is more than that. This freewheel rotation (which can also be activated on request with a special button) will allow you to scroll through dozens of document pages or thousands of rows of spreadsheets with unparalleled ease. Of course, if you find yourself doing it regularly, it may be more appropriate to use the Find function or build a hyperlinked table of contents, but at least there is a reason other than "Why not?"
This feature is not new for Logitech's MX Master 3 mouse, but it was also available with earlier mice than the line, but with an application that felt worse and stronger. The polished version of Master 3 is a completely different animal. And the mouse boasts more than just a luxury scroll wheel. It also allows you to program a selection of custom buttons through your bundled software (running on MacOS, Windows, and Linux), offers a 40,000 DPI sensor, a very comfortable ergonomic body and USB-C charging, with port which is not useful at the bottom so you can load and use it at the same time if you need to.
After all, while the MX Master 3 mouse is one of the best you can put your hands on, it comes at a great price of $ 100 when it ships later this month. And despite its great fit and finish, I don't think it will usurp my favorite trackball. But it's certainly one of the coolest mice I've ever used, and it has ruined me for every other scroll wheel forever.
