After several hours of research, we've determined that the best wireless mouse available today is the Logitech MX Master 3. This sleek design features a revolutionary wheel, a laser sensor that works on any surface, and extremely fast charging. As an added bonus, it corrects the error of its elders by being better adapted to different body shapes. Still, we recommend that gamers turn to the Logitech G903, which is better suited to their specific needs.
Logitech MX Master 3
With the Logitech MX Master 3, you'll get the best of what's currently available. Innovative and productivity-oriented, it has many features optimized for managing multiple devices in parallel. It's more compact and lighter than the Master 2S, and it fixes many of its shortcomings, making it a benchmark in the market for those on a budget.
This interesting model is offered at a reasonable price in view of its functionalities. But it is above all its quiet operation, exceptional range and high compatibility that have made it stand out from its competitors. Small and light, it is comfortable and very pleasant for long periods of office use. On the other hand, it is only designed for right-handed users.
Logitech MX Master
Its atypical format with its additional wheel and its ergonomic design make it an excellent solution for office automation. The various controls are also configurable, allowing you to adapt it completely to your needs. Be careful, however, if you have small hands, it may not be comfortable because of the rather large size of this mouse.
Logitech M330 Silent Plus
Although it's less elaborate than the Logitech M590, it's still inexpensive while offering impressive range and quiet operation. It doesn't have as many features as its predecessor, but for basic use, it's among the best.
Logitech MX Anywhere 2S
Like the MX Master, it is equipped with a disengageable wheel, but its smaller size makes it much easier to transport. However, the downside is that the grip is less adapted to larger riders who will find it much too compact for a palm grip. This last factor is very important, especially if you plan to spend your day using it.
The Logitech G903 is a wireless mouse that combines speed, precision, and versatility. Ergonomics and design are also among its strengths. It could have been the best in its class, but it's far too specialized compared to the MX Master 3. Indeed, in terms of office automation, the G903, although fully configurable, is less practical than its MX Series counterpart.
Why trust us?
The editorial team spends thousands of hours researching, analyzing and comparing products to find the best value for money. None of our articles are sponsored. We sometimes receive a commission when you purchase a product through our links, which allows us to finance our work while remaining completely impartial.
How did we make our choice?
If you want to get the most out of your mouse on the go or want to get rid of the cable on your desk, you've probably thought about wireless models. But because there are so many of them, it's sometimes hard to find out which one is best for your use. To help you make your choice, we've tried to identify the best products currently available on the European market.
In order to do this, we looked at certain criteria:
- Shape and ergonomics
The mouse must be compatible with the shape of your hand to ensure a good grip and excellent comfort. The model that is right for you may depend on the size of your hand and the preferred hand you use (left or right-handed). Most mice are designed for right-handed users, but there are models for left-handed and ambidextrous users. Weight is also a factor, as a heavier model will tire your wrist more quickly.
The point of wireless is to be able to enjoy your mouse away from the desk. It is therefore important to adapt its size: aim for lightness and compactness. Autonomy should not be left out of the equation either. At the same time, the sensor must be as versatile as possible: optics are affordable but have more difficulty with reflective surfaces where lasers are versatile.
As Emilien (MacWay) tells us, your use will determine the degree of accuracy required: the higher the value, the greater the accuracy. Expressed in DPI (Dots Per Inch), it also allows you to adjust the sensitivity to displacement. For example, gamers will turn to mice with higher values.
- Controls and functions
Some products offer a more or less extensive range of controls and functions. Explore them to choose the options you need. For example, Logitech offers multi-device parallel operation via Easy-Switch, some products have configurable profiles, and others have a variety of buttons so you don't have to depend on your keyboard all the time. Once again, it's important what you use your mouse for.
Some mice work via a USB adapter, which is faster and more reliable, while others support Bluetooth. In any case, take into account the maximum range and latency for the best possible experience. Higher-end models usually add wired usage so you don't get stuck by a lack of battery power.
Check the compatibility of the mouse with your computer model. Generally, Windows and MacOS are provided but for others such as ChromeOS or Linux, it is sometimes complicated to find the perfect device.
We therefore started with around 30 models on the European market. Thanks to these criteria, we narrowed down the selection to about ten mice for the first time. Finally, by consulting the opinions of users, blogs, forums, English and French-speaking sites, we came up with a selection of 6 wireless mice belonging to different price ranges.
Logitech MX Master 3
At the cutting edge of technology, it is the best model available in our house, both in terms of comfort and pleasure. It takes up the torch of the Master 2S, improving an already very tempting recipe. Finer yet original, it is more comfortable and better adapted to different body shapes. The thumb space has been reworked to offer more intuitive access to the different buttons, correcting one of the main flaws of the previous version. On the other hand, its weight (141 g) is rather high compared to the competition (90 g for the best). In mobility, this template can also pose a problem due to its lack of compactness. However, with an announced autonomy of 2 months and a quick recharge (via USB-C!) of 1 minute for 3 hours of use, you do not risk running out of fuel.
Detection is provided by the Darkfield sensor. Usable on most surfaces (even glass), it benefits from a good precision with its resolution of 4000 DPI. On the other hand, forget gaming, because its 8 ms update time (compared to 1 ms in gamer) is too high (there is a risk of stalling). At the command level, you are entitled to six buttons configurable via the dedicated application. For these, you can download predefined profiles (for the Office suite or Adobe, for example) or set them entirely by yourself. The button on the thumb rest activates motion detection, allowing you to assign a feature to each direction (similar to the multitouch on touchpads). The disengageable MagSpeed wheel uses a new system based on electromagnetism. This makes it significantly quieter than the previous version and more pleasant to use. Scrolling is 90% faster and 87% more accurate. On the side you will find the traditional scroll wheel, which is more fluid.
The Master 3 can, just like the K780 keyboard, connect to 3 devices simultaneously (via USB receiver or Bluetooth). As a bonus, you'll find the Flow function, for working on several devices in parallel, and the Smart-Shift that automatically switches the wheel from one mode to the other if a slightly faster impulse is detected. All in all, the Logitech MX Master 3 gives you the best of what's currently available. It's compatible with Windows, Linux and MacOS.
This interesting model is offered at a reasonable price in view of its functionalities. But it is above all its quiet operation, exceptional range and high compatibility that have made it stand out from its competitors. Small and light (101 g), it is comfortable and very pleasant for long periods of use. It slips easily into your bag for all your travels. Its high autonomy is another important advantage, since it can, for standard use, keep the same battery (AA) for 24 months. That's much more than its direct competitors.
Another feature of this model is that it is silent. Noise pollution is reduced by 90%, which makes it very practical for professional use or for quiet areas. The detection of movements is ensured by an optical sensor. It is therefore better to have a mouse pad so as not to be surprised on certain surfaces. Its 1000 dpi sensor is very good in this price range. Just like the MX Master 3, it also has Easy-Switch technology, useful for connecting to several computers at the same time, and Flow for working on different devices simultaneously. This function is not found in all models in this range.
It connects via a Unifying Dongle, which synchronizes it to the computer, or via Bluetooth, with a wireless range of up to 10 meters, offering the possibility to keep remote control. It features configurable buttons and a multi-directional scroll wheel with remarkable precision, allowing total control over the mouse. Finally, note that the Logitech M590 is compatible with Windows, Mac, Chrome OS or Linux, making it almost universal in terms of compatibility. In short, it's an interesting model, offered at a reasonable price considering its features. But it is above all its silent operation, exceptional autonomy and great compatibility that made us distinguish it from its competitors.
Logitech MX Master
The first generation of the MX range, which has become a reference, inaugurated the atypical format that is currently well known. Its various configurable controls and its well thought-out ergonomics still make it a very good product. Be careful however, if you have small hands, it may not be comfortable because of its rather large size... Intended for office use, this mouse has been designed for long periods of use. Its rounded back is designed to guarantee good hand support while still allowing for use with a claw or fingertips. However, this format makes it uncomfortable for small users who will have difficulty finding a suitable position. The coating is qualitative, both on the top with a slightly granular plastic (to fight perspiration), and on the sides with a design and non-slip material.
On the left side is the thumb wheel, inaugurated with this model, and 3 buttons (one of which is hidden under the thumb rest). Many users report an unintuitive positioning of the navigation buttons, but their use is a matter of habit. In mobility, it is not the best of students. You are standing in front of a relatively massive mouse that still weighs a certain amount (145 g). It takes up a little space in your bag but you won't have anything to complain about its autonomy: 4 minutes of charge for 1 day of use and 3 hours for a full charge that lasts about 40 days. For precision, it uses the Darkfield sensor, still used on the last iteration. Precise and all-terrain, it adapts to every situation without any trouble. Its accuracy is however lower with a value of "only" 1600 DPI. Don't worry, it is high enough for work on Photoshop, for example.
As on the other models of this series, the dedicated software allows to program all the buttons with customized functions. The thumbwheel, once again disengageable, has SmartShift. On this product, some users note a lack of stability of this element. In terms of connectivity, you are entitled to a USB dongle and Bluetooth, coupled with the Easy-Shift. These are compatible with Windows and MacOS. It is also compatible with other systems but the configuration possibilities are reduced. In the end, even if it is older, the MX Master remains a reference at its price level.
Logitech M330 Silent Plus
Although it's less elaborate than the Logitech M590, it's still inexpensive while offering impressive range and quiet operation. It doesn't have as many features as the competition, but for basic use, it's among the best. The Logitech M330 comes in a classic, rounded shape. And although it looks a little cheap, it's actually both solid and very light (91 grams). On the other hand, because of its small size, it is especially recommended for small hands. The advantage of this format is its portability which, combined with a 2-year autonomy (1 AA battery), makes it a good tool when you travel. The main feature of this wireless mouse is its Silent Plus technology, which offers (almost) total noise reduction and makes it silent, allowing you to work in any environment without disturbing anyone. The serrated wheel also offers this advantage.
The mouse works with an optical sensor, reducing its use to certain surfaces. Thus, like the M590, it is unusable on glass. However, it can be used on a multitude of other soft surfaces such as a bed or couch. Which is not bad enough! With its maximum sensitivity of 1000 dpi, it is suitable for office use for several hours. On the other hand, contrary to what is announced, it is too little reactive and therefore not recommended for gamers.
It is connected via the USB-Unifying receiver (which synchronizes the mouse with the computer) with a wireless range of up to 10 meters, but it does not offer the opportunity to connect via Bluetooth. Nevertheless, it is equally suitable for Windows and Mac OS. Finally, although it's less elaborate than the Logitech M590, it's still a good solution for those looking for a solution without breaking the bank.
Logitech MX Anywhere 2S
Like the MX Master, it is equipped with a disengageable wheel, but its smaller size makes it much easier to transport. However, the downside is that the grip is less adapted to larger riders who will find it much too compact for a palm grip. This last factor is very important, especially if you plan to spend your day using it. This lightweight mouse (106 g) has a correct, all-purpose design and is symmetrical in design. This means that it can be used by both left- and right-handed users... even though it is intended more for left-handed users with its side buttons on the left side. Moreover, it has an autonomy of a few months at a rate of several hours per day. The battery recharges in no time at all, but it is possible to use it while it is charging.
It is equipped with the same Darkfield sensor as the top-of-the-line MX Master 3. It therefore adapts to all surfaces, smooth or reflective, including glass, while benefiting from high precision. Nevertheless, it should be noted that it is not so much suitable for gamers as for professional office use because the sensor cannot detect too fast movements. One of the advantages of this mouse is the presence of a disengageable wheel, usually intended for more expensive models. Even though Logitech has often experienced problems with this, it seems that Logitech has corrected the problem with this model. The seven buttons are configurable with easy-to-understand software.
As far as functions are concerned, we still benefit from Flow and Easy-Switch which offer the possibility to work on several computers at the same time, for the benefit of productivity. Its radio link via nano-USB Unifying sensor is efficient, but it can also be connected via Bluetooth. It has a wireless range of up to ten metres and is compatible with Windows and Mac OS. In conclusion, this mouse is a nice alternative to the MX Master while being more adapted to small hands.
The Logitech G903 is a wireless mouse that combines speed, precision, and versatility. Ergonomics and design are also among its strengths. It could have been the best in its class, but it's far too specialized compared to the MX Master 3. Indeed, in terms of office automation, the G903, although fully configurable, is less practical than its MX series counterpart. Its angular design and RGB system do not make it a model of discretion. In terms of ergonomics, this ambidextrous model with its reduced dimensions and contained weight (110 g) offers a pleasant grip, both in the palm and in the claw. The sides can be fully personalised thanks to the various removable elements, making it a real mouse for left-handed users. Designed for wireless use, this product can also be used in wired mode when charging. Its maximum autonomy is 180 hours but for average use, its resistance is about 140 hours with a reliable connection. To optimize this mode, you will have to buy a Powerplay mat that is quite expensive and unattractive on the road.
As you can see, the gaming orientation is not beneficial to mobility, but despite this, the G903 does rather well with a good optimization of its format. It's in performance that the G903 takes the lead. Fast and accurate, its HERO sensor offers five programmable sensitivity levels for the benefit of versatility. Its maximum resolution is 16,000 dpi. Combined with Lightspeed technology and near-zero latency (1 ms), this high value ensures that the G903 is ready for any situation.
At the equipment level, the disengageable knob is combined with up to 11 buttons. It's all configurable via Logitech G Hub software. It gives you the ability to customize the usage profile to suit the situation you're in, whether you're playing games or working in an office environment. In short, the Logitech G903 is an ergonomic and versatile wireless mouse that's ideal for gamers, but it also gives you the flexibility to use it in the office.
Logitech G305: A mid-range solution for gamers that uses Lightspeed technology to eliminate latency. It's compact, durable, and high-quality, and it's the perfect match for your games. With Logitech G Hub software, you can also set up to 5 profiles for your favorite games. It's not in our ranking because of its lack of versatility, but players on a tighter budget will love it.
Logitech MX Vertical: The Vertical is all about ergonomics. It allows a better wrist position (57° angle), reduces muscle tension by 10% and allows better economy of movement thanks to its high sensitivity. As a bonus, the Vertical offers a nice autonomy of about 4 months and access to Logitech Flow and Easy-Switch. We didn't choose it because of the limited number of features.
