Frankly, I do not know what happened to me. My old Logitech Blue Mouse was showing her age. The scroll wheel was squeaking. I put small round stickers at the bottom to keep the trace running smoothly. And began to change color in a disturbing way suggesting that it was harboring rare and dangerous bacteria (Gravity!), And put a color on those dark spots with Sharpie to hide them and hope to eliminate anything that may grow and develop there.
It was time for the love of heaven to get a new mouse. But who? I did not want to buy some boring mouse and it consisted of $ 15. I wanted something heavy, I felt privileged in my hand, buttons clicked with a solid and satisfactory click, and maybe I also added a refreshing element to the workflow by saving a few clicks or keystrokes.
So, throughout this month, nuts went to try to find the right mouse. I tried them at almost every price, from $ 10 to $ 80. When I write this, there are a few mice in the boxes on the floor of my desk waiting to go back to Amazon, and there are at least eight on my desk from the current "search" and the former. After all this madness, I found an ideal mouse, so you do not have to search for it. If you are looking for a last minute holiday gift, or looking for an old mouse replacement, I'm here to help you.
Logitech M705 Marathon. I just bought it already. Of all the mice I've tried, I'm the ones I use to write this story. I can safely describe it as the best mouse I have ever used. (Seriously.) It costs only $ 25. It is a strong feeling, with the right amount of weight. The feel of the plastic is sleek, but not patches, and cool on the touch and feel a bit like a thin layer of rubber above the aluminum. The two main buttons click with gorgeous pop. Keeps track as smooth as a glass which is large enough to prevent your hand from cramping up. Marathon feels more expensive than other mice that cost three times the price. It has no buttons and features that are hard to detect.
Marathon's most exciting feature: The gripper button that separates the ratchet by clicking and editing the scroll wheel for smooth rotation, allowing you to jump to the top of a Twitter feed or a sprawling text block. There are two programmable bonus buttons to the left. I use it in the Task Control System in Mac OS, which displays all open windows and desktop computers, and Launchpad, an iOS app player. Both of them interrupt the clutter of open applications and windows quickly and without distraction.
My only complaint: The clickable button is programmable is tricky. It must be compacted in a precise manner to work. But who cares? Marathon makes you want to sit and work.
Logitech MX Master 2S Mouse ($ 71): It's great. Expensive. It's swollen. It feels cheaper than a marathon and costs about three times that. There is a reason Steve Jobs, who insisted on simplicity, was right to stand on one button – this mouse is it.
After decades of fluctuating technological innovation across computer work, the mouse, 50 years after its invention, Retains its basic utilitarian purpose: refers to objects, selects and transmits them. Gobsmackingly, and Manages the MX master to confuse this singular purpose. Contains an extra button where the thumb can be compressed to create actions using mouse gestures – panning, zooming, zooming, and rotation. I did not get the feature to work, although I gave up very quickly.
There is also a programmable scroll wheel again for your thumb. I used it to control the volume of music – which is great, so I remembered what you paid for this thing. What's more, the MX Master car driver disassembled the scroll wheel not only on this mouse but also for the old Logitech, too. The bugs arise from a dispute with Mojave, the latest version of the Mac OS, and it is easily fixed in your system preferences. (Logitech says it resolves the problem). However, I found myself seeming around using the mouse mouse and its program until I found the fix in the message board. It cost me an hour of work time. You've returned Master MX this week.
Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse ($ 60): This is probably the most popular design that comes on the mouse in two decades. The bow is flexible and you bend to the curve to turn it on. It is small but its shape and rubber feel look great in your hand. The touch-sensitive bar that replaces the scroll wheel does not give any comments, making scrolling awkward, and my hands too tight to use. (There is a newer model for a few more dollars that includes an Apple-like surface similar to the scroll button, and may address this problemA perfect mouse to throw in your bag or carry it between meetings as it folds flat.
Jelly Comb 2.4 ($ 9.95): This is the cheapest rat I've tried, and there's so much to like about it. It's a low profile, so it's also good to throw your bag. Jelly comb is a rough hit from the Apple Magic Mouse 2 and the design is pleasing. Unlike all other mice, the Jelly Comb scroll wheel is a rubber ball that is more beautiful than most coarse wheels. (Be warned that: despite appearances, it does not trace left to right). Jelly comb is a very small boy to be a daily driver, but this mouse has a lot of magic. For $ 10 you can not make a mistake.
Logitech MX ERGO Wireless Trackball ($ 69): I never had a mouse ball this time My curiosity is disturbed. It's fun to be able to pass the cursor over Screen, kind of like a foosball man's yarn. There is a button that slows the cursor speed to make a more precise maneuver so that you can access what you need to click on it.
The mouse is heavy and can be angled at an angle to accommodate carpel tunnel victims in the technology industry. It is also large and spacious, so the palm of your hand stands out nicely. I wanted this mouse to work for me but in the end the trackball was more useful than the feature. I found myself feeling angry after a day of working with him. I also tested a cheaper version of this Logitech mouse – M570 wireless trackball ($ 25). It's not heavy, and plastic looks cheaper, but it's a perfectly accurate mouse, and costs less than half of its MX ERGO.
Round the bonus
Magic Trackpad from Apple. I bought the first generation Magic Trackpad used a bit About $ 50 on eBay. (The second-generation model is sold at $ 130.)
The beauty of this thing is that it brings gestures that you previously used only on your laptop on your desktop. There's more to this trackpad than you think: flick with two fingers, three, four fingers, and a pin to zoom in or get to the desktop quickly. Trackpads like these boards should be standard on each desk – the mouse to the right, the trackpad to the left. The mine is used to quickly scroll through websites and as an additional way to navigate between windows and applications. The four-finger flick shows all the things I work on. In conjunction with the mouse, this is the fastest way to roam across your computer. It's a great feeling to use.
Magic Trackpad works with limited functionality on your PC and there are other less elegant options for Windows. Tracks like this should not be limited to laptops, but are very useful and very enjoyable.
Pair it with the M705 marathon, and you set it.
