The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is basically that of a wireless mobile mouse at its core. It is a travel-friendly version of the company’s flagship computer peripheral, the MX Master Wireless. This trimmed down variant is placed at a relatively decent price point, even for a high-end mouse, and it does offer great performance for what it’s worth.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Delivers Great All-Around Performance
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 can be used on Mac and Windows laptops, and right out of the box, you will be able to like it a lot, albeit comfort is far superior on the MX Master Wireless. Nevertheless, it is still comfortable enough as what you would expect from a rather compact design. Its design is portable enough that you would be able to easily fit it inside the pocket of your laptop bag. Also, it offers a light weight of 3.7-ounces so it won’t bog down the weight of your bag, nor is it heavy enough that it will work against its performance.
As what you would expect from a computer peripheral found with a high-end price tag, the MX Anywhere 2 has a lot of features in-store for you. These are thanks to the Logitech Darkfield Laser technology, wherein the mouse should work in just about any surface. It can even work on glass surfaces, wherein most optical mice would have immense trouble working when placed on top of such a material.
This particular computer peripheral has an integrated battery that is rated to last up to 60-days on a single charge. This is almost double the battery life as to what the MX Master Wireless can handle. You can even continue to use the mouse while it’s charging through the use of its micro-USB cable. It even has quite the speedy charging process as 1-minute of charging will already net you approximately 2-hours of battery life.
With the use of the Logitech Options software, you can customize all the buttons found on the Logitech MX Anywhere 2. There’s even an added bonus for Mac users as it adds the extra luxury of gesture support. In other words, most of the multi-finger trackpad gestures that can be used on a Mac coomputer can be replicated on this Logitech mouse. Overall, this is indeed a worthy successor to the MX Anywhere, and a great sibling to the MX Master Wireless. However, the original model does come with a carry-on pouch whereas this newer variant does not.
