The latest addition to Logitech's MX series has been unveiled, and it looks to be the line's best yet. If you happen to use a computer on a daily basis, whether for work, gaming, or surfing the internet, you have likely experienced discomfort stemming from using your mouse. Logitech's newest MX Vertical mouse was scientifically tested and designed with that in mind, in an effort to reduce muscle fatigue and forearm strain by up to 10% as opposed to a standard mouse.
The 'MX Vertical' is as if the MX Master grew up. Its form has you hold it in the handshake position, with a 57-degree vertical angle which alleviates some of the tension that arises from the extended use of a traditional mouse. It's built to fit a variety of hand shapes and sizes and has a 4,000 DPI high-precision sensor along with a cursor speed switch allowing you to adjust the DPI speed with the press of a button.
Like the MX Master, this mouse is capable of seamlessly switching between multiple computers. You can even copy and paste files between them. There are a few different ways it can be used too; a USB-C cable is included which lets you use the mouse or charge it up, and there's also a USB unifying receiver which would allow you to use the mouse wirelessly. It's Bluetooth-compatible, too, and has a battery which can last for up to four months on a single charge.
Though Logitech just announced this mouse yesterday, it's already available for pre-order on its site for $99.99. It should begin shipping sometime during September.
You can get other vertical mouses for less money, like the well-reviwed $20 Anker wireless vertical mouse, but with them comes a compromise on a good number of the great features the MX Vertical includes. Logitech has an ergonomic wireless keyboard which would pair nicely with the MX Vertical too.
