PRESS RELEASE



May 24th 2022 - Today, Logitech expanded its Master Series with two new mechanical keyboards - the full-size MX Mechanical and minimalist MX Mechanical Mini - and MX Master 3S mouse. Logitech's Master Series brings advanced digital creators ultimate productivity tools, featuring high performance mechanical typing and precision tracking. "There is a growing community of software developers who fell in love with mechanical keyboards when they started playing games, and now they want the same feeling of precision and control with their professional desktop keyboard," said Tolya Polyanker, head of the MX Series for Creativity and Productivity at Logitech. "MX Mechanical combines the best of both - Logitech's gaming keyboard expertise with MX Master Series signature experiences."



MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini offer the latest generation of low profile mechanical switches. Tactile Quiet (Brown) key switch makes it Logitech's quietest mechanical keyboard ever with an amazing mechanical typing feel. Clicky (Blue) and Linear (Red) switch options are also available in select markets. The keyboards are designed with dual-colored keycaps for an optimized peripheral view. Smart backlighting, in six lighting options, automatically adjusts brightness for ambient light and switches off when not needed for efficient battery consumption.

To better address the needs of our advanced creators, MX Master 3S features an 8,000 DPI optical sensor that tracks on most surfaces including glass and offers faster workflow with high resolution monitors. Clicks are now 90% quieter compared to MX Master 3 while keeping the same satisfying precision feel so that you can focus on your work, not the noise.



The MX Master 3S features the MagSpeed Electromagnetic wheel that zips through 1,000 lines in one second, the side scroll wheel for faster horizontal navigation, and a unique ergonomic shape crafted for long hours of comfort.

MX Mechanical, MX Mechanical Mini and MX Master 3S are all compatible with Logi Options+ software - now out of Beta. Users can customize individual buttons, use pre-defined or create their own app-specific profiles, adjust tracking speed, select backlighting effects, and more to optimize their workflow. All three products, equipped with both Bluetooth and proprietary Logi Bolt wireless technology for a reliable, secure connection even in congested environments, can connect to up to three different devices and are compatible across a variety of operating systems, including Windows, macOS, iPadOS, Android, Chrome OS, and Linux.

Sustainability

At Logitech, products are designed to deliver great user experiences and minimize environmental footprint and the MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini were designed with your future in mind.

Plus, the aluminium top case for the keyboards is made from low carbon aluminium and produced with renewable energy rather than fossil fuels for a lower carbon impact. The MX Master 3S mouse is also made with PCR plastic - 27% for graphite and 22% for pale gray.

Editor Comment:

Despite the name given to the Logitech MX Mechanical keyboards, there is no indication on the part specification list of the provenance of the mechanical switches. They could be Cherry MX Low Profile switches, or designed in-house, or sourced from a different 3rd party.

* Note that UK MSRP for Logitech products tends to overshoot etailer pricing, so we wouldn't be surprised if actual street pricing differs from that listed.
