My old mouse (Logitech Anywhere M905) was still running strong when I decided to get a new one. I try to reduce AA/AAA battery usage in my house, and I like the fact that the new model called Logitech MX Anywhere 2S has white colour option and Bluetooth connectivity with easy switching connectivity between 3 devices. Perfect for home desktop computer, laptop and tablet. Ok I admit, my first trigger of consideration was the colour, it looks great in my white-themed desk.
Logitech MX Anywhere 2S has built-in rechargeable Li-Po (500 mAh) battery. According to Logitech website, one full charge can last up to 70 days, I have used this mouse for almost 2 months and it’s still on my first (initial) charge. We can use it with the standard Unifying receiver USB dongle, or we can use its Bluetooth connectivity capable of quick switching between 3 devices. This mouse uses Darkfield 4000 dpi high precision sensor. This technology allows us to use this mouse on almost any surface.
The scroll wheel is standard Logitech’s 2-speeds: the hyperfast scrolling and precision scrolling. We can choose between the two modes by simply clicking on the wheel. There are 7+1 buttons on this mouse: left and right click, forward and backward, middle click, the left and right tilt wheel. At the bottom of the mouse, we can see one additional button for switching devices as well as on/off switch.
All my customisations from the old M905 automatically got picked up by the new mouse, so I couldn’t be happier.
Branding on the mouse appears as “Logi” instead of “Logitech”. There is one LED indicator at the top for battery power and 3 LEDs at the bottom for easy-switching device indicator. Optional Logitech Flow app brings cool feature allowing us to move our mouse cursor across three computers and even copy/paste text, images and files from one computer to another. Perfect solution for those who constantly work with multiple devices at the same time.
This mouse is a smaller version of the more-powerful Logitech MX Master series. I always like the Anywhere series better because of the more compact form-factor. Anywhere 2S is only 61.6 x 100.3 x 34.4 mm, weighs 106 gr. Very compact and practical for both mobility, or just staying at home with small desk.
So far, I love my new mouse. It runs smoothly. It feels good on my palm. My desk looks better, and there is one less device that uses AA/AAA batteries in my home.
