Logitech Just Made a Crazy, Vertical Mouse

Posted on August 20, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 27 Comments

I have been using my original Logitech MX Master for years, and it’s been amazing to use. Over the years, Logitech has iterated the original MX Master, launching products like the MX Master 2 and 2S. Today, Logitech is taking a huge step forward with the new MX Vertical.

Logitech’s new MX Vertical is almost like a vertical mouse. It works at a 57-degree vertical angle, which, of course, looks really weird. But Logitech says the ergonomic design of the mouse allows for less muscle strain, due to the muscular activity being reduced by up to 10% compared to a regular mouse. The design also requires 4x less hand movement. All of this seems pretty minor, but if you are a fan of ergonomic mouse designs and want something that’s way more comfortable during long periods of use, the MX Vertical could be a good option.

Unlike the original MX Master, the MX Vertical comes with sensitivity options of up to 4,000 DPI. And that’s really about it — the $99.99 mouse with all the other customization features you can get on the MX Master, so you can configure them to do almost whatever you want. The device is available for pre-order starting today, and you can get one for yourself here.
