Very Nice Mouse - Beware Super Loud Button Clicks
Reviewed in the United States on January 24, 2018
I've been a fan of Logitech mice and keyboards for a long time, and went through a couple of the older MX Anywhere model over the years before buying this MX 2S. I have always liked the MX line because I prefer a small, agile mouse, and find the forward / back side buttons to be so useful that any mouse without them just seems silly.
This MX 2S feels like it glides smoother and tracks more precisely than than original MX. The rechargeable batter is also a nice change from the older model using regular batteries, though using it with the cord attached to charge is a little too reminiscent of the old days before wireless mice. I'm not interested in any of the document transfer software, so I can't speak to that.
Overall, I think this is a great mouse EXCEPT for one annoying flaw. The left and right button clicks are EXTREMELY LOUD. Side by side, the older MX makes a nice and fairly subtle click, while the MX 2S produces a comparatively loud, hollow, almost snapping sound.
I had never considered my noise threshold for tolerable computer peripheral sounds, mouse clicks, keyboard strokes, etc., but the MX 2S definitely crosses a line for me where it's too loud to ignore as it announces to the room your every mouse decision. Editing something that requires a lot of clicking and double clicking? Apologize in advance to anyone nearby because it gets annoying fast.
If everything else about the mouse wasn't so perfect, I'd have rated it lower and probably returned it. It really is a great mouse, and I'm hoping it will either get a bit quieter as I break in the buttons more, or I just get used to the sound. Or I guess there's always loud music to drown it out.
