AN AWE­SOME TRAV­EL­ERS’ MOUSE

Log­itech MX Any­where 2

cus­tomiza­tion op­tions we es­pe­cially like is called the

Ges­ture but­ton. It al­lows users to in­voke cer­tain ac­tions sim­ply by swip­ing the mouse and hold­ing the as­signed Ges­ture but­ton down.

For ex­am­ple, af­ter as­sign­ing the lit­tle but­ton un­der the scroll wheel as the Ges­ture but­ton, I could skip mu­sic tracks sim­ply by hold­ing the Ges­ture but­ton and swip­ing right. Swip­ing left would play the pre­vi­ous track, while swip­ing up or down would let me quickly ad­just the vol­ume. The Ges­ture but­ton can also be setup for other func­tions like switch­ing be­tween ap­pli­ca­tions, zoom­ing in on web­pages, and more.

Like its pre­de­ces­sor, the MX Any­where 2 is also equipped with Log­itech's awe­some Dark­field laser sen­sor, which al­lows it to track on a mul­ti­tude of sur­faces, in­clud­ing wood, pa­per and glass. This is ex­cep­tion­ally use­ful when one can­not be picky about the sur­face that they can use for the mouse when trav­el­ling.

While our ex­pe­ri­ence with the MX Any­where 2 mouse is highly pos­i­tive, just re­mem­ber that it is an in­cred­i­bly pe­tite mouse, which lim­its its use out­side of be­ing your travel backup. If I may nit­pick fur­ther, the scroll wheel also doesn't reg­is­ter a mid­dle click. In­stead, click­ing changes the wheel's scrolling be­hav­ior be­tween free and ratch­eted. It can, how­ever, be clicked left and right, so you'll have to as­sign the mid­dle click to one of them as a work­around. Not a big is­sue, but can be frus­trat­ing af­ter a life­time habit of mid­dle-click­ing.
