    Interesting…the MX Anywhere 2s is now only $1 cheaper than MX Master 2s…

    •  

      Stay away from the MX Anywhere 2S. It maybe a useless piece of junk, depending on your usage in that you can't use the scroll wheel as the third house click. I returned mine for a refund and got the MX Master 2S.

      The MX Master 2S isn't that great either, I don't think it's as comfortable to use as the Performance MX from previous years. Pity my Performance MX died after 6 years.

        The Performance mx has a shocking battery life, i am recharging mine every 5-7 days.. how did yours die? mine was playing up, left click button was registering twice with each click. I had to open it up to adjust the tiny spring.

        •  

          Looks like I am not the only one with issues with the Performance MX. Mine has exactly the same issue as what you described - i.e. registering twice with each left mouse click.

        •  

          My Performance MX makes this high pitch whine when you move it. Not as noticeable during the day but it drives me crazy when i'm using it at night when it's dead quiet (like now)!

        •  

          @jeeg: the double click issue is quite common.. search on youtube for the fix..

        •  

          I think they eventually used a cheaper micro switch. My Performance MX has been going strong since 2009 (one of the early batches), with many rounds of Diablo 3, the mouse destroyer.

          Diablo 1 destroyed my Microsoft Intellimouse, Diablo 2 destroyed my Microsoft Intellimouse Optical. Had a Logitech MX900 which I wore the plastic down to black, and eventually had to replace it because the base station did not support Windows 7 64-bit.

          My Performance MX survived Diablo 3 and its expansion packs. I like it so much that I bought 2 additional Performance MX's when they were being cleared to make way for the MX Master. We'll see if these 2 "newer" ones have the left click issue. Long live Performance MX!

          For those with battery issues with the Performance MX, use better NiMH batteries. I've used a whole range and the one with the best lifespan is still the original 2000 mAh Eneloops from Japan.

          I didn't have issues with battery, I used it for work, M-F and occasionally weekends as well for a good solid 6 years. I would say I recharged the battery once every 2 months. The battery is still strong, however sadly I also experienced double click issues, but the biggest problem was the laser tracking was fouling up, the mouse pointer started jumping all over the screen or sometimes didn't move at all. I wish I can fix it because I still rate it better than the MX Master 2S that I just got.

        •  

          Lucky you. I can tell you the Performance MX is way more comfortable for daily use than the MX Master - not that it's bad, it just that the Performance MX was perfect from a design point of view.

        •  

          I changed the microswitch in mine after clicking it to death while playing WoW (yes, I was a clicker). It's been going like a champ at work, with the MX Master at home.

        •  

          @knackers: Thanks mate

        •  

          @Sleepycat3: Sure it's not a gaming mouse but my Logitech M705 is still alive with the original 2xAA batteries and report at 65% capacity. After 7 years of every business day office use. The cells expired in 2014. I think it's running on nuclear or something, can't believe it's still going. I use it every day at work still.

        •  

          @decr: I have a 25yr old Sharp scientific calculator that is running on the original batteries.. It survived highschool, uni, post grad and worklife. I'm a design engineer so you can imagine the bashing it receives.

          I have MX Master and MX Anywhere 2 (the predecessor of these S') Have lots of problem with them, the quality wasn't so great (had a few DOA and some developed problem after several months of light use) - I still stick with one though as I really like the aesthetic, ergonomic, and functionality.

          And yes, the battery on the MX Master does not last very long. On the other hand, the MX Anywhere 2 has excellent battery life.

  •  

    It's like buying a pair of shoes. You can't charge people for having bigger feet you know

  •  

    Excellent price, just need a reason to replace my MX Anywhere. It spilled with the water and didn't work for a while, but now still works so fine.
    Buy a good mouse and enjoy it.

    i think OW is doing the same price atm?can i ask ow to beat jb for 5%?

      I don't think you can price match if they are the same price. I think I tried it once and that's what they said but could be wrong.

    Are these any good for gaming?
    Does the battery last as long as the hero sensor ones?

    •  

      Had one but felt a bit on the big side for gaming. If you want a wireless gaming mouse the g403 is great.

    •  

      Pretty good, almost as comfy as my old Sidewinder X8. Battery lasts a good, say, 20 hours? Ie a couple weeks to a month IME

    •  

      Some people say it's not good for gaming, but I play FPS with one and it's fine.

    •  

      Think the previous mx master was reported to have inbuilt mouse acceleration, you'll have to check online if its the same for this one

      G403 wireless/G703 G900/G903 if you're looking at something wireless and well reviewed

    On Windows XP I cannot use the extra button and the extra scroll wheel….. but good ergonomics and can be used on different devices.

      Honestly curious, what do you still use Windows XP for? Do you have old software that will only run on it?

        Maybe he likes living on the edge? Never know when it will be the last day before the ransomeware comes along and fries the thing completely!

        I guess my desktop PC stood still while the world moved on to the systems Microsoft pre-installed on their systems.

        Individuals like you in a government job (judging by your location) probably buy a $1000 video card and a $1000 phone every year but for me really the only nuisance of XP has been that it has never been able to use the 4GB of RAM I originally bought for it. I did buy a second-hand Windows 7 PC but it died within a week so I am back to the Windows XP setup.

        But yes, time to move on to something that can use more RAM and recognise an SSD. Also web browsers have started to pull support for XP.

        I don't think that Windows XP has been bettered but Windows 7 and 10 are still quite similar.

          I personally build my own computers, and admittedly I have a GTX1080 graphics card, but that's because I use a 4k monitor and am planning on a 4k TV, I use the computer for gaming and I use SVP to interpolate everything I watch.

          I could never imagine spending 1k every year on a new phone, I currently have a OP3 that I bought to upgrade from my 40 dollar phone that was utter rubbish, and I plan on using my OP3 for a long time to come.

          Doesn't not being able to run 64 bit programs (unless you're using the 64 bit version of XP, which was uncommon) cause problems? If you're not worried about not being able to run everything, is there a reason you don't use Linux instead?

          As for XP being similar to Windows 7 and 10, while they may appear similar, there's been a lot of changes that aren't visible, a bit like replacing the engine on a car and giving it a new paint job won't make it look completely different, but it'll run a lot smoother.

          You're more than welcome to run whatever you like on your computer, but I'm curious as to why you don't use an up to date version of Linux if you just do word processing and Web browsing etc, as it'd likely run faster, be more secure and wouldn't cost anything.

          As for the dead Windows 7 computer, when a computer dies it's usually only a single part that dies, and repairs can cost very little. Do you know anyone who would be able to take a quick look at it and fix it? Typically hard drive or PSU failure is most common, and a new PSU or HDD/SSD isn't very expensive. You could probably even use parts from the XP computer to repair it.

          If there's anything you have that only runs on XP like I do, you could just virtualise it with Virtualbox for free. You could even virtualise your current computer and boot into it if you need to.

          Anyway, getting a bit off topic, but my main question is what do you currently use the XP computer for?

    Love the MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse

  •  

    Still rock my MX Master to this day. Hasn't skipped a beat battery still lasts forever - however same can't be said for my MX Anywhere 2 mouse - thing dies after a couple days have a feeling it might be faulty.

    •  

      Left my MX Anywhere 2s on over Xmas at work and it was still chugging today - circa 10 days? My MX Anywhere would probably be dead even with eneloops.

    Hi

    What is the main difference between series one and two?

    I bought a series one from jb still sealed

    Might change it now the series two is on sale

    Thanks

    •  

      The 2s has around 70 days (advertised) battery life, it's a good mouse I own 2

    •  

      Doubled battery life is main change, max DPI has also increased from 1600 to 4000.

      I seem to remember there was one other feature, though more software than hardware.
      Something like Synergy, where you can automatically jump from one device to another by mousing to the edge of the screen.

      I'm using the MX Master, I haven't taken notice exactly how long the battery lasts, but I don't feel I'm constantly recharging it. Long enough between to not remember when I last charged it.

      For me I'm happy enough with it, I wouldn't go out and upgrade but when this one dies, would get a 2S to replace it.

      One thing I didn't realise I'd like when I started using it is the auto ratchet to hyper scroll feature. Miss it now when using a different mouse.

    Does this one suffer the same bluetooth dropout issues as the first series? If so, I would seriously consider upgrading and regifting my series one to someone else. Drives me crazy.

    Great unit. I have one of these for work and far more reliable than the original Master in that the scroll wheel is still working months later.

    Nice, I have a $50 Harvey Norman voucher so will price match.

  •  

    Kinda disappointed with my MX Master 2s. The scrollwheel is fairly.. odd. I don't know why they made it so loud or so tactile. I wish it wasn't just two settings: Infinite or Harsh.

    I feel like it's going to break really easy with that "scroll stopper".
