Compact mouse exceeds expectations on many levels.

For many years I’ve used a compact wireless mouse. Most recently, it was the MX Anywhere 2S by Logitech, but before that it was a very simple portable wireless mouse. Ever since I graduated high school, my main computer has been a laptop and the small wireless mouses just make the most sense for me. I know many people might feel that they are too small but I’ve not had any issues with my hands cramping up or any other size-related problems.

The MX Anywhere 2S was originally released in 2015 and the 3S model, which this review is about, was launched just this year (2023) in May. I don’t remember when I originally got the 2S but I’ve gotten many good years out of it and it still works like a champ. That said, I was thrilled to learn about the 3S model being released and even more excited to be able to finally get my hands on it.
