Best mouse for graphic design in 2020

Graphic designers tend to work for long hours in a day. And the most useful device to their arsenal is a mouse. Here we list three best mouse for graphic design work in 2020.

Logitech MX Master 3

1. Logitech MX Master 3

Logitech MX Master 3 is the latest product in the MX Master series. It comes with Logitech’s Darkfield™ Tracking which is very precise and can work on any surface. It has 7 buttons and 4000dpi sensor resolution and is specifically designed for professionals. Since graphic designers work for long hours, it sits comfortable under the hand because of its ergonomically design and doesn’t cause any strain.

This model comes with USB-C quick charging and Logitech claims that it gives 70 days of use on full charge. Though the size of the mouse is big but it works fine for someone with small hands. Since it’s a cordless mouse, we don’t recommend it for hardcore gaming.

Logitech MX Master 3 also comes with a software in which you can customize different keys. It works well with Windows as well as Mac OS.

Pros:

  • 4000dpi Accuracy
  • Ergonomically designed
  • Works on any surface
  • Customizable keys

Cons:

  • Size may be big for some users
  • Expensive
Currently Logitech MX Master 3 is unavailable in India. However, you can still buy the Logitech MX Master 2S which is nearly as good as the new generation model.
