So, my Magic Mouse is on the fritz. The design has always been a PITA for me in terms of video editing and I'm looking to get a nice, new mouse. I'm eyeing the Logitech MX Master, but I wanted to know what other users recommend before I pull the trigger tomorrow.

Thanks everyone!

I've never found the perfect mouse for me. I've been using a MM for many years and it's the best so far. I have 2 Logitech MXs in a drawer. Definitely like the way it fit my hand, but didn't like the dongle, and it had inconsistently squirrely behavior in some apps.

I use a combination of mouse (no frills wireless Logitech), a Wacom tablet, and the Magic Trackpad when editing. Trackpad is great for scrubbing, quick zoom in zoom out of timeline, mouse for fine point file / asset selection and the Wacom for manipulating clips.

I just kind of evolved into using those elements from my graphic design setup, but each input has an advantage to my workflow.

i use a microsoft sculpt bluetooth mouse (because it was the only bluetooth mouse in the store) on my laptop and a cheap logitech wired mouse on my workstation. i prefer the scroll wheel with clicks, so i can use it prcicesly (zoom in 5 clicks in after effects, for example).

other than that, both work well (the microsoft sometimes loses the connection, but only while you are not using it). i'd prefer a wired solution to something with a dongle.

MX Master has both Bluetooth and a dongle. The option to customize the buttons on a per app basis is nice. The wheel can switch between smooth scrolling and clicking and has a fast scroll feature. Overall very nice.

I use the logitech MX Master mouse and love it. The thumb wheel scrolls the timeline left and right which makes it super convenient for long edits. Also its very comfortable. Well worth the price
