Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mouse Review

Logitech is a Swiss company with a long history of producing some of the best accessories for the PC. They started with the computer mouse, and naturally diversified into keyboards, webcams and speakers. Today, we will take a look at the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 wireless mouse, which was specially developed for mobile users.

Don’t mistaken the term “developed for mobile users” to mean a teeny-weeny or flattened mouse with wireless capabilities. The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is designed to address the critical needs of the mobile user, namely the ability to track on any surface, dual connectivity via Bluetooth and wireless receiver, and the ability to switch between 3 different devices. Let’s take a look!


Unboxing The Logitech MX Anywhere 2

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes in a very nice cardboard retail box, with its key features listed on the box in four languages. The system requirements (Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.8 or better for WiFi and Windows 8 or Mac OS X 10.10 or better for Bluetooth) are listed on the right side. On the left is a list of the box’s contents.

The box actually flips open in the front to reveal the MX Anywhere 2 mouse and its Pico Unifying receiver behind a clear plastic window. This allows you to gauge how well the mouse will fit your hand before purchasing it. The inner side of the cover shows you the five simple steps to get the MX Anywhere 2 mouse to work with your devices in pictorial form.

Once you open up the box, you will find the following items :

    Why are you referring to 2.4GHz unifying receiver as wifi? Wifi is the popular name for IEEE 802.11(at least a,b,g,n,ac), which this mouse does not implement.
    On another note, I’m dissapointed with Logitech that after showing off this tech with this mouse and it’s bigger brother, MX Masters, they released their 3rd multi-device bluetooth keyboard without including support for unifying receiver. That would make the keyboard usable in emergency PC situations (i.e. your portable NUC/HDMI stick malfunctions and you need pre-boot keyboard, but you are 300km from home).

    this mouse remind me of Roccat Pyra with it’s recharging “wired “mode.

    Although Anywhere Mouse MX2 having plenty of interesting features, like dual wireless mode, gesture button, and convenient pairing up to 3 devices, I actually still prefer the 1st version which I’m using it now. The best feature of V1 is the sensor cover which double as on-off switch. It’s quite important for me as I always put my mouse in a heavily loaded laptop bag. It will help the sensor been damaged by others sharp thing on my bag.

    Logitech also retain the same size for V2, as this design is really comfortable to hold.
