The Logitech M590 has been the mouse that has accompanied me for a couple of years, before being replaced by the Logitech MX Master 3 as the primary mouse. My needs have changed. While before I prioritized mobility, a mouse that was small and comfortable to carry in my travel backpack, now I prefer something more robust, more focused on desktop use. However, it still seems to me a mouse with a good value for money and one of the best options if you move a lot.

Logitech M590 design: small and comfortable

As I was telling you, I have been using the Logitech M590 for a couple of years and it was very comfortable to use, although it does not reach the level of the MX Master series. It has a tiny size (103 x 64 x 40 mm) and a weight of just 100 grams. In addition, its format rounded it allows the hand to wrap it in a very pleasant way. The finishes are also very pleasant to the touch. I feel like I’m repeating myself too much, but if I had to define this mouse with one word, it would be that: nice.

At the top it has two buttons for the index and middle fingers, with an incredibly quiet “click” a button to switch between devices and a micro-precision scroll wheel that allows you to move at high speed on the page you are on. Also, on the thumb side, it has two buttons more preconfigured to move forward or backward on web pages, but you can configure them for other uses from the Logitech Options desktop app. Also from here you can change the speed of the pointer and some more details. On the other hand, at the bottom you have the on / off button and a drawer for the battery and USB receiver.

It is available in three colors: graphite, gray and red.

What advantages does this mouse offer?

In addition to offering a smooth and fluid ride (up to 1,000 dpi) and power customize buttons, the highlight without a doubt about this mouse is how incredibly silent What is it. If you work together it is something that will be appreciated, but also if you work alone. If you can avoid noise, why not do it?

Another very, very interesting detail of the Logitech M590 Multi-Device Silent It is precisely this data that we already find in its name: multi-device or multi-device. You can pair it to two devices at once and switch between one and the other simply by clicking on the button that is located on the front, under the scroll wheel. But, also, thanks to technology Logitech flow you can work on these two computers at the same time, transferring files from one to the other, photographs or even text. Copy on one of the computers and paste on the other, using the same mouse and nothing else.

Regarding autonomy, this may be a point against for some and is that need batteries, It does not offer the option to charge it, although you can always use rechargeable batteries so that they do a similar function and do not pollute the environment so much. In any case, consumption is very low, uses only one AA battery and with intensive use (about twelve hours a day, from Monday to Friday) it has lasted me around a year and a half. It has a charge indicator that alerts you before it runs out, turning red, so you know that you have to change it or recharge the battery.

It is compatible with Windows and Mac. We miss Linux in this section. Keep in mind that it includes a USB receiver so that you can use it on computers that do not have Bluetooth as standard, something that is always appreciated. This receiver can be stored inside the mouse itself, in the

Availability and price of the Logitech M590

In short, I would recommend the Logitech M590 Multi-Device Silent. if you are looking for a comfortable mouse with an ideal size for mobility. Logi peripherals are always a guarantee of quality and in this case it does not disappoint. Its value for money is quite good and both its speed and its precision are satisfactory. On the contrary, I would not recommend it if you spend many hours on the computer, in a fixed place. You may be more interested in looking at other slightly more expensive options but with better ergonomics, such as those of the MX Master series, for example, the Logitech MX Master 2S.

For all this, we grant you the GizAward gold.
