Logitech Launches MX Ergo Trackball Mouse

Logitech is most well-known for its range of PC peripherals, and in particular keyboards and mice. But in recent years, the focus has been on offering standard keyboard and mouse combos, or integrating a trackpad into a keyboard. Do you remember the last trackball mouse Logitech released? Probably not, because it was over seven years ago.

That isn't the case any longer, though, as Logitech decided it's time for a new trackball mouse. It's called the MX Ergo, and it comes with a host of new features taking us well beyond what the company delivered back in 2010.

Logitech claims that the MX Ergo delivers 20 percent less muscular strain compared to a regular mouse. That's thanks to the integration of an adjustable hinge allowing you to angle the mouse between zero and 20 degrees to become more comfortable. Comfort is also enhanced by the shape of the mouse and the soft rubber finish.

Other features of note include a precision mode button allowing for the adjustment of cursor speed and sensitivity. Even though there's a trackball, the scroll wheel continues to offer the now standard features of also acting as a button and allowing horizontal scrolling.

The MX Ergo is a USB rechargeable mouse, with Logitech claiming a one minute charge gives you all day use. Allow it to fully charge and you'll get four months of life out of the battery.

Finally, there's some novel connectivity features. Typically you'll use a wireless Logitech device with either a unifying USB dongle or Bluetooth. For the MX Ergo, you can take advantage of Logitech Easy-Switch allowing a connection to two devices in parallel. Alternatively, there's Logitech Flow, which allows you to pair with two computers at the same time.

The MX Ergo is available direct from Logitech for $99.99.
