IFA: Logitech offers greater multi system support and quieter clicking with new computer mouse range
Logitech is releasing two ‘silent’ computer mice and another that lets users switch between multiple devices and operating systems.
The M270 Triathlon Mouse connects to a Windows, Mac, Chrome or Linux machine using Logitech’s unifying adaptor or Bluetooth and switches between three devices using a series of buttons on the side.
Bundled software helps manage devices and it is claimed the mouse can run for up to two years with two AA batteries. It costs £59.99 and is available immediately.
“Eighty-five percent of people no longer use a single platform or device for their work,” said Anatoliy Polyanker, global portfolio and brand director at Logitech, at IFA in Berlin. “We designed the M720 Triathlon to address this multi-device proliferation and help boost productivity so people can easily switch between screens and power straight through their to-do list.”
Noisy clickers could also be a thing of the past with the launch of the M330 Silent Plus and M220 Silent. Logitech claims both offer the traditional ‘clicking’ sensation but with 90 percent less noise than conventional accessories. A ‘hidden’ nano receiver supports connections of up to 33 feet away.
The difference between the £29.99 M330 and the £19.99 M220 is that the former has a longer battery life and soft grips for a right hand users, whereas the latter is more portable and has an ambidextrous design.
Both are available in October.
“We live in a social world, whether you work in a shared space or at home, but sometimes silence really is golden,” added Polyanker. “Our engineers studied the sources of noise made by a computer mouse and created ways to reduce the decibel level without sacrificing quality.”
