A few years ago, Logitech launched a simplified version of the office mechanical keyboard K840 based on the G413 series of gaming keyboards. Obviously, this strategy should be quite successful. Logitech released two new thin mechanical keyboards MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini earlier, which somewhat quoted the basic concept of the G913 thin gaming mechanical keyboard, and then put it on the MX Keys family. The understated office design is meant to be.
The MX Mechanical is a full-size keyboard that includes a full number pad and four custom keys on the top right. Compared to MX Keys, MX Mechanical can clearly see the influence from the G913, including the design of the exposed key shaft, as well as the more traditional square keys. The standard configuration of MX Mechanical is Kahli’s short brown shaft, and in certain markets, the green shaft with a sense of paragraph and the red shaft with a linear sense of no paragraph will be launched.
The MX Mechanical Mini has a 75% keyboard design, and like last year’s Pop Keys, there are five additional editing keys on the far right of the main keyboard area. Both the MX Mechanical and Mechanical Mini are wireless keyboards with Bolt receivers that can be paired with up to three devices and charged via USB-C. Both keyboards also have white backlighting, which can last up to 15 days with the backlight on and up to 10 months with the backlight off.
In addition to the two keyboards, Logitech also announced a small update to the MX Master 3S mouse. It’s basically unchanged in appearance, but the photoreceptor has been increased from 4,000 DPI to 8,000 DPI, and Bolt wireless technology has also been adopted. The MX Mechanical US price is US$169.99, the MX Mechanical Mini is US$149.99, and the MX Master 3S mouse is US$99. All three have been listed in the United States, and if they are local, they will have to wait for Logitech to release them.
