Logitech Lift Mouse: One minute review 

Logitech Lift Mouse: One minute review

The Logitech Lift mouse is an ergonomic mouse designed to fit seamlessly into your Apple setup. And it’s got a charming seashell-esque look, which I quite like. 

Many ergonomic mice can look really intimidating and even a bit bewildering, but with the Logitech Lift I faced my fears of odd-looking mice and came out wondering why I had never tried one out before.  Obviously one of the first worries is how exactly are you supposed to hold this thing if you’re a novice like me, but from first touch it’s very easy to adjust and you almost forget the slightly different grip. 

The simplicity of the design aids in the adjustment. The Logitech Lift mouse has six buttons available for customization. Out of the box are the usual left and right click, back and forward buttons on the left of the mouse, and a middle click button. The mouse is best suited to small to medium hands, which does impact its user versatility a little bit.

The Logitech Lift is definitely one of the best mice to ever get aggressively clicked and dragged around across my desk. Its unique aesthetic brightens up my workspace, and the battery life and connectivity across devices make it the only mouse you’ll need on your desk.

Price and Availability

The Logitech Lift mouse is available from the Logitech store for the same price across regions, around $70 USD(around £62/AU$107). We reckon this is a fair price for the mouse and lines up with the general ethos Logitech espouses around making their products affordable. 

This will definitely be one of the cheaper mice for PCs and Macs that you’ll find. The Magic Mouse 2 from Apple will run you $79 for essentially the same thing, only less user-friendly than the Logitech Lift. Unlike the Magic Mouse, the Lift offers a truly wireless experience as it utilizes a single AA battery that promises 24 months of use on a single battery.  This is obviously far more convenient than having to put your mouse upside down and out of commission to charge it. A quick battery swap and you’re good to go!

Design

The 57-degree lift on the Logitech Lift (get it?)  is designed to take the strain off your wrist and force your hand into an almost handshake position, straightening out your arm and overall posture. It does feel a bit odd at first, particularly if you are very used to a traditional mouse and spend all day using one, but the transition is not as awkward as you might think. Within an hour of using the mouse, you kind of forget it’s not the one you normally use, which is neat for those of us that absolutely hate change but want less painful wrists.

A design element that proved to be super useful in the office is the ability to switch between devices with relative ease.  Once the LogiOptions+ software is installed on each desired device, you can swap between them with the press of a button on the underside of the mouse. We do wish the button for this was not on the underside and could be assigned to one of the other six customizable buttons, but it’s not a major operation and it does only take a few seconds to cycle through your devices. 

There’s a plethora of options you can choose from when it comes to personalizing your mouse buttons in LogiOptions+, from screen snippet tools to switching displays if you have more than one, undo and redo, cut and paste, etc. This list is long and full of useful little tools for all kinds of work, be it creative, business, or personal projects. You can also set specific commands for most common workplace apps like Microsoft Word, Google Chrome, and more.

There are so many good things to say about this little mouse, though that is not to say it is without flaws. As near perfect as the Logitech Lift may be, all things have their faults. I found my pinky finger dragging across the desk when not making a  conscious effort to avoid doing so, and while that might not be overtly disruptive on screen it can be a bit annoying once you clock on how often it happens.

The soft textured grip that gives the mouse its seashell look doesn’t really add much grip and could be refined to keep your hand in place (thus preventing your pinky from being dragged around).

According to Logitech, 54% of this product is made with post-consumer recycled plastic, which is always a plus when it comes to creating and maintaining a sustainable work environment. The packaging it comes in is recyclable as well – something that is becoming increasingly common for tech products.

Performance

(Image credit: Future)Incredible battery life Adjustable DPI Almost silent clicking 

The mouse is a one-handed productivity machine, and performs as such. With one or two clicks you can do so much more than what can be done with a  traditional mouse. The  Logitech Lift uses advanced optical Tracking technology that tracks movement with just the right amount of sensitivity. 

The mouse has a base of 400 dpi that can be increased to 4000 dpi in 100 dpi increments. It would be quite unlikely for the average person to have to crank the DPI much higher than the set standard right out of the box, but this may lean the Lift being a decent stand-in for a gaming mouse if you’re on a budget or after something a bit more ergonomic.

The battery life promise is an astounding two years, and while we obviously cannot verify this ourselves (unless you’d like to check back in with us in 2024), the battery has not dipped under 100% since being used constantly during the workday for a good few days.

There is never a glitch or delay when using the mouse across screens or devices, and the mouse does become an extension of your hand as the day progresses. The clicks are satisfying but quiet. As we were using the mouse we did note that it would definitely not work very well for anyone with above average hand size, which is a bummer. 

Performance: 4/5
