The CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED joins CHERRY's portfolio as the new flagship, combining timeless design with state-of-the-art technology. An elegant metal surface made of brushed aluminum conveys the highest quality workmanship, and the rubber pads with trendy Voronoi cell structure on both sides of the mouse ensure a good grip. The MW 8 ADVANCED is rounded off by its comfortable shape, which fits the hand perfectly.

Cherry says that the MW 8 ADVANCED joins their mouse range as a top model, as the high-precision PixArt "track-on-glass" sensor with optical scanning works on all surfaces, including glass. This allows the mouse to be used without a mouse pad, pretty cool for those who are on the go. The sensor resolution can be adjusted in four steps between 600, 1000, 1600, and 3200 DPI, making the MW 8 ADVANCED suitable for use with 4K monitors.

Other highlights of the MW 8 ADVANCED are its connectivity options. Users can simply connect the mouse to a compatible system using the built-in Bluetooth 4.0 functionality, or alternatively, use the supplied USB receiver to establish a 2.4 GHz wireless connection secured with AES encryption. Switching between the two modes is done by sliding the switch at the bottom of the mouse into the desired position. Using this feature, users can connect the MW 8 ADVANCED with a notebook and desktop PC at the same time, quickly switching between the two at the slide of a button.

The integrated Lithium battery with a generous capacity of 550 mAh ensures a long service life. Depending on the usage profile, one charge will last up to 70 days. A two-color status LED provides information about the battery charge as well as the selected resolution and the connection to the PC. The wireless mouse is charged via the included USB cable, and remains usable during charging to enable high productivity without interruptions.

Cherry also names its higher end features like a durable mouse wheel with optical scanning, a magnetic lock on the USB receiver to keep it in place, as well as a transport bag. All in all this mouse seems like its a pretty decent option for those on the go but not revolutionary in any way.

Pricing and Availability

The Cherry MW8 Advanced is expected to be available at the end of September for a suggested retail price of  €50 / $60 / £44 at all major e-tailors
