I haven't noticed any degradation in my MX but it hasn't been used all that much either. I've had it since it first came out and it still holds a charge very well. The 30 or 40 day battery life they claim is true and even longer if just sitting there idle for many days. It will sit in a room for 2 weeks without being touched and I'll go in there to check on it and it's still at 2 of 3 bars after that long. It's a top notch mouse, I just can't get over the lag. Others may not notice it, but it drives me crazy.

I wish they'd come up with some tech to minimize if not eliminate(effectively, as there is no way to completely get rid of it on a wireless connection) lag in wireless mice. That is always a game breaker for me.
I grabbed a G900 last night and played about 4 hours of R6 Siege followed by 3 of the BF1 beta, didn't notice any lag at all over my Zowie ZA13 or Mionix Avior, course the G900 is also more than 2x the price of the MX Master and I can still feel a sore spot in my wallet
Maybe it can and has been reduced significantly on your mouse but mouse lag on a wireless connection is always going to be there. Enough lag to perceive it, maybe not. They may have reached that now. Or you may not be as sensitive to the lag as me. I'm very picky when it comes to lag on any device. I'm one of the unlucky persons that notice micro stutter when others don't on the same configuration and same may go for mice as well. Either way, I'm glad you don't have any issues and I may try out a G900 just to test it. I'd love to find a good cordless that I don't feel any lag in. I had a G500 corded mouse and before that another, older corded Logitech M series and I absolutely loved them both. I still have the G500 but the middle mouse button sticks now after dropping it a couple times from the desk to hardwood floor. I'll look into the G900 and try it out though. Thanks for the tip.
