    Best Mouse I Have Ever Used

    I have medium-large hands (18.5cm) and this mouse is the perfect size and shape for my hands! It features one of the best optical sensors you can find in a mouse the Pixart PMW 3366 that is super accurate and gives that 1:1 feel when using the mouse. In games, I cannot make it lose track or spin out, even while doing the tilt-slam test. The mouse is rated to 12,000 dpi/cpi but the average person will not use more than 2000 dpi/cpi. It should be noted that this particular sensor can only track 2,100 dots per inch before it begins to subdivide the dots/pixels. Although Logitech handles the subdivision extremely well, subdividing the pixels theoretically introduces more room for error in the tracking. Other than that, I highly recommend this mouse! However, if you have small hands, it may not fit very well. This is a larger mouse and smaller hands may have issues with accuracy and control. I'm not saying it's impossible but just saying that it's something to consider. Although the Omron switches used for the left and right click are really good, they are built to be sensitive. Occasionally, if I'm in a intense battle, I have the tendency to slam the mouse down a little harder than normal when I reposition the mouse. Usually I rest my fingers on the right/left mouse buttons and when I slam the mouse down, the mouse may register a left or right click. This is most likely due to my technique. This is reproducible on just about every single mouse (gaming or not) that I have used, but some mice do it more easily than others. the Logitech G403 Prodigy is one of the easiest to do this on. But this is a gaming mouse, and all of the buttons are easy to click, tactile and register instantaneously thanks to the 1000hz polling rate. Pros: -Comfortable shape -Smooth rubber on sides to aid in grip -On board memory for gaming on different computers -Automatic Application based Profile Switching (While not using on-board memory) -16.8 million colors -Adjustable DPI from 200-12,000 in steps of 50 -Logitech Gaming Software: Lightweight (Also provides an option to monitor system stats via Arx) -Finger grooves on M1 and M2 -5 DPI settings per profile cycle-able via DPI button -1000hz polling rate (no input lag) -Top sensor (Pixart PMW 3366) -10g weight included if you want (I recommend keeping the weight in for better mouse balance) -Logitech packaging is the best, the mouse cable is wrapped around as opposed to folded and then tied up (no kinks vs kinks) Cons: -Sensitive Buttons (For some) -No dedicated side scroll (can be mitigated using macros)

    I use this mouse for MMORPG and FPS games as well as everyday productivity. No, it does not have a gazillion buttons and macros but it is a very effective tool and highly accurate. The RGB is a cool feature and not in your face gaudy. The software is intuitive and easy to use, you can assign macros as well as fully adjust the RGB function / even off. The scroll wheel is absolutely perfect, smooth with proper feel to stepping without being to tight or loose. Button clicks are firm and responsive without being to clicky or mushy. There is absolutely no rattle and let's face it this has one of the best sensors hands down (the same as in the G502). It has a braided cable that is a nice tight weave and adds to the look. No added drag that I have noticed with the braided on this one versus the non-braided cable I have on other mice. It has a very good feel and grip. You could go for a little flashier, or adjustable but honestly for medium to large hands I find this to be one of the most comfortable mice I have ever used. It was between this and the Razer Death Adder and I am glad I chose this and saved some cash. When I bought this it was on sale for under $45. For the price this mouse is very hard to beat, and I am very satisfied that I added it to my gaming arsenal... Thanks for reading, hope this was helpful.

    One of the best wired mouse purchases you can make

    Do you really NEED a cordless mouse? Really? Is your mouse ever more than two feet from your keyboard? These are questions I was asking myself before purchasing this mouse. I needed a new mouse for my late 2015 iMac 27". The include "magic mouse" was an ergonomic nightmare. Sure, it looked great, but hours of use revealed it's ergonomic shortcomings. And, I never really benefited from the wireless aspect of the mouse. I've never had a bad experience with a Logitech device in the past, so I immediately turned to them for a new mouse for that iMac. The transformation has been incredible. I have been using this mouse for just about one month now, and using the iMac is now much more enjoyable. The cursor is super accurate and predictable. The report rate is hands-down better than a wireless mouse. I enjoy the ability to switch between DPI resolution at the touch of a button. I can work in a photo editor with extreme precision, then switch to gaming without skipping a beat. Obviously, the iMac is not a heavy gaming computer, but I am considering swapping it with the ancient (but still very good) Logitech MX-518 currently on my Win10 gaming rig. I am THAT impressed. Highly recommended for a DESKTOP computer. For a laptop, you may want to look at some of the wireless offerings. In the laptop world, fewer cords is definitely better, but look for a high report rate.

    This mouse may not look as unique as the G502 or other Razer mice, but don't let the understated looks fool you. Pros: The G403 tracks flawlessly and is so very smooth. So much better than my current Razer Mamba. This may be due to the difference in Optical vs Laser sensor, but whatever the case, I noticed a big difference. The mouse buttons and LED colors can be customized in the Logitech software, which I found much more easier to use, and much more stable than the Razer synapse software, I currently have. Cons: While the wheel has a much better scroll feeling than the rickety G502, the wheel button press does take a decent amount of pressure to activate, which can be cumbersome if used frequently and for gaming. I feel my Razer Mamba has the best scroll press of the bunch, even though it falls behind in other categories. Unfortunately my hand did not fit this mouse, and as much as I loved it, I sadly had to return it. While I don't like the sharp design of the G502 as much, it tracks perfectly as well, and fits my hand much better. Conclusion: As with all mice, I strongly recommend evaluating in person, as everyone's hands are unique and the ergonomics are very different person to person, and depends on your unique grip. This mouse tracks perfectly, is solidly built, and if it fits your hand, is a dream to use!

    My old Logitech mouse lasted 8 years so of course I've got brand loyalty based on past experience but that didn't stop me from looking. In the 8 years, the "science" of buying a mouse has gone from cave man to lunar explorer. Tons of videos on you tube. Measure the length and width of your hand ... multiply by 60% against the dimensions of the mouse ... are you a palm, claw, modified claw, modified palm ... my head was spinning. And then there are the sensors ... laser optical ... which generation of optical. How about braided or unbraided wire ... wire or wireless. Everybody's got an opinion and then some. So I went for feel and comfort. What feels right versus what some reviewer thinks. I like this mouse and paired it with a G-810 keyboard. They share the software and the lighting effects work in unison, if you want. Classy ... fast response ... feels good for my Palm grip. There was an issue with the scroll wheel rattling a while ago. They fixed that and you want a serial number after 164L2........ oh yeah, don't forget to torture yourself with mouse pads and mouse bungees decisions, while you're at it.

    Great minimalist mouse for claw grip gamers!

    I use a claw grip when I game. Most mice I try don't have a high enough arch for my palm to rest in so I always feel like I don't have full control of the mouse. This mouse fit my grip perfectly. I also love how this mouse doesn't have all the weird thumb rests and extra crazy extendable grips. As for build quality this thing is awesome. the changeable weight is nice, It has a great optical sensor and the perfect amount of weight on the clicks, MINUS the middle mouse button. If you use your mouse with index finger on the left click, middle finger on the wheel, and ring on the right button, the mouse wheel is way to heavy of a click and its almost impossible to click it without also clicking left click. I don't use my middle finger to click mouse wheel so it is not an issue for me but for high action FPS players who do for quick scopes or what have you, you could run into an issue. Overall the mouse is very minimalist and high quality and works for my claw grip. For me personally its 5 stars in the way I use it. But other gamers may have an issue with that middle mouse button, which is why I gave it a 4.

    Excellent all purpose mouse

    I'm not a gamer, but I wanted a very comfortable mouse, and this was the one. I tried a number of them in the Best Buy showroom and settled on this one primarily because of how it felt in my hand. This is one of those things that you can't tell from looking at a photo. It feels like a quality piece of hardware. This time, I wanted a wired mouse. The wireless mice are OK, but sometimes they can be jittery for no apparent reason. It has a long cord, which is good, because I route all cables through the back of my desk and around to my mid-tower PC. It has a cycling LED, which is fine. It also came with a small weight that is inserted into the base. This is really a smart idea, because it adds just enough weight. The weight is magnetic so it snaps into place. The one adjustment that I have had to make is that the back and forward buttons sit a bit lower than expected, because I accidentally hit them a number of times. Overall, no complaints. I love the feel of this mouse.

    Grip: Hybrid claw and palm grip, closer to claw. Hand Size: 16 cm I HIGHLY recommend this mouse. I tried the Steelseries Rival 300 and the Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex, and Logitech G403 at the same time and the G403 blew the other two out of the water. G303: Reviews warned about hit or miss possible hand cramps and ergonomic unfriendliness of the G303 and it rang true for me. Even after getting used to the shape, I found it still gave me hand cramps after 2 hours of use. Rival 300: definitely had a much better ergonomic shape but it was a bit too small for my liking-made the bottom of my palm drag against my mouse pad. G403: Finally a Logitech mouse with a *normal* build and shape. The size was perfect for my hand size and grip style. It moves quickly with multiple settings and colors to choose from. Sensors are quick and the mouse comes with attachable weights which actually makes a huge difference. I HIGHLY recommend this mouse.
