    Decent mouse, glaring issues.

    I've had this mouse for about 3-4 months with some issues. Firsst the good, I've had no problems setting it up and using it with my computer, the mouse is responsive and both left and right buttons work as they should. Easy to hold and manipulate and for basic tasks it been fine. If you just need a basic mouse, this is an alright choice. That said, the mouse wheel is a mess. It was a little difficult to scroll out of the box and 3 months later its only gotten worse. The mouse wheel is a hassle to use even scrolling down this web-page. It requires so much force to move the wheel that trying to scroll frequently triggers the middle click or the dpi button beneath the wheel frequently. This can be incredibly frustrating when try to quickly scroll through from documents to in-game weapon wheels. And trying to just middle click also takes far more effort than it should. On top of that the side buttons have also become finicky. I don't know how the buttons are designed but even when held down, they will depress on their own. So if you use them as a push-to-talk toggle expect your mic to randomly cut in and out even when firmly holding it down. It can be difficult just trying to get a single sentence across. Overall, if you need this for anything other than M1 and M2 I'd recommend looking somewhere else. And if you only need a 2 button mouse, there are probably cheaper options.

    Not what I expected

    This was my first introduction to gaming mice. I was disappointed. First off, I must have skipped over the part where you actually NEED to install the Logitech software to map the extra buttons - they can't actually be assigned using the default drivers. Two games I played (Guild Wars 2 and Minecraft) would not let me assign Mouse button 4, 5, or 6 to an action in the game directly. You have to actually use the Logitech software to bind a button to a hotkey using profiles. I bought this mouse so I could use the extra buttons directly, not use another program to assign hotkey bindings which take up a keyboard key instead of the actual mouse button. Wasn't a big fan of the mouse turning into a disco ball when you plug it in - fortunately this can be disabled with the Logitech software. The extra DPI button is located just below the scroll wheel, and is a pain if you accidentally hit it during game play - your mouse cursor will slow down or speed up depending on what the software has been set to. The two side buttons are by default mapped to being forward and backward when browsing web sites, it's easy to accidentally hit one of them while entering form data - making me enter the data again. I would not recommend this mouse to anyone I know because it didn't fulfill my needs. I am using a Windows 7 gaming laptop.

    The only positives I can list for this mouse is that it’s comfortable in the hand. My negatives would be that you can’t turn of the led lighting and that it just cycles between red, green, and blue you can’t set it to static or adjust the brightness. The DPI is also pretty low when compared to most gaming mice and will struggle for 1080p much less 4K screens/ monitors. I would suggest getting an off brand from amazon at this price point because you can often get a more superior product.

    For what I paid I guess it did what it was made to do, be a mouse. The issue i had with it was that you couldn't turn of the light color changes, so in the middle of the night it would just light up the room when the computer did an update. also, the speed adjustment button is too prominent on the top. while using the mouse I tend to bump the button, sending the pointer into a frenzy or a slow turtle like crawl, which is frustrating in the middle of a game.

    Ok mouse, too wide and slick for me.

    I guess I have smaller hands - hard to grip - slick so can't pick up easy. Buttons are really easy to click so you will accidentally click while trying to re-position. Bought it for PC gaming - specifically PUBG, but was pretty much unusable because you have to reposition your mouse so much and I accidentally clicked and fired and then got headshot.

    I used this purchase to replace a mouse that had failed. While the G203 worked well at the beginning, it began to fail. I had to tug on the cord to make it work again. Then, one day, it just stopped responding.

    This mouse has a fast response time. However gaming for long periods is quite uncomfortable. I am returning this mouse and replacing with a different brand altogether.
