    Logitech G703 Quick Features on the Product Integrated LIGHTSPEED wireless (2.4GHz) Advanced button tensioning Pro-graded PMW3366 sensor (200-12000 DPI) Customizable lighting and buttons Charging/data cable Works with new Logitech G POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System USB report rate: 1000 Hz (1ms) Main buttons: 50-million clicks (durability) Battery Life w/ Default Lighting = 24 hours, w/ No Lighting = 32 hours What's in the box? G703 wireless gaming mouse Plug and forget nano receiver USB Charging/data cable Optional receiver extension adapter Optional 10-gram weight Setup guide Important Safety, Compliance, Warranty Information sheet Setup/Testing/Conclusion I’m going to first start off with the packaging. This is a personal opinion as I am one of those consumers that thoroughly enjoy walking through an aisle and seeing really nice “thought out” packaging on a product I am looking to purchase. With the Logitech G703, I didn’t really get the WOW factor on the packaging. Being that I am a FPS gamer, I buy mouses pretty regularly. I’ve purchased Razer, Logitech, Microsoft, Thermaltake, SteelSeries, etc. in the past many times. The thing that hooks me when purchasing a mouse is of course the mouse itself. But it definitely helps when I pick up a mouse box and get the WOW factor when I haven’t even taken the mouse out of the box yet. But hey, as I said it's a personal opinion and what crossed my mind is that Logitech probably put more money into the mouse than the box itself. So here goes the setup, testing and final thoughts. Setting up the mouse was self explanatory. It was extremely simple to setup. One I set up the mouse, I went ahead and downloaded the Logitech Gaming Software. During the installation process, it gives you an option to download/install a program called OverWolf. OverWolf is basically a software that gives the gamer the capability of not having to “alt tab” to do things like browsing, instant message, etc… I personally didn’t download/install it but it's definitely a neat feature to look into if you’re deciding on purchasing the Logitech G703. Once I was all ready to go I went into the Logitech Gaming Software and tuned the mouse to my liking and changed the color(s) of the mouse. Logitech Gaming Software is definitely something I would recommend downloading because you can fine tune your mouse like buttons, colors, surface optimization, etc. So download it! I play one main FPS and that is Counter-Strike. I understand it’s an old game but it’s a really good FPS game and people still play it competitively. All I can say is… WOW. The Logitech G703 performs exceptionally well. Can you say… HEADSHOT! During my gaming session, my hand did not feel fatigued at all and the side grip texture definitely helps. I am a hybrid grip when it comes to gaming on a PC. There are people that are “claw grip” and some that are “palm grip”, hybrid just means you do a bit of both. By the way speaking about grip, if you’re a left handed user I want to sincerely apologize but the G703 will not work for you because it's for right handed users ONLY. This mouse resembles a lot of my most favorite mouse ever and that is the Microsoft Intellipoint mouse. I like the shape of the G703 and the way it performs. I tested DPI from 200 ~ 12000 and I did not experience any stutter or acceleration at all. Why you would need 12000 DPI still baffles me because even 3200 DPI is a lot for me. But some people may need 12000. When it comes to FPS games, I feel like the Logitech G703 delivers what Logitech promises.. If you’re looking to do a lot of key mapping/binding of keys, the G703 may not be the best mouse for you. This is only because it has a total of 6 programmable buttons. If you’re looking for a mouse with more buttons to program, you may want to look into the G903 from Logitech. It supports the same wireless charging technology G POWERPLAY. I did insert the optional weight and it does make a little difference but nothing drastic. I’ve owned the Logitech G502 and the Logitech G500 previously and enjoyed the feature of having more weights to fine tune the weight of the mouse to my liking. With the G703 you only have a single 10g weight to either put in or leave out. The cable that the G703 comes with is fantastic. I must say, Logitech has improved a lot on their cable game. When I used the G500 a while ago even though it had a braided cable, it wasn’t as flexible as the ones now. The braided cable that Logitech uses now is flexible yet durable and I really enjoy that. So with all these pros that I’ve been giving the Logitech G703, you’re probably wondering if there are any “issues” with the mouse. I hate to do it because I really like the G703 but the only con I ran into is the build quality of the mouse. For an MSRP of $99.99, I expect to get a mouse that is built around that price range. For the build quality of the mouse on the G703, I feel like it's the same quality as a mouse I would get for around $40.00. I’m sure the Logitech G703 “guts” are where the funds were put into as opposed to the “shell” of the mouse. But I just personally feel like it has a “cheap” build quality “feel”, a lot of plastic. I would’ve liked seeing maybe a more grippy texture on the top of the mouse as opposed to the smooth plastic. That is probably the only con I have with the G703. Besides that, it performed exceptionally well wired and wireless. At this time, I wouldn’t even mind dishing out another $99.99 for the G POWERPLAY. Its definitely a nice addition to add to the G703. Since the mouse performs as well via wireless as it does wired, that is why I personally feel like paying an additional $99.99 for the G POWERPLAY is worth it. This way, you never have to worry about plugging/unplugging the wire to charge the G703 because it’ll charge as you play. So there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Those are my thoughts with the G703. I’d definitely recommend it to a friend or family member. I work around a lot of people that are gamers and would not hesitate to recommend the G703. As I mentioned above, if you’re looking for a mouse that has more buttons to map for games like MMORPGs; I would look into the G903. All I can say is, great work Logitech and keep it up!

    A niche update with unseen potential

    Posted

    If you've owned the G403 mouse in the past, you can stop here. This mouse is a rehash with few minor changes. It has a new switch rated for 50 million clicks, as opposed to 20, and is compatible with the upcoming PowerPlay mat. They both use the PWM3366 sensor and have roughly the same battery life. If you already own the G403, there isn't a compelling reason to upgrade. For everyone else: Ergonomics ---------------- The G703 is a right-hand only mouse with a familiar design. It favors a palm grip for medium to large hands, though I noticed the palm rest is taller than what I'm used to. I'm coming from a G602 mouse which has a wide body with a low slope, so this took a little time to adjust. When in use though, it's quite comfortable. The body has a slight rubberized feel around the sides and the top has a smooth matte finish. The buttons are separate from the body and have a consistent, tactile feel to them. It doesn't go crazy with buttons, with left, right, middle, and two side buttons - all of which are fully programmable. Another button dedicated to switching between DPI presets sits under the scroll wheel. Performance ------------------ This mouse is easily the most accurate I've used. This is due to the PWM3366 optical sensor it employs for tracking. The software includes "surface tuning" to calibrate against whatever you're using, but I would consider that optional. The DPI range is bonkers, going from 200 to 12,000, with five customizable presets. On a dual-monitor setup, 2000 - 3000 is more than enough for me. I've tested on a few mouse-heavy games, and it feels spot on - no acceleration or smoothing. It shines as a gaming mouse, though it's not as well suited for productivity and it could use just a couple more programmable buttons to include a few more use cases where hotkeys or shortcuts make a difference. A full charge is stated to last up to 30 or so hours if all the RGB lighting is turned off, and that seems to be the case. The software also tracks your usage and what is affecting your battery life. The mouse comes with a braided charge cable that locks into micro USB port, and requires a few hours for a full charge. It can be used either in wireless or wired mode, and there doesn't seem to be a noticeable difference in performance. Features ------------------ The primary reason to buy this mouse over its predecessor the G403 hasn't yet arrived to the market, the Powerplay wireless charging mat. At this time, only the G703 and G903 are compatible with it, so if that's a desired feature, using any other wireless mouse will not yield any benefits. How well that technology works or if it is a boon to gaming has yet to be seen. The software is the star of the show in terms of features. It includes a ton of customization options that are pretty simple to use. Other, more advanced features, like autofire or macros aren't much more difficult to figure out. Summary ------------------ There's no getting around this specific mouse and its bigger brother the G903 are for a niche audience. Owners of the G403 in either wired or wireless variations don't have much reason to upgrade, and potential buyers not interested in buying the $100 companion Powerplay mat can save their money and buy a cheaper product. However, those who are interested in the upcoming wireless charging system can't go wrong here. The G703 is an excellent mouse for several, but not all, use cases. Anyone that needs a bevy of extra buttons, or dabbles in editing or production regularly may want to seek out something better tailored for those situations. Although, if your'e a gamer who values accuracy AND wireless performance above all else, this is your mouse.

    This mouse is so good that it has finally replaced my >10-yrs-old trusty Logitech MX1000 wireless laser mouse. I LOVE its white-and-black design that matches my computer case & keyboard, its lightness (adjustable with an included weight), in-hand feel, and the super-responsive and clickity buttons. I also really like the glowing LED lights on the wheel scroll and body sections of the mouse. With the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) installed, one can assign different colors and set different lighting rhythms. If all of that is too gimmicky for you, you can always just turn off the LED lighting entirely. I have mine setup to a "breathing" white LED pulse pattern. Installation is super simple and easy and I like its charging cable setup. One can either charge it with a phone charger using a microUSB cable or use the cable that comes inside the box. The benefit of charging the mouse with the included cable is that you can still use the mouse while it is being charged. And since the charging cable plugs into the front end of the mouse, the cable won't get in your way as you're using it. Brilliant! As for performance, there are no complaints. Used across different gaming genres (FPS, hack-and-slash), the mouse performs excellently and without any lags, delays, or stutters thanks to its ultra-high DPI options and fast connection to the connection dongle. To maximize the full potential of the G703, one needs to install the LGS software. With it, you can change around button assignments, create shortcuts and macros, and expand the number of key combinations and functions by using the G Shift function. Looking at and using the G703 is such a pleasure. I highly recommend it.

    Excellent wireless mouse

    Previously owning a Logitech G602 Proteus Spectrum mouse, I was very hesitant about wanting to upgrade to a wireless mouse given how they aren't usually as reliable as wired gaming mouses when it comes to absolute tracking and precision. However, the new G703 LIGHTSPEED wireless mouse from Logitech is destined to narrow that trust gap that grew from previous wireless mice I've owned. This mouse is incredibly light out of the box, and is quite surprising given how it has a built-in rechargeable battery, but thankfully there was a 10g weight that came with the packaging, allowing you to make it just a tad heavier and is something I'd recommend for most people to do. Installation and setup was a breeze and Logitech's software made it easy to customize the mice for my specific gaming needs. I do recommend you adjust the lighting effects in a way that achieves maximum battery life per charge, as having the LEDs on the "G" and the line on the scroll wheel rapidly change colors lowers the range from 29 hours to about 18 hours, which also hampers the lifespan of the battery over time. Adjust those settings to your best liking, but I'd prefer not to have to charge the mouse so frequently. And speaking of battery life, you rarely ever have to turn the mouse off when not in use. It has an excellent standby mode feature that in my tests does not drain any of it's juice whatsoever. Coming back from sleep the mouse instantly reconnects to the USB dongle and is ready for use. I do like the feel of the mouse, but will admit that it isn't perfect and may be a bit large for those with smaller hands; the body is coated with a soft material that makes it more comfortable to hold and move around compared to my previous G502 Proteus Spectrum, however I did like the slimmer profile of the latter better as it had a nice thumb rest that made it feel better to hold. I also miss being able to customize the scroll wheel's feel on the G502, which I cannot do on this G703 and am limited to notch scrolling. Whether the mouse will last Logi's 50 million clicks guarantee is something I can't speak up to now, as I've only had daily use with the G703 for two weeks into writing this review. Overall, the G703 is an excellent wireless gaming mouse with a long-lasting battery charge and a wide variety of specific configuration options that will meet the needs of every gamer.

    I because enamored with different mice ever since I upgraded my laptop to the 2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. For years, I've had a small Microsoft wireless mouse that I like to take with me when I work remotely. The only issue with it is that it's so small it causes some hand cramping when you use it for a very long time. So, I decided to research other wireless mice options since that one was too small for my needs. My search led me to this very stylish mouse -- the Logitech G703 Wireless Gaming Mouse. CONNECTIVITY The first feature I was looking for in a mouse was wireless connectivity. Since I have the newest MacBook Pro, the only ports on it are USB-C and I was really looking for Bluetooth as an option. Unfortunately, the G703 does not offer Bluetooth connectivity as a feature. The mouse is "wireless" through a USB receiver that you plug into your computer. I don't currently have a USB-A to USB-C adapter, but I do have a Thunderbolt 3 dock, which allows me to connect to various devices including USB devices. So, I plugged the extension cable into the USB port on the front of the dock and then plugged the receiver into the cable. This was suggested by the videos on the Logitech website. This connection did work alright but I experienced quite a bit of lag. I had to turn my mouse tracking speed up to 100% within my system settings in order to get the responsiveness I was hoping for. I also tried plugging the mouse into the dock directly using the provided charging cable. I got a little better response this way, but it still wasn't what I would consider a 'good' connection. In this respect the G703 was a disappointment. Now, users who have a standard USB connection may not have this same issue. It is something to note for USB-C connections though since many computers are turning to it for connectivity. PERFORMANCE & DESIGN Since I had some lag issues, I can't comment a lot on the performance. I did find the mouse easy to use and very comfortable. The shape of the device fits the hand very well and it looks great. When the mouse is powered on, the "G" on the mouse and the scroll wheel light up and cycle through many vibrant colors. Because the mouse is white (there is also a black version), the colors are that much brighter. I really like that it has a standard 6-button design and that it's completely programmable for gamers. For my uses, I was really just doing basic tasks and only used the left and right buttons and the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel seemed to be overly sensitive, but that could be because I had the tracking speed turned up so high. CONCLUSIONS I was actually pretty disappointed with the G703, but I believe some of my issues may have been because of my connectivity roadblocks. I think that with the right set-up, the G703 may be a really nice mouse. It just doesn't work for my purposes since it's not a true wireless mouse.

    Favorite Mouse for Mac OS

    Finding a great mouse for gaming on MacOS can be a challenge. The Logitech G703 with LIGHTSPEED is the fastest & the most accurate mouse I have ever experienced. Charge it, add the 10G weight if you choose, plug in the LIGHTSPEED receiver, snap the switch ON & you are connected! No drop outs, no loss of signal, no lag - EVER!! The confidence the G703 inspires by it's complete lack of any lag & it's high speed with total control led me to try it for all applications, not just gaming. My "daily driver" mouse is the Logitech MX Master 2S. I love the thumb rest on that mouse, and the little button behind the mouse wheel that removes the drag click and provides a weighted flywheel for high speed spinning. The high speed spinning is the only feature I miss on the G703. The photos show the G703 Gaming Mouse, the MX Master 2S & the Apple Magic Mouse 2 for size comparison. Even without loading the recommended Logitech software, you can control the DPI instantly on the G703 by the small button just behind the mouse wheel. It is amazing that this DPI change works out of the box perfectly with no software added on MacOS. The LED lighting on the body & the wheel is very cool. I love the feel of the rubber grips on the right and left sides of this mouse. The lightweight body feels feather weight, compared with the outstanding MX Master 2S. Snap the on / off switch & the mouse starts instantly, no connection delay or start-up lag. I plan to buy the Powerplay wireless charging system for this mouse, as soon as it is released (it can be preordered today). Never having to stop & charge the mouse plus the ability to change the mousepad surface from hard to soft is the "icing on the cake!". CONCLUSION: Logitech quotes 50 million click durability. This is a precision quality instrument & it feels like it. No lag, super fast, consistent, feather weight - you feel as one with this mouse. The Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Gaming Mouse earns my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

    This is my third or fourth Logitech gaming mouse. I've had Logitech wireless mice before, most recently the G700s wireless and G502 wired. I suppose the G703 should be an upgrade over the G700s (which is several years old) but it actually seems like a step backwards. Unfortunately, this mouse arrived broken; I was unable to use it in wireless mode. Logitech support said the mouse might have come unpaired from the receiver. That could make sense, but they also said there is no way to pair the mouse to a receiver so they are shipping me a new one. Bummer.. In all honesty, the G703 does not even seem like a gaming mouse. It looks and feels like a standard wireless mouse, except with a 'G' logo. It's the response rate that make it a gaming mouse and in my testing (over wired of course) it seems to be just as responsive if not more than my current mouse the G502. However, there's a lot about it that I don't like. Ergonomically, it feels awkward and does not have all of the contoured curves for your fingers of the gaming mice that I am used to. This makes it feel larger than it really is and less "premium". I like gaming mice to look like gaming mice, not something that I might see in a suit and tie office. It is also way too lightweight for my liking, even when adding the extra weight. I know the trend is to go as light as possible but I think at some point my hand actually gets more tired from pushing around something that is barely there. Finally, there is a lack of user customizable buttons. There are only 4 if you don't count left and right click. And If you want to change the DPI from the mouse itself that'll cost you another leaving you with just 3. Also you can only cycle through DPI settings, not go up and down. I typically use more buttons and the DPI up and down so this is a definite drawback for me. Pros: Powerplay Compatible (when available) Fast Response Rate (in wired mode) Wired or Wireless (if it works) Comes with extension cable for wireless receiver RGB Lighting Cons: Too light Not that many customizable buttons No battery indicator No switch to customize scroll Can't shift DPI up or down, only cycle All in all, this seems like a budget mouse with a premium gaming mouse price tag. If I really needed wireless and Powerplay I would consider trying the G903 to see if it improves upon the shortcomings of this mouse but the bottomline is that there are better mice that you can buy for your money.

    This mouse is really fantastic. In the short time I have had it, it's worked incredibly well. The DPI of up to 12,000 is insane and makes for rapid movements and pinpoint shooting is a breeze. I love the lighting on it. I kinda wish my G700v1 I use also had this. The Logitech software works perfect without any issue, this is also true on MacOS Sierra where I have been primarily using the mouse. The battery, although I wish it was removable, is incredible. Compared to the rechargable in my G700, this thing will last you a while. If you have the brightness of the mouse all the way up and you have it pulse rotating the RGB lit mousewheel and Logitech G logo, you will see about 12-16 hours. I keep mine about half brightness on a single color with a slow pulse with only the logo lit and I'm seeing around 26-32 hours on a full charge. I imagine you could get a whole work week out of the mouse with max polling and minimal brightness. You can turn off the lighting completely as well. You can also adjust it to where you can have just the logo, the mousewheel, or both on or off independently. I really like the cable they included as it's all braided and definitely gives a sense of quality. It also has the wireless dongle. It also has some sort of other rectangular dongle with a standard USB on one side and Micro USB on the other. I think this is so you can use the charger cable as an extension for the wireless dongle if your case is far away. My only real cons with this mouse, I wish it had more buttons. You get the Middle Mouse, Horizontal Scroll, 2 side buttons and the middle button below the wheel for DPI. All these can be configured through the Logitech SW. The other con I have is that the mouse picks up dust really well around the Teflon feet. I've also noticed the Teflon pad that's around the laser start to shift, not sure how long it will last before it comes off. I'm using it on a SteelSeries QCK+ mat, which my 5 year old G700 hasn't had an issue with. Oh before I forget, they also included a weight in the box. It add's a bit of heft to the mouse as well.

    A Very Good Gaming Mouse.

    Let me start by saying that I'm comparing this to my current mouse, which is an older Logitech G700s. Comfort wise, the G703 wins hands down. It is a very comfortable mouse, and tracks very well. Especially if your use Logitech's software. I allows you to tune the G703 to your gaming surface, and it also has presets for Logitech's own mouse pads. I used the G703 mouse to play a bit of Black Ops 3 today, and have somewhat mixed feelings on it. For starters, there are a lack of buttons. There are basically three programmable buttons, 4 if you don't need to change DPI in game. This may not be a big deal to anyone else but me, but I found the lack of left and right clicks on the scroll wheel a bit of a disappointment. On my G700s, I use them for being able to select and activate score streaks. Again, it's probably just me affected my this. A side note on the DPI button, you can change your DPI in game, but there's nothing on the G703 to tell what DPI profile you are on. I constantly change DPI profiles depending on what weapon I plan on using in game. Another thing that sort of bothered me was the placement of the sensor. It is almost directly in the center of the mouse, but on my G700s, It's placed about 1/3 from the front of the mouse, which makes movements easier compared to the G703 at the same DPI. Another issue I have is that the mouse feels light. It comes with a 10g weight, but even after adding that, the G703 feels too light for my liking. As far as a wireless mouse goes, this one is top notch. I didn't notice any lag, and the mouse performed flawlessly during matches, which is impressive. If I didn't already own a fantastic Logitech mouse, I probably wouldn't notice any of the things I wrote here, and I'm sure after I have a bit more time with the mouse, I'll have it tuned to exactly how I like it. Overall, it's a very good gaming mouse.

    I’ve been a heavy PC gamer for a good 20 years and I’ve had more mice than I want to count. I’m currently using this with my Acer Predator gaming laptop and I’m really impressed with this mouse. It’s fast, accurate and comfortable to use. I have another Logitech G500S gaming mouse I use with my desktop system and this one is very comparable. The removable weight is an added bonus, as I like a heavy mouse so I’m leaving it in, most mice are way to light for my tastes and gaming needs. The mouse wheel has an illuminated stripe running down the center, "first time I've had one like this", it's sort of neat, as you can easily see the wheel in a dark room. There's also an illuminated "G" logo on the palm rest area. Both of them can be controlled with the Logitech software, they can also be shut off if you prefer. And like the G500S you can control the DPI, this one with the small button just below the mouse wheel. I find this a very nice touch and you can also set the 4 presets the way you like it within the Logitech software. This one has a rechargeable battery and you have to remember to plug it in on occasion, at least you can plug it in and still use it while charging, I just try to remember to plug it in at night when going to bed. Haven’t had it long enough yet to see just how long the battery last yet though but the software shows it has around 25hrs of life left at 80%' I’ve tried this on a couple different mouse pads and they all seem to work equally well, even the cloth of our sofa works really well. If you are looking for a nice sleek gaming mouse you should be happy with this one. I've attached a picture with a few other Logitech mice I have for size comparison.

    Great Performance but Missing Features

    +Great Feel/Look +Excellent Performance +Completely Functional Wireless and Wired +Compatible With Logitech's Wireless Charging Mouse Pad -No Free Scroll, No Left/Right Scroll Click -App Required for Changing All Settings -Only One Weight Included Anyone looking for a great performing wireless mouse without spending a huge premium should consider the G703. While there are some missing features, the mouse's great look and excellent performance help overcome any shortcomings in the feature set. Likely the most important spec for anyone looking for a wireless gaming mouse is the wireless performance, and more specifically the lag. This mouse delivers better than any wireless mouse I've ever used; there is no discernible lag that I was able to notice. I did notice some tracking issues initially while using only the small dongle plugged into my computer, but Logitech has included an extender that plugs into the same cord as you use to charge, which allows you to maintain wireless operation while also ensuring you're limiting lag as much as possible by putting the receiver right by the mouse. The addition of Logitech's wireless charging/receiver pad would also greatly help performance, but at $100, I won't be getting one anytime soon. One of my favorite parts of this mouse, however, is how Logitech has made the mouse completely functional either wireless or wired. Lots of other mice I've had require that you place the mouse into a cradle to charge, which makes it convenient to charge and completely unusable when the mouse is dead; the G703 has a long charging cable (usable with the extender as mentioned above) and plugs into the front of the mouse, which essentially turns it into a wired mouse. Great design. The look and feel of this mouse is absolutely great. The aesthetic of this mouse is understated for the most part, but I really like the look, especially with the LED bar in the mouse wheel. The feel of the mouse in your hand is also awesome, one of the most comfortable I've felt. It doesn't have a wealth of buttons, which is a positive in my book; this may be an issue for anyone that is used to a huge array of customizable buttons. Also, the back/forward buttons on the side are well placed; out of the way so you don't accidentally click them (as I tend to do with other mice) but easily in range when you need them. One downside to the great hand feel of this mouse is that it's made for right handed people only, so any left-handers will need to look elsewhere. Additionally, while the streamlined button layout is a plus, they've decided to not include a free spin wheel (where you press the button and the mouse will free scroll), and they've also not included left and right clicks on the wheel. Finally, while the mouse has a mechanism for allowing different weights, they've only included a 10g plate. Overall, this is a great mouse, with a few minor missing features, that performs extremely well and is worth the money for anyone that requires the kind of wireless performance this thing can accommodate.

    Feels like a step back for the G700 series

    I love Logitech mice. Including this new G703, I now own 5 different pairs of Logitech mice. But this G703 feels like multiple steps backwards while taking one step forwards. Let me explain why. First off, this is the lightest Logitech mouse I now own—and that's WITH the optional weight added in. Sure, the material feels good in the hand, and it's certainly comfortable, but it doesn't come off as feeling...premium. The contours are smooth and very well crafted, but I simply can't get over how light and hollow it feels. The contours for your thumb and pinky are less concave, so the mouse feels larger in comparison to previous models like the G700s. I've never had issues regarding comfort for any of my Logitech mice. So at the very least, they didn't take a step backward in comfort, but the mouse feels more hollow compared to others I own. This is where I'm starting to notice Logitech's new vision for the G700 series. Logitech believes that gamers don't need more macros, so they've given you 2 thumb-accessible buttons instead of the 4 found on the previous generation. And while they were at it, they also took away the ability to shift your DPI profile up and down—instead, allowing you to press one button to cyclically shift profiles (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, etc). But here's where they killed me even further: they took away hyper scrolling. That's right, you're stuck with the scrolling option found on entry-level knock off gaming mice. Some people like that, but I like options. I can't tell you how many times I used hyperscrolling to get to the bottom of a long page of unimportant text that I didn't want to read. To add insult to injury, all 4 of my other mice have hyper scrolling—3 of which are marketed as gaming mice. So what features have been added? Well, they've added a supposedly better sensor (which I highly doubt will make a substantial difference), POWERPLAY wireless charging (this is actually really cool), and RGB lighting. Honestly, I'm not going to get into the RGB lighting. I think it serves little to no purpose aside from aesthetics, and the useful features that it has been substituted for makes me dislike it even further. And unfortunately, I can't comment much on the POWERPLAY wireless charging feature, since I don't have the POWERPLAY mat. But let me say this: it's a cool concept, I like that Logitech is doing it, but please also give me the features I have come to love in the G700 series. Having an excellent mouse that I also don't need to worry about plugging in to charge would be fantastic. For newcomers to Logitech mice, you may find that the G703 is what you want. But for someone who knows how Logitech's mice have evolved overtime, the G703 is simply a poor replacement for its predecessor. The ONLY saving grace for this mouse is POWERPLAY. And if you don't intend to shell out the extra money for the POWERPLAY mat, then don't consider this mouse because far cheaper Logitech mice have more features for substantially less.

    This mouse lives up to expectations. Fast, accurate, and I didn’t feel any different between wired or wireless. The main upgrade from the G403 is that it works with the PowerPlay pad (a mouse pad that charges the G703 and G903), but it wasn’t provided for me to test it on. With the Logitech Gaming Software, you can adjust the dpi between 200 to 12000, customized the rgb of the wheel and logo, and map some of the buttons. Some issues I have are that the rgb options are very limited, the mouse feels cheap (it’s not and it’s an excellent mouse), and for me, it’s a bit too narrow. Pros: -No lag wirelessly -Accurate and high dpi range -Include 10g weight -Nice braided cable -The white version looks good Cons: -Limited rgb customization, only rainbow and breathing -It feels like hollow plastic -Narrow The white version will probably get dirty real fast Out of the box, this mouse comes with micro usb dongle and receiver, soft braided cable, and 10g weight that you can insert in a magnetic latch. I was already using the Logitech Gaming Software, so it was easy as updating it for it to recognize the new hardware. Setting it up was easy and all the features are self explanatory. After setting it up, you can map all 6 buttons and set up the rgb for either the wheel, logo, or both. The rgb choices are only limited to off, color cycle, and breathing. It’s a little disappointing to not be able to have the wheel one color and the logo another. You can also set up what kind of mat you’re using. As stated earlier, the build quality doesn’t feel like a $100 mouse, but probably because it’s so light. I’ve had older gaming mice and the MX Master mouse, and they have a heft and premium feel. Without the weight, this mouse just feels like it’s hollow! The sides are rubber while the rest of the body has a smooth matte finish. The scroll wheel is perfect, smooth and quiet with just enough ratcheting. The mouse is a bit too narrow for me. I don’t have very large hands, but half of my hand is resting on the mouse pad. Being white, I’m sure that it’ll get dirty fast, but it does look great on my black and white desk set up. So how well does it do while gaming? In the short time I’ve had it, I can’t find any fault to it. The tracking is on point, with no lag wirelessly that I can see. And if you really need 12000 dpi, then it’s there. Going from wired to wireless is simple. Just take the usb adapter/receiver off the cable and attach the mouse. It takes less than a second for the mouse to connect again. I can’t say how long the battery will hold up yet, but it should run about 30 hours on a full charge, which takes about 2 hours. So should you get this? If you already have the G403 and are not planning to buy the PowerPlay mat, then probably not. If you like having more mappable buttons then consider the G903. For dedicated gaming and average computer usage, then this worth it. The fact that it works so well wirelessly is enough to sell me on it.

    Very nice mouse, but pricey

    The Logitech G703 is really a pleasure to use, as far as mice go. I found it to be extremely comfortable (albeit as a right-handed mouse user; southpaws will probably find the shape to be awkward). It feels great in operation too - the buttons and scroll wheel all have a satisfying feel to them. (Beware if you prefer a freely-rotating scroll wheel or one without detents, such as some of the other models Logitech makes - the G703 has well-defined detents as it turns. I personally prefer this, but your mileage may vary.) The G703 feels heads-and-tails better to me than Logitech's lower cost wireless mice (such as the M705). The companion software does allow really nice control of the various settings. The primary functionality is programming the mouse's resolution, especially based on what game you might currently be playing. This lets you adjust for faster movement or more precision. I like the ability to change the resolution, though I've found that once I've tuned it to a general setting that I like, I stick with it in almost all situations. Logitech has some very nice tracking functionality built in. I found it to work perfectly on a few different services, including a smooth black desk surface that causes trouble for a few older mice I own. They claim that the latency introduced by the wireless technology is imperceptible, and I certainly agree. However, I do not personally feel a significant delay with most wireless mice; I must just not be a twitchy-enough gamer. When plugged in with the included USB cable, the mouse also operates as a corded mouse, which eliminates any lag as well. One potential downside with this mouse is that the battery is built-in, and does not last as long as a wireless mouse that runs on standard alkaline batteries. This has not exactly frustrated me, but it is a bit annoying to have to remember to plug it in every other day or so. Logitech is actually introducing an optional companion mousepad for this mouse that features wireless charging when you use them together, which certainly guarantees you won't run flat at an inopportune time. My biggest issue with the G703 ultimately ends up being that, for the cost, I am not sure that I personally am able to take full advantage of its key features - the accuracy, and super low latency when operating wirelessly. I am a big fan of Logitech's M720 non-gaming mouse. The G703 does still feel like a nicer mouse, but for the price difference, I think the M720 would still be my pick in terms of value. However, because the quality feels so good to me, I would have no hesitation to recommend that you check this mouse out if you're someone that does notice wireless mouse latency as a factor when gaming.

    Great, Except for Instructions

    I've been a user of Logitech mice for a really long time. I found this mouse to be one of the more comfortable ones I've used in a long time given its higher arch than some other mice I've used. To get the most out of the mouse, you need to download the online driver software, which brings up my biggest problem with the mouse, the four page instruction booklet. It is pictures only with the exception of a URL and copyright notice. Also, make sure you get all the pieces out of the plastic casing in the box as that is where the dongle is to connect to your computer. It doesn't use Bluetooth or Wifi, instead its own LIGHTSPEED technology, which may be faster but requires its own connector in your USB port. Once you download/install the software, to get the most out of the battery life of the mouse, turn off the lights. Sure, you can customize the colors, but then you're eating into the battery life of the mouse. If you're into long gaming sessions with the mouse, you don't want it to die in the middle. Sure, you can then use it as a wired mouse, but that isn't its true purpose. You can also program the mouse's six buttons with the help of this software. Great for customizing for your games. The different DPI options are great for gaming too when you need to switch between settings. And, there is a 10g weight to make the mouse heavier if you so desire. Overall, I like the mouse, especially after customizing it with the available software. Without the software, you'll find it lacking. I do like the look of the white mouse over the black one, but that is a personal preference and has nothing to do with performance/behavior.

    The convenience of wired and freedom of wireless

    Sometimes the most important piece of equipment for a computer is not the hardware that goes into it, but the hardware used to interact with it. This G703 Wireless Gaming Mouse by Logitech provide extensive flexibility and can be utilized in a variety of environments and presenting a sleek and modern design. The left and right sides of the mouse are coated with a rubberized texture which helps to keep the mouse in your hand even when used on non-flat surfaces or upside down if you really needed to. Placing your hand on top of the mouse feels normal and comfortable for those accustomed to these types of mice. Inside the box, you will find your typical accessories, such as a USB cable, USB adapter, USB receiver, and Logitech branded 10g weight that is used to balance the mouse after you take it out of the box. The USB adapter is a microUSB to Female USB-A which connects to the USB charging cable and can be used as an extension cable for the USB receiver when it is plugged into the adapter. If you need to recharge the mouse, simply disconnect the USB adapter attached to the USB cable and connect the cable to the front of the mouse. Minimal effort required and there is no need to stop doing whatever you’re doing to recharge your mouse, since the mouse is now a wired one. The mouse is Plug and Play and does not require any specific drivers if you’re using Windows 10 and most likely will perform the same on other Windows-based operating systems. It only takes a minute or so after connecting the wireless receiver before the mouse can start functioning properly. Out of the box, the battery within the mouse is about 50% charged and with several days’ worth of use so far, I have not had the need to recharge it. Installing and using the optional Logitech Gaming Software allows for access to additional features of the G703 Wireless Mouse as well as other Logitech devices. These include controlling the LED lighting of both the Logo and the Scroll Wheel/Middle Mouse Button, programming the various keys on the mouse, adjust the DPI to control how quickly or slowly the cursor moves, battery status, and so forth. Overall, the Logitech G703 Wireless Gaming Mouse is a great accessory for anyone looking for a unique wireless mouse to use, whether it’s for gaming or just basic general use. With the versatility of being both a wireless and wired mouse, means that you can keep on doing what you’re doing without the need to stop and recharge.

    Best Wireless Mouse Ever

    I've had a lot of Logitech mice over the years. I've pretty much come to the conclusion that Logitech is pretty much the only mouse maker that matters to me anymore. I've had others, but inevitably I come back to Logitech mice. They've had a few stinkers over the years, but they have many great mice. Occasionally they make an awesome mouse. The G703 is no exception. In fact, I'd go as far to say that it marries a great sensor, a great classic layout, great lighting and great wireless tech into a mouse that is just about perfect for many gamers. I have several Logitech mice including a G502 and G602. The G602 is ok, but has some issues. The G502 was a dream mouse for me. I have to say it tracked the best, felt the best, and is pretty much my favorite mouse of all time. The G703 is basically a simplified, paired down, awesome version of the G502. It has the same sensor, RGB lighting, more ergonomic buttons, and no wires! Where the G502 has many individual weights that allow you to adjust things finely, the G703 includes one magnetic weight that can add a bit more heft to the mouse. The G502 has more buttons for adjusting DPI, and has Logitech's awesome free spinning wheel - whereas the G703 has only a standard, but nice click wheel. There is a rubberized texture to the mouse - which feels quite comfortable, but always makes me worry that it will get sticky a few years down the road. Time will tell there, but it's quite comfortable. The buttons on the site are polished plastic which are quite grippy when you need them to be. It's around the same size as the G502, so it's not too big if you're a clutcher, but you can palm this mouse easily too. The included charging cable is really nice quality braided nylon. While I haven't gauged battery life at this point, it's at minimum acceptable. The dongle included can plug into the cable keeping things nice and simple connectivity wise. One interesting feature of the G703 is that it can charge wirelessly with the PowerPlay charging mat. I don't have one of those, but the concept of keeping the mouse charged, and never having to have it plug in is an amazing concept. The thing about the G703 is that it makes all the right decisions when paring down features from the G502 - while also making a much cleaner aesthetic. The G703 is more comfortable than either the G502 or G602 that I also have, and has supplanted them as my favorite mouse all around. I love this mouse!

    Comfortable and on-the-fly DPI Customization

    The first thing I noticed when I started using this Logitech G703 was the lightweight and while it felt like I was playing with a feather, I did not like it until I realized it came with a 10 gram (0.4-ounce) weight you can insert into the bottom slot. Many will prefer its feather weight but for me it is a matter of preference and having a choice makes it perfect. Its lag free performance and extremely accuracy due to its optical sensor and DPI range up to 12,000 makes it the ideal mouse for gaming. The software automatically recognized all the games I play which was an unexpected but welcome feature. A very nice touch is that it has a small button that will change the DPI range automatically, allowing you to fine tune it on the fly for different situations as often as you need/want. There are 6 programmable buttons, much less than I would wish but its focus on gaming is obvious and works very well as such. Also welcome is the included very long USB cable which allows you to keep playing while it charges. It can also be charged wireless while playing with the optional Logitech G Powerplay mat if you want even more convenience. I cannot say much about that option because I have not tried it. At first it may look a little like cheap plastic but it is just on the surface because a careful examination will reveal it's sturdier than it appears. Considering Logitech's 50 million clicks guarantee, I am positive it is. Design and ergonomic is good as long as you are not left handed. The LED lighting is cool even though it may drain the battery quicker (still lasts a least a couple of days with some heavy playing) and it makes it look more premium which is how it actually feels. Highly recommended for gaming. I would rate it as 4 and a half stars but there is no such option. The half star I would take away is just because of the lack of options for the left handed.

    A great mouse for gaming and everything else

    Let me start off by saying that I have been playing computer games for many years. I would consider myself to be an above average player on most games. I don't get into as much as some because I like the raw feeling of playing without X tools. Well, this is one time where I can say that I missed out. For years, I have played with the standard wired mouse that came with the computer or have used the wireless laptop mice that I have acquired here and there. The Logitech G703 certainly made a difference. I love the feel and the response was amazing. I can't quantify the difference in my game play, but I can say that I felt the speed increase doing certain things. I also feel that this mouse is great for everyday computing. The fact that you can use it wired or wireless is nice. As someone that travels for work, I think that is a huge plus. Much like being at home, if the battery goes, I can then switch it up and not miss a beat searching for a new battery. That brings me to another perk of this beauty. The rechargeable battery is great. If I recall, the charging process didn't take long and the battery life has been exceptional. Getting into the physical features of the mouse, there is a lot to like. I love the feel of the body between the coated top and the rubber coated sides. It makes it easy to handle and it doesn't feel awkward at all. I also think the button and wheel placements are spot on. The coolest feature is of course the color changing. This isn't a must for me, but the kids got a kick out of it. I look forward to playing with that more through the app as time moves on. For now, I like the scrolling colors for entertainment. The lone con that I have is that it seems to be built for right handed people. It's okay to use with your left hand, but it certainly has a different feel due to the arcing of the top. I have used some universal/symmetric ones in the past and that would have been nice here. However, it's not a huge turnoff unless you use the mouse with your left hand.

    Logitech owns the mouse world - hands down

    For anyone that's ever bought a desktop computer, there's an good probability that one of your first acts was to trash the mouse that came with it. And if you did, there's an excellent chance you went with a Logitech product. The G703 is their latest advancement in the specialty line of gaming devices. First off is the look - yes, there are other led enhanced color changing mice, so I can't say the G703 has an edge here. Yes, it's very cool looking but doesn't have a range of options available with other manufacturers. As far as ergonomics, that's a very subjective choice. I don't think I need to remind everyone that if you're going to spend this kind of money for a mouse, it needs to feel good to you. Personally, I'd prefer it to have a bit less height in the middle, as I like my palm to be more naturally rested as opposed to a claw type grip. What I do like is the weighting option. Different games call for varying types of motion, if the screen area that gets the bulk of the action is basically centered in a small area, I find that heavier works best for me. Again, this is subjective and subject to your gaming style. Accuracy & precision is without question the best I've ever experienced. Combined with the on-the-fly software settings, there's more DPI available than you'll ever need. I used this wireless and found no issues in connectivity or battery life, but if you get involved in an overnight marathon, you can switch to wired/charging in a flash. I could go on with superlatives about the G703, but for me the choice comes down to one thing. I can spend $$ on more than a few products out there, but how long is it going to last? I honestly can't remember ever trashing a Logitech product. I've handed them down, given them away, but never had a mechanical failure. I have a 25 year old trackball on my work pc that has to have gone through untold millions of clicks and still working like new. For me, the reliability if the brand is without question, if I'm going to spend premium bucks for their product, it's nice to know it'll be with me for awhile.
