Logitech G203 Reviewed

Introduction

Logitech’s G203 Lightsync is the updated version of the already-popular G203 Prodigy. The Lightsync version now has some stunning RGB added. It’s a simple right-handed mouse that has two programmable macro buttons, so the design is minimalist and clean.

Specs and Software

The G203 Lightsync has high-quality left and right mouse buttons, a scroll wheel, a DPI switch in the central column, and two side buttons. The sensor is optical and it goes up to 8,000 DPI and it has a polling rate of 1,000 Hz.

This is very respectable for a budget gaming mouse and it should be more than enough for casual gamers. And weighing only 85g (3 ounces), the G203 Lightsync is especially appealing for FPS gamers who use a low sensitivity.

You also get 3 RGB lighting zones on the mouse and you can use Logitech’s G Hub Software to customize the RGB. The software is very detailed and there are many things that you can tweak, such as your DPI levels and what the side buttons do.

Gaming

If you are buying the Logitech G203 Lightsync, then you know what you are doing. The left and right mouse buttons feel high-end and they snap back as soon as you hit them. They are also very easy to click, which is important for a small mouse.

When it comes to the sensor, it tracks very well. The sensor can track up to 8,000 DPI, which means that it can track up to 200 inches in a single second. No one but the most elite gamers will notice the difference between this sensor and one that can track up to 20,000 DPI.

Design

One of the most important aspects of the Logitech G203 Lightsync is the design. It’s a very small mouse, so if you have a bigger hand, it’s probably not the best choice. On the other hand, if you have small hands, this mouse will sit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Since the side buttons are on the left side, it’s pretty much a right-hand-only mouse. 

Conclusion

The Logitech G203 is a very affordable gaming mouse that comes with a high-quality sensor. The build quality is great and the RGB lighting makes the mouse pop. You can get it in a few different colours, so you can match it with the rest of your setup. The only potential downside is that it’s very small, so people with big hands should avoid it.
