Despite being a great gaming mouse, the Logitech G203 LightSync is for the average hand size. Especially those used to a claw or palm grip would not feel comfortable using the mouse that is ideal for a fingertip grip. However, the Logitech G203 mouse is an excellent gaming mouse, a perfect blend of comfort, style, good value, and performance at a very affordable price. Well, this is the gist of any Logitech G203 review that you will come across.
Although the maker had to compromise with the features to maintain the price and affordability, the ambidextrous mouse is ideal for casual gaming. Therefore, it will be wrong to draw comparisons with some premium gaming mice. Most importantly, the mouse is comfortable to grip for those who stick to the three main grip styles popular among gamers.
Logitech g203 Lightsync – Design and Build
The small wired Logitech mouse G203 measures 4.59×2.45×1.5 inches but the Logitech G203 weight of 85 grams seems slightly heavy for the size. However, it does not matter if you are not using it as an esports mouse. The sturdy build of the mouse resembles any premium gaming mouse, and the design has enough similarities with the traditional gaming mice. It has a right-handed symmetrical profile and a 6-button layout usually seen in esports mice.
Despite familiar design aesthetics, the rounded back end of the G203 LightSync that extends up to the base of your palm ensures a snugger fit than you will find in most gaming mice. It facilitates precise pointer control for achieving more on screen without too much movement. Those with large hands preferring claw style or fingertip grip can easily tuck the mouse under the palm or place the fingertips on the trigger without starching or lifting the palm.
The button configuration of the Logitech G203 gaming mouse comprises two main clicks, a plastic scroll wheel in the middle, two macros on the left side, and DPI pre-set button just behind the scroll wheel. As the buttons maintain a central position, the finger can reach these easily in an elongated mouse. All 6 buttons are programmable and of excellent quality that triggers a fast response. There is considerable travel under the two main buttons that are ideal for jitter-clicking.
The mouse has a slew of glide skates on the underside, including the mandatory top and bottom skates and n additional bonus sensor ring. The arrangement ensures smooth and frictionless movement with or without a mouse pad.
For personalization of the G203 LightSync mouse, you can use Logitech’s G Hub software and a visual image of the device to change the polling rate, the DPI setting, RGB lighting, and even assign macros and commands to buttons.
The performance of the Logitech G203 LightSync is decent at best, but it would be too much to expect perfection and precision in some of its rivals, like the Steel Series Rival 3 and Razer Viper Mini. However, the sensors are responsive and dependable.
