  1. Eric

    I bought this on Black Friday 2020 for $19.99 + HST with my own money. It is a fantastic bargain at that price, with integrated RGB, customizable 6 button layout and great build quality at its price.

    The most striking feature of the mouse is the integrated RGB, which is configurable using the Logitech G Hub (downloadable separately at the Logitech site). The RGB is integrated into the logo and a swoosh along the curve on the back of the mouse. The lighting is controlled by 3 individually controllable LEDs. Preset options are available, or you can customize your own sequences using the software. For those that aren’t permitted to install Logitech G Hub, it will flash an obnoxious rainbow wave – fortunately, an RGB profile can be uploaded from a computer that has Logitech G Hub for use with computers (e.g. work machines) where 3rd party installation of software is not allowed.

    The mouse is basic enough to be acceptable in office use, with a clean design and non-aggressive RGB lighting. The scroll wheel supports panning, but does not support horizontal scroll. The scroll wheel only comes with the one notchy default setting, there is no freewheeling version. Some may find the scroll wheel to provide more resistance than expected.

    For gaming use, it holds its own, with precise clicking, and configurable DPI. Care has been taken to package the rubber cord so that it would not develop kinks while in shipping. It is comfortable for me to hold using my tip grip and large hands. However, I believe that people with large hands may find it uncomfortable to use with a palm grip.

    The mouse is not truly ambidextrous, due to the inclusion of two buttons on the left side of the mouse – however left handed users may choose to deactivate those buttons using the Logitech G Hub and/or ignore them entirely. All other buttons are easily accessible and I don’t find it likely that I would trigger the DPI button by accident.

    Overall, I recommend this mouse.

    Have bought 3 of these in the past 2 years, they look and work good initially but 2 units have failed in after a year. Exact same issue the left mouse button ends up double clicking on single click. One of the parts (Omron switches) in the Logitech gaming mice has changed the country of manufacturing + part quality means these mice will fail more frequently.

    Save your money and get something that won’t break so quickly. There are fixes out there can buy the new switches and take apart the mouse to solder on the new ones but shouldn’t have to on a product under 2 years old. Or if you are able to send in for warranty so Logitech will get their act together and make good products again. There is another manufacturer (ASUS) with a gaming mouse that supports swappable switches no soldering and comes with 2nd set for not much more $

  3. Galaxy

    Used for about a year and a half since I was on a tight budget and it’s held up decently well. It has a good shape, good switches, and the side buttons are pretty comfortable to press but that could just be me. However, the wire is not great and it gets dirty very easily. The mouse has picked up a light blue stain from where my hand rests on the mouse and I haven’t been able to fully clean it off.

    Overall, it’s a good mouse for the price but it can get dirty and the wire is not great.

  4. Le Vagabond

    Fairly cheap price for a fantastic mouse.

    Cons :
    – I wish the mouse was a little bit lighter. 10g less would be nice.
    – This mouse is going to end up double clicking. This is the 3rd G203 that I buy in 3 years. The switches are bad. The clicks themselves are very crisp but the mechanism underneath is trash.
    – Logitech’s customer service is the worst I’ve ever seen. If you make a warranty claim, good luck, it could take weeks before they answer.

    These are the only cons, other than that, if you have small hands, this mouse is a great buy.

    It turned out to be a very successful model, light, nimble, the click is clear, the buttons are responsive. Ergonomically, this is one of the most comfortable mice I’ve ever used, wired or not. Can be customized with user-friendly software. An extremely good mouse model, almost the only adequate “gaming” mouse among the entire Logitech line. For a relatively small price, you get a good sensor, a good design, a soft cable and an interesting backlight. A high-quality mouse, the best in terms of price / quality ratio. As for me, a top mouse for its money has good and understandable software. But there are some problems with the software. And also there is no indication of switching dpi and it is impossible to turn off the backlight without software.

    Best hand feel ever (just perfect), light weight, great scroll wheel feedback, smooth tracking, beautiful rgb colors and a simple design that just works. When my 12 button mmo mouse gave out recently I moved to keyboard keybinds and this mouse. No software is required as 6 button mice are recognized and programmable on every major OS (Linux, BSD, Windows, MacOS, etc.) and in every game without additional software. This G203 and the G502 are possibly the best mice ever made.

  7. Amazon Customer

    I have been using this mouse for about two weeks. The tracking is good and it looks good with the lights. It functions well. It does not have as many features as some gaming mouses (like all the side buttons), but it is good for casual gaming and general use. The buttons and scroll wheel all are working. It was a little tight on first use, but after first day was easy and smooth to use. The surface has a very smooth feel to it. I am very happy with it.

  8. Andy Bosold

    This is honestly hands down the best value mouse I’ve used. If you’re looking for the best bang for the buck and purchasing a new PC gaming set up, this would be the first mouse I recommend. Also if you’re a 3D artist and looking for a mouse with a nice scroll wheel button and scrolling mechanism that works wonderfully with all your 3D software packages, this is the mouse I’d recommend. For the quality you get, I personally think its cheap and a great deal. Now, having raved about how good of a deal it is, I’m not going to say it’s as good as the Razer Viper Ultimate Wireless that I just recently purchased. It just isn’t that good. The G203 is considerably heavier than the Viper Ultimate and I have come to really appreciate a lighter mouse. However, the G203 is solidly built and I’m sure I’ll be using the two that I have for several years because they are well built and durable.

    The DPI sensitivity can be turned up far higher than I would personally ever want (8000 DPI) and I doubt it will be a limiting factor for most people. It has a 1000Hz pooling rate, which is a far higher refresh rate than any monitor I know of and I doubt you really need much more if any at all for the foreseeable future. The shape of the body of the mouse is nice, after using the Viper Ultimate, I do wish the G203 was a bit shorter when measured rising up off the mousepad but seriously a minor gripe. After using the Viper Ultimate, I do wish the backward and forward buttons on the side of the mouse were a bit bigger like the Viper Ultimate but they are workable.
    The lighting on the mouse is surprisingly pleasing a smooth. From my experience the Logitech G Hub software is well designed at easy to use. I heavily prefer G Hub compared to Razer Synapse. Synapse so often requests log in credentials and it’s a rage inducing pain, Logitech in contrast does it the correct way and does not require a log in at all. You just have to install the software and that’s it, it works and it doesn’t take up too many system resources. The cord of this mouse is a bit heavier than some and less flexible than some but it’s not bad. I highly recommend a mouse cord Bungee to go with this mouse, its a great combo if you’d rather not spend the extra coin on a wireless mouse and you can be highly competitive gaming with that set up. I personally use this mouse with the Thermaltake Tt e SPORTS Galeru Bungee on my work machine and it’s awesome. I tend not to lug around a bungee in my backpack with my laptop but the G203 is my main laptop mouse and I do well in competitive games without the bungee also.

    This mouse is an easy recommendation for me, I think it’s one of the best investments one can make as a PC gamer. I would guess it’s light years better than mice that are included with most if not all prebuilt PC’s. As a long time (25+ years) PC builder, enthusiast and gamer it’s hard to put into words how impressive this one mouse is in terms of cost to performance ratio, it’s a landmark in my mind. It’s the minimum and the maximum that I feel like you really need to be a strong competitive gamer, everything else is either that extra icing on the cake or the e-waste that will fill a landfills quickly in coming years. Just my personal guess this mouse could last you 10 years and there wont be a major compelling reason to upgrade outside of weight during that time. A slow transition to all USB-C maybe could happen and that might be a reason to get a new mouse but honestly this one I think will last you a while if you want it to.

    This is a good mouse with good basic features including a back button and the ability to change the DPI depending upon what you are doing. I use Photoshop and having the option to go to 8000 is nice while I fall back for general browsing. Options for scrolling too in the software setup.

    There are mice out there that have insanely high DPI settings and other bells and whistles, but this wired mouse particularly at its price point is simply an excellent value – particularly on sale as it was in late 2020. Even if you aren’t a hardcore gamer, this mouse makes a premium general use mouse.

    Logitech has been making computer accessories for years and has a reputation for quality. They continue to earn that reputation here. The mouse feels like a nice quality device, punching well above its price point. The mouse moves very smoothly on the desktop mouse surface I use and the buttons have a satisfying feel. The lighting is modest but tasteful and pleasant giving it a classy and not garish appearance. Again, the entire device looks and feels more expensive than it is.

    It is rated at 8000DPI – I know that there are mice out there with 16000+ DPI but with the greatest respect to all the spec jockeys, this mouse at its highest setting is more accuracy than all but the best pro players could utilize. At the end of the day the DPI marketing numbers after a certain point comes down more to bragging rights than actual advantage in gaming for the vast majority of players. And it has a total of six buttons which can be set for specific usage which again is enough for most players.

    It comes with the very robust and slick logitech software to tweak the settings of the mouse (unlike some other brands which have pretty clunky software) and no doubt that is thanks to the years of honing their product line. And like all the logitech products I have owned in the past, I have no doubt that they will continue to support with driver updates well into the future.

    Bottom line, you cannot go wrong with this mouse or Logitech. Usually, you pay more for the Logitech brand but in this case the price is very reasonable for the quality you are getting here – if anything, its a true bargain. As an aside, I bought a logitech webcam about 10 years ago and not only is it still better than most the laptop cameras of today they STILL sell that model here on Amazon, such is the classic quality of that model. My point is, rather than agonize about claimed specs with some of the sketchy brands advertising here on Amazon, stick with Logitech and not worry about it safe in the knowledge you are getting a well made, executed, and priced wired gaming mouse.

    UPDATE: Nov 18 2022. so my son plays a LOT of first person shooter games like overwatch and Fortnite and is pretty demanding on equipment. The mouse stopped working properly so I contacted support and got a new mouse. It was a a fairly painless experience and the new mouse works great. I see it’s on sale again for half price (~$25) and I’m ordering another one because I’m so pleased with this model.

    I needed a second mouse and went with the same version of the mouse from 3 years ago. I didn’t expect them to improve it but they did. 10/10

  12. Amazon Customer

    Bought it around a month ago and I like it. I like the in hand feel and the clicks. By default, the side buttons act as forward and backward and sometimes get pressed unintentionally when I am browsing the internet. I’m sure they can be reprogrammed to do anything you like or maybe nothing at all if you install their software.

    Sigh, who thought it was a good idea to send refurbished mice? When I got the box in my hands, it was already opened from the back. And right after that I notice the skates are already worn out. (You can see there is no reflection on the g203 but my g305’s skates from last February are still new). This is a disappointment.
