Incidentally, I tested to ensure that the mouse is the problem by replacing it with another mouse (an older Logitech G5, as it happens), and with no config changes, its wheel and overall functions are solid with no problems at all. I also tested the G203 on a different computer (a laptop), and it had the same problems there.
I have contacted Logitech via their support site. It appears the mouse has a 2-year warranty! Waiting on a response.
If you’re in the market for an entry-level gaming mouse, look no further, this is the mouse for you. Trust me. Whether for you or someone else you can’t go wrong with this mouse. I decided to create a huge review guide for people like me who just absolutely need to see detailed reviews before they pull the trigger on the product. Below is a pros and cons list and below that is a detailed paragraph about this mouse if you’re a reader :-)
- RGB Lighting (And not some solid color BS, like 12.8 million colors breathing effects type of stuff)
- Depressed Area Left and Right click, helps keep your grip on the mouse (picture for example)
- Smooth design and texture great for claw holders
- 8000 dpi sensor with ability to change in increments of 50 (7950, etc.)
- DPI Button with up to 4 on-the-fly dpi changes (also can be programmed to a key)
- 2 custom buttons both on the inside of the mouse (more on that below)
- No Braided Cable (they fray)
- Worst scroll wheel I have ever seen in my life* (UPDATE: Scroll wheel is actually VERY good for games if you use it to switch weapons/items if because the notches are there to stop you from saying, switching 1 too much, otherwise, the scroll wheel is pretty meh because it just FEELS clunky)
- Cable is a tad bit short
The G203 Prodigy is hands down the best gaming mouse at this price point. The RGB lighting alone makes this mouse worth it considering the price point because a lot of good quality mice out there comprise the RGB lighting for functionality. Logitech did not compromise on this AT ALL boasting a full 16.8 million colors with color effects such as breathing and fading into other colors, much more than the old bs “RGB mice” that just have 1 solid color with an on and off switch (*cough Steelseries cough*). All you have to do is download the software from the website by searching “G203 Prodigy Software” and you’re good. Moving on, the dips in the mouse on the left and right clicks are amazing. It helps you keep your fingers gripped on the mouse when you click and move it around. After I used this mouse because my old gaming mouse without that feature shorted out, I just couldn’t go back. Must have on any gaming mice IMO, even if you don’t get this one. Additionally this mouse has a pretty smooth design and decent texture for your hands, I’ve had some that have felt better but not bad. The 8000 DPI sensor is also extremely good at this price point, it’s very accurate, and can be adjusted in increments of 50 (I know this sounds stupid but some mice don’t even have this precision, the Steelseries Kana v2 I had before only adjusted in increments of 400 which is absolutely terrible btw, don’t buy that mouse) which is huge. There’s also a DPI button and 2 custom mappable buttons which is pretty standard. This mouse has a rubber cable which I like but some people like braided ones (they look nice but are meh).
Every mouse isn’t perfect though but this one comes pretty close. The only big problem with this mouse is the GOD AWFUL scroll wheel* (Update on this above, this depends on the genre of games you are playing) If you use the scroll wheel regularly, this is a HUGE drawback. Scrolling is somewhat clunky and the texture feels very uncomfortable so if you are a person using their scroll wheel every 5 minutes, I would have to tell you this may not be the mouse for you. Luckily I don’t use the scroll wheel that much. Lastly is the cable is a tad short but will be fine for 99% of you as long as you’re by your computer at a reasonable distance.
I hope this helps you guys make a great choice on the mouse to get, I would highly recommend you to grab this mouse if you haven’t already. See you on the battlefield!
The breathe LED lighting looks nice, but can easily be customized (or disabled if you don't like LEDs like me)
My favorite thing about this mouse is that the size/shape is perfect for someone with small hands - not too big, not too small.Very comfortable to use.
Really my only complaint is the mouse feet. Now they are smooth, the mouse glides nicely etc.. however:
On mine, several of the feet were applied crooked and not totally in the slot where the foot should go. Kind of disappointing when the build quality of the rest of the mouse was nice (and obviously ymmv here I might have just been unlucky)
Also my other concern is that I've had issues with these type 'sticker' mouse feet in the past, where they inevitably fall off (*cough MX518 cough*). I just got this mouse so time will tell here, but I much prefer mice that have the hardier, large plastic glide pads (e.g. Razor Deathadder, Corsair M45). I've never had a mouse with that style of mouse-feet where the feet fell off.
I'll start by saying it's an AWESOME mouse............at first. Right out of the box, it was flawless and super smooth. I had people in FPS games saying things like "when did you get so good????". Problem is, the mouse only works that great for like 2-3 weeks. After that, the sensor becomes insanely inaccurate, erratic and jittery. It's like the quality of the sensor is set to some sort of timer.
I've gone through 3 of these mice to come to this conclusion....the first one I ordered on Amazon, replacement sent by Amazon, and one that Logitech sent me free of charge. ALL 3 were great for roughly 2 1/2-3 weeks then gradually became jittery and erratic. Great aim became awful aim. Once a new mouse was sent, it was perfect again until week 3. I couldn't even draw a straight line in MS paint once week 3 hit. I also tried different mouse pads, different pcs and tried cleaning the sensor just for kicks, even though after the 1st RMA I knew it was the mouse and nothing on my end. There's also no actual driver for the mouse, it just uses Windows drivers from 2006. There's Logitech gaming software to customize the light settings and what not, but no actual driver.
To see if yours is jittery, switch to 800x600 resolution and move the cursor around. This resolution will give you a real up close view of the mouse. If the movement is anything like mine was, it'll be all jittery, jumpy and erratic. After doing research on this it appears Logitech has a wide spread issue of problems with their mice. I'll continue buying their speakers, and they have some of the best customer support around...but i'll never touch another Logitech mouse ever again. This thing seriously drove me mental.
