We have graced our site quite recently with the presence of Logitech products and we are quite lucky to immediately follow up with another Logitech review. This time we’re looking at the G203 Lightsync gaming mouse which bolsters a very 90s look and feel. For our review, we received the blue model, which first looked a bit like the ugly duckling, but quickly grew on us in the landscape that is filled with black gaming mice with flashy red neon colors to look ‘badass’. Sometimes you need something old, something new, and something blue.

Design

After removing the G203 from the confines of its tiny box, we were greeted by the bluest piece of hardware we have ever seen before. The mouse was done in a solid dark blue, with hints of teal for the mouse wheel and the middle part between the left and right buttons. Other distinguishable features are the Logitech logo on the backside of the mouse, which is lit up by LED lights, as well as the small back border, which is also a LED strip.

Other than the features mentioned above, the mouse has a standard shape and size, no special curvatures, and only two small extra buttons on the left side, and a small extra button up top.

Comfort

The mouse has a very standardized shape and thus, while not doing anything in terms of comfort, it’s just a basic experience. The solid plastic shell makes it easy to clean, and the matte finish gives you a bit more grip. The mouse wheel is chunky enough and has a proper resistance to it, so that is properly handled. There’s not really anything more in the comfort department for the G203.

Specs

  • Lightsync RGB Lighting
  • 6 programmable buttons
  • Resolution 200 – 8000 dpi
  • USB data format 16 bits/axis
  • USB report rate: 1000 Hz (1ms)
  • Microprocessor 32-bit ARM

Overview

The G203 is a plug and play device that needs no additional software. You can switch between several preset dpi profiles by pressing the button right above the mouse wheel. Even though you have a mouse that can go up to 8000 dpi, the preset profiles are 400, 800, 1600 and 3200 dpi respectively. If you wish to tinker with these settings, as well as the LED settings, you’ll have to download Logitech’s G Hub, which serves as a toolkit for all Logitech’s products.

While with G Hub you have many bits and bobs to explore in terms of dpi and LED settings, you can also assign new functions to each of the mouse’s buttons. We have to be honest though, as you somewhat need your standard options for a mouse, this one doesn’t offer that much in terms of assigning a lot of special content. This mouse is somewhat a spruced-up version of the Microsoft mouse that could be found in every PC shop more than a decade ago, albeit with the necessary adjustments for gaming, and in this case a very original color font.

Conclusion

Logitech’s G203 Lightsync is a nice and affordable gaming mouse, and we were also pleasantly surprised with the color options of the actual frame. While the G203 also comes in black and white, we appreciated this somewhat bold color palette for this solid piece of plastic. Don’t get us wrong, this is a fun device to work with, but in terms of being directed towards gamers, we’d specify that more towards casual gamers due to the absence of some extra buttons. That being said, this one’s a fun addition to your setup if you don’t require too many whistles and bells.
