Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex Gaming Mouse - Page 665

post #6641 of 7008
I've been seeing Best Buy's restocking it. So it should be easy to get.

hi!

As I am getting a little bit into overwatch (rank 63 right now) I would like to get something new mice wise. I have been using a WMO for ages - but sometimes I get the feeling of getting something new. It is not necessary i believe .. I guess you know that feeling.

So a g303 came into my mind (after some research those are the candidates :g303, FK2) . I am a left handed user (with the typical right hand button placement - left click on left etc.)
I know the side buttons are unusable for me - dont need those anyway.

Would you guys still recommend the g303? Or should I look for something else? Fk2 maybe..

Your scenario is very unique. I would say you often have to 'do with' bad shapes, as a lefty. g303 is a bad ambi in my opinion. You seem to be doing fine with your current setup. There are a bunch of companies releasing sensei style shapes suddenly. Shells must be rolling around for cents on cents. It's a good shell. Wait for the dust to settle.

If these sensei clones don't match up, go in on the FK2.

Logitech is very good in the sensor department..they are very bad in the ergonomics department.

Thanks for your comment.
Yea someday I just stopped looking for a new mouse cause of shape issues. I was rolling pretty good with my WMO.
Some days ago I went to a store and grabbed the g303 .. shape wise it was ok. Its impossible to give a "this will work" statement after one minute.
I read a lot about the g303 being uncomfortable after a couple of time so that might be a problem ..
Although I am a little bit into the sensor and the buttons on the g303.

What "sensei style" mice do you mean?

Steelseries Sensei. Really good ambi shell crippled by a laser sensor and poor implementation. Nixeus/Finalmouse/DreamMachine are suddenly coming into this vacuum. The sensei shell has been repurposed tons of times from cheap knock-off companies. These aren't knock-offs, they are new ambi's with a new sensor, in sensei molds.

Nixeus Revel
DM Pro S
Finalmouse Scream (don't consider this one)

Edit: I think Cougar has an ambi in the same vein...

A g303 is like holding a polygon incorrectly and the sensor placement is weird. It's uncomfortable all around.

Is there a certain DPI you should not go above with the G303 and 3366 sensor or is it pretty much the same all the way up till 12,000 DPI?

All steps are native as far as we know.

Other than jitter there is no problem with any dpi setting that has been shown by anyone so far I'm pretty sure. The new 3360 which is the public version of the 3366 has more smoothing above 2000 dpi, but logitech's version in the g303 does not have that.

Well~ depending on the firmware for the G303. Which turns out you CAN reflash/downgrade. I'd say how to but I have this feeling I'd regret it once the first "mouse no work now fix pls help" happens.

However, it's something I accidentally did. But it was a previously posted method on these forums. Only I did the last step incorrectly and put the mouse into bootloader mode. Just have a second mouse ready and you should be good. You will also have to use older software to avoid the stupid "you can't use this mouse until you update the firmware" bs. It's super easy once you figure it out.

G303Update v24 aka 95.1.24.0 is the one you are looking for.

True, you can reflash different firmwares. Not sure what that post was about or if it was even mine or I forgot to post it, but that's how I did it the last time.

You can just open the firmwareupdate tool with Resource Hacker for example and swap out the firmware-files.
I actually can't remember if I changed the version-string in the firmware-file or not.

Edit:
Also you actually don't even need to install the different LGS-Version. Just extract the installer with 7-Zip then
Code:
$_OUTDIR\1-LGS-x64\Setup\$_OUTDIR\FWUpdate\G303\G303Update_v24\.rsrc\FIRMWARE
for example.

The firmware above mentioned is available in the LGS_8.70.315 for example thumb.gif
