Thoughts on the G203?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
It's currently on sale on Canada Computers and I'm thinking of picking one up.

I always loved the classic Logitech shape and the reviews seem to say the build quality is similar with the major difference being the sensor. But even with that the sensor doesn't seem to be noticeably worse. No angle snapping, prediction, etc.

What's the consensus around here for those who have tried it or looked into it?

The shape is pretty meh, I find it hard to grip. Other than that it was a decent mouse. If the sides were flat it would have been a lot better

It's the same shape as this is it not?

No idea but I doubt it

It's like an egg with angled sides feels pretty weird

I can't use it. It feels like **** with a low sensitivity. Not sure if it's just the shape, or if it's just the sensor.

Shape, the sensor was fine

The classic logitech mice like that have flatter sides, they are much more comfortable imo.
The g pro sides slant much more inwards.

So yeah for the price it's a great mouse, in my very picky opinion there isn't a lot between the Pro and 102/203 sensor, in fact i think i might even slightly prefer the Mercury sensor. It just feels a tad more instantaneous in very slow movements.
But the switches are definitely worse in the 102/203. Lighter and less defined, at least my one sample is, i'm always a bit hesitant calling it a general issue as it could just be manufacturing differences.
And it doesn't have UV coating so the plastic will lose its texture fast.

I do like the shape though, but due to the sloping sides i tend to grip the mouse differently than i would say a FK2 where my thumb and pinky would be pretty much on the mousepad whereas on the Pro/102/203 they hover just above the pad.

I really like this mouse but there are a couple of cons:

- The stock feet are total crap, I'm not sure if its just that they were put on lazily and out of position or its the material they're made of but movement in game felt really sluggish until I replaced them.

- Mouse 1 & 2 are hypersensitive, regularly enough I'll be trying to quickly tap and a single click will click twice instead. I did fix the sensitivity by taping a small piece of paper under the mouse button (sounds crazy but helps a lot) but sometimes, less often I get unwanted double clicks.

aside from this, its a very small mice, I'm used to small mice and it took me a day to adjust and am now completely comfortable with it.

I really like the sensor, personally I'm not into the 3366 bigeyedsmiley.png I own a couple of g303s and the tracking for me felt poor until I used the software and surface tuning which I found inconsistent. With the g102/203 I just plugged it in and didn't bother with any software thumb.gif

Not as good as the g100, shape is meh and switches are horribly light and you can't click them very fast, not sure if they're cheaper omrons or what but rated 10 million. Sensor is cool not as good as 3360 but close.
