Updated Logitech G403, G703 and G903 with HERO sensor
 
Looks like Logitech are refreshing the G403, G703 and G903 with their HERO sensor. The G703 HERO is lighter as well, at 95g down from 107g. The other two are the same weight as before. Release date is supposed to be sometime this month.

Small bit of news but I found it interesting nonetheless. Here are the links:

But what's the point...? I guess it's only for people who didn't get the previous versions already, but they could have at least lowered the price.

Yeah I'm not sure what they will cost where I live (Australia) yet as they aren't listed in any stores here yet, but I guess if they believe the HERO sensor is truly an upgrade then it's no surprise they would update some popular models with it. I think it's a pretty good upgrade for the G703 though, it's now only 7-8g heavier than the G403 and has slightly improved battery life. The G903 appears to get a massive boost in battery life but the weight remains the same.

The point is lighter mice and longer lasting batteries... and 'getting rid' of PixArt. Personally, I would have prefered all new mice (as always), not upgraded ones.

Would of really LOVED a re-released G3 model using their latest Hero updated sensor.

Then watch the shelves empty faster than their current range. That is what it's all about in the end, choosing the right model to update and release at this point in time.

The G3 update would sell like Mad at every retail point if they choose to do it. Logitech instead chooses to hang onto their older range like it was valuable, which it isn't.

Still waiting for budget gpro wireless it shouldn't be so much more expensive than g305 imo.

The G703 is lighter but for some reason the G903 isn't. Why?

The G703 got lightened but only gained 10 hours more battery life with the RGB lighting on, while the G903 stayed the same weight but gained a HUGE amount of extra battery life. It went from 24 hours with RGB lighting on to 140 hours with RGB lighting. So it appears that they chose to pack more battery capacity into it rather than lighten it.

They use a different battery in G703 Hero compared to G703 to make it lighter would be my guess. G903 Hero is the same weight because they didn't change battery. Hero sensor is just more efficient than PixArt sensors which explains the big jump.

Ah yes, I forgot the HERO sensor was the reason some of their other wireless mice get long battery life. This would certainly explain it better than my theory lol.
