Log­itech G703

A classy wire­less gam­ing mouse for a very rea­son­able price.

Log­itech’s G903 is its premium wire­less mouse, but it won’t ap­peal to all tastes. The com­pany thank­fully has an­other op­tion, though: the er­gonom­i­cally shaped G703. While it has fewer fea­tures and cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions than the high­erend G903, the main dif­fer­ence is that this one has a flat­ter and wider de­sign that’s a bit more comfy for palm-grip­pers — although at 107g, it’s still light­weight enough that more fin­ger-ori­ented grip styles work fine, too.

The pain point for wire­less mice is recharg­ing them, but if you’re will­ing to fork out an­other $150 to get Log­itech’s Pow­er­play mat, you’ll never have to worry about this, as it charges the G703 via in­duc­tion. Even with­out that mat, charg­ing is fairly seam­less: there’s a 1.8m braided USB cable in­cluded in the box, plugs into the front of the mouse to charge it. That cable doesn’t im­pede per­for­mance, so when teth­ered, the G703 works just like an other wired gam­ing mouse. With 2–3 hours of gam­ing per day with medium/high­sen­si­tiv­ity set­tings, we found our­selves recharg­ing the mouse ev­ery 1.5 weeks or so — al­most bang-on Log­itech’s claimed 32 hours.

There’s lit­tle be­tween the G703 and G903 — both use the same sen­sor (the Pixar PMW3366, 200–12,000dpi) and soft­ware for sen­si­tiv­ity, but­ton and light­ing con­fig­u­ra­tion. The G703 has only one DPI but­ton, though, so you need to cy­cle through dif­fer­ent sen­si­tiv­ity set­tings, rather than move back and forth, but it’s well-equipped with six pro­gram­mable but­tons and still packs in all the re­ally crit­i­cal el­e­ments.
