I began my search for a replacement gaming mouse after going
through two Razor mice that gave me frequent cursor jumping
My criteria for my new mouse was straight-forward: it had to
have a thumb-button grid, and it had to have high
When I found the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse it was
relatively new to the scene, but Logitech have been making quality
mice and peripherals for a long time, so I had faith that it would
be a good choice.
I am not disappointed. This mouse is a joy to use... all of the
thumb buttons are well-placed, and they are "staggered" to make it
easier to determine which button your thumb is resting
The build-quality is great, which is what I expect from
Logitech, and I've never had a problem with cursor jumping or mouse
This is a cabled mouse, which for me is perfect: I don't have to
worry about changing batteries or losing charge at an inopportune
time. The cable also ensure the best response time available, which
is important to me as I do a lot of PVPing.
Another great thing about this mouse is its price point. At
$79.00 or less, it's extremely affordable.
With all of that said, I do have one gripe about this mouse: the
third mouse button (if you look in the pictures, it's the one that
would rest under your right ring finger).
This button is supposed to essentially double up the number of
buttons you have access to, as it acts like a modifier key, but it
really has no practical use. If it were just there then it wouldn't
be a problem, but the thing is that it is too easy to press, and
when you do it cancels any other buttons that you're pressing on
the mouse. Usually this isn't a big deal, as I don't press and hold
mouse buttons too often, but when you do it's a little bit of a
Fortunately, that is my only complaint about this mouse, and
it's easy to get used to.
This mouse has all the features that most people will want or
- Programmable/scriptable buttons: if just
having extra buttons isn't enough for you, you can code each one to
perform automated actions.
- Profile storage: you can actually save up to
three different profiles on the mouse so that if you
travel with it or move it to a separate computer, your settings
come with you.
- The G-shift key: as I mentioned in the review,
I don't consider this a feature so much as a pain, but it probably
has value to some people.
- Adjustable DPI: set up to five different
levels of precision on the mouse, on the fly!
- It's in good shape: the mouse is sculpted to
fit your hand, for hours (and hours) of mousing.
- High-precision laser: the gaming-grade laser
tracker responds to even the smallest movement.
- Durable: each of the large primary buttons is
rated to 20 million clicks.
- 1 millisecond USB report rate: it pretty much
doesn't get more responsive than that folks!
- Braided cable: the cloth wrapped cable feels
strong and durable, and it looks pretty good too.
- Low-friction feet: these keep the mouse easy
to move, with no bumps or drags.
Good Recommendations Summary:
I recommend for this mouse. I've used a
lot of mice, both business and gaming, and the Logitech G600 mouse
is a top-of-the-line mouse that's offered at a great price.
