Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse Review

Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse

Background:

I began my search for a replacement gaming mouse after going through two Razor mice that gave me frequent cursor jumping problems.

My criteria for my new mouse was straight-forward: it had to have a thumb-button grid, and it had to have high build-quality.

Review:

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 on. 

The build-quality is great, which is what I expect from Logitech, and I've never had a problem with cursor jumping or mouse tracking.

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 PITA.

Fortunately, that is my only complaint about this mouse, and it's easy to get used to.

 

G600 Features

This mouse has all the features that most people will want or need:

  • 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.
