The Logitech Gaming Mouse G300 is the latest addition to our family of gaming mice. Its new compact shape, three onboard profiles with tons of configuration options, speedy 1millisecond report rate, and 2500 DPI optical sensor will make it a great addition to your gaming set-up.
The mouse is compact – only 112mm long x 73mm wide x 35m high – and features a sculpted, ambidextrous shape, so it’s great for people with smaller hands, lefties, and those who prefer to play with a fingertip grip style. It’s also lightweight, coming in at 111g with the cable, and 85g without.
It features nine programmable buttons that are carefully placed to be easily reachable, but also out of the way when you don’t need them. Out of the box there are three onboard profiles are configured with basic MMO, FPS, and productivity settings, and illuminated areas near the thumb glow red, blue, or green to let you know which one you’re using.
Its sensor tracks smoothly and precisely across a wide range of surfaces and hand speeds, so you can select units more quickly, stop standing in the fire faster, and zero in on targets more accurately. Also, the mouse communicates over USB at up to 1000 reports per second—as fast as USB can go, and eight times faster than standard USB mice.
If you don’t like the default settings, they’re easy to reprogram with Logitech Gaming Software. Button, DPI, and report rate settings are all stored in three onboard memory profiles, and you can choose from any of seven colors (or disable lighting entirely) to indicate which profile is active. So you can configure the mouse to work exactly how you want it to with no software required, or move it between computers without having to reconfigure it every time. If you want to take advantage of the more advanced features Logitech Gaming Software has to offer, enable automatic game detection and you’ll have custom configurations for every game you play.
