G303 Daedalus Apex Gaming Mouse

Along with the new keyboard, Logitech sent over their latest gaming mouse. The G303 Daedalus Apex is the 2nd generation based on an entirely new design which focuses on MOBA gamers. That’s not to say it won’t work for other types of gaming, but it’s an evolution of the G302 design which targeted MOBAs.

For me the mouse is a bit on the small side, it almost feels like a mobile mouse. But if you’re the type of gamer that tends to lay your hands flat and “cup” your mouse it’s extremely comfortable. The design overall though is completely solid, it doesn’t feel like a cheap piece of plastic with a lot of give to it. I feel like you could throw this into a bag with a gaming laptop without a worry.

I have average size hands but they dwarf the mouse pretty easily.

The G303 shares the same software as the G910, and you can easily switch between the functions of either device. It’s here you can tune the mouse to your liking, storing profiles on the onboard memory or calibrating it to your gaming surface of choice. You can preconfigure the DPI sensors adjustable modes and adjust the polling rate.

The sensor on the mouse is without a doubt the highlight. It’s incredibly smooth and I experience zero hiccups with it. I was checking out the game The Collider which has you navigating a long corridor that speeds up as you go. You need to have quick precise movements to get through each gate and I’ve never felt more in control than I did with the G303. I put the mouse through its paces with a variety of games like Heroes of the Storm, Diablo 3, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Overture. As I said, the control was incredibly accurate and smooth. The best way I can describe it is "natural."

Some other features of the mouse include customizable lighting, a heavy duty braided USB cable, and six buttons (two of which are suitable for customizing). The mouse runs an MSRP of $69.99 which feels just about right against competing products. Overall it's a great mouse, it's just depends if you would prefer something on the smaller more portable side or not.
