Logitech G903 Review

Software
The G903 will function without the software suite installed, but to get the most from your new mouse, it’s best to install the Logitech Gaming Software.

Upon opening the software, you have the option to change between on-board memory or software memory. Both options work exactly the same if you don’t intend to move your mouse to any new machine. You can also see the available buttons as well as the charging status.



The second page allows customisation of specific settings, such as polling rate, optical sensor sensitivity, and the function of different buttons on the device. There’s also the option to change the button layout on the mouse, due to the ambidextrous design of the G903.



RGB lighting is a must on gaming devices these days; here’s where you can change the lighting. Mind you, lighting effects are incredibly limited, giving the choice of “Breathing” or “Colour Cycle”. No static colour can be selected. Brightness and the speed of animation can be adjusted.



The Logitech software provides detailed feedback on current power draw, even being as granular as noting the usage from the system, wireless and RGB lighting.



Due to the PixArt PWM3366 sensor being so incredibly sensitive, it’s possible to tune the mouse to your specific surface, or choose from the Logitech presets.



Tuning the mouse is a simple process, taking around 60 seconds.



Finally, if you need to keep track of how many times you click specific buttons on the mouse, Logitech have provided the ability to get a heatmap-style readout.



One thing we did note was missing was any kind of macro support; hopefully Logitech will add this at some point in the future.
