Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Equipped with a responsive sensor, lightspeed wireless technology and optional wireless charging, the G703 has it all.
Those strong points include the sensor. The G703 might be the inexpensive option, but it still features the same PWM3366 sensor that Logitech uses in the G502, G903, and its other high-end mice. Beloved by many for its precision and consistency, the presence of the PWM3366 automatically puts the G703 in good company.
This has sleek design and has great software.
The rubbery mouse wheel has a comfortable rubbery coating and knurling, with scrolling action that has soft detents—it doesn’t audibly “click” as you scroll it, but you can feel the notches just fine. The wheel doesn’t wobble, and has a very firm click action.
With the Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, you need not worry. It can last for an entire day without you charging it and even more. However, that depends with your lighting setting. If the lighting is always on, you are probably going to charge it more often. Nevertheless, compared to other mice, its battery life is way better.
Even if you run low on power in the midst of a game you don’t have to worry. You can easily plug-in the Lightspeed cable and play wired for a while until it’s fully charged. That kind of technology is usually reserved for more expensive mice, so this was a pleasant surprise. The wireless cable is also long enough to charge comfortably in almost any setup.
The Logitech G703 Lightspeed mouse’s 12,000 DPI sensor is plenty accurate for all kinds of games, and after a year of testing we’ve never felt a difference between using the G703 in wired or wireless mode.
Using zero smoothing and no pixel rounding, the G703 completes its responsive arsenal with technology that ensures accurate sensitivities even at high DPIs. As someone who typically plays with his DPI somewhere in the 800-1,000 range, toying with higher settings was a breeze with these functionalities, and I even found that I was more accurate scaling up my typical settings.
The thumb buttons for once felt sturdy and responsive whilst also being easy to click. The mouse features a textured rubber scroll wheel up top that has a thin RGB strip running through it for a little bit of glamour. The tactile wheel won’t let you scroll infinitely like the G900/903 but it is a lot quieter and more robust. There is a DPI switching button located behind the scroll wheel which is great but I would have liked to see 2 smaller buttons allowing me to cycle up and down quicker.

What reviewers didn't like

It’s perhaps on the pricey side, and isn’t the most exciting mouse to look at.
It doesn't glide as smoothly as some of its counterparts.
It only has 3 customizable buttons and this is expensive.
This is pricey.
Unlike the regular mouse, it is a bit pricey. In most places, it is $ 100 which can be quite costly to some people.
Its PowerPlay feature is expensive
But its software is clunky to use and the scroll wheel feels mushy.
At $99, it's a bit more expensive than the years-old Prodigy, even though it looks exactly like it on the outside.
This is designed for right handed only.
