Logitech G703 is one of the G series signature mice that stand out the most. It's associated with the lower models G403 and G603, which seem like the exact same copies of each other, but in reality, there are some significant differences between them.
While protecting the same custom-tailored ergonomic design of the GX03 series, Logitech has equipped their G703 with higher tech specs and the new dual wired/wireless mode concept, which has lately gained a popularity among the gaming mice industry.
Logitech G703 offers all the possible high-end features that you can get from a gaming mouse and it comes with a pretty optimum price tag for all these features that it offers. Let's explore what Logitech G703 is all about!!
General Design and Difference Between Previous Models
Logitech G703 is made out of smooth and semi-soft materials which feel great under your palm. Sides of it are made of a soft touch material, which feels rubbery, and the middle part, which stands right under your palm, is made out of soft matte plastic material.
Logitech G703 is designed pretty durable and robust, just as any other Logitech G Series mouse. Every other Logitech Gaming Mouse that I've used has never let me down and the same goes for G703. Material quality is TOP-NOTCH and it feels AMAZING under my palm.
Now, let's talk about the main differences between G703 and other lower models, the G403 and G603. They share the EXACT SAME design patterns, but the difference is highly appreciable when it comes to technical features. These are the features that G703 has but the lower models are absent of:
- Powerplay Wireless Charging System
- White Color Option
- Increased Click Durability
Else of these features, they're pretty much the same. If you want longer click lifespans, a white color option, and a wireless charging ability, then you may prefer getting a Logitech G703. If you are not willing to pay $83.99 for a mouse, then you can check out the Logitech G403 and 603 models which carry the same design patterns and
Custom Ergonomics / ESports Oriented Design
Logitech G703 carries the new custom ergonomic design patterns of the latest Logitech GX03 series and it's AWESOME!! The design is crafted out with an ESports-oriented approach and it can be evaluated as the "one size fits all model". Logitech has been one of the companies which craft out the BEST designs and the most quality peripheral builds. Just as always, Logitech hasn't let me down.
Here are the dimensions for you to evaluate:
- Height: 4.88 in (124 mm)
- Width: 2.68 in (68 mm)
- Depth: 1.69 in (43 mm)
It's not an ENORMOUS mouse, but it has just about the right dimensions to perfectly fit any gamer with hand sizes within the average human-standards diapozone. Every gamer can find a sweet spot on it, no matter if they have small or relatively large hands. It fits my hand with a natural claw grip, which is my favorite grip type. It can also be used as a palm grip mouse pretty easily.
If you have small hands you will be pretty comfortable with a palm grip on Logitech G703. If you have large hands which don't fit average human standards, then you can use it as a fingertip grip mouse too!!
The design patterns of Logitech G703 can be perceived as "universal design" patterns, which is also practiced by the gaming mouse giant Razer. G703 has that slight curve on the left side right under your lower thumb. The whole mouse is tweaked with these little strategical curves which provide your hand a great fit and optimized rest to support you during long and intense hours of adrenaline gaming.
I'm pretty satisfied with the ergonomics, they're GREAT and crafted to fit everyone. This feature reminds me of the signature Razer Deathadder Elite gaming mouse, which has been implementing the same gaming mouse design practices throughout its life. Both of these mentioned babies carry the same concept and they're AWESOME in all technical aspects!!
Dual Wired/Wireless Mode - Battery Life
Logitech seems to have adapted itself to the latest trends in the gaming mouse industry. Dual Wired/Wireless mode is the shiftable design which has become popular lately and many gaming mouse manufacturers implement this design. It allows you to benefit from advantages of both wired and wireless mice.
Just by plugging the USB to the front of your Logitech G703, you will be able to instantly switch from wireless to wired mode. This comes in pretty handy when you're gaming on wireless mode but running low on battery. Now your gaming experience is UNCUT and you don't have to exit your game just because you have to leave your mouse to charge.
If you're a fan of wireless gaming, then just pull the plug out and voila! You have a wireless mouse!! If you are not a fan of wires at all, finding out that Logitech G703 supports the Powerplay Wireless Charging System would be a game changer for you!! We will talk about this feature later.
Battery life of Logitech G702 is pointed out as 24 hours with a full charge if you're using the default lights. That's a good lifespan for a wireless mouse. 32 hours of battery life is estimated with a full charge if you're not using the RGB lights and that's a pretty decent number if you ask me. When you are low on battery, just plug in the USB and you're good to go.
Powerplay Wireless Charging Technology
What if I said that you don't need a cable to charge your gaming mouse?? Well, that's a reality now... Logitech G703 supports Powerplay Wireless Charging Technology, which reminds us the Mamba Hyperflux wireless charging gaming mouse. With the Logitech Wireless Charging Technology, you don't have to give up on your wireless gaming experience!!
In order to use the Powerplay Technology, you need the Logitech Powerplay gaming mouse pad, which can be bought as a bundle with the G703 gaming mouse included. I will provide you the necessary links down below in the "Where To Buy It From??" Section. You can scroll down to the section if you're impatient on buying the G703 🙂
Gaming Grade Performance / 8 Times Faster
There's no doubt that Logitech manufactures mice that perform outstandingly, and as a previous Logitech user, I APPROVE this proposition. I don't know if G703 performs actually 8 times faster or better than other gaming mice out there, because there are pretty DECENT gaming mice which compete head to head with Logitech when it comes to performance, but I can assure you that Logitech G703 (and other high-end Logitech G series mice) perform KICKASS!!
When all the top-notch sensor and transmission technology, durable and high-quality design, fine-tuned buttons and custom engineered user experience are taken into consideration, Logitech definitely performs WAY better than conventional gaming mice. With the improved engineering standards and updated mouse lineup, Logitech is promising a great boost in your competency and that's why it's one of the choices of many ESports professionals.
I have no doubt of the quality and performance of Logitech G703. It's GREAT!!
Lightspeed Wireless Technology
Logitech G703 is equipped with the latest developed wireless transmission technology of Logitech: "Lightspeed Wireless Technology"... It's the result of meticulous circuit and data transmission design engineering, a field where Logitech rivals with its biggest guns.
Lightspeed is born as a result of re-designing every component inside the Logitech gaming peripherals in order to increase the data transfer speed and quality. One step and one bit at a time, Logitech improved their hardware and firmware slowly and patiently to obtain this BADASS wireless technology, which is claimed to be faster than most wired gaming mice (and in fact it is).
Every circuit board element, every bend in an antenna, every protocol and every algorithm is simulated, prototyped and tested in order to develop a better and better result. Here are the own words of Logitech describing their concept behind the Lightspeed Wireless Technology:
Our engineers enhanced the slowest component, then the next slowest, then the next … until nothing was slow.
The robustness and quality of this technology are tested and approved by several ESports professionals such as Autimatic (Cloud9, CS:GO), Bjergsen (Team SoloMid, LoL) and Tucks (Chiefs eSports Club, CS:GO). These guys are the ones who depend on milliseconds.
So, lightspeed wireless technology ensures that we get the same performance of wired mice, or even better, while we're enjoying the comfort of wireless dimensions.
Buttons and Durability
Logitech G703 is a pretty simplistic mouse when it comes to buttons. It offers 6 completely programmable buttons and this amount is probably just about enough for most gamers.
These buttons are:
- Right Click / Left Click
- Two thumb buttons
- Scroll Wheel
- DPI Button
The placement of buttons is strategical and well-balanced. I didn't have any issues pressing the buttons and they were so easy to reach. The side buttons work like a charm and they're placed gently on the slight curve right under your thumb.
DPI button is a little harder to reach and I recommend assigning only DPI shift or other types of commands that you don't use frequently. But it works like a charm 🙂
And the scroll wheel... It hosts a different design which may make you feel like you're in the movie "Tron". The line passing through the middle is also an RGB lighting zone and you can adjust it through the Logitech Gaming Software to light up with your chosen color.
The scroll steps are well balanced and the ribbed design of the scroll wheel feels great when scrolling. I don't even have to mention that it looks pretty cool 🙂
The right and left clicks are equipped with the Advanced Button Tensioning system, which keeps the click buttons primed to click with little metal springs. The Advanced Button Tensioning System reduces the force needed to apply to clicks and this way you'll be getting faster responses and as a result, you'll be increasing your in-game agility.
Weight Adjustment, Cable, and Internals
Logitech G703 comes with a weight adjustment feature. It's not as detailed or enriched as the SteelSeries Rival 600's weight system, but it still has an option for gamers who prefer heavier mice. Logitech G703 weights 107 grams, and I think it's the OPTIMUM weight for a performance gaming mouse, but you can add 10 grams of weight by placing the weight plate into the magnetic weight socket under the Logitech G703. This way, you can choose between gaming with a mouse which weights 107 grams or 117 grams.
Cable is 6.0 ft (1.83m) long and it's just as enough to support all your needs. It's a braided durable .cable, which I find very high in quality. But the best news is, Logitech G703 comes with a WIRELESS EXTENSION ADAPTER. This way, you can elongate your wireless distance by plugging in your Lightspeed Wireless Nano Receiverç into the adapter. This way you can expand your wireless distance to probably 4 meters without any hassle.
Now, let's talk a little bit about the base of Logitech G703. At the base of G703, there are 2 things that attract our attention the most. It's the on/off switch and the magnetic weight plate slot. The base is not that enriched with many buttons and slots, and I can comfortably say that it draws a quite simplistic picture when you look at it.
The feet are also radially designed and there is no "mecha space shuttle" style mouse feet design pattern, which is usually implemented in high-end gaming mice. It's not a problem for me, they work pretty fine and the PTFE mouse feet work great. They're also pretty durable and estimated to last 250 kilometers, pretty impressive...
The on/off switch is executing a pretty obvious task. It turns the mouse on and off 🙂 But there's a nice detail about the on/off switch. When you turn on your G703 the RGB lighting zones will indicate how much charge is left with specific colors. Green color will light when the charge is above %60, yellow between %60-40, and red below %20. A fine detail if you ask me.
The only thing that I didn't like about the base and the internals is that it doesn't have any USB slot to insert the nano lightspeed wireless receiver. It means that you will have to carry the USB slot around and be aware all the time not to lose it. Some mobile mice such as Logitech MX Anywhere have a USB slot inside the mouse to carry it wherever you go.
It would have been better if Logitech also included this detail in G703 because this prevents lost USBs and I personally know that a lost USB can become quite a pain in the arse... But it's you to decide whether it's a major absence or not much of an important detail.
Technical Side of Things
The PMW 3366 Sensor
Logitech G703 uses one of the BEST optical sensors ever made available to gamers' use. That's why it's one of the few choices of ESports professionals and competitive gamers who rely on milliseconds and pin-point-precision. This is where PMW 3366 optical sensor comes into the bigger picture...
The fast-paced environment of professional competitive gaming is an unforgiving platform where gamers sometimes win or lose critical matches in a matter of milliseconds and a couple of pixels. This is the case mostly with FPS/RPG/SHOOTER genres and competitions of them such as CS:GO, Overwatch, PUBG and etc... PMW 3366 is the sensor of choice of Logitech to prevent all these minor issues which can eventually lead to bigger disappointments.
Here you can see the overall sensor test of PMW 3366 with various mice that it's installed with.
PixArt PMW 3366 is considered one of the BEST optical sensors by many gamers and crowds due to its high end tracking features it provides. It's the result of Logitech / PixArt collaboration and it offers you ZERO sensor acceleration, ZERO smoothing or filtering and ZERO pixel rounding within the 200 - 12,000 DPI range that it provides.
As a person who has tried several Logitech G series mice throughout the time, I can assure you that it ACTUALLY delivers the EXACT performance that it promises. I didn't have any issue with the sensor and it worked like a BADASS!!! I don't have to talk much about the sensor, it's definitely one of the best optical sensors that you can find and it has dozens of awesome comments about it.
Logitech G703 offers you 5 levels of shiftable DPI in the 200 - 12,000 DPI range and 5 levels of DPI is more than enough for probably any gamer. Personally, I use only 3 of them. And you can also adjust the polling rate by choosing from 4 different values which are 150 / 250 / 500 / 1000. I prefer using 1000 Hz polling rate, but there isn't a significant difference between 500 and 1000 Hz.
Lightspeed Wireless Technology
I've talked about it before, but I wanted to include in the "Technical Side" section too. The wireless technology of Logitech, which goes by the name Lightspeed Wireless, is AWESOME!! It's one of the BEST wireless mice (or wired?) that I've ever used and I can comfortably say that it's even BETTER than most of the wired mice that I used before...
That's actually what Logitech promises. Lightspeed Wireless Technology is claimed to be faster and more accurate than many other gaming mice. Now that the technology has taken a leap, it's not fiction anymore and it actually performs just as it promises. Lightspeed Technology is the result of long and patient engineering practices which involves the improvement of every single detail from the sensor to the transmitter.
It works great and the only time that it may start behaving strangely is when you take your G703 away too distant from the receiver. It will hold up nicely in a range, probably 4 meters, but there's a fact that ANY wireless device will have a hard time when you carry them too far away from the receiver. Else of that, it performs GREAT!!
I haven't seen this much of a quality wireless connection. Logitech is the BEAST when it comes to making durable and kickass gaming mice with this kind of ultra high -end features. Logitech never disappoints me...
Logitech G703 uses Logitech Gaming Software to customize the hell out of it. You don't need to have the software in order to use your G703, but you must use it to customize your buttons, settings, profiles, and lights. It's compatible with both Mac and Windows, so Mac users aren't left out of the game. It's a great plus!!
You can assign any kind of macros and special commands to ALL the buttons. Logitech Gaming Software enables you to customize the buttons to suit even your most complex gaming needs.
You can choose from 16.8 million RGB colors to light up your illumination zones, which are the scroll wheel and the Logitech ogo right under your palm. You can switch off these lighting zones if you want to increase your battery life or if you're not a fan of RGB lights. The brightness and rate of the lighting zones are adjustable through the software.
You can assign several different RGB lighting animations to the illumination zones. The animations aren't so rich in numbers - there are 2 lighting animations you can assign: Breathing Light and Color Cycle. That's not a problem for me, I don't look for a ton of RGB animations in a gaming mouse, but Razer is WAY BETTER when it comes to those mesmerizing light animations with around 5 of them offered to you.
The great thing about Logitech G703 is that you can sync the illumination animations instantly with other Logitech peripherals you have. This way you'll be instantly creating a mesmerizing light show if you're using several Logitech gaming peripherals.
Automatic Game Detection is one of the features that I like the most about Logitech Gaming software. By assigning your created profile to a specific game of your choice, your Logitech G703 will automatically switch to the settings which you've determined for that specific game.
As an example, you've created an Overwatch profile with all the custom button macros and lighting effects and DPI levels and etc... No matter even if you're not using that profile when you're not gaming, G703 will automatically switch to your Overwatch profile when you launch Overwatch. This is a GREAT feature that will come in handy for ANY gamer.
You can either choose to game with profiles created on your computer through Logitech Gaming Software, or you can also store these profiles inside your Logitech G703 if you're traveling with your mouse and don't want to give up on your settings. You can assign a button of G703 as a profile switch button if you're not using the game detector and by clicking that button you can switch between those specific on-board profiles.
You can assign a color to each profile from the RGB spectrum and when you switch through your on-board profiles the RGB zones will light up with that chosen color of the profile. This way you'll know which profile you're using at the moment.
Where To Buy It From??
The BEST place to buy it is from Amazon due to the lowest prices, amazing retail service, and great customer care. It's available for $83.99 at the moment (the last time I checked) and it's a pretty reasonable price for a masterpiece like this. I think it's the OPTIMUM price that you can pay for a decent gaming mouse which will become your ultimate gaming weapon for a long long time.
