We’ve seen a lot of Logitech gaming mouses, but just few of them could be suitable for playing FPS games like CS:GO, which requires, in first place, high tracking speed, no mouse acceleration, fast response time and comfortability for long intensive gaming sessions. Well, i can say that G303 Apex meets the criteria to be one of the best mouses for CS:GO on the market in that regard.
At first impression, Logitech G303’s shape could seem a little bit odd. Well, it is odd indeed and you might spend few days just to get used to it. It was especially hard for me (currently playing on Razer Deathadder Chroma), to switch and test the G303 properly. Even tho i do not prefer this shape over other mouses for CS:GO, i can say that if you are currently playing, for example, Kana, Sensei, Xai, i guess you wont have hard time to get used to it.
It has nice Lighting which is customisable (16.8milion colors), and nice 1.8m long braided cable. I am not a fan of braided cables. but i guess we cant avoid them.
The G303 doesn’t have additional buttons other than mouse 4 and mouse 5, but in CS:GO why would we need them?! The mouse is really, really good for CS:GO if you get used to it fast. Its not surprise that GeT_RiGhT is playing with it.
Its obvious that Logitech targeted FPS gamers with this product, because they made the perfect, simple mouse with high hardware performance especially for FPS games like CS:GO.
SPECS -PMW3366 sensor -1 millisecond response time -200 – 12,000 dpi -USB report rate: 1000 Hz (1ms) -Max. speed: >300 ips -6 programmable buttons -Programmable RGB Lighting
Testing the Logitech G303 Daedlaus Apex in-game, i couldn’t find any flaw really (aside from the odd shape for me). It has one of the best-responsive switches I’ve played with, and also acceptable lift-off-distance. The sensor (PMW3366) is among the best optical sensors on the market (without mouse acceleration), and it felt like the mouse is connected to my head. All reactions and movements with the G303 are perfect.
However, i felt quite uncomfortable with the gliding, probably because of the shape that the Logitech G303 has.
Speaking of comfortability, i feel like G303 apex is more comfortable for all the claw or fingertip-grippers out there. If you are using claw or fingertip grip, you would get used to this mouse very fast. For palm grip, meh, it could take one week or so to fully “get into the mouse”.
Putting everything into perspective, Logitech G303 Daedlaus Apex is hell of a great mouse. I would rank it easily in top 6 mice for CS:GO and FPS games.
It might take some time to get used to the shape, but the perfection in performance that the G303 is offering is just, well, perfect. As i said, you will feel like the mouse is connected to your brain instead of your PC. I couldn’t feel any delay with the tracking speed and response time. Its also great looking mouse with really superb, elegant illumination.
If you are using fingertip-grip, this is probably the best mouse that you could get which would provide you great comfort, and impeccable sensor performance. It is suitable for claw-grip also, but for palm grip i wouldn’t recommend it. However, Logitech G303 has affordable price, and for sure it’s good mouse to consider
