Logitech g300s Gaming Mouse Review

Well hello there everyone how are you doing today? I am great because we are talking about computer gear and any day I am doing that is a great day! Today’s subject matter will be the Logitech g300s which is in Logitech’s lower echelon of gaming mice but can be seen as good good bang for buck item that suits both right and left handers. Hopefully I can help you decide if this mouse is the right one for you.

With a low price point this mouse could be in the running for best mouse under $30. To compare to another budget gaming mouse check out this review I recently wrote about the Redragon m601. Moving on to the meat and potatoes of this article…

Here is my Logitech g300s Gaming Mouse Review

 

Product: Logitech G300s Optical Gaming Mouse (910-004360)

Price: $29.99

Best Place to Buy: Amazon.com

My Personal Ranking: 85/100

 

Logitech g300s Gaming Mouse Review

My initial thoughts about this optical gaming mouse are that it is fairly visually appealing with a solid yet sleek body that is designed to look and feel good. I also know these g-mice are designed to work well with the Logitech g-keyboards so take a look at my Logitech g105 Gaming Keyboard Review for a possible awesome pairing.

I am wondering if what you would be planning on using this gaming mouse for. Whether it is for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Dota 2, Minecraft, World of Warcraft, Fallout 4 or maybe you are just looking for a decent mouse to use for video/photo editing.

Whatever it is for, we are having fun, and that is all that counts! Right now I have only been able to make time for a little League of Legends but I am looking at getting into some Fallout 4. I am curious what PC games you are into at the moment and what gaming PC build you are running. Drop me a comment at the bottom of this page about it if you like :).

 

How fast is this bad boy?

 

We are looking a 250-2500(maximum) DPI for the Logitech g300s. Now this is only 500 more then the Redragon m601 that I referenced before but for the extra money I think you do get a little nicer overall quality mouse out of the Logitech. HOWEVER Logitech does make a gaming mouse that goes up to 12,000 DPI!!!!

For most all of your casual to mid range gaming experiences you will be just fine with the 2500 DPI. On top of this you get a 1-millisecond report rate that amounts to roughly 8 times faster then a standard USB mouse.

 

Button Layout 9x

It is interesting that this mouse has all of its 9 buttons on the top face of the body. This could be the one small downfall to this setup. I am personally used to a 6 button mouse that has the two on the side that I have grown pretty comfortable with using.

That being said it is cool there are 9 ‘G’ buttons and they are all fully programmable. Setup a slew of keybindings and macros all usable at the convenient click of your mouse and even take them strait off of your G Series Logitech keyboard.

 

What Is a Smart Mouse?

 

Well this is my pet name or term for a couple of features this mouse carries. The first being that you can actually change the LED color that shines through the mouse. That means depending on your mood or even your settings you could have a red, blue, green or whatever color mouse you feel at the time. Pretty cool.

The second caveat of this smart mouse is the ability to program and save your button layout profiles within the actual mouse itself. So you can save them, unplug the mouse, travel with it and even plug it into another computer and it should remember your settings. Now that is what I can a SMART mouse! haha

 

It’s My Hot Body I Do What I Want!

Logitech boasts a very durable body on this mouse capable of your heavy usage and long hours of mid night gaming. It should be able to withstand rapid clicking during your 150 APM Starcraft matches.

…I wish!

The other thing that helps performance here are the polytetrafluoroethylene feet on the bottom of the mouse designed to reduce friction and provide a smooth glide on the mouse pad.

 

Software

 

When you want to configure and change your settings you will be using Logitech’s easy gaming software. All you have to do is drag and drop so do not fret even a newbie can figure this thing out. More information about this can be found at the Logitech Gaming Software page.

 

Warranty

 

It is nice to know that a company will stand by their product and a warranty helps you realize this. The Logitech g300s comes with a standard 2-year limited hardware warranty. I think this is long enough. Heck for me 1 year would be enough but that is because #1 I don’t break mice very often and #2 If I did it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to have to go get an upgrade. For those who do care the 2 years is great!

Concluding Thoughts

 

Logitech g300s Gaming Mouse Review

First off I’d like to say thank you for taking the time to check out my Logitech g300s Gaming Mouse Review. I think I really dig this mouse for $29.99 and it’s a really good gaming mouse for under $30. If this is within your price range I would give it a shot for sure but at the end of the day my friend only you can decide. The good news is whether you get this mouse or another you are still buying gear for your PC and that doesn’t suck at all. Stay awesome!

 

What did you think of this Logitech mouse? Have you ever used their brand before and what for? Let me know what you think! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop me one anytime at the very bottom of this page. Likes, shares, tweets and +1’s are greatly appreciated as well.

    I love my G300S. As a claw-gripper I find the buttons well within easy reach. It’s also as light as a feather (about 75 grams) which is also perfect for claw/fingertip gripsters.

    The ‘profile per game’ feature which comes as standard with the Logitech software is also a godsend and totally brilliant.

    The only negative is the scroll wheel click…which is a firm press ‘thunk’ button instead of the ‘tick’ you get from the rest of the buttons.

    • HI Maxim!

      It is great to get your insight here because I do not utilize a claw grip myself. Awesome that you like your G300s and I can see what your saying about the scroll button. Minor bummer but not too bad. Really appreciate your comment!

      Talk to you soon,

    Logitech has really upped their game in mouse and keyboard categories.
    The G300 seems a pretty good gaming mouse at around #30.I love that its a smart mouse and the color changing feature is really cool.
    I have a question, what kind of batteries does it use and how long do they last?

    • Anthony

      Hello Ankit,

      Thank you for reading my review I hope I was able to help out. The good news is this mouse doesn’t require batteries it just plugs into the USB port on your computer directly. Let me know if you have further questions regarding this mouse or anything else!

      Thanks again,

    Hi Anthony,
    That was a great review on the Logitech G300 gaming mouse for the pc. I am not so sure it was a good for them to have the nine buttons up top like that, honestly think they should have spaced out some on the sides or something. Other than that I like ow you can change the color of the mouse to whatever like on the fly. Do you only do articles specifically for accessories for gaming?
    Yours Truly,
    Carlton

      Carlton how goes it?

      Interesting thought about the buttons. I suppose it’s for some people and not for others. Kind of a personal preference thing cause I thought it’s kinda cool haha. I am focusing mostly on gaming accessories with some other fun projects mixed in as well.

      Thanks bud,

    Anthony,

    Great review of the Logitech G300s gaming mouse. As much as I can remember I have only used Logitech mice with my PCs — they’re among the best, if not the best, mice manufacturers. I once used a mouse similar to this one, and currently I am in fact using a G-series mouse.

    I see that the G300s has really great ratings, and the affordable price point is a big plus.

    I’m not looking for a new mouse at the moment, but when I’m in the market I’ll be sure to give this one a closer look. Thanks.

    • Anthony

      Hello Paul,

      Your right about Logitech they do make some pretty awesome products and this one is rated well. I appreciate your comment and if you have any further questions just let me know!

      Thanks again,

    • Anthony

      Hello Ananomyx,

      Not a problem at all I am 100% happy to help. I hope you do have time to check out some of my other reviews and if you ever have any questions just drop me another comment!

      Thanks again,
