Logitech is making sure it has something for everyone by adding an entry-level gaming mouse to its peripherals range. In fact, given the credit crunch and all that, it's nice to see a new gaming mouse that costs £30 rather than the £60 to £80 you'd have needed to shell out for a G500 or a G700 when they launched (prices have come down considerably, however). The G300 has a symmetrical design that's suitable for both left- and right-handed users. While symmetrical mice are usually pretty plain affairs—like the excellent SteelSeries Xai—the G300 has uses detail like borders and indentations to liven things up a bit. It also has nine programmable buttons and an LED sensor. While all of that sounds relatively promising, we won't bother wasting any more of your time talking about this mouse. In a nutshell, we don't recommend it. Here's why: - It isn't a comfortable shape. - Buttons that would usually fall under the thumb have been moved onto the top of the mouse and are less easy to access. - The mouse is too light for our linking. - Most of all, the LED sensor can't track fast enough movements to be of interest to gamers. It struggles to keep up as soon as you start moving the mouse at 1.5 metres per second, and cuts out completely if you go above 2 metres per second.
To become a competitive gamer, you must spend big. Right? We're talking the biggest graphics cards, table-sized motherboards, mega-core CPUs, copious amounts of RAM and of course, gaming mice equipped with LCD screens, the brightest LEDs and a CPU in their belly. All that good stuff... right? Wrong. At least, that's Logitech's stance with its G300 gaming mouse, which comes in at a mere $40. Like some offerings that cost twice as much, the G300 aims to deliver an easy-to-use mouse that's packed with potential - and to make sure everyone can take advantage of what it offers, it also features an ambidextrous design. There are few companies as experienced as Logitech where gaming peripherals are concerned, and at one point, the company set the benchmark for what a gaming keyboard or mouse should offer. I still have fond memories of the MX 518, and my recently retired G3 - that one being the original variant of the G300. With all of Logitech's experience, does the G300 become the no-brainer gaming mouse? Let's evaluate that possibility together. Out of the gate, I must mention that the G300 is not for those who can't use (or stand) smaller mice.
The Logitech Gaming Mouse G300 ($39.99 direct) isn't for the hardcore gun slinger. It's more in tune with the casual Call of Duty player, looking for better performance and features than they'd get out of a standard computer mouse. Its budget price tag makes it an easy choice for first-person shooter players on a budget, and gamers that may not appreciate why you would possibly want to spend $129.99 on a gaming mouse like the Razer Mamba (2012) ($129.99 direct, 4 stars). And though its configuration software may look anemic to enthusiasts, beginners and everyday fans of first-person shooters (fps) will find what's included to be enough to cut their teeth on. Undiscriminating against right or left-handed users, the G300 has a symmetrical, ambidextrous design. The top of the mouse has a grey matte finish that's smooth under hand, and doesn't attract stains or smudge marks. The sides have a black rubberized coating to help you get a grip during long or intense gaming sessions. However, nothing beats the smooth soft-touch rubberized plastic on the Gigabyte M8000Xtreme ($59.99 list, 4.5 stars). There's also a glowing line drawn just above the grips, which starts in the middle and stops just as it starts to follow the back curve of the G300.
