Logitech G600 MMO Mouse
On a quick note, I myself have never used any mice other than the generic two-button-and-scroll-wheel mice, so using the G600 MMO mouse bought so much curiosity, intrigue and frustration to the world of mice and computer gaming for me. But the main train of thought I have acquired from using this mouse, is that mice can make a world of difference to which I previously thought wasn’t true due to how well I could game using a standard mouse.
Logitech has bought what I would consider to be its common but functional clean and curved black look to the G600, with the mouse being larger than generic mice im used to, and carrying a bit more weight as well. I found after using it for a short period of time, I quickly became accustomed to this new difference.
Housing 12 macro buttons on the left side of the mouse which can glow different colors or be customized to pulse a certain color, it also has 2 more macros on top and a third click on the right side of the mouse. I didn’t expect I would make too much use of it all, as I haven’t played much in the way of MMO’s in a while but I did end up using nearly every macro on the mouse. Since MMO’s weren’t at my disposal, the main hurdles I put the mouse through were general PC use, some miscellaneous image editing and some vigorous gaming sessions of the likes of Battlefield 3 and League of Legends.
Available in black or white, both of which look great.
The mouse has the ability to hold 3 onboard profiles for different macros and such, with a G-Shift function which is set to the third click, essentially doubling the amount of macros you can have. I myself didn’t make use of the G-Shift function, but I am sure that would be handy for MMO players where macros can be of great use. Of the 3 profiles available, I only made use of two, one which I customized and put to solid usage in Battlefield 3 and general use, and one which I used primarily for League of Legends.
I also made great use of the Custom DPI setting for General image editing and Battlefield 3, where having different sensitivity came in great use when it came to using vehicles, sniping, and general moving around, with each having used different levels of sensitivity which made for a much quicker/accurate response for killing.
Overall I found this mouse very favorable to use over my generic mouse I have, and in fact on the first day with it I got used to it so much, the mouse which I have used for the last few years feels small and uncomfortable to handle.
It was quite comfortable to use over a continued period of time, almost perfectly shaped to have your hand around, with the macros almost perfectly placed where your thumb is. I say almost because I feel the macros could have been done better, as you need to shift your hand to be able to use the front six and the rear 6 sets of macro’s well, which can prove very annoying at times. The only thing I can see improved on this mouse is the way the macros were shaped and placed, everything else is truly spot on.
- Six and a half foot long braided USB cable looks really nice
- Customizable DPI to provide the perfect sensitivity
- Almost no friction when moving the mouse
- Custom lighting on the side of the macros
- The macro placement could be improved
