  • You are better using it on smooth surfaces not hard

Logitech G903

  • It comes with an optional 10-gram weight in case you prefer a heavier mouse
  • You can’t beat the battery life
  • It’s super-fast

Cons:

  • It doesn’t feel as solid as the Logitech G900

The Final Verdict

Logitech has excelled with its gaming mouses. The Logitech G900 and the Logitech G903 are both incredibly fast and precise and it is understandable why professional gamers choose them. The Logitech Gaming Software is brilliant, easy to use and allows to customize either mouse to your preferences. It’s true that we noticed the battery life to be a little shorter once we used the RGB lighting, but it wasn’t enough to stop us from using it.

In terms of design, there was not enough of a difference to base our decision. They are ideal for left and right-handed users and we felt the shape was very comfortable even after hours of use. The right and left clicks were a little smoother with the Logitech G900. This, along with the better quality gave it an advantage.

On the other hand, the wireless charging pad with the Logitech G903 was amazing. You literally never have to worry about your battery life and can stay focused on the game. The question is whether it is worth the money. The Logitech G903 is already more expensive than the Logitech G900, plus you have to buy the Powerplay pad separately. When you add it up, it’s more than double the price. For this reason, we decided that the Logitech G900 was the better gaming mouse. 32 hours is still an incredibly long time for a gaming mouse of this quality.
