We were quite fond of Logitech’s G302 released last November, but noticed it was lacking a technical punch when compared to its bigger brethren, such as the G502 Proteus Core. Apparently it was common feedback posed to Logitech from the pro eSports community too, who liked the symmetrical design of the G302 but wanted a little more precision. Answering that concern today is the newly announced G303.
Named the Daedalus Apex (which doesn’t just sound like the name of a spaceship, but even becomes a spaceship in the promotional video above), the G303 is incredibly similar in design to its predecessor but features the advanced optical sensor of the G502. The sensor minimises mouse acceleration, giving users improved accuracy and precision as well as a huge DPI range that stretches from 200 all the way up to 12,000 with zero smoothing. It can also track movement at 300 inches per second, with the optical sensor tuning to whatever surface you’re swiping across.
“The community sent us a clear message that they wanted the lightweight, symmetrical design of our G302 combined with the amazing sensor in our G502,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of the Logitech gaming business. “We took this feedback and built a mouse that was tuned and tested by pros to help ensure improved accuracy, comfort and performance. Thanks to you and this feedback, we’ve built an amazing product.”
If you liked the specs on the G502 but were held back by a crippling case of left-handedness, the G303 could be the gaming mouse for you. Expect to see it hit our shores this month with an RRP of £59.99.
