Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse Review
The Logitech G600 is one of the best gaming mice on the market. If you are looking for a mouse with more programmable buttons than you get, the G600 is worth the $ 80 price tag; even giving accessories from unique game accessory clothing like Razer for their money.
The G600 sports 20 programmable, clear buttons that fall into the “much more” hardware niche occupied by the Naga Razer MMO mouse. These two MMO mice compete with a price of $ 80. If you have never known this particular hardware category, know that MMO gaming mice categorized by a set of 12 buttons mapped to the row of numbers on your keyboard by default, which makes gameplay with Hotkey-weighting on most MMOs is easier on your wrist. (and your brain) by letting you use the mouse for most of your spelling casting.
The G600 has several advantages over competitors, starting with three additional buttons. In addition to the twelve buttons on the right side of the mouse, the left and right mouse buttons, and two extra buttons at the top, the G600 sports an additional button that sits below your pinkie. The G600 registers pushing the mouse wheel left or right in addition to standard button actions when you press the wheel itself.
Although it may be confusing to read, in practice, the extra buttons are very convenient after you spend time with the device. On a mouse that tries to add additional switches to every available surface, it is difficult to find places where users can press it quickly, but somehow Logitech does it with this mouse.
Another big win for Logitech is the software adjustment for the G600. I have never ever been a big fan of Razer competitor Synapse software; it’s not easy to use. It requires you to register with Razer first, but it does provide many customization options that greatly enhance Razer’s peripheral utility. The G600 software cannot match the Razer Synapse software in terms of features, but it is very close and proves to be easier to use.
Although it doesn’t have the Synapse capacity to program complex macros and assign them to various foreign buttons on your mouse, the Logitech driver software allows you to remap every button on the G600 quickly and easily. It also displays some of its tricks, including an automatic detection system that scans your hard drive for compatible games and then automatically changes the mouse layout to give you easy access to use buttons without having to remap the mouse yourself.
Although I cannot test this feature with every compatible game on my drive, the game that I am trying to replace the G600 to the intuitive default button layout, that is not only useful but also faster than the adjustment process for other mice.
While the software is a definite victory for Logitech, the mouse hardware itself has several problems. For starters, like almost every mouse with many of these buttons, many of them are too difficult to reach. The two bottom lines are challenging to reach, and clicking the two buttons under the mouse wheel with your middle finger while maintaining your index finger on the left mouse button requires dehumanizing dexterity.
The mouse will also not win any customers with its ergonomics. I have relatively large hands so that the G600 is uncomfortable for me to use personally, but it’s not hard to imagine users finding it difficult to apply for a long time. Other mice at this price point allow you to adjust the ergonomics to ensure your hands can rest comfortably, but the G600 does not have such features.
Apart from this hardware problem, the G600 is one of the most fun and easily customizable mice I have ever used. If functionality, not ergonomics, is your primary concern and you are looking for a quality MMO mouse, the G600 is a hard mouse to beat.
- Several buttons are difficult to reach.
- Grip is less ergonomic than other, similarly-priced mice.
- Large array of convenient buttons.
- Driver software makes it easy to customize the mouse for individual games
