Posted by Jeff Lindsey (Piso_mojado), Dec 07, 2011 20:52

If there is one company the manufactures computer mice that has stood the test of time, it is Logitech. I can not honestly say that I don’t remember a time when my family has not had at Logitech G300 gaming mouseleast one piece of Logitech hardware hooked up to our computer. Whether it was a keyboard, trackball, ball mouse, microphone, or even my beloved first laser mouse, Logitech was always there for me. Not only do they make products of incredibly quality, but when something goes wrong they have been there with even better customer support.

Needless to say, when the box showed up containing the Logitech G300 Gaming Mouse, I was excited. I immediately unpacked this mouse, unplugged my currently installed G500 and put the G300 through every test imaginable. Once again, Logitech has delivered another winner.

Logitech G300 Gaming Mouse Design and Size

Both classy and sleek,

G300 in hand

This mouse may not be the best for gamers with large hands or palm grip style.

the G300 is proof positive that good things come in small packages. Ambidextrous by design, the G300 may seem to be on the small side of what gamers are becoming accustomed to seeing.

Being a person with large hands, one might wonder how exactly they are supposed to grasp it.

The G300 is quite comfortable for anyone who plays with a finger tip style grip. Claw grip can be achieved, but requires a little hand maneuvering to find that comfortable sweet spot. Sadly, those who play with a palm grip style will have trouble finding enough mouse on which to rest their hand.

Overall, this mouse is solid. It feels remarkably sturdy and durable. All of the buttons have a life of over 10 million clicks, so you know that the G300 was built to last. To top it all off, the rubberized thumb and pinkie grips provide a superior no-slip grip that will keep even the sweatiest of hands firmly clasped to it.
