    Anyone has Logitech G703?


    Link to this mouse:
    Logitech G703 Wireless Gaming Mouse - POWERPLAY Compatible

    If anyone has Logitech G703 mouse I would like to hear if you had any issues with it and how you dealt with them.

    It costs 100 and I regret every euro spent on this piece of crap, I believed I would be getting class A mouse but it's such a hassle to make it work the way you want.

    As soon as I put it on charge for the first time the Logitech G Hub program reported that charging stucked at some fixed percentage while in fact the mouse was 100% charged.
    It took me whole day to figure out I need to reinstall the program on first time use due to a bug.

    When the mouse drains it's battery it's very difficult to notice it, instead mouse put's itself on low battery without letting you know, no taskbar indication, no nothing.
    Biggest problem seems is that you must not let this type of battery go to the zero so I have to keep an eye on battery level all the time to make sure I don't screw it.

    Currently a new issue appeared, when I go away from PC the mouse will put it self to some sort of sleep so that when you move it is barely responsive, it take some 5 seconds for it to become fully responsive.
    I really don't know why, but it seems something with DPI settings.

    Logitech is well known for quality products.
    As always you can have a faulty mouse or a software that needs to be updated.

    I have a Logitech MX that is also an expensive (US$70) mouse and it is 5 years old.
    I had some issues with the right click switch that was bouncing (many clicks). I had to open the mouse and open the small switch to clean it. I happened twice in 5 years.

    Thanks for comment, yes, I'm fan of Logitech too and that's one of the reasons I chose that one.

    It has on-board programable module for settings but I didn't try it yet, I'll experiment with that perhaps it could help to make it instantly responsive on boot.

    Otherwise mouse fits nice into my hand but it's a bit too light, there is a removable barbell but still not heavy enough :/

    I going to be honest. I have given up on mouses all together. I understand people might have a "Half A key-board" setup
    and use an independent mouse but beyond that "anything I have to put a battery in is snake oil". This is my computer mouse
    options for etc.

    "Logitech K400 Plus" wireless keyboard mouse combo via dongle. It keeps going like "die-hard" meets "die-hard" is "die-hard". People see it and think it is the expensive logic-tech Bluetooth ( for android/iOS ) being sold for $200+ but this is a discount board, and my letters are rubbing out. I use this for play, work, and just about everything, with my finger. Trust me best combo ever. Soft, light to the touch I originally purchased this for the living room, but nobody used it so....

    Track-Ball + Half-A-Keyboard. The Track-Ball mouse is the better of the innovators, mine is not wireless but the regular red trackball, with tons of button combos. If there is a wireless one then go for it??? Be aware the ball can fall out. Looking on the
    bottom it is a logitech brand. Could be just about any track mouse. Possibly best mouse for a cramped space without straining
    arm.

    Wacom 440 - is one of the earliest ( and still optimal ) tablet pen and mouse combos. Bare in mind time has taken it's toll on the
    pen but the mouse is perfection. No battery ( but you will need to plug in via usb ) and the mouse is smoothest mouse you will ever use when it comes to a mouse.

    .............................................................
    MOUSES I ADVISE AGAINST.

    Anything Ball. Why? This is not the Amiga SNES SGI generation people. You only have this for nostalgia or personal preference.

    Anything laser. Why? These die over time, and sometimes becomes unresponsive. Okay maybe they have become better over the years but honestly your living in the stone age still. I have laser mice that are detected but making any movement no response. Even the wireless bluetooth kind is a hassle to setup. Yes they have dongle but this is not windows XP people.

    Why no designer mouses? I do not care about design and nonsense like lights or buttons that are mini-displays and feels like human flesh, I care about getting work done and not straining my hand and sanity.

    That is my two cents on mouses.

    Yes I agree, the best mouse is one without any extra fancy keys and one which fits well into your hand.

    What I care the most about mouse is that it must be wireless, a cable mouse is like walking a dog, constantly dragging you around against your will.

    Btw. I figured out my mouse, all I had to do is:
    1. create a new profile
    2. customize profile
    3. assign the profile to on board memory

    Now on system boot I don't have to wait for G Hub to start since all settings are saved to mouse memory directly.

    Why people only read the instructions when everything has failed?

    I guess because people want stuff to "just work"

    I don't have the G703, but I do have the G203 (wired so no battery issues) and it's developed a double clicking issue in the LMB at only 2-3 years old, so beware that also cropping up later! They probably have similar click hardware.

    Despite Logitech's general reliability their newer expensive mice can be a bit wonky at times, it's good your issue was just a thing with GHub!

    Thanks for letting me know, I hope no new issues happen, but 2-3 years is "mid age" for a mouse so it's sad that it's already sick.
    But in general I don't remember any mouse of mine that would last longer than 4 years, perhaps because I used to buy cheap mouse, hopefully this one will last longer.
