Comments / reviews:
Probably can't get much better than this for the price. Tracking is accurate, clicks feel solid, scroll wheel is a BIT too rigid for my taste but seems reliable (no missed scrolls etc...). Time will tell if the scroll wheel actually lasts or breaks after a year like on a lot of budget mice.

The breathe LED lighting looks nice, but can easily be customized (or disabled if you don't like LEDs like me)

My favorite thing about this mouse is that the size/shape is perfect for someone with small hands - not too big, not too small.Very comfortable to use.

Really my only complaint is the mouse feet. Now they are smooth, the mouse glides nicely etc.. however:

On mine, several of the feet were applied crooked and not totally in the slot where the foot should go. Kind of disappointing when the build quality of the rest of the mouse was nice (and obviously ymmv here I might have just been unlucky)

Also my other concern is that I've had issues with these type 'sticker' mouse feet in the past, where they inevitably fall off (*cough MX518 cough*). I just got this mouse so time will tell here, but I much prefer mice that have the hardier, large plastic glide pads (e.g. Razor Deathadder, Corsair M45). I've never had a mouse with that style of mouse-feet where the feet fell off.

If you’re in the market for an entry-level gaming mouse, look no further, this is the mouse for you. Trust me. Whether for you or someone else you can’t go wrong with this mouse. I decided to create a huge review guide for people like me who just absolutely need to see detailed reviews before they pull the trigger on the product. Below is a pros and cons list and below that is a detailed paragraph about this mouse if you’re a reader :-)

Pros

- RGB Lighting (And not some solid color BS, like 12.8 million colors breathing effects type of stuff)
- Depressed Area Left and Right click, helps keep your grip on the mouse (picture for example)
- Smooth design and texture great for claw holders
- 8000 dpi sensor with ability to change in increments of 50 (7950, etc.)
- DPI Button with up to 4 on-the-fly dpi changes (also can be programmed to a key)
- 2 custom buttons both on the inside of the mouse (more on that below)

Meh (Opinion)

- No Braided Cable (they fray)

Cons

- Worst scroll wheel I have ever seen in my life
- Cable is a tad bit short

The G203 Prodigy is hands down the best gaming mouse at this price point. The RGB lighting alone makes this mouse worth it considering the price point because a lot of good quality mice out there comprise the RGB lighting for functionality. Logitech did not compromise on this AT ALL boasting a full 16.8 million colors with color effects such as breathing and fading into other colors, much more than the old bs “RGB mice” that just have 1 solid color with an on and off switch (*cough Steelseries cough*). All you have to do is download the software from the website by searching “G203 Prodigy Software” and you’re good. Moving on, the dips in the mouse on the left and right clicks are amazing. It helps you keep your fingers gripped on the mouse when you click and move it around. After I used this mouse because my old gaming mouse without that feature shorted out, I just couldn’t go back. Must have on any gaming mice IMO, even if you don’t get this one. Additionally this mouse has a pretty smooth design and decent texture for your hands, I’ve had some that have felt better but not bad. The 8000 DPI sensor is also extremely good at this price point, it’s very accurate, and can be adjusted in increments of 50 (I know this sounds stupid but some mice don’t even have this precision, the Steelseries Kana v2 I had before only adjusted in increments of 400 which is absolutely terrible btw, don’t buy that mouse) which is huge. There’s also a DPI button and 2 custom mappable buttons which is pretty standard. This mouse has a rubber cable which I like but some people like braided ones (they look nice but are meh).

Every mouse isn’t perfect though but this one comes pretty close. The only big problem with this mouse is the GOD AWFUL scroll wheel. If you use the scroll wheel regularly, this is a HUGE drawback. Scrolling is somewhat clunky and the texture feels very uncomfortable so if you are a person using their scroll wheel every 5 minutes, I would have to tell you this may not be the mouse for you. Luckily I don’t use the scroll wheel that much. Lastly is the cable is a tad short but will be fine for 99% of you as long as you’re by your computer at a reasonable distance.

I hope this helps you guys make a great choice on the mouse to get, I would highly recommend you to grab this mouse if you haven’t already. See you on the battlefield!

Scored 107+kpm in CSGO, much quicker than my 125 gram g502 it's just not quick enough. But I score the same with both. Rail shots in QUAKE 3 are just super accurate. Love this mouse.

Left mouse click is considerably louder than the original "Blue striped" g502 The new g502's have the same click as this one.

Good mouse. The only reason I'm rating it 4 stars instead of 5, is because the shape is a little weird and hard to get used to. If you're coming from a deathadder it's gonna take some time to get used to it. It's a weird diamond shape, that's a little small.
The logitech software is great, and I found it better than the Razer Synapse software. Comes with a long cable, and some programable buttons on the side and top of the mouse.
If you are planning on butterflying clicking with this, I wouldn't pick up this mouse. I would get the deathadder chroma. This mouse does double click sometimes. I'm only able get a max of 15CPS with this mouse. However it is very sturdy, looks good, and is easy to click on. Would recommend!

Absolutely blown away by this mouse. Is this thing even worth $20? Haha. It says a lot when this is half the price of the SteelSeries Rival 110 and still feels and performs way better.

Anyways, going over the design, its what Rocket Jump Ninja calls it, a "safe shape" meaning it's a generic shape that should work with all grip styles depending on your hand size. I have relatively small hands and I can claw, palm and fingertip it easily. It's design is heavily based around the G100S, which isn't a bad thing. So it is ambidextrous but you only have side buttons on the left side of the mouse. You still have your right and left click, scroll wheel, scroll click and a DPI button which feels and sounds very satisfying.

The microswitches are fabulous. They are Omron switches and are very easy to click but no accidental clicks... I'm looking at you Deathadder 2013. Anyways, nice and tactile. They also work very well for Minecraft PVP.

The sensor is amazing. Its Logitech's Mercury sensor, couldn't find much info on it but its amazing. I can't tell the difference in performance between this, a G502 and a Deathadder Elite. Tracks pixel by pixel, very accurate, no spinning out.

Now, what the lighting? You have the option for 16.8 Million colors. The LED's are very bright and vibrant. You have a strip going from left to right at the back hump and the Logitech G logo. Unfortunately, it's one zone lighting meaning if you set the logo to a certain color, the strip will change as well. Not game breaking though.

The software? The software is amazing. It's like Corsair Utility Engine and Razer Synapse came together. It has a friendly user interface like Razer Synapse, with the stability of Corsair Utility Engine.

This or the G Pro? I would go with this. The main differences between this and the G-Pro are: The G-Pro has a PMW3366 (The Mercury Sensor performs really close), the G Pro has a braided cable, which I prefer the rubber cable on the G203 as the G-Pro cable can some resistance and the G-Pro has tighter buttons. Overall, I would go for this. G502 performance for $30. Highly recommended.

Let me start off by saying I'm new to PC gaming but have heard really good things about Logitech. I wasn't trying to buy the most flashiest mouse with crazy buttons or anything crazy. I wanted a simple mouse for a simple/new PC gamer. I will say I love this mouse, it's not to heavy but not light. I like that because having a light mouse for me wasn't cutting it. I like how you can download the Logitech gaming software and liked how you can edit the mouse and adjust the dpi. Thought that was really cool. I took some time using it before writing a review. The reason I gave it a 4 is because sometimes the left button acts a little odd. Not sure if it's because the game i'm playing is being weird but it sometimes won't fire. For instance I play Fortnite and when using a shotgun it sometimes won't fire. I could be wrong and it could be me that isn't pressing hard enough but I'm not sure. I will further test it and if i am wrong i will put it to a five star. Thank you Logitech, love the mouse

I bought this mouse on Black Friday to replace an old Razer mouse where the light couldn't be turned off. Plus this mouse had three extra buttons.

To get to why I really like this mouse is its modularity when you take it apart. Be aware that taking apart your mouse will void the warranty so do so at your own risk. Since I bought this for $19.99 I figured it was worth the risk for what I wanted to do.

My main issue with this mouse was the texture of the scroll wheel. It was a bit much compared to my old mouse. So, I decided to open it up and see if I could replace it with a scroll wheel from an old Logitech wireless mouse. Unfortunately, the parts weren't interchangeable so I had to do something else. I ended up taking it out and sanding it down to my liking. It took a little while but it was worth it for me.

To get into the mouse all you have to do is unscrew three screws and you're in. Inside there are two things that you can modify: the mouse wheel and the cord. If you don't like the cord and that it does not have a braided sleeve like its more expensive cousin (G403 pro), you can take the old one out and replace it with a braided sleeve, but it is not directly compatible so you would have to do some soldering. You can purchase this cable directly from Logitech for $10. If you're tech savvy and want a fun little project, modifying this mouse could be for you.

Overall this is a quality mouse for the price in my opinion. It is simple and it doesn't have the gamer aesthetic and built in a way that leaves the door open for some little mods. But just like with keyboards and key switches, everyone has their own preferences so I'd suggest going to a store and testing out the options before making a purchase.

Pictures:
The picture of the bottom of the mouse shows the screw locations. The parts that are lifted up have screws underneath them.
The picture of the inside is exactly that, the inside.

I selected this mouse because of two reasons, I wanted an RGB mouse, and I wanted a fingertip grip mouse. I had tried other the more expensive mouses, and was coming from a Razer Naga MMOG that had dying buttons, and found they aren't really made for my kind of grip. They were big bulky things that made me feel like I was trying to push a boat around my mousepad. This mouse suits me well, is very light and is nice and responsive.
Some not so great things, but not deal breakers:
It doesn't come with any instructions, so I had to figure out that I needed to download software from logitech's site to control the lighting. Most people I'm sure can figure this out, but something a little off putting about just getting a mouse with nothing else in the mail.
There aren't any zones for the lighting, the lights are either this color or that, on or off, there's no changing the logo separate from the little band underneath it, which brings me to my biggest pet-peev.
Why do all manufactures insist on making their logos so garishly bright and in your face on all the mouses?? I mean, I know WHY, they're trying to sell product, but it's sooo obnoxious, and ALL manufacturers do it. Ugh it's annoying. Yes, my hand covers it while I'm using it, but I don't care, when I'm not using it, the mouse is all "hey, Hey, HEY!!!! I'm a LOGITECH mouse!!!!!" all the time.
The only manufacturers that I've seen do this logo thing o.k. is Razer, because they let me turn the logo light off separate from the other lights, and the logo disappears into the background. However, I just didn't like the feel of their mouse quite as much as the Logitech.
So in summary, I like this mouse, it has some downsides, but not enough for me not to recommend it for fingertip grip users.

I don't like the small flat or overly ergonomic mice that are common out there. I really appreciate a quality sensor and a solid but basic build. It is also a plus for me to be able to switch hands with this mouse since I work all day on a PC and keeping my wrists healthy is a major concern. The Lights are a neat plus and choosing a color or one of the effects certainly is a surprise at the price point. It does not have an option to unlock the wheel for a free spinning mode that can be nice in long documents or code projects but the ability to change DPI is yet another nice to have that impresses in a fairly cheap mouse. Maybe not the best for hardcore gamers but a solid option for most mixed use needs.

pros:

- $25-30 for a genuinely RGB mouse (not just with some RGB portions but other lights are locked to specific colors to indicate DPI profile), especially one that comes in white, is a phenomenal deal. i'd been looking high and low for a mouse to match my PC build, which is white with light purple lighting, and was getting ready to admit that i'd probably have to shell out $60+ for one, but logitech really delivered here.

- i actually enjoy the logitech software! i've never been a huge macro user, but the program makes it easy to create them and swap them out on the fly with different profiles per game so i'm actually using them a lot more now. it's a huge quality of life improvement.

- i use a tip grip style, and this mouse is actually lightweight enough with the buttons well in reach to accommodate that. i've never had a truly comfortable mouse for my grip style until now.

cons:

- i had issues initially with getting it up and running properly. it wanted to update its firmware, so i let it do so, but then the firmware update failed to complete, which temporarily bricked the mouse. troubleshooting in the first 5 minutes of ownership isn't great, but it's especially agitating when you have to navigate google and tech support websites without a mouse.

- the side and scroll wheel buttons take a deceptive amount of force to actuate, and sometimes the side buttons fail to fire. if you're playing a game and have anything important and time-sensitive bound to those buttons, there's a chance you're going to regret it.
