I can't even begin to describe how useful this is for me. It has more buttons than I know what to do with, which is a very good thing.

I'm just going to throw this out there, I don't use this mouse for it's intended market. That is, MMOs. I don't play any MMOs. What I /do/ do, is use Blender and Unity in the process of learning to build games. Blender alone has what feels like millions of shortcuts to memorize, and while I've gotten all the main ones down, I like using a normal mouse and a 3D Navigator at the same time. That keeps my hands off the keyboard. Which makes switching between the keyboard, mouse, and 3D Navigator... Annoying. This mouse solves that by keeping a large number of shortcuts in the mouse memory. This saves me time and effort allowing me to keep my hands off the keyboard and still get work done quickly.

I will say, I've found one single downside to this mouse. If I assign a key to a button (like SHIFT) and hold that button down, it doesn't keep the button pushed down in the interface. Holding shift on the keyboard will let me select multiple faces, vertices, or edges. Holding shift on an assigned button on the mouse, does literally nothing. I'd like it if the software let me say that I wanted the button to be held, or maybe gave me a "sticky key" option.

Oh well, minor complaint. Another minor complaint is that the mouse is lightweight. This works fine for when I need to stick it in my laptop bag and don't want a lot of weight, but I tend to prefer weighted mice like the Proteus Core (which I also have, loaded as heavy as it can be), but this is a very minor complaint.

March 2014 Update
- After about 1.5 years I'm having the double click issue. I did a manual repair (bending the spring back) that worked for a few months; but now it is back.
- I've enjoyed this mouse enough, and there is nothing new in the space, so I'll be picking up a second to replace it.

So I have the Razer Naga Epic Gaming Mouse and now this Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, Black (910-002864). How do they compare?

Short version, they are equal mice.
- Pick the Naga if you use the 7-12 keys often in fast high pitched game play.
- - You can reach them faster as you have the muscle memory to hit the right and there is nothing in your way.
- Pick the G600 if you don't use them that often.
- - You can reach them faster as you don't have the muscle memory and the 2nd set of grooves makes it so you don't hesitate before clicking them.

Size:
- They are both the same size with one slight exception, the Naga you place your ring finger next to the mouse and use it as part of your 'grip'.
- The place your finger is on is extended on the G600 to be an actual button your finger rests on.
- THIS is the major 'comfort' difference between the two mice and where I see a lot of complaints.
- For the first hour, I was constantly hitting this key as on my Naga I was use to using this finger as part of my grip.
- After retraining the muscles a little, this is no longer an issue for me and I now have an extra key to actually use.

Thumbpad:
- The G600 is 133% the size of the Naga in Length (or width depending on how you look at it).
- The Width (or length...) is the exact same.
- How does this feel? The Naga is FASTER. The rows are not as far apart and they are flat so its really easy to glide your thumb down and hit the right key.
- The G600 is CONFIDENT... It is much easier to tell where your thumb is, and the way the keys are grooved you have 2 locations for your thumb, one hits 1-6, the other hits 7-12. Due to the spacing, Naga users you can compare this by moving your thumb to the last row (10-12), this is where your thumb will be to hit 7-12 on the G600.
- Verdict? Depends on how many keys you actually use. I use 1-6 A LOT and don't use 7-12 that often. This actually makes the G600 shine as you have less memory of keys you don't use, when I swap to the 7-12 position I don't have to hesitate to hit a key because I KNOW my thumb is on the right one.
- Counter Verdict? The Naga is simply faster. You don't have to get over the grooves and the rows are closer so you can get to 7-12 just as fast as 1-6. It does take more memory though. If you use all 12 keys all the time, the Naga may be the better mouse.

Extra Keys:
- G600 has the ring finger key, the 2 tilts of the mouse wheel as an advantage. All the other keys are located in the exact same spots for the two mice.

Weight:
- The Naga is slightly heavier, maybe the reason I got use to using that ring finger as part of the grip.
- The G600 is lighter, but not having that extra finger to move it with actually makes the 'resistance' of each mouse the same.

Software:
- They both look great and function without issue for me. (Synapse 2.0 and Gaming 8.35)
- They both have great macro/key press/toggles and such that cover most needs perfectly.
- The Logitech does have more options for advanced users such as scripts and such though.

Lighting/Looks:
- Both have about equal brightness in lights and similar lighting options.
- The Naga has an extra light on the wheel, but the sides of this wheel are actually a sticker that does come off after about a year of use.

Skin:
- The Naga has a rubberized skin (like the back of the kindle fire) where the G600 is more a textured plastic. They both feel nice but the Naga feels higher tech.

Wireless:
- The Naga can be unplugged and used as a wireless mouse (and includes a base station).
- If you want a gaming mouse that can also go wireless, the Naga is a great option.

Price:
- At the time of this review the Naga commands a 50% price premium over the G600. If I was to go off Value, the G600 gets the nod. However, I don't as the mouse is a very important part of the computer and something I don't mind spending money on.
- The wireless is really where the price comes from.

Note:
- I'm an MMO gammer (Rift/GW2) and I casually play RPG Shooters (Borderlands).

I think this is a five-star product with a couple reservations. I will list those reservations FIRST, with the disclaimer that I am very picky:

1. The hydrophobic surface gives a dry, almost chalky (like a blackboard) tactile feel. It gave me the heebie jeebies at first, but I gave it a fair chance and got used to it. It seemed my hand was getting warmer and sweating more on this mouse than my old one, but I also found that the surface countered that and didn't get sticky.
2. The left click, right click, and mouse wheel are kind of loose, at least on the G600 I received. The clicks themselves are not loose (they are near perfect for me, actually), but the buttons seem to rest "loosely" on top of the switches with no tension. This allows them to rattle a bit. It's most pronounced if I tap the buttons without depressing the switches--you can hear the rattle/reverb. It's a very minor build quality thing making it seem less tight/solid. The ring finger button does not have this problem at all.
--------------------------
Now, with that out of the way, I will say this mouse is incredibly versatile. I did a lot of research before buying. After playing around with this thing, I figured out that there are a few things this mouse can do that even favorite professional YT reviewers and unboxers seemed to miss.

The main thing I discovered that sets this mouse apart has to do with the difference between "profiles" and "modes." The way these function with the G600 is dependent upon whether you are using the software profiles or the on-board memory. If you use the on-board memory, you get three straight modes/profiles (they are synonymous on this setting).

The software option is far more versatile, because it basically separates "modes" from "profiles." You still get three modes, but you get a unique profile for each application/game PER each mode. This means you can effectively set THREE different complete configuration profiles for EVERY application and cycle them on the fly. Better still, you can change the color scheme of the LEDs for each profile PER mode, so you can tell what you're on as you shift through them. Example: StarCraft2. Gold for Protoss, blue for Terran, and purple for Zerg. You could do the same thing for three characters or three builds on one character in an MMO.

I have tried the G602, G700s, and G500s, but none of them had the "mode" functionality. On those, when you switch to software profiles, the on-board memory apparently gets supplanted instead of working in tandem. The Logitech Gaming Software has a "Profile Cycling" option that is supposed to allow you to make multiple profiles per app, but after spending an hour or two trying to make additional profiles and get the hotkey to work, it appeared to me to be a broken functionality. Support was non-existent.

OTHER THOUGHTS
--Form factor: I have medium-small hands. The width of the mouse and the fact that the ring finger rests on a button took a week or two to get used to. Not a big deal. The braided cable is nice--keep it away from sharp corners/edges.
--Tons of buttons: I find most of the 12 on the side to be accessible and pleasant pleasant to use. All buttons except the wheel/tilt have quiet clicks, which I insist on. The side buttons are "mushy" buttons. I prefer this to the G602's side buttons that make a POP every time I go forward or back in a browser. I use the ring finger button for an additional button, rather than the "G-Shift" to effectively double the bindings (that is just serious overkill IMO). The tilt wheel and wheel button don't really trigger the scroll when used unless you're really sloppy, which they shouldn't.
--DPI: The DPI setting is not represented by an LED on the mouse. I imagine that is because this mouse was designed for MMOs.

All in all this is a great mouse. I hope this was helpful and thanks for reading!

So this replaced the mouse every one says ripped this G600 mouse off, and yeah I can see that, but both are really good gaming mouses, getting this one after three or so years of use of the venus, left click started to loose its click hold, it would of been a easy fix but decided I wanted something new, and as for the G600 compared?

Well it is the better mouse in my opinion, but not by much so if you don't want to spend as much, the Venus is perfectly fine and well worth the money, where the G600 is better is quality, the parts do feel like they'll last longer,

I like the ring finger extra button over the to the left of the left click mouse button on the Venus mouse, one thing I was worried about switching to the G600, is that I like my gaming mouses heavy, I used all the weights in the Venus gaming mouse, thankfully the G600 is as heavy or barely noticeably lighter then the Venus mouse,

Really the only thing I liked the Venus mouse more over the G600, is the size, I have large hands, glove size large some times are a little tight but that should give you an idea, anyways, the utechsmart venus mouse is slightly larger then the G600, it also has a thumb rest which I like but because the G600 is smaller, my palm doesn't rest as much on the G600, making my wrist rest more so on the mouse pad which can be uncomfortable, but raising my chair fixed that.

Was it worth the price difference? mmm, at this moment it being $3, sure, though $39 is still pretty high for a gaming mouse, heh unless your a Razor fan boy, anyways, I'm happy with my purchase, though we'll see if the G600 lasts as long as the Utechsmart Venus mouse.

I'm extremely picky with my MMO mouse. I have the original Naga, the Naga Epic 2014, and the Naga Chroma with hope that each new iteration would have improved button design (I was wrong, there is barely any difference between the Epic and the Chroma other than light spectrum). Finally made the jump to try the G600. Here are some highlights from each mouse that I'd like to point out, so you don't make the same dumb buyer's regret mistake I did for having 4 MMO gaming mice.

-G600 is bigger and as a result feels clunkier. You do get used to it though after extended use but it definitely doesn't feel as "agile" as the Naga. I've compared this side by side swapping between the two for an hour. A bigger hand would enjoy the G600 more but if you have small hands/fingers, it may not be for you.

-G600 has an extra "modifier" key (aka "G Shift") built into the mouse (to the right of mouse-2 button). But pressing this feels very stiff and is not anymore useful than just using the shift/ctrl modifier on your keyboard. I can't imagine it improving your gameplay at all. If you're bent on using this, it will take many hours to get used to pressing this modifier button in conjunction with the other buttons at the same time. It's very gimmicky. If you're using it for WoW, I would use this button not as a modifier but as a regular button for game-interface (like pulling up a map, bag, or inventory)

-G600 buttons are MUCH bigger than the Naga. This is both a pro and con. It is much easier for your fingers to find the right key on the G600 but at the same time, because the keys are so big, it feels more clunky and slower to press than the Naga. This would be more applicable if you're a competitive meta-gamer/PvPer and every second counts.

-G600 has TWO "indicator bumps" for your thumb to realize where it is at. It is on "5" key and the "8" key and it feels sharp and very easy to find. The Naga does not have ANY indicator bump (yes, even the brand new Naga Chroma I have). I think the design choice for the Naga was to bank on muscle memory and not for your thumb having to find the bump every-time.

In summary, the Naga is a smaller mouse and because the keys are smaller, its much faster to do combos/skill rotations on the Naga. The Naga just feels more agile but you will have a harder time with hitting the right keys you're intending. Muscle memory and learning the Naga will take much longer than your finger muscles learning the G600. The buttons on the G600 are much more stiff when compared side-by-side, especially the G-Shift modifier AND the two "mouse4" and "mouse5" buttons on top of the mouse.

I'm at a loss for which I like better because they both do have their pros and cons. Goodluck choosing.

I have just used it for only a few hours and I am already loving it. I've also used the Razer Naga Epic Chroma for 6 months and this Logitech G600 is a welcome change. I bought this as a mouse for my other PC. A fantastic mouse which gives users unparalleled control. It fits comfortably in the hand and the contours are nice however, the shape of the mouse favors people with a palm grip more. If you're more into the claw fingertip grip or claw grip which I am, you may find that you'll need some time to get used to the mouse but it is not very severe so you should be accustomed quite quickly. Buttons are easy to press and give an appropriate tactile response. The thumb buttons also have tactile indents on the G13 and G16 keys which help you to easily identify by feel which keys you will press. There is also something known as a G-shift button activated by your ring finger which effectively doubles the number of functions. I personally found this to be a killer feature. Its RGB lighting is bright and vibrant and can be seen well even in well lit areas however, in my particular unit, when the RGB is set to white, the G13 button seems to have a slightly different shade of white. It doesn't bother me so I won't take away a star for it. Also, you can set the RGB lighting be on static, a pulse or a cycle. You can also control the speed at which the lights pulse or cycle. The mouse also includes on-board memory which you can store your profiles on board without having to install any software. The cable is also braided for a nice and durable texture.

The Logitech Gaming Software is relatively easy to use and is quite slick. When choosing a color for the RGB the software immediately applies it without you needing to do anything. Very handy when you want to quickly see your changes. Assigning macros is very easy, but compared to Razer's Synapse, it is a little bit more clunky. However, the best part of it all is that you do not need to create an account to customize your mouse unlike Razer which you need to. This was a massive plus for me.

I do also own a Razer Naga Epic Chroma and compared to it, I would say the two are very similar in performance. The Naga does have better RGB lighting as its scroll wheel is lit while on the G600, it is not. Furthermore, the non-wireless version of the Naga also has it's Razer emblem illuminated. On the G600, only the grid of buttons for the thumb is lit. Also, the Naga's shape is more forgiving to people who use a claw/fingertip. The G600 is also more affordable than the Razer equivalent.

Comparing Razer's and Logitech's offerings, I would say the Logitech wins. Razer is not bad either, but with the Logitech, you do get more functionality over form. I mainly use this for productivity and I have set the buttons to act as shortcuts like Alt-Tab, Task Switcher etc and the G600 is a joy to use. If you're looking for a mice for absolute control and functionality, look no further than the G600. It also has that killer G-shift button which is unique to the G600. There is also Corsair's Scimitar RGB offering to consider. While that one has truly impressive RGB, you do lose a little functionality as that one does not have a tilting scroll-wheel and also doesn't offer a G-shift equivalent.

*Disclaimer: this review is based off approximately 3 days of usage in a head-to-head comparison against the Razer Naga (2017) and using a Razer Naga (2012) for reference. I may also come back to this review in the coming days to post pics/video.*

PROS:
+ Great build quality
+ Great tactile feeling on side buttons and scroll wheel
+ Comfortable in hand, even during extended sessions
+ Sweat/grime resistant coating

CONS:
- Side buttons take a little while to get used to
- The 3rd mouse button (AKA G-shift/ring-finger button) is annoying

DETAILS:
Let me start this section by saying that I have somewhat large hands - not so much in my palms, but I do have very long fingers, so I have no complaints regarding the size of this mouse. Let's start with the good things about this mouse.. It just feels solid - not in a heavy sort of way, but in terms quality. The left & right clicks, the scroll wheel, the side buttons - everything just feels like it's held very well in place (versus the Razer Naga Chroma - Ergonomic RGB MMO Gaming Mouse- 12 Programmable Thumb Buttons & 16,000 Adjustible DPI). Having played World of Warcraft (WoW) with the 2012 Naga for the past 5 years, I became accustomed to the "clicky", tactile feel of the side buttons on that mouse, so I was relieved when I learned that these, although they do have an unfamiliar shape versus the 2012 Naga I upgraded from and take a bit of getting used to, do have a great tactile feel to them and take a well-balanced amount of pressure to press. However, even with my long fingers, some of the side buttons do feel a bit awkward to reach (G9, G10, G11). This mouse is very comfortable even during 4+ hour sessions and the sweat resistant coating on the mouse prevents any "gunk" buildup, at least in the short time I've been using it. Now for the greatest (or worst) flaw in this mouse.. the stupid G-shift/ring-finger button. Look Logitech, I get it.. Another shift-button to exponentially add the number of possible button combos is great.. in theory. Had this button been replaced with just a resting area for my ring finger, this would probably be the best mouse on the market, but alas, they had to create something "unique." This button will not be used by the majority of users/gamers due to the foundational retraining of muscle memory that is required.. I have no desire to adapt to this 3rd button, which frustrated me that I cannot lock the button all together. Occasionally, in just resting my hand/ring-finger on that button will cause it to click, which is extremely annoying. Fortunately, the button can be disabled in the software so that it has no effect, but the fact that it can still be pressed is obnoxious enough. This single feature/gimmick almost causes me to switch to the Naga if it weren't for the latest iteration's cheap build quality; however, I am slowly adjusting to the button and doing my best not to accidentally press it and get enraged. Overall, the mouse is great, and definitely the best of the two being compared here, I just wish there were some way to lock the G-shift button so it can simply function as a rest for my ring-finger. If you're weighing these two mice, feel free to check out my review of the Naga on it's product page.

TL;DR
This mouse is definitely superior to the latest iteration of the Razer Naga in terms of quality and feel, and beats the Naga price-wise to boot. Despite the obnoxious G-shift button, I still recommend the G600 if you're weighing this mouse against the Razer Naga.

This mouse is almost always on sale for < $50 compared to the G502 and Razer Naga/Corsair Scimitar which are usually much, much more expensive ($65+!). Why do you ask? Well it has a Laser sensor which isn't seen as "good" by the CSGO Community asd the G502 has gotten a lot of attention/hype from the community. I got this mouse for $38 after Christmas. There is no difference between the white and black beyond color.

Let me reiterate - I have no issues with this mouse (I do not play CSGO and do not understand the sensor argument).

I actually love the feel, and the customization options. The G600 is much heavier than any previous mouse I've had, but is more ergonomic with the Ring finger on the G-Shift Key. If you've ever used the M570 Trackball, it is a similar feel.

The customization options allow me to use any keys that I want. I've moved the forward/back keys to more comfortable locations, disabled the G-Shift key and added weird text macros to the DPI switches.

All in all, I have no issues with this mouse after a couple months of owning it.

Update 6/22
Got used to the button design. Great job so far. Only real gripe is the 3rd mouse button on the side, dont use my ring finger for it, instead just move my middle finger over it and my ring and pinky fingers rest on the edge for better grip.
If Logitech couldve replaced that 3rd mouse button for what g602 had the mouse wouldve been perfect.
Really loving the scroll wheel tilt buttons.

Initial Review 6/20:
Bought this mouse so that I can use my G602 wireless more for productivity, and this for mmo.
Really like the design, the RGB PCMR feeling to this. feels nice to hold but there are a few draw backs.
draw backs:
-I can comfortably reach 6-8 of the 12 side buttons using my normal paw grip. However to access them all, I have to grip the mouse slightly lower than usual.
-the mouse button next to the right click is very oddly placed. Wished Logitech kept 1-2 buttons on the corner of the left button instead to ensure a tighter grip can be made, but i do understand the logic in using the ring finger for to shift between keys.
-very hard to keep a firm tight grip without sacrificing ease of access or comfort. maybe i'll get used to it eventually.
-not wireless :(, Hope the nice cable doesn't fray too quickly.

PROs
+Comfortable for small and average sized adult hands.
+Easy to see the buttons on the side due to its lights.
+Doesn't get caught on anything under the mouse itself.
+High to low sensitivity, ideal for gaming or general use.
+Average to somewhat long cord makes for easy setup on most pcs.

CONs
-The cord itself is not plastic wrapped but rather, cloth which means it can fray out easily if you aren't careful about placement. Do not recommend hard edges for this reason, try for rounded edges.
-You need to download a program that allows for control over the colors on the mouse and keybinding. It's not required but recommended.

Overall I've been very happy with this mouse and I am about to buy another because I had a wooden, hard edged desk that caused a fray on my cord and only got worse over time. I highly recommend this mouse, period. Razer is way overpriced, has faults in its wheel and can often get caught on things due to the bottom design on the the comparable Chroma models. Anything else falls pretty short, even if it is cheaper. This is the cost I expect of a good, functioning mouse that'll last a long time and for multiple uses.
