   One of the things people like me take for granted is that not only do wired gaming mice perform better compared to wireless ones but the fact that they require no recharging or replacing of batteries is a huge plus both in terms of versatility and cost. That gap has been closing since the early 2000's but to date just a handful of models have managed to make us think twice about that. Logitech has tried many times over the years to change that perception and the mouse that came closest to that was their somewhat recent G900 Chaos Spectrum model (the MX Master - and thus probably also its replacement the MX Master 2S - turned out to be very good but not what we'd call a gaming mouse). Still it did leave some room for improvement and since that's exactly what Logitech does they took it back to the drawing board and voila the G903 Lightspeed was released into the market a couple of months back.


   Logitech designs products that have an everyday place in people's lives, connecting them to the digital experiences they care about. Over 30 years ago, Logitech started connecting people through computers, and now it’s designing products that bring people together through music, gaming, video and computing. Founded in 1981, Logitech International is a Swiss public company listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange (LOGN) and on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (LOGI). Find Logitech at www.logitech.com.


   After taking a closer look at the specs sheet of the G903 Lightspeed it's evident that Logitech didn't add or remove any crucial features to the already excellent G900 Chaos Spectrum Gaming Mouse. That's right both the G903 and the G900 are ambidextrous gaming mice that have the same PMW3366 optical sensor under the hood which features a maximum resolution of 12000DPI (200DPI increments) with an maximum acceleration of 40G, speed of over 400 IPS (inches per second) and a 1-millisecond report rate. Both also have a total of 11 programmable buttons, 2 RGB lighting zones, 5 onboard profiles and use Logitech's Delta Zero (zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering and zero pixel rounding) and Lightspeed (lag-free 2.4 GHz wireless connection) technologies. The new G903 Lightspeed however does have a few tricks up its sleeve so it wears improved primary switches manufactured by OMRON (50 million clicks as opposed to the 20 million clicks of the G900) and is fully compatible with Logitech's Powerplay mat which basically allows wireless recharging of the mouse as long as it's on it. This is achieved by mounting a module into the G903 which in turn acts as the means to transfer power onto the built-in 750mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery pack which can power the G903 continuously for up to 24 hours (32 hours with the RGB LEDs turned off). The time has come for us to take a closer look to the brand new G903 Lightspeed Gaming Mouse by our good friends over at Logitech.
