Damn, you must be the ONLY one on the internet to supply this service :idea: .

You are a Saint to all the suffering Mouse users, stuck with awful cables on their current mice models.

To me Logitech g203/g102/g pro is the best mouse right now. Relatively small, simple and LIGHT with a flawless sensor that has low lift of distance. The g pro has a different sensor, but g203/g102 sensors are 99,9% the same performance wise for a lot less money. The g pro also comes with a clunky thick braided cable which only gets in a way.

Going back to the g303..
The problem is that the Height of the g403 angles the wrist upwards, and the top is in the middle of the mouse.
The problem with the g303 is really only the Length, low profile with the top at the back of the mouse is the way to go. My favorite shape alltime is the diamondback, but razer.. </3

I had g303 for a while, and the angular shape always bothered me. g pro is the same sensor but in a more conventional shell.

Too bad for g403, I was thinking of maybe getting the wireless version.

Still liking my G403, despite the relatively small size.

Never thought I'd consider a wireless mouse, but I just saw the new Logitech G703. It uses "PowerPlay" wireless charging technology. However, the current price for the G703 is $99.99 and the wireless charging station is another $99.99. At those prices, I will remain tethered to my USB cable for a while longer.

I'm surprised I didn't find this thread when I was looking for mouse candidates. I really like the thorough reviews you guys have given the mice mentioned here. I recently needed a new mouse for my non-Mac systems, and I ended up buying a Logitech G403 because it was on sale (199 DKK ~ 27 EUR). So far I really like it. It's the first mouse in a very long time (I'm used to the Apple trackpad, and a cheap Microsoft mouse at the office, which I rarely use), my last one is a Logitech MX310. I also saw the G703, but I could not justify the huge price difference between that and the G403.

Have you come across other mice that you like more than the G403?

The Logitech G403 is still on my home office desk, and I have swapped out one of my Razer DA mice at work for another Logitech G403.

Tied for a close second are three mice: Razer DA, Razer DA Elite, and Steelseries Rival 300.

I also still like the Cougar 550M and Revenger for the size, shape, and scroll wheel, but the top surface is still slightly sticky.

Although the Cougar Revenger S is smaller than the 550M or Revenger, based on it specs and reviews, I'd like to try it.

after a while I start to dislike the Logitech MX master more and more due to it's heavyness. I think a light wireless or even wired mouse is what I actually prefer. And I don't need al the extra buttons and wheels.
Plus the beige MX Master (As pretty as it is) gets super dirty after very little use :(

I am considering the Logitech G403 for me.

Btw. Mouse sensitivity on Mac OS is beyond retarded... What do these guys actually get right, beside premium price for shitty hardware I mean.

I dunno, mouse sensitivity on my MBP 2017 seems to be about the same as my MSI and I don't have a problem with it. I don't like a lot of things about Macintosh, but they are really good for coding. Though I never would have found that out if my office didn't use them (we only have two Windows machines and that's for me and the other QA engineer).

Okay I should have been more precise here, I don't actually mean the sensitivity but the awful acceleration, it's a friggin pain in the arse. I had to install some weirdo Steelseries software to actually disable this. Boooo Apple BOOOO! A checkbox would have been nice but they are way to busy inventing shit people don't need.

Depends on what you do, for me personally it's a total disaster. The more sophisticated my Linux gets the more I want to fucking throw the companies macbook (WITH A FRIGGIN TOUCHBAR) against the wall.

Anyway, the thread is about an Ideal mouse and after using the MX Master, I decided that I found a very light mouse more ergonomic than some heavy ass brick with a fancy shape.

@cookie: If you are turning to lightweight mice, apparently the ultimate in this regard is the new FinalMouse Ultralight Pro, which weighs in at an astonishing 67 grams.

It is minimalist in other respects as well -- no LEDs (hurrah!) and no software (yes!). It does, however, have DPI presets of 400, 800, 1600 and 3200.

Rocket Jump Ninja has it rated #3 in his top 40 list.

It sells for $69, but it is currently sold out at FinalMouse and Amazon.

I have not tried it yet, but I have also been favoring lightweight mice lately after having tried much heavier models earlier in my mouse quest. I also prefer no LEDs and no software.

For the time being, however, I am still using my Logitech G403 and continuing to like it very much.

That actually looks really good. If I had seen that at a reasonable price and/or had the opportunity to try it, I might have liked that one.

However, I suspect it might be a pain to keep it clean...

oh wow! That mouse looks amazing! but what if my hand is a bit smudgy? It won't look that great after 2 months of use, unless you're a clean-o-phile.
