Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Gaming Mouse Review

Final Thoughts


The aesthetics of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is a bit futuristic, but we liked everything about its design and appeal. The main buttons felt great and are ready for any grip style. The location of the scroll wheel and the on-the-fly DPI buttons are on point and easy to access. While this is an ambidextrous design and enables the user to choose the button layout, we opted to keep all four buttons in most of the time, as a couple more G keys being at our disposal came in handy.


The feel of the coating offers grip, and with the grooves along the contoured sides, lifting the G900 is simple to do, and with no feeling of it possibly being dropped. Movement is smooth and effortless, and even with everything this mouse includes, it feels light in your hand, delivering accurate and fluid movements on all the surfaces that we tested it on. As far as looks and movement are concerned, Logitech has them covered.



Inside of the mouse is an innovative layout with puts the switches much closer to the buttons, and delivers faster activation, all of them with a loud click associated with them being pressed. The tilt scroll wheel comes in handy for split screen work, and the free-wheel ability of the Logitech design is something we have always appreciated. The sensor is top of the line when it comes to optical sensors, and being backed with a 32-bit MCU gives each user every chance to get their inputs across to the screen. Wired or wireless, the high polling rate and 2.4GHz channel of communications left us with an identical feel in either mode. If in a blind test where we did not know if it were wired or not, we are not sure we could see or feel the difference without knowing ahead of time.


Depending on usage, you may only have to charge this mouse two or three times a week, similar to what we experienced, but at the bare minimum, you can make it an entire day of gaming if need be, before having to connect the charging cable. Also, Logitech suggests to use the cable and range extender and keep it close to the mouse. This way, you get less chance of interference, and where the USB receiver is placed matters little when there is no cord to get in your way. Then, we gain all of the benefits which the software brings forward. Remapping, multiple profiles, Macros, finite adjustments to the DPI and sensing ability of the optical sensor - Logitech left no stone unturned with this design.


To the average customer, the near $150 pricing is a hard pill to swallow. However, when brilliant new products hit the market, there is always a premium associated with the purchase. While you could wait around for someone else to try to deliver this level of design and performance, the reality is that nobody out there is copying Logitech designs, and while you may get most of the features, you will not get the feel, craftsmanship, or likely the same accuracy that this mouse delivers.


For those who like to have the latest and greatest in products, or for anyone who likes a mouse to disappear figuratively when using it, this is likely the mouse for you. As for us, we love what the G900 Chaos Spectrum has to offer, and it likely will become a permanent fixture in our office.
