There is quite a lot of good things to discuss. First of all, and likely most important, is that the G603 was built from the ground up to sip power, deliver a great user experience, and do all of it without even realizing it is wireless. On top of the low latency wireless nature of the mouse, there is also the secondary connectivity to consider, where Bluetooth makes this mouse compatible with other devices.
Just a single press of a button and you are on the PC wirelessly, and with another button press, you can be on another PC, a table, or anything that can benefit for control of a mouse over Bluetooth. The shape of the G603 can fit small, medium, and large hands, depending on grip, but is not as bit as the G903 we just looked at. The coating feels smooth to the touch, but due to the contours, it is easy to lift when needed, and does not get lost on the desk with sweaty hands either. We like the solid feel that comes from the Omron switches, and with a 32-bit processor and an all-new sensor in play, the G603 is something worth getting your hands-on and trying for yourself.
Even though we get why specific "issues" exist, due to power restrictions or the way the mouse is built, we still must bring them forward. We only saw two things that may be of concern to buyers. First of all, is the quick nature in which the mouse will go into a resting mode. You have to realize that drawing minimal power while delivering the most battery life possible is the main driving force here, but it does not stop the frustration if you are not constantly mobile or using the mouse in a game.
The second is the noise. This may be the thing that will keep you from using it in an office environment, but should be of little concern while gaming. Due to the top panel being able to be removed, only magnets hold it in place, and there is little to remove any sort of reverberation. Combined with the pressure needed to actuate the Omron switches under it, the G603 can "ring" with vibration, increasing the noise commonly captured inside of other mice.
At first, the price may have shocked you a bit, but we hope that by going over every detail of the G603, you can better understand where your money is going. For a little less than $60 currently, even without all of the RGB happiness that comes with many other gaming mice, Logitech still delivers a lot of bang for the buck in this mouse. We will not be getting rid of our G603, even if relegated to the HTPC, which it is also a perfect fit for, we will make sure to find a home for this mouse. The Logitech G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming mouse has been a pleasure to use and we see little reason not to recommend that you pick one up and give it a go.

The Bottom Line
Logitech went out on a limb to develop the G603, and it has paid off for the users. It is comfortable, it includes top-tier components, the batteries last for what seems like forever, and it sports Lightspeed wireless and Bluetooth connectivity. At this price, it is hard to pass it by!
