Logitech G100s Gaming Keyboard Review
Hello /r/mousereview. First, some background information, I play League of Legends and I’ve used the same gaming mouse, A Dragon War ELE-G3 for almost half a decade now before finally deciding that it was time to go and get a real gaming mouse; “real” in the sense that it from a well-known brand. So after much research I decided to buy the Logitech G100s as it was cheap, durable and basic. My local cyber café uses it on their PC's ( I live in Asia ) and I don’t think they’ve changed the mice it ever since they opened, the clicks on them still feel good although I think the hydrophobic coating wore off; plus it’ll be an advantage if I play there as I’ll be used to the mouse. This is my first review. Oh and here are some pics of it.
Buttons
The left and right click buttons are nice and feel good no matter where you click on it. The only issue that I did come across with were that it didn’t register sometimes and got stuck, although this problem seemed to disappear after a while. The buttons are rated up to 20 million clicks and I think it lives up to the claim.
Scroll Wheel
The scroll wheel has a nice feeling to it and I didn’t come across any issues whilst using it. It was also pretty easy to press. I just don’t like how it is circular/oval shaped instead of flat.
Tracking
The sensor was excellent and I never experienced any tracking loss. It’s an invisible LED; quite subtle which I like. The mouse feet were pretty smooth and they’re also rated at 250km. I use it at 1600 DPI.
Feel/Design
Even though the mouse is made from plastic, it doesn’t feel cheap at all, I really like the weight of it and think it’s just right. I use a palm grip and the ambidextrous design fits my hand perfectly and is very comfortable. The anti-sweat hydrophobic coating was also effective; keeping my sweaty palms at bay during intense gaming sessions. I never noticed any fingerprints but some kind of residue did build up sometimes on the buttons if my fingertips were dirty but this can easily be wiped clean with a tissue or cloth.
Software
The software was easy to use and install and has some really good features. You can have up to 4 customizable DPI settings, change the polling rate and also have different profiles for different games.
Overall
I’d recommend this mouse if you’re looking for a minimalist or casual gaming mouse. The only downside to this mouse is the lack of forward/backward/side buttons. The mouse I used before this had them and I’ve really gotten used to it. This is pretty subjective and if you don’t use or need the extra buttons then this won’t be an issue at all. I am now using the Logitech G302.
