Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex Performance Edition Gaming Mouse
Designed for the Performance Gaming Enthusiast
Daedalus Apex was designed based on feedback from the performance gaming community. Based on this feedback, Logitech put its highest-performing optical sensor and metal spring button tensioning system into a lightweight, compact body. The result is an enthusiast-class gaming mouse with great accuracy, responsiveness and performance.
- Designed with the help of performance gamers
- Advanced Optical Sensor for high-accuracy targeting
- Durable, lightweight design for long-lasting gaming comfort
- Five DPI settings with fast on-the-fly switching
Built for performance gamers
Logitech worked directly with performance gaming enthusiasts to design Daedalus Apex from the ground up. Delta Zero sensor technology and a lightweight design deliver enhanced comfort, accuracy and responsiveness for intense high-speed gaming.
Advanced optical sensor
For maximum performance, Daedalus Apex features the PMW3366. Logitech’s most accurate optical sensor has zero smoothing or filtering across the entire DPI range for incredible responsiveness, even at high sensitivity. Advanced Logitech G-exclusive Delta Zero optical sensor technology minimizes speed-related accuracy variance—commonly known as 'mouse acceleration'—for precision targeting. Plus, you can tune the sensor to the mouse surface* for maximum high-speed performance and lower lift-off distance.
* Some settings require Logitech Gaming Software available for download at our official site.
RGB Customizable Lighting
Customize lighting color and brightness to match your style, system or environment. For maximum visual appeal, full-color RGB lighting projects light onto your mouse pad and can be customized from a palette of up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with 'breathing' light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system*.
On-the-fly DPI switching
Make the right moves in any game situation. Switch through up to 5 DPI settings, from pixel-precise targeting (200 DPI) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 12,000 DPI).
Durable and lightweight
Daedalus Apex is built for long-term gaming comfort. The left and right mouse buttons have been tested for 20 million clicks, the equivalent of some top professional gamers practicing 10 hours a day, every day, for two years. Durable and lightweight materials are designed to make your gaming sessions comfortable from start to finish.
More control at your command
Customize your favorite games with six individually programmable buttons. Configure the onboard memory to remember up to three game profiles. Experience the improved button response and feel of Logitech’s metal spring button tensioning system.

ERGONOMICS:- I'm in between a claw grip and fingertip user, so the somewhat small size doesn't put too much of a burden on my hands. However, the G303's construction is a bit on the plasticy harsh side, whereas a Mionix Avior 8200 does feel better since the extra rubberized coating helps soften the total experience. However some of the plastic has matte finish on it, which does make it feel a bit nicer. In general, it's a love or hate it relationship with the ergonomics of this mouse. My hands are medium sized.
BUTTONS & LAYOUT:- I think this is one of the best features the G303 has. First of all, the right and left click buttons provide amazing feedback, and the metal spring tension system really shines here. The clicks are very satisfying, and has just the right amount of force needed to press them comfortably and confidently. The middle mouse button is somewhat of an improvement when compared to the Mionix Avior 8200, but not totally. The middle mouse button has a slight resistance when trying to scroll up and down, which is a good thing. Pressing it is equally satisfying as the right and left mouse buttons, and provides the same feedback. The layout of the side buttons are very good in my opinion. I rarely use them, so where they are—which is a little further to the top—means I won't accidentally press them. Unfortunately, these side buttons do not have the same switches it seems, so the feedback and response isn't the same as the right, left, and middle mouse buttons. The DPI cycling button does the job, nothing really worth mentioning here other than the feedback is a bit on the lackluster side in my personal opinion. However the DPI cycling button is designed so you don't accidentally press it; the surface is raised higher towards the rear of the mouse.
PERFORMANCE-: Using one of the best sensors on the market, which is the Pixart PMW3366, this mouse is without a doubt, the most accurate I have used. The tracking is absolutely astonishing, the ability to "tune" the sensor for the surface which it rests upon is a huge plus (this is done with the Logitech Gaming Software), and there is no positive or negative acceleration, which helps immensely for accuracy. The 12000 DPI is a marketing gimmick for all purposes, but the gaming software is very good in that you can tune the DPI in 50 point increments. For those curious, the range that you can set it to ranges from 200-12000 DPI. It's also worth mentioning that the responsiveness of this mouse is very good. I feel that when compared with the Mionix Avior 8200, the G303 just seems to respond slightly faster to my hand moving it. I notice it in the game I play (HAWKEN) which I have logged almost 2,500 hours in. I've played that game with the Avior 8200 at around 3/4 of the total playtime. Oh, and of course, right out of the gate, my aim improved quite dramatically, and I notice that I am more confident in utilizing twitch movements to aim precisely at the target. No acceleration problems that did plague the Mionix Avior 8200 mouse that I was using.
SOFTWARE-: Nothing too amazing, but it does the job and is not filled to the brim with software bugs (only tested it for a few days however, 64-bit version)—which is good. It has quite decent customization with the lighting, the sensor profiles, and the DPI values. I don't use profiles at all, which also includes macros. But, the option is there if you want to use it.
RGB LIGHTING-: The lighting quality on my unit is very good and bright. The mesh effect is pretty cool too. Nothing too aggressive like some Roccat mice. You can adjust the brightness within the software, and can change the lighting effect between color cycle and breathing effect. The Logitech Gaming Logo is also lit up pretty decently. The color accuracy and the quality of the LEDs in here seem to be better than the Mionix Avior 8200. All in all, it's very good. It's a nice addition to make the mouse feel that bit more customizable.
BUILD QUALITY-: The build quality is, somewhat decent. I don't know if it's because Logitech opted for less rubberized coating to reduce the weight, but when compared to the Avior 8200, the G303 just doesn't compare. The build quality on the G303 is certainly not the best, and does feel like it's going to take a beating in the next couple of years, perhaps even months. However, in the hand, it does not feel this way. Holding it in the air, shaking it somewhat violently to hear for rattling of parts, I do not hear anything, which does indicate it is sturdy with it's design. Apparently, some early units of the G303 had some kind of bad manufacturing that caused rattling to be heard when it undergoes shaking. It seems Logitech has fixed this on my unit. For the $50 price tag, I'd expect a little bit more durability, but in my opinion, it's not a total deal breaker given so many excellent features of this mouse. If you can find this guy on sale for $10 or more, it's certainly worth the cost. Even if this isn't the case, it's still worth it in my opinion. It's not a cheap feeling plastic mouse, but does not compete with the durability of Mionix mice.
PROS & CONS-:
- The sensor is one of the best on the market (superb tracking, no acceleration, responsiveness top notch)
- Small and relatively lightweight
- Great button layout and feedback
- Decent RGB LED Lighting
- Customizability via the Logitech Gaming Software
- Well thought out and unique design makes this great to use with claw/fingertip grip
- Excellent button layout
- Cable management via included attached velcro strap (nice!)
- Sturdy construction, no rattling is heard when it is shaken
- Somewhat of a lackluster build quality
- Side buttons have very poor feedback
- The price can be hard to sink in, given some of the complaints with the build quality (price tag is $50 as of this review)
if you're claw gripper like me who's been looking for G9 alternative, give this one a try. you'll feel right at home. the size and the grip feels much like the G9(pretty much same height, length, slightly narrower width). I've been using Logitech G9 for 9 years and ever since it was discontinued, I wasted a lot of money desperately searching for a good alternative. now my search is over. this is an awesome G9 replacement.
At first I was kind of scared that the size would be an issue, despite my smallish hands. The g303 is a relatively small mouse, but I find that it's something you get used to fairly quickly. Thanks to the small size, micro-movements are easier, due to increased wrist flexibility. There's so much more wrist control compared to larger mice like the Razer Deathadder I was using before I got this mouse.
The button clicks feel very solid and ensures confidence in durability. This was a problem for the Deathadder. For some reason I like to believe that people complain about things for no reason, because I rarely ever get a faulty product. The deathadder's double-click issue was one that happened fairly often for users, and unfortunately it happened for me too. I can almost guarantee you this will not happen with the g303. It just feels so much sturdier and the clicks are very springy (because there are literally springs under).
Overall, I chose this mouse because Shroud of team Cloud9 from CS:GO uses it, and he's always been my idol player because of his unnaturally good mouse control and precision. He's what convinced me to buy this mouse, and I haven't had any regrets so far. It's the most accurate and precise mouse i've ever used, even more so than the Deathadder that is well-known for its great sensor. I believe anyone and everyone would be satisfied with this mouse for FPS gaming if they're able to get accustomed to the shape of the mouse. I am very satisfied :)
