Logitech is one of the leading PC peripheral manufacturers. They have been trusted by gamers to provide great quality products for years and they have never let us down. Because of this reason, many MMO gamers who were looking for a gaming mouse were sad when forced to look elsewhere for a mouse that is designed with MMO gaming in-mind. Logitech answered this call and has released the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, designed from the beginning as a mouse that will meet the needs of today’s MMO gamers.
The Logitech G600 has 20 buttons to help you take full control of your characters. The 12 G-key thumb panel is really comfortable to use and is easy to get accustomed to. The inclusion of a G-shift button allows you to make a truly impressive number of configurable macros. Not only are these buttons fully configurable to pull off any macro you could want in your game, they also do it in style. The thumb panel gives you complete control over its RGB back-light, allowing you to choose the exact color of lighting you want, set it to pulse between colors, or set the back-light to be turned off all together.
The G600 is also fully plug-and-play. There is no software disk that you will need to install, everything you need is already on the unit. This includes 3 memory profiles. This means that you are always prepared to play your best, even when your not gaming on your own PC. If you know you will be using someone else’s PC to game on, just take your G600 with you and all your macros, tracking and back-light color information will be ready to go as soon as you plug it in.
The braided USB cable is a really nice addition to the G600. It adds to the value and visual appeal of the mouse and also helps keep the cable better protected from damage. Logitech’s durability testing for this mouse includes pounding each key 3 times per second, non-stop, for nearly 3 months. The three primary buttons on the G600 are all rated by Logitech to sustain 20 million clicks. The G600 should be able to handle the vigorous clicking required by some gamers to make sure their Fireball begins casting the very instant the spell comes off of cooldown.
The G600 is not that it is badly designed, in fact it is very comfortable and all of the G-keys were easily reachable for my thumb while playing. The only real downside is that it takes a little time using the mouse to become acquainted with using the thumb keys at all. It is not the products fault, it is just not something you can plug in and be using at 100% proficiency right away. Once you get used to the G600 however, you will not have any more trouble dodging in Guild Wars 2 while battling your opponents in World vs World vs World.
The G600 is a great gaming mouse for anyone who plays MMO’s or someone who just wants more programmable macro keys close at hand. RTS players, MOBA players and really players of any PC gaming genre, with a few minutes of set up, could find themselves performing actions quicker and more accurately with the help of the G-keys on the G600. If you hate using macros and hotkeys, the G600 is not really the mouse for you. If you, like many PC gamers, have found that macros and hotkeys allow you to bring your gaming skills to a new level, then I think you will enjoy the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse.
