Logitech wasted no time at CES 2017 to unveil a brand-new gaming mouse series called ‘Prodigy’. The goal with this series isn’t to be the best of the best, but to be the best of the best for its “great value” market segment. In the G203 Prodigy’s case, that great value equates to a price of $50 USD.
If you think the mouse looks straightforward, then Logitech apparently accomplished its goal, as that’s a key point mentioned in its press release. It’s as if Logitech adhered to the KISS principles (keep it simple, stupid), and that’s a good thing. Remember when $150 gaming mice looked this good?
Logitech says that the G203 sports a brand-new optical sensor, which will allow for DPI levels ranging from 200~6000. This sensor, designed in the US and built by the Swiss, aims (no pun) to “give you better control”, so that you can start “training your muscles to aim by feel” – not just sight.
It might not be obvious from the shot above, but this mouse features RGB lighting, allowing you to configure it for up to 16.7 million colors. It also has six configurable buttons, as well as an on-the-fly DPI switcher. Finally, the mouse also has onboard memory, so if you wish to take your settings with you, you can.
Fortunately, if you want the G203 Prodigy, you will not have to wait long: it goes on sale globally this month.
