The G203 Lightsync is the latest in a line of inexpensive, lightweight gaming mice from Logitech. The mouse's low profile, small frame, and pretty RGB lighting give you more bang than you'd expect for a relatively modest buck. The problem is that Logitech didn't take the extra step in making the blue and lilac's rubber cable's match the rest of the mouse.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
Logitech's G203 Lightsync is a good choice for budget-conscious fans of small mice. The mouse is smaller than the average gaming pointer, measuring 1.38 by 4.5 by 2.28 inches. Its proprietary "gaming-grade" sensor tracks at up to 8,000dpi and is accurate at 200 inches per second.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Logitech G203 LIGHTSYNC feels well-built, has a good number of programmable buttons, and it's well-suited for smaller hands. However, those with large or extra-large hands may not find a palm or claw grip comfortable due to its short length. You can't use this mouse wirelessly, and the mouse wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and doesn't unlock for free scrolling.

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Logitech G203 Lightsync is nearly an entire ounce lighter, at only 2.1 ounces. It's still a low-profile, semi-ambidextrous design, with a black plastic chassis that measures 4.6 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches. The LED strip in particular has the smoothest color transitions I've seen in a mouse from this price range.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The mouse's PTFE feet helped the mouse glide around nicely,as did the light weight. The G203 Lightsync has a 32-bit Arm microprocessor that allows you to customize profiles. The mouse's scroll wheel has firm notches that made it easy to scroll through and land on the right weapon.
