Verdict: “If you love rainbows and accurate tracking, buy it! ”
Good / The Logitech Daedalus has an amazing grip and design with great DPI and sensor quality. It’s also very comfortable to hold.
Bad / At first glance, build quality doesn’t feel super premium, reflecting the price. The Lighting feels somewhat dim behind glossy cover on the side.
Verdict / The Logitech G303 Daedalus is an affordable alternative to more expensive mice on the market. It also stands out with a unique shape, cool lighting, and easy to access buttons. While it doesn’t have as many buttons as a mouse like the Razer Naga, it’s a powerful mouse with incredible sensors as well an easier mouse to hold than competitors like the DeathAdder.
Logitech Daedalus Review
The Logitech Daedalus has a great optical sensor for video games as well as on the fly DPI switching (200 to 12,000 DPI). It utilizes a Pixart 3366 sensor which makes for some accurate mouse tracking. The Logitech Daedalus exceeds other mice with lower DPI like the G600, Hyperion, and Proteus.
One of my favorite things about the mouse is the side lighting. It has a gated-hole appearance where light shines through creating a unique effect not seen in other competitors. In fact, most mice around this price tag don’t have as much lighting–so if you love the lighting, consider picking up this mouse! With the mouse, you can customize the colors to your satisfaction–full-color RGB!
A lot of users mistakenly describe the Logitech Daedalus as being a light mouse, but when compared to what you think would be heavier alternatives (Razer Naga is an MMORPG mouse with a full set of 12 buttons on the side only at 4.8 ounces), the Logitech Daedalus weighs more. The Logitech Daedalus clocks in at 7.2 ounces, but the feel is everything. For all intents and purposes, the Logitech Daedalus feels like a lightweight mouse.
For this reason, the Logitech Daedalus makes for an excellent fingertip mouse. The grip isn’t too bulky or wide, and the flared sides make it very easy to hold and move around with a lighter grip. If you don’t have a palm grip, or are use to smaller mice, or just have little hands, consider checking out the Logitech Daedalus. Holding the Logitech Daedalus is actually an interesting experience–it really feels quite different from other mice, but still comfortable all the same.
The only downside to the Daedalus’s minimalism is that you don’t get as much buttons as something like the Naga or some other logitech products. At the same time, it’s refreshing–and it does match up agaisnt products like the Deathadder.
Coming with the Logitech Daedalus is the necessary software. However, one neat thing about the Logitech Daedalus is that you can store settings into the mouse’s onboard memory which makes switching computers with the mouse very comfortable. You can save macros, sensitivity, and any other preferences inside the configuration panel.
Worth the Price?
If you want some fancy colors, great ergonomic design (if you have big hands, and you like a palm grip maybe check out the Naga or another alternative) and one of the best sensors on the market for gaming, definitely buy the Logitech Daedalus.
