Logitech G600 Detailed Features

In this section we will take a more detailed look at the features offered by the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse.

Unlike most gaming mice, the Logitech G600 does not come with umpteen LED lights. The thumb panel is the only thing that lights up, and it does offer custom RGB lighting. The lighting system also offers profile saved colors, as well as game-specified color profiles.

The Logitech mouse configuration software offers a automatic game detection mode. So far, I haven't found much use for it since I only really need the buttons for World of Warcraft, but if you would be switching games frequently, that would be a nice feature to have.

The software is very easy to use for binding keys, and provides suggestions for the keys. This is one of the easier pieces of software I've used to specify keys, and it's pretty self-explanatory. The mouse offers three on-board profiles, each with their own color. As you can see, I like pink. A really neat feature here is the G-Shift feature. If you look in the picture above and see where I have bound the twelve side buttons to num1 through num0, if I then selected G-Shift, while in game, it would modify the bindings of those buttons to be control+num1 through control+num0 (or however you would configure it). This only applies while holding the G-Shift button, and gives one an option to have a multitude of keybinds that you could not otherwise easily have.

The lighting settings pane offers some pre-defined colors, as well as RGB sliders, a brightness slider, and a color bar. You can cycle lighting patterns, pulse them, have them go to sleep, or just be on. Definitely fun to play with, I think I spent more time here fine-tuning the colors. The DPI sensitivity is very easy to use as well, and offers you five different on-board DPI memory settings. I will say, however, that 8200 DPI was far too fast for me off the bat, and I'm still working my way up to it.

Ami,

I'm looking to replace my Microsoft X8 gaming mouse and I've been looking at Logitech. One thing that other mice have that I can't stand is that the side buttons are too far behind where your thumb naturally sits. Some mice set the side buttons too far to the back end of the mouse, making the very back buttons almost impossible to use on the fly. How are the side buttons set up in that respect?
