The Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED can be used for a lot of different things and does them well. It’s made for MMO games and has a short delay between clicking. It works really well overall, and its shape and features also make it great for the office. It has a lot of buttons that can be programmed and is a nice step up from the Logitech G602. But people with small hands might not be able to use it because of how long it is.
The G604 Lightspeed Wireless for the right hand is amazing because it has 15 inputs. On the top, it has two click panels, two DPI-switching buttons on the left side of the left click panel, and a scroll wheel with a click-down and two tilt inputs. The tilt inputs are an old feature that I’ve seen come back on a few mice in the last few months.
By pressing the side of the scroll wheel in either direction, you can add two more customizable inputs. It’s a surprisingly useful addition that I really like using for quick-to-tap macro buttons in games and as a navigation tool in Chrome and other apps.

Where to buy Logitech G604 Mouse?
The top panel also has two buttons below the scroll wheel. One of them lets you switch between a free spin and a segmented scroll, and the other lets you switch between wireless modes and pair Bluetooth. The most important part is the side buttons. There are two rows of three macro buttons, each with two buttons, on the thumb side of the mouse.
The buttons are thin rectangles that stick out from the body. This makes it easier to keep track of which button you’re resting on so you don’t accidentally click the wrong one. Each button has a slight curve at the bottom, which makes it easy to pull from the bottom to the top.
Inside the G604 Lightspeed is Logitech’s Hero 16K sensor, which, as the name suggests, can track up to 16,000dpi as fast as 400 inches per second. The mouse is a little on the heavy side. With the battery inside, it weighs 4.8 ounces, so you might not be able to move as quickly as you would with a competitive mouse. But it is still fast and accurate enough to work in most games, including the MOBAs and RPGs it was made for.
The G Hub software gives the Logitech G604 Lightspeed a lot of customization options, including, of course, a lot of DPI settings. It lets you make a lot of profiles and macros, including ones that are specific to a game. Settings can be saved on the mouse and even carried over to Bluetooth connections with other computers. However, the process for moving G Hub profiles onto the mouse was a bit confusing.
