The Logitech G600 has a unique MMO gaming design. It has a 12-button side panel, which is fairly common for this kind of mouse, but it also features a third button on top of the mouse, right under your ring finger, which triggers a new set of commands for as long as you press that specific button. This gives you even more customization options for your games. However, this widens the body of the mouse quite a bit, making it unsuitable for smaller hands and not recommended for fingertip grip, as you more than likely would accidentally press the third-click button. On the upside, the performance of this mouse is excellent and customizable, and it's very well-built.

Our Verdict

7.7 Mixed Usage

Although this mouse is designed for gaming, it can also be used at the office. It has many programmable buttons, on top of having a third-click button for your ring finger to trigger a whole new set of commands. Its wired latency might be a bit high for competitive gamers, but its overall performance is great. It should be noted that this mouse isn't recommended for the fingertip grip or people with smaller hands.

7.8 Office/Multimedia

Good for the office. It has great ergonomics, but people with small hands might find it a bit awkward to control the mouse, and people shouldn't use the fingertip grip. On the upside, it's very well-built and the side buttons can be programmed to whatever you'd like, making work in programs even faster.

5.0 Travel

Due to its wide body and always-wired design, this mouse isn't recommended for travel. It might not fit in most laptop cases and having a wire always dangling around won't be great in tight space like on a train or plane.

7.5 Video Games (FPS)

Decent for FPS games. Although its performance is amazing, and the wired click latency of this mouse is very low, it's quite heavy. There are better FPS mice out there, especially since this one isn't suitable for fingertip grip and will be a bit too wide for smaller hands.

9.1 Video Games (MMO)

Amazing for MMO games. The side panel offers 12 extra buttons, and this mouse has a unique third button on the top, right under your ring finger. This acts just like a keyboard shift key, which triggers a whole new set of programmed actions on each button, considerably increasing the number of possible actions. However, smaller hands might have trouble using this mouse, and we don't recommend using it with a fingertip grip since you'll more than likely accidentally press the third-click button.

5.5 Ultra-Light Gaming

This mouse is rather heavy and isn't suitable for ultra-light gaming.

Style

The Logitech G600 has a sleek, all-black design and has a side panel with 12 additional buttons. These buttons are the only RGB-lit zone of the mouse. Additionally, the mouse has a third-click button, where your ring finger sits. It has a fairly standard MMO mouse design, without looking too flashy.

The Logitech G600 MMO is pretty heavy and there's no way to optimize its weight, which won't be great for ultra-light gaming.

Due to its large and always-wired design, the Logitech G600 won't be very travel-friendly. This won't matter if you're looking to use it in your home setup.

Build Quality

The Logitech G600 is a very well-built mouse. The mouse is covered by a hard plastic material that has a nice smooth black finish, which feels nice. The mouse has a certain amount of heft to it and nothing feels loose or wobbly. There's nothing too special about the feet, but the overall feel of the mouse is solid.

The Logitech G600's ergonomics are great. The shape of the mouse suits itself well to a palm or claw grip but isn't recommended when using a fingertip grip. There's a small slant in the design, making it great for right-handed people. Unfortunately, there isn't a model with the side buttons on the left side of the mouse.

This mouse isn't recommended for the fingertip grip. Due to the third-click button under the ring finger, it's quite difficult to use the mouse in this grip without accidentally clicking that button.

The Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse's cable is just okay. It's fairly rigid and keeps kinks from being bent. It needs to be straightened out before using it, or else it'll be too stiff. It's not as annoying as some Razer cables, but some might feel like it creates too much drag.

The wired latency of the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming mouse is great. The mouse feels responsive and people shouldn't notice any delay when playing games.

Like all dedicated MMO mice, the Logitech G600 has plenty of customizable buttons. It even has a dedicated G-Shift key, on the third mouse click button, which can activate a whole new set of settings to every button for as long as you hold that button.

The scroll wheel of this mouse is pretty standard for MMO gaming mice. It offers good feedback thanks to its incremented design, and it also allows left and right tilt inputs, which can be programmed inside the G Hub Software to anything you want.

The G Hub software offers great features with the Logitech G600, both on Windows and macOS. You can easily program all your buttons and save up to three profiles on the mouse's onboard memory. However, we couldn't get profiles to work, and the profile switching button would only cycle between the same preset. We expect it to be fixed with a future firmware update.

Since the software is available on both Windows and macOS platforms, the Logitech G600 MMO gaming mouse has amazing compatibility.

Compared to other mice

The Logitech G600 is a great MMO mouse and one of the very few that are also compatible with macOS. It's a bit bigger than some traditional gaming mice due to the high-back design, which might not be suitable for small hands. Its performance is great and it offers plenty of programmable buttons.

Logitech G602
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech G602 and the Logitech G660 MMO Gaming are both great mice for MMOs. However, for MMO gamers who like to have a ton of programmable buttons, the G660 has nine more. It also feels better built and has a wider customizable range of CPI, but is wired-only. On the other hand, the G602 is wireless and has onboard memory so you can keep your customization options if you switch PCs.

Razer Naga Trinity
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Razer Naga Trinity and the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming are both great MMO mice. The Naga has a unique design with three optional panels to give you your choice between two, six, or 12 additional buttons. Both mice can only be used wired, though the cable on the Logitech is slightly less rigid. The Logitech can be used comfortably in both palm and claw grip by everyone except those with small hands, but isn't recommended at all for fingertip grip due to its shape. On the other hand, the Razer is best for medium and large hands in palm grip, everyone except those with small hands in claw grip, and only larger hands for fingertip grip.

Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB and the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming are similar performing MMO mice. The Logitech is a bit larger and will likely be uncomfortable in all grips for people with smaller hands, and those who prefer the fingertip grip will have a difficult time getting a good grasp of this mouse, regardless of hand size. The Corsair also has a higher max CPI, which is adjustable by increments of 1, which is outstanding. While they both have 12 additional side buttons, the Logitech also has programmable L/R tilt on its mouse wheel, which is Corsair doesn't. While the Corsair has quite a bit lower latency, it likely won't be noticeable in MMO games.
