The Logitech G604 Lightspeed is a versatile gaming mouse with multiple programmable buttons that’s designed for MMO players. Meanwhile, the Logitech G703 Lightspeed is designed for gamers that play mostly shooters with its lightweight build. Clearly, these two target different types of gamers. So which one should you buy? Here is our comparison of the two.

The Logitech G604 is bulkier and heavier than the G703.

Weighing 4.76 ounces and measuring 5.12 x 3.15 x 1.77 inches, the Logitech G604 is the heavier and bulkier mouse. People with smaller hands might not find this mouse to be the most comfortable.

The G703 also comes with 10g weight that you place inside the mouse if you find it too light.

You’ll need to download the Logitech G Hub software in order to utilize the features of these gaming mice. The Logitech G Hub software allows you to adjust the dpi, assign buttons, adjust the polling rate and in the case of the Logitech G703, play with the RGB settings. You can also save profiles on the mice themselves since they have onboard memories.
Both of these gaming mice have multiple programmable buttons, but clearly, the Logitech G604 is the winner here. It has 15 programmable buttons in total, and with Logitech’s G-Shift function, the number of buttons is doubled. In contrast, the Logitech G703 only has six programmable buttons.

The Logitech G604 and G703 come with Logitech’s HERO 25K sensor.
When it comes to gaming, the Logitech G604 and G703’s HERO 25K is excellent. It has a dpi range of 100 – 25,600 for accuracy and better control of your sensitivity rating.
