Introduction

This is a very interesting product with a lot of capabilities for sysadmins, webmasters, programmers or any IT professional. I would recommend it despite several flows.

But please be aware that it has three major defects (two of them are actually software defects and extend to all Logitech mice):

The mouse slides and tracks very well on white PCB cutting boards, which can be recommended instead of gaming mousepad.

This is the first mouse with fingertip grip in which you essentially holding mouse on the array of twelve buttons located like keyboard numpad on the left side of the mouse. The side buttons are small so it will take some time to get accustomed to your thumb. They are canted though, which helps tell the difference.

The wheel is OK, but not great. Left and right clicks of the wheel ("tilt" clicks) are actually useful (see below). There is no possibility to switch the wheel into free spinning mode like in Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX. That can be considered a defect of the mouse, but frankly I rarely use this feature, although it is helpful in dealing with large spreadsheets.

It requires Logitech gaming software installed not the usual SetPoint software. This software has macro capabilities and the ability to write macros in LUA language. That make the mouse a class of its own and here you can really utilize "inconvenient" buttons for some for particular application macros.

Dpi scaling is useful for non gamers too. In comparison a mouse set to a lower dpi will move slower on screen (set to 400dpi mouse will move the pointer 400 pixels for every inch the mouse moves where as with 2000dpi you can cover a whole 1080i screen with only an inch of mouse movement). Lower dpi can be useful when an action requires more precise control and higher is great for when the pointer has to travel far and wide.

General rule of thumb is that for normal work if you use fingertip grip your finger movement should be able to cover 2/3 of the screen. This typically means something in between 2000 and 4000 DPI.

Mouse numpad

The mouse has a panel of twelve buttons (four vertical columns three button each) on the left side.

In the most basic setup they can be mapped as numeric pad. But the problem is that the most useful three buttons on numpad (Ins, Del and Enter) would be located in the last, forth row. Without changing grip those buttons are not usable. I think only three, or, if you are agile, six buttons in the first two columns are usable without changing grip. For buttons in the third and forth column you probably need iether rotate hand position so the buttons come on top, or change the grip. I have found rotating mouse more convenient than changing grip.

This "mouse numpad" makes grip less convenient that say in Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX or other similar mice. Holding does mouse gently using fingertip grip (see Mouse Grip types) does not generate clicks: buttons are rather resistant to accidental clicking. That also means that if you appreciated capability of G-class mice, you can use this mouse as a regular mouse ignoring left side buttons. That means that the flexibility of Logitech gaming software can be obtained for approximately $35 (the lowest price I saw on Amazon).

Buttons are pretty hard to push, so you will never push them accidentally. But its also somewhat limits their usefulness. The simplest buttons to push are two bottom buttons in the first and second columns. For pushing buttons in the third and forth columns you generally need to change grip.

Left side buttons are great as "scratchpad": for assigning temporary strings ot HTML tags to insert or simple repeating actions. This capability of G600 proved to be a great asset in Web page editing.

Wheel click is also pretty hard. But right tilt and left tilts clicks are so distinct that it is the first mouse that I used, in in which they can safely be assigned different actions without danger of false positives.

Wheel click is also pretty hard. But right tilt and left tilts clicks are so distinct that it is the first mouse that I used, in in which they can safely be assigned different actions without danger of false positives.

And in IE tilt left is mapped to back by default which is very convenient, much more so that side buttons on a typical five button mouse.

All-in-all despite shortcomings in design of left set of buttons, in skilled hands G600 is a more powerful instrument then Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX

Unique receded button on the right side from the wheel -- Bravo Logitech

I always thought the one of the best way to add buttons the mouse you be to split left and right buttond in two and recede outliner buttons more deeply so that they will be distigudhible. Now G600 makes the first step in this direction: it split the right button into two.

The mouse has a unique second receded button on the right side from the wheel. Due to its reseeded position it is very convenient for clicking with the ring finger. That's a very interesting, innovative solution from Logitech, the feature that I never saw before. Like left bottom button in Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX and Logitech Marathon Mouse M705 it open new possibilities of making your work more productive.

Logitech Gaming Software (LGS)

For all Logitech G line products configuration and macros functionality requires installation of drivers and software to function properly. The software Logitech provides is called Gaming Software or LGS. It. The Logitech Web page detects your version of Windows automatically and suggest the version on LGS to install

Logitech Gaming Software - Logitech Support

Software Version: 8.57.145
Post Date: Oct 28, 2014
OS: Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista
File Size: 65.7 MB

Updates in the recent version:

•Added support for the G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard
Added Input Analysis support for the following devices: G600, G910, G510s, G19s, G105, G13
 

You can also update software from within LGS. Click on ^ sign above ? (help) button in GUI and select "check for updates".

It provides approximately the same functionality as Microsoft Intellitype/Intellipoint with some additional limitations and worse interface. For example you can't redefine such keys as numeric pad keys, stop key for multimedia, etc. The only target assignment are G-keys. That's a very limiting architectural decision, which makes the product look amateurish in comparison with alternatives such as Microsoft Sidewinder.

But the ability to write macros in LUA changes everything. It is really a step forward as you can use full-fledged scripting language for generation of strings (for example various types of timestamp) text transformations, etc.

Due to the size this part was moved to the separate page. See Logitech Gaming Software. See also discussion of LGS for keyboard:

 

Profiles

Initially a single profile called default profile exists. Commands and macros from this profile are applicable to all the applications unless they are overwritten by application-specific profile macros.

Each application can have a profile attached to it. That means that your macros can be made application specific. You need to access the profile bar in order to maintain existing profiles and create new. To do so:

Here is relevant part of Logitech FAQ that describes the creation of a new profile:

To create a new profile:

  1. Open the Logitech Gaming Software:

    Start > All Programs > Logitech > Logitech Gaming Software 8.x

  2. Click the glowing G-Keys.
  3. Move the cursor over the "+" icon in Profiles and look for the down arrow to appear.
  4. Click the down arrow under the "+" and click "Create New Profile."

    This window will pop up showing what is required to set up a profile.

    • Name - Enter a name for your new profile.
    • Description - (Optional) Add a description of the profile.
    • Select Game Executable - Locate and select the .exe file.

      NOTE: Some games use launcher .exe applications, so make sure the profile is associated with the game's .exe file and not the launcher's. Other games use separate .exe files for single and multiplayer modes (for example, Call of Duty). If your profile isn't working, check Task Manager after the game has launched to determine if it's associated with the correct .exe. (See 28140 for more information.)

    • Lock profile while game is running - Sometimes, background applications may jump to the "top" and disrupt your profile from activating. If this happens, you can select this check box to lock the profile so it's active regardless of the "top" application. Locking a profile may also help where the profile works when the game is launched, but stops working afterward.
    • Copy from an existing profile - If you prefer, you can base a new profile off one that already exists. This is useful when you're making profiles for games with both single and multiplayer .exe files.

      NOTE: If you have a G-Series keyboard with an LCD screen installed, you'll see a slightly different window with an additional option.

    • Select using GamePanel display - Select this option if you're having trouble associating a profile with the correct .exe (see 28139 for more information).
  5. Click OK to finish setting up your new profile.

Your new profile should now be visible in the Profiles area at the top of the window. If the Logitech Gaming Software was able to detect an icon for the application before, it should appear with your profile

You can print profile using print icon on the profile bar. That provides convenient cheat-sheets.

Here are some additional links from Logitech FAQ

Managing profiles for the G510s Gaming Keyboard using Logitech Gaming Software -

You can configure your gaming keyboard to behave differently for each program on your computer using the Profiles feature in the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).

NOTE: Every profile created is shared with other installed LGS-compatible products, so a profile chosen for a keyboard will be the same profile used by an LGS-compatible mouse.

To learn about:

For help with:

Macros in LGS

The macro and quick key functions are easy to use. They can be assigned to profiles for individual programs, for example Frontpage. Macro recorder allows recoding intervals between key presses. There are two ways to record macros:

You can create a profile and assign record macros for ANY program. Just open up the key profiler program, and select the program's EXE file, and give it a name.

Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) shares the profiles between your G-Series keyboard and your gaming mouse, so no manual profile linking is needed. Macros and keystrokes you configured for your G-Series keyboard can be assigned to your gaming mouse, and mouse button presses you configured for your gaming mouse can be assigned to your G-Series keyboard.

In "G-screen" software displays the G-keys and profile bar. If you hover the mouse on the particular G-key, the key is highlighted and the down arrow appears. Clicking of it brings menu which consist of several items, which corresponds to multiple ways to create your macros:

After you select the function to assign the key, click OK. This will apply the new function and you'll see it named with the name you have chosen over the key in the window (for example the key will be labeled as "Forward", "Back", "Left", and "Right", etc). To unassigned a G-Key, either right-click and select "Unassign", or drag the command from the key to the trash icon in the LGS window.

See Programming gaming keyboard G-Keys using Logitech Gaming Software - Logitech FAQ

You can record macros on the fly and assign them to selected G-key:

Operations with macros

There are several operations with macros that are possible in LGS:

Macros can be moved with the profile by dragging them with the mouse to a new G-key.

As command list on the left side contains all created macros unassigning macro from the key does not delete it. It can later be assigned.

Unfortunately you can't move macros between profiles.

LUA scripting

Each profile can have one script attached to it. You can access the script editor in order to maintain scripts from the main Gaming Software window. To do so:

The built-in Script editor window is displayed. You can use its menus and features to perform a range of tasks, including the creation and saving of new scripts, and the importing and exporting of scripts.

All profile scripts are activated when the profile is activated and deactivated when the profile is deactivated.
There is Lua support material available, describing how scripting works, the functions available, and so on, as well as some samples and other documentation. This documentation is accessible from the Help menu of the Script window.

LUA functions

The functions available to you in Lua fall into two categories:

  1. G-keyboard LUA API: functions added to the Lua engine by Logitech. These are documented in the Scripting API that can be accessed via the script editor Help menu.
  2. LUA built-in functions. Functions that came with the Lua engine (i.e. built-in functions defined by the LUA language specs). These are documented in the Lua Online Reference that can be accessed via the script editor Help menu.

All basic built-in functions described in the Lua Online Reference are available in Logitech's implementation, with the exception of the following packages: file.*, io.*, os.*, package.* and possibly debug.*. In logitech forum was reported that debug.traceback() will crash the software, but other debug functions may work.

No functions built into Logitech implementation of Lua that give you direct access to Windows DLLs and Logitech doesn't provide any wrapper functions for that breaks portability: any such code wouldn't work on the Mac version of the software.

I can't seem to get my G600 to correctly remember a key macro that has been pre-recorded and saved prior to trying to use it in a game.

From the help topic Troubleshooting mouse button assignments and macros using Logitech Gaming Software I know the correct profile is loading because I set a specific color for the left side buttons when the profile is active and that is displayed. I also tried locking the profile while the game is running, tried sung persistent profiles, verified the correct .exe is selected for the game, and I'm only trying to run the macro in single player mode (I don't even think Dragon Age II has a multiplayer mode).

I have read the article Configuring the G600 gaming mouse buttons and found I have been programming it correctly. I also read Programming gaming-mouse buttons using Logitech Gaming Software just in case I missed something but didn't find it any more illuminating than the previous article.

I have even tried reading posts about scripting but this goes way beyond what I want to do, so gave up on that for now.

I have a particular Multi-key command I want to execute whenever I press a specifically pre-defined key. It appears to work with no problem when I test it but absolutely will not work in-game. The keyboard macro calls for the game to enter consol mode, type out a command, and return.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

The U77.02_B0017 firmware supposed to fix the 'random movement' issue with the g600. But it does not although frequency is less then before.
Logitech Forums

Logi Nu

First off, great mouse! Only issue is, at random times my mouse cursor will quickly jerk across the screen. This always occurs in a vertical or horizontal fashion. It also appears to be more prevelant in MMOs, or situations in which I use the G9-G20 buttons (thumb buttons). This also very rarely occurs when switching profiles. I've found a few other posts around the web of people having the same issues;

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2343142

http://www.forums.custompcreview.com/f50/logitech-g600-random-cross-screen-movements-958/

I've modified the polling rate as well as the DPI which does not appear to make a difference. I do not have Angle Snapping enabled.

Dear H h,

Thank you for contacting Logitech's Customer Care.

From your email we understand, that the cursor of Logitech G600 quickly jerks across the screen. We are really sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with your Logitech G600 and please let us apologize for the difficulties and inconvenience you experienced in respect to this. We will be more than happy to help you with this concern.

We do understand that you have been through some troubleshooting in order to resolve your issue and you have been unable to resolve it so far. However, would you mind if we ask some more questions that could help us identify your issue? We do apologize if you have already been through some of the following troubleshooting steps.

1, Please reinstall Setpoint from http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/support/mice/g600-mmo-gaming-mouse

2, Please test it with different games as on the forum it can be read, the problem primarily occurs with one particular game mainly and there are games which it is working with

I sent them a link to this thread and it looks like they read it. Reinstalling Setpoint is of course not solving the problem.

Anyone can confirm this error in other games beside:

League of Legends

Hey!

I too changed my mouse to use profiles on the computer rather than the mouse and then unchecked the "Acceleration (Enhance Pointer Precision) option under Pointer Settings in the Logitech Gaming Software. I also went into the Control Panel in Windows and in Mouse settings unchecked the "Enhance Pointer Precison" there. I had to turn my DPI to get a pointer speed I could use (it's 2200 up from 1800) but I no longer have the jumping issue in League of Legends. I haven't checked other games yet but League was my jumpiest game--probably because I clicked so much more there.

Hope this helps!

a working fix : to swith to computer memory instead of onboard memory.

cons, the LGS must be running in the background, and you can't use your mouse on another comp, you have to redo everything each time, a total shame from logitech.

I'm wondering if they do want to fix it... I'm about to get the 4th G600 from logitech, and the customer care each time acts like i'm the only one to have that issue... I'll keep bothering them unitl i can get a working mouse.

I just bought this mouse. installed the latest drivers, and I also have the jumping mouse issue on league of legends when i click too much. REALLY easy fix though. in the software, on the home page, switch it from on board memory to pc memory, for the profiles.

Also, take off enhance pointer precision (acceleration) in the software. Then goto your control panel and ALSO take off enhance point precision in the mouse properties. Gives you 100% accuracy with 0 accel, and the bug fix.

0% acceleration is so odd for laser mice. Usually you only see this feature in optical and its impossible to get rid of it in laser mice. Once again logitech makes an outstanding mouse. No acceleration and a bug fix all in one.

Logitech lost me as a customer. As of today, I have a brand new Razer Naga 2012, build quality is surprisingly higher than Logitech, and the drivers are on a completely different level (unlike Logitechs broken software, a PITA since 2005 for me). Everything works as it is supposed to, for now.

I will be recommending the Razer Naga to all of my students from now on, because it's perfect for Lightroom and Photoshop work. Talk about efficiency with the 12 thumb keys! :smileyhappy:

We have heard your concerns related to the G600 click jump issue and while we've failed to come back here and update you as often as promised (we will improve on that front moving forward), we have been actively working on fixing the underlying technical issue.

In October of 2012, we implemented changes in the G600 firmware that remedied the click jump issue. If your mouse was manufactured after this date it will not be impacted by this issue.

To check when your mouse was manufactured, download the Logitech Gaming Software (if you haven't already), click on the gear-shaped "Settings" icon in the bottom right corner, and choose the G600 tab. If your firmware is version U77.01_B0016 or later, your mouse was manufactured after October 2012.

If you have a mouse that is exhibiting the click jump issue and your firmware is version U77.00_B0012, your mouse was manufactured prior to October 2012. Please contact our customer support to seek resolution.

When we implemented those changes to the firmware in October, we also added the ability to update the G600 firmware over USB to address any future issues that might crop up. We've recently seen reports of cursor latency with the G600 that can be addressed through a firmware update of this type.

We have identified the root cause of this issue and we are working on an updated firmware to resolve these issues. If you are experiencing cursor latency with the G600, this new firmware will be available for download within the next four weeks.

If you have any questions, please continue to ask them in this thread. We will be monitoring it and responding to inquires.

Thanks for your reply.

I have firmware U77.01_B0016 which according to you should be manufactured after October 2012 but I still have the click jump issue. Should I and people like me contact customer support as well or wait it out for a firmware update since you said our versions can be updated?

So is the U77.02_B0017 firmware supposed to fix the 'random movement' issue with the g600? I updated to the new firmware a few days ago in hopes that it would fix this issue, but after playing wow for the past few days I still get the random 'INSTANTLY SNAP TO LOOK AT THE SKY/LEFT/RIGHT/ETC" issue all over again. It only happens randomly but it always seems to be at the worst possible times.

If it's supposed to fix this issue, it still needs work.

try reinstalling LGS. run the installer as Administrator (with elevated rights).

For macros to work, there are two device drivers that must be properly installed (Logitech Gaming Virtual Keyboard, and Logitech Gaming Virtual Mouse). these virtual devices are actually where macroe'd keystrokes and mouse actions come from, and if they aren't working your macros won't do anything.

These device drivers are installed along with the rest of LGS, but fairly late in the installation process so it 's possible that part of LGS is installed and working, but those two devices aren't, if the installer had a problem part way through.

[Jun 04, 2014] Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse

Amazon.com

Is this mouse ok for smaller hands? Mine are, and though it's hard to tell from the photos, it looks rather large...

A:

Measuring the bottom it's 4x3. It doesn't seem much larger than the average mouse but it's higher. The side buttons are very small. I have medium size female hands and it's about perfect for me. Also it is very sensitive and for the top regular right/left click buttons you can press really far back on them and still have them work so it should be fine.

This mouse is awesome at Excel. Check out www.excelmouse.com to see how this mouse can best be used(cool diagrams.)

You can use the myWorkbook (part of excel) to create background macros which can be bound to mouse buttons.

Also, just assigning common keys to buttons saves SO much time. For example, having the enter key bound to the click down of the scroll wheel lets me speed through menu options because my finger is always on the enter key.
If you want to see how I set up mine, check out the website.

Are the buttons too close together for your thumb to accurately hit? It seems with 4 rows of keys it might be easy to hit multiple at the same time. Mar 24, 2014 No, they are well enough apart that they are easily pushed separately but it does take time to get used to it. I often switch between a palm grip and a claw grip depending on what I'm doing. Is this mouse only suited for one style of grip preference or not?

Feb 3, 2014 It seems to be a bit more loving to a palm grip, but either will work how do i program the buttons Dec 12, 2013 There are detailed instructions in the program that comes with the mouse. You will need to go to Logitech's website to download the program and then install it. From there just follow the prompts or search online for a help guide. You tube has several available.

It comes down to individual products. I have two G500s, one I have had for 2 years, the other for about 18 months. Both of the cords are still in tip top shape, and I dont do anything in particular to take care of them. If you are worried about the cord fraying from friction on your mouse surface, you could pick up something like the ROCCAT Apuri. The mouse bungee arm will keep your cord up off the desk or table. But in direct response to your question, it should not be a problem.

[Dec 10, 2014] G600 + LGS 8.5x - Reverting to On Board Memory every user account change

This switching LGS to On Board Memory Mode is observable in other cases too. Pretty annoying...
12-09-2014 | Logitech Forums
Swarf

Hi,

Hoping someone can offer some suggestions.

On my PC (Win7 64 Home - doesnt allow specific user restrictions) i have two users setup. On one, i use game detection mode with many profiles, pollings and speeds - admin. The other is setup for default Windows - nothing fancy stock standard LGS not really used - standard user.

User 1 remains logged in all the time as stuff is running - switch user is used to get out. User 2 logs in emails etc logs out.

Now the problem, switching back to User 1 reverts both the mouse mode to default scrolling colours profile (guessing profile 1 of 3) instead of what it was set to #2 default white colour, and LGS to On Board Memory Mode. Frustrating as hell. Every time i need to open LGS and change to Game detection again and change the LGS window to button profile before the profile will activate again.

On user 2, i've tried both Game detection mode & On board, with a default profile setup, i've tried changing the install to not be used for user 2 (LGS doesnt seem to support installing for a particular user/admin). I don't need LGS for user 2 if it constantly overrides user 1 settings.

I have tried 8.53 and 8.57 both with the same results.

ANY ideas would be fantastic to have User 1 not change when swapping user accounts.

If LGS/G600 cannot handle different settings per user, i would like to set in stone fixed settings to be used by all users.

likbez

Hi Swarf,

Thanks a lot for your post !

I experience this problem too. It's pretty annoying. I think there are other situations when mouse reverts to on board memory. But having multiple users on the computer is probably a precondition. But for me it is happing once a week or may be even more often.

Nothing alerts you about it, but you can reprogram buttons on the default profile so that they instantly be recognizable. I use Show desktop for all re-assignable buttons. This way you at least get a hint that something wrong when push such a button.

I think this is an annoying defect of this product and Logitech should troubleshoot and fix it.

LGS 8.35 is now available for G-Series keyboards!
