Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse review: Expensive but excellent
It'll set you back a pretty penny, but your investment in the Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse will pay off with great accuracy, more customisation options than you can count and a supremely comfortable grip.
- Superb tracking at up to 16,000 DPI
- Very comfortable in the hand
- Adjustable weights to suit every gamer
- Wired or wireless recharging
- It's quite expensive
- Lefties are once again left out of the G502 party
It's no exaggeration to say that Logitech's G502 design is one of our favourite gaming mice families. The core design hasn't changed markedly with the Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse, but the inclusion of a more precise sensor and improved driver software gives it a lot more flexibility. That's flexibility that comes with a price, quite literally, and while we do love it, it's not going to be a price that every gamer will want to pay.
- Heavy on the left-hand side buttons
- I want to paint it silver and turn it into a cybermat
- Single RGB logo light
- Lefties are once again left out
- Supports up to 16,000 DPI with quick switching
- 11 buttons, so more than you have actual fingers
- Weighting makes it easy to customise to your needs
- Wireless performance is very good with solid battery life
- Easy colour customisation
- Macro support
- G Hub works well across PC and Mac
- This is an amazing mouse...
- ...at a premium price point
I really don't want the Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse to go back after my review. It's precise, it's feature rich, and it's comfortable enough to use for both my gaming needs and my everyday mousing usage.
So it's a slam-dunk recommendation, right?
Well, not exactly. Leaving aside the left-handed issues (sorry, southpaws, although we do have a range of excellent options for ambidextrous use in our round-up of the best gaming mice) there's the issue of cost.
The Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse retails in Australia for $249.95, and that's a lot of money to spend on a mouse, even one this nice. By way of comparison, it's not hard to pick up the cabled G502 Hero for around half that price.
But if your budget can stand it, or you can find one at a bargain price, it's an exceptional mouse. Maybe if I do spray paint it silver, Logitech won't notice that I've still got it?
