Best Logitech Mice


  1. Best Logitech Mouse For Work

    The best Logitech mouse for work and everyday browsing we've tested is the Logitech MX Master 3S; however, all models in the MX Master lineup are great choices. The differences between versions are pretty minor, and older generations frequently go on sale. Each mouse in this series has a comfortable, right-handed shape with a thumb rest with an integrated button for gesture commands. They all pair wirelessly with up to three devices via Bluetooth or USB receiver and have an impressive advertised battery life of up to 70 days. They also have two separate scroll wheels, one on the side for horizontal scrolling and another on top that handles vertical scrolling.

    The specific changes with the newest version include quieter buttons and higher sensitivity levels, which is helpful for 4k displays with much higher pixel densities that require increased sensitivity levels to produce cursor movements at a comfortable speed. It's also the first mouse in the lineup using Logitech's newly developed BOLT receiver, designed to provide improved wireless security and performance in congested signal environments.

    If you're interested in something more ergonomic, the Logitech Lift is a vertical mouse that you hold in a 'handshake position.' This design is very comfortable and may be ideal for you if you've had problems with more conventionally-shaped mice. It doesn't have all the productivity features as the MX Master mice, but it's less expensive, is better suited for smaller-sized hands, and there's a left-handed version available.

  2. Best Budget Logitech Mouse For Work

    Searching for the best Logitech work mouse at a budget price point? We recommend the Logitech M720 Triathlon. This mouse offers many of the same features as our first pick, the Logitech MX Master 3S, though the materials don't feel as high-quality. This mouse has an ergonomic, right-handed shape and is well-suited for all hand sizes using most grip types. You can connect this mouse wirelessly with its USB receiver or via Bluetooth, and it wirelessly pairs with up to three devices simultaneously.

    While it doesn't have a thumb scroll wheel like the MX Master 3S, its scroll wheel has left and right inputs, and you can toggle between a controlled, notched scrolling mode and a much faster free-scrolling mode. It has three side buttons and a button hidden in the thumb rest, which by default allows you to perform gesture commands. Logitech advertises a battery life of up to 24 months from a single AA battery, and it has companion software that offers all the expected customization options, including custom profile settings and button programming. There's also a compartment within the mouse where you can store the USB receiver when it's not in use.

  3. Best Logitech Mouse For Gaming

    The best Logitech gaming mouse is the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. It's also frequently available on sale around this time of year and has recently fallen to its lowest price ever. As its name suggests, this mouse weighs only 59g, which is about the same weight as a tennis ball. This ultra-lightweight construction makes it easier to move quickly and accurately, making it an ideal choice if you play fast-paced, competitive games. Despite being so light, it also feels very well-built, and its medium-sized, symmetrical shape is almost universally well-suited to all hand sizes and grip types. In terms of raw performance, it connects wirelessly with an included USB receiver and has an exceptionally precise and consistent sensor and remarkably low click latency, so gaming feels snappy and responsive in any genre.

    With all these high-end specs, this mouse carries a premium price tag whenever it's not on sale. Also, while it may not be a big issue for everyone, it uses an older micro USB charging cable rather than a more common, standard USB-C cable.

  4. Best Budget Logitech Mouse For Gaming

    If you're looking for Logitech's best budget gaming mouse, we recommend the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. It's an impressive wireless all-rounder that offers terrific sensor performance and click latency but won't break the bank. It also doesn't have an overly aggressive gamer look, and it doesn't have any flashy RGB lighting, so it blends well into a home or an office setting. Its build quality is great and closely resembles some of Logitech's more premium offerings. It's also available in a range of colors to match your setup. The symmetrical shape is comfortable whether you're right or left-handed, and it's compact enough to slip into most laptop bags for use on the go.

    It uses Logitech's USB Unifying Receiver to connect wirelessly and has an impressive advertised battery life of over 250 hours using a single AA battery. There's also a storage compartment for the USB receiver, so you don't accidentally lose it when it isn't in use. There's robust customization software that lets you reprogram buttons, set up custom profiles, and change sensor settings. Altogether, with its wireless versatility and unmatched budget price point, this is Logitech's best wireless gaming pick at a budget price point for most people.

  5. Best Multi-Genre Budget Logitech Mouse For Gaming

    If you're on a budget, the best Logitech gaming mouse for playing multiple genres is the Logitech G502 HERO. Its unique features make it more versatile than our best budget gaming mouse pick, the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. It feels very sturdy and has an ergonomic right-handed shape that features a thumb rest, making it a comfortable option for long play sessions. Altogether it has 12 buttons, and you can reprogram any of them using the customization software, making it a great pick for games with lots of controls, like MOBAs or MMOs.

    The scroll wheel also has left and right tilt inputs and has two distinct scrolling modes; a precise notched scrolling mode and a quicker free-scrolling mode, which is a handy feature for scrolling quickly through content when you're not gaming. Performance-wise, it has excellent click latency, meaning you won't notice any delay in-game. Its major drawback is that it's heavy, so it isn't the best mouse for FPS games, which are typically much lighter so you can make movements as quickly and accurately as possible. This is the wired version, but there's also a wireless version available, the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED.

    Logitech recently released new versions of both the wired and wireless versions, called the Logitech G502 X and Logitech G502 X PLUS. These new versions are somewhat lighter and feature several minor changes, including easier-to-reach buttons, new optical switches designed to be more durable, and a softer visual design. However, these new versions are still significantly more expensive, and if these changes aren't priorities for you, the previous generation remains a better choice.

Compared to other brands


  • Very well-built. Most of Logitech's mice are made of very sturdy-feeling materials. The mice don't flex much, and the buttons are clicky and responsive.
  • Excellent sensor performance. Logitech is known for its high-performance mouse sensors that are accurate and consistent, especially on their more gaming-oriented models.
  • Robust customization options. Logitech's G HUB software allows for a lot of customization, whether you want to control sensor settings or your RGB lighting. It's also available on macOS, making a Logitech mouse a versatile option for people who have both Windows and Mac computers.
  • Stiff cables. Logitech's wired mice tend to have stiff cables that tangle up and retain kinks from the way they've been packaged.
  • Premium prices for wireless flagship models. Logitech's best mice are among the industry leaders in both productivity and gaming. However, there's a significant price bump between their mid-range offerings and their premium models, especially for wireless models.

Logitech vs Razer

While Logitech started making office models and remains the industry leader for productivity mice, Razer has focused exclusively on gaming models until only recently. In recent years, Logitech and Razer have been very close competitors in sensor technology and gaming performance. However, Razer's technology has advanced slightly ahead of Logitech in select areas, notably in motion-sync implementation and higher maximum polling rates. Additionally, Razer has long championed optical switches in their designs. On the other hand, Logitech has stuck to more conventional mechanical switches and has only begun experimenting with optical switches in their most recent releases.

Logitech vs SteelSeries

SteelSeries rose to prominence in step with the popularity of esports and the growing competitive FPS gaming scene. While SteelSeries remains a prominent player in the competitive gaming peripheral marketplace, Logitech has moved decisively into this sphere in recent years. Many players have taken notice of Logitech's impressive technological gains over SteelSeries, notably in the field of wireless performance. At this point, many pro players use Logitech mice as they continue to invest more heavily in esports and forge close partnerships with prominent streamers.

Logitech vs Corsair

Corsair began producing computer components, like memory and coolers, and they've since expanded to manufacture an array of gaming peripherals, including mice. Today, they've got a wide lineup of mice from FPS or MMO-focused models to more portable travel options. Corsair mice are generally very well-built and can match Logitech in terms of build quality. However, they haven't produced any gaming models as lightweight as Logitech, and speaking broadly, the raw performance of their mice falls just short of Logitech's admittedly high standard. That said, Corsair has been an early pioneer in delivering higher maximum polling rates for some of their wired and wireless models, which is something Logitech has yet to do.

Altogether, Logitech produces some of the best-performing mice we've tested. While Logitech got their start making mice for office work, these days, Logitech's gaming division also produces leading gaming options, and they've made noteworthy contributions in improving wireless technology. Their current sensors are widely considered some of the best available. Although, they've been slow to experiment with more cutting-edge technologies that other manufacturers have embraced, including higher maximum polling rates and optical switches. Unfortunately, their higher-end wireless options also tend to be expensive, but since they make a lot of different mice, you're more than likely going to find one that fits your budget.

Lineup

M-Series - Logitech's M-Series includes mice designed for work and everyday use. They also range broadly in price, from budget three-button wired mice to more complicated, mid-range wireless models with an array of productivity features.

MX Master Series - Logitech's MX Master series are more premium work models which expand on their entry-level M-series. These mice have an additional focus on performance, versatility, and ergonomics and are marketed toward a range of professionals, including coders, graphic designers, and data scientists.

G-Series - The G-Series are Logitech's gaming collection and include a mix of mice designed for specific genres and available at a range of price points, including basic wired models, mid-range multi-genre designs, and high-end lightweight designs. These mice have developed a reputation for their overall build quality standards and reliable high performance, particularly for their wireless performance.

Miscellaneous - Some of Logitech's products are released outside their regular classification system. A recent example is the Logitech Lift.
