The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a wireless gaming mouse that feels very well-built and comfortable. Its sensor has an extra-wide CPI range, and the set CPI is outstandingly consistent, whether you're moving the mouse slowly or quickly. It also has a low click latency and a high maximum polling rate, resulting in very smooth and responsive cursor movements. The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is likely better suited for a palm grip due to its shape and thumb rest. However, since its body is very large, smaller hands may have a hard time using it with any grip type. Also, while you can optimize its mass using the included weights, it's still fairly heavy with none attached. On the plus side, it's very versatile as you can use it wired or wirelessly, and it's fully compatible with both Windows and macOS.

Our Verdict

8.5 Office/Multimedia

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED Wireless is an excellent mouse for the office. It has a lot of programmable inputs, feels very well-built, and most importantly, is comfortable to use for long periods. It's great for a palm grip thanks to its rounded shape and thumb rest, though people with smaller hands may have a hard time reaching all the buttons. You can unlock its wheel for infinite scrolling, which is very useful when going through long documents.

Pros
  • Feels very well-built.
  • Lots of programmable inputs.
  • Fully compatible with Windows and macOS.
Cons
  • Large design may be uncomfortable for people with smaller hands.
  • Doesn't support Bluetooth.
7.8 Video Games (FPS)

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a very good mouse for FPS gaming. It has a very low click latency, an extra-wide CPI range, and a remarkably consistent sensor. However, it's on the heavier side and might not be light enough for many FPS gamers. On the upside, it has a lot of programmable buttons, and you can set a G-shift button to give you an additional layer of programmable inputs.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Extremely consistent CPI whether you're moving the mouse slowly or quickly.
  • Lots of programmable inputs.
Cons
  • Large design may be uncomfortable for people with smaller hands.
  • Fairly heavy.
8.5 Video Games (MMO)

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is an amazing MMO mouse. While it doesn't have a dedicated MMO design with as many side buttons, it still has more programmable inputs than most typical FPS gaming mice. It also feels very well-built, solid, and should be comfortable enough for long raids and dungeons.

Pros
  • Feels very well-built.
  • Low click latency.
  • Extremely consistent CPI whether you're moving the mouse slowly or quickly.
Cons
  • Large design may be uncomfortable for people with smaller hands.
  • Not as many side buttons as dedicated MMO mice.
6.4 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED isn't designed for this purpose and is too heavy to be considered an ultra-light gaming mouse. You can even make it even heavier by adding the included weights.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Lots of programmable inputs.
Cons
  • Large design may be uncomfortable for people with smaller hands.
  • Fairly heavy.
7.8 Travel

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a very good option for traveling. It's wireless, so you don't have to worry about the clutter of a cable, and you can easily store its receiver inside the mouse, which is convenient. However, it's a fairly big mouse that may not fit into some laptop bags. On the plus side, it feels very well-built and comfortable to use.

Pros
  • Feels very well-built.
  • Fully compatible with Windows and macOS.
Cons
  • Large design may be uncomfortable for people with smaller hands.
  • Fairly heavy.
  • Doesn't support Bluetooth.

The sensor has a remarkably wide CPI range adjustable by steps of 50. Itโ€™s outstandingly consistent, with practically no variation, whether youโ€™re moving the mouse slowly or quickly. The minimum lift-off distance is very low, so the sensor shouldn't track your movements when you reposition your mouse. The high polling rate should result in smooth cursor movements.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is the wireless equivalent of the Logitech G502 HERO. Other than that, the G502 LIGHTSPEED doesn't have any variants and it only comes in black.

Compared To Other Mice

The Logitech G502 Wireless has a remarkably wide CPI range and its sensor is outstandingly consistent, with practically no CPI variation whether you’re moving it slowly or quickly. Compared to other FPS gaming mice, it has a lot of programmable inputs, but it’s also quite heavier than others. That said, it’s a very versatile mouse thanks to its connectivity options and the fact that it’s fully compatible with both Windows and macOS. For more options, check out our recommendations for the best wireless mice, the best gaming mice, and the best wireless gaming mice.

Razer Basilisk Ultimate

The Razer Basilisk Ultimate is a slightly better gaming mouse than the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. It's a little bit lighter, has a better click latency, and its CPI buttons aren't right on the main click, which some may prefer. However, the Logitech can unlock its scroll wheel for infinite scrolling, and its software is available on macOS, while the Razer software isn't.

Logitech G502 HERO

The Logitech G502 HERO is the wired equivalent of the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. The LIGHTSPEED can be used wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver but doesn’t support Bluetooth, while the HERO is a wired-only mouse. They both have the same design and the same sensor, so they perform almost identically. 

Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED are very similar. The G502's design is a bit more ergo-shaped, thanks to the thumb rest, but its large body may not be well-suited for smaller hands. Performance-wise, it has a slightly better sensor with a wider CPI range and practically no CPI variation. It also has three side buttons, including a sniper, and two additional buttons on top of the left click, whereas the G903 only has two side buttons. That said, the G903 has an ambidextrous design that should fit most hand-sizes using any grip style, except for smaller hands with a fingertip grip.

Logitech G Pro Wireless

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a better gaming mouse than the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED, though the two have very different designs. The G Pro Wireless has a smaller, ambidextrous design with two side buttons on each side of the mouse. It's also noticeably lighter than the G502 and is suitable for a wider variety of grips, especially if you have smaller hands. The G502's design is a bit more ergo-shaped, and it's well-suited for a palm grip, except if you have smaller hands.

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a slightly better mouse than the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed. While these two mice have a very similar shape, the Logitech has a better sensor overall and a bit more programmable buttons. It also has an unlockable wheel, and its software is fully compatible with macOS. On the other hand, the Razer is a wireless-only mouse that uses an AA battery and can't recharge. It also supports a Bluetooth connection, which the Logitech doesn't.

Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED are both good versatile mice with the same sensor and a similar ergonomic design with a thumb rest. The G604 is a wireless-only mouse that supports Bluetooth. It has more buttons and programmable inputs. On the other hand, the G502 weighs less and can be used wired or wirelessly, though it doesn't support Bluetooth.

Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT perform similarly as they use the same sensor, but they have different designs. The G502 has more of an ergonomic shape with a thumb rest on the left side. It’s slightly bigger and wider and not well-suited for smaller hands using any grip type. Overall, its design is more aggressive and gamer-centric, with RGB lighting and more programmable buttons. The SUPERLIGHT has a rather sleek and simple look, with only five buttons and no RGB lighting. It’s designed for ultra-light gaming, so it’s significantly lighter and a bit smaller than the G502.

Razer Viper Ultimate

The Razer Viper Ultimate is a better FPS gaming mouse than the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED, but both are very good versatile mice. The Razer is smaller and much lighter, with an ambidextrous design that's well-suited for a fingertip grip, except if you have smaller hands. It has two side buttons on each side of its body, while the Logitech has an unlockable wheel and an additional sniper button on the side. The Logitech is very big and heavy, with an ergonomic design and a thumb rest. It should be better suited for people with larger hands.

Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor perform very similarly, but they have a completely different design. The G502 is a large and heavy mouse with an ergo-shaped body and a thumb rest. It also has significantly more programmable inputs and a more aggressive gaming look. On the other hand, the G703 is smaller and much lighter, with a sleek design and half the buttons.

Logitech G903 HERO

The Logitech G903 HERO is slightly better for gaming than the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED, but both are great versatile mice with the same sensor. The G903 has an ambidextrous design and a narrower shape that's well-suited for more hand-sizes. It's also a little bit lighter, has slightly lower click latency, and its feet provide a better gliding experience. On the other hand, the G502 feels better-built and is more comfortable overall, thanks to its ergonomic shape and thumb rest.

Razer Basilisk V3

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Razer Basilisk V3 are both versatile, full-featured gaming mice. The Basilisk is a wired-only model that's lighter and has mouse feet that glide more smoothly. It also has lower click latency. While both mice have scroll wheels with L/R tilt buttons and free-scrolling modes, only the Razer has a software option to enable automatic switching between free-scrolling and notched scrolling modes. On the other hand, the Logitech connects wirelessly with its USB receiver or wired with its charging cable. It also feels sturdier and has a more consistent sensor. Also, the customization software is compatible with Windows and macOS, while the Razer software is only compatible with Windows.

Logitech MX Master 3

The Logitech MX Master 3 is outstanding for the office, while the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is very good for gaming, though it performs well for other uses as well. The two mice are very comfortable and have ergonomic designs with thumb rests. They're both better suited for larger hands. That said, the G502 looks a lot more aggressive, with sharper edges, more buttons, and RGB lighting. You can use it wired or wirelessly, and it has a wider CPI range, a lower lift-off distance, and lower click latency. On the other hand, the MX Master features two scroll wheels, supports gesture commands, and can connect via Bluetooth.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro are two very versatile wireless mice. Both options are about the same size, but the G502 is quite a bit heavier and has a thumb rest. Its sensor is slightly better, with a wider CPI range, practically no CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. It also features three buttons on the side, including a sniper one, and two additional buttons on top of the left click, whereas the V2 only has two standard side buttons. That said, the Razer is much lighter and has a much lower click latency. It also has more connectivity options, as it supports Bluetooth and the G502 doesn’t.

Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED are quite different, though both are good wireless gaming mice. The G305 is quite a bit smaller and a little lighter. It has an ambidextrous shape that's well-suited for a fingertip grip, though people with small and medium hands can also use it with a palm or a claw grip. On the other hand, the G502 has a much more aggressive design with sharp angles and more side buttons. It feels more comfortable overall, with a right-handed slant and a thumb rest. However, people with small hands may have a hard time using it with any grip type. Performance-wise, it has a wider CPI range and a lot more programmable inputs. It's also possible to use it wired, while the G305 is wireless-only.

Razer DeathAdder V2

The Razer DeathAdder V2 and the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED are two very different mice. The Razer is an excellent wired-only FPS gaming mouse that’s small and lightweight. It’s a great fit for most hand sizes and grip types, though people with smaller hands may have a hard time using a claw or a fingertip grip. The Logitech is also a very good choice for FPS gaming and, contrarily to the Razer, can be used wired or wirelessly. It’s considerably heavier and has a fairly aggressive gamer look, with more side buttons and sharper edges. It’s not recommended for people with smaller hands.

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is a predecessor of the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. The biggest difference is that you can connect the LIGHTSPEED wirelessly with its USB receiver, and it recharges with an impressively flexible micro-USB cable. The sensor is also updated and has a much wider CPI range, a lower lift-off distance, and marginally lower click latency when wired, though it's likely too small of a difference for most people to notice.

Corsair DARK CORE RGB PRO

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Corsair DARK CORE RGB PRO are two good FPS gaming mice. Both options have a gamer-centric look and aren't for people with very small hands. The Logitech is a bit smaller and lighter and has more buttons, including an extra one on the side. On the other hand, the Corsair has both a thumb and a pinky rest, which some people may find more comfortable. It also has a lower click latency, and its polling rate goes up to 2000Hz, which is quite a bit higher than the Logitech.

Razer Naga Pro

The Razer Naga Pro and the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED are two very different mice meant for different uses. The Logitech is for FPS gaming, with three side buttons, including a sniper button and two additional buttons alongside the left click. It also has a wider CPI range, practically no CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. On the other hand, the Razer has three swappable side panels depending on the type of game you're playing, with one including 12 side buttons for MMO gaming.

SteelSeries Rival 650

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED performs a bit better than the SteelSeries Rival 650, and they both have very different designs. The Logitech is a wider mouse with an ergonomic shape and a thumb rest. It's a bit lighter, has more buttons, and has a better sensor overall. On the other hand, the SteelSeries is heavier and may feel slightly more comfortable for people who don't like having a thumb rest.

ASUS ROG Gladius III Wireless

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the ASUS ROG Gladius III Wireless are both wireless gaming mice. If you prefer heavy mice, the Logitech is the best choice since it weighs more and comes with extra weights. Also, it has a thumb rest, an extra side button, and many more programmable inputs. Also, its scroll wheel has L/R tilt buttons and a free-scrolling mode. It also has slightly lower click latency. On the other hand, the ASUS has Bluetooth support, smoother-gliding mouse feet, and a better charging cable.

Razer DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Razer DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed are both wireless gaming mice. If you prefer mice with a more ergonomic shape and a thumb rest, the Logitech is a better choice. Its scroll wheel unlocks for free scrolling, making it more versatile. It has two edge buttons, a CPI button, and a dedicated sniper button. If you need a wireless mouse with Bluetooth, the Razer is a better choice. Also, its mouse feet glide smoother, and it has lower click latency.
