Logitech G502 Lightspeed wireless mouse review


Any gamer or computer user worth their salt will tell you, a mouse is as important as a keyboard in a setup. I’ve used multiple mice brands, from Razer and Corsair to SteelSeries, finally landing on Logitech. After using the Logitech G502 for the better part of a year, it was time for an upgrade. The only problem — I’ve become so accustomed to the shape of the G502, no other mouse feels good in my hand.

The mouse used by serious FPS gamers

After doing quite a bit of research and comparing the two, I figured, “Hey why not?” After tracking one down at a local Best Buy, I eagerly rushed home to try it out. Right out of the box I noticed there were no included instructions on how to set it up, but after going to the Logitech website it was pretty simple. I had never actually used a wireless mouse and was pretty skeptical, especially about the long battery life that Logitech boasted.

Upon plugging in, the mouse seemed slightly lighter, but overall had about the same feel to it. The light-speed was plugged in no longer than 15 minutes before Logitech software showed fully charged. That seemed a little sketchy to me, having bought tons of electronics that usually need a good 30 minutes to an hour before fully charged and raring to go. Although a little skeptical I unplugged it and immediately put it to the test in a game of Rainbow Six Siege.

Fast forward some time…

After two months of extremely heavy usage, it still shows no signs of battery degradation and only required a full charge every two weeks. However, I realized after having no cord attached to my mouse, every time while charging the light-speed it felt like tugging a 5-pound weight around. All jokes aside if you seriously like the G502 or you’re just in the market for a wireless mouse, I highly recommend the wireless light-speed.

The USB dongle storage is located on the bottom of the mouse. There’s also a placeholder for weights to change the mouse’s pull and drag.

At the end of the day, everyone will have their favorite mouse brand. Everyone has unique hand sizes and shapes, so this mouse may not be a perfect fit. However, if you are in the market for a new mouse and want wireless, I urge you to try the Logitech G502.

The Good

  • 11 customizable buttons
The Bad

  • Size and orientation might not fit everyone
  • Pricey
