  • Comfortable and well-built
  • Good sensor performance
  • Good ergonomic design
  • Pricey for an ultra-light gaming mouse


Logitech G502 Lightspeed feels exceptionally comfortable and works as well as any wireless or, dare we say, wired mouse we've used recently. This mouse is designed for a palm grip, but people with smaller hands might have some trouble reaching the sniper button.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
Logitech's G502 Lightspeed offers a cord-free controller without compromise. At $149.99, the mouse asks a lot from your wallet, but gives back just as much. The mouse works in wired mode while charging, so there's no need to worry about having to swap it out.

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a wireless gaming mouse that feels very well-built and comfortable. 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. 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. The Logitech is a wider mouse with an ergonomic shape and a thumb rest.

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Logitech G502 Lightspeed is a large, ergonomic mouse with a curved thumb rest and textured grips. On the mouse's topside, you'll find a whopping 10 buttons. The G502's design still holds up extremely well, but for the same price, Logitech's other high-end wireless mice may feel a bit better to hold.

The Logitech G502 Lightspeed takes one of the company's most loved gaming mice and makes it lighter, faster and wireless. The $149.99 (£129.99) mouse is specced to the gills, with support for the Powerplay charging mouse pad and even a bit of RGB lighting. The HERO 16K sensor, 100 - 16,000 DPI sensitivity options and 1,000 Hz polling rates provide plenty of options for gamers.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Logitech G502 is the latest and most profound update to the much-loved G502 gaming mouse. Being wireless means that there's a lot more freedom attached (or rather, not attached) to the G502. It works on pretty much any surface, from glass to wood to a typical mouse mat, which is a bonus, given some mice refuse to work on glass whatsoever. Its battery life is highly commendable, offering a stellar 60 hours without any lighting, or 48 hours with it on full blast.
