The Best Logitech Mouse

Logitech is the most used gaming mouse brand in the professional gaming scene, and with around 50% of all of our analyzed players using a mouse made by the Swiss brand (a truly staggering number) the question rises: which mouse is the best Logitech mouse? We’ve gone over all of the available options and in this article we’ll present you with the best choices, as well as give you some details on how and why a certain Logitech mouse might suit you.

Logitech Loyalty


Logitech has been a massive player in the world of gaming mice since the brand first started producing products aimed at the gaming market, but the numbers that we’re seeing today are absolutely bonkers. As we mentioned, around 50% of all of our analyzed professionals are using a Logitech mouse at the time of writing this article, which is an almost unbelievable number. The vast majority of those gamers are on the Superlight, but mice such as the G703 also still see a lot of usage despite being -at least in mouse terms- an ancient product.

Of course, that raises the question: why are so many pros using this particular brand? If you’re thinking ‘sponsorships’ you’re partially correct. The reality is that the vast majority of professional gamers can choose their own mouse these days, and while companies will obviously try to convince popular players to use their gear, it’s mostly down to personal preference since a mouse is such an important part of a player’s performance. If you take a look at our CS:GO Pro Settings and Gear List, you’ll see a ton of players that aren’t sponsored by Logitech using their products, for example. Of course were not denying that sponsorship plays a part, but it’s not the full reason.

We believe that there are multiple reasons for these massive numbers: there’s the fact that Logitech was the first brand to release truly flawless (rechargeable) wireless gaming mice, for example. Pros usually don’t like to switch gear too often unless there’s a massive technological improvement (such as going wireless) so once they find a shape that works for them they tend to stick with it. Then there’s also just simple word of mouth and the fact that Logitech is a massive brand that has their products in stock in basically every corner of the world. This is a big advantage if you’re professional gamer: if you’re at a tournament and your niche/boutique mouse breaks down you won’t be able to source a replacement, and your performance might suffer for it.

Of course we’re just theorizing here: we can’t look into the minds of pro players, but it’s always interesting to think about.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight – Best Logitech Mouse for Competitive Gaming


The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is without a doubt the best Logitech mouse for gaming right now. It’s the most popular gaming mouse across all of our analyzed games with over a quarter of analyzed pros using it as their main mouse, and that makes sense: it’s a great lightweight mouse that just does everything right.

The Superlight is a little bit older at this point in time, and it shows its age in certain aspects. Its Micro USB charging port wouldn’t fly if it was released in 2023, for example. Other brands have also gone with optical mouse switches in order to prevent any risk of accidental double clicks developing after long usage, to name something else.

Even with those factors accounted for, the Superlight is still a great option to pick up. It’s tried and tested and has been for years now, winning many tournaments in the hands of some of the gaming world’s most prolific and talented players. We always encourage people to do their own research and find what works for them, but this many pro gamers simply can’t be wrong: the Superlight is a fantastic gaming mouse.

The safe shape will suit pretty much every hand and grip style, and while it’s true that it’s a bit of ‘Jack of all trades’ in the sense that there are better specialized shapes out there, it’s also true that this neutral shape with its centralized hump is one of the big reasons why it’s used by so many professionals. The shape just works. If you just want to get the best Logitech mouse and you’re a bit unsure as to what your preferred grip style is, just go ahead and get this one. It’s extremely likely that you’ll be able to find a grip style that fits.

Logitech G305


Wireless gaming mice from the big brands can get pretty expensive due to the cutting edge technology behind those products, but the G305 is an exception to that. It does have cutting edge technology under the hood (at least when it released; these days some aspects of the mouse could be considered oudated) but it’s one of the most commonly recommended budget options because of its flawless wireless connection and lag-free gaming experience.

It was released at the very start of the wireless era, and the lightweight revolution also hadn’t happened at that point, so the G305 weighs in at a hefty 96 grams. That’s in part due to the fact that it’s powered by an AA battery, but that does mean that it has an insane battery life of around 250 ingame hours, so it all depends on where your preferences lie.

The small shell is almost completely devoid of any curvature, so it’s safe to say that this shape won’t work for everyone, but if you can work with the shape there’s no reason to not consider this mouse if you’re on a budget.

❝The G305, if you like (or don’t mind) the shape, is an absolute beast of a mouse, and it should definitely be considered if you’re in the market for a new piece of kit. Playing wireless is an amazing feeling and Logitech’s wireless functionality works as advertised.❞

Logitech G303 Shroud Edition


If you’re a little bit into gaming you’ll no doubt know who Shroud is. The former CS:GO pro player turned streamer is one of the most popular FPS streamers on the planet, and prior to the release of this G303 mouse, he was known for his affinity with the Logitech G303. A mouse that was, by the standards of that time, very outdated. This love for that shape, along with the clout that someone like Shroud has, helped create the G303 Shroud Edition. A modern version of that beloved cult classic.

Do note that the G303 Shroud Edition is a little larger than the old G303, so if you’re someone who has fond memories of that old mouse you will want to prepare yourself for the fact that this updated version is quite a bit larger.

What you get with the G303 Shroud Edition is a mouse that’s basically tailor-made for claw grippers. The shape is very unique, and there’s not a lot of ways that you can grip this mouse, so if you’re not a claw gripper or your hands are on the smaller side, this is a no-go.

Under the hood you get the usual Logitech magic: the flawless HERO sensor and LIGHTSPEED wireless technology makes for a completely lag-free wireless experience, and Logitech’s wireless implementation is still one of the best on the market.

If you’re looking for a unique and specialized claw grip shape, this is the one to look out for.

❝Aside from its rather unsafe shape, the Logitech G303 Shroud Edition is, as we’ve come to expect from Logitech, a fantastic gaming mouse. It has satisfying buttons, a nice (though rather tactile and on the louder side) scroll wheel, good stock feet, a flawless sensor and wireless connection, and it seems to be built well. All elements are here to make this a fantastic gaming mouse, but do make sure that your hands will agree with this shape before committing to it.❞

  • Great battery life
  • Specialized shape makes it ideal for claw grippers…

Cons

  • … but the specialized shape makes it unsuitable for any other grip type
  • Omron switches might be considered outdated by some

Logitech G703


The Logitech G703 is based on the G403, which was one of the first mice to release with a truly flawless mouse sensor way back in 2016. The shape of that mouse has always been somewhat polarizing due to the very outspoken hump towards the back. This makes the mouse feel a lot different from your ‘typical ergonomic gaming mouse’ such as the ZOWIE EC and its many clones. The shape is definitely a bit ‘love it or hate it,’ but as evidenced by pro usage numbers as well as discussion on social media there are also plenty of lovers.

The G703 is an oldtimer in the mouse world, but Logitech’s wireless technology was so good when this mouse released that it’s still a viable option today. The sensor performance and click latency are all top tier, even in 2023. The mouse shows its age mostly in the weight and with the mouse feet. You can swap those feet out, but there’s not a whole lot that you can do about the weight, which has led many fans to ask Logitech for a ‘Superlight refresh’ of this mouse. It would certainly be interesting to see if you ask us, but for now this will definitely still do if you prefer a heavier mouse or you don’t mind the weight.

❝If you can (quite literally) get over the rather awkward hump this is gonna be a great mouse for just about anyone. The G703 is a top tier wireless mouse, featuring a flawless sensor, perfect wireless connection, and some of the best buttons in the business.❞

Logitech G502 X


If you go onto any ‘more casual’ gear website (we really don’t mean this as an insult: not everyone needs to be very deep into gear and competitive gaming) you will see the Logitech G502 being recommended quite often as the best gaming mouse, and while it is certainly a very capable gaming mouse (it has a flawless sensor and its performance is up to par with what we expect from Logitech’s gaming mice) we wouldn’t recommend it for truly competitive shooter players thanks to its bulky design and weight.

It is a perfect mouse for people who only play casually, and/or for people who don’t really play shooter games, though. Thanks to its vast amount of extra knobs and buttons there is a ton of functionality here, and these extra buttons mean that it can also be used as a productivity/work mouse. If you are someone who only plays a game or two every week just for fun and you’re mostly focused on having a comfortable mouse that has a ton of bells and whistles it’s hard to look past the G502 X as an ideal middle ground between a gaming mouse and a work mouse.

The weight of this new G502 X version has been decreased to 89 grams, which is respectable for a mouse with this many buttons and extra functionality. If you’re looking for a super light mouse then this isn’t it, but the new G502 mice are far from the heavy bricks that they used to be.

Logitech G502 X

The G502 X is part of a legendary family of mice; the G502 line. This line of mice is aimed more towards casual gamers who want a ‘do it all’ type of mouse. Thanks to the myriad of extra buttons you’re getting a ton of extra functionality, and the thumb rest can greatly enhance the comfort of this mouse if that’s the sort of thing you’re after.

Pros

  • Tons of buttons
  • Comfortable, ‘productivity-style’ mouse design
  • Good build quality
  • Flawless wireless performance

Cons

  • Very bulky and unwieldy, making it less suited for fast-paced games
  • A bit heavy for today’s standards

The Best Logitech Mouse – Conclusion


Despite the fact that the Logitech G Pro X Superlight reigns supreme, there are a ton of other Logitech mice to consider if you’re shopping for a new mouse. Some of the brand’s offerings can be considered outdated by today’s standards on the outside, but on the inside all of the products in this list are flawless gaming mice in their own right. Which one you pick will come down to your personal preferences, as there is a rather wide variety of shapes and sizes to choose from if you don’t mind purchasing slightly older models.

With the G Pro X Superlight being over 2 years old at this point in time, we’re very excited to see what the future has in store for Logitech’s gaming mice. Will we see an updated Superlight this year? Will the G703 get the Superlight treatment? There’s no way to know for sure, but it’s always fun to think about.
