    Best $15 mouse around.

    For $15 this is a nice feeling mouse with plenty of DPI. It is light but sturdy, and the LED color is nice and bright.

    I have had Razer mice, etc. If you don't need programmable buttons this will suit you just fine.

    It does what it says...

    It does what it says it does. Chroma works well with other Razer products I own. The. Synapse app recognized device right away. Def helps keep mouse cord away when gaming.

    Was hesitant, but I love it!

    Guys, I was hesitant. I mean look how ugly some of those pics are! But wow...this is my new favorite thing on my desk. The way the arm flexes is so cool, it feels like I am using a wireless mouse. It lights up, it syncs, it's so awesome to have something like this, and it works! Great job, Razer!

    Well built, small and solid, great RGB

    A must have for anyone that loves Razer Chroma. I didn't think I could enjoy my Viper 8k mouse more than I already did but using this bungee proved me wrong. You can get the same bungee without the RGB for half the price but it's a wasted opportunity. The bungee is small and solid with bright RGB. Certainly an enhancement for those who prefer wired mice.

    Bungee

    I found this to be solidly-built peripheral. The base is heavy and non-slip, and the 'arm' is a lot more flexible than you'd expect. It certainly serves its purpose of maintaining a degree of slack on your mouse wire. Negatives are that... - it is expensive for what it is (though that's fairly typical of Razer products) - I'd have liked the Razer logo on the top of the peripheral to light-up (it doesn't)

    My mouse actually goes where I want it to

    I hate how often my mouse cable gets in a poor position as I need to make a quick movement. This has been one of the best PC purchases I have made. The Rgb is just a plus.

    "Fire" button added extra button function

    Each button on Red Dragon M612 Predator mouse can be user configured for user selected custom function.

    This includes "Fire" button at left from left click can also be reconfigured for custom function.

    While M612 Predator has lower dpi than M711 Cobra, M612 Centrophorus2 lower DPI is almost as accurate as M711 Cobra.

    *RedDragon M612 Predator, M711 Cobra and Centrophorus2-M601 mice all require its own driver. If M612, 711 and M601 drivers are installed on same Windows PC, each Dragon Dragon mouse will show its own icon at Windows taskbar. M612 Predator driver is compatible with M11 Cobra. M612 Centrophorus2 mouse requires its own driver and cannot use M612 or M711 mouse driver.

    Bargain Killer Looking Mouse

    Easy to use, plug & play ability.

    Just had to make minor speed adjustments in the Mouse settings on my Mac. Only complaint is the cord snags sometimes but that’s the pro of a wireless mouse over wired. No true complaints though for the $17.99 price.

    Looks amazing with the alternating colors.

    The Best Mouse On The Market.

    You can find me full review of this product here: (https://youtu.be/d1FULCx34lY)

    DIFFERENCES BETWEEN IT AND THE ORIGINAL G PRO WIRELESS:

    I’ll be referring to the G Pro X Superlight as the Superlight for simplicity. It is now less than 63 grams which makes it the lightest WIRELESS gaming mouse on the market. It also comes in lighter than most WIRED gaming mice. Many users are actually finding their mouse weighs less than 63 grams with some going into the upper 50’s. Mine was 59 grams. Crazy talk I tell you. They accomplished this by removing the right-side buttons, the DPI button on the bottom of the mouse, and the RGB which was replaced by a grey G Logo. If you squint real hard you can pretend it’s a grey light. There is a single LED indicator that turns on when you power the mouse on, then shows you what DPI you are on, and last when your battery is low it will blink. Along with a bunch of other stuff that you can’t see going on under the hood.

    The side clicks feel a bit different as well. As they removed the modularity of it. Overall, button placement is ideal and works for a plethora of different grips. They stick out well, are easy to find, require light amount of actuation, with moderate to long travel making them feel mushy, with a solid click at the end.

    The Superlight’s scroll wheel has now stepped into a new dimension and is two toned. Groundbreaking I know. But please hold your applause. Otherwise, it appears to be the nearly the same and continues to be one of my favorite scroll wheels of all time. I have noticed that my Superlight feels a lot tighter. Middle mouse button also requires a lot less force to actuate now with a defined click that is about a quarter as loud. Again, this could be due to variance. The scroll wheel has very definitive steps, is tight, and requires moderate pressure to actuate with a very crisp click. It’s brilliant I tell you. Brilliant!

    Moving onto the big-ticket item outside of the weight, the clicks themselves. One of my biggest concerns, along with many others was if the Superlight would also suffer from double clicking. I’ve heard through the grapevine that they are now using 20 million Omron switches instead of their previous 50 million Omron’s. They have also made some other changes under the hood for the Superlight to cut weight which should hopefully also help with this. Why Logitech hasn’t made a big deal about being transparent with improving the clicks I don’t know. Which makes me think they haven’t done anything as why stay quiet about it?

    I personally notice a huge difference with these new clicks. The Superlight clicks are now about twice as loud and have stronger spring back force which leads to an incredibly crisp click. Seriously they feel great. However, it appears that the very light actuation force with very low pre-travel of the G Pro has now turned into slightly heaver actuation force with slightly longer pre-travel followed by the same long post-travel. They still use the mechanical tensioning system so each click is very consistent as is left/right click variance. I continue to love these clicks and they are still one of my favorites.

    They have finally upgraded their PTFE feet to no additive PTFE and they are substantially larger. The puck also comes with more PTFE if you want to get really crazy. Last, even though they removed the powerplay magnets it still supports it. I much prefer these as they glide wonderfully.

    The weight of the Superlight is now balanced.

    I think they added a new coating. As the Superlight feels a lot less slippery in my hand along with having more of a matte finish that feels slightly rubbery.

    It still has the best on/off switch of any wireless gaming mouse I’ve tried. Making it incredibly easy to toggle. It shows blue when on and red when off.

    It only supports 1 on-board profile. It also comes with grip tape. For those of you who just can’t seem to hold onto your mouse. It’s okay you can just admit that your aim leaves a lot to be desired over issues with your mouse.;)

    It continues to use a Micro USB. As it is lighter and takes up less room. Which is a bummer as I would have preferred to see USB C. It still comes with a dongle and a plastic cord. Which is also disappointing in the era of paracords. Thankfully the rubber cord is very malleable but still no where near as premium as what other mice now offer. Thankfully, battery life on this guy is tremendous at 70 hours. Which seems pretty darn accurate and may even be a bit low as I’ve been using it for four days now and I’m only at 91 percent. So, if every once in a while you remember to plug in your mouse to charge you shouldn’t have to worry about it.

    SUMMARY OF IMPROVEMENTS/DIFFERENCES:

    The Superlight is now <63 grams from 80 grams. Mine is 60 grams. The puck now weighs 1 gram compared to 2 grams. The weight is now balanced instead of back heavy. The side clicks have been removed from the right side and are no longer modular. Which makes them feel a bit mushier as there is more give but still provide a crisp click. Scroll wheel is two toned, tighter with more defined steps, requires less actuation force, and is less loud. Clicks are now 50 mil Omron from 20 Mil, are twice as loud, feel crisper due to increased spring back force, require slightly more actuation force with slightly more pre-travel with the same post travel. It has upgraded PTFE feet that also take up more surface area. Battery life has improved at a minimum of 60 hours to 70 hours. It uses the same HERO sensor. It has a new coating that is gripper, and it comes with grip tape. It only supports 1 on-board profile from 5. There is no RGB. It still uses Micro USB and comes with an old-school cable. Overall, if you enjoy the G Pro Wireless this would be a worthy upgrade in my opinion as my G Pro Wireless is now dead to me. You heathen get out of my sight. Take your RGB lighting and modularity and find a new home. Just kidding please don’t make me sleep on the couch.

    CONCLUSION:

    No surprise here. This is a fantastic mouse. The small improvements they have made are very welcome to me. And if you are trying to get the most out of your mouse this is one you should consider. As I found it to be an upgrade over my previous mice.

    *Neutral:

    -Very expensive for a mouse.

    -Have to open the G Hub app to change the DPI setting.

    _____

    *Cons:

    -None

    Although I'm not a pro gamer but a moderate PC gamer, I still appreciate the Logitech G Pro X Superlight very much. Just like its name says, the mouse is super, super light and it felt like an empty and hollowed-out dummy unit for customer display when I first picked it up. It's the lightest mouse I've ever laid my hands on and it took me a little while to get used to its surreal lightness. That's not to say, however, that the mouse feels cheap. Due to Logitech's excellent design, the mouse cups underneath my hand like a second skin, feeling very ergonomic and comfortable.

    For the type of games I play, which are mostly FPS and third-person action RPGs, the number of buttons provided proved adequate and satisfactory. MMO players, on the other hand, might wish for more. The left and right-click buttons, as well as the two left-side buttons all worked just fine. The scroll wheel, which has good resistance, performed well, with no over-, under- or laggy scrolling. It's tuned perfectly out-of-the-box and I have no complaints.

    I'm already familiar with Logitech's G Hub software and I'm glad the company is keeping the design and navigation within it simple and elegant. There aren't many customization options for the G Pro X Superlight because it comes with a minimal number of buttons (five) and no LED light colors to change, which is fine by me. But it's in here that you can toggle among the various DPI settings. Thanks to the awesome HERO sensor, the dpi can be set as high as 25K! My reflexes aren't that good so I usually have it set way lower when playing slower-paced third-party action RPGs and I crank it up a bit for FPS games like Cyperpunk 2077. You'll have to play around with the dpi slider until you find the setting that is most comfortable and appropriate for your usage scenario.

    It's only when I'm not gaming and using the mouse for web browsing and productivity tasks that I wish there was at least one or two more programmable buttons - a dpi-changing button and a general-purpose button underneath the scroll wheel. On my other computer mice with more buttons, I usually set the button underneath the scroll wheel to launch a keyboard shortcut, such as CTRL + W (close tab). If I had a dedicated dpi-changing button, then I could be saving some time by not having to launch G Hub and setting a different dpi value. But all of this is really nitpicking and missing the point since the G Pro X Superlight is specifically tailored for hardcore and pro-level gamers.

    All in all, I'm more than pleased with the Superlight. It is feather-light, very ergonomic and perfectly suited for hours-long gaming sessions, ultra-precise and accurate, and has really long battery life. The price tag is quite high but I can definitely see this mouse being worth it for both serious and casual gamers alike. It's an absolute 5-star win!

    Logitech G PRO X Superlight - Review

    Logitech G PRO X Superlight - Mouse Review.

    After some time out of stock, I finally got my hands on the G PRO Superlight. I've used it for 10 days now, and I wanted to write a review about it.

    I've been a heavy user of the Logitech G703, but I wanted a lighter, ambidextrous mouse. The shape of the G703 became a little bulky for me, as I moved away from the palmgrip, and aimed for more of a fingertip/claw grip.

    These are my thoughts on the different aspects of the mouse:

    Shape: This is the first ambidextrous mouse I've owned, and I love the shape! Although my first reaction to the shape was that it feels slim, because the sides of the mouse are very steep. My hands cramped a little after heavy use, as it takes some time to adjust.

    Weight: The weight is very well balanced, and the superlight weight really makes it easy to flick and move the mouse around fast. 60g really feels like a sweetspot.

    Glide: At first, the glide doesn't feel super smooth, but after about 4 hours of breaking them down, it's actually very impressive! Something to note is that the stock skates doesn't have rounded edges.

    Coating: The coating has a matte and smooth feel, but is a little slippery if your hands are very dry. After some minutes of use, it sticks well to the hand. The printed silver logo could have been better in my opinion. The "silver" colour looks cheap. I think the look of the mouse would've been even better if the logo was the same colour as the mouse, only with a glossy finish - would've been very minimalistic and clean.

    M1 & M2: The main clicks are very good. They're snappy, crisp and not too light to the touch. They have a little bit of pre and post travel, but it's not noticable during use. I've read complaints regarding sidewobble, and while it is true that the buttons have some slight sideplay when you really force it to show, I have never felt any of this during gameplay or regular use. I'm very satisfied with the clicks.

    Sidebuttons: The sidebuttons are probably the weakest point of the superlight. They are very soft, with alot of pre and post travel. The clicks don't give you enough feedback to the touch, which can cause confusion if you clicked or not (this applies when you have a headset on and can't hear the click itself). The sidebuttons on the Superlight can compare to the DPI button on the G703.

    Scrollwheel: The scrollwheel is good, though it's on the lighter side, with a light feedback. If you're looking for a firm scrollwheel with very obvious steps, this may not be it.

    Sensor: Solid perfomance, not had any issues.

    Buildquality: The build quality is superb, even for a 60g mouse! It's very solid, and has very little give to it when squeezing the sides. There is no noises when shaking or squeezing the mouse. Keep in mind as the mouse is only 60 grams, it will naturally "feel" cheaper, than a heavier mouse (as cheap things often are related with light weight, and vice versa).

    Battery: Superb batterylife! I've used it alot for 10 days, and it's at 60%.

    Price: 150$ is alot for a mouse, regardless of how good it is (this mouse costs 188$ in Norway). There is alot of good choices for a lot less. Though, if you really enjoy the G PRO ambidextrous shape, and want a lightweight mouse with great main clicks, good buildquality, probably the best sensor, and great batterylife, you will be satisfied with the Superlight.

    THE Gaming Mouse for the 'super light' crowd

    The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT nails it. I've never been a fan of extremely light gaming mice, but this one thoroughly changed my mind. What this mouse offers is everything essential. Ultra light weight, ultra smooth light-speed wireless and wired performance, no-compromise - gigantic feet/pads and solid build quality.

    Upon my unboxing, I was immediately taken by the shape & weight. There are going to be pundits who want more buttons, say for DPI switching and assignable actions, or others wanting more RGB bling ... or even others wanting better grip. I can see all those aspects being justifiable wants but would simply say, see other Logitech products for all of those things. The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is laser focused on performance, performance & performance.

    Straight away, I was impressed with the scroll wheel. The detent feedback is right where I like it and wish all Logi mice had this tactile response. This has to be the best scroll wheel design they've ever put out. Left & right button response is also short & quick. Never experienced any double clicks or ghosting.

    Another one of my favorite aspects of the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is the massive and well positioned feet/pads. This is another one of those characteristics I wish was present on more Logitech mice. My previous go-to mouse is the Logi 903. And although I prefer the overall weight and features of the 903, the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT's glide on a hard surface is far superior. It reminds me a lot of D-Adder or Mamba (Elites) glide.

    The smooth, non-braided USB cable is also a big step up from the other Logi cable offerings. Big win!

    Since the features are focused, the options available in the Logitech G Hub software are minimal but everything essential is there and easy to customize.

    In terms of play-ability, I spent quite a few hours on MW2 Remastered, Quake Champions ... and even Quake II RTX... if you can believe that.

    The precision during intense battles and more controlled sniping is top shelf with the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. I never felt hindered by either the wireless connection or being tethered by the smooth, USB cable. Firing off shots and controlling movement was intuitive and satisfying. I own the Powerplay charging pad and honestly, I prefer a touch more weight to my mouse - so it was easy to obtain that optimal feel by simply installing the charging disc from the Powerplay system. Adding that puck adds just the right about of additional weight to the bottom of the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. I highly recommend this upgrade.

    Can't comment on battery life due to time constraints but the charging time is phenomenally fast... and if the approx. 70 hours of operational time is accurate, that's a big bonus in my mind.

    Pros:

    Only the essentials - no bling or extra buttons

    Perfect balance

    Super light without that honeycombed, open aperture design

    Outstanding glide on hard surfaces with massive feet/pads

    Slim and smooth jacketed USB cable

    Cons:

    Perhaps two additional buttons dedicated to quick, up & down DPI switching would be nice ... but I can't truly call that a Con. Most 'serious business' gamer types are set it & forget it folks. So I get it.

    And I can say I never felt the need for a dedicated sniper button.

    I'm most comfortable claw-gripping on the sides with my button fingers slightly raised, so for my medium sized hands this mouse has that perfect geometry for confident control in 1st person shooters . No significant learning curve experienced; everything felt totally natural from the get-go. YMMV

    Those looking for the ultimate in a super light gaming mouse that is built around all the critical essentials... this is it!

    Basically Perfect Out Of The Box

    Would be basically perfect if it was cheaper, cant really fault the Pro X for anything. Build quality is very good, feels solid despite weighing nothing. Switches feel great, crisp with very little post travel. Skates are great, very fast, just need to break them in. Safe shape for all grip styles, even though its small I palm it without issue. Easy recommend to anyone looking for a wireless ultralight mouse. This mouse was clearly designed for esports games played on low sens, if you are gonna use it on anything higher than 1600dpi and or use a high in game sens, you aren't using it to its full potential. You don't need an ultralight mouse if you only need to move an inch for a 360.

    Shape 8/10

    Weight 10/10

    Sensor 10/10

    Switches and Scroll Wheel 10/10

    Skates 9/10

    Best In Class Performance & Lightweight Design

    ---- Summary ----

    Verdict:

    Logitech proves that excellent performance and battery life can be housed in a sleek, lightweight design. If you’re looking for a premium gaming mouse with these aspects plus unwavering wireless connectivity and consistency, consider the Logitech G Pro X Superlight.

    Pros:

    - Very lightweight

    - Sturdy build quality

    - Comfortable to hold

    - Long battery life

    - Responsive and precise

    - Reliable wireless connectivity

    - Smooth glide

    - Simple setup

    Cons:

    - Not a truly ambidextrous design

    ---- Review ----

    Setup:

    Setup is as easy as one-two-three. Really, there are just three steps in the manual, which are to plug the charging cable, power on the mouse, and install Logitech G Hub on your computer. I appreciated the very quick and issue-free setup.

    Design:

    When I took the G Pro X Superlight out of the box, I couldn’t believe how lightweight it was. I immediately thought there must be batteries I needed to put in, but realized the rechargeable battery is already built-in. The word “superlight” in the name is no joke. Compared to the standard G Pro mouse, what you’re giving up for this astoundingly lightweight design is RGB lighting and buttons on the right side of the mouse. Although the shape is ambidextrous, the lack of buttons on the right side might make this mouse less attractive to those who are left-handed. Although I like RGB lighting, I think the substantial weight reduction is a worthy tradeoff for RGB, but that’s up to you to decide. Despite its lightweight, the structural integrity of the mouse isn’t compromised. There’s no flexing in the plastic outer shell, no rattling, and it feels sturdy, so I don’t doubt that it’ll withstand extended use. The Superlight has a sleek, no-frills design that still manages to look and feel like a premium mouse. Subtle touches like the white on the scroll wheel and the matte finish contribute to its tasteful look. Comfort is very important to me, and the Superlight delivers in that regard too. Its lightweight and large PTFE feet deliver a smooth and wrist fatigue-free experience, while the shape delivers comfort, even during long gaming or working sessions.

    Features:

    Settings are managed in the Logitech G Hub software (available for Windows or Mac OS). You can change DPI (the speed of your mouse on the screen), reassign buttons, and set up profiles for games/apps. It’s all pretty straightforward and convenient to have in one place. Included in the box are a few optional components like the rubberized skins for increased grip, a PTFE puck that can be swapped with the stock puck for increased PTFE feet surface area and less resistance, as well as a receiver extension adapter. These are in addition to the required components like the charging cable and wireless receiver. Though I currently don’t own the Logitech PowerPlay mat, it’s nice to know that can be used with the Superlight mouse.

    Performance:

    Whether I’m gaming or working, the responsiveness and precision of the G Pro X Superlight exceed my expectations, but where it shines is gaming. I’m a fan of first-person shooter games like Call of Duty, and the Superlight provides me with a precise aiming and shooting experience. Additionally, the wireless connection has been flawless. If I play badly, there’s no way I can blame it on this mouse. Battery life has exceeded my expectations as well. For such a lightweight mouse, I assumed that there’d be a small battery that wouldn’t last more than about 50 hours, but no, it provides an impressive 70 hours of battery life (in constant motion). Logitech proves that a lightweight design doesn’t have to compromise critical aspects like performance and battery life.

    Great mouse, but a little pricey.

    Used a Model O Wired for the past almost 3 or 2 years and used a ziptie bungie. Moved to California almost 7 months ago and my mouse started disconnecting from my PC when I was playing games. Got this mouse hoping it would last a long time and so far, it’s feeing really good. Super light, never runs out of batter when I use it, and it feels more responsive than my old Model O Wired.

    Worthwhile upgrade from the original GPRO Wireless

    Coming from the G Pro Wireless(GPW), I didn't think the weight difference would be that substantial to justify it. I feel I was wrong. Tracking just feels easier with this compared to the original GPW. Moving it around in general feels easier, and I'm happy to have made the upgrade. I loved the GPW and the GWP Superlight just seems to have improved on what was in my opinion the best mouse on the market.

    It's back, still in black.

    This is a very nice optical mouse. I've purchased the original DeathAdder (which I actually wore out... ahh the WoW days), the RGB DeathAdder Elite, and this is my first V2. There aren't a ton of differences, physically speaking, but they did change the buttons up a little (still similar, just different shape to them). The mouse is actually lighter, and they changed the braiding on the cable. It's "looser" now, but having dealt with it for a month at this point I can say I don't mind it at all and basically don't even notice anymore. It also has slightly different pads on the bottom that are white instead of the previous black.

    It includes a profile button on the bottom and on-board memory (do you need that? I don't... but it's cool to have if I was big on dialing in my "perfect settings" then took my mouse somewhere else... without my computer... and wanted to game? weird.). Plus it's sensor is great. They've all been really great. Do I notice a major improvement or something? No. The other DeathAdder's were also great, this one did not break that trend.

    It fits better in slightly larger hands than some other mice I've owned, and I prefer it over those other mice. Some of these that I've used (or still use when I must) include "standard" generic mice you get included with new PC's (Dell in particular), a Razer Naga, and even the wireless Logitech G403 (which is a nice wireless gaming mouse, but much heavier and not as comfortable).

    All in, this is, so far, my favorite mouse to use. If it broke right now, I'd hop my quarantined self in my car and curb-side pick up another of these. Let's just hope I remember pants. What day is it again? lol

    Very precise mouse, fits perfectly in my hand, and the different settings for the lighting make it very eye-catching. I've combined it with a Razer keyboard and any and all lighting settings can be set across both devices and it looks wonderful.

    Razer Perfection - 14 years in the making.

    The Razer DeathAdder has been around since 2006, and I remember adopting this mouse as my main driver for desktop computing and usage. I have had about 4 versions of this mouse and this one is by far the most refined and best feeling to use. It is lighter than any previous version and it just feels like quality. This combination makes it weird to use for those used to heavier mice due to the fact that it feels durable and so light.

    It is snappy and the software does a decent job and customizing it. The grips on the side definitely feel firm and don't feel like they're going to come lose or fall off. I also welcome the matte finish on the mouse as opposed to a glossy texture. I also welcome the recessed top buttons that switch between precision speeds so I don't accidentally click them with normal use.

    With all those positives, the only negative I can think of is the fact that it is still a wired mouse. I know there is a wireless option for this mouse, but it's double the price. While I love quality, I'm also cheap, so I'll keep using the wired version.

    I've used this mouse for the past 13-14 years and I have always, and still love it. Get it already!

    The Best Mouse On The Market.

    You can find me full review of this product here: (https://youtu.be/d1FULCx34lY)

    DIFFERENCES BETWEEN IT AND THE ORIGINAL G PRO WIRELESS:

    I’ll be referring to the G Pro X Superlight as the Superlight for simplicity. It is now less than 63 grams which makes it the lightest WIRELESS gaming mouse on the market. It also comes in lighter than most WIRED gaming mice. Many users are actually finding their mouse weighs less than 63 grams with some going into the upper 50’s. Mine was 59 grams. Crazy talk I tell you. They accomplished this by removing the right-side buttons, the DPI button on the bottom of the mouse, and the RGB which was replaced by a grey G Logo. If you squint real hard you can pretend it’s a grey light. There is a single LED indicator that turns on when you power the mouse on, then shows you what DPI you are on, and last when your battery is low it will blink. Along with a bunch of other stuff that you can’t see going on under the hood.

    The side clicks feel a bit different as well. As they removed the modularity of it. Overall, button placement is ideal and works for a plethora of different grips. They stick out well, are easy to find, require light amount of actuation, with moderate to long travel making them feel mushy, with a solid click at the end.

    The Superlight’s scroll wheel has now stepped into a new dimension and is two toned. Groundbreaking I know. But please hold your applause. Otherwise, it appears to be the nearly the same and continues to be one of my favorite scroll wheels of all time. I have noticed that my Superlight feels a lot tighter. Middle mouse button also requires a lot less force to actuate now with a defined click that is about a quarter as loud. Again, this could be due to variance. The scroll wheel has very definitive steps, is tight, and requires moderate pressure to actuate with a very crisp click. It’s brilliant I tell you. Brilliant!

    Moving onto the big-ticket item outside of the weight, the clicks themselves. One of my biggest concerns, along with many others was if the Superlight would also suffer from double clicking. I’ve heard through the grapevine that they are now using 20 million Omron switches instead of their previous 50 million Omron’s. They have also made some other changes under the hood for the Superlight to cut weight which should hopefully also help with this. Why Logitech hasn’t made a big deal about being transparent with improving the clicks I don’t know. Which makes me think they haven’t done anything as why stay quiet about it?

    I personally notice a huge difference with these new clicks. The Superlight clicks are now about twice as loud and have stronger spring back force which leads to an incredibly crisp click. Seriously they feel great. However, it appears that the very light actuation force with very low pre-travel of the G Pro has now turned into slightly heaver actuation force with slightly longer pre-travel followed by the same long post-travel. They still use the mechanical tensioning system so each click is very consistent as is left/right click variance. I continue to love these clicks and they are still one of my favorites.

    They have finally upgraded their PTFE feet to no additive PTFE and they are substantially larger. The puck also comes with more PTFE if you want to get really crazy. Last, even though they removed the powerplay magnets it still supports it. I much prefer these as they glide wonderfully.

    The weight of the Superlight is now balanced.

    I think they added a new coating. As the Superlight feels a lot less slippery in my hand along with having more of a matte finish that feels slightly rubbery.

    It still has the best on/off switch of any wireless gaming mouse I’ve tried. Making it incredibly easy to toggle. It shows blue when on and red when off.

    It only supports 1 on-board profile. It also comes with grip tape. For those of you who just can’t seem to hold onto your mouse. It’s okay you can just admit that your aim leaves a lot to be desired over issues with your mouse.;)

    It continues to use a Micro USB. As it is lighter and takes up less room. Which is a bummer as I would have preferred to see USB C. It still comes with a dongle and a plastic cord. Which is also disappointing in the era of paracords. Thankfully the rubber cord is very malleable but still no where near as premium as what other mice now offer. Thankfully, battery life on this guy is tremendous at 70 hours. Which seems pretty darn accurate and may even be a bit low as I’ve been using it for four days now and I’m only at 91 percent. So, if every once in a while you remember to plug in your mouse to charge you shouldn’t have to worry about it.

    SUMMARY OF IMPROVEMENTS/DIFFERENCES:

    The Superlight is now <63 grams from 80 grams. Mine is 60 grams. The puck now weighs 1 gram compared to 2 grams. The weight is now balanced instead of back heavy. The side clicks have been removed from the right side and are no longer modular. Which makes them feel a bit mushier as there is more give but still provide a crisp click. Scroll wheel is two toned, tighter with more defined steps, requires less actuation force, and is less loud. Clicks are now 50 mil Omron from 20 Mil, are twice as loud, feel crisper due to increased spring back force, require slightly more actuation force with slightly more pre-travel with the same post travel. It has upgraded PTFE feet that also take up more surface area. Battery life has improved at a minimum of 60 hours to 70 hours. It uses the same HERO sensor. It has a new coating that is gripper, and it comes with grip tape. It only supports 1 on-board profile from 5. There is no RGB. It still uses Micro USB and comes with an old-school cable. Overall, if you enjoy the G Pro Wireless this would be a worthy upgrade in my opinion as my G Pro Wireless is now dead to me. You heathen get out of my sight. Take your RGB lighting and modularity and find a new home. Just kidding please don’t make me sleep on the couch.

    CONCLUSION:

    No surprise here. This is a fantastic mouse. The small improvements they have made are very welcome to me. And if you are trying to get the most out of your mouse this is one you should consider. As I found it to be an upgrade over my previous mice.

    _____

    *Neutral:

    -Very expensive for a mouse.

    -Have to open the G Hub app to change the DPI setting.

    _____

    *Cons:

    -None

    Although I'm not a pro gamer but a moderate PC gamer, I still appreciate the Logitech G Pro X Superlight very much. Just like its name says, the mouse is super, super light and it felt like an empty and hollowed-out dummy unit for customer display when I first picked it up. It's the lightest mouse I've ever laid my hands on and it took me a little while to get used to its surreal lightness. That's not to say, however, that the mouse feels cheap. Due to Logitech's excellent design, the mouse cups underneath my hand like a second skin, feeling very ergonomic and comfortable.

    For the type of games I play, which are mostly FPS and third-person action RPGs, the number of buttons provided proved adequate and satisfactory. MMO players, on the other hand, might wish for more. The left and right-click buttons, as well as the two left-side buttons all worked just fine. The scroll wheel, which has good resistance, performed well, with no over-, under- or laggy scrolling. It's tuned perfectly out-of-the-box and I have no complaints.

    I'm already familiar with Logitech's G Hub software and I'm glad the company is keeping the design and navigation within it simple and elegant. There aren't many customization options for the G Pro X Superlight because it comes with a minimal number of buttons (five) and no LED light colors to change, which is fine by me. But it's in here that you can toggle among the various DPI settings. Thanks to the awesome HERO sensor, the dpi can be set as high as 25K! My reflexes aren't that good so I usually have it set way lower when playing slower-paced third-party action RPGs and I crank it up a bit for FPS games like Cyperpunk 2077. You'll have to play around with the dpi slider until you find the setting that is most comfortable and appropriate for your usage scenario.

    It's only when I'm not gaming and using the mouse for web browsing and productivity tasks that I wish there was at least one or two more programmable buttons - a dpi-changing button and a general-purpose button underneath the scroll wheel. On my other computer mice with more buttons, I usually set the button underneath the scroll wheel to launch a keyboard shortcut, such as CTRL + W (close tab). If I had a dedicated dpi-changing button, then I could be saving some time by not having to launch G Hub and setting a different dpi value. But all of this is really nitpicking and missing the point since the G Pro X Superlight is specifically tailored for hardcore and pro-level gamers.

    All in all, I'm more than pleased with the Superlight. It is feather-light, very ergonomic and perfectly suited for hours-long gaming sessions, ultra-precise and accurate, and has really long battery life. The price tag is quite high but I can definitely see this mouse being worth it for both serious and casual gamers alike. It's an absolute 5-star win!

    Logitech G PRO X Superlight - Review

    Logitech G PRO X Superlight - Mouse Review.

    After some time out of stock, I finally got my hands on the G PRO Superlight. I've used it for 10 days now, and I wanted to write a review about it.

    I've been a heavy user of the Logitech G703, but I wanted a lighter, ambidextrous mouse. The shape of the G703 became a little bulky for me, as I moved away from the palmgrip, and aimed for more of a fingertip/claw grip.

    These are my thoughts on the different aspects of the mouse:

    Shape: This is the first ambidextrous mouse I've owned, and I love the shape! Although my first reaction to the shape was that it feels slim, because the sides of the mouse are very steep. My hands cramped a little after heavy use, as it takes some time to adjust.

    Weight: The weight is very well balanced, and the superlight weight really makes it easy to flick and move the mouse around fast. 60g really feels like a sweetspot.

    Glide: At first, the glide doesn't feel super smooth, but after about 4 hours of breaking them down, it's actually very impressive! Something to note is that the stock skates doesn't have rounded edges.

    Coating: The coating has a matte and smooth feel, but is a little slippery if your hands are very dry. After some minutes of use, it sticks well to the hand. The printed silver logo could have been better in my opinion. The "silver" colour looks cheap. I think the look of the mouse would've been even better if the logo was the same colour as the mouse, only with a glossy finish - would've been very minimalistic and clean.

    M1 & M2: The main clicks are very good. They're snappy, crisp and not too light to the touch. They have a little bit of pre and post travel, but it's not noticable during use. I've read complaints regarding sidewobble, and while it is true that the buttons have some slight sideplay when you really force it to show, I have never felt any of this during gameplay or regular use. I'm very satisfied with the clicks.

    Sidebuttons: The sidebuttons are probably the weakest point of the superlight. They are very soft, with alot of pre and post travel. The clicks don't give you enough feedback to the touch, which can cause confusion if you clicked or not (this applies when you have a headset on and can't hear the click itself). The sidebuttons on the Superlight can compare to the DPI button on the G703.

    Scrollwheel: The scrollwheel is good, though it's on the lighter side, with a light feedback. If you're looking for a firm scrollwheel with very obvious steps, this may not be it.

    Sensor: Solid perfomance, not had any issues.

    Buildquality: The build quality is superb, even for a 60g mouse! It's very solid, and has very little give to it when squeezing the sides. There is no noises when shaking or squeezing the mouse. Keep in mind as the mouse is only 60 grams, it will naturally "feel" cheaper, than a heavier mouse (as cheap things often are related with light weight, and vice versa).

    Battery: Superb batterylife! I've used it alot for 10 days, and it's at 60%.

    Price: 150$ is alot for a mouse, regardless of how good it is (this mouse costs 188$ in Norway). There is alot of good choices for a lot less. Though, if you really enjoy the G PRO ambidextrous shape, and want a lightweight mouse with great main clicks, good buildquality, probably the best sensor, and great batterylife, you will be satisfied with the Superlight.

    THE Gaming Mouse for the 'super light' crowd

    The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT nails it. I've never been a fan of extremely light gaming mice, but this one thoroughly changed my mind. What this mouse offers is everything essential. Ultra light weight, ultra smooth light-speed wireless and wired performance, no-compromise - gigantic feet/pads and solid build quality.

    Upon my unboxing, I was immediately taken by the shape & weight. There are going to be pundits who want more buttons, say for DPI switching and assignable actions, or others wanting more RGB bling ... or even others wanting better grip. I can see all those aspects being justifiable wants but would simply say, see other Logitech products for all of those things. The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is laser focused on performance, performance & performance.

    Straight away, I was impressed with the scroll wheel. The detent feedback is right where I like it and wish all Logi mice had this tactile response. This has to be the best scroll wheel design they've ever put out. Left & right button response is also short & quick. Never experienced any double clicks or ghosting.

    Another one of my favorite aspects of the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is the massive and well positioned feet/pads. This is another one of those characteristics I wish was present on more Logitech mice. My previous go-to mouse is the Logi 903. And although I prefer the overall weight and features of the 903, the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT's glide on a hard surface is far superior. It reminds me a lot of D-Adder or Mamba (Elites) glide.

    The smooth, non-braided USB cable is also a big step up from the other Logi cable offerings. Big win!

    Since the features are focused, the options available in the Logitech G Hub software are minimal but everything essential is there and easy to customize.

    In terms of play-ability, I spent quite a few hours on MW2 Remastered, Quake Champions ... and even Quake II RTX... if you can believe that.

    The precision during intense battles and more controlled sniping is top shelf with the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. I never felt hindered by either the wireless connection or being tethered by the smooth, USB cable. Firing off shots and controlling movement was intuitive and satisfying. I own the Powerplay charging pad and honestly, I prefer a touch more weight to my mouse - so it was easy to obtain that optimal feel by simply installing the charging disc from the Powerplay system. Adding that puck adds just the right about of additional weight to the bottom of the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. I highly recommend this upgrade.

    Can't comment on battery life due to time constraints but the charging time is phenomenally fast... and if the approx. 70 hours of operational time is accurate, that's a big bonus in my mind.

    Pros:

    Only the essentials - no bling or extra buttons

    Perfect balance

    Super light without that honeycombed, open aperture design

    Outstanding glide on hard surfaces with massive feet/pads

    Slim and smooth jacketed USB cable

    Cons:

    Perhaps two additional buttons dedicated to quick, up & down DPI switching would be nice ... but I can't truly call that a Con. Most 'serious business' gamer types are set it & forget it folks. So I get it.

    And I can say I never felt the need for a dedicated sniper button.

    I'm most comfortable claw-gripping on the sides with my button fingers slightly raised, so for my medium sized hands this mouse has that perfect geometry for confident control in 1st person shooters . No significant learning curve experienced; everything felt totally natural from the get-go. YMMV

    Those looking for the ultimate in a super light gaming mouse that is built around all the critical essentials... this is it!

    Basically Perfect Out Of The Box

    Would be basically perfect if it was cheaper, cant really fault the Pro X for anything. Build quality is very good, feels solid despite weighing nothing. Switches feel great, crisp with very little post travel. Skates are great, very fast, just need to break them in. Safe shape for all grip styles, even though its small I palm it without issue. Easy recommend to anyone looking for a wireless ultralight mouse. This mouse was clearly designed for esports games played on low sens, if you are gonna use it on anything higher than 1600dpi and or use a high in game sens, you aren't using it to its full potential. You don't need an ultralight mouse if you only need to move an inch for a 360.

    Shape 8/10

    Weight 10/10

    Sensor 10/10

    Switches and Scroll Wheel 10/10

    Skates 9/10

    Design:

    When I took the G Pro X Superlight out of the box, I couldn’t believe how lightweight it was. I immediately thought there must be batteries I needed to put in, but realized the rechargeable battery is already built-in. The word “superlight” in the name is no joke. Compared to the standard G Pro mouse, what you’re giving up for this astoundingly lightweight design is RGB lighting and buttons on the right side of the mouse. Although the shape is ambidextrous, the lack of buttons on the right side might make this mouse less attractive to those who are left-handed. Although I like RGB lighting, I think the substantial weight reduction is a worthy tradeoff for RGB, but that’s up to you to decide. Despite its lightweight, the structural integrity of the mouse isn’t compromised. There’s no flexing in the plastic outer shell, no rattling, and it feels sturdy, so I don’t doubt that it’ll withstand extended use. The Superlight has a sleek, no-frills design that still manages to look and feel like a premium mouse. Subtle touches like the white on the scroll wheel and the matte finish contribute to its tasteful look. Comfort is very important to me, and the Superlight delivers in that regard too. Its lightweight and large PTFE feet deliver a smooth and wrist fatigue-free experience, while the shape delivers comfort, even during long gaming or working sessions.

    Features:

    Settings are managed in the Logitech G Hub software (available for Windows or Mac OS). You can change DPI (the speed of your mouse on the screen), reassign buttons, and set up profiles for games/apps. It’s all pretty straightforward and convenient to have in one place. Included in the box are a few optional components like the rubberized skins for increased grip, a PTFE puck that can be swapped with the stock puck for increased PTFE feet surface area and less resistance, as well as a receiver extension adapter. These are in addition to the required components like the charging cable and wireless receiver. Though I currently don’t own the Logitech PowerPlay mat, it’s nice to know that can be used with the Superlight mouse.

    Performance:

    Whether I’m gaming or working, the responsiveness and precision of the G Pro X Superlight exceed my expectations, but where it shines is gaming. I’m a fan of first-person shooter games like Call of Duty, and the Superlight provides me with a precise aiming and shooting experience. Additionally, the wireless connection has been flawless. If I play badly, there’s no way I can blame it on this mouse. Battery life has exceeded my expectations as well. For such a lightweight mouse, I assumed that there’d be a small battery that wouldn’t last more than about 50 hours, but no, it provides an impressive 70 hours of battery life (in constant motion). Logitech proves that a lightweight design doesn’t have to compromise critical aspects like performance and battery life.

    Great mouse, but a little pricey.

    Used a Model O Wired for the past almost 3 or 2 years and used a ziptie bungie. Moved to California almost 7 months ago and my mouse started disconnecting from my PC when I was playing games. Got this mouse hoping it would last a long time and so far, it’s feeing really good. Super light, never runs out of batter when I use it, and it feels more responsive than my old Model O Wired.

    Worthwhile upgrade from the original GPRO Wireless

    Coming from the G Pro Wireless(GPW), I didn't think the weight difference would be that substantial to justify it. I feel I was wrong. Tracking just feels easier with this compared to the original GPW. Moving it around in general feels easier, and I'm happy to have made the upgrade. I loved the GPW and the GWP Superlight just seems to have improved on what was in my opinion the best mouse on the market.

    It's back, still in black.

    This is a very nice optical mouse. I've purchased the original DeathAdder (which I actually wore out... ahh the WoW days), the RGB DeathAdder Elite, and this is my first V2. There aren't a ton of differences, physically speaking, but they did change the buttons up a little (still similar, just different shape to them). The mouse is actually lighter, and they changed the braiding on the cable. It's "looser" now, but having dealt with it for a month at this point I can say I don't mind it at all and basically don't even notice anymore. It also has slightly different pads on the bottom that are white instead of the previous black.

    It includes a profile button on the bottom and on-board memory (do you need that? I don't... but it's cool to have if I was big on dialing in my "perfect settings" then took my mouse somewhere else... without my computer... and wanted to game? weird.). Plus it's sensor is great. They've all been really great. Do I notice a major improvement or something? No. The other DeathAdder's were also great, this one did not break that trend.

    It fits better in slightly larger hands than some other mice I've owned, and I prefer it over those other mice. Some of these that I've used (or still use when I must) include "standard" generic mice you get included with new PC's (Dell in particular), a Razer Naga, and even the wireless Logitech G403 (which is a nice wireless gaming mouse, but much heavier and not as comfortable).

    All in, this is, so far, my favorite mouse to use. If it broke right now, I'd hop my quarantined self in my car and curb-side pick up another of these. Let's just hope I remember pants. What day is it again? lol

    Very precise mouse, fits perfectly in my hand, and the different settings for the lighting make it very eye-catching. I've combined it with a Razer keyboard and any and all lighting settings can be set across both devices and it looks wonderful.

    Razer Perfection - 14 years in the making.

    The Razer DeathAdder has been around since 2006, and I remember adopting this mouse as my main driver for desktop computing and usage. I have had about 4 versions of this mouse and this one is by far the most refined and best feeling to use. It is lighter than any previous version and it just feels like quality. This combination makes it weird to use for those used to heavier mice due to the fact that it feels durable and so light.

    It is snappy and the software does a decent job and customizing it. The grips on the side definitely feel firm and don't feel like they're going to come lose or fall off. I also welcome the matte finish on the mouse as opposed to a glossy texture. I also welcome the recessed top buttons that switch between precision speeds so I don't accidentally click them with normal use.

    With all those positives, the only negative I can think of is the fact that it is still a wired mouse. I know there is a wireless option for this mouse, but it's double the price. While I love quality, I'm also cheap, so I'll keep using the wired version.

    I've used this mouse for the past 13-14 years and I have always, and still love it. Get it already!

    Good over all

    Head set likes to disconnect and reconnect regardless of battery life. Which serious flabbergasts me cause it has a predominant 2.4 ghz dongle which should be better than blue tooth. I also had to buy new ear muff pads off amazon cause the stock ones arent thick enough, the hard plastic part of the head set rests on your ears.

    The mouse is great, works excellent for all games when not in power saving mode. The power saving mode should not make the mouse take much much longer to reconnect after being put to sleep from inactivity, it also reduces the range the mouse can reach.

    The keyboard is a non mechanical soft touch actually feels really fluid and smooth.

    All in all would recommend the set for 200 any more and no.

    ROCCAT - Burst Pro Lightweight PC Gaming Mouse with 16K DPI Optical Owl-Eye Sensor, Optical Switches, Titan Wheel, 68 gram weight - Black
    Description

    The ROCCAT® Burst Pro Extreme Lightweight Optical Gaming Mouse was aggressively benchmarked against market-leading symmetrically shaped mice. We wanted a design and shape that instantly felt better from the very first touch. Our aim was to have a shape that made it feel like you had nothing in your hand both in terms of a neutral shape and low weight. We wanted to do this without putting holes in the surface to cut down on mass as many competitors have done. We call it extreme lightweight engineering, and with a weight of only 68g we think the name checks out. The pride and glory of the Burst Pro is the Titan Switch Optical. The first generation of ROCCAT mice to feature the technology, the Titan Switch Optical brings game-changing benefits. Tuned for speed and durability, gamers get a familiar click feel – no learning curve – that functions at the speed of light, and with no more double-click issues. The ROCCAT® Burst Pro Extreme Lightweight Optical Pro Gaming Mouse features a striking translucent honeycomb shell that gives a smoky, hazy showcase to the AIMO lighting engine while protecting against dirt and dust. Weighing only 68g, the shell also keeps weight to an absolute minimum. As well as the Titan Switch Optical, the Burst Pro features a PhantomFlexTM cable that virtually disappears, for a near-wireless experience, and a 16K dpi Owl-Eye optical sensor. In yet another industry first, the Burst Pro features heat-treated glides that are a step above PTFE mouse feet. They are pre-tuned for incredibly smooth glide right out of the box.

    7 Features
  • ROCCAT® Bionic Shell: The Burst Pro features more efficient engineering, with a solid yet light bionic shell giving an extreme lightweight 68g – and an impressive showcase for AIMO lighting.
  • Titan Switch Optical: Faster than any mechanical switch, the Titan Switch Optical provides a long-lasting 100 million click life cycle, and speed-of-light actuation for unprecedented speed and precision.
  • ROCCAT® Owl-Eye Optical Sensor: Experience smooth, precise tracking thanks to the world-leading Owl-Eye 19K DPI optical sensor.
  • PhantomFlex™ Cable: Enjoy an experience as good as wireless with the PhantomFlex cable. Flexible, pliable and light, it virtually disappears during use to the point that you won't even know it's there.
  • Heat-Treated Pure PTFE Glides: The Burst Pro's heat-treated glides are pure PTFE glides are a game changer and a PC gaming first. They're pre-tuned so you get incredible glide and smooth mouse movements right out of the box.
  • AIMO Illumination: ROCCAT® AIMO produces vibrant lighting displays in 16.8 million colors right out of the box. It also syncs with other compatible AIMO products for illumination scenarios that flow from device to device.
  • 2-years Manufacturer Warranty: We’re confident in the quality and longevity of our products. To ensure additional peace of mind we provide a 2-year manufacturer warranty.

    This Guy Is Going To Make Some Waves. Hello Roccat

    Let me just start this review off by saying that I went into this review with low expectations. But after testing this guy out I am left blown away and it places in the top 5 mice I have ever tried. Which is a lot and include all the most expensive mice from the top brands such as Razer, Logitech, Glorious, Finalmouse, Corsair, etc. So, I’ve been around the block once or twice and this dude is making some waves. I absolutely love it.

    Pros:

    - Excellent “symmetrical ergonomic” shape. That is made for right handers, but left hand will also work you just won’t have any buttons. I found the shape to be extremely comfortable. Like the FK2. Where it is low profile on the front, with a pronounced hump on the back with slight tapering on the side. Fits any grips style (claw, fingertip, and palm) comfortably. One of the most comfortable mice I’ve tried. They also use a hybrid coating here which makes grip a 10/10. I’ve never felt a mouse with more grip in my life.

    - It comes with large side buttons that are place in a comfortable spot making them easy to reach. Delivers a crisp click after applying a light amount of actuation pressure with medium overall travel.

    - Comes with their “titan optical switches” which means they are immune to double clicks (Yay). These clicks are also incredibly crisp. The crispest out of any other mouse I own. Overall actuation and reset are low. Springback force is strong which leads to never having a mushy click. Both left and right click feel exactly the same. My only complaint about the switches is that most fps mice have light actuation force, but this guy definitely requires heavy actuation force. Which makes it feel a little less snappy. But with it being optical it also means it is slightly faster than any mechanical switch.

    - Scroll wheel is light but with defined clicks. It sticks up quite a bit. Middle mouse button requires moderate/heavy actuation and also feels crisp. Overall, it feels incredible and one of the best I’ve tried as well. Which I’m saying a lot but it’s because they actually did that good of a job.

    - DPI button is large, says DPI, and requires a light amount of actuation force with medium overall travel. It’s fine and dandy as well. No complaints but nothing great here either.

    - Mice feet are interesting as they are Pre-heated. They are also 100% PTFE with rounded edge. They are two large pads on the top and on the bottom with nothing in the middle. Overall glide is excellent and once again glides better than any of the other mice I have tried. So perhaps they have something with that pre-headedness.

    - Their version of the phnatomflex cable is excellent. Incredibly malleable. It is quite long. I completely forget that it is wired. Especially when you add that to the 68 grams of overall weight and smooth glides.

    - Speaking of the 68 grams. This is done by utilizing the ever popular honeycomb shell. However, they have an interesting take on this where it has the honeycomb design but then that honeycomb design is covered with a thin plastic sheet so you can’t feel them. Overall structural integrity of this guy is solid. I noticed no creaks even when squeezing my hardest. Where most other honeycomb designs when you squeeze the side you can activate the side buttons.

    - It comes with 6 overall buttons (left/right, side1/side2, middle mouse button, dpi button) with nothing on the bottom. You can adjust all of these buttons in their software.

    - AIMO lighting is alright. You can adjust the scroll wheel and back lighting in the software. I’d say this is average across the board.

    - Their OWL sensor (based off 3389) is an excellent sensor in the top 3 overall only being beaten by HERO and Focus+. Reports 16K DPI (adjustable in 100 DPI steps), 50 g acceleration, and 400 IPS. I noticed no aberrant behavior. Felt accurate and snappy. You can adjust lift-off distance in their software.

    - Software was alright. It works well. But it’s extremely busy to the eye. But still intuitive if you want to switch something up. It also allows you to customize nearly everything.

    - Comes at a competitive price for what you get.

    CONS:

    - I really don’t have any. It would have been nice if the actuation force for mouse 1 and 2 were light/medium. As it would have been perfect. But that comes down to personal opinion.

    - Aesthetics to me are meh. It’s not terrible but other gaming mice are far more attractive to me.

    Pog

    I got this mouse after I had two g502 hero's get double clicking issues and it was super frustrating, seems like every mechanical switch mice I get end up having double clicking issues and I did some research on optical switches and it seemed like they are more durable and dont get double clicking issues and it hasn't yet so it seems like a very good product so far. It's also very light and the cord almost disappears. Some people dont like how the switches sound or feel but for me they're 10/10 very tactile unlike mech switches, might take some getting used to tho.

    Lightweight, Loaded and Ready for Activity

    Packed with features, the ROCCAT Burst Pro Optical Owl-Eye Gaming Mouse is loaded to enhance everything about what mouse can be.

    I plugged in the ROCCAT Burst Pro Optical Owl-Eye Gaming Mouse into a USB port and then downloaded the software “Swarm” from the ROCCAT site. The next step was to reboot my computer and run the software. Once I finished rebooting and ran the software, I could customize just about anything. Assigning buttons, how colors are displayed and precise the movements make the mouse something to call your own. The “Swarm” software is a very important feature as it has some real “meat” to it. It really is a key innovation for the ROCCAT Optical gaming mouse.

    Weighing in at only “68 grams”, this is the most significant lightweight mouse I have ever used. It is incredibly engineered with outstanding touch and feel with its solid honeycomb exterior. The honeycomb pattern is molded into the mouse frame on the sides to create a great grip that without the use of heavier materials. Additionally the honeycomb design is pronounced through the entire mouse. This provides added strength with lightweight durability. Once you pick this mouse up, you will be instantly surprised as I was, as it is very lightweight.

    The popular ROCCAT Burst Pro Optical Owl-Eye Gaming Mouse features, the “Titan Optical Switch” and has improved using buttons up to “100 million clicks!” I can tell you the buttons on the mouse have a solid and snappy feel, which makes it easier to use. The buttons respond quickly but are not too sensitive or heavy when pressed. The “Titan Optical Switch” is the probably one of my favorite features because it takes stress off of clicking too hard or clicking accidentally. It is “just right” for making the right gaming moves with this mouse.

    The ROCCAT Burst Pro has an “Optical Owl-Eye Sensor” for movement. It is capable of fast and precise movements with its DPI of 16,000 (customizable). In the software you can change the speed or simply press the DPI button on top of the mouse. Gamers need this kind of direct, accurate movement when it comes to winning or losing. It feels good to have the mouse go where you want with only a nudge from your hand.

    The ROCCAT Burst Pro doesn’t feel forced to move, it actually glides when I use it. It’s “heat treated PTFE” slides, located on the bottom panels are the reason for the smooth and accurate movements. The mouse moves so effortlessly and takes the pressure off your hands and wrists. This helps with movements needed during gaming. Another corresponding feature is the “Phantom Flex Cable”. This unique cord from the mouse is pliable, light and barely there when I have used it. Gamers will have no trouble using it for hours and never experienced hand fatigue. I believe this is the best movement I have experienced with a mouse.

    Within the see-through honeycomb outer shell of the mouse, a show of “16.8 million” colors highlights the mouse. Its AIMO lighting and movement through the spectrum of colors are a regular fireworks display. You can also alter this option in the “Swarm” software. I have to say, the ROCCAT Burst Pro among other good things, looks great!

    ROCCAT Burst Pro Optical Owl-Eye Gaming Mouse has eye popping features in an ultra lightweight frame. The “Swarm” software is innovative with options to make the mouse exactly what you need. Although it is classified as gaming mouse, it is great for just normal everyday use. All the features and benefits still apply making the mouse an all round choice for anyone who wants a great experience.

    Excellent near-wireless comfort w/tons of features

    PROs:

    - White & black colorway makes for a striking departure from the all-black styling of most competing mice--couple that with the translucent, honey-comb cut shell that allows gobs of RGB to shine through and you've got quite a visual spectacle on your mouse-mat. Although only two LED zones are actually addressable (scroll wheel and main mouse), the honey-comb cutouts provide varying levels of intensity and coverage that should satisfy anyone's need for

    - 68g light is not a joke--I thought the 80g weight of the Pro G Wireless (pictured next to the Roccat below) was feather-light, but the Roccat one-ups that top-tier competition for even greater comfort

    - It's hard to describe the cable--it's wrapped in a cloth/nylon material similar to any other braided cable, but it's lighter and flexes moves more effortlessly the braided cables I have on my Logitech and Corsair mice...it bunches up (but doesn't kink) more than a typical braided cable does because it's lighter, but it therefore also offers less resistance during movement. Roccat's "PhantomFlex" marketing material claims you don't even need a cable bungee (unless cable management and tidiness is your concern), but I'll definitely attest to the fact that the cable offers so little resistance that it really DOES start to approach wireless-level comfort

    - Large and super-smooth PTFE glides (hint, they’re *not* blue—make sure you remove the thin shipping film from the glides!) makes for silky smooth motion on a mouse-mat or tabletop; optical sensor goes from 50 dpi all the way up to 16K (!!!) with five discrete levels programmable at any level in between through the Roccat Swarm client

    - Comfy ergonomic shape with slightly sculpted sides make for a very comfortable feeling under your palm...you can rest your hand on the mouse rather than cupping your hand above it, and the left-side thumb buttons are large and distinct enough that you shouldn't have any difficulty registering a click on the front button vs the rear or vice-versa

    - Scroll-wheel movement offers very little resistance while the detents are reassuringly noticeable for pleasant haptic feedback during scrolling action; but the scroll-click button requires virtually no effort to actuate!

    - Features Roccat's new Titan optical switches--supposedly faster than traditional mechanical switches because they're light-actuated rather than contact-actuated and therefore more durable, too...of course, only time will tell if I'm able to eat through the purported 100 million click rating!

    - Wonderful little flourishes like a mouse-icon on the USB connector, preinstalled ferrite core noise filter on the cable, and an extra set of pre-tuned PTFE glides included in the box!

    - Cheers to Roccat for giving us a client app that doesn’t require another login and password to provide full functionality. This was the first time I had ever used the Swarm client, but man this thing goes DEEP! Along with integrating with Alienware’s AlienFX lighting system, Roccat offers its own connected RGB effects/lighting peripheral ecosystem with Roccat Talk FX, as well as the new AIMO "intelligent" lighting system that slowly adjusts RGB lighting patterns/effects based on your movements and actions as you continue to use the mouse. The Swam client seems incredibly robust with a vast array of functions I'm still discovering how to use, especially the macro and per-game/per-program customizations you can manage in the Profile and Macro managers. But right up front, there are menus and options to:

    1) adjust vertical and horizontal scroll speed, double-click speed, Windows pointer speed, and DPI stops

    2) change illumination behavior between rainbow wave, solid, heartbeat, breathing, blinking, and the AIMO intelligent lighting option

    3) adjust polling rate (up to 1000Hz), distance control (how far you can lift the mouse before signal interruption), LED timeout, angle snapping (cursor smoothing), and activate a pretty wacky but kind of cool sound feedback option where a male voice will speak to you announcing changes in DPI levels, volume +/-, and profile switching

    4) change button behavior between one of four pre-configured presets for "basic" mousing (click, scroll, browser back/fwd, DPI cycle), working with multimedia (i.e. track controls), precision gaming with a hot-key for low-DPI aiming, and a host of other customizable functions including using one of the side buttons as a "Shift" key (called "Easy-Shift+") to access another full set of functions from the same mouse buttons

    5) manage/store up to 5 game profiles for unique button/function customization as well as access stored macros covering dozens of popular games as well as common Office, Skype, Photoshop, and Windows functions--oh, and you can record your own macros and bind them to one of the mouse buttons within one of the four button assignment profiles

    CONs:

    - The Swarm client can actually be a bit intimidating, especially if you're just looking for a simple but high-performing gaming mouse without a lot of overhead. But you do *need* the app to get the full benefit of the Burst Pro's features including higher DPI settings and button assignment (which are not natively available in Windows). There are pop-up information tabs for most functions to tell you what they are, but I couldn't find any decent instructions within the app itself (the FAQ section is currently blank) for some of the more complex functions like Macro recording and Profile creation/storage, which are frankly not as self-evident as Roccat's software designers probably think they are

    - I can't rightly say that I noticed the fraction of a microsecond decrease in click actuation time that the Titan optical switches are supposed to provide (but I'll take their word for it), but I can say that the left and right mouse-click buttons DO require quite a bit more force and travel to actuate than the feather-light touch I'm used to on my G Pro Wireless, even if the actuation itself is quicker once the optical sensor actually registers a break in the light beam. If you have larger fingers or prefer a more solid, reassuring 'click' to your mousing, this is definitely for you--but if your gaming style calls for ultra-small, ultra-quick, ultra-light mouse clicks, be aware that this mouse seems to require a slightly firmer touch

    - Another minor observation related to the issue above is that because the left and right mouse buttons require some additional force to actuate, they're slightly louder than some of the softer-touch buttons features on the competition's mice--probably not a big deal if you game on your own, but the sound is appreciably loud and deep enough to add to the din of an already noisy office setting or other public place where disturbing your neighbors might be of slight concern

    - Okay, this one is pretty minor, but I'm not sure how sold I am yet on the AIMO "intelligent lighting" thing. It's supposed to adapt to your mousing activities and offer new effects and lighting patterns over time, or at least, vary the kinds of effects it produces as you're using it. I can speak to the latter--the color changes and variations between the lighting on the main shell and the scroll wheel DO seem to change depending on how much and how fast I'm mousing around and clicking the buttons, but I haven't had the mouse that long so I don't know what things will look like in a few months, or how consistent that behavior will be from game to game once the Swarm client has "learned" my mousing habits (i.e. will the effects on Doom Eternal really look any different from those on Red Dead Redemption 2?). And with only two real lighting "zones" to work with, the effects aren't as striking as they might be with one of Roccat's own alternatives that feature more LED zones and lighting strips

    - Sadly, the left-side button placement means this mouse is not ambidextrous, nor are additional mouse buttons available on the right side for extra shortcuts...the "Easy-Shift+" feature works well enough and I give Roccat mad props for thinking of/including something so useful, but an extra one or two buttons on the right might be easier to work with and easier to remember in the heat of battle than having to activate a shift button to then click yet another button among those that remain to get the same effect

    - Maybe in a future release, Roccat can add horizontal scroll tilt to the wheel action, or a release switch to allow free spinning to help navigate those truly monstrous windows, spreadsheets or giant Photoshop images

    Parting thoughts:

    I admit I wasn't sure what to expect from the Roccat; they're a recognizable, but still smaller, name in the PC peripherals game next to some heavy hitters like Logitech, Corsair, Razer, etc. and this was my first experience with one of their mice. But their Burst Pro is really something quite exceptional and fully holds its own next to some of the top-tier wired and wireless mice I own from their competitors. Yes, if you've already got a competitor's keyboard or headset that includes function/lighting customization of its own, you'll have to contend with another software client on your PC to manage the myriad of features the Burst Pro offers (obviously not an issue if you're sticking with Roccat's line of keyboards and headsets). But the Swarm client was actually much more full-featured than I expected and offers enough deep customization that I can't imagine anyone not being satisfied with the results unless they simply need a mouse with more physical buttons. And at least during my use, I never found it to be a resource hog (Task Manager showed it clocking in at just over 65MB of RAM usage and 0% CPU drain) or crash unexpectedly. As for the mouse itself, the Burst Pro's comfort, ergonomics, and responsiveness make it a strong contender for any high-performance gaming rig or demanding gamer--so if the style strikes your fancy, the Burst Pro is definitely a winner!

    Fast DPI, Light Mouse

    Pros: -Very light

    -Feels great; mouse clicks need just the right amount of pressure to click

    -Max 16000dpi sensor

    Cons: -Wish there were more customizable buttons

    -No wireless option

    For those that don't know (like I didn't), Roccat is a German created, gaming peripheral company with many years of experience under their belt (started in 2007). Being acquired by Turtle Beach and having continued with the same mission to create high quality gaming hardware, they are a reputable company with great craftsmanship.

    Weighing only at 68g, the Roccat Burst Pro Mouse is very light and creates for a very smooth scrolling experience. The smoothness also comes from the bottom heat treated PTFE "glides." These glides (what is usually the rubbery portion of the bottom of the mouse to help it stick well to a surface) really do make the mouse glide. Over on the top there is a DPI button (switch from 50dpi to 16000dpi) and on its left side two additional buttons you can assign functions to. There are also nice RGB lights on the scroll wheel as well as in the area where you rest your palm.

    The mouse feels great in my hand; having what I consider medium-sized hands, I am able to rest my palm comfortably on it and game for hours at a time. One of the things I found I liked the most about the Burst Pro was Roccat's Titan Switch Optical mouse click technology. I find myself making accidental clicks with the weight of my hand resting on mice and with this mouse was did not find myself making any unintentional clicks. Just the right amount of pressure needed to make those headshots when playing first person shooters.

    To really unlock all of the customizable features available for the Burst Pro, you will need to download and install the Roccat Swarm software. From the software, you can change the DPI cycle interval of the DPI button (5 intervals), manage mouse lighting, set gaming profiles, create macros for buttons, and a few other settings.

    Now for the bad. On the Burst Pro there are only 3 buttons located on the mouse (other than the scroll wheel, and left and right click buttons). One is specifically for changing the dpi and two located on the left of the mouse. Although all buttons can be changed to a specified function, it would've been nicer to have more button options. Also, Roccat offers a wired solution for the Burst Pro mouse but not a wireless option. The cable it comes with does have a nice feel to it though and noticed it does not get in the way during fast movement (nor can you feel it).

    Overall I love how it feels in my hand and how smooth it "glides." I would recommend it to gamers or those in general who would like a lightweight mouse with RGB lighting. Aside from the lack of physical buttons and no wireless option, it is one fantastic gaming mouse.

    Beautiful mouse, very lightweight

    I love Mice... I play a lot of PC games and have tried many different ones.

    This Roccat Burst Pro is a great choice and for me at least its my favorite one.

    What I personally like. It is light. My wife things its cheap and in fact asked me why I use it and like it as she equates the light feel as being made cheaply. I don't see it to be honest, I feel judging by the nice quality of the wire/cable and nice design that yes it is light but not necessarily poor quality. So if your tired of heavy bulky mice you will like it.

    I love the simplistic way it works, I personally didn't download any apps just took it out of the box pressed the button with big letters DPI on top and picked the perfect speed for what I prefer. It has like 5 or 6 pre designed speeds so it would work for anyone (then again you can upload the app if you want to customize further).

    The colors are beautiful, very bright. It is very responsive, love its clickiness (not too loud, not too quiet).

    Weird that I like this more then alot of my other mice to be honest but I do. It is not wireless so if your looking for a wireless option look at other options, but if you want a very reliable great looking, great ergonomic design for a mouse this is a top quality choice. I am loving it.

    Kind of a pain in the neck to get my Viper 8K cord in cause its a thicker cable but you sorta want that so you know its not gonna fall out cause of a slight jerk. stays in place when gaming while not feeling like a total brick when you wana move it.

    "Fire" button added extra button function

    Each button on Red Dragon M612 Predator mouse can be user configured for user selected custom function.

    This includes "Fire" button at left from left click can also be reconfigured for custom function.

    While M612 Predator has lower dpi than M711 Cobra, M612 Centrophorus2 lower DPI is almost as accurate as M711 Cobra.

    *RedDragon M612 Predator, M711 Cobra and Centrophorus2-M601 mice all require its own driver. If M612, 711 and M601 drivers are installed on same Windows PC, each Dragon Dragon mouse will show its own icon at Windows taskbar. M612 Predator driver is compatible with M11 Cobra. M612 Centrophorus2 mouse requires its own driver and cannot use M612 or M711 mouse driver.

    The Razer basilisk Ultimate!

    Don't hesitate to buy this mouse. I got this mouse for a steal. It was on sale for 80 bucks off. So, I had to jump on it. It is wireless, has 20k dpi (max) programmable buttons, and a bunch of awesome features. RGB lighting. A charger base that is magnetic and it has rgb lighting as well. It has a button, that you can install on the side of the mouse, that allows you to slow down the speed/sensitivity of your mouse, allowing for amazing precision (Very useful for fps games) so, if you like your gaming wireless, then you MUST buy this! Especially as an entry level mouse. Most definitely 5⭐

    Best wireless gaming mouse I’ve had

    The Razer basilisk ultimate has got to be the best mouse I’ve used. The razer hyper speed wireless connectivity provides extremely low latency and I don’t feel any inefficiency in my gaming. I know a lot of players are tried and trued to the wired gaming mouse but I can guarantee you’ll love and appreciate the wireless set up if you pick the basilisk ultimate.

    For design it’s super ergonomic and is comfortable to hold for long period of gaming. I have the mouse set to full rgb brightness and still get 20ish hours of game time on it. You can probably get even more if you set the rgb colors dimmer. And speaking of RGB you get 14 lighting zones that you can mess around with in razers refreshed synapse program. You can pick a few presets or get down and dirty in the advance lighting options to truly make it personalized to yourself. You can also make set profiles for the mouse too.

    The scroll wheel is also adjustable. You can change the resistance to your liking.

    And at the end of the day when your done appreciating the glory that is the razer basilisk, you can place that bad boy on it’s cool rgb charging dock stand. The charging dock uses a sticky almost rubber feet so it isn’t gunna go anywhere or tip over if you try putting the mouse on it. And thanks to razer synapse program you can have the RGB lighting match the mouse.

    All in all this is a great mouse that won’t upset you. It’s worth the money!

    BEST MOUSE ON THE MARKET

    If you choose any other mouse besides this one you’re doing it wrong. Logitech knows exactly what’s up when it comes to gaming and they have proof with this mouse right here.

    It has 5 programable buttons that you can set to whatever you want. Also has a dpi button that changes your mouse’s sensitivity and a mouse scroll wheel lock that can make your middle mouse button scroll freely or normally. Fits my hand perfectly and everyone that I have recommended this mouse to have loved it and I hope you do too!

    Not to mention it does light up, in case you like that. And it comes with weights that you can add to the bottom of the mouse in case it is too light

    Great feeling mouse

    I am a female, so my hands are probably a "medium" in the overall world of hand sizes. My previous gaming mouse was too bulky for my hand and I was constantly getting hand cramps from using it. There was so much height to the palm rest and it was just uncomfortable.. I dreaded playing games because I would have to use the mouse. This one fits my hand much better and feels more comfortable against my palm. The thumb rest is aligned well and I like how the side buttons can easily be reached without having to move my whole thumb.

    The scroll wheel is adjustable to free spin and regular scroll. The dpi can be easily changed by the buttons on top next to your left click.

    Overall the installation was easy. I added 2 of my weights to the bottom and it plugged in and started working with no issues.

    I found it to be a great price on sale (~ $40) for what I was looking for at the time.

    An excellent all around gaming mouse.

    Purchased for a friend as a birthday gift since his older Logitech mouse (I believe it was around six years old) started to experience an issue with the right mouse button. After messing it with off and on since I use his computer occasionally I feel I have enough experience with the mouse to write a review but I wanted to be to be clear that this mouse is not my daily.

    Pros:

    Build quality and ergonomics feel solid and I felt no discomfort even after several hours of use whether the activity be gaming or just browsing. Actuation force needed for top and side buttons is minimal with average travel distance although I do feel a difference between the left and right top buttons when I press down but I think that has more to do with me than anything. Clicks are audible but not loud enough to be distracting. The top cover is not one solid shell so Left and Right mouse buttons have individual tops. If you game competitively (especially playing FPS) this is a must have feature. My Razer Lancer TE is a one piece top shell and feels sluggish compared to the G502 Hero when playing games like CS:GO Valorant and Overwatch. Buttons are mappable (to be fair almost all gaming mice can do this) and the mouse has a DPI clutch that can be used to adjust quickly for precision shooting and then resets back to the previous setting quickly. Weight is adjustable if you want to customize. I recommend maxing it out and then removing the weights in stages to see what works for you. Finally the heart of the mouse is the Pixart PMW3366 sensor that is usually found in higher end mice ($75 and up) and is what helps the G502 it punch above its weight when it comes to optics.

    RGB is present on the mouse but it is very minimal with only the G symbol and the DPI selection indicators being illuminated (can be turned off in software). The Logitech software (G HUB) has in my opinion one of the best UI's I have ever used and is generally easier to use when compared to the other RGB/control software I have used from some other companies. I also have a G910 Orion Spectrum I use as a secondary keyboard and G HUB works well with that too. When it comes to procedures like creating key bindings, making/saving profiles, and customizing the RGB it works quite well. Finally, the price which generally hovers around $50 which is more than fair for a quality mouse that will last you for years.

    Cons:

    RGB again is very minimal which could be an issue depending on visual taste. The mouse is kinda small and that could be an issue for someone with large hands especially if you experience discomfort with the thumb rest as you might find yourself pressing DPI clutch in the middle of a fire fight. It does have very gamer look going on which can be a turn off for some. The free flowing scroll wheel with clutch can seem out of place for some since this is marketed as a gaming mouse. I really wish they squeezed in at least one (preferably two) side buttons for the right side of the mouse. General lack of buttons could be an annoyance for games like a MMORPG.

    I’ve used the razer deathadder and razer naga and In my opinion they don’t even compare to the g502 hero. I’ve had the g502 for about 2 days and collectively used the mouse for 8 hours of gaming and 10+ hours of productivity and I am very satisfied with this mouse. I have pretty small hands and this mouse still very comfortable in the hand. I really cant think of anything that would make someone not want to purchase this mouse besides the fact that the scroll wheel down button is pretty resistant so if someone likes the use the middle mouse button then it might be a problem. However, there are 10 other programable buttons so for the majority I think this shouldn’t be a problem. The middle mouse button is also cold to the touch most of the time which isn’t bothering but it might annoy some people. I realized that the left wheel tilt button is easier the press than the right wheel tilt button (not by much). The hyperscroll is fun to fidget with. When I was working it was helpful but not that accurate. The left and right mouse buttons are really easy to press. For me it took a few hours to get used to because the mouse I was using right before (razer naga) had more resistant clicks. With the g502 I definitely feel faster in my movements in game and at work. The side buttons are really nice the click and easy to locate even in the dark. It did take an hour or 2 to get used to the positioning for me but it was very comfortable once I got it right. The rgb isn’t great but I personally like the subtleness or if (unlike the massive lit razer logo). The mouse itself is just as/a little less heavy than the razer naga but it’s good weight for me. The extra weights included feel premium but make the mouse a little too heavy (I do know some people that have up to all the weights in their mouse. It’s all up to personal preference). The grips on the sides and the glides on the button of the mouse are very nice and I have no problem moving or lifting the mouse. The glides are very smooth. I use my mouse on a steelseries mouse pad and it’s great. My palm wrests very nicely on the mouse and the texture is very comfortable. The software isn’t too great but gets the job done. I was definitely lost for a good 10 minutes until I figured out how to program the buttons. The on board memory is great because I can save my presets and never have touch ghub again. My favorite part of the mouse has to be the sensor. It just feels so much more accurate. I play rainbow six seige mostly and after getting the mouse I averaged 4-12 kills per game which was a huge step up because before with my naga, that has an atrocious sensor, my aim was very inconsistent and made playing not fun. Overall the mouse is amazing and personally I have no complaints.

    Best mouse for work or play

    I enjoy this mouse and all its features daily. My son uses his for gaming and I use mine for office work. The scrolling wheel and options to switch to click or spin is phenomenal. Mouse speed is another click up or down. Also, enjoy the browse back or forward buttons.

    Been waiting for a white ver

    Absolutely gorgeous mouse! I have every single G502 mouse. I had purchased the SE because it had tracings of white on it for my white build and then when this came out I instantly bought it. I don’t play LoL anymore it’s been 6 years but I can still appreciate the mouse. It doesn’t scream LoL too much you can just view the KDA as a brand name. I love the fit of this mouse because I have small hands and my bf who has big hands loves his as well. It’s a well rounded mouse for everyone. I take out all my weights because I like super light mice while my bf likes his heavier and has all the weights in. I also REALLY love the feel of the scroll wheel it’s textured and you can change if you want a seamless or bumped scroll. Also I LOVE being able to change my DPI on the fly since I use this to work as well and require a lower DPI than when I’m gaming. All buttons feel fantastic and the clicks are super responsive and quick. I never have complaints on these mice. But it being a mouse I always suggest buying a 2 year protection plan because no matter what mouse you get there’s a chance the buttons or clicks will stop being responsive. And Best Buy makes it easy. Also a noted difference between both the SE and the black versions this doesn’t have a corded cord this ones a normal smooth cord which was kind of disappointing.

    Excellent mouse for gaming and production work!

    Excellent mouse for gaming and production work!

    I haven't been able to run the battery out because it's so efficient. I use it almost every day for hours on end, and never once has there been any lag or delay from the mouse to the computer. It's light, and quick to move around. You can change the sensitivity anytime with a click of a button (located just under the scroll wheel)

    Excellent mouse, highly recommend!

    Good no frills gaming mouse

    The G305 gaming mouse by Logitech is a no-frills entry level gaming mouse for people who want to use the latest sensor technology but don’t want to pay as much as the premium gaming mice. The mouse is wireless only and uses a replaceable AA for power – which is handy as it is easy to get it going again when the battery dies. Logitech advertises a very long battery life for this mouse using their newest sensor technology and there is a low battery indicator that tells you to swap out the battery when it does get low. One note – you must download and install the Logitech Gaming software to use all of the features of this mouse.

    As far as performance, this mouse performs well. The up to 12,000 dpi sensor technology in the G series optical mice is impressive, and honestly I would recommend anyone who spends a decent amount of time in spreadsheets or especially diagramming using a mouse purchase a gaming mouse for those uses as well – the high quality sensors make those jobs much easier.

    One limitation on this mouse is the number of buttons. With only two side buttons and no horizontal scroll, you are limited to 6 buttons. One nice feature though for Logitech G mice is the ability to map one button to “G-Shift”, which allows the other buttons to perform a second function when the shift button is also held down. I personally map the mouse wheel button to this function, and then map the other buttons on the mouse to other things I use regularly.

    For ergonomics, this mouse is pretty compact and can be used in either hand, although the side buttons are kind of awkward for lefties. It’s actually a great travel gaming mouse – not too bulky or heavy, and completely self-contained with a slot under the back for the receiver to go.

    I would recommend this mouse for a PC user who wants to step up the sensitivity of their mouse, for a gamer on a budget, or for a gamer who wants a compact option to pack with a laptop for travel. The lack of buttons is a limitation on this mouse, but the sensor and the simple battery replacement are both nice features.

    Great USB Wireless Mouse!

    I originally got this for my PS4 Pro. I had a bluetooth mouse before this one and it had a lot of connection and interference issues. This Logitech mouse is much better. I have not had a single connection issue and it is really responsive. The response time on this mouse is low enough to where I cannot feel any delay. The DPI is also high enough and changeable to where moving the camera in games is smooth. The only downside to this mouse is that it is not rechargeable and requires changing out the batteries.

    Good mouse especially for the price.

    Good mouse for the price. The Lightspeed connection never fails. Batter life is relatively good and easy to get up and going again. Just a quick switch of a double a battery and your off to the races again. For hardcore gamers I definitely wouldn't recommend this mouse. Just way better options out their with similar prices. I say this mouse is more for casual users. Have it in heavy use for a year and its still holding up well. Good overall

    Logitech has great reputation. Switched out the battery cover for a 3d printed one with hexagon holes and used an adapter to convert a AAA to AA battery. Now it's much lighter.

    Great mouse!

    This mouse works great. It’s wireless via usb dongle (not Bluetooth), which actually has better performance than Bluetooth mouse. I used this to replace a Bluetooth mouse that kept losing traction and disconnecting. I use this both for work as a UX designer/researcher for 8-9 hours a day, plus occasional online gaming. And the extra side buttons are nice for that because I can add additional actions or shortcuts to them.

    Great Mouse So Far!!

    Great mouse so far only in two or so days but definitely an upgrade my my 7 year old mouse. One thing that bothers me is that since it’s a school laptop and isn’t the best the mouse glitches but it’s purely because of the performance of my laptop. Got it for 15 off during really Black Friday but for the original of 55$ plus tax not really that worth but for 40 definitely worth.

    I was looking for a simple wired mouse that had an RGB light that would look great with my computer setup. I settled on this mouse since it was affordable and had everything I needed.

    Accurate and Excellently Weighted

    KEY FEATURES

    Fully Customizable

    26000 dpi Resolution

    Up to 1000Hz Polling

    INITIAL SET-UP AND CONFIGURATION

    My opinions of the Razer Synapse software stated in my review of the Huntsman keyboard carryover to the Basilisk mouse. I won't rehash all the details, but I do not like the Synapse software. Like the keyboard, the freshly downloaded Synapse software would not recognize the Basilisk mouse without first downloading a 100+MB software update. Additionally, Windows 10 did not recognize the device after plugging it in either. So initial set-up is definitely WAY MORE cumbersome than most any other mouse on the market.

    USE AND PERFORMANCE

    The mouse is great! It is weighted perfectly and glides smoothly and precisely. The mouse has a premium texture and feel about it. The left and right buttons have the same odd texture that the new Huntsman keyboard has. Like the keyboard, it feels odd at first, but after a couple of minutes, you wonder why other mice don't have the same texture.

    The Synapse software allows for full customization of the mouse. Buttons, Macros, sensitivity, scrolling, precision, it is all there and fully adjustable to your liking. Similar to Razer's other products, the lighting is bright and vibrant. The colors are rich and true, unlike some other manufacturers' products that tend to look dull and washed out. One unique feature that is a gimmick, but I find thoroughly enjoyable is the LED strip a the bottom of the mouse. It is recessed just enough that it makes the mouse appear like it is levitating on the mousepad. Cool!

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    It's hard to write a huge amount about a mouse. But final thoughts are that I seriously doubt anyone would be disappointed. It is a precise and well-made piece of hardware that manages to satisfy what gamers' want as well as what business and casual users need.

    If you are already invested in the Razer infrastructure and in need of a new mouse, this should be a no-brainer. If you are not already invested, but need a mouse and have been curious about Razer's qualities, you won't be disappointed and may very well win you over to their universe.

    Like my review of other Razer products, this is a 5 star mouse hampered by 3 star software. I don't see how this mouse wouldn't serve any buyer well.

    An easy to use colorful gaming mouse

    I’ve been bouncing back and forth between a small wireless mouse and a trackpad for a long time now. So, switching over to a wired gaming mouse was an intriguing opportunity. The mouse is very lightweight and easy to move around. My main computer is a Mac and I didn’t have any issues with connecting it for use.

    The packaging is simple and well defined. I’ve seen a lot of mouses have poorly designed retail boxes, but this one is hard to miss and you can easily identify the mouse as the Razer Basilisk V3. If you have a machine that uses Windows 10 or higher, you can take full advantage of the programmable mouse buttons alongside the Razer Cortex software. The form of the mouse is great and it fits most hands. The scroll wheel can switch between smooth and clicky. I’ve had this feature for a while with my wireless mouse so it was a welcome addition to this model.

    I didn't have any issues with moving the mouse around on my XL mouse/desk pad. The mouse is very comfortable use and the placement of the buttons is great. The shape/design of the mouse is also very aesthetically pleasing. It just looks really cool. I love that it has RGB lights built in. They are bright and colorful. I don’t usually like wired mouses because the wire clutters up my desktop. The cable on this mouse is lightweight and honestly, I haven’t noticed it much. I don’t feel tethered to anything like I usually do when I am using a wired mouse.

    The mouse is a quality product and incredibly solid in nature. It’s easy to use for gaming as well as standard operating procedures.

    Responsive and light

    Pros

    Relatively light

    Cord isn’t even noticeable

    5 profiles can be stored onboard

    Notched and free spin wheel

    Cons

    No glide

    pad on the right side of mouse

    Design

    At first glance, you would be forgiven if you thought the Basilisk V3 was a V2. Externally the changes are subtle. The trigger button is not fixed in place, not removable, and is shorter. A light now surrounds the base which causes the base to glow. Underneath, the control to switch from notched scrolling to free spin is gone and has been replaced with a software control of the mode. Also, underneath is a profile switch button as it can now store up to 5 profiles directly into onboard storage.

    Setup and Performance

    While not the lightest mouse available, the Basilisk feels light and comfortable in the hand. It is very flickable and switch activation is fast without being so touchy as to allow accidental activation. The Speedflex cable seems unnoticeable and thankfully doesn’t seem to snag on anything. It feel as though it were a wireless mouse. Quick movements are precise with no perceptible lag over overshoot.

    At first glance, the most noticeable change over the previous generation is the lighting. However, the most significant change is the scroll wheel. You can change from natural scrolling to notched scrolling using a button on the top, but the control is electronic. This means you can also control it through software and via game profiles. You can also a setting where you have the wheel change modes based on speed. Go slow and it is in notched mode but speed up enough and it becomes free spinning. It seems like a nice idea but the transition between modes is abrupt and somewhat odd as you hear it click and feel it change feel during operation. This possibly is a feature that you can get accustomed to, but for now it’s interesting but odd. Most people would likely choose to set it in the preferred mode manually or use the profile switch option as it is more seamless. Where is really comes in handy is in profiles. Do you like the wheel to scroll freely outside of games but need finer control in game? Just set your game profile for notched movement of the wheel. When you fire up the game it will automatically switch modes on the wheel. Once you exit, it switches back to free spinning all on its own. The buttons feel consistent and activate almost exactly at the same moment you hear and feel the click, possibly just slightly before. The pressure required is well weighted, not overly sensitive nor too hard. If there was any criticism of the design, it would be the glide pads. While having a large left pad and only a tiny pad around the sensor for the right works, it seems likely that down the wrong this could cause issues.

    With Razer Synapse you can map and change the function of each button and the scroll wheel. You can also create profiles that automatically switch between games. A nice additional is onboard profile storage. If you want to take your mouse with you, you can also store up to 5 profiles directly into the onboard storage on the mouse. You can switch between them using a profile switch on the bottom. This way you don’t have to have Synapse installed in every place you use the Basilisk. Just make to upload the profiles you need before you go.

    Final Thoughts

    It’s hard top find fault with the Razer Basilisk V3. It’s smooth, responsive, and feels comfortable. If you are in the market for a gaming mouse and are open to the idea of a wired one, its worth giving the Basilisk V3 a try. You might find yourself happy surprised you chose a wired.

    A serious mouse for serious gamers

    The Razer Basilisk V3 wired optical mouse is a terrific mouse for gamers. With 11 programmable buttons, you can not only make it work for you, but customize it for every game you play. My first recommendation is to use the Razer software called Synapse. It allows you to make adjusts to the buttons and the RGB lighting, and you can create an account or login to your existing one, to save your settings. The Synapse software is used for a lot of Razer products, so if you also have a Razer keyboard, you can use the same program to adjust both devices.

    The software is also a good place to figure out what all those buttons do. In my case, my previous mice was simpler so I needed a little help. You can also use the Chroma Studio to sync the RGB colors with other lighting devices, including Philips Hue lightbulbs. Nanoleafs have been discontinued, but are still supported to some degree, at least for now, although it says July 2021.

    Out of the box, the mouse was a litte too fast for me, but one of the default buttons changes the DPI, so I could quickly switch to the perfect setting. The mouse feels very responsive and accurate, and it was a pleasure playing games with it. It does a great job at non-gaming tasks too, like browsing.

    I would argue that this is the most complete mouse on the market, in terms of functionality, at least for gamers. The scroll button in particular, is so much more useful than a typical one, especially since you can go sideways, but also because of alternative smart scrolling settings.

    I found the Basilisk V3 to be comfortable after hours of use, which is important for extended gaming sessions. It’s wired, but as long as the cable is placed correctly, that shouldn’t be a concern, and it’s made out of a nice, soft material that doesn’t get stuck as easily as typical rubber cables. I’m glad it’s wired actually because it keeps the latency and connection in check.

    Judging by the feel of the material and continued use of buttons and wheel, this thing feels like it’s built to last a long time. This was my first Razer mouse, but it doesn’t look like it will be my last. The price seems pretty fair to me, considering the quality of the product. I have no harsh criticisms for this mouse, at least not after a few days of use, so I’m giving it two thumbs up.

    So fluid.

    You have to appreciate the plug and play ability of this mouse and all things supported by Razer’s Synapse desktop client. RGB has come a long way and the ease to set this up is highly appreciated. The software will automatically be offered for you to download when this is plugged into your computer if it is set to do so.

    It feels really light to the touch in operation. Not only does it look like it’s floating with the ring of LEDs active at the base, it feels like it as well. I also didn’t find that I was having an issue with accidental clicks because of how effortless it is to move. The cord is made of one of the lightest and softest cables I have ever tested on a mouse. It’s a lot like a shoelace and has no discernable drag on a desk surface. It may sound like an odd description, but it is an incredible design.

    One of my favorite settings that I found so far are on the scroll wheel. Changing the tactile spin in a program rather than a physical toggle on the mouse itself is an excellent weight saving design. The Smart-Reel option is perfect for getting to the end of a long web page or document. Every button is customizable. Run programs, enter text, change sensitivity, change profiles, run shortcuts, disable buttons, change lighting, etc. Even the profile button at the base of the mouse can be customized to do something you would otherwise not ever want to do with an accidental click.

    I’m sure most consumers of RGB products buy them for the looks. And this mouse absolutely delivers there. The absurdly easy integration with Wallpaper Engine is...legit. However, I encourage you to dive into Synapse and really look into how you can make your daily computing and gaming experience more efficient using the wide range of custom options it offers.

    Fantastic mouse for a fantastic price

    Great mouse! It is well priced and well designed. I love the RGB lighting. Synapse can customize the RGB lighting, DPI, surface calibration, and button mapping.

    The new scroll wheel is god tier. It's awesome and extremely satisfying. Razer totally nailed it!

    Pros:

    - lots of beautiful RGB lighting

    - well placed thumb buttons

    - free-spin scroll wheel works great

    - super comfortable in the hand

    - very flexible wire

    - the optical switches feel great and have a nice click noise

    Cons:

    - the "sniper" DPI button is a bit too mushy, I would have liked it to be more firm and clicky, a bit too much force to press it in my opinion

    - the scroll wheel is a little bit louder than my previous mouse, but it's not too bad after getting used to it

    - a little over 100g is a bit heavy, but it feels very familiar coming from my previous mouse

    - the two buttons below the scroll wheel (scroll wheel lock/unlock and DPI adjustment) can be a bit awkward to press sometimes

    - not fingertip grip friendly, palm grip is best. claw grip will be fine. small hands will feel awkward, medium and large hands will feel comfortable

    The limits of value and performance

    The right-handed ergonomic design and appearance is very clearly the Thunderbird family style. Its size is medium to large, its lines are round and natural, and its weight of 101 grams is much lighter than the G502. v3's two scroll wheel modes are very surprising, which is why there was a delay in switching to Thunderbird. The newly added RGB light band is very stunning, and it can bring users a more excellent lighting atmosphere performance.

    simple and clean...crispy clicks

    Really loving this mouse. I swapped from a Glorious Model O wireless and I'm glad I did and don't miss that one ever.

    Definitely a good mouse for anyone with a small-med hand/palm.

    definitely great for claw grippers for gaming or everyday use.

    Light and comfortable, but doesn't feel cheap at all.

    Clicks on all the buttons are nice and crisp, super satisfying.

    My only cons for this mouse are that it doesn't use an internal battery and uses either a AA or AAA battery (+1 to Razer for including battery in the box though) and that it requires Razer software to make any changes to performance.

    Overall solid mouse at the price point where there is definitely a lot of competition

    Better than Viper Ultimate!

    Great wireless mouse! I bought the Viper Ultimate at the same time and ended up returning the Viper. I was originally using the Logitech G305, but I didn't find the Viper's ambidextrous design comfortable at all. The Orochi is much better and despite it's ambidextrous design, the slight ergonomic features are much better than the Viper and G305. Orochi side clicks are superior to the Viper. Overall, satisfied with the mouse and I have no issues thus far. Only complaint, slightly overpriced.

    Awesome Fingertip mouse- upgrade firmware

    Orochi is one the best wireless mouse available today. The Logitech G305 is similar in that it does take a battery but the shape is very different. The Orochi is much smaller/lighter, it's perfect for fingertip. But not great if you claw or palm grip, unless you have small hands.

    This mouse has major dpi deviation, so running it at 400 or 800 is faster than normal 400/800 dpi. To combat this run the mouse in multiples of 600, 1200, 1800 for dpi and set the ingame to match the edpi.

    Also this mouse may have sensor skipping issue depending on the usb port you use. I had to upgrade the firmware from Razer website. It's easy to upgrade but your computer needs to have blutooth for it to update.

    PROS

    This mouse is very comfortable for fingertip grip. It has a great thumb groove on left. Something the G305 doesn't have. It is much lighter than G305.

    Option to use AA or AAA battery- longest life in mouse Iv'e seen. I use rechargeable AAA to make it lighter.

    Clicks are very clicky and tactile, they use mechanical switches. Haven't heard too many complaints about doubleclicking.

    The feet seam decent. Mine scratch a little bit, upgrading to tiger arc ice feet.

    CONS

    It is small- not recommended for large hands unless you use figertip grip.

    The forward mouse sensor may take some time to get used to. It may take some time to adjust. Just play aimlabs for a week and you'll adjust. I do feel the sensor is more reactive to my micro finger motions when fingertiping.

    No USB extender you may get interference.

    CONCLUSION

    Some say this is just a travel mouse but I use it as my main for Valorant. It is built solid. The mouse has low click latency. I do wish Razer would upgrade this mouse to the focus sensor and add a usb extender. If you have larger hands and clawgrip, I'd recommend the g305 though. Fingertip on this thing is amazing you have so much room for microadjustments.

    Budget wireless mouse

    One of the best wireless mouse out in the market. I was using the superlight for months but the shape just isn't for me. Razer then released the orochi v2 and quickly replaced my superlight as my main mouse. Better switches and mouse feet for half the price.

    Much better than expected.

    So, I've been running a razer basilisk wireless as my mouse. I thought it was light, and fast, but often times, I would take my laptop to work, and forget my mouse, so I decided to buy this one as a secondary. I almost didn't, because I really thought the basilisk was super light as is, and how much lighter can it get? Wow, the orochi is about 2/3 the weight of the basilisk. (both weighed with battery). it's also a lot smaller, even though it didn't look like it at first. The finish on it, seems more "durable" than the one on my basilisk. as far as button actuation goes, I think, you will end up choking up a little bit on the orochi, and your finger will end up clicking, vs the finger tips on the basilisk. The only thing I miss is the thumb rest, but I'm using this more for work. One caveat, I'm a controller gamer, vs kbm, but my daughter used it, and she liked the white one better (her words, not mine), while playing minecraft. The one thing that I did wish they would have done, is make the dongle usb c vs usb a, just to show that they are moving forward. Lots of newer laptops are usb c/thunderbolt only now.

    Great Mouse

    Like everything else in the Omen product line, this mouse is exceptionally well built, and well designed. I did return this product, but not for any faults. I decided to upgrade to the wireless Omen Photon after purchasing the Omen Outpost mousepad in order to get the best value out of the mousepad, which comes with wireless Qi charging for the wireless mouse. But if you are going for a great wired mouse, this is the one to beat.

    Not great!

    Cheap feeling and clunky in the palm. I compared this side by side w the razer basilisk and the basilisk won by a landslide in quality comfort accuracy and overall feel. This is not good for finger/claw style gamers. It might be ok for palm pushers but the mouse is way too big for me. It also feels like cheap and hollow plastic the rubber grips on the side do not feel premium and gummy. The paint finish also was inferior to razers eggshell feel. Only thing good I can say is that it syncs to omen command center and it was cheap.

    Great Wireless Mouse

    First of all there is nothing to fear in speed or reaction times for gaming, I've played csgo, valorant, and other shooters (not professionally) same as moba , like league and tons of other games.

    The main reason I bought a wireless mouse is to eliminate wires from my setup to make it more clean and it accomplished that perfectly.

    Battery wise (in 2.4 mode) I don't have a perfectly accurate measurement, but with everything in standard out of box config, it lasts like 5 days of regular usage which is... o.k. The cable cord for charging the mouse is great with good distance so I don't worry at all about that, the only "mistake" I'd say is how hard it is to remove the cable after plugging it since it has a really cool engage method but not so cool when trying to take it out.

    TLDR; I like coming back to death adder after a long time of abyssus and i'm pretty happy with it so far

    Classic all rounder goes wireless

    Great shape for palm and claw grip. Being less than 90grams for a wireless mouse of this size is impressive. Side buttons are in the perfect position, good size, and feel nice. Left and right click are acceptable but could be better, have a little to much post travel but its not a deal breaker. The skates are great out of the box, on the faster side. good all rounder. you'll probably like it.

    shape 8/10

    weight 7.5/10

    switches and buttons 7/10

    skates 8/10

    Good Value. Easy Set Up. Synapse 3.

    I bought this mouse with the dock when it went on sale for under 80 dollars. This was a gift for my brother and his first wireless mouse. I remember seeing his face when I had given him the package and how his eyes were filled with joy when he unboxed it. Afterwards, I made sure that the S/N of the mouse was XX2037 or above (There's a reddit post for that: "Know if your Razer Viper Ultimate is the "updated version"). You can find your S/N on the bottom of the mouse package box. After confirming that the mouse was indeed XX2037 or above, my brother set it up with his laptop. To get started, he plugged the USB to micro USB into the mouse itself. After the laptop registered this new device, a prompt for Razer Synapse 3 appeared on his laptop. After downloading, installing Synapse, and adjusting all the color options as well as disabling Mouse Button 5 and Mouse Button 4, he started to set it up wirelessly. He connected the charging dock with the laptop through the provided USB to micro USB port, placed it on his desk. Afterwards he opened the compartment underneath the mouse to find the wireless dongle to plug into the charging dock. There, the mouse was fully set up.

    -First installing Synapse, his mouse percentage was 78%.

    -He charges it every 5-6 days.

    -Mouse clicks are not mushy.

    -The dock syncs color with the mouse percentage level.

    -You need an account to use Razer Synapse.

    -Razer Synapse needs to run in the background to sync profile colors, key binds, etc.

    -Run Razer Synapse at startup to save time adjusting profiles.

    It's been a month since he received this mouse. He has noticed how light this mouse was compared to his old wired one. One thing he has noticed is how dusty the dock tends to get so make sure you clean it often. In conclusion, it's reliable mouse for the price we bought it for.

    Best Pink Mouse I've Ever Owned!

    Its lightweight, its pink and it has customizable RGB lightings that you can change in the Razer Synapse app once you plug in your mouse to your PC/laptop. I love this mouse, I had the black Mamba Wireless and I thought I had the best mouse until I tried to play some FPS games the mouse would not slide across my mouse pad smoothly. Read some reviews about this mouse and was so excited to purchase this! Gaming has been such a better experience with this.

    No lag, no wires, lightweight, nice features

    Very nice and light wireless mouse. This is gaming ready. Loving the subtle design and LED. Doesn't look like it belongs to a kid. Nice clicks right and left. Good skates on the bottom. The charging stand is nice but not necessary. Maybe would have preferred a cost saving option without the charging stand. Can play wired or wireless. Battery literally lasts forever. As good as you can expect anyway. The cable that comes with the mouse is pretty decent. Not as good as coolermaster's MM710. (I love that mouse)

    A few cons for me. I don't like the navigation buttons on both sides, or the placement in general. Easy to make accidental clicks. Really has been a deal breaker on making this my main gaming mouse. Front micro USB could have been type C for the price and another negative...the price, but you know. Also, the center wheel leaves a lot to be desired. The spikey knobbies are not comfortable, and it is mushy feeling to roll, not clicky. It does have a slight click, but not much. And the roll amount seems too low.

    I would like the mouse shorter with more of a hump on the back, I would say this shape is more for finger tip grip. It is a small mouse light mouse.

    Great Value. Very Light. V2 Switches.

    Got the Mercury version and the dock for 89.99 when it went on sale. I have to tell you what a steal that is. The mouse comes with a 2-year warranty from Razer. I’m guessing that also includes the dock. Setting up the mouse was simple, connect the USB to micro USB cable from your pc to the mouse. After registering the drivers, a prompt for Razer Synapse 3 appeared and all you have to do is download and install it. Register or login with your Razer account and start making mouse profiles. One thing I really don’t like about the software is how it NEEDS to run in the background for your mouse profiles to save. If you accidentally close out of it, your mouse will act like a brand new one. Thus, make sure you have Synapse run during the startup of your pc and leave it until you turn it off. After I had set up the mouse wired, I took out the wireless dongle using my thumb from under the mouse. I unplugged the micro-USB cable from the mouse and plugged it into the charging dock, afterwards I plugged in the wireless dongle and placed the mouse on top of the dock to sync. It was now ready for wireless play. Works really well and I don’t regret spending the extra ~11 dollars for the Mercury version over the default black one. I chose the Mercury version because I wanted to make sure I had a 100% chance in getting the V2 switches. You can look up comparisons between V1 and V2, V1 switches are essentially more mushy and they can cause creaking noises when clicking the mouse buttons. To conclude, this mouse offers good value with how much you’re paying for.

    -When trying to plug in the dock using the micro-USB cable, I had difficulties with plugging it all the way in. At first I thought the dock was unresponsive until I jammed the cable into the dock. So make sure you have the cable all the way in before you worry!

    -White gets visibly dirtier than the black version of the mouse which means more cleaning.

    -Mouse is very light.

    -Dock sits on the desk after it’s plugged in.

    (Check out the review my brother and I wrote for the black version.)

    My favorite Razer mouse ever!

    This mouse is incredibly light but more importantly, it is built very sturdily! It feels like it would survive a nuclear blast (as compared to every other Razer mouse I own). If you have medium to large hands, this mouse is great to claw grip, the buttons are perfectly positioned, and battery life is insane for the weight. If you use low DPI, the new sensor on this mouse is incredible for tracking. I am honestly in awe, I did not expect it to be as nice as it is. As far as ergonomics go, I have tremors and dystrophy in my limbs and the Viper, even with its non ergonomic and ambidextrous design, still feels better when gaming than most ergonomic mice. I really can’t recommend this mouse enough.

    I bought this mouse during a sale for $120 and I would definitely say that it is an amazing price for the mouse and the docking station that comes with it.

    I also bought the Razer Basilisk Ultimate to compare and I can say that this is a more natural and simplistic feel to it compared to that one. When playing Modern Warfare online, you won’t have any misclicks or double clicks with this one, unlike the Basilisk. It feels like have the weight of my Naga Chroma (to compare) and fits inside a mouse pouch easily. If you are looking for a mouse that is similar to the Logitech G Pro, this is one to get! I love it much more than my Logitech mice (hate their software but I love that they last forever).

    G502 Lightspeed w/PowerPlay Gaming Pad

    Highlights:

    This mouse is fast, precise, comfortable, and has great aesthetics. Powerful software. Great hardware! Compact, portable design. Wireless or wired operation. Wireless charging with the addition of the PowerPlay gaming mouse pad. Lighting is simple but aesthetically pleasing. Aggressive looking. The downside includes confusing G Hub software interface and difficult to find documentation. I chose to get the matching PowerPlay mouse pad due to the wireless charging and the swappable fabric and hard surface mouse pad options. Please read on for my full review.

    Setup:

    I first setup the PowerPlay mouse pad. The transmitter is built into the mouse pad. The transmitter connects to the computer via a single USB cable. The G502 has a 1 3/8 Inch diameter cover on the bottom of the mouse that is interchangeable with the optional wireless charging puck that comes with the PowerPlay mouse pad. This puck also hides a compartment keeps the usb wireless transmitter safe when you are not using it. You will not need the USB adapter when connected to the PowerPlay. It is a great place to store the USB wireless adapter when not in use. The puck is held in place with magnets. This keeps the USB adapter nice and safe. It also holds the cover firmly in place. Swapping out the covers is very easy.

    The PowerPlay instantly turned on when I turned on the computer. I turned on the G502 using the on/off switch located on the bottom of the mouse. The PowerPlay and G502 instantly connected. However, this convince did come with an interesting challenge.

    I found that I was unable to use the USB wireless adapter with any of my laptops. After some experimentation, I found that the G502 and PowerPlay maintained connection regardless of distance and power status of my gaming computer. I had to turn cut off all power to my computer before I could use the G502 wirelessly with another computer. My computer continues to power USB devices while in soft power down mode. This is so I can charge my cell phone or wireless equipment when not using the computer. I was shocked by the transmission range of both products. I was over 20 feet away from the device and on another floor and still had a connection. I am glad I found a work around. It would have been nice if there was a KB article about this.

    This will not be an issue for you if you purchase the G502 Lightspeed by itself. This proved to be a minor issue easily overcome by modifying my behavior. Go green and turn off your PC! The good news is that you now know the work around if you find yourself in a similar situation.

    Documentation:

    The included documentation for the G502 Lightspeed is laughably slim. There is a small foldout pictorial showing how to setup the G502 for the first time. There is also a pictorial showing the placement for the weights inside the mouse’s two compartments. I was surprised that there were no instructions to download the Logitech G Hub from Logitech’s website. Maybe I missed it?

    The PowerPlay suffered a similar documentation drought. I can forgive this oversite with the PowerPlay. It is ridiculously easy to setup. Pictorials is really all you need.

    The Logitech G Hub is another matter entirely. Logitech really makes you search for the G Hub Manual. I did find it. The Logitech G Hub is very powerful. I have been looking through the software for three days and still feel overwhelmed with the customization options. I can do anything I want with any button except for the scroll wheel lock button. Every other button seems fair game. And then, Logitech dropped the ball by hiding the user’s guide deep in the G Hub’s interface. Why Logitech? Please tell me why!? The manual looks well written and thought out. It is also written in multiple Languages. This is the meat and potatoes of your unifying API for your gaming products! It should be front and center in huge blinking red font on the home page of G Hub! Logitech should be proud of this.

    Comfort:

    The mouse feels good in my hand. Each button has a short travel distance between pressed and depressed. It takes very little effort to activate every button. I like that the two buttons to the left of the left mouse button are sensitive enough that I can rock my finger over them to adjust the mouse sensitivity up and down. This way I do not have to lift my finger to make a DPI sensitivity adjustment. Small movements are best while in the heat of pixel armageddon. The scroll wheel has two modes, free and restrictive. As you can guess, free means the mouse wheel freely spins with nothing but friction to slow it down. There is a button behind the wheel that will engage a limiter of sorts. Engaging the limiter prevents the mouse from freely gliding and adds a nice audible and tactile click. I like this mode because it gives me better precision with the games I play. It is also my preferred mode for normal computing sessions such as work and web browsing.

    The mouse wheel also has a left and right button function. The left and right click are very sensitive. I mapped the mini-map function to the right-side wheel button and spent a game fighting with the in-game map constantly popping up. I then discovered that I clench my hand when in stressful situations. Time to unlearn some bad moussing habits.

    I also like the way the mouse glides along the fabric PowerPlay mousing surface. I did not like the hard surface cover that came with the PowerPlay. I find the fabric pad to be more comfortable for my play and work style. I think Logitech made a good choice by including both moussing covers.

    There is a button with a crosshairs symbol on it. This button instantly, and temporarily, sets the mouse to the lowest DPI you set for your profile. This is very helpful when sniping or other situations where precision is needed. I did not realize how useful this feature was until I had. I love it!

    Lighting:

    The G502 and the PowerPlay both have the iconic Logitech “G”. Both light up. I really do believe the lighting option is icing on the cake for an already attractive device. I do believe Logitech should have added more lighting. Maybe add an LED to the mouse wheel housing. The mouse does look great in a dark room. It also fits right in with my other lighted gaming gear. You can map lighting effects to each game you play and each application you use. Unfortunately, the learning curve to building profiles is unnecessarily steep.

    There is one unique lighting feature that I really like. The mouse has three battery LED indicators. These double as DPI indicators. The furthest forward position is the maximum DPI defined in your profile. The furthest rear position is for the lowest profile defined DPI. The lights in between represent the in-between DPI settings. All I need is a quick glance during a gaming session to tell me which DPI I am on. I have also been using it during my daily computer sessions. Super helpful feature. The battery LEDS also sync with the G Hub lighting. You do not have the ability to individually control each battery indicator LED.

    Software:

    The software is a mixed bag. I run into this with every manufacturer’s “unique” software suite. From 40,000 feet, this software is not intuitive at all. However, spend a little time with it, and you will see that this is a very power, feature rich software suite; almost overwhelming. The drag and drop feature for each mouse button is cool. I was able to quickly setup my most common keyboard commands in seconds. Best part, I can setup button commands for every game and application I use. Logitech has many popular windows commands pre-defined. So, if you want one button to CTRL+C for copy, and another for CTRL+V for paste, then just drag those commands from the menu to the mouse button you want to assign the commands too. No need to build your own macro.

    There is a dark side. It takes some real work, and patience, to decipher the G Hubs interface. I just happened upon the settings that allowed me to assign a profile to a game. Real pain. The documentation is also buried in the interface. Macros creation is setup as a wizard of sorts. You will perform a lot of trial and error before figuring it all out. The macro, once create, will be added to the Macro list for easy drop and drag onto a mouse button of your choice.

    Finally, the software will display the remaining battery level in the form of a percentage. The PowerPlay will charge the mouse during use. I found that the mouse will continue to discharge even while on the PowerPlay pad. Maybe I will get more moussing time than with the mouse’s battery alone. Only time will tell. The PowerPlay does charge the mouse when I am not using it. The G502 will also deactivate itself while not in use. The lights will remain on as long as it has a connection to the transmitter. Finally, the mouse will discharge faster with LED lights on. You do have the option to turn them off in the G Hub software.

    Final words:

    The mouse is awesome! The weights allow me to adjust the mouse weight to my liking. Great use of space. I can add the four 2-gram weights, the wireless USB adapter, and the PowerPlay adapter without adding any bulk to the mouse. I love the aggressive look of the mouse. And it feels great in my hand. The PowerPlay is icing on the cake. I have zero complains about it. Logitech does have some work ahead of it for the G Hub software. Logitech also needs to put the documentation front and center! Hopefully, they figure out how to streamline the interface, incorporate more hover help, and build some contextual help into each page. It would go a long way to make the powerful features of the G Hub more accessible to more than just the hardcore gamers.

    The legendary G502 untethered!

    I started my love affair with the G502 in 2016 with a Proteus Spectrum, and moved up recently to the Hero in 2018. While there are still plenty of miles left in that unit, it was impossible to pass up the opportunity to cut the literal cord...and the hype is real.

    There is zero sacrifice on the form factor that I came to know and love...it took some time to find my way into a mouse just right for me, I worked through a slew of other models that were too wide, too humped, buttons just not where I needed them, and when I found the 502, I hit jackpot. At the time, I felt like it would be a short term fix, as most companies move on to the next design, new ergonometrics, etc...but Logitech listened to the passion and held true to what it knew worked. It felt like an old friend, and that was good. Same 11 button availability, same tactile influences like the rubberized textured thumb grip and pinkie rest, same easily accessible DPI buttons for on-the-fly adjustments (as well as the snipe button to slow the action for the shot), same dual-action scroll wheel -soft clicks on rotation, or if you prefer, the infinity spin mode. While I am not overtly sensitive to the long standing dichotomy that wired is faster, I will say this...there is absolutely zero perceptible lag on this bad boy. I blind tested it adjacent to my 502 Hero, and I was flipping a coin on my choice...it was a guess. I couldn't identify wired against wireless while playing. If you at all fear that the convenience of wired gets you a perceptible advantage, forget it...that is a bet you would lose.

    One of the more interesting updates Logitech was able to achieve is that this surprisingly is a lighter mouse at only 114g, largely due to the revamped architecture on the inside that you don't see. Definitely a plus if you are following the latest trend in acquiring the lightest possible mouse (there are lighter models to be had at a lesser price, for sure...but this is a 502!), I happen to be an ardent fan of a mouse with presence and heft in my hand, and with the still-present removable bottom plate and loose weight plates included with the mouse, you can add back in up to an additional 16 grams to the assembly. While the wireless battery disc centered in the bottom mouse removes some area of weight-adding opportunity, it is also where this mouse, in all of its freedom and glory, really shines.

    This mouse advertises 60 hours of gameplay, and 48 if you use default RGBs (and who doesn't, as everyone knows that having RGBs add more precision to your shots and more damage to your kills), but pairing this mouse with the Powerplay wireless charging system is like having the infinity gauntlet, just without the gems. You have a wireless mouse, and you will never look at the charge percentage again. A very slick desktop unit with interchangable pads that is your charger. Mouse sits, mouse charges. Game over.

    This mouse (and the Powerplay charging pad) are not cheap gaming accessories, the price is fairly steep as far as mice go. There are plenty of wireless rodents that are also of great caliber, by industry leading brands, and that may exceed some one spec or another of this unit. This is the legendary G502. This is untethered. This really wasn't a question of if, it was really a question of when.

    A few quirks, but overall a solid gaming mouse

    The G502 wireless gaming mouse is everything it promises to be: it’s lightweight, comfortable in the hand, and is fully customizable from lighting effects to macro triggering on its 11 programmable buttons. If you’re a casual gamer like me and have never before invested in a gaming mouse with programmable functions for hotkeys, I have to say this mouse will probably be the single best thing you can buy to help you improve your gameplay skill and competitiveness. For a game like Fortnite, having all the build hotkeys at the tips of your fingers, literally, can give you an edge over your opponents. Even if you don’t play competitively, in single-player environments where your opponents are purely AI, you’ll have a slightly better speed advantage to take them out. The quick DPI adjustments and dedicated DPI shift buttons allow you to easily flow between fast moving character control and accurate/precise aiming in first-person shooters, for example when sniping.

    The mouse is amazingly sensitive and has accurate tracking, but I found that on soft mouse pads it tends to drag/scrape a little, so I prefer using a hard surface mouse pad with this mouse, where I didn’t notice this issue. The battery life with the default lighting settings is faithful to its 48 hour estimate, and I only need to plug it in to charge about once a week, since I use the mouse for work as well as play on weekdays. With the LED turned off you can get 8-10 extra hours out of it, but that kind of takes the fun out of having a gaming mouse. However, don’t lose the cable that comes with the mouse because it has a unique extra long microUSB connector so you can reach the port set deeply at the front of the mouse. You can also, if you choose, get the Logitech Powerplay gaming mouse pad which will continuously charge the G502 Lightspeed as long as you use the mouse on the pad. This eschews the need to ever plug it in to charge at all as you will have a constant trickle charge when using over the pad. The pad also takes the place of the wireless receiver, freeing up the one that comes with the mouse to use on a secondary device, like a laptop.

    While the mouse is lightweight at around 115 g, it’s still not the lightest wireless one out there, but at least feels lighter than many wired counterparts because you don’t have the cable hanging off the front. It does also come with 16 g of extra weights plates so you can fully customize your experience to what feels comfortable in your hand and for your style of gameplay. I prefer using the mouse without the weights, as I feel it gives me the most control.

    Now for the quirks and weird stuff. One thing that I found a bit finicky is the center click of the mouse wheel. Because there are 3 directional clicks for it: left, right, and straight down, sometimes when I press down on it, it registers as a left scroll wheel click. This may be due to the way I hold the mouse or uneven downward pressure which makes it lean slightly to one side. Maybe I need more time to get used to it to be more precise, but because the side clicking seems to be a bit more sensitive, it can result in a misfire of a command when the intent was to trigger a center click. I also found that sometimes the lighting settings will randomly shut off, so even though in Logitech G Hub shows that I have the lights still set to breathing, they’re clearly not on anymore, and I have to play with the settings to make them come on again. Not sure if this is a software issue caused by syncing with the Powerplay mousepad light settings.

    Another quirky thing is when setting up the key assignments in G Hub, while in the G-Shift settings, the mouse is set to use those settings live (without holding down the assigned G-Shift key) so if you overwrite “Primary Click” with a new action, this makes it impossible to continue using the mouse in this menu, as you’ve no longer a primary click function. The only way to reset the action is to use another mouse to undo the change. There’s also not an ideal button to use for G-shift because using any one of them will result in at least one awkward combination that can’t be performed one-handed (I’m using G6 which makes G4 and G5 nearly impossible to access with the same thumb). Ideally there would have been a button on the right that could be accessed with the pinky for this purpose. Note that the G502 is designed specifically for right-handed use.

    So far those have been my only complaints with the mouse, and they’re relatively minor points. Overall, the mouse works great though, and the endless scrolling is awesome if you do a lot of spreadsheet work. I also like that you can toggle it on/off to return to single line scrolling at the press of a button. There’s a lot to like in this mouse, but if this is your first time venturing into the realm of mice with more than 2-buttons and a scroll wheel there’s a bit of a learning curve to remember all the actions you’ve programmed into it! A small cost for the improvement in productivity and gameplay in my book.

    Great all around mouse

    I love the programmable buttons and RGB. I upgraded from the wired version of this mouse. The only difference is that the scroll is lighter and the mouse feels lighter. I prefer the scroll on the wired version but it is a pretty minor difference. Also you can use the mouse wired so you can charge it and use it at the same time.

    Best Mouse Ever!

    I like wireless mice but the batter would go low then I got a mouse on a rope again, so I thought why is it really worth it.

    Well I was browsing BB and found this from "LOGITECH" what? I like all their products they are reliable, but this was a gaming setup.

    So I gave it a shot.

    OH MY GOSH! I love this, I'm never going back.

    Worth Every Penny!

    Absolutely worth every penny. ive had plenty of wired and wireless mice including the corsair dark core wireless, dark core pro, nightsword, razer mice etc and nothing compares to this mouse. the ease of use through the software is awesome. There is almost no lift which is fantastic for FPS and its super responsive and the batter lasts for what seems like forever.

    Great hardware ... software is a nightmare

    Preface –

    I’d like to take moment and discuss some aspects of this Logitech – G502 Lightspeed Wireless Optical Gaming Mouse review that are directly related to the device but considered ‘ancillary” in the bigger scheme of things…

    My review package came with the Logitech Powerplay RGB, wireless charging enabled mouse pad. And due to the nature of where Logitech is moving with their products, you are now required to convert from the LGS (Logitech Gaming Software) to what is called the G Hub. G Hub provides device control, macro control and profile control. For the newest of hardware, you are required to install this software to initialize, maintain and control your gear. The problem is that this software is fraught with issues. I’ve attached photos below that directly effect the operation and control of the G502 Lightspeed mouse. I’ve confirmed that these issues occur with Windows 10 version 1809 and the newly released ‘Features’ May 2019 update, version 1903. Unless Logitech addresses issues with the software – that glues their new ecosystem all together – there is going to be some major blow-back from the consumer base.

    I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software several times and on different machines and Windows error events and device detection issues are easily replicated. There is also a good number of reports on the Logitech community forums that correspond to similar findings.

    With this out front, I still have a fair amount of info to cover with respect to the G502 Lightspeed mouse…

    Presentation -

    The G502 Lightspeed is physically well designed and although the numbering scheme seemed a bit perplexing at the beginning, I think I’ve come to understand why it is what it is. Coming from a G903 wireless mouse, it didn’t seem logical why this lower numbered offering even exists. But when you stop and consider the sensor upgrade plus the weight customization, and the fact that the G502 wired mouse is such a popular model – it all starts to make sense. Where the G903 is an ambidextrous design, the G502 is targeted towards right handed operation. With the G903, you forfeit the extra weight option to install the wireless ‘puck’ needed to interoperate with the Powerplay wireless/charging pad. On the G502, you do lose some of the tail end weight optimization in exchange for the wireless puck (disc) but you get to keep the option for loading (or not) weights located in centered compartment. That’s a big improvement/enhancement over the G903.

    Other than this, the overall ‘packaging’ is Apple-like and gamer oriented. No complaints there.

    Initial Setup -

    So here’s where it gets a little complicated.

    The G502 Lightspeed comes with a USB cable, so if one prefers, they can skip going wireless all together. You then have the option of running wirelessly by way of using the provided wireless dongle. When I tried to install the G502 Lightspeed using the USB cable, the prior version of G Hub didn’t recognize the presence of the device. When I switched to the wireless dongle – the results were exactly the same. I proceeded to check if there was an update for G Hub from the Logitech website and in fact there was. When I installed it, not only did the software still not recognize the presence of the G502 Lightspeed mouse – but all my profiles from my Logitech “G” Carbon keyboard and “G” gaming headset were discarded even though that installation process acknowledged the existing profiles and asked if I want to import them. So that’s a double-headed monster of failure. No device detected and profiles wiped through the installation process.

    I finally did a complete uninstall of the G Hub with Revo Utilities and upon reinstallation, the G502 Lightspeed was now recognized. Why? I am not sure. This is NOT how plug & play is supposed to work. Moreover, I’ve been using G Hub for my other Logitech devices pretty much without a hitch for 6+ months. So why this particular mouse is having ‘back end’ issues is beyond me.

    Two of the other pictures attached show the Windows error event that repeatedly and consistently occurs with the latest version of the G Hub software. These events are not tied specifically to the G502 Lightspeed mouse but are noteworthy in that G Hub is the glue that is supposed to keep the ‘ecosystem’ working together and the previous versions of G Hub don’t exhibit these malfunctions. So it’s really a Catch 22. You can’t skip using their software when you purchase this mouse – but you can’t rely on older versions that were essentially stable.

    Options disappear and reappear with no rhyme or reason – key features like enabling wireless charging to the G502 Lightspeed on the Powerplay mouse pad and enabling/disabling light features on the G502 Lightspeed itself come and go in the control panels.

    Something is seriously amiss with this software and ultimately highlighted by the one photo that reports the existence of “Back End Connection Problems”. I’ve not encountered this particular error message on any previous version of G Hub or LGS.

    Performance -

    Now that I’ve tried to cover the important software integration side of this product, I will move on to discuss the device performance exclusive of the software issues.

    The mouse feels well balanced, the range of adjustment to the overall weight from underneath is a big step-up from the G903 – even if you snap in the wireless charging puck. I believe most gamers sensitive to weight control will appreciate the flexibility of this mouse.

    Glide, surface precision and button feel are all outstanding on this device and perform equally to it’s wired counterparts and the G903. With all four weights installed, I personally feel that the tactile response of the G502 Lightspeed is superior to the G903 – no matter if I am gaming on cloth or a hard game pad surface. I’ve always like the G502 wired counterparts for their ergonomics and can see why Logitech went full wireless on this new release.

    From a purely hardware point of view vs. other products – it’s a good, customizable, high performance mouse. I also don’t get the increased DPI capability of this mouse because in my experience, pushing DPI response past 6200 results in a rather jumping environment.

    Summary -

    It’s hard to avoid the obvious here – but the software integration ruins the experience. I was considering yet hesitant to drive the overall score down to 1 or 2 stars because of it but have since decided that in all fairness – and with the hope that Logitech will resolve the G Hub software issues (which there are many to correct…) – I will award this product 3 stars due to all the compelling upgrade reasons covered in my ‘Performance’ section and due to the mere fact you can go around the software issues via installing, setting up your device, enabling the saving of the device settings to its internal memory and then uninstalling the G Hub... for the interim.

    Pros:

    Clean lines and a winning formula in terms of ergonomics.

    Well balanced footprint, with good range of weight customization – with & without the use of the wireless charging puck.

    The RGB lighting accents are targeted and not ‘over the top’ like many other RGB designs.

    Glide, surface precision and buttons all feel premium and perform like you’d expect from Logitech.

    The dedicated ‘step-down’ DPI button is great for sniping and I prefer the location of the button over that of the G903. YMMV

    Cons:

    First and foremost – unacceptably poor implementation of the G Hub software, starting from device installation, to the clobbering of prior profiles and subsequently with repeatably consistent Windows error events and glitchy option panels within the software – something is terribly amiss with this software.

    I did reach out to Logitech through the provided, product reviewer contact address but only received a response from their general technical support team a few days later. They didn’t provide any helpful information. No-what-I-expected…

    Definitely worth the money

    Cool RGB, great feel, loud clicks, fast response time, and additional buttons on the side which are great for gaming. The mouse performs as good as you would expect it to considering its price. Got it for $15 and it was a steal! Would recommend if your looking for cheap and effective mouse that looks epic.

    Your NEXT Replacement Mouse! BANG for BUCK

    INSTANT UPGRADE FOR YOUR ONLINE STUDENT TODAY!

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you an excellent replacement mouse and intro gaming mouse for anyone looking to buy a mouse! It an instant upgrade for anyone not already in the gamer mouse market. Short and sweet, the G203 is a well-built fully customizable 6 button gaming mouse in a traditional and familiar form factor people already know. It is essentially a G203 Prodigy with improved RGB lighting now using LIGHTSYNC. If you have other LIGHTSYNC devices, this will just play with the others so nicely. Whether you are a gamer or have an office/home PC, this should be a contender for everyone's first replacement mouse. The RGBs make it a nice addition to any boring setup in the office or home and it can compliment your already awesome RGB gaming rig until you are ready to unload on your highly anticipated future mouse purchase. Build is one of solid black plastic construction with precision tension springs on the primary mouse buttons making it built to last. The mouse wheel is rubberized/textured while the roll is "clicky" but can be set to smooth if you like.

    **Even during this Covid-19 pandemic, this mouse has done a cool thing for my old son during this transition to online schooling - bringing me to my next point. The G203 is more than capable as a mouse including children and adults alike. My 6 yr old son is now more excited to get his online classes done in the mornings during these interesting times for a Kindergartener. He gets to use a COOL mouse that "has colors" and just is thrilled to do "school work". We literally just plugged it in and you get RGB color cycling to brighten things up. The familiar ergonomics combined with modern design and ease of use makes this a serious option for anyone in this competitive budget space.**

    Now, for the techy stuff like specs. Here are my notable boxes this mouse checked for me:

    -Beautiful RGB lighting

    -Ergonomics, aesthetics, and build quality

    -8000 DPI sensor and 1000Hz polling rate fully customizable in GHUB software

    -6 remappable/customizable button entry level gaming mouse w/ Long manageable cord

    -GHUB Mouse Calibration/Customization

    GHUB Software takes this otherwise basic mouse to the next level. The gamer-grade sensor offers fully adjustable sensitivity from 200-8,000 DPI and you pick the right level that fits your task. Create up to 5 presets you can cycle through at the click of a button. The G203 has fully customizable lighting effects you can add that final touch to. This is easily worth the price with all you get in this one little package.

    Basically…. this is a buy. Remember, you can always try these things out then if you don't like it BestBuy has a return policy so no need to be worried. Be safe and stay healthy!

    Classic Look and Feel backed by Modern Software

    The G203 LIGHTSYNC is a budget friendly mouse with a classic look and feel, backed up by modern G HUB software. It is dubbed a gaming mouse, but it doesn’t scream gaming whatsoever. Yet it is able to hold its own on the gaming front and still be a great daily driver for those that split their time with work and play. And it is priced right as you get a lot of value here.

    A few main hardware points...the mouse houses an 8000 DPI sensor, has mouse buttons that provide that “click” feedback (they call it Mental Spring Button Tensioning) and a light bar that supports the LIGHTSYNC ecosystem. The mouse has a total of 6 buttons.

    Aside from the hardware, the biggest drive to this mouse is its software. It seems to be the norm for most peripherals as you can do many things to customize your experience with it.

    The Great: I thoroughly enjoy the mouse click feedback. That is probably my most favorite aspect of the mouse. The mouse tracks fine, all the way up to 8000 DPI, but I never go past 3000 for my gaming/work use. The light bar, used in conjunction with LIGHTSYNC , is pretty sweet. I like how I can make the RGB sync up to what’s showing on my screen. They are very bright lights. Truth be told, this only really makes a visual impact when you’re looking at your PC setup from a distance. If you’re actually using the mouse, you won’t notice anything.

    The Okay: It does have classic ergonomics, and it may be a deal breaker for those that are used to their modern ergo mouse. I felt that the mouse somewhat lacked contours for hand support, as I’m used to having a mouse fit in the palm of my hand. I also thought it would have been a plus to add another DPI button so that I don’t have to cycle through my settings just to get to my sensitivity of choice. I also felt that the G HUB lagged in reporting when I switched from DPI to DPI.

    Very responsive and accurate tracking

    I am strangely picky about mice. I can't stand Bluetooth mice because the latency, and the imperfect tracking drives me crazy. This mouse supports Bluetooth, but also supports its own proprietary wireless mode in conjunction with an included USB adapter. My last mouse was a razer pro click wireless, which supported these same modes, but it was white and didn't match my new PC setup. I tried the Logitech MX master 3, but I found it's wireless adapter mode to perform no better than Bluetooth (poorly), so ended up returning it. Unlike the MX master, this mouse performs excellent with its wireless adapter.

    Expensive but R&D and craftsmanship isnt cheap

    As an owner of the FinalMouse Ultralight, Logitech G Pro Wired, Roccat Kone Pure, etc etc- I have my fair share of experiences with mice. Despite it's high price point I was confident in my purchase given Logitech's stellar track record of hardware.

    What I opened once it arrived was a mouse that truly is setting a gold standard. The wireless technology is unmatched on the market, the buttons have a satisfying click to them, the RGB is minimal and not obnoxious, one if not the top sensor on the market and all bundled into 80 grams. An insane feat to achieve.

    I have a 20cm by 9.5cm hand size with a fingertip grip, the mouse is rated as a medium size so if you're looking for a large mouse, this may not be for you. It's also skinnier than the average mouse, perfect for me but maybe not for you. The best bet is to take the plunge when you see one and give it a few hours of use to decide. It's going to take a lot from the competitors to sway me away from this mouse!

    Lightweight - Super Fast

    I have been using the G Pro Wireless for about 2 weeks now. I have gamed with it, worked with it, and made it my daily driver for this time period to get a good feel for it. My normal work mouse is the Logitech M705 Marathon mouse (used for over 7 years now), and my original gaming mouse was a Logitech G602. I love wireless mice, and refuse to use wired because I hate dragging the cord around. That's what drew me to this mouse. The super fast Lightspeed transmitter really makes the difference, and I had no discernible input lag. I am also a sucker for RGB peripherals.

    When I first pulled the mouse out of the box I honestly didn't care for how it felt in my hands. The outer shell felt too smooth to me. The G602 has a textured outer shell and the M705 has a rubber coated shell. I had always preferred a textured/grippy outershell for any mouse I used. I got used to it pretty quickly, but it was off-putting at first (mostly due to callouses on my hands not feeling any grip). In the end I got used to the texture and had no problem gripping it - the shape of the mouse is really comfortable which helped. The next thing I noticed was how light this mouse is. 80 grams! My M705 is 135g and my G602 is a whopping 152g! Even my kids' little M325c weighs 93g, and its tiny! I never noticed how heavy my mice were until I started using this mouse. It's insane how light it is. Several of my gaming coworkers commented that it felt too light for them, so I let them drive it for a half hour each. When their half hour was up they were much more open to it, so maybe it converted them? The weight of the mouse just lets it become an extension of your hand vs. a paperweight you drag around. It really disappears, and the shape is ergonomically pleasing.

    Most of my time was spent using it for work - I spend 8+ hours a day at my work computer doing 3D CAD modeling, as well as CorelDraw, and database work. These last few weeks I have been churning out a lot of new models and drawings, so I have been clicking and moving this mouse around like a madman. In my past experience with my M705 I would experience wrist and index finger fatigue from this level of activity. I didn't feel that at all with the G Pro Wireless (GPW). The lightweight (80g) body of the mouse just kind of melted away and made it easy for rapid movements around my model. The LMB click weight is also super light, and vastly more responsive than my M705 and G602. I can honestly say that I have gotten finger cramps in the past from working like this, but the GPW never left my finger feeling strained. My only complaint for office work is the lack of Hyper-Fast Scrolling that my M705 has. That is a super handy feature when doing database work, but I know the weight of the Hyper-Fast wheel is a penalty for a mouse trying to be as ultralight as possible.

    For my time spent gaming I played Far Cry 5 and Overwatch. FC5 doesn't necessarily need an ultralight high-speed mouse, but I wanted to play it the last few nights ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. The jump from my G602 to the GPW was dramatic. My god the weight savings were so beneficial - being able to easily flick the mouse with no effort was awesome. The Hero sensor is so much more accurate than the sensor in my G602. I always had trouble being consistent with my shots using the G602. I can tell my accuracy has been sharpened with the Hero sensor. I can run at a higher sensitivity now, and still be accurate whereas before I would find myself overshooting my onscreen target. That lightweight LMB click was so crisp in comparison to the G602, that I got back into using McCree for my hero for the first time in a while. I found it difficult to use the right-side rear button in practice (I'm right handed btw), so I swapped out the button for the 'flush' mount button. It was pretty easy to setup a game profile in the Logitech Gaming Software, so I assigned the side buttons (and disabled the one I swapped out) for my Overwatch profile. PC gaming stuff isn't supposed to be this easy to work with, but here I am happily playing my games with a new mouse without a care in the world.

    For my gaming sessions I picked up the Logitech Powerplay mouse pad that wirelessly charges the mouse. I played games with and without the wireless charging weight, so I could get a accurate impression of its effect. The wireless charging disk on the bottom of the mouse adds about 10g - still a svelte 90g for the whole mouse. After a couple of hours playing with and without, I honestly couldn't tell much of a difference. The extra weight barely registered on my performance in Overwatch. I did fiddle with my DPI settings to account for the change in weight, which I think softened its effect on my games. Also, the RGB on the mouse syncs with the RGB of the pad - very nice.

    Overall, I am really enjoying the G Pro Wireless. The only drawback I found was the lack of Hyper-Fast Scrolling (like in the G903), but I can get over that because there are several great features that make up for it. If you are a serious gamer with equally serious reservations about wireless, I would say that the GPW can assuage those fears. Good luck and happy gaming!

    Great but not worth $150

    This mouse is the lightest mouse I've ever held. So if you are looking for a light mouse, this is it. About how fast it responds, well, I don't notice a lag, but I didn't notice a lag with some cheaper wireless mice. But I'm assuming it's doing its job because this is Logitech and I doubt they would lie about its speed. The reason I didn't give this mouse 5 stars is because I don't think the price is justified in the mouse for the following reasons:

    (1) Button Placement. This mouse only has two side buttons on each side, and they are placed in positions that I didn't find comfortable (I was used to playing with a mouse that had 12 buttons on the side that were in much easier to reach places). If you are used to the positions on these buttons based on previous mice you have used, then this shouldn’t be a problem. But as for me, it really hurt my hand to get my thumb to move to those positions. I'm now proficient at it after 2 months of using it and it no longer hurts.

    (2) Accuracy. I didn’t notice a difference between this mouse and other mice that are much cheaper, with regard to their accuracy. Maybe I'm not pro enough to evaluate this mouse in this regard. I am only rated 3400 SR in Overwatch (Diamond), I've never been to Masters or Grand Masters. Maybe one of them should write a review in regards to its accuracy, because as for me, I don't notice a difference. All this talk about a 16K accurate sensor, it might be that accurate, but I can’t tell it apart from cheaper mice.

    (3) Don't get tricked! This mouse is reported to have a 1ms response rate, which is on par with wired speeds, but what they don't tell you is that the reason it has 1ms response rate is because they have a USB extender attached to the wireless receiver, that you must place within 20 cm of your mouse to achieve those speeds (about 8 inches). To be honest, that kind of defeats the purpose of having a wireless mouse. Also, the booklet does not go into detail about whether the front of the mouse must be within 8 inches, or the whole mouse has to be within 8 inches (I provided pictures so you can see what that looks like). Based off the drawing, it seems like only the front of the mouse has to be within 8 inches, which in this case, is actually not that bad if you are already used to playing on medium sized mouse pads. I am one of the few gamers who needs an XL gaming pad due how spread out my arms are when I game. But, if you think you can keep all your mouse movements within 8in of the wireless receiver, then this shouldn’t pose a problem. I just don't like that they hid this fact in their promotion of the mouse. Seems a little deceptive.

    All in all, I decided to keep the mouse because I really hate wired and because I have the cash to burn. But I don’t think a lot of gamers think $150 is burnable money on a mouse, so in that regard, I don’t think the price is justified in the tech specs. As a result, I only give this 4/5 stars.

    G Pro Wireless is my HERO

    Logitech - G PRO HERO Wireless Gaming Mouse

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ***** The Review *****

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse contains one of the best sensors yet it doesn’t scream “gaming”. It’s an extremely stripped down design that was made to perform, but don’t be fooled; the mouse is definitely not fragile. The mouse is incredibly light (80G). When I say light, I literally mean light. If you’ve ever held one of those Scotch Shipping tape rolls (the red plastic one), the mouse is just a little bit heavier than that. I guess it ultimately depends on your preference. For me personally, I do enjoy using a lighter mouse since I play with pretty low sensitivity on FPS games. So if ever need to do those sudden “flick” shots, you won’t have any problem doing that with the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse.

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is quite small. It’s not so small that it’s uncomfortable or anything though. Whether you’re a palm or claw grip user, I think you'll find the mouse still comfortable; even during long gaming sessions.

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse sports a top of the line sensor while remaining subtle with it’s simple yet beautiful barebone design. The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse contains the HERO 16K sensor made by Logitech. Lets just put it this way, I had 0 issues getting headshots in competitive FPS games. If you’re not into FPS and need it for something like Starcraft 2, you won’t have any problems gliding across your mousepad with the G Pro Wireless. The HERO 16K sensor gives you the ability to adjust your DPI from 100 ~ 16,000 and does not have any smoothing, filtering, or acceleration. The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse was made to be perfectly ambidextrous. You have your standard left click button, right click button, and a clickable scroll wheel. With the G Pro Wireless, you’ll find thumb buttons on either side of the mouse. So this means it’s perfect for either right or left hand users. With the G Pro Wireless, you also have the option to swap out the thumb buttons so that it’s “tailored” to either right or left handed users. Another personal preference mentioned here is the DPI switch. Instead of being on top of the mouse like other traditional gaming mice, it’s located on the bottom. I personally don’t have a problem with this because depending on which game I am going to launch, I’ll have my DPI setting adjusted prior to gaming anyways. I like this better as there have been times where I accidently change my DPI while shooting on other mice. Speaking of the underbelly of the mouse, it also has a storage compartment for the USB dongle. If you already own the Logitech Powerplay or want to purchase it (Logitech’s Charing Mouse Pad), the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is also compatible with that.

    The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse by Logitech also utilizes the traditional Logitech Gaming Software or the newer Logitech software called Logitech G Hub. This is where “preference” comes into play again; you can use either or. With the software from Logitech, it allows you to to customize DPI levels, set up macros, and control RGB lighting (along with other neat features). Adjusting the lighting allows you to control the G logo, the palm area of the mouse, and the 3 DPI indicator lights on the top of the mouse. Logitech states that the mouse can last on an estimated time of 40 ~ 50 hours on one single charge (dependant on different lighting profiles though of course). For whatever reason if you forget to charge your G Pro Wireless Mouse, you can always simply just plug it in with the included long braided cable.

    The bottom line is if you decide to purchase the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse; you will be rocking an incredibly light mouse that is wireless, sports one of the best sensors (HERO) out there made by Logitech, and is a mouse that you won’t be afraid to whip out and use in public with it’s beautiful yet elegant and simple design. I personally don’t have any cons to note for this gaming peripheral. Everyone out there knows that if you’re a hardcore PC gamer, not only do you need a high end gaming PC; you deserve high end gaming peripherals as well. The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse does not disappoint.

    Amazing mouse for $50

    Picked this mouse up about week ago, but I've probably clocked 30 hours with the new season of CoD and updated Warzone map. I've been using the Razer Viper Ultimate for a while now, and I just wanted something else to mix it up. I'm just going to get to it, and say the Pulsefire Haste is amazing. Switches on it are more tactile than my viper, so you get nice crispy clicks. I like the side buttons more on this the Viper, because they protrude a little bit more, however they require a little more force. I think both mice similar scroll wheels with the Viper having slightly more tension, and on the Haste it requires more force to press down. Build quality feels solid, has PTFE feet on it, and it's 10+ grams lighter than my Viper. This reminds a lot of the Glorious Model O, which I also have, but the Haste has better build quality, switches, and scroll wheel. Overall, I'm super impressed with this mouse, and at $50 I'm not sure you'll find a better a mouse. I should also note I have medium/large hands, and I claw grip my mouse. If you're looking for somethings smaller than I would say look at the Viper mini, which is similar in cost and people love.

    Lightweight “Budget” Gaming Mouse

    I was recently in the market for a new gaming mouse, and immediately saw the Pulsefire Haste as a tantalizing prospect because of its ultra-light 59 gram weight. Despite its minimal weight, there is absolutely no compromise in build quality. At all. It’s cable is also fantastic, and on par with paracord mouse cables. Unless you have the budget to purchase high-end mice like the GPX Superlight, or Viper Ultimate, I wholeheartedly recommend this mouse, it’s just such a fantastic budget efficient mouse. Phenomenal Job HyperX!

    Great mouse

    Really light, just like what was intended. The holes sort of help your hand breathe so if you get hand sweat, that’ll help. Also, comes with rubber grips in the box that are optional to apply to the mouse for extra grip, slightly hard to align it perfectly but nothing has to be perfect. Some customization also with the HyperX NGENUITY app for PC with custom DPI settings, lighting modes, and key binds. Love this mouse, would recommend.

    Accurate and Excellently Weighted

    KEY FEATURES

    Fully Customizable

    26000 dpi Resolution

    Up to 1000Hz Polling

    INITIAL SET-UP AND CONFIGURATION

    My opinions of the Razer Synapse software stated in my review of the Huntsman keyboard carryover to the Basilisk mouse. I won't rehash all the details, but I do not like the Synapse software. Like the keyboard, the freshly downloaded Synapse software would not recognize the Basilisk mouse without first downloading a 100+MB software update. Additionally, Windows 10 did not recognize the device after plugging it in either. So initial set-up is definitely WAY MORE cumbersome than most any other mouse on the market.

    USE AND PERFORMANCE

    The mouse is great! It is weighted perfectly and glides smoothly and precisely. The mouse has a premium texture and feel about it. The left and right buttons have the same odd texture that the new Huntsman keyboard has. Like the keyboard, it feels odd at first, but after a couple of minutes, you wonder why other mice don't have the same texture.

    The Synapse software allows for full customization of the mouse. Buttons, Macros, sensitivity, scrolling, precision, it is all there and fully adjustable to your liking. Similar to Razer's other products, the lighting is bright and vibrant. The colors are rich and true, unlike some other manufacturers' products that tend to look dull and washed out. One unique feature that is a gimmick, but I find thoroughly enjoyable is the LED strip a the bottom of the mouse. It is recessed just enough that it makes the mouse appear like it is levitating on the mousepad. Cool!

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    It's hard to write a huge amount about a mouse. But final thoughts are that I seriously doubt anyone would be disappointed. It is a precise and well-made piece of hardware that manages to satisfy what gamers' want as well as what business and casual users need.

    If you are already invested in the Razer infrastructure and in need of a new mouse, this should be a no-brainer. If you are not already invested, but need a mouse and have been curious about Razer's qualities, you won't be disappointed and may very well win you over to their universe.

    Like my review of other Razer products, this is a 5 star mouse hampered by 3 star software. I don't see how this mouse wouldn't serve any buyer well.

    An easy to use colorful gaming mouse

    I’ve been bouncing back and forth between a small wireless mouse and a trackpad for a long time now. So, switching over to a wired gaming mouse was an intriguing opportunity. The mouse is very lightweight and easy to move around. My main computer is a Mac and I didn’t have any issues with connecting it for use.

    The packaging is simple and well defined. I’ve seen a lot of mouses have poorly designed retail boxes, but this one is hard to miss and you can easily identify the mouse as the Razer Basilisk V3. If you have a machine that uses Windows 10 or higher, you can take full advantage of the programmable mouse buttons alongside the Razer Cortex software. The form of the mouse is great and it fits most hands. The scroll wheel can switch between smooth and clicky. I’ve had this feature for a while with my wireless mouse so it was a welcome addition to this model.

    I didn't have any issues with moving the mouse around on my XL mouse/desk pad. The mouse is very comfortable use and the placement of the buttons is great. The shape/design of the mouse is also very aesthetically pleasing. It just looks really cool. I love that it has RGB lights built in. They are bright and colorful. I don’t usually like wired mouses because the wire clutters up my desktop. The cable on this mouse is lightweight and honestly, I haven’t noticed it much. I don’t feel tethered to anything like I usually do when I am using a wired mouse.

    The mouse is a quality product and incredibly solid in nature. It’s easy to use for gaming as well as standard operating procedures.

    Responsive and light

    Pros

    Relatively light

    Cord isn’t even noticeable

    5 profiles can be stored onboard

    Notched and free spin wheel

    Cons

    No glide

    pad on the right side of mouse

    Design

    At first glance, you would be forgiven if you thought the Basilisk V3 was a V2. Externally the changes are subtle. The trigger button is not fixed in place, not removable, and is shorter. A light now surrounds the base which causes the base to glow. Underneath, the control to switch from notched scrolling to free spin is gone and has been replaced with a software control of the mode. Also, underneath is a profile switch button as it can now store up to 5 profiles directly into onboard storage.

    Setup and Performance

    While not the lightest mouse available, the Basilisk feels light and comfortable in the hand. It is very flickable and switch activation is fast without being so touchy as to allow accidental activation. The Speedflex cable seems unnoticeable and thankfully doesn’t seem to snag on anything. It feel as though it were a wireless mouse. Quick movements are precise with no perceptible lag over overshoot.

    At first glance, the most noticeable change over the previous generation is the lighting. However, the most significant change is the scroll wheel. You can change from natural scrolling to notched scrolling using a button on the top, but the control is electronic. This means you can also control it through software and via game profiles. You can also a setting where you have the wheel change modes based on speed. Go slow and it is in notched mode but speed up enough and it becomes free spinning. It seems like a nice idea but the transition between modes is abrupt and somewhat odd as you hear it click and feel it change feel during operation. This possibly is a feature that you can get accustomed to, but for now it’s interesting but odd. Most people would likely choose to set it in the preferred mode manually or use the profile switch option as it is more seamless. Where is really comes in handy is in profiles. Do you like the wheel to scroll freely outside of games but need finer control in game? Just set your game profile for notched movement of the wheel. When you fire up the game it will automatically switch modes on the wheel. Once you exit, it switches back to free spinning all on its own. The buttons feel consistent and activate almost exactly at the same moment you hear and feel the click, possibly just slightly before. The pressure required is well weighted, not overly sensitive nor too hard. If there was any criticism of the design, it would be the glide pads. While having a large left pad and only a tiny pad around the sensor for the right works, it seems likely that down the wrong this could cause issues.

    With Razer Synapse you can map and change the function of each button and the scroll wheel. You can also create profiles that automatically switch between games. A nice additional is onboard profile storage. If you want to take your mouse with you, you can also store up to 5 profiles directly into the onboard storage on the mouse. You can switch between them using a profile switch on the bottom. This way you don’t have to have Synapse installed in every place you use the Basilisk. Just make to upload the profiles you need before you go.

    Final Thoughts

    It’s hard top find fault with the Razer Basilisk V3. It’s smooth, responsive, and feels comfortable. If you are in the market for a gaming mouse and are open to the idea of a wired one, its worth giving the Basilisk V3 a try. You might find yourself happy surprised you chose a wired.

    A serious mouse for serious gamers

    The Razer Basilisk V3 wired optical mouse is a terrific mouse for gamers. With 11 programmable buttons, you can not only make it work for you, but customize it for every game you play. My first recommendation is to use the Razer software called Synapse. It allows you to make adjusts to the buttons and the RGB lighting, and you can create an account or login to your existing one, to save your settings. The Synapse software is used for a lot of Razer products, so if you also have a Razer keyboard, you can use the same program to adjust both devices.

    The software is also a good place to figure out what all those buttons do. In my case, my previous mice was simpler so I needed a little help. You can also use the Chroma Studio to sync the RGB colors with other lighting devices, including Philips Hue lightbulbs. Nanoleafs have been discontinued, but are still supported to some degree, at least for now, although it says July 2021.

    Out of the box, the mouse was a litte too fast for me, but one of the default buttons changes the DPI, so I could quickly switch to the perfect setting. The mouse feels very responsive and accurate, and it was a pleasure playing games with it. It does a great job at non-gaming tasks too, like browsing.

    I would argue that this is the most complete mouse on the market, in terms of functionality, at least for gamers. The scroll button in particular, is so much more useful than a typical one, especially since you can go sideways, but also because of alternative smart scrolling settings.

    I found the Basilisk V3 to be comfortable after hours of use, which is important for extended gaming sessions. It’s wired, but as long as the cable is placed correctly, that shouldn’t be a concern, and it’s made out of a nice, soft material that doesn’t get stuck as easily as typical rubber cables. I’m glad it’s wired actually because it keeps the latency and connection in check.

    Judging by the feel of the material and continued use of buttons and wheel, this thing feels like it’s built to last a long time. This was my first Razer mouse, but it doesn’t look like it will be my last. The price seems pretty fair to me, considering the quality of the product. I have no harsh criticisms for this mouse, at least not after a few days of use, so I’m giving it two thumbs up.

    So fluid.

    You have to appreciate the plug and play ability of this mouse and all things supported by Razer’s Synapse desktop client. RGB has come a long way and the ease to set this up is highly appreciated. The software will automatically be offered for you to download when this is plugged into your computer if it is set to do so.

    It feels really light to the touch in operation. Not only does it look like it’s floating with the ring of LEDs active at the base, it feels like it as well. I also didn’t find that I was having an issue with accidental clicks because of how effortless it is to move. The cord is made of one of the lightest and softest cables I have ever tested on a mouse. It’s a lot like a shoelace and has no discernable drag on a desk surface. It may sound like an odd description, but it is an incredible design.

    One of my favorite settings that I found so far are on the scroll wheel. Changing the tactile spin in a program rather than a physical toggle on the mouse itself is an excellent weight saving design. The Smart-Reel option is perfect for getting to the end of a long web page or document. Every button is customizable. Run programs, enter text, change sensitivity, change profiles, run shortcuts, disable buttons, change lighting, etc. Even the profile button at the base of the mouse can be customized to do something you would otherwise not ever want to do with an accidental click.

    I’m sure most consumers of RGB products buy them for the looks. And this mouse absolutely delivers there. The absurdly easy integration with Wallpaper Engine is...legit. However, I encourage you to dive into Synapse and really look into how you can make your daily computing and gaming experience more efficient using the wide range of custom options it offers.

    Fantastic mouse for a fantastic price

    Great mouse! It is well priced and well designed. I love the RGB lighting. Synapse can customize the RGB lighting, DPI, surface calibration, and button mapping.

    The new scroll wheel is god tier. It's awesome and extremely satisfying. Razer totally nailed it!

    Pros:

    - lots of beautiful RGB lighting

    - well placed thumb buttons

    - free-spin scroll wheel works great

    - super comfortable in the hand

    - very flexible wire

    - the optical switches feel great and have a nice click noise

    Cons:

    - the "sniper" DPI button is a bit too mushy, I would have liked it to be more firm and clicky, a bit too much force to press it in my opinion

    - the scroll wheel is a little bit louder than my previous mouse, but it's not too bad after getting used to it

    - a little over 100g is a bit heavy, but it feels very familiar coming from my previous mouse

    - the two buttons below the scroll wheel (scroll wheel lock/unlock and DPI adjustment) can be a bit awkward to press sometimes

    - not fingertip grip friendly, palm grip is best. claw grip will be fine. small hands will feel awkward, medium and large hands will feel comfortable

    Overall, a very solid mouse and I'm loving it so far. I highly recommend trying it out!

    The limits of value and performance

    The right-handed ergonomic design and appearance is very clearly the Thunderbird family style. Its size is medium to large, its lines are round and natural, and its weight of 101 grams is much lighter than the G502. v3's two scroll wheel modes are very surprising, which is why there was a delay in switching to Thunderbird. The newly added RGB light band is very stunning, and it can bring users a more excellent lighting atmosphere performance.

    Great Value Mouse

    I personally love Hyperx products as I have owned a headset for about 6 years and it is in excellent condition, so when I was going to buy a mouse I knew where to find a quality product. This is my first mouse so I don’t have much to go on, but I have felt some of my friends mice and I much prefer mine. The buttons on the left side are very ergonomic for gaming while the two on top are less useful for quick actions as you need your index and middle finger on the two main buttons, they still have utility while gaming and I would recommend this product to anyone. I also have a hyperx mousepad that I really enjoy

    Great Mouse So Far!!

    Great mouse so far only in two or so days but definitely an upgrade my my 7 year old mouse. One thing that bothers me is that since it’s a school laptop and isn’t the best the mouse glitches but it’s purely because of the performance of my laptop.

    Good startup gaming bundle!

    This Razer bundle completes my gaming setup without hurting my pocket. What is included in this bundle:

    DeathAdder V2: US$69.99

    The mouse has an ergonomic and lightweight design, fits my grip, and is very comfortable. The mouse switch is optical (20K DPI), which uses light to transforms the light beam into a click. My gaming experience, besides my office work, was great using this Razer mouse as its responsiveness was apparent, Razer Synapse-enabled to customize Chroma lighting effects in addition to program buttons total of 8: scroll click, two side buttons, profile cycle button on the back of the mouse, right-click, scroll up, scroll down, sensitivity increase up/ decrease down. The scroll is tactile and feels good. Mouse cable is braided and durable.

    Mouse pad Gigantus V2 Size M: US$9.99

    The mouse pad is my favorite type which is made of cloth and textured that helps the mouse swipes like a fluid and the size that serves as a cushioning wrist rest. The back of the mouse is textured. I have a smooth keyboard tray, and this mousepad is placed firm and does not move or slip off.

    BlackShark V2 X: US$59.99

    This is a multi-platform that works with any device that has a 3.5mm audio jack. It is the midrange tier of the headset, so I wasn't expected anything special such as wireless functionality or hyperdense haptic. Nevertheless, it is very comfortable, and I can barely feel it is in my head—50 MM drivers with a clear voice and good noise cancellation. I have tried it for almost a week on my Pc as well as my Xbox Series X, and my friends said that my voice is super clear and noise is blocked out while I can listen to chat and game sound clearly with one caveat, 7.1 sound surround work on PC with Windows 10 64 bit only, BUT you need a 7.1 audio enhancer adaptor. However, I liked this headset much, and from my perspective, this headset provides everything at a competitive price while quality, comfort, multi-platform usability, clear mic, and noise-canceling are equipped. If you don't want to worry about charging and connectivity issues, then this headset is a good choice.

    Value-Focused Package for PC Gamers

    I'm a stickler for products that offer a great "price-to-performance ratio." If that was my only criteria for products, the Razer Battle Bundle would be perfect (assuming its on-sale price of $69.99 USD.) However, on closer inspection and with some use, the quality and ease of use of the bundle as a whole is brought into question.

    Overall: Great value at $69.99. Included peripherals are adequate if not above average. Aesthetics are classically oriented towards the gamer by Razer, but perhaps not too obnoxious for the office or home productivity user. I originally bought the bundle to be a mobile (laptop) peripheral kit, but the included mouse has become part of my permanent desktop setup.

    -DEATHADDER V2 Mouse-

    As a regular gamer who plays mostly competitive FPS's and has relatively large hands, the DeathAdder V2 has become my favorite mouse of all time. For almost 5 years I was accustomed to using the previous iteration, the DeathAdder V1, so I've been familiar with the feel and design of the mouse. The V2 is a welcome upgrade, featuring revamped button shapes on the top of the mouse, seemingly better durability (I cannot attest to long term use beyond 4 (four) months as of writing this review), and upgrades to the scroll wheel, grip tape, and cable. I never game above 800 DPI, but high-sens players will welcome its 20,000 DPI optical sensor, which has felt extremely precise. Combined with 100% PTFE feet, this mouse is designed for the competition. With such comfortable palmability, the DeathAdder V2 excels in longer session office and productivity applications, too. Of the three products that come in the Battle Bundle, the DeathAdder V2 is easily my favorite for its quality, shape, and features. Oh - let's not forget about it's fully customizable RGB, which can also be turned off in environments where it may be distracting.

    -BLACKSHARK V2 X-

    First and foremost, I am glasses user. I cannot see my computer screen in detail without my glasses. This is very important to this review, because, as a glasses wearer, the BlackShark V2 X just didn't make the cut as far as comfort goes. The muffs are too firm for me, causing the arms of my glasses to be pressed into my temple and under my ear. This becomes quite painful after around 30 minutes of use, and most gamers (including myself) will game for sessions upwards of an hour. The construction felt a little flimsy due to the thin wires, lack of tactile adjustment levels on the muffs, and some perceivable "plasticiness," but I cannot complain about an only-okay build quality for the on-sale price of the bundle. According to my Discord buddies, the microphone is clear enough, but not excellent. The headset is not lacking in features; I found the rotating volume nob and dedicated MUTE button both very useful and convenient. An included audio Y-split adapter may benefit some. The included carrying bag is helpful and fits the headset well, but the headset doesn't collapse enough to be an adequate travel piece. The BlackShark V2 X is definitely a shortfall of the bundle for a glasses user like myself, but I imagine they could be comfortable for a much longer period of time if glasses weren't in the equation. It is an acceptable headset, but I was disappointed with its build quality and glasses-compatibility.

    -GIGANTUS V2 M - BLACK-

    The thing is a mousepad. There isn't too much to say, other than that this is far superior to those old, plastic coated circular ones. In fact, the Gigantus V2 is above average in quality, with a nice smooth feel, good mouse glide, and welcomely minimal branding. For my case, it's compact enough to throw into a backpack for travel, but not too small to competitively play most games at low sensitivity.

    The Battle Bundle is definitely competitive and value-packed at its on-sale price of 69.99, but I cannot strongly recommend the bundle at its retail price of around $149.99 because of the somewhat lacking headset.

    Decent starter kit for the would-be hardcore gamer

    Bottom line: Razer put a pretty decent foot forward with this gamer-oriented starter kit--definitely a good value for what you get, especially if you can snag it while a sale is running.

    Blackshark Headset:

    I've run through several dozen gaming/virtual surround headsets over the years including some highly regarded staples of the gaming scene like the Astro A50, Hyper X Cloud II, Logitech G933, as well as my current stable of gaming cans that include the Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless & Arctis 7, Logitech G Pro X, and Audeze Mobius. I had tried and passed on the various Kraken models from Razer because of comfort and sound issues, but I was pretty jazzed about the Blackshark V2 X headset included in the Battle Bundle after auditioning the Blackshark V2 at an in-store display and marveling at the comfort and stellar sound quality from the demo soundtrack. On paper, the V2 X seemed like it might be even more compelling than the V2 by coming in 22g lighter while still supporting 7.1 virtual surround. But the devil is always in the details and there were a few aspects to my experience that ultimately let some of the wind out of my sails.

    First, the good stuff--the Blackshark V2 X really DOES sound quite wonderful--it's articulate, detailed, and pleasantly bass-heavy as most gaming headsets tend to be, but not overly so to the point where the bass became fatiguing and bloated like the Cloud IIs tended to be after extended listening. For music and multimedia playback, the Blackshark V2 X performed well above where its price point would have you expect, easily keeping pace with my Arctis Pro and Arctis 7 headsets--the Logitech G Pro sounded muffled and thin by comparison at the same hardware/volume settings. The V2 X doesn't come with a USB sound card so you are limited to the 3.5mm port and software/hardware capabilities of your computer/laptop; but that also means you can use the Blacksharks basically anywhere you can find a 3.5mm stereo or combo port without having to worry about an extra dongle. On-ear controls are simple with a push-button for muting the mic and a rotary volume dial--no fumbling in the dark for controls or complex push-and-hold button patterns to memorize. The headband is generously padded and pleather-covered for comfort--I didn't notice any hot spots at the top of my head even after extended gaming sessions. The thick foam earpads are a combination of pleather outer & inner-sidewalls with microfiber fabric for the part of the pad that actually touches your skin--this combination helps give a little boost to lower-end frequencies while not making your ears sweaty during use. The audio cable is non-detachable but modular; it features a combo 3.5mm stereo/mic plug at the end of the shorter 4-ft segment that snakes out of the left earcup, with a longer 5-ft extension cable providing dual 3.5mm breakout plugs at the end to accommodate separate headphone and mic jacks. The boom mic is also captive and features a removable foam windscreen; the boom itself retains its position very well regardless of orientation without a slow sag or recoil back to its original position. Razer rounds out the package with a very lightweight drawstring bag to keep it all together while on the go--it won't provide any protection, but it's a nice addition to keep everything organized when you're on the go.

    With so much going for it; what's not to like? First off, despite the fact that the V2 X is lighter than the pricier V2 X (they're the lightest pair of gaming headphones I own right now by a wide margin), and the headband was padded thickly enough to avoid any top-side hot spots, I still found them somewhat uncomfortable over time. The earpad openings aren't all that large, leading to a good deal of material pressing down on the outer folds/lobes of my ears. This is fairly common for gaming headsets and normally, by itself, isn't a deal-breaker. But even with their ultra-lightweight build, the inward clamping force exerted by the earpads was surprisingly high (I think in part because the curvature of metal headband is fairly unyielding), to the point where I couldn't wear the Blackshark V2 X for more than about 20-30 minutes at a time before my ears started to get really sore. Because ergonomics/anatomical fit is very personal, I HIGHLY encourage you to audition a set for yourself to see if this is even an issue for you. Second, mic quality was only okay--my teammates could hear me just fine, but my voice was often accompanied by metallic-sounding distortions that were easily audible in higher frequencies and at leading edges of my words. Finally, the V2 X only offers Razer's baseline 7.1 virtual surround sound solution...it's a separate application and to activate it, you must redeem a code that accompanies the headset, which means the effect is only available on PCs where you've installed the 7.1 client and logged in with your Razer ID. While that's true of many apps, this virtual surround solution isn't seamlessly integrated with Windows the way Windows Sonic, DTS Headphone X, or Dolby Atmos is--you have to select a separate virtual 7.1 playback device, then turn on the 7.1 surround processing using another app. The effect adds some noticeable depth to an otherwise flat soundfield--about on par with Windows Sonic--but it's not very expansive or pin-point accurate and falls WAY behind DTS or Dolby (or Audeze's Waves NX) in terms of immersion, panning effects/coherence, or discrete sound-source localization. You're encouraged to upgrade to the THX Spatial Audio app for "even greater immersion" and are offered a 50% code (at the time of this writing) to do so, but the downgrade in virtual surround capabilities was still a bit disappointing.

    Deathadder Mouse:

    Okay, so the headset was maybe a bit of a mixed bag...what about the Deathadder V2 wired mouse? Actually, I'm happy to report it's pretty darned good! The braided cable is 7 feet long and very pliable. The fabric covering (Razer's "Speedflex" braid) has a pretty tight weave which didn't seem to snag on errant hardware, other cables, or the furniture and was light enough to offer essentially zero resistance in use--coupled with the mouse body that clocks in at 82g on its own and mousing comfort easily approached that of using a high-quality, eSports-grade wireless mouse. I've pictured it below alongside my Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB and Logitech G Pro Wireless to give you a bit of a size comparison. The Deathadder V2 is slightly asymmetrical in shape with left-side indent to accommodate the thumb and thumb buttons, while the right side bulges outward just slightly to give the right-most fingers a more natural resting place. Ergonomics were stellar--I wear a men's size large in most gloves and I'm able to comfortably rest my whole hand on the mouse rather than having to claw or cup the mouse to keep it under control. In fact, the Deathadder V2 is slightly on the larger side which I think will work to most people's advantage. I had to move my hand forward slightly on the housing in order to comfortably reach the front-most thumb button without having to stretch during gameplay; but because the mouse is a bit larger anyway, I didn't have to constantly readjust my grip whenever I used one of the auxiliary thumb buttons (the other two programmable buttons are much smaller and sit beneath the scroll wheel--these aren't necessarily easy to press in the heat of battle). Bright LEDs illuminate the scroll wheel and a large Razer logo on the shell; lighting effects can be adjusted in Razer's Synapse 3 client though the scroll wheel and logo LED colors/effects cannot be set independently. A small button on the underside cycles through one of 5 profile memory slots where you can store multiple configurations/key assignments/macros to suit your needs. The optical sensor goes all the way up to a staggering 20,000 DPI--even on my 35" ultrawide, the slightest nudge at 20K DPI sent the mouse flying across the screen; but if you need that kind of ultra-fine precision, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything more capable at the moment.

    The only word of caution here is the Razer Synapse client itself--this is a separate download from the 7.1 virtual surround app that came with the headphones, but it's required to customize mouse buttons/functions, adjust optical sensitivity and polling, change lighting profiles, or calibrate mouse performance for a new surface. Even without installing the PC performance-tweaking Razer Cortex, or Chroma Studio for even more complex and cross-product lighting effects, the Synapse client had 8 separate processes consuming just under half a GIG of RAM running on my PC even at idle. Most serious gamers will probably have enough RAM to handle the extra load, but the additional overhead is worth noting for those of you who are constantly chasing down gremlins that might be robbing you of a few precious frames per second.

    Gigantus Mouse Mat:

    This could have easily been a throw-away pack-in, but the Razer mouse mat is actually a pretty fine bit of kit. The rubberized bottom keeps it firmly in place while the black fabric covering, coupled with the teflon glides on the bottom of the Deathadder, makes mousing smooth as glass. There's even a place in the Synapse client to calibrate the optical sensor/tracking specifically for the Gigantus V2 mat; and at 11"x14", a frantic FPS player would likely be hard-pressed to over-extend any mouse movements beyond the edges of the mat. About the only downside to the Gigantus is the black colorway--the fabric surface almost immediately starts showing dust and dander, but some regular TLC and quick shakes above a trashcan should keep it from turning a sickly white/gray over time. While maybe not an "essential" purchase in its own right, the Gigantus is actually a welcome addition to the Battle Bundle--and it certainly seems to elevate the performance of the Deathadder mouse even further.

    Great Starter Pack for Gamers

    There are a laundry list of great things about the Death Adder V2. The shape, the quality feet, the high-quality cord, 20K DPI, Razer optical switches, etc… The customizations, lighting effects and overall responsiveness are nice. My only really complaint is that it’s way too light for me. It helps with speed, especially on the Gigantus – but’s just lighter than I like to game with. It’s an entry level gaming mouse for sure but I would have loved some weight adjustment options.

    The Blackshark v2 is another great entry level gaming product. Cool look, comfortable design, nothing too flashy. Mute button and mic on the earcup. Sound quality is above average for the price and the mic is just okay. It too is a little on the light side and does end up feeling a little cheap. This might just be my perception of the weight because it really does feel well made – maybe just not the most high end materials.

    The Gigantus V2 is an overall good mouse pad. If you need a medium sized gaming mousepad and don’t want anything too flashy, this is a good choice. Good for gaming and office work. I’d like mine a little larger, but for what it is, no real complaints.

    Overall what an excellent kit to get you started in the world of gaming accessories. Razer has managed to pull off a good kit at an incredible price.

    An Excellent Start for a Gamer!

    The Razer Battle Bundle is a perfect name for this bundle, and with most gamers needing (or wanting) a great gaming mouse, a mouse pad, and a headset this seems like a worthy contender. If you’re at all curious about the use of Razer within the gaming community, all you need to do is launch any number of gaming streams to see Razer devices used across platforms.

    In the bundle, you’ll find the DeathAdder gaming mouse, the Gigantus mousepad, the BlackShark headset, and a splitter cable for use with separate mic input and speaker output. To get the most of your new DeathAdder, you’ll need to download and install the free Razer app to control the lighting, and to allow for integration into various 3rd party platforms.

    The DeathAdder mouse features 8 programmable buttons (when used with the Razer App), is lightweight, has a comfortable ergonomic design, and has a really flexible USB cable that moves smoothly during use. It should be noted that the mouse alone is usually priced around $70, and is an excellent addition to most gamer arsenals. If you program the 5 on board profiles, you can plug and play the mouse into any PC or Mac and keep your preferred settings for immediate use. The app allows you to even program macros, which can even be triggered by a specific app or game. This makes switching games easy, requiring fewer steps to enable your favorite button layout and macros for your game.

    If you’ve ever hit the edge of a mousepad while playing a fast paced FPS, or even during space combat, you know the pain of constant skips from the mouse falling off the edge. Razer provides a solution with the Gigantus. It’s a large mousepad, and as the name cleverly states, gives you a perfect surface area for your new DeathAdder to slide across. I play FPS, RPG, RTS, and space open sims with not one instance of a skip in movement due to an edge hit. It’s even made it easier to create and edit in graphic imaging apps like Photoshop. I absolutely love this mousepad, and can’t imagine ever buying a standard size one again. The top layer is a smooth cloth surface, while the bottom offers a bit of grip to keep from moving around, even during intense movements during FPS gameplay.

    The BlackShark headset is a great entry level gaming headset, and completes the Battle Bundle. The lightweight allows for longer periods of use, while the high quality drivers provide clearer sound compared to most unpowered headsets. The headset includes a volume dial, a spring loaded mute button, a flexible microphone for easy positioning, and an attached audio cable for microphone input and speaker output. While there isn’t any RGB lighting, the Razer badging and design is recognizable, and works incredibly well. If you’re using standard PC sound output and inputs, the included Y cable splits the microphone and speaker lines. Otherwise, you can plug this into any unified 3.5mm speaker jack from your gaming laptop or device. There is even an included storage case, made out of a nice soft fabric, to store the headset when not in use.

    Overall, this lives up to the Razer name, and with the excellent DeathAdder and Mousepad alone, this is a great purchase for those just getting into gaming, or someone wanting to upgrade from a more basic setup.

    Starter Bundle/Gift Pack

    When I received this, my first thought was that it would be even better with a keyboard. But, then I remembered just how different keyboards can be with the various sizes and key styles. So, if you were looking to get someone something that just got a computer or wanted something more than just a decent mouse, this fits the bill. This is essentially a starting pack for anyone that wants to play on a computer without too much flair.

    The headphones don’t have any fancy lighting or settings like some do, but they provide exactly what is needed. Decent sound quality, some noise isolation so you can focus on the game and clear voice communications. With the standard 3.5.mm jack you can use them on anything with a headphone jack. I've been using mine more on the Xbox than PC lately, and they work great. There is volume and microphone mute on the left earcup. The mute has no real feedback other than realizing it is depressed for mute. There is color exposed when it’s not muted, but it sits on the back side of the earphones and is something you can only notice when removed. It takes some getting used to as I usually have a wire based mute/volume that you can look at, but those configurations also tend to create feedback on voice comms for some reason. The microphone seems to have some pretty aggressive noise cancellation as well, as my friends claim they can’t hear me or my words break up unless it is really close to my mouth. A good thing to help keep out background sounds.

    The mouse is lightweight and comfortable to hold. It really makes it feel smooth when combined with the Gigantus V2 mouse pad, listed as M for medium, but this is fairly big. The mouse works great just plug and play, but the real features of the mouse are unlocked when you install the Razer Synapse software and get into customizing it. You can change the color patterns, change the 8 button functions around and make additional profiles, stored to the mouse, that can be swapped with a button on the bottom. You can also change the stages in which the DPI button switches through from a crawling low DPI to a blazing 20,000 that just felt impossible to control, it moves so fast.

    Overall this is a great combo pack. Whether you were looking for a mouse or headphones, we all enjoy getting a little refresh on gaming equipment and Razer seems to bring it every time.

    Sweet combo!

    I play a handful of PC games and am always looking for new accessories to “up” my “low” gameplay.

    In the combo pack, I got the BLACKSHARK V2 X headset, GIGANTUS V2 mouse pad and the DEATHADDER V2 mouse.

    I’ll highlight the things I like (Good) & am a bit skeptical about (Meh), for each piece of the kit.

    BLACKSHARK V2 X:

    I noticed pretty quickly that my ears became warm during an hour or so of continuous play. With only a short 3.5mm non-removable cable, distance was an immediate concern. To extend the cable, an audio/mic splitter is included, but you need to light up each 3.5mm port. To me, that’s silly and I used a DAC that I had from my Logitech G Pro X. While it doesn’t solve the short cable issue, it does allow me closer access, as I can use a front USB port and not have to string a long cable to the back of the tower.

    There are no ridges for the headphone height adjustments to fall into. While this can be good, as there’s a more accurate fit - it’s a bit of an issue as it constantly needs slight adjustments to fit properly after taking them off, hanging them, putting them back on and so on.

    GIGANTUS V2

    This medium sized pad is like glass. When combined with the DEATHADDER v2, it’s a seamless movement. Compare it to a whole-desk pad - this is insanely slick. Medium is noted as the size which is good - about 12x14 and encompasses the amount of space I need for FPS, which is my game of choice. Having an anti-slip grip is great as well, because I don’t like having to adjust the pad during play.

    DEATHADDER v2

    A wired mouse that feels bigger than I’m used to, coming from a G604; lighter is an understatement. But it’s not bigger, it’s just angled differently, but it’s much lighter. The G604 drops off at the left/right click while the DEATHADDER v2 extends out straighter; this took some getting used to and my wrist felt it. Whether the new grip or position, I found much better accuracy in my games and that was a welcoming change, as I’m normally trash. I do have to say however, having only two buttons on the left/inside of the mouse is limiting, I use four with my G604. Add a few more mappable buttons inside and this is a 110% winner. During gameplay, I felt that the clicks were instantaneous and that’s an expectation with any wired gaming mouse. Moving to a more claw-like click action lessened the wrist strain and increased reaction time; LOVE IT.

    Software:

    RAZER Synapse runs alongside every other RGB / DAC that you may have running on your PC. Allowing you to remap EVERY key is great and control over the RGBs helps for those that are pickier than me.

    TL;DR:

    Headphones:

    Good:

    No notches for sizing - more accurate fit

    Sound depth

    Single-side, on-headphone adjustments for volume & mute

    Sturdy microphone w/ foam windscreen (removable)

    Meh:

    No DAC - uses 3.5mm cable / 3.5mm splitter

    They look chintzy

    Slides easily, needs constant fitting adjustments

    Ears constantly warm, need an “air break”

    Mousepad:

    Good:

    Like glass

    Thickness

    Cleanly stitched label

    Non-skid base

    Meh:

    Nothing

    Mouse:

    Good:

    Smooth operation

    Light

    Lighting clicks - no delays

    Meh:

    Not enough side buttons for keymaps

    Software

    Great gaming starter combo pack

    Amazing all in one gaming combo. If you already have a gaming keyboard, all you need is this combo to complete your gaming gear and start fragging.

    This combo includes a gaming mouse mat, headphones/mic and a mouse.

    The mat is great, the top is a soft but sturdy cloth, where any mouse will glide effortlessly, the back side is a grippy kind of plastic material (feels more like polyurethane) which will grab your desk without moving for sure. It has a nice green accent on the edges (classic Razer green, I love it).

    The included mouse is Razer’s Death adder V2. I love this mouse. The RGB lightning is nice and not on your face. The buttons are sharp and can be all programmed using Razer’s Synapse 3 program. What I love about his mouse, is that this version now has onboard memory. Meaning you can save your settings to the mouse and if you take it to another PC/laptop your settings will be in it and there is no need to install Synapse again on that other PC. The mouse’s cable is braided and soft, it bends nicely.

    The headset is super comfy, they have put some soft of memory foam/gel on top (the curved part that goes over your head and feels amazing, even after several hours of gaming). The connections are basic, meaning there is a super long cable that ends on a minijack combo (all in one, just one connector), which you can use with a console or phone i.e. However, they also include an additional long cable, that adapts that lone minijack, to two separate ones, mainly for us PC users (one minijack for audio, the other for the mic). The cables are plastic but of a nice texture and I love the Razer green color. The cable is non removable though, the part that attaches to the headset is permanently there. Same for the mic. Now, I say the connections are basic because there is no included USB dac or USB sound card of some sort. You must plug the headset into your PC’s sound card. The headset itself has two controls, one for volume and another for muting the mic. The ear pads are extremely comfy, I think the same soft foam/gel that the top part has, they seal your ears in very nicely (it is a closed back headset). Sound is great and stereo. If you would like to have some sort of surround sound, you must use window’s sonic or Dolby atmos. Razer also has its own surround sound you can download for free (they also have a more premium, paid one, that has positional audio, kind of Atmos, it is called their THX solution).

    I highly recommend this combo to anyone that already has a gaming keyboard. You will be set to start fragging in a jiffy!

    REVIEW:

    I did not expect much at first due to the light weight of the Kone Pro Ultralight Gaming Mouse. I get that Ultralight is in the name. But the more I used it and the SWARM software to adjust settings, the more I realized there was a lot under the covers here. With only 2 lights under left/right buttons, the Kone Pro is not as flashy as some other gaming mice, but it has “it” where it counts. Super high DPI and nearly infinite controls to determine exactly how you want the mouse to respond in any given situations. Others have already posted pictures of the settings screens, which is really the star of the show (the flexibility).

    It has more of a “traditional” mouse shape with not as many ergonomic curves as some others. There is nothing wrong with this, just an observation in case it matters to you. One assumes if you are gaming with a mouse and keyboard the ergonomics is not necessarily at the top of your list. For every day business use, it might be and issue.

    It is highly accurate and functional for gaming use, and even has built in macros and features to help you more accurately hit your targets.

    I really like that you can control both horizontal as well as vertical speed. It makes sense to me (using an ultrawide monitor) that I don’t need to go as fast up/down as I do left/right to cover the same amount of screen real-estate. As I said, everything is infinitely programmable.

    A nice surprise was extra mouse pads (they call it feet) in case you wear out your existing pads.

    Another nice touch is the super soft and flexible wire. I never really thought about it before, but a heavy stiff mouse cord is probably slightly negatively impacting my gaming. You really can’t even tell this cord is attached. It is more like a thin soft rope than a cord.

    The Mode Selector is on the bottom. Again, this is personal preference. It just means that you can’t change the mode mid game without turning the mouse upside down. On the plus side, you also don’t bump it by accident as you would if it was on the top.

    Overall, I’m impressed with the ROCCAT - Kone Pro Wired Ultralight 19k DPI Optical Gaming Mouse. If I had some minor complaints, I would appreciate slightly more ergonomics to help center the hand and fingers. The side buttons feel a little cheap, and maybe they could use some tactile differentiation. One might want more flashier lighting, though this is nothing I care about. It is just either go all out, or not at all. You are not going to satisfy someone who likes a lot of bling. Though, as a I said, it very responsive and accurate in gaming situations.

    PRO’s

    - Very Lightweight

    - Great Software

    - Invisible Feeling Cord

    - Extra Pads

    SUMMARY / RECOMMENDATIONS

    The ROCCAT - Kone Pro Wired Ultralight 19k DPI Optical Gaming Mouse with RGB Lighting is worth a close look and consideration. If you want a mouse built like a tank that weighs like a tank, then you might consider something else, but if you really want a highly capable / flexible and lightweight mouse more than you want bling, this thing rocks.

    Light as a Feather, Quick as a Fox

    --- Installation---

    This mouse is plug and play. There is no software to install this mouse. Just plug in the USB to a USB port and you are ready in seconds. No software is needed to change DPI, as it can all be done with the mouse itself.

    --- FEATURES ---

    Extremely light weighing 66 grams, 19K DPI, RGB lightning, tidal wheel pro/switch, flex cable, heat treated glides.

    --- PERFORMANCE ---

    I tried this game with several FPS games including Overwatch, Apex Legends, Call of Duty, and Hunt: Showdown. In all games, the mouse movement was quick and responsive. Being a wired mouse, I didn’t detect any lag at all. The mouse buttons are clicky, like a clicky keyboard. The wheel also has a sturdy feel which makes it easy to know when you’ve scrolled enough to switch to the next weapon.

    --- EXPECTATIONS ---

    To be honest, as soon as I unboxed the mouse and picked it up, my hand moved further up than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised by the weight on this mouse. It feels extremely light and it’s hard to describe with words, but you’ll notice it especially if you carry your old mouse and the ROCCAT back to back. What I didn’t expect was the way that you change DPI, lightning, and lift off distance for the scrolling wheel. To do any of that without software, you hold the profile button below the mouse and the left mouse button for three seconds. At that point, the mouse will enter configuration mode and by scrolling the wheel you activate the DPI sensitivity, pressing the side buttons changes the polling rate, and clicking the wheel affects lift-off distance. It will take some getting used to, but once you set your mouse you’ll be ready to go. There is still software available for this mouse if you prefer doing that instead. The software is a free download and allows you to set up 5 profiles plus further customization.

    --- VALUE ---

    This is a great investment for gamers who want the competitive edge with a light mouse that translates to quick movements because there’s less friction.

    --- APPROVAL ---

    If you want that competitive edge in your video games or just a smoother experience, definitely give this mouse a try. The lightness of it will surprise you.

    Best Lightweight ergonomic mouse

    Avid Valorant fps gamer here. I own a ton of gaming mouse. Having a light mouse is important for flicking and easier on the wrists. My previous main was the legendary Roccat Burst Core mouse. My wrists started to hurt after a few games and especially when speed aiming on aimlabs. I moved over to the razer viper which is my current main but kept clicking the right side buttons. I thought I'd give this a shot as it is on sale. I'll try to give a detail and comparison to similar ergonomic mouse.

    The other ergonomic mouse include the coolermaster mm720, Kain 100/200, Logitech g403/703, razer basilisk. The Kone pro is lighter than all of these save for mm720. The mm720 just didn't have an accurate sensor. The other mice on the list were just too heavy for me, it felt like playing with a brick. I wish roccat would make a lightweight Kain 120 with optical switches.

    PROS

    The mice feet are better than 3rd party pads. They are perfectly rounded, glides like tiger arcs. They do not stick like corepads. Wish Roccat would sell these heat treated pads. They are supposed to be broken in with the heat. Love the fact they added an extra set in the box.

    Comfortable to use, the thumb rest really helps you stabilize your mouse form. Your thumb will not drag on mouse pad. You can clawgrip and fingertip this mouse, although finger just feels better on ambidextrous mouse. The lightweight makes it possible to figertip. Not recommended but definitely doable. I switch between clawgrip and figertip depending on the range of my shot in game.

    Software easy to use

    Cable is better than Roccat burst core.

    Accurate sensor, low click latency from optical switches

    CONS

    A little post travel on m1 and m2

    Some other people had issues with scroll wheel scrolling backwards at times.

    DPI button underneath- maybe done to lower the weight, not a deal breaker but I miss it from the burst core.

    Conclusion-

    It all about the lightweight comfort of this mouse. Seems like roccat make really original mouse designs, great engineering. They have really decent quality control. They are a little more pricier, but I've never regretted a purchase. Wait until they go on sale. They support their products with firmware updates. Please make a light weight Kain 300 with optical switches.

    Would give 5 stars but price a little too high.

    Light & Responsive, with the best cable EVER!

    This mouse is truly lightweight, buttery smooth, incredibly responsive, and includes the most amazing cable I have ever experienced! Seriously, the PhantomFlex cable honestly stole the show. Save your money and skip spending extra on a wireless mouse. The cable is so light and flexible that I forget it is there. And a wired connection is always better (no lag & saves on batteries).

    I don't believe that the shape or the ergonomics are anything to write home about. The product description brags that the design is the result of "14 years of devoted craftsmanship", but this goes unnoticed as the mouse feels to be a very standard design. The design is proven and works well, but it doesn't feel as though it is forged by a master craftsman.

    The mouse has a plethora of setting options and can be customized without any software, but honestly - this is a complete nightmare of holding multiple buttons then comparing LED colors to the features listed in the incredibly brief manual. There is absolutely no way that I will ever be able to remember how to change any specific setting. I completely recommend downloading the free software to set up the profile options.

    Over all this is a good, light weight mouse that I would recommend to the average user. But, if you are truly concerned about ergonomics, you may want to try a different style as there may be a layout / position that you find more comfortable.

    Smooth feel and stunning look

    Both my daughter and I use the same computer for school and work. When I am not at home, she uses the computer to play her favorite games (Minecraft and Roblox). At times, I noticed her eying her brother’s gaming computer set up in the other room, and wonders why she can’t use a gaming mouse and/or keyboard. Well, enter the ROCCAT Kone Pro gaming mouse.

    Just like the keyboard that we also picked up, the Kone Pro mouse is stunning to look at. The Arctic White looks amazing, matches well with our desktop, and the front tip of the mouse changes colors. It is extremely lightweight and feels great in the palm. I was amazed at how smooth this mouse was on both our mousepad and on the desk itself. Another pair of smooth plastic that attaches to the bottom of the mouse are included in the box.

    In usage, this mouse is very precise and fast. I didn’t need to adjust our mouse settings at all as I really love fast and responsive accessories. My daughter equally was impressed when she used it in both gaming and school work. The scrolling wheel has a nice ridged feel so my finger didn’t slip too much when scrolling.

    Again, my only noticeable con for this mouse is that it is wired. I am spoiled having gotten used to Bluetooth technology, but the wire is really long, nearly 5 feet in length.

    Overall, we are really enjoying this Kone Mouse.

    Comfortable wired gaming mouse

    I love the AIMO lighting, it just adds something to my desk to make it not boring, and this mouse fits nicely with the rest of my collection. In the software you can customize the lighting in quite a few ways and it syncs with the rest of your AIMO devices for a uniform pattern, if you want a pattern (you can also have a constant light or turn it off). I love the firm clicky buttons as well as the clicky scroll wheel. It is extremely responsive and has a customizable DPI setting. If you don’t have the software (highly recommend using the software) the DPI setting is a little hard to change, in the manual it will direct you on how to enter the menu and change settings using button combinations and the scroll wheel. I was able to adjust the DPI this way and the mouse soars across my larger monitor with ease. I really like the side button placement above the thumb with enough room to not accidently tap them when just using the mouse. I’ve had this problem with previous mice. The thumb indent is a little more pronounced as well and I find it more comfortable than my previous ROCCAT mouse. The cord is insanely flexible, If you want a wired mouse for your mobile game experience this would work pretty well for that as the cord feels like 550 Paracord than a data cable. Our new puppy got in the office and started chewing on the cord and yanking on it and it still works find so I would say it is pretty durable as well, which is a must for travel type items. Overall, this mouse has worked excellently for me.

    Awesome (and light!) gaming mouse

    First things first, this mouse is seriously light. I feel like I'm moving a small cloud around as I'm gaming. Weight-wise you wouldn't expect it to be that much different from a Zowie or such, but the lighter weight combined with those zero friction pads on the bottom makes this slicker than a shuffleboard table. I did notice that the pads (extra replacement set included) did have a small wrinkle in them but it was easily smoothed out. I would guess though that these pads are not going to last as long as your standard slick rubber skid pads you find on standard mice. The tradeoff may be worth it though to end up with something that glides so well.

    Responsiveness was on par with any other gaming mouse I've enjoyed or chosen to keep and the lighting is bright and fun. Two color sections above the left and right mouse key suffuse the entire top section of the mouse and definitely give it a vivid splash of color. I would imagine this would be incredibly nice for those gaming streamers who have a camera focused on their mice hand to allow for watchers to see their movements. There's also definitely been a nod given to comfort as some office-level ergonomics are on display most noticeably along the thumb rest. Overall the mouse rests nicely in my hand and I'd say you'd probably want a mid-to-large palm length to make this comfortable. In smaller hands the length will probably cause the bottom of the palm to hover in the air versus rest comfortably.

    Super light and optical switches!

    This mouse is amazing, I am loving it and it is my new favorite mouse for competitive gaming. Its sooo light! Ive never had a mouse so light. I love the fact that you can see they shaved weight by having those hexagonal holes (that most lightweight mouses have now), however they were able to cover those holes with a super thin shine thru cover (I never wanted to have those open mouses with hexagonal holes due my environment being super dusty and with animal hair, would have been a pain to clean those mouses, but with this one, the problem is solved!).

    They are using optical switches for the two mouse buttons and they feel great and super quick (light travels faster than anything), and they buttons have a nice thock on the click to them, almost like a mechanical keyboard.

    You can download they swarm software to further customize lighting and assign functions to the buttons/macros.

    The cable is braided and its super nice, incredibly soft and malleable and they also include an extra set of pft Teflon sliders in case the already installed ones get damaged I guess, it glides so easy over my mouse mat, and again, it is so light! I can believe how light it is; you will not be disappointed!

    Great Mouse

    Like everything else in the Omen product line, this mouse is exceptionally well built, and well designed. I did return this product, but not for any faults. I decided to upgrade to the wireless Omen Photon after purchasing the Omen Outpost mousepad in order to get the best value out of the mousepad, which comes with wireless Qi charging for the wireless mouse. But if you are going for a great wired mouse, this is the one to beat.

    Not great!

    Cheap feeling and clunky in the palm. I compared this side by side w the razer basilisk and the basilisk won by a landslide in quality comfort accuracy and overall feel. This is not good for finger/claw style gamers. It might be ok for palm pushers but the mouse is way too big for me. It also feels like cheap and hollow plastic the rubber grips on the side do not feel premium and gummy. The paint finish also was inferior to razers eggshell feel. Only thing good I can say is that it syncs to omen command center and it was cheap.

    RAZER VIPER (Wired)

    The mouse is really light without having a honeycomb shell. Medium sized mouse. I use a hybrid fingertip and claw grip btw. 5g sensor is accurate enough for most casual/power users. For $40, it's the best mouse you can get. The wire is okay. Not the best but still reliable enough to not snag or anything. RGB is not an eye sore.

    Mouse is responsive. I don’t know if I got a defective cord on mine but it is double maybe triple the size of my other cords for all of my razer products. This thing feels like it’s going to start shredding apart with moderate usage…not good for a wired mouse. It feels like a hoodie drawstring. It bugs me to no end that it doesn’t match ANY of the other razer product cords I have and those are all identical aside from color.

    Rediculous value!

    I've switched to this from a Logitech G502 Lightspeed. I went in to get a G703 Lightspeed to use with my laptop and play more competitively not knowing the Basilisk X Hyperspeed existed. With the extended holiday return policy I decided to give the Basilisk X a chance thinking I might run into something that would make me wish I had the G703 instead. It never happened. After dialing in my DPI preferences(need to install or use Razer Synapse), working with the Basilisk X has been just that good. I can't tell if there are any major differences between the optical sensor of this and the G502 but the Basilisk X is significantly lighter.

    If you are looking for a wireless mouse to use for FPS/TPS gaming and don't want to spend +$100, then the Basilisk X is an excellent choice. If you use any other Razer peripherals and already have Synapse installed, I would strongly recommend giving this mouse a shot.

    === Summary ===

    The Logitech G903 Hero wireless mouse is the BEST mouse I've ever used!! The G903 looks stylish & cool, it has features galore (hardware & software), and it completely fulfills its raison d'etre - to provide a reliable, responsive, and precise mouse experience no matter what you're doing, be it gaming or just browsing the Internet. Kudos to Logitech for engineering such an awesome piece of tech! Thumbs up~!!

    _____

    *Cons:

    -None

    ==== Design & Build ====

    Prior to the G903 Hero, I was using the Logitech G703 wireless mouse and before that the Logitech MX1000 laser wireless mouse. When I first laid my eyes on the G903 Hero, I thought "What a mean-looking mouse!" I love its symmetrical design and layout, matte black texture, responsive & clickity buttons, and tasteful RGB color flourish.

    The two buttons on the left & right side are swappable/removable and they stay put via magnets, which is brilliant and simple. The access cover on the bottom of the mouse where one can insert the optional coin weight is also held down via a strong magnet and it can easily be opened by simply pushing down semi-hard on the notched circle area until it flips open.

    The mouse was quickly recognized by Windows 10 upon inserting the small and slim USB dongle into an open USB port on my PC and I experienced no setup issues whatsoever. Super simple plug and play.

    As expected from a mouse from this price range, all the buttons were responsive and satisfyingly clickity and precise. No issues here.

    When it comes to build materials and build quality, the G903 Hero is simply excellent. The Hero offers good grip, texture feel, and the fit-and-finish is perfect. It is also very cool that with the optional purchase of the wireless charging mouse mat - aka PowerPlay - the G903 can always be topped off and ready for use with no downtime. The customizable RGB lighting options are nice as well, offering not only different shades of color but also different lighting animations for your taste and pleasure.

    With that said, not all is perfect with the Hero. Due to its symmetrical ambidextrous design that can accommodate both left- and right-handed people, long-term use wasn't as comfortable as my G703, which is designed & curved for right-handed usage. Also, due to the Hero's slightly heavier weight, it took some time before I got adjusted to handling it smoothly. And due to its extra bulk over my G703, I experienced hand fatigue a bit faster.

    All in all, big KUDOS for Logitech for engineering such a marvelous and fantastic mouse.

    ==== Performance ====

    Using this mouse is utter sublime goodness. After getting adjusted to its heavier weight during the initial "break-in" period, using the Hero became second-nature and I was perfectly in control no matter what I was doing.

    After playing around with the different DPI levels, I found my groove and smoothly blasted my way through hectic combat in Rage 2. Everything was so precise and responsive. I'm no twitch or competitive FPS gamer but I still appreciate the precision, smooth operation, and responsiveness of this mouse.

    ==== Software Integration ====

    Prior to using the Logitech G Hub software, I was using the Logitech Gaming Software with my G703. The newer G Hub app looks more modern and sleek in design. All the options are sorted in logical locations and navigating within the app is intuitive.

    Besides using the G Hub to set RGB lighting options, it is also here you can customize what the buttons do and create shortcuts, macros, and specific mouse profiles for different apps. As long as you take your time to look through all the details, it's quite intuitive and easy to figure out. It's definitely better and cleaner than the older Logitech Gaming Software. Another Win~!!

    ==== My Take ====

    If the $149.99 MSRP is something you can swing, then absolutely get this mouse. It is considered to be the BEST gaming mouse on the market by many and for a good reason. It looks cool, can be used left- or right-handed, comes with 11 buttons, it's relatively light, and the G Hub software allows for RGB lighting control and creation of useful macros, shortcuts, and app profiles. I can't imagine there being a better mouse than the G903 Hero. The G903 is definitely Top Tier & an absolute buy~!

    The HERO Gamers Deserve

    There's a seemingly endless list of options when choosing a wireless gaming mouse. I've used several from competing brands like Corsair and Razer, but Logitech's updated G903 is by far the most responsive and versatile mouse I've owned. If you want to lose the wires without any compromises, you're looking at the right option. Here's my take:

    === DESIGN AND COMFORT ===

    - With a symmetrical design, the G903 is completely ambidextrous. The left and right buttons can be customized as needed. Without resting areas for your thumb or pinky, the mouse is nicely rounded at the back and sits firmly in my palm.

    - At 110 grams, the G903 is nearly a perfect weight. For those who prefer a heavier mouse, Logitech has included a 10 gram weight that is easily installed on the bottom of the mouse.

    - There are nine buttons by default, although you can optionally put in the thumb buttons for both sides of the mouse, giving you eleven buttons. The two DPI adjustment buttons under the scroll wheel are kind of awkward to get to, but I suppose I won't be switching DPIs all that often.

    - The mouse has a switch to turn the scroll wheel from one that continuously scrolls to one with a "stepped" action, which is extremely useful not just in gaming, but also for productivity tasks or scrolling through long web pages.

    - The primary buttons are extremely quick to react with a very satisfying "click" noise. Logitech claims that the primary buttons are on a "button tensioning system for ultra-responsive performance," and wow -- it works wonders. Some may prefer a click that requires more force or effort to activate, but I think Logitech has found the sweet spot here.

    === PERFORMANCE ===

    - The largest selling point of the refreshed G903 "HERO" model is undoubtedly the HERO 16K sensor. I've never used a more responsive sensor on a mouse, and it has made a world of difference in gaming. While playing Doom and Anthem, the extra ease and freedom of movement is immediately noticeable. At 16,000 DPI, the precision and responsiveness will be apparent in all games and productivity tasks.

    - Like all other Logitech products I've used, wireless performance is second to none. Logitech's Lightspeed wireless technology is virtually indistinguishable from a wired mouse, and I haven't had any dropouts or interference problems.

    - Battery life is absolutely astonishing. The original G903 could go up to 32 hours on a single charge. This refreshed HERO model can go a whopping 180 hours on just one charge. Incredible.

    === OTHER FEATURES ===

    - The G903 supports Logitech's Powerplay wireless charging system, where the entire mouse pad acts as a charging surface, so you'll never have to plug in the mouse to charge. It looks really neat, but I don't have one to test with.

    - Logitech's G-HUB software has tons of powerful options and customizations, but it's not very easy to use at first. You can download user-created profiles for tons of games, but I didn't see many available for the G903 HERO. I'm sure more will be created over time.

    === OVERALL ===

    With the G903 HERO, Logitech took one of the best PC gaming products on the market and made it even better. The design is top-notch. The buttons are perfectly responsive. It has one of the best sensors available. Battery life is insane. What more could you want in a wireless gaming mouse? Highly recommended!

    Logitech Gaming Mouse Is Legit, Worth It

    Great wireless mouse. Elite/hardcore gamers often refrain from wireless mice inferring a slight delay in response...however, this device is lightning fast. Regardless, if response time is a concern, you can wire the mouse as well. There is also an optional charging pad to forego having to charge the device. Although I think defeats the purpose of wanting a wireless equipment. The design of the mouse looks slick. it has a modern, dope style. You can arrange the side buttons for right or left handed preference. With the Logitech software, you can customize the effects of the LED lighting in various ways, even have it react to sounds, such as music etc. The wheel can be easily adjusted to scroll a few lines at a time (as in reading text), or scroll continuously with an unobtrusive button. The scroll wheel button-function is just as easy to click as any other mouse I've used as it is sometimes inadvertently pressed. The wheel itself feels real smooth (when adjusted to be so) and can be configured to ad a function by rocking it to the left or right.

    Meet the next hero...that's not a dud.

    Logitech G903 Lightspeed is not only an outperforming gaming mouse, but this is perhaps the best mouse let alone gaming mouse my hands have ever graced. The design, weight, and feel just leaves your hands feeling comfortable no matter what task you are doing. Highest levels of DPI I also ever expected with 16000 that just will own in gaming on first-person shooters. With so many good gaming mice out there G903 stands out as the better one even if its one of most expensive mouse you buy.

    Design: First off I want to talk about the design of the mouse because it's really actually amazing. It doesn't matter if you are right-handed or left-handed the G903 is ambidextrous leaving an extremely comfortable feeling no matter in which hand you use. There are 11 buttons (Yes! 11 buttons.) on this mouse, Every button is programmable but more on that later. The scroll wheel can be suited for gaming and surfing the web. When using there is no awkward slip off from my palm as the mouse is a full-sized mouse. One thing that gets me with this mouse is that each click or button press its more a more satisfying click, it just feels so good to use. Whatever engineering went into the G903 it paid off big time.

    The coating on the mouse does feel premium all the way around. Design is definitely speaking "gamer" like so if you don't like the look of gaming products this might not be your cup of tea, Though to me the black mouse with the smooth transitions of the LEDs looks so beautiful just sitting on the desk. Just speaking, in general, the Logitech G903 every part just feels is really well made. The 10G Removeable weight for me adds the perfect amount of heft to the mouse allowing me and my hand to play for hours on this thing. Logitech presentation feels great when it comes to this mouse.

    Battery life is the top of its class! 140 hours with LEDs off and 120 hours with the LEDs on. Corsair's own Dark Core RGB is nice on its own but with the battery life fails to hold up. As for G903, the battery life lasts 120 hours way more than Corsair Dark Core ever could, This mouse keeps going and going and doesn't take long to charge up at all. DPI Levels reach to 16K which speed blaze from side to side on ultra-wide monitors, The real shine of this mouse here is playing E-sports titles on a 240hz monitor. Every movement is precise when it comes to gaming online, every moment is crucial. So using this on PUBG and Rainbow Six: Siege G903 can keep up as fast as my eyes allow me to. Haven't tried Fortnight but I'm sure this mouse works perfectly for snappy responses.

    A top defining feature of the Logitech G903 is that you can is a "POWERPLAY" mouse pad that can charge up the mouse as you use it wirelessly. It is sold separately and I haven't had a chance to test it but I will be one of the people who buy it for my gaming rig in the future. I truly do enjoy the mouse and I'm a sucker for LEDs I have to admit so this is one of the best feeling mice I've used so I want to keep it up.

    When it comes to software the G-Hub is great, giving an almost unlimited amount of customization when it comes to tailoring the mouse to your needs. There are 11 buttons that can be programmed to do anything you want and you can add your own programs into the software for the mouse. Here you can also adjust the DPI, Change the LEDs, Brightness of the LEDs, and a whole lot more. There is even a 32 bit ARM chip in the mouse and you can save profiles from PC to PC which is super useful. Even for me as a PC gamer feel like this is overkill and overwhelming but everything works flawlessly.

    At the end of the day, this to me is one of the best mice I've used to date. One I can see myself using for a very long time. With this many features, there isn't anything missing from Logitech G903. The only thing I can see be an issue is price but every single thing it can do is totally worth it. G Team made an excellent product for gamers, One that actually worked perfectly as advertised...One that I actually enjoy using every day when I game on PC. I can't wait to try this with the "Powerplay" pad. Logitech made a well above exceptional mouse. 5 out of 5 stars.

  • Review by Batlacit, 10 out of 10
    I think this one's Batman.

    There are basically two schools of thought when it comes to gaming mice. One favors stripped down minimalism focusing on low weight and simple designs that are likely to pass muster at an e-sports tournament. The other, which is the one I prefer, is that one should stick a button on every possible surface of the mouse that makes sense, then add two more for good measure.

    The G903 might be the first mouse I've used that actually caters to both of those positions at the same time. And if that isn't enough to get your attention, the rest of the features absolutely will.

    First up, I'd like to talk about build quality. This is an astonishingly sturdy mouse given the fact that they've gone to extraordinary lengths to make it weigh about as much as a pair of tissues and half the buttons are only being held on by tiny magnets. The case is a sturdy plastic with a light non-rubberized finish, and potential weak spots (such as the the point where the main buttons join the rest of the body) have been reinforced with exposed gussets to provide strength without adding weight. The buttons themselves are mechanical and feature metal springs to provide an appropriate level of tension, giving it a very pleasant feel that's substantially more "solid" than what you get from even other high end mice. The scroll wheel is primarily metal with a standard rubber tread strip in the middle. They've even reinforced the micro-USB charging/data cable to pretty much rule out the possibility of you ruining the port on the mouse by typical rough handling. I foresee no problems tossing this in your bag and bringing it with you on the road. They even included a rigid carrying case for the small accessories you're more likely to lose, like the removable button covers.

    Speaking of, the customization options you get with this mouse is another major selling point. The mouse has an ambidextrous design, with a total of 4 removable thumb buttons (2 on each side.) Everything's held on by magnets, making it very easy to swap out the buttons based on what you need. Since I'm of the opinion that you can always use more buttons I immediately replaced the button cover on the right hand side with two more buttons to give myself some pinkie switches. It was a little awkward at first, given that the mouse tapers a little sharply at the front and my hands are on the larger side, but once I'd trained myself to stop hitting them by accident and set them up as copy/paste buttons via Logitech's G-Hub application I was quite pleased by them. This program also lets you fine-tune the lighting effects and the Hero sensor, which by default will top out at a very twitchy 6,400 DPI rather than its full 16,000. This is, in my opinion, a good thing. At full sensitivity even the tiniest mouse movement will send the cursor across a standard 1080p display. Also worth pointing out is that unlike a lot of wireless gaming mice, all these customization options can be set over a wireless connection rather than requiring you to plug it into your USB port for the more advanced programming. There's also an included 10g weight you can install in the back of the mouse if you prefer something just a little heavier, in the same socket that allows you to install the powerplay wireless charging puck that lets you charge the mouse off of a powerplay enabled mouse pad while you use it. Pretty much the only thing you can't add on here is a thumb or finger rest.

    Finally, i want to talk about what it's like using the mouse for tasks that aren't gaming (since for most people that will sadly represent the bulk of what it gets used for.) And I have to say it's pretty good for that too. The wireless connection is rock solid, and is indeed so close to wired performance that you're unlikely to notice the difference. They've included one of Logitech's excellent hybrid scroll wheels that can switch between ratcheting and smooth action (and if you've never tried one of these before, trust me, they're amazing) and it's very easy to change the DPI to something more conducive to productivity without needing to go into the app. The only real concession they've made is that unlike most Logitech mice that use the hybrid scroll wheel design, the switch between the ratchet and smooth modes has to be done manually rather than automatically in what I'm pretty sure was done to keep weight down. And I did find myself missing a thumb rest, and I've gotten very used to canted mice that are a bit easier on your wrist, so it's probably not what I'd recommend for someone who's looking exclusively for a productivity device unless you're working in a field such as design work where you really need the high quality sensor and adjustable DPI. But it's certainly a better experience than most devices out there, and is definitely one of the only mice of this quality that can be easily and seamlessly adapted for left hand use.

    Lag free wireless gaming

    Pros

    Ambidextrous and comfortable

    Light with additional 10G weight if you prefer

    Wireless dongle can be extended with cord

    Works wired and wireless

    No perceivable lag on wireless

    Good battery life

    Customizable lighting profiles that change with the game

    Mouse can smooth scroll or step scroll

    On the fly configurable dpi

    Can be wireless charged via mousepad addon

    Both sets of shoulder buttons can be used if desired

    Cons

    Logitech micro switches tend to fail early

    Weight not configurable beyond adding 10G

    Shoulder switches are a bit high and back for quick reach

    Lighting effects make understanding actual dpi harder

    Only one real light for effects

    Custom game lighting profiles setup confusing

    Design

    The Logitech G903 wireless mouse is the same design that has been around since 2017. The style is somewhat angular and aggressive looking but, not so much so that it would garner strange looks outside gaming circles like some. The has a styled G, for gaming, that lights up and some lights that indicate the dpi setting as well as serve as additional lighting. The design is ambidextrous with identical shoulder buttons on each side that can either be covered with plastic covers that magnetically snap on or configured as additional buttons for a total of four shoulder buttons. In the center are two buttons to increase or decrease the dpi mode to increase or decrease the sensitivity. A button immediately behind the scroll wheel allows you to change the scroll wheel mode from smooth scrolling to stepped scrolling depending on what you are doing. Underneath is a compartment held in place with magnets where you can place a 10-gram weight if you prefer a heavier mouse. A total of six Teflon pads steady the mouse and help it glide across the surface. Included is a braided cord, USB adapter, and USB nano receiver. The mouse can operate hardwired or you can even use the cord along with the USB adapter to move the USB nano receiver to a place with better reception if, say for instance, your USB plugs are located on the back of your tower. It’s a nice touch to have this function so that wireless operation has the best chances of being interference free.

    With wireless mice, one concern is running out of battery mid game. Of course, you can solve this by going hardwired but if you have some extra money you can splurge for Logitech PowerPlay mat. It allows the you to keep the mouse battery from draining during gameplay as it continuously provides power wirelessly. In independent tests it does not increase the battery level during gameplay but keeps it steady, so your battery won’t die. After gameplay stops, the pad can further charge up the mouse while not in use.

    Setup

    Like pretty much any Logitech device, setup is pretty much painless out of the box. Plug in the nano receiver or cord and Windows does the rest. It gets you up and running quickly. If you want the advance lighting features a small amount of manual work is required to install the Logitech G HUB software. HUB allows you to configure custom lighting profiles, include other compatible Logitech devices besides the mouse. You can set lighting, dpi, button assignments, and macro settings as persistent throughout the system or game specific where HUB will automatically switch settings based on the configuration of the game. It seems like a small touch but it’s nice to be able to go from one game to another and have your mouse automatically switch everything about its personality without you needing to do anything after the initial setup. If you create a profile, then you can save and share your custom profiles with others. Although game configurations are still limited at this point, you can also look at and download game profiles from other gamers to see if you like their button mapping and lighting profiles.

    Usage

    The buttons and scroll wheel have the familiar Logitech feel if you have felt it before. Even though the design is ambidextrous, it feels more like a contoured mouse. Although common today, the customizable dpi settings really come in handy for daily use so that you aren’t flying across the page while browsing the web, but you can also get the quick response needing during gaming. You can adjust the rate on the fly, but button placement might make quick changes awkward. Your lighting effects will also make what mode you’re in a bit confusing. When in Windows, dpi changes provide a toast message saying what rate you are at but, in gameplay you must rely on the status lights on the mouse. A small issue is that the same lights that show what dpi level you are at are also part of the main lighting. This means dpi changes will for a very moment indicate dpi mode but if a lighting effect is occurring you might miss what mode you set it to. If this is really a problem really depends on your style of gaming. If you are the type that just switches and feels out the speed this won’t affect you in the slightest, but for those who are looking for a specific setting this might slow you down a bit. DPI modes go all the way down to a snail’s pace of 200 dpi up to a superhuman 12,000 dpi.

    During usage both wired and wireless the lag, if any, was imperceptible. Button clicks happened what felt like instantaneously and with a satisfying click. The sensor tracked motion reliably and accurately against several surfaces with no hint of jitter. For gameplay the step motion of the scroll wheel would likely be the favored method as it provides a soft click as you scroll allowing precision weapon chances. If there were any criticism to lodge against use it would be that smooth scrolling often tends to scroll the opposite directly slightly each time your life your finger off the wheel. Also, the shoulder buttons are slightly high and back compared to the left and right mouse buttons. If you tend to like to hold the mouse more forward, you might find the reach to the rear shoulder button a bit of a stretch. If you prefer to hold form the midpoint back, then the shoulder buttons have been placed very well. Battery life has been very good at an average 1% drop per day with moderate usage including a mix of gaming and casual usage at 3 hours per day. Gaming battery life would likely be lower due to the higher dpi and constant usage, but you should still expect even a long gaming session won’t find you running out of battery.

    Conclusion

    The Logitech G903 looks and feels solid and has the Logitech feel that anyone has used before will immediately recognize. They work great at the beginning, but their micro switches tend to wear and act inconsistently as they age. Previous iterations of the G903 exhibited an issue with double and triple clicks with age so, hopefully Logitech has improved the hardware that caused the issue. Unless you are a heavy user, this might not happen until well into the life of the mouse at which point you are in the market for the latest and greatest anyway. Of course, if you are a Logitech fan you have likely experienced the micro switch problem at least once but the mix of features, consistency, and accuracy during the life brings you back. In the case of the G903, the overall operation and gameplay makes it hard to beat and deserves consideration if you are in the market for a gaming mouse.

    Precise Gamer Mouse

    The choice to be able to choose wired or wireless is excellent. Battery life is very long and there seems to be no difference in performance using it wireless. An interesting caveat is you can use it wireless with the receiving dongle plugged into the cord using an included adapter. That way, if the battery would go low, you can quickly remove the adapter and plug the cord right into the mouse without having to reach behind your computer to make changes with the cord and the receiving dongle. The included cord is covered with fabric to make it super smooth, really flexible, and nice looking. I had no trouble getting the mini usb cable plugged into the deep recess of the mouse. It actually fits tight and is well protected with the design.

    The available color changes made possible by the software will have you trying so many choices that you will soon become overwhelmed with the possibilities (a good thing). The software also allows you to set up Macros, several user settings for DPI, and to calibrate your mouse.

    The mouse has 5 presets for DPI settings that can be cycled through using the button below the scroll wheel. The factory defaults are, 800, 1800, 3500, 9000 and 16,000. The maximum DPI setting of 16,000 is nice if you have a 4k monitor to navigate across but for HD resolution monitors its too sensitive to use for daily tasks. If you play games that require quick movements you would benefit from the 16,000 DPI setting. Cycling through 5 presets is probably not something you are going to do while gaming. As you cycle through the presets the color of the top stripe changes to tell you which preset you are on but if you are focused on the game you are not going to be looking at your mouse. It would be nice if you could reduce the presets to 2 or 3. This would make it easier to quickly switch to the preset you want. You can set one of the buttons to the "Sniper Mode" macro which will drop your DPI to the lowest preset you have configured.

    The scroll wheel is adjustable from 24 to 12 stops using the switch on the bottom of the mouse. 24 stops is nice for scrolling through long documents or web pages but if you use the scroll wheel to cycle through your weapons in games, it's too easy to overshoot your selection. Switching the wheel to 12 stops gives you better control while switching between weapons.

    The mouse feels good in your hand and the controls are well placed and responsive. One detail I noticed, was with your little finger on the side. The rear shelf provides good support for your thumb but it isn't long enough to fully support your little finger. This leads to pinky drag while using the mouse. The sides of the mouse aren't concave and don't have any grippy rubber that could help keep your pinky from dragging. I would like to see the "shelf" go more forward on the right side. Maybe not a problem for everyone, but something I noticed.

    Outside of a couple of small changes I would like to see addressed, it's a great mouse that I would recommend to a friend.

    A Few Nitpicks, But an All-Around Great Performer

    Alienware is easily one of the most recognizable names in gaming, and for good reason. Over the years they have earned their reputation for offering strong performing products, at reasonable price-points, with highly unique styles. This Alienware AW610M Gaming Mouse is no different, clearly building on years of experience to craft something that was the perfect addition to my gaming set-up.

    The mouse is solidly built, with a textured plastic material that feels durable. The mouse itself is generally low-profile, with a body that feels longer, rather than taller. This took a bit of getting used to for me, as I am used to more rounded mouse bodies which are a bit taller in the hand, but overall, it didn’t take me long to get used to the more elongated form-factor of the mouse. I have large hands, so the mouse does feel a bit small in my hand, but not so much that I find it distracting. Additionally, the elongated form factor of the mouse means my fingers are stretched over the long left and right clickers, giving me less travel time to press the clickers, which is something I definitely noticed when playing FPS games.

    The back of the mouse has matte black fins which extend to both sides of the mouse. This provides slight support for both the thumb and pinky fingers, and allows the mouse to be ambidextrous. However, I did find the fins small enough with my larger hands that they didn’t really provide much in the way of substantial support. Nonetheless, they are nice additions which help compliment the design of the mouse.

    In terms of functionality, the mouse has the elongated left and right clickers, two customizable macro buttons on the left-side of the mouse, a textured black scroll wheel, and a button just behind the scroll wheel which lets you adjust the DPI of the mouse for different sensitivity levels. This adjustable DPI button is certainly a welcome feature, and works well with the different DPI levels, however, the color coding associated these DPI changes is not at all clear. What I mean by this is that the RGB bar behind the DPI button will change colors as you adjust the DPI level, however, there is no indication of what color matches with which DPI level, and so many times it comes down to adjusting the DPI, testing the mouse, re-adjusting, and so forth until you dial it in. It is not a big deal, but allowing customizable color-ramping with the DPI levels would be nice, in order to make the DPI levels easier to detect.

    Speaking of RGB, in addition to the RGB bar on the top of the mouse, there is also an RGB Alienware logo on the palm rest, and two RGB bars on each side of the palm fins. I am a big fan of subtle RGB touches, and the RGB on this mouse is bright, but accented well enough that it doesn’t get distracting during gaming sessions. You can use the customizable Alienware control center to adjust the RGB colors, or create custom profiles for different games. Overall, for those that love RGB, you won’t be limited on options here in any way, and if you have other Alienware gear, you can control everything nicely from one location.

    In terms of performance, I have been using this mouse for about a week now as my daily gaming peripheral, and I have no complaints at all. The mouse tracks perfectly with the action on screen, and the adjustable DPI made the whole experience highly customizable. The mouse clickers have good tactile feedback and aiming in games feels very natural. Recently I have been playing Remedy’s Control, and I have had zero complaints jumping in and getting right into the action. All-in-all, there isn’t a whole lot to say on the mouse’s performance because it just works as it is supposed to. It tracks well, even on a flat desk without a mousepad, and has a comfortable feel that can be used for hours without complaint.

    Overall, I am a big fan of this mouse. There are minor improvements that could be made, such as extending the thumb and pinky finger fins, making the mouse slightly taller and/or wider, adding more customizable buttons, and additional DPI level color customization. None of this detracts from the full experiences of the mouse however, and overall, I have very little to nitpick. The battery life is long, it charges quickly via USB cable, and is dead simple to set-up and get running. Definitely recommended for those looking for a simple and effect wireless gaming peripheral solution.

    Aesthetic Mouse With Excellent Features!

    I recently started getting into the world of gaming. Gaming mouses have some of the most aesthetic features a mouse can have. I was bewildered by the amount of gaming mouses there are and the different price points.

    I wanted something not over the top but something that will last me a long time. Alienware mouses have just that. This one in particular has a very clean/professional look. The various customization settings are a plus as well. You can change the scroll speed, DPI, RGB lights, and much more. Comfort wise, this mouse is suitable for your hand, as the wing curves in the back feel really natural and comfy to hold. There is also the option to choose between wired or wireless, which is very important if you're mouse is low battery and needs some juice.

    The only problem I had was with setting the mouse up and trying to figure out what all the buttons and switches were for.This is my first gaming mouse and there were no instructions included in the box nor in the paperwork given. Though, after a few minutes, I figured it out and got the mouse to work, I still was uncertain about what the buttons and switches did so I did my research. I found the manual online to which I will link here and hopefully help those of you that need it!

    Worth it...but not at the same time

    I really enjoy this mouse! It’s really comfortable since I have very large hands and the thickness of it really makes it perfect for gaming! However, the software is having a bit of an issue where it would show a notification that my mouse has zero battery life, when in actuality, there’s still 80%. I also noticed that during some idling sessions, when I use it again the curser would idle sway on its own or be really delayed. It never happened before so I don’t know how I feel about that. Overall, it’s a great mouse! I paid 70-80 USD with the sale that was going on at the time but for $100, it would say it’s not an insanely expensive mouse, but it could be a bit cheaper to compete with some of the other brands. Overall, it’s a great product and I’m looking forward to future Alienware mices!

    Killer Wireless Mouse for Gaming

    This is a great mouse and improves upon a Corsair mouse I’ve been using that is very similar, called the Dark Core RGB. This is the Pro SE version of that mouse meaning it has updated features and Qi Wireless Charging. You can still buy the Pro (non SE) version but in my opinion it’s a no-brainer to pay the $10 more to get the Qi charging. Despite a long lasting battery it is just so convenient for me to set the mouse on a wireless charging pad at the end of the day then to remember to plug it in every few days. It means my mouse is always charged and ready to go.

    If you do have one of the older non Pro Dark Cores there are some significant differences, such as a USB-C connector versus microUSB. I’m a big fan of USB-C and personally can’t wait until all USB-A and microUSB ports are extinct for good. The wireless dongle is much more compact (see photo, newer one on top) but unfortunately still not USB-C.

    Behind the pinky grip is a spot to store the dongle (see photo) which I absolutely love. There are only a few mice I’ve seen that have this feature and it makes it much less likely to misplace the dongle when storing or traveling.

    Another difference is the buttons on the left hand side of the mouse. The non Pro versions have a button surrounded by a thin LED and a back and forward button to either side of it while the new one drops the main button but adds a really nice multi-zone RGB strip. (see photo). All of the lighting effects can be adjusted with the Corsair iCue software, there are presets to choose from or you can create your own.

    Now, for performance, this mouse is hard to beat. I’ve played the ridiculously fast-paced Doom (2016) and didn’t have any issues with the wireless mouse or clicks not registering while I blast away demons. I also played games such as Halo: Reach without a problem. I will say I did not test the Bluetooth mode of the mouse, this was all in the 2.4Ghz wireless. Bluetooth compatibility is nice to have if your run out of USB ports but for gaming the wireless mode is the only way to go to get reliable ultra-fast performance.

    === Pros ===

    Qi Wireless Charging

    Excellent weight and ergonomics

    Lots of RGB Customization

    Excellent Battery Life

    Bluetooth or 2.4Ghz Support

    Compact USB Dongle

    Mouse has USB-C Connector

    18000 DPI

    === Cons ===

    Dongle is still USB-A

    Overall – if you’re looking for a gaming mouse this is a very good option, especially with the wireless Qi charging

    Excellent Mouse That Has All Features You Needed

    I got this mouse while it was on sale. Compared to other mice, it has three connection methods, including wired, wireless, and Bluetooth. They are excellent for cross platform usage. I can charge it via wire or Qi wireless. So far, it is responsive. I start to like it over my Logitech MX Master 2s.

    Absolutely the best wireless mouse ever

    First off, I'm reviewing it as an owner of the MM1000 mouse pad with the USB 3.0 passthrough (for the Dark Core's USB dongle) and the Qi wireless recharging as you never have to bust out that damned USB charging cable. You'll have to use it in order to update the firmware and calibrate the mouse to your mouse pad, but after that, if you got the MM1000 for which this mouse is designed, you are all set! If not, that damned USB charging cable makes this mouse impossible to use while charging (it's so stiff and rigid). In any case, in use, this wireless mouse performs like a wired mouse but without the annoying cable that you need to bungie somewhere for slack while gaming. The sensors on this thing are also incredibly precise, and you can even adjust it in iCUE down to the single DPI. This mouse along with the MM1000 mouse pad make for the ultimate in gaming peripherals.

    iCue doesn’t prompt for automatic download

    No automatic game profiles

    Design

    The Dark Core RBG Pro SE is latest generation of Corsair’s highest end wireless gaming mice. The latest iteration includes Qi wireless gaming that is compatible with any Qi charger, but more importantly their companion gaming mousepad. The specs state 128 grams but this one came in at 140-142 grams depending on side grip. The charging/data cable now uses USB-C instead of Micro-USB. The side grip is interchangeable between sleek and offering a finger rest. Underneath the side grip is a storage bay for the high-speed wireless USB dongle. Operation is through hardwired USB-C cable, High speed Slipstream wireless, or Bluetooth. On the underside of the mouse is a mode switch where you can choose off, Bluetooth, or high-speed wireless operation with hardwired mode switching automatically when plugged in. This is nice because you can then use the same mouse for regular work without a dongle and then switch to high speed on your gaming system. The profile is a medium height arch which decent compromise to allow the most popular grips with good comfort. The finger rest is particularly helpful if you use a claw grip. The back half of the mouse has a soft, textured surface to improve comfort and grip. In front of the thumb rest are three LED lights that indicate DPI mode and two configurable buttons. On the left click mouse button there are also two more configurable buttons.

    Usage and Performance

    The instructions say to plug it in hardwired first for initial configuration. But, out of the box it works if you just plug in the USB dongle. That said, unlike other brands, it doesn’t prompt to download their custom iCue software. This is good in the fact that you can get straight to using it. The bad is if you didn’t read the instructions or already know, all the advanced settings and profile setup is done through iCue. It would have been nice if, like other mice, on initial install on a new system it prompted you to install the configuration software. It’s not a deal breaker but just not as refined as one would think for what should be a high-end device. That said, without configuration the profile button switches between a couple of lighting profiles and the buttons on the side of the left mouse click button still work to change DPI mode. Operation is smooth and precise with no perceptible lag. A quick flick to the side to shoot and the mouse stops where you stop without overshooting. The slight texture also means if you tend to lift while moving you should have a good amount of grip to do so confidently. The main issue is the button profiles don’t make it easy to determine which button you are touching which leads to more accidental button presses. The DPI mode is a perfect example of this.

    To get really get to the capabilities of this mouse you need to install the iCue software. When you launch it after installing it looks slick, but unfortunately it seems looks came first. All the functions are there, but it seems they didn’t take a lot of time thinking of how to organize things and make the software simple to use. You can create macros but there is no obvious way to assign them after creation. After digging, you might find the menu has an option to go to support and you can browse their support website. There is a macro section but then part the instructions says macros aren’t supported without a keyboard which is strange if true because why would the mouse options have macro setup. Furthermore, when trying to map a macro to a mouse button it never seemed to work. In short, if macro activation is supported via the mouse setup of such functions is far from intuitive. Furthermore, there isn’t any sort of indication or default OSD that indicates mode changes or Macro activations.

    Another oddity is that there is a sniper mode in the DPI settings. This seems great because you can put very low DPI to allow precise aiming while sniping. What is strange is the DPI mode switch buttons don’t toggle through sniping mode. There also isn’t a pre-configured button for it. With further digging in the help you will find that sniper mode requires to map it to a button. That just seems a bit strange to go so far as to create the option for a DPI profile built in but not have at least a default mapping. It also further gives the feeling that the hardware is good, but the software just feels unfinished.

    Finally, when it comes to storing profiles, just when you think you have them stored on the mouse you might find yourself out of luck again. According to the specs, the mouse can store up to 3 profiles that don’t require iCue. It could be the confusion with the software but in use once the profiles were “saved” and the mouse was moved to a new computer it was like starting all over again. At least the positive part of this is the default profile isn’t horrible, but the process just doesn’t feel intuitive. On research, it seems others have had similar issues with older versions asking on different sites. Seasoned users have either pointed them to Youtube videos or other forums so it would seem this confusion isn’t isolated. Apparently, there is also an option to auto switch light and mouse profiles automatically when launching a game but this goes back to needing to do more research. Other gaming mice offer to automatically install the companion software and even auto search for games and even offer default game profiles and well as allow you to download and share from others. Corsair might have allowed loading shared profiles, but they don’t make it straightforward to find if they do.

    Final Thoughts

    The Corsair Dark Core RBG SE has a name to match its design, complicated. On the hardware front, it’s a solid mouse besides the button profile issue. It’s hard to comment on individual grip styles, weights, and button activations but the mouse feels well built. If you are a PC gamer and have tweaked every aspect of your system from voltages to clocks speeds until just shy of the point of failure or thermal overload, programming the Dark Core is just another thing to figure out. The big question is if the hardware draws you enough to warrant figuring out the configuration when more intuitive options exist.

    Bad support app.

    First one had issues out the box. Had issues getting custom keybindings to stick so updated the firmware on the dongle and mouse. Update failed, wireless receiver disabled itself and I was locked out. Tried a forced update....failed. iCue no longer recognizes the mouse at all. So replaced it. Didn’t update the second one but kept lagging/disconnecting in game. So I tried updating firmware on mouse and wireless dongle and update FAILED AGAIN. Mouse stops working, dongle disabled again and back in the box AGAIN. Complete joke of support app. My G502 is so much better. On the plus side, it feels great in my hand. Pity it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to.

    An amazing budget mouse that hits above its weight

    Mice have continued to get better and better, and so have tastes. Sensor quality and type are very important for different use cases. Gaming mice used to be a bit of a crap shoot: did the mouse have embedded acceleration, weird lift off distance, etc. Things have gotten much better, and manufacturers have gotten better at equipping their premium gaming mice with the hardware gamers are looking for. Of course, the high end is awash with highly capable mice, but what about the entry level?

    This is where SteelSeries’s Rival 3 sits. At a $30 MSRP it undercuts much of the competition. While the price spikes above a ‘basic’ mouse, the Rival 3 hits above its weight when it comes to the important gaming features. You get a good sensor (TrueMove Core - which rumor has it is a pixart 3331), excellent buttons (60m click mechanical switches), customizable RGB lighting, and on-board memory/DPI settings.

    First of all, the packaging is pretty basic. If you’re going to cut costs somewhere, this is the place to do it. The box is slightly larger than the mouse itself, and focuses on the specs. The cable is a simple rubber affair at 6ft long. While not the braided cables found on higher end mice, it may be considered a positive for some who know how braided cables can catch on things.

    The mouse physically is relatively light, at only 77 grams. The diminutive weight of this mouse keeps it feeling almost weightless in hand. The balance and weight distribution are excellent in my opinion and keep the mouse planted well. There are 4 buttons up top counting the scroll wheel. The primary left and right buttons have a satisfying click to them that differs from other popular mice. They’re quieter and have a bit of a thock to them instead of a click. The scroll wheel matches the feel quite closely and has a decent scroll, if not as precise as some higher end mice. The 4th button is the profile switcher, which can be set to switch up to 5 different profiles. Along the left side are two backward/forward mouse buttons that are quite narrow. Some might find them hard to use, but they fit my medium sized hand profile well. The overall shape of the mouse is lower than many mice, raising to only 1.5” at its tallest location. The palm hump is not quite as prevalent, so palmer may want to consider a different mouse. Clutch users like myself will rejoice at a mouse that gets out of the way and has generous gripping zones (helped by those thin back/forward buttons).

    The software is excellent from Steelseries. They’ve been doing custom gaming mice for a while, and the sensor options and on board profiles are competitive with the best. Some may bemoan the lack of adjustable lift off distance, and indeed the firmware that shipped with the mouse appeared to have quite a high lift off set, but the firmware update that came to me on the 27th of March 2020 seems to have abated this lift-off distance. It would still be quite nice to have this be customizable, but alas, I’m quite happy with the latest firmware. Again, up to 5 profiles can be cycled through giving a large amount of customization for DPI, polling rate, angle snapping, and acceleration/deceleration. I found two honed settings was all I wanted, but greatly appreciated them being stored on the mouse for when I switched between my desktop and laptop. I wish the illumination would follow the profile, making it easier at a glance to see what profile was selected. Alas, it is only globally configurable.

    That said, there are 3 zones and they each can be separately set. The zones basically amount to top, middle, bottom. They can be separately configured with settings, or all synced together. Either way, this is the best cheap mouse illumination I’ve seen, outpacing most of my more expensive mice. And the lighting isn’t over the top, but rather helpful at both illuminating the surrounding pad and giving you a solid target to grab with the outer rim illuminated.

    Buttons are also customizable in software. Steelseries doesn’t attempt to imagine every game should have a separate profile, so out of the box there is just one profile. If you add other profiles, you can select what program triggers them. I don’t use this feature, but you might find it less baffling than some of the more well known brands software.

    So how does it game? Very well. In fact, this is the sort of mouse that I could see being bought in bulk for tournaments or small OEMs, as it's cheap, but also effective. Steelseries is also a pretty well respected brand in the gaming world, and this product is a great trickle down entry level mouse.

    Until recently I was the owner of a Sensei Raw mouse. That mouse disappointed me in the long run, turning into a sticky mess. The plastic of the Rival 3 won’t suffer from that fate, but will probably get shiny over time (I believe this is ABS), which won’t affect most players. Overall, I feel like this mouse is a huge step up from the Sensei Raw of yesteryear, even if it targets a different market. It’s staggering how good this $30 mouse is.

    Overall, I have to give a glowing recommendation for the Rival 3. It’s a solid mouse, and a bargain at its asking price of $30. Just 5 years ago, it seemed like a mouse like this would fetch double that easily at MSRP. It's hard not to love this mouse unless you are a serious palming user with large hands. Most users will find this mouse a great, if simple, fit to their hand. If you’re looking for a starter mouse, try this - and you may just find it's your forever mouse.

    Great entry level gaming mouse.

    First of all, remember this mouse costs about $30.

    Having said that, it has more features than I expected.

    This is definitely just for right-handed people, so if you are left-handed, this is NOT the mouse for you.

    It is also on the small side if you have large hands like I do but it is still usable.

    It is also light.

    I have not deducted stars for the reasons above because all in all it is a very functional and attractive gaming mouse.

    When you get it, please visit: steelseries.com/engine to download the application that allows customization.

    Once you have installed the software you will be able to fully customize the lighting, sensitivity, ETC.

    The packaging the mouse arrived was as small as possible and made of recyclable materials.

    If I had to gripe about something it would be that the cable although long enough for most uses feels "cheap", unlike my other mice that have braided cables and feel more substantial.

    So if you are gaming on a budget, definitely consider this mouse.

    Even though it is wired, I will keep in in my laptop backpack to use while travelling.

    Best Buy at this price point!

    THE BREAKDOWN:

    The packaging was very basic and to be honest if you are going to cut costs this is the place to do it.

    The design and feel of the mouse felt excellent to me. The mouse feels almost weightless and I believe it weighs in at 77 grams. The cord is not braided like most high end brands but it is a rubber material. Honestly, I like the cable because it is not plastic feeling but more durable rubber feeling. The mouse itself was not super smooth/slick if you will but more like a slight textured feel to give grip. The left and right primary buttons felt like they had grip as well. Another thing to note is that the click sound wasn’t a sharp click it was more like a dull thud if you will. I personally found this to be better than the sharper click. Next, is the scroll wheel. I found the scroll wheel to be super grippy and very precise. The last button on the top is the profile changer button. This button can switch between 5 different profiles and works as intended. The last two buttons are on the left side of the mouse. The forward facing and rear facing buttons. I also found them to work as intended. However if you have large hands like myself I found using the side buttons a little more labor intensive. The overall shape of the mouse I thought was great but again I have large hands so it could have been slightly larger for me.

    The initial setup was easy, just plug and play but to get the lighting to work in a specific way you have to download the Steelseries software. The software was easy to find, download and install.

    Once you have the software installed you can set 3 different lighting zones. You can set them individually or sync them all together. If you like to customize lights then this mouse is for you. Especially at this price range.

    The buttons are also customizable in the software. I personally do not use this feature but it is available for those that do.

    PRO’s:

    -TrueMove Core

    -6 programmable buttons

    -Excellent rubbery and accurate scroll wheel

    -Save poling rate, key binds and up to 5 CPI’s directly on the mouse

    -Customizable lighting

    CON’s:

    -If you have larger hands the side buttons may be an issue

    SUMMARY:

    Overall, I feel that this product worked very well and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this. I think for the price point on this mouse everyone should have one!

    Great FPS Mouse

    The SteelSeries Rival 3 Wired Gaming Mouse is a great intro level mouse with a lot of features.

    Pros:

    * Sleek design. It has subtle RGB lighting along the bottom outside edge as well as the logo which can be customized using the SteelSeries software. The software is easy to use and allows for customization such as of lighting, sensitivity, and setting up profiles.

    * Ergonomic. The mouse is slightly smaller than some of the other mouses I have used which I prefer since I use a claw style grip. It is lightweight and glides nicely along the mouse pad. For me, an ergonomic mouse is an absolute must as it allows for prolonged gaming sessions with less hand fatigue and discomfort.

    * Responsive. The right and left click give just the right amount of feedback. The side buttons (two) are well placed and easy to access. The overall mouse movement is very consistent,

    Cons:

    * CPI (Counts Per Inch) button. The CPI button does not have a light or other indicator to let you know what setting you are on. Not a deal breaker but would be nice to see in future iterations.

    * Cord. It would be really nice to see a braided cord.

    * Middle mouse scroll wheel. This mouse lacks a free spinning scroll wheel option. While not necessarily needed for gaming it would add to the ergonomic aspect of this mouse.

    Overall, the SteelSeries Rival 3 is a great mouse at a great price. I have enjoyed using it and highly recommend it.

    Fantastic Gaming Mouse on a Budget

    Gaming mice can be very expensive. If you are looking for a well functioning wired gaming mouse, this is an excellent option.

    Pros:

    - Easy set-up - plug and play! To fully customize settings and program macros you will need to download the "SteelSeries Engine".

    - The scroll wheel has excellent texture and works very well.

    - It is designed and contoured to be used by both left and right-handed users.

    - Accuracy was excellent. I always prefer wired to wireless mice as I feel there is always better accuracy and no lag.

    - The lighting looks really cool, kind of like a car with underglow features.

    - Lightweight and easy to move around smoothly

    - Excellent price for the performance and features

    Cons:

    - None

    This is an all-around fantastic mouse at a budget price. Unless you are an extremely competitive gamer and want something really high end with more than 6 buttons to customize, this is a great option for you.

    Excellent choice for gaming

    This mouse has all the necessities for a gaming mouse. I play mostly FPS games so it works well for that. The mouse wheel is super smooth and nice and wide so you have more surface area for your finger. With the Logitech software its super easy to customize the LED's to your liking and macros if you use them. Highly recommended and the price is right.

    Nice and colorful. Great add on to gaming PCs

    Very nice color changing gaming mouse, and is a nice add on for an RGB keyboard or a gaming Laptop with RGB keys.

    This really is a replacement mouse for my desktop Mac mini computer, as our old one was sticky and worn out, and buttons didnt click.

    So unboxed and plugged this in, and works nicely. And the cord management helps with the Velcro strap. The lower middle button as I have tested, changes the pointer movement speed; 4 levels and I keep it at 3-4.

    I don’t game much on my computer as I have a PS4 for that anyway, but I do have the old school Quake 4 game.

    So as I played with the keyboard and mouse combination, I do see it now how this lower middle button works and helps with gaming for turning speed.

    I haven’t experimented with the two side buttons on the left, but I definitely know they’re able to be assigned.

    Though I may be using this mouse for normal use, and not much gaming, yet (maybe when I get a faster power Mac in the future), the multi buttons are a great feature.

    I think the RGB lighting may contribute well to a color changing screen saver; for instance Flurry on the Mac.

    And Logitech is a brand that never disappoints, as I have used many keyboards and mice and webcams by them. This by far is an excellent quality brand.

    Upgrade from Prodigy

    Higher DPI capacity than prodigy. It’ll take getting used to but it’s for sure a good upgrade. Lightweight and fits in my hand good. The software to make custom DPI settings isn’t complicated either.

    Best wireless mouse on the market

    Logitech has pushed the boundaries of wireless gaming mouse. It's only 80g, long battery life, and the overall design is fantastic. I heard many users complain about the left and right click being overlapped, but that was only a problem on the older version of G Pro wireless. You can contact Logitech for a replacement for the new version that the issue has been fixed.

    Excellent support by Hunter. He found things that I needed that made by new computer work better for me. I could not be more pleased or more impressed with his knowledge and professionalism

    great mouse

    I ran into problems with my wireless logitech and decided to go wired. This model was suggested by the Best Buy associate and I have to say I could not have been given a better recommendation. Although this mouse is made to gain the attraction of gamers, my use is heavy excel work and could not be happier. the feel and touch of the mouse is outstanding. I have to admit I was amused when I saw the lit G.......yes I am old enough to have had an original C7, one might laugh when looking at the logitech C7 but back then it was the best....just like the G is today. Good Buy, well worth the money

    Still one of the greatest shapes on the market

    The original G Pro with its "egg" shape originally debuted in 2016, with the updated G Pro Hero releasing in 2018. To this day it is still one of the best shaped mice on the market, with a great weight, even if more recent mice are focused on weighing less. In fact, I would say that even though mice are getting much lighter, many companies are forgetting about shapes and getting too caught up in the ultralight department. The only mouse that is on the level or higher than this mouse for shape and comfort is currently the Roccat Kone Pure Ultra, another amazing mouse.

    This mouse is a steal for the price, and if you don't care as much about the HERO sensor the G203 is the exact same mouse for around $30-40. This mouse is the real masterpiece created by Logitech.

    Great entry level gaming mouse

    The Logitech G series has always been a good line in the way of PC gaming. The G703 offers a way to keep your battle station crisp and clean via a wireless mouse all without losing any of that input time. With added addition of lightspeed Logitech is claiming a 1ms input lag. Hopefully this review will help to clear the air as to rather or not this may be the right set up for you.

    First off let me talk about what you can expect to see right out of the box. You will receive the wireless mouse, usb adapter, wireless receiver, 10g weight and the braided micro usb cable which is necessary for lightspeed mode to be engaged. First impressions of the mouse is that it appears like a ordinary mouse. Its very simplistic but at the same time very clean looking. It comes with 6 programmable buttons and adjustable RGB lighting for the logo and scroll wheel. Logitech provides a free app to download to your PC which allows for pretty decent customization. I won't go in to full detail of the apps function but expect to see such functions as RGB controls, button mapping, DPI customization, Macro set up and much more. There are a few gaming pre-sets built in to the app such as League of Legions mapping. The top button button on the mouse near the scroll wheel can be customized but comes set as your DPI adjustment. There are four preset adjustments which are as follows 400,800,1600 and for the quick response 3200. DPI settings can be changed through the app to fit your play style so don't think that these settings are fixed as they are not. For those new to gaming DPI in a simple form is basically mouse senstivity or speed. The higher the number the faster or more response your mouse will be. Logitech also provided a 10 gram weight which can be added to the mouse to give it a more weighted feel as well.

    Lets talk about its main purpose which is gaming and its wireless function and stability. The two main games that i like playing are mmo's and loot shooters. In the way of mmo's mouse speed is very critical to me as im constantly switching between targets and my utilities. The added side button mapping helps take the load of having unmapped utilies that i can now use in conjunction with the ability to adjust my DPI on the fly given my current situation. For example if im grinding for materials then i turn my DPI down as its not really necessary for such quick response however when its time for me to run a raid i'll crank my DPI up to max and utilize my mouse button mapping to access my utility skills. When it comes to loot shooters such as The Division 2 i expect very quick response times with quick access to my utilities such as flash bangs and grenades. Being a wireless mouse my biggest concern has always been response time and the bluetooth being interrupted by all my other wireless sets up that i have. I have to say im greatly impressed and never once experienced any issues or lag. Even with lightspeed engage i honestly did not notice any difference between input lag. If it did improve anything, it wasn't enough for me to even notice. The scroll wheel feels very nice and responsive to the touch. What i really like was each scroll of the wheel felt firm but yet smooth and each indentation gave it a better feel and pinpoint accuracy in my opinion. It helped to eliminate any over or under scrolling for whatever function you may have set up for it.

    Here's the bottom line. This set up is perfect for anyone looking to save some money or get in to key and mouse PC gaming. The fact that you only have 6 keys to map means that the mouse will not become too overwhelming to set up for new gamers. More experienced gamers may want to opt out for the 9 series for the added button mapping available to the mouse. For me this is actually a perfect fit for me as l like to switch between mouse and keys to a Astro gaming wireless controller. The buttons are smooth and very responsive and the added app that is provided allows for some pretty good deep customization. The mouse is light weight and is built to be ergonomic to fit comfortably in your hand. Unless your looking for more button mapping this mouse is sure to please just about everyone out there.

    Best Wireless Series : Lightspeed

    Pros-

    -Comes with 25k hero sensor and Logitech Lightspeed Technology

    (On the box it says 16k, but the sensor is upgradable through the software)

    -Great size

    -Fits all grips. Preferably palm, but claw works fine.

    -Great design

    -Very larger side buttons (Hard to miss when you try to click)

    -It is the same software and sensor as the other lightspeed mouses. This one happens to be cheaper because it doesn't have all the extra buttons and extra-long battery life.

    -1:1 tracking and no delay. It is 1ms. Feels better than the wired g403 and the majority of available wired mice (Based on price range).

    -Easy to use the software.

    Cons-

    -Not enough people trust Lightspeed. It's the most reliable technology for wireless mice and best performing.

    -Battery life is shorter than the other lightspeed mice, but it's not that hard to go to sleep and charge it.

    -More on the heavy side for those who enjoy lightweight. I don't mind it personally because I love mice when they are around 80-95 grams.

    A great, cheaper, alternative to the Logi G Pro

    Fast, a solid weight (not too heavy nor too featherweight like the current trend of gaming mice), responsive, insanely long-lasting battery with USB-charging (who uses batteries in 2021, right?)... if you have slightly bigger hands and want to save about $40 or so compared to the Logitech G Pro Wireless, this is the mouse for you. 11/10 recommend. Wireless is the way to go.

    Great Mouse

    Great mouse. Went to Best Buy looking to buy the G Pro Wireless. They had a display with all different mice (Razer, Logitech, Steel Series, Corsair, etc) that you could try. I HATED the G Pro Wireless but LOVED the shape of the G703. Bought it immediately. Been using it for about two weeks now and it’s awesome!

    Comfortable and Reliable

    Logitech has always been a go-to for me for mice, but I haven’t used one of their gaming mice until this one and I’m impressed. I love how simple this mouse is; it has just the right amount of buttons and doesn’t make you do any gymnastics with your fingers to get to them. The shape is really comfortable and fits my hand perfectly. Thanks to the sensor moving the mouse feels like an extension of my own hand and the wireless connection has been rock solid. The buttons have just the right amount of click to them and I especially like how smooth and quiet the scroll wheel is. Battery life has also been excellent and so far my usage is going to get me a week or more without needing to charge. The software is well put together and offers a lot of options for reconfiguring the button and sensitivity settings - definitely an improvement over the software I was previously using for my Corsair mouse. The lighting options are neat and Lightsync will synchronize the lighting for certain games, though it’s not very noticeable as my hand covers the lighting most of the time.

    Miscellaneous Items:

    -The mouse comes with a removable weight that fits into the bottom of the mouse. I didn’t notice much difference either way using it, but I left mine in because I like the extra heft.

    -Logitech makes a mat called the PowerPlay that will charge the mouse even as you use it. It also houses a wireless receiver for the mouse so you don’t need to plug the receiver in. I’m strongly considering getting that, though I haven’t made the jump just yet.

    -I can definitely see the Lightsync options being more useful when incorporating a keyboard that has it as well, but they mostly seem to be there to make the mouse look cool.

    well worth it so happy with this mouse

    Corsair makes the best quality gaming mice that i have ever owned.I have had so many mice over the years and when i found this mouse with all the led settings and the one main thing i wanted being the sniper button i bought this one and got another one just to have a back up.This is the best mouse i have ever owned. I did have a Ratte mouse for about 6 years and that was a mouse i dearly missed but i replaced it with this mouse and it did not disappoint at all and i am very picky when it comes to my mice. If you get this mouse you will be a happy camper. It uses ICUE software for the led color settings easy to use.

    Awesome Functional Mouse for Artist/Gamer!!!!

    This mouse is just what I need. Nothing to complain about. Just make sure to install the iCue software and set the mouse up to your preferred sensitivity.

    I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple but functional mouse for a medium sized hand and want a fast way to set it up.

    Excellent mouse for grip and comfort and gaming!

    The Corsair Nightsword has a great shape to it. I have large hands and it fits nicely. The thumbrest design is great as it prevents your thumb from dragging on the mousepad. The thumbrest is concave in shape allowing you to lift and move the mouse very easily with minimal effort. The rubber on the opposite side where the pinky finger rest also provides a nice grip. The top of the mouse is more of a soft touch plastic with a treaded design for added grip. The left and right click buttons are a matte finish separate from the rest of the body which is nice. The button layout is pretty good for the most part. The DPI Sniper button is reachable but does not sit directly under the thumb which in this case I like so I do not accidentally press it. The Corsair Ironclaw Wireless has larger buttons making them easier to press although the ones on the Nightsword are still good. The scroll wheel feels nice with discernable steps. I really enjoy the fit and feel of this mouse better than the Ironclaw for FPS games. The RGB lighting has a very cool layout on this mouse. It is their best looking mouse. This mouse is very good for FPS games and has all the customizable weights you need. Overall I think Corsair has a winner with this mouse. Can't go wrong with it. Very comfortable and natural feel in the hand. Highly Recommended.
