Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse $149 Delivered @ Amazon AU

750

Was browsing for a new mouse and came across this on Amazon. It looks to be the all time lowest according to camelx3.

Quick search from staticice shows Umart @ $194. I think Mwave @ $179 is open box.

For those with access to discounted Amazon gift cards could probably save a bit more. OzBargain Discounted eGift Cards Page

    I got the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse (linked below) last time it was ~$60 and it has been great (purchased October 29th). When using 2.4Ghz instead of Bluetooth on the mouse, I virtually notice no difference compared to a wired mouse. Only annoying thing about it is that it doesn't have a built-in rechargeable battery, so I had to buy Eneloop Rechargeable batteries (and luckily I had an old charger around).

    The best thing about it, and it appears the G502 above has it too, but not as pronounced, is the part extending on the left side where your thumb rests on it, instead of resting on the mousepad (creates even less resistance, and mouse just glides on the pad).

      Give me a mouse that takes a single AA battery any day of the week. I can swap it over if I forgot to charge, and I'm not worried about the life of the mouse being cut short because the battery died.

        Get the Logitech wireless charging mousepad and you wont have to worry about it.

          Why? I don't want a power transmitting device literally under my arm for hours on end.

          You might say it's a tinfoil hat I'm wearing.. I say it's an unknown. But when we readily have AA battery technology we can do better.

          A battery that is being constantly trickle charged will wear out sooner. It might be worth it to you for the convenience. Personally I find being able to change over a standard battery much more convenient. I have a G604 and it's great! I have owned it for 2 or 3 months and changed the battery just once. and I literally use it for hours daily.

          •  

            @syousef: Assuming it’s designed the same, I find my g602 was too heavy, but you can use just one battery at a time instead of 2 to reduce the weight.

            •  

              @ATangk: Could it be the type of mouse pad you're using, or do you often lift your mouse while using it?
              I've got the 604 (apparently same weight as the 602) and it just glides along my mousepad from light touch, never considered it as heavy.

              •  

                @sobes: With 2 batteries it was too heavy, with one it was alright, but I tend to use slightly smaller mouse like the g502 and enjoy using the anywhere series.

      can you use razer mice completely without software?

      hearing good reviews like yours (and the crazy price when its on sale) is very tempting but I have ptsd from old razer synapse software which was the cause of like 70% of the issues with my pc. I believe their software has improved but i've since taken on a software-free approach to my peripherals. Can i achieve that with your mouse?

      • +1 vote

        Yeah, with the one I have. I installed the software, set up all my dpi settings and such on it (they save on the mouse I think), and then after that uninstall and disable it from startup.

        On another system I had Windows Update install their software, so I left it on, disabled auto-update within the razer program, then disabled it from windows startup and system services startup so it doesn't impact on anything.

        Yeah Razer software is not as bad as it used to be, but still could cause micro-stuttering in games, etc because of background usage.

  •  

    Thanks I missed this price during the Black Friday deals (Scorptec), and have been using a MX Master as a gaming mouse for a while now. I am looking forward to going back to a proper gaming mouse

  •  

    Is this the new MX Master 2s? My 2s scroll wheel is going a bit flakey so might been another mouse.

    • +2 votes

      Hm… the G502 is a gaming oriented mouse, MX Master's are more for office stuff.
      You'd probably want a MX Master 3. I have both, and I much prefer the MX Master 3. Battery life is 10 fold superior

      •  

        Thanks. Do you mean the MX3 is better than the G502 or better than the MX 2s?

  •  

    Ive got the wired version. Very good mouse. Highly recommend.

  •  

    Serious question - what does a $150 mouse do that a $50 mouse doesn't do? Im an xbox gamer so happy with controller - but the son plays on PC…

    • +2 votes

      Well one way to look at it is what does the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 costing $249.95 do that your regular Xbox controller does not?

      •  

        Totally agree.. I use the stocky cheap controller… mate bought a used one of those fancy controllers and didnt see any advantage.

      •  

        Well the elite has paddles… its game changing if you come from a regular controller.
        What do these more expensive mouse provide?

        •  

          RGB lights mate. Make your mouse move faster.

          In seriousness there are a couple highlight features, most have extra side buttons. Game changing if you come from a regular mouse. Then DPI settings for different forms of gaming, adjustable weights for better control.

          •  

            @Menzoberranzan: Interesting, maybe I need to invest. However, next problem is a $50 gaming mouse vs a $150 which are ostensibly the same

            Rather than the xbox Elite, I got the power fusion pro and its night and day vs regular controller (due to the paddles). Improved me from a piss poor CoD player to an avg player. Cheaper than Elite, same features.

            •  

              @GoodQuestion: End of the day it depends on how much you are willing to spend. I personally think $150 is too much and wireless is not important to me so I go for a more reasonably priced gaming mouse that is wired. I got my wired G502 years ago round $70.

      Allows you to beat the scalpers and buy a PS5

    •  

      Better tracking, better polling rate, more buttons.

      Only really needed in fast paced shooters where you need to develop muscle memory and fast reaction speeds. Especially for sniping.

    •  

      Just to put it simply - it could be - smoother on a surface, lower latency, better software, easier more precise clicks, lighter. etc.

    •  

      Outside of what others have said, I think major difference is whether they are a wireless mouse or not.
      Since if you look at the deals that popped up on Ozbargain, wired G502 was around $60~$70.

      And if you ask me whether I want to pay extra $100 for it to be wireless, I would say yes.
      Because wires are cumbersome and annoying. I have heard bungees help, but eh, I like the convenience far far more.

      I think lighter options become available (not necessarily saying lighter mice are better) if you increase your budget, but eh, never got too much into mice.

  •  

    Had this but after six months developed clicking issues where it was extremely noisy. Refunded and got Corsair dark pro se as works with qi wireless charger.

    •  

      I've got the Dark Core Pro SE also, love the qi charging. Does yours skip around at all? Mine does it semi frequently and it drives me insane…

    Is this better than Logitech G Pro?

    • +1 vote

      Different shape, weight etc, many would consider G Pro superior

    • +1 vote

      Better is subjective. Lots of buttons which is good, a bit on the heavier side as G502 weight is minimum 120g, but can be added to and adjusted balance depending on placement of additional weights if that's important to you. Would be typically more suitable for RPGs/MOBAs.

      I'll presume you're talking about G Pro Wireless? That is a more FPS-focused mouse with weight of only 83g, less customisable buttons, but great sensor and finish. Used by many pro gamers so that for what you will.

      I recently upgraded from a g700 (150g) to g302 (99g) and highly recommend it for FPS - it's like a budget G Pro, and only cost ~$75au, instead of the ~$185+ the g pro retails at. I'm not THAT pro a gamer, ymmv. You can also use an AAA to AA adapter and get the weight down to 83g. I found the sensor was a huge upgrade from the one in my old g700. Battery lasts ages too, and I prefer that I can swap a AA instead of having to charge an in-built battery that will gradually die. I haven't had to change the single AA since before Christmas when I got this mouse, use it for work and game ~1hr most days.

      Plenty of mouse reviews if you want to dive deeper, this video review (amongst others of his) sold me on it:

      •  

        Thanks for explaining. I currently play more FPS (CS/Valo) now than MOBA so I’m in the market of getting a new mouse. I only have the SteelSeries Rival 3 which is a basic one but I not sure spending $150 on a mouse will make a difference and I’m not a pro anyway. But I’ll have a look on that G302.

        •  

          Ahh G305 I meant btw, the link was right but not my text.

          G302 is a different mouse, weird shape and wired. I don't think it has the lightspeed sensor either.

          Logitech's naming is confusing 😬

    Just a heads up that these suffer from a double click issue. I’ve had mine for about 6 months and the right click double clicks periodically (probably 1/500) now.

    •  

      Yea very flimsy clicker

    • +1 vote

      I think that's most of Logitech's mice. I think a lot of people point to Omron China switches for the cause, which apparently are worse than other micro switches in terms of lifespan.

      I genuinely avoided getting a Logitech mouse after 3 mice I had had double click issues, went with Razer. Then the middle click died on my Razer mouse.
      So I am back with Logitech, might go with Asus one next since switches in their mouse is not soldered and designed to be changed easily.

      •  

        That'd be right. Going to replace the Omrons with Kailh 4s in my mouse but appreciate that most people won't want to and should not have to on a new product.

        •  

          Yeah, I killed two of my mouse because I suck at soldering.

          •  

            @iridiumstem: Welp. Wish me luck.

            •  

              @turkz1: Just be gentle (I have heard that it's easier to burn the board on a mouse than say a mechanical keyboard), and have those weird arm thingy. I found it very difficult to work with the board without any ways to fix its position.

              Good luck :)

  •  

    I’ve got the wired version of this and it’s very nice. Also have the wireless G903 and G703 (and way too many MX Masters). I prefer the feel of the G703 but the scroll wheel is stuffed on that (common problem). G503 is nice but a watered down sculptured feeling compared to the MX Masters.
    Currently using G903 as my primary.

  •  

    I really recommend the G604 mouse, which surprisingly is a bit cheaper than this one (currently $120 at Umart).

    It's lightspeed wireless as well (no latency), has the Logitech scroll wheel (super useful feature), and IMO the design is much better - I think the "Gamer" style of neon lights and pointy panels is really gaudy, whereas the G604 is quite subtle and smooth.You could use it in the office and it wouldn't look out of place.

    The only con is that it isn't rechargeable and you have to put in a new AA battery when it runs out, but in reality that's never been a problem because the battery life is insane. Feels like a single AA battery lasts months even with frequent daily usage.

    Initially I thought spending ~$100+ on a mouse was overkill, but honestly I'm really really happy with the G604; if it ever broke I'd instantly buy another one to replace it.

    I recently purchased the wired version for $82.00

    Same price at BigW, but click/collect and in-store.

    reckon the best prices are via uk amazon when on specch

  •  

    Bought one last year, after 6 months I had to replace it with a MX Master 3 just couldn't gel with the lower profile.

    If they could update the G700s with better battery life and an updated laser I'd be happy.

  •  

    Never buying logitech mouse again. Went through 2 mice and both had developed a "double click" issue. Just ordered a SteelSeries for a change.

  •  

    Mine just arrived. Working great! Will be replacing my MX Master.

    Argh, fuming that I missed this. Hope it comes back soon.
