Logitech is making a big play for the gaming space as its a booming market.
Their ‘G’ range is generally a good bet and there are some cheaper options than this, but we want the best and the G903 Lightspeed is definitely that.
Its ambidextrous so can be used by either hand. With its two customizable buttons on either side, it can be swapped depending on your preference.
It weighs around 100grams which is a lot lighter than its cousins in the range.
Its battery life is around a week of game time, but it also has a really cool Logitech POWERPLAY technology where it will charge whilst on the mousemat.
The POWERPLAY mat is £109.99, which means the bills are adding for this hardware.
There is a slightly cheaper non-lightspeed version in the same range which has a much worse battery life but is about 30% cheaper.
Best Cheaper Option
- 16000 DPI sensitivity
- 7 programmable buttons
- Cheaper than rivals
- £35.40 from Amazon
If you look in any lists for good cheaper Mouse options you will see Razer’s name.
They seem to have cornered the market for reproducing competitive tech but for the lower price point.
This the mouse often used by high profile streamer DrDisRespect. You can see it has a lot of the same abilities as the others on the list in the for a cheaper price.
It has slightly fewer customisable buttons and doesn't have the HERO sensor that Logitech promotes. It also isn't an ambidextrous option - it's right-hand only.
Even with its rubber grips to the side, It weighs around 105grams so it is actually lighter than some competitors.
Aside from standard mouse functionality and 2 side buttons, you also get 2 DPI switches which can be connected to any key function you desire.
