Logitech has been making mice for years and it is quite popular among gamers. Recently, the company launched
Logitech G102 LIGHTSYNC Gaming Mouse in India. This gaming mouse is priced at Rs. 1999 and promises a good gaming experience. It wasn’t a costly one, so I decided to buy and try. In case you are thinking to buy this gaming mouse, read this Logitech G102 LIGHTSYNC review.

Logitech G102 LIGHTSYNC looks almost similar to Logitech G102 PRODIGY launched a few years back. This successor basically comes with improved internals while keeping the design the same. It has a smooth plastic construction and has a symmetrical design. The shape of the mouse makes it comfortable and you won’t feel any discomfort even after hours of gaming. It is not ambidextrous. If you need an ambidextrous mouse, check other gaming mice.

There’s a Logitech Logo and a bright LED strip for RGB. The “G” logo and RGB strip support 16.8 million colors. You can adjust the color and light effects. The mouse also has 6 programmable buttons. All the buttons feel great and offer satisfying feedback. Thumb buttons are also at a proper position. The mouse wheel is stiff and has a rubber grip for proper grip and scroll.

This is a medium-sized mouse. It weighs 85g and features a 2m soft rubber, non-braided USB cable. You cannot adjust mouse weight. If you need that, look somewhere else. But I don’t think one should look for adjustable weight in a gaming mouse in this price segment.

The mouse has an ideal weight, so not too much resistance when flicking or dragging. It packs a Mercury sensor that is one of the best for gaming. Logitech G102 LIGHTSYNC offers DPI sensitivity from 200 to 8000DPI. That’s more than enough.  The most notable feature is the reporting time that is 1000 Hz. It means the mouse sends location data to the system 1000 times a second. It means it 8 times faster than a standard mouse. This helps a lot in gaming and gives an edge in competitive fps games.

The mouse sensor is quite responsive and I felt improvement in my gaming movements. Didn’t notice latency or input lag. I mostly play Counter Strike Global Offensive and Valorant competitive games that require accurate but fast movement. Found this mouse really good,

You also need Logitech’s G HUB software to get the most out of this mouse. This software lets you adjust DPI and change the report rate. The different game needs different mouse sensitivity, so DPI can be adjusted according to that. This software also lets you assign. You can also set 5 different DPI to scroll through using the dedicated DPI button of the mouse

You can also set the RGB light effects of the mouse using G Hub. If you have other Logitech gaming devices like a gaming keyboard, headset, or speaker, you can also sync the RGB lighting across the devices using G-Hub. You can also customize it to react to the games you are playing. That means the light will flash or change color depending on game icons.

The G Hub also lets you assign keys to different actions. You can also even add the launch of an application on a key of your choice. You can set to execute different commands on a mouse key press or even record a macro to execute on a keypress. These things can help a lot if used properly.

Wrap Up

Logitech G102 Lightsync is an impressive mouse. It has a comfortable design, capable sensor, and good looking RGB on it. The G-Hub software gives you plenty of customization options. If you do not want to invest much in a gaming mouse Logitech G102 Lightsync can be a good choice.
