Logitech is known for its high-end Gaming Mouses. We are here with the starting segment of Logitech’s 100 series G102 Lightsync and Prodigy. A budget-friendly gaming mouse that is suitable for all your gaming needs.
Whether you are a hardcore gamer or casual gamer, Logitech G102 performs exceptionally well for long gaming hours.
I have been using G102 for the last one year. In this blog, I will be sharing my Logitech G102 review in terms of performance and durablity. But first, let’s take a look at the features of the Logitech G102.
Difference between G102 Prodigy & Lightsync
G102 Light sync and prodigy are almost similar models. However, Light sync is the newer version released by Logitech. The only difference between them is the RGB as Light sync supports a bolt of synchronized multiple light zones.
RGB lighting on Light sync has a multicolor wave. On the other hand, the Prodigy model can only have a single color RGB at once.
Besides, Logitech has also claimed that they have fixed the double click issues which many players have reported for the Prodigy model.
Features of Logitech G102
- Sensor: Mercury Sensor
- Weight: 85 gm
- DPI: 200- 8000 Customizable
- Buttons: 6 programmable buttons
- RGB: 16.8 million customizable lightning
- Dimensions: 11.7 x 6.2 x 3.8 cm
In terms of performance, G102 stands tall as the mouse delivers a great performance while playing FPS games like CSGO, Valorant, Apex legends, etc.
It is equipped with a mercury sensor, which performs exceptionally despite the fact that other premium mouse-like G502 comes with a hero sensor. I haven’t faced any problems in tracking or flicking with this mouse.
The mouse is more suitable for claw grip players. If you have a palm grip, you may find it difficult to adapt your grip as it’s fit properly for small to medium hand grips.
Moreover, with a featherweight of just 85 gm, your gaming sessions would be more handy and comfortable. If you are into FPS games, then G102 is the best budget gaming mouse in the price segment under 30$.
The design looks minimalistic and symmetrical as the mouse’s body is quite sturdy, and the plastic quality doesn’t feel cheap at all.
Unlike other mouses like G402, G502, the mouse is symmetrical in shape and easy to adapt for new players. The wire is long enough and doesn’t come with a braided cable. However, it’s still a decent deal for the price.
The scroll wheel and other programmable buttons are easily accessible on hands while clicking the mouse. Therefore, you won’t face any issues like accidentally clicking side buttons or scroll wheel.
Some users have reported problems regarding double-click issues for this mouse. But, you don’t have to worry about that as the mouse covers 2 years of warranty. Make sure to register your product on the Logitech website.
You can easily claim a replacement if your mouse gets stopped working for any reason within that time period. All you need to do is register your product on Logitech’s official website.
Customizable DPI & RGB
Shift your DPI levels from 200 to 8000 DPI with on-board memory, which means you don’t have to configure your settings again while using your mouse on any other PC. You can change DPI levels anytime with the middle button.
The RGB lighting looks bright and premium as it shows the Logitech logo and a strip on the side. You can customize lightning with 16.8 million colors and mix them up for crazy animation.
Furthermore, you can assign system commands or shortcut keys directly from Logitech G HUB for weapons switching or push to talk, etc. I’ve never come across any issue like unregistered clicks or anything as clicks are always smooth.
Let us look at the Pros and Cons from Logitech G102 Review:
|Accurate sensor||No Braided cable|
|Good for small to medium hands||Simple design|
|Great for claw grip players||Double-click issues|
An affordable and simple gaming mouse packed up with all the essential features without compromising performance and build quality. Tactical feedback is responsive, and there are no problems with tracing as the sensor is precise enough for any multiplayer game.
However, it’s mostly likely players may come across with double-click issues after a year of usage, which is common for any mouse. You can always claim a replacement within 2 years of your purchase if any issues show up. Overall, it’s still worth every penny for the price.
