    So I'm currently using some cheapo wired Corsair Harpoon which I picked up a while ago, however, I've been in the market for a while looking for something wireless mainly due to the wires really. So my question is, are wireless mice still a no go when it comes to input lag whilst playing most FPS or would I really notice that much difference?

    Thanks in advance!

    Wireless mice have gotten just as good as wired in the past little while, any of the Logitech lightspeed ones are basically wired mice in terms of lag.

    I can't stand wired mice, it would always get caught on items on my desk, or cause friction. The razer wireless mice are also something to look for, although I had the cheaper razer basilisk hyperspeed and I would have this problem where the mouse would sometimes not wake from sleep. I haven't had this issue with the ultimate edition however

    A good wireless mouse for sure, they're basically on par with wired these days, I could never go back since getting my G305.

    Been thinking about this myself, used a Deathadder for years and need to replace. Tempted by a wireless one but its like double the price.

    Been quite happy with my G402. I had to replace the microswitches for the thumb buttons (Logitech were cheap and used crappy switches there), but I've found I prefer wired mice.

    Mind you, the last wireless I used was an original MX revolution (?) I believe.

    Currently using a Logitech G pro wireless and it's been working almost perfectly, except for a bit of double clicking on a side button, but i have been using this mouse for a few years already. Looking to upgrade to the pro wireless superlight since it's almost 20g lighter than the pro wireless

    Seems that Pro Superlight X is it has been getting some rave reviews and used competitively too. Guess the gap between wired/wireless is almost nothing now

    yeah, there's basically no gap between wired and wireless now. But a lot of pro teams are sponsored by Logitech as well so that will sway how many people use that mouse. But reviews from techtubers, streamers, etc. for the mouse are also very good!

    Again if you're just considering grabbing a wireless mouse for the first time, check out the G305, the price is a steal XD

    I have made an offer on a B Grade Deathadder Pro. If it gets accepted it’s closed the gap on price difference and I’ll be happy to have a go at wireless for that :p

    That does look like a steal for that price, I currently use the MX Master 2x for work and I've never had a problem! Thanks :D

    Is there a wireless keyboard to go with the G305?

    Thanks

    I don't think there's one that would come in a bundle with the G305. But I would say the Logitech G613 or the more premium G915 (they do this in a TKL as well).

    Agreed. Personally G502 for the win and my grip style. Still got both the corded and wireless versions of this.

    I’ve got the Glorious Model O wireless and only play FPS games.

    I’ve never noticed any lag. The battery life is insane and it’s super light so really easy to chuck around the mouse pad

    How did you find the battery life on the Model O?

    The battery life is insane. Probably charge it once a month
