From our point of view, the best wireless gaming mouse is the Logitech 502 Lightspeed. However, it looks more expensive, which usually comes in at $ 149.99. However, if you are willing to try your luck with a refurbished unit, you can save a lot of money.
It is for sale at Woot (owned by Amazon) for $ 81.99. That is, $ 68 below its list price, and yes, a new unit is sold with the full MSRP quite often. Check your activated price tracking history CamelCamelCamel (an excellent resource for researching if a discount is a real deal), Amazon had it on the list for $ 149.99 from mid-May until this past weekend (currently enabled sold for $ 123.99).

This is our best choice among wireless gaming mice because it works great and is comfortable to use during long stretches. If you’re good at trying your luck with a makeover (Woot offers a 90-day warranty), you can get a deep discount.See offer
Buying refurbished ones is always a dice roll, so this should be taken into account. Woot's description of what qualifies as refurbishment is "from the buyer's returns and products whose defects have been repaired by professionals, to damaged packaging and discontinued items."
You can look around the web and find complaints about the G502 developing a double-click issue. Anyway, that's not something I found on the G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB, which I've been using as a daily controller for four years (I bought it in November 2017). If you press the trigger, Woot offers a 90-day warranty to test it.
The latest version of the G502 Lightspeed offered here features a Hero sensor updated with 25,000 DPI, compared to the 16K sensor of the model that revised a couple of years ago. It also has 11 programmable buttons and a hyper-fast scroll wheel that you can set up to scroll by steps or rotate freely (I find the latter very useful when scrolling long websites). And of course, RGB lighting is part of the package.
In short, this is an exceptional gaming mouse at a great price.
