Logitech G203 Lightsync on a desk

The Logitech G203 Lightsync is our top pick for the best gaming mouse on a budget. Now you can get it on sale for $19.88 while Black Friday is in full swing, a discount of 50% from the original MSRP.

Logitech’s G203 might be an inexpensive mouse, but it still covers all the basics, and then some. There’s an 8,000 DPI sensor, six buttons in total (including the two main buttons at the top), customizable RGB lightning, and the ability to set custom macros. Logitech’s software for its modern gaming accessories isn’t great, but it gets the job done, and it works on both Windows and macOS.

This budget gaming mouse covers all the essentials, like an 8,000 DPI sensor and customizable lights.

The compact design of the G203 could be a downside to some people, but it’s still large enough for comfortable play with most sizes of hands. This is also a wired mouse, and you can’t (easily) replace the cable if something happens to it.

Despite its limitations, the Logitech G203 is great value for the price, and it earned a 9/10 in our Logitech G203 Lightsync review. I also bought one for myself a few months ago as a travel mouse, and it has worked well with both my desktop PC and MacBook Air. However, I do have to remember to bring a USB Type-C adapter or USB-C Hub, because the mouse’s cable has a Type-A connector and my laptop is only Type-C.
