    I’ve been using the G Pro for the past year and love the shape so when I saw the G305, which is a wireless G Pro, I am very excited. I am a long-time user of ambidextrous mouse (coming from the original Logitech egg-shaped mouse, Steelseries’ Sensei/Kana, etc.). As opposed to the Razer Lancehead vs. its wireless version which I considered seriously, Logitech’s G305 DID NOT sacrifice sensor performance from the G Pro to my relief. It also sports a long battery life so spec wise, definitely everything I want in a mouse.How does it compare to the G Pro? Movement and precision feel the same. There are very slight differences in the buttons between my copies of G Pro and G305 — which I don’t consider problems/cons.- Middle click is more stiff to click on the G Pro. However, the scrolling is more fluid on G Pro.- Right/left clicks are slightly louder on G305. If I must qualify it, the G305 has a higher pitch- The 2 side buttons feel ever so slightly more recessed on the G305Using the Duracell AA battery that comes with the mouse, it weighs the mouse heavily toward the back. Switching to a Lithium AA battery lowers the weight but still heavier than the G Pro. With Lithium and taking the cover off, the mouse finally feels balanced. It actually feels ok to use without the cover. However, I will be using a Lithium AAA battery with AAA-to-AA holder to lower the weight and make the mouse balanced. That should make the G305 weigh/feel almost the same as the G Pro.This, is as perfect as a mouse as I can ask for after all these years.

    For 60$ this mouse is absolutely amazing. I am blown away, I really never thought that wireless would ever completely catch up with wired for gaming performance. I have been playing CS for so long that I started with a ball mouse and distinctly remember my first optical mouse. The wireless g305 is a revelation on a similar level. The sensor is, in a word, perfect. I can feel absolutely no difference between this mouse and my 3360 nixeus revel, 3310 zowie za12 and wired G Pro. I’ve played extensively with these and many other high end gaming mice with quality sensors and this G305 feels as good or better than any of them. The ambidextrous shape and slightly smaller than average mouse has always been my particular cup of tea and this mouse is exactly that. It’s also pretty lightweight. This is the perfect mouse for me. It may not tick all of your boxes like it does mine, but if you’re worried about the wireless sensor not stacking up, don’t. It’s flawless. Now if you don’t like ambidextrous mice or have giant bear paws for hands then maybe I could see this not being a fit for you. But if you’re like me and have been waiting a long time for a truly non compromising gaming mouse that’s wireless for an affordable price then congrats my friend, your wait is over. Go buy this thing right now. Truthfully I don’t know why anyone would pay 150 for the wireless G Pro when this one is just as good for less than half the price.

    As yet another G Pro user, I am extremely happy with this mouse, and will also be using that as a point of reference for this review.Build quality is excellent, feels sturdy, perfect weight for me (I actually welcome the couple extra grams of weight from the G-Pro, no need for those AAA – AA converters for me) I have absolutely no rattle, and the buttons feel great. No RGB on this mouse, which I’m perfectly fine with. The feet are slightly slimmer and longer than the G-Pro, and there’s also an additional small circular foot on the bottom, I think this does actually help quite a bit with the weight distribution as your hand is on the mouse.The left/right click feel as though there’s a slight bit more travel distance from the G-Pro, but overall very responsive and consistent. The thumb buttons have MUCH less resistance and are very light and also feel slightly more chiseled than the G-Pro. I also notice the switch of the bottom thumb button somehow feels angled better for clicking using the middle of your thumb. The scroll wheel is set deeper in the mouse and is scrolls clickier than the G-Pro, but will likely smooth out a bit over time. I saw some reports of it being hard to click – this is not the case for mine, it’s even easier than that of my worn-in G-Pro, and feel much nicer overall. The DPI button feels exactly the same as the G-Pro, just slightly smaller.The new Hero sensor is perfect. I cannot spot a single flaw, and while it can be extremely difficult to notice any difference between the PMW3366 and the Hero (especially considering wired vs wireless), I do definitely accept the claim that it is better.I can’t speak on the battery life yet, as I’m not 250 hours into a battery to tell you if that’s a true statistic or not, but I’ll edit later if it is something to groan about. Not much to say about software either – it works. If you’re familiar with Logitech software it’s about the same for all.All that said, if you like the shape of this mouse (G-Pro, 203/102, general small ambi mice), you’ll be happy with an upgrade to this – and yes, it IS an upgrade in my opinion.TLDR: Good mouse. Good sensor. 5/5.

    After having the g-pro for almost 2 years and seeing the advancements in the wireless industry it was only a matter of time before this legendary piece arrived. This combines the best senor they have with the best play style. Being an extremely talented competitive player on R6, CS:GO. League, Overwatch, I can say that this is one of the best mice you can have if you have small hands or play claw grip.After using an entire battery with the included one and then using a lithium, I would say the lithium is much better. Its lighter, lasts longer, and it balances the mouse better than a Duracell.The included dongle is small, fits inside the mouse and is convenient if you have a keyboard with a usb pass through.

    I’m not a gamer, but use precise mouse movements for work regarding heavy data analysis and engineering CAD. I got one for work since it doesn’t have any of the goofy “gamer” styling and loved it so much that I bought one for my home office.When it comes to wireless mice I was always wary about responsiveness and precision. This mouse is not only comfortable, it feels great in the hand. Somehow, the sensors make it as if it tracks like a wired mouse. The weight is balanced and glides well on mouse pad.After using this wireless mouse and really feeling the performance difference, I can never go back to regular mice again.

    Trying to find best mouse for online multiplayer fps games can be a struggle. So many choices and companies don’t really market with honesty. The 3 main things I look for are the shape of the mouse and click latency and sensor performance. This mouse covers all three.I’ve tested so many mouse. The sensor is important. CPI Variation is how accurate the mouse can perform moving at fast or slow pace. This mouse has an almost perfect CPI Variation. Same sensor as on the Logitech g pro wireless mouse that cost nearly 3x as much. It’s pretty much a cheaper version of that mouse.Click Latency is important also. These do have omron mechanical switches. Not as fast as the wired razer viper mini V2 opticals(6ms), but on par with gpro wireless at around 11ms. Unfortunately these will ultimately fail to doubleclicking issue, but can be replaced/fixed easily if you are tech savvy.Sensor performance is where Logitech beats Razer. The Hero sensor is the best sensor available. The orochi and viper mini fail here. Your shots will not be accurate depending on how fast or slow you move the mouse. I had to return the orochi for this reason. Could never get consistent scores in Aimlab.Shape is medium size. It works great for claw grip and fingertip pretty good. Palm grip may be tougher on bigger hands, so if that’s your thing, you should look somewhere else, maybe the new kone pro air. You can also use a lighter AAA battery with tin foil or AAA to AA convertor to make it weigh less. The weight is a bit heavy with the double AA battery. You can use a AAA lithium battery to reduce weight just use some foil at the ends. The weight is way better.Alternative budget wireless gaming mouseRazer orochi- more expensive, Bluetooth, but has major sensor issues. No problem if you don’t play fps games , this is more versatile. Mouse is very small though. But a solid mouse.Katar pro- cheaper but major sensor issues and shape might be an issue with hand slipping off.Steelseries- just stay away from period.Alternative wireless gaming mouseG pro wireless/Superlight- cost way more, has the same sensor. Performs great has internal battery. My 2nd fav wireless mouse. If you can’t afford this, the g305 has the same sensor and performs nearly identical. You are paying for a lighter mouse with an internal battery.Glorious Model O- Decent price and click/sensor performance. Sensor is decent just slightly under par with Hero sensor.Razer Viper Ultimate- Expensive, better click latency, decent focus sensor, but higher cpi variation than g305G wolves hati wireless- decent price, haven’t tested though but heard good things.Roccat Kone Pro Air- Great solid ergo wireless mouse. Sensor not as good on hero.Software looks good but can be a pain to have profile save to mouse. Saving profile to mouse gives option to not run the software in background. Issue is that sometimes the dpi doesn’t save correctly to mouse. You have to create a new profile and then adjust settings and then click to turn on onboard profiles. It’s buggy, sometimes the dpi will always revert to 800 dpi.ConclusionFinding the best is always a pain. Honesty isn’t what drives marketing. Razer and Logitech both hype up there products and hide there issues. If only you can get the great optical mouse switches with the Logitech Hero sensor. Unfortunately that doesn’t exist. Razer’s new focus sensor isn’t widely available on all there models yet. Roccat has made some great mice with optical switches and decent sensor performance. The roccat burst core is probably the best example of a solid mouse with low click latency and almost perfect sensor performance. But Roccat sensor performance is inconsistent between models. Some have great performance, some don’t. The new wireless Kone Pro Air has great click latency but the sensor is not as accurate as g305 even though it cost almost 3 times as much. Roccat stilll a newer company and can become great because obviously logitech doesn’t want to venture into optical mouse switches, which I think would be endgame.Hope this is helpful, let me know if you have any questions. G305 is still the king of wireless gaming mouse. You will not be disappointed.
