The Final Verdict

Let’s cover the similarities first. The software for both was great. We really liked being able to customize the Logitech G102 and the Logitech G302 and there were plenty of different options. There were no issues with compatibility, and it was easy to connect to all of our devices with a USB, there was no difference here. The size was also very similar although we did feel that both are more suitable for people who have average to smaller sized hands.

There were two things that impacted our decision. Price wasn’t one of them. The Logitech G302 is slightly more expensive but not enough to put you off. One the one hand, we liked how you could change the DPI settings while you are playing with the Logitech G302. It was great for those moments when you needed to focus on precise pixels. On the other hand, the design looks nice but might not be a favorite for everyone, that being said, it is just as likely that you will love it. Our overall winner was the Logitech G302, mainly because of the DPI settings.
