The Logitech G502 Proteus Core is a 121 gram monster (that’s with its weights removed, and not counting the cable)and built to look vaguely like some kind of futuristic weapon.So i had to give you my idea as Logitech G502 Review.
- RGB customisable lighting with up to 16.8 million colours
- Logitech Gaming Software: Customise lighting, surface tuning, button macros
- Customisable controls: 11 programmable buttons and adjustable hyper-fast scroll wheel
- On-the-fly DPI switching: 5 dpi settings from 200 to 12000 dpi
- May not suit palm-grip players with big hands
Logitech says its G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse delivers “unprecedented levels of customization.” That’s not just marketing hype. Wrapped around an incredibly comfortable chassis, the G502 is one of the most mod-able devices I’ve ever used. It looks like futuristic mil-spec hardware, but it feels like luxury ,let me check Logitech G502 Review.
Logitech G502 Review – Customizable Gaming Mouse
The G502 has 11 buttons.The G502 is packed with extra buttons—two to the left of the left mouse click, two above the thumb groove, and a “sniper” button at the end of the thumb groove. Its scroll wheel also has a button to switch from free to notched scrolling, has the standard middle click, and also can rock left-to-right for two more clicks.The G502 isn’t a large mouse by any means (in fact, it’s a bit small for my hands) but all of the buttons are clearly delineated and you’ll be hard-pressed to hit any of them by accident.
The mouse is a bit short, so I’d guess it’s most comfortable for claw- and fingertip grippers—but its suits this fingertip gripper just fine. I also fell in love with the teal-accented thumb rest on the side. That’s not useful for me, but my thumb more relaxing often instead of squeezing the edges of the mouse. I experienced fewer cramps in my hand after using this mouse for long stretches.
The G502 have the world’s most powerful and accurate sensor ranges from 200 CPI to 12000 CPI. That’s more resolution than I can envision anyone needing today, but it might become valuable if our 4K future comes to pass. The sensor is fantastic, and Logitech gives you the option of calibrating using the company’s software.That’s a brand new design that no other mouse on the market has .And that’s not the only customization you can perform. Crack open the bottom of the mouse and you’ll find room for up to five 3.6-gram weights. Choosing where to place some or all five weights can slightly change the Proteus Core’s center of balance .The diamond pattern allows you to offset its weight to one side or the other or from front to back,you can make it even heavier with its removable weights.
Did I say there were 11 buttons? There’s actually a twelfth. It’s non programmable, thoughl; it just regulates whether the mouse wheel rotates smoothly or stepped. The stepped scroll provides useful tactile feedback, so I almost never use a smooth scroll wheel. But it does spin faster in that mode, if that’s something you need. And props to Logitech for manufacturing one of the mouse cables in the industry.
Alas, the G502 is not perfect. The scroll wheel is oversized in proportion to the rest of the mouse, and it’s hard to click without inadvertently scrolling. It’s even harder to tilt the wheel without accidentally scrolling. This could be remedied by making the rest of the mouse a little larger, but I suspect that would render it better suited to palm grippers than the claw- or fingertip-gripping crowd.
The right mouse button is a bit loose and occasionally produces an ugly-sounding squawk when you pull your finger off. This isn’t a huge deal, but it is distracting.
Finally, there are the weights to consider. They’re all the same heft, so you can make only gross adjustments. And while it’s good that the weights fit tight inside the mouse—you wouldn’t want them rattling around while you’re playing a game—you’ll need to dig them out with a screwdriver any time you want to change weight distribution.
But in the grand scheme of things, those complaints are pretty minor. The Logitech G502 Proteus Core is one of the best gaming mice a finger.It’s claw gripper can lay their hand on, offering tons of customization, a great sensor, and impeccably comfortable design.
Logitech’s gaming software is good, though I prefer the simplicity of Razer Synapse (Logitech’s has some unnecessary animations that don’t add anything to usability). Unlike Synapse, though, the G502’s drivers don’t require an online account, and they allow you to tweak the usual features—profiles and keybinds, macros, sensitivity levels, and lighting. The software also has surface tuning for analyzing a mousepad, which is how the G502 can get down to such a low lift-off distance.Last words keep in mind it’s wired mouse but not wireless gaming mic.
