Logitech’s G502 has a lot to live up to compared to its older sibling the G500. The G500 was a flagship in gaming mice. It was every gamer’s weapon of choice.
The first thing that stuck out was the over-the-top 12,00dpi. This is controlled by a couple of buttons on the side of the mouse. These buttons raise and lower the dpi sensitivity on the fly.
The Logitech Gaming software will also work with the mouse to scan the surface you are using it on to increase usability. This is a great feature. It means no matter where you are, the mouse will always work as if it is on a mouse pad.
It comes with weights as well, in 3.6g increments. The total weight for the mouse is 138g. This combined with the surface calibration makes for a very customisable mouse.
The macro buttons can be set up on a per-game basis or you can make a custom style in one of three on-board profiles.
As seen by the picture the G502 is a gorgeous looking piece of kit. It has a rubberised thumb rest which gives a huge advantage in terms of grip. The downside is size. If you’re a user with larger hands, it can feel cramped.
The G502 has a click-to-click or smooth scrolling choices for the wheel.
