Logitech's G502 Proteus Core tunable gaming mouse with 12,000 DPI sensor hits in April
12,000 dpi sensor
32 bit ARM
145g with 3.6g removable weights
Mind you - 12,000 DPI?
Anyone used the new mouse yet?
Yep, quite like it. Never going to use the 12000dpi though.
I'm definitely interested. At $75 probably not toooo bad I guess.
Not compared to some other mice on the market.
Possible for a review?
Ok, I’ll make some comparisons with my G500S.
Build quality is on par and seems very good. The switches are nice and responsive and they seem a little better than the G500s. Definitely more clicky . The plastic finish of the mouse is good and the grips on the side certainly give plenty of grip. I particularly like the thumb rest and find this much better than the G500s.
The scroll wheel is good however I do find it hurts my finger after a while. I think this is mainly due to the fact that it doesn’t have any rubber on the wheel and is more chunky. I prefer the one on the G500S to be honest. I haven’t used the free scroll but I’m sure I’ll use the feature in future. Good to have the feature in any case.
The weight of the mouse is good, albeit abit light for me without the weights. It comes with 6 weights which are 3.6g each. I have 4 of the 6 fitted and find it suits me.
The G Logitech logo lights up blue, might be abit bright for some. You can turn it on or off in the software however the brightness cannot be adjusted. I also found I had to update to the latest Logitech software to recognise the G502.
The cable is braided and seems of high quality. It is quite pliable which I think a lot of people will like.
As stated this mouse goes up to 1200DPI. I haven’t tried it at the highest DPI and doubt I ever will. I'm lucky if I go over 2500dpi.
Overall I’m quite impressed with the G502. Mine cost me just under $79 delivered.
Thanks for the review - now under consideration by myself and hopefully others!
I purchased the G502 yesterday, here are my impressions:
The G502 is marginally larger and a fair bit heavier than the sensei but found both to be equally as comfortable to use
The G502 has overall more comfortable surface textures (particularly on the side grips).
Button placement on the G502 feel perfect for my hand (I'm about 6ft tall and have medium sized hands, using hybrid claw/palm grip).
So far have had no issues with tracking on my Artisan cloth mouse pad, where as the sensei had minor skipping issues
The scroll wheel sucks. It wobbles a fair amount and it seems to accidentally depress the side scroll clicks occasionally when scrolling (probably because of how heavy it is) which makes the scrolling action a little noiser than the sensei and not as smooth. I also prefer the rubber material of the sensei's scroll wheel over the metal G502 scroll wheel since it's easier to start/stop scrolling (more friction). Overall though, the scroll wheel does do it's job perfectly fine and is not a deal breaker for me.
I don't notice too much of a difference in sensor performance, though it's hard to judge since various things will affect mouse movement. Playing CS:GO, it felt as though the G502 was more sensitive/responsive, however it could just be placebo or a change in the mouse shape.
On the software side, logitech wins hands down. Everything is faster and more intuitive.
If you're in the market for a new mouse, I think the price is justified for the G502.
Thanks for the review, I was wondering about that mouse. I am still rocking the g9x, has anyone tried both?
Great reviews - OP updated. Thanks guys!
G500s on sale
Not much love for the G400 in this thread?
Getting on a bit now though? : )
Out of stock already dammit.
Been out for a few days now, had to be quick on that one I reckon. Then again there are other shops only a little more expensive I guess.
Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse COTD $69.95 + p/h
Ordered. Should be delivered soon.
How could you guys forget about the good ol' G400 says probably the only person on this forum with one
Wait... so the G502 has 12,000dpi... who the fuck is gonna use that?!?!
I use 800dpi on my G400... FOR TRIPLE SCREENS!
I have no idea - 12,000dpi is way too much for noobs like us I think. But maybe there is some use for it - just dont know what!
