Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Ultra Fast FPS Gaming Mouse
Logitech calls its G402 Hyperion Fury “The world’s fastest gaming mouse”, an unintuitive and almost ironic statement since computer mice don’t move on their own. There’s only one wheel and it’s not for transporting the mouse. The buttons don’t move any faster. The slick feet on the underside aren’t anything revolutionary. One would think that perhaps this mouse is ultra-lightweight, but It isn’t and it’s actually nearly the same weight as a typical gaming mouse. It’s when Logitech is not trying to summarize the G402’s capabilities in five words does it ascribe to make more sense.
The G402 is built to have the highest tracking speed of any mouse out there though the effect that translates to is not velocity, but how reliably mouse movement is translated onto the computer. The G402 can track even when the user moves the mouse so fast that the tracking sensor can’t detect movement for a split moment thanks to an accelerometer inside the mouse. Fusion Engine is the name given to this combination of that accelerometer and Logitech’s so-called Delta Zero sensor technology.
As the G402’s namesake implies, this mouse inherits a few features from the older G400s, namely on-the-fly adjustable DPI and 8 programmable buttons. New features are the updated tracking technologies, a repositioned 8th button as the third thumb button, 4 DPI settings up from 3, onboard profile storage, and an all new ergonomic design. The G402 Hyperion Fury mouse comes with a 2 year warranty and will launch at a price of $59.99 in September.
