Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse and G240 Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad Review

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse

Color me surprised when I found out that the Logitech G5 design, in use since that mouse first appeared in 2005 and based off the also legendary MX518, was being replaced by the ergonomic shape being used for the G602. The wild success of the G5 and the various G500 updates have perhaps culminated to be amongst the top, if not the defacto favorite gaming mice for nearly a decade. Logitech hasn’t extinguished the original MX518 shape as it continues on as the G400s today.Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse and Logitech G240 Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad

The G5 and G500 legacy weren’t the only reason to suspect why such a design wouldn’t be effectively retired. The G602 and the radically different G600 MMO mouse are both still active products. Yet, Logitech has presented us with the G502 Proteus Core which brings together some familiar G500 features under a new shell.Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse

Returning features from the G500s include weights for adjustable mouse mass and balance, on-the-fly DPI switching, dual-mode hyper-fast (inertial) scroll wheel, braided cable, and onboard memory for profile storage. New features to the Logitech G502 Proteus Core are a new optical sensor that can track up to 12,000 DPI and 11 programmable buttons – one more button over the 10 buttons on the G500s. The adjustable weighting has also been redesigned with a new look and new magnetic locking cover. The G502 Proteus Core comes with a 3-year warranty and is available at Amazon for $79.99 shipped.Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse

    anyone sucsseded pressing the g-shift and back button combo?!:D

    btw i found surface tuning to make a really really small diffrence

    + what is angle snapping?

    anyway this is a GREAT GREAT GREAT mouse, i love it so much, specially the snipe button :D it helps, a lot !

    i changed mine to on-pc !

    i love it so much, for these stuff the price is good !

    i LOVE the free-spining scroll wheel so much xD

    only complain, when not a complain is that im used to the G602 back buttons :( ! but i guess i will get used to this one :)

    the magnetic door is awesome ! no pain in pushing to open it :)

    fiy: i puted only a 3.5k on middle left of mine :) and it feels awesome ! but weight tuning isn’t really usefull ! but still good:)

    I have a G5 that came free with Battlefield 2142 which is the Battlefield 2142 edition. I paid $40 for the game and the mouse. Who is going to spend $170 on a mouse when real gamers drink either beer or soda and accident can and do happen.
