Logitech G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse review


The wired mouse for the claw-grip gamer that knows what they want

Weight customization and surface customization are cool/practical features ; Responsive, versatile mouse suitable for myriad uses ; Great for claw-grip style of gaming

Is 12,000 dpi really necessary ; Left-click is a bit too close to the dpi shift keys ; Thumb rest doesn't jive well for palm-grip users

The Logitech G502 Proteus Core is a another strong Gaming mouse from Logitech, although I have to admit it isn’t quite as good as I thought it was going to be, maybe I was expecting a little to much. Don’t get me wrong the G502 is a very good Gaming...

Logitech Proteus Core G502 Gaming Mouse review


The modern gaming mouse market is a diverse one, from ambidextrous, cut back and clean looking mice, to those festooned with buttons, bells whistles to look like something created in a future space ra...

Excellent Mouse, Logitech has done it again!


This is a gaming mouse. Someone asked me why I would spend $80 on a mouse when they can get one for $10. I hope whoever is reading this is a gamer and understands the need for this mouse, but if your not don't waste your money. You are spending extra...

This is the best mouse I have ever used! I have been a fan of logitech keyboards and mice since 2006 when I got my first combo the g15 keyboard with the g5 mouse. This was the best mouse of its time with dedicated dpi shift buttons, removable weight...

Not a big con but there is no place in the software to change the color of the LED's on the mouse. I know the mouse has color changing LED's because when you are surface tuning the mouse the dpi leds turn green . I wanted the entire mouse green between...

Great Mouse


I was hunting for a new mouse after my beloved Microsoft Sidewinder became unusable. I saw this and immediately knew I wanted it. Was the first computer part I ever pre-ordered, and I was not disappointed. One of the best mice I've ever used. Only...

Great customization ; Comfortable ; Good button placement ; Mousewheel clicks to the side ; Profile and DPI options

A bit too small for my hand, but not a huge deal. Not Logitech's fault

This is built like a tank. Ive been using Razer products since they became main stream and reluctantly switched to this from my beloved Deathadder - Best choice Ive ever made. Pick it up, it just feels so much better. The mouse button reactions are so...

Weight, build quality, button customization, custom tuning for mouse mats

Middle click is a bit stiff

Shouldn't be called a G5


When I started out gaming, I bought a Logitech G3. College life killed it. At that point, the G3 was tough to find--but I found a new one on that auction bay. When I killed that one, I bought my first G500. It died after a year. Warranty service got me...

Logitech's 3-year warranty. The scroll wheel is much improved. The 12,000 DPI sensor is pretty nice. The software works (even if it's a little odd at times)

Logitech's poor quality components lead me to this mouse. The shape is significantly changed from the G500s, G500, & G5. The buttons are rearranged and some, like the one under your thumb, really shouldn't be there. It's smaller and made for a very...

Bad cam


Don't by a cam from Logitech. This isn't the first time had problems like this.


I tried this cam on 2 computers. After initial installation, neither computer recognize the device. Om my desktop, I removed the soft wear, and tried to reinstall. Not I get an error message that my computer is below recommended specs for the drivers...

Logiteh G502


-It's more of a Claw/Palm Grip Mouse, but still feels almost the same as G500 Mouse. -When running at 12,000 CPI, you can go to Mouse Properties and set Mouse Pointer option to 2 Bars. -I wish that Logitech can increase a lot more weight to increase...

Very comfortable ; Well Ergonomic ; Nice patterned grips ; Buttons feel responsive ; Scroll Wheel is easy to scroll down pages in short pull ; 32-Bit ARM Processor to store more profiles as well as increasing tracking accuracy ; An option to...

12,000 CPI/DPI may or may not work on some games; regardless what mouse sensitivity you run at ; DPI Shift is a bit too far to reach and makes it harder to snipe in FPS games and I wish that DPI Shift button is a bit closer to my thumb, so that way i...
