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

Verdict

 

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...

Wow

 

While some mice are tailored to one end of the market or another, Logitech took more of a jack of all trades approach with the G502 and pullled it off. This mouse is an average size, with an average number of buttons, an average degree of...

The G502 is a beautiful mouse that performs like a champ. The G502 is by far the best mouse I have ever owned ; I have a fairly medium sized hand and use claw grip and this mouse fits like a glove

This isn't a true Con, but the light blue accents on the mouse don't really go with the red/black color scheme of my computer. It would have been nice to see Logitech address the appearance customization by either having controllable LED's or different...

Awesomeness Gliding on My Mat

 

If you game on Linux, make sure you have access to a Windows OS so you can put in the profiles, then boot into Linux.

Too many to be extensive. I didn't think Logitech could make anything better than the G9x, but I was wrong. Since I had the Logitech Gaming Software already installed it was recognized, firmware updated, everything programed, and tuned within minutes ;...

Same issue with most Logitech advanced G-series products, not a lot of support for Linux. This is going to really suck for Logitech when SteamOS really starts to take off as Microsoft keeps shooting themselves in the foot

Ergonomically terrible

 

Aside from it's atrocious ergonomics, it wouldn't be that bad of a mouse. -There's a lump coming out of it around the point where your laptop callous is. No idea why it's there. Just extremely uncomfortable and forces your hand into a strange...

Does and has everything just as advertised ; Not bad looking

Ergonomically the worst mouse I have ever used in my life. Used it for about 2 hours and my hand was cramping so bad I switched back to my old broken mouse ; Mouse wheel has 2 settings. Extremely loose to the point of scrolling on it's own without even...

awesome gaming / multi tasking mouse

 

I have a rather big hand and it fits me very well. A smaller hand (my girlfriend) fits great too, it's simply resting more on it ; Button configuration is easy, quick with the software provided online and different games are recognized ; Not sure it...

none so far beside 1 button that is unreachable in-game (where fast clicking is required) --> the button G9 (just under the mouse wheel rolling adjustment). You can't click on it without pressing the wheel adjustment

Good Mouse, Im just not used to it

 

Now I do have issues with this mouse but they aren't the mouse's fault, they're just my personal preferences so I'm not counting them against the mouse. I had been using a razer taipan for about 2 years and it fit me really well, new when i switched...

Looks amazing ; Good placement on the buttons ; Good braided cable ; Works well all across the board

No real apparent cons

Amazing Mouse

 

The very first time I ever palmed this mouse, I could have sworn it was cast using my hand as the mold. I have used a lot of gaming mice in my time, but non can even remotely compare to the comfort and natural feel of the G502. $80 is a lot of money to...

Attracts dirt very easily ; Cleaning the mouse is time consuming ; Plastic thumb grip gets caked with dirt
