Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Logitech have a long history in the peripheral business, having created some of the most popular desktop and gaming mice around. With that in mind, we’re very happy to see their latest mouse, the G502 Proteus Core in the eTeknix office, as it comes equipped with some pretty awesome features that should make it a lot of fun to test.
The G502 Proteus comes equipped with a high-end 12,000 DPI sensor, which Logitech claim is the most accurate sensor on the market, a claim I won’t be taking lightly in our testing. An accurate sensor is obviously something we all want in our mice, be that for gaming or otherwise, how well it tracks can be the difference between catching that all important headshot or defeat.
A fast built-in 32-bit microcontroller, a (hopefully) super accurate sensor, weight tuning system, and so much more on offer with this mouse, the G502 is certainly ticking a lot of boxes.
- Most accurate sensor on the market
- 32-bit microcontroller
- 3 on-board profiles
- 1 millisecond report rate
- Primary buttons rated to 20 million clicks
- Mechanical microswitches
- Improved keyplate design for better click feeling and performance
- Braided cable with hook and loop cable tie
- Sleep mode disabled
- 3 DPI indicator LEDs
- Rubber grips
- Magnetic weight-cavity door
The new sensor promises great performance, but to ensure you can get the best out of it, it can be tuned to your surface of choice.
“Wood, Laminate, Steel, Mouse Pad, all surfaces have different properties. Proteus Core makes sure that no matter where or what you game on, your mouse is optimized.”
If tuning the sensor isn’t enough, there’s also a weight tuning system to allow you to tweak the balance and overall feel of the mouse.
“Proteus Core allows you to change the weight, balance, and enables you to adapt to wherever you choose to play. Customize it to the way you game and make it yours!”
The box shows a cool picture of the mouse, as well as some of the tuning weights.
Around the back, a quick breakdown of some of the features of the G502, such as the programmable buttons and surface tunable sensor.
In the box, you’ll find a small plastic box with the Logitech logo on it.
It’s a handy little storage box that houses five 3.6g weights.
