Today we are going to be reviewing the Logitech G502 HERO. A mouse in the Logitech G lineup.
Thanks to Logitech for sending this out for review.
When you receice your G502, it comes well packaged in plastic. What you get in the box is the mouse itself, some documentation and the weight kit.
The G502 hero is the re-designed, well loved G502 mouse from Logitech.
It is mostly black with grey accents next to the left-click and on the scroll wheel in addition to some glossy black plastic around the bottom half. The surface of the mouse is coated with a soft and rubbery coating that also helps to keep grip.
The mouse itself is slightly angled for comfortable ergonomics and has a nice thumb grip to the left side. The thumb grip has a cool geometric design that continues to the underside and the right side. It is not ambidextrous but nevertheless is still quite comfortable.
Underneath the left-click button there is two addressable RGB lights. One is the Logitech G logo and the other is the DPI profile selection. But more on these later.
Underneath the G502 is some plastic sliders to keep it movin on your mouse pad. There also the door for the weights which magnetically snaps to the left thumb grip.
Speaking of the weights you can add up to five of the included 3.6g weights for a total of 18g!
The G502 Hero comes with 9 programmable buttons, in addition to the left and right click which can also be re-programmed. Buttons G5 and G4 are pre-programmed as forward and back.Button G9 is pre-programmed as the DPI profile button to be able to switch between up 5 profiles.
Also on the G502 is a DPI Shift button is the button located at the end of the thumb grip which has the sniper logo on it. Hold this in to go into sniper mode to go to a lower DPI mode which allows for higher accuracy.
G502 On-Board Memory
The G502 hero come equipped with on-board memory allowing you to save your configuration to use on any PC, even without Logitech software!
The Scroll Wheel
The G502 has an amazingly cool scroll wheel allowing you to use it on two different modes. One is the single click mode for single click scrolling accuracy the other is Hyper Fast scrolling, for instance scrolling through a really long document. The button to change is located just above the G9 button.
G502 Hero 16K Sensor
The HERO sensor is where this mouse gets the name G502 HERO, it is Logitech’s latest sensor technology and is super accurate. It has the fastest frame rate processing yet. It is capable of 400+ IPS across the 100 – 16,000 DPI range. And above all, does this with zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration.
LIGHTSYNC. Which is Logitech’s next generation RGB technology that can be driven by games, audio, or your screen therefore giving you the most immersive RGB experience. Select from a full spectrum of approximately 16.8 million colors and synchronize lighting animations and effects with your other Logitech G devices. You can do all of this through the Logitech G Hub in addition to all the DPI changes and settings.
The G502 HERO is the recreation of the beloved G502 mouse. Therefore I highly recommend it for anyone wanting a high accuracy gaming mouse. And above all, it’s RGB!
