Logitech G502 HERO review
The Logitech G502 HERO is an excellent high-end mouse that stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best in the business.

It's striking the impact a good mouse can have on the simple act of using a computer. Where a run-of-the-mill optical mouse is just a tool for issuing commands, a high-end mouse can feel like a weapon that empowers you to accomplish more with speed and precision. This applies to computer users of all stripes, whether you're a keen gamer looking for an advantage over the competition or an office worker interested in improving your efficiency.
No matter which category you fall into, Logitech's latest premium mouse has a whole lot to offer. Dubbed the Logitech G502 HERO, it combines a high-precision optical sensor with a comfortable and ergonomic design plus plenty of customisable features for maximising your performance. There's certainly no shortage of competition in the premium mouse space from the likes of Razer's Lancehead Tournament mouse and HyperX's Pulsefire Surge RGB, but with the G502 HERO, Logitech proves it's every bit as capable of producing a high-quality device at a competitive price.
