Logitech G502 HERO review

Last updated:  

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

The Good

  • Supremely comfortable.
  • Precise sensor and responsive buttons.
  • Removable weights for tweaking momentum.

The Bad

  • Customisation software needs work.
  • Right-handed orientation only.

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.


Design

  • Contoured shape provides good hand support
  • Textured grips are comfortable and enhance control
  • Extra buttons are easy to access

Performance

  • Supports up to 16,000 DPI
  • On-the-fly DPI switching between three custom profiles
  • Firm and responsive buttons, especially the scroll wheel

Features

  • 11 programmable buttons

Verdict

The days of Logitech focusing exclusively on budget PC hardware are over. With the G502 HERO, the Swiss company proves that it is more than capable of producing a high-end mouse that goes toe-to-toe with flagship devices from industry heavyweights like Razer and Steelseries. Ignore the "gaming mouse" classification; the G502 HERO is an excellent mouse with plenty to offer computer users of all persuasions.

Pricing and availability

The Logitech G502 HERO retails for $129.95 and is available now from retailers like eBay, Scorptec and PC Case Gear.
