We love a good gaming mouse but fear for the price: That latest part explains the bit of shock we felt when Amazon announced a 50% discount on Logitech’s $80 G502 Hero…bringing it down to an almost acceptable $39. If you have just a bit more money than us, you’ll probably want one of these on each of your rigs at that price.
For those less familiar, here’s what Logitech says:
“The original G502 is a fan favorite, but we’ve developed some incredible sensor technology since it first launched,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “Adding HERO 16K to G502 makes it even more awesome, and we think people are going to love it.”
The ultimate sensor for speed, accuracy and responsiveness, the Logitech G502 HERO boasts Logitech G’s industry-leading HERO 16K sensor, the highest performing and most efficient gaming sensor Logitech has ever made. Featuring an all-new lens and updated tracking algorithm to deliver ultra-precise tracking with no acceleration, smoothing or filtering over the entire DPI range, Logitech G’s revolutionary HERO 16K sensor is capable of exceeding 400 IPS and delivering 16,000 DPI tracking with pixel-precise accuracy.
Each aspect of the Logitech G502 HERO was built to adjust to different styles of gameplay. The mouse has 11 buttons, programmable through Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), to customize commands and macros, adjustable weight system with five 3.6g weights and a dual-mode hyper scroll. Lighting can be personalized across approximately 16.8 million colors using Logitech G’s LIGHTSYNC RGB technology. Onboard memory stores up to five profiles, so you can take your customized settings with you.
With the same iconic design as the original, the Logitech G502 HERO is the ultimate in comfort, with textured rubber side button grips and an updated braided cable for optimal feel and performance through long gaming sessions. The mouse’s upgraded mechanical switch, developed in partnership with Omron, delivers extreme performance and a 50M click durability. The overall weight of the Logitech G502 HERO, and the mouse’s center of balance can be adjusted based on the placement of the adjustable weights.”
