Had the G500 for years and absolutely loved it, recently in CSGO however I started having issues with the mouse cursor not tracking ingame so I ended up buying this newer mouse as I wanted as close to the G500 as possible. However when the mouse arrived it had the same issue, so started going through PC and all my settings. Turns out there was a stupid option in CSGO itself that had become disabled. However in the very short amount of time I had the mouse I had already fell in love, the ergonomics of the left and right buttons make your fingers fit perfectly, however slightly smaller than the original G500, something that I do miss the feel of this mouse is amazing, only negative I have found is I accidentally hit the front thumb button quite often and the soft touch grip surface texture isn't as nice to hold as the original G500.
All in all an amazing mouse bought out of my own stupidity and failed to return as I fell in love.
I would say this is a good mouse. It's hard to find heavy mice these days and even this one only matched the weight of my previous mouse (MX-2000) after adding the weights. The tracking seems on point apart from some rare occasions and there's a good amount of customisation possible through the Logitech Gaming software. The buttons feel fine and have a good click without feeling spongy but the top two additional buttons are hard to use in games. The mouse itself does fit in my hand well but it is rather big meaning that if you need a prefer a small, light mouse this probably isn't for you.
I do have one major gripe with this mouse and it's the scroll wheel. You can unlock it to allow it to be free spinning, and while this is entertaining it rarely serves a purpose. What this feature feels like it has done however is compromise the feel of the scroll wheel. Every bump in normal scroll mode just feels bad and it can even miss scrolls if you're going very slowly. On top of that, the scroll wheel tilt functions are just as bad, requiring a rather heavy push and feeling rather inconsequential. I just find the whole scroll wheel terrible to use and this is something to consider if you do basically anything outside of gaming (web browsing, productivity work etc).
Overall, I would recommend this mouse, but like everything you should look into other options and make your choice based on exactly what you would need out of a mouse.
I brought this as part of a amazon sale and its a mouse i've had my eye on for some time, unfortunately I wasn't going to pay the £70-£80 rrp but when the sale came around I was happy with the price I paid.
I swapped out my Mionix castor mouse for the G502 and there is a noticeable difference in quality. The castor generally feels better in the hand and I was initially disappointed with how the the G502 felt. However, i've continued with the logitec due to just how configurable it is and overall (for the price I paid) I think this is a good mouse.....but the Mionix is better.
I would still argue that £60-£80 for the G502 is way too much money (from a quality perspective) but get a good deal (less than £40 like I did) and its well worth it.
Great Moba mouse no complaints good build quality and would totally recommend for anyone really comfortable design in the hand adjustable wieghts are a added bonus the pixie art 3366 sensor in this mouse is very precise you can't go wrong unless you are going to play mostly fps i recommend a mouse with 3310 sensor like rival 300 i found it worse than my rival 300 for battlefield 4 and cs go.
Also the two day shipping with the mouse makes it a great deal! Thanks to Amazon!
When I say rock solid mouse I mean how it feels in my hand. It fits perfectly and I find myself holding it properly. Whereas with my Logitech G5 I tended to hold my hand off it. I would control with finger-tips, which I think is nick-named 'claw' holding.
All buttons are within reach.
My drawback on it, is that when the scroll wheel is in free-scroll, then the wheel itself can rattle. Any sideways movement, that stops, results in the wheel rattling. Easy enough to hold finger on middle mouse though as you sort of do anyway when browsing. Or use the stiffer scroll wheel setting, which actually makes scrolling to loud as it's sort of ratchety.
This is a solid all-round gaming mouse at a good price. I am someone who always buys the best product they can for their computer, regardless of the price. In this case, the mouse I thought best for my gaming was this one, one which is a very reasonable price compared to many of the others on the market.
I've been using this mouse for two years now and it still works as well as when I first bought it. I often have problems with mouse wheels as they get full of cat fur and stop working, however this one hasn't had this issue.
The mouse has good features such as button you can click which allows you to spin the mouse wheel almost frictionlessly. The mouse comes with weights that you can put inside depending on how heavy you want the mouse to be. I chose to use none of them. The mouse contains an LED that you can programme to be whatever colour you want it to be. There are several programmable button too.
This is a great all round mouse that I have used for FPS, RTS, MMORPGs and more. It has performed well in all situations and I would happily recommend it to a friend.
Bought this during black Friday. I did have this on my wishlist prior to this. I moved from the Razer Deathadder 2013, which has served me well, but had began to give up. I was a bit dubious that the mouse would be any good due to the price, but I have been impressed. A lot more impressed than the Razer which was originally double the price.
The feel of the mouse is great, and the fact you can add weights is even better.
The additional buttons are a big help as well, but on the flipside of this, the buttons are hard to get used to initially. Some are thin and placed in awkward places to reach. Sometimes, you find yourself going to press one of these buttons and accidentally left clicking instead. Once your muscle memory begins to kick in, you can work past these issues.
I would recommend this mouse, if you are looking for a good gaming mouse, but not wanting to overspend.
This was copied from a review I posted about this mouse
I use this mouse with a xim apex allowing me to use mouse and keyboard on console
LOGITECH G502 REVIEW
After unboxing it first glance it looks like a RAT mouse with its jagged edges, it looks a bit smaller than my old perrix mx3100
I have very large hands so finding a mouse that's a perfect fit is a struggle
When I first took it out the box it felt a bit rattly when shook which didn't sound good, the rattle was coming from the scroll wheel, this mouse has 2 wheel options either free wheel where the mouse wheel spins untill it stops itself or you can set it to the standard click when turned
Free wheel it spins for ages which I don't think would be good for pubg, maybe for scrolling through large documents yeah
The mouse comes with a box of weights to try out but Tbh I notice no real difference with them in or out
After I pressed the button on the mouse to enable the click on the wheel the rattle mostly disappeared but was still slightly there
The size of the mouse isn't large but isn't small is say it's around the middle, slightly too small for my hands as my pinky and rung finger drag across my steel series cloth mat but it's no biggy since my hands are large and I'm used to it
Not had any cramping of the hand or anything so it can't be that small
First thing I done was load up the Logitech gaming software to check the dpi settings and Hz, by default the max dpi level is around 2500 and 1000hz
My single dpi setting is 12k and 1000hz
When you first load up the software make sure the selector is set to on board memory when making changes
Since I never change dpi when playing I changed it to only have 1 dpi profile therefore I can use one of the dpi adjustment buttons in my setup (more later)
Lighting can be easily changed to "breath" or just stay illuminated, I like mine to breath through the colours which can all be customised
All dpi and hz settings saved to in board memory, since I don't change dpi I reset the dpi+ button to a single key stroke that isn't used
Plugged it in to the xim apex and everything was fine so I originally set it up like this
Scroll up - d pad up Scroll down - d pad down 2 left thumb buttons - LB and RB Single thumb button - LB Scroll press - map Left tilt - nades Right tilt - firing mode
The left tilt and right tilt never felt right, and didn't always register also sometimes when I pressed the scroll she'll for map it would also register a tilt which wasn't very good
I removed the tilt settings and set nades to the dpi+ button and my meds were set to key T
After that everything ran fine
Gameplay help Great, I had also changed alot of my settings at the same time so everything was still quite new, I played all day yesterday with the new settings and G502 and it's definitely a great mouse to play with
Precision and movement is very good, I forgot to mention you can also calibrate the mouse to different surfaces, wether it makes a difference or not I still don't it calibrating it to my steel series cloth mat
I'd day it's definitely a great purchase and I would recommend It, it's not overly expensive but it's not on the cheap side either, if you want to progress your xim use and are looking for a great mouse get a G502
Pros Saveable memory Good button set up Great sensor Decent price It says there are macros that can be saved to the mouse but I've not tried them
Cons Rattly when shook especially when the mouse is set to free wheel Tilt setting not the best The 2 left thumb buttons feel like they should be moved forward slightly but it may just be my hands Braiding on the cable is far too tight which is already causing it to split but that can easily be fixed but looking through Google it's a common fault Logitech should fix
Love using this mouse. For general use I use this and for single player games. However for BF1 I use the G402, which is doesnt have the quality build of the G502, but is very similar in shape. They both suit a fingertip grip, which I have, the G402 is marginally more comfortable for my larger hands, as just slightly wider at the back end, giving better pinky support. The G502 has a thumb rest though and better scroll wheel. The G402 is lighter though and tracks brilliantly and for BF1 it has the edge. I can "lock on" to a target just a bit quicker, however, the G502 is still very good. The G403 is too small for me and feels the worst build, but it in the right hands it will match the G402. I just love the feel of the G502, it's build quality and scroll wheel, so that is my main mouse now. It is a heavier than the G402 and that coupled with the tracking make the G402 slightly better at online FPS, The G403 is too light for my taste, although others will prefer that and lighter still.. If you want a good quality all rounder, the G502 is ticks the boxes, If you are a hardcore online FPS player, I would go G402, as it has a similar shape, is the right weight for me and tracking is sublime. If you have smaller hands and you online game and you have more of a palm grip then look at the G403, which does have weights. Certainly on the G502 and G402 I don't use the weights. The G402 can be had for a bargain price around £30, so bang for buck it is a winner and has the best sliders, but there is no doubt you could be happy with a G502 for a long time, especially if online FPS is not so important, because it is still very capable FPS wise.
Before we start, i am addicted to my pc, on it all the time and i am currently trying to learn how to touch type. I use excel spreadsheets to do my company accounts and wanted a mouse that could scroll left and right as well. I very nearly went for the logitech mx master which from reviews looks amazing, but i'm not keen on battery mice and keyboards (i'm also a wannabee gamer - but very bad at it! - therefore latency issues - possibly). The mouse is very comfortable in my hand, the scroll wheel is taking some getting used to, i currently prefer the free wheel motion as the notchy feel is too hard in my opinion. Being 45 years old, still working out the different modes and buttons for customisations - not got a great memory (me not the mouse). Love the RGB, my kids and grandkids love it too! I like the idea of the weights in the base, although even without them it has a great feel. The G502 really does feel like it is going to last, which is one of the reasons i went for a logitech one. The only downside at the moment is the button placement, especially the thumb buttons, i think because of my previous mouse and the location of the forward and back buttons i am having trouble adapting, also when i first put my hand on the mouse i keep hitting the DPI shift button. This mouse is more expensive than any i have ever used before (i usually buy keyboard and mice combos for this sort of price!). I have promised myself that when i get to grips with this mouse and my touch typing i will treat myself to a mechanical RGB keyboard too. But overall i would recommend it, i did also try it in a shop before i purchased from Amazon which is probably a bit cheeky.
