Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse Review
The Logitech 6502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse is an upgraded version of the already fantastic predecessor. The G502 now features an updated, sleek design and enhanced gaming features for a high-quality experience.
Logitech designed the new G502 Proteus Core to comfortably fit the users hand whether in palm grip for claw grip. The mouse is fairly small and features grips for the two outside finger as well as the thumb. The G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse features 11 fully functional buttons as well as a right/left mouse button, scroll wheel and two DPI buttons on the top. The scroll wheel is stiff but this is a good thing considering the previous generation was flimsy. All of the buttons on the G502 are small enough to not interfere with the sleek design, yet large enough to be easily pressed and identified. User with larger hands might find the G502 to be a little small but for most users, the size is just right.
As stated above, there are several new and/or updated features on the G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse. The Proteus Core still uses Logitech Gaming Software but the speed has been improved and lag is almost non-existent now. Three profiles can be saved within the Logitech G502, internally, but there is an almost unlimited amount of profile storage if saved to a computer. The Logitech software used in the G502 can determine what specific games you have installed on your computer by scanning your PC. The software then automatically creates and saves profiles for your favorite games. Users can also customize their profiles in a few easy steps. Depending on the game, certain customization options will appear (Grapnel Gun for Batman: Arkham City).
Users can choose which feature they want and then “drag it” to the button of their choice. That button on the G502 Mouse will not act as that gaming feature until changed. If desired, users can control the illumination levels of the mouse and adjust the range of the DPI (200 – 12,000). There are two features that Logitech raves about: adjustable weight system and surface-testing capability. As for weight adjustment, the G502 Proteus Core has a small door located on the underside of the mouse, which contains several sports for 3.6-gram weights. Users can also test the surface of the device on anything, from a mouse pad to a thin slip of paper and receive impressive results.
The final part of this review is probably the most crucial part of the testing period: performance. Due to the layout of the eleven buttons of the G502, the mouse controls gaming features very well. There are little complications with tapping the wrong button because they are spaced out so well. The mouse works equally well with real-time strategy, massively multiplayer online, action/adventure and fire-person shooter games. The G502 is responsive and accurate, leaving little room for error or mistake.
