The Logitech G502 is one of the hot-selling model of gaming mice back in the days – because that’s a really good mouse indeed. The second iteration received a RGB lighting, and now the latest iteration changes the name of the mouse as well. From the G502 Proteus Core to Proteus Spectrum, and now G502 HERO.
The new Logitech G502 HERO still retains the iconic shape as the original mouse, but updated with the latest Logitech G’s HERO 16k sensor which stands for High Efficiency Rated Optical. Logitech claims that this sensor is the highest performance and most accurate sensor today.
The new Logitech G HERO 16k sensor is coupled with 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.
The switches also got an upgrade and it now uses mechanical switches from Omron that is rated for 50 million clicks.
Other than that, the Logitech G502 HERO is pretty much the same as before. It still has the 11 programmable buttons and 5 optional weights together with a braided cable. Also, it still has the LIGHTSYNC RGB as well – because everything needs to be in RGB these days.
It is also compatible with the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) to customize the commands and macros to the mouse as well. The Logitech G502 HERO also has on-board memory which can store up to 5 profiles.
Also, just like before, the G502 HERO comes with dual-mode hyper scroll as well. I absolutely love this feature while reading documents or scrolling through a long webpage. Also, it doesn’t put that much strain on the scroll wheel, and it does prolong the life of the scroll wheel.
The Logitech G502 HERO will be available in mid-october for RM349. It is already available on Amazon, by the way.
