From what I have seen and read, I really like the features on the G602 but I want more information about the sensor. How well does the sensor perform compared to the Logitech G400/G400s and Razer DeathAdder. I want a mouse with a 'perfect sensor' and a good amount of buttons. I also posted in the mouse suggestions thread. I posted this specific thread because I need more info on these mouse as the reviews I have seen don't go in to much detail about precision/accuracy/sensor quality. So please, if you have a G602 or used it, how is it?

I just put mine up on Ebay solely due to it's weight. But I have noticed I pick my mouse up a lot as I use it. This is something I never noticed until I started using the G602. One of the issues is that most of the weight is at the palm end of the mouse (thats where the batteries reside), and since my fingers grip the button end of the mouse to lift it, they were having a difficult time because of the weight distribution (the front would lift easy but the back would drop, pulling it from my hand a bit). It's not a super huge difference from front to back but I could notice it.

I noticed after a week when I plugged my G7 back in to start using it again, that the weight is very uniform along the entire mouse, making it easier to lift. Strangely, my G7 isn't all that much lighter that the G602, the weight distribution made a big difference.

Also It does seem that the groove that my pinky fits in on the G7 is a bit deeper, again, allowing me to lift it easier.

I can't say anything about all of the other specifics of the mouse except for one thing. I don't play FPS games much at all, and in the games I do play, I left the mouse in endurance mode and it operated just fine. (thats the mode that uses less energy from the batteries) So there is one positive. smile.gif

I liked it a lot other than the weight issues, but I need to go back to a lighter mouse.

I also lift the mouse like you do however my Inferno is heavier than the G602 so I do not know if I will have a problem with the G602. The weight of my Inferno is 161.5g whereas the G602 is 153g with 2 AA batteries (Techpowerup). But maybe weight distribution could be a problem. The G602 is ~2cm longer, 0.8cm wider, and a bit higher than my mouse. The larger size might be a detriment for FPS gaming.. I am not sure. I am also looking at some Roccat optical mice now.

Ya it's really tough to know until you pick one of the things up. There are a lot of small things in a mouse that can really make a big difference. I actually just went and ordered a G400s on newegg, $40, half the price! I hope the cord won't be too much of an issue for me, been using a cordless for so long.

I just bought a Roccat Kone Pure Optic from Canada Computers. I have used it for an hour or two and I really like the sensor. It is a huge improvement from the Inferno. I noticed the same improvements as when I tried the DeathAdder but this Roccat mouse has more buttons. The lift of distance is a little annoying though but apparently you can fix it with tape. I don't have any problems with its ergonomics although it will take me some time to get fully used to it. The software is amazing and even has a bunch of preset commands for games and other programs. The only problem with the software is that it takes a few seconds for the settings to save. The build quality is superb.

UPDATE: I applied the tape fix and my lift of distance problem seems to be solved.

Oh that looks like a nice mouse. I don't ever use the programmable buttons on these things, so I never bother to install software. But it is pretty. I dunno why I bought the G602 in the first place, was kind of overkill, but it looked so shiney! Speaking of which, I fell for a Ducky Shine keyboard last year too haha.
