Haven't had it long enough to make my decision, but keep in mind I was absolutely in love with my G9x and had it for a long time. My only gripe with the G9x that it was a bit too short for my long hands. I can already tell though that the G502 is a more accurate mouse, not sure if that is the sensor itself or its more central location on the mouse that makes it feel more natural. Still getting used to it, so far my only complaint on the G502 is the lack of an indentation for your pinky - the G9x has a slight ridge that is perfect to rest your pinky in, while the G502 tapers all the way to the bottom.
Here are the pics and Entous results I promised. Keep in mind I changed NO settings from my G9x, just updated the logitech software center to ID it and verify settings were the same. They were cellphone pics done in the dark so are not the best quality.
Side by side shot:
Length (you can notice the lack of the pinky ledge on the G502):
palm grip for my 2XL hands. VERY comfortable!
Another SBS comparison:
Sensor locations/feet shape:
For the Entous results, both mice DPI measured on the dot with high precision(within margin of error based on the user). The G502 recorded a higher max speed at the same polling, and I think it was limited to my arm speed - you will max out your reflexes well before maxing out the G502. I could not detect any jitter, smoothing, acceleration, or angle snapping on the G502- the sensor is marvelous
. IMO, with a pinkly ledge/maybe 1/4" wider it would be the perfect mouse - for myself at least.
Keep in mind tests were done at the same exact settings for both mice, a very modest 1800DPI. The G502 may exhibit better or worse settings at a different DPI.
