Logitech G502 Proteus Core ! - Page 290

post #2891 of 3265
^^ - Which is something I'll never understand considering the only parts of the G502 shell that light-up are either covered by your hand, or in a place that make them barely visible.. so *** is the point. I mean if they had mice similar to something like a Roccat XTD with it's "border" of lights around the mouse that you can actually see while palming it, then fine.. or even the scroll wheel, or side-buttons lighting up (why hasn't a company done this yet I wonder?) but no, a tiny little G logo on the back of the mouse that gets covered, and those little arrows near your thumb that reference dpi level.

I admit, I am a fan of RGB in keyboard applications, but that's because it's so much more useful, especially if you're like me and find yourself doing a lot of typing in the dark... or being able to have your relevant FPS keys like WASD/Shift/Control, etc etc lit up in a different color. To me that makes much more sense than using RGB on a mouse... but hey, blame razer. They're the ones who made this stuff trendy. At least in my mind.

Maybe if the G502 RGB has less weight I'll buy it.

I turn the LED off on the G502 now.

Where did you hear it's 6 grams lighter?

6 grams sounds like it could very well be a human error in measuring.

Sure. But my point still stands... if the G502 was lighter, or if they would just re-release the thing with a lighter weight, Logitech would have had a major hit on their hands.

They tried to release a 3366 mouse that is lighter than the G502.
so, they release the G303. It was in fact lighter but, they messed up the shape biggrin.gif

So you can now choose between not-so-good shape or a heavier mouse.

I dont think so, my 104 grams G502 is back on its box, even with 104g, its a dense mouse, feels heavier than the 106g G402...

I have the G302 also, and its dificult to play with, the buttons are too sensitive, I keep hitting mouse2 by mistake all the time, and also cramps, its a heavy mouse for this size...

One mouse that replace the g303 nicely is the Evga X5 Optical or even the Abyssus2k14 if you tapefix it correctly.

I received a set of Hotline Games Competition Level skates from Ebay today.
This makes a world of difference, i just can't believe how bad the original skates are.
The originals are no better than cellophane tape. biggrin.gif

Interesting fact: i didn't check this with the original skates but when used on a hard mat the skates around the sensor and the one under the thumbrest don't touch the surface. I checked this on an glass Icemat and the difference for the thumbrest is about 0.1mm (the thickness of one sheet of printer paper).

I'm really not sure if I want this mouse because it would mean getting used to a new mouse, which for someone with Dispraxia is harder than it ought to be :/

Anyway, my main questions are:

  • How good are the switches used here?
  • Or, rather, does the click feel satisfactory?
  • I have fairly good reaction times, and I just wonder if my Rival's pre-travel may be slightly increasing the time it takes for the computer to register a click - or rather, would this mouse with a more lighter feel-of-switch make reaction shots any easier?


Also, I can't help but ask how much the wieght impeeds the use of the mouse? I mean, if if 150g feels heavy, then maybe the gym is required? tongue.gif [But, I do understand more weight, more momentum. ]

Oh, should I wait for the release of this prophesied RBG version of the G502?

switches are very good, similar to g303's.

depends, probably a little bit.

depends on what you're used to.
