Soooo many people here are mad at Logitech for not making the mouse you and I want, while from a business standpoint that was probably the wisest decision possible.

Why do you think logitech switched from "cheap looking but reliable" to the flashy gaming look? Because they lost market share to products that are far inferior but offer what the stupid crowd of customers want. Like LEDs with customization options, cool looks etc.

I for once appreciate that while they now appeal to that look they still push performance. Which other manufacturer has pushed mouse technology in recent years? And no, the 3310 is not a big deal, it's very similar to the 3090.

Logitech's youtube channel has been very educational regarding the G502. As Cpate demonstrated, you can spin the scroll wheel and admire how long it keeps spinning. This can easily be done during death timers to keep your fingers limber when you're having an off night. Also, as demonstrated in a second video In case anyone breaks into your house you can throw the weights at them! Also viable at LAN.

I apologize for being overly harsh on these gimmicks potentially life saving features.

The biggest user of the high mass infinite scroll wheels are the radiologists that work for my hospital. They won't use a mouse without it. Of course that means nothing to gamers, but there is a market for them. The weights have their place. There are a lot of people that want a mouse that's heavy enough that in the event of an emergency they can chuck it over the edge of their boat and tie it down. Then there are the people that like RAT 7/9/mmo mice and can't shake the feeling that they need something a hair heavier.

"The sensor in Proteus Core is an optical system that is illuminated by an IR LED. The base physical architecture, (light source, lens, sensor) is very similar to the G100s or G602 sensor - but the sensor itself is totally new. The 12k CPI max is achieved natively and without compromise to tracking fidelity." -CPate

i guess i mistook similar for "modified" when i originally read this.

The butthurt is strong with this one.


Seriously, the trolling is getting a little out of hand. We get it, you guys are upset they didn't make your mouse. Move on. For all we know they are in development on a g9 replacement. Even if they could tell us (which he already stated he can't), would you really expect a response to petulant childish goading?

Edit: just so we're clear, nobody wants a new g9 more than I. I've made more than one thread about it over the past couple years.

If you really enjoy the shape of the DA, you will need a lot of adjustment for the 502 and may not like it or be willing to go through the growing pains. If you enjoy the shape of the old school mx518 or are coming from a G9x, you will be absolutely in love with the 502. It is way more comfortable then it looks lol.

The left click on the DA is definitely in a better location then the 502, whose achilles heel IMO is the skinny LMB and the DPI buttons right on the edge. It takes a few rounds to get used to, since you need to click straight down and not on a slant to keep from hitting it. The sensor makes it worth it to me. The button itself is fine - no side to side play (unlike the way too loose scroll wheel), no bouncing, and a nice crisp click without any excessive travel or sloppyness.

Thanks! Looks like I will have to go to best buy and try it out. I like my DA2013 but I want to try something different thats a little smaller. I've been reading about the Zowie EC2 Evo, looks like a smaller DA from what I've seen.

I'm merely sharing my learning experience. Others may have been asking the same questions like why a weight system for a mouse that is already heavier than most others? Why a free spinning scroll wheel on a gaming mouse? I found these answers in these videos made by logitech. I was too narrow minded before so i apologized.

Not trolling at all. I linked to the videos. not like I made anything up... or are you saying Logitech is trolling themselves?

Oh derp you are back !
I agree with you, the market for casual gamers that want 90k dpi is filled. Now they need to fill the market of professional gamers that want a light ambidextrous high performance mouse.

Received the mouse today, played some BF4 and CSGO.

What I like about it:

- The sensor feels amazing, better than all the 3090 mice I've tried, feels even better than the 3310; very very accurate and snappy.
- The shape is not bad at all, played around three and a half hours straight and my hand didn't get tired or cramped at all.
- The buttons feel very nice (Omrons?) easy to click but not too easy that you click by accident (looking at you DA 2013).
- Coating, feet, and rubber sides all feel really nice and the coating doesn't hold finger prints like on the Rival.

What I don't like:

- The weight, it's not the brick I was expecting but it's still too heavy for my taste, feels considerably heavier than the Rival and this can get tiring on long gaming sessions specially if you are a low sens player.
- The "sniper" button, this is the real deal breaker for me. My hand is 19 cm from base to tip of middle finger (Medium/Small?) and use a palm/claw grip. The problem is the sniper button is too far back and my thumb will accidentally click it all the time, I disabled the button to prevent unwanted actions but it still takes away from the ergonomics of the mouse and it becomes really annoying to constantly click the button by accident mad.gif

I will probably end up returning the mouse, I would have gotten used to the weight since everything else is really nice. But the damned sniper button annoys the crap out of me and I'm pretty sure I will never get used to that. I hope Logitech releases some lighter mice with the same great sensor. I own a couple of mice if any one would like comparison pictures let me know which mouse and I'll post some up.
