Oh, yeah I know that but on one hand I kinda like it, on the other it's a bit distracting in a dark room. Plus it doesn't match the red lighting on my CM Storm Trigger.


If no issues come up in the following weeks then I can finally replace my worn out G500.

On spec this seems lighter than the G700s, however no one has commented that the G700s is heavy but instead on the G502. I use a G700s and I do alot of lifting and feel the weight of the mouse mostly due to the battery I supposed. Anyone who has use both thinks the G502 will solve my problem?

You can turn it off in the software?

Whoa really? I searched High and low for a off option.
I guess I will search some more tonight. Well I guess this mouse is getting better for me smile.gif

Now I just ned to order some new feet for it so I can trim down my cable length to 20 inches. I use the mouse shared between a laptop and my desktop, so I dont have a need for that long cable.

People who complain about weight i think i have maybe a way to reduce the weight without compromising anything.

First you remove the weight lid , but as someone said that will make the mouse tilt a bit , but i will get to that in a moment.



If you are experienced in opening mice (nothing too hard actually) , try to remove the magnet inside the mouse im not sure what type of retention it has but i think its snaped in to place .




So now you have removed 2 magnets and a weight lid not really sure how much that is in grams because i dont have the mouse yet.

But we need to resolve the tilt problem that comes with taking the weight lid and the 2 mouse feet that come with it.

My idea is to buy mouse feet close to this shape:


You might have to stack 2 or 3 depending on the thickness.

I recomend this set :



You might have to cut them to fit perfectly or just use another set and dont use the full space in the white line.
They come in 2 different thicknesses, you can always use caliper rule to ensure the mouse is perfectly flat to the mm.

This is takasta store, a fellow reviewer and member of this forum, i've bought many mouse feet from here, always very good quality cheap and fast.

If your problem wasnt the mouse weight itself but actually the center of mass being upfront , after this you can add 1 or 2 weights in the back to help.


P.s I take no credit for these pictures i know that actually they were taken from members in this forum, so i hope i dont upset anyone.

I use this ptfe tape for my mice, i put it over their original feet.
it's cheap and lasts for years...i find it very useful because it glides better on cloth pads and i use a less wide area than the original feet

I felt no tilt without the weight lid, but good idea InVicT2009.

some other points for my taste:

+
long mouse buttons (a very rare feature)
cable - I like the sleekness
shape - I am surprised, but I really like it

o
Sniper button - position is ok

-
long travelway for mousbutton 1 and 2 to the trigger point (particularly in comparison to the M45)
thumb buttons have a (not sharp) ledge - depends how you trigger it
to narrow for me - there is no position for the ringfinger without bending it (maybe more relevant for palm grippers)

Pros:

The grip is fantastic on the G502. Really well made and feels "high end". Much better than the Pure in this department. The Pure coating is slippery for my hands.

Sensor is one of the best I have ever tried out. Simply AMAZING. Pure is not bad either but Logitech G502 blows it out of the water.

Shape of the mouse fits my hands perfectly. I am already comfortable using it. It took me a week or two to get use to the Pure.

Buttons are great. Same quality as Pure. Very easy to press and great feedback.

Cord is as great. I thought Pure had a great braided cord but once again Logitech outdid Roccat in this department. Very flexible and well made.

Cons:

As everyone has said... the weight is a con. NOT as big as I thought it might be but it is still a con.

Wheel: Pure has one of the best wheels I have tried. This is where Logitech wheel loses to Pure. I am usually a big fan of Logitech wheels but not on this mouse. The wheel is just heavy, loose, and the feedback of the wheel when set to precision is not that great. I love the fast scroll part of the wheel and when you press it is fantastic... but when I play a FPS I want nice feedback on my wheel when I switch weapons but this mouse doesn't deliver that nice feedback.

Color scheme (personal): I wish they made a red color version or be able to pick the LED color. The light blue doesn't match my black and red theme computer.

Sniper button... TOO easy to press. I love the option of having it and its great when gaming, but needs to be moved a bit further away from my thumb.

Feedback: Make the wheel plastic... It would make the mouse lighter and cheaper too. No need for such a wheel on this mouse.

Overall... I am in love with this mouse. Unless they come out with an updated G9x (my favorite mouse of all time next to Microsoft WMO)... this mouse has become my third favorite mouse of all time.
Sorry I doubted you Logitech... I hope you keep listening to your customers. I love your brand and I own many of your products (Harmony Ultimate and many more). Thanks for creating quality products.thumb.gif

Thanks for your review, but can you please tell me which mouse grip you use and how many cm/360° ?

You're welcome. My grip depends on what I'm doing. It goes from claw grip to finger tip grip. You can kind of palm grip this mouse but it feels a bit weird. I don't know about my cm/360° but I play 800 dpi when playing FPS like BF4 and Titanfall... 1600 to 2400 when playing Dota 2 and when in desktop. My "sniper" button is set to 400dpi.

Used almost the same dpi setting on my Pure optical... Except max dpi I used on that mouse was 1600. Anything above that felt inaccurate... Unlike G502... The tracking on the G502 is great.
