G502 Pros and Cons for Logitech to fix with its next shell for this sensor

post #1 of 220
Thread Starter 
Pros
- As noted by several other people, probably the best mouse sensor ever released

- Clicks are good and precise


Cons
- Heavier than most people will probably like

- Mouse has a forced claw grip shape (to me at least). Moving around a heavy mouse like this in a claw grip will probably give you carpal tunnel within a few days. Even though I prefer to use fingertip and clawgrip, it's better to not have a forced grip so you can switch to another grip style to alleviate fatigue when using a mouse for a long period of time, like how you can grip a Xai a million different ways.

- Scroll wheel is made of a combination of solid lead and depleted uranium, which throws the mouse balance off. It also sticks up too high and is awkward to use as a bindable key in games. Low profile, low weight, rubber wheels are always superior for any gaming purpose such as on the Diamondback, Xai, etc.

- Sniper Button - Although it doesn't really bother me because the forced claw shape doesn't make my fingers hit it, the sniper button will be considered more of a nuisance than benefit by most people and should probably be removed. I have medium size hands, people with large hands will probably be bothered by the button.

- Mouse feet - One of the biggest blunders of this mouse. The mouse glides semi-ok, but could be much better if they just gave us two normal shaped front and back pads. Mouse also seems to glide much better to me without the bottom cover on, which seems like somewhat of a problem.

This is what we want our mouse feet to look like Logitech:

Not four, randomly shaped, volcanic islands

G9X body with no changes or extra buttons + G502 sensor + easier to press mouse 3 = perfection

I wish Logitech would actually listen to us instead of making something just to make a quick buck. The only good thing about this mouse would probably be the sensor and that's about it unless it breaks and you remove the cable and use the mouse to flip steaks on the grill. I feel like the more advanced Logitech try to be the worse the products become.

I have to agree with the mouse feet though. The Avior has some of the best stock feet I've ever experienced using.

Knowing how many people loved the G9X and want it to return and them not doing anything about it is absurd. Charging $100 for the G9X with laser sensor back in the day was a big no no but now its a different story with the G502 sensor.

Seconded. Even when the mirror finish on the feet was gone nothing else I've tried has come close to the smooth glide on the Avior.

edit: btw has any electrician genius looked at the G502 PCB pics and determined whether or not Frankenmice are viable with this sensor?

Agree on every point made.

Great sensor, everything else overthought that went bad.

Put that sensor in a G100 shell and I'm happy tongue.gif
