G502 vs G900 for Work/Study and Casual Gaming

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Was looking through some threads and didn't seem to find any on this topic so far.

So was hoping to see what everyone's opinion is on the G502 vs G900 being used more for daily use (writing, work, browsing) and some casual gaming here and there.

I currently use a Razer Orochi and find them to be a bit too small to be used over long periods of time.

So I'm kind of undecided on whether to still keep the Orochi for travelling since its wireless and get the G502 for my daily driver.

OR...

Perhaps replace the need for the Orochi completely with the G900 and use that as my daily driver as well.

I like the shape of the G502 as it seems to contour better with the thumb rest for right-handers and I'm worried that the G900's shape is way too similar to the Orochi which may put me off using it (although the G900 is obviously bigger).

Hopefully I can get some good input on this before the sales end.

G502 - going for $69 AUD - $51 USD
G900 - going for $159 AUD - $118 USD

Thank guys!

-Both mice are overkill for work/study tbh
-Any comparison to the Orochi is laughable
-Both mice should be more comfortable (larger, and neither is the Orochi)
-G900 is better overall, esp. w/ wireless in consideration
-Boils down to shape vs price, since weight doesn't seem to be an issue.

I've actual got a 602 and love it. I work 40 hours a week with it. I tried the 502 for a week, and found the thumb rest to be too low. as a righty with quite a bit larger than normal hands. The 602 was more comfortable, and the better programmable macro buttons were btter located (for me at least).

If the wieght isn't a factor, then go for the cheaper one which is the G502. However, the G900 has a better shape and is more comfortable, but I'm biased because I prefer ambidextrous mice. I don't have the G900 myself, but I have tried it and prefered it over the G502 which is one of many mice that are dusting in a corner, mostly because of its wieght and size.

If you're doing mostly productivity related tasks and much less gaming (casual at that) then you should look into cheaper mice, if you don't need the performance.

I think if the price doesnt matter, both are good casual gaming mice. Just decide if you want a wireless mouse or a wired one. Build quality is top and the rest doesnt matter for casual gaming.

since when mice like g502 and g900 destined for competitive gaming turned into casual?? that's awkward. you could call rival 100, kinzu v3, xornet I, are destined for casual gaming, lol

Suspect he means that "Casual Gaming" means nothing, whilst those engaged in serious "Professional Gaming" matter, due to being paid to Game for their Sponsors hence earning a living.

Don't blame me if I got this wrong here because OCN is home for misconstrued meanings ninja.gif .

Well there's plenty of half decent players that aren't getting payed.

I look at casual and non casual like this:

Casual:
  • Plays a few times a week
  • Doesn't care about how he performs
  • Just wants to have fun

Non Casual:
  • Plays every night he isn't going out or obliged to do other IRL stuff
  • Cares about his performance, wants to win
  • Fun is mostly achieved because of the satisfaction of winning or doing beyond normal performances
