In this review, we examine Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse, a high-performance, innovative gaming mouse that supports wireless charging. For PC gamers, a high-performance gaming mouse is just as important as a fast graphics card or processor. Technically, any old mouse will allow you to play a game. But a good gaming mouse will have better performance and give you an edge while playing with your friends online.
However, what makes a good gaming mouse is the subject of intense controversy among PC gamers, with one of the most argued arguments about wireless gaming mice. Some see wireless gaming mice because they do not have a cable on which to slide, the wireless mouse being less efficient because of their low battery capacity and the increased latency caused by the wireless communication with a PC. The Logitech G502 Lightspeed, with its wireless charging system, offers a possible solution to these problems, but at a price that you might find unsavory.
The Logitech G502 Lightspeed uses a 16K Hero Optical Sensor capable of reading over 400 IPS. It also has an optical protection factor of 16,000, and Logitech noted that its latest generation products were 10 times more efficient.
The right-facing mouse weighs 4 ounces (114 g), but can be raised to 4.6 ounces (130 g) if, like me, you prefer the mouse with a little more weight. The mouse also has two RGB LED light zones that can be adjusted to different types of light according to your tastes. Logitech also equipped this mouse with a total of 11 buttons, all fully programmable, including the main mouse buttons.
The Lightspeed G502 takes advantage of Logitech's Lightspeed wireless technology to establish a connection with extremely low delay. It can also be used as a wired game mouse if you simply connect it using the USB charging cable.
The Logitech PowerPlay mouse pad, priced at $ 99.99. This rather expensive mouse pad is what makes the G502 Lightspeed really stand out from the competition, as it serves as both a wireless charging platform and a wireless receiver. This means that the mouse will never die when it is used with the PowerPlay mouse pad, because it will still be in charge until you lift it too far from the counter. There will also be a significant improvement as the distance between the transmitter and receiver is reduced to the point where they are in the direction of transmission. .
PCMag reports that during testing, the use of the mouse was exceptionally comfortable and that the reviewer did not encounter any noticeable bug when using the mouse. He also noted that you could not see the RGB LED lights directly when the mouse was in use, but I do not personally agree with that, as can be said of almost all RGB LED mice.
If we quickly add some competitive products, such as Dark Core RGB SE by CorsairIt should be noted that the Logitech G502 is a little late. This mouse is not only half the price of Logitech G502, but it also supports wireless charging on a cheaper $ 79.99 mouse pad and a similar high-end 16,000 DPI optical sensor. In this comparison, things get worse for Logitech when you consider that the Dark Core RGB SE also supports wireless Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 2.4G connections. The Logitech G502 may not be bad, but its price is considerably higher than that, and it seems unjustified to make a frontal comparison of the specifications.
