(Beware of Seller changes! That's when you may get burned!)

:: PRO ::
1.) Replaced a $100.00 Logitech Laser Cordless & it does a better job by far!
2.) I like the weight & use most of them, preferring a heavier mouse.
3.) I'm about 6'-6" and little over 200 lbs - this thing fits my giant hands fairly well ;)
4.) Lights are cool & people will like it, but for me I use them to visually see the mode I'm in.
5.) Fully customizable RGB LED, you can set color, cycle speed & mode indicators.
6.) SUPER accurate, it is better then my Laser and I find that surprising.

:: CONS ::
1.) The cord hangs up until you get it 'use to' your desktop setup.
2.) Really miss the cordless days, but this mouse catches every signal & the slightest movements.
3.) The RGB is usually not prominent as it's under your hand or in sleep mode.

:: OVERALL :: I HATE CORDS, but I love this mouse so I am torn. I need to be highly accurate in my video, photography & gaming life, the Proteus Spectrum enhanced all my computer work & play! I have bought 2 of them now & dropped them both several times hard....they still work perfectly and remain accurate. Seriously this mouse brought my K/D up to new highs, it's so much better then the cordless laser I am still kind of in shock. It's a gaming AND business must have. Using this for websites, photo editing & detail alignments in Adobe is a dream come true.

DON'T FORGET IT's EVEN GOT MACROS!?!? I don't use them to their full potential, but the few macros I have are awesome!

In 2018, this is still one of the best gaming mice you can buy. It has amazing build quality, an amazing sensor, and amazing buttons.

Going over the design, its a right handed mouse that is trying to be like the classic MX518 with a twist, and it does a good job at that. Depending on your hand size, it works with any grip style. It has that "gamery" look while at the same time looks professional and minimalistic. Not many companies can make a product like that. Design gets an A+.

Now for features, this mouse packs a punch. Here are the features you get with this mouse:

Well tension-ed button, easy to click but not too easy to click accidentally. RGB lighting, you can change the color of the Logitech Logo and DPI lighting, unfortunately these are only single zone, so if you change the color of the logo, you also change the color of the DPI lighting.

Pixart PMW3366 Sensor, this sensor was introduced in 2014 with the Proteus Core, and is still one of the best sensors on the market to this day. It can track pixel to pixel movements, it also won't lose track at ANY DPI level, and it can track up to 12,000 DPI.

Weight tuning, this mouse is around 120 grams without any of the weights, so it is rather heavy, while some will appreciate a heavy mouse this may be a deal breaker for others.

Free spinning scroll wheel, this mouse has a wheel like some of the performance mice. Push a button and you unlock free scroll, which is great for navigating long documents or just having fun, haha. It also tilts left and right, which can be re-programmed.

There's many more features with this mouse as well, it sure packs a punch!

The lighting is very minimal. You can change the color of the Logitech Logo and the DPI lighting, with 16.8 million color options to choose from. Unfortunately, these lights are under 1 zone, so you everything has to be the same color. However, this isn't much of an issue considering the lighting is already very minimal, which isn't a bad thing. You do also have 3 lighting effects: Breating, Fixed Color or Color Cycle. Overall, lighting gets an A+.

Now, lets talk about the sensor. The sensor is the PMW3366, which is a modified 3360. And this is arguably one of the best sensors on the market. It doesn't lose track when you flick it as fast as you can, at any DPI level. It tracks pixel to pixel movements at high and low DPI, and is capable of tracking at 12,000 DPI. If you have sensor issues, you either need to calibrate your mouse pad or your product is defective. Sensor gets an A+.

Now, the software. This mouse is powered by the Logitech Gaming Software. The UI is friendly and the program is very stable, its like Synapse 2.0 and Corsair CUE came together. In the software you can program the buttons, change profiles, change the lighting and much much more! You can also sync the lighting with other Logitech RGB products, which is a nice touch. The best part is, once you have setup your mouse the way you want it, you can uninstall the software because this mouse has onboard memory to keep your settings!

This mouse isn't just good for gaming, its great for productivity. I really enjoy using this mouse for things like media creation and general productivity. Its ergonomic, it tracks amazing, and it overall just works.

Would I recommend this? Absolutely! The weight might be a let down for some, but if you don't care about the weight, this mouse is amazing!

ok i have this mouse a while.. even if i wanted to give it a bad review i could not.. not only does it work perfectly.. it works perfectly on any surface and has "on mouse memory" so even if you format,crash, or even change pc's it has all your setttings ready to go first time every time.
but is that all ? no frankly i have about 30 mice range from 2 dollars to 160 bucks and this mouse is the best yah you heard me. its out preforming my 160 dollar mice hands DOWN !

i am not only impressed now im spoiled i love it so much i started giving away and selling other mice in hopes to get 1 for home and 1 for travel. the dpi "jibberish" they give you does NOT do this thing justice.

also the cord is VERY long and protected by both plastic and a cloth sheath
man im a fan guys logitech this thing is made for me my only suggestion is make a cleaning tool cuz i find if you eat ANYTHING or have some "dead skin" it tends to get stuck in the devits on the left side (thumb side) as the incurve of the rubber makes a bit tougher to clean so not perfection but damn close

does not slip, no dpi loss, easy to use, idiot proof tough very sensitive works on anything including reflective tops mouse pads beds human skin tin cups water bottles (ok i got bored 1 day and just started seeing how well it would work on various surfaces.. shockingly it works on damn near anything with little to no effort or u can use the "learn surfaces" command.

long story short you want a mouse for gaming or just office/long term use so yah dont cramp up .. buy 1-2 of these suckers it even is better than some of later models by the same company...

I'd like to preface this review by stating that, even though I am not the primary user of this mouse, my incredibly patient husband took a lot of time answering my many questions about this mouse, demonstrated what it does, and read through my review before I submitted it so all of the information in here is accurate.

My husband is an IT guy and computer gamer so he always purchases a programmable gaming mouse whenever he needs a new one. Prior to this mouse, he had the Logitech G500 Programmable Gaming Mouse which he really liked so when that one started wearing out after three years, he started searching for a good replacement. There was another mouse that he wanted instead of this one but it was older so he decided to purchase this one, since it is basically the newer version of the G500 and he really liked the number of programmable buttons (this was a requirement of his and the main reason he purchased this mouse).

We have now had this mouse for almost two months and my husband is very happy with it. Initially, he was hesitant on purchasing this mouse because of the cost. He typically prefers to spend about $50 for a mouse and this one was $30 more when we bought it so this mouse was a bit more expensive than his usual purchase but it is really growing on him after using it for a couple months. When I first laid my eyes on the mouse, it looked like it's something from the future with how technical it looks!

***The following information is taken directly from the packaging.***
What's In the Box:
Mouse
Tuning weights and case
User Documentation

What You Need:
USB Port
Internet connection for optional software download
Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, or Windows 7

Now, back to my review. Upon opening the box, my husband immediately set to work setting up his mouse for his gaming specifications. There are 11 programmable buttons which you can calibrate depending on how much you use them and you can always change them. You are also able to set up the buttons that will apply for all different games you play or you can set up each game differently with the mouse. For instance, my husband has the left button as his running mode since he uses that so much but he could set up the right button for running in a different game if he wanted. The cord is made of a braided material rather than plastic and is a good length. My husband also doesn't currently use a mouse pad so he was able to program the mouse to be more sensitive to a desk and it moves smoothly on his desk. This mouse has a great, ergonomic feel and is very comfortable to use. My husband has big hands and this mouse is a good size for him. So far it's even withstood our twin toddlers pressing the buttons and playing around with it, which is always a good thing! The symbol on the top of the mouse changes colors which I personally think is pretty cool.

Overall, my husband is very happy with this mouse even though he was skeptical at first because of the higher cost. It isn't his favorite mouse only because he liked his older ones better but since those are very hard to find, this one was the option that best suits his needs. He uses it while gaming, working remotely on his work computer, and everything in between and hasn't had any complaints about it. If anything happens that alters his opinion or we think of any more information to add, I will update this review but he said this product currently deserves a five-star rating because it does what he wants and he gets a lot of daily use out of it. He highly recommends it!

This mouse feels great, looks great and works great. The G502 can be customized every which way I could imagine. The RGB system works flawlessly and looks great although I really whish they had added more light sources, only having 1 G symbol with a light is kind of disappointing as it does not add much the the beauty of RGB lighting like I would have wanted. The other thing I have a love/hate relationship with is the darn mouse wheel, I love it's free roll feature with a click of a button it is free spinning, click it again and we are back to the clicks, the bad part is that the wheel is weighted and has no rubber what so ever making it awkward feeling until you get used to it (a strip of rubber would have been nice around the scroll wheel). This mouse also goes up to 12,000 DPI, why you would need that I have no clue but it is there. This thing has buttons galore but very well placed only finding myself accidentally here or there hitting the dpi down switch (which can be remapped anyways). The G-Shift button is also very well placed and can also be remapped but works great for FPS when you need to slow down that DPI instantly for that killer headshot with precision. Last thing to talk about is the weights, people already claim the mouse is heavy without but i found myself still adding more weights which G502 comes with 5 weights to tailor this mouse perfectly to your style. Final thoughts on this mouse, give me more RGB lighting but other than that I have nothing bad in any way to say about this mouse although if you are left handed you are out of luck as it is only a right handed mouse but can be held in any form style easily and comfortably.

-I've used heavy mice pretty much my entire life, starting from an old Logitech wireless mouse that required 2 AAA batteries. I have tried using light-weight mice before but felt they were way too easy to move.
-I don't use the included weights since it feels heavy enough as it is.
-The amount of buttons it has is enough for my daily and gaming needs.
-Locations of the buttons are ergonomical for my small/medium sized hands.
-Software from Logitech is generally amazing for customization.
-Looks pretty cool.
-Infinite scrolling option is amazing for when you need it. However, it's a bit sensitive and takes practice if you want to be able to use for everything.
DPI Shift button is too far and would require putting my hand in an uncomfortable position if I were to use it for (example) sniping. I also have found no practical reason to use DPI Shift.
-The amount of DPI this mouse offers is too much for me. On my desktop (windows), a DPI of 1300 is sufficiently fast and translates over to my FPS requirements pretty nicely (with 75 sensitivity on PUBG).
-Personally, I like wired mice over wireless because having to worry about battery problems (there are many) should not be a thing. Also, for a room like mine filled with electronics, I don't need to worry about signal interference. The wire for this mouse is also nicely threaded.

I absolutely love this mouse. I have bought two, and am looking at buying a third to live in my laptop bag (I HATE touchpad mice). It fits so well into my fairly large hands, is very precise, and I love the DPI switching, especially the 200 dpi "sniper mode". I play games on a treadmill, and as such, my hands bounce just a bit. This mouse makes it a lot easier to enjoy my games.
I also use this for 3D design for printing, and it is a pleasure to be able to rapidly shift between sensitivities when you are doing different movements with the mouse.
Buttons are nice and tactile, not too hard to push, but not too soft either. Has a nice premium feel, love the weights. I prefer a heavier mouse, so I have all the weights in, but that, again, is what I want. Being able to customize the colors is fun as well. This is more of a gimmick to me, but it still is fun.
I went from a Logitech cordless mouse to this one, and I can tell you for sure that the response time is faster. Plus, no more dead batteries.

Logitech did a great job with this mouse. The optical sensor is a notable change from the laser I was using, and I frankly like everything about this mouse.

While your thumb doesn't go below the mouse it rests in a comfortable alcove with a grippy rubber (also where your ring and pinky fingers are) so it's both comfortable and easy to grip, and pick up to reposition.

The thumb tip button while easy to push will never be misclicked, honestly if you never wanted to use it you'll forget it's there but the dpi shift is great for hyper accurate moments, like sniping.

The pointer finger has an indentation adding again to the comfort. The mouse is smaller in general on the palm resting area, picture reaching for a door knob, that's about the position your hand will be in with this mouse.

The logitech software that controls there equipment is very easy to use. It auto loads the mouse and you can click to customize any of the buttons or DPI settings including 3 profiles.

To summarize I've tried a lot of mouses and after 2-3 days per mouse I keep coming back to this one.

The Good:
The G502 feels so comfortable in the hand, thanks to its sleek design that fits the hand like a glove and also to the rubber material used on the back to gives traction and prevent hand slip. Also the G502 looks amazing on the desktop with its RBG light that is customizable to your preference.

The mouse buttons are also customizable in the Logitech gaming software which is a very nice touch and can also help with some of the bad issues in the mouse as we will discuss later.

The weights included in the package provide another customizable feature to the mouse especially for people that use the mouse on different surfaces. the weights can easily be accessed, removed and placed.

The G502 also allows for switching profiles and changing DPI on the go, also with the thumb shoulder button you can temporarily reduce the DPI for landing perfect shots in game. All the buttons are available on the upperside of the mouse and none are available below, which provides easy access and swift changes. They are also located in areas that not prone to be clicked unintentionally.

I have also experienced the support service of logitech when my mouse wheel failed to click. I noticed that after 3 months of use that my middle mouse was functioning as normal but the click sound when you press the wheel was missing. I contacted Logitech support team, they inquired about the issue then they raised a support case. Finally I received a replacement G502 for my broken mouse in the mail. The whole experience was smooth and took less than 30 days, I was not even asked to return the old broken G502.

The Bad:
The mouse middle wheel button is where the mouse fall short. Its metallic like finish gives it a very slippery surface that is not comfortable especially for someone who use it to change weapons during online gameplay. I found myself mapping the the side (G4 and G5) buttons to change weapons rather than using the weapon wheel.

The Ugly:
None so far.

4.5 stars

This is for right hand users only so don't buy it if you are a lefty.

Kind of heavy. This is not a lightweight mouse like the BenQ Zowie. More like the weight of a Razer Naga Hex V2. I'm surprised because I would figure it would be more lighter. Boy I was wrong. I suppose this is because of the weight of the rubber grips on the left, right, and underneath the mouse where the weights go as well as a magnet to keeps the bottom cover intact (no, this assessment didn't include the weights).

Being someone who likes very light mice to lift and prevent hand fatigue, the tuning weights don't do much for me. You can place up to 5 weights inside the bottom of the mouse to "tune". They can be arranged in different locations. One caveat is that they cause the mouse to create more friction to the mouse mat. If you got a fiber cloth mouse pad, it'll probably wear more using these weights.

It feels kind of cheap. I say this because if I lift the mouse and drop it on the mat, it has a plastic hollow kind of sound. Tapping on the plastic surface has a higher "tinny" kind of sound compared to my other gaming mice.

Placement of the buttons are good. The one button that I don't care much for is the one near the thumb grip. It is located just a tad too far away from my thumb which causes me to shift my hand towards it. Losing that grip is not good for fast paced FPS games as you have to reset your palm. As a result, I claw more than palm with this mouse.

The scroll wheel is very good. I like the "infinite scroll" where it just spins forever. There is also a button on top that forces it into grooved steps.

Software wise, you use the Logitech Gaming Framework. Setting up is pretty much straightforward. You assign mouse functions, keystrokes, and multi key macros (keys only, no mouse operations). The UI is hard to read though because of the black mouse image. They should have just created two images - Top View and Left Side View to avoid the clutter and make the buttons easier to recognize.

The curvature of the thumb area is very good and the grips on the left and right sides are excellent. However, I'll leave it to time to determine if those grips start to lose their stickiness and erode. The rubber is pretty hard so I expect the inlay pattern to not wear fast.
