Gaming Mouse Logitech G502 Proteus Core: new design, new sensor Notify appearance on sale
Pros: Sophisticated ergonomics, aggressive styling, a new sensor, high-quality materials and equipment
Cons: The design can not please everyone
Logitech peripherals gained deserved popularity due to a combination of functionality, quality and ergonomics. However, conservative look, especially against aggressive design competition is not very suited for some users, especially the younger generation. Released in 2013 model Logitech G602 showed the company’s desire to change. Logitech G502 Proteus Core continues this trend, and in the end, we’ll see that in addition to the catchy appearance, can offer users this gaming mouse.
Another emerging trend – a reduction and simplification of packaging peripherals clearly evident in this case. In a compact box with magnetic clasp has a mouse, a set of documents and case-weighting with weights.
Design and Ergonomics
From the standpoint of appearance Logitech G502 is the successor of design decisions embodied in the G602. Hull became darker and light gray glossy inserts were replaced. Additional keys got chopped form, which added some design aggression. At first glance, the combination of smooth hull lines, brightly illuminated logo on podladonnoy surface and glossy inserts makes the design somewhat clumsy, but in this case we have no office to go to a high-end gaming manipulator. And departure from the conservative style of the previous generations of controllers can only be welcome.
Logitech G502 Proteus Core – ergonomic mouse and a wonderful medium sized fits in a small or medium-sized brush, but the owners of large hands can be uncomfortable due to the small width of the body. Encouraged by the fact that the search for a new design, Logitech has not departed from the usual attention to ergonomics. Mouse literally felt a glove in hand and each key is in place. Contribute to a secure grip with textured rubber sidewall texture.
First and foremost, I want to note the major keys to mimic the position of fingers on the mouse during use. Additional keys G8 and G7, the default is responsible for changing resolution sensor, located within reach of the index finger and the side keys G4 and G5, responsible for navigation in the browser as conveniently placed under the thumb of his right hand.
Claims to the two controls. First – Extra button responsible for lowering dpi, too shifted forward because of what it has to reach that, however, eliminates false depression. And the second – the metal scroll wheel, which, in spite of the two rotation modes – normal and inertial and horizontal scrolling function, use is not as convenient as we would like because of the slippery surface. Also noticeable weight he added inertia.
As for the mass of the manipulator, there Logitech gives users the right to choose balance adjustment with 5 complete weight of the weighting 3.6 grams each. To install the weights need to remove the bottom panel on the magnetic latch. Careful compartment structure allows enough flexibility to change and mass balance device.
Using this parameter Logitech G502 Proteus Core can be called the most advanced mouse, as in the line of game controllers, and in the market. The mouse is equipped with the world’s first optical sensor with a resolution of 12,000 dpi, although it is difficult to imagine the situation in which you can benefit from such a value, in this case, it is rather a tribute to marketing than absolute must. Other features are the same mouse at: 1000Hz polling rate and the reaction rate of 1ms. All 11 keys are built on mechanical switches, and a resource for the main keys is 20 million keystrokes. Each key has a short and distinct way.
When you configure the mouse settings using the Logitech Gaming Software, the user has the opportunity to choose between the internal memory and save its settings in one of the three available profiles, or choose to save on your PC. Traditional LGS capabilities added for G502 and exclusive option to calibrate the sensor for a specific igrovyuyu surface.
Logitech G502 Proteus Core – a fresh look at the quality Logitech gamepad. The updated design, highest possible equipment and software as well as physical settings make the mouse one of the most advanced on the market. Pleased with the fact that ergonomics has not suffered for the sake of design, which allows to use the mouse for games of different genres and for everyday work.
