Logitech G502 X Mouse Review - Tweakers

Logitech G502 X Mouse Review – Tweakers

Summarization

Logitech has updated its popular G502 line of mice with the G502 X series. The top model in that series, the G502 X Plus, combines a wireless mouse with RGB lighting via Lightspeed. The Lightspeed version does not have RGB lighting and the regular G502 X also works without a Lightspeed connection. All mice are slimmed in size and therefore slightly lighter than their predecessors. This weight can no longer be changed with weights, as with previous versions. The sensor is a switchable Hero 25600 dpi on-the-fly sensor that we already know, but the primary buttons are now an optical mechanism, which should improve its reliability and speed. The introductory price is exorbitant, but tends to go down a bit.

The G502 mouse is as old as the G sub-brand that Logitech keeps for its gaming products. The mouse has already gone through many iterations and the latest one has now been added: the G502 X. It is available in different variants, with and without wire, and a wireless version with RGB lighting.

The latter, which is the most luxurious model, is the G502 X PLUS and has a suggested retail price of 159 euros. The Lightspeed wireless variant without RGB costs 139 euros and the wired model without RGB costs 79 euros. All three variants have the same sensor on board and are equipped with the same switches. The wireless variants are a bit heavier than the wired version due to their built-in battery. Other features are identical. Before we take a look at the new G502 X series, let’s briefly go through the history of the G502 mice.

What we don’t do in this review is look at the benchmarks. We do not have a conclusive way to review mice against criteria. We look at features, ease of use and of course associated software.
