G502

General Thoughts

The top selling mouse is apparently the Logitech G502. I don't really see it as a competitive FPS mouse but for general use, it's one of the best. The infinite scroll wheel really helps when I'm video editing and browsing folders and webpages. The extra buttons along with G-Shift in the software also allows me to bind shortcuts. It's all about productivity. I can still play games with it. I think it would be great for MMOs too. But being a Quake player, I go for smaller and lighter mice. If you aren't too competitive or you're happy just hitting quite good shots and the occasional insane shot, then this mouse will still be good in shooters. What I'm saying is, I don't think you will reach your absolute potential with this mouse, but you can still be very good with it. It's Logitech so it's a pretty solid mouse. Top optical sensor, good feel on the plastics and buttons. Great mouse. But it's heavy at 125g before you even add the weights. Thankfully the wireless isn't as much, so that's what I've focused this page on, it can get down to 112g. I use a two mouse set up so this is highly recommended as a main until you game. If budget is an issue, the G502 wired version is a great alternative for a second mouse. If you're worried about wireless, Logitech wireless is so good it's basically wired. Give it a try!
