Coming off the back of our last mouse review, the SteelSeries Sesnei Wireless, today we’ll be covering an offering from one of the other big hitters, in the shape of the Logitech G502 Proteus Core. The G502 is Logitech’s model below the G602 we covered previously and eschews the wireless capability in the process to bring the G502 into the reach of the wider public. Style wise, the G502 pursues an angular design flanked with the blue/black design familiar with Logitech’s ‘G’ gaming range. As with all Logitech products, the G502 looks to be feature rich, well built and backed by an ever impressive three year warranty.

What Logitech say about the G502 Proteus Core:
No matter the playing field, you are tuned to win! Wood, Laminate, Steel, Mouse Pad, all surfaces have different properties. Proteus Core makes sure that no matter where or what you game on, your mouse is optimized.FPS, MMO, RTS, whatever game style, surface, or competition that you are up against – Proteus Core is your answer.
At the same RRP as the G602, the G502 sits in odd position. The G502 has less buttons than the G602 and no wireless functionality, but comes with some specific profile options we’ll cover later in the review and configurable weights, owing to the ‘tunable’ nature of the mouse Logitech want to push. Time to get accustomed with the G502, the, and see where tuning capability rears its head.
