Does the perfect gaming mouse exist? The G502 X is close if it wasn’t for the darn price

With the G502 X, Logitech has introduced a gaming mouse and the successor to its popular G502 Hero. Yet Is it worth upgrading to the new model or buying a new one for all users who want to buy a G502 for the first time? MeinMMO editor Benedikt Schlotmann was able to test the gaming mouse for you.

Logitech’s G502 Hero is one of the most popular gaming mice in the world and is still regularly among the best-selling gaming accessories. It was therefore not surprising that Logitech had presented three new models for the G502 Hero.

The G502 Hero is one of my absolute favorites when it comes to gaming mice. So there was great joy when Logitech presented the new models. In the meantime I’ve been able to test the G502 X Lightspeed extensively and tell you why Logitech has greatly improved the mouse in many ways – but also why it’s difficult for me to give a clear purchase recommendation for all users.

What does the scope of delivery look like? In the box are all the important things I need to gamble. This includes a USB-C charging cable, a Lightspeed receiver for wireless connection, an extension cable for the adapter and the manual. There is also a cover for the sniper button. You can remove and cover the button if you’re not going to use it anyway.

How is the mouse constructed? You can get the G502 X Lightspeed in both a white and a black design. There really aren’t any differences except for the colors.

  • The main buttons are on the top of the mouse. In between there is a 4-way mouse wheel and in front of it two small switches. With one you can change the DPI level, with the other you can switch between the profiles. There are two more buttons in the index finger area on the front left.
  • There are 3 more buttons on the left side. Two are directly under the palm and the 3rd button is far forward, the so-called “sniper button”.
  • In the lower area, Logitech uses a ribbed thumb rest. As a result, the thumb rests securely on the mouse.

In contrast to the competition from Roccat or Razer, Logitech completely dispenses with RGB lighting in the G502 X Lightspeed. At least the “G” was illuminated on the previous G502 Hero. If you want RGB lighting, you have to pay 20 euros more for the G502X Plus Lightspeed.

Otherwise, the G502 X Lightspeed is an ergonomic right-handed mouse.

The G502 X Lightspeed has a high-quality finish. Nothing rattles during the shaking test and the mouse seems stable to me. The only annoying thing is that the Lightspeed receiver cannot be attached properly inside the mouse.

If you transport the mouse with the receiver inside, you will hear the receiver clicking. For a “150 Euro” mouse, this is annoying and unnecessary in my opinion. The same problem already existed with the G502 Hero and was annoying here.

software

In my opinion, Logitech’s G-Hub software is one of the better representatives when it comes to gaming software.

  • Razer’s software suite seems bloated, with a number of additional functions.
  • Roccat’s “Swarm” offers a number of functions, but can quickly become very confusing for newcomers.
  • The SteelSeries Engine tries to provide functionality for gamers and streamers alike, but it has always been too much for me.

Logitech’s “G Hub” offers exactly what I need here: I open my device’s page and can set up all functions directly here. I don’t see ads for other devices, options for streaming, or requests to like things or take prizes.

It’s also interesting that I can download the community’s mouse settings and import them for my device. In practice, I’ve actually never done it, because I prefer to make my own settings.

On the next page you will find my assessment of the weight, ergonomics and battery life of the wireless gaming mouse. In the final conclusion, I also explain to you for whom the mouse is worthwhile and what could (still) speak against a purchase.
