The Logitech G502 gaming mouse was originally introduced in 2014 and since then, it has become a favorite among gamers with many even labeling it as a must-have. And now at IFA 2018, Logitech has announced its upgraded version G502 HERO which brings even higher tracking accuracy and makes it better.
The all-new Logitech G502 HERO boasts company's best and finest tracking sensor HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) 16K. This makes it the first wired mouse to feature the sensor although, it would have been good if the company had made the new variant wireless. The new sensor on the mouse is capable of exceeding 400 IPS and offer tracking accuracy up to 16,000 DPI as compared to 12,000 DPI on the previous offering.
While the addition of the HERO sensor is the biggest highlight, Logitech has added a few other improvements as well. It has 11 physical buttons which can be programmed using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). There is also a dedicated DPI adjustment button for avoiding unwanted DPI shifts while gaming. It offers an adjustable weight system and supports LightSync RGB lighting system.
It has an onboard memory which can be used for storing up to five profiles of custom settings. It will allow users to switch between them on the fly as per their need or preference. Logitech is also using an upgraded braid cable which is now slim and more flexible. It even collaborated with Omron to offer an improved mechanical switch with a durability of 50 million clicks.
The Logitech G502 HERO has been priced at $79.99 with sales expected to start in October 2018. It has currently been announced only in Black color.
