Logitech G502 X Gaming mice: Clicky Optical Buttons

Logitech has three latest gaming mice, and the wireless ones eventually have USB-C up front. That’s right, Micro USB’s reign of hysteria continues to drop as Logitech’s new G502 X series gaming mice flourish the company’s famous G502 line.

The latest three mice — G502 X, G502 X Lightspeed, and G502 X Plus — also include hybrid optical-mechanical buttons for more outstanding responsiveness and a more precise 25,600 dpi “Hero 25K” sensor.

They’ll hold a lighter weight and come in black and white. While the mice model the company’s new “Lightforce” hybrid optical-mechanical switches designed to employ the speed of optical technology, they also include the tapping satisfaction of a definitive mouse button.

Logitech claims the optical switch also sports less, so it’ll last longer than a fully mechanical one. The base G502 X is wired and holds the light weight of the bunch at 89 grams.

The G502 X Lightspeed and G502 X Plus include 68 percent more rapid connectivity than the earlier G502 Lightspeed, but only the G502 X Plus comes with the company’s gameplay-reacting Lightsync RGB feature.

The slight redesigns have a reversible DPI shift button for more customizability, and if you’re a gaming beginner like me, you’ll like that you can remove it if you don’t employ it. Logitech also lightened the scroll wheel to earn free spinning easier but can also swap to ratcheted scrolling.

But let’s fetch this straight: the real deal for obtaining this — or upgrading from the earlier model — is the USB-C linkage on the wireless models. They can be played wired in a pinch but can also last on one charge for up to 140 hours for the Lightspeed or up to 120 hours for the Plus (with RGB off). You can also achieve unlimited battery life on both using Logitech’s magical Powerplay wireless charging mouse pad. In addition, the wireless models can share a receiver dongle with the following Logitech G keyboards: G915, G915 TKL, or G715.

You can now preorder the new G502 X line on Logitech’s G website. The wired G502 X is running for $79, the wireless Lightspeed prototype is $139, and both will ship the subsequent month. The Plus will position you back $159 and should begin shipping today.
