What customers say about "Key Specs"
Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse
  • I like this mouse quite a bit, the buttons are in a perfect spot for my grip and the DPI levels are easy to change.
  • I like the FPS throttle button that raises your DPI insanely high for last minute head shot targeting.
  • A nice flow of buttons including one exclusively for swapping profiles (DPI). Hot swappable DPI is a game changer for first person shooters with a sniping mode.
  • I really like this mouse. Being able to adjust your dpi on it with three different settings to quickly change your dpi is very useful. The overall feel of the mouse is comfortable.
  • My only complaint is the scroll will is a little heavy.
Razer DeathAdder Elite (RZ01-02010100-R3) Multi-Color Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • The optical sensor is very accurate and tracks really well much better then my Lazer in my sensi mouse it says it goes upto 1600 dpi but if I'm honest I doubt I'll go over 3000 dpi
  • This mouse is amazing, let's start with it's 4G optical sensor: It's precise and I love how I can scan my mouse mat and it keeps an image of it, allowing it to work eve better on my mouse mat. Amazing.
  • Looks great, solid built, responsive sensors, nice mat finish. I love the thumb buttons in particular, nice and big, properly placed, feels great to press as with all the buttons. Also the rubber pads near thumb and pinky is a very nice touch.
  • The scroll wheel button also died after 1.5 years and stopped functioning properly (it would only click if you applied an immense amount of pressure).
  • There are no dedicated DPI switching buttons - something I consider unforgivable on any high end gaming mouse.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse
  • Great mouse, might be the best mouse. The ability to adjust the weight of the mouse makes it very nice to use.
  • I love this mouse. The weight is nice.
  • Includes weights for the mouse to set the drag to the level you like.
  • The mouse looks great and with the ability to add the weights I added (all 4 weights) I was able to get a mouse that handled well, felt sturdy.
  • Only downside is the right edge of the mouse needs a little more build out for big hands. It can cause a little cramping over long play sessions with hands my size.
Razer DeathAdder Elite (RZ01-02010100-R3) Multi-Color Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • It really is a joy to hold nice shape and really grippy sides
  • The ergonomics have been well designed and the mouse fits perfectly in my hand.
  • The build quality, weight and coating are all outstanding, the ergonomics impeccable (for those with larger hands) and the sensor world class.
  • The mouse is excellent, ideal weight, great shape and ergonomics, very nice textures and buttons and it's really precise.
  • This mouse is incredibly uncomfortable your hand would have to be the exact size, the way the ergonomics try to control where your palm and fingers sit, not suitable for large hands in my opinion as I have 22 cm long hands and gave me muscle cramp using it in palm grip, sensor is great though.
  • The mouse hurts my hand after using it in intense gaming. I have medium sized hands. And the mouse feals like its designed for people with no pinky finger.

What customers say about "Connection"
Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse
  • The cord is braided so that is a plus but it is really long
  • It has a nice sturdy cord and feels rugged.
  • The braided cord is nice for extra durability
  • The cord frayed and kinked Mouse works well and Gand feel is good
  • Only complaint is the shroud around the USB cord.. Once bent it tends to hold that shape or bend until manually straightened out.
Razer DeathAdder Elite (RZ01-02010100-R3) Multi-Color Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • I really like the shape, the feel, the grip textures on the side and the long braided cord.
  • A nice upgrade for my old deathadder which eventually stopped left clicking, the grips on the side feel nice though i'm unsure how long it will take till they gunk up, the woven cord also feel like an improvement, in all I am satisfied with this and will probably rebuy again in another 5-6 years.
  • Build quality is great. It's a very sturdy feeling mouse, the braided cord on pretty much all razer products have never failed me before, and the rubber grips are very good.
  • The cord is covered in what seems to be a nice nylon sleeve so looks as though its going to be long lasting.
  • I wish the cable was short with an extender, I don't really need so much cable when I am using a laptop. Cable is probably 2m long which I guess would be ideal for desktop machines.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse
  • Software makes it very easy to customize every setting on the mouse
  • It's surfaces have real rubber where it counts, and the plastic components are easy to wipe off. Good riddance to plastic coated over with rubberized paint!
  • Just as described. Love the different options available with 11 programmable buttons.
  • Looks great, fast response, and programmable buttons, everything I need. Response, weight, colors, etc are all programmable.
  • The only thing that would have been great with this mouse is if the scroll wheel had rubber tracks like the G900.
  • Needed the extra buttons for War Thunder gaming, but buttons can't be programmed without downloading software from Logitech's site, which wasn't available more than half the time.
Razer DeathAdder Elite (RZ01-02010100-R3) Multi-Color Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • Razer software has improved alot since I last used it and very easy to customize the mouse
  • The LED light has a high level of brightness, and will add illumination to any setup in a light green Razer brand colour.
  • The software is also easy to figure out and set up multiple profiles for your games.
  • Being a chroma mouse I thought there would be more customization effects lighting is quite basic
  • The Razer Synapse 2.0 software is just bad. It has a number of excellent ideas, but the execution is seriously lacking.
  • Software (although good) can be unstable. Not sure how to get a "continuous on" state for the logo LED (I'm clutching at straws here).
