What customers say about "Key Specs"
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • Buttons feel solid, ambidextrous without sacrificing comfort in either hand, tracking is amazing.
  • Ambidextrous buttons and it's fully modular, whether you're right handed/left-handed
  • Awesome sensor, wicked response time and cable free!
  • It has the best sensor currently made for mice, and an entirely new and excellent switch design for the left and right mouse button.
  • I'm a hybrid grip style between claw and palm. The buttons on the left seemed too far forward for me particularly but this is purely based on my hand alone, not yours.
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 (Or buttons or whatever)
  • 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
  • I am forced to play games with an extremely high DPI because no matter what I do the Logitech Gaming Software does not detect mouse, which means I cannot change DPI settings. Windows says the mouse has an unsigned driver. And from doing research, a lot of people are having the same problem.
  • After a few months of using it, it started breaking. The right click is sticking, and sometimes not being recognized and the dpi change button is sunk in. its a great mouse that broke wayy to quickly for me to praise.
  • My only complaint is the scroll will is a little heavy.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • The ambidextrous shape and feel of the mouse is perfect for my hands. Although the back end comes up a little further than I like, doesn't take long to get adjusted to. Battery lasts me a good bit for as much as I game.
  • Surprisingly lightweight, with great static-moving friction differential that's even better than advertised with a quality gaming mouse mat.
  • Very light weight for a wireless mouse. (about 107g)
  • Not really a con, but the mouse feels slimmer and longer than some other mouse, like even the G502. need sometime to get used to it.
  • I never got used to the "feel" of this mouse, It never disappears in your hand. It is a heavy mouse, too, so you know it is there.
  • While the technical specs. have be impressive, the ergonomics of this device is bottom of the barrel. Caveat emptor if you have larger hands.
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 (and changeable to taste)
  • 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.

What customers say about "Connection"
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • Sturdy cable and connector, looks like it'll be quite durable
  • Wireless is on par if not better than the wire connection.( I prefer wireless over wired in games and productivity 9 times out of 10)
  • Connection and software setup is pretty simple-at least coming from the MX 700s (which is detected and used by the software as well).
  • It operates wirelessly with a very fast polling rate and has tested out again and again to have virtually zero lag regardless of the environment.
  • Even wireless this mouse is said to have less latency than wired competitors
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. Leads to it looking very messy coming out of the laptop bag sometimes.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • The RGB is actually useful, as I currently use it to display different colours for each profile. Blue for General / Browsing, Green for Production, Red for Gaming
  • Amazing DPI Light and Logo RGB effects
  • Unlike other mice that have sensativity adjustments on the mouse these are hard to accidentally hit
  • Awesome battery life but can still be used while plugged in and charging.
  • Battery life is a blatant lie on the box. If you disable the onboard lighting the mouse onboard lights turn on and stay on during sleep/standby or off situations running the battery down uselessly.
  • Logitech Gaming Software is bloated, heavy, and can even cause Internet connectivity issues (!!) with more fragile LAN connections in Windows Vista/7 setups, which has been a known issue for years. Thankfully, not necessary for this mouse to work a full performance.
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.
  • I already have my desktop running RGB on the motherboard, memory, case, keyboard and now a mouse. 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 I tried
