Gamers love lights, so Logitech shoved some into the G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse


Want to know some stereotypes about PC gamers? They all drink mountain dew, they all live in their mom’s basement, and they all love LED lights. While some gamers are all these things, it is silly to say they all do — it is not factual for all. Well, maybe LED lights. I am fairly confident that all PC gamers love LEDs! Whether it is a desktop PC with a window, mouse, or keyboard, there is a good chance they all glow, or at least one does.

Apparently, Logitech agrees with me. Today, the company announces the G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse. No, it is not an entirely new mouse — it is simply the existing G502 Proteus Core with some LED lighting shoved inside for fun. You know what? It’s friggin’ brilliant.

“The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum features Logitech’s most powerful and accurate optical sensor, the PMW3366, for maximum performance and tracking accuracy and the exclusive Logitech G Delta Zero optical sensor technology that increases reliable targeting. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum also features a huge DPI range of 200 to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering and zero pixel rounding”, says Logitech.

The company further explains, “the textured rubber grips and a convenient button layout ensure great feel and performance from your first encounter with the mouse. Additionally, the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum includes individual left and right buttons that provide a rigid and stable platform, resulting in precise, durable and satisfying clicks. Mechanical micro-switches under each button further enhance feel, speed and accuracy. And, a dual-mode hyper-fast scroll wheel offers enhanced click-to-click precision and lightning-fast scrolling for the Web”.

So there you go, folks. I reached out to Logitech to see if I was overlooking anything; nope, same mouse as the “Core”, just with added RGB customizable lighting. You still get removable weights and a mind-boggling 11 buttons.


Luckily, pricing is reasonable. While $80 may seem like a lot for a mouse, the many features coupled with Logitech’s legendary quality, make this a wise choice for gamers. If you don’t have a need for the lights, you can probably expect discounts on the G502 Proteus Core, so keep your eyes peeled, y’all!
