Logitech Proteus Core G502 Gaming Mouse review

Rating: 9.0.

The modern gaming mouse market is a diverse one, from ambidextrous, cut back and clean looking mice, to those festooned with buttons, bells whistles to look like something created in a future space race. Today we review one that looks like it was lifted straight from the latest Tron movie. The Logitech G502 Proteus Core ships with a high rated sensor (12,000 dpi) and a ton of buttons and a scroll wheel that seems to never stop spinning once you get it going.

Is this conducive to gaming? Probably, but we wouldn’t be much of a review site if we took the marketing at face value now would we?
