Logitech Announces G502 Proteus Spectrum

The G502 Proteus Core was already one of the Logitech’s flagship gaming mice with precision surface tuning and customizable weight balance, but this newest model will feature RGB lighting with up to 16.8 million color and brightness options.

In the last few years, Logitech has shifted from a consumer level focus to deliver some very high-quality gaming peripherals. They started out with updated mice, headsets, keyboards, and even created custom software for profiles, keybinds, and surround sound options.

Now that the hardware elements are solid, there’s been a further emphasis on the aesthetics of Logitech’s gaming products. In addition to being able to adjust the G502 Proteus Spectrum with 16.8 million colors it can be set to breathing, color cycling and other patterns.

“The G502 Proteus Spectrum has an amazing sensor, and now it’s got customizable lighting as well,” vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech Ujesh Desai said. “You can also sync it with your other RGB-enabled Logitech G gaming gear to create some really cool effects.”

The G502 Proteus Spectrum still has the powerful PMW3366 optical sensor, which makes use of the Logitech G Delta Zero tracking technology and has a massive DPI range of 200 to 12,000.

The G502 Proteus Spectrum will be available in January 2016 for $79.99 and €89.

Our Thoughts:

There’s nothing wrong with the addition of RBG lighting, but there’s not much need to upgrade from the original Proteus Core unless custom lighting is high on your priority list. That being said, the G502 is a great mouse for gaming whether it’s shooters or MOBAs.
