for hardcore PC gamers, customizing peripherals like the mouse to suit your gaming style is not an option and with that in mind, Logitech wants its new G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse (quite a mouthful, eh?) to have the customization aspect covered. starting off with a sensor that offers a huge DPI range of 200 all the way up to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering, and zero pixel rounding – allowing an astounding track movement at 300 inches per second. high-resolution aside, what really makes this gaming mouse stands out is the ability to calibrate the sensor based on the gaming surface that you are using it on, regardless whether you are using it on hard or soft, dark or light mouse pads.
there is also the option of adjusting the weight and center of balance of the mouse by adding up to five 3.6g weights in the mouse to better suit your gaming style. additionally, a 32-bit ARM chip onboard allows you to reassign any command or macro to one of the 11 programmable buttons for a more complete control over your game. other details include individual left and right keys for precise clicks, mechanical micro-switches under every key for enhanced feel, speed, and accuracy and improved dual-mode hyper-fast scroll wheel that now offers enhanced click-on-click precision and lightning fast scrolling for the web. ok, maybe the last bit is not quite applicable in gaming, but it is good to have, nonetheless. the Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse will be available in the U.S. and Europe this month for $79.99.
