See specifications

Introduced in August 2018, the Logitech G502 Hero mouse is none other than an updated G502 Proteus Spectrum with a new Hero 16K optical sensor. A mouse which therefore retains its strengths and weaknesses by modernizing very slightly.

Positive points

Excellent optical sensor.


Very comfortable grip.

Disengageable and horizontal scroll wheel.

Possibility to adjust the weight.

Bad points

Identical to the previous model, only the sensor changes.

Always a little heavy therefore, unlike the wireless version G502 Lightspeed.

Risks of jitter instability in free scrolling mode on certain copies.

Our review


The G502 Hero being finally identical to the G502 Proteus Spectrum except for the sensor, we invite you to consult the complete test of the latter to discover the qualities and defects of this mouse. This new version therefore adopts the Hero 16K, an optical sensor that we have already been able to test in several models, notably the G502 Lightspeed, wireless version of the G502.



121 g without taking into account the cable, the possibility of adding up to 5 small masses of 3.6 g each, the G502 Hero remains fairly heavy for a 2018 mouse, especially when compared to a G502 Lightspeed which, despite adding a battery for wireless operation manages to weigh 7 g less than this G502 Hero. In absolute terms, this remains reasonable, however, given the number of buttons on the mouse and its disengageable metal wheel.



Able to operate at speeds of 10.16 m / s (7.6 m / s for the PMW3366 of the G502 Proteus Spectrum) and supporting accelerations up to 40g, the Hero 16K sensor that drives this G502 Hero ensures high performance. We invite you to discover all the good that we think of it in the complete test of the G502 Lightspeed, which also uses this sensor.



Without changing the design, the G502 Hero allows Logitech to continue to offer its flagship mouse in a fairly accessible wired version. Although it unfortunately does not benefit from the thinning effected on the G502 Lightspeed when switching to wireless technology, it remains this excellent versatile gaming mouse that offers a comfortable grip, many buttons and high-level performance. This is even more the case with the Hero 16K sensor which distinguishes this G502 Hero from previous versions.
