Last week, I requested you what’s your favourite gaming mouse? Hundreds of mice got here squeaking at our doorways, however solely 5 have been sturdy sufficient to interrupt into our voting enviornment. All of them hailed from the ranks of Razer and Logitech, and now, after a weekend of duking it out inside our specifically ready battle royale cage, one has emerged victorious. That mouse is the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectum!
While I haven’t examined the G502 Proteus Spectrum myself, I have examined the most recent model of Logitech’s successful mouse, the G502 Hero – which I preferred very a lot! The predominant distinction between the 2 fashions is the kind of sensor they arrive with. Whereas the G502 Hero has a extra delicate 16,000 DPI sensor, the Proteus Spectrum’s one maxes out at 12,000 DPI. The G502 Hero additionally has longer-lasting left and proper clicker switches, as these are rated for 50 million lifetime clicks versus simply 20 million on the Proteus. Otherwise, they’re just about precisely the identical mouse, which is simply as nicely, as a result of I got here to the conclusion that it was the Proteus Spectrum that was the actual gaming mouse hero in my assessment, not its newer, shinier successor.
The G502 Proteus Spectrum gained by fairly a snug margin, too, seeing off competitors from Razer’s Deathadder and Naga Trinity, in addition to Logitech’s G305 and MX518 – as you may see from our outcomes desk beneath:
Indeed, the G502 Proteus Spectrum acquired 36% of the general vote, whereas its closest rival, the Razer Deathadder, acquired simply 27% of the vote. The Logitech MX518 was the third hottest mouse, with 16% of the vote, and narrowly beat Logitech’s newer, entry-level mouse, the G305, which managed 13% of the vote. The Razer Naga Trinity, in the meantime, got here in final with 8% of the vote.
To rejoice the G502 Proteus Spectrum being topped the RPS Readers’ Favourite Gaming Mouse 2019, I’ll be including a brand new entry in my very own best gaming mouse rankings for it, so be careful for that later this week.
Plus, because it’s Black Friday week, the G502 can be on sale proper now – albeit in its newer Hero type fairly than the Proteus Spectrum model. Still, with Best Buy providing the black and white mannequin for simply $35 (and the all-black mannequin for $50) at time of writing, that’s a reasonably respectable value for a gaming mouse of this calibre (and to remain updated with all of our Black Friday offers, be sure you bookmark our Best Black Friday mouse and gaming keyboard deals hub for all the most recent costs in your favorite peripherals).
