Logitech G602 Review – Best Wireless Gaming Mouse

Feb 19

Why the Logitech G602 is our favorite wireless gaming mouse

Design

The G602 is Logitech’s first wireless gaming mouse to feature the Delta Zero™ Sensor Technology. Providing high-accuracy cursor control and extended battery life, in a great looking device.

Delta Zero Sensor

The G602 is considered to be one of the most comfortable gaming mice available, with its ergonomic shape and clever body design. Multi-textured surfaces remain extremely resistant to fingerprints, even after long hours of use.

The black rubber palm rest is ridged, while a rougher texture wraps around the sides of the mouse. This material protrudes out of the left side of the mouse, providing a comfortable thumb rest. Two black click buttons are long and perfectly sloped. With a gray strip of plastic between them, hosting the scroll wheel as well as a switch for toggling performance modes.

The bottom of the mouse has a web-like pattern, with a power switch and 2500 DPI LED sensor in the middle. Just under the sensor is a removable bottom panel that covers up the two included AA batteries.

The mouse can run on a single battery if you want to shed some weight, in exchange for less endurance. The G602 weighs 5.4-ounces (4.6 with one battery). 


Features

ENDURING BATTERY LIFE

Enduring Battery Life

With up to 250 hours of power in Performance mode, that’s as much as eight times the battery life of other wireless gaming mice. All without compromising gaming grade sensor and connection performance. Switching to Endurance mode will boost the estimated battery life to a staggering 1440 hours.

Powered by two standard AA batteries, makes replacing the batteries extremely convenient as opposed to having the mouse sent in for repair if the rechargeable battery wears out. This gives users the option to use regular AA batteries or purchase rechargeable ones. The mouse can also run well on a single battery if you want to shed some weight in exchange for less endurance. The G602 weighs 5.4-ounces (4.6 with one battery). 

WIRELESS GAMING TECHNOLOGY

Wireless Gaming Technoligy

The G602 delivers a lag-free experience through a 2.4 GHz wireless connection with a 2 millisecond report rate. Unlike Logitech Unifying receivers meant to connect multiple devices, the G602 uses the entire bandwidth of a dedicated USB nanoreceiver, for gaming-grade, low-latency performance.  A convenient storage slot in the battery compartment keeps the nanoreceiver safe for transport.

11 PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLS

11 Programmable Buttons

Straight out of the box you can achieve great results with the default configuration, or make your own set-ups with one-button triggers for actions that typically require digging into menus. Put push-to-talk communications in easier reach. Temporarily down-shift DPI for sniping.

Reassign any game command or multi-command macro to any one of 11 programmable buttons with optional Logitech Gaming Software.

IN-GAME SENSITIVITY SWITCHING

Sensitivity Switching

Two easy-to-reach buttons allow quick shifting through up to five distinct DPI settings. Choose from pixel-precise targeting (250 DPI) to high-speed maneuvers (up to 2500 DPI) right when you need them, and while held, the DPI shift command allows you to temporarily use lower sensitivity for tricky FPS sniper shots; instantly return to faster speeds upon release.

PERFORMANCE/ENDURANCE MODES

Endurance

Performance

G602 offers two distinct operating modes. Set the mode switch to Performance and get up to 250 hours of battery life without losing any gaming-grade capabilities. Not gaming? Switch to Endurance mode and extend the battery life even farther, up to an impressive 1440 hours. The active mode is clearly indicated on top of the mouse – blue for Performance, green for Endurance. The LED light also shows you how much battery life the G602 has left, blinking cyan when power finally runs low.


Logitech Gaming Software

Installation is easy!  Plug-in the wireless 2.4 GHz USB receiver and as soon as it switches in, the driver gets installed. Full of useful features, DPI toggle presets, program macro commands for several buttons, and save and assign game profiles.

The best thing is that the software automatically detects when a specific game is booted up and it loads the relevant profile automatically.


Conclusion

The G602 is one of the most affordable feature-packed wireless mice in the market and when it comes to tracking and responsiveness, it performs remarkably.

After playing and working with the Logitech G602 for more than a year, I can clearly say it’s a definite winner! Intuitive design, durability, reliable wireless, extensive features, and astounding battery life makes this a great choice for any application.
