Logitech G402 Gaming Mouse Review
However dissatisfied, we were about the amount of gaming hardware that named after the classic Greek character. We must admit that we were very impressed with the latest Logitech mouse.
Marketed as ‘the fastest gaming mouse in the world’ and to be fair, Logitech is right. It’s not traded on a crazy-high DPI typesetting. It’s is a bigger sibling, the G502 Proteus Core, can manage. But can track your movements, but you quickly throw your mouse on the desktop.
The G502 can reach a maximum DPI of around 12,000, while the G402 seems to lag with a relaxed 4,000 DPI. That doesn’t sound fast, but sensitivity isn’t the same as tracking speed.
Hyperion Fury can track movements of up to about 500 inches per second (IPS), while the fastest you usually find in mice with high specifications such as G502 is something in the 300ips region.
How is voodoo like that? Well, it’s all thanks to the Fusion Engine hybrid sensor that Logitech has placed at the heart of the G402. Normal gaming mice use optical sensors to track their movements on certain surfaces. But if you make a sudden movement, the sensor can lose track of where it is. And you lose accuracy and consistency in the game.
The way Logitech has overcome this is by adding an accelerometer and gyroscope to the Fusion Engine. All of which are connected to the 32-bit ARM core. It’s means even if the optical laser sensor loses its bearings. The accelerometer and gyroscope can predict, impressively, where the mouse moves.
All of this means that the G402 offers one of the most accurate and consistent FPS gaming experiences you will find.
Besides that, what we don’t sell in bulk is the more cosmetic features of the G402. Thin and long grips will be okay if you share the G502 thumb rest, which allows you to play claw grips more comfortable. We also want to see the scroll wheel directed towards Its brother.
Inevitably when we talk about the Logitech mouse, we will shout at the beautiful G9 and beg them to see if they can incorporate the Fusion Engine into their old chassis.
But aside from personal issues, the G402 is an amazing FPS gaming mouse. That will consistently track every fast move up to, and possibly including, throwing it across the room in a gaming match.
The Bad > No weights system, Doesn’t look very premium
The Good > Very comfortable to use, Lightweight, Great button positioning and response, Easy DPI switching
Conclusion > The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury absolutely delivers where it matters. It’s comfortable to use and it performs superbly.
