As the successor to the G502 Spectrum, the G502 HERO maintains an identical appearance and exterior design except for a different sensor. The sensor powering this mouse is the HERO optical sensor, which has been built from the ground up by Logitech. It is not based off of the popular 3360 optical sensor, but it does have a DPI range from 100 -16,000. The HERO sensor is also rated as the most accurate gaming sensor from Logitech thanks to its zero smoothing/acceleration/filtering design. Other features of the mouse include a redesigned company logo and braided cable, RGB illumination, a tunable weight system, and the Logitech G Hub gaming software. Benchmark Reviews will test the G502 HERO to see how well it performs against the competition.
