Logitech G402 Gaming Mouse Description
A gaming mouse the Logitech G402 was designed to maximise on its ability to track as fast as possible, probably one of the fastest mouses in that category. The G402 touts a track speed of over 500 IPS (inches per second) using Logitech's Fusion Engine sensor technology as well as the company's Delta Zero sensor tech for extreme accuracy and a dream for First Person Shooter gamers! Apparently, the problem FPS gamers face is that their mouse can't track as fast as they can move and this is where the Fusion Engine can help by combining state-of-the-art optical sensor technology with an accelerometer and gyroscope. The Fusion Engine provides unmatched tracking speed so the FPS players have a tool that can keep up with their reflexes.
The Logitech G402 has a very similar design to Logitech's legendary MX518 gaming mouse, the G402 is extremely comfortable to hold made with a matte finish that avoids sweating as well while also giving it a neat and sharp look. The resting place for your thumb has been reduced in size in comparison to its predecessor but the G402 design still provides plenty of support. The opposite side where the little finger would rest is also coated in the same rubberized material and helps when moving the mouse in a horizontally. The right and left clickers seem to be constructed from plastic and have a sleek snappy feel.
G402 also supports eight additional programmable buttons that can be configured for anything, whether complex macros or single keystrokes. The cool bit about this is your personal configuration can be saved to onboard memory - one less thing you have to worry about saving when formatting/upgrading. In addition to the standard left and right buttons and a clickable scroll wheel, the mouse also boasts a sniper button (for one-touch DPI switching), DPI up and down buttons (which cycle between four DPI presets), and two programmable thumb buttons. DPI means "Dots Per (linear) Inch" that your mouse can detect. It is the term used to measure mouse sensitivity and responsiveness, a higher DPI equals higher mouse sensitivity which equals higher pointer speed. Fans of FPS will appreciate on-the-fly DPI shifting when changing from fast-paced close-quarter action to slower more precise sniping. Furthermore, using Logitech's included software gamers can add a fifth DPI setting and customize the experience further. This feature essentially means the G402 can go from 4000 DPI to 240 DPI in the blink of an eye, which is extremely versatile and allows a gamer to be a lot more precise.
As you would expect, an ultra-fast 500 IPS gaming mouse is going to give your USB port a workout and the G402 does just that via constant communication. With a 1000MHz or 1-millisecond polling rate the G402 is blistering fast, though Logitech's software does allow the polling rate to be reduced to 500MHz, 250MHz and 125MHz.
For all the functions and speed packed into this piece of tech, the price is very competitive!
