Logitech G502 X Plus review: An icon revamped


(Pocket-lint) – The Logitech G502 Lightspeed is a bit of a legend in the gaming mouse arena. A tried-and-trusted classic with a great design, plenty of flexibility and a winning feature format that others have tried to emulate.  

Now Logitech has taken that icon and improved upon it with three mice – the wired G502 X, the wireless G502 X Lightspeed and the G502 X Plus. The latter of these three is the top of the range and one that the company claims to include a range of “breakthrough innovations” to give you the best gaming experience possible. 

How does the Logitech G502 X Plus hold up in a world of superlight and gamer-pleasing mice from the competition though? We’ve been playing with it to find out.

Our quick take

The G502 X Plus is a welcome upgrade to a tried-and-trusted legend. It’s the little things that really make this mouse great, including the addition of hybrid optical switches, eye-catching RGB, the swappable side button and more. It’s great looking, feels good in the hand and is, most importantly, a great gaming gadget. Once again, Logitech has nailed it with its gaming mouse design.

A legend reinvented

  • Lightforce hybrid optical-mechanical switches
  • Hero 25K sensor, 40G2 max acceleration, 400IPS max speed
  • 13 programmable buttons 
  • 5 on-board memory profiles 

The Logitech G502 X Plus is available in either white or black and looks utterly stylish thanks to its Lightsync RGB lighting zones. But it’s immediately recognisable as being a G502.

That classic and iconic ergonomic shape is still there with the sloped side grip, the pointy and angry-looking frame and multiple side buttons. Some things are the same and some have changed. There are no swappable weights included with the G502 X Plus, so it’s not weight-adjustable like the original model. Instead, Logitech has cut the weight down to 106 grams and made some under-the-hood enhancements.

We immediately noticed this when we first picked the mouse up and started playing with it, as it feels quite a bit lighter and perhaps a bit cheaper in the hand because of it. That doesn’t mean it’s not a high-quality mouse though, as the G502 X Plus certainly has a lot going for it.

The free-spinning mouse wheel design is still there for a start. It’s been tweaked to make it lighter and more stable, with precise ratchet modes that provide quite a lot of audible and tactile feedback when you scroll. Then you can click the button behind the wheel to put it into the smooth hyper-fast scroll mode where it’ll just spin and spin. 

This can be used for clever in-game commands and macros or just insanely fast scrolls on long webpages
