I just started looking for a gaming mouse today. What is the normal price of this, $79? I am debating between this and the SteelSeries Rival 300. I have large hands and would like a simple looking mouse.

One of the best gaming mouse around is on sale today for an all time low of $60 at Amazon, it has an adjustable on the fly DPI range of 200-12,000. It also features 5 movable amd removable weights, 11 customizable buttons and Logitech dual mode scroll, the braided cable is also a nice touch.

$60 is a common "sale" price. These have been on sale for $40 during the holidays.

Yes, regular price is $80. I have the 1st gen version of this mouse w/o the RGB and it's been a fantastic mouse for the 2 years that I've had it so far. I have medium/large-ish hands and this mouse fits perfectly for my palm-grip use. It works perfectly fine for either palm-grip or claw-grip in my opinion. I paid $60 for mine on sale when I got it.

My brother has the SteelSeries Rival 300 mouse, I'm personally not a fan of the design/shape and prefer the right-handed ergonomics of the G502 over it. It's just a personal preference.

Picked the mouse up yesterday. I've had many mice and have kind of a meh opinion that they're all the same except you just need to find one that fits the shape of your hand. But this one does feel like it has a superior build quality even compared to previous Logitech flagship mice like MX Performance and MX1000. The buttons have a very positive clicking action and great placement. The size is slightly smaller than MX500 and G602 that suit big hands, but I think it's still usable for big hands. It's just that the ring finger falls more to the side than sitting up on top. Even the customization software is usable unlike the junk Harmony remote software and Setpoint.

You can try them both at the display in store. I did and the Logitech feels much superior.

Don't know if that "all time low" is being justified by the fact that this is the Proteus Spectrum, not Proteus Core. Since the Spectrum came out this year, and wasn't included in any of the year-end ~$40 G502 sales, OP may be technically right.

Now if someone can tell me once and for all if the danged thing is optical or laser, that's what I want to know. Logitech's site says Optical Sensor, then you open up the box and it says "Warning: Class 2 Laser Product"... WHAT IS TRUTH?? ( @ _ @ ; )

Thanks. I went to Best Buy and tried out my three contenders DeathAdder Chroma, G502, and Rival 300. My hand measures 21 cm. Both the Chroma and Rival were larger and fit my hand better. But the G502 felt the best, even though its smaller, it felt nice. Its also not as aggressive looking in person as the pictures make it seem. The other two are definitely less 'gamer' looking, but the G502 overall felt the best. Ill research a bit more (longevity of the Rival seems like an issue) but ill likely pick up the G502 tomorrow.

Laser is a type of optical sensor as well. To be specific, the G502 uses an IR LED optical sensor that is invisible to the human eye. It is still dangerous to look directly at the sensor, hence the warning.

Knew about IR Diodes, but had no idea that laser diodes were a thing, that is freaking awesome! Thank you so much for finally setting that straight for me (*>_<*)?
