"The original G502 is a fan favorite, but we've developed some incredible sensor technology since it first launched, adding HERO 16K to G502 makes it even more awesome, and we think people are going to love it."

Ujesh Desai - Vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming.

The ultimate sensor for speed, accuracy, and responsiveness, the Logitech G502 HERO boasts Logitech G's industry-leading HERO 16K sensor, the highest performing and most efficient gaming sensor Logitech has ever made. Featuring an all-new lens and they have updated the tracking algorithm to deliver more precision for tracking and with none of the dreaded acceleration, smoothing or filtering over the entire DPI range, Logitech G's HERO 16K sensor is capable of exceeding 400 IPS and delivering 16,000 DPI tracking with pixel-precise accuracy.

Each aspect of the Logitech G502 HERO was built to adjust to different styles of gameplay. The mouse has 11 buttons, programmable through Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), to customize commands and macros, adjustable weight system with five 3.6g weights and a dual-mode hyper scroll. Lighting can be personalized across approximately 16.8 million colors using Logitech G's LIGHTSYNC RGB technology. Onboard memory stores up to five profiles, for LAN users or those who switch between multiple systems.

While retaining the design so many users enjoyed (I myself wasn't a huge fan, though many of my friends swear by theirs including our own Keith May) and updating the hardware while adding a rubber side button grip as well as a new braided cable for comfort and longevity. The mouse also has a new switch which has been developed in partnership with Omron and promises a 50 million click durability. Finally they have added adjustable weights which can be used to change the center of balance of the mouse.
