Logitech G602 Review
This is the Logitech G602. It’s a 2.4 GHz (Gaming grade) wireless mouse by Logitech. In the box, you get the mouse itself, 2 AA batteries, a tiny USB wireless receiver, a USB extension cord if your computer’s USB ports are far away, and some paperwork.
As computers advance, new innovations have arisen, like higher clock speeds, more cores, ray-tracing graphics, and RGB RAM; but despite all these improvements, one thing has remained pretty much the same, and that’s the mouse.
And If you haven’t gone full smartphone and still regularly use a desktop-like I do, you’ll probably want to invest in a decent pointer, and it turns out you don’t have to invest much.
Starting with the design, the G602 is sturdy, with a mostly hard matte black plastic and rubber build, with shiny silver plastic accents. It’s not afraid to be a little bold, with long sharp edges and sweeping curves. It looks well-made, premium, and surprisingly modern.
It’s also very comfortable and feels great in the hand, as long as you’re right-handed, that is (sorry lefties). It’s a pretty long mouse with a big thumb rest. Here it is next to my old M705.

For tracking, the mouse uses a high-accuracy optical Delta Zero sensor with a 2,500 DPI, which can be adjusted all the way down to 250 using the buttons on the top left (or in the settings (more on that later)).
The G602’s standout feature is it is eleven (count ’em!) fully programmable buttons. You’ve got left and right-click, scroll wheel, two buttons on the top left, and six buttons on the lefthand side, where the thumb rests.
All of these buttons are fully customizable and can be programmed in the Logitech G602 Driver is Logitech Gaming Software to perform any function, macro, or key command you want. Usually, the main compromises with wireless mice over their wired counterparts are input latency and battery life, but according to Logitech, those won’t be issues here.
The G602 has a wireless report rate of 500 Hz with a 1 ms response time, not bad for a wireless mouse. And better yet, it’s quoted to have some of the best battery life in the category: 250 hours of non-stop gaming in high-performance mode.
That means if you game on it for four hours a day, every day, this thing would last over two months straight! Still not long enough for you?
Just flip the little switch on the top here.

Those green lights mean you’re now in endurance mode, where your battery should supposedly last a full 9 months! Powering that big battery is, well two of them, they’re regular old alkaline double-A’s. There’s nothing fancy or rechargeable here, but the batteries do come included in the box (very much appreciated) and one can be removed to decrease the weight of this thing slightly from 152 grams to 129 grams.
That is still kinda heavy though, especially if you’re coming from a wired mouse. In everyday use, the mouse is solid, responsive, and accurate, and plays great in games in my experience (although I’m anything short of a pro-gamer). It’s great for mixed workloads of games and productivity, which as you would expect, those extra buttons are great for.
As mentioned earlier, you can program them to perform specific functions and macros per application using the Logitech Gaming Software.
A quick note on that g602 software by the way: be sure to flip this switch from On-Board Memory to Automatic Game Detection, or else macros won’t work.

If you’re looking for a new mouse or you’ve decided to make the switch to wireless, I’ve gotta admit, with a feature pack like this, and a price tag like that, it’s hard not to recommend the Logitech G602.
