Best mouse you can possibly buy at this price point. It is light weight, comfortable to hold ( both with claw and palm grip) and it just a different experience all together. Bought it for playing fornite, six siege and pubg, and I feel like my game has improved.
Good mouse for gaming. I used this mouse in pubg lite and emulator,cod,bf2,bf3,bf4,etc For sniping in pubg it is good mouse you can easily take down enemy sniper. Advantages:: 1) Good accuracy and easy to aim. 2) 2 side extra buttons are easy configure and easy to click even for medium size hand. 3) Simple Blue Led in G logo and 3 led strip beneath dpi button for showing which dpi setting you are using .Extra features like breathing effect , brightness control. 4) Onboard memory for everything so no hangs or any type glitch during startup or off pc.
Disadvantages: 1) Dpi shift button (sniping button) impossible to click for medium and small hands. It only can be used who have large hands. 2) This mouse only for little bigger than medium and only for large hands.
This is the first expensive gaming mouse i am getting... also because it came it good offer price...
And after using it i am very much impressed . that dp adjustment on the go is superb... i used this for pubg in pc emulator.... the shots are more easier. The sniperbutton is too awesome... which is the main reason you can go for this mouse.. because the sniperbutton is close to your thumb and when pressed while taking headshots... you are going to have accurate headsgots... because its moves the pointer very slow and steady... and when released its automatically switches to your normal dpi... which is excelent....
This is kind of preferences more than anything. 1. The size of mouse is good for people with bigger hands which works for me but might not work for you 2. Ask yourself if you really need those extra 2 buttons(dpi ones which can be binded to anything else), I find it useful for fortnite but not in any other games. If you are happy with just 2 buttons you might go for deathadder instead or g403. 3. Sniperbutton is may conflict your playstyle as people do set different sensitivity for ads or scope anyways so it wont matter. 4. The shoes in bottom are not great, they have started to come of within 6months of usage. 5. Mouse is pretty accurate and buttons have really good clicky feel.
Pros: -Very comfortable and accurate -Zero acceleration if u turn off "Precision" in windows -all buttons customizable -target tracking is very good
Cons: -may not fit every hand
For me, the G102 was small n slippery. This is little thicker and has rubber grip. The sniperbutton also never disturb me as others complained. U dont need more dpi or better sensor unless pro. For every mouse, try it in ur hand to know it
Excellent gaming mouse for heavy gamers. I use it for playing CS:GO and it is very accurate but it is little big for my small hand and I can't use the Sniperbutton effectively most of the time I don't use Sniperbutton.
An absolute amazing mouse. Very precise and the Sniperbutton is very useful. However the cable is not braided n prone to kinking or tearing, so don't buy this mouse if you want to travel often with it. Also there is no RGB , only B . If you don't mind these cons just buy the mouse! It's performance is amazing n all the buttons are customisable via software.
Update: After 1.5 years since I have bought this mouse, I have RMA it 3 times. Every time the problem was with the left click stuttering and middle click which stopped working. Although the experience with the service centre was good but disappointed with the durability of the mouse compared to my past experience with Logitech. Changing my review from 5 to 3 taking this long term experience into consideration.
I built a new gaming rig and decided to replace my 4-year-old still strong Logitech G400s with this one. I sold it along with my old PC. I have been using my new G402 for a couple of months now and I am loving it.
Pros: I use fingertip grip and I just love the shape of the mouse. It feels very ergonomic to me. The G400s had a large butt which I did not like and the G402 has a narrower one which is perfect for me. The mouse should work with palm and claw grips as well. Because I loved the thumb rest in my G400s I was looking for a mouse with it and for some reason, there are very few mice which come with it. Luckily this one makes the list. Although the surface area is less compared to G400s but still provides adequate support. The textured area for the pinky finger is another area which I personally love. Again very few mice have this. The sensors work really great. It is better than G400s but I did not notice any difference. Might be because I play at around 800 DPI. The Logitech software is really nice. You can program the buttons and the DPI settings as well as turn off the LED. All the 8 buttons on the mouse are programmable. The mouse wheel is much much better than the G400s. It has non-braided cables. Now usually this is a con but having used my G400s and having no problems with the cable over 4 years of usage, I can safely say that I won't have any problems with my G402 as well. Braided cables on the other hand, may require a Bungee to prevent fraying.
Cons: The left mouse button sometimes sounds squeaky. I had to replace one which squeaked on every click. The mouse is quite heavy. The G400s weighs 137g while G402 weighs 144g. It would have been perfect for me if it weighed 87g like the G403 Prodigy. The DPI up and down buttons are awkwardly placed. It was very easy for me to make accidental clicks. I disabled them through the software. But can be useful for binding it to something else in-game. The sniperbutton in the front is unreachable with a fingertip grip. But no need since I did not agree with the concept itself. Take CSGO for example, it would be a competitive disadvantage to press an extra button while flicking the mouse when using an AWP. However, it can be programmed for some other use so no biggy. When you click the button the LED effects look cool though. The Back and Forward are thinner than the G400s which I don't like although they do get the job done on par. It has Blue LED! I have a G413 Keyboard which has a red LED. RGB would have fixed this but at least keep it consistent Logitech.
Most of the things I did not like come out of preference and so overall it is a great mouse. Highly recommended.

Everyone else has mentioned how good the mouse is, and its true for the most part. However, very few seem to have talked about something that is quite a big issue in reality. THE CABLE. Yes, its strong and sturdy, but it retains memory like a darn elephant. It comes in the way of twitchy games at times- and I play quite a bit of Counter Strike. The problem is exacerbated if you travel a lot- in the sense, DON'T take this mouse with you. More specifically, don't pack it up by twirling the cable around the mouse's body, since it will take ages to get back to something that resembles the original state. It has troubled me at the worst of times during competitive matches in CSGO. Get the Logitech G303 which has the braided cable or if you want more buttons, the expensive G502. I haven't used any mice with these new cables, but I'm pretty sure that those mice's cables are miles better than this one's. Maybe you could even wait for a potential G403 with a braided cable.
Here's a general review:
+ Perfect weight for my hands. + The mouse is rather large for my smallish fingers, but is still comfortable as hell. I use a palm/claw hybrid grip. + The thumb buttons are so well located, I can't imagine going back to a mouse that doesn't have these. + Teeny lift off distance. This is of much importance to me. + Great rubbery finish on the top faces. No sweating issues and you won't lose grip. + The scroll wheel is such a joy to use. The stops are tactile but smooth at the same time - I wonder what the mechanism is like. + Aesthetically appealing is an understatement. It's been a couple of months since I purchased this, and I still can't help myself stop and soak in the design every now and then. Makes me go hrnngh. + Good cable length. + Strong and tight fitting USB jack.
- The cable - Clicking the wheel is super loud. It's annoying. - Oh yeah, the cable - The sniperbutton is absolutely useless for me. People with long fingers, research if its comfortable having the switch under your thumb all the time. I can't reach it comfortably so its alright, but still dead weight. The concept itself is rather pointless too imho. - Did I mention the cable?
Make sure you have a mouse pad since the mouse guards though well designed, capture an obscene amount of dust. This is not really a complaint though.
Till now (2 months in) the best mouse I have EVER used. I used to have the g400s. It went kaput , sent it back, got a refund. This mouse is the replacement, I am into hardcore gaming and keep the mouse at high DPI, 3500 or so, its very very accurate. this is the best one yet. but beware, with oily indian hands, the mouse coating gets stained over time.
goot sniperbutton for games, on the fly dpi adjustment
BIGGEST Advantage, unlike moron third party mouse, this is proper Logitech mouse, the 5 buttons ALL detect in game, you can set then for grenades or what ever else. in the overpriced china mouse those buttons can be set with only the software, you cant set them ingame !
I have been using this mouse for about 5-6 months now and it has worked fine. It works really good in game when you are playing FPS games like CS:GO (I play that game a lot)...Oh those sniper shots that you can make!! :D
However, I have faced few problems it in:
1) One day the left-click button was ghost-clicking (i.e. on clicking once it was double-clicking) It was not a software fault but was a hardware fault. To resolve it I blew air through my mouth in the front gap below the left-click and then clicked hard on it multiple times (like really hard with one finger....TAK TAK TAK TAK TAK) :P
2) Similar thing happened with the middle-click button one day (the middle-click was not getting register with a normal pressure click) I had to press hard on the middle click to work. I did the same thing as above to resolve the issue...lol
3) The software is really great! You can customize program wise buttons (i.e. you can program each of the 8 buttons on the mouse to do whatever you want it to) for example you wan the DPI button to do refresh...so just go and re-program it to press the keyboard F5 button AND THAT TOO CAN BE ASSIGNED TO DO ONLY ON A PROGRAM YOU WANT OR BY DEFAULT IN EVERY PROGRAM.
The DPI and the Fusion engine is just superb! If you are a gamer then this will help you achieve great success in making those kills haha! :D
