The G402 Hyperion Fury is Logitech’s latest entry into the world of gaming mice. Its looks are reminiscent of the G502 Proteus Core mouse which was reviewed a few months back HERE. I guess you can consider the G402 a lightweight version of the G502 but don’t count this little guy out. It does have less features compared to its older brother but as a no nonsense hardcore gaming mouse, the Hyperion Fury can dish it out.
Here are some of the basic specs for the G402 Hyperion Fury:
- 8 Programmable buttons
- On-the-fly DPI switching
- 32-Bit ARM processor
- 1MS Report Rate
- Ergonomic Design
- DPI shift button
- Up to 4000 DPI Resolution
- Rated for 20 Million Clicks
As I’ve already mentioned, the G402 can be viewed as a scaled back version of the G502. There are no customizable weights. The fancy blue accents are absent. The mouse wheel is rubberized plastic and it has no side scrolling options. In addition, the cord is not braided. Although some of the premium features are missing, the mouse still feels solid and well-constructed. The mouse is ergonomically designed. Since the shell is basically the G502, it’s very comfortable to hold in a variety of different grips. It is a bit longer than what some claw-grip gamers may be accustomed to but it manages to still be comfortable during those marathon gaming sessions. Unfortunately, in order to be truly ergonomic, Logitech opted to sculpt the G402 for only the right hand.
Tracking is excellent and precise. Although I usually do not go over around 3400 DPI, the G402 tops off at 4000 DPI. With the use of Logitech’s Gaming Software, all 8 buttons on the mouse can be programmed to do whatever you’d like including macros. Although I won’t be giving up my G502 for its younger brethren, the G402 is a great gaming mouse that comes with little flash aside from the pulsing G logo, solid features that gamers look for, and customizability that both MMO and FPS crowds can put to use.
The G402 Hyperion Fury can be found for about $60 at your favorite brick & mortar or online retailer website. It comes in at $20 under the G502’s MSRP but with the holidays just right around the corner, I’d find it hard to not recommend this mouse to any gamer friend on a budget.
