Title: G502 lightspeed users question
Post by: Loki on 09:37 AM - 03/24/21
What settings have you tried that work the best? I currently have my dpi set to 25600 and report rate set to 1000. I plan to use it with the Xbox Series X only. I haven't had time to test it yet. I am currently moving and everything is packed up. Should I turn the profile switch on for my mouse to use my saved settings that I saved as a profile? Last question. Do you notice any lag difference when using wireless vs wired?


Thank you in advance.

I have 2 lightspeed mice (g502 and G Pro Superlight). Its all personal preference but I have found you don't really need to go any higher than 12k DPI to easily break through the AA bubble. In terms of report rate/polling, 1000hz works fairly well with lightspeed mice but I actually prefer to use 500hz as it mitigates some of my shaky unsteady hands. Edit your profiles on G-Hub then turn the mouse's onboard memory on making sure you have the correct profiles assigned to what you want to use on the Xim. I don't notice any lag using the mice in wireless mode. Have a look on rtings reviews, they will show you how good these mice are in terms of lag. Just in terms of syncs which you didn't mention, I used to play with sync off but then switched to common sync when I had a 60hz monitor, then default sync when I moved to a 120hz monitor which feels great at 12k dpi and 500hz polling. No issues breaking into targets bubbles and breaking back out again. I hope this helps!

Thank you. This was good information. I am tweaking my config now.
