G502 vs G403
« on: 08:39 PM - 05/15/17 »
I'm wanting to get a new mouse, G502/G403 is what i've narrowed my decision down to. They both have the same sensor, same maximum DPI and they are both at a local store.The G403 is $10 less than the G502 but the G502 has more customisable buttons. Leaning more towards the G403 because I don't really use the customisable buttons on my current mouse that much so it feels sort of pointless. What with you guys go with?

Tbh i spent a few hours watching rwview videos on utube but i just ordered my G502 this morning i rather have a wired more so it wouldnt die compared to the g403. But best bet is to put sone time into research. Good luck (cough cough - G502)?

G502's bigger and a bit heavier. The extra buttons come in handy for Sony Navigator controller users, which is part of why it's popular for Ximmers.

If you use a keyboard, the 403 has more than enough buttons.

In the end, it comes down to a decision about comfort - which one feels better in the hand?

There is a wired G403, it's not exclusively wireless. -Thanks for the input as well.

I just got a G403. Same sensor as the G502, wired version. It has a more standard shape and it's lighter. I wouldn't say the G502 is better because it's not. Do you like heavy mice? Do you need extra buttons? Get the G502. Otherwise go for a G403, it's a pretty good mouse.
The G502 isn't any better, it all comes to preferences in this case.
