I got my eye on g502 proteus

I've been using a cheap 7200dpi amazon tlink mouse and it has seemed fine but i dont really know what a good mouse feels like so i was wondering if anyone uses a cheap mouse and upgraded and if it made a difference?

It all depends on your wallet and how much you can spend. Let me answer your question with a question. Is a cheap 1980s car without ac better than the new technological 2019 cars? Does it matter if you have an antilock break system or not? Does it matter if you have a good transmission vs a cheap transmission? Why am I asking such off topic questions? Because it's common logic that you get what you pay for. I have never bought a pricey item that didn't perform as it said it would. I have also never bought a cheaper alternative better than the more expensive option so there you go.

Glad I could help. When you have the extra cash lying around grab the G502. It'll be worth it.

Yes, I should have gotten straight to the point sorry. I would definitely upgrade to the G502. It will be way better. I had a cheap mouse called the Rokat or something like that. And it had jitter on top of jitter. Plus the build quality was horrible. Going to the G502 made the experience way better.

I spend so much money on mouse and keyboard,(5 different mice, 5 different keyboard) started with cheaper and then bought most expensive mice i could find on a market I can tell you one thing didnt make any difference, my friend plays with cheap 15 worth mice and he plays better.
So my answer is , its all depends on you. If u are @#$% like me even most expensive mice wouldnt help you :D if u are good with mnk cheap @#$% will do the job.

I only buy once, so I upgraded straight from G502 to the G pro wireless, do your research before buying too, its better to spend more to buy the better item once rather than buy an average item only to buy another again because you want to upgrade or it breaks etc and truth be told upgrading from G502 to G pro I didnt notice a game changing difference, feels smoother and much better than having a wire as its much easier to aim with more control imo.
