Founded in 1981, Swiss technology giant Logitech has always pushed the envelope when it comes to performance and quality with its products. Nowadays they make a variety of computer peripherals, with their range including mice, keyboards, headsets, webcams and speakers.
In 2008 Logitech shipped its one billionth mouse and since then their portfolio has only grown, so it stands to reason that few should be more qualified to come up with a winning mouse design. Having recently launched their G series of peripherals, with a focus on the gaming enthusiast and operating under the slogan ‘Science Wins’, Logitech certainly seem to be making plenty of noise about their expertise.
The subject of today’s review is the G402 Hyperion Fury, this latest offering in the G series seems to take the technology to the next level, refining the Fusion Engine we saw in the G502 and turning it up to eleven with the G402 claiming to be the fastest mouse in the world thanks to its stable tracking speed of over 400 inches per second. I unfortunately don’t have a bionic arm to confirm that one with however, so we will have to do this the old fashioned way; lets start off by seeing what Logitech have to say about the G402:
Fusion Engine High Speed Tracking
Hyperion Fury combines an optical sensor featuring Logitech Delta Zero technology with our exclusive Fusion Engine™ hybrid sensor to enable tracking speeds in excess of 500 IPS.
8 Programmable Buttons
Customize your mouse with 8 programmable buttons. Whether you want to toss a grenade or quickly access your inventory, it’s at your fingertips. Optional Logitech Gaming Software makes set up easy.
On-The-Fly DPI Switching
Switch through four DPI settings in an instant. Snipe a foe across the map (250 DPI) before fleeing in the blink of an eye (4000 DPI). With on-the-fly DPI switching, you have the flexibility to react to the chaos of battle with precision.
32 Bit ARM Processor
Hyperion Fury on-board ARM processor powers the Fusion Engine for incredible tracking speeds while allowing you to save and play back your favorite macros. With Logitech Gaming Software, craft and assign macros that can be accessed from Hyperion Fury with ease.
1MS Report Rate
With a 1 millisecond report rate, you can be confident that your movement will be communicated via USB at fast speeds without troublesome lag.
An update to the classic G400s shape to enhance function and comfort. A combination of lightweight materials and rubber grips will help to ensure that your gaming sessions last as long as possible.
High Speed Clicking
Distinct left and right buttons offer extreme responsiveness. With high-speed clicking, you can push your skills even further while enjoying the edge in intense firefights. Faster, more comfortable clicking makes all the difference with Hyperion Fury.
