The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is a great wired gaming mouse designed for FPS games. It's incredibly well-built, with an ergonomic shape that's better suited for a right-handed palm or claw grip. It has a great number of programmable buttons, including a dedicated sniper button on the side. It delivers exceptional performance with its low click latency and high polling rate for a responsive and smooth gaming experience. Unfortunately, it's on the heavier side, and the rubber-coated cable is a bit stiff. Also, the scroll wheel is pretty basic and doesn't allow for L/R tilt input or infinite scrolling.

Our Verdict

7.5 Office/Multimedia

The Logitech G402 is decent for office use. It's an incredibly well-built mouse, and it's comfortable to use for long periods. It has a lot of programmable buttons that you can customize through G HUB, which is available for both Windows and macOS. The scroll wheel is mediocre, as it doesn't have L/R tilt input and can't be unlocked for infinite scrolling.

Pros
  • Good ergonomics.
  • Excellent build quality.
  • Fully compatible with Windows and macOS.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Mediocre scroll wheel.
8.3 Video Games (FPS)

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is great for FPS games. It's a well-built mouse that's comfortable to use for long hours. It has low click latency, a high polling rate, and allows you to adjust the CPI in small increments. There are buttons for on-the-fly CPI switching, as well as a dedicated sniper button. Unfortunately, it's on the heavy side, and there's no weight optimization.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • High polling rate.
  • Good ergonomics.
  • Excellent build quality.
Cons
  • On the heavy side.
  • Slightly stiff cable.
8.1 Video Games (MMO)

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is excellent for MMO games. It has an excellent build quality, and it's comfortable to use for extended periods, which is great for those long raids. It has many programmable buttons, but it might not be enough for some MMO players.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • High polling rate.
  • Good ergonomics.
  • Excellent build quality.
Cons
  • Might not have enough buttons for some MMO players.
7.4 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is decent for ultra-light gaming. It has low click latency and a high polling rate, making your gaming experience feel smooth and responsive. Sadly, it's a bit heavy, and the cable is a little stiff.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • High polling rate.
  • Excellent build quality.
Cons
  • On the heavy side.
  • Slightly stiff cable.
5.3 Travel

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is sub-par for portable use. It's a wired-only mouse, and it's a little bulky, so it takes up a fair amount of bag space. On the upside, it has an excellent build quality and should survive a few tumbles. It has software support for both Windows and macOS, and there's onboard memory to store profiles, so you can access your custom settings even if G HUB isn't installed on your computer.

Pros
  • Good ergonomics.
  • Excellent build quality.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Slightly bulky.
  • 7.5 Office/Multimedia
  • 8.3 Video Games (FPS)
  • 8.1 Video Games (MMO)

Lighting Color Blue

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury has a very gamer-oriented design. It has a matte black finish on top with some glossy accents, and the latex-coated sides have the same matte finish. It has two side buttons and a dedicated sniper button. The two buttons located next to the left click are CPI switching buttons, and the LED lights located below them indicate the active CPI setting. The logo lights up, but it's limited to a single blue color.

Despite being designed for FPS games, this mouse is on the heavy side. Unfortunately, there's no weight optimization. If you want a lighter mouse, check out the Logitech G403 HERO.

Build Quality

The build quality is excellent. It's a mix of matte and glossy plastic, and it feels solid, with no signs of rattling or squeaking. The sides and the scroll wheel have a latex coating that feels very grippy, allowing you to have greater control. The PTFE feet are of good quality and allow the mouse to glide smoothly. Lastly, the buttons are clicky and satisfying.

The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury has many buttons, all of which are programmable. The two buttons located next to the left click are the default buttons for on-the-fly CPI switching, but they're programmable if you want to use them for other functions. The button located below the three LED lights is the sniper button, which lets you activate a custom low CPI setting for as long as you hold the button down, so you don't have to change the CPI setting just to perform a few precision shots. There isn't a default button for profile switching; however, you can always remap one of the buttons.

Logitech's G HUB software is superb. It has a clean and easy to use interface. It allows you to adjust the mouse's performance settings, remap buttons, and create profiles. It does allow you to customize the LED lighting, but since it's limited to a single color, you can only apply a 'breathing' lighting effect. Profiles are saved per application, and there's onboard memory to store profiles, so you can access your custom settings when playing on a computer that doesn't have G HUB installed.
