The Logitech G602 is a decent mouse overall that has great MMO gaming performance. It has a good build quality, but it's not very portable as it's a little bulky. The mouse's ergonomics are good and most people won't have any issues with their hand size unless they have small hands, in which case only the palm grip is okay. This mouse is wireless but offers no charging option, and its latency is disappointing for competitive gamers. On the upside, it has an excellent overall performance and is highly customizable with a large number of buttons. Finally, the accompanying software works flawlessly both on Windows and on macOS.
Note 12/20/2019: We are currently unable to retest the G602 for Test Bench 0.8.1, as we lost the receiver. If we find it, we'll retest them and update them to the latest test methodology.
