"By adding RGB customizable lighting the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, the world’s best selling gaming mouse just got even better. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum still retains the world’s best DPI sensor, advanced surface and weight tuning, but now gives you even more features to elevate your game and style."

Disappointed that they didn't release a lighter better shape with the sensor and RGB than isn't as small/weird as the G303 or fix the mouse wheel! With something similar to the MX Master, the metal wheel is just too slippery.

This seems like a minimum effort update which they could have done months ago:

1) Replace blue plastic with black. check!
2) Replace blue LEDs with RGB LEDs & circuit (copy and paste from G303). check!

You're right on sir. i do wish they had updated the g303 with a better scroll wheel like the one you mentioned. or the one from the GOAT g9x.

If there is one thing that should have been changed is the stupid wheel.

You shouldn't expect much from LogiCrap, going to avoid them like plague.
