The Logitech G502 series has long been a favorite among gamers. The Logitech G502 Proteus Core even has its own 20,000-member subreddit. Logitech’s since updated the G502 into the Proteus Spectrum and now the G502 Hero and Hero SE. Thanks to a new deal on Best Buy, you can now snag a Logitech G502 Hero SE of your own for $29.99, or $50 off its usual 79.99 asking price.

The Logitech G502 Hero SE, which is simply a color-swap of the original Hero, uses an improved version of the Proteus Core’s sensor, called the Logitech Hero, with up to 16,000 CPI, over 400 IPS and a 1ms report rate t. It also retains the tunable weight of the Proteus Core with five 3.6g removable weights to modify the 4.30-ounce base weight, plus 11 programmable buttons and an RGB logo that you can customize across five different profiles.

Logitech’s G502 Hero SE mouse is the update to the popular G502 Proteus Core mouse, as well as the wired version of the G502 Lightspeed. It has a max CPI of 16,000, comes with five removable 3.6g weights and 11 programmable buttons and can support five different profiles.

For those keeping track, the G502 Hero SE is also the wired version of the G502 Lightspeed, which is listed on our Best Gaming Mouse page. Our biggest concern with the G502 Lightspeed was the price, so if you’re like me and prefer wired mice anyway, this deal is a great way to get the high-end performance without breaking the bank.

    Great mouse. I have one for both work and home.

    It's a decent mouse, but I hate the scroll wheel on it. Some love it, some hate it. I also have the G403 Hero, that I picked up for the same price during the last Black Friday sales. I own both, but prefer the G403.

    just gonna mention its regularly on sale on Amazon.
    SE was aroudn $34~ 2months ago for quite a while.

    currently on sale for bit over $40 (been there for awhile too)

    Yeah, I got both of mine at different times for $30. So if you're paying more, you're paying to much. In that light, it goes to show how crazy overpriced mice are when $30 gets you all this and you KNOW they're still making money on that.

    Sold out yesterday. Now $40 ($39.99)

    It gets the job done, but I still miss my G9.

    I bought 3 of these about 4 months ago when they were on sale. Two are broke already.
