Originally announced to the world in November, Logitech has unveiled the latest gaming mouse for Malaysian market in the form of Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime during last weekend’s Comic Fiesta 2014. Said to be designed with the help from some of the top professional gamers in the world, the G302 Daedalus Prime is meant for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games such as Dota 2 and League of Legends.
So, what has the Swiss computer peripherals company cooked into the new gaming mouse to made it prime (pun intended) for MOBA enthusiasts out there? Read on to learn more.
Equipped with built-in memory that is able to store up to four sensitivity settings, the Delta Zero optical sensor within G302 Daedalus Prime has a sensitivity range of 240 to 4000 DPI. These four settings can be accessed easily during game session through the gaming mouse’s on-the-fly DPI switcher button that is located just underneath its scroll wheel.
Using Logitech Gaming Software, all of the six buttons on G302 Daedalus Prime can be programmed with either single action or multiple-command macros. Interesting enough, users are able to also save these personalized button settings into the mouse’s built-in memory. The 128 grams gaming mouse also features a built-in 32-bit ARM-based microprocessor and 1000Hz report rate.
Specific to the G302 Daedalus Prime’s left and right click buttons, Logitech has built a metal spring tensioning system for them that apparently able to reduce pre-travel and backlash which subsequently improve their click feel and responsiveness. These buttons have also been tested to survive 20 million clicks which equals to 15 hours of usage by an eSports athlete on daily basis for two years according to the company.
Logitech has also stated that the look, feel, and shape of G302 Daedalus Prime were based on the feedback from professional gamers that the company consulted with which include players from Team SoloMid, Cloud 9, CJ Entus Frost, CJ Entus Blaze and Invictus Gaming. Hence, we suppose that if you not a fan of the illuminated geometric patterns that are located on both sides of the gaming mouse, you can blame these players then. We noticed that there are also textured rubber spots surrounding these patterns which most probably are there to provide extra amount of grip for users.
If there is an immediate concern from us regarding G302 Daedalus Prime, that would be the location of two side buttons which are positioned on the left side of the mouse. This rather showed the G302 Daedalus Prime might be primarily made for right handed users, even though that it is suitable for both left and right handed gamers.
The new Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime is now available at authorized Logitech dealers throughout Malaysia for RM 129 which is rather affordable for a gaming mouse with its calibre. For further information, just head on to www.logitech.com.
