Invision scored a brand new partner in the form of Logitech and that’s thanks to some great communication and some splendid PR we are finally bringing you the viewer/reader our first review.
The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury, a mouse, a mouse for gaming, to me, being a massive Blizzard fan the name Hyperion reminded me of the Starcraft 2 Battlecruiser, of coarse the G402 Hyperion Fury has absolutely nothing to do with Starcraft 2 in any way, shape or form, apart from it being Black & Blue.
The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is actually an ultra fast FPS gaming mouse, how is it ultra fast, well lets look at the packaging and see what the company has to say about this mouse and its selling points.
On the front is a simplistic and tech worth view of the mouse.But trying to discribe the mouse was a blank, I had writers block, this was a first for me, so I reached out to a member of my team for a little influence. I got some great quotes, Dynamic, Futury and Ergonomic, with a swoosh of light, was how he discribed the mouse, and I have to admit, I agree.
On the bottom of the front display has the name of the mouse and its selling point “ULTRA FAST FPS GAMING MOUSE”.
When turning the box over you can read about some of the mouses main benefits.
- An optical gaming sensor with exclusive Delta Zero Technology, wondering what Delta Zero Technology is, like I was when I thought WTF is this. Well, after a brief Google search I found this ‘Delta Zero technology is kind of amazing. It provides super smooth tracking over all types of surfaces’
- A high-speed fusion engine built to withstand 420 inches per second, If you think anything like me, fusion engine means only one thing, ‘Space Travel’. I waited for many hours after attaching the device to the USB, but could not find the fusion engine launch commands. Again a quick search on Google I found this that best describes the fusion engine within a mouse ‘Sophisticated sensor technology for ultra-fast gaming’.
- 8 programmable buttons & controls, including DPI-shift
- 4 on-the-fly adjustable dpi settings (240-4.000)
- On-board memory profile
- Ultra-low-friction feet
- Lightweight materials
- Improved streamlined design
We now return to the mouse, and what a mouse this is, slim-ish, futuristic, ergonomic are the words best to describe this mouse. I currently use the Razer Naga Chroma Wireless gaming mouse, when using this mouse, you will find that your whole hand rests on top, even the sides are designed for confort, so your fingers are in a position, that best suits, long gaming sessions. However, it can take some time to getting used to, due to the size of the mouse and the layout they have created.
Its a totally different feeling when using The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury, when you place your hand on the mouse you will instantly feel at home with the design, even for a person that has small hands.
I tend to use a mouse that has loads of buttons, due to me being super lazy and having the ability to program each button for each game, so there are less keys to use on the keyboard. The Razer Naga Chroma, with it’s 19 programmable buttons, a shit load don’t you think, some would say way too many.
So why would I like the The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury with its mere 8 programmable buttons? Well, I have to admit, the maximum amount of buttons I have programmed is around 7, which is for the game Diablo 3. Another issue with the Razer Chroma Mouse, is having loads of buttons on the side of the mouse all placed close together, it does take some time getting used to, even now after 6 months of usage, I am sometimes double checking to make sure I am pressing the correct buttons, or most of the time, I simply press the wrong button in game.
When using the The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury I found the buttons easy to program and use, there was no need to guess or look to make sure I am pressing the correct button, or any opps wrong button mishaps in the game. I found the whole gaming experience, a breath of fresh air.
We were sent a mouse mat to use with the mouse, the Logitech G240 Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad, a slim, lightweight carry around pad suitable for mobile gaming, as well as in house gaming. The mouse felt like it was floating on air, when in use, no snagging, no need for extra pressure, it just felt so smooth. Maybe it floated so well, due to its weight, which is considerably less than the Razer mouse, which I currently use, Razer mouse weight is at 135g and the Hyperion Fury comes in at 108g. May not seem like much of a difference, but you can 100% feel the difference under hand.
The futuristic design of the mouse, helps the Hyperion Fury stand out in a crowd, it’s hypnotic blue LED’s on the G logo, on top of the mouse and the 3 small indicator lights on the left side. I was hoping though, that the black strip on top of the mouse also streak blue, back and forth, a bit like Knight Rider or Tron, I think the idea would benefit the mouse and its futuristic, fusion engine.
The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury uses an STD USB connection, nothing gold plated here, and a rubberised cord, not what I have come to expect of late, the braided cord. I tend to expect braided cords being used of late, thanks to them not tangling up, however, I had no issues with this rubberised cord, for hours and hours of games use, it did not tangle up.
The Logitech Hyperion Fury hits a massive 4000 DPI (Dots per inch), I have all my mice set at around 2400 to 2600DPI and that is very responsive and fast, anymore than 3000, I personally beleive if over sensitive and crazy.
Overall, I found using the mouse, a totally different experience from using the Razer Naga, not a bad experience a good experience, it has just the correct amount of buttons required for the majority of the games I play, and programming them all, is simple and quick, which is great. The small design is perfect under hand and how it glides/floats over the mouse mats surface is wonderful.The blue aesthetic used to help the mouse standout, does exactly that, even when I said I wished for a little more.
You can purchase the mouse from here http://gaming.logitech.com/en-gb/product/g402-hyperion-fury-fps-gaming-mouse.
There are also many other outlets that sell the mouse, so look around.
*I have to return to the fusion engine de-boggle, as you already know, I Googled to find out how Logitech explained the engine, but for some reason, I decided to move the mouse and Swoosh! It’s gone, all I did was push the damn mouse, pretty fast, and Swoosh its gone, a flash of blue light and it disappeared. Maybe Logitech has no idea of this fusion engines capability, but they need to pass it to NASA asap.
If anyone in the future manages to space travel, and come across this mouse on another planet, please return. Or was it all a dream… TBC
