Appearance and elements layout

 

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury

Gaming Mouse Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury at first sight raises interest. The housing is narrowed, and also has many twists and projections, which together with the applied glossy elements makes it quite stylish. Appearance of the device resembles a racing car, due to its positioning as "the world's fastest gaming mouse" (according to the manufacturer's internal testing in June 2014). Despite the abundance of design features, build quality and overall body rigidity can be called excellent. The basic material is black plastic that is not cheap and has some good tactile properties, and good resistance to wear. The latter characteristic is not applicable to the glossy case elements, which traditionally collect fingerprints and small scratches.

Rubberized and smooth scroll wheel is located inside the oblong glossy area. It is slightly recessed into the body, so is below the plane of the main keys. Also, this area combines glossy lines along the back of the manipulator and visually divides it into tactile zones. Additional buttons are not behind the wheel, but put to the subjectively more comfortable place - a lateral side of the left button of the mouse. Glossy buttons [G7] and [G8] are highlighted a higher profile, and their area of pressing is performed at an angle to the plane of the main button, which positively affects the ergonomics. Near the rear of the manipulator is a logo that has a soft blue light. By the way, about half of the rear part is presented by rubberized plastic, it is not soft, but very pleasant to the touch.

A similar coating is used on the left side of the mouse. There are three additional buttons of different shapes and sizes, as well as three-position indicator of sensitivity. For better ergonomics and easy pressing [G5] and [G4] are in the direction of the thumb. To eliminate the drawbacks of such positioning of the controls and the axis of pressing the buttons are put in a special groove of the housing, which, in addition to its main task, gives zest to the appearance of the mouse. The button with the image of the sight is designed to quickly reduce sensitivity of the sensor.

The right side is visually divided by glossy line with the tactile zone. It is located closer to the main keys and has a rubberized relief (in contrast to the opposite sidewall). The second part of the side is represented by the usual plastic, is a continuation of the back of the chassis.

The designers of Logitech have paid a lot of attention to the mouse base. According to shape this surface resembles the logo of company Umbrella, which may be familiar to users of games and film series "Resident of Evil". Here are four fairly large Teflon legs, eye optical sensor and the model name of the device. The legs provide smooth and really fast movement of the mouse on plastic mats and hybrid pads. The lacquered tabletop also is suitable for the manipulator, but with less pleasant tactile feedback and a loud traffic on the surface.

Communication with the computer is realized via a 2-meter wire, which is attached to the front of the housing. It is worth noting that it is not protected by braid. The main buttons are slightly different from each other by the shape, position and length. It is made specifically to improve the ergonomics of the device. Narrowed rear casing has no any structural elements.

Mouse features  

 

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury

The main feature of the game manipulator Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is its speed, which according to the manufacturer has no competitive peers (at the time of issue in June 2014). These words prove the lightning tracking movements with speeds up to 500 inches per second (12.7 m/s) than can not boast of any other solutions. Such a result of internal testing was made possible thanks to the use of the optical sensor Logitech Delta Zero paired with a specially designed hybrid sensor Fusion Engine. For their collaboration the manipulator has integrated 32-bit ARM processor and a permanent memory, which is also responsible for maintaining and fast playback of macros.

Perhaps the only disadvantage of using an optical sensor instead of the laser can be named not the record value of the sensitivity of the sensor, which is not more than 4000 dpi. However, in this case, the bet is put on the processing speed of the data obtained when moving the device. In general, the optical sensor works good, recognizing the movement even on surfaces such as lacquered tabletop and upholstery of the sofa, but still it shows the best results on the mouse pad, used by the majority of gamers.
