Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Review – Intro

Check out this Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Review if you need a durable mouse that fits in most hands and can be used with all types of grips.

So to start, seeing this mouse with only 4000 DPI! and with this price and you might think why you should even consider it. Let’s see a video about DPI.

DPI

This guy uses an 1080p monitor (FHD)

Look at the above video with even 3000 DPI how much you move the mouse and how it moves on the screen. You certainly don’t need more than that.

So for a 1080p (FHD) monitor, 4000 DPI is more than enough to keep you happy!

You might need more DPI for example if you play on many screens or on a 4K monitor. But even with a 4K monitor 4000 DPI is good enough unless you must aim from one side to the other!

There is one thing that is important about DPI. The DPI increments. This mouse offers 40 DPI increments so you can customize it to your needs.

DPI Shifting

Like gears, DPI Shifting provides a method to switch DPI using the buttons on the mouse. This boy can shift between 4 DPI Modes that you choose.

Polling Rate

I’m sure you have heard about this feature a lot. 1ms is the highest polling rate available and all the mice have it. But as with the DPI, it’s good for a mouse to give you options.

For the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury you can change from 125Hz to 1000Hz (1ms) Polling Rate. Check the following video out to see that having the mouse at max Polling Rate is not always useful but worse.

8 Programmable Buttons

With 8 Programmable Buttons, this mouse can be used not only for FPS but for MOBA and MMORPG games easily.

Anime Intro Break

Bleach was an anime I watched. You can post your recommended Anime in the comments as well together with your opinion, experience regarding the Logitech G402(the mouse) or this Logitech G402 Review!

What matters most

So apart from all the above features mentioned, what matters most is that the mouse must fit your hand and not cause pain if you are using it for long hours.

Check out this review of Linus Tech Tips (apart from the ads starting at 6:45!).

Acceleration

For most cases, Acceleration is not useful so it’s better to disable it (if enabled).

Durability

Some helpful Amazon reviews mention that this mouse has lasted them 2-3 years. Let’s take some quotes out of them!

“Update: (Nov 2018) it has been about 2 years since I purchased this mouse and it still works as well as the day I bought it. I have no complaints and still the best mouse I’ve owned. “

“Update as of June 3, 2018: This mouse is still working great after 3 years and I recommend it to anyone that wants a nice mouse that doesn’t break the bank. “

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury

Good Quality Gaming Mouse that is also Durable.

Editor's Rating:
4

There are so many brands and mice at almost the same price of Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury. All offer the some core funtions that all gaming mice these days offer (Onboard Memory, 1Hz Polling Rate, High DPI, Many programmable buttons etc.) The most important is material quality, durability and ergonomics.

You can check my Logitech G203 Prodigy Review if you want something cheaper (but great nonetheless).

You can check out my Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse Review if you want a mouse with more buttons that can help with your productivity as well.

Wish you all the best,

  1. Thank you for the nice review of the world’s fastest gaming mouse. The features are great those might attract to the game lovers. The review about the durability has also been great, so one can easily use it for a long time. They are giving 2 years of warranty which sounds also good. Those who wish to purchase this product can check the rating and review.

    • Well, it’s not the fastest but you can play competitive games with it as well. Durability and comfort for long hours is what matters most.

  2. Thanks for the thorough review of the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury mouse. It seems like a solid performer that will more than suffice for gaming, and the price is also reasonable. I am looking for a new mouse, the one I have for gaming is over three years old, and some features have stopped working.

    On the G402 I will have plenty of options to set it up in the way I want, and the materials are good too so it should last for 3-4 years. I have noticed that some of the options out there may have lots of features but the build is not that good, this is from reviews of users.

    Your video showing the effect that a higher polling rate while playing games may not be useful for some games is a good point about that feature maybe not being useful, while the 8 programmable buttons feature is going to be quite handy and will be used by me for sure. 

    The fit for my hand is not that different from what I am using now, so that will not be an issue, so overall this is likely what O will go with as a replacement. It is available here in Dubai through Amazon and I will head now over to that site to order this. Thanks for the good info and review!

    • Also i mentioned about the DPI because you see cheap mice with 10k or 20k DPI and people think they will perform better. With a normal screen 3 – 4K DPI is enough, what matters most is durability through time and comfort for long hours.

      Well clicking issues are a good point to rate a mouse too (for example mouse doesn’t register some clicks or if you press once and it double clicks).

      If you want something with more buttons, you can always get the G600 MMO Gaming Mouse. It has 20 programmable buttons. Or any other MMO mouse (they usually have lots of buttons!).

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day.

  3. Hi George, 

    Thanks for your review as i was thinking about getting this mouse but i wasnt sure if the grip was actually nice.
    I currently have a mouse that doesnt really fit my palm so it starts to hurt after long sessions.

    After your statement about it not fitting wide hands with palm grip i will skip this one!
    Will take a look at the other mouses you listed.

    Great review!

    • You can take the G203 if you want something cheaper. Or if you need more buttons, the G600 has 20 programmable buttons and is popular.

  4. Not being a gamer was a little confused to start with, however the review seems to be very thorough and the mouse would appear to be ideal for most gamers, including my grandsons, liked the length of time that it lasts for.

    Was not quite sure why so many mice were displayed, are they really needed, as to me what you were reviewing with content seemed to be sufficient, unless I have missed the point.

    • Hello Stuart. Logitech is a known brand for their quality of mice (and not only mice) and the G402 Hyperion Fury is a well known gaming mouse. As the review mentions, it’s durable but that’s one crucial thing to consider. Second most crucial is how it fits your hand. Gamers tend to play for long hours so a mouse branded for gaming must be usable for long hours and be very comfortable.

      Also it’s quite cheap. The Logitech G203 Prodigy is a little cheaper than this and is well known as well.

      The reason I put all the other mice is because looking at the competition doesn’t hurt. Everyone comes with a different opinion so he or she might like something else.

      Also there is also the geek factor that just wants to see all that’s available.

      The competition section might be a good idea or bad. But I have to try to learn about that. Have a nice day.

  5. Looks like a pretty solid mouse as functionality goes, the Logitech G402 that is, and I like the look too. I agree that 4000 DPI is more than enough, but I like how DPI is customizable. Interesting how having the mouse at Max Polling rate can be worse. I really like the Redragon M901, but my favorite probably is the Rytaki Gaming Mouse. This is a nice and thorough list of “mice” here and I have bookmarked your page, great work!

    • Hello there. Glad you liked the competition section. The Redragon M901 has good rating and lots of reviews, it might be good if you like trying different mice (and can afford that of course).
