Logitech G-Hub is the Worst Software
In 2019, logitech released G-Hub, their latest software for their gaming keyboard and mouse.
G-Hub is the worst software possible, to the degree that i no longer recommend logitech mouse.
The g-hub bricked my onboard memory settings for Logitech G502 Mouse.
the g-hub is primarily cloud based. Logitech few years ago has truly the best software “Logitech Gaming Software” . Most easy to use and powerful. But now, ghub, the worst. And also greedy. It is problematic to program the onboard memory, forcing you to need to install their driver software plus internet connection and sending your data to them. Like Razer is doing.
When buying a mouse or keyboard, the most important thing is programability and onboard memory. Meaning, set keys to what you want, and plug in the mouse in any computer, and you have your settings, no need to install another software or spend time to config again. Logitech stuff been good. But now like razer, faak. They now focusing on cloud. Require their driver software always present, and internet connection, so they can monitor your usage and sending your stat to them so they can sell data. But the faaking idiotic gamers, teen whatnot, think oh my god so cool auto profiles etc shit.

The Logitech Gaming Software that was used with older hardware was fantastic. I used a g602 and had to replace it so I went with the updated g604. The mouse itself is fine, feels like an improvement in terms of construction, battery life, feel, etc.
However, it wasn't detected by the Logitech Gaming Software which I found out it uses a new software, ghub. Ghub is inferior to the older Logitech Gaming Software in many ways. Some of them..ridiculous. I have no idea why you would tie your new hardware to a buggy software that doesn't seem to have had any sort of UI product testing..
Some of the problems:
- 1. You can't directly assign buttons. Have to pick them off a list which you can't add to... Logitech Gaming Software could do this
- 2. Can't assign keys with modifiers (Shift, Alt, Ctrl). Logitech Gaming Software could do this
- 3. It really wants you to use buttons to change DPI. I tend not to change DPI very often, but it keeps setting the DPI to other values even though I unassigned and disabled the DPI buttons. DPI problems all over Logitech's reddit.
- 4. With that turned off, the mouse just seems to lose the DPI setting from the software.
- 5. There's another problem where the DPI doesn't seem to register. I mean that it loses the DPI setting and I have to go back to the software and change the DPI to get it back.
- 6. Still have no idea how to delete profiles that it automatically added
- 7. Software has problems with saving to onboard memory. Well, to be fair, I have no idea if it's a bug or more terrible UI. It's all greyed out and when I switch to onboard memory the dpi goes back down to like 400
- 8. Everything is a struggle. Buttons do different things depending on what "page" you're on..
I honestly don't know how a company the size of logitech with the professionals at their disposal could possibly release such a POS interface.
