Logitech has been producing excellent wireless gaming mouse for many years. Its sleek, simplistic, and lightweight design will win you over. The Logitech G Pro Wireless gaming mouse is now available for $150. Let’s have a look at the ultimate review:
While the G Pro Wireless looks and feels just like the G900, it performs just as well. This compact, slender mouse has faultless wireless performance and a top-tier sensor, yet it has a basic, stripped-down design and unnecessary weight. In reality, the mouse is remarkably light – and this is likely to be contentious. The same characteristics that make the G Pro Wireless appealing to tournament players may make it more difficult to sell to others looking for a good wireless mouse.
Nonetheless, the G Pro Wireless is a fantastic rendition of what it set out to be. While it’s somewhat pricey (particularly given that the G900 is sometimes available for under $120), the G Pro Wireless is likely to find the sweet spot for gamers who want strong wireless performance for competitive multiplayer games.
Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
I stated in the introduction that this is a light mouse, so you’re probably wondering how light it is. With a weight of just 80g, it is one of the lightest mouse on the market, if not the lightest overall. This enables quicker mouse movement and makes it simpler to pick up and flip about. To put that into perspective, the Razer Mamba Wireless weighs 106g, whereas a wired mouse like the Logitech G502 weighs up to 121g. So trust me when I say that 80G is a featherweight.
Logitech accomplished this by combining a slimmer exoskeleton and a smaller-than-average LiPro battery that lasts a long period. Logitech hasn’t provided specific figures, although the Logitech G Hub software indicated that a full charge lasted around 41 hours. I used it on and off for a week, and the battery only dropped by approximately 5%, which is rather amazing. The internal battery is charged via a USB connection connected to the front of the mouse, and it may be used as a wired mouse while charging.
Aside from its weight, this mouse has several novel characteristics, which we’ll go through one by one. As previously stated, it is an ambidextrous mouse, and Logitech enables for side buttons to be placed on either side or none at all. Should you remove all of the buttons, there are two additional buttons and two more placeholders in the box. The buttons are kept in place by magnets and are simple to remove and replace.
Because of the mouse’s low profile, it isn’t particularly meant for folks who like to hold a large mouse firmly in their hand. If you’re like me and grab the mouse with your pinky and thumb on the sides, it’s rather comfy in a Goldilocks kind of sense; not too large, not too little, just perfect. The whole mouse is made of smooth, black plastic with no roughness, which I wouldn’t say I liked since I like some additional edges.
Another novel and perhaps contentious design choice is that the mouse’s DPI toggle button is located under the mouse. Logitech relocated the button to the beast’s belly rather than beneath the mouse wheel or anywhere readily accessible. In the press conference on this, they said that their study has shown that most people never use it. Thus it just gets in the way. However, it is evident that some people desire it, so they tossed it on the mouse’s bottom to make those individuals happy. I’m completely OK with this since I’m one of those folks that never change the DPI. I have it set at about 1,000 and never adjust it.
Depending on your preferences, the G Pro Wireless runs either the Logitech Gaming Software or the newer Logitech G Hub. As I’ve said in previous articles, Logitech Gaming Software is strong and dependable, but it looks and feels antiquated. The Logitech G Hub is smooth and sleek, yet it still has a few flaws.
In any case, the software is useful and allows you to handle many aspects of the G Pro Wireless. DPI levels, button commands, and RGB lighting for both the G logo on the palm rest and the three DPI-indication dots on the front may be customized. ( Unfortunately, you don’t see the dots very frequently. I would have loved to see a couple of additional lights on the mouse’s surface.
Logitech believes that the mouse may last between 40 and 50 hours on a single charge, depending on your lighting preferences. During my personal usage of the mouse, I discovered that I lost slightly more than 2% of its battery every hour, indicating that the company’s prediction is most likely correct. Thanks to the inclusion of a lengthy, braided cable, you can play while charging, and wireless reception looks to be faultless.
Logitech’s Gaming Software was previously among the finest for peripheral customization, but the business has outdone themselves with the all-new G Hub software package. It is simple to use, rationally arranged, and simple enough that anybody may use it.
You can perform all of the usual things here, such as tweaking DPI settings (up to five are permitted, although you may have as few as two), altering the lighting, recording and assigning macros, and much, much more. Most actions are drag-and-drop, making it very simple to use. If you don’t want one of the DPI allocations, for example, drag it off the line in the program. You may also reassign instructions by dragging them from a menu onto the buttons themselves. It’s quite simple to use.
The Pro Wireless includes inbuilt memory that enables you to store up to five profiles, allowing you to remove the mouse and move it to another computer, perhaps during a tournament, with all your settings for certain games ready. Set one of the buttons to Profile Switch, as I did with the mouse wheel click.
Overall, it’s a complex suite with many choices, yet its user-friendly design never seems overpowering.
Whether the G Pro Wireless is superior to any other gaming mouse for competitive play is determined by your tastes. The G Pro Wireless is very light and, in many ways, more streamlined than any similar peripheral. It functions well as a Logitech mouse.
Everyday gamers will most likely be able to get by with something less expensive, such as the aforementioned G603 or G305. However, for those looking to create a name for themselves in the tournament arena, the G Pro Wireless is certainly worth a look. Just be sure the G900 isn’t a better fit for you before you go for your money.
