Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse review

Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse review

wireless mouse Not everyone needs dozens of additional buttons adorning their mice, and if that s you and you prefer a simpler ambidextrous mouse, the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse could be the ideal match for your needs. You ‘ll need to lay aside a serious sum to acquire it, however. &#;

The good Tracks at up to, DPI

 

  • Configurable for ambidextrous usage
  • Lightspeed RGB is silly but fun
  • Superb battery life
  • The bad It s expensive
  • Relatively few buttons
  • Dull styling
  • Not every single piece of gaming-level PC gear needs to look flashy. Sometimes, and for some folks, what you re after is more tailored towards hitting the functional basics in the best possible way.

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse could never be described as a flashy mouse. However, that one essential job – of accurately removing your foe s heads from their shoulders, one click at a time – is something its superbly capable of.

    Design Flat, minimalistic design

  • Ambidextrous capable – with a little work
  • Single RGB logo light
  • Wired or wireless connection
  • Let s be honest here. Amongst the pantheon of gaming mice, the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse is t going to win any beauty contests. Frankly, it’s not likely to place within the final sixteen.

    It s a very plainly styled mouse that s somewhat evocative of the classic Microsoft Pro Intellimouse design with a matte black finish and a single RGB Logitech G logo to make it particularly stand out visually.

    At first glance, you might also figure that the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse was mostly-but-not-quite ambidextrous. The shape certainly is, but there are two right-hand side buttons, where the left-hand side has flattened shapes.

    This is where the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse s design gets quite clever, because all four side buttons, two pairs each side, are held in place with magnets. It s child s play to remove them which does mean, with a note of caution, that the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse could be a bit of a choking hazard and you resupplied with enough spares to configure the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse to suit your hand and playstyle.

    Want the default two right-hand buttons? There s nothing to do. Want two on the left? It ll take you about seconds to make that happen. Want all four active both sides? Again, a little button swapping and you re away. Want one front-facing right-side button and one rear-facing side left button? You re a weirdo. But even that configuration is technically feasible.

    Beyond the configurable buttons, the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse is as plain as plain can be. There are the standard left-right buttons, a mouse wheel, and a button underneath for changing DPI settings, and that s your lot.

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse is specifically built to be light, weighing in at just grams when used wirelessly. That s slightly heftier than the Razer Viper Ambidextrous Wired Gaming Mouse, but they re both serving the same audience of mouse users who prefer the lightweight touch. If you re a fan of heavier mice or those that allow for variable weights, you ‘ll need to look elsewhere.

    As the name suggests, the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse is primarily designed to work free of cables, but you can plug it into your PC or Mac if that s your preferred style. You ‘ll need to do so for charging purposes from time to time anyway, but the set-up for this includes what amounts to a pass-through MicroUSB cable that plugs into an adaptor that then plugs into the actual USB receiver. It does make switching from wired to wireless use or vice versa quite painless.

    Performance HERO sensor offers up to, DPI

  • Limited buttons
  • The scroll wheel is ratchet-style only
  • Wireless performance is excellent
  • The Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse uses the Logitech HERO sensor for increased accuracy, with up to, DPI tracking. Like so many of its siblings and competitors, that s a selectable matter through Logitech s software and the DPI switch that by default sits on the underside of the mouse itself.

    Logitech s position on this appears to be that underside buttons aren t going to be tapped in the heat of battle. For those of us who like to switch it up, you ‘ll have to sacrifice a top-facing button for DPI switching if it is important to you.

    Compared to most gaming mice, the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse is t awash with additional buttons for you to configure. If you were so minded, you could leave it as an effective -button mouse including the scroll wheel by switching out the side button plates. The most you re going to have in any configuration directly is buttons to change up your play style.

    Button actuation on the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse is absolutely fine; while I can t even remotely begin to count myself as an esports pro, I had no issues across a range of game genres with the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse. The one feature I do wish Logitech had included on the Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse – and that s very much present on the Logitech G Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse – is the option to switch the scroll wheel between smooth and ratcheted scrolling. The Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse s scroll wheel is ratchet only, so if that s not to your tastes, you re a bit stuck.
