Our Thoughts

Initially I was slightly skeptical of the Logitech G Pro, whenever a gaming mouse or any product in general has such a large positive influence across the web I become very hesitant to jump on board the band wagon. So, when the mouse arrived at my door, it already knew it was going to have to shine extra bright to get into my good books, and it did. The Logitech G Pro is a sleek beauty which performs above and beyond what you would expect, but it does come with a price and a considerable one at that.

Pros

  • Lightweight – the Logitech G Pro comes in at just 80 grams
  • Comfortable & Ambidextrous – fantastic design and shape
  • Great sensor performance – the hero sensor works wonders

Cons

  • Expensive – at more than £100/$100 it won’t fit everyone’s budget
  • Medium size – some people will find the G Pro Wireless too small for their hands

What is the Logitech G Pro Wireless?

The G Pro Wireless is Logitech’s pièce de résistance, it’s ultimate gaming mouse built for competitive gamers. It combines their latest HERO (high efficiency rated optical) sensor and Lightspeed wireless technology into a sleek and simplistic design that has just a hint of flare thanks to the RGB lighting.

With it’s ambidextrous design you get the option of having buttons on both sides, either sides or no sides at all – this is especially good for those who play MMO and need additional buttons, personally I prefer no buttons, just give me a right and left click and I am happy.

Size & Weight

Weight and size are undeniably important (however preferential) when it comes to gaming performance in a professional mouse. Logitech have really gone to work to shave off as much weight as possible leading to a 1mm thin outer shell. The total weight is approximately 80 grams.

The physical specifications equate to a height of 125mm, width of 63.5mm and a depth of 40mm. The majority of serious players who use this mouse find the weight and shape to be both ergonomic for long gaming sessions, as well as ambidextrous friendly.

what is the weight, where does this sit in comparison to similar mice and size is it good for small, medium, large hands is it ambidextrous?

Buttons

does the mouse have additional buttons, if so how many, whats the position, comfortable or not, customisable, removable? Actuation of clicks, length of click, length of buttons e.t.c.

Scroll Wheel

easy to use, grippy, slow, fast

Shape, Texture & Materials

(consider perspiration, climate of gamer) – material used, how it effects perspiration, is it grippy, is the shape wide, long, narrow, chunky, deep e.t.c.

Cable

(length / thickness / material) – if wired obviously… does it drag, is it thick or thin, flexible or not e.t.c would you recommend a mouse bungee

Response Time

Aside from lag and other issues we try to avoid, the responsiveness of a mouse can really make the difference between consistently coming out on top, and losing fair exchanges all too frequently. Although for a long time wired mice were preferred due to having better response times, Logitech has made this a non-factor with their Lightspeed wireless technology. This equates to a report rate of 1000 Hz or 1ms.

To put this in perspective, it’s the most popular mouse used by professional gamer’s in Blizzard’s Overwatch League. So whether there are millions of dollars up for grabs, or you’re just looking for the best mouse for your money to unwind, response time isn’t a reason to turn this one piece of hardware down.

Logitech G Pro Wireless: Performance

how does it rate playing games, overall as a gaming mouse vs competitors at its level, does it remind you of any other mouse?

Charging Time & Battery Life

Estimated battery life – 49 hours with RGB on & 63 hours with RGB off

The Logitech G Pro uses a lithium-ion polymer (LiPo) rechargeable battery that is lightweight, and has a staggering battery life of 48 hours with the default lighting. However, gamers have the choice of turning off the RGB lighting to extend this to 60+ hours. The mouse contains onboard memory which means you can also monitor the battery life by downloading LGS (Logitech Gaming Software).

Charging is possible with the included 1.8m USB cable, and it’s even possible to use Logitech’s wireless charging mat. When plugged in, charging time may take around 30 minutes. It’s worth noting that the mouse will automatically stop charging, so you can plug it in when you’re away from your computer or between gaming sessions. You can also monitor the progress through LGS.
