In the gaming mice industry, Logitech is one of the most popular names and pioneers in this area. They’ve been making such products for over 16 years and after producing devices that are simple, elegant, and comfortable, Logitech decided to make shift gears to try out something new, and it actually was a great decision.
This time, Logitech decided to involve a number of top-level and professional eSports players from different parts of the globe. They’ve requested these individuals to give their inputs for developing, processing, and creating their new G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse. Based on the company’s claims, this is one device that we can all call endgame, or can we really do so?
Today, we’re focusing on this new gaming mouse from Logitech, and see if it’s just as good as they say it is.
Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse Review – What’s in the Box?
The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse comes in a nicely-made, thick, and stylish package with a mold on its lower and upper portion. These help protect the device from sudden impacts that may occur during transit. The box does not have any flap or plastic covers as well; when you open the box, you’ll immediately see the G Pro.
You will find the other accessories beneath the mouse holder; and other than the G Pro itself, you will find a wireless transmitter, cable, modular side buttons, instructional manuals, and the side button covers.
Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
To keep its weight low, Logitech used plastic for the mouse’s whole body. It doesn’t have any superfluous elements such as side grips made of rubber. The G Pro’s shell is also extra thin and measures just a millimeter. You’d think it won’t have a good and solid feel to it, but it does and has no flex.
The plastic has a nice, smooth finish, and the scroll wheel features a rubber strip where the notches are. The good thing about it is that this is the only rubber you’ll get on the G Pro wireless gaming mouse.
Its left and right buttons are crisp and firm but are still very easy to click; plus, these are also separated from the shell and ends just slightly before the halfway point. We’ve already been using the mouse for almost a week already, and so far, we haven’t had any accidental clicks. The scroll wheel is good to press and it also has just the right amount of resistance whenever you scroll.
When it comes to the side buttons, these are small and don’t get in the way. These are also modular so you can completely remove them or have either one of them set on the right or left side. Speaking of the side buttons, these have less travel and feels much lighter compared to the other mice from Logitech.
You’ll see the DPI button at the bottom of the device so you won’t accidentally hit this while gaming. There are also three light indicators at the top; these will show you what DPI setting you’re in. Under the device, there are four feet: a long one on top and three little ones that surround the hats of the PowerPlay. Since the feet are small, it works perfectly with the G Pro’s weight, giving you a snappy, fast, and smooth feel.
The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse can also be used with a wire since it comes with a nice, soft, yet durable rubber cable. A good thing about the cable is that it won’t drag on the mouse pad since it’s smooth and light. When you aren’t utilizing the cable, you can plug the wireless receiver and the USB dongle to it.
Speaking of the USB receiver, it can be kept at the bottom of the G Pro, specifically in a slot within the Power Play hatch so you won’t lose it during travels.

Resolution is from 100 to 16,000 DPI with a maximum speed of > 400 IPS and maximum acceleration of > 40 G3 Tested on the Logitech G240 Gaming Mouse Pad.

Extremely Accurate Gaming Sensor
Based on what eSports pros strive for, Logitech catered to their needs with the G Pro. The company created the HERO 16K which has been improved to easily track extreme flick speeds that can go over 400 IPS without spinning out.
The HERO 16K is a good feature since it delivers peak performance at any amount of sensitivity with zero acceleration, smoothing, or even filtering from 100 – 16,000 DPI. Not only that, but it also consumes ten times less power compared to its predecessors, giving you better, lighter, and much longer battery life.
Lightspeed and Wireless
If you’re a pro, then having a wireless device is extremely vital. Most of the time, cord dragging produces distraction and friction that is very unacceptable for professional eSports. This creative wireless technology is able to overcome any limitation of connectivity, latency, and power to provide you with lag-free and consistent 1ms report rate connection without wires.
4 – 8 Programmable Buttons
What makes the G Pro wireless an ultimately ambidextrous device is its removable right and left side buttons. It lets you and other pros choose how many side buttons you want: none to four, it’s all based on your choice and preferences. The DPI button can be found under the mouse to prevent any unnecessary DPI shifts during a game.
The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse can be utilized out of the box with the preset button settings or it can be configured completely based on your preferences via the Logitech Gaming Software.
Light Sync RGB
The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse comes with a ~16.8M color customizing feature that is great for representing team colors, synchronizing with other G devices, or personalizing your setup. This also comes with a game-driven lighting effect that responds to audio visualization, in-game action, sampling, screen color, and a lot more.
It’s also good that the G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse has an onboard memory so you can utilize the to save preferences straight to the mouse. This is for quick, easy, and more convenient use especially for tournament systems. The settings of the device will remain consistent from stage to home, so you can skip installing your custom software and forget about re-configuring your settings to get straight to the game.

Using the Product
We had a couple of days to almost a week of testing the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse for gaming, and honestly, we had tons of fun with its smoothness, performance, and lightweight design. It surely lives up to its name and it sure is a device that is designed for everyone who simply wants a quick mouse without all the fuss. We tried a bunch of games with different genres and the mouse worked flawlessly; though we do think that it really excels in shooting and other fast games that require excellent accuracy.
We really loved how the sensor worked, it’s nearly impossible to make the mouse spin out, even during aggressive tilt slamming, the G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse still tracks flawlessly and smoothly. All in all, we were highly impressed with the G Pro’s performance, so we’re giving this a solid thumbs up.
Logitech Gaming Software
The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse makes use of the Logitech Gaming Software to alter the resolution settings, as well as to make changes to the lighting effects. The software’s latest version does not remake the previous iterations’ wheel, and instead, sticks with the basic function. You’ll get to set a total of five DPI presets to the button for DPI cycling.
It should be noted that the G Pro mouse is also supported by the company’s software revamp – the G Hub. It is a new system that streamlines updating and syncing Logitech devices. Plus, it will also provide heightened customizations for macros and a lot more.
The drag-and-drop system that’s available in the G Hub is immensely impressive. You will also see more lighting options like having the RGB lights copy on-screen shades. Basically, if your screen flashes blue, your mouse would mimic the color and would be blue too. Just like what Logitech mentioned, you will have the choice of using either the Hub or Logitech Gaming Software with the G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse.
The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is extremely light and possibly the most streamlined mouse today. As a Logitech device, it performs increasingly well and it does so naturally
If you’re someone who’s into ambidextrous mice, then this is surely the best FPS mouse that you can purchase today. With its modular setup plus the G-shift software, you’ll get to macro additional function on any button of your choice.
If you’re a pro or aiming to make a mark on the tournament scene, then we highly recommend the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse for your needs.
