Logitech G Pro Mouse Review
With a flexible, low body, and slim and lightweight profile, the G Pro is very reminiscent of the beloved Logitech G100s mouse. The G Pro is one of the weightless & smallest gaming mice on the market. That is not only good news for people with little hands. But those who prefer a fast mouse, potentially DPI (dots per inch sensitivity) larger mouse than heavier ones that provide greater control.
G Pro keeps everything relatively simple with only six buttons: left button, right button, clickable scroll wheel, DPI selector directly under the wheel and two thumb buttons on the left side. Until you click on the thumb button, it’s hard to describe how responsive they are. They feel resistant and right and like to click again and again.
My only real criticism here is that although the G Pro design is almost entirely ambidextrous, there is no choice for left-handed players. I understand that this is not an option in ergonomic mice, but the G Pro is nearly wholly symmetrical. A set of buttons or lefty configurations can help demographics that have traditionally not been able to make full use of the Logitech mouse. And G Pro will be the right place to start.
G Pro supported by Logitech Gaming Software, as do all other modern Logitech gaming devices, and it’s still the best of the best programs on the market. With this program, you can assign commands to buttons, change DPI, set your mouse to an activated surface, set different profiles for different games, and even change the G Pro color scheme. The mouse has full RGB capability, and although there is only one lighting zone. It is still a nice touch to be able to choose whatever color you like.
Logitech told me that while Pro G has an eSports audience in mind, the mouse must also be accessible to more casual players. With that in mind, I run it through competitive multiplayer games and daily adventure titles to see how it survives. The results are right on both lines.
For competitive scenes, I tried the Overwatch first-person shooter and StarCraft II real-time strategy game. After mapping the buttons and adjusting the color profile for each game, I immediately entered and immediately felt at home. G Pro feels responsive and easy to use when defending my teammates as D-Va on Overwatch. And it also helps when ordering my Terran troops to attack Zerg’s enemies on StarCraft.
Players who like sniper characters in FPS matches might want to stick with something like the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. It has a unique “sniper” button to slow down the DPI while temporarily lining up shots.
In Rise of the Tomb Raider and Marvel Heroes, which is a right mouse that’s good but not necessary, G Pro also handles itself well. Mapping some of my special attacks on the thumb button makes the occupant captain as Captain America. And we sneak past armed thugs in the snowy Siberian landscape because Lara Croft is just as smooth.
G Pro is a high-quality mouse with smart design and powerful software. Logitech’s goal is to make a mouse that matches tournament players and single-player fans, and in this case, I think it works. The question is, is it more successful than other Logitech mice?
The Daedalus Apex is not as comfortable as that, but things are almost the same under the hood. Proteus Spectrum is more flexible and only slightly more expensive. The G402 Hyperion Fury has a better unusual design but offers similar benefits to FPS players.
Because of its small size, lightweight, and responsive buttons, the G Pro manages to carve its niche in the crowded world of a gaming mouse. That may not be the last word on competitive peripherals, but it is a strong competitor.
- There is no left-handed option
- Somewhat similar to other Logitech mice
- Slim design
- Responsive button
- Intuitive software
- Beautiful lighting
Conclusion> With a proven design and robust software, Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse, is a respectable choice for competitive players.
