What could have been the greatest gaming mouse to date, plagued with poor design. While many may point the Logitech G Hub software as the pitfall for all Logitech Gaming products, this mouse in particular really only has one hardware defect.
You were the chosen one, Logitech G Pro Wireless. It was said that you would destroy the noobs, not help them. Bring balance to the gunfight, not mistakenly switch to my knife.
I don’t think there’s better wireless mouse technology on the market, than what Logitech is offering. I know Razer offers something similar, and even other companies like Roccat are even starting to finally catch up and join the wireless gaming party. As of this moment though, I truly believe Logitech takes the crown with it’s Lightspeed wireless technology.
Another meaningful category Logitech Gaming tends to lead the pack with, would be it’s sensor. The Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse comes equipped with the HERO 16k, and through the G Hub software you may scale all the way from 100 to 16,000 dpi.
Let’s talk design, because this is where things become bittersweet. The lightweight plastic is ideal for this mouse, because typically wireless mice are a bit heavy. The G Pro Wireless comes in at 95 grams. Being below 100g is astonishing. If you have the intuition, there’s some YouTube tutorials floating around that will help reduce even more weight from the G Pro Wireless.
Enough about the weight though, the plastic feels cheap but it’s durable. Not a lot of creaking going on, so it’s solid in my opinion. But the main reason I prefer this over the much beloved Logitech G502, is there’s no wobble weight or shifts. With the G502, the mouse wheel wobbles when moving the mouse around. It really screwed with my mind, and I couldn’t get over it. I think the scroll wheel itself on the G Pro Wireless is fine, it’s not loud, has enough feedback through the bump when scrolling – no issues here.
The buttons are what they should be, buttons. They click, make clicky sounds, and provide feedback. I even like the scroll wheel’s click. It’s not as loud as most. The buttons on both left and right side can be swapped with no buttons. Nice touch, I don’t use the buttons on the right side of the mouse, but I’m sure someone out there appreciates it. I know I’m in the minority here, but I love that there’s a button on the bottom of the mouse. I use it as a G Hub profile switcher. So I can easily toggle between my gaming settings to my normal desktop settings. But I’m not reviewing the software, I’m reviewing the mouse.
The real issue with this mouse; the left click, the right click, and the middle scroll wheel click. Individually, they’re fine. Like I stated before, the buttons are buttons. But the left and right clickers, can also act as the scroll wheel’s middle click. The issue, from what I can tell, stems from the cut out around the scroll wheel. The closer you click towards the middle of the mouse, the higher the chance you will click the scroll wheel as well. If the gap between the scroll wheel and the mouse were just a bit wider…
Let me paint the picture here for you. I use the middle scroll in just about every video game as melee or to pull out my knife is Counter-Strike. So say I’m holding a gun when my opponent comes around the corner, I press down on the left mouse clicker to start spraying bullet.. But then my knife mysteriously came out? Due to the adrenaline, naturally you press down the clicker a little harder than you would casually. So the harder press down, leads to the middle scroll wheel being click down.
This mouse was developed for gaming. This mouse is marketed towards gamers. But in reality, this mouse doesn’t quite cut it.
