Logitech G Pro
Gaming mice are often extravagant affairs. Many of them have more buttons than you can actually use, and it sometimes feels like gaudy aesthetics are favored over simpler, more functional designs. That said, the Logitech G Pro feels like a dream come true for those looking for a mouse that just works.
It combines the best elements of Logitech’s previous mice – the shape of the G100S and the sensor of the G303 – into a mouse targeted at professional FPS gamers. Of course, that’s an awfully specific target audience, and gamers looking for more outlandish lighting effects, a shape more molded to fit your hand, or more buttons will be better satisfied looking elsewhere.
The G Pro is a fairly low slung and compact mouse. It measures just 116.6mm long and 38.2mm high, so that’s something to take note of if you prefer mice with high arches. Having said that, the G Pro takes quite well to both palm and claw grips, and its matte surfaces resist grime even after long hours of gaming.
The optical 12,000DPI PMW 3366 sensor is widely regarded as the best on the market right now, and tracking was flawless across a wide range of scenarios. There was no noticeable acceleration or jitter, regardless of whether we were making quick flicks or tracking moving targets.
A dedicated DPI button sits below the scroll wheel, allowing you to toggle between different DPI steps on-the-fly. The scroll wheel itself is a rubberized affair with distinct ridges, and there’s a nice resistance to each notch, so you won’t find yourself overshooting your target if you use it to scroll through your weapons.
Finally, the two side buttons sit right below your thumb, but some of you may find them a tad bit narrow. More importantly, the left- and right-click buttons produce satisfying feedback, and in no way did we find them too sensitive or mushy.
The LED lighting is subtle, taking the form of two light rails running down the side of the mouse. These are quite tasteful, and along with the illuminated Logitech logo on the mouse’s back, can be customized with the Logitech Gaming Software.
A well-designed mouse that delivers on all fronts.
