As far as gaming mice go, mainstream brands like Razer, Corsair and SteelSeries lead the way. While Logitech isn’t a household name but not quite a lesser-known brand, it’s stuck somewhere in the grey area between the two. What makes this great is that the only way is upwards for the boys in blue, and that is what they’re doing with its G Series. Having already taken quite a few gaming keyboards and mice for a joyride, I finally get my hands on the Logitech G Pro gaming mouse.
Straight out of the gate, the Logitech G Pro is small, lightweight and formidable in its own right. It features similar technology to the higher echelon of G Series gaming mice like the G900 and G903. While the top tier Logitech G gaming mice does come with greater technology like wireless connectivity and better designs, the Logitech G Pro is great for what it is, especially with its asking price.
Smaller Than Normal
I am not used to smaller-sized gaming mice like the Logitech G Pro. I have freakishly large palms and (I guess you can call it long) fingers. Due to its diminutive size, it did take some time for to get adjusted to the size of it. Mind you, I own a Razer DeathAdder as well as a Lancehead, both of which have a much larger footprint than the Logitech G Pro.
Putting aside its small size, the material on the Logitech G Pro is wrapped in hard plastic and topped with a special coating to improve its durability and grip. This definitely works as I never once felt the mouse slipping between my palm. Sadly, the design is very one-dimensional so it’s only suited for right-handed gamers. To give you some perspective, I’m a southpaw but I game with my right hand.
Just imagine the possibilities…
Made for MOBA
After using this mouse for a couple of weeks, which then ended up becoming months, the Logitech G Pro is a great gaming mouse for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games, particularly Dota 2 and Overwatch. I managed to customise the two side buttons on the left of the mouse to two different item usages in Dota 2. This made things significantly easier when playing Dota 2 as I now have easier access to two of my most used item slots while gaming.
Even in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) it was great. The click response was great, allowing me to get Shroud-like flick shots off with a KAR98K. It didn’t require much force or energy to click down on them, meaning I can have a quicker release. The two side buttons were also great for switching between weapons and using medkits. Overall, the Logitech G Pro is a versatile gaming mouse to have, especially when you’re gaming.
Of course, if you’re into Real-time Strategy (RTS) and Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games (MMORPG), you may want to stray away from this mouse.
Through the Logitech Gaming Software, which can be downloaded through Logitech’s website, you can now customise all the settings for the Logitech G Pro here. If you have the full Logitech G Series ecosystem, it makes the Logitech Gaming Software even better. From DPI and pointer levels to RGB settings, surface tuning and even heat mapping, this software does it all.
One neat feature I did enjoy of the Logitech G Pro is its subtle RGB lighting. Logitech strays away from making it glaringly obvious so it went for a different approach, mainly a curved line at the back of the mouse and its Logitech G logo and the base of where your palm sits. Aside from those two areas, the Logitech G Pro features no other RGB lighting around.
